Democratic Party Debates

151012101824-democrats-in-cnn-debate-exlarge-teaseTo understand where these candidates are coming from, we must look at the mentality of those who will be voting in the Democratic primaries.

Voter intellect is not what causes a constituent to vote one way or another. The image a voter has of himself is that of a little God. Human nature shields voters from the awareness that the candidates view them as their future servants.  Voters favor the candidate who best acknowledges and nurtures that little God image. The candidate/constituent relationship is based completely on fantasy.

Am I alone in noticing that since the beginning of recorded history there has never been an economic initiative through government that has worked out favorably for the overall population? Outside of basic services like fire and police departments, every other effort by government on behalf of citizens has done more harm than good.

Still, the democratic faithful are always ready to turn any and every issue in their life over to the government. Failure after failure has proved completely undaunting to voters. All go to the poles with the expectation that their candidate will work tirelessly on their personal issues like improving the economy, making other people adopt a desired behavior, fight just wars………and on and on.

I am not handicapped by a belief system that rests on a mountain of euphemisms. All I have to to is observe clearly without the obstructions from euphemisms.  Decisions at the poles are made in line with instinctive behavior. Human beings instinctively relate to government as a parent. When voters deal with government, it is very similar to the way a child relates to a parent. The parent is assumed to have all kinds of skills and knowledge. That is a child’s best approach because a parent is the child’s only resource.  For thousands of years, adults lived as slaves to a king, czar, chief or other leader. Leaders were routinely worshipped. Kings had divine rights. People have only been voting for around three hundred years. Human instincts change at a much slower pace than general social phenomena.

Of course in a voters mind, he is a little God and cannot see himself acting on instinct. I doubt that a horse puts a lot of thought into the things it does instinctively. Instinct feels so natural that humans do not notice what they are doing. Of course we all have the capability of overriding instinctive behavior. Deciding by instinct is the path of least resistance.

The things voters would have government do are not possible for government to do. Government is always a means to an end. Whoever has political power uses government for personal gain. That is the way it works in a world where laws of dominance and subservience apply. Self interest does not disappear when a candidate gets elected to an office.

The rank and file in both parties operate on fantasy but the Democrats are a little bit worse.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
