"Spiritual wants and instincts are as various in the human family as are physical appetites, complexions, and features, and a man is only at his best, morally, when he is equipped with the religious garment whose color and shape and size most nicely accommodate themselves to the spiritual complexion, angularities, and stature of the individual who wears it."

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

i don't know all the setails, but, essentially, someone advertised "for the benefit of the public" that this company - my harvest america - was offering to send giftcards to 'subscribers' for more than the amount they sent in. essentially, the first month you took a small loss, which you more than recouped the following month, and you continued to get more than you paid each subsequent month. i don't know how long this went on for, but people haven't received their gift cards for at least three months now (i know someone who 'subscribed' three months ago, so that's all i know about it), and it has been exposed as a scam - for all those who weren't tipped off by the 'something for nothing' hallmark. the link i provided is a perfect example of twisted thinking, where the publicizer of this scam insists that it wasn't a scam, and explains why.

exactly. or, it's not a scam because a lot of people made money on it.
