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.

The Satanic Panic - The Witch Hunt of the Late Twentieth Century (Seth Andrews)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 15. 1 Reply

To a degree, I think the following video and talk are mislabeled.  Oh, absolutely, Seth talks at length and in detail about the "Satanic Panic," the crazed obsession some Christians had about elements of popular culture through the 1970s, 80s, and…Continue

Sounds like a great idea!

Ruth, Mike Luckovich's cartoon is a keeper. 

Patricia, our leaders need to go to boot camp for a summer of fighting fires.

Ruth - great repurposing of that classic line!

Comment by Patricia on September 1, 2017 at 3:31pm

That guy lies like a sidewalk! Why he hasn't been run out on a rail yet is beyond me.

I wish he would spend 3 or 4 months here fighting fires & still deny global warming!

Grinning Cat, your cartoons reveal the loss of our innocence and the encroachment of cynism that destroys and the kinds of love that kills.  

I long for those days of not knowing our government is corrupt and we have been fed propaganda.  

NO! I need to know, I must take effective action against such a government. 

OK, I am ready for the truth and continue to send letters, make phone calls, and stand against corruption at all levels of government.

Part 2 

Oh! Isn't this just wonderful! Betsy trains up a fine group of leaders from charter and private schools. Their training includes leadership and how to manipulate and exploit others, while public schools struggle to teach the Tree RRRs and have no funds for books, training aids, field trips. This group of under educated young men and women attempt to enter the paid labor force and all they can do is meet the time clock, do what they are told, follow directions, obey, go home, eat a meal and watch TV. 

Seems like a perfect match for training a bunch of military troops to go and fight for Erik and his minions. The uneducated bleed and die for the benefit of those folks who know what they are doing and why. A perfect education and military storm develops.
