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.

BTW, this rings true for our current Republican administration:

THE PRESS: “WE JUST DISCOVERED THAT RUSSIA MAY CONTROL THE WHITE HOUSE, PERHAPS EVEN THE COUNTRY.” REPUBLICANS: “YES, WE ARE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT HOW YOU FOUND OUT.”

Aw, Loren, he's pandering. He wants to be re-elected. That's evidence of either insanity or inability to do any kind of work.

Damn.  Bertold, that "prayer patrol" business is bluntly INSANE.

Ruth, knowing the past might help us predict the future, or might not.

Or, knowing that Bernie did not accept a bribe last month (Who really knows?) might, or might not, help us predict whether he will accept a bribe next month.

Welcome to politics--as it is, not as you want it.

Really, tom. The possibility of honesty in US politics is providing cover? Bernie's lifetime of public service speaks for itself.

One recent time, Joan, was when you posted s'thing about the agricultural labor force.

@ tom sarbeck, good, this is an opportunity for me to learn. You wrote, "I too enjoy being challenged to think and you occasionally do that."

Can you give me examples of when I think?

Absolute size and share of the agricultural labor force in the USA,...I have a been-there-done-that view of a lot of things. Surely, I was a child and didn't know what was happening outside my Grandmother's kitchen. However, I can remember conversations, fear, grief, anger, joy, and pride and put pieces together and to make sense of our history. I remember vividly our poor living standards and the external forces that fed much of what I remember. The Great Depression, WW II and all the men in my family but one off to build airfields and army facilities, the Cold War, and threats of nuclear attacks. There were goodbyes to loved ones during WW II, the Korean, and Viet Nam, wars and their return as changed individuals. As civilians, we sat with adults in watch for enemy aircraft until technology took over that task. 

Grown women learned how to drive during WW II and keep their bank records accurately. Our moms and grandparents served as extra workers in the business of our small town. 

We saw the labor force move from the Agriculture Sector to the Industry Sector, and now to the Service Sector.
