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.

This just out from Catholic Vote:

An interview with a high-level national Planned Parenthood employee coldly discussing sale of fetal body parts as business as usual.

So I wonder how this will pan out.

Why do I have the strangest feeling that if this story were legit it would be breaking in at least the grocery store tabloids, if not in more respectable publications.

The free enterprise system we hear so much about has been a subsidy enterprise system at least since adoption of the 1787 constitution.

Evidence?

The agreement in the Convention to redeem at face value rather than at market value the paper that entitled Revolutionary War veterans to land. Speculators had paid needy veterans a fraction of the paper's value.

"... $10 million a minute is how much the world’s governments are spending to subsidize the burning of coal, oil, and natural gas."

World Governments Subsidize the Burning of Fossil Fuels to the Tune...

They are still at it, Bertold, but they had different pictures in the fifties. I still like Doré's steel engravings...

  • And now these people have the Internet and e-books to push their evil dogma.

Bertold, do we any longer have to ask where America's violence originates?

We too have the internet and e-books. We outnumber those sick and depraved people and can use the internet and e-books to expose them.

We evolutionists know that natural selection is wasteful. Given the statistics on miscarriages, natural selection might be more wasteful than religion. It's far more wasteful than that version of Puritanism.

It IS brilliant!  And I'm halfway through rereading Fortunate Son for the 3rd or 4th time.  Makes me want to take the entire Bush family out and shoot them before they reproduce some more .  But they aren't the only ones....

A great comic about deserved wealth.

Ruth, the graph tells an interesting story. I wonder what the family income was for people those years? I'll have to see if I can find out.

Tom, thanks for the book lead,  Petr Kropotkin, in Mutual Aid; a factor in evolution. I downloaded it. My goodness, he has a lot of references. It will be a fun one to read.
