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.

    Tom, of course you are correct in your comments and to be blind to history has no utility. My uncle, a superior court judge, stated that only landowners should have the vote. I was outraged by that statement. At that time, 40 years ago, I was not able to own property unless and until I had a father, husband or son who could co-sign. And what about the black slaves that built our wonderful federal buildings, and even Monticello; they had no right to vote. Can;t forget how they perceived the native population. So, my overstatement deserves to be challenged. 

    That said, the safety nets that came after the Great Depression and WW II give protection and rights to working people. Those have been dismantled, piece by piece, over time. An erosion that is now at such a state that people have to grow up, stop being dependent on protections that are not there, and become part of the rebellion. 

    So, this con+spire concept, breath+with, is an energy that is growing as people experience the hardships created by those who do not value work and build their values on accumulation of wealth. 

    Thanks, dear friend, for the enlightened response.

    AronRa has a way with words. His link-up to form the tour, ANTI-THEISM: “The Unholy Trinity Tour”, including AronRa, Matt Dillahunty and Seth Andrews, make a formidable trinity.

    I'm reposting AronRa's gen on Twitter.
