God Don’t Work For Nobody

“Like it or not, we do survive our decent burials. We are all here to Midnight Eternity. That means Big Daddy-o ain’t gonna go out of business for nobody, and he ain’t working for nobody either.”


Zora Neale Hurston (Dust Tracks on a Road, 1942, 1970, 1995) wrote …

“You cannot arouse any enthusiasm in me to join in a protest for the boss to provide me with a better hoe to chop his cotton with. Why must I chop cotton at all? Why fix a class of cotton-choppers? I will join in no protests for the boss to put a little more stuffing in my bunk. I don’t even want a bunk. I want the boss’s bed. It seems to me that the people who are enunciating these principles are so saturated with European ideas that they miss the whole point of America. The people who founded this country, and the immigrants who came later, came here to get away from the class distinctions and to keep their unborn children from knowing about them, I am all for the idea of free vertical movement, nothing horizontal.”


Noam Chomsky (Propaganda and the Public Mind: Interviews by David Barsamian, 2001) wrote …

“At one time in the United States, in the mid-nineteenth century, working for wage labor was considered not very different from chattel slavery. That was not an unusual position. That was the slogan of the Republican Party, the banner under which Northern workers fought in the Civil War. We’re against chattel slavery and wage slavery. Free people do not rent themselves to others. Maybe you’re forced to do it temporarily, but that’s only on the way to becoming a free person, or ‘free man,’ to put it in the rhetoric of the day. You become a free man when you’re not compelled to take orders from others. That’s an Enlightenment ideal.”


Noam Chomsky (“Aspects of a Theory of Mind, December 1984,” Language and Politics, Expanded Second Edition, edited by C.P. Otero, 1988, 2004) wrote …

“If history goes on for another hundred years, which is dubious, I imagine that people will be looking back to practices that we accept and condone and will regard them as morally monstrous. In fact, it is not difficult to point out some of them. For example, we now regard it as a moral monstrosity for one person to enslave another, but we regard it as proper and just for people to be compelled to rent themselves to others in order to survive – what was once called ‘wage slavery.’ Someday we may come to appreciate that this too is an infringement on fundamental human rights — as, in fact, has long been argued in the libertarian socialist tradition.”


Pitirim A. Sorokin (The Crisis of Our Age: The Social and Cultural Outlook, 1941) wrote …

“Many do not realize that the economy of modern corporations and trusts is already quite different from that of the capitalistic system based upon authentic private property, and that the rise of corporation economy signifies also a decline of contractual economy. Still fewer realize that the first mortal blow to private property and the contractual capitalistic system of the nineteenth century was dealt not by communists and socialists but by the captains of industry and finance in the second part of the century. Communists and totalitarians only finished what those began.”

    “God don’t work for nobody, and neither should you.”

      Yeah you lost me at God…
      I guess I don’t see the relevance of God to your essay…which I did read.

      I remember a friend saying, “I have more money than God.”

      Yup. God is penniless.

      I recently read a book about Freud’s crazy theories about sexuality and hysteria. How did so many follow his crazy ideas. Yes we will look back…
      Jung may have been a protege of Freud…but he cut a new wood so to speak.

      Bernie Sanders may be on the right track.

      And don’t amass gold coin etc unless you plan to have an army. Bread is bought with silver more easily.

      Frankly my 2 years off-grid…barely touching cash….were so liberating. I even had a vehicle I lived in that could have nickled & dimed me…but I had wares and skills…
      ….what a wonderful time that was.

      Thanks for evoking that memory!

        How many books have you read by Freud and Jung?

        Freud wrote that God is an illusion based on the need for a father figure.

        He wrote that religion is a “universal obsessional neurosis.”

        Jung was asked if he believed in God, and he replied, “I don’t need to believe in God. I know God exists.”

        Maybe you picked the wrong horse? It happens sometimes.

    Re: As for yellow fat disease in farm-raised salmon, I’m having trouble understanding how that food system would have much omega 3 fatty acids at all. Where is it coming from?

    Fish. As long as fish stay under (1) high pressures, (2) cold temperatures, and (3) darkness, they’re resistant to Yellow Fat Disease (progressive lipofuscinosis).

    In fact, fish oil promotes longevity at depth, at cold temperatures, and in darkness.

    Fish farms remove fish from their natural deep, cold, and dark habitats, subjecting them to lower atmospheres of pressure (33 feet = 1 ATM), higher degrees of temperature, and a brighter and more colorful environment.

    That’s why synthetic antioxidants such as ethoxyquin (EQ), tertiary butylhydroxyquinone (TBHQ), butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), and butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) are such money-spinners — nothing else with relatively low toxicity is capable of concealing cumulative lipofuscinosis.

    Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw championed EQ and BHT as “Life Extension supplements” back in the early 1980s.
