Capitalism: A Love Affair

Last night my wife and I went to see the movie "Capitalism: A Love Affair" by Michael Moore. There was a time in my life many years ago when I would have hated a movie like this. Today, especially, after seeing the tip of the iceberg of corruption that plagues America’s institutions, I think every American should see this film. It’s an eye-opener even though it just scratches the surface of the depth of corruption in America’s institutions, especially in its larger corporations. For the sake of your children and grandchildren, go see this movie and then join the fight.

"You trample on the poor and force him to give you grain. Therefore, though you have built stone mansions, you will not live in them; though you have planted lush vineyards, you will not drink their wine.

For I know how many are your offenses and how great your sins. You oppress the righteous and take bribes and you deprive the poor of justice in the courts. - Amos 5:11,12

One thought on “Capitalism: A Love Affair

  • Clark Walker

    After working for a corporation for 17 years I had to leave it for fear of losing my sanity. I started my own business and am still self employed thanks to God’s Providence and my wife’s faithful prayers. If anyone has followed politics these last few years you can’t miss the tremendous influence that the wealthiest 2% of the world has had on the rest of us. Their mantra is ” if you can control their incomes , you can control their lives” and fairness isn’t in their vocabulary, only the bottom line is. People become profit units and if you don’t help them succeed in making a profit then you’re out of there.

    There is also the belief that through the democratic process we can change things for the better through the vote and I am willing to take part in that process and give my 2 cents worth regarding political matters when the opportunity presents itself but we all know that all of this is totally without merit without first going to God to seek His will in everything daily. As we see things more and more through the lens of the Bible , we see that what God expects is ” to do justly, love mercy and in so doing, walk humbly with God.”
