Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils Is Evil

May 9, 2008

In George Orwell’s 1984, a novel about a brainwashed populace controlled by a totalitarian government, there is a term called “blackwhite.” It was the ability to accept whatever “truth” the ruling party put out. Orwell described it as, “loyal willingness to say black is white when party discipline demands this. It also means the ability to believe that black is white, and more, to know black is white, and forget that one has ever believed the contrary.” Today, we are being asked to believe that evil is good.


Christians, Voting, and Politics

We recently had an election here in the United States. I didn’t vote. Why? Besides the fact, as I have stated before, that even the best choice is still merely the lesser or two or three evils—and the lesser among evils is still evil (see “Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils Is Evil“)—another reason I didn’t vote is that my real citizenship is not in the United States of America.
