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.

How do you learn to become personally powerful enough to trust yourself?

Setting us back five steps?

The idiot's tweets have made us smarter about the GOP. And the Democrats might be smart enough to choose candidates who, unlike Hillary, will connect with voters.

Tom and Joan,

   I know we can't ban his speeches. It would go against my beliefs in freedom of speech & expression.

   Tom, you are right that I do not trust certain groups of people.

  Trump speeches are doing more harm than good. Sometimes we work hard to get to the next step of improvement and yet it takes an idiot , i.e. Trump, to set us back 5 steps.

Joan, did any of your studies say distrust of unknown others is correlated with a distrust of oneself?

I ask because in politics I learned that as I became personally powerful enough to trust myself I became able to trust unknown others, not counting the known "bad guys".

First, your desire to silence Trump results from your distrust of the people who hear him.
Second, who will silence him, and how will they do it?
And third, if he were silenced, who will know how big a fool he is and vote against his GOP enablers?

tRump is dragging out nation, our culture into the sewer. Illiterate, uneducated, frustrated, angry people love his character and his remarks to the police were just plain barbarian. He will soon find that people who were cooperating with each other, start getting frustrated, start calling names, start throwing punches and others observe and take sides. Before you know it we have the Hatfields & McCoys

Given that we have a narcissistic, manipulator, exploiter, lying, personality as POTUS, what can we do?

Jeez! I don't know!

tRump supporters are not stupid. Enough of them will be negatively impacted by his behavior, perhaps they will turn away from supporting him. 

I can't imagine anyone who opposed him before will support him now. 

Perhaps we can get some clews about how to think and act from  Dr. Peter Boghossian: Changing Minds. His strategy does not work for everyone, however, it is a starting place.

Thomas, are you sure you want to start banning speach? What will happen is, you and I will be ones to be banned. 

Comment by Thomas Murray on July 29, 2017 at 2:35pm

   Trump continues to drag America down into degrading swamp with his public speeches and I am embarrassed and disgusted that the whole world is watching this fucktard spew his shit. I think everyone now know about his recent diatribe of giving police officers the go ahead to use excessive force against people. Did Trump conveniently forget what happened in Baltimore or Cleveland and other places? Is Congress (GOP) an enabler because they wont tell him to shut the hell up.


   So my question is, since Congress (GOP) wont impeach him, can a president in office be banned from giving anymore public speeches?

A good article in WAPO by Jennifer Rubin

As Trump debases the presidency, the religious right looks away

The Trump administration is a clown show — but it’s the evangelicals who supplied the tent, the red noses and the floppy shoes. Each day presents a new insult to the office of the presidency and a repudiation of civilized behavior.
. . . And if it gets worse, is there any point at which the religious might put country above tribe, morality above partisanship? No, I don’t think it will do so ever.
