I like it a lot. An accurate assessment / observation. 

Mike, Norwalk

I've given my personal experience here in many ways - a multiple of times. Early, as a youth, I had a Pastor that told me not to believe him or anyone concerning any extra human experience of dogma — find out for myself. Later, another minister told me when I had a question, take it to the Lord — (stay in an attitude of prayer, be on my knees when possible, be open and attempt to exercise my communication in faith). AND, when I got a favorable answer, things turning out like I felt and thought they would, remember everything about what I thought, how I felt and attempt to discern all the events. The next day — at my next dilemma, do everything again. And then, when nothing came out like I thought or expected, analyze everything in detail once again. The minister then said in effect, if I do that daily, in a few years, I would begin to recognize the Spirit of God which differed from emotion, a sensorial of peer / societal thoughts, a day to day life style and feelings associated to a false sense of carnal reasoning and expectations. The minister said the current church is more living by emotion and expectations than by the spirit. Once our Creator's presence is recognized by eternal knowledge, love and truth will emanate from us while truth will set us free.

     Waffler, thank you for the honorable mention. But if you ever see this, can you give the exact site where Jesus said people should pay tithes and taxes in the same sentence. Waffler, you being a ranking tax collector - enslaving by the 2nd plank of the communist manifesto, you are exactly replicating the Pharisees and Herodians position in Mark 12:13-17; “And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words. And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Cæsar, or not? Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why atempt ye me? bring me a denarius, that I may see it. And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Cæsar’s. And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Cæsar the things that are Cæsar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.”

     Waffler, the question to catch Jesus in His words was: “Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar or not?” Understanding the terms gives clarity to Jesus’ response. First, “lawful”, references the common law of Israel where it was/is only lawful to give unto YHWH (Jesus being YHWH incarnate). The term “legal” may be governmentally applied even when it is unlawful (slight of words / trick question). Second, “Caesar”, as a title to position, carried every designation that would apply to YHWH (god, savior, redeemer, etc., plus conqueror, slave master, owner). Caesar was not Jesus’s god or owner ! ! ! Thus it was not lawful to pay such tribute to Caesar but rather legal under Roman sword. Plus, under Roman law at the time, ministers / Rabbis / Pharisees / Herodians, etc. were exempt from paying taxes. Third, “tribute” was NOT a simple tax - while also, there were many types of taxes. Tribute was a designation that the owned property, the lower than slave was to offer (as a religious sacrament) to his god and master part of his being (money, wife, child, etc.) Jesus ask for a denarius on purpose, as it was the normal pay for a laborer’s full day. Jesus’s answer mystified the tricksters, If Caesar be your god and master, render tribute unto him; if the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel be your god, pay unto Him what you will. Waffler, you dis-information and misdirection did NOT serve the cause of truth.

Sillik, lololol / hahahaha  you play the game of lies in promoting socialism  you lose

Mike, Norwalk

The "A" from Reston; I agree with your general premise  BUT!  "better", is WAY to subjective. The lover of truth, individual sovereignty, inalienable rights, liberty, justice, responsibility of self and the laws of nature and of nature's God has a very  VERY!  different perception of "better" than does a socialist, otherwise collectivist or patron of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land.

Mike, Norwalk

I like it a lot ! Absolutely! Socialism and other collectivist religions advance lies antithetical to the above truth. Christianity (with an extra human experience as its teacher) and, Buddhism (with no extra human experience as its source of truth) have come to the same accurate standard of truth.

Mike, Norwalk

Lutz, far right and far left of what? The measuring scale you here reference is, “socialism”. Your entire mental and literary efforts describe differing administrations and policies of various socialist endeavors.

By definition, socialism is any of various theories, philosophies or systems of social organization in which property, religion, the means of production and distributing of goods is/are owned by a collective or, by a centralized government. Fascism rigidly follows and fulfills all socialism’s elements (corporatism - as coined by Mussolini; all corporations are legal extensions of the State {I can go into deeper legalities if you wish}). Actions speak louder than words. By example. “National Socialism is a religion. All we lack is a religious genius capable of uprooting outmoded religious practices and putting new ones in their place. We lack traditions and ritual. One day soon National Socialism will be the religion of all Germans. My Party is my church, and I believe I serve the Lord best if I do his will, and liberate my oppressed people from the fetters of slavery. That is my gospel.” (Joseph Goebbels) - [Goebbels said so and he should know]. The NAZI (National Socialist’s German Worker’s Party) adaptation of Mussolini’s “fascism” (a picturesque illustration, meaning, a bundle of sticks, a reference to collectivism and centralized government) was simply a different vision of socialism’s adaptation. Hitler’s fascism / socialism also adopted much from America’s Democratic Party.

Sillik, the sound association or word "people" is defined as an aggregate of single genus Homo sapiens, or a specific primate variant “human”. Please redefine the term "people" so that we may understand your status and vision use. Please enlighten us as to your school of glory that we may see how a highly qualified station may be earned (what are the steps?).

Mike, Norwalk

Okay, sometimes. I can see that sequential genealogy. Possibly 5 stars in a narrowly focused expression of a specific chain of events. A restless discontent can also lead to chaotic destruction.

Mike, Norwalk

Sillik, "social responsibility"? ? ? Now, there is a vague and shallow nonsquitur without definable terms. Where once individual's responsibly prepared for retirement and other needs (including family consideration), malfeasant gods (government) now steal the laborer's fruits by lies and guns - only to keep the masses poor and families in chaos. By your socialist comments, it is becoming very obvious that poverty, pain and chaos are your true measurement of a man's success.

Editor, the copy and paste oopsed  probably my side? Formatting  was wrong while also, I had mentioned I was shaking my head in agreement with Archer's lil diddly (really weird).

Mike, Norwalk

Freedom is: “The state of being free; liberty; self determination:” (Black’s Law Dictionary 1st Edition);  “the power or liberty to order one's own actions” (Colins English Dictionary); “The ability to act at liberty.” (Webster’s Dictionary)

I'm not quite sure how to rate this  too many variables. Sillik doesn't like definitions while, hits on a head shaking in agreement lil didly.

Liberty is: “The power of acting as one thinks fit, without any restraint or control, except from the laws of nature.” (Bouvier’s Law Dictionary) 

Liberty is the “exemption from extraneous control.  The power of the will, in its moral freedom, to follow the dictates of its unrestricted choice, and to direct the external acts of the individual without restraint, coercion, or control from other persons.  

Liberty is the right which nature gives to all mankind of disposing of their persons and property after the manner they judge most consistent with their happiness, on condition of their acting within the limits of the law of nature, and so as not to interfere with an equal exercise of the same rights by other men.” (Black’s Law Dictionary 1st ed.).

Clarifying original fact, natural law intent, and de jure jurisprudence: “Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.” (Thomas Jefferson)

“The Natural Liberty of Man is to be free from any Superior Power on Earth, and not to be under the Will or Legislative Authority of Man, but to have only the Law of Nature for his Rule.” (John Locke - second most quoted source for creation of the Constitution)

“Personal liberty, or the Right to enjoyment of life and liberty, is one of the fundamental or natural Rights, which has been protected by its inclusion as a guarantee in the various constitutions, which is not derived from, or dependent on, the U.S. Constitution, which may not be submitted to a vote and may not depend on the outcome of an election. It is one of the most sacred and valuable Rights, as sacred as the Right to private property ⋯ and is regarded as inalienable.” (16 C.J.S., Constitutional Law, Sect.202, p.987).

Liberty, under “the laws of nature and of nature’s God” (Declaration of Independence) – natural law, is the state of exercising all inalienable rights. “All men are created equally free and independent, and have certain inherent rights, of which they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; among which are the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing the obtaining of happiness and safety.” (George Mason)

The road to hell is paved with good intensions (socialism, compelled compliance, government license, victimless crimes and larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, Social Security, police state confiscations, perfected allodium / absolute ownership, etc.)). The "who" Mao, Marx, Lenin, Hitler and other well intentioned socialists is/are replete with wrong ! ! !

Mike, Norwalk

The theocratic collective's extremely well organized tyranny on the masses is well illustrated through the sheeple's acceptance of compelled compliance, government's licences, victimless crimes. larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, Social Security, government confiscations, non-allowance of perfected allodium / absolute ownership) and non-allowance of the "the laws of nature and of nature's God" (Declaration of Independence), inalienable rights or liberty. Though a very well singly organized person (individual or in concert) may effectuate certain despotic actions, it is the single sovereign (individually and in concert) denying personally the despotic enslavement of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land that will effectuate the greatest that man's nobility has to offer.

Mike, Norwalk

Sillik, because it seems you hold life sacred, would you happen to be an active patron of the god Moloch?

Mike, Norwalk

Sillik, maybe I can help you get over your Marxist wolf pack propaganda and fallacious dogma. The “Consumer” / “Producer” relationship is but a small segment of history. As a socialist, it is the norm / clear that you make up definitions to words to fit your theocratic dogma - BUT ! ! ! - a “consumer” is a buyer or vendee that acquires goods or services for direct use or ownership rather than, for resale or use in production and manufacturing. The consumer (individual - sentient, legal, some times enjoyably agreeable / some times antagonistic, etc.) typically purchases products at an accepted price (sometimes inexpensive, some times reasonable, some times at great cost {like, by socialism’s induced inflation}, some times by necessity, sometimes by desire, etc.). Sillik, by definition (in all languages, - civil / legal, etc.) the “consumer” does NOT sell products (being productive or destructive to a social setting is not part of any definition or fit whatsoever within a realm of association concerning your word salad).

A “producer’s” creative vision may or may not fall within a “consumer’s” desire or need. I once produced a product for consumer’s use that was the highest quality, most versatile, etc. in a specific industry. Some consumers would pay the extra cost for the best because it fit within their circumstances, desires or needs. Your word salad’s erroneous attempt to redefine and corral an entire relationship was a lie from inception.

(-; you have to be carful of characters named Eric, they might just come up with some absolutes ;-) Thank you for each and every, any and all ! ! !

Mike, Norwalk

Waffler, if the 2nd plank of the communist manifesto were only one ounce of .9999 pure silver per year, it would still constitute an enslaving theft. Your misdirection, off topic, red herring when applied to We The People's "republican form of government" (Article IV Section 4, U.S. Constitution), it emphasizes the accuracy of Franklin's here quote. From the de jure States united's inception, such heinous larceny was recognized as a violation of each and every individual sovereign (We The People). 

Mike, Norwalk

Socialism is a system that promotes spying and kills creativity. I salute you Sillik on your most high and holy day April, 1. I see you are practicing one of your god's: "a lie told often becomes the truth" (Lenin)

Mike, Norwalk

Morals and ethics are arbitrary without a finite standard.(each to their own). Only the individual can create (whether individually or in concert  such as birth) Socialism is a destructive system deriving from a pack mentality.

Mike, Norwalk

Of course you are struggling! Love, faith, individual sovereignty, inalienable rights and liberty at the laws of nature and of nature's God holds within a vision and reality to create; socialism, the antagonist thereto, is the wolf pack's ability to control and destroy.

Mike, Norwalk

Sillik, you have many followers of your theocratic dribble, Marx, Stallin, Hitler, Mao, etc. In fact, your statement here falls directly in line with "socialism's" dogma: "A lie told often enough becomes the truth." (Lenin)

Mike, Norwalk

Sillik, I see you are consistent, even as I reply here on your most holy high day - April 1. (-:, (-:, (-; I salute you on your most holy high day ;-). ;-), ;-). This is SO, SO appropriate on your most holy high day - what one (1) SINGLE “WORD” (as would be interpreted and accepted by the whole world {individually and in concert} - besides you personally, of course) describes an economic, political and religious system that uniquely ends in a reality of destruction, pain and death. Such system, as is recognized as the collective’s centralized ownership of all property, is intolerant of all other religions, is the centralized god and controller of the production and distribution of goods, and presents a facade of - it is good for you - economic system (whether in its own name, in the name of an approved legal person {corporations, LLCs, etc.}, or otherwise). What is the one (1) SINGLE “WORD”?

Mike, Norwalk

I'm not quite sure how to rate the accuracy of the quote  5 stars for the accuracy or a thumbs down for man's inhumanity to man. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land is guilty of many / MANY assassinations for theocratical, winning court cases against the IRS, financial and other assorted reasons. A blood sport by the theocracy's local standing army (police) have also taken many lives (by example: a young / small black boy {reported to be 14?} was shot in the back several times while running away {he having harmed no one}). The U.S. has, up to date, been spared the wholesale slaughter that certain Asian, European and other demonic regimes of theocratic socialism have experienced.
