Worshiping the Golden Calf – – (money)
Beware the worship of the golden calf
(Exodus 32), which is known nowadays as
I say “beware” because now the politicians are using key words that are equivalent to the worship of money, although they clearly hide the real meaning.
You’ll see it in terms like “helping small business” or “job creation” and it usually masks the transfer of wealth from the middle class to the wealthiest Americans. The politicians have long claimed that
by helping small businesses, the wealth will trickle down to workers. This is far from the truth. Business owners keep wages low, and keep most of the profits for themselves. The push to deregulate industries was based on this false theory. They claimed that as wealthy businesses got bigger, the little guy would benefit. Instead, what we see is the current financial mess that is costing taxpayers another $700 billion. The trickle down theory is a smokescreen for greed and worship of money.
