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.

ochlocracy?

Alexander Hamilton called it mob rule and made an oligarchy, which the elites and brainwashed others call "our democracy".

When other methods are about to fail, be obscure.

A political system in which a mob is the source of control; government by the masses

@Jennifer W & Daniel W

That's part of the problem with not being in a target demographic.  I'm very partisan, highly educated in the issues, and I usually make it out to my freaking municipal elections on the odd-numbered years, in addition to the primaries.

I can't be swayed on the social issues, without some major revelation about what will be beneficial for the country ... which the right doesn't have, or they would have presented the evidence sometime in the last 20-something years.  I can't be bought with appeals to my economic advantage, since I have enough that I care more about what will help our society as a whole rather than what will benefit me personally.

I can't be motivated to get out and vote, more than I already am.  The only thing that could keep me away from the polling stations, generally on the first day of early-voting, would be a major illness, and then I would vote by mail-in or whatever is available in my state.  I've never really looked into it, since it hasn't come up.

So, yeah, they have no reason to talk to me.
