For LOVE or MONEY?


When you listen to William's words of more than a year ago, and place them in the context of current events, you might come away with a sense that this man offers more here than all the words you will read for quite some while to come. 108 likes .... 12,000 views.

As we ponder the plight of our world, you may be surprised at the solution he offers.

And with that said, I will offer these few words for you to read today. 

Do give a listen. I recommend it.

  1. What a great conclusion to his lecture (discussing fear and love). I sure wasn't expecting that!

    1. Nor was I ... but I liked it!.

      Some will conquer the dark side of human nature with love. More pragmatically perhaps with gold. In the end, both act upon the power to "create wealth at will", an absolute power that will always be abused, as it corrupts absolutely.

  4. "Some will conquer the dark side of human nature with love."

    I hate to be the party pooper but the flip side of that is "Some will conquer the bright side of human nature with hate." ISIS is the perfect example. I will not waste a drop of love on these savages.

    The conclusion of the video is heart warming but I think the power of bombs is much more reliable and pragmatic for these blood thirsty Islamic savages. The world will not conquer the U.S. financial savages with love either, gold will be the bombs.

  5. In several Al Jazeera related articles from the past, translated into english, but now evaporated from the web, I recall two terms being used repeatedly, and can only presume that the translations were literal.
    "the gold weapon" was one, and "the oil weapon" was another.

    This is not our grandfather's conventional war.
