anthropophagi

EnergyResources | In summary, the Inquisition has, no doubt, committed many crimes with innocent people for centuries, but the image that still project, pales when compared with the new forms of torture, slavery, massive killings, global robberies, etc., made by the wealthiest and most powerful on the rest of the world. Perhaps the insistence in perpetuating the bad image of the Inquisition is promoted by those fearing that Torquemada may come back again and make justice with the handful of criminals launching all the days Financial Weapons of Mass Destruction (FWMD's) on the world population.

What happened some centuries ago, is that other Christian religions (Protestant, Calvinist) decided to abandon the principle of interests being a sin. And under these conditions, the lenders started to accumulate huge amounts of wealth, in front of the borrowers, winning a competitive edge in the accumulation of wealth, versus those still reluctant to ask for interests.

The Catholic Church and related countries entered then in a competitive disadvantage and lost control of many resources (and hence, power) in front of those other accepting to ask for interests on the principal, as a mean to become wealthier by the minute. Catholic countries passed through mixed feelings for centuries, where bankers (banksters?) already changed themselves to the interest demanding side, but the religion was still considering usury a bad idea; a cloud of doubts raised many debates (still alive) whether 1 or 2 percent per year could be acceptable and perhaps a 20% per year could be punishable. The borders of usury are always difficult to draw, unless the line is set at zero level.

It has been only recently (from a historic perspective), where the Catholic Church decided to change the Lord's Prayer, at least in the nominally Catholic Spain, from the traditional

Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done, as in heaven, so on earth.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And bring us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.

To the most modern and convenient

Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

So that the Catholic banksters could go to sleep with a clean conscience and start to compete again with the rest of the banksters on equal basis.

It is curious, for instance, how the manger and trough world media has dealt with the managing director of the IMF, Dominique Strauss-Khan, now in a jail in Harlem, for having allegedly raped a waitress in a hotel. And it is amazing how the media and many Western people have ignored that this specimen was in a plane to come back to Europe, having in this agenda for the next night, to rape 11 million Portuguese, innocent victims (his substitute, immediate replacing him,
has decided to impose overnight some 7,500 Euros per capita of additional debt, to be returned, with terrifying interests, in 3 years. And if there are doubts, as per his lawyers, that the first rape was consented, it is clear that the 11 million rapes two days later were not.). And he had already raped another 11 million Greeks a la Greek style with similar or even more stringent debts plus interests.

Apparently, nobody thinks that he should deserve a trial (or a pyre or a trial in an International Court, a la Gaddafi or Saddam style) for the big number of rapes on behalf of "the Markets" (who are "the Markets"?)

But something may be moving in the world. Some eruptions in Northern Africa are still raising smoke columns and I am assisting, completely astonished, to a sudden, unprogrammed eruption of youngsters, retired people, housewives, or jobless, or even people wearing ties, in many Spanish cities, by tenths of thousands, peacefully but angered, in the middle of the boring falsified bipartisan rotten election campaign. They are demanding a change of life from the roots. They are asking for responsibilities to the banksters and to the rotten politicians to change to a direct, assembly democracy. They are fed up of corrupted democracy.

Perhaps this time is rien ne va plus. No more Go West. No more Non Plus Ultra. Enough is enough. They are quoting the book of Stephane Hessel "Indignez Vous!" (get indignant!) We shall see.
