Politics, Economics, and Religion


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.

(Six men in suits at a table with microphones. Sign in background: “Republican BENGHAZI Probe”) “Hillary’s polls are down. These ‘hearings’ are working!...” “Uh-oh, Bernie Sanders’ polls are up...” (Second frame: all six smiling with a revised sign behind them: “Republican BERNghazi Probe”)

The answer is simple, Bertold:

The Republican would dither so badly about the supposedly "impossible" decision that both would be lost ... whereupon he would blame the Democrats.

Tom - P.S. A - Dump the guilt. The extent to which you still feel it is the extent to which you still believe their utter bullshit.

B - You reminded me of a cartoon by Callahan, an outrageous Portland quadriplegic cartoonist. You don't need to see the cartoon. The caption is This is a feminist bookstore. There is no humor section.

(Lest anyone take umbrage, I'm a feminist. I just happen to think humor trumps politics.)

Tom, since you're suffering from a shortage, here's some German bathroom humor. It's been (almost certainly apocryphally) attributed to Goethe.

Künstler treffen in das Loch, Stümper auf die Kanten

Gerald, sainthood and political power bestow the authority that deranged believers or realistic subjects recognise and obey.

I never mentioned political powers or realistic subjects obeying, I mentioned saints and since you have to be dead to be a saint I hardly think subjects obeying authority answers my question.

Bert, I'm okay with Oscar and you not being in this world for the purpose of airing your moral prejudices.

After 12 years in RC schools I'm still airing guilt. :)

As for humor, I'm offsprung from a bunch of Germans. In 1914 someone told a German joke. In 1937 someone told another.

"Rather than persuading"
I agree with Oscar that we are not in this world for the purpose of airing our moral predjudices. In other words, persuading is against my religious principles.

Are you plagued by a strange immunity to humor?

The cartoon below about children is from Conservapedia's version. Phyllis Schafley's (sp?) son took the socialism from the KJV.

Bert, where is Hellholes R Us?

You earned that for guilt-tripping rather than persuading!
