The Daily Walk with Love
God’s strong demand of mankind:
If humanity is to survive, ultimately we must embrace
a more sharing sort of economic system. Yes, there is a need
for economic austerity at this time but the rich must share the burden.
Overall, there are just too many people and too few resources
to continue as we have been. Restoring the food stamps cuts
would be a good start as well as politically astute.

We Must build a more
caring, sharing society
We must begin to ACTUALLY love
our neighbors as ourselves, or perhaps
humanity might face an end.

overcomes the love of power,
the world will know peace
The Daily Walk with Love, October 19, 2017, by Paul Evans. I republished this today because I strongly believe it is of vital importance to mankind’s future, as I have been inspired to believe. With musical inspiration from Alan Parsons – Live In Madrid (2004) – Rockin’ the Free World, The Daily Walk with Love, January 13, 2017, by Paul Evans, courtesy of YouTube. Featured photograph has a quotation from the Bible, Galatians 5:14, which we would all do well to keep in mind. Email the author, Paul Evans, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Speak the truth, all of you, openly, honestly, kindly and with only the exceptions you must make for protocol or safety or (somewhat) “to get along in the world.” Sin boldly and know that God loves you. Being kind makes you kind, and I believe we should all try to live at least a little bit like Jesus taught in our lives. Living like Jesus taught makes you like Jesus!
The Lot of the Poor
and the Food Stamps Cuts
We MUST now develop a more caring, sharing society, with more openness to upward mobility and a better life for all humanity. This is basically more essential than is realized even for the continuation of mankind as a viable species (evolutionarily). Moreover the Misery Index INDICATES STRONGLY that it is now in the interests of the rich to help the poor at this time. If not, at least somewhat, there will be economic collapse. The common man and the poor are besieged at every turn. Under Barack Obama, a 50 percent cut was made to our food stamps program, five percent a year over ten years. One has to think they did it that way so as to hide the impact of this from the public. But the cost saved is only $38 billion a year (the price of 20 F-35 fighters which are a questionable worth anyway), and really $38 billion is not that much, all things considered. MOST of the people on food stamps have jobs and most of them are single mothers. So by cutting food stamps by 50 percent, you are literally taking food out of the mouths of little children and babies. This is shameful. I was disgusted when Obama signed that bill. Let me just say, given that we NEED to raise the lot of the poor in order to stave off economic collapse, and to keep people with a positive attitude and buying consumer goods, restoring the food stamps cuts would be a VERY good idea. The party which pushed restoring the food stamps cuts would look awfully good to the people and get votes in the next election. Isn’t all this clear?
The wealthy have squeezed the poor more than is economically healthy. Cutting food stamps by 50 percent was a morally wrong and economically misguided idea. See Stockman, Soros, Others: At Least 40 Percent Market Crash is Inevitable (Updated), The Daily Walk with Love, October 10, 2017, by Paul Evans. So far as I can see, the real misery index, which is the best known predictor of the economic future, is now worse than it was in 1929. The ONLY remedy for this is to somewhat empower and relieve the poor and middle classes. Restoring the food stamps cuts is an easy way to do this, and would be popular. Remember the Bible prophecy, “Oh thou that dwell on many waters, rich in treasure, wide in fame, bow unto a god of gold, thy pride of might shall be thy shame.” Believe it, it will happen unless you relieve and empower the poor. It’s your money!
Donald Trump and Inequality
Donald Trump must keep the welfare of the common man in mind even as he makes necessary reforms. See Inequality and The American Dream, The Daily Walk with Love, October 9, 2017, by Paul Evans. This article points the way with the successful model of Salt Lake City from which to build a more economically empowered, equal and upwardly mobile society. I would suggest that the overall concept of “trickle down,” while a failed concept economically and in terms of taxes, does have some validity. Ralph Nader, the Reform Party candidate and consumer advocate, published a book, “Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us!” (2011, Amazon paperback $14.53 or Kindle $15.99). The point is, the rich might have to give up one vacation a year in order to make this a much more stable, prosperous and well-adjusted society. Do we think of ourselves as a Christian society? See 1 John 3:17 (KJV) — “But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?“
How to Actually Build
a More Caring, Sharing Society
If humanity is to survive, ultimately we must embrace a more sharing sort of economic system. Yes, there is a need for economic austerity at this time but the rich must share the burden. Overall, there are just too many people and too few resources to continue as we have been. One website which provides ideas and concrete help on how to base our own lives on sharing (things as simple as carpooling) is Shareable, which I highly recommend. Another resource is a really useful book called Share or die (Amazon.com, Kindle, $9.99). See Political Ideology versus Caring, The Daily Walk with Miracles, July 31, 2017, by Paul Evans.

We can at least offer each other a little kindness and compassion, right?
