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.

Trial Balloon for a Coup?
Analyzing the news of the past 24 hours

. . . (4) The Guardian is reporting (heavily sourced) that the “mass resignations” of nearly all senior staff at the State Department on Thursday were not, in fact, resignations, but a purge ordered by the White House. As the diagram below (by Emily Roslin v Praze) shows, this leaves almost nobody in the entire senior staff of the State Department at this point.

. . . Combining all of these facts, we have a fairly clear picture in play.

Trump was, indeed, perfectly honest during the campaign; he intends to do everything he said, and more. This should not be reassuring to you.

The regime’s main organizational goal right now is to transfer all effective power to a tight inner circle, eliminating any possible checks from either the Federal bureaucracy, Congress, or the Courts. Departments are being reorganized or purged to effect this.

The inner circle is actively probing the means by which they can seize unchallenged power; yesterday’s moves should be read as the first part of that.

The aims of crushing various groups — Muslims, Latinos, the black and trans communities, academics, the press — are very much primary aims of the regime, and are likely to be acted on with much greater speed than was earlier suspected. The secondary aim of personal enrichment is also very much in play, and clever people will find ways to play these two goals off each other.

Yeah, you just have to hit the little x in the top right corner of your post, though.  Don't you love failed page-loads, in which the send went through properly, but you don't know that, since the receive didn't come through?

At least we have a delete function here, unlike lots of blog comment-sections.

Daniel, I enjoy using the words 'imply' and 'infer'.

Do I correctly infer that you dislike democracy?
Comment by tom sarbeck on January 30, 2017 at 1:40pm
Not at all, Daniel; I'm implying that people tell the lie "our democracy" and asking who in pluperfect hell atarted it.
Comment by tom sarbeck on January 30, 2017 at 10:46am
Who in pluperfect hell upgraded the US from Alexander Hamilton's plutocratic oligarchy to democracy?

What better describes a government of what Hamilton said were "the rich and well born"?

I got a poser for Conway: all sorts of people over on Fox were critical of Obama, yet neither he nor anyone on his staff called for the ousting of any of their personnel.  Why should Drumpf get any more slack than Barry did?

Sauce for the goose, Kellyanne...

If the Denver airport is privately owned what are the Denver police doing there?
