How Shall We Then Live?
Francis Schaeffer
Began: June, 2006 | Finished November: 2006

XIII. Chapter Thirteen: The Alternatives
A. The Pressures of having no absolutes on a people whose only values are personal peace
and prosperity are several:
1. Economic breakdown
Note Germany’s acceptance of Hitler was in large part due to their dissatisfaction with the Wiemar
Republic and the terrible inflation they experienced under that regime. People will give up liberty in
the fact of losing their prosperity.
2.The threat of war (especially between the west and communism)
3. The chaos of violence–especially random or political violence, and indiscriminate terrorism
People will give up their liberties when they are threatened by indiscriminate terrorism.
4. The radical redistribution of the world’s wealth
(1) A lowering of wealth among those people and nations that have come to take it for granted
(2) A redistribution of power in the world
“In a descending spiral of prosperity and world power, an manipulating authoritarian government
might be easily welcomed, in the hope that such a government would somehow soften the
unpleasant results caused by a lessening of prosperity and world power.” [page 247]
5. A growing shortage of food and other natural resources
B. No Peace w/o chaos apart from a Christian base
There was a false view that democracy could be planted anywhere from outside. Freedom w/o chaos
had “come forth from a Christian base” and “freedom w/o chaos could not be separated from its
roots.” [page 248]
1. People will not stand for chaos and will give up liberties to retain it
This opens the door for authoritarian governments. This is where we are headed now.
2. Munich Pact
British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain signed the Munich Pact with Hitler in 1938. This cost
Czechoslovakia and WWII with the allusion of “peace in our time.” Churchill afterward spoke to the
House of Commons:
“[The people] should know that we have sustained a defeat without a war . . . they should know that
we have passed an awful milestone in our history . . . and that the terrible words have for the time
being been pronounced against the Western democracies: ‘Thou art weighed in the balance and
found wanting.’ And do not suppose this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning.
This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year
unless, by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigor, we arise again and take our stand
for freedom as in the olden times.” [page 249-50]
C. A Special Note (pages 253ff.)
“But let us be realistic in another way, too. If we as Christians do not speak out as authoritarian
governments grow from within or come from outside, eventually we or our children will be the
enemy of society and the state. No truly authoritarian government can tolerate those who have a
real absolute by which to judge its arbitrary absolutes and who speak out and act upon that
absolute.” [Francis Schaeffer, How Shall We Then Live?, page 254]

Canadian artist Dorothea Rockburne grounds her practice in mathematical theories that she first encountered while studying with Max Dehn at the legendary Black Mountain College. This exhibition includes a selection of key works since the 1970s, featuring one of Rockburne’s most recent drawings, The Mathematical Edges of Maine, a response to her travel to the state in the summer of 2014.

Website dorothearockburne.com

Dorothea Rockburne (born c.1932 in Montreal, Canada) is an abstract painter drawing inspiration primarily from her deep interest in mathematics and astronomy. Rockburne’s attraction to Mannerism has also influenced her work.[1] In 1950 she moved to the United States to attend Black Mountain College,[2] where she studied with mathematician Max Dehn, a lifelong influence on her work. In addition to Dehn, she studied with Franz Kline, Philip Guston, John Cage, and Merce Cunningham. She also met fellow student Robert Rauschenberg.

In 1955, Rockburne moved to New York City where she met many of the leading artists and poets of the time. Rockburne is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, National Academy of Design, and The Century Association.
