My question is this: was this problem really caused by liberal government welfare programs foisted on people by a few officials? Or was there already an underlying spiritual cause, that had changed the hearts of many people so they were ready for this kind of solution? It seems that 1940 or the WWII era is often sited as a watershed date of change. I believe that this is when the universal church suffered a great blow because it had mixed an evolutionary world view with true Christian doctrine of creation, and finally the results of that mix became horribly clear when the truth about Hitler's racial purification program were made known. Hitler's ideas came straight from evolution, and the idea that people are merely advanced animals.
