The Highest Evil

By Dean

P olitical Evil is the Highest Evil
Using the People's most cherished Values
To bamboozle them into supporting the wealthy 

Patriotism and Honor are only psychological hooks
To sound-byters who know how to control the masses
Those doctors of mind control and media manipulation

The Work Ethic is a convenient charade to them
Who believe that only "the munks" must work
Since they themselves are the privileged  

Their higher power is money
Their might is money
Their culture is a money cult  

The American Republican elites
Know no limit to their avarice
Willing even to sell our Great Nation
To mammon

"No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." {Matt 6:19-24 RSV}

As for the rich in this world, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on uncertain riches but on God who richly furnishes us with everything to enjoy.  They are to do good, to be rich in good deeds, be liberal and generous, thus laying up for themselves a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life which is life indeed. {1 Tim 6:17-18 RSV}
