We have, then, the introduction of'scarcity' into the theory of economic crises in a Marxist, not a neo-Malthusian, way. At issue is not the relation between food production and population, nor a technologically mediated version of the same relation, but instead a reading of how capitalism relies upon nature to secure its profits and how, furthermore, in the process of accumulation, it degrades its own conditions. Here O'Connor proposes that capitalism under produces the failure to maintain the conditions of production is precisely a feature of capitalist underdevelopment. Given that development is uneven, any socialist transformation of capitalist economic forces and relations will also have to attend to the ways in which environmental clean-up, supportive family life and good education, and the costs of traffic congestion and urban degradation - to give a few examples - all require urgent attention.
Whereas attempts by the Catholic Church to clean up its retail operations were transparent, its wholesale actions were much less so. Indeed, attempts to reform the wholesale side of the Church were ineffective. In order to understand this failure at the wholesale level, it is necessary to grasp the central characteristics of the administrative landscape of the medieval Catholic Church.
Upon assuming office as John Paul, the new Pope moved with impressive speed. He concentrated on two major issues greater flexibility in the Church's position on birth control, and cleaning up the financial mess in the Vatican Bank. He was soon frustrated by the entrenched establishment that seemed to move according to its own agenda. It reacted with horror when it learnt that John Paul looked favorably upon contraception as a method of birth control. As one who had grown up in a large family, and had experienced poverty at first hand, he understood the need for birth control to alleviate poverty, and also the need for the Church to take the lead in the effort. He well understood that most Catholic countries are poor and suffer from overpopulation. He also knew that the Church had acquired a bad image in Latin America through its association with right wing dictators like Duvalier of Haiti, Peron of Argentina, Pinochet of Chile and others of the same brand.
Oudendyke's prophetic warnings went unheeded. How Jewish pressure was brought to bear to remove Allied forces fighting with the anti-Communist Whites in Russia is still another story. Bloody Trotsky and Lenin were armed and financed to clean up the job initiated by Jewish Kerensky, and Russia went under sadistic totalitarian anti-Christian, Jewish controlled enslavement, with more countries to follow, until now the entire World is threatened.
In order to counter entry by rivals, incumbent firms often seek to boost demand for their product and insure brand loyalty by advertising. Although the practice of advertising tends to follow the technology of the day, the concept is very old. There is evidence that the medieval Catholic Church recognized very early the necessity of advertising (and differentiating) its product. Early forms of advertising by the medieval church were both informative and persuasive. Preaching and instruction featured much advertising designed to inculcate brand loyalty. This seemed even more imperative in the wake of the Protestant Reformation. On June 17, 1546, the Council of Trent formalized its emphasis on advertising when it decreed that priests should expound and interpret the Holy Scriptures, either personally if they are competent, otherwise by a competent substitute to be chosen by the m '' and that money from church coffers be set aside, if necessary, for instructors in sacred theology, the...
I think there are multiple strands that come in. I'm a firm believer in the fact that unless theological institutions and our seminaries start training leaders to think again and think well, and to be able to articulate their positions well, we'll be running for a long time against the wind. We'll be swimming against the tide. Secondly, we need to go back in our homes and teach our young people how to think properly, how to think critically. Our institutions and our homes are our places of great importance. Our musicians have a very key role here because this is a culture of music and the arts. We need to return to solid thinking in the lyrics of our songs, not just the floaty feeling that punctuates our worship. Our worship has to have integrity returned. There are many, many ways in which I think this needs to be done but not the least of which is we start cleaning up our own house first our families, our institutions, our leadership. And last but not least, I guess I would say we...
So I asked, 'Does your mother love you ' That seemed to insult him. He said, 'Yeah, of course.' I said, 'About three weeks after she had brought you home from the hospital and you were screaming with dirty diapers and she had to wake up dog tired and put her bare feet on the cold floor, clean up your miserable diapers, and feed you a bottle-did you think she really got a bang out of that ' He said, 'No.' I said, 'Well, then, I think your mother was being emotionally dishonest.'
It is likely, O'Connor contends, that through periods ofexpansion capitals will use up natural resources more quickly than at other times resource depletion and pollution can be expected to increase through 'good times'. It may also be the case, of course, that capital seeks to improve its profitability by reducing the costs of the reproduction of labour power and the costs of sustaining the infrastructure.32 There is an important opportunity here for environmental groups in that, through periods of high profitability, capital firms do at least have resources to invest in more efficient ways of using materials and undertake the clean-up of the environment. However, capital may also accumulate through crisis here capitals seek the cheapest raw materials, whatever their ecological cost, and wish to avoid the costs of clearing up pollution, etc. In summary capital always accumulates, sometimes through expansion, sometimes through crisis. (In fact, O'Connor argues, most of the time...
Take Matthew 24 or Mark 13 in which Christ foretells the present age. Luke 21 is also a report of His Olivet discourse. The wars of nation against nation begin the final sorrows. (Matt. 24 7-8) The persecution of Christians in all nations follows. Then comes the Falling Away or apostacy of Christians, which Paul describes as the sign of the finish (II Thes. 2) and this is also noted by Christ in the verse 12 of Matthew, Chapter 24. Then is the sign of the clean-up when the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet shall stand in the holy place.
