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.

Richard D. Wolff | Obama's Economic Significance

"Truman's administration subsidized and shored up capitalism, worried that troops returning from war would be unemployed and slide with the economy back into depression. Truman prioritized anti-communism and punched down unions via the Taft-Hartley Act. Republican Eisenhower, the kindly grandpa, softened its veneer but sustained the program. 

"By 1960, relentless retreat from New Deal commitments had built pressures for something "really different." Americans began to grasp and resent that their "middle class" status was fading. "

***

"The crisis since 2007 exposes capitalism's instability and injustices. It revives interest in the New Deal's labor-radical coalition and its policy alternatives. Previously effective ways of stifling criticism of capitalism no longer work. The criticisms and critics are finding ways to organize effectively. Meanwhile, the conservative coalition has removed its mask. Sharpening social conflicts loom. "

A commenter on Cheezburger suggested boycotting Russian gasoline if you don't like what he's doing. Lukoil is sold in my area.

Ruth, the shame is that Putin hardly needs the sunglasses.  He's looking at a brown sky as it is!

As to campaign costs, I think the entire process has become public manipulation. There is no real information, just selling images and disinformation. We would do well to abolish the entire political ad process and get a very limited fact-checked by independent sources data base for voters to consult.
