“Whatever worldly thing we may covet — zealously striving to obtain and then retain — never seems to bring an end to our desires. Covetousness, envy, jealousy, and greed always escalate into a vicious spiral, as we seek greater and greater gratification but find less and less contentment. . . Striving to acquire the things of the world not only does not bring lasting happiness and peace, but it drives us to seek more. When ‘all we’ve ever wanted’ is grounded in the temporal trappings of this world, it is never enough!” ―
“The first act by which the state really comes forward as the representative of the whole of society – the taking possession of the means of production in the name of society – is also its last independent act as a state.” — Friedrich Engels, Anti-Dühring (1877)
“Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. It is in vain to say that democracy is less vain, less proud, less selfish, less ambitious, or less avaricious than aristocracy or monarchy.” — John Adams, Founding Father.
Recently we watched the below video titled “She Nails It” done by an unknown American woman.
The woman in the video, who is “facing the prospect of not living in the United States”, says that “something evil has invaded our nation.” She is seeing our Constitution Republic fade away.
I decided to evaluate what this evil is.
Evil is based upon the three C’s — Communism, Socialism and Democracy.
“C” stands for Covet.
Coveting appears in the Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments (KJV) were written by God on two tablets of stone and given to Moses on Mount Sinai.
Exodus 20: 2-17 presents the Ten Commandments (KJV) thusly:
2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
13 Thou shalt not kill.
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
The Bedrock of Evil Government is Coveting.
Currently there are five Communist countries in the world: China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea and Vietnam.
In Critique of the Gotha Program (1875) Karl Marx wrote, “In a higher phase of communist society, after the enslaving subordination of the individual to the division of labor, and therewith also the antithesis between mental and physical labor, has vanished; after labor has become not only a means of life but life’s prime want; after the productive forces have also increased with the all-around development of the individual, and all the springs of co-operative wealth flow more abundantly – only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be crossed in its entirety and society inscribe on its banners: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!”
The Pew Research Center reports, “As of the end of 2017, 96 out of 167 countries with populations of at least 500,000 (57%) were democracies of some kind, and only 21 (13%) were autocracies. Nearly four dozen other countries – 46, or 28% – exhibited elements of both democracy and autocracy. Broadly speaking, the share of democracies among the world’s governments has been on an upward trend since the mid-1970s, and now sits just shy of its post-World War II record (58% in 2016).”
Interestingly Pew lists the United States as a “democracy” when in fact America is a Constutional Republic.
America is the only Constitutional Republic in the world.
The United States of America has become the primary target of the evil doers. Those who want to take power away from the people, as outlined in the U.S. Constitution, and turn it into a democracy where 50% + 1 person has total control of we the people.
Big government, be it Communist, Socialist or a Democracy, covets everything.
Big government covets:
- All means of production.
- The individual freedoms of the citizen.
- An individual’s religious beliefs and morality.
- The individual’s worldly possessions.
- The individual’s ability to defend themselves.
- The traditional family of one man, one woman and their biological children.
In order to become supreme, in order to maintain power, in order to maintain control of virtually everyone and every thing, big government must become bigger and bigger and bigger.
It is imperative that every evil government covet its neighbour’s house, covet its neighbour’s wife, his manservant, his maidservant, his ox, his ass, any thing that is its neighbour’s.
Coveting leads to replacing God with big government. Big government is by definition a “graven image.” Big government does not keep God’s commandments, rather it creates its own mandates, policies and laws that go against God’s commandments. Big government takes Lord God’s name in vain. Big government does not shew mercy unto thousands of them that love God. Big government does not want us to labour, and do our work because it wants what we have earned to expand big government.
Big government does not remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Big government kills those who disobey.
Big government wants us to commit adultery, in order to destroy the traditional family.
Finally, big government bear false witness against we the people.
Today America is only nation on this earth standing in the way of those who want to covet everyone and everything.
