Jesus Upside Down

Note: No video weekend today because I am utterly sick this weekend and had a tough week. So, here is a little article I drafted some time ago:

A weird but not uncommon mentality flaw (typically boosted and imposed by those in power) is: loving and admiring the rich, and despising the poor. This society warp has been around for some time. Even Jesus complained about it according to the Bible, making it pretty long ago by now. This is so badly wrong. We humans should always care about ALL humans (or even beyond!). And the poor are never poor by their own design but by the design from the rich. (And the rich have always (mis-)used religion to oppress the poor and protect their own selfish interests.

It’s ironic when people claim hat it is in fact very difficult for a rich person to live a virtuous life. It is actually much much easier for rich people to live virtuous lives, if they only tried. They cpulf gove away so much stolen wealth or even use it to set up stabilizing institutions. But they never do. I still have to meet one who does; hence Jesus’ promise that the rich will never go to heaven.

There is a nice comment I came across online (on dailykos, which is a platform I rarely look into because it so so DNC-allied; in other words allied with a corrupt elite; blasting Sanders in 2016 and 2020… still, sometimes (very rarely) good folks show up there). Here is the quote:

Jesus was asked by a virtuous rich man what ELSE he could do as he obeyed all the commandments. Jesus told the man the only thing the man needed to do was to sell everything he had and give it to the poor and then, “…come and follow me…” When the rich man refused to give up his riches, Jesus watched the man walk away in tears because the man was so tied to his comforts he could not give them up. Then Jesus turned to the crowd and commented, “Truly, it is harder for a rich man to enter the gates of heaven than for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle….” (Matthew 19:16-25).

Yes the next passage (Matt 19:26) is about Jesus’ apostles being astonished when he said that, and his comment that “with God all things are possible…” but again you have to understand it in the context of the times ~ and actually our times as well.

There is a mistaken belief that if you are rich than somehow God loves you more than poor people. This is something the rich hold over others’ heads with all three of these religions in spite of the very strict and quite clear mandate and morals that all say “You SHARE.”

I suspect the man referred to nowadays as Jesus having been one of history’s greatest grassroots activists for solidarity and societal justice, quickly executed by the criminal lords, and then repainted by wannabe lords (preachers / church masters) in alignment with the already existing lords into an alleged promoter for a god and angels and an afterlife. Real Christians would fight for democracy and a no rich and no poor egalitarian society. But where are they nowadays? Most supposed Christians now align themselves with the Hell on Earth power and wealth pyramid, making them Anti-Christians actually. So sad.

Hope for a Coronavirus-Stimulated Revolution

(Note: the Video Weekends are currently stalled because of my relocation — in the worst case this blog may pause for some weeks while I lack both time and Internet access)

While the current pandemic is being used by the robber billionaires and their political puppets to steal from us what little we have left, some folks point out that this catastrophe can be a perfect situation for us, the people, to revolt and make our world better, as other nationwide or global catastrophes have historically often done. Catastrophes pull people out of their comfort zone and push them over the edge. Some folks even seem to be sure this is going to happen now, even globally.

This would be great, but I frankly am not at all sure the current pandemic is igniting a global revolution, as much as I wish for it. While the U.S. is getting badly mauled by the pandemic and the rich oligarchs are using it as an opportunity to claw away from us the remaining crumbs left after generations of continued stealing from us, most other countries’ governments are actually performing a lot better in protecting their populations, not only from the virus but also the tragic loss of income and housing. So, it seems to me that it is OUR country that should respond with a revolution, and if it did so, it could lead other parts of the world that way like it did in the past.

But, after having been brainwashed for generations, can we still pull this off? I wonder. I hope but wonder. At the very least, I think this will require grassroots activists to get it started, not through violence, but by organizing crisis management at the bottom and thereby connecting us with each other and teaching the large bottom that we must rise and topple the top and shift from the current sociopathic exploitation culture to an egalitarian one of No Rich and No Poor, No Lies or Violence to control and enslave others, no more ignoring of nature’s challenges or fellow people’s suffering, and following the overarching principle of a Good Life for All.

We need a mentality change. And it won’t happen by itself. So, everybody craving for a better world, play your part.
