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 2023-272: Divide and Dilute

In talking to the family geek about why businesses locate in large cities, he talks about how important it is for people to be close to each other so that they can contact other power brokers, meet face to face and interact to discuss things. He also says that because many people live in the area it is easier to get the specific specialists they need.  

As I continue to think about this, Washington comes to mind.  One of the reasons why all of the agencies in Washington are there, is to facilitate them contacting each other, relate with each other, do all the things that they do between the two houses of Congress, multiple departments and three branches of the government.  I’m thinking that maybe that’s not a good idea.  Maybe it would be better if we would take the federal government and divide it up in order to make it hard for them to work together like that.

This is not an original idea.  Others have advocated moving things like the Department of the Interior to Wyoming.  I would suggest the Department of Justice be relocated in northern Nigeria.  Of course, one of the problems with sending federal departments to isolated locations is the potential pollution they would bring with them.  It is a difficult problem.  Do you put all the evil in one quarantine location like we have now or spread it in hopes that it will not have the concentration fo infect.

Hard choices for hard times.
