The pot calling the kettle black (no pun intended)

The Bible say that "by their fruits you shall know them." I long ago understood that human beings have a grand ability to justify any horrific deed as being something "good in the long run." You know, the ol' "the ends justify the means" kind of logic. And none of this is new. But when you seriously speak with some of these guys you soon come to realize how easily we could become a religious state or a police state or entertain the possibility of another Nazi Party and the SS.
Its all about anxiety and control and fear and greed. More often than not those that profess "God" have more fear within their hearts than anything even resembling faith. The early Christians were to a great extent the first "Socialists" but America's "Kings Kids" scream about the idea as if it were leprosy. I can see why. We have become so not unlike pigs in a trough that I'd be nervous too that I wasn't getting enough. But when is enough, enough? Really? How much money does one man need?
But the quest for power; now that's a whole other ball game. "Its not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game" is an ideology for idiots. You have to lie, scrape, cheat, steal and ask God's blessing. That is the way of it. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition, God Dammit!
Truth is, I feel like we are surrounded by border collies and we like sheep are herded between the posts and barrels and ultimately corralled just in time for a shearing or the slaughter.
Once it was Kings and Lords and Popes. Now its rich men wanting more and more while telling you to be patriotic and God fearing good little boys and girls.
