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.

Mat Stein, How prepared are you?

Don't be put-off by religious references, the point of his material is how to be prepared for disaster, natural or man-made.

This little snatch of history from Wikipedia on Romney reveals how volatile USA laissez-faire capitalism is. 

"The Depression of 1920–21brought a collapse in prices and local building was abandoned.[26] His family returned to Salt Lake City in 1921, and while his father resumed construction, George became skilled at lath-and-plaster work.[28][29] The family was again prospering when the Great Depression hit in 1929 and ruined them.[20] George watched his parents fail financially in Idaho and Utah[30] and having to take a dozen years to pay off their debts.[31] Seeing their struggles influenced his life and business career.[29]"

"Minsky Stabilizing an Unstable Economy Complete

The current US recession has been the worst since the Great Depression, although the US economy has experienced other serious recessions in the past, particularly in the mid-1970s and early 1980s.

Since the 1970s, the US has experienced five recessions: 1973-75, 1980-82, 1990-91, 2001-03 and 2007-present. The negative impact on the economy due to the current recession dwarfs any other post-depression recessions due to several reasons. In terms of length, the longest post-depression economic decline was 16 months which occurred in both 1973-75 and 1981-82 recessions. The recession we are in now, began in December 2007 and is still ongoing with faint recoveries and relapses since then. The current recession is also more widespread with close to 86% of the industries cutting back on production supply and a collapse in GDP to the tune of 15% in just the first two quarters of the start of the recession."

We act as if we had the best education system in the world and we don't.
or medical system, and we don't
and best economic system, and we don't
and best political system, and we don't.
It is time we wake up to the reality of life in the USA
