There seems to be a new struggle brewing in our nation these days, and we have yet to really identify it. I refer to it as the war on common sense. Politics, law, education, economics, and even science; there seems to be no area that’s not affected by the loss of common sense.
C.S. Lewis said, ‘If you fail to obey a higher law, a deeper law will rule you.” Indeed, he is right. If we fail to obey the higher law of common sense, the deeper law of political correctness will rule us. While it sounds more learned, it’s really just the law of the jungle in disguise; fashioned to rule hearts instead of territory.
Take Away: When we fail to live by common sense, we are ruled by another’s political truth.
