Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2014-130: Fascism Is More than Mussolini

The frenzy over Global Warming is a good example of the fascist need to use everything to increase the control of the elites.  If it gets hot it is global warming.  If it gets cold, global warming.  If the economy is good we need more government action to redistribute wealth.  If the economy is bad, same.

Fascism is a form of government that has many levels of tyranny but always centers on the state being the center of control and importance.  It can hide in democratic forms like we have or be blatant in a Communist state.  It can use capitalism as well as state control.  It involves a small core of elites who think that they have the right to make decisions for everyone else.  They wear the label of Democrat, Republican or Independent.  They can be political, academic or economic leaders.  Usually all work together.  Every choice they make is to increase the control of the central government because it is the only wise authority.  Personal freedom is only allowed in areas that the state has not decided to be in control.  Those areas get smaller on a regular basis.

Think of the concerns that are being used to take away your freedom:  The War on Drugs, terrorism, climate change, overpopulation, gun control, war, poverty, racism, Christianity.  The list could go on because anything that can advance the agenda of the fascists from left and right is fair game.  All of them are advanced out of concern for your safety.  Of course the safest people in the country are those in straight jackets, with a feeding tube of approved foods, locked in padded rooms with 24 hour surveillance cameras. 

Maybe all of us should register as Libertarians and make laws illegal.
