Is There a
Place in Politics for Divine Grace?
Before you read this post, if you
are even interested in doing so, I will help you to understand my perspective
of this topic. First, I am not referring to anyone’s specific religion when I
use the word divine. Although some attributes of one’s religion may contain
elements of the divine, claiming to be religious does not mean you are aligned
with the divine in a much more universal sense as described here. It has nothing
to do with morality or judgment.

previous posts (on the Face Book page Dream Awareness Network), I

been a shining example of these detrimental emotions. This is not to say
the Democratic Party is void of them. Only that the Republican leaders
been the shining stars in the politics of fear.

S. I. Hayakawa. I heartily recommend reading this book to anyone who
desires to understand their self and the language they use and the
"news" they accept.
In light of the Current World events in Politics and the Budget/debt process in the USA, I thought I would offer a view on such happenings as they were covered in a timeless Philosophy. The following in quotes is extracted from the stated sources and is as relevant today as it was nearly 50 years ago.

The perspective from which you watch world events is vital, and it is true that communication now brings to the conscious mind a far greater barrage than ever before.
