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.

Poverty Has Always Accompanied Capitalism

Capitalism usually overthrew its predecessor system (often feudalism, sometimes slavery or still others) violently and accompanied by slogans of "freedom" as in the French revolution's "liberte, egalite, fraternite" or Lincoln's "Emancipation…Continue

Relevant to the Hobby Lobby ruling:

Bosses should not be able to impose their religious beliefs on their employees. [with exterior of US Supreme Court building](from The Reprimand Project -- "common sense messages to level the playing field as the GOP wages its legislative wars on Constitutional rights and law-abiding citizens.")

Toggling between CBS Sunday Morning and ABC News This Week, I caught an interesting commercial - PROMOTING KOCH INDUSTRIES!!!  I'm going to take a guess and say that the Kochs have finally figured out that a healthy portion of the general public have discovered that they exist ... and may not be too happy about that either.  So now Koch Industries is doing some happy-happy / joy-joy feel-good commercials on Sunday morning television.

It should go without saying that I hope they don't work!

A little something which my daily dose of the Daily Kos offered me today:

Harvard Business Review calls bullshit on today's "capitalists"

I think the saving grace here is that:

  1. Elon Musk has enough money that he can pretty much do as he pleases and
  2. He seems to want to do some genuine good with his bread ... unlike the Adelson - Koch jackasses.

As to the business about his patents, I've been discussing that among other topics on a car board for the past week or so, and the overall impression of the participants appears to be largely positive.

Re the resistance of some state governments to allow Tesla to sell cars:

It reminds me of the reports I heard in San Francisco of GM's buying up transit systems and closing them in order to sell more automobiles.

American capitalism is so efficient.

You recall correctly, Tom ... which is why I don't give the Washington Times a whole lot of cred ... any more than I gave Ronny.

Tesla is opening up its patents.  The world would all benefit from a common, rapidly-evolving technology platform," Musk said. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/small-business/latest-n...

As I recall, the Wash Times is the Moonies' newspaper.

Comment by Grinning Cat on June 10, 2014 at 12:46am

A bit of a tangent:

A Washington Times online poll finds most respondents saying that Ronald Reagan, if he were still alive, would have aligned himself with the Tea Party!

(Of course, Washington Times readers are a decidedly conservative self-selecting sample!)

Much depends on definitions, so until someone demands different definitions, my anger-driven radical is further to the left and my fear-driven reactionary is further to the right.

Which costs more lives, "sustainable" or "self-extermination"?

I see an imbalance there.
