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 travelled through Greece, Turkey and Crete with Riane Eisler, and then the Scandinavian countries looking at the role of women in these cultures. She developed what she calls, The Caring Economy, that reveals how a nation's economic and political nature impacts the quality of life for women. Ultimately men's quality of life changes for the better as women's quality of life improves. 

Her many books reflect her observations and determines the foundation upon which she builds her philosophy.

Thanks, Joan. After playing two Condell clips I picked up my Kindle reader and bought one of his ebooks.

My very favorite writer: 

"We think we're so advanced, don't we, especially now that science is cutting a dash through eleven dimensions, doing religion's job for it, in fact, attempting to illuminate the mystery of life rather than suppress it, but down here on the ground it might as well not be happening. Things are just the same as ever. People still worshipping dumb idols, still fearing evil spirits, still cowering under the angry heavens like a bunch of frightened cavemen. The only mystery to me is how we can look at ourselves in the mirror without laughing."

Cartoon by Matt Wuerker about the election, seen at Daily Kos: "The people* have spoken" (click to enlarge)

Another election and the nation proudly proclaims THE PEOPLE* HAVE SPOKEN / [executive hidden in wing chair, with microphone behind a HUGE megaphone speaker, labeled DARK MONEY] *The Corporate People / [man in suit at lectern with mics and slightly smaller speaker, labeled '$$$'] *The Super PAC People / [man on stepladder behind smaller megaphone speaker labeled '$'] *The Major Donor People / [woman on ground with megaphone, dwarfed by even the "small" speaker] *The People People

God is imaginary, The same old, same old, arguments keep appearing and they easily can be challenged. I especially heard it when I was diagnosed with cancer, but I heard that god would protect me, or guide me, or teach me. 

Well, it just was not true. I had to protect myself, look inward for guidance, follow my best judgment in order to solve complex problems. 

Try out these refutations of god, they are easy, interesting and sometimes challenging. They provide better guidance than any words of faith or belief, and far superior to the so called holy scriptures, practices and principles.

Financial Crime

The information exists that define the conditions that made this recent election possible. I do not agree with the trend that is taking place and I will work hard with others to get it reversed. Facts reveal the lies that started this and keep it going.

GC, if I don't laugh at the video you posted, it's for the same reason I don't laugh at Mr. Deity: it cuts entirely too close to the truth.

And while I'm at it: FUCK THEM!  I'll see you at the polls next Tuesday!

A message from the Republican Party: Please Don't Vote

They're counting on poor voter turnout to win back the Senate on November 4th, 2014. Do your part to help the GOP, and stay home.
