Predator Elitists

By popular definition a president, senator, or representative is a public spirited person, drawn to public service out of goodness and a sense of duty. By popular definition a constituent is an independent minded individual trying to do what is right in a democratic society.
Both definitions are wrong in terms of what actually happens in the United State’s political and economic spheres. Leaders emerge out of a small group of born predator elitists who view the world in the terms of their own interests, and feign public service. The predator elitists become national leaders. They are personable and charismatic. They have an unquenchable thirst for power and use any position they acquire to further their personal ambitions. To do this, they have to convince voters that they are devoid of self interests. Every predator elitist does not go into public life. Some go into business and figure out how to use government to rig the market they operate in.
Constituents are in fact not independent minded. All but a few make group decisions and interact with government as if government were a parent. This is all while professing to be just the opposite of what they are. Constituents want to be taken care of. They see they treat their elected leaders as caretakers. Professed conservatives look to government to rig economics and business in their favor. Liberals look to government to create social justice and to provide for them economically,
This is not a new situation. This is the order which has existed for all of recorded history. It is a natural human tendency for the general population to make themselves available to be exploited. It is also natural for leaders to take the population up on their offer and exploit them endlessly.
Sometimes predator elitists overdo it. The quest for power causes those in charge to milk the population for more than it is worth. A revolution takes place. New leaders take over and the process starts all over again.
In the United States today, we are in the early stages or a breakdown in the economical and political orders.

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.
