Politics, Economics, and Religion

Religion has so many connections to political and economic beliefs, there needs to be a place to identify linkages, problems, goals, options, action plans and evaluation criteria.

What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

Koch brothers exposed

"Everything we do is within the law!"

Of course everything Koch brothers do is within the law, they wrote the laws and paid for the Congress to support their wealth, which means they took the money out of the pockets of small businesses and wage earners. These men represent the utmost in greed, theft, corruption and anti-USA values.

Melinda, Your kind words feel comforting to me; if I make sense to you, that is high reward. I would like to think that "smart" is true, however, what I write comes straight from my heart as I try to make sense out of the world and my place in it. By all means, your contributions not only prove to be insightful, but written from a compassionate heart. Your writings reveal a seeker unafraid to ask the hard questions and a willingness to shed off blinders and take risks with new ideas. I always perk up when I see you have posted something. Thank you for being part of my journey.

John, since religion came before psychology, I believe psychology often falls under the influence of religion. It wasn't psychology that freed me from the bindings of thought, it was education, then support from women who faced challenges similar to mine, and then at some point atheism provided a frame where I could state with confidence, "I see no evidence of god!" From there on, it was just the freedom to think critically.
