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.

    From today's NYT:

    To the Editor:

    I am writing in support of a woman I know about. She is an immigrant, and she is from a country in which there has been much terrorism recently. I am worried that she may be sent back. Perhaps she is “undocumented.” I don’t know what that term means.

    She has no documents saying she belongs here, and she has no relatives living in the United States. She is dressed strangely, wearing only a robe. She lives in New York City, where there have been raids looking for undocumented immigrants. She probably has no criminal record.

    But if the authorities want to charge her with something, they probably can. She constantly stands in one location, so she could possibly be charged with vagrancy. Her only possessions seem to be a torch and a tablet. Her name is Liberty. I fear for the future of Liberty.

    Grinning Cat, all I got to say is:

    Just.
    Plain.
    BRILLIANT.

    On Godwin's Law, I've tread there by looking into Nazi propagandist practices and comparing to those of our Executive Branch elite and their actions.  The parallels are just too clear - especially in comparing Spicer and Conway to Goebbels.  It's almost like they are inspired by Goebbels' words.  Orwell's works could also be considered as a guidebook,  Which is weird, since those are precautionary tales.

    GC that's a great letter!
