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.

Homo sapiens evolved from Homo Erectus 200,000 years ago. All of existence was a mystery to them. They looked for and created stories to explain babies, mothers breastfed their newborn, fathers can not. The sun moves across the sky and the moon has…Continue

Perhaps I should keep my trap shut.

I know some things - not much.

IMHO, we have to identify the problems publicly. Information is the only weapon wage-workers have in the struggle against corrupt economic systems. Economics is not that complicated' there are those who speak financialeze* to confuse us. A good economist can put the facts together in a way that makes sense. 

Unfortunately, the U.S. scared the wisdom out of anything financial or political in order to confuse us and use propaganda to persuade us that nonsense is good-sense. With huge machines to dig huge holes and smart machines to make decisions, and robots to do the work of humans, we now have too many workers and not enough paying jobs. Now, what do we do?

The wage-working person should read Karl Marx 

"In bourgeois society capital is independent and has individuality, while the living person is dependent and has no individuality. Karl Marx

How does one spell financial+ease?

Joan, I 'm also outraged the way bankers get away with stealing from taxpayers, over and over. This kind of politically connected systemic rot will help to collapse civilization, along with climate destabilization.

The red Xmas trees represent the Handmaid's Tale and Melania becomes a handmaid's theocratic and dystopian Serena.

I don't think bankers of this era protect depositors' money nor are there bank regulators in place to keep a check on them. For the past  40 years wages stay stagnant while the monetary system was taken off the gold standard, a private bank prints money as fast as the wealthy want more, fiat money loses value for the working people, and inflation leaves workers with no protection from gambling-financers who goe on a spending rampage. The presidents keep us in wars that Congress does not authorize making billionaires out of the war industry. The system is rigged and that is not a statement of a crazy old lady, that is what is actually happening.

Did any bankers commit treason?

Barron’s Law Dictionary says “treason may only consist of levying war against the United States or adhering to its enemies and giving them aid and comfort”.

However, deregulation does provide opportunities for sociopaths, and American capitalism does select for sociopathy.

Consider learning from dentists, who protect themselves against HIV/AIDS by wearing latex gloves with every patient.

I think it wise to assume every politician is capable of sociopathic behavior. The only way to protect ourselves is by requiring that no law can take effect without our informed consent.

In 2016 California voters took a step in that direction by passing a ballot proposition that requires the legislature, before it takes a final vote on a bill, to post the bill on the Internet for 72 hours.

Are red xmas trees customary in Melania’s homeland?

Not the least bit attractive.
