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.

Joan, the corollary to that toxic message that women should learn in church "in silence", not even saying "amen" to agree with the preacher, is that evidently the men are thinking with their dicks. That would explain a lot.

(And Bertold, any god who supposedly created queer people, yet wishes us dead, would be a psychopathic jerk, utterly unworthy of respect or worship.)

This guy's a real charmer. Women STFU and queers die - the message of the god of love. Oh, wait, that's Venus.

@Joan didn't Eisler write a book about sexual politics in pagan pasts. I seem to recall reading or at least consulting (for research on a particular topic) a book she wrote. Just makes common sense that improvement in the life of one benefits the life of the other sex. Shame so many in power cannot see that, frozen as they are in writings from unknown sources anywhere from the 5th century BCE to the 1s century CE. {sigh}

O lovely! What a loving religion! What will they do after killing the LGBT people? Reminds me of an old poem:

„Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Kommunist.
Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
Als sie mich holten, gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte.“[

Martin Niemöller

When the Nazis hunted communists, I said nothing, because I was no communist,

And when they locked up the social democrats, I said nothing, because I was no social democrat,

And when they came for the trade unionists, I said nothing, because I was no trade unionist,

When they came for me, there was no one left who could speak up.

This man follows the teaching of the bible, including the hatemongering. Isn't the bible supposed to be about love, care, compassion and forgiveness? Not according to bible stories!

I travelled through Greece, Turkey and Crete with Riane Eisler, and then the Scandinavian countries looking at the role of women in these cultures. She developed what she calls, The Caring Economy, that reveals how a nation's economic and political nature impacts the quality of life for women. Ultimately men's quality of life changes for the better as women's quality of life improves. 

Her many books reflect her observations and determines the foundation upon which she builds her philosophy.

Haven't seen that video Joan.  Thanks.  Two thumbs up for Pat Condell!

Thanks, Joan. After playing two Condell clips I picked up my Kindle reader and bought one of his ebooks.

My very favorite writer: 

"We think we're so advanced, don't we, especially now that science is cutting a dash through eleven dimensions, doing religion's job for it, in fact, attempting to illuminate the mystery of life rather than suppress it, but down here on the ground it might as well not be happening. Things are just the same as ever. People still worshipping dumb idols, still fearing evil spirits, still cowering under the angry heavens like a bunch of frightened cavemen. The only mystery to me is how we can look at ourselves in the mirror without laughing."
