Is America the Last, Best Hope of the World?

The idea that America is the last, best hope of the world is the spirit that animates a great deal of political activity in our country. The “last, best hope” is one of the most enduring rallying cries preached to garner support and enthusiasm for major government initiatives throughout American history.

Conservatism, liberalism, or non-aggression?

There is a distant friend of mine who is a conservative, political activist who regularly insults and belittles ideological opponents on Facebook. A few weeks ago in one of his many cyber-arguments he quipped, “I am a social conservative and a Republican because of my faith in Christ.” A few days later, my wife and I were entering one of our favorite restaurants. Out front was an older, economy car with both 2008 and 2012 Obama/Biden bumper stickers and another sticker declaring, “I am a Democrat because of my faith.” Beside the statement was a cross.
