Isn't it obvious?
Jesus Christ didn't say, "before I heal you, you need to pay me, and I need to see proof of insurance."
I am reminded of the Mark of the Beast, 666, and how this is a metaphor for the buying and selling of human life. Only $9.99. The Author of the Book of Revelations writes in the manner of a prophetic dream. Symbols are metaphors, and the mark of the beast symbolizes the worst kind of enslavement. My Social Security Number is certainly the mark of a beast. I'm still trying to figure out which one.
Capitalism is an -ism, which is in effect a belief system, like Mormonism, Catholicism, Mysticism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, etc. Capitalism is the religion of wealth. Wall Street is it's Holy City. Like any -ism, Capitalism originates in the human imagination, and it seeks to control human society and consciousness.
In Capitalism, advertising propaganda abounds. What is less obvious to the distracted eye are the low wages of the people that sell the vitally nonessential material prejunk. I call it prejunk because although these things start off fancy, trendy, pricey, and new, after the passage of five to ten years, the new stuff becomes what it was ontologically destined to be. Junk. But, hard working people continue to spend their survival tokens on this prejunk in attempts to fill the hole in their lives created by the need for more stuff. Most call this the progress of technology, which it might be, but it sure does create a lot of $hit. And mono-cultural consumer zombies.
All the wars since World War II have been fought in the name of Capitalism. Back in the day, we had our arch nemesis, the Communists, who represented the antithesis of capitalism. Many skirmishes were fought, many lives lost. But thanks to that great patriarch Ronald Reagan, the Capitalists won and paved the way for Free Markets to take over the world. Then, all of a sudden, the Terrorists attacked (they don't like Capitalism either). America was plunged into another decade of war so that we could spread Free Markets to consume the governments of Middle Eastern shepherds (they stand between us and the oil beneath their dirt poor feet).
Speaking of poor and hungry people, imagine how much food we could provide if the $400 billion a year that Americans spend on the military went to feeding and providing medicine to the poor instead? I know, these are wussy thoughts that don't reflect the animalistic and sometimes violent requirements of modern security. The last perfect hippie that preached love and fed the poor without charging money was executed on a cross, or so they say.
Now, I'm not saying Capitalism doesn't have its upsides (for I am well aware of these).
I'm just saying, if there ever was the perfect antichrist, Capitalism is it. Now whether or not I actually believe this is another thing...
