The Truth Will Set You Free

truth-of-dorJesus told his disciples “and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”  John 8:32. This statement by Jesus, like most of what he said is treated as a platitude and seldom investigated for meaning. What is seldom asked is  is free from what?

He never said the truth would make folks happy or even be something they would choose to deal with. Initial exposure to the truth is stressful.

The quote below is one the clerics pretend isn’t in the scriptures.

“He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal.” John 12:25

In the secular world, the one we live in, people are animals, no better or worse than the lower creatures. This is the system we can all be free from as a result of knowing the truth. The dilemma is that life will be more difficult.  Lose this life and gain the other. The other is permanent. Observe people as animals, and you will know what to expect every time.

At certain times, knowing the truth is more important than at others. The United States economy is in the process of falling apart. To the few of us who deal in truth there is no other possible outcome given the way decisions in government are made. In the animal world, people worship one another and use government as a dominance and subservience hierarchy. Work is a second choice and government is the natural place to go to live off the efforts of others.  To control government and guarantee positive economic outcomes, this is the truth that must be known. One shortfall of secular living is that there is a business cycle that reoccurs because using government to allocate economic resources destroys the economy periodically.  The last complete destruction of the economy occurred during the Great Depression following the crash of 1929.

The only advice I can give is to know ahead of time that most Americans are going to lose everything they have. The best to be in the small group that hangs on to a few assets is to know the depression is coming and make every preparation possible. Goodwill only exists in a free market system. Since the free market system has been dismantled, the depression will be a case of every man for himself.

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.

Fantasy Free Economics recommends the following blogs.

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.
