Anarchy Leads to Tyranny
Amongst the many lessons we can learn from the French Revolution, is that economic bankruptcy prepares the way for riots and revolution. Anarchy in the streets inevitably leads to tyranny in government. As we witness the rise of regurgitated revolution and a new generation of cultural commissars for communism, we need to understand how atheism, economic determinism and dialectical materialism guide revolutions to this day. What role does Social Darwinism play in revolution? In what way are all revolutions related to the French Revolution of 1789? Do these revolutions ever produce what they promise? What attracts so many people to support revolutionary movements? How can we best reach those who are caught up in these movements? What Biblical teachings would help us to understand the proper role of government? What can we practically do to be part of the solution, rather than the problem? What hope is there for the future?
“While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption…”
2 Peter 2:19
