1 Percent Rich Care More About Possessions Than Global Extinction Event, Plus 99 Percent Of People Suffering From High Medical Bills, Unemployment, Poverty, Homelessness - NotreDame Cathedral Versus Grenfel High Rise Tower Fire - US Sinking Into Full Blown Fascism 

What would Jesus say if he came back right after the Cathedral fire, when 1 billion is raised to rebuild it in just a couple of days?

What would he say about this huge building if he was here today, and saw all of this money?


ONE LESSON FROM THE CATHEDRAL FIRE IS THAT THIS IS THE AGE OF TRANSFORMATION, CATASTROPHIC CHANGES, AND LOSS OF GLACIERS, ICE CAPS, FORESTS, 37 SPECIES PER DAY, BUT MASS MEDIA IGNORES ALL OF THIS; WHY IS THAT?


What took over 100 years to build was taken down in a couple hours. 

Wikipedia; "Notre-Dame de Paris (/ˌnɒtrə ˈdɑːm, ˌnoʊtrə ˈdeɪm, ˌnoʊtrə ˈdɑːm/;[4][5][6] French: [nɔtʁə dam də paʁi] (listen); meaning "Our Lady of Paris"), often referred to simply as Notre-Dame,[a] is a medieval Catholic cathedral on the Île de la Cité in the 4th arrondissement of Paris, France. The cathedral is consecrated to the Virgin Mary and considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. Its innovative use of the rib vault and flying buttress, its enormous and colourful rose windows, and the naturalism and abundance of its sculptural decoration set it apart from the earlier Romanesque style.[7]

The cathedral was begun in 1160 under Bishop Maurice de Sully and was largely complete by 1260, though it was modified frequently in the following centuries. In the 1790s, Notre-Dame suffered desecration during the French Revolution; much of its religious imagery was damaged or destroyed. In 1804, the cathedral was the site of the Coronation of Napoleon I as Emperor of France, and witnessed the baptism of Henri, Count of Chambordin 1821 and the funerals of several presidents of the Third French Republic.


16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg wants the world to come together to save the planet like we did for #NotreDame. This is powerful.

HYPER FOCUSING ON THE MOTE IN THE EYE, WHILE IGNORING THE LOG STICKING OUT OF THE OTHER EYE, MAKING THE WHOLE WORLD BLIND

Why is the mass media hyper focusing on tabloid type of news such as the cathedral fire, while ignoring the global extinction event happening right before our eyes?

WHAT KINDS OF STORIES DOES THE MASS MEDIA NEWS COVER? WHY NOT THE MOSQUE FIRE? WHY ONLY A CHRISTIAN CATHEDRAL?

Why is the mass media hyper focusing on tabloid type of news such as the cathedral fire, while ignoring other events, of equal importance?

WHAT LESSONS CAN BE LEARNED FROM THE 1 BILLION PROMISED TO REBUILD SO FAR? 


$1 billion has already been given to help rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral: report | TheHill
Donations for the restoration of Notre Dame Cathedral after it was severely damaged by a fire Monday are already nearing $1 billion, according to The Associated Press.

In less than two days, contributions have reached 880 million euros, or $995 million, according to presidential cultural heritage envoy Stephane Bern. The French government is in the process of establishing a special office to handle larger donations, according to the AP.

TRUMP AND HIS ALLEGED CHRISTIAN EXTREME RIGHT WING FUNDAMENTALIST EVANGELICALS PROMISE TO HELP FRANCE WITH CHRISTIAN CATHEDRAL, BUT REFUSES TO HELP FLINT MICHIGAN AND PUERTO RICO

What is the price of selling one's soul?

Selling the Soul of Franklin Graham
And then one day, these professed men of God, find themselves campaigning for a predator in Alabama, disputing the value of black lives, celebrating the expulsion of refugees, vilifying an entire religious tradition, justifying the separation of families, going to battle for the NRA, passionately defending an endless parade of lies from a President—and all the while still imagining themselves fully righteous.

These are such days for men like Franklin Graham and Jerry Falwell Jr, and for those who emulate them. This is how far they have drifted, and it’s going to be almost impossible for them to make their way back, because to do that, they would have to do something they have proven unwilling or unable to do: own their mistakes, admit their failings, cop to their poor alliances, and confess their present sins in the ascension of this President.


These men need Jesus.
They need repentance.
They need to have the scales fall from their eyes, and to see accurately the horrors they’ve manufactured against so many people made in the image of God

They need to own and confess the ways they’ve denied Jesus, the millions of millstones they’ve tied around the necks of their followers.

They need to lament becoming beholden to Donald Trump and the Republican Party and Fox News, and to the supremacists and bigots who now compromise the lion’s share of their ever-shrinking but increasingly militant white base.



Trump is promoting the 1 percent, huge corporations and billionaires, instead of helping the 99 percent. The biggest transfer of wealth in the history of humanity is happening right now, under Trump. The transfer is going from the 99 percent to the 1 percent, via fascist policies that are undermining the rule of law, freedom, democracy and the will of the people. 

DOES THE AVERAGE US CITIZEN REALIZE HOW DEEPLY THE COUNTRY HAS SUNK INTO FACISM? 





As the US sinks into full blown fascism, most people are totally and completely unaware of it, thanks to a complicit mass media, which refuses to use the F word, and which has sold it's soul for PROFIT.

Do Americans Know How Much Trouble They’re In? – Eudaimonia and Co
When a society has a leader who claims to not just be above the law — but to be the law — then such a society cannot be a democracy, or a constitutional republic, a res publica, the “public affair” of the classical Greeks. When a leader has absolute power, then rights cannot be said to exist, and there is no point to voting, representation, or legislation. If the will of the people, or their representatives, can be abrogated at any time, by a leader who can “pardon” anyone absolutely for anything, beginning with himself, then democracy ceases to matter in any way whatsoever — that is how you get to “90% of people vote for Putin!”, every single election.
















Now, I am sure that you have had similar thoughts. But I want you to really understand it. When a society crosses this line, there is usually no going back. When Caesar crossed the Rubicon, Rome was finished. When the Sun King declared “l’etat, c’est moi”, “I am the state”, the French ancien regime was finished — the revolution was a foregone conclusion. And the same is true in America. If this line is crossed, there is likely to be no way back to democracy.

But the same is true of Senators who cannot “access” a “detainment center” — an altogether too-polite euphemism for a concentration camp, a place where people, children in this case, are literally concentrated, with no recourse or rights, simply vanished and disappeared into thin air, into a black hole. That is the point of a concentration camp — to create a black hole that is impossible for anyone to see into, for press, intellectuals, citizens, or even leaders.

What is really happening here? Democratic representation is being made impotent — visibly and in public, so everyone can see just how powerless it is against authoritarianism. Authoritarians are demonstrating their absolute power to destroy the daily workings of democracy. Think about it: mere nobodies, flunkies, “guards”, call the police, who tell Senators, they must leave. They are able to render the most powerful people in society — Senators — utterly, totally, laughably impotent. But the Senators are the people’s most powerful representatives, and if they cannot gain access to children hidden away in dungeons, then who can? No one. But that is precisely the point. It is a form of intimidation. Meant to create a society governed by fear, anxiety, impotence, the expectation of powerlessness — not one governed by law, order, and a democratic distribution of power.

Trump is working intentionally on a global level, to install fascism all around the world. He is best friends and allies with the worst fascist governments all around the world, such as Communist China/Vietnam, Russia, Saudi Arabia, France, Japan, and others. Just as fascist leaders of Nazi Germany, Italy and Japan combined forces in the lead up to World War II, so it is happening now. Fascism did not lose after WWII, it just morphed and adapted.

Trump now almost totally controls the Republican Party, Supreme Court, the Senate, the White House, the Intelligence Agencies, the Justice Dept, the Congress via an avalanche of corporate money. He 'owns' just about all of the huge corporations plus billionaires, who think that he is doing a fabulous job, and they all want him to be reelected. He also controls most fundamental evangelical Christians who believe he is God in the flesh and want him to be King for life. He is forcing out anyone in government who opposes him using various means. His goal is to abolish all elections and be King for life, just as it happened in Communist China. 

What is left to save the Republic? A few comedians are standing up against him. A few mass media outlets oppose him, but most are fine with him controlling everything, because their corporate owners benefit directly from his policies, even as they hurt the 99 percent. A Republic is easy to lose, and it is in the process of being lost completely and totally, to a fascist government, controlled in the same way that Putin took over as a fascist in Russia. 

If voters are allowed to vote in 2020, and the vote count has not been totally rigged by then, there is still a chance, a slim chance to vote out those supporting and enabling fascism. Who needs to be voted out? 

Vote out anyone who supports huge corporations, and who has sold their soul for corporate money. As corporate money bribes and corrupts politicians, democracy by the people is lost, and fascism is installed.
