  1. I refuse to go to these Black Friday sales. People act like savages. Just imagine what this would have been like, had it been food for which they were fighting!


    • wow! that really puts it into perspective!


    • Ah, Lindarm, but they ARE fighting it out over food, the material food they’ve been taught to value above their spiritual food and needs! More than fifty years ago I went to a HS in Bellevue, WA state, where I was lucky enough to get into the first year college prep classes they offered to only 100 students. One such was Ethics and Philosophy; in it we were required to read the ‘The Grand Inquisitor’ chapter from Dostoevsky’s novel ‘The Brothers Karamazov’.

      In it, Christ returns to Seville during the height of the Spanish Inquisition, but shortly after astounding the people, is taken by the guards of the Grand Inquisitor to a dungeon. The next day the Grand Inquisitor comes alone to see Him, and what follows is a long monologue from that prelate, during which Christ never says a word. This is the second great silence in history, after “Whom among you is without sin?”

      The Grand Inquisitor speaks on many themes and matters, but what is central to all of it is that since Christ was crucified, we humans who came afterwards were increasingly taught to worship the material world over the spiritual world, and thus our present state.

      Dostoevsky was a passionate Russian Orthodox Christian, deeply troubled by the world he lived in: he knew his sins and saw the sinners about him as well. He correctly defined our modern age and its illness: our lack of spiritual understanding and our consequent corruption by materialism.

      What we witness today is exactly what Dostoevsky prophesied more than 120 years ago: “Give us bread in exchange for our freedom, for we cannot bear the price of responsibility!” Too many want an easy way out of our life’s trials and tribulations; when they see Christ they draw back, saying “Take Him away, I cannot be as Him, the cost is too great!”

      I really don’t intend to preach to the converted, but only share what I learned more than fifty years ago: we are here to share and bear, NOT to grab and run. If this be false, then I too am condemned as He was….


  2. LOL – They need to call it Black-eye Friday.



  3. Good grief, what is wrong with these people? (rhetorical).

    Sad state of our culture and greedy mentality…


    • Amen, sister…what an incredible clip! It wins at everything.
      I’m stealing the idea, and doing the same next year, with a PA system like the one in the Blues Brothers! Think how great it’d be if people did this everywhere…we need more zombie shaming in this country.


      • winston, you may eventually find it necessary to invest in an armored vehicle. i think mark had the element of surprise on his side, it really would make for some great fun though! but, i have to mention that i think zombies are a pretty shameless lot in general. hahaha!


  4. Thank you for this tour de force, TD.

    Materialist Consumerism: The Opiate of the Masses. I’ve never understood what must-have product is so compelling that people would camp out for days so as to be first to get their claws on the merchandise the day after Thanksgiving. But it’s gotten worse. The worse the economy is, the larger the welfare state and the more slothful Americans become, the greedier and more frenzied is Black Friday, which now has become Black Thursday and Friday.

    Michael Snyder of Activist Post calls this sickening consumerism “a shameful orgy of materialism for a morally bankrupt nation.”


    • Thanks , Dr. Eowyn. It’s hard to be at peace with a society so completely manipulated by base interests. Common sense is out the window. Well, now that Black Friday is over, it’s time for Slothful Saturday.


  5. Thank you, Trail Dust! You have documented pure and utter insanity!
