Living in luxury at the expense of others
Ted Rudow III, MA, Encina Ave, Palo Alto, CA
Almost all American industries, even non-war industries, are making money at the expense of the poor of other nations of the world. In order to do so you have to rob them, in a sense, to have your plenty, not plenty, but more than enough, I mean far more than you ought to have, more than your share.
They call a commercial war, and it means in order to get my luxury. In other words, I am living in luxury at your expense. America has been living in luxury at the world's expense while other nations are starving. So America lives in luxury while they live in poverty and starvation. You think God's going to bless them? No!
For thy merchants were the great men of the Earth, and by thy sorceries (the deceitfulness of riches and the witchcraft of wealth!) were all nations deceived! (American affluence is the dream of every country the world over, and her luxuries, sins and violence, from her music to her crimes, are imitated by nations around the world!)
