Reaching Planetary Consensus.
A facebook friend, who appears to share many of the views I do, posted the following quote and picture:
“Religion is regarded by the common people as true,by the wise as false,and by the rulers as useful”~Seneca
There are many “religions.” Many sects of religions. I do not believe wisdom teaches us that they are false. They are one, of many modalities, by which communities (local, national, and planetary) reach consensus. In this regard, religions are not much different than nations, political parties, clubs, generations, and other peer groups.
It is true that rulers find promoting differences between us as being in their own best interests because this keeps us, the people, divided… It stops us from focusing on them and their obscene greed as being the root cause of society’s problems.
I am not a religious scholar. But I do know that religions are not the problem… They did not bring on the bankcrime or leaderscum which has left so many of us hopeless and without resources.
We need to unite those local gardens of creative and spiritual consensus, which already exist, so that their members can do the the work in their community necessary to remove those who always put their own good ahead of what is most beneficial for the whole.
If you doubt the moral similarities among religions (and there is no reason why you should not) then read a little about them. There is not one that exalts the money lenders our governments prostitute us for.

There is a planetary consensus of the world’s peoples (but apparently not its leaders) that bankcrime should be stopped and severely punished.
