Science and religion why the political conflict?
Science and religion why the political conflict? Science and religion can co-exist There seems to be such conflict, especially at the extremes of various belief systems, that science and religion are in opposition, so you can not consider both valid. Reading a fictional book by Raymond Khoury called The Sign, a fictional thriller with a complex plot that involves manipulation of religious fervor by use of a futuristic, and rather unlikely, scientific invention; the suggestion that religious fundamentalists do not accept science in any way is brought to the fore. So let us consider both and how politics gets involved.

Do not rush evolution
Do not rush evolution. Will we hurry to oblivion? Planet earth has, so the astrophysicists tell us, about a billion years of life left in her, a thousand million years before the sun cooks everything.

Secrecy of labor unions and capitalist bankers
Secrecy of Labor unions and capitalist bankers The two main controllers of all economic activity are too secretive. Both labor and capital are too important to be left just to their own structures.

If we are to have democratic government, then surly we need open democracy within the two main levers of economy. We are all so interdependent in the the modern time, that the economy affects and to a degree, controls us all. Having elected government without any form of democratic control over these twin pillars of economic activity, is detrimental to democracy itself.
