Individuality

by


America is the highest expression of individuality. All this subtle attempt appearing as relief, pensioning — having something done for you, is the attempt to turn man from looking unreservedly to God. It is the stuff the mediumship of priestcraft is made of, only in this case it is the mediumship of political priestcraft.

Communism, Naziism, Fascism, Kemalism, etc., together with the New Deal, are all for the one purpose of eventually destroying individualism.

In this country, the attack upon individuality comes in a more subtle form, cloaking itself under the guise of benevolence. Had it not been for the Supreme Court of the United States, might we not be regimented today, marching under bureaucratic commands from Washington? Be on your guard if something intrudes itself between you and God. Present methods of relief, old age pensions, etc., are all forms of this effort to supplant God, and in the end would have all looking to Washington instead of to Mind. To person instead of to Principle.

Jesus gave the true illustration of God’s way. He was the way, the truth and the life. Did he not have everything? He had the supper prepared for his disciples, he had the money for the taxes from the fish’s mouth, and he fed the multitude by means of Mind, not by governmental largess. “Give to Mind the glory, honor, dominion, and power everlastingly due its holy name.” (S&H) If we did that, would we not have the answer?
