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.

This link may be better for showing the map of U.S. military bases.

Where in the World Is the U.S. Military?

Riane Eisler’s dominators don’t go away when they have been exposed. They lie low for a while.

Joan, if school history were not a collection of lies, students would know that in economics and politics sociopathy is lthe default condition.

Parents who do not socialize their children produce people like Donald Trump.

Map of overseas U.S. military bases.

Go figure, the Pentagon overlooked this obvious security breach.

The experts banned Furbys, but allow individuals to wear unsecure tracking devices.

The group a few years ago also ignored important information.

At upper levels political appointees are servants of the system and president rather than professional civil servants.

Colin Powell's address to the U.N. about Iraq's WMD was shamefull. How does that guy live with himself?

War is the continuation of politics by other means.

Diplomacy is the continuation of war by other means.

Overheard long ago, Joan. Diplomacy is the art of talking and then leaving before anyone understands what you said.

What Happened to the Art of Diplomacy?

”Today we in the West face new and traditional threats around the world: 

Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula and started a military crisis in Eastern Ukraine. 

China expands its territory and sphere of influence in the East and South China Seas by building artificial islands. 

North Korea quickly become a nuclear threat, and it has been on a politico-military rampage making threats to South Korea, Japan and even the United States. 

The Taliban marches forward in Afghanistan. 

Syria and Libya lie in shambles, 

NATO tries to make a U-turn and refocus on “real defense.” 

The European Union beame infested with a new “East-West” divide in addition to the pre-existing “North-South” split. 

”There are good reasons to ask, ”What has gone wrong after the Cold War ended and we were supposed to have overcome divisions and adversarial relations as the fuel of international politics?”

2015: Where in the World Is the U.S. Military? "Despite recently closing hundreds of bases in Iraq and Afghanistan, the United States still maintains nearly 800 military bases in more than 70 countries and territories abroad—from giant 'Little Americas' to small radar facilities. Britain, France, and Russia, by contrast, have about 30 foreign bases combined."

2018: Where in the World Is the U.S. Military? Everywhere"As we enter the 17th year of the United States' 'war on terror,' it is both appropriate, and necessary, to take stock of where our troops are located and for what purpose."

If we had leadership that valued cooperation instead of competition, negotiation instead of confusion and distraction, perhaps we would no longer have the need for U.S. military in so many other nations. What is beneficial for U.S.'s ends may not be applicable for others. When the U.S. drains resources out of other countries leaving them impoverished, conflict and war logically follow. 

I don't like inviting conflict; I believe in using the skills necessary for conflict resolution. No one loses, everyone gives up something, no one gets all he or she wants.

The Nunes memo is to Watergate as "Ishtar" is to "Lawrence of Arabia."

The President’s hostility to evidence-based policy has not made the state of the union stronger, safer or prouder
