Laws, especially federal laws are now being enforced or not enforced depending on political power. The elite of the world are not bound by laws at all. The only time elites are prosecuted for anything is when not prosecuting them puts other elites in a bad situation. Madoff and Epstein are good examples. Organized crime has taken over government and runs it for their own benefit. Don’t think this situation has no effect on the behavior of people at the bottom of the food chain.

Nature provides ways for people to settle their differences. Originally violence was the main method used. Then democracy evolved. Democracy allows name calling, demonstrations, prejudice, discrimination and all else up to the point of breaking societies formal laws. Take away all of the not yet violent techniques for settling differences and getting ones way, and what is left is nothing but the violence democracy normally would minimize.

In the real world, which is where shootings take place, people and institutions have historically been defined and labeled according to how they appear to the people who are looking at them. When a man identifies as a woman or a woman identifies as a man, the identity is completely internal. The notion that individuals declare what they are and how others should see them is a brand new development. I am not picking on the trans folks in particular. They just provide a clear example. The fact is that we all end up being defined by the simple impressions people have of us and not the impressions we insist they have. Denying people the right to have their own thoughts and opinions on an everyday basis on anything and everything, regardless of right or wrong, makes things like mass shootings seem reasonable to those already on the fringes. That is a huge catalyst to gun violence.

So, what is government going to do to stop the shootings? If government is given the task of eliminating the shootings or stopping them entirely, we will have more mass shootings than can even be fathomed. Government initiatives to stop mass shootings will do for gun violence what programs to eliminate poverty have done for the poor people in Baltimore.

Do we create our own reality. Some argue that we do. It is a lot less convincing that we can create reality for others and that is the attempt that is constantly being made.

So folks are confounded that some on the fringes are flipping out and committing bizarre acts of violence? Given the overall atmosphere in the country, it would be surprising if these things were not happening.

The truth is a hard sell. Fantasy Free Economics gains readers one at a time. Major search engines simply do not list blogs which disagree with their political agenda. As long as folks share the link to this blog and others speaking out against the grain, the truth will at least trickle into the public consciousness.

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.
