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.

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?

This is the best put-down of an obnoxious talk radio host ever.
