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.

AT, I find Jotham’s explanation far more persuasive than your “It’s old, so let’s toss it.”

Comment by Cane Kostovski on February 6, 2018 at 4:22pm

Jotham. Money is at least 10,000 year old technology. It's more than time to move past it

RBE is the only sensible option.
The monetary system is a bunch of IOU notes that only serves to put a people further and further in debt with nothing to pay said debt with. Being in possession of a $5 bill means that society owes you $5 worth of products or services. More precisely, the government owes you $5 worth of products or services. We keep trading those IOU notes around, adding interest at every cycle and never getting what is owed.

A resource based economy has immediate payback, and debt don't build up. Also the owner of resources is encouraged to manage said resources in best know manner.

AT, you know your abilities far better than I.

You will decide what to do. You will decide what succeeds and what fails.

Comment by Cane Kostovski on February 6, 2018 at 12:52pm

Well, how about it, Jotham? What do you think of RBE? Waste of time, or best plan yet?

Comment by Jotham Timothy Bessey on February 6, 2018 at 12:35pm

Well, AT, survival of the fittest doesn't mean survival of the strongest. If the horse won't drink, it'll die. Not your fault if you led him there.

Chris, I read most of The Military-Industrial Complex is Ruining the Economy. It seems he has quite a lot of sources supporting what he is saying. I didn't take the time to research his sources, so take this with a grain of salt: I agree that the USA is spending far too much on the military. I bring up this point every time I hear about cuts to medicare and medicaid and social security and when people complain that NASA spends too much.  For a fraction of the Military budget, we could rebuild our infrastructure AND wipe out poverty with a guaranteed income. But fear of another terror attack is all people will hear when it comes to military spending. They seem to ignore the amount we spend on the military and look to cut spending somewhere else. It's so frustrating.
