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.

The Satanic Panic - The Witch Hunt of the Late Twentieth Century (Seth Andrews)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 15. 1 Reply

To a degree, I think the following video and talk are mislabeled.  Oh, absolutely, Seth talks at length and in detail about the "Satanic Panic," the crazed obsession some Christians had about elements of popular culture through the 1970s, 80s, and…Continue

Hmph, "The Seven Mountains of Influence!"  Why did I KNOW that R. J. Rushdoony's Dominionism was at the core of this crap?

Public/Community banks are similar to Credit Unions.

Public banks may be held in communities as a sort of commonwealth. 

The city I live has well over ?~400 million in its account that could be used for the common welfare. 

It isn't about the individual.

It's complicated so I won't be able to explain it well in a post.

To oversimplyfly it

Chris, I read about public community banks the other day. I wonder if working class people could have enough cash to put into such a bank? As the economy worsens, those who work for wagess will find their money does not go as far as it once did.... more of the same decline. 

Comment by Chris on Thursday

For what it's worth there is a movement to have public community banks.

Bert, I wasn’t thinking. Touché.

Holmes said he saw no bottom so he must have been looking up.

Century of Enslavement: The History of the Federal Reserve

The Creature from Jekyll Island

G. Edward Griffin, the author of the bestselling and a long-time Federal Reserve researcher, explains:

"G. Edward Griffin: What happened is the banks decided that since there was going to be legislation anyway to control their industry, that they wouldn’t just sit back and wait and see what happened and cross their fingers that it would be OK. They decided to do what so many cartels do today: they decided to take the lead. And they would be the ones calling for regulations and reform.

"They like the word “reform.” The American people are suckers for the word “reform.” You just put that into any corrupt piece of legislation, call it “reform” and people say “Oh, I’m all for ‘reform’,” and so they vote for it or accept it.

"So that’s what they were doing. They decided, “We will ‘reform’ our own industry.” In other words, “We will create a cartel and we will give the cartel the power of government. We’ll take our cartel agreement so we can self-regulate to our advantage and we’ll call it ‘The Federal Reserve Act.’ And then we’ll take this cartel agreement to Washington and convince those idiots there to pass it into law.”

"And that basically was the strategy. It was a brilliant strategy. Of course we see it happening all the time, certainly in our own day today we see the same thing happened in other cartelized industries. Right now we’re watching it unfold in the field of healthcare, but at that time it was banking, alright?"

Sadly, I agree that our constitution was written by lawyers and property owners to protect government of, by, and for capitalists. The general population was scammed into thinking voting existed to protect the people. The Common Man continues the struggle for freedom.

Tom, if I knew what your up and your down was, I might understand your statement.

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on Wednesday

Ruth, in 1787 a bunch of rich men wrote a constitution and made a government of, by, and for investors.

Whoever said it was of, by, and for the people lied.
