Kindertotenlieder

Songs on the Death of Children. In his book The Devil’s Pleasure Palace, Michael Walsh opines that the German Romantic Movement of the late 19th and early 20th Century, foretold the decline of Western Civilization. Two stories in the news today perhaps reflect how far we have fallen. Both stories are horrifying.

Dad Admits Killing Daughter Who Beat Cancer is a story from New York. Reason? Kid hogged all the attention.

Belgium sees the first case of a minor being granted Euthanasia.

And the stories are on the same page of the same news site. Civilization? Not so much these days.
