[COMMENT: The invention of brainwashing in the late 1800's has ensured the tyrant the ability to enslave millions without their knowing it. We are right in that process today in America, and I predict the same results -- unless there is a powerful intellectual, moral, and spiritual renewal abroad. We must take the offensive on all three fronts. NOW. Both quotes below apply to us NOW. Men with souls molded by the secular Enlightenment will have no vocation for freedom -- it is too costly for a comfort-loving people.
There is a Biblical enlightenment, the reunion of
truth-to-love and of reason-to-revelation (see
), which is waiting in the wings.
When it comes on stage, the whole landscape will change. The problem is
not the totalitarians, it is God's warriors -- apathetic and ignorant
"The ideal tyranny is that which is ignorantly self-administered by its victims. The most perfect slaves are, therefore, those which blissfully and unawaredly enslave themselves." – Dresden James
In Our Culture, What’s Left of It, Theodore Dalrymple reviewed Marquis de Custine’s work La Russie en 1839, a deeply perceptive analysis of Russian society under the czars. “[O]n the basis of his understanding of the Russian character, Custine could prophesy [in 1843] that within two or three generations a violent cataclysm would occur that would spell not liberation but a renewed and more terrible form of despotism, for men with souls molded by czarism would have no vocation for freedom,” Dalrymple wrote.
