Society, Politics and economics

Episodes of Fawlty Towers are being pulled off the TV(!) and Churchill’s photo mysteriously removed from Google. In the middle of all this chaos is there something that Christians can helpfully say? Is there teaching from the Bible that helps us think about how to live at peace with those who have different beliefs?
