For those of you who are trapped in the corporate media culture with its news, education, and popular entertainment (which is nearly everyone) let me tell you that there is an alternative to the workhard/playhard ethic of the corporate/popular world.
For those of you who cannot see out of the web of evil that surrounds us there is a way out.
There is a God.
And He is Good.
It is not the god of the established religions - the punitive tough guy waiting to punish you - that is a reflection of the established authorities themselves.
It is the merciful, compassionate God of steadfast love, forgiveness, and faithfulness who will answer sincere prayers.
So cry out to God!
He will deliver you.
