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

Some thoughts in 2019 which I’ll add here. The move towards post-secularism and movements like post-modern conservatism conveniently omit or cherrypick from religious ideology. So we get undue focus on bad ideas like the ‘chosen people’ while dismissing good ideas like the sabbath and the Jubilee (debt resetting). Christians focus on abortion or homosexuality while ignoring the vast swaths of the homeless in their communities while also embracing usurious capitalism. If this era could be summed up in a few words I’d call it a lack of common sense. My Golden Rule economics is simply addressing the foundations of what any healthy economy would look like: basic needs would not be open to predatorial actions and actors. A healthy education system would focus through to grade 12 on making sure everyone learns how to take care of themselves via knowledge of how to grow food and build shelters and that land would be reopened to intelligent homesteading. 


 By now you could be sensing a problem: if higher dimensions of existence are real; or, at the very least, if more advanced evolutionary beings exist in this 4-D universe, and they exist via voluntary associations, then why are we practicing and normalizing things like unnecessary exploitation and coercion which go against our long-term best interests? This conditioning has effectively made us prisoners! We’ll get into who the wardens are as we move along in this series.

A note here for all the materialists: even if you’re correct and humans end up being an inconsequential cosmic fluke I would still argue that the Golden Rule, as understood in these posts, is still relevant and humanities best way forward as far as survival of the species and survival of life in general on this planet. The rest of this series will explore what a Golden Rule economy would look like.

In my last post, I touched on the desert mid-east northern hemisphere solar origins of Judaism and I’ll briefly touch on the Solar aspect of Christianity here. I should mention first, though, that the literal historicity of these myths is dubious at best and non-existent at worst. What’s a fact though is that the warring tribes within Judaism by the first century A.D. had every reason to replace a physical temple with a symbolic one. And this appears to be exactly what happened: the Judaic solar tradition simply got renewed in the form of Christendom–and also Islam which would succeed in formalizing a totalizing theocratic method of control which had its roots in Babylon, and we’ll touch on that in the next post. The main point is that the State control of religious experience which began in Babylon continued within the Roman Empire and the solar (and lunar) aspects of these religions are unmistakable. So, December 25th is the day the sun rises from 3-days of darkness.

The rest of this series will explore the reasons why having an economic system premised on unnecessary exploitation and coercion (almost always maintained by force and violence) was and always will be a bad idea–in fact, a very bad idea!
