The Left and the Right are in a battle of the soul.
That is all.
Leonard Cohen stated this a while ago in his song “Everybody Knows”
The Battle is raging over one single item.
Are we to be governed by a Final Authority or not?
The Rule of Laws of the shifting emotions of lawless mobs.
That is the question.
Now a long time ago two very lawless English men decided to get us away from laws and rules and bring us under the emotions of a religion. We needed to be freed from the absolute Final Authority.
Ever since the first two decided to be educated and ultimately lawless nothing has changed.
The Unknown Book is not read, it’s contents are not considered. Therefore the outcomes of all the lawlessness is not known. The lawless think that by allowing everyone to set the standards of their lives by demanding you obey the rules they set for themselves we all will be free.
Yet, it is not so.
The fool hath no delight in knowledge… The fool is always the fool.
The right hold to a Final Authority.
In Western Civilization it is the rule of law. That rule of law is embodied in a couple of documents that changed the world. The Magna Carta and the American Constitution.
But NO ONE and I do mean NO ONE is bringing up the problem for both groups of every persuasion.
The world isn’t even used in pulpits anymore because of its implications.
But we all sin, all of us. Without exception or distinction. Everyone sins.
Sin takes both Left and Right down the plug hole and there are no survivors.
