Lunatics, Leadership And WarHello, can you spare a moment?

Lunatics and leadership

Lunatics have the same rights as the rest of us. Should they, however, have the right to fill positions of great responsibility? Jobs that come to mind are high political office, and executive positions in the civil service and the private sector.

History tells us no. Madmen wielded political power during the 1930’s and 1940’s and the world suffered immensely because of it. America attacked General Hideki Tojo with nuclear weapons before he surrendered. The Allies defeated Hitler and Mussolini with God’s help and America’s massive might.

Once again, however, we are in an era of madman political leaders. Two boy kings remind us of this whenever they talk about setting each other on fire with nuclear bombs.

We must prevent these dotards from leading us. There should be a test to determine the mental state of all politicians. In addition to this, here is the only professional field which is open to all regardless of qualifications.

God, protect us until the return of our Messiah.

Rebuilding Offers A Great OpportunityHello, can you spare a moment?

Rebuilding, improvement opportunities

Rebuilding a country after the destruction of a hurricane is hard work. It is also very costly. Once, however, government secures funding for the reconstruction effort, it can begin. Such effort also can help improve the economy and infrastructure of the country affected. This is so even as our hearts go out to those who suffered injury or lost relatives or property.

This increased construction effort generates needed economic activity in the affected country. It increases employment in the construction sector and other sectors, and increases spending power of workers generally. It also allows us the opportunity to improve or replace faulty or outdated infrastructural and other systems.

People of the countries affected should seek to benefit from this reconstruction opportunity in every way possible.

Abuse, Women And Self ImageHello, can you spare a moment?

Abuse, the end must start somewhere 

Abuse against women should never happen; but many abused women think they deserve this treatment and make no effort to escape it. Such women need to change their self view; and start the process of practically untangling themselves from this life of destruction.

Sources that can help abused women improve their self view include the Holy Bible. These women can also use literature from the Living Church of God to help them; and the church also offers counseling to them. With an improved self view they can change their attitude; and they can develop self confidence and walk away from the relationship.

Love, The Dual Sided ObjectHello, can you spare a moment?

Love, a quality and a course of action

Love is outgoing care and concern for the other person. It is both an abstract noun, and a verb. We experience the former as an objectively good, joyful inner quality. This quality results in our selfless concrete action that helps and gives to others. This genuine selfless action reveals the quality source from which it comes.

Where the quality is present we will experience it; and we will see this course of action where the quality is present.

Apprentice Or Experienced Politician?Hello, can you spare a moment?

Apprentice, of course 

Apprentice or experienced politician, which did we need? Ha! Anyways, we gave him the job and now he’s behaving like the former.

In 2016 we wanted newcomers in DC and the white house, green bananas instead of ripe ones. We tripped on narcissistic speech and behaviour. Now we’re paying the price

What’s the solution? We’ll grin and bear it until 2018. Then we’ll let Pence, Pribus and company pay the price. Finally, come 2020, we’ll send home the Trump; and banish him to the towers for good.

 Hello, can you spare a moment?

Empathy and concern for the next person

Empathy and our hearts go out to the victims of hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Often, during natural disasters we call on God to help and support us. God helps us by normalizing the weather and allowing others not affected to provide relief supplies.

In light of this, it seems we’re producing a generation of people who’re unable to sympathize and empathize. They’re thus a generation of bullies, heartless and uncaring; but what does this hold for future society and what can we do to change it?

Looking At Love To Understand Its Nature

Health, its nature and importance 

Health, is it important that we achieve this state and maintain it throughout our life. What exactly is this state, and what do we need to do to achieve it?

Perhaps we should clear the air of some mistaken ideas of this state before we attempt to understand it. Fitness, strength, power (strength & speed), or stamina and endurance do not constitute this state. Performance of certain physical feats either, do not constitute or indicate the presence of this ideal state in a person.

In this state we are totally free of all diseases; and our internal organs are functioning optimally. (Diabetes reminds us of what happens when an internal organ malfunctions.) These organs, also, are of correct size, and in the correct position. An enlarged prostate and the problems it poses remind us of the importance of the size of our internal organs.

Obesity also can place undue pressure on some internal organs, causing them to change position and shape. Those pressured organs can malfunction, causing disease. External organs such as eyes and ears too, are functioning optimally.

Yes, our attaining this state is important as it allows us to live a full and disease free life.

Health, what we must do to achieve it

The body must become acid free to be disease free. Internal organs especially need biominerals for optimal functioning. (The pancreas needs zinc, the brain needs iron etc.) Those organs absorb and benefit from biominerals only, therefore we need only take such biominerals. Non biominerals or acid based minerals will not work but will contribute to the disease state.

We must use only Alkaline based nutrition to be free of all disease, as only this will work. Acid based nutrition will create and maintain the mucus-forming acid state. This acid state will make the body disease prone and prevent it from reaching the ideal state of health. We must follow an alkaline diet to be free from all diseases.

This is an original essay written by Edward Fagan.

Shakespeare, a humble genius

Shakespeare, William, is England’s national poet. They also designate him the Bard of Avon, and the greatest writer in the English Language. The world, in addition, recognizes him as it’s greatest playwright. He, however, never attended a university; he only attended secondary school.

This man who attended secondary school only, seems to embarrass some people of a tertiary education background. They seem embarrassed that he writes better than they write. They think, perhaps, that a tertiary educated person alone should bear the awesome titles mentioned above; and they take offence at his reputation as a writer because of this.

At first, some members of the tertiary educated fraternity set out to deny that he ever did exist. The records, however, showed that he lived and died, and so this attempt to erase his existence failed.

Shakespeare, and trying to deny him credit

Next, they tried to claim his greatness for one of their own. They tried to credit his writing to tertiary educated writers such as Christopher Marlowe and Francis Bacon. This also did not work.

(Christopher Marlowe was educated at the prestigious University of Oxford. He held a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree from that university. He distinguished himself as a writer, and many knew him in this regard. Why would he hide behind Shakespeare’s name?)

(Francis Bacon attended another prestigious English institution, the University of Cambridge. Bacon held a Bachelor’s degree from this institution, and studied law at Gray’s Inn. He also fulfilled the role of statesman, and served as a parliamentarian for nearly four decades. He had no reason to hide behind Shakespeare’s name.)

They also credited other well known accomplished writers, by name, with writing Shakespeare’s works. Some of these writers, additionally, also achieved excellence in other areas. The government and society of their day held these men in high regard. They had no reason to hide behind Shakespeare’s name.

Shakespeare transcends place of  birth and upbringing

God blessed William Shakespeare with rear literary genius. He, consequently, applied his genius to write the master pieces with which we credit him. He transcends his place of birth and upbringing, and therefore belong to the whole world. This is due to his genius, and the universal nature of the masterpieces it has created.

Expressing love personally  

We can express love in a variety of ways whenever there is a need to express love. We thus can express love whenever we practise it, and practise it whenever it is welcome. When we express love, we will always do so using one or more ways of expressing such love.

We can express love in any of the various and creative ways that suit the particular relationship we are in. We should also remember that expressing love is as important as love itself, and that both are universal and perennial.

Love is a wonderful and necessary quality and practice. Humans, therefore, should possess and practise love toward each other and toward our beautiful world.

Love deserves to be expressed in the most beautiful, artistic and moral way. The esthetic quality, then, of our expression of love in any given situation can never be too high.

Some benefits of  expressing love

Practising love in a manner that reflects emotional and other forms of affection, warmth and sensitivity is important. Such practicing and displaying of love can determine the nature and extent of our response to that expression of love. Displaying love in such an appropriate tone and manner can convey a sense of peace, fraternity, joy and happiness.

Displaying love as mentioned above can bring several advantages to the recipient. It can bring delight to the hearts of recipients who might be suffering through depression, sadness and despair. When we express love, we can sometimes inspire others to cultivate a more positive view of themselves.

We can also inspire them to have a more optimistic view of their circumstances. They thus might realize the need to change for the better, their behaviour toward themselves and their circumstances.

When we express love in the manner mentioned above, and appropriately respond to it, we can experience a beneficial effect. This beneficial effect can be of a mental, emotional or other nature. Both the person who receives the expression of love, and the person who expresses love, can benefit from that expression.

Expressing love culturally and artistically

The cultures of the world reflect the importance of expressing love, in their oral, physical and other customs and traditions. These customs and traditions evolved from the love for and the importance of, expressing love. These customs and traditions and our own inclinations allow us more scope to express love in various ways. We thus enhance our capacity to express love with all of the joy, beauty and art that expressing love deserves.

The arts offer ample opportunities relevant to expressing love. They identify or create, store, retrieve and teach values and practices relevant to love and its expression. Practitioners of the literary, performing and visual arts continue to teach or remind us how we may express love beautifully.

All humans commonly share in this cultural and artistic contribution to our understanding, practice and expression of love. It thus provides an easily accessible resource which we can exploit in our effort at expressing love.

We, obviously, also have our best natural and acquired abilities relevant to expressing love. These include our verbal, physical and other abilities. How much, and the way we use this commonly-shared cultural and artistic legacy, can aid our expression of love. Our natural and acquired abilities relevant to expressing love can also help us greatly in our effort at expressing love. We, therefore, do not have any excuse for not expressing love as effectively and beautifully as we can express it.

Love, Looking At Love More Deeply

An original essay written by Edward Fagan 

Drinkers guilt and the pressure to drink  

Drinkers guilt need not be a problem for non-drinkers. Often times, however, drinkers guilt does create a problem for non-drinkers. Some drinkers experience a sense of guilt when they drink in the presence of non-drinkers. Some drinkers use this sense of guilt as a weapon against non-drinkers.

Teetotalers who politely refuse alcohol from persons who drink sometimes experience this problem. Some drinkers never give up attempting to pressure non drinkers to drink. These drinkers even think that they should force persons who naturally hate alcohol, to drink. They also think that they should force persons who can not handle alcohol to drink.

Drinkers often tell non-drinkers that they could as well drink because they are still going to die. These drinkers never tell themselves that they could as well stop drinking because they are still going to die.

Drinkers guilt, pessimism and problems

The Accident, Is It A Wakeup Call?

According to these drinkers, you could as well take unnecessary and avoidable risks of premature death because death is inevitable.

They think you could as well take unnecessary and avoidable risk of damaging your internal organs. For them, you could as well expose yourself to unnecessary and avoidable impairment of your immune system.

They also see nothing wrong with one’s spending valuable money, time and other resources on costly medical treatment. This medical treatment is only necessary and unavoidable because of health problems caused by drinking.

It seems fitting that some drinkers would always make a reference to death in discussions involving drinking and non-drinking.

It also seems fitting that some non-drinkers would always make a reference to the optimistic and positive aspects of living. They emphasize a sensible and practical life, and the resulting advantages of health and wellness.

These drinking enthusiasts, additionally, assume the right of choice between drinking and non-drinking; but they are usually unwilling to grant that same right of choice to non-drinking, health and wellness enthusiasts.
