This guy just may be the first billionaire preacher, and that’s because we live around people so stupid that, it seems, anything is possible. Garbage like this used to be the fodder of jokes. Now it’s as serious as a cancer diagnosis.
I take responsibility for the fact that I have been too complacent and slow to react to the sudden falling apart of my nation. From historian Howard Zinn:
“Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders…and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves… (and) the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem.”
In the United States, our democracy is imploding rapidly, and the collapse of the planet’s environment is following closely behind.
What am I doing about it? Something, but not as much as some. I expect I’ll regret this in my last days on this Earth.
