All the current xenophobic and religious hatred is designed to protect the dominate religious class. However, the system will crash and burn. Humanity will be better when the current organised religious class declines and is removed from this Earth.
No its not, money itself is not evil, nothing wrong with it at all, never has never will be, you need it to buy a house, food, car, pay the bills etc
Here comes a big part of our program. The concept of acquisition through purchasing, has become just about the only way one can acquire things.
The earth has been carved up basically in it's entirety by people who don't just 'own' it, but 'control' the resources of the earth itself.
NENEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- The nation's poverty rate jumped to 14.3% in 2009, its highest level since 1994, and the 43.6 million Americans in need is the highest number in 51 years of record-keeping, the government said Thursday.
The Office of Management and Budget defined the poverty threshold level as less than $21,954 for a family of four in 2009. The poverty rate increased for all racial groups except Asians.
But lenders repossessed more than 95,000 homes -- a record -- and that was up from 76,000 a year ago.

Oh but they have, it's called global warming and the carbon's emission tax they are proposing. They are in fact charging us for our relationship with the sun.
So sorry to say, they have that covered. Nothing in this life is free, not because it is meant to be, but because we have been painstakingly and painfully taught that from birth on.

I've seen a few posts here that assume spirituality and religion as the same thing.
In my years of undergoing spiritual discipline, I can say with experience that they have little in common. Religion is organized for the masses, it is perpetuated by religious leaders to people. Spiritualism is about an individual journey about understanding the world around them (both human and environmental), and ultimately enlightenment will come. Make no mistake though, the greatest thing about being enlightened is understanding that you truly know nothing compared to everything that is out there. Once you ABSOLUTELY accept this, you will learn exponentially faster.
