October is also the centenary of the Russian Revolution. Lenin (who tellingly seems to have coined the phrase ‘political correctness’) founded the first modern totalitarian state. Currently, the greatest military threat for a generation hangs over the Western world from just such a regime, North Korea, led by its dictator Kim Jong Un. Despite the ratcheting up of sanctions, this Communist state is relentlessly pursuing the capability to launch missiles with nuclear warheads able to reach America or its bases in the Pacific. In early September, Nikki Hayley, the US spokesperson at the United Nations, spoke of this totalitarian country as ‘begging for war’. (We need to be praying for governments – 1 Timothy 2.1,2.)
