The Daunting Nature Of Reality

The Daunting Nature Of Reality PDF Version 

The harsh nature of the physical world is accepted without debate. We cannot go outside in the winter or summer without making adaptations. People work outside in the harshest cold weather. This cannot be done without wearing winter clothes. Even so, those outside during extreme cold weather, look forward to the warmth of a fireplace and can not wait to get there. It is cold outside but we alter our environment so that we are comfortable. Life on earth cannot survive in outer space or on any planet we know of.

Human beings also have an inner world where cold, heat and other environmental issues are not relevant. Our inner worlds are daunting also. I frequently mention that every child born immediately enters into an eternal power struggle, while not aware of this being the case. Life is regulated by harsh laws of dominance and subservience.

Was Adam Smith Crazy?

Was Adam Smith Crazy? PDF Version

Was Adam Smith a conspiracy theorist? It seems he was. So, I suppose that makes him crazy – right? Adam Smith is routinely deemed to be the first economist and the father of free market thought. Should we now disregard everything the man wrote or said? After all, is it not true that all allusions to conspiracy are products of the imagination and must be treated as such? Was Adam Smith just another trouble maker like all conspiracy theorists? Or, was he merely pointing out what is normal human behavior? You decide.

Accepting Reality April 2022

Accepting Reality April 2022 PDF Version

The race to escape reality begins at birth. Reality is replaced with fantasy because it is too harsh to cope with. Every child is born into an eternal power structure. Our world is governed by laws of dominance and subservience. Most people live in an oasis of peace from all of the belligerence and brutality that is actually ongoing. It is easy to see the world as a peaceful place for those who have no direct involvement with it.

Most agree that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Today power is concentrated at the top of society more so than it ever has been in human history. So, those in charge of the world and its people are closer to having absolute power than has ever been the case before. Americans are surrendering their First Amendment rights as if those rights are not necessary and that they will be fine without them. Continue reading

What Do We The People Seek From Government?

What Do We The People Seek From Government PDF Version
It is easy to notice that, not just with government, but in all aspects of their lives, people tend to end up having what is most important to them. Sometimes they end up having just that one thing and nothing else.

If wealth is genuinely what a person wants, especially if that want is out of proportion to anything else, they are likely to have it, or at least end up with a higher than average income. There is nothing magical about becoming wealthy. It takes a lot of sacrifice. To become wealthy requires, giving up many other things in life that are meaningful to people. Be it love, free time, entertainment those things often must be left on the table. Continue reading

Future Of The Dark Web

How are folks’ experiences on the internet going these days? How is the censorship going for you? Do you like having all your news filtered … purposefully manicured , and groomed – so that you buy into all that is intended to shape your opinions? How do you like having your First Amendment rights trashed and stepped on? Are you good with  the symbiotic relation between big tech, government and defense agencies?

Americans as a whole seem to love it that way. After all , their congressmen and president serve as their guardians…. keeping them safe. Do Americans want to have guardians or representatives? Continue reading

Four Ways We Communicate

Four Ways We Communicate PDF Version

Sometimes the simplest explanation of something can have a profound impact. Years ago Milton Friedman came up with his four ways to spend money.

These are:

Spend your own money on yourself. This the most efficient and productive way to spending money. The buyer gets exactly what he wants. In a free market system, this approach is very common.

Spend your own money on someone else. This is a very efficient way to spend money, but less so than number 1. Continue reading

Which Masked Man Do You Trust The Most?

Which Masked Man Do You Trust The Most? PDF Version

Back in the nineties I worked with blind people. One of them, Bob Wiley, played piano in a band  I had put together. I got to know Bob very well. He was highly educated. We talked a lot about communication between the blind,  and folk with sight.  Although Bob had been blind since birth , he had a complete understanding of what sight accomplishes.  Bob was a clinical psychologist. He understood that people communicate with body language along with speaking. Facial expressions are very telling with respect to understanding another’s intentions. Masks have been used throughout history to hide one’s face and intentions.

Of the two masked men above, which is a greater threat or any threat at all? There actually is nothing dishonest about armed robbery. Sure, it is highly immoral but the robber is completely honest about his intentions. It is your money or your life.

How To Watch Your Doctor Destroy His Life

How To Watch Your Doctor Destroy His Life PDF Version

Lets get something out of the way to start. Doctors who practice medicine are not overpaid. Based on their education, they make no more money than those in other professions that require the same number of years training.

There are doctors who make huge astronomical amounts of money. These kinds do not practice medicine. Doctors who work their way up the corporate ladder do make millions per year. They are not practicing medicine. Patients contribute nothing to their incomes.

Physician’s pay makes up only a small portion of a patient’s healthcare bill. If all patients had to do is pay their doctors, they would all be doing back flips. Doctors get blamed by patients because doctors are the face of healthcare patients see. So, they get blamed for what they have no control over. State run healthcare is what drives up healthcare costs. Continue reading

A One Day Stock Market Crumble

Although I no longer use technical analysis for trading it is easy to see that based on technical indicators, the stock market is ready to simply disintegrate. It might as well be held up with toothpicks. Without organized support, the market would have already collapsed. My position for years there has been, that there is an ongoing movement that is designed to concentrate assets into the hands of the world’s wealthiest citizens. The quote below is from a 2019 article, A Nation Of Fools.

“The goal of the asset enhancement initiative is to is to concentrate stock ownership in the hands of a few who then decide what everyone else pays for shares of stock. Is there a theory behind this process? Of course there is. The theory is that high stock prices become a new normal. Keep security prices rising and the economy will follow and so on. Has GDP responded well? GDP is officially very good but how good is it in reality? It is hard to find growing prosperity within the masses who work very hard and come home tired everyday. We do have more working and making less per hour. Government spending is counted. When GDP needs to look good, government spending can be increased in whatever amount is needed for the purpose of publishing good looking numbers.” Continue reading
