WALTER WILLIAMS: The creeping threat of fascism, communism

Via Billy

Fascism and Communism

Before the question, how about a few statistics? The 20th century was mankind's most brutal century. Roughly 16 million people lost their lives during World War I; about 60 million died during World War II. Wars during the 20th century cost an estimated 71 million to 116 million lives.

The number of war dead pales in comparison with the number of people who lost their lives at the hands of their own governments. The late professor Rudolph J. Rummel of the University of Hawaii documented this tragedy in his book "Death by Government: Genocide and Mass Murder Since 1900." Some of the statistics found in the book have been updated here.

  1. "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Adams

    Among a people generally corrupt liberty cannot long exist. Edmund Burke

    Liberty is of God and shall not exist in His absence. As we have allowed government to push out, replace, and disparage the wisdom of the Almighty it is not a coincidence we find less liberty and more tyranny.

    So being deprived of learning and utilizing the Word of God is it any wonder that the people clamor for more government and less liberty?

    Y'all have a nice day.
