From it’s inception as a nation the United States has been a government of white male supremest. As the only power brokers in town, they determined what religion was to be practiced. Ultimately they decided upon Christianity. A particular brand of Christianity known as evangelical fundamentalism based on puritan notions from England. Today we still know that religion as evangelical fundamentalism. It’s still based on puritan notions, but we refer to it as the religious right.Then they forged an economic system called capitalism. Evangelical fundamentalism or the religious right, and capitalism have created so much havoc for the nation. That one wonders why those twin evils have not been declared illegitimate. By all people, who do not fall within the boundaries being rich white males or of the religious right extremism persuasion. Which of course is most of America. Those twin evils need to be systematical abolished, by whatever non-violent measures the majority of people through out the nation elect to exercise. Since both ideologies have been used as weapons of control and oppression. In order to perpetuate itself the government needs both of these evils. It uses Christianity as a means of mind control, and capitalism as means of economic oppression.
We humans are unique in that we have the ability for long term recollection. It’s called consciousness. The government is well aware of this phenomenon. They understand that it is not a persons consciousness that determines their existence. It’s just the opposite. The government understands that social programing determines one consciousness which then controls their existence. The nations government is made up of professional politicians who seek power and wealth for themselves. They do this at the expense of most Americans for the benefit of a very few. The word politic comes from the Latin. Poli meaning “many” and tic meaning “bloodsucking.” Bloodsucking is accomplished through attachment. So in order to maintain power, and wealth they need the influence of Christianity, and in particular the religious right, to keep the masses attached to the political will off professional politicians.
Christianity prepares the nations population to accept the illogical notion that the hand of God mysteriously intervenes in the market place creating an abundance of wealth. This capitalistic doctrine teaches that the closer one is to God the greater will be ones prosperity. That is what is meant by the expression “free markets.”
Such notions do not work for the people of Tampa Bay or the nation. The Los Angeles Times recently reported that Florida cities are very effective at creating employment opportunities. The economic performance of those company created jobs was just as spectacular. So good nationally that five Florida cities rank one through five. Then Florida cities held twelve of the top thirty slots. To the capitalist, what is most important about this finding, is the economic wealth generated for them from the hard toil of labor by those workers. They will not allow workers to share in their success. Even though economic success would not be possible with out the effective labors of the work force in Florida and nationally.
Recently The St. Petersburg Times reported that the Florida is enjoying record lows in regard to employment. Jobs are so available that employers are having difficulty filling those jobs with workers this writer suspects. Despite this trend in employment opportunities. Poverty levels in Florida remain high. This is because wages in Florida are low compared to national averages, according to the Times.
In this writer’s last posting fault was put at the doors of Florida’s politicians for being self serving by not allocating enough money for education. Here is another finding reported by the Times. Florida’s university system rewards fewer degrees than other states. None of Florida’s universities has an engineering program in the nations top forty nine schools. Furthermore, no Florida university ranks in the top one hundred and four liberal art schools.
What does all this mean for the people of Tampa Bay and the rest of the state? It means hardships and continued misery for most people of this state. Change is not just necessary it’s mandatory for our future. In future postings this writer will be addressing issues for change in order to eliminate the hardship and misery experienced by far to many.
