"The unregistered child is a nonentity. The unregistered child does not exist."
-- Bishop Desmond Tutu

Tutu is merely expressing longstanding United Nations policy. But it's somehow especially chilling to hear an alleged man of faith declare that the individual doesn't even live, breathe, or possess a soul until the state says so. Apparently the individual doesn't have the slightest importance within himself, his family, his friends, his community. Only as a databit in a worldwide registry.

Tutu said that while pushing a new plan to fulfill the UN's dream of control. Of course, it's "for the children" and "for everyone's safety." So it's okay.

(Thanks to CASPIAN and Katherine Albrecht for this one.)
