Andrewmarkmusic: decoding the headlines
and official narratives in short, terse pithy aphorisms!

We’ll bypass the fist commandment with its inherent neuroticism and historic confabulations. 

We’ll consider that the foremost concern with any deity worth its salt is the health of a civilization. Or, put another way, the foremost priority of any God should have been the health and welfare of citizens. It shouldn’t have been that hard for God to figure out that humans will not do well if they don’t have a home or food! And I’ll add education and access to a good doctor although we’ll leave the last two bits out of this for now as it’s just too darn controversial under the ‘slave system of capitalism’ to suggest that education and medical care shouldn’t be under the rubric of a predatory financial and economic model…Yikes! 

Okey dokey, then…and onto the good parts! THOU SHALT PROVIDE EVERY CHILD UPON THE AGE OF CONSENT 500S/F OF LIVABLE LAND! Note: any of the Hebrew brethren is welcome to do the cubit conversion:) Also note, please, how the bold and italics make this commandment extraordinarily powerful! And to all the grifters out there please take note that the commandment is for livable land so no pawning off swampland to orphans! Thank you for your integrity, BTW:) 

THOU SHALT TEACH EVERY CHILD HOW TO GROW AT LEAST 25% OF ITS OWN FOOD SUPPLY! 

Any sane civilization would, of course, do this! It should be a part of all primary school education along with the study of economics. Religion should be taught to no child as it’s a form of child abuse but should be taught at the age of consent in mandatory comparative religion classes–at minimum the 101 version…

I’m going to have the audacity as a high-school drop-out to ask God to allow me to make a suggestion and I’ll not be haughty enough to ask that it be a commandment, but rather, perhaps, heavily suggested viewing. Everyone should watch Eddie Murphy’s best role in Trading Places

 which correctly understands that ANYONE can do well under the current casino model of civilization if they have access to and are able to game the system! 

If the capitalists were not so greedy and dumb they would also come to understand that the good parts of their model would only be made better if humanity’s basic needs were removed from predatory market mechanisms. But I shan’t hold my breath as the obtuseness runs deep on this hell of a rock…

Feel free to peruse my Four Pillars of a New Earth Commons for more musing on this very good idea…
