As with all Post-Moderns, Truth is an instrumentality towards what Mr. Obama perceives as a “Higher” goal and the presumptive fig leaf of egalitarianism is as good a diversion as any to mask his accretion of power to the State. Personally, I see nothing particularly noble either in the Invisible Hand of Capitalism or in the covetousness that underlies the Collectivist edifice. Nevertheless, having to either choose between self-interest and altruistic dream castles, I will always heartily choose the former.
We should not forget that these economic systems do not of themselves reflect the economy of God, since our depravity is inconsistent with the redeemed reality that permeates the City of God. Be that as it may, the inequality that results from human cupidity is far more palatable than an enforced homogeneity “for our own good” by men who neither understand the limits of their carnal reach nor the subtle perfidies of the human heart.
