I don't know... to gather dust?

All they talk about there is why we should/shouldn't attack Iraq.

maybe such discussions can benifit from a spiritual/philosophical viewpoint.
nah..  it would just polarize the community even more. nevermind.  :tongue:

Ever hear the expression, "Religion and Politics do not mix"?

If you visit the lovely Political Forum you will see a lot of polarization as well as downright flaming and insulting.  Not only is there a place already built for those that wish to engage in such behavior but if this forum were to take on those characteristics it would make our job as moderators much harder.

I don't like to come down on anybody but this place is a sanctuary where we all speak our minds and few flame.

I would like to keep it that way. :smile:

But there is nothing wrong with discussing the philosophical basis for politics.  Examples are:

1. Is the utilitarian method a sound one?

2.  Plato thought that the State should have the ability to ban certain types os music.  What is right or wrong about this idea?

3.  Are we our brother's keeper?

Examples of what not to discuss:

1.  The Democratic Party is filled with idealist idiots.  Why is that?

2.  Dubya is better than his Dad because he is so spiritual.

3.  Hillary Clinton is a atheist that's why she is so bad.

Need I continue?

Thank you for letting this ride.  Although I want us all to learn and exchange ideas, even in heated debate, I am not for people discussing things that are off topic and apt to upset the neighborhood without contributing to the prime directive of this forum which is Spirituality and Philosophy.

We already range off the topic when we lift each other up in love if we really want to get technical.  I have no problem with that as it promotes learning about ethics from a personal basis.  Besides that, we all need a hug sometime. :smile:

Cheers,
