The war on drugs has resulted in an explosion of drugs. The war against poverty has also been around for several decades now and levels of poverty have only become far worse. The campaign to improve education has only left the product of the system dumber than ever. The wars on terrorism, with trillions spent and terrorism has not only survived it but has thrived because of it.
There seems to be something wrong, the more we push against something, somehow the more we draw it in. Is there something wrong with our approach that wants to change the world through control and punishment?
I believe religion is at the core of our problems and is often given credit for being a cure when it in fact and the approach it generates is the cause that lies at the heart of our dysfunctions.
Interesting that the other day I was discussing Zionism with a Zionist. He acused me of being a racist that just hated Jews.
I told him that a Zionist calling me a racist is really over the top and tried to explain that Zionism is racism by definition! Judaism is both a race and a religion!
I asked him he Jewish God was a racist and told him to consider this seriously.
The fact is the Jewish God is a racist and according to them they are the recipients of special and exclusive considerations to the exclusion of everybody else. This long history goes back in the Torah to the story of Abraham and his covenant with the almighty.
Is it possible that this religion is founded on racism, for the benefit of racists, and that it doles judgement and Privelage by its adherents to humanity based solely on race?
It seems this has backfired because Judaism has attracted more powerful and abundant racism against it than it has been able to oppose and inflict.
The inevitable push-back from a racist theology, it’s not surprising is opposing counter racism. So Abrahams covenant has been a curse and not a blessing, and their God more demonic than saintly.
