The words of one woman explain a great deal about what is happening in our world today, including the recent Missouri Highway Patrol report on militia activity that caused such a stir among conservatives and libertarians that it had to be withdrawn.
But before we identify the woman, let me remind you about Auguste Comte, the crazy Frenchman, who in 1851 published the first volume of his System of Positive Polity. In it he boasted:
“The object of our philosophy is to direct the spiritual reorganization of the civilized world. . . we may begin at once to construct that system of morality under which the final regeneration of Humanity will proceed.” P, 35, 36
