Values, Part II

Probably the key difference between the values of Provo and the values of Detroit is that the vast majority of people is that the former understand that they were created by God, that they are His children, and that they owe God fidelity and allegiance and should follow the command to love one another as I (Jesus) have loved you.

On the surface, it is easy to claim that the liberal big government welfare state is following this command as well. But as any student of such governments knows, the government granted entitlement system is long way from inalienable God given rights that government should protect (life, liberty and property or the pursuit of happiness). The shrill anti-Christian statements comeing from the left its spokesman (like Howard Dean), suggest that the ultimate source of morality is the individual in a nihilistic way and not God who has granted us free will to choose to follow Him or not.

The values of the folks in Provo are more in line with the traditional liberal ideas of the Founding Fathers. The values of the establishment and its supporters in Detroit have a bizzare mix of radical individualism and socialism that only makes sense in light of the writings of Antonio Gramsci.

I'm not Mormon, but I'll stick with the general values of Provo, thank you.
