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

Ruth, knowing the past might help us predict the future, or might not.

Or, knowing that Bernie did not accept a bribe last month (Who really knows?) might, or might not, help us predict whether he will accept a bribe next month.

Welcome to politics--as it is, not as you want it.

Really, tom. The possibility of honesty in US politics is providing cover? Bernie's lifetime of public service speaks for itself.

One recent time, Joan, was when you posted s'thing about the agricultural labor force.

@ tom sarbeck, good, this is an opportunity for me to learn. You wrote, "I too enjoy being challenged to think and you occasionally do that."

Can you give me examples of when I think?

Absolute size and share of the agricultural labor force in the USA,...I have a been-there-done-that view of a lot of things. Surely, I was a child and didn't know what was happening outside my Grandmother's kitchen. However, I can remember conversations, fear, grief, anger, joy, and pride and put pieces together and to make sense of our history. I remember vividly our poor living standards and the external forces that fed much of what I remember. The Great Depression, WW II and all the men in my family but one off to build airfields and army facilities, the Cold War, and threats of nuclear attacks. There were goodbyes to loved ones during WW II, the Korean, and Viet Nam, wars and their return as changed individuals. As civilians, we sat with adults in watch for enemy aircraft until technology took over that task. 

Grown women learned how to drive during WW II and keep their bank records accurately. Our moms and grandparents served as extra workers in the business of our small town. 

We saw the labor force move from the Agriculture Sector to the Industry Sector, and now to the Service Sector.

Bert, when you stop hanging with Trump and his gang, you won't think it a low metaphor. :)
Comment by tom sarbeck on May 25, 2017 at 9:20pm
Thanks, Joan. I too enjoy being challenged to think and you occasionally do that.
Comment by Joan Denoo on May 25, 2017 at 8:39pm

Joseph, thanks for the history of news and involvement with government. The mainstream news does not cover Steven King and after listening to your videos, I can see why. RT does broadcast his material. Now I know why. How about:  

E120. Professor Steve Keen Interview - The Future of Money

I very much value your input, Joseph and agree the interesting parts are where principles and perceptions clash. I want and need that kind of participation with me.

To everyone, I am looking for investigative reporters who get beyond the propaganda stuff. Please share information with me on the people you trust.

Also, everyone, the invitation is open to have criticism of what I write and share.

I love the way Tom Sarbeck challenges me and I welcome any comments from others!

As frank as a politician. Thanks for a new low in metaphors, Tom.
