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.

Ruth, your cartoons stand out as telling the truth, as compared to Trump's "alternative truths"! 

Alternative Truths

The huckster is up on the stage once again
Selling his snake oil and pushing his brand
His yes-men and women, they nod and they grin
As they sharpen their knives and their policy pens

His speech it rings hollow, transparent as glass
And he can't help but smirk as the power is passed
And I can't help but wonder how it happened so fast
This shell game for suckers, this crooked die cast

The crown won't rest easy on your worried brow
You're in over your head and there's no backing out 
Like a petulant child in an ill-fitting suit
You keep spinning your lies and alternative truths
Spinning your lies and alternative truths

But in twenty-four hours a new day has dawned
And with it, the women, so stalwart and strong
They marched and assembled, joined voices in song
To defend their rights and rally against wrongs

The huckster grew jealous of the crowds at his door
Over half a million strong and worldwide, millions more
Those streets were so empty just one day before
But facts are for fools and easy to ignore

Our eyes can see through you, your schemes and your plans
From the size of your crowds to the size of your hands
Like a petulant child in an ill-fitting suit
You keep spinning your lies and alternative truths
Spinning your lies and alternative truths

My sisters and brothers we've planted a seed
And together we're strong as a mighty oak tree
To fight for your birthright is the American creed
Don't let anyone tell you different

How can I explain to the willfully blind
'Patriot' is not a word only you can define
From the mountains to valleys to the voting booths
We won't buy your lies and alternative truths
We'll keep fighting your lies and alternative truths
We won't close our eyes to alternative truths

>When other methods are about to fail, be obscure.

Sounds like a polite translation of the old saying: If you can't dazzle 'em with brilliance, baffle 'em with bullshit.

ochlocracy

ORIGINlate 16th century: via French from Greek okhlokratia, from okhlos  mob + -kratia  power.

I've haven't heard of this Greek word before, okhlos, 'mob'.

ochlocracy?

Alexander Hamilton called it mob rule and made an oligarchy, which the elites and brainwashed others call "our democracy".

When other methods are about to fail, be obscure.
