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 2017-250: Plow and Crown: Elites and the Unwashed Masses

It used to be “as California goes, so goes the nation”.  I hope that is not true any longer.  We should change that to “If California goes, let them.” 

In reality, with the progressives so deeply rooted in our government agencies what we need to start realizing is that “as Europe goes, so goes the nation”.  That is not a good thing.  What got this going was a quick stop at the English Newspaper Telegraph.  I did not bookmark the article but it explained how Great Britain was taking steps to make it impossible to own a private vehicle.  They are proposing a special tax on diesel and gas powered cars in certain cities and on certain highways.  The stated goal was to do away with automobiles.  Today there was a second article saying it couldn’t work because they did not have enough electrical capacity.  Keep in mind that the lack of evidence for global warming does not keep them from taking away your options in order to fight it.  They will continue to press no matter what the facts say.

Be warned.  The elites want the common people to be taxed out of their cars and onto mass transit.  People that rely on government for transportation are easier to control.  It is easier to take away their options.  You will be forced to shop in local stores that will be more like 7/11's than Walmart Superstores.  You will only be able to live in small apartments because everyone will need to live within walking distance of a bus stop or train station.  If you want a feel for what that would be like, go to IKEA and look at some of their cute little living spaces that are around 600 square feet.

And it will allow more room for their estates and country homes.  They will always have their chauffeured limousines and security details.  They won’t need to rub elbows with the unwashed masses.
