That is very simple to answer. Any healthcare law that is based on a 1000+ page bill is filled with elaborate skimming operation placed there by the parties who lobby to get the bill passed.

Applying Natural Law To Economics

The discipline of economics in the aggregate is fatally flawed because of a complete ignorance natural law. As intricate as economic theory is, it never has a chance of working as intended because it is flawed from the beginning.

Advice for LGBT Efforts

Download PDF Version

This is not criticism of the goals of people in the LGBT movement. It really is advice and nothing more. It is human nature for all of us to try and elevate the perception others have of us. I have no way of knowing how and why certain people have different attributes. I am not foolish enough to proclaim that I know anything at all as to why one person turns out one way and someone else turns out another. Continue reading

The Sensation Of Understanding

Download PDF Version                                                                            September 15 2019

I make no secret of the fact that I teach natural law as well as economics. The discipline of economics is rooted in natural law and the basis of economics is drawn from natural law, but only a few principles are used. The rest is discarded. Examples of natural law as part of economics are the laws of supply and demand.  It is a natural law that people will buy more at a lower price than at a higher price. Continue reading

How To Knock Off A Conspiracy

Download PDF Version
Who is looking for conspiracies? Who is participating in a conspiracy? Why that would be you and I. Are conspiracies illegal? Are all conspiracies secret? I suppose a conspiracy can be illegal. Plotting to overthrow the government outside of the democratic process is illegal. Conspiring to change the nature of government by using the democratic process is perfectly legal. Continue reading

The Role Of Conspiracy Theory

Adam Smith is routinely referred to as the father of free market economic thought. Was Adam Smith also the father of conspiracy theory? If not, he certainly explained how natural the formation of conspiracies is a constant influence in economic issues.
“People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.”
Adam Smith, An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations
If the value of conspiracy theory was taught in school instead of portraying government as like a  benevolent  parent, citizens might take their required role of reining in government more seriously.
When a doubt is raised as to the veracity of what is being told by official sources, the doubter is deemed a conspiracy theorist. The purpose of that is to dismiss the observation as conspiracy theory. The fact is that all of collective action is comprised of multitudes of layers of conspiracies. Independent initiatives by single actors are minuscule in number and never successful. If a person is to understand the process of government or society in general, identifying conspiracies is absolutely necessary. Not focusing on identifying ongoing conspiracies guarantees failure of all attempts to make constructive changes.
The terms conspiracy theory and conspiracy theorist are used to protect a lie. I have never heard either used in any other way.

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!”

_ Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin was terribly misguided when he made that quote. Democracy had never been thoroughly tried, so he can be forgiven for not foreseeing that there were more serious issues with the abuse of democracy than what originates with ordinary people. So, the United States is organized as a republic and that is supposed to keep the masses from voting everything in the treasury into their own pockets. Continue reading
