No Passenger : No Parasite

Songfacts®:

  • This song is derived from the chapter on social morality in book three of C. S. Lewis' Mere Christianity, where Lewis describes Christian society: "[The New Testament] gives us a pretty clear hint of what a fully Christian society would be like… It tells us there are to be no passengers or parasites: if man does not work, he ought not to eat." >>
