This And That (Some Obvious Points)

 Thoughts Riding the Wheel

Any law that is more than a few sentences long is designed to serve more as an employment program for lawyers than as any kind of a solution to a problem. 

The function of the police is more than ever to control the populace than to protect them. 

Etymological analysis of the word "religion" reveals a truth:
Religare (Latin v.) bind or rebind
Ligamen (Latin n.) a binding

The most hard core religionists are actually revealed as overcompensating faithless atheists  who do not believe that God can carry out his Will without the assistance of Man. Indeed, they doubt that God can do anything without the bludgeon of Man's religion.

We now begin to see Europeans revert to their default setting: Hate and Blame for Jews in ways large and small as shown in this example:
The British Advertising Standards Authority has banned ads for tourism to Israel that depicts the Wailing Wall or the Temple Mount because those sites are not part of Israel, taking the politically correct side of the Arabs. In their bureaucratic verbiage: "We understood, however, that the status of the occupied territory of the West Bank was the subject of much international dispute, and, because we considered that the ad implied that the part of East Jerusalem featured in the image was part of the state of Israel, we concluded that the ad was likely to mislead."

Now that corporations are unbound in their political activities, well, spending, thanks to an undemocratic Supreme Court, can they take a depreciation deduction on the politicians they own?

Union officials who spend enough time listening to management eventually start to find themselves in sympathy with them to an extent. It is a form of the Stockholm Syndrome. This also happens to those who watch Fox News.

When they first ascended to power in their lands, the Muslims preserved knowledge, understanding its value. When later the clerics attain power they destroy knowledge, having become ignorant in the understanding of their religion by then.

People like big government when it acts in the interest of the people. Corporations therefore attain double benefit by manipulating government to help themselves exclusively: The direct benefit of government aid and the indirect benefit of the resentment of the people for government, which is the only shield they have against the depredations of these same corporations' irresponsible amoral capitalism. 

The World must change when God's attention is attracted to the World. But God chose to be ignorant, to withdraw full attention from the World in order to make a place of Mystery.
