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.

    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.

    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."

    Donald Trump. Jeb Bush. Scott Walker. Mike Huckabee. Ben Carson. Ted Cruz. Marco Rubio. Rand Paul. Chris Christie. John Kasich?
