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.

Oh Okay Patricia

We're Canadians, AT.

Jotham, I hope that they will create a Fed dept. solely for the safe dissemination of free contraceptives for ALL ages, fund research into new contraceptives, financial and moral support for abortions, and sex education programs for teens. With RBE we would have all that and more...

Yes, Jotham, the PC's seem to keep trying that line, & I'll not vote for them.

Comment by Jotham Timothy Bessey on January 26, 2018 at 12:57pm

The PCs appear to be making Christian dogma an issue for the next federal election, Patricia. More precisely reproductive rights.

Thomas,

We get treated as not up to snuff, I never said the US was up to snuff.....which they aren't in our eyes.

Yes, we have our problems but I wouldn't trade Canada for the US for any reason.

Our medical care beats the US hands down.....example, 3 kids, mastectomy, ruptured appendix, lumbar laminectomy, gall stones, hip replacement, among many others & paid nothing beyond our Blue Cross monthly fees which come off Rick's pension automatically.

Prescriptions are covered 80%, until you reach a certain level based on your income, then they are free.

My 5 years of cancer meds were covered by the cancer agency.

We have gun control so shootings are seldom.

Religion is a cooler issue, & the politicals don't have it in the top priority.

Yes, we have good maple syrup.

Have you heard of hippies and the Viet Nam war?

Here's more than you probably ever wanted to know about Steppenwolf:

Born to be wild

Comment by Cane Kostovski on January 25, 2018 at 1:39pm

I'm ashamed to say I have never heard of Monster by Steppenwolf. Does it mean that the government in the 70's was plagued with religiosity like it is now? I don't think so, Today is much worse, but the people of 50 years ago didn't hear Steppenwolf's warnings. I am 51 years old and I should have heard it before but I was not one of the lucky ones. I grew up in Michigan, maybe that had something to do with it?

Speakiing of the 70s, Steppenwolf had something to say about this back then with their song Monster.

Once the religious, the hunted and weary
Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
Came to this country to build a new vision
Far from the reaches of kingdom and pope
Like good Christians, some would burn the witches
Later some got slaves to gather riches

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

And once the ties with the crown had been broken
Westward in saddle and wagon it went
And 'til the railroad linked ocean to ocean
Many the lives which had come to an end
While we bullied, stole and bought our homeland
We began the slaughter of the red man

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

The blue and gray they stomped it
They kicked it just like a dog
And when the war was over
They stuffed it just like a hog

And though the past has its share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But it's protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it's a monster and will not obey

The spirit it was freedom and justice
And its keepers seem generous and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind

'Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
Now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told

Yeah there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watchin'

Cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin' the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can't understand

We don't know how to mind our own business
'Cause the whole worlds got to be just like us
Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who's the winner, we can't pay the cost

'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into the noose
And it just sits there watching

America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now?
We can't fight alone against the monster

America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now?
We can't fight alone against the monster

America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now?
We can't fight alone against the monster

America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now?
We can't fight alone against the monster

America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now?
We can't fight alone against the monster

American is the school yard bully someone has not yet stood up to.

Well said, Jotham. That's the phrase I've been wanting since the 1970s when I started following US foreign aid policy.
