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.

Loren, when a "belief system has no basis in fact, the entirety of its structure" should "become the target of questions and doubts."

Bertold, ironic, is it not, that Christians fight a war against Christmas, if for different reasons than pagans fight. I like Valerie's statement, 

"Fortunately, for almost 500 years, Christian critics of Christmas have offered an alternative view, one that is rather beautiful, even though they themselves regard it darkly. It is the view that our mid-winter celebration reflects, more than anything, the Pagan and universal yearning to embrace hope in the dead of winter, our impulse to celebrate with abandon the return of light and the promise that spring—and new life—will come again.

Good stuff, Bertold, which should surprise no one.  I mean, when your belief system has no basis in fact, the entirety of its structure can and does become the target of questions and doubts.

Spud, that tape on robot calls, it is funny, accurate and outrageous. I like the responses. 

My goodness, the Trump University lawsuits should get his attention. I wonder if he will begin to think as a mentally healthy, mature, adult. 

"In 2013, my office sued Donald Trump for swindling thousands of innocent Americans out of ​millions of dollars through a scheme known as Trump University. Donald Trump fought us every step of the way, filing baseless charges and fruitless appeals and refusing to settle for even modest amounts of compensation for the victims of his phony university. Today, that all changes. Today's $25 million settlement agreement is a stunning reversal by Donald Trump and a major victory for the over 6,000 victims of his fraudulent university."
