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.

Start with your name in the middle, then start drawing highways away from the center with things you want to do for yourself, the kinds of work you enjoy, the people you like to be with, your "mind-droppings" of thoughts, ideas, hopes, dreams, aspirations, and any other thing that seems like you might like to try. Experiment, explore, examine, question, challenge. It is your life life. You don't have another one. This is not a dress rehearsal. So, what is keeping you from starting?

QE 4: Folks, This Ain't Normal

“It will require two full years of 150,000 jobs per month just to absorb the 4 million missing workers, which means that this QE effort will be with us for a very long time.  Three to four years is my best guess, and that's only if the economy magically recovers.  And I have very strong doubts about that.

“This means that the Fed is most likely on track to increase its balance sheet by another $3-4 trillion.  Ugh.  That's 300% to 400% more money created in the next year than was created than during the entire 200 years following the signing of the Declaration of Independence.”

Marcus Aurelius, Live a good life --- in poster form 

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 11, 2012 at 2:02pm

Great thanks to John Lynch for this treasure"

"Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."
-- Marcus Aurelius
