The Amazing Hot Air Cannons

Go to the echo chambers and witness countless virtue signalers. Some call themselves liberals. Others call themselves conservatives. All of them are promoting big government, some unwittingly and some on purpose. It is just a matter of style. Both sides are under a huge delusion. They believe they have representation and that someone is listening to them. It is as if they believe that the country will change in their direction if finally a majority adopts their point if view.

These hot air cannons are a complete gift to the parties which actually do have representation and determines what happens in government. Call them the elite, status quo, shadow government, billionaires club, one percent or whatever term you like. Just know that they are more than happy to have the multitudes arguing philosophy while they use government to pick everyone’s pockets.

There are no greater fools than those who are filled with a notion of self importance and imagine that  those in authority see them in that same light.

Normally liberals do have an agenda. Today they don’t. Their only tool is name calling. Conservatives have never had an agenda other than endless rhetoric. There is not one conservative initiative in the world today. Conservatives and liberals alike are volunteering for slavery at an alarming rate. The issue is, whose master will be in charge?

What is freedom for? Americans use freedom like an asset and bargain it away for comfort.

The hot air cannons are loud with virtue signaling. In the mean time folks who really run government are shuffling around and reorganizing. There is no need to worry about the citizens of the country interrupting that process. They are endlessly arguing and debating among themselves not understanding how things really get done in Washington.

Collectively citizens have the potential to control government but they are no where close to figuring out how to use it.

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.
