A sick society produces a sick people

      The US capitalist political economy is a system of madness. Read the Christian bible. What did Jesus say to Nicodemus? Go sell your property and give the money to the poor, for it is easier for the camel to go through the eye of the needle than for a rich man to enter heaven (oneness). Is that capitalism or socialism?

     What did Jesus say in the parable of the Good Samaritan? The Christian, hence, a caring man saw a man with medical needs and provided him one, free of charge. That is, medical services must be provided to all people.

      In the USA if you have money, you buy good medical services but if you are poor no one cares for you and yet Americans call themselves Christians!

      If the Bible is your standard of morality, there are no Christians in the USA. Karl Marx (Der Capital, Communist Manifesto) approximates true Christianity than Adam Smith (however, we know that communism leads to brutal dictatorship, so I am not a communist, I am a mixed economist, a social democrat and a true Christian).

     The point I am making here is that Americans live in a literal insane political system and each of them adapts to this madness in his own insane way.

      Have you seen a mentally healthy American? I have not. Donald Trump is a pathological narcissist and anti-social personality disordered man; Joseph Biden is a doddering, senile old man.

   I have not seen one American, who by the standards of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, is not a mentally disordered person. (The same applies in other countries, but I am limiting my present focus on the USA.)

     In family systems therapy, the family is seen as the source of the child’s mental issues, to cure him you must cure his entire family, teach them to love one another.

     America is a family, and its capitalist mental sickness makes individual Americans sick. To cure individual Americans, you must cure all of America by teaching the people to behave as Jesus did.

     Jesus Christ asked his followers to love and to care for one another.

     Jesus is not the caricature America made him. Instead of doing what the man asked them to do, love and care for each other, they placed him on a pedestal and worship him, make him their idol, their ego god.

     Jesus Christ is not our Lord and Savior; he is a friend who loves all people and wants you to love all people. We shall yet make the USA and the entire world a Christian country, if you know what Christianity means, radical love for all living things.
