Areopagitica Applied

In the last part of the Areopagitica Milton reminds us that even when a country does not follow God, God raises up men to speak out and write about the corruption and evil of the nation. God will reform the nation. At the time that God reforms nations there will be those who seek to lead others astray, but it is then that God will raise up men to stand up. America’s rights are being surpressed. We are like the “noble and puissant” nation who are ruled by those who steal from the people and expect them to buy back their own goods. Our leaders are beginning to steal our rights away and punish us for exercising them. A country cannot remain virtuous with these types of leader. America does not need change, she needs a miracle and change in leadership.
