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.

Aw, Joan, some nits are bigger than others. The CIA has its infamous black budget it uses to hire thugs and the gov'ment doesn't let mere taxpayers see it.

Maybe organized gov'ments do as much harm as organized religions.

Well, does it really matter if if it is the POTUS, CIA, or hired thugs, we have due process and that is what makes USA strong ... or, at least that is the mythology.

Whoops, the CIA has at least since 1953 been helping.

Earth needs leaders, ones that can bring people together for common welfare and persuade governments to stop funding weapons against defenseless people. Praying won't do it! Neither will scraps of food! Stop funding graft, corruption, liars and thieves.

Thanks Robert Riddle - "Extrajudicial executions/assassinations are being carried out by the Obama administration and U. S. military that are criminal and immoral. No matter if a legal argument is constructed to justify these means, the end is deadly wrong.

We are looking at a continuous pattern of escalating abuses of power, employing a constellation of methods, including indefinite detention, torture, increasing surveillance and extrajudicial assassinations by unmanned drones."
