Woody thinks the oligarchs preach "hope" through their sock-puppets in the "faith community" because "hope" is an "antidote" to despair, and despair is dangerous to the Owners. It's not "religion" exactly, that's the opiate, it's "Hope." "Religion" creates in its adherents a spirit of hope, and hope preserves the oppressors, because the oppressed "hope" for better days, rather than overthrowing their Bosses.
Beck v. Japan:
Faux TV fucktard-in-chief Glenn Beck thinks the events of the last week are "God's" way of sending the Japanese a message. And so do I. But it's not the same message. Beck claimed
"What God does is God’s business, I have no idea. But I’ll tell you this: whether you call it Gaia or whether you call it Jesus — there’s a message being sent. And that is, ‘Hey, you know that stuff we’re doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it,’” Beck said.He suggested that God could be appeased — and presumably convinced to not cause any more earthquakes — if people followed the biblical Ten Commandments.
Commandments, schmandments! It's not a general warning to the "people." If it is God's voice we're hearing here, why wouldn't we think "God" was telling the Japanese to lay off the whales, and stop slaughtering dolphins? ... Just askin'
Its funny. Where I live/work, I get American and French Canadian stations. The Canadians are having constant coverage of the Japanese disaster. Americans, seem to care less with little more than an occasional brief mention if anything interrupts regular programming and music. Party on USA! (silent gag)
Woody Wiqiliques Konopak
Due to the influence of the largest, most complex, most comprehensive, most expensive, most extensive, most scientific, best tested, best proven, cradle-to-grave, propaganda/brainwashing regime EVAR, the overwhelming majority of "Americans" believe that WE are the most important, most exceptional people on the planet, and that our 330 million people (about 5% of the human total) are entitled to their central place in the constellations of power and influence, because it is GOD'S will that it be so!
