One Ring to Rule Them All

•, By Bionic Mosquito

I have written here about how Christianity can play its part in moving toward a society better grounded in liberty.  To summarize: civil law should be aimed against violations of person and property – basically violations of the non-aggression principle (recognizing that's application of this principle gets a bit tough at the edges); it is the role of other institutions – and, I argue, Christianity in the form of churches – to properly teach moral instruction.

Here, I will examine what I consider as the wrong means for Christians to achieve these ends – and a means by which much of the destruction of liberty that we have seen since the turn of the last century gained its force.  Christians offered Sauron the ring and then thought they could then control him.
