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.

Christian privilege: A threat to our American values (Kristi Winters)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by tom sarbeck 25 minutes ago. 5 Replies

I came to learn about Kristi by way of my favorite YouTube dude, Steve Shives.  She may not be as prolific as Steve as it comes to video production, but when it comes to taking a topic and being utterly, scathingly on point, she shows many of the…Continue

At least some of us here on Atheist Nexus know who AronRa is.  We know that he's a great well of knowledge, who tends to dig deeply into a topic, who researches thoroughly, especially on matters which impact the relationship between the secular…Continue

An Atheist / Antitheist Manifesto, by Brian Dalton

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller May 22. 8 Replies

The original title of the following video was: "The Way of the Mister: Atheist Fundamentalist," but having watched it twice, I can't escape the feeling that my moniker fits as well and perhaps a bit better.  In 20 minutes and change, Brian Dalton…Continue

Wolff on the Charlie Rose Show - Richard D Wolff

The bad news, we have many challenges coming. The good news is, we know it, we can recognize some creative thinking about some actions that we need to take and time to start. If I/we are wrong about economy depression, climate change, and overpopulation, we will lose nothing by taking precautions. If I/we are right, we will come through the storm, a little tattered, maybe, and we will not only survive, we will flourish. 
So, to paraphrase Ruth, let's have some fun while doing it.

See which states have the most people who don't pay taxes (Red). Guess they're the 47% homeland.

You're all so serious. How about a laugh.

Mr President Barack Obama: 

I like your words and vision and the way you understand working citizens and struggles to get ahead, even as they fall back in ability to earn a living wage, even with two members of a household working. 

When You were elected, I cried with joy, just as the others in the crowd cried. I believed we were going to get out of the terrible hole we were going into. Then you announced your team and I knew I was deceived. You brought in Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Rahm Emanuel, Pete Peterson, Henry Paulson, Franklin Delano Raines, Jim Johnson, Larry Summers, Tim Geithner, Robert Rubin, and others who were all from the banking industry, all had reputations as favoring owners of property over owners of labor. 

You lost the ones that I thought were doing you good service: Van Jones and Samantha Power as well as James Galbraith, Joseph Stiglitz, Dean Baker, Robert Reich, Larry Mishel. I don't know if you ever considered Steve Keen, Chris Martenson, or other eminently qualified and well-respected progressive advisors. Not one representative of advisors interested in workers and their challenges. 

You betrayed me, Mr. President. I won't vote for that scoundrel opposing you, but I will not be fooled a second time.

Atheist Mutant, I notice you are from Akiak, Alaska. I have not been in that part of the state, but from Google Earth, it looks like it is flat with a meandering river, many ox-bow lakes and many lakes. I assume it is part of the low land of gravelly soil on the watershed of the Yukon River to Bristol Bay. You must have an interesting story to tell.

Atheist Mutant, your video shows a fascinating building process that may very well be an effective and efficient way to build housing for low income people and for earthquake zones. I am impressed with the domed structures. I really like the concept. Do you know where these houses/buildings are in present use? I'll have to make a search.  Thanks for the very good lead.

The Blacklisting of Progressive Economics

David Sirota, FEBRUARY 3, 2009

"willful ignorance, ... in what has been one long narrative arc whereby economic progressives have been deliberately shut out of top administration jobs. Just step back and think about it for a minute: Eminently qualified and well-respected progressives advisors to Obama during campaign: James Galbraith, Joseph Stiglitz, Dean Baker, Robert Reich, Paul Krugman and Larry Mishel."

Obama chose "Rubin sycophants like Larry Summers and Tim Geithner to run the economy - the same Larry Summers who pushed the repeal of the Glass-Steagal Act, the same Geithner who masterminded the kleptocratic bank bailout, the same duo whose claim to fame is their personal connections to Rubin, a disgraced Citigroup executive at the center of the current meltdown. And the list of Rubin sycophants keeps getting longer, from Peter Orszag to Jason Furman."

I wonder if anybody would sincerely mourn if the KKKoch brothers died.

Koch Brother's Wealth 1999-2011

I wonder how many of their workers lost their jobs?
