Yes! Somebody finally said it...

I would just like to comment that I am seriously impressed by the
quality of works here. Mr. Baccala's essays on capitalism vs.
Christianity found more than a few notes of resonance within me. He
echoes things that I had been thinking about, but never had the guts to
openly express, let alone frame so completely and succinctly.

Some near-random thoughts...

Can any system be compatible with Christianity? Is the incompatibility
fatal? I wonder sometimes. Are we destined to an endless cycle of
revolutions, spewing recycled ideas over and over again like some broken
record? If we cease, are we destined for a perpetual 1984? Ok I gotta
stop now this is too depressing...

How much will the net revolutionize the process of revolution itself?

'I have come that you might have life, and have it to the full.' Yet
also 'I am the Alpha and the Omega.'
What is the limit of 'having life to the full,' when it bumps up against
the Omega?

How far short have we fallen from that in our assembly-line thinking?

Odd. As an engineer I abhor inefficiencies and breakdowns. Yet they
may be the one thing that saves us from systematizing ourselves.
