Pagan Capitalism is the natural father of all revolutionary and social trends: Socialism, Communism, Bolshevism – all those aspirations which, acting under the law of reaction, stood up to defend the violated human rights.
But can a bad tree bear good fruit? Sin begets sin. The sin of Capitalism was opposed by the sin of Socialism, Communism and Bolshevism. Marxist heresies argued that Capitalist technology breeds a Collectivist system. “For the desire of money is the root of all evils; which some coveting have erred from the faith, and have entangled themselves in many sorrows.” (1 Tim. 6:10). You say it looks radical? Every sin is radical, be it the individualistic sin of Capitalism or the Collectivist sin of Bolshevism. All sins belong to one family, so both the golden and the red international flow from one source – greed.
