It’s back to England and the crisis they were facing for lack of disciplined spending. The writer most hated by English Socialists, Rudyard Kipling said 30 years earlier:

In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: If you don’t work you die

All this sounds remarkably like Paul’s letter to the Thessalonian – II Thes. 3:10-18. If you don’t work, you don’t eat. Such slothfulness is to be shunned. Free money always has the unfortunate effect of making people go overboard. The above quote, of course, came from John T. Flynn’s 1949 book The Road Ahead. . As I read through this book, I see plainly what was happening in England is happening today in America. Flynn was saying in 1949, “Unless we change direction, we were going to end up like England.”

We’ve seen the rioting on our TV news in Europe and a January 8, 2011 AP said British was on alert for a terror attack. Airlines, airports warned they may be an al-Qaida target. January 5, 2011 AP article said: Britons were going to get slammed with a sales tax increase that is increasing the price of everything from beer to clothing – a downbeat start to a year that many economists warn could feel rougher than the recent recession. Prime Minister David Cameron’s government said the rise in so-called value added tax (VAT) is “tough but necessary” to bring down Britains massive deficit, but the opposition argues it puts the economic recovery at risk just as the country is struggling to get back on its feet. The government lifted VAT from 17.5 percent to 20 percent in a bid to raise an extra $20.25 billion for the country’s coffers this year and unemployment is forecast to soar, house prices to fall and inflation to rise.
