Good could not exist without evil. The definition of good would disappear without evil.

Light does not exist without dark. Comparisons are in all definitions and concepts. Words and sounds would not exist without silence.
Religion and science come together in relativity. For every action there is a reaction. All of the previous being considered true. There is not an answer for every question.

This all occurred during the rise of communism in America which resulted in the

Communist scare that led to the Joe McCarthy era that devastated citizens and freedom. A lot of artists at that time were marginalized by the media as being sympathizers whether they were or not and vilified to the point of suicide. Most truly creative people tend to be of the socialist bent. The propaganda of fear that was used by the people in power in that day is being used today. Redistribution is what is done with taxes. It's Civics 101. But the right uses the propaganda of fear to control the simple minded easily led percentage of the populace who doesn't understand that there is more than one definition of most words in Webster's Unabridged Dictionary.

Politics and political consulting magnifies all social issues. Both in different ways. The consultant loses nothing by making the candidate lie. It's just another job.

I think I know where the GOP will take the spin of the 'Obama sides with the protestors' meme.

They refuse to walk back the idea that 'Obama loves Ambassador killers' so they're going to bring up the speeches and quotes from the beginning of the Arab Spring when the Obama administration said positive things about the people protesting Mubarak and Qaddafi. The GOP will sacrifice the good will of the Arab people who ousted dictators for democracy to try to win the election.

Obama must be reelected. It would be a major setback in human relations around the world if the bigoted societal concepts of the GOP and right wingers are allowed to take hold. It would take longer to recover from that than a the financial mega disaster George W Bush left us with.

Organized religion has done their part in instilling the fear of death to control people for

the corporations that own our world. Theocratic corporate rule is the goal. Keep the people afraid and tell them a fable that will save them then propagandize the lie that we are told by God to consume the earth and you can keep the environmentalist at bay. Most Christian religions condemn environmentalism as "earth worship" and consider the people who do that as associating with witches and sorcerers. This has been perpetrated for so long on this earth that even intelligent people are deceived.

I am not an atheist. I think that spiritual aspects of life have become a tool of subjugation use by the powerful. The awe that I experience every day when I take a breath, see a beautiful sunset or hug my children tells me there is something more to life. We only know and feel within ourselves what we believe and religion to me is personal. When I die no one will come to me and say,"Hey, can I die with you?"
