C.S. Lewis: Meditation on The Third Commandant

Image result for C.S. Lewis
Lewis, looked vegly like actor
Broderick Crawford (Highway
Patrol 1956-1960).

Lewis Explains why there can;t be a Christian Political party.

The Christian Party must either confine itself to stating what ends are desirable and what means are lawful or else it must go further and select from among the lawful means those which it deems possible and efficacious and give to these its practical support. If it chooses the first alternative it will not be a political party. Nearly all parties agree in professing ends which we admit to be desirable --- security, a living wage, and the best adjustment between the claims of order and freedom. What distinguishes one party from another is the championship of means. We do not dispute whether the citizens are to be made happy, but whether an egalitarian or a hierarchical State, whether capitalism or socialism, whether despotism or democracy is most likely to make them so.
