Homeschool Dominionist Economics and Law
The workbook sent me emphasizes an economy without any government restraint. “Stagnant” economies come from government control while prosperity flows to those without any. Minimum wage is defined as valueless in nature and a hindrance to economic growth. One can easily tell this is not the sort of literature handed out at Occupy Wall Street gatherings.
Inflation is simply caused by governments consuming more than they produce. This drags us into poverty according to the workbook. What exactly government “produces” was peculiar to me. Economies suffer when governments exceed their God-ordained bounds. I read between the lines by authors noted and found out where these lines exist. The workbook is based on Christian Reconstruction authors. The basic ideology behind government to these folks is that the only local authorized government is the county sheriff. Public education and any government assistance is forbidden in these circles. According to the manual, national debt is forbidden by The Constitution. The church has even become a part of this treason by encouraging such.
Welfare, or government assistance, is destructive to those who receive it. The Biblical mandate is not being upheld in America according to one summary. God established an executive and judicial system but not a legislature. (Newt Gingrich would like this workbook.) R. J. Rushdoony, the father of Christian Reconstruction is listed as one of the sources. One of the true or false questions was about non-Christian participation in Christian Dominion. The proper answer was “yes,” even the unconverted could get involved in the takeover.
