    10 Commandments of our true religion

    Never had an original thought in my life...but tonight I have had thoughts on the state of things and am putting them together in this way....apologies to all those that thought any of these thoughts first....

    I have googled Mt Sinai, and carried these ideas of the ten commandments of our one true, shared religion, almighty Capitalism--whose Vatican is the USA--down from those images I viewed on the internet (in my brain, not literally):

    1. Thou shalt maximize shareholder wealth, NO OTHER PURPOSE SHALL COME BEFORE THIS
    2. Making yourself as much of an idol as you can is the best way to serve your one true purpose, you can capitalize off your brand like nothing else
    3. NEVER QUESTION OR CRITICIZE CAPITALISM, or the two most sacred of commandments, taking the name of the almight ECONOMY in vain is blasphemy
    4. Remember to keep our Lord's sabbath holy, which is every day. Keeping it holy means working as hard you possibly can, without question or complaint
    5. Thou shalt not kill, unless it is the enemies of this empire who would like to keep their own resources and sovereignty...and if you cannot kill them, enslave them
    6. Thou shall not commit adultery, marriage is ownership contract that must be honored, lest ye be penalized with the unholy damnation of alimony and child support
    7. Thou shall not steal, and if this conflicts from commandment #1, change the laws so you are not REALLY stealing.
    8. Thou shall not lie....just kidding, the key to EVERYTHING is lying your face off. How can you PROFIT without it? Honor C1.
    9. Thou shall not covet your neighbor's wife, if he gained ownership over her, you must respect that and control your thoughts.
    10. Thou shall not covet covet your neighbor's goods, that would indicate you're broker than him. Pretend you have more as your true worth is only other's perception

    ....so it is written, so it has been (for as long as I can remember). Hallelujah, god bless us everyone, gimme that golden ticket 💜
    What is the purpose of your presence?

    I would also like to copy this post of mine from the "World War Three" thread...





    The USA is itself a crypto-fascist nation, as I've already stated many times, but apparently, nobody wants to take that seriously because of the glamorous image of the USA sold in the media and via Hollywood.

    The 14 Characteristics of Fascism

    by Lawrence Britt


    Free Inquiry Magazine, 2003


    Political scientist Dr. Lawrence Britt recently wrote an article about fascism ("Fascism Anyone?," Free Inquiry, Spring 2003, page 20). Studying the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia), and Pinochet (Chile), Dr. Britt found they all had 14 elements in common. He calls these the identifying characteristics of fascism. The excerpt is in accordance with the magazine's policy.

    The 14 characteristics are:


    01. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism

    Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.


    02. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights

    Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.


    03. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause

    The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial, ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists; terrorists; etc.


    04. Supremacy of the Military

    Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.


    05. Rampant Sexism

    The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Opposition to abortion is high, as is homophobia and anti-gay legislation and national policy.


    06. Controlled Mass Media

    Sometimes the media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.


    07. Obsession with National Security

    Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.


    08. Religion and Government are Intertwined

    Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.


    09. Corporate Power is Protected

    The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.


    10. Labor Power is Suppressed

    Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.


    11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts

    Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts is openly attacked, and governments often refuse to fund the arts.


    12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment

    Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.


    13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption

    Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.


    14. Fraudulent Elections

    Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

    I would very much like to see anyone here make an attempt at refuting that all of the above is applicable to the USA as a nation, and to US American culture itself.
