“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in society over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it” - Frederic Bastiat, Economic Sophisms, 1848

At the time Bastiat made this observation the gilded age was rapidly advancing. It took the turn of the 20th century muckrakers and reformers (culminating in FDR’s 1930s New Deal) to temper the gilded age “legal system and moral code” Bastiat mentions.

Many CD readers have had a front row seat to observe the kleptocratic legal system and immoral code that Saint Ron and his POTUS successors have instituted to destroy the New Deal and working class during the past three decades.

The greatest joy is that of giving . It’s a feeling we are after, something on the inside . We can never be satisfied with stuff that comes from outside.

Live simply so others can simply live .

Awaken The Species …great book by the way . Human beings are the toddlers of the universe we are in a primitive stage of development. To move forward fast we must end violence and begin to see everything as one thing .End all separations between us .

Greed is a disease of fear ,fear that there’s never enough to go around because there is more than one of us .This is simply an illusion masked as disunity and insufficiency .
Evolving beings put in place guiding principles that guide there culture.
1st Guiding Principle :We have to acknowledge the oneness and sacredness of all life We Are All One .This is based on pure observation .We can devise political,social,economic, and spiritual mechanisms which undergird ,rather than undermine ,that First Principle.
2nd Guiding Principle : There’s enough for everyone .
