TCR Thesis #12 - DIME

The book of first Samuel indicates that God did not want a king over Israel.  Diplomatic intermarriage (Diplomatic and Information - marketing power), horses (Military power), and gold (Economic power), were early methods of gaining central state power (DIME), each of which God said not to do in Israel.  So, God wants weak centralized state power in leadership, military and the banking system, keeping power as locally distributed as possible.  Some intelligence agencies and police/military seek to simulate God’s omniscience and omnipotence.  Large scale suffering, starvation and death is most often caused by mistakes of central leadership and their wars.
