The Zeitgeist is a German word which means the prevailing winds of public opinion.
At present the Zeitgeist in the Western World is controlled by corporate plutocrats and media moguls who have turned us hard and tough. Whatever happens we must work harder.
Whenever a serious crime is committed they scream: "Burn in Hell!" or "Rot in jail forever!"
It would seem that no criminal should ever be released from jail.
This is a direct contradiction of God's Reconciling Will.
God tells us to visit those in prison and to pray for them.
God tells us to forgive.
God tells us to reform and be reconciled to the community.
This is God's mercy acting in our world.
We would do well to follow suit.
