The Three Front War

Humanity is engaged in a Three Front War, whether we know this or not, regardless of how little we fight or how much. The focus for most of humanity is the political battle. This is a crucial front and needs to be fought with diplomacy, conviction and perseverance, but also with logic, reason and the methods of science.

Diplomacy is needed because it is not enough to rely on the rantings of the radical fringe candidates and the bombast of politicians. Positivists need to base their message on science because only science can bridge the gap that divide us.

However, the economic and religious sectors cannot be ignored. The war for souls is not an easy fight yet it is not taken seriously enough. As Christians we are saved but our salvation is not the purpose of Christs gift. We are saved because he loves us, but we have to think of this love as general not as specific to us. The point of Jesus coming to earth and enduring the cross on Calvary was not a desire that one man might be saved. His love for us dies if it does not get transferred to others. The love of Jesus is dynamic and has to be shared to be maintained. This is the heart of the church.

The economic war is the most difficult to understand. Most people see capitalism as conservative. It has conservative elements, but capitalism is a liberal conception. Capitalism is not a scientific theory. It appeals to the fleshy desires of man and carries an emotional message.

Until we can appreciate capitalism and especially what is referred to as corporatism is part of the ideology of progressivism we will not fully understand the nature of the fight we are in.

The economic war is the most important and despite the lack of clarity it lays at the center of the conflict. Economics despite pie charts and graphs is not a scientific discipline. It lacks no clear measure by which we can determine results.

Liberals are advocates for freedom, but the state cannot give us freedom because the state has no freedom to give. Liberalism is an appeal to people’s emotions.

The liberal state makes promises based on an empathy model. In their thinking the state can pay for what people want. But the state has no money other than what it takes from others. If two people want to go to the movies and there is only money for one the government can only give the second person the ability to go to the movies by taking the first persons ticket and giving it to the second person. So, in a very real sense freedom as provided by governments is a zero-sum game.

Conservative Christians want people to retain what they have as much as possible. This is more closely associated with Scripture than liberalism, but we have to be cognizant of where the Positivist message of science-based solutions and conservatives part company, especially when dealing with the hard right of libertarianism.

The state can either take someone’s money and give it to someone else, or not. They cannot do both. The more they do for entitled groups the more liberal the state, the less they do this the more conservative. This does not make conservative party’s objective in the policies they promote. If we say a conservative party ought not to do tax and spend as the liberals do then we see that all governments are to varying degrees progressive, though some are more progressive and responsive to emotional clues than others. But can we have a true science-based party? The answer is, no, if we do not pursue the war on all three fronts.

People have a righteous claim to the resources on which they rely. No science can prove otherwise. Social Positivists wars against the emotionalism and unscientific methodologies of progressivism on all three fronts. We are the only organization that understands the true nature of the conflict and has a clear path to success based on science.
