What's Wrong with the Bailouts?


By nathan - Posted on 12 December 2008

It has been proven in recent months, that political power does not lend itself to constraint. As financial institutions and companies all over the country have started spiraling because of bad loans and uncontrolled debt, the politicians have swooped in to the save the day.

With trillions of dollars being passed out to banks and other companies, many columnists, pundits and politicians are crying foul for various reasons.

  • It's too much money
  • It's not enough money
  • No golden parachutes for executives
  • There's not enough oversight
  • It's a bad investment
  • It won't work
  • It's putting the country further into debt
  • Yet, do any of these address the real problem with the bailouts?

    You Shall Not Steal

    The fundamental problem with bailouts is that they are a violation of God's eternal commandment "Do not steal." In today's climate of moral relativism we are so quick to analyze the practicality of political actions yet completely ignore the morality of those actions.

    Maybe we have given up the moral high ground because our government has stolen from it's citizens for so long to buy votes and other avenues to power.
    Maybe we are making arguments based on utility because we have no expectation that our leaders will consider matters of right and wrong. But even if we were to successfully convince our leaders that bailouts won't work practically, we would still lose the most important battle for the soul of our nation.

    Even if our political leaders turn a deaf ear to our "moralizing" and "preaching" based on righteousness, there are still many others who are listening to what we say. Will they hear us offering just another opinion on what works or will they hear us lifting up the standard of righteousness and truth.

近日,朋友圈以及网络上疯传一张宝马车顶拍不雅福利照片,可以看到是一辆宝马敞篷跑车车牌是桂a7v777,两男一女在车顶上摆出了某种不雅姿势。一些关键部位还被打上了马赛克,瞬间第一眼看上去就像是“3P打野战”,又是一个艳照门?
然而这个所谓的南宁宝马门和之前一些突然爆红的陆家嘴视频、优衣库、宜家等不一样略有不同...事情的真相令人出乎意外。“错过了优衣库,你还有陆家嘴,两者都错过,那么还有宜家”,而现在大概网友还会加上一句三者都错过,南宁宝马门等着你···
