In my two prior pieces on social justice, I discussed how such ideas are antithetical to Judeo-Christian values. In this piece I'm going to talk about the results of those good intentions. Repeated failures that are continually ignored by the Utopian left as they shove their fantasy down our throats.
recent experience with such failures. The Plymouth colony, that William Bradford founded started with _no_ private property rights. It was all communal. He like modern day social justice, anti property rights Christians, misunderstood the Bible and Christ. Ask yourself an obvious question, if God wanted us to live with no property rights, shouldn't natural law support such behavior? If God wanted us to have communal property and to be interchangeable bricks in the wall, wouldn't such behavior succeed in reality?
When societies reject Private Property over the "common good", the result is abundance of misery and despair. Is that what God wants? for everyone in society to suffer? If Bradford's experiment in rejecting Private Property was alone, it'd be easy to say, "We just need the right person to lead our centrally planned society!". Who is that right person? Why are you so quick to abandon the personal sovereignty that God granted you? The uneducated masses always forget history, and are always rife to repeat it.
|These people are waiting in line for toilet paper! Go Socialism!|
enough toilet paper to clean up the mess they've created. They've abandoned individual sovereignty - as a direct result crime towards other men and women is on the rise. All of this makes sense, from a biblical world view. When you reject the moral value of private property, people also abandond common decency toward others. The civil society breaks down, as it's replaced with stealing and looting and raping others.
There's nothing greater than the voluntary interaction between two people in capitalism. Between the baker and the customer. Between the fry cook and his or her customer. Voluntary interactions bring together people that probably ordinarily hate one another. That's the system the left wants to destroy?
