This line of thinking is what you get when you become your own god. When you are the center of the universe everyone else is a parasite. Everyone.

This poor girl is exhausted at the beginning of this video. She’s exhausted just by having to explain herself to a world too stubborn to accept her 22 year old wisdom that she just adopted from her college professor. There is no joy visible in her. I feel sorry for her.

You will continue to see this argument because they know they’ve lost the #scientific argument. They know the unborn child is human. They’re almost conceding that point. They still say “who cares?” Not them. They may be human but they’re inconvenient parasites so they can be done away with. Sartre said “Hell is other people.” The modern left is doubling down on that concept.

We all need one another. From a reluctant person I can see how we’d all be viewed as parasites. This person wants too much from me which is to say they want something at all.

Life is about love. If you don’t believe in God, you might believe life is about you or your creature comforts (because that is the only kind of comfort available to them.)

CS Lewis wrote:

“There is no safe investment. To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket — safe, dark, motionless, airless — it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell.”
