Marx On Alienation

In Circulation the capitalist and the worker confront each other only as the vendors of commodities, but owing to the specific, opposed nature of the commodities they sell to each other, the worker necessarily enters the process of production as a component of the use-value, the real existence, of capital, its existence as value. And […]

Thesis Against Western Christianity

To many the good news of salvation is a warm fuzzy feeling or a vague promise that one day–after you die– you’ll float off to the sterile vacuum of heaven…far, far away. While this is nice in theory, it is, by implication, delusional. Yet this is the party line of the Western Church, its central […]

The Capitalist State

A capitalist society is biased upon the exploitation of labor. A small minority owns everything; the working masses own nothing. The capitalists command. The workers obey. The capitalist exploit. The workers are exploited. The very essence of capitalist society is found in this merciless and ever-increasing exploitation. Capitalist production is a practical instrument for the […]

God’s Social Genius Baffles Capitalists

Under capitalism, everything is game. Whether human life, labor power, earth, knowledge, ideas, thought or other abstract concepts: if it can be bought, sold, traded, invested in or speculated on it becomes commodified. Once absorbed by capital circulation all things are disciplined to the rigors of value creation. Profit for the sake of profit then […]

The 2008 Financial Crisis!

The financial crisis of 2008 was the logical conclusion of free market development of the financial sector–itself the logical result of the incentives of capitalist competition.

That is, he is not condemning the physical fact of having great material resources. There is not that kind of asceticism in Jesus that almost instinctively hates well-being and abundance, the kind […]

Heaven: A Social Political Analysis

Heaven. What does it mean? Where will it be, what will it be and how does it look ? There are many different answers to these questions. But one must consider that many people’s imagination of heaven can be misleading. Some who claim to be religious say no one knows where heaven will be or what […]

Moses: The Enemy Of The State!

Karl Marx and Fredrick Engels bear witness in the Communist Manifesto that “the history of hitherto all existing societies is the history of class struggles.” The bible tells us the same thing, before and after the flood. Of freeman and slave. Partisan and plebeian. Of lord and surf. Guild master and journeyman. In short, oppressor vs. […]

The Oppression Of Capitalism

Capitalism is an oppressive economic and social system. Citizens with little or no financial security, and are in the most unfavorable social positions have very little stake in capitalism, however, defend it and have faith in its promises. The question remains ‘why’ would such a system garner so much support from the very individuals it fails? […]
