Rod Serling offered this introduction to the episode:“You walk into this room at your own risk because it leads to the future. Not a future that will be, but one that might be. This is not a new world — it is simply an extension of what began in the old one. It has patterned itself after every dictator who has ever planted the ripping imprint of a boot on the pages of history, since the beginning of time. It has refinements, technological advances, and a more sophisticated approach to the destruction of human freedom. But like every one of the super-states that preceded it, it has one iron rule: logic is an enemy and truth is a menace.”
Obsolete Man/Obsolete Jobs
In this video, the “state” proclaims that Rodney Wordsworth is “obsolete.” Why? Because he is a librarian and “there are no more books.” They support their claim saying that ministers are obsolete because “the state has proven that there is no God” — and “reading the Bible is a crime punishable by death.”
When those in the 1960s watched this episode, it’s likely they were appalled at the suggestion of a world with such an immoral, unethical, and unbiblical perception of the worth of man; and the idea of a government that would proclaim “there is no God.” In our day, most would still be appalled by such things. So we should view this video as a warming of the dangers of the state if its power is corrupted and its authority is without limits. This is what could happen if man denies God, rejects His truths, and then embraces the lies of the world. All humans have worth (including the pre-born) because man was created in the image of God. If man’s worth is ever determined based on the value of his contribution to society, we are all in danger.
Take time and watch this video. It is a MUST SEE!!!
