The Gardener

Capitalism will never defeat communism. Capitalism might prove to be a better politico-economic system of government, but it’s powerless in and of itself to deracinate communism’s destructive roots, which choke the life of all diversity, drive, competition, and nutrition in a garden that’s designed as a feast for the eyes and stomach.

Only with scarred hands that till the arid, hardened soil of communism’s internment can we all enjoy life in a gratuitous garden filled with colorful diversity and a healthy competition that inspires us to reach for the heavenly hands that created us and hold us.

Only a providential mixture of organic matter and minerals created ex nihilo–that feeds from the light–can decompose communism’s pseudo-acts of humanism.

Only the Gardener with thorn-pricked thumbs and dirt under his fingernails can uproot the weeds of totalitarianism in order to cultivate creative acts of true humanism in the soft, humble soil of sacrificial love.
