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.

ad hominem, in the OED:

(of an argument or reaction) arising from or appealing to the emotions and not reason.

I'm not hiding.  Just staying busy trying to maintain 1 1/2 acres of landscaping in this hot summer.  Plus I've been helping another guy build a pump house for a widow next door.

>does it not also qualify as an ad hominem?

Postscript: Violence arises from powerlessness.

— attributed to Seneca

While the remark about every practicing Catholic satisfies certain emotions related to feelings of powerlessness, does it not also qualify as an ad hominem?

—Yr goddamn Dutch Uncle whose sometimes

violent father was a practicing Catholic, made

powerless by being denied the power of

speech and by six years in an RC school.
