Larry Esmond’s letter (“The greater danger,” MWR, Aug. 24) portrays the actual greater danger — a lack of critical thinking. Statistics usually show that abortions are higher under such programs as proposed by President Trump. The anti-science and anti-education stance would send us back to the dark ages. Doing away with socialism would be doing away with public education, Medicare and Medicaid, Social Security, the police, public roads, etc. Marxism might be closer to the way of Jesus than capitalism. Joe Biden is not for defunding the police. Nationalism is not the way of Jesus. Who really disrespects our Christian heritage by their practices? As Christians, we are to seek the welfare of the community where we find ourselves.
