El omniestado

En la Unión Soviética y la Alemania nazi el omniestado ha lucido en todo su esplendor criminal. En Europa Occidental y los USA, sin embargo, la cosa estatal ha estado domeñada por la moral cristiana. Hasta el momento...

Since the conversion of Rome, most Western rulers have been more or less inhibited by Christian morality (though, often enough, not so's you'd notice), and even warfare became somewhat civilized for centuries; and this has bred the assumption that the state isn't necessarily an evil at all. But as that morality loses its cultural grip, as it is rapidly doing, this confusion will dissipate. More and more we can expect the state to show its nature nakedly.
