Joan and Loren and everybody else,
I was wondering which Chris Hedges book to read first?
Hedges is never boring! He does describe what is happening and gives the background story. He is the man who wrote a must read:
War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning
According to Wiki, Chris Hedges is a Presbyterian minister and also a Christian anarchist. I watched a little of his speech on his Trump compared to Commodus. I don't think he is boring at all.
Excellent post Loren!
Man had created God in his own image, not the other way around. He had done it through sheer terror, and who could blame him? Unfortunately he had made too good a job. The god he had invented was just as cruel and careless as man himself. Not a deity to whom one should seriously address a prayer.― Richard HerleyThis is the thing that floors me: man creates god to alleviate his fear of death ... then winds up substituting fear of god for that fear of death! What The Actual FUCK???
