Self-contradictory government

Whether for good or for filthy lucre, political office (or any government position) most of all attracts those who seek power over others.

C. S. Lewis pointed out that the worst atrocities come from people who supposedly are motivated by good goals, since they use those goals as a salve for their conscience.

Ends justifying the means,

They had to destroy the town to save it,

They put poor Terry Schiavo out of her misery,

They have to kill the baby still inside to save it from a horrible existence in a horrible world,

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few,

They had to put the unskilled out of work to enforce the living wage,

They have to steal from the productive sectors to support “good government”,

They have to bomb and invade and disrupt and shoot suspicious natives to give them “democracy”,

They had to stop a bad guy from developing nuclear weapons even though the CIA warned us off,

They had to inject a few blacks with syphilis (Memphis) (and we promise we won’t do it again?),

They had to lie about Gulf of Tonkin to help the war industry, er, I mean, stop Communism,

They (Custer’s troops) had to kill the women and children in the village because there weren’t any braves there,

They had to threaten Salt Lake City to get them to give up polygamy,

They had to destroy the economy and make everybody poor to eliminate inequality (stop looking at federal salaries!),

They had to fudge the numbers so people could be more optimistic about the economy,

They had to rob the victims to save the banking system,

They had to set up central banks including the Federal Reserve to hide their theft and corrupt the government,

…Never ending story…

But Jesus is coming back soon, and

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”- Psalm 9:17.

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. -Isaiah 1:18
