Personal Sovereignty

Steve Quillian is a leader in the historic window restoration industry

The fact that you have influence over others doesn’t imply your personal sovereignty.

Compliance is a virtue when you are a slave

If you have no sovereignty, then its alright to cave.

The idea of personal sovereignty is the idea of self ownership and the natural right to choose control over one’s own destiny.  Some words that are synonymous with sovereignty are autonomous, independent, liberty, free, unfettered, self-deterministic.

Schuyler Brown said, “What sovereignty seems to offer is choice; or liberation from automatic response.”  I like that.  However I’d modify that to say that what sovereignty seems to be is a freedom, a choice, a liberation from a prodded response. Continue reading

Politics Is All Animal Behavior

April 6,2019

Download PDF Version

With Fantasy Free Economics I teach how to live and survive outside the herd.

What is the nature of animal behavior? It is not so much that animals do not think. Their decisions are made automatically. When animals live in groups, they have a leader and all have tasks they perform according to their status in the group. Herd positioning is determined by dominance and subservience. Each animal constantly attempts to get maximum benefits by virtue of being a member of the group.

Human beings think constantly and come up with brilliant thoughts and ideas. However Continue reading

The Leveling Has Begun

It takes big tools to make quick work of leveling Americans into one class.

Americans have just now completed the first wave of leveling – flattening the hills, raising the valleys, evening everything out.  Cast down the industrious, elevate the sluggish. Everyone will be equal but the equalizers (and the prison guards).  Who are these equalizers?  These are the ones who generate phrases to assimilate into the general consciousness, like “essential services” and “frontline worker.”  You will never know who these people are.  You are forbidden to ask, to assume they even exist.  The question is removed as it is being asked, cut off, censored.  You can wonder aloud with your verbal search for clarity, sounding the ideas off others to gauge their reactions and see what they think, but your genuine request for debate is cut off.  There is no debate, for there is no question. Continue reading

A High IQ Does Not Mean Not Stupid PDF Version

justice-ruth-bader-ginsburgHere are some of Ginsburg’s remarks that caused the controversy. Notice that in all of her comments there is not one fact. I take that back, she did say that there is nothing in the constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year. Continue reading

Social Media Mind Cleanse

By Steve Quillian

We spend enormous amounts of time and energy consuming information.  It’s like taking a continual inward breath.  But we need to exhale also.  We need to pour out that which is within us, to a degree at least equal to, if not greater than the information we breathe in.  

We also need to be intentional about the information we take in.  Take books for example.  We intentionally choose a book, read and absorb.  This is totally different than how we take in information through social media.  Television was bad enough.  Ah yes.  We look at it with our eyes and read as we would a book.  We watch a video the same as we’d watch a television show we selected.  We, with our eyes, look at the natural world around us and learn.   Continue reading

Part 2 Affirmative Stock Market Engineering War Room

Part 2 Affirmative Stock Market Engineering War Room PDF Version

It is really hard to convince folks that there is something going on in a system given when  they already see and know  everything  and are convinced they have noticed all that matters. The truth is none of us have critical information at important moments.

Conventional wisdom is that the Federal Reserve creates massive unearned money and that money ends up in the stock market. Corporations use that money to buy back their own stock. Therefore the stock market always goes up. The stock market will go up until this particular episode comes to the end. 

That line of reason happens to be true but there is more to it. There are other mechanisms in operations that are in place which are of even greater influence. Continue reading

Presidunce Of The United States

Presidunce Of The United States PDF Version

Suppose Joe Biden winds up being elected president.  Are there any upsides to having a president with dementia? Perhaps there is, maybe.

His title could become Presidunce of the United States instead of President of the United states. Think of the entertainment that would provide Americans of all ages. Comedians would have a field day,

A cardboard cutout could be put in the president’s chair in the oval office. The country might discover that a cardboard cutout of a president is just as effective as an actual human being. Continue reading

The American Mindset, The Election and The Stock Market

The American Mindset PDF Version

The stock market is being elevated by any means possible. The method is sophisticated. I  have explained in an earlier article how the ALGOs carry out management of the market level over all, averages and individual stocks. Their profit comes from skimming and the sabotaging of unwitting large and small traders as well as hedge funds. Basically, the Deep State is the stock market. A bear market will destroy the power structure of the world. Can a stock market crash be prevented? Yes, but for that to happen, the Deep State must be extremely lucky. and they are indeed prone to good luck. The Corona Virus is the only shock they have  have experienced in all of the years this has been going on. Chances are that the market will crash. However, for a stock market to remain permanently in a bull trend when an entire economy collapses is close to impossible. Chances better that we will see martial law imposed and selling not allowed, than there is that all markets will continue moving higher. For sure, the Deep Stated will find some way to save themselves by changing public policy.

American Mindset

Politics is dominated by two groups, right and left. Both are consumed with maladaptive behavior. Neither the left nor the right has ever gotten anything  net from government. They never will. Government does not do those things, although belief is that they eventually will.

Voters describe themselves with lofty terms. We have patriots on the right and progressives on the left. Democrats embrace Marxist style socialism. Republicans embrace modern socialism and they love Donald Trump for guiding them in that direction. They call it capitalism. There are no free market voters. There are no free market candidates.

There are two basic ways to distribute resources in an economy. There is price and there is political power. With Marxist style socialism, who gets the most depends upon who has the most political power. The same is true of modern socialism With classic socialism no one comes out ahead other than those at the very top. With modern socialism, the rich lobby for more government spending, that transfers income from the bottom to the top. Everyone loses in the end regardless. Voters are good with one system or the other. Modern socialism is already entrenched and has killed the economy off at the bottom. The misery will climb the income ladder until all are destroyed.

Who will voters vote for? It really doesn’t matter because each side only hears words. What do voters want? While hollering slogans like “We The People” or “Make America great again Trump supporters are gleefully promoting their own poverty while pointing fingers at the other side. In every presidential race I have followed, no winner has ever done anything that has helped his supporters. The 2020 election will not be any different.

What oo folks want? Mostly they want a leader who will make life’s most important decisions for them. No voter or politician has even suggested cutting spending or closing government agencies.

Politics is not a a game where the larger thinking brain is disengaged. That brain is for interpreting poetry or doing math. Politics is an animal brain activity. When it starts, the thinking brain goes on vacation. The animal or survival brain takes over because politics actually is a survival based activity. In that mode, the animal brain pushes the thinking brain out of the way and takes charge.

Listen to political discourse. Do you ever hear anything except superficial arguments? Is there any discussion about what will be good for the country based on deferred gratification? Are there any sentient arguments? No. If you ever hear, let me know because I haven’t heard any. One counter example, although potentially interesting, doesn’t change anything. The higher brain is never spoken to in politics. Truth is not part of politics at all.

Any political argument you hear will be focused on getting you to change your mind without thinking. Much is said about the “Black Lives Matter” movement. The truth is that no lives matter at the aggregate level. Out lawmakers have no trouble sending American youth to fight and die promoting corporate interests. Don’t tell me that our national Corona virus initiative has anything to do with saving lives of Americans.

What we have are two groups of American voters volunteering for slavery. They will get what they are asking for.

The truth is a hard sell. Fantasy Free Economics gains readers one at a time. Major search engines simply do not list blogs which disagree with their political agenda. As long as folks share the link to this blog and others speaking out against the grain, the truth will at least trickle into the public consciousness.

Fantasy Free Economics recommends the following blogs.
