Are we really a “progressive, enlightened society” if we’re becoming more violent, divisive, and lawless?
As a person matures, we expect greater measures of peacemaking, selflessness, and prudence. What does it mean when our heroes and leaders act like toddlers and are celebrated for doing so?
What have we become when we tolerate the use of guns as gavels and the abuse of both? Have we progressed so far past our nation’s founding that “liberty and justice for all” is an antiquated ideal?
See, neither liberalism nor conservatism can address our problems as a people. Empires routinely rise and fall, and they do so from within.
Sin can’t be defeated on our terms.
