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.

The Satanic Panic - The Witch Hunt of the Late Twentieth Century (Seth Andrews)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller on Wednesday. 1 Reply

To a degree, I think the following video and talk are mislabeled.  Oh, absolutely, Seth talks at length and in detail about the "Satanic Panic," the crazed obsession some Christians had about elements of popular culture through the 1970s, 80s, and…Continue

Farewell, America - Neal Gabler, [Moyers &  Co.]

Yup -- dRumpf's policy positions seem to be little more than his whims of the moment, coupled with the usual Greedy Old Party "I've got mine, screw you" taken to extremes.

Throw in, incessant, instantaneous making things up as you go along, incessant partisanship, and anomie.

The only thing I would add to that diagram would be: "Simplistic answers to complex questions."  I am so very sick of that.

The Heart of Darkness - A political Venn diagram. [Swastika with four arms labeled WHITE SUPREMACY, NATIONALIST PROPAGANDA, CORPORATE SOCIALISM, ECONOMIC INSTABILITY. At the center square of their intersection: The GOP. (ragingpencils.com - Stanfill)

Not even making believe that tRump isn't insane and dangerous, but the resulting perception that other people's ideas that usually would have been recognized as outrageously far-right are "not so outrageous".

I agree with you, Loren.

The push to "normalize" Drumpf continues, which is enormously disturbing to me.
Comment by Joseph P on December 23, 2016 at 5:16pm

The Overton Window is always a concern.  Although, in this case, I assume you mean the simple attempt to make believe that he isn't insane and dangerous.

Comment by Loren Miller on December 23, 2016 at 4:24pm

It's also a continuation of a highly disturbing pattern associated with Drumpf, yet one which doesn't seem to be upsetting anyone sufficiently to send up a flare about.  The push to "normalize" Drumpf continues, which is enormously disturbing to me.

Comment by Joseph P on December 23, 2016 at 2:29pm

Well, it's not automatically damning, but it's something that your vetting process should turn up.  I would say that you should avoid candidates who cause such major optics problems, but we are talking about Trump here.
