Thought For The Day

Socialism vs. The Church

By believing man educable, socialism takes man in his essential nature and in his existential condition as down low bad. By believing man redeemable, The Church takes man in his essential nature as up high good but in his existential condition as fallen. Socialism aims to improve man. The Church aims to free man. Socialism wants to mask man’s essential and existential badness with a veneer of habits of civility. The Church wants to free man from attachment to his existential condition so that his grandeur, his essential nature, freely shines forth. Socialism is terribly pessimistic about man because it takes man’s essential nature — bad — to be also his existential condition, however well-masked by education. The Church is wonderfully optimistic about man because she takes his existential condition — fallen — as fleeting and his essential nature — good, divinely good — as free-able and eternal.

Socialism starts with hatred of The Church. It is Misochristianity. Pity.

Socialism — along with its ally Mohammedanism — has a snowball’s chance in hell of overrunning The Church. It thinks insultingly of man.

    It is no small wonder that socialism/progressivism/fascism/communism fear Christianity and attack it constantly. They fear and envy free men.

      They want to have total power over you, and they can’t if you believe in a higher power.
