According to an article published by TIME 10 Turbo Charged Sectors the following are the fastest growing industries in America:
•3D Printer Manufacturing
•Hot Sauce Production
•Generic Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
•Pilates & Yoga Studios
•Self-Tanning Product Manufacturing
•Online Eyeglasses & Contact Lens Sales
•Green and Sustainable Building Construction
•Solar Panel Manufacturing
•Social Network Game Development
The very sad reality is that few of these industries have the ability to appreciably impact the Gross National Product. Jobs can ONLY be created through the private sector. Government’s only income is on the backs of the working populace, which has been seriously shrinking for years with no end in sight.
Additionally, according to a recent Global Research Project, “The ruling class policy of unlimited cash handouts for the rich coupled with sweeping reductions in social programs, mass layoffs and wage-cutting has caused social inequality to soar. By one estimate, based on the comparison of mean and median incomes, social inequality has grown four times faster under Obama than under Bush.
The wealth of America’s billionaires hit $1.2 trillion last year, more than double what it was in 2009, while workers’ wages have stagnated or declined. Between 2007 and 2012, median household income in the United States plummeted by 8.3 percent.
Obama’s response to the jobs report reflects callous indifference to growing social distress and suffering and the disconnect that exists between the entire political establishment and the concerns and needs of the people. It also tacks the views of his core social constituency—the rich and the super-rich—as registered by Friday’s rise in share values on Wall Street.”
Another sad reality is a report recently published by Barna Research Group revealing the generational trust and value of institutions as important parts of a functioning society. The survey included government, corporations, schools, marriage and organized religion.
The results indicated highest rankings as follows: Mellenials place their faith in Universities; Baby Boomers and Elders place their faith in church; with Gen X placing their highest value in church, but by a lesser percent than Boomers and Elders. When it comes to confidence in the President, Congressional Representatives and, Government in general, the survey reveals that trust and value falls off greatly for all generations.
What concerns me, since Mellineals are the next generation of leaders in America, is that they place higher trust in Universities, which are by and large liberal and humanistic. Moreover, it is the 18-29 year olds who have become recognized as the “Nones“, a description meaning they declare no particular religious affiliation.
Rev. Albert Mohler president of the Southern Baptists Theological Seminary in Louisville, responds, “Today, there’s no shame in saying you’re an unbeliever, no cultural pressure to claim a religious affiliation, no matter how remote or loose,” Mohler told USA Today. “This is a wake-up call. We have an incredible challenge ahead for committed Christians.”
Government has clearly proven that it is not the answer. But will people come to realize we need God and if so which god?
