"committed all judgment unto the Son" - Money, People vs. God

A Corner of Tokyo...

 Money, People vs. God 

PART I: Democracy & Market Economy

The society consists of rich citizens and poor citizens.

They live under democracy and in the market economy like in Greece.  The issue can be simplified as a battle between the rich and the poor over how democracy and the market economy should be balanced.

With expansion of democracy, welfare of the poor grows to a point of saturation.  With deployment of the market economy, the poor gets more benefits, but they see a decline of their welfare after passing a certain level of diffusion of the market economy.

So, it is important that any authority make the rich accept the levels of democracy and the market economy that are best suited for maximization of poor men's benefits but allow the rich to enjoy a very moderate level of their wealth.

PART II: Wall Street vs. Democracy

When Christianity stopped growing in and Judaism came to fully adapt itself in the US society, Wall Street came to become a holy land of a new American religion of the rule of money.

How billionaires destroy democracy
Wealthy Wall Streeters have rigged the economy and the government against the people. Here's how they did it
The business elite is and always has been the most powerful force in U.S. politics, by virtue of its dominant role in the economy. But what is striking — and perhaps inspiring to revisit — is the extent to which the power of business was somewhat curtailed in the 1930–1970 period, and the extent to which this allowed policies favoring other members of society to flourish....

Powell laid out a comprehensive plan that bears an uncanny resemblance to what actually happened. He argued that business largely owned, funded, or had influence over the key media, religious, and academic institutions in society, and should use its leverage to counter what he perceived as the liberal, anti-business bias of these institutions. He advocated explicit business intervention in the political sphere, where he said the American businessman had become “truly the forgotten man.”...

Mark Hanna may well have identified a crude truth about American politics when he said “There are two things that are important in politics. The first is money and I can’t remember what the second is.” Perhaps the second thing, which the Republican strategist so casually forgot, is that it matters how widely money is distributed. We therefore offer up a corollary to Hanna’s rule: When money is distributed more equally in society, ordinary citizens speak with louder voices, making meaningful democracy possible.

PART III: Wall Street vs. God

If Democracy cannot suppress Wall Street-type of spirits, mankind has to resort to teaching of God.

But there are many biased guys who think they are followers of teaching of the God, while they do not look blessed at all by the God.
Religious Right Groups Ask God To Thwart Occupy Wall Street

While Religious Right leaders lauded tea party groups for taking to the streets, now they are asking for the government, and God, to crush the Occupy Wall Street movement. 
Earlier this week, the Family Research Council asked members to pray against "these raucus [sic] groups" and "ideological anarchists," asking for God to "harvest souls for Christ among them":
