I believe this message still applies to us in America today!
And actually, applies to all the world -- no one wants to live under tyranny!!
God did NOT make us that way!! God (Jesus) is LOVE!!
The book 'Marx and Satan' by Richard Wurmbrand https://www.amazon.com/Marx-Satan-Richard-Wurmbrand Free as Ebook or PDF.
shows real well where Communism is really from! Communism, Nazism, Islam, and similar beliefs and false religions that COERCE people!!
'Deceived people, deceiving people' who, in being deceived themselves, bring on cruel tyranny! And for any dissenters to their LIES, very often the punishment is cruel torturous imprisonment or death!
Evan McMullin, Independent 2016 Presidential candidate, talks about this same subject of people forced into living under tyranny in his moving TED Talk - May 2016 (on YouTube) as well as in various interviews.
It is important to know, as Trevor Loudon tells us in this 2012 video, this is also what Evan McMullin learned through things he studied growing up, as a CIA undercover agent, and through other ways, especially from knowing God, who --- as the Bible says "Jesus, moved by Compassion..healed the sick, cast out demons!" Jesus, Christianity, God is NOT about coercion, and torture!
