The inhumanity of man seems to be growing and tolerated at the highest levels. The evil even occupies the WH and Congress, ignoring all criticism and the common good or decency, putting a small minority ahead of millions - under trump.
The inhumanity often cites a “religious” base as rationale for their actions. That claim of religion has justified some of the most depraved actions, often against the most vulnerable of every demographic, black, white, native American, male and female, young and old - the following story/expose’ made me react and rocked me to my core, and I want to pass it along - even as enormously disturbing as it is - there are other crimes being committed this very moment. Claiming such heinous crimes this example portrays “are past” is not enough - and not true - a culture of abuse often becomes part of a system, institution, business, culture, or government. This depraved inhumanity is growing before our eyes at this moment in another guise…
"Steve Smith was just eight when his mother left him in the care of Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch, a Texas institution for at-risk children. From the moment he got there in 1959, the place didn’t sit right with him.
“I cried probably more than any boy that I know that came out [of] there, just homesick, and I didn’t take it very well.”
Almost immediately upon his arrival, Steve was subject to the first of many beatings. For the following decade, he endured regular and arbitrary violence at the hands of staff. He also had to watch helplessly as his younger brother, Rick, was beaten by adults until he couldn’t stand.
Along with the physical punishment, Steve’s pets were killed, and his friends were worked to the bone in atrocious conditions. Some boys, including Rick Smith, were also sexually abused while under the care of the ranch."
“Steve and I will die. We’ll go to our grave and I’ll guarantee you it’ll be one of the things we think about when we take that last breath: how they got away with it.”
