Our friend “Unknowable” sent us this: Harvard business professor Clay Christensen on the role of religious freedom in American democracy. It’s not a democracy, but for the time being we can give him a pass on that.
Why is America free? Simple. Because most people voluntarily choose to obey the law. Why do they choose to obey the law? Because that’s what they’ve been taught is good and right, as Christians and Jews. Take away their religion and they won’t believe that anymore, they won’t obey the law unless you make them.
And you can’t hire enough policemen for that.
