triumph of the ruling class

I highly recommend reading yesterday’s Breakpoint Column by Chuck Colson entitled, “Where Government Doesn’t Belong: Triumph of the Ruling Class.” The column insightfully links Tom Daschle’s tax problem to a liberal ideology embraced by many in both parties that is responsible for a massive transfer of wealth and power from the private sector to the public one. Colson rightly critiques this liberal ideology based on the key Reformation principle of “sphere sovereignty” – the idea that the authority of given entities (like the government) extends through one sphere of life, but not through all spheres of life. As Chuck says, we citizens of the United States ought not, in a panic, cede our sovereignty to a governing class “all to willing to accept our acquiescence.”
