Stress of 2016 Elections (CS Lewis and Mark Twain)


 

I hope the following two quotes will give you some perspective on one of the most tumultuous Presidential elections ever conducted in our history. These quotes come from CS Lewis, one of the greatest Christian apologists of the 20th century, and Mark Twain.

CS Lewis makes his point through a satirical and fictional book called Screwtape Letters. In this book, Screwtape is a senor demon mentoring his promising young nephew called Wormwood. The victim of their discussion is an innocent human named Patient.

My dear wormwood, “Be sure that the Patient remains completely fixated on politics. Arguments, political gossip, and obsessing on the faults of people they have never met serves as an excellent distraction from advancing in personal virtue, character, and the things Patient can control. Make sure to keep Patient in a constant state of anguish, frustration, and general disdain towards the rest of the human race in order to avoid any kind of charity or inner peace from further developing. Ensure that Patient continues to believe that the problem is out there in the broken system rather than recognizing there is a problem within himself.”

Keep up the good work, Uncle Screwtape
