As a CEO, Are You Damaging Yourself With Political Rants on Facebook?

Mike Harden | Posted 07.18.2016 | Business
Mike Harden

I have been watching in utter amazement as I see CEOs and senior level executives posting political comments on Facebook and tweeting out their support for particular candidates in this year's election. But what has truly amazed me is the level of partisanship that is being posted in the public domain.

The Alternative Banking Group of OWS

The notion that all lives really do matter--and are never, if brutalized and commodified, actually free--has some growing currency. So there is still perhaps time to grasp what it might really be like to be free, and allow that idea to change us.

Calling Sanders a "Socialist" Dismisses His Good Ideas

Cody Gough | Posted 02.05.2016 | Politics
Cody Gough

The worst moment of the entire 2016 presidential campaign was when Bernie Sanders first uttered the phrase "democratic socialist." Why?

Though I'm not a conservative, this year I have very much enjoyed listening to conservative talk radio, especially Fox News. In previous years I would not touch it. My side, this year (I switch sides every few years), does not have anything interesting to say. Well, at least not what I am interested in.

The Maccabee war of our time is happening now. It is a war over the values that will dominate our world. Only the connection between us, as one man with one heart, can put out the black fire of fundamentalist Islam threatening to overtake the world.

Can we please--finally--have a mature conversation about Islamic extremism? Over the past week a few politicians have dared speak its name. It is no longer treated like Voldemort, but we have yet to transition to a discussion about how we undermine the ideology that motivates terrorists.

The Act of Killing closes with a scene of one death squad killer retching at the site of many of the murders he committed, after playing the victim in one fictional re-enactment of their crimes - a particularly chilling reminder that ordinary people, not monsters, lie behind even the greatest atrocities in history.

Regardless of political ideology, educators must reclaim their profession. I know you don't seek attention. You just want to teach, but it's time for a PR offensive of your own. It's time for the experts to drive the narrative, and below are five ways to do that.

Opponents of the Clean Power Plan seem united in their belief that solving climate change is either unnecessary or should be very low on the list of national priorities. Their ideology remains fixed in a world of polluting energy. Fortunately for our children and grandchildren, the rest of us are moving forward.

Art Can Inspire Faith. It Can Also Empower Destructive Ideologies. Renaissance Art Depictions of Jesus Did Both

Bernard Starr | Posted 07.20.2016 | Religion
Bernard Starr

It's not surprising that artworks mirrored propaganda, since the paintings were commissioned by the Church, the biggest patron, and the wealthy, who sought to impress the Church with their devotion to Jesus and the teachings of the Church. Jesus the Jew did not fit into this illusory world.

The United States must be very careful how it formulates foreign policy involving not only these two countries but also the greater Middle East. This region is a powder keg and is no place for reckless, chest-thumping American politicians on the left and right to be tossing politically lit matches.
