Modern politics

Modern politics is not that modern

King Ahab wanted his neighbor Naboth’s vineyard (1 Kings 21)
he couldn’t simply take it, even though he was the king –
even though he was the government –

that would have been a violation of the 8th Commandment,

DO NOT STEAL.

So he found a couple of men to bear false witness against Naboth,

THEY accused him of blasphemy (religious justification)

then had him stoned to death,

The King Ahab took his vineyard.

Today land siege & money reappropriating is done

via a program of land reform, or eminent domain, or zone redistricting

Elijah would have nodded to himself saying, what about

DO NOT STEAL

But politicians answer

Forget about the 10 Commandments they get in the way

of socialism & decadent debauchery
