GOD SAYS

God says
“Let there be capitalism –
But only within limits.”

Upper middle class above –
Lower middle class below –
While anything else will be viewed as anti-human
And “Not Permitted!”

Billionaires wear the masks of invisible monsters –
Stealing the opportunity to become fully human
From hundreds of millions of men and women across the world.

Extreme capitalism – that is, capitalism without limits –
Bends everything to its accelerating force –
Whether politics, religion, beauty, or meaning –
With a resulting loss, across the board, of proportionality.

Human capitalism with limits –
Retains a potential of human freedom
And preserves the natural goodness
Of our “home” – this blue/green earth –
Along with the purity of its water, air, and soil.

Just as an absolute Second Amendment has flooded our country with guns
Used to murder young children and, of course, numerous others –
So absolute capitalism empowers a handful of human beings to become “diamond gods” –
Humanly heartless –
With the remainder of humanity channeled into wage slavery for meeting basic human needs.

God says
“Let there be capitalism –
But only within limits.”

LITTLE EGOS, BIG EGO

Aren’t all the historical “gods”
Just symbolic collections of mass popular cultural “egos”

Intensely promoted so all the little egos have a Big Ego to pray to
And, consequently, be validated – giving “meaning” to their lives.

However, “collective” meaning has no meaning at all.

Both little egos and Big Egos are a waste of time –
Only freedom matters
Because freedom empowers us to address “reality”
Which, by definition, is constantly changing –
And why we need freedom to do likewise.

Actually, God is the only Reality –
There’s really nothing else – since fantasy doesn’t count –
We need freedom to love reality –
Each second, minute, hour, month, year,
And eternity of our lives.
