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

I'm back, with another graphic!

“Donald Trump, champion and avatar of the shallow state, has won power because HIS SUPPORTERS ARE THREATENED BY WHAT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND, AND WHAT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND IS ALMOST EVERYTHING. Indeed, from evolution to data about our economy to the science of vaccines to the threats we face in the world, THEY REJECT VAST SUBJECTS ROOTED IN FACT in order to have reality conform to their worldviews. They don’t dig for truth; they skim the media for anything that makes them feel better about themselves. TO MANY OF THEM, KNOWLEDGE IS NOT A USEFUL TOOL BUT A CUNNING BARRIER ELITES HAVE CREATED TO KEEP POWER FROM THE AVERAGE MAN AND WOMAN.” David Rothkopf, Professor of International Relations and Political Science (logo in corner: Political News Review; allcaps represent blue highlighted text)

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!

Margaret Atwood Reflects on ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’


People have said when they read The Handmaid’s Tale that it could never happen here. But the fact of the matter is it has happened here.

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.
