create a church only for men that molest children because they are forbidden to molest women
charge all your members tax so you can build gigantic buildings and do some philanthropy here and there (but never ever provide any “real” service to them, no wifi, no free coffee and do not care about their mental well being, because this would mean a lot of effort (cost money)
the climate construction site
have you EVER seen a church that has solar panels on the roof?
no? (on TV once, in Mexico, hey there is actually ONE, why is this not the norm?)
Why does “THE CHURCH” (!!!) not harvest the powers that come from the heavens above!
Why does it not care about long term survivability of mankind on this planet?
the mental construction site
Especially during crisis such as Corona and war, people WOULD have need a church that actually takes care of them and their mental troubles.
If families can not get along – another construction site where a true church could work for the better on this planet.
What part in that will the churches around this planet play a role?
Or are churches – in fact – just another “company ltd.”, that exists only because of their centuries old privileges, put down in century old contracts that generate “sufficient” income streams, that are taxed offshore (meaning: not at all).
the catholic church surely needs a restart
this restart was centuries ago the protestant church.
This +10% “inflation” event, shows mankind what money really is: just paper.
Don’t let urself be blinded, central banks will HASTE to a digital currency, because they lost control of the paper currency, they have been printing in the trillions, giving it to private banks, doing gambling for maximum profit (not investment, just gambling).
That is THE major cause for the push to digital currency, which will in fact be a complete new currency, that might be traded with an -50% purchasing power discount:
2x paper Dollars for 1x electronic Dollar (why? because for fake reasons: “electronic is sooo much better”, real reason “because banksters printed too much paper dollars destroying the dollars purchasing power” (aka inflation) and want to re-start the “printing” game with e-Dollars)
“France’s Richest Man Gets a Free Lunch From the ECB”
“LVMH’s bond issue to pay for Tiffany was cheaper than Bernard Arnault’s wildest hopes.”
“The luxury giant raised 7.5 billion euros ($8.3 billion) and 1.55 billion pounds ($2 billion), over a range of maturities from two to 11 years, to help finance its $16 billion purchase of Tiffany & Co.”
Please Mr US-Biden, of course Putin’s Russia’s aggression need to be countered with one hand, but in the other hand make an offer, a “new deal” that allows a dangerous “cornered” Putin a positive way out of the situation.
What are the reasons that Putin’s Russia AND Biden’s US want to escalate the Ukraine situation?
If some BigOil corruptionists aka “investors”, think, they can take over Russia’s gas fields as they did with Lybia, forget about it.
Russia is a nuclear armed country
the end of fossil fuels is near anyway (basically becoming worthless)
Yes of course some anti Russian hardliners in Washington would like to see a Russia in chaos.
But even without foreign intervention, Russia will have to evolve beyond a Zarist-Stalinist system anyway.
This is where Putin’s feeling of importance is more important to him, than Russia.
Otherwise Putin would make room for the Russian monarchy to evolve.
Putin has a problem: He is more a Stalin than a Lenin.
A power addict
does not care much about ideologies like communism (“everyone being equal, owning equal” concepts)
thinks that “rule by fear” (Stalin’s terror) works
does not care much about economics (unless it helps to gain power)
does not care much about his own citizens
just as the British is nostalgic about the lost “Empire” and it’s colonies
“Russian leader often evokes Ivan Ilyin, a philosopher who praised Mussolini and Hitler”
‘He seems to be echoing Ilyin – who wrote that in the case of Ukraine’s independence from Russia, the smaller neighbour “will become a source of civil and international wars for centuries”.’ (aljazeera.com)
Mr Putin if you read this: why believe this book?
the situation is simple:
The Soviet Union was an interesting experiment of socialism, that, after Lenin’s death got turned into full-blown-terror-dicatorship by your idol: Josef Stalin (nobody liked it, nobody).
if Russia HAD an new, innovative way of economics, you would not have to resort to violence (which makes look Russia like a primitive culture from the middle-ages, that sees no other way but war and violence (which means killing innocent civilians) in order to achieve it’s goals)
Not a single German thinks about invading nowadays-Poland for nostalgic reasons (to get back Danzig) or nowadays-Czech-Republic (to get back Bohemia).
Which translates into:
“low yield Hiroshima”
Putin says, he is allowed to do, whatever the US does/has done in the past
btw. “low yield” nuclear weapons have the power of Hiroshima & Nagasaki
The problem with that:
While the US heroically won World War 2, it also reached it’s moral peak with the end of WW2 and declined steady afterwards into plutocracy/oligarchy.
while the historic “fuck ups” of post-WW2-US are well known and documented, the question is:
does EVERY other country need to repeat the past mistakes of another country in order to learn the lesson?
if yes: this will kill a lot of people, millions and billions and in the worst case all of mankind.
So the problem with “fuck ups” is, that after a certain point, the capacity of this planet to withstand more “fuck ups” is limited and becomes “too expensive” in the sense of “End of all mankind” kind of too expensive (be it a nuclear war fuck up or climate change fuck up).
