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.

Lillie, you describe the situation accurately, the Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branches of government are bought and paid for. The one person/one vote is no more. Money buys our political representatives and citizens do not have a voice. This is a sad and true reality. 

May I recommend Democracy School material 

Democracy School On-Line 

It gives you information about why and how our government works, the laws and Supreme Court judgements that molded what we have. Both political parties are caught in a trap they can't get out of, just as a bear is caught in a trap. Candidates' minds are bound by principles that work for owners of capital but suck the wealth out of the owners of labor. 

I see no future in Democrat or Republican parties ... they are both already bought. A few lone wolves exist, i.e. Bernie Sanders, but laws are written and the Supreme Court passed judgment to create a nation for owners of capital and if we cannot recognize that, we will be putting our time, money, energy, loyalty down a bottomless pit.

You state it correctly, Lillie. Money now buys Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government. 

May I suggest Democracy School material for you to read. It is a scathing indictment of our current political system.

I shall not be voting Democrat or Republican this year. They may have different names, but they are mind-bound by economic theory that guarantees Booms and Busts. There is no other option, the design of their theories have them trapped as a bear is caught and don't know how to get free. If they knew how, they would.

There are other options.

I received this email today from a Democrat supporter.  What are we going to do?  I give what I can to the President's reelection but it is a pittance compared to this.

Sheldon Adelson recently donated $10 million of his personal fortune to a super PAC supporting Mitt Romney's campaign, making him the biggest single donor to a candidate-specific super PAC and biggest donor to outside spending groups in the history of the United States.

Three upsetting things I want to say about this before I tell you that we shouldn't get upset:

     -- He's said that he's willing to go as high as $100 million to defeat Barack Obama.

    -- This kind of money could change the outcome of an election.

    -- For Sheldon Adelson, who's worth more than $20 billion, this donation is about the equivalent of $40 to a middle-class family.

Thank you, Joan, I would like to think I am an optimist but I am of an age with not much longer to live.  I am afraid there will not be many changes for the better during my lifetime.  My only hope is for the Republicans to lose control for the time being.  Maybe you can see the positive changes through.

Lillie, I think the masses listen to and believe the lies told to keep working people in line and force surrender of small businesses into mega-businesses. We are not a nation of the people any more and will not be until the masses wake up. What will that take? Well, it depends on whether one is a pessimist or an optimist. 

A pessimist things there is no hope. 

An optimist says "I will try until my death to secure the kind of nation that we once dreamed it was!" 

The sad news, USA never did live up to its vision, with slavery, attempted destruction of Native American culture, exploitation of women's paid labor, manipulation of market for the benefit of the few, and education that would not allow discussion, serious discussion of alternative political systems, and a religious community that preached the success gospel to the strong and the passive gospel to the weak and vulnerable. 

Therefore, a complex situation with many opportunities to make changes.

Obstructionism, of course, but why don't the masses see this?
