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.

Enough is Enough! We have been in wars since WW II ended and they chew up lives and cultures as if they were raw meat in the middle of a pack of wolves. We could be a nation that teaches cooperation, teamwork, community action. Even our games are…Continue

Bumpy ride.

Donald Trump declaring before applauding legislators, 'THE STATE OF OUR UNION IS STRONG!' He's actually in the Russian Parliament, with a Russian flag barely visible to our left. (The tiny cartoonist in the margin remarks, 'And they're not tired of winning!')

Couple sitting at a table with coffee and newspapers: “We should just use our thoughts and prayers to protect our borders, like we use them to protect our schools.”

No author was listed on the site I copied it from, but that seems to be the right one.

I'm trying to track down the author of the piece about "Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?". This is what I found so far:

Thanks for the linked article, Bertold.

But conservatives, both voters and party, believe and assert so much that is disconnected from reality that it’s painful to listen to. These people hold so many incorrect claims to be true that I fear for their personal safety and the safety of those who depend on them. Yet they manage to make a living, get married, garner approval and status in society, buy nice things, and get ahead.

It’s hard to think of a time in history when such a large group has been so privileged for so long in their ability to be completely and absurdly wrong about so many things and yet succeed. They have so much power and influence globally, and they are squandering it because they have no adherence to empirical reality.

As I see it the temporary success of absurdly-wrong conservatives is a symptom of fossil fuel civilization collapse. Fossil fuel industry corporations and the corrupt individuals feeding from them are parasites, fattening by sucking the planet and future dry. These interests found fundamentalist and racist communities easily manipulated tools for their oligarchic takeover. How else could we be induced into collective ecocide without unmooring from reality?

Who is Trump leading?

About 40 years ago a sociologist reported that:

- about 16% of Americans are ‘hard’ authoritarians, and

- about 16% are ‘soft’ authoritarians.

Often through the years since then, I’ve seen conservative policies supported by at least 33% of Americans.
