How could something so miraculous as the birth of the Jesus in a rustic stable over two thousand years ago have turned into a celebration of materialistic lust?
If Jesus were born today, the Star of Bethlehem would not even be visible due to the chemtrails and light pollution.
The stable owner would see a money making opportunity and would sell tickets to anyone wishing to see the baby Jesus.
Steven Spielberg would buy the rights to film Mary and Joseph as they fled to Egypt.
Jesus would be inundated with gifts from baby food manufactures and clothing line companies, which operates sweatshops in China, hoping for endorsements of their products.
The family would be put up in a big name hotel for the publicity it would bring.
Diaper companies would fight over who could provide Jesus with the biggest supply of diapers.
Maybe we do, on a plank level.
The meaningfulness or meaninglessness of a life is dependent upon our behavior with our fellow man, irregardless of what time of year it may be, and in the end, perhaps the greatest lesson to be learned here is that, in a world disfigured by wars and catastrophe , there is clearly much work needed to be done.
