The choice of 2013

“The choice our world will bring home to us is the choice between God and human government. Whom do we put our trust in to make life right for us? The questions we will be faced with are: What is the nature of man? Does our nature vary with our position on earth? Are we omniscient if we are in government, but foolish and ignorant if we aren’t? Do our rights depend on what our fellow men want us to have, or do our rights inhere in us even when our fellows would take them away? If we believe the latter, by what authority do we do so?”

J. E. Dyer, “A People on the Precipice”

(Read the whole thing.)
