Politics, Economics, and Religion


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.

I'm Canadian, & many of us do feel that way, because oftentimes we get treated as not quite up to snuff with the US.

   I don't think or feel American Almighty but I am sure many Americans are patriotic to that idea. Our foreign policy is amoral and deceitful.

  I love the idea of moving to Iceland or Sweden but I was born and raised here and feel the need to fight against these religious institutions the are encroaching on my personal freedoms (or whats left of it).

That's why many of us feel its the US way, or no way, & we other countries are less than the almighty US.

Jotham, a long time back, Christopher Hitchens opined that the religions of the area about the Middle East have effective veto power over any kind of peace accord.  If I can find the exact statement, I'll put it up here.

Jotham, I agree, armies "are placed there to ensure the country obeys the rules imposed by the US."

As the US intrudes upon a people, sucking the wealth out of their country, leaving them in poverty, and then blaming them for being poor, we crush them into obedience. Sounds like a good way to make hatred of the US and resist. 

I wrote that piece very late at night and couldn't figure out how to post the reference. So, here it is:

~ Why Does Washington Hate Bashar al-Assad?

Comment by Jotham Timothy Bessey on January 24, 2018 at 6:28am

Joan, That is, of course, why the US cannot do anything about Israel's occupation of Palestinian territory. The placement of US armed forces in other countries amounts to US occupation. They are placed there to insure the country obeys the rules imposed by the US. That is the same reason Israeli troops are in Gaza.

The U.S. has no business having armies stationed all over the world. We need to trade with people, not exploit them but to find common interests. 

"The Donald Trump administration is planning to install a 30,000 strong armed “security force” in northern Syria along the borders with Turkey and Iraq." Why? What is the point?

"The United States presence in Syria is completely illegal both under international law and under the U.S. government’s War Powers Act. Syria is a sovereign state with a recognized government and there is no U.N. or Congressional mandate that permits Washington to station its soldiers, Marines, and airmen within the country’s borders."

I'm too disgusted with republicans AND democrats that I have started to tune out the torrent of bad news coming from Washington. I'm voting Green Party, but still will not be happy until we implement the RBE.

Trump Administration Creates New Religious Freedom Gestapo.

RFRA Religious Freedom Restoration Act

has been around since 1993 - the  Bill Clinton administration.

GWB used it in his Faith Based policies. Obama continued  it.

Previous administrations coddled  and nursed RFRA.

Don't blame it on Trump.

The U.S. accepted Laotians who didn't have a  written language into the U.S. because they helped during the Vietnam war. There was a lot of resistance about that.

Afghanis and Iraquis who were interperters during the recent stupid wars should be given visas as they were promised.
