Addiction to Comfort SECRETS OF ALWAYS MAKING APPROPRIATE MORAL CHOICES? In regard to all Addictions, I find it is impossible to arrive at an objective and constant standard of truth and morality without bringing Jesus Christ onto the podium. If an important standard of truth and morality exists, it cannot be the product of the sinner, or it will not be impartial or decisive. It must be the result of a far greater Mind, that of the Christ Jesus. If a constant and unchanging truth exists, it must be beyond human timelines, or it will not be continuous, it must be everlasting. If a universal choice of right versus wrong exists, it must go beyond individual understanding, or it will not be universal. It must be above us all. However, absolute truth must be something or someone to free the addicted that is common to all humanity, and to creation. All is found in one person, and He Jesus Christ is the source of all truth. He is the secret of always making appropriate moral choices.....For in each conflict we have....positions us in charge of determining what, is the correct moral choice we can put forward? If our instant thought and or our comeback is that of self-deceptive ends justify the means, your determination is flawed. If your response may be however difficult, but you choose to preserve and improve not only your own human life, integrity and self-respect, you have chosen not to take over Gods role as Creator and Sovereignty over your conflict. Be hopeful and please God, but never partake as God. ...... RICHARD KAY

A witty, satirical take on the financial crash and the future of the banking industry, written in the persona of ultimate antihero and rogue banker Dave Hart (protagonist of David Charters' cult novels, which include Trust Me, I'm a Banker) "As an investment banker I witnessed at close hand the most expensive financial crash in modern history. The result of decades of artificially inflated prices, a bonus driven-culture based on 'me now, and I want it all,' and torrents of cheap money that we thought would last forever. I was paid millions—in some years, tens of millions. But did it make me happy? Of course it did. I loved every minute of it. Money isn't guaranteed to buy you happiness, but it sure helps. We had a hell of a party, and the rest of the world had our hangover. But was it right? This book is an exploration of what we did and why we did it and most importantly where we go next. It is not a chest-beating polemic from a former banker on a guilt trip. I don't do guilt, and anyway I'm not guilty. Do we need a new code of ethics? A different approach to the way we do business? Or should we just repackage the old one and carry on? There are no definitive answers and clearly no easy ones for an industry used to getting its own way. All I can offer is the insight of an insider and my reflections for the future. Plus my assurance that whatever happens, bankers will still come out on top. We always do." —Dave Hart
