to argue about religion. But if you say that Jesus was in favor of an individualistic free society, that would be a stretch.
Assuming Bible is correct:
1. Jesus obviously did not understand how money changers operated at the Temple. That is why he became angry. Simple people at the time could not understand why one day conversion rate was different from another. Today, socialist-progressives think about Wall Street speculation (the most important instrument in a free society to form prices) as Popes and peasants thought 200 years ago.
2. If Jesus were honest and told the Apostles that he would not be back for another 2,000 years, the latter would had probably switched to another rabbi.
