As the world economy begins its turn into contraction, there is a natural tendency for the reptile brain to take control. Your loss is my gain. A blood sacrifice is required. You must pay.
Fight against that as hard as you can, even if you are the object of reptilian anger. And if you feel the necessity to make ritual sacrifice of your people, your employees or country folk, think twice about what you are doing.
When the Lord comes to you on your last day and asks, “Where are the people you sacrificed to the false god of Econ?”
Will you say, “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
And the Lord will put a stain on your soul and your children’s souls that will last for all time.
Martin Luther King had different take in Loving Your Enemies, quoted at length in John Hussman’s weekly comment.
