“Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!” has come down to us as the lofty rallying-cry of the French Revolution, but in Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities it is rendered as “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity or Death!” and we all know of the guillotine and its work. Are we seeing the same threat behind today’s Progressives, their Marxism, their Antifa, their Progressive Identity Politics, their Critical Race Theory, and their Black Lives Matter?
Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which He hath made crooked? Ecclesiastes 7: 13
Scott Howard, in his book The Trans-gender Industrial Complex, says on pages 164-5:
The so-called Enlightenment made man the center of the universe, a premise no less ridiculous than the not-long-discarded geocentric theory. When man is the center of the universe, he is God – his own God – and his possibilities are limitless, or at least man perceives them that way. If Man is God, He is created in His own image – or any image He wants to create. We see this near-boundless arrogance embodied in the utopianism of Progress, an increasingly queer (double entendre intended) entropic Progress that is revealing itself as in actuality an accelerator of dissolution and decay. In the ultimate paradox, this hyper-individualistic/narcissistic utopia renders everyone a widget, a number, part of a data set in the architects’ network. Indeed, the word utopia is derived from the Greek ou-topos, meaning ‘no place’ or ‘nowhere.’ Is that not the essence of this globalized project – everywhere becomes nothing?
