When Democracy Ceases To Be


A very good friend of mine posted this and I think it is extremely relevant today. My concern is not for myself over these developments. I have a home in Glory that has been promised me and shall never be taken away. My remaining time on this corrupt earth is a short time and then I will be with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. My concern is for my children, grand-children and great grand-children. If the Lord delays his coming, they will be in this ever increasingly corrupt world, subjected to un-imagined immorality, ethically devoid deviants. This breaks my heart for my loved ones.

 

The Library of Congress attributes the following to Professor Alexander Tytler, writing about democracy in the ancient Athenian pattern. It is amazingly relevant!

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the Public Treasury.
From that moment on the majority always votes for candidates promising the most benefits from the Public Treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy always followed by dictatorship.
The average of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence.
From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty.
From liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency.
From complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependence back into bondage.
