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.

For what it's worth here is a link that  will show how rising sea level will effect areas.

I wonder where one can find the real estate developers and politicians when the water rises 39 inches?

Can anyone imagine investing in property, including land and a home, when the science tells them of the sea level rise.?

When I searched for a home to buy, I looked at floodplain maps. I bought a home that would not be flooded until the next ice age melts. I do live in an area that was covered in ice during the  Pleistocene Epoch that began about 2.6 million years ago and lasted until about 11,700 years ago. The city of Spokane is located in the floodplain that occurred when the ice melted.  

Jeez! who would fall for developers' claims?

North Carolina's making sea level rise findings illegal says important people in the state own property they will be unable to sell.

"If your science gives you a result you don't like, pass a law saying the result is illegal. Problem solved,"

Some words should be defined better tor public consumtoin.

A term that wasn't appropriate when I worked for the Navy was "State of the Art" That was meaninless.

It seems the objective  with 'don't use these word in writing aren't banned.  The may be have to be defined better.

Centers of Disease Control from using the words,  “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based”

What ever you do, don't write:

Evidence and Sience shows those with Entitlement prey on the vulnurable and may enjoy diversity.  Liasions with a transgerder  person may result in an  unwanted fetus

We can have a lot of fun with banned words.

By prohibiting the Centers of Disease Control from using the words,  “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based” in any official documents prepared for next year’s budget, Trump denies reality, he squanders the ability to communiate facts and figures, while he manipulates with propaganda.

Ruth, thanks for that take on cynicism.

In political talks in Arizona I was once saying idealists wanted the water situation to be better than it was while realists accepted the water situation as it was.

I needed an antonym for idealists and used cynics.

The first part of your “Cynicism is a way to avoid responsibility....” is close to my saying Arizona’s cynics, who would profit when the water situation worsened, were solving their problem by evading responsibility.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 16, 2017 at 4:50pm

Tom, I can speak to cynicism as a form of denial.

"Cynicism has already been shown in its historical development to be a form of denial with the purpose to minimize the importance of the object."

Cynicism is a way to avoid responsibility, and therefore does not serve the purpose of problem solving.

Joan, I saw the news about forbidden words at the CDC. It's right out of 1984. <eye roll> Is that a cynical response, probably. It tries to reduces and shrug off an extremely serious issue.

Trump takes a path exactly the opposite of what the Founding Fathers wanted to create. They left their homelands to create a society beyond feudalism. Sadly, the Founders did not include women, blacks, and Native Americans in their vision for a new nation even as they provided us with living principles upon which to build a more just society. 

Greed, exploitation, and propaganda becomes more concrete as conservative thinking replaces the progressive values.
