Read_565 – Isaiah’s Job [Albert Jay Nock]

“The line of differentiation between the masses and the Remnant is set invariably by quality, not by circumstance. The Remnant are those who by force of intellect are able to apprehend these principles, and by force of character are able, at least measurably, to cleave to them. The masses are those who are unable to do either.” – Albert Jay Nock

Today we read an incredible piece posted in the Atlantic Monthly nearly a century ago, in 1936. Libertarian author Albert Jay Nock explains the nature of the masses, and of the Remnant. Why Isaiah the profit knew his message would not be received by the masses, why they did not have the force of character to live by it, & why it wouldn’t stop the ultimate collapse of society, but despite this, his message would serve the Remnant, and they would be those who built the world back from the rubble.
