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.

We Will Not Be Silent
Thanks Robert Riddle - "Extrajudicial executions/assassinations are being carried out by the Obama administration and U. S. military that are criminal and immoral. No matter if a legal argument is constructed to justify these means, the end is deadly wrong.

We are looking at a continuous pattern of escalating abuses of power, employing a constellation of methods, including indefinite detention, torture, increasing surveillance and extrajudicial assassinations by unmanned drones."

 If the Revolutionary War brought about changes from British Royalist to U.S. aristocrat, it now appears to be a U.S. corporate autocracy which enslaves citizens economically with out of control personal debt. Citizens appear like a feudal serf dressed in the style of late stage capitalism.

Guns provide no protection from such corporate theft. The enemy wears white shirts, ties, dark suits and polished shoes. They smile compassionately as they empty small business and wage labor bank accounts. 

“The false sense of power and security that guns provide only serves to keep one in bondage, by imprisoning him/her behind walls of illusion.”

It’s Good to Be a Goldman

"The invisible hand of that primitive and pure free market so celebrated in the folklore of capitalism as the essence of efficiency and productivity has been replaced by the all too visible hand of the fixer, who can combine government power and corporate profits to game the system. Yes, visible. Just observe how easily folks such as Rubin, Paulson and Johnson move through the revolving door between corporate and government power undeterred by critical media notice. And now it is Geithner’s turn."

"The planet is in dire need of a whole system ethic that produces good decisions that are good for everyone."

Agreed, but our earth has precedents: they're called mass extinctions.

I'm 82 and probably won't be here for Ma and Pa Nature's next one.

Elizabeth Dodson Gray "claims that western society has not adapted to the natural world because we have never felt we had to.

"She says that under patriarchy, the environment has been imaged as feminine. ‘Mother’ Earth’s ‘virgin’ resources have been ‘under’ us in the hierarchy, ripe for rape and exploitation. In arrogance, the prevailing attitude has been that ‘Mother’ Nature will never kill us, no matter what we do.

"Clearly, our masculine risk energy has run amok. Dodson notes that conservation energy is feminine, and we must understand how to bring balance. The planet is in dire need of a whole system ethic that produces good decisions that are good for everyone.

“[Man] thinks of himself as a creator instead of a user, and this delusion is robbing him, not only of his natural heritage, but perhaps of his future.”
