This Is The Way You Do It

This is how I figure things out and anyone can do it. I do mean anyone. There are many interesting things about the present moment. The one thing that is most relevant is that all living things have an innate ability to almost flawlessly recognize danger and opportunities in the present moment. But, human beings have an issue, other species do not seem to have. When humans replace reality with fantasy, they view the present moment through the prism of fantasy and that makes their natural discerning ability useless. There is no way to respond correctly to reality if one is replacing it with fantasy.

Being in touch with reality does not take intelligence. Brilliant people are no more in touch with reality than anyone else. You know the old saying, garbage in and garbage out. If you don’t see an issue exactly as it is, you have no chance of responding to it effectively.

Cutting back on fantasy calls for accepting the basic unsettling circumstances of existence as given. Why are we here? What are we? What is consciousness? These kinds of questions don’t have answers. Just be willing to have it that we. It is that way whether you are willing to have it that way or not. People are afraid to die. No one knows whether life is a gift or an obligation. Perhaps it is neither.

Faith is fine but reality, in the sense I am using it, applies to the secular world. Economics and politics are secular world activities. The secular world is the animal world. Through faith some believe  that we believe we can escape into the spiritual world when we die. I am one of those people but that has nothing to do with figuring out what is going on in animal world we are faced with surviving in right now. Faith and religion have everything to do with how we spend our personal time and energy. The secular world is what it is though. We all live in it and we all make decisions.

Next, know and accept that the laws of dominance and subservience are what determine outcomes in the secular world. Don’t try to replace these laws in your mind with more pleasant ways of seeing things. It may make you feel better but that is all it does. What it does for sure is prohibit you from recognizing and responding correctly to danger. Fantasy is that elected representatives are like fairy god mothers protecting us from bad things. Politicians are guided by self interest and are completely ruthless. That is one of those reality gaps I am constantly writing about.

Of course, accept self interest as the only universal incentive the human race possesses. Do not expect others to be serving you, when in reality they are serving themselves.

Remove fantasy from your life and you will notice that what appears to be true is true. Remain in a fantasy based state of mind and first glances start generating incorrect answers. In fantasy your conclusions are comparable with your fantasies and never on target. Fantasizing that a president, for example, is working tirelessly for the American people and you are enabling corruption. Understand that the president is doing the job out of self interest and things he does that don’t seem good for the country start to make sense. That is because you know ahead of time that he is president primarily and probably totally for his own benefit.

I have turned fantasy free thinking into an art form for my self. There is more to it, but what I am writing here is enough to put you way way ahead of the average person in figuring out what is going on in the world.

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.

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.
