How ancient stories converge with the present time (Ezekiel 18:20)
From Unlearning Communism:
Every human being is individually responsible for the consequences of their decisions and for the final outcome of the quality of their lives. There is no inherited burden of the past. In other words, individuals are not guilty by association in the eyes of the God. Whether you’re religious or not, significance of such thinking is profound for the humanity and Founding Fathers of the United States of America were aware of tremendous importance of this idea. This is why they’ve created the country and the whole society predicated on it.
"The soul who sins is the one who will die. The son will not share the guilt of the father, nor will the father share the guilt of the son."
Reparations should be paid for something that happened 300 years ago, not even by direct ancestors. Why not asking for reparations from Mongols, or Vikings or Turks?
The answer is simple: all other nations (except for the Western Nations nowadays) are following the same, well tested ancient logic, more than millennia old, while us, nominally advanced societies are conducting the experiments on a massive scale in which we are the lab rats.
