Essence of Fantasy Free Thinking

Essence of Fantasy Free Thinking PDF Version

Every child is born into an ongoing eternal power struggle but does not know that is the case.

Nature gives all of its creatures a high level of discernment with respect to the present moment. All animals are born with the ability to recognize risks, rewards as well as fact or fiction close to flawlessly in the present moment. Opportunities and dangers are immediately fathomed and responded to.

The basic nature of our existence is completely daunting. We know not what we are nor why we are here. We can only live by consuming other living things. We do not know what life is even though we recognize it when we see it. We do not know what consciousness is either or whether it is part of the physical world or exists independently. We are mortal and really don’t know what death is either. There is and alternative to living in the uncertainty that is given by nature. We can replace it with fantasy.

So, at birth the race to escape reality begins and continues until death. Reality becomes what we want  or what we can cope with instead of what it really is. Reality always catches up with a human being one way or the other. Happiness requires staying a safe distance from the reality of survival both as an individual and as a species.

Humans create a safer and happier mental arena for survival than the one nature provides. Although the one nature provides is always in control.

It is comforting to believe that there are one  or more benevolent entities by way of government, religion or something else working in our behalf, trying to do what is right in order to make lives better. This is the common fantasy the mind generates but the truth is the opposite.

No one enters public life for any purpose other than personal gain, be it power, money or prestige. This is the truth. I am sorry but it is.

So, we end up  with a population of messiah seekers who support candidates who they believe will carry water for them when elected to office. There are basically two styles of representation in government, trustees and delegates.

In government today all who are in office are trustees. There are no delegates.

A delegate is one who votes the will of his constituents regardless of his personal opinions or postures.

We end up with a government of individual power seekers pursuing their own interests and a public which has no influence over government.

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.
