The most important book regarding the features, nature, and development of morality in Western culture is this rauschenbusch routing Bush book, Christianity and the social crisis. He is unable to see entirely past the church but almost. It is extraordinarily insightful and helpful. It is so clear that it would unleash the Soul and Spirit and energies of a young Martin Luther King jr. As it did.

The most important book regarding the features, nature, and development of morality in Western culture is this rauschenbusch book, Christianity and the social crisis. He is unable to see entirely past the church but almost. It is extraordinarily insightful and helpful. It is so clear that it would unleash the Soul and Spirit and energies of a young Martin Luther King jr. As it did.

Breathtaking insights that I have seen nowhere else and are very useful and empowering for me.
The clarity that he provides at how laws are worse than useless and unsustainable unless they reflect a social morality that has already been established. He seems to think that that can only be established by a Christian Church which is so sad and patently ridiculous. But the process is absolutely correct and there is no greater failing on the part of the legal left than their wielding of laws to do what only the long-term work of sewing a new Morality In The Souls of men, revealing the Morality In The Souls of men, liberating it from the tyranny of head and flesh, can do.

Among the many gifts of reading this is this particular treasure for me. That the most joyful task is to unleash within ourselves and thereby plant in others the seeds of Joyful living for others, LSGIA being, with the certainty that it may take years or centuries to grow, if it grows at all. That's how it works. Let's get on with it.

And yes, yes, yes it is centuries and Aeons too late to save the human species or the  United States but it is not too late to save the quality of life of the poor souls that survived Downstream and to unleash the quality of life, to unlock it, among one or several of our fellow creatures today.
