Lies News Media and Ben Carson

news-mediaAs regular readers may know, I don’t support Ben Carson.

His recent current trouble with the media and accusations of telling lies serve as an opportunity to strengthen a point I continuously make.¬† So the news media is trying to take out Republican candidates. Is this a surprise? It could only be a surprise if the term “news media” is taken literately. “News media” is a euphemistic term as it is used today.

When the “news media” is studied in keeping with how it functions rather than how it is defined, there is a different picture. What is called media today is actually an opinion management service. Relevant news is always left out of daily reports. Currently the media is dealing with whether or not Ben Carson is always telling the truth while not reporting on genuine trouble at home and all around the globe. Is this by accident? Of course not. Opinion management is the primary activity of organizations which are called news media. Looking at it like this, there should not be any surprise that Ben Carson is under attack. The news media, functions as an opinion management service and actually prevents people from being informed. Informed people are a threat to the media, government and the current corporate structure. Real news is something a person has to uncover on his own. I do it constantly and most real news is not reported or even covered up.

My opposition to Ben Carson is based on his naive understanding of economic issues and corporatist leanings. The fair tax is always a red flag.

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.
