Democracy is a citizen driven system of government that is of the people, by the people, and for the people. The foundation of democracy is spiritual-moral values informed by basic tenets of human rights and human dignity: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Thus, democracy requires spiritual enlightenment in order that individuals do not devilishly lean upon their own selfish instincts, but spiritually understand that all human life must be lived in community under the reality of God, and under the concept that equal is equal, not more or less equal, else we have a dog-eat-dog environment. Democracy is for spiritually enlightened individuals as well as secularly educated individuals. This is why America has a free public educational system. Education of the masses, not just socio-economic elites. Hence, the Founders created a mass free universal educational system. In a democracy the economy is not controlled by the governmental system but is controlled by the private sector free enterprise system. Therefore, the means of production of goods and services are not controlled by the federal government, but by whatever the marketplace will bear in the private sector.

Again, because of human greed the market is controlled by whatever the market can bear (withstand), price setting greediness. The government does not set the prices for goods and services. A classic example was the corporate price-fixing of insulin, and the Biden administration was able to get the price reduced to (35) dollars. As a reminder, the governmental system is simply a taxing entity to provide military protection from external and internal threats, basic infrastructure needs such as roads, bridges, airports, and other common universal climate related
necessity needs. Unfortunately, and mistakenly out of economic ignorance when the economy experiences an economic downturn or inflation occurs based upon corporate greed, blaming the
President and the Federal Government becomes the wrong-headed economic whipping post rather than corporate sector price-fixing.

hence, an ill-informed economic misunderstanding concerning the economy creates political confusion, and political confusion creates socio-economic confusion. For example, in Biblical times Israel desired a King, because every other nation-state had a King. The Prophet Samuel told the Israelites you do not need a King, because God told Samuel how to equally divide the goods and services. However, the Israelites desired a King, because they desired corruption, and they could not corrupt God’s Prophet, Samuel. God allowed them to choose Ahab the worst King in the history of Israel.

As September 13th rolls around, we extend our warmest birthday wishes to the creative powerhouse, Tyler Perry, a man whose indomitable spirit and groundbreaking work have left an indelible mark on the world of entertainment. With his multifaceted talents as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, producer, and director, Tyler Perry has not only entertained but also inspired audiences worldwide, particularly within the African-American community, where his influence and role have been nothing short of powerful. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1969, Tyler Perry’s journey to stardom was a path riddled with adversity. Raised in a turbulent household, he found refuge in writing, using it as a therapeutic outlet. This period of introspection gave rise to one of his most iconic creations, Madea, a vivacious, no-nonsense grandmother who would later become a beloved figure in Perry’s works, offering a unique blend of humor and profound life lessons. Despite facing numerous challenges, including rejection and financial struggles, Perry’s determination and unwavering belief in his abilities propelled him forward. In 1992, he staged his first play, “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” which, although met with limited success, was a pivotal moment in his career. Unfazed by initial setbacks, Perry continued to hone his craft, and by 1998, he had successfully produced a string of stage plays that showcased his storytelling prowess.
