From the difficult-to-watch documentary (available on Netflix), One Child Nation. So profoundly sad and sobering.

For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them

(Romans 2:14–15 ESV)

      They had reasons for not wanting the world to be as aware as the documentary makes us.

    I remember as a teen learning of the child sacrifice to Moloch and thinking how barbaric some dark ancient cultures were. Blind, wicked people.

    But understanding what is really going on today, around the world or in my own hometown, to the gods of government, self, and convenience: it’s too awful to comprehend. I hope this cannot go on for more years until history justly despises us.
