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.

Trump Considers Prolonging Afghan War to Secure $1 Trillion in Unta...

"The New York Times reports that Trump may have found a reason to prolong the nearly 16-year-old war: Afghanistan’s untapped mineral deposits, which could be worth nearly $1 trillion. Trump reportedly discussed Afghanistan’s vast deposits of minerals with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and is considering sending an envoy to Afghanistan to meet with mining officials."

US wars that intend to get access to another country's resources does not make any sense in this age. We don't need to put our young men and women at risk in order to create wealth for US.

Joan,

"in politics I learned that as I became personally powerful enough to trust myself I became able to trust unknown others, not counting the known 'bad guys'."

No , Joan, that was Tom who first wrote it. He was directing this question to me and encouraging me to think this trough about learning and to put in practice to trust myself.

Tom,

I thank you for this lesson....I really needed to read what you wrote.

I thought this was a secret about me but obviously it is not.

"I don't know who accepts or who declines."

Translate that to "I have no evidence as to who accepts or who declines."

And, having no evidence as to who accepts or who declines, I have no beliefs as to who accepts or who declines.

"No evidence. No belief."

Do atheists recognize that?

@Joan: Are you saying you were able to differentiate those who were worthy of trust and those who were not?

No. A dentist told me he doesn't know if patients have HIV/AIDS so he wears latex gloves with every patient. People who win elections get offers (bribes). I don't know who accepts or who declines.

Consider a sport analogy, Thomas. Learn how to swim and you will trust yourself in deep water. That's one form of personal power. Ditto for any sport.

A knowledge analogy. Study history and you will trust yourself in a discussion about history. That too is a form of personal power. Ditto for any field of knowledge.

I grew up shy and seldom spoke. Teachers had to almost pull me from my seat to read aloud. I got a degree in math and enjoyed computer programming. I married a teacher who several years later switched to sales. I went with her to a sales training and heard stuff that started me to thinking of transferring to marketing support. Knowing I would have to learn how to speak, I joined Toastmasters. My life changed for the better.

Don't stop learning.

Tom, you wrote, "in politics I learned that as I became personally powerful enough to trust myself I became able to trust unknown others, not counting the known 'bad guys'."

Are you saying you were able to differentiate those who were worthy of trust and those who were not?
