THE TREND OF DEMOCRACY

From the May 1919 issue of The Christian Science Journal


In these days of unusual revolutions of thought, not a few, catching glimpses of the government of God as revealed in Christian Science, may speculate as to how this supreme rule of divine Principle is to affect the future of human government. Some, glancing backward over history with slight knowledge of the subject, may hope that within what has been called theocracy will be found the final order whereby harmony is to be maintained on earth; but the present needs of humanity for world-wide law and order do not encourage thinkers to build much on visions, the perversions of which would only tend to upset the best ways and means of government now being developed through democracy.
