Rushdoony: ‘The End Game of Humanistic Law’

R. J. Rushdoony: Champion of Faith and Liberty – Christ Rules

R.J. Rushdoony’s essays, written in the 1970s and 80s and collected in Roots of Reconstruction, seem even more applicable today than they were back then. Like this one, for instance:

What are the three guiding principles of humanistic law? Answers Rushdoony: control of other people (the more, the better), redistribution of wealth and property, and enforced conformity.

You’re not going to tell me that’s changed, are you?

Humanism is this weird ideology–or rather, a species of false religion–that preaches the perfectibility of man by man–through coercion, violence, and deceit. Breakin’ the eggs to make the omelet. Because the end game is an earthly paradise, any and all means to that end are justified.

Even stealing an election.

  1. I don’t think anyone believes in the perfectibility of man and some kind of paradise on earth anymore, like they did in the ’40’s & 50’s. It’s now a power game to see who can appease enough people to follow their narrative. Like the old saying goes, “He who has the gold makes the rules.” The Billionaires are colluding to set up a world gov’t system that serves their interests. Like George Soros says, he feels like he is a god. The Great Reset promises everything but will deliver a 199 years of darkness. Thank God, He is not going to let this happen. It is time to roll up your rapture rugs and get to work building the kingdom of God on the earth as it is in heaven.
