Religion is the Sigh of the Oppressed Creature (homeboy Karl Marx)

Karl Marx 1818-1883

Although it provides solace, religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world.

Karl Marx argues that religion is a belief system that enables the ruling class to maintain power in the present by promising the working class that things will be better in the hereafter.  The poor find solace in moral teachings because, ultimately, they will reap a reward for their suffering; social change is averted because religion stabilizes society and upholds the status quo.

If you are a poor person, maybe at some point you will look at yourself and say “I am poor.”   Perhaps you will think it does not seem fair.  Maybe you deserve better from life.  I think the key force is the use of critical thought.  the ability to ask questions.   “Why are things this way?”  “What can I do to improve my own life?”

The Ruling Class does not want you to do that.  They want you to accept that you life may not be good right now but if you worship the Lord and are a god follower of the Lord then you shall be rewarded in the afterlife.

UnNamed Dave Part 3 – The Big D

Dave picked up the phone to dial the client.  He was excited to offer the client the “Big Data” which he knew that sometimes clients liked.

RING RING RING

“Hello.”  The voice kind of mumbles.

Dave: Hello it is Dave with TechCombo.  How are you doing today?

Client takes a second to pause.  Then speaks softly, “I am doing fine how are you?”

Dave:  Great.  I am doing good.  What kind of projects have you been working on?

Client says, “Oh I work with database management.  I have been building a program that will allow me to sort the data and put it in groups.”

Dave: Oh okay.  So you are working with large amounts of data?

“Um not too large.  It is me and 2 other developers who are working on this.  We have been facing some bugs.”  The client says.

Dave:  Do you have an interest in our Big Data tool?

“Honestly, I am not sure.  I have not had much time to look at it.”  Said the client.

Dave:  Well, I think you could stretch out your client base with the Big Data.  When you are dealing with a massive girth of data you really need our TechCombo Big Data to handle that kind of thing.  Other organizations’ Big Data fail prematurely and you end up with a sticky mess of code.  The TechCombo Big Data can pound away like a champ!

“I am afraid those things you just said were too sexual for me.  Goodbye!”  CLICK.  The client hung the phone up.

Dave stood up and looked to his friend, Mark.  “Hey Mark, he just did not want the Big D.”

Mark:  Yeah well he is probably going to end up with a sticky mess of code.

It Floats

It had arrived in the night

It was somewhat ramshackled and creaky

But it was also large and ominous

We don’t know how it got there

But it floated above

There were large wooden poles rising into the sky above it

I was ready for adventure and maybe this will bring it

People did not want it to fall but nobody seemed worried about why it had risen

What kind of mysteries did it hold?
