i prefer the old jewish system of governance. a section of land was designated for each person, or persons tribe, and that land was theirs eternally.
they could lease their land, but they would get it back in the jubilee (fifty years)
that way no one could enslave anyone.
a mans property was his own, and he had the right to the work of his hands.
(that is where myself and communism depart, wealth distributed by force is a violation of this law)
the farmers were commanded by God to not reap the corners of their fields, so the poor could come and eat.
there were many laws and regulations to help and protect the poor, orphans and widows.
however, a man had God given rights which could not be justifiably disregarded by man.
this was reflected in the overall law,
and so the governing bodies did not violate or compromise a mans personal freedom.
only strife will follow such violation. where is my authority to claim this? history is my authority.
yet forgetfulness mixed with this complacent generation who has been birthed by this over-zealous socialist goverment will cost us.
i am no hard line, right wing conservative. but at the same time i do not deny the damage this socialist goverment has inflicted on my country.
