Response to adirondacker (Reply #15)

23. Not invented by but defiantly used by.

It is the enlightened one who "invents" religion, and as soon as he is gone the ruling class co opts it for control...Christianity for example was hijacked by Rome for power and control.
And today the right wing has hijacked it for the sake of Ayn Rand philosophy.

Buy you are right about the ugly American...We have been trained in confrontation and conflict in dealing with the world...and that was not the principles this country was founded on, but what we have become.
