TCW Minute: Independence Day and Socialism (Week of July 2, 2018)

Why the demand for socialism?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

Independence Day is this week, commemorating the US colonies signing the Declaration of Independence from the British Empire.  Our Founders believed in limited government and individual freedoms.

Today there is a growing demand for the opposite—socialism.  The dictionary defines socialism as, “In Marxist theory, a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism.”  Almost half of Millennials say they prefer socialism to capitalism.

The decline of the biblical worldview, even amongst Christians, explains the desire for socialism, with its faith in government and ungodly social policies.
