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.

Tom & Joseph, you come from different points of view. I wonder, do you have thoughts in common? Perhaps, war destroys, bullets create problems, domineering leadership presents an inferior form of leadership.

Joseph, thanks for the information about RT. Very interesting  bits of Russian PR history. 

Loren, I agree that all the US and any other nation's news casts contain bias. That is the rub. The hunt ends up finding a writer that makes sense and then see what he/she has to say. 

Do you have particular reporters/writers that you read on a regular basis?

I will paraphrase an old favorite, Loren.

I do objectivity, you do subjectivity, s/he do crap.

Joseph, I just do everything wrong, don't I?

Comment by Loren Miller on May 24, 2017 at 4:30pm

I've watched enough RT to recognize that it is no better than Fox News (and possibly worse) as regards anything resembling objectivity or integrity in reportage ... and I will have nothing to do with it.

Tom, you're comparing the functioning of random media outlets to top-down influence of a government-funded media outlet in an authoritarian near-dictatorship.  RT was set up with the explicit mission of countering the proposed anti-Russian bias of western media, while funded by the Russian government.  The propagandistic potential is built into it from the start.

The American media was cheer-leading a bit at the start of the two current wars, yes.  Then, they turned on the administration, once it became clear that the pretenses for the Iraq war were fraudulent.  That isn't government-controlled propaganda.

And what does a press secretary saying that the government has a right to lie to its people have to do with anything under discussion?  You're introducing red herrings like crazy, man.

I just received notice my mailbox is full and messages to me bounce back to the author.   Sorry if I didn't receive your recent mail. I'm working on cleaning out my mailbox.

Potential? 

Comment by tom sarbeck on May 23, 2017 at 10:43pm
More generally, Americans (and people everywhere) who don't see political leaders as potential predators have deafened and blinded themselves. Or, as party loyalists, hope to someday share the plunder.

It was a White House press secretary who in 1968-69 declared on TV that the governnment (those in the government) have a right to lie to the people.
