A Challenge to Our Beliefs

"Century of the Self", a 2002 4-part documentary from the BBC is a vital bit of information that sheds much light on the mind control mechanics of modern societies. But a warning, once you watch and understand it, you will never be able to put your head in the sand again.

All of man’s creations and theories are flawed from their moment of conception; whether it is economic or atomic theory. The farther the implementation of this “thing” is from service/sacrifice for the other (i.e. Christ-like), and the closer it is to selfish desires (i.e. Pharisee-like), the more detrimental it is to our humanity. This is what Pope Francis is saying. This is not a matter that can be quickly elucidated in a single sermon – it has to be gained from a life of, and living in, the Church. But as an example, yes, Facebook can be a useful tool to help people communicate with each other, just as it can be self-imposed prison sentence for those who wrap their entire existence around everyone needing to know what they had for breakfast.

A private company is NOT in business to "serve the public" but to sell a product/service for a profit. And if the business doesn't want to serve a particular person, then it should have to right to do so - without the moniker of the State's approval, nor the threat of the State's condemnation. If the business' plan is proper, it will succeed; if it is faulty it will fail.
"If the Republican Party cannot get some grip of the actual world we live in, and from it generalize and actively promote a program that means something to masses of people -- why, somebody else will." And what do masses of people want? Government acting as Santa Clause! This is what has gotten us to the point we are at. Only a great national cathartic period will open the eyes of those "who have eyes but do not see" to the wisdom of "one of those dark little shops which apparently never sell anything. If, for any reason, you go in, you find, at the back, an old man, fingering for his own pleasure some oddments of cloth."

Surgeons from four cities were at a conference. One from New York said “I love operating on accountants. Everything inside is numbered.” One from Chicago said “I love operating on librarians. Everything inside is in alphabetical order.” One from LA said “I love operating on construction workers. Everything inside is labeled.” One from DC said “I’ve got you all beat. I love operating on politicians. They have no guts, heart, balls or spine – and the head and @$$ are interchangeable.”

Painfull...but accurate. If these are not the End Times, I shudder to think what the human condition will be in some future dystopia that will truely usher them in.

Don't be so glib in looking to an implosion of Russia. If it does, Islam will move in to create more chaos, you can then look to a fall of western Europe and a final realization of the Caliphate envisioned by the Muslims of the 1400's.
Don't know...50 or so years after Elvis...is western civilization looking good? If you ask me the jury is still out!

"To underscore these statistics, Earl Graves Jr., CEO of Black Enterprise magazine, said that blacks are six times as likely as whites to purchase a Mercedes-Benz and that blacks who purchase Jaguars have an income one-third less than whites who purchase the same vehicles. This simple statistic points to a root cause of most of the economic shortcomings of African culture. Too much import is placed on flashy "stuff" being an indication of a person's intrinsic worth - rather than placing whats "inside" at the top of the list. Just point'n out what is out there.
