Class Crucifixion

Money, Power, Religion and the Death of the Middle Class

Authored by Dr. Lance Moore

Class Crucifixion: Money, Power, Religion and the Death of the Middle Class
Greed, Class Warfare, and the Rising Fourth Reich

Crucifixion? A strong word, not always one with religious overtones, but chosen here to signify more than a gentle, natural death. The American middle class-the world's best hope for democracy and freedom-is being destroyed. And ironically, the modern perpetrators claim to follow the teachings of the most-famous victim of political and religious power-mongering. In Jesus' time, the religious elite and the ruling political class conspired to crucify him; today, the working class is being betrayed in the name of Jesus by yet another cabal of power, money and religion.

Dr. Lance Moore, author, pastor and businessman, believes the current war being waged against the middle class is not Christian at all, but instead is a "Fourth Reich of the Rich" blitzkrieg -rooted in greed. Drawing upon history, economics, religion and compelling logic, he pops modern myths, showing:
*How free markets aren't free *That the biggest welfare recipients are corporations *How Goldman-Sachs got rich selling a manure sandwich *Why CEO's are overpaid (including the true story of the chimp who picked stocks better than the Masters of the Universe on Wall Street).

Moore offers solutions, but does not advocate bigger government or communist-style confiscation of private property. "One principle of capitalism is indisputable: money motivates. But profit and productivity do not require a 'Girls Gone Wild' capitalism. A trained and reined Kentucky Derby winner runs faster than unbridled wild horses. It's time to re-examine the laissez-faire proposition that the 'invisible hand' of the market is an intelligent way to run our world. Time for a new ethic, time to put people before profits, time to save the American Dream."

"Every responsible and virtuous citizen should read three things: the Scriptures, a daily newspaper... and this book!" ~Dr. Thomas Lane Butts
