We in the USA pride ourselves on our freedoms, but it seems we can't do anything to stop the insanity around us. Of course, "insanity" is in the eye of the beholder. I guess that people who just can't seem to get enough . . . of everything, really . . . who have manipulated our system so that they not only acquire nearly everything there is to acquire, and then some, and plan on making sure that no one has the power to even question them, let alone stop them, consider the events of the last 30-40 years to be exactly the way they ought to be - Ascension of the Elite (Substitute "The wealthiest .001%" for "elite.")
And who is hurt by all this? Yes, of course we, as citizens are, but further than that, all the incredible, beautiful, unique, miraculous places and beings on this planet are being slowly, surely, and yes, deliberately wiped out. These crazy people literally believe that destroying the environment will bring Jesus back . . . to get them, of course, and leave the rest of us in the baking Hell that's left. And this is NOT a conspiracy theory. A bunch of them are members of Congress. Really.
Somehow, what I got taught about Jesus doesn't square with this kind of belief. Here's an essay by Bill Moyers that gives the details. Not too long, and an eye-opener to read. billmoyers.com/2005/02/25/welcome-to-doomsday-march-24-2005/
