    Why do none of the stories regarding Lively and his extremists connect his ideology with its colonial roots, and show any connection between the financial exploitation of a country like Uganda and the use of religion by the financial – and mining and other extractions – forces of the far right? It’s easy to see how the Koch brothers justify their colonial control of key industries through paternalistic religiosity, but it’s more important – if it is possible – to track how religion is controlled (sometimes consciously, sometimes unconsciously) by greed and racism. When fascists get power their use of that power usually relies on a mystical – and thereby arbitrary and not easily argued – foundation. Who is behind Lively, and how much does he take for what he gives?

    I’ve noticed on other news websites the mentioning of the Mother Jones article, like on yahoo news and so forth. And I always like commenting in their comments how BTB has been following this story more closely than Mother Jones and has been reporting about it for the last 5 years.
