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.

I came to learn about Kristi by way of my favorite YouTube dude, Steve Shives.  She may not be as prolific as Steve as it comes to video production, but when it comes to taking a topic and being utterly, scathingly on point, she shows many of the…Continue

An Atheist / Antitheist Manifesto, by Brian Dalton

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller May 22. 8 Replies

The original title of the following video was: "The Way of the Mister: Atheist Fundamentalist," but having watched it twice, I can't escape the feeling that my moniker fits as well and perhaps a bit better.  In 20 minutes and change, Brian Dalton…Continue

I know, you are sick of seeing this graph! Well, you need to pay attention to what it means. After all, you are a part of this Great Prosperity - Great Regression culture.

Back on the first page of this commentary, where the debate with the Irish president (who was foreign minister at the time) and the wingnut radio host (in a pub in Galway, only in Ireland), at the very bottom of the post is a note that the full interview can be heard at another link provided (the Irish radio station which carried the debate, twenty minutes). It puts the entire interview in context, with the American radio host tearing down all things American, and the Irish foreign minister (now President) standing up for all things American and America. That seems a bit inverted. . . .

Obama doesn't want President Bush punished for what are perceived as assasinations for a reason. The 1 million deaths you mentioned occurred in the theatre of war. A war many don't approve of but consent for that war was obtained by Congress and the U.N.

Mr. Nobel peace prize Obama however commits assasinations by drone on a regular basis in countries with and without approval and thousands of innocent people have been murdered by these drone strikes along with the intended targets.

In terms of legality, what Bush did was sanctioned war, what Obama is doing is outright murder.  If what Bush did goes to court, than what Obama is doing will definitely end up in court.  And regardless of how much people like Obama, drone strike murders would put Obama away a long time.

Did Killing Bin Laden "Heal America's Heart"?

There's is a double standard when it comes to assassination, one standard for Africans, Eastern Europeans, Arabs, Asians, and Latin Americans. They will be prosecuted for wars of aggression, war crimes, etc. 
There is another standard for Europeans and the USA who don't want to be prosecuted. President Obama believes that USA and Great Britain do not need to come to terms with the legacy of the Bush administration As a consequence of this kind of belief, Mr. Bush and his administration are responsible for up to 1 million deaths in Iraq; no reflection and no accountability occurs. When we have a situation of complete and utter impunity, where people can act without consequences it provokes the worst sort of animal spirits.

"Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalistic System was to debauch the currency. . . Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million can diagnose."

~ John Maynard Keynes, 
The Economic Consequences of the Peace, 
1920, page 235ff

Origins of Humans, via Tony Carroll 

Now, tell me honestly, which of these versions fills you with a sense of wonder, of awe, mystery, excitement, interest, desire to know more, of a sense of agency and possibility, and a feeling of wanting the very best, the healthiest, the happiest, the most productive and peaceful thinking?
