SCIENCE (from the Latin for 'knowledge') informs wisdom, reason and humanism. This is a 4-legged worldview within reality that maximizes well-being for individuals and society.

Politics

Food for thought regarding politics:

"Without some common baseline of facts, without a willingness to admit new information and concede that your opponent might be making a fair point, and that science and reason matter, then we’re going to keep talking past each other."  ~President Barack Obama, in his farewell speech in 2017

Why I Am Not A Political Ideologue

That said, anyone who reads this blog knows, I am MUCH harsher on the Republicans than the Democrats.  The reason for this is simple:  the Republicans have been taken over both by the "Religious Right" with its unsupported dogma and resistance to evidence, as well as a general anti-science bias.  In other words, the Republicans are not a legitimate conservative counter-force to the excesses of the liberals at this time.  

One does not have to look far to see that the meme of "Reality has a liberal bias" does have a great deal of evidence in support of it, for example, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

Good examples of the Republican failure to respect evidence is the continuing promotion of the discredited dogma of  "Supply Side" economics/Laffer Curve and Climate Change Denial.

In recent decades, there has been a coaxing of the USA back to an era of unregulated capitalism.

The present economic environment seems to be devolving a century or two.

There is support for the political opinion of Democratic Socialism.

One major problem in US politics is the process of congressional districting.  This link will educate you on what has been going on to allow what we see today.
