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 2019-013: Pick Your Future, part 1 of 3 The Dreamers

What kind of future do people dream about when they are lost in their fantasies?  Keep in mind that reality is never totally like dreams but it gives an indication of what people want.  I am going to look at the future fantasies of the Progressives as opposed to those who believe in free enterprise.

Progressives include a lot of people who have never used the term.  It includes the socialist elites.  This would be made up of all the people in the media, education and government who feel they are so superior that they deserve to make decisions for everyone else.  They want government control of everything.  For that reason it includes most of the professional politicians of both parties.  This would also include many business people who should be free enterprise capitalists but are really into crony capitalism.  Crony capitalism is demonstrated by the rich businessmen being in bed with the government and using government regulations to keep the smaller business from succeeding.  This would also include the rioters calling themselves Antifa. 

Those who believe in free enterprise want a minimum of government interference.  They feel they are grown ups and can make their own decisions.  They are willing to take risks and accept the rewards or the cost of failure.  They don’t believe that a government appointee can make any kind of plan that will work in the real world.

To be continued...
