    The fight for free religion

    The fight for free religion in America


    This PBS video, broadcasted on 12/18/2012, is worth watching and thinking about.

    http://video.pbs.org/video/2315729403

    It is full of topics worth debating, either here or elsewhere. Please share the link with those who might also be interested.

    Best wishes to all,
    Ludwik Kowalski, author of a free ON-LINE book entitled “Diary of a Former Communist: Thoughts, Feelings, Reality.”

    http://csam.montclair.edu/~kowalski/life/intro.html

    It is a testimony based on a diary kept between 1946 and 2004 (in the USSR, Poland, France and the USA).

    The more people know about proletarian dictatorship the less likely will we experience is. Please share the link with those who might be interested, especially with young people, and with potential reviewers.

    Can't open the video but I just want to share my brief opinion.

    The general perception is that the difference between a religion and a cult is only based on the number of adherents. Small religions are deemed cults while long-standing traditional religions are socially accepted, forgetting that all religions have started small and therefore are cults! So which are good and which are bad for society?

    A religion that tries to protect its adherents from mainstream society is imo a cult, big or not big. To that purpose it has to continuesly increase the fear factor, i.e. brainwash the believing community whilst a good cult tries to protect the society from all too radical transformations desired by the new belief system so that it will not overshoot and get persecuted by law, branded as a cult.
    You gotta keep yourself small. Innocuous. Be the little guy...just look at me; underestimated from day one.
