Careful study of the Bible shows us God cares about how any society chooses rulers. For example, when Israel rejected God and said they wanted to be like every other nation ruled by a king, God protested strongly and warned them about the failures monarchies can cause, but in the end stepped aside to let them freely choose. While it was ultimately the undoing of their nation, God still was able to work around and through their bad government choices to score his victories, yet they still often suffered as a people when they didn’t have to.
Thousands of years later, humankind still is hellbent on making bad choices about who should be the rulers in their various nations. Venezuela, of course, is the latest prime example of what really happens to a nation that embraces socialism/communism. But it is only one of many examples of this type of government system that is growing in popularity worldwide. Even after Venezuela is facing a collapse of it’s own making (which started with the late Hugo Chavez and was continued by the current President Maduro who effected a coup with the help of leftists) Venezuela’s president is blaming the US for problems he and his corrupt backers started themselves once he took over.
Socialists tend to be good at the blame game. They use the envy, jealousy, and greed that their blame game is based on, to get enough followers to place them in power. Then once they gain power they will use entitlements to buy the loyalties of their backers only to discover later that the entitlements will collapse the whole system. And once that happens, those who backed the socialist ruler or system will be betrayed by the ruler and blamed, targeted, and somehow punished by that ruler even if he/she has to raise false accusations to get that accomplished. So now the collapse of Venezuela’s socialism/communism has bred violent lawlessness in the streets after the shortages of food and other resources have taken hold.
Venezuela wasn’t the first to go through this cycle. Most of the 20th century up to the present saw this scenario play out over and over again in Russia, East Germany, North Korea, Vietnam, Ethiopia, Cuba, and elsewhere. But did they learn anything? Apparently not, because now the corruption of the EU’s socialist-based system/mentality has hurt various people throughout Europe, including those who have suffered under the NHS and Europeans being evicted from their homes so there can be a redistribution of their resources to unlawful migrants, some of whom have been raping and killing Europeans who have propped up the socialist principles.
Lawlessness that props up socialism just breeds more lawlessness. Not wanting to be left out of it, the socialist-leaning mainstream media and academics in the US backed by globalist socialists like Soros have churned up the hatred toward capitalists, especially the successful one running for president. They must paint law-abiding capitalists and conservatives as racists and unfair as they hypocritically promote breaking the law and encourage more lawlessness. Ironically, they scoff at the Bible as their actions prove the Bible’s words to be true:
A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. Prov. 22:3
As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people. Prov. 28:15
When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase. Prov. 28:28
If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked. Prov. 29:12 (Why the Obama admin has been so corrupt and why a Sanders or Clinton admin would be also.)
When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall. Prov. 29:16 (Let this happen soon, Lord.)
