Children as Property of the Government

The Evils of Socialism

Socialism can dictate just how many children each family must have and these children are the property of the government.

“Let us frankly say that economic equality must inevitably work great changes in our form of marriage—that it will automatically abolish religious superstition—and that children will no longer be left to the care of incompetent parents, but will be recognized as belonging to the state. This for the children’s good and for the public good.”—Industrial Democrat, Sept. 24, 1910, the organ of the Socialists of Oklahoma.

A Dry Morsel and Quietness (Notes on Proverbs)

My Son, Hear My Words: Notes on Proverbs

The following is an excerpt from the book, My Son, Hear My Words: Notes on Proverbs.

Better is a dish of vegetables where love is than a fattened ox served with hatred” (15:17). “Better is a dry morsel and quietness with it than a house full of feasting with strife” (17:1). A poor family is able to sustain itself on little more than a “dish of vegetables” and a “dry morsel.” While such a condition may not be desirable in itself, Solomon makes the point that if there is love and quietness (the absence of strife) within a home, poverty can be endured. More than that, the prosperity that allows one to enjoy feasting is not worth pursuing if it leads to hatred and strife within the home. Too many people sacrifice family in order to pursue success in the things of this life. But no amount of this world’s wealth can replace the blessing of harmony in the home.
