There is an inherent problem with all the departments, services and entitlements bred by governments:
They start as noble and necessary programs, but end up as tools of control, oppression and arbitrary evaluation and redistribution.
I understand abuse, violence and crime against children, the most innocent and vulnerable segment in our society: after all, I’m against abortion!
I understand there could be real cases of child neglect, abandonment, extreme discipline and molestation.
I also know that liberals, usually in the forefront of these social programs, tend to overreach, go to far, becoming proactive, militant and intolerant.
Barnevernet has proven to be such an institution. Its reason to exist has changed in time from a protective safety net for nobody’s children to an oppressive police, confiscating somebody’s children, capable of taking away anybody’s children, promoting and imposing self serving laws that make everybody’s children fair game.
Barnevernet is no longer a standby agency, ready to intervene in cases of real abuse, but has become an intentional arm of the state, looking for opportunities, more or less perceived, on a clear mission to justify its own existence.
Therefore, the actions they take against families supposedly abusive are bordering madness only surpassed by fascism and nazism.
I’m from a former communist country, led by a reckless and brutal dictator. I would have never imagined such anti-family, anti-parents and anti-children practices by any government.
Now, if a child shows clear signs of abuse, unless it’s life threatening and/or attacking his/her moral innocence, there would have to be warning and corrective steps before separating the child from the parents.
Instead of using it as a last resort action, when all else failed and the situation proves to be irremediably dangerous for the child, Barnevernet is ignoring social, psychological and emotional bonds and realities of life, deifying itself to be the almighty, all knowing and all powerful entity in charge of everyone’s happiness and well being. That’s arrogance on a luciferic scale.
Out of supposed charity, they intimidate, manipulate and victimize the very children they pretend to protect, just so they could force the intended outcome on every case.
They took advantage of a manipulated, naïve and indolent nation to perpetrate the worst kind of offense against God, His Word and His institutions.
Unfortunately, many Christians and churches had been brainwashed as well or intimidated into silence.
If there is any grace left for Norway and the world at large, Barnevernet and such institutions will share in the end the demise of all oppressive entities. First, the public will become aware of the dark practices and interests of this agency, as we can clearly see signs of such awakening. Second, there will be political pressure to change. The problem is, a heavy bureaucracy with personal and group interests at its core cannot change if its life depended on it! Remember all the oppressive systems that could not reform themselves!
And when the public discontent and ultimately the fury of the people will be unleashed, it’s a matter of time before the whole system crumbles.
That’s why their first advice, kindly offered through their teeth to parents is: if you want your children back, no legal counsel, no negative publicity, just wait patiently until we build our case. If you do not cooperate in your own incrimination, you will never see your children again.
Oh, by the way, if they can… help the parents to turn on each other, that’ll be the day: case solved by forcing a suitable outcome!
What democracy, humane society is working so hard at creating such horrors? Make no mistake about it: Barnevernet is nothing in and of itself! Behind it are the same powers that created the conditions and brought about the legalization of abortions, homosexual marriages and is now destroying the last vestiges of normalcy and decency in this world but even more so, the last obstacles in the way of their new world : the biblical family and the biblical Church!
Unfortunately, the demise of abusive systems is little consolation for their victims.
In the end, the good they were initially created to do, and maybe they did for awhile, was overwhelmingly outweighed by the evil they perpetrated.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a pessimist! I still believe God is on His throne! One day, justice will be served and the wicked will be punished! But first, the cup of iniquity and persecution has to be filled drop by drop. And, from where I stand, Barnevernet is sending a lot of tears in it!
