Ever since reading Believing History, I’ve been looking at the Book of Mormon and relating what it says to what it is closest to. Which is why it becomes pretty obvious that Nephi is closest to the socialists.
You can imagine what a shock that was to me when I was a libertarian marxist, it still affects me as a Republican.
2 Nephi 28:13 “they rob the poor because of their fine sanctuaries; they rob the poor because of their fine clothing;”
What rhetoric is that closest to?
Modern socialism, definitely.
What other surprising observations have you had while reading the Book of Mormon?
