The debate in the Church is how Christians ought to relate to the political forces.  Since persuading people, and in particular government officials, to your position is highly advantageous in a nation where the government has pushed its head into every corner, silence will not reign.  So the issue is whether Christians will contribute their voices to the public discourse.  When our private lives dominate our attention we tend to forget the historically high cost of silence.  Over and over history teaches us that all evil requires is acquiesence.  This is also true in the relationship among nations.  If the benevolent nations stand idly by, thug nations will devour their weaker neighbors.

"Ego avoidance" is that many good people fail to speak up because they do not want to be labeled arrogant.  But this tendency is well know, and used as a rote club to shame good people into quitting the field.

"Hide and be humble" is selfishness.  After all, who am I to speak out?  But that is not the question.  The question is who will speak; who will rule?  When force comes for you or your family you will react.  But if no one does so until their own lives are at stake, divide and conquer will win the day.

"Growling brute" is not only the despots of history, but also the great despot, Satan

"Depraved recruits" is the jackal who picks the carcass of the helpless.

"Screams" is the torturer's lust for power over another.

"Iron boots" of the conqueror will march anywhere they are not forced to avoid.  As a famous despot asked when the power of Rome was mentioned, "How many divisions does the Pope have?"  And the greatest mass murderer to date said, "Power flows from the end of a gun."  Against such foes what is persuasion worth?
