Sermon

FEBRUARY 01, 1958 by MALLORY CROSS JOHNSON

Mrs. Johnson and her husband, formerly of the Foundation staff, continue their study of freedom from Malaga, Spain.

What is war but death and taxes?
How will killing make men free?
Good will never come from evil;
As the seed, so grows the tree.

Taxes sap the life away from
Every source of future wealth,
Thrift and honesty discourage —
How can sickness bring us health?

Nor can bombing draw together
Men in friendship in the way
Voluntary operations
Draw men closer every day.

If you burn to fight for freedom
Know the source wherein it lies:
By respecting every person
Each will help the other rise.

Plus, Iain Murray and Wendy McElroy look at how the Feds are recruiting more and more Americans to do their policework for them.
