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.

Don't mean to boast, but we've been on top for a long time! When is the rest of the world going to follow our example? :D

Chris, thanks for the map. It shows us which empire will next fall.

This link may be better for showing the map of U.S. military bases.

Where in the World Is the U.S. Military?

Riane Eisler’s dominators don’t go away when they have been exposed. They lie low for a while.

Joan, if school history were not a collection of lies, students would know that in economics and politics sociopathy is lthe default condition.

Parents who do not socialize their children produce people like Donald Trump.

Map of overseas U.S. military bases.

Go figure, the Pentagon overlooked this obvious security breach.

The experts banned Furbys, but allow individuals to wear unsecure tracking devices.

The group a few years ago also ignored important information.

At upper levels political appointees are servants of the system and president rather than professional civil servants.

Colin Powell's address to the U.N. about Iraq's WMD was shamefull. How does that guy live with himself?

War is the continuation of politics by other means.

— Karl von Clausewitz,

Diplomacy is the continuation of war by other means.

— Zhou Enlai.

Overheard long ago, Joan. Diplomacy is the art of talking and then leaving before anyone understands what you said.

What Happened to the Art of Diplomacy?

”Today we in the West face new and traditional threats around the world: 

Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula and started a military crisis in Eastern Ukraine. 

China expands its territory and sphere of influence in the East and South China Seas by building artificial islands. 

North Korea quickly become a nuclear threat, and it has been on a politico-military rampage making threats to South Korea, Japan and even the United States. 

The Taliban marches forward in Afghanistan. 

Syria and Libya lie in shambles, 

NATO tries to make a U-turn and refocus on “real defense.” 

The European Union beame infested with a new “East-West” divide in addition to the pre-existing “North-South” split. 

”There are good reasons to ask, ”What has gone wrong after the Cold War ended and we were supposed to have overcome divisions and adversarial relations as the fuel of international politics?”
