John W. Whitehead, head of the Rutherford Institute, "a kind of evangelical Christian civil liberties union" is an attorney and author who has written, debated and practiced widely in the area of constitutional law, social and human rights.
In his essay, Does Life Have Meaning or Are We Merely Bobbleheads in Bubbleland? Whitehead believes we have missed our purpose and the meaning to life because we didn’t listen to Martin Luther King Jr.
In April 1967, King said [W]e as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, profit motive and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.
John’s commentary: “We didn't listen then, and we still have not learned: Material things don't fill the spiritual void. People need more than possessions to give meaning to life.”

The American dream based on unrelenting consumption fueled by technological progress and economic growth must eventually die.
The U.S. economy has been untenable in this regard since at least 1980 and may soon be forced to shut down.
Even the people who have jobs are scared, and scared people don't shop. And the ones who don't have a job and are scared for sure don't shop. A quarter-century of economic growth has been wiped out worldwide in just a matter of months.
Vice President-elect Joe Biden is worried, and Obama himself refers to the current crisis as “the greatest economic challenge of our lifetime.” 
The world is engulfed in a global economic crisis of staggering ferocity.
Making matters worse, a government "by and for" the American people may not be prepared for the social dislocation, economic despair and breakdown in law and order that is likely to ensue.
Until April 5, 2013 the 1984 American science fiction-horror film, directed by John Carpenter could be streamed or downloaded from a number of websites. They Live (Full movie) was in the playlist below created by Buddy Huggins.
These days you can’t swing a cat or open your mailbox without being hit by a flood of emails about the memorials, tributes, condolences, and donation sites for the victims of these tragedies that the conspiracy theorists say were created -- not right after the event, but right before the event.
