“Communism teaches and seeks two objectives: unrelenting class warfare and the complete eradication of private ownership.” ~Pope Pius XI
Ah, the Christmas Season … many, especially the retail industry, look forward to it all year long. For the hardworking Americans, whose work ethic built this country … it’s a time to reap the benefits of their labor, with which … as the most generous nation on earth … they bless countless people.
But a mindset that’s been around since Cain and Abel, continues to grow … with the efforts of politicos … that encourages the antithesis of benevolence. The worldview that encourages envy, covetousness and jealousy: The springboard of the thief.
I’m referring to Class Warfare. The tool of Marxists, Socialists and Communists to seize power over all the people by creating and stoking the flames of envy of those who are successful. The manifestation is green-eyed monsters who feel they have a “right” to someone else’s property, whether goods or money.
This is the mindset of the Taker, not the Giver … as can easily be seen with the donation record of those who support Class Warfare: They are not the munificent, but rather the mingy. They facilitate a populace who feels entitled to grab your credit card number, your Christmas packages, your wallet, or shoplifts because, after all, the victim, whether an individual (who has more than them) or a store (that employs workers who support families), “robs” people by their prices, so they can afford the loss and the “score’” is evened.
Probably even more repugnant than the miscreant mindset facilitated is the evocation of egalitarianism as a “Christian” principle.
Well here’s a bulletin for those supporting this view: Aside from your theology being grossly awry, your ideas enable and encourage envy, greed and covetousness … which foster crime. Charity comes from the heart, NOT the government.
So, avarice authorities out there: How about facilitating a spirit of giving as dictated by Judeo-Christian principles and leave the giving to the people … their hearts have always spoken better than your maniacal mandates.
