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.

'Debt ceiling' and defaulting on US obligations: How catastrophic would it be in your opinion?"
Michael Hudson --
"It would be like stepping on a piece of gum and having to get it off your shoe. Adam Smith said in the Wealth of Nations that no government has ever paid its debt. Nothing has changed. It would be a zero problem. People who talk like that are trying to frighten you. When a politician tries to frighten you can think of what is it that he wants me to do? How am I being manipulated... This is pure ignorance."

Michael Hudson -- on fictitious debt and manipulation of people

jingoism exists when extreme patriotism, aggressive foreign policy, threats or force against other countries occur in order to safeguard what is perceived as its national interests. When excessive bias in judging one’s own country as superior to others exists, as it has in the USA. It is extreme nationalism.

Pope will have security, immunity by remaining in the Vatican

"if the pope did move permanently to another country, living in seclusion in a monastery in his native Germany, for example, the location might become a place of pilgrimage."
