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.

According to OpenSecrets, Clinton ended up taking only about $20,000 less from oil and gas interests than her Republican opponent who claimed climate change is a Chinese hoax. What good is believing in science if you pad your pockets with donations from those actively opposed to it?

Bertold, your "Apostolic Reformists and Dominionists: Emboldened by Trump, the Dangerously Devout Prowl DC" piece gives me shivers. The end of republicanism as we hoped it would become if we don't speak out and take action, now!

About forty years ago I read that 16% of Americans are “hard authoritarians” and another 16% are “soft authoritarians”.

I’m inclined to believe it because I’ve seen so many conservative ballot propositions get about 32% of the vote and fail.

This is, alas, nothing new, but alarming nonetheless--

Apostolic Reformists and Dominionists: Emboldened by Trump, the Dangerously Devout Prowl DC


  • An influential pack of Dominionist predatory proselytizing worship wolves was howling in Trump's DC hotel February 22-24 2018; the pack's fanatical leaders believe "God sent" Trump to the White House.
  • These New Apostolic Reformists (NAR) see themselves as modern day missionaries, archaic crusaders and apostles, clamoring to spread their exclusivist and weaponized version of Christianity to the world, whether invited to or not. The radical fringe "New Apostolic Reformation" aims to create a dominating and totalitarian empire within Christendom. Al Jazeera once called NAR, "America's Own Taliban."

So long as both countries are not in agreement, Neither can use much force for fear the other might step in to block them.

 Trump is not in the good books of the second of two world superpowers and half the world's population. He doesn't act like he knows that.

I also just read that scump is nuclear fascinated, & wonders why it hasn't already been used on Iraq or something.

Speaking of it being way worst than they thought it could be. Russia is upping their military might now to balance the threat that the USA poses. Good thing too because Trump makes me nervous.
We have small countries arming themselves for protection (ie North Korea) because of the covert imperial advance of the USA. Now Russia is getting nervous.

Chris, as it comes to the Parkland issue, at least, I think you now have kids who have grown up under the threat of gun violence, repeatedly realized on school and college campuses, and they've finally had enough of it.  They are the ones who are facing this potential new normal and they want no part of it.

As for the general situation, before the election, you had people asking, "How bad could it get under Trump?"  Now they're getting the answer, and it's way worse than they thought it could ever be.
