When Fantasies Die

When fantasies die many who hold those fantasies to be true die with them. Donald Trump is only president. There is a limit to how much damage a president can do alone. A nation full of mush minded ignorant citizens can do unlimited damage.

People like this will die before they learn what the issues are and become enlightened.  This has played out many times in many parts of the world. Government makes people feel special and they support candidates who elevate their self esteem. I am not talking about the illiterate and the uneducated. I am talking about professional people with higher degrees.

The folks in the picture neither understand the issues facing the country nor do they even know what the issues are. They don’t know that they are being robbed blind by government monetary policy.  They wrongfully believe the U.S. military is fighting for freedom. They don’t know the difference between healthcare and health insurance. They don’t even know who financed the candidate they voted for in the election.  They don’t know what fascism is. Fascism has replaced our free market system and these folks are not even aware that it has happened. They hear kind words about special people and believe government has been doing something for these people. The Democratic Party has done absolutely nothing for women, minorities gays or anyone else.  We are looking at ignorance and stupidity so thick that it couldn’t be cut away with a knife.

Regardless, these people will die before they disolve their fantasies in the light of reality. I mean that literally. When a reality gap gets as large as this one is, it is really hard for a country to survive.

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.
