Obama can’t offer utopia [UPDATED]Published 11:16am Thursday, November 1, 2012 Updated 1:17pm Thursday, November 1, 2012
President Obama is the chief advocate for a utopian society in the United States. Most Democrat politicians, and quite a few Republicans, advocate utopian ideals.
Some utopia advocates down through the ages have been Plato, Sir Thomas More, Adolph Hitler, Woodrow Wilson, Teddy Roosevelt and Karl Marx, just to name a few.
During the 20th century alone, tens of millions of people have died or have been murdered in order advance utopian ideas and policies.
The greatest advocate for Utopia in the history of the world is Jesus Christ. Jesus says that we are all sinners and that we won’t experience utopia until we reside with Him, in Heaven. There can be no utopia here on earth because we are all sinners.
Obama is doing a wonderful job of selling utopian ideas to voters. Take from the rich and give to the poor, everyone equal. For that to work, we have to assume that all people are selfless and perfectly
Many advocates for utopian ideas put little stock in Christ and His Word, but without morality as expressed in the Ten Commandments, the communal ideas that Liberals are pushing are unworkable.
Obama has made a career out of bearing false witness about others. He tries to persuade people to covet and envy and if reelected, he promises to steal from others in order to give to you and me.
The moral frailties, which afflict most of us, and which Obama exploits, are the very weaknesses which make his utopian ideas unworkable. Unworkable, that is, without resorting to violence upon human freedom and liberty, by the state.
No utopian system has ever worked for any length of time. The Soviet Union, Cuba, East Germany and others, all tried to operate utopian systems and turned their nations into hell on earth. Brute force and evil methods of the worst sort were used by those states in order to enforce their utopian ideas.
If Obama and his ideas prevail, we will probably be more equal, but also generally poorer and we will all suffer from diminished freedom and liberty.
History says that utopian states usually degenerate into dictatorship. The state has power, the state exercises power and the state is corrupted by power. How close are we?
