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.

"We need a law to stop candidates needing ALOT of money to stand for office in the first place." That is exactly the way I read events. Obama received big BIG $ from corporations for his first election, and getting much less now. Obama says exactly the right words, speaks from his heart, means to be a good president, but the forces against him are way too high, our government is now an aoligarchy and will not change until and unless the people demand change. As long as there are people who believe the lies and distortions, they continue to live in denial and delude themselves. 
I wonder where Obama's economic principles lay, after all he did pump more money into rescuing the banks instead of the homeowner or students with debts. After coming into office Obama codified into law things that were counter to his rhetoric. Was it because he agreed with what he signed? or was forced to sign? or was confused? You decide:

Obama enabled a “Foreclosure Crisis that is actually the biggest transfer of wealth in the history of mankind.  It has been planned by insiders for decades, and NO insiders have been prosecuted.”



Obama to sign indefinite detention bill into law.



Obama “embraced deficit hawkery.”


Obama authorized killing Ben Laden



Obama authorized drone attacks on Afghanistan & Pakistan ... “193 drone strikes in Pakistan since 2009”.



Obama authorized support for Syrian rebels to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.



Obama enables USA to become a “surveillance state, with not only government agencies but private data miners watching and recording our lives.”

The Costs of Capitalism's Crisis: Who Will Pay?

"Austerity?" "Fiscally conservative?" both imply the people who will pay are those who produced the goods and services, not the banks and corporations that created the crisis. Sound familiar? Does it sound fair? How much more austere can you be? 

The outrage heard around the world:

Florence Jenkins massacres Mozart

I can't figure out if laughing or crying is the best remedy for Jenkins and politics.  

Thanks Chris Breman, I'm sharing.

Stiglitz: "Shocking" how Obama, Romney are avoiding housing crisis ...

Because of these and other financial reasons, I did not vote for Obama. He does not want to offend banks, and lets homeowners and their families suffer. Foreclosures that should not have happened results in gross offenses and no one has been prosecuted.

Atheism means being value-neutral with one specific claim, there is no evidence of god or gods. Atheism defines an idea, meaning and implication about ways one conducts one’s life.


Atheists and atheist organizations should not be value-neutral. I believe there is no evidence of god, that I have a right to exist and flourish, that I have a right to think and belong in a community and act to protect my rights. I am a part of a magnificent universe and am conscious of it.


I have a right to live in peace, without intrusion or imposition by others until and unless I want them to be part of my life. I welcome those who value expressing their ideas, and I want them part of my life. For those who would tell me what and how to think, who impose their values on me, and who perceive me as less-than they, I want nothing to do with them. For those who discount me, trivialize, put-down, or demonize me, there are 7,075,032,851 other human beings from whom I can choose my companions. 

Even as I claim these rights for myself, I claim them for all others as well.
