Kamikaze Corporations and The Regime

Ok, I have my foil cap firmly in place. As I was getting caught up on the news last night, hearing for the umpteenth time about British Petroleum's contributions to the Obama campaign. And I was mildly roused about BP's green initiative prior to the spill. I remember that ad campaign. As I listened to these things, my memory was stirred. I remembered hearing a very similar story not even two months ago. Remember Goldman Sachs? When we were discussing the terrible financial mess and Goldman Sachs was the bad guy then. They too were big supporters of the Obama and very committed to the green movement. You would think that both of these companies would get a pass and some conservative company or companies would be blamed instead.

Both of these crisis situations have as their end, legislation. Legislation that increases the government's authority, power and size. Both Saul Alinsky and Rham Emanuel have been quoted as saying "never let a crisis go to waste". But what if you don't have time to wait for a 'good' crisis. What if an election is on the horizon and the window of opportunity is quickly closing.

Here it is. Could it be possible that corporations aligned with progressive thought, have made the deliberate choice to sabotage their chosen industry and fall on their own swords for the "greater good". Before the muslims, there were the Japanese kamikaze, a philosophical descendant of the banzai. The central tenant of these tactics was, out of desperation, the use of suicide or near suicide to wreak great psychological and physical damage. The end game is to bring about a radical change.

Jesus pointed out in John 10:10 "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." The end game for the Lord is life, not death. We have a choice, what is yours.
