The Allegory of the Mark of the Beast: Animal Oppression & Money-Based Systems

"In the captivating enigma of Revelation, the mark of the beast echoes a profound allegory—exposing animal enslavement and money's role in socio-economic systems. David Nibert's insights unravel the truth." Michael Corthell   The Book of Revelation has captivated readers for centuries with its enigmatic and symbolic language about the end times. One of the most intriguing aspects of Revelation is the concept of the mark of the beast, which has been widely debated and interpreted in various ways. This essay will explore the contention that the mark of the beast, as described in Revelation, is a thinly veiled allegory about animal enslavement and money-based socio-economic systems. To support this assertion, we will draw from David Nibert's book * "Animal Oppression and Human Violence," which highlights the role of land ownership and the development of money-based systems in perpetuating exploitation.

What is the Global Corporatocracy?

  Global Corporatocracy   In our modern world, we find ourselves increasingly subject to the influence and control of corporate entities, giving rise to what is commonly referred to as a "corporatocracy." This system raises questions about the state of democratic governments and the apparent corruption within them. The impact of money on democracy cannot be understated. Powerful corporations possess substantial resources, enabling them to sway and manipulate government officials through bribes and lobbying efforts. Consequently, laws are often shaped to cater to corporate interests rather than the will of the people.

We Can't Sustain This

  This reality is a social disease, for people to actually gain off the misery of others and cause the destruction of our environment is obscene. Efficiency, abundance and sustainability are enemies of our current economic systems, because they are the inverse of the mechanics required to perpetuate consumption[Capitalism]. All the human misery of poverty, crime, wars and most pandemics are products of the creation, perpetuation and preservation of artificial scarcity and inefficiency. A Resource-Based Economy is nothing like any other system. They say “It’s a form of communism.” No, it’s not! Communism has warships, airplanes, bombers, poison gas, nerve gas…and all the things we have [today]. It’s nothing like any other ‘…ism’. It’s different than any culture ever tried before. ―  Jacque Fresco, The Venus Project
