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.

No, Tom, being male is not a birth defect or a mental illness, it is too much testosterone put to use that harms others. Being male, meaning being a partner, one who uses his energy to protect, save, and empower others to make difficult and…Continue

What are our realities? 

Exponential population growth of Homo sapiens; 

Change of global climate with rising sea levels; 

Loss of sea ice;

Accelerated sea level rise;

Longer and more intense heat waves;

Displaced people from coastal areas creating refugees; 

Change in USDA Growing Zones; 

Shifted plant and animal ranges;

Trees flower earlier;

More frequent wildfires;

Drought for longer periods in some regions;

Increase in rainfall in some areas; 

Increase in the number, duration, and intensity of tropical storms.

Yes, changes occur beyond our ability to control. We feel helpless and hopeless. Given these grim realities, is it possible to live a healthy, full-of-wonder, peaceful life?

Grinning Cat, great cartoon! 

Patricia, serious response!

I first saw this film in 1979 while studying for my master's degree. The experiment had as its subjects young, eager college students who were randomly assigned a role of either a guard or a prisoner. The results were shocking, not only to me but to even mental health professionals. What would you do if you participated in an experiment that assigned you a role? 

How do you respond in situations where you face situations of obedience to authority?

Or waiting for gawd to extinguish it.

From comments over at Joe.My.God.:

(text over Donald Trump's face) A Trump supporter told me that he just wanted us to 'Give Trump a chance.' I told him that is like seeing a curtain catch fire in your home and thinking: 'No. Wait. Hold on a second. Let's see where this is going.'

It's the same old deal, Bertold: you can say anything you want to say with the bible ... which means it's as good as saying nothing at all.

Primatologist Frans de Waal ”explores the privileges and costs of power of the ‘alpha male’ while drawing surprising parallels between how humans and primates choose their leaders.”

De Waal’s research reveals the ”unexpected capacities of alpha males — generosity, empathy, even peacekeeping — and sheds light on the power struggles of human politicians.” 

"Someone who is big and strong and intimidates and insults everyone is not necessarily an alpha male," he is a bully.

~ Frans de Waal, primatologist

Another interesting aspect of this shock experiment on rats is that the same process was performed on dogs, cats, birds, fish, octopi, and all sentient creatures responded the same way, they began to fight each other! Humans, even though our brain cavity has grown, our understanding of the cause of the pain has not advanced beyond that of the rat. The good news is, Homo sapiens have the capacity to move beyond others of the animal kingdom; we have the ability to STOP, THINK, PLACE THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE PAIN IN THE CORRECT PLACE, AND TAKE ACTION AGAINST THE REAL CAUSE.
