the invisible hand

Because what you can't see can't hurt you, right?

...About one in five Americans combine a view of God as actively engaged in daily workings of the world with an economic conservative view that opposes government regulation and champions the free market as a matter of faith.

"They say the invisible hand of the free market is really God at work," says sociologist Paul Froese, co-author of the Baylor Religion Survey, released today by Baylor University in Waco, Texas...

Perhaps the most amazing thing is the "fair-and-balanced" tone of the article, which doesn't point out that things are screwing up big time now because of widespread criminal culpability and not the will of the Hairy Thunderer.

Or maybe not so amazing.

After all, Christianity is a religion created by slaves, but re-written and controlled by their masters.

Also, I tried out "The Company" locution in a recent post (item #6), which you might enjoy.
