Suffering Needs To Intensify

Suffering is the only known remedy for consequences brought on as a result of stupidity. When I talk with today’s professed conservatives I find their minds are stuffed to capacity with conservative sound bites that their minds have recorded like tape recorders. These sound bites are then re-repeated as if they are reflections of the speaker’s original thoughts. There is never any depth of knowledge behind any rhetoric these minds repeat back. If it isn’t a sound bite you aren’t going to hear it from them. Suffering has the potential to punish people until they start thinking out of desperation.
There have always been anti-capitalists and lots of them show up at the Occupy Wall Street protests. That is to be expected. What is absurd is that almost all professed conservatives are wildly supportive of corrupt capitalism. Well, corrupt capitalism is not capitalism at all. Advocates of corrupt capitalism are criticizing anti capitalists. Now, does that make any sense?
Our founding fathers guarded against many potential problems inherent in democracy. They had no idea how easy it would become to manage public opinion. Today, we have several belligerent mindsets successfully bending public opinion to their benefit. These belligerents are the source of the sound bites that fill the minds of today’s professed conservatives.
We need conservative who actually think. We need genuine conservatives, the kind who can tell the difference between capitalism and corrupt capitalism.
So far, in this depression, suffering has not been severe enough to cause professed conservatives to think hard enough to reach the depth of their minds that exists below recorded sound bites.

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.
