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.

Here's an interesting topic about Mid-20th Century Abortion

October 18, 2018

Mid-20th Century Abortion Access

(includes video of interview).

We spoke with historian Alicia Gutierrez-Romine of La Sierra University about abortion during the mid-20th century, especially in California. She described abortion restrictions, access to illegal abortions, costs and health risks. American History TV recorded the interview at the Western History Association annual meeting in San Antonio, Texas.

Almost rhetorical ... almost.

Trump reading 'Scary Immigrant Bedtime Stories' to Uncle Sam (America), both ignoring the giant Climate Change monster spider that's under, and literally lifting, the bed

@ Donald

Condoms  have been around  before "Rubbers"

I spoke with someone who  lived  in a  somewhat rural town.  He told me the high school students 'practicing abstenance' had the highest rate of clamedia of the  throat than anywhere  in the U.S. (at that time). 

We can go even further with anal sex as a form of birth control.

Each of which may be difficult subjects - don't think these are common practice when absenicne only is  "preached."

Comment by Donald L. Engel on December 8, 2018 at 12:59am

@Chris.  I don't know much about birth control, or family planning.  I just did a study on abortion, and the thoughts about it down through history, and the morality of abortion.  I need a break from it for right now.

@ Donald ,

I dug around and didn't see a group through the 50 some  available specific to birth control, or 'family planning.'

I don't know much about how Ning works - or Atheist Nexus impirticular.

I want to read more about  your  thoughts about the subject.

Perhaps start a discussion instead of a new group.

Comment by Donald L. Engel on December 7, 2018 at 11:41pm

@Chris.  The whole thing is written on page 3,4, and 5 of this blog.

@Chris, I agree, "they aren't invading the U.S.A. they are escaping the terrible economic and political intervention the U.S. imposed on their home country."

The terrible policies and practices imposed on those countries leave few options for the working poor, farmers, and those who cannot compete with U.S. markets. Of course, they leave their homelands and try to work in a place where they can make livings for their families. I am sure those who come to the U.S. border would rather make livings in their homelands. This is also true of the refugees around the world. If political barriers appear in their cultures that limit their financial means of production, they will leave and go where there is hope for a better life.

Donald, I very much like the long article, especially if it involves substantive material, i.e.politics, economics, abortion, and other subjects that can't be addressed in 400 words or less. I don't like them when they have to be posted on sites such as Groups; I far prefer the essay that is in one piece. A Blog is one fine option. Be sure to let us know that you have a longer piece and where you post it. I would hate to miss an article simply because I don't know it exists. 

Comment by Chris on December 7, 2018 at 9:07pm

@ Donald

From you : I've written an 11-page paper on abortion. How can I post something that big on Atheist Nexus? Or is it not possible?

Perhaps start a blog.
