Dominion Theology & Democracy (IV)
When it comes to subjective sympathies, I back gold. When put in the context as an enhancer of the Divine, there is nothing like the color of gold to transmit the right aura and sentiment. There is also such a thing as a Golden rule or proportion. However, when it comes to gold as a substitute for fiat currency, I am not so sure about the ‘precious’ metal. While I am sympathetic to the arguments of the ‘gold bugs’, I am not sure that there will be enough of the right stuff to buy when the time of emergency becomes actual. I am of the opinion that capitalism has exhausted the organic resources of our planet—even if its core were of solid gold not iron.
Remember the time when the power grids shut down in
the U.S. Northeast and people were shitting in the hallways of high rise
Though the smell is not the same smell as when corpses rot, it’s right next to
it, it is almost as if. New York
Or imagine that you are downtown
visiting a friend in a high
rise apartment http://kristenbornemann.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/san_fran_view_0.jpg
. The building shakes. You look out
the window and see the San Francisco
fall down. Then you fall out of bed, because the city has been struck with the
long overdue earthquake. The quake measures 8.3 magnitudes on the Richter
scale. Though the building did not fall down, and you only fell out of bed, the
building has, nevertheless, taken a twist, and the elevator shaft is out of
order. What do you do? Golden
Your wealthy banker friend crawls over to his safe in the wall and takes out two solid gold bricks which he has stashed there. He gives you one to put in your backpack, he takes the other, and you both grope your way through the apartment to the emergency exit and stairwell.
Once you are at the ground level, you realize that you cannot get out of the building, because the waters of the Pacific have flooded San Francisco streets http://www.arturhernadi.com/Go4/2006-10-24_SanFranciscoDowntown.jpg , the pressure of mud is earily pressing into the building and turning the turnstyle door, and no one has thought of providing rubber boats as part of the emergency kit. So, you climb back to the roof, where, hopefully, a helicopter will pick you up. Meanwhile, though you have a brick of gold on you, you have no sandwiches or water to drink.
I am aware that all chaotic scenarios when described beforehand appear engineered by a nut cake or a conspiracy theorist. Nevertheless, sometimes the ‘impossible’ happens: when you get to the rooftop, you hear the voice of the opera singer Enrico Caruso sing “

Though the killing extravaganza of the buffaloes by white hunters and the gold rush was already over by some fifty years, the American West was still near virgin land, and deforestation still went on with exuberance and denied more cautious folk who warned that if this was but masturbatory foreplay to what praise of unbridled ‘freedom’ and ‘capitalism’ will in due course do America as a whole. The effort to put a stop to ‘democratic’ violence would necessarily include such events as ‘9/11’.
That is, all the gold in the world is unlikely to

So, why should
Recently on an internet blog site, I read a reader
express the fear that we live at a time when religious cults such as Dominion
Theologists http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominion_Theology and its suicidal Christian fanatics are not only on
the loose in
America, but are
a major ideological force in the military services. U.S.
Because Dominion Theology presumes to have a mandate in civil affairs (to politically reconstruct society), it represents a no lesser danger to the West as a parallel theology among Muslims presents to Muslim cultures or the SS presented to the Germans, or the Bolsheviks to the Russians. Unfortunately, the American ‘war on terror’, which President Obama apparently wants to end, but has not yet shown that he can either ‘start’ or ‘end’ much of anything, contributes much to the strengthening of DT Cells within the ranks of the empire’s armed forces.
Eventually such violent neo-orthodox ‘theologies’ will go their way, but like the extremists among communists and fascists, probably not before they gain a global stage, shed blood, ‘do their thang’, fail as a consequence of suffering a defeat in war, the perpetrators are brought under control, and the future sends American ‘democracy’ to join the unmentionables in the future.
