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.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

“For nearly four years you have had an Administration which instead of twirling its thumbs has rolled up its sleeves. We will keep our sleeves rolled up. We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace--business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering. They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.”

Thanks for the link, Joan. I had already read parts of The Shock Doctrine, but it's a lesson that has to be repeated a few times...

"Do you think that, if you were granted omnipotence and omniscience and millions of years in which to perfect your world, you could produce nothing better than the Ku Klux Klan or the Fascists?”

~ Bertrand Russell, "Why I am not a Christian."

Ingersoll disputes the account of creation in bible’s Genesis story; it  is "inconsistent with all known facts, and every star shining in the heavens testifies that its author was an uninspired barbarian.”

~ Robert Green Ingersoll, Why I Am Agnostic
