Profiteer or Human Person

I have decided that there are essentially two types of people. There is the profiteer and the human person. The profiteer whose god is money and whose religion is the acquisition of wealth, whose religious obligation is the maintenance of wealth and its gospel is profit is evidenced by the Tea Party Republicans here in the US and its various incarnations across the Pond. Its high priests are marketeers and its hierarchy multi-national corporations. It will offer as sacrifice on its altar of greed everything from human flesh and life to the very air we breathe and water we drink. It will prostitute any principle of representative government, any catechism , any science and any art form. It will devour itself and the rest of us with it. Human persons are the absolute opposite. People over profit is the mantra and respect for all creation the dogma. Responsibility to neighbor is the duty and peace the goal. The spiritual is ever lasting and imminent. Which one do you fit into?

Comments   

We are going to return to our original fully-moderated format in the comments section.

The abusive complaints in the comment sections are just too far out of control at this point and have become a significant burden on our staff. As a result, our moderators will review all comments prior to publication. Comments will no longer go live immediately. Please be patient and check back.

To improve your chances of seeing your comment published, avoid confrontational or antagonistic methods of communication. Really that is the problem we are confronting.

We encourage all views. We discourage ad hominem disparagement.
