Politics, Economics, and Religion


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.

@Thomas Ronald Reagan may have been "The Great Communicator," but as president, he was badly problematic:

  • He's the one who effectively invited the Religious Reich into the Republican party.
  • He implemented "Supply Side (a.k.a. "Trickle Down") economics, which has never been demonstrated to work.
  • He presided over Iran-Contra, then conveniently forgot about it.
  • Reagan was style over substance, a massive and dangerous mistake.
  • As for the "soothsayer," Nancy is the one who indulged in astrology and other woo, and that didn't help matters.

Running this country is a serious matter.  We need someone in the front office who knows what the fuck they're doing, and not someone in the public eye who doesn't know shit from Shinola.

  Is it a tradition that every U.S. president since Reagan to sign a proclamation honoring MLK Day?

 I am having difficulty finding info on this.

Why hasn't Twitter banned or suspend Donald Trump from it's site?

We know his harmful, hurtful, hateful race inciting language and yet these social medias have not suspend him.....why?

Not that I disagree with you, but someone could refute your argument by mentioning Ronald Reagan.....and I heard he had a soothsayer in his Oval Office...was that true?

"O" needs to keep her day job, & stay out of the political arena.

Pardon me, but I while I "get" the interest in Oprah running for the presidency, there is no way in hell I approve of it.  She is no more experienced in governance than Trump is.  Further, all her candidacy would do is validate the concept of celebrities running for office and further advance the idea of a presidential run as a popularity contest.  Making this country work is serious business, and it is long past time the voters recognized this.

Sixty-some-odd million voters weren't so serious last time around, and look what we got for it.

Ruth, I agree with the assessment about Oprah;  I haven't watched her for years for that reason.

"for three decades she has had a major role in encouraging Americans to abandon reason and science in favor of the wishful and imaginary."

Oprah Winfrey Helped Create Our American Fantasyland

Years ago I watch Oprah (my sister loves watching her....) and  I felt  Oprah was selling Saks Fifth Avenue version of pseudo-psychology....and I enjoyed reading Kurt Andersen article...thanks!

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on January 12, 2018 at 1:20pm

Ruth Kurt Andersen is one of my heroes. I think that Slate article is excerpted from his fabulous book Fantasyland - How America Went Haywire. That book should be required reading for every high school senior.
