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.

A quick overall impression, details come after more thorough thought. This debate was between two fighting roosters trying to show who is cock of the mountain. Shallow, banal, rehearsed, handsome puppets for a far more sinister ventriloquist. Their presentation was as deep as the water on Earth and with the express intent to dominate other countries. Proof of USA colonialism.

Labor Share of Income Drops

This volatility has been going on since the 1970s. Jobs sent off-shore, the Information Age, automation and robotization reduced demand for labor and therefore its share of income. More workers than jobs forced wages down. These factors reflect structural rather than cyclical change.

Mr President, remember the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr? Remember his boldness and power, and magic? USA needs that kind of leadership again!

Have you hear these statements in polite society?

"146,000 Christians a year are martyred worldwide." I have heard this several times. 

Paul Rosenberg stated "the real figure is almost certainly less than five a year (possibly even zero) - which would yield what I dubbed a "conservative victimology ratio" of 28,600 to one."


"voter fraud cases are rampant!"? I heard this, many times and watch the efforts to prevent voter fraud. 

Paul Rosenberg stated "similarly scarce, but conservatives imagine they number into the millions - and voter suppression in various forms actually does keep millions from voting. Using a variety of different approaches and examples, I came up with victimology ratios ranging from 30.4 million to one down to 22,010 to one."

There are those who would have atheist remain silently polite, not question assumptions, don't impose our thoughts on their beliefs. Well, when has silence ever achieved any goal? If you know dirty hands spreads disease, you speak up. If you know eating rotten food can make one sick, you say something. If you know too much candy is bad for a developing child, you take action. If you know someone uses violence to gain control of family members, you take a stand. 

Some don't like Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett,  Richard Dawkins, or AronRa, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Dan Barker, Annie Laurie Gaylor, Emma Goldman, Che Guevara, Lawrence Krauss, Paul Kurtz, Hemant Mehta, PZ Myers, Michael Newdow, Madalyn Murray O’Hair, James Randi, Julian Assange, Margaret Sanger, David Suzuki, or Steve Weinberg, just don't listen or read their materials. You have every right to not agree with them and you do not have the right to silence them.

Mat Stein, How prepared are you?

Don't be put-off by religious references, the point of his material is how to be prepared for disaster, natural or man-made.
