Worldly powers overcome
Here's the Register's Easter editorial. I tend to be my most anarchistic when I'm the most Christian. The resurrection is an affront to every empire and government that ever existed, not just Rome and ancient Israel. The powers of this world are the enemy of innocence and goodness wherever they appear, and seek to take the rightful place of God. Few who call themselves Christian understand this fully, though most have some understanding. Too many Christians, however, seek to use the State to further what they think is good for others, which to me is an utter subversion of what Jesus tried to do.
