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.

I've been wondering off and on for a long time as to two inter-related (as I see it) issues: 1) evolving how people find community interaction when they want it. 2) real estate values of Churches and similar. 1) So, what I mean by the first is…Continue

Joan - "weapons of mass distraction" - great expression I've never heard before.

Hell, you've heard about their attempt to dismantle the Office of Congressional Ethics, right?  Nothing shady about that, huh?

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on January 4, 2017 at 9:12pm

It's something less than irony, but something more than self-fulfilling prophecy. The Republicans have pushed bullshit for years about the government being the enemy, and now they're going to make it true.

Daniel, TV shows exist to be weapons of mass distraction. 

Grinning Cat, a perfect metaphor for US current affairs.

Man in the passenger cabin of an airliner: “These smug pilots have lost touch with regular passengers like us. Who thinks I should fly the plane?” His fellow passengers all have their hands raised approvingly.

(from the New Yorkervia Ben Taub on Twitter)

Loren, I picked that up on Twitter. There's a hashtag urging the President or Congress or the Supreme Court or someone to #DisqualifyTrump, not let him serve even one day as president. (Also, #unPOTUS, #TinyFingeredPuppet, #NotMyPresident, #theResistance, and more. Maybe a more avid and aware Twitterer can clue me in about the most useful hashtags about this effort to deny the Denier-In-Chief / Kleptocrat-in-Chief / Bigot-in-Chief / Twit-in-Chief the Oval Office.)

Well, at least we're finally rid of McCrory.  The governor gets sworn in at midnight on January 1st over here.

Joy-Ann Reid with a hopeful message from The Daily Beast

A-List’s Trump Snub Hits Him Where It Hurts
Ultimately, denying Trump and Trumpism the cultural approval they crave is an important statement.

Ultimately, denying Trump and Trumpism the cultural cosign they crave is an important statement. It does what so far, the collective media have been unable or unwilling to do: rejecting the normalization of the utterly abnormal. It tells not just the country, but the world, that Trumpism may have a hold on our politics, but it doesn’t have a hold on us. America’s ascendant majority will not so easily slink off into that good night, and will not quietly ingest what Trump has foisted on the electorate.
