Ancient ritual of child sacrifice lives on
RFK Jr. called it “an act of child abuse on a massive scale.” Thursday’s CDC decision to add COVID mRNA vaccines to the childhood schedule was certainly abusive. But it could be argued that it wasn’t just child abuse, but also an avatar of the ancient ritual of child sacrifice.
Before diving deeper into the human sacrifice angle, let’s clarify what just happened: Children are being injected with a potentially dangerous substance that brings them essentially no health benefits whatsoever.

COVID mRNA vaccines are still classified as experimental. That means the CDC is trying to force American children to participate in a scientific experiment—a blatant violation of the Nuremburg Code.
The ostensible justification for forcing entire populations to participate in medical experiments is the “emergency” of the COVID pandemic. MRNA vaccines are only permitted under an Emergency Use Authorization. But not only is the emergency phase of the pandemic obviously over, there never was any children’s health emergency to begin with. A Nature Medicine study using the British National Health Service National Child Mortality Data Base found that the COVID mortality rate in children is .0002%, or approximately two in a million. And of that vanishingly small number of deaths, three-quarters involved chronic health conditions, two-thirds had multiple co-morbidities, and 60% had life-limiting conditions.
So why on earth would anyone mRNA-vaccinate their child? Presumably for the same reason that elders deliberately devastated American children’s educational and emotional-psychological development by closing schools and forcing children as young as two years to wear masks: They believe the damage to children’s health and well-being is worth it (just as Madeleine Albright thought murdering half a million Iraqi children was worth it) because by abusing the children “we are saving grandma” (and to a lesser extent teachers, parents, and other adults).*
Madeleine Albright’s enthusiastic approval of the murder of half a million children, like America’s deliberate devastation of its children during and after the COVID pandemic, appears at first glance to be an oversight. Surely Albright cannot have meant that! Certainly Americans wouldn’t intentionally inflict debilitating handicaps and dangerous experiments on their own kids!
It depends what you mean by words like “deliberately” and “intentionally.” Poets and storytellers have always known what Freud claimed to have discovered in the late 19th century: Much human motivation is unconscious, especially when it involves the darker, atavistic aspects of our psyches.
With that in mind, let’s consider the possibility that something is driving Americans to sacrifice their young. Evidence for that thesis abounds: Not just the way kids have been thrown to the COVID Moloch, but also:
- The fact that Americans are killing almost a million of their unborn children every year;
- The ongoing scandal of ever-expanding routine vaccinations (currently 72 injections of 91 antigens), the probable cause of the explosion of chronic illnesses that has crippled younger generations;
- The way babies and young childen are ripped from their mothers’ arms at ever-earlier ages and consigned to the not-so-tender mercies of commercial day care facilities;
- The way the welfare system and degenerating social mores have conspired to ensure that ever-greater numbers of American children grow up in emotionally-, culturally-, and economically-impoverished single-parent families;
- And finally, the existence of widespread child trafficking and sex slavery, in which the highest level of American political, economic, and journalistic elites are deeply implicated.
Let’s face it: As George Clinton said, America eats its young.
But how is that “sacrifice”? Where does Moloch come in? To answer those questions, we need to review the seminal work of anthropologist-philosopher René Girard, who argued that all cultures are grounded in human sacrifice. As Stanford News noted in its November 2015 obituary:
“Girard was interested in the causes of conflict and violence and the role of imitation in human behavior. Our desires, he wrote, are not our own; we want what others want. These duplicated desires lead to rivalry and violence. He argued that human conflict was not caused by our differences, but rather by our sameness. Individuals and societies offload blame and culpability onto an outsider, a scapegoat, whose elimination reconciles antagonists and restores unity.”
The scapegoat onto which blame is offloaded is typically a powerless, marginalized individual or community. The scapegoat’s innocence, paradoxically, may make them even more of a target: Think of the virgins thrown to volcanos, or the blameless goat laden with the community’s sins and driven into the wilderness. And who is more innocent, powerless, and marginalized than childen? No wonder children are the preferred victims of so many sacrificial societies, from the Moloch-worshipping Canaanites, to the pre-colonial Ibo described in Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart, to the satanic cultists of America’s power elite who gather at places like Bohemian Grove (and, some believe, certain Washington DC restaurants).
