The Soviet Union voted itself out of existence in 1991. In his book, The One and the Many, published in 1978, Rushdoony wrote this sobering little essay.
Who else in 1978 was predicting that the mighty U.S.S.R. would collapse, and soon? The Carter administration was trying to work out the best surrender deal that it could make with Russia. And Rushdoony didn’t just predict the collapse; he told his readers why it would collapse.
All societies founded on humanism will collapse, because their foundation is not Jesus Christ, the rock, but just a lot of shifting sand.
Observing the chaos in our country’s streets today, and hearing the lunatic outcries of the Far Left Crazy–well, think about this essay. Think hard.

It has always been so, always will be. Man cannot sustain himself. The “fool” who says there is no god, and I am self sufficient is nothing but a fool.
If I didn’t already live in a Christian conservative state, I think I would move to South Dakota. If Biden/Harris would win in November (not going to happen) I think I would move to Poland.
Rushdoony always insightful!
