By |October 6th, 2014|

The Judeo-Christian Worldview and Economics

By |March 20th, 2014|

 

 Socialism embodies a lust for power based upon the deceit by man of man. Capitalism embodies a lust for wealth based upon the service by man to fellow man. Socialism concentrates power and wealth for a few. Capitalism diffuses power and wealth for many. These two opposing systems hold the promise of blessings or curses to the nation that adopts them.

So the other day he wrote me to ask, “How is the current US President viewed in Colorado, specifically knowing your state’s political view. You know I was always interested in U.S. politics, elections.” Since my friend is a leading expert in his country on western politics and often serves as an advisor to his government, I felt compelled to respond: […]

A Socialist President? Thinking It Through

By |January 15th, 2010|

(’76 Contributor) During a recent “Meet the Press” the host, with feigned indignation, asked a Senator, “You’re not calling the President a Socialist, are you?” Without waiting for a response, he repeated the question for emphasis. This performance highlights the hijacking of political semantics. “Socialist” was replaced by “Liberal” which, in turn, became a pejorative, and now “Progressive” is preferred, and used in titles of dozens of political and welfare advocacy groups.
