John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Denver Elects Councilwoman Promising To Usher In Communism ‘By Any Means Necessary’

Candi CdeBaca beat incumbent Albus Brooks in a runoff race for Denver City Council last week, running on a platform to bring about communism “by any means necessary.”

CdeBaca was among three new city council members to unseat incumbents in Denver in last week’s elections, according to The American Mirror. She reportedly defeated Brooks by the margin of 52.4% to 47.6%.

She participated in the “Denver Decides” candidate panel in April, where she explained her agenda to usher in a communist state and do away with “extractive” capitalism.

“I don’t believe our current economic system actually works. Um, capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, something has to be exploited, that’s land, labor or resources,” CdeBaca said.

“I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new, and I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources and distribution of those resources,” she continued. “And whatever that morphs into is I think what will serve community the best and I’m excited to usher it in by any means necessary.”

CdeBaca wrote an extensive thank you message to her supporters on Facebook the day following the election, attributing her success to her staying “real.” She wrote:

We won every precinct that we could walk! We won every damned one! THAT is about PEOPLE vs. money! Hard work vs. money! Connection vs. shallow engagement!

The Eastside taught me really early what “real” really means. Don’t talk about it, BE about it. I knew in my heart if community who knew this principle still existed in the Eastside, they would see me and recognize real. If they didn’t I was cool with it too because I wanted to serve those who understand this principle. They are here, they showed up, they recognized real. We won this battle while our communities are at war.

Carlos Valverde, state director of left-wing activist group Colorado Working Families, likened CdeBaca to New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, according to the American Mirror.

“Its historic. It is in the vein of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. … A victory that really demonstrates people power over money power” he said.
