How Greed Got Us Into Disaster-the Raft of Goldman Sachs
The raft recalls the famous painting of Theodore Gerricault The Raft of the Medusa. It is based on a historical incident where the survivors resorted to cannibalism in order to survive. The conditions we face now are somehat similar. The banks have played with public funds for immediate gains knowing it is risky and bound to cause chaos. One of the principal villains in the piece is the banking firm Goldman Sachs and they seem to have had a hand in advising Greece on their wealth management. In the cartoon the baby (or the Poor countries) seems to say,’Look your CDO’s Derivates,Swops are going to be the death of me!’

He works in mysterious ways of course. No man or angels can ever say how for sure.We humans seem to be quick in judging events;while some Christians seem to think that they can. Ah I have seen in my time some preachers who think they have established a hot line with God as soon as they have gone on their knees. They have their followers who believe what they want to believe. But are they right?


Earth’s geomagnetic field owes to two sources-one generated deep within the outer core and one in the shallow core. The events every individual sets off create energy outflow and the combined effect of the whole also creates a field where any event at any given time and place must meet. Thus success we attribute to any action has but a short duration and how it turns out on a long range is anybody’s guess.
Does God affect the outcome? Like a solar flare disrupts magnetic activities we are subject to higher laws that we give names. God or Oneness of Things etc.,
God is Truth. Our interactions with one another create a magnetic north, which is different from True North.

If one throws all scruples to the winds and yet seems to prosper, do not accuse God of being indifferent. By the same token do not think merely because you are so law-abiding and honest God confers you special advantages. Our concept of God is as different as magnetic north is from True North.
We observe and speak from our finite position. How can you say the evil man doesn’t get his comeuppance? Evil exacts silently its own pound of flesh. This I can speak from my limited experience. A man who ‘undeservedly’ get shafted by life for all his piety may develop by life experience an inner core untouched by reward or threats. He shall have equanimity and poise even in the face of trouble. Yes Goodness has its own reward.
For all intents and purpose it suffices me; as I would worship God the Father,’Let Thy Kingdom Come’. With God in His rightful place whatever happens for good or bad from my point of view is to be accepted. Also to be improved as best as I can. How can I be resigned to what I can change if it is against my good sense? Having tried all to leave what is beyond my control to God.
