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.

I like your cartoons, Ruth! They reflect 45's cabinet and the U.S.'s nuclear history.

[sigh] Sadly, Ruth, the difference between the cabinet pictured there and Drumpf's is so small, I doubt it's worth mentioning.

Bertold, I never saw The Handmaid's Tale start to finish, but I saw enough of it to recognize it for the potentially prescient piece that it was.  The only reason why I don't think such a future will be fully realized is because there is a sufficient number of people out there who would perceive its symptoms and call them out and those who would resist in response.

That said, would there be ENOUGH people resisting?  Good question, it shows you're interested.  If there are no other questions, class is dismissed!

George Orwell was prescient in many ways:Trump on TV, with map with a circle-slash on Russia and a heart on China: “We are allied with Eurasia and at war with East Asi-- with EURasia. We have always been at war with Eurasia. We are allied with East Asia and have...”

They left out the black-lung for the poor suckers who have been conned into trying to get those coal jobs back.  We need to specifically destroy the coal industry and then throw money at the areas that rely upon coal mining, bringing in other industries.

McConnell Tells Putin: “Lissen, Putin, you been tryin’ to screw up our democracy. We won’t stand for that. No, sir! We’re Americans. We’ll screw up our own democracy! (We don’t need help from anybody.)”(click any of these to enlarge)

Trump Coal Policy as a factory with four smokestacks belching out a thick cloud of sulfur dioxide, mercury, climate change, lead, nitrous oxide, acid rain, and ozone. Conversation inside the White House: “It looks like another gas attack on babies.” “I don’t think so. It’s not on cable TV.” (Tiny cartoonist commenting in the corner: “Our slow-acting weapon of mass destruction.”

And in the spirit of this weekend's holiday:

Kids finding Easter eggs at the White House Easter egg hunt. One girl found something else: “This isn’t an Easter egg... it’s a Titleist!” (as she holds a golf ball)
