Good questions to ponder. You basically describe three pillars of society in the spiritual, commercial and order/governance areas. The fact that
you'd think to question that any of these three might be in charge is significant. Their influences on your existence has entered your
consciousness, media/commerce is the responsible element that has given rise to the number and quality of things that catch our attention. Newton was
a genius because he had a thought that the apples fall for a reason and didn't naturally assume that it was food from heaven or some other belief,
but the idea, the question of an actual cause-and-effect was inspired. I subscribe to the notion that society is experiencing an evolutionary shift
and despite the best efforts of history's most adept social controllers, there's nobody at the wheel and it's going to be a bumpy ride - if control
is attempted with any vigor. Ride the wave, strap yourself to the mast and hope for the best!
