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.

Sorry, my computer continues to have an echo; i.e. a restatement of a statement I copied; i.e. Ruth's statement is an echo:

"I'm trying to convince people that we need to rewrite articles of incorporation so the entities we invented can't privatize profits and socialize costs in the future."

It appears my response to Ruth about the debate did not get published. 

Ruth, I agree that "trying to convince people that we need to rewrite articles of incorporation so the entities we invented can't privatize profits and socialize costs in the future" is a far better use of time than watching Sye Ten Bruggencate give a demonstration of the impact of dogma on some. A closed mind yields us no freedom.

Perhaps there are no answers to the problem of global warming, sea rise, and all the other features facing us. However, It seems clear to me that humans can make interventions that will create food and shelter for all Earth's inhabitants, humans & other species. 

Our northwestern forests dry up as we discuss options. The once great Colville Forest, where I am moving, offers some possibilities for reforestation; I will give it my best shot. I may be naive about being able to restore moisture to the soils, but all I can do is try. 

We will be getting off the grid as soon as we can; we have the greenhouse constructed and will spend the rest of the summer getting the grow beds built, supplied with growing soils, an autumn crop started, and go into winter with high hopes. 

I'm trying to convince people that we need to rewrite articles of incorporation so the entities we invented can't privatize profits and socialize costs in the future.

We keep imaging a silver bullet remedy for all the social and economic problems on the table. Ideological ideas are too dogmatic no matter how sincere the motives are that underpins them. The real problem lies in the fact that while nobody knows the answers everybody thinks they do.

Sorry, Joan. No time for a 2 hour debate.

I'm trying to convince people that we need to rewrite articles of incorporation so the entities we invented can't privatize profits and socialize costs in the future.

"America's industry/government complex privatizes the profits and socializes the costs."

This is true and is what balloons the income gap between rich and poor. Why the voting public does not understand this is amazing to me. 

This denial matches the denial of those who would proselytize all the people of the Earth. 

I watched a video debate of Matt Dillahunty vs. Sye Ten Bruggencate. It was so funny/painful to watch because I, and I assume others of you, have been with someone with these beliefs. 

America's industry/government complex privatizes the profits and socializes the costs.

The Clinton "GOP (not a) Scientist" commercial is hilarious!  The question of course is:

Will anyone actually RUN it?!?

...the costs generated by the fossil fuel industries far outweigh their revenues.

America's industry/government complex privatizes the profits and socializes the costs.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on August 3, 2015 at 9:37pm
In a classic example of locked-in, yet perverse economics, recent research from the Judge Business School at Cambridge University confirmed earlier analysis suggesting that the costs generated by the fossil fuel industries far outweigh their revenues. [emphasis mine]


Our environmental deficit is now beyond nature’s ability to regenerate
