What has American political and social theory become, today? Our traditional political and social theory, democratic republicanism, has been jettisoned and replaced by a new tyranny of the minority, or, we could say: our traditional democratic republicanism has been stood upon its head.
American Political/Social Theory:
Choose one (1):
1. Democracy: the majority rules and the minority is unprotected from the majority. (Something America has never had).
2. Republic: the majority rules and the minority is protected from the majority. (Something America has always had).
3. Reverse Democracy: the minority rules and the majority is unprotected from the minority: Example: one atheist doesn’t like a public nativity scene so no one is allowed to display one. (What America has become, today).
I’m sure we’ve all heard stories about nativity scenes being removed from town squares all across America simply because one atheist might be offended by the sight of the Holy Family at Christmastime. And we all know, too, I think, just how foolish this atheistic appeasement policy is, and how foolish it has been, for many, many years now.
If one gay couple wants to get married, then all citizens must redefine the word “marriage” so as to accommodate the minority gay citizens. If one woman wants to hire a man to kill her unborn baby, then all women must have abortion clinics located within their cities, towns, and villages.
Our future? FOOLISHNESS: America must self-consciously become an irreligious, godless, and immoral nation because one (1) irreligious, godless, and immoral person might exist who is offended by God and by decent, moral people.
Our future? WISDOM: America will be a religious, godly, moral nation, and will protect (and tolerate) the godless and immoral peoples (= fools) in our midst.
Which side are YOU on? Wisdom? or Foolishness?
