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.

The original title of the following video was: "The Way of the Mister: Atheist Fundamentalist," but having watched it twice, I can't escape the feeling that my moniker fits as well and perhaps a bit better.  In 20 minutes and change, Brian Dalton…Continue

If "Lies, and class, serve too many purposes" then truth and fairness serve too few purposes? 

I wonder if good, solid, evidence based education would change anything?

Good luck to folk who act on Jean Paul Sartre's words (about eradicating class).

Lies, and class, serve too many purposes.

For instance, people use lies to get them some time they need.

Maybe, if I read Sartre's Dirty Hands, I'll see his context and opine differently.

Christopher Weyant on Republican strategy:

'March Madness' election strategy 'tournament bracket', Republican side filled with 'old white men', Democrats' side with 'Latinos', 'women', 'gays', 'youth', 'minorities', 'Asians', 'Blacks', 'diversity', 'moderates', etc.; two Republican elephant-men read headline: 'PRIEBUS: GOP WEAK MESSAGE NEEDS DIVERSITY'; one comments, 'I still think it just needs a few more OLD WHITE GUYS...'

"I was not the one to invent lies: they were created in a society divided by class and each of us inherited lies when we were born. It is not by refusing to lie that we will abolish lies: it is by eradicating class by any means necessary."

~ Jean Paul Sartre, Dirty Hands: act 5, scene 3. 1963

Myths prevail! Facts: Temporary jobs, dirty oil, more CO2 if burned, probable leaks, Canadian don't want pipeline on their lands, game over for climate, and cost of clean-up very high.

Women make abortion decision based on many factors, economic, political, religious, and others. Taking her right of choice away from her is to turn her into property to be managed by others.

Blacks Decimated by Wall Street Subprime Mortgage Scam: Income Disp...

"The backlash of Tea Party racists and the general Republican Southern strategy of race baiting through code words clearly has defined that this is still a nation of two visions: one of a white Christian patriarchal America with Disneyland dreams of an imaginary Main Street and the other of a multi-cultural society of equality and the celebration of national communal values.

"However, the facts on the ground reveal a deeper schism not of visions, but of a vastly unequal economic reality.

"According to the recent study cited by the WP,

"The large and growing wealth gap separating white and black families is the product of stubborn barriers that disproportionately consign African Americans to less-valuable real estate and lower-paying jobs, according to a new study.

"A long-term examination of the financial lives of black and white Americans revealed that African Americans typically face a subtle but persistent opportunity gap that has served to widen financial disparities remaining from a long history of overt discrimination, according to a report to be released Wednesday by Brandeis University’s Institute on Assets and Social Policy.

"In short, despite an outburst of bitter racial resentment after Obama's election that continues to this day, blacks are faring worse not better than in the past.  It as if the vast areas of urban blight -- where pushing drugs is often the only entrepreneurial opportunity of any livable pay (until you are shot in a turf war) -- that gave birth to the 1968 riots after Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated have been left to stagnate. In fact, they have worsened as the last of the remaining industrial and mid-to-large business base has fled these areas.
