Politics, Economics, and Religion


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.

Tom, I wouldn't put Gillette and Rand on the same planet, let alone the same political philosophy. When I read your comment, I kind of flinched.

Yes, I suppose they do share a philosophy. To me, Gillette has more "heart".

Spud,  a great video! I like the way Penn sorts out the issues, looks at each candidate, and I especially like his emphasis on a discussion about what we want our country to do.  

I also like the way he formulated his ideas on Trump, Clinton, Sanders, Johnson, Libertarianism, and government; I like the way he framed issues of taxes, welfare, sex, and weed. 

Thanks for sharing the excellent video.

The Penn Jillette video makes no sense to me.  It's so vague and filled with artificial scenarios.  I can't listen to a monologue that long, quit at 9 minutes.

Comment by Joseph P on Thursday

It's particularly a problem coming from someone with as much money as he has.  I think that people like him have completely lost touch with the middle class and the poor.  I'm with them on the civil-liberties side of things, but on governmental social programs and societal well-being, they just don't get it.

His example of the girl who chooses pregnancy and McDonald's over going to Stamford is particularly galling.  Those are exactly the sorts of bizarre examples that they use to represent everyone who is poor.

Is Penn Jillette's Libertarianism less sociopathic than Ayn Rand's?

Yet another cartoon nightmare scenario about the Orange One as president, considering two "presidential" (not!) options...

President Donald Trump, eyeing the two red buttons on his Oval Office desk, a shocked general looking on. The buttons are labeled 'TWEET' and 'NUKE'.

          >The entire Republican party is a good scapegoat.

Finally, a good use for them, as opposed to their usual sop of making everyone else a scapegoat.

Comment by Joseph P on August 17, 2016 at 9:40am

It sure as hell feels like that's a definite possibility, doesn't it?  He can blame it on all sorts of people afterward, too.  The entire Republican party is a good scapegoat.

Michael Moore: Trump Is Self-Sabotaging His Campaign Because He Never Really Wanted the Job in the First Place - He's running for president to get a better deal for "The Apprentice." (Alternet)

But then, he may be too big a narcissist to voluntarily step down and (in his eyes) declare himself a "LOSER!"
