Political Theology sounds right up modern America‘s alley. Sadly, it‘s not constitutional… not that that‘s stopping anyone.

TheBookHippie Alt Right Religion is too.. the two combined on purpose would need to be dismantled. 18h
ravenlee Alt right religion and capitalism are so intertwined they are effectively the same thing @TheBookHippie - oh, I saw one of the GOP fascists (can‘t find which one, they‘re all interchangeable) celebrating the RvsW overturn talking about religious conservatives needing to divorce the party from big business. GOP splinter groups…interesting times. 17h
GingerAntics @ravenlee the GOP *is* big business. That‘s so cute. Interesting times indeed. Agree about alt right and capitalism bring effectively the same. 16h

GingerAntics @TheBookHippie I‘ve been debating if it‘s even possible to separate church and state. That‘s the only way I can see allowing people to practice the spirituality of their choice (or none at all), while still maintaining a social structure that benefits all “each according to their abilities, each according to their needs.” The religions themselves would have to change. 16h
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics It has to be kept separate or we are doomed. Not just now but long after we are gone. Or we will be Afghanistan which is basically Trump Christianity Capitalism. 16h
TheBookHippie @ravenlee Nothing shocks me. They are one in the same and who knows what these fools will do next. I cannot fathom .......ugh. 16h

TheBookHippie Yes. Community is how to avoid this. But … Also Indians understood community and so do a lot of groups that get targeted by alt right religion coincidence? I think not. 18h
ravenlee The tragedy of the commons writ large. 17h
ravenlee @TheBookHippie also the matriarchal cultures that predate warmongering patriarchies. 17h

GingerAntics @TheBookHippie @ravenlee I‘ve always wondered how people can be so divorced from basic cause and effect of their actions and how everyone just looks out for themselves, while children are constantly pestered with “don‘t be selfish.” 🙄 It‘s such hypocrisy, but now I understand where it comes from. 16h
TheBookHippie @ravenlee I JUST TOLD MY SON THIS YESTERDAY!!!! About Matriarchal society. 16h
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics ME ME ME ME ME ME ........because GOD. That's what the men say......the old white men. The WORST part for me is all the WHITE WOMEN who go along support and are even worse than the men. 16h

TheBookHippie RIGHT?! Capitalism is such inherent evil. 18h
ravenlee I just cannot understand how capitalism is supposed to be a long-term system. It‘s completely unsustainable. It requires constant expansion based on consumption with no endgame. 17h
GingerAntics @ravenlee @TheBookHippie exactly. I never thought about it before reading this book (I thought the problem was materialism and greed, but those are really the problems with capitalism) but it‘s not going to end well. Unfortunately, right now, it feels like conservatives are doubling down. 17h
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics I hope it is their last gasp of breath before death but I am thinking I won't live to see that happen...... 16h

TheBookHippie Yup. BLM marches. Ugh. 18h
ravenlee Standard procedure. 17h
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie @ravenlee yup! It almost sounded verbatim what happened when T**** wanted to take that awkward photo, awkwardly holding a Bible in front of that church. It‘s roughly the same lol cation, too. Not much changes, huh? 17h
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics nope. Nothing changes as @Ravenlee says S.O.P. 16h

Pickpick

Quite a dense, but important read. This really speaks to where we are in America right now. It leaves me with a few questions, though. I will defend your right to believe as you see fit, believe what you believe is “true, good, and just,” even if I completely disagree with those believes, even if those beliefs are not my own. It is the American way. Will you extend the same constitutional courtesy to me?
👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

GingerAntics I look like you. Would your answer be different if I didn‘t? I talk like you. Would your answer be different if I didn‘t? I fear the answer in modern America is a resounding no to the first and even more hostile to the second and third as we currently stand. #ThisLife #MartinHagglund #Philosophy #AdventuresInPhilosophy #DeadPhilosophersSociety 1d
TheBookHippie ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ALLOFTHIS. 18h
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie I can‘t believe we‘ve finished the book. I was shocked when the audiobook suddenly kicked to the credits. This one was definitely denser than Sophie. 17h
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics I am so so so glad we read it!!!! It has been a gift to us all these months. 16h

TheBookHippie Oy. It just amazes me more that people think the promise is golden paved roads and riches when they die. They missed the heaven as on earth? 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1w
TheBookHippie But no. No promised land I think we‘re backsliding at an alarming rate!!!!! 1w
ravenlee Agree with Christine. Things have gotten so much worse in the last forty years. 1w

GingerAntics @TheBookHippie @ravenlee absolutely agree with the backsliding. Since Obama took office it seems people are more than happy to be openly racist. It seems the backsliding really picked up speed at that point. 6d
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics it‘s more to me like the country is now like where I live has always been which is frightening and exhausting all at once. 6d
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie that is truly terrifying!!! 6d

GingerAntics @Chrissyreadit 🤣😂🤣🧡🧡🧡 I think this perfectly sums up my position as well. Hell, it IS my position. 1w

ravenlee No more than to protect me from cancer or other illness. No divinity has ever prevented catastrophe - and has, in fact, (if you believe the holy books) caused more than a few. 1w
Graywacke 🤦🏻‍♂️ 1w
GingerAntics @ravenlee that is absolutely a fair statement!!! There are a lot of famines and pestilence that deities have supposedly thrown at mankind. 6d
GingerAntics @Graywacke that‘s about right! 6d

Another one for #DeadPhilosophersSociety #ThisLife critiquing capitalism. Everything I read right now seems to relate to Hägglund! @GingerAntics @TheBookHippie @kspenmoll

GingerAntics I hadn‘t thought of this before, but capitalism is inherently sexist. It really is a man‘s system to benefit men, even though it actually hurts them. 1w
TheBookHippie @ravenlee I think it daily reading the news as well! 🙄 1w

For #DeadPhilosophersSociety #ThisLife peeps: “And this is what eternity means: the same thing over and over again, a tedium exciting to believers because of the illusion that it is particularly theirs.”

GingerAntics YES!!! I‘ve been seeing a lot of this in books lately. Inevitably 😏, there is always a Christian ready to wax poetic about eternity and it‘s many (supposed) merits. 2w
TheBookHippie THIS 💯. It‘s so toxic and frustrating. 2w
