The social and civil institutions of a people reflect its spiritual commitments. Thus, when we are told that socialism is gaining traction in our land, we can be certain that we have again changed our gods and further departed from our original covenants. Socialism is a messianic view of the state. It is the hideous offspring of evolutionary science, materialistic philosophy, and humanistic religion.
We live in a discontented age. Mass communication floods men’s souls with images and delusions of wealth and pleasure that are unattainable for most and deadly for all. But now they are held out as rights – to have what you want and to take, by force if necessary, what others have withheld from you or your ancestors. The rich and powerful have created financial and political institutions to ensure their prosperity and power; the struggling masses of humanity now demand their fair share.
