What can we learn from the protestors at Zuccotti Park, on Wall St.? We can learn where the left would take us if we follow their lead. We can learn that there is no comparison between this godless demonstration against authority—any authority— and the Tea Party Movement which is a protest against ungodly tyranny. The Zuccotti Park protestors are a classic example of the “mob mentality” Anne Coulter so prophetically describes in her book, “Demonic.”
We learn that Wall Street protesters demonstrate the spirit of the French Revolution, while the Tea Party movement demonstrates the spirit of the American Revolution. The former rooted in self-gratification with no respect for self or others, while the latter is rooted in Christian love seeking the greater good for all with respect for our institutions and our system of ordered liberty.
The only thing both movements have in common is that they are both expressions of “We , the people,” though representative of two ends of the political spectrum, the left and the right.
So does the Bible say anything about this? Glad you asked.
“As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so
a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
The heart of the wise inclines to the right,
but the heart of the fool to the left.
Even as fools walk along the road, they lack sense
and show everyone how stupid they are.”
--Ecclesiastes 10:1-3 NIV
