I am a guy. I am liberal on most social issues an rampantly conservative on others and I believe thus it goes with most people. I believe most peoples behavior is their business as long as they don’t harm or inconvenience others. But I do make hard-nosed judgments about the wellbeing of the culture that raised me. I like the Judeao-Christian values I was taught. I know history therefore I have at my disposal knowledge of what works and what doesn’t work.
The bitter fact is that some cultures are superior to others. An uncomfortable fact that has been found in history again and again. Socialism a system tried on many civilizations has failed one hundred percent of the time. Only poverty and civil strife follow the installation of socialism in any group of people. And the flaw was spoken by Margaret Thatcher, “The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other peoples money to spend.” Pay people not to work and the majority won’t work. Pay people less and less to excel and less people will go to the trouble of working for money that will be taken away for other peoples benefit. Monarchy’s make for great recruitment of civil warriors and eventually ….great capture shots like this one of Saddam. The Marzest inspired forceful redistribution of wealth will fail as long as some want more. As a matter of fact I have never resided in a community in which the greater percentige did’t want more. So one conives to get more goodies and others, seeing his benefit become unhappy and determined to squeeze a little more out of the system so they can get more stuff……and on and on ad infinitum.
Biblical Christianity has many flaws that I cannot ignore. but overall one just has to look at the state of events in the world.
In areas dominated by a Christian culture you have growth, discovery and decency. Now, lets take a look at the middle east. When they aren’t conspiring to bomb various innocent non-combatants at various crowds, they are taking out hits on their arch nemesis within Islam. The Sunnies hate the Shias and vise versa and a lot of ordinance is passed between the two as they blow up their respective church’s, schools, and restaurants. Israel the great nemesis of all Muslims is the place where Muslims in residence in Israel have more protected civil rights than any other Muslims in the middle east.
