Religious Persecution

Everyone has their favorite words and phrases, and I like to say people worship money. By this I mean that they make money, hold onto money, think about money, talk about money because it is something to do, is something to form a community around.

When you are afraid of limits, death and loss, think about something without limits and you'll feel better. Money as expressed in numbers does the job. So does love, friendship, sympathy, poetry, creation in general.

People who worship money are a sad sight, wasteful of the opportunities of life. Unfortunately in some times and places, our own for example, they make up the majority.
