Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

Gas prices continue to rise in a steady climb that seems to be linked to revolution in the middle east. But is it really? Doubtful. More likely, this is the typical greed by money hungry corporations looking for a way to cash in, even at the expense of whole economic systems. After all, wasn’t it the Bush regime that began planting the seeds of discord in the middle eastern Islamic countries? Well, now there plot is coming to fruition. Obviously in the best interest of big oil business, and not many others.

They don’t spend as much on clothing as much. They don’t spend as much on recreation as much. The signs of economic “depression” are all around us and they do not appear to be healing at all, contrary to the propaganda rampant around us.
