Christianity Will Be the Victor in the Most Revolutionary Age

From Tom Dahlberg at Sons of Liberty Media:

We are now living in the most revolutionary age in the history of mankind. It is even more revolutionary than the Enlightenment.

The revolutions induced by the Enlightenment were revolutions to dethrone the church and the divine right of kings and enthrone the great god reason, in its liberal and then Marxist forms. The revolutions that are coming in the postmodern age will dethrone the great god reason in order to finally enthrone various forms of democracy. But only Christian democracy will work.

Christian democracy is simply the cultural dominance of the Christian tradition resulting from the complete separation of the state from all of the means of cultural production – especially education. It is the private ownership and control of all of the means of cultural production. The Christian tradition will dominate without tyranny. It will do so because people are made in the image of God and therefore Christianity, liberated from state oppression, will defeat all rival traditions without the kind of coercion which the liberal state is now famous for. The state has been the enemy of Christianity since the French Revolution. Now it is time for Christians to understand that they are, in fact, the enemy of the Enlightenment state; that they are the revolutionaries.

The Enlightenment revolutions, based on myths about reason, proved that it is the Enlightenment which has been theocratic, crowning reason as a pagan god. (Just consider the pagan results.) This theocracy of Reason has the same prima facie difficulty that all theocracies have – men claiming that they speak for God in his physical absence. And so one of the modern myths about reason has been that science is the infallible incarnation of god, the physical presence on earth of the great god of the Enlightenment – universal reason. The other myth is that science can and does literally describe Reality. The latter myth has ironically been destroyed by the cornerstone of western science – the notion that Reality is what stands hidden behind our experience, causing it (rather than being our experience), in which case no amount of experience can make any proposition about that Reality true.

Every day now as we go about our moral, cultural, and political business, we are swimming in a sea of radical relativism. The Enlightenment is already overthrown. No universal moral reason is recognized. Kant and the Utilitarians failed in their modern attempt to found morality in some universal rational method. And so we have a society which is rocked by disorder and precipitate change; in which multiculturalism and any conception of reason, value and justice, no matter how impractical, is considered a legitimate option because every competitor is rooted in nothing but relative emotion.
