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 2016-332: Keep Dreaming

One of the principles that capitalists like Henry Ford understood was that if your employees can’t afford your product then your market is very limited.  Increased sales means more profit.  He figured out that if you sold one Cadillac and made $500 it was less than if you sold 1,000 Model T’s and made $1.00 apiece.  Find the balance of paying as well as you can, selling as low as you can and making money on volume.  That is capitalism at work.

We need to apply that to the third world.  Much is being made about Carrier and Trump.  I take it all with a grain of salt but there is an opportunity we need to take.  We need to find ways to raise the economic level of the average Mexican so that they can buy American made air conditioners.

One side of that is raising their income.  That will never happen without political reform in Mexico.  I was talking to a man from Mexico and all he could talk about was the corruption of the government and how rich the politicians were.  There must be a peaceful way we can encourage liberty and free markets in that country.

A second side is to lower the cost of A/C so that everyone can afford it.  We need a Henry Ford of air conditioning.  Why have we lost the ability of dream big.  It used to be the American way.  Now the American way seems to be snowflakes in the street having social tantrums.

A third leg is cheap energy.  That could be atomic.  It could be hydrogen.  It could be something we haven’t thought of yet.

The future has so much potential if we would get rid of the Progressive mind state that tells us we need the government to take care of us and the EPA to keep us safe from ourselves.

Keep dreaming.

  1. I agree with you EXCEPT on atomic power. EVERYWHERE it's been tried, dangerous concerns have surfaced. Even the spent material is buried in abandoned mines and in landfills. We don't need ANY form of energy that produces poisons that hang around for hundreds or THOUSANDS of years.

  2. I think there are solutions to that but even if there isn't we still have hydrogen.

    Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
