Lose a War – To a Superior Civilization

I just searched K. for a favorite quote I heard in 1970 and can’t find it: another casualty of the US censorng my domains. I’ll repeat the story real quick here. Upon founding FLEX I spent a lot of time in churches trying to forge alliances with social ameliorists. This and that protestant group, and more Catholic groups than I’d ever heard of. I repeated something that had appalled me to one of the Protestants: NYC cops, on public pay, were raising funds for Catholic churches. No one seemed offended. I was outraged. The pastor said, “There’s only one thing to be done: lose a war to a superior civiliazation!

Put it differently: a god, a superior force, correct coersion, is only only hope. Humans in themselves are not capable of proper behavior.

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
