And – despite the provable fact that we all do better long term for these things being conserved and nurtured… there is always some dim-witted idiot who thinks their personal immediate short-term advantage is best served by abusing these. They think that because it serves their interest NOW, that it’ll never come around to them, and bite them the ass.

Seriously, Judeo-Christian morality is so objectively superior based just on the results that most other cultures will do almost anything to get those advantages….except for follow the morality.  Because there are serious short term disadvantages to not being able to, say, beat people up and take their stuff.

  1. Christian yes. Absolutely. Judaic… I don’t know. Currently almost all the talking heads seem to claim that the value system requires supporting abortion, feminism, and condemning nationalism. I’ve read different accounts of modern Talmudic Judaism, and am not sure what to believe. So that would be a big NOPE. But! And! the media are bloodly liars, so who can say?

    Not to mention that the only place (historically) that has ever had fair shot is Israel. And I don’t know enough about that country judge: i.e. to either praise or condemn. I’ve read O Jerusalem (about the founding – really good) and Tenenbaum’s Catch the Jew. Mixed results viz: values. All anyone can say for sure is that compared to every country around it, it’s an oasis of cultural competence.

    So yes, we’ve had enough actually Christian countries vs. non-Christian ones to say, on balance, that Christianity is a force for good in the neighborhood, and, for example, Communism and Islam are NOT.

    I think all the rest are more of a “citation needed” kind of claim.

    1. Yes, the talking heads are lying– and also yes, Jewish theology is not Christian. It’s just close enough to get some flack from the folks who hate Christianity, too.

      Still revolutionary, and a required step, though– you just can’t form a culture where the assumption that all humans are really as much a person as yourself with standard tribal thought.

      The sheer novelty of the idea that the law applies to everyone, equally– there are even multiple Old Testament warnings AGAINST twisting the law to favor, say, widows and orphans, as well as the more standard don’t-twist-the-law-to-favor-the-powerful stuff– is mind boggling, *IF* you can get to the point where you can recognize that it really isn’t universal. NOt just, “yeah, some folks abuse it,” but how historically abnormal it is for the abuse not to be use-as-intended.

      I don’t know how to explain it very well, because the very idea is just strange to me– how can folks not understand that any standard they set that makes it OK to do a bad thing, is going to be used against them or those they love? How can folks *not* see that making it OK to take stuff from this guy here, who is currently successful, means that folks won’t work hard to be successful and that if you get lucky, you’ll be ruined, too?
