Bizarro is to Superman as Marxism is to Christianity

Karl Marx was an enemy of liberty. The foundation for his worldview began with the belief that humanity is God. With that notion in place, “we” mere mortals determine right and wrong. And the greatest expression of human wisdom is “the collective.” Think Star Trek’s The Borg: “You will be assimilated and your individual distinctive will be added to our own. Resistance is Futile! Your life as it has been is over!!!” Wow, doesn’t that sound great?!! This is why communist nations must build walls around their countries to force the individuals to stay inside to “enjoy the benefits!” In Marxism, the individual is subservient to the society. Rights don’t come from God to an individual, but from the collective (those in charge) to whoever they want. And since “they” give rights, “they” can also take them away.

Godonomics is built on a Biblical world-view rooted in individualism. The individual is far more valuable than the state. C.S. Lewis says it best in Mere Christianity:

Again, Christianity asserts that every individual human being is going to live for ever, and this must be either true or false. . . . And immortality makes this other difference, which, by the by, has a connection with the difference between totalitarianism and democracy. If individuals live only seventy years, then a state, or a nation, or a civilization, which may last for a thousand years, is more important than an individual. But if Christianity is true, then the individual is not only more important but incomparably more important, for he is everlasting and the life of the state or civilisation, compared with his, is only a moment.

Since Marx thought force and coercion of other’s liberty would serve the “greater good” of the society, he advocated (in the Communist Manifesto), for the “forcible overthrow” of all existing social conditions. In other words, he was saying, Eliminate God, Family, and Church, and replace them with Statism and Government.

Marx’s economic theories were the outgrowth of his entire worldview. It’s bad economic policy, built on top of inaccurate psychology (man is basically good, it’s just his environment that’s the problem), and horrible theology. The results always lead to less liberty, less prosperity, less generosity, a huge government, a giant debt, and a downward spiral of morality. marx.jpg

Many niavely think Jesus was a communist….. Hardly, just as Bizarro was the evil counterpart of Superman, so Marxism is an evil archenemy of Christianity.

Do you pay B’net for the chance to sell your stuff on here? You should have to pay a lot to push your tired religiosity.
