▪ how so many people conduct tirades against socialism / communism1 all the while describing the crimes of corrupted banking cartels and corporations — those kingpins (twin pillars) of capitalism — and then finish up their tirade by shaking their fists at those ______ socialists without ever recognizing the untenable conflation?Would Jeremiah repeat himself in our day if he took up the task of trying to open our eyes to our most dangerous enemy?
▪ how most Christians seem strangely nonchalant about Babylon as the great nemesis of Zion (vis-à-vis socialism / communism) and how the descriptions of Babylon1 do not remotely describe socialism / communism?
▪ how susceptible many of us are to believing (hook, line, and sinker) the propaganda and outright lies of corporate power and money establishments — those prime beneficiaries of capitalist and fascist systems?
▪ how most Christians seem to think that God's economy is CAPITALISM and “FREE” markets, writ large, whereas scripture and prophecy describe God's economy2 as a gift economy where equity plays a leading role? E.g.:
That you may be equal in the bonds of heavenly things, yea, and earthly things also, for the obtaining of heavenly things. For if ye are not equal in earthly things ye cannot be equal in obtaining heavenly things; For if you will that I give unto you a place in the celestial world, you must prepare yourselves by doing the things which I have commanded you and required of you. (Doctrine and Covenants | Section 78:5-7)▪ how many Christians seem to think that competition brings out the best in mankind and accounts for major advancements without ever pondering where our world would be if we had lived a philosophy of cooperation, of freely sharing gifts and ideas, of loving our neighbor as ourself?
▪ how much crime, corruption, mayhem, and murder has been justified by “democracy lovers” in the “American” fight against those ______ socialists / communists? (Read David Talbot's The Devil's Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America's Secret Government.3)
▪ how the devil, as the primeval psychopath, has always:
▪ how little we» concealed his most dangerous and evil agendas behind facades and lesser enemies?
» used patsies to take the heat for accidental exposure?
» spun money to confuse, distract, corrupt, obfuscate, etc., etc., etc.?
» lied, lied, lied about everything to gain advantage or disrupt God's plan?
» always pointed the finger of blame at God4 and others?
» used promises of power and gain to seduce gullible men and women?
» stirred up contention, division, and war for power and massive profit?
» appealed to the worst in the natural man?
» think for ourselves?▪ how unprepared we seem to speak up and act out against uncomfortable truths about favored leaders? substitute saviors? national agencies? false patriotism? our beloved economic system?
» support whistle-blowers and witnesses of “capital” crimes?5
» recognize of the innumerable deceptions6 the devil employs?
» understand Babylon as s/he was, is, and really will be?
» heed the dire warnings about secret combinations and conspiracies of those pursuing or protecting power and gain? etc.
▪ how resistant to setting aside our political, racial, cultural, economic, social, and religious differences in support and defense of a remarkable Constitution?7
▪ how slow to join in a unified work to cleanse the ubiquitous (déjà vu) Gadiantons8 of these last days?
Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not: (Old Testament | Jeremiah 5:21)-------------------------/

7. Doctrine and Covenants | Section 98:4-10 ~ And now, verily I say unto you concerning the laws of the land, it is my will that my people should observe to do all things whatsoever I command them. And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me. Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land; And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this, cometh of evil. I, the Lord God, make you free, therefore ye are free indeed; and the law also maketh you free. Nevertheless, when the wicked rule the people mourn. Wherefore, honest men and wise men should be sought for diligently, and good men and wise men ye should observe to uphold; otherwise whatsoever is less than these cometh of evil. (Bold emphasis added.)
