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 2021-223: Security Is on Its Way

The Progressive* dream is to make you perfectly safe.  They will do this by managing your life and taking away all risks.  They think they are clever enough to do it and they know you don’t have a clue.  This is why the Soviet Union always had a five year plan.  To date they have never worked.  You see, according to Adam Smith, there are too many variables at work for a finite number of human beings to keep ahead of all the changes.  Ignore it all you want.  It is still true.  The Law of Unintended Consequences always rears its ugly head.

I hope that all the snowflakes of America enjoy the security they have in store for them.  I have been trying to remember all the ways in which my government has tried to keep me safe.  So many of the limitations on our life have become automatic that we don’t even think about them any more.  Here are a few:

Banning artificial sweeteners
Nutrition labels

Seat belts
Car seats
Air bags
Increased fuel efficiency
Handicap parking at golf courses and gyms

Reduced flow showers and toilets
Making incandescent lights illegal
Carbon monoxide, smoke and radon detectors in my bedroom

Mandatory education
Removing offensive language from Mark Twain books
20 MPH speed limits in school zones

Licenses for brow weavers
Inspections and ratings for restaurants

Items keep coming to me but I have to stop somewhere.  I tried to arrange it by area of interference.  To add to the list all you really need to do is stop and think about something you do or pay for that you really would not do if not mandated by the government.
