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.

Re the Sinclair-mandated script:

Joan, thanks for the link to the entire script. It was much longer and more balanced than the few words reported by MSNBC.

About responses evaporating...

On my iPads, I avoid losses (due to my not paying attention to where an idle fingertip touches the screen) by doing a SELECT ALL and a COPY at intervals and before I add a comment.

I forgot to cite my last comment: 

Benefits of Renewable Energy Use

Union of Concerned Scientists: Science for a Healthy Planet and Safer World.

Jotham, I like your analysis of strategies for supporting renewable energy technology. 

Here is a site that offers the rationale for supporting renewable energy technology. 

There are so many reasons to get off the fossil fuels and to develop new technologies. Jobs offers an important reason to think about new sciences.

Further mumblings about our Founding Fathers:

Federalists: John Jay, Alexander Hamilton who authored The Federalist Papers, and James Madison who is known as "The Father of the Constitution. They supported the proposed Constitution. 

"the Federalists believed that the greatest threat to the future of the United States did not lie in the abuse of central power, but instead could be found in what they saw as the excesses of democracy as evidenced in popular disturbances like Shays' Rebellion and the pro-debtor policies of many states."

Federalists

Anti-Federalists: Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, James Monroe, were patriots of the Revolutionary War against Britain. They demanded and got a Bill of Rights. They thought the Constitution granted too much power to the federal courts, at the expense of the state and local courts. They argued that the federal courts would be too far away to provide justice to the average citizen. They thought the Federalists were aspiring aristocrats conspiring to create a powerful, remote, unresponsive central government beyond popular control.
