Baaling on Our False Gods
In today's world, our false gods are not found in our houses of worship, but in the temples to wealth and isolation all around us. We are trained to revere wealth for its own sake, and for its ability to save the things that we love. And no wealth is so highly esteemed as that gained on one's own. But wealth always depends on other people. Too often, wealth comes at a cost to all of us, and to humanity. What sacrifices do we make on its altar?
