Just found this sermon text by N.T. Wright.   It is a message on Matthew 22:15-22, Jesus’ “render unto Caesar” passage.  here’s a sample:

We whose histories include
rotten boroughs and beer-for-votes rallies should not be surprised at how difficult it is to stage
one-person-one-vote elections in many parts of the world today. Fewer people voted in the last
UK election than in the ‘Big Brother’ TV series. We are not in a wonderful position from which
to offer the rest of the world a permanent political solution. Anyway, the Enlightenment didn’t
only produce democracies. It also produced Napoleon, Bismark, Mussolini, Hitler and Stalin.
