“Now we have only 3 classes . . . within the machine.” Elitist angst and snobbery! Abraham Lincoln said something like this - God sure loves ordinary people for he made a whole lot of them”. I know so many neighbors, friends, ancestors, relatives, people I meet along the way who know the Living God in their own way and aim to love their neighbor, do right, be kind, serve, help and do so , not always perfectly of course but they are salt and light in their personal spheres of presence and influence. And yes they may not have entirely correct Lawrencian ideas about aspects of reality, but to say they have no direct perception of God and are mindless - rubbish!
