Identity and Class Warfare

Franklin D. Roosevelt warned Congress, January 3, 1940:

“Doctrines that set group against group, faith against faith, race against race, class against class, fanning the fires of hatred in men too despondent, too desperate to think for themselves, were used as rabble-rousing slogans on which dictators could ride to power. And once in power they could saddle their tyrannies on whole nations.”

This started in the U.S. 8 years ago. Is it too late for this generation? There has not been before in my lifetime so much division, angst, and outwardly expressed hate: demonstrations that lead to violence that leads to riots.

It’s pretty ugly in the United States. There is an abundance of finger pointing going on — much blame with very little personal accountability.

“By this will all know you follow Me: that you love one another.” Jesus Christ
