What Francis Schaeffer Knew in 1981

“When the men of our State Department, especially after World War II, went all over the world trying to implant our form-freedom balance in government downward on cultures whose philosophy and religion would never have produced it, it has, in almost every case, ended in some form of totalitarianism or authoritarianism.”

—Francis Schaeffer, A Christian Manifesto, p. 29

    One of his most cogent points from the book. There is a tremendous irony in the documentary “Why We Fight,” not unrelated to this thought…the documentary is a warning against the tyranny of the military-industrial complex, the irony is that the warning comes from statements made by Dwight Eisenhower.
