Bertrand Russell was a "scientific consultant" to evil psychopaths who wanted to run a world tyranny.
In this book, he lays out a framework for a "scientific" global dictatorship, and ponders the intricacies of bringing it about, while blithely penning his sociopathic rationalizations for moving forward with it.
Here is my homily for the feast of JESUS CHRIST, KING OF THE UNIVERSE – NOVEMBER 20, 2011. Jim HOMILY: Since late September, there’s been wide-spread protests around the country – around the globe that has been dubbed by some as “the occupy movement.” Here in the New York Metro-area, the local version of it has been called Occupy Wall Street, which has made famous a small park that not only tourists to the Big Apple had never heard of before, but probably many New Yorkers were unaware of as well – Zuccotti Park.
The readings can be found at As always, thanks for reading and all your feedback. As with any protest movement, there’s been various claims and charges that depending upon your perspective either inspires you or enrages you.
There have been things said and done by some individuals associated with the movement that make it hard for anyone to want to be even remotely connected with them (like anti-Semitic sentiments) – to other things that would be hard for anyone to deny or argue against (high unemployment, corruption, the influence corporations have on all aspects of economic, political and cultural life) It’s confused a lot of people because there’s no clear leader, nor has there been any list of specific demands.
But if you’re able to get to the core of the movement, a common theme or a top reason so many are out there protesting, the reason you would hear given the most is that they are there to fight against “greed.” The protestors argue that greed is the reason there’s so much unemployment, foreclosures, so many problems that affect a great majority of the people (they would claim 99% of the population) because of the excesses done by a few.

Jesus would have sympathy, I think, with the campers’ efforts to keep a small space sanitary in the absence of modern plumbing… What Jesus really said, and what he meant, are the subjects of culture’s greatest controversies, but one thing is sure.
When I’m greedy – when my focus goes to what I alone want, immediately I’ve stopped considering what anybody else needs because my focus is on the pursuit of what I want.
When we imagine that on a greater level – corporations, governments, institutions – acting that way, we can see how this could affect even greater numbers of people.
His relationships and behavior revealed God’s compassionate love for and solidarity with the voiceless, marginalized and poor of our world.
I think Jesus would indeed be a fan of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
