When the pot is boiling over, people run for a bigger more liberal or a smaller more conservative lid to cover it, made and used by their heroes, as in this recent case of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The most important issue behind most issues in the 2016 presidential and other elections was economic success. The obvious answer to a boiling pot is to take it off the heat, but that is not the desire of this “Me Generation.” In the collapse of all civilizations, the issue that drives perversion to destruction is for individual prosperity of male and female, race or class. Jesus said the worship of mammon and creation instead of God our Father and Creator causes blindness to all issues (Matthew 6:19-24). The worship of the world’s wealth instead of the treasure of heaven is to reject the pearl of great price or the treasure found in the world’s field for what is only of decaying value. To worship the world’s wealth is to rush through the very wide gate to destruction rather than enter the narrow gate open to God’s eternal city.

Carl Wilson is such a man. With painstaking patience he has dusted off a path through history to trace whence we have come. He has sketched a grid to classify the enigmas of modern life.” Continue reading
