This classic by Elder H Verlan Andersen tackles the topic of judging moral actions of government and society. From the introduction, “when government enforces a law, its actions are either morally right or morally wrong. Never are they without moral significance. They are good or evil depending upon whether the conduct prohibited or commanded is good or evil. This makes the study of government extremely challenging. There is no latitude for error. The existence of government is justified only because there exists a code of private morality which should be enforced. But if it misconstrues what that code is, to that same extent it violates it.”This is essential reading for all Latter-day Saints.
