Running Against The Clock

Running Out The Clock PDF Version

Last year I published  How to Take Over the World in the Modern Era. which explains the root cause of what we face as a nation today. Given the situation today, the elite of the world are running against the clock. Serious critical thinking begins when people start suffering. As it is today, only those with little income and political power are suffering and they have started thinking.

The 100 or so richest people in the world  collectively have more power within themselves than all of the governments in the world.  Is there any reason why they wouldn’t coordinate their efforts at this point in history so as to further consolidate money and  power at the top of the economy? Adam Smith wrote that those types of plans were pervasive and normal. Economists elude to Adam Smith constantly but other than that, they pay him no mind.

Adam Smith

“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

If more than the poor and middle class begin to suffer economically, for the elite, their greatest opportunity will be lost. To prevent that from happening, the stock market must not fall or worse crash. The economic hardships must climb the income/wealth latter at a slow enough pace to allow them to accomplish their goals before the entire system falls apart.

These folks control the essence of all elected leaders so they receive the representation their constituents would otherwise.

Notice the almost hysterical efforts to censor the truth. Can they unite the country behind them before the system collapses? When the majority start suffering, the majority will also begin thinking.

Patriots On Facebook

There are no patriots on Facebook. Calling oneself a patriot a does not make a person a patriot. Neither does publicly showcasing the highest level of patriotic philosophy and opinions. How much sense does it make to adopt the posture of being a patriot while continuing to support an entity that is denying you the right of free speech? Continue reading

Kill Or Be Killed

Download PDF Version

Either ordinary citizens kill the largest big tech companies or the big tech firms will kill what is left of democratic principles and free markets. How is it possible to kill a corporation? Only consumers can do that.

It is not hard to notice that the business models of these companies call for censoring the truth. Truth is not is good for business. What their profits depend on are the symbiotic relationships they have with government, the pharmaceutical industry and others as well as their users who function herds they manage. The institutions with symbiotic relationships insure their profits by molding a homogenized, compliant, docile and cooperative population. Continue reading

Time To Speak Up For Yourself

The facts are the facts.  I learned as a pulpit minister that how a person spins those facts naturally causes division.  The Bible says what it says, yet we have Baptists, Methodists, Catholics, Pentecostals.  I was involved in a group known as the church of Christ and we put our spin on the text like everyone else and formed ourselves into a group.  There was often heated debate about what to do with the exact same facts that the other groups had access to, not to mention debates among our own people.  There are divisions within churches of Christ that would probably surprise outsiders.  There are conservative churches of Christ, liberal churches of Christ, institutional, one cuppers and more (what the heck is a one cupper?).  Even with the divisions within our ranks, we were a united front against the likes of those Baptists, Methodists, Catholics and Pentecostals.

Presuppositions

Along the way I’d heard about the idea of presuppositions – what a person supposes to be true beforehand. Continue reading

Fight To Think For Yourself

I’m not a pulpit minister anymore, but was for a time, and boy was that a roller coaster.  Anyway, that’s what I thought I was supposed to be.  I went to school to learn the Bible, partly because of a run in with a guy named Brian K., a fine fellow who’d have given you the shirt off his back.  He said something about the book of Genesis that didn’t set well with me and I stumbled all over the place trying to defend my position – and to no avail.  But it wasn’t because I wasn’t right, or he wasn’t right or anything like that.  There was something going on that most people never see.

It’s hard to forget what it’s like to enter an arena where certain things are assumed at the core of a discussion, but have no idea what those assumptions are.  Most people enter discussions this way and it’s a free for all. Continue reading

The Five Branches Of Government

The Five Branches Of Government PDF Version

The U.S. government consists of 3 formal branches of government as noted in the U.S. constitution but two others that are never recognized.

By definition we do indeed have three branches of government. Legislative, Executive and Judicial.  The Fantasy Free Approach considers institutions in terms of how they function and not according to how each is defined. Continue reading

Scheme of Things Covid and Economics Distribution of Income and Suffering

Scheme of Things Covid and Economics Distribution of income and Suffering PDF Version

Who is Suffering and Not Suffering?

The graph below illustrates how suffering is distributed throughout the population.

The balance of political power is concentrated at the top of the income ladder. At the very top, enormous profits are being made at the level of billionaire and Americans who directly serve the upper class. The living standards of those who work for government have not changed. This is also the case with respect to all whose essence comes from receiving a government check of another kind.  So, who is suffering? That is a group that is not in the loop in terms of political power and benefits.

Do Economists Understand Markets? Continue reading

Who Will Unite The Country?

Who Will Unite The Country? PDF Version

Who will unite the country? Certainly, it won’t be me. Will it be Joe Biden or Donald Trump? God forbid that any president unites the country. Should a country be united? A united country is fine as long as the population unites itself independently of a leader urging folks to unite behind him. If citizens are generally of a similar mind that is fine. When a politician seeks to unite the population behind him, ordinary citizens are being ask to fall on a sword for their country. Follow a national leader and you are following the equivalent of a Judas Goat.

Lets look at some examples of situati0ns where a leader has united a country.

The first that comes to mind is Venezuela. Hugo Chavez United Venezuela. How did that turn out? You decide. Continue reading

Trump Today, Biden Tomorrow

Biden’s win is an example of winning on behalf of state run social media, and state run, isn’t entirely accurate. It has become a media that is now no longer “in bed with” the state, it’s actually positioned itself so that it can comfortably and merely tolerate, cooperation with the state. Trump leveraged social media last time to beat Hillary. This time social media turned against him to give the win to Biden. But make no mistake, the fact that social media can be used to leverage results in an election should scare the hell out of anyone. Let’s be real. Nobody is leveraging social media that social media isn’t allowing to leverage. Continue reading

Stimulus Stimulus Stimulus Up Next

Stimulus Stimulus Stimulus Up Next PDF Version

Stimulus is a political tool and nothing else.  Stimulus provides politicians a way to reward the parties who support their essence and make their acquisitions of more power possible. The cost to the overall population is staggering.

Thinking is not allowed in economics if one wants to get paid. Since I am doing this for nothing, I can think to my hearts content. You can think also provided your life and income do not depend upon your not thinking. Continue reading
