The Brahman principle and concept of all that is good and virtuous and holy whatever that means.
The concept of goodness and righteousness and virtue
the concept of greed, wealth and material at all cost, at any cost:
the sacredness of life being totally irrelevant to many greedy monsters not even a remote concern in their dark evil minds.
And yes that kind of mind has to be called dark and evil no matter what absolute morality says or doesn’t say and no matter what amorality anonymous could think.
Because if there is ONE thing that is sacred and all that we have, it is our life, our breath. And to lose it because some asshole needs more than the billions he already has and never will be able to spend anyway is just WRONG. Or simply lose it because my life was estimated cheaper than the money spent to repair a deadly error and so much more twisted plots that count souls in dollar $ign$ like being worried about my lack of production, being much more concerned about my showing to work than any personal situation of mine no matter what it is.
Not seeing me or any person but as nothing but a mean to more personal wealth and you would be utterly surprised to really know who fits in that group.
How many people are using someone’s misery to enlarge their personal fortune?
How many are robbing the poor by selling them a bogus dream, preying on their desire to get better and out of their misery?
This can be done and IS done in so many ways.
Only Humans can be that crafty and deceitful and murderous.
I can’t imagine any other animal elevated to that kind of corruption. I mean it is a jungle out there but our jungle is very refined and quite devious and the most surprisingly to me is that pillars of society are the biggest culprits.
Back in the days it was the Pharisees that were the culprits.
Luk 16:14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.
Luk 16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
But today we have Pharisees in so many forms:
religious leaders, politicians,
corporate leaders (Pharisees AND psychopaths, that is such a good mix),
celebrities of all kinds.
We do tend to worship the rich in a very unhealthy way.
In a sense, serving Mammon means one is greedy, or one who has wealth far in excess of one’s needs. Yet Western Culture remains somewhat obsessed with those who acquire a great deal of wealth. Forbes magazine’s wealthiest people in the world list catches quite a lot of attention, as do shows like Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.
Even though the word mammon is only mentioned 4 times in the NT (compared the the word theos 1344 times) the principle and that’s all what mammon is, a principle, no god or demon here, the principle has grown exponentially along with the population boom since the industrial age.
How many have been killed, sacrificed building a future for some entrepreneur?
“Once upon a time in the west” comes to mind here along with the saying about chinamen and railways. Industrial security is still being a very tender subject and medieval conditions of work are eons from enlightenment. The Satanic Mills not being from a very distant past are only one of the many symptoms of the unquenchable blood thirst of mammon.
Seeing it is one thing and probably the only satisfaction. I think sometimes that the demolition of lies and illusions is the only satisfaction, to see the world as it is, to discern a minuscule part of the Truth.
Doing something about it seems to me though to be totally futile if not impossible.
One has really no idea of the tremendous magnitude of the evil forces in power.
Don Quixotes are quickly executed, crucified, nullified, renditioned or just disappear.
Julian Assange is next in line.
You do not bring light in the darkness but at the cost of your life.
Darkness does not play by the rules, has no rules.
Life is totally irrelevant to them:
Gordon Gekko: When I get a hold of the son of a bitch who leaked this, I'm gonna tear his eyeballs out and I'm gonna suck his fucking skull.
The good old Chaos vs Order battle.
But even though some old French wacko thought the epitomy of evil was British way back then J
Later occultist writings such as De Plancy's Dictionnaire Infernal describe Mammon as Hell's ambassador to England.
For Thomas Carlyle in Past and Present, the 'Gospel of Mammonism' became simply a metaphoric personification for the materialist spirit of the nineteenth century.
it seems today that it just has another name.
Gordon Gekko: The point is ladies and gentlemen that greed, for lack of a better word, is good.
Greed for lack of a better word is GOOD. Wall Street!
American Intere$t$ is always number one in their meddling and warmongering.
Greed for all I know is a blood thirsty beast that is never ever satisfied like death, and fire, and the desert and the barren woman.
Pro 30:14 Don't be greedy, merciless and cruel as wolves, Tearing into the poor and feasting on them, shredding the needy to pieces only to discard them.
Pro 30:15 A leech has twin daughters named "Gimme" and "Gimme more." Three things are never satisfied, no, there are four that never say, "That's enough, thank you!"—
Pro 30:16 hell, a barren womb, a parched land, a forest fire.
Certainly not living out of this principle
Pro 30:8 Banish lies from my lips and liars from my presence. Give me enough food to live on, neither too much nor too little.
Diss the book all you want these remain good principles.
I shall never be ashamed of citing a bad author if the line is good. Seneca
None of this will ever stop this mammonistic spiral we are going down, this mammonish nose dive but still as I said it is nice and good to have discernment and some sort of sense left on this crazy planet.
BOTTOM LINE IS AS CLICHE AS IT SOUNDS and much forgotten apparently at so many levels
LIFE IS PRICELESS!!!
I came into this world with nothing and so far I still have most of it.
Now let me finish with my sick old joke. J
A rich man once asked the Lord to let him take some of his possessions to Heaven. The Lord finally allowed him to take one suitcase. The man decided to fill the suitcase with gold. When he got to the gates, Peter told him he couldn't take anything with him. The man protested that the Lord told him he could bring one suitcase. Peter said, "Show me what you brought." The man opened the suitcase and showed Peter the gold.
And Peter said, "PAVEMENT?"
