the power placed in the hands of government."

WOW!!!, so very, very, very appropriate. Most of the current economic melt down and the credit crunch was caused directly by government (inclusive of the Fed and other power brokers behind the scene). The creating and perpetuating of myths that justify increasing the power placed in the hands of government is now the order of the day.

    In this day of the harrowing involution, in actuality, inversion of faith and values, a quote commonly ascribed to G. K. Chesterton seems salient:

    " He who will not believe in God will believe in anything."

    Not excluding the myth that government is God.

    To make the list more complete one must ad "news media" who lick the hands of their gummint masters...they are doing their bidding in pushing this covid 19 in our faces throughout the day and evening..."social distancing"...stay home, stay 6 feet apart, stay in your car, wash your hannies...you will be arrested if you don't obey your leftist "guvners"....and the one that brings up almost instant nausea with it's precious moments platitude "we're all in this together"....really? Then pray tell...why are folks being told to stay home, in DEMORAT CONTROLLED STATES under threat of arrest?
