A Reminder Of The Popeâ€™s Remarks Of A Godless World As He Resigns
This is a stretch for me. I am posting this for what the Pope is quoted as saying in the article link below citing his resignation. This is a very, very important issue and is consistent with what has been said countless times on here; modern corporate capitalist society is Godless. In the world of unstoppable forces meeting immovable objects, this creates quite a source of almost unimaginable potential energy for those connected to their humanity. I mean potential as in available, stored-up or yet unrealized kinetic energy.
Now mind you, economics is not about numbers and statistics as institutionalized ignorance taught as economics curriculum would have us believe. It is a social phenomena. When one realizes this, one also realizes the Godless corporate state is the immovable object and our humanity is the unstoppable force. The Godless corporate state is at odds with our humanity. And that will likely be its demise as more and more belief systems supporting this Godlessness collapse and are replaced by a greater truth.
"In vast areas of the world today, there is a strange forgetfulness of God," he told 1 million young people gathered on a vast field for his first foreign trip as pope, World Youth Day in Cologne, Germany in 2005. "It seems as if everything would be just the same even without Him."
Now you can define God as your spiritualty, your religion, an intelligent creator, your inner divinity, your mind’s higher power from which timeless and boundary-less human values are derived, your conscious mind and its expanding awareness and mindfulness or however else you want to define it. It doesn’t matter if you are religious, spiritual, agnostic or atheist. It doesn’t matter if you are Buddhist, Muslim, Shintoist, Hindu, Jewish or Christian. It doesn’t matter if you are black, white, red, yellow, brown or purple. Those are all simply meaningless class-based words used by a class-based system to disconnect people from their humanity and to separate us from the cycle of life. The intent is to create separateness that results in endless violence, bigotry, small-mindedness and control. Or, as George Carlin would likely say, “These are symbols for the symbol-minded.”.
What Godlessness means is there is no greater meaning or human meaning or greater purpose to existence as defined by the corporate state beyond its glorification of work and exaltation of the self. The corporate state derives its obedience and power through the conformity of the religion of work and the associated culture of selfishness. This is a completely ignorant, dumbed-down, proletariat mindset. Which, quite frankly, is why we have become a nation run by idiots. Modern corporate capitalist society’s values encourage and even reward stupidity, conformity and ignorance. And, this intellectual beat down is accomplished through the institutionalization of corporate state values. They teach us what to think rather than how to think.
This ignorant, institutionalized belief system is inconsistent with the our humanity and its innate inquisitiveness, truthiness, kindness, altruism, vulnerability, compassion, dignity and other timeless human virtues. It destroys our humanity through force and violence. That is the issue of our time. That is what is creating social and political clashes all around the world.
A Godless world is an ignorant and inhumane world.
