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.

So long as both countries are not in agreement, Neither can use much force for fear the other might step in to block them.

 Trump is not in the good books of the second of two world superpowers and half the world's population. He doesn't act like he knows that.

I also just read that scump is nuclear fascinated, & wonders why it hasn't already been used on Iraq or something.

Speaking of it being way worst than they thought it could be. Russia is upping their military might now to balance the threat that the USA poses. Good thing too because Trump makes me nervous.
We have small countries arming themselves for protection (ie North Korea) because of the covert imperial advance of the USA. Now Russia is getting nervous.

Chris, as it comes to the Parkland issue, at least, I think you now have kids who have grown up under the threat of gun violence, repeatedly realized on school and college campuses, and they've finally had enough of it.  They are the ones who are facing this potential new normal and they want no part of it.

As for the general situation, before the election, you had people asking, "How bad could it get under Trump?"  Now they're getting the answer, and it's way worse than they thought it could ever be.

It seems to me that the general mood and disposiiton of the general public has become less tollerant.   Is it because of the media's potrail of the Donald Trump reality show?

Grinning Cat, this young woman expresses the complexity of our current situation of those elected to represent the will of the people have forces pulling on them to serve their own interests and those of their supporters, big business, corporations, coal, oil, and gas industries. 

Our government and its bureaucracies become entangled in a cognitive dissonance situation of claiming to serve the people while using their powers to further their own concerns and those who fund their elections.  

It should not surprise us if public officials do not strive for the voice of the people and do whatever they wish, using their power and authority to enrich themselves and those closely associated with them. But what are their constituents to do when that happens?

Thomas Jefferson gave us the remedy from the beginning of our republic. 

1. petition those officials, either individually or as a group.

2. If the officials do not pay attention, then educate the people and make the power of the people felt at election time. Interested citizens should

A. form a coalition,  

B. identify the elected officials who do not perform properly,

C. make an issue of their inattention to the public will,

D. run candidates to oppose them on these issues in the next election, and

E. throw them out of office.

"What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?"

~ Thomas Jefferson to W. Smith, 1787.

Grinning Cat, you and Ruth do a beautiful job of educating the public!

Our epidemic of school shootings (as if one isn't one too many!) has actually inspired a new makeup line!

I did it Joan....maybe Twitter isn't so picky in Canada!

Tweeter will not publish the cartoon of Trump being screwed by Russia. 

I'll try Facebook. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 16, 2018 at 1:11am

OK! A retweet makes sense. I can do it by myself, but it would be far more effective if all 32,901 Atheist Nexus members Tweeted the cartoon of Trump being fucked by Putin. 

Anyone willing to join me?
