For Love or Money, We have Chosen Money

In search of a new leader, we have chosen to take the money route.  A leader's fiscal and budgetary issues have become very important, so important that we value it more than love.  We could care less about how much a leader loves his society rather than what a leader will do to help that individual achieve financial status and keep up with the Joneses. 

We do not care how much love we have among the masses, we seem to care about what the Joneses think of us.  We want to impress them and yet keep up with them.  We want to buy  the iPhone and think of hugs as unusual, un-man like, etc.  We have chosen money over love when it has came to leadership because we valued capitalism and considered love as socialism.  Since when has love become Socialism?  The only evil in society is not capitalism nor socialism, it's Satanism, disrespect for society and the hatred of the community. 

Where has the leadership gone?  There was once a time, when love was valued and companionship was admired.  Leaders could say I love you to the masses.  Today, a leader that says I love you would be laughed at.  But a leader who gave money away to you, you would love him for all the wrong reasons. 

A leader that hugs is a leader I want.  A leader that loves is a leader I want.  A leader that has compassion is a leader I want.  A leader that sticks up for the little guy is the leader I want.  A leader that guides is a leader I want.  A leader that keeps in touch with the masses is a leader I want. 

Love of a companion, love of a family member, or your friend.  We all care for each other.  This was not too long ago.  Now we are trying to impress the likes of people like Lindsay Lohan and Donald Trump, because to us, their opinion mattered and Mr. Fred Rogers is no longer important to us.  We burned friends in reach of money. 

The saying may have been, "More money, More Power, More Respect."  Yet when a human had to choose between being loved or being respected, we all hoped that they would have chosen love.  The Society of We's and the Society of I's is not a War between Capitalism or Socialism, it's the War that unites the Good and Divides the Evil. 

We are more concerned with our tax cuts than we are with our community.  We could care less of what others are saying, and yet, we want to keep up with the Joneses.  The society has weakened in some values, and strengthened in others.  Just because a society is materialistically rich does not mean that it is also spiritually rich.  A society that has a good blend of each can overcome any attack against it and will win the hearts and minds of the nations it conquires in the quest for One Nation, One World, The United World of Earth. 

A leader can not even say I love you to the people they lead.  This is the type of quality of a leader we need.  When you are in a state of depression, sadness, etc.  what would you rather have?  All the money in the World, or a Group of Friends who love and care about you and give you a hug to know you belong here?  I would choose the friends, because many billionaires, millionaires live a lonely life.  We sadly look up to them as an example, perhaps they may look to the masses for their own inspiration. 

One of the most common stories we hear often is that many lotto winners who won the lotto ended up in a depressed state and would say in news stories that they wish they never won the lotto because they would not be in the mess that they are in currently.  While money mattered to them, they realized that the beautify of happiness is not in money, but in life, in those that were there for them in the beggining, before they won the lotto, not after.  The Afterlife after the lotto changed, in the outside world, it seemed for the better, but in the end, it was for the worst.

The battle of Love vs. Money will be a continuing battle until the end of human time.  The battle has nothing to do with Capitalism nor Socialism, but it has to do with the leaders of the two societies.  The Society of Love vs. the Society of Money.  The Society of Love is a spiritually happy society, while the Society of Money is a physically happy society. 

It reminds me of an episode in the old classic "Twilight Zone" in which a mobster goes on a robbery and then gets shot by the cops.  He arrives in a place, which seems like heaven, all the money in the world, he can do anything he wants, have all the girls he wants, etc.  He can gamble, drink, etc.  He thinks it's heaven and that he must have done something good to get there.  But then he realizes, he could get anything he wants and realizes that this place is getting boring, so boring as the phrase goes "Boring as Hell."  In the end he finds out he was in Hell.
