Whose Freedom?

At the heart of the modern state is its desire for freedom. But the freedom they pursue is far from the perfect freedom offered in the Holy Word, it is the freedom of enslavement. When the state offers freedom they mean bondage; when they say they give you freedom from debt they will impose a subtle financial chain that will strangle your very soul. Rushdoony said that “the only freedom desired by the modern state is its own.” They want freedom to spend your money the way they so please. If it entails rebuilding a nation that we are destroying, protecting borders not our own, or supporting a humanistic educational system, whatever it may be they want that freedom. Our current allegiance to freedom means less for us and more to the state. What’s wrong with this picture?
