first of all RIP Les Paul. Huge influence of mine.

Now something a guy I work with emailed to me...it is about a guy named Gary North and his website of all his works. Since 1973 he has been working on writing a verse by verse account on why the Bible MANDATES free market capitalism. Now the pdf files are monster walls of text, talkin like 700+ pages no lie. But the verse I thought of was like Matt 19 somethinorother that says its easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich man to go to heaven. And Jesus says that you should give up your riches for god instead. North explains that we should have money and god. but some of his points seem to contradict here and there. Anyway the part im talking about is about 12 pages in the Matthew pdf file (Priorities and dominion: an economic commentary on matthew) starting at 422 about the rich young ruler. Who knows if this will interest the pit? But I found it fascinating how much this guy is convinced of this stuff and how dedicated he is to it. discuss.

It's like you take vodka, and then dilute it down until it's pretty much water, but still call it vodka, and proceed to pretend to get heavily wasted off it.

Sounds like a bourgeoisie plot to keep the proletariat from throwing off the chains of economic oppression. I believe Karl Marx covered that already.

Sounds more like the opposite. The free market has a load of good logic behind it, but bull**** like this cheapens it, and makes it easy to poke fun at.

I don't even bother reading nonsense like this. He's just a brainwashed republican trying desperately to connect his faith and his selfishness.

No, no, you're thinking of some other book. We're talking about the Bible, the one with the crazy sky god.

But we digress, seeing as how this isn't the religion thread.

sky god? okay there pocahontas.

Point being, the bible can mean a lot of things depending on how you interpret it. It can even, in this case, promote capitolism.

It can also promote intolerance, hatred, elitism, sexism, homophobia, ..............
That list could go on for quite some time. Depends on how every Tom Dick and Harry in the world interprets it.
