Paul Craig Roberts: "Christmas : The Greatest Gift for All", PaulCraigRoberts.org, 23 December 2013.
In his Christmas column, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts celebrates the historic role of Christianity in the West in empowering the individual and protecting citizens from tyranny through the rule of law and the right to free speech. These achievements, he insists, "all flow from the teaching that God so values the individual’s soul that he sent his son to die so we might live. By so elevating the individual, Christianity gave him a voice." But, laments Roberts, much of this achievement is being undone as "political correctness" and "the war on terror" combine to destabilise the worldview foundations upon which our civilisation rests... and thus... "Tyranny has re-emerged."
