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.

Economics and Community values as to real estate owned by religious groups

I've been wondering off and on for a long time as to two inter-related (as I see it) issues: 1) evolving how people find community interaction when they want it. 2) real estate values of Churches and similar. 1) So, what I mean by the first is…Continue

The tactic of setting the economically alienated against each other is the oldest and longest con in the playbook of American oligarchy.

Bert, Pierce's  words tell us the sympathies of those who refer to America as "our democracy".

Bertold, I only know about 4chan as a forum for trolls who harass female gamers and feminists. Thanks for the heads up.

Great cartoon, Grinning Cat.

The golden-tongued Mr. Pierce strikes again:

Imagine Where We'd Be If Trump Didn't Go Bananas Every Night

Dark Forces Would Be Closing In

The tactic of setting the economically alienated against each other is the oldest and longest con in the playbook of American oligarchy. It would be even more virulent today if the Republican nominee weren't so transparently off his trolley. But it is still there in everything he says, and especially when he tries to delegitimize the election it looks very much like he's going to lose, pinning the blame on the poor and the immigrants for the purpose of inflaming white voters who have more in common with the poor and the immigrants than with a vulgar talking yam who craps in a solid-gold commode.

Grinning Cat, I like the Economist cartoon. Thanks!

GC - Well, lies are no problem for Trumpanzees, and neither are contradictions.

Thanks, Bertold, for sharing that!

George Takei: An Open Letter to America’s Young Voters


The acclaimed actor and activist writes about how our youth can lead the U.S. to a brighter, more tolerant future post-Trump.

[entire letter here]

Over the last 16 months, we collectively watched the tone of this campaign descend, from uncivil to outrageous to outright dangerous. Mr. Trump has played cynically to our darkest instincts, and he’s done much to draw us farther apart politically—even those within his own party. The forces he has rallied, and the sentiments he has stirred, are likely to infect our public discourse well past this election. He has led us down a course from which many worry we cannot readily turn back.

So, "Mexicans are rapists," wasn't a racist remark?

Besides, we already know that there's a whole lot of footage of him saying a variety of anti-African-American racial slurs on the set of The Apprentice.  It's just a question of who has leaked it to the Democrats, and when the Democrats will put it out there.

Will the tRump-worshippers' attempt at poisoning the well work beyond their bubble?

Alt right trolls planning a stroke of fakery to get Donald off the hook.

#MediasNextTrumpLie: Inside 4chan's pro-Trump spam campaign to derail the media

[from Tech.mic]

If you see #MediasNextTrumpLie trending on Twitter Friday, remember that "trending" is not synonymous with "fact-based."
4chan's /pol/ forum — a favorite hangout for anti-PC, Donald Trump-worshipping, alt-right internet trolls — is campaigning to get this hashtag trending, starting at noon Eastern. It's a response to an unsubstantiated rumor started in /pol/ that another bombshell Trump video is about to be released — this time, supposedly, featuring the Republican presidential nominee saying "a racist remark." #MediasNextTrumpLie is meant to derail the conversation and counter the news industry's supposed anti-Trump bias.
