Why Study History

Throughout history governments and individuals either succeed or fail due to how well or how poorly they manage the levels of power between them. So the smart student who does not want a pile of work studies history because it continues to repeat itself. They need only memorize the names of the leaders and their various nations and data which changes from decade to decade. Some smart math student could create an algorithm to show at what point this never ending conflict will move in a different direction. History does not know the word status quo.

Governments limit individuals, and individuals seek more liberty.

This is the conflict in a nutshell, balancing the strength of the individual and the long arm of the government. When there is no balance, the nation is out of whack. Every bureaucracy withdraws some liberty from the individual which does not make it wrong, unless it is too much liberty being given up or it was confiscated. The arguments against socialism include this quote from Ben Franklin,  “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Liberty lost is very hard to regain.

Every political contest involves these two elements

History shows this clearly. The lone cave dwelling human and his family is a government at the lowest level, but for any progress to be maintained, warfare against a predatory neighbor requires that these family units gather together to form a mutually advantageous group. To do this requires that each person give up to the group some authority, power, and of course money and resources. It requires a leadership team as well. If the team or the leader becomes too strong the society stagnates; if the enemies gain ascendancy, the society breaks up. So the larger the governmental unit, or the more prosperous in the case of the USA, the stronger that group is.

A closed society stays that way

For smaller societies constant mismanagement of resources and unrest keep it in failure mode. Afghanistan has been involved in war for 60 years and is going nowhere. They cannot or will not negotiate a balance between the bureaucracy and the individuals in spite of considerable involvement from other nations, both for good and for ill. It was illegal to teach women for example. The USA forces repeated efforts to stop that and start schools for girls met with guns and knives. This is in spite of well-documented proof that children raised by educated women are more successful than those who are not. But then today’s men would need to be educated before they would know that wouldn’t they? So a closed society stays that way, forever in poverty, isolated and legitimately afraid of their neighbors.

Participatory democracy balances interests

Governments that function best keep this in mind which is why participatory democracy works so much better. When people take part in their government they can cut it down when it gets out of hand. That explains the election President Trump and Boris Johnson.

Today institutions are under fire

Other nations are also seeing their citizens rebel against bureaucratic intrusion. The European Union might be blaming other nations for their inertia but their own institutional bias caused these problems. Some economic prophets say the EU will eventually end, or there will be European anarchy. It all depends on whether leadership comes to the fore to negotiate a peace. Today, 2019, across the planet citizens are increasingly resisting government intrusion and laws.

People locked into institutional mindsets scoff at the “populists” and right wing labels for everything they do not like but when you scrape away the paint, you find it is the age-old conflict between individuals and institutions. In Venezuela the bureaucracy and the army stayed put, and the population left. They became refugees to other nations. In Syria, the government simply bombed the citizens who questioned its behavior. The nation is a pile of rubble today. Both Iran and Saudi Arabia are in a standoff but both nations thought they could embrace and calcify the past. Can’t be done. Time marches on with or without you.

Literature confirms history

This is not new. The Greek drama Antigone (circa 440 B.C.E.) covers the same turf. Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet shows how private lives were damaged by cultural considerations, which describes much of European history. The USA has managed to keep individualism front and center even though is has gone to extremes. For example, there is no scientific basis for gender reassignment and this will eventually collapse. It is individualism run amok. When individualism gets out of hand it is called anarchy which degenerates into civil war.

Imperialism is a form of war

Roman Imperialism, British Imperialism, Soviet Imperialism and now Chinese Imperialism all began as economic adventures and developed into chattel societies. All but the Chinese variety is gone, and even that is being tested.

The Pacific Rim is tired of being used; Vietnam was the first communist government to resist the long arm of Chinese presumption. Now Hong Kong is conducting its own, largely successful protest. Of course there are thugs and hooligans involved in all these conflicts because those loners just love a fight, but underneath there is real angst which must be corrected. The individual has suffered too long. The pendulum will swing back but today it is all about war against institutions.


Why History is superior

In my experience there is nothing scientific about Political Science. Politics is often called an art because the individuals must balance the competing interests of diverse and often intractable participants. The Bureaucracy Loving among us do not realize how difficult this is because they conceive as governments having always the bayonet to make their word stick. Individuals have no weapons but they have a voice. The Baltic States won their freedom in the 1990s by singing! They sang in unison and the Soviet masters were too cowed to take them on in spite of their tanks, guns and bayonets.

Investigations of corruption

Currently in the United States the hubris of the Washington Bureaucracy is increasingly under investigation – the CIA, the FBI and the DOJ all involved in an attempt to overthrow the presidency of Donald Trump. The evidence is mounting. Nervous journalists are wondering whether they can personally afford to touch this. Will it mean an end to their career? They could be too close to the bureaucracy and endanger their jobs.

You see how this works. The Deep State is an example of how institutions become enemies of their own governments and people. Many nations do not have corrective options in place. Because of American diversity and freedoms we can handle this kind of corruption, in spite of it taking a great deal of time.

The Prince of Peace

Finally, this blog is about the Mind of God. The Greek plays predate Christianity, so it is not a religious issue, unless you believe the government is God, and some do; or perhaps you believe each individual is god, and that happens as well.

The Bible clears this conflict up for the individual. In the world of the God directed person, God is the government. He makes the decisions based on an omniscient mind and directs the person in the way he or she should go. It is a tricky little dance to keep oneself in the will of God and skirt or affect as the case may be the world and its Institutional vs. Individual war. It means living in the multiverse of the spiritual about which I will have much to say in the future.

Confusing Reality with Symbols

In a wonderfully sarcastic piece from Facebook, black politician and military veteran Allen West writes of how foolish the celebration over the removal of the Confederate flag from South Carolina, confederateflagas though it had the least ability to effect the massive changes American needs in race relations and the ills of the minority communities, so I copy it here.

Alan West writes:

“Yippee, the Confederate battle flag has now been removed from the grounds of the South Carolina State Capitol. And, just like that, it solves the problem of black-on-black crime and killings. Now we’ll see the out-of-wedlock birthrate in the black community drop from 75%. There will be better educational opportunities and schools in South Carolina’s black communities and all across America.

The black unemployment rate will drop —especially the almost 40% black teenage unemployment rate. We’ll now see an economic entrepreneurial boon in the inner cities because the Confederate battle flag’s been lowered. And there’ll be no more gangs of blacks beating on whites — as we saw in Ohio recently.

Yep, the liberal progressive media shouted “squirrel” and an entire nation went a running. All the yelling and shouting by the crowds was evidence of those who lack grace, respect and dignity. Former South Carolina Gamecocks football coach Lou Holtz remarked that when you get to the end zone, you should act like you’ve been there before. So what does the lowering of the Confederate battle flag have to do with the killing of little seven-year-old Amari Brown in Chicago — anyone know when his funeral is?”

We are already good at substituting for reality

Of course we don’t know where his funeral is because we have enjoyed a life of substitutions.  The Church, that great community change agent, allows Bible study to substitute for personal holiness, attendance at services to substitute for obeying God’s personal commands to us, and fellowship with believers as a substitute for fellowship with the Lord himself.

We barely pay attention anymore to the masses of lawbreakers released early from prison to commit fresh crimes.  79,000 illegal felons have been re-released into the population instead of being deported.  We have voted and instructed the Congress to act in one way and it looks the other way. Our President seems barely to notice the country or its wishes; he’s as determined to get a deal with Iran as Iran is determined to wipe America, The Great Satan, off the face of the earth.

And what has to be supreme nonsense, after 67% of the voters in over 30 states added to their Constitutions the verification that marriage was only between one man and one woman,(see Amendments by states ) the Supreme Court decides though lacking judicial authority to do so, because it did not originate marriage, that a union between two persons of the same sex is marriage in spite of the clear fact that they have no ability to procreate or continue the human race.

Psalm 2

Why do the nations conspire[a]
    and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up
    and the rulers band together
    against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
“Let us break their chains
    and throw off their shackles.”

The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
    the Lord scoffs at them.

We can join God in His humor but we should be joining Him in changing a culture that thinks because someone said something, that makes it true.  Or that taking down a flag has any effect on the major issues of our time.  The Supreme Court changed marriage not one whit; they only brought themselves into condemnation.  What they did can be undone by the Church ready to leave the womb of mother-church and join the fight for the sanity of our nation and its people.  Every time the Church has done this, she has won. It is long overdue.

Why does Islam (the Muslims) think they are entitled to the land of Israel?

Partial world map showing Muslim nations
Israel vs. Islam

Quick answer: They think it belongs to them as their inheritance through Ishmael.

Long answer: It belongs to the real heir, Isaac.  The Bible records important dreams, including God’s promises. Abram, later named Abraham by God, got into a royal mess because he took a promise in a dream and tried to make it come true on his own. God promised Abram, then childless, that he would be the father of thousands.  The temporary and consequently disastrous solution was to have a child through his house maid.  That first son was Ishmael known today as those nations constituting the political religion of Islam.  A few years later the 2nd and promised son Isaac, is born – the real heir.

In virtually every society except the USA blessings and rewards go to the eldest son, not the younger.  You see the problem.  Modern day Islam thinks it is entitled to the entire inheritance from Abraham and willing to strap bombs on their children to force the issue.  Islam is avenging itself because of something that happened 3,500 years ago, and the likelihood these people will change their minds is Zero.

The land of Canaan (now Israel, formerly Palestine) goes to Isaac and his descendants, hence the battle over a tiny piece of land no bigger than New Jersey.  And Europe who tried to pretend for decades that it was so magnanimous and egalitarian is now on High Alert. Iran, even though it is originally Persian, is also controlled by Islamic leaders and part of the enemies of Israel and the West.

Why Moving Israel’s Capital is Important

Ordinary citizens do not pay much attention to the United Nations so few people would think a vote there about the moving of the United States Embassy to Jerusalem is of much concern.  In the first place, location of a nation’s embassy is no one’s business at all but that of the USA.  Has anyone suggested that England move from London to Liverpool, or France from Paris to the Riviera, or Germany from Berlin to Hamburg? And if that came up to a vote those nations would be furious and rightly so.

As a practical matter moving an embassy is a nightmare – finding new property, moving all the personnel and their housing which is never easy to find.  The building much be secure. Personnel must move their children’s educational options. Then there is the very act of moving all that paperwork and technology.

128 nations voted against the move.  I can understand why. Embassies want to be near the USA’s embassy and now all these other nations will feel obligated to move their embassies to Jerusalem.  It is expensive and time consuming.  Many very small nations may not be able to afford the move.

But saying all that reminds us that when God does something it is for a spiritual reason. We are approaching the end of time. One of the major changes in religious life will be the moving together of Jews and Christians.  After all, they have the same Messiah and He is returning – to Jerusalem.

There is the coming possibility that there will also be a political joining of Jews and Christians.  Fully one billion new believers are being added to the heavenly rolls. Then there are the American black Christians.  This is an old and powerful group. They have been ignored in the past decade and can come forth now to join in an international religious prayer company.  Most black leaders in the USA have supported anti-Christian policies, such as abortion and same sex marriage.  Many black Christian leaders have not been heard from, or their voices have been stilled.

The third result of this vote is that God pays attention to nations as well as individuals.  In the End Times nations will be judged as either Sheep nations – those which support God in principle and practice and Goat nations which resist Israel and the moral law.

Genesis 12:3 says that God will curse those nations which curse Israel.

I will bless those who bless you, but I will curse anyone who curses you; and by you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

Here is a list of the nations which openly voted against Israel.

I will bless those who bless you, but I will curse anyone who curses you; and by you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

Here is a list of the nations which openly voted against Israel. If your nation is listed below it is under a curse. You can pray that your national leaders have their eyes opened to what is happening.

The Goat Nations come under judgment; the Sheep nations are working for and with God. This is quite outside the issue of any individual being saved.  God wants to save nations too. He asks of them adherence to the moral law and to His personal Nation, Israel, and protecting Israel is a no-brainer.

God’s Opinion of National Identity and the Brexit Vote

No doubt you assumed God had no opinion about things like this, but once again, if we look into the Bible carefully, we find a slew of dicta regarding national behavior and identity, and not just in the Old Testament.

God does not want world government.
God does not want world government.

First of these is the clear national individuality of nations.  Globalization and world government were a major goal in the early years of the planet which resulted in mass confusion.  This happened at the Tower of Babel where everyone at that time spoke the same language and joined to contest God for sovereignty of the world.

Genesis 11 The Message (MSG) “God Turned Their Language into ‘Babble’”

11 1-2 At one time, the whole Earth spoke the same language. It so happened that as they moved out of the east, they came upon a plain in the land of Shinar and settled down. They said to one another, “Come, let’s make bricks and fire them well.” They used brick for stone and tar for mortar.

Then they said, “Come, let’s build ourselves a city and a tower that reaches Heaven. Let’s make ourselves famous so we won’t be scattered here and there across the Earth.” God came down to look over the city and the tower those people had built.

6-9 God took one look and said, “One people, one language; why, this is only a first step. No telling what they’ll come up with next—they’ll stop at nothing! Come, we’ll go down and garble their speech so they won’t understand each other.” Then God scattered them from there all over the world. And they had to quit building the city. That’s how it came to be called Babel, because there God turned their language into “babble.” From there God scattered them all over the world.

Well, that was just the first of the disasters.  God scrambled the languages and the people scattered all speaking something “foreign” and confusion lasted until today. That should remind us that President Obama’s and the Democratic Party’s emphasis on world government will no doubt fall into ruin.  But it is pretty hard to tell anyone at the high levels of politics that they are headed the wrong way.

Acts 17:26 TLV From one He made every nation of men to live on the face of the earth, having set appointed times and the boundaries of their territory. (This is not a Godly endorsement of predatory imperialism.)

Britain has chosen to renew its independence from the European Union, a much better functioning Babylon, but still rife with ills, and hopefully Britain will regain some of the moral high ground it has lost.

So, God has a mission for every nation, and a territorial boundary for them too.  Nations have a Godly identity.  So far I’ve seen almost nothing written on this topic. Tiny Estonia is an interesting case.  Under the boot of the Communist Soviet Union (union maybe but not unity, lacking personal or political freedom) the people started singing.  Yes, singing.  Slowly but surely groups became larger and larger singing the old, popular songs of the nation.  When European communism collapsed in the 1980’s Estonia was unified and regained its ground without a shot.

Remember when Paul and Silas were in jail and they started singing?  An earthquake caused the bars of the jail to collapse and they were freed.  So this singing oneself to freedom is not some new thing for Estonia. (Acts 16)

Clearly, the USA has a specific call which she has met.  Preachers often fume over why God has not blasted this nation off the map, but then we look at the stats.  There are many internet sites showing American charitable giving, which should not be confused with national foreign aid some of which does not go to anything other than political figures or causes.  But overall Americans are the most generous people on earth, and continue to be a military aid to some nations in trouble, depending on the President in charge.  Nor do Americans take land or slaves after they have buried their dead soldiers in foreign soil. One of the most astonishing and unique events in world history is the Marshall Plan to put Germany back on its feet after World War 2.

God blasted many nations not only off the earth but off history entirely for abortion, which continues to be an international scourge. In Canada and the USA, abortion rates are 18 per 1,000 births; 26 per 1,000 for  Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Iran, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan; 28 per 1,000 Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Cyprus, Georgia, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syrian Arab Republic, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Yemen; Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Cote d’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Saint Helena, Senegal, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Cote d’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Saint Helena, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo, China, Hong Kong, Macao, Korea, Japan, Mongolia; 29 per 1,000 Belize, Costa Rico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama; 32 per 1,000 Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Falkland Islands, French Guiana, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay, Venezuela; 36 per 1,000 Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Sao Tome and Principe,Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste, Vietnam,Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Bonaire, Saint Eustatius, Saba, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Cuba, Curacao, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Jamaica, Martinique, Montserrat, Puerto Rico, Saint-Barth, Burundi, Comoros, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mayotte, Mozambique; 43 per 1,000 Belarus, Bulgaria, Czech Republic , Hungary, Poland, Republic of Moldova, Romania, Russian Federation, Slovakia, Ukraine.

Biblical nations which served the god of child sacrifice Molech that are no more are the Hittites, Canaanites, Jebusites, and the list goes on.  It is a warning to modern nations; you have no guarantee of permanence.

When I started, I’d not intended to focus on abortion but some interesting things have emerged.  First, babies go to heaven. (Yes, it is a big place.)  From these statistics, the ethnic background of the residents of heaven will largely be non-anglos.  That will match the international statistics as well.

Second, we notice that formerly communist and communist block countries have larger abortion rates.  This tells us that bad government has a definite impact on abortion rates, no doubt mirroring the poor income levels.  Millennials so intent on bringing socialism to the USA should pay attention here.  Socialism is communism without a gun to your head; the dictatorship comes later after they take your cash.

Third, abortion rates are a general barometer of poverty rates. People really do want to have children.  We know that America is in a 8 year slump despite political protestations to the contrary because birth rates have gone down!  Marriage rates and employment rates are way down too.  God likes peace because with it we gain prosperity and a future.  But there is no peace for the wicked. (Isaiah 48:2)

Finally there such a thing as goat nations. Matthew 25:31.

31 “But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33 and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left.

34 “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.35 For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38 And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39 When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’

Matthew 25:41 “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 43 I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ 44 Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not [e]take care of You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

Christians who avoid voting need to take this seriously.  Our nation, all other nations, will be judged by the mercy shown to others.  We need to see some sermons on this!
