The real foundation of politics

"The rights of the individual are not the touchstone of morality. God's law is the foundation of righteousness, and not a set of abstractions bequeathed to us by the Enlightenment. Nevertheless, God's law does protect the individual, explicitly, repeatedly, and clearly. The basics of this law can be communicated easily in the nursery, as children are taught to share, to respect the decisions of others, and so on, and these basics are the easiest part of the law for anyone to see. Even nonbelievers can see what C.S. Lewis called the Tao."

Douglas Wilson
