Revolutionary- A fundamental change in the way of thinking about or visualizing something : a change of paradigm.

Moses-

Originally, Israel’s belief in one God was not so much a statement about the “being” of God, or the exclusivity of God. Rather it was about the decisive difference of Israel’s God from all the rest.

We hear this “difference” in the first commandment given to Moses. Israel is to have no other gods besides the one who brought them out of the land of bondage (Exod. 20:2–3; Deut. 5:7; 6:14). Notice what this does not say. It does not say that there are no other gods in the world. It says instead that Israel cannot worship any of these other gods, though these gods are worshipped by the peoples around them.

When Israel claims that it must serve its God and not the Pharaoh’s gods, it is an assertion of religious liberty and at the same time a declaration of political liberation.

The command, “You shall have no other gods before me,” challenges the authority and legitimacy of every earthly kingdom because those “other gods” are the gods of empires and kingdoms. Israel’s monotheistic revolution, continued by Christianity, was a “critique and delegitimization of the political super powers of the ancient world: Egypt, Assyria, Babylonia, the Seleucid and, above all the Roman Empire.

Unlike the other gods of the Ancient Near East, the God of Moses was not content to claim primacy in a heavenly pantheon. And the Israelites who worshipped this God did not see themselves as just any people. The God proclaimed by Moses was believed to be the Creator and Lord of history.

Revolutionary- A fundamental change in the way of thinking about or visualizing something : a change of paradigm.

Jesus of Nazareth-

His teaching was revolutionary - it upset the establishment and He made them look fools in public, He went to people they were afraid to touch (eg lepers), and actually spoke to and healed Gentiles, of all people.
The scribes and Pharisees hated his parables, which always seemed to put them in the wrong.

He called the religious leaders (the Scribes, Pharisees, and Sadduccees), hypocrites. The hated and detested Roman conquerors permitted these men to keep their power and authority so long as they kept their people in line. ( A modern parallel would be with the occupying German conquerors of France using French collaborators to rule their own people, who hated them [and killed many when their German protectors left.] ) Along comes this young Rabbi who tells the crowd that they are hypocrites, blind, serpents, and vipers: not exactly tactful - they would have hated Him for it - but the crowd would have lapped it up.

The rulers plotted to kill Jesus, and you don't do this unless you are a threat to the establishment that cannot be dealt with any other way.

The establishment tried to prevent His followers of this sect with revolutionary beliefs spreading their message and getting more adherents.

Jesus proved His revolutionary doctrines and beliefs through His own resurrection from the dead . A revolution is basically where old ideas are replaced by new. In the same way, the establishment refuses to believe that they are often the cause of revolutions in the first place, and deals with revolutionaries by killing them and their followers.

In summary, Jesus had greatly upset the ruling caste, cost them a lot of money and custom, made people think, upset the status-quo, pleased the masses, stressed their hypocrisy, beat their arguments, and most of all He was always right, so He had to go. Active planning on how to set Him up and kill Him had already started a year before His arrest.

Jesus was a revolutionary in the sense that He introduced new ideas, new thoughts and ways of doing things, and upset the establishment. In that sense He was most definitely a revolutionary, and had to die.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.-

Martin Luther King, Jr.
An American Baptist minister, activist, and prominent leader in the African American civil rights movement. He is best known for being an iconic figure in the advancement of civil rights in the United States and around the world, using nonviolent methods following the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi.

King's efforts led to the 1963 March on Washington, where King delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech. There, he expanded American values to include the vision of a color blind society, and established his reputation as one of the greatest orators in American history.

In 1964, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to end racial segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other nonviolent means. By the time of his death in 1968, he had refocused his efforts on ending poverty and stopping the Vietnam War.

Dr. King often pointed out that it was Jesus' Sermon on the Mount that inspired the "dignified social action" of the civil rights movement. His notion of "creative suffering" – borne by civil rights activists who endured persecution and police brutality – came from his Christian faith in the redemptive suffering of Jesus.

Dr. King dreamed of a day when America lives up to its creed, when all people sit together at one table, and when freedom and justice reign. His famous "I have a dream" speech reaches its highest point with echoes of the prophet Isaiah: "I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low ... and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together."

King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977 and Congressional Gold Medal in 2004; Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a U.S. national holiday in 1986.

In what was to be his last speech, Dr. King drew from the biblical story of Moses: "Like anybody, I would like to live a long life ... But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain, and I've looked over, and I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land."

Mahatma Gandhi-

Mahatma Gandhi is one of the most respected leaders of modern history. A Hindu, Gandhi nevertheless admired Jesus and often quoted from the Sermon on the Mount. Once when the missionary E. Stanley Jones met with Gandhi he asked him, “Mr. Gandhi, though you quote the words of Christ often, why is that you appear to so adamantly reject becoming his follower?”

Gandhi replied, “Oh, I don’t reject your Christ. I love your Christ. It’s just that so many of you Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

Gandhi may truly be said to be the prophetic voice of the twentieth century. Violence inflicts upon its practitioners physical and spiritual wounds; the way of non-violence, said Gandhi, "blesses him who uses it and him against whom it is used. "Again, "non-violence is the law of our species as violence is the law of the brute. The spirit lies dormant in the brute and he knows no law but that of physical might. The dignity of man requires obedience to a higher law -- to the strength of the spirit

A practitioner of the non-violent way of life, far from being passive, is the most active person in the world. He is ready to join the fray -non-violently -- wherever and whenever there is injustice or wrong. He neither tolerates nor compromises with injustice, wrong, tyranny, authoritarianism, totalitarianism, dictatorship. His task in life is not to destroy the evildoer but to redeem and to convert the evildoer by love. " 'With malice toward none, with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right," he is ever ready to "bind up" humanity's "wounds," to minister to the underprivileged and to the misguided.

Use truth as your anvil, nonviolence as your hammer and anything that does not stand the test when it is brought to the anvil of truth and hammered with nonviolence, reject it.

“Work comrade, you fight with us!”

I was looking through the thousands of photos I have trying to find ones that help describe different aspects of National Socialism. I decided on this poster because it’s two birds with one stone. This poster clearly shows two vital elements of National Socialism one the workers and two the soldiers.

National Socialism and it’s success derives from the people first and foremost. The same goes for it’s faults. Both results originate from the folk. Simply put, it works if you work it and you get what you give.

National Socialism creates work, in turn the workers create more success for National Socialism. Thus allowing more opportunities to become available for both. So on and so on this process continues as National Socialism and jobs grow. One can not do anything without the other and this is called working together. The government doesn’t drain the people nor do the people drain the government, this is called working against each other. This is why the working folk are just one very important part of National Socialism.

The same goes for the armed forces too. Without a flourishing and stable homeland created by the workers, then the military has nothing to defend and no cause to serve. When the country is thriving and growing then keeping it secure is crucial and only a strong army can prevent attempts at invasion from those seeking to destroy. If and when such a threat occurs the armed forces must then spring into action ready to defend at all costs. This applies to the working folk as well for they too must readily take action to keep their military well supplied in all areas from weapons to food. Again this is called working together.

Many of the working folk also serve in the military when they are called upon to do so. Consequently, many of the military folk return to their previous trades or find new ones within the ever growing work force created by the folk.

National Socialism works with the people.

The people work with National Socialism.

The people work with the soldiers and both work with National Socialism. I think by now you can see why National Socialism is successful. It can only be so by working together.

Some sketches for critters from the Amphoran's world.
Most of these are variations on radially symmetrical herbivores, but the predator in the lower left is from one of the groups of animals that abandoned radial symmetry for bilateral - something which makes hunting and chasing a little easier.
