Loving Your Neighbor

Imperial economics is designed to keep people satiated so that they do not notice. Its politics is intended to block out the cries of the denied ones. Its religion is to be an opiate so that no one discerns misery in the heart of God.
–Walter Brueggeman

The above quote is included in a very thought provoking paper entitled, "Compassion and Contemplation in Today's World" by Dr. Victoria Marie, O.S.F. Department of Educational Studies, University of British Colombia
