Human rights vs frac-sand profits

Let’s invent a respect-for-all-life method to distribute profits in return for our production.

Capitalism’s unfettered marketplace wealth distribution system excludes love of God and neighbor. It features long-established, almost invisible, grossly discriminatory competition against each other to “find the value of our production.” No one is happy with it. The rich want more and the poor want enough to live.

The richest five percent of Americans controlled 72 percent of the nation’s wealth in 2011. They can legally bribe our government. The next 15 percent had 21 percent, so the poorest 80 percent kept only seven percent.

As long as our local, state, and/or national governments allow the sand mining industry and its effects to violate our human rights in favor of profits for a few, we are clearly NOT “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

So, how can so few continue to dominate most of us? Damage control. They lead us into fighting right and left against each other to outlaw, regulate, or modify the horrible evidence that unfettered free-market-capitalism is a complete failure. WE sidetrack our love-power with OUR damage control habit, so WE lose. Capitalism remains.

But, Jesus told us to replace the way of the world with the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in Heaven. Jesus told us to unite to put our love into action in a non-judgmental, humble and forgiving manner. The power of united love-in-action is more than adequate to accomplish our assignment. The frac sand industry, abortion, poverty wages, and a lot more horrors are evidence that capitalists are leading the wrong way. When we stop following capitalists, they won’t be our leaders!
