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 curious how far Tom Steyer's commericals to Impeach Dondld Trump have gone. 

I see commercials here in California (U.S.A).

Are they in other staters, or outside of the U.S.A.?

How much did your wealth jump last month?

Bezos, head of the online retail behemoth Amazon, saw his wealth jump by $10 billion in just the past month to now more than $90 billion. That’s a stunning leap. But what’s truly stunning is that Bezos and the next two wealthiest Americans, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, together now own more wealth than the entire bottom half of the American population combined.

I had lovely contacts in Afghanistan for several years. I learned so much about them, their desire for self-determination and peace, and even learned a bit of their history. 

All of a sudden, all contact with them stopped. I have no idea if they are able to find housing, food, and safety. This is today's report from 

Council on Foreign Relations. NOVEMBER 17, 2017.

“A new type of Alt Right Christian will become a force in the Religious Right.”

~  Richard Spencer, president of the National Policy Institute, and the alt-right's most visible spokesman

“The GOP is a white person’s populist party.”

“Trump has shown the hand of the GOP.” 

He argued during the campaign that GOP voters aren’t really motivated by Christian values, as they profess, but rather by deep racial anxieties.

~ Richard Spencer, president of the National Policy Institute, and the alt-right’s most visible spokesman.
