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.

Best video clip I've seen in months. Almost conjures up hope, only to be dashed tomorrow in any case. [If I'm wrong drinx at the hat-eating ceremony are on me.]

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
