Zero Logic

Can you see the illogic that these elites engage in? Right now the elites are harping about the extreme infectiousness of the Delta variant. They are stomping around the room like an aged, overweight Joan Crawford with a hanger obsession.

They are ramping up the fear on the Delta variant because they want to induce people to get their corporate vaccine. Incidentally I’m not a person who is supposed to the vaccine at this point in time. I do support the vaccine – primarily because there is no other way for us to becoming immune. Our knucklehead elite prevented us from getting the disease naturally.

The Delta variant appeared in India months and months ago. If the variant were truly this infectious, we would’ve seen it in the United States immediately. We don’t travel by boat anymore. We travel by jet. But even if the boat were the primary method of travel, it wouldn’t take months to get from India to the United States.

And once it got here, it would have exploded into the population even more so than now because there were less vaccinated people then. Aside from that though, respiratory viruses are not spread primarily through respiratory droplets. They are spread through hand to hand contact. A person has to cough on their hand, shake your hand, after which you have to pick up food that you plan to eat without washing your hands first. The face mask is worthless.

When you cough into the air, you’re coughing into an ocean of air. The respiratory droplets are immediately diffused. There thus isn’t sufficient concentration or infectious dose to cause disease. There is however sufficient concentration when you cough on your hands. In that case, the respiratory droplets are not diffused into the air. When you then shake someone’s hand, they then have that higher infectious dose on their hand. When they pick up a cookie to eat, that same higher infectious dose is on the cookie. That’s why fomites and hand-to-hand contact cause disease while respiratory transmission does not cause disease – unless of course you cough straight into somebody’s mouth. But even that may not cause disease as they discovered in 1918 when they directly injected influenza distillate into subject’s nasal passages without successfully transmitting the disease. Huh? Yeah, you heard me; that’s right.

Why doesn’t Dr. Fauci know this? Why doesn’t Dr. Scott Gottlieb know this? First, because they have no incentive to know. They chose to join the Empire. When you join the Empire you obey; you don’t think. If you don’t obey, you’re out. If you’re out, you don’t get the heady experience of being recognized.

Indeed, Dr. Scott Gottlieb is the epitome of fascism. He is a member of academia; he’s a member of the media; he’s a member of the government; he’s a member of Corporate America. What else do you need to see? Do I need to draw a roadmap for you?

Second, Dr. Fauci and Dr. Scott Gottlieb are academics. Academics go into academia in order to repeat, obey, advance up the ladder, play political games, smile, abuse their students, wear white coats, feign intelligence, accept awards, publish useless papers, and say stupid things. There are no original thoughts in academia. There are no original thoughts because original thinkers are weeded out of academia. That’s not the way it’s supposed to be; that’s the way it is.

If respiratory droplet transmission of respiratory diseases was the primary method of disease transmission, mankind wouldn’t have made it past the first year of man’s existence on the planet. Your body has many mechanisms in its respiratory tree to prevent droplet transmission of respiratory diseases. You have cilia, you have mucus, you have all sorts of cells and chemical mediators that fight infection. It’s called non-adaptive immunity.

Look, If respiratory droplets were the prime method of viral spread, handwashing would be useless.

If there is an explosion of COVID-19 in unvaccinated populations, Dr. Fauci and Dr. Scott Gottlieb have only themselves to blame. They and their lackeys were the ones who told people to hide inside their houses and wear facemasks. They put the facemask above handwashing as the primary method to prevent COVID-19.

Aside from all that, the numbers that they are issuing don’t even make any sense. There are still plenty of unvaccinated people in these states that they celebrate. Remember, they told us last year that herd immunity was almost impossible.

Do you know what the hallmark of a pathological liar is? His logic doesn’t make any sense. He keeps getting trapped within his lies.

Our federal government is a pathological liar. They have an agenda. They clearly want this facemask to be the new normal. And they certainly want the COVID-19 vaccine to be an annual vaccine.

Our government has been hijacked by Corporate America. Our leaders are nothing more than cheap money hungry pigs who will wage useless wars of any type in order to make a buck.

COVID-19 is just another one of the Empire’s enemies.

The war against COVID-19 is a war just like Vietnam, just like Korea, just like Afghanistan, just like Iraq.

It’s also a war that could have been prevented.

But, our elites love war. War makes them money.

Our elites, our leaders, are losers.

They are liars and criminals as well.

Dear Elites

Dear Elites,

Go away.

All we need you to do is go away for four years so that we can fix things.

I don’t think that’s asking too much.

In four years we can undo all the damage that you have done so that we can get America back on track again.

Take a vacation to your mothership in Europe. Go back to the society oppressors from which you came.

Our country, and it is our country, was created to give us an opportunity in life, the opportunity that you deny us.

We don’t care about the addiction which so obviously afflicts you.

We are not obsessed with money, power, and titles.

We don’t get upset if we are not invited to a State Dinner at the White House.

But if we were invited to one, we probably would not go.

We don’t give a shit about meeting Meg Ryan or Gary Busey.

The only people who do care are the emaciated and spiritually impoverished junkies and celebrity watchers who you have created.

Truly educated people don’t care. Nor should they.

In fact, I think it’s fair to say that many of us would say fuck Meg Ryan, fuck Gary Busey, fuck Kim Kardashian.

We certainly don’t care whether the President smiles at us or not.

Nor do we care about trips on Air Force One.

In fact, our ancestors despised the ruling class who had oppressed them for centuries.

That’s why they came to America.

They did not come here to re-create Europe, a continent of elitist criminality that you are so obviously impressed with.

They risked their lives to come here.

Our ancestors despised people like Cecil Rhodes and Queen Victoria.

They knew them for the rapists and usurpers they were.

It is you, the elites, who embrace Cecil Rhodes.

It is your corrupt, elitist, treasonous Harvard University that brags about how many Rhodes scholars it has produced.

It is your vapid Hollywood that embraces the royal family of the UK.

It is your co-opted media that obsesses over Kate Middleton and the new oppressors she gives birth to.

So, please, do us a favor and go away.

Take a vacation.

Take your lying media lackeys with you.

We need a dose of honesty. And we need a bath.

We need to wash the caked up scum off our bodies.

Our country cannot survive if the citizenry is lied to about why we fight our wars.

Of course, our wars are fought to make you money. Our wars have never been fought to save democracy. In fact, it is your wars of choice that threaten democracy. It is your wars of choice that threaten the Bill of Rights.

It is your exploitation racket that engenders the terrorism that in turn engenders the fear you have of “commies” threatening your exploitation racket which then necessitates the surveillance state.

With you gone, we will once again begin to live in a society of trust, not distrust.

With you gone, we will be able to reestablish a decent manufacturing base in the United States. We will once again endeavor to become enablers of other nations, not bullies.

With you gone, there is a chance for other nations of the world, like Haiti, like those in Southeast Asia, like those in Central America, to prosper. Currently their citizenry is exploited thanks to you. You dump cheap corn and rice into their countries in order to make the Ivy League trained losers at ADM and Cargill filthy rich. When you dump cheap agricultural products into these countries, you hurt their local agricultural base. You further impoverish them.

Currently these countries act as slave plantations, thanks to you. You accomplished this by outsourcing decent paying American jobs. Your companies like Levi’s exploit them by paying five dollars per twelve hour workday. If the laborers rebel, you help their dictator – who you prop up through your thug CIA – to send in the military to suppress them.

When these countries are truly free and able to prosper, when the slave plantations are gone, they will be more likely to be friendly to us. We then won’t need to spend billions of dollars on foreign aid, propping up of dictators, and military intervention to stave off “communist influence.”

With the military industrial complex made unnecessary, we will be able to focus our federal dollars on building high speed rail, a first class competitive healthcare system that insures all, and a cleaner environment – necessary measures which you are manifestly opposed to giving us.

Of course you are; you are too busy looking at yourself in the mirror, building yet another ugly mansion on Martha’s Cesspool, worrying whether you will be invited to meet Bruce “Celebrity Puppet” Springsteen at the latest Washington soirée.

When you are not obsessed with frivolity and making money, you are busy handing out silly awards to yourself. Your awards ceremonies are fake pass around awards designed to cement yourselves as legends in your own minds.

This is not good for us.

With you gone, we will be free to reestablish our manufacturing base back here in the United States. This will be good for the citizenry of the United States as many citizens don’t have the desire, smarts or skills to be executives or computer programmers. With decent well-paying jobs, people will be less likely to resort to the use of drugs. Crime will go down, drug addiction will go down, education will go up. Many of the social ills in society will evaporate.

The corporate prison racket will vanish. The black community will thrive. No longer will half the population be guarding the other half of the population in your stupid profit-making prisons.

It won’t take that long to fix things. We will see an immediate improvement.

But of course, none of this can happen if you are here.

You see, elites, you are the problem.

You are an abusive father who is addicted to drugs. You spend the family fortune on your addiction to exploitation and subjugation of others. You hurt all those around you. The rest of the family lives in fear and poverty thanks to you. We know that you are addicted, but you do not.

We suffer in silence.

The only way that we can save ourselves is if you go away to a drug addiction farm, to remove yourself from us, so that you can get better and that we can get better.

The sooner you go, the better.

Four years is all we need.

Please leave.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Archer Crosley

The New Khmer Rouge

The clothing that we wear and the music that we listen to are not chosen by us.

They are chosen for us by the opinion makers.

This is the way that humanity works.

I don’t like it, but it is what it is.

As a society becomes more authoritarian, less freedom is permitted by the elites.

In Nazi Germany, a certain type of music, like that of Richard Wagner, was chosen for the people by Joseph Goebbels.

The clothes of the Nazi party were chosen for the people by the ruling class.

In North Korea, there are approved haircuts which all North Koreans must abide by.

In Mao’s China, the communist party chose the Mao suit for its people.

Choosing clothes and music is a method of enforcing conformity of thought upon the people.

Our country is no different.

Countries have reasons for doing this.

Back in the early 1980s a classmate of mine noted that children were being dressed as if they were going off to war. It was in those days that you saw the introduction of cargo pants and military style clothing.

At the same time, the music became more violent. Black musicians prior to 1980 sung of love; after 1980 they sung of bitches, drugs, and negroes.

Games like Mortal Kombat came into being.

We had no idea that in 20 years the United States was about to embark upon nonstop war.

In fact, we were of the opinion that the days of the United States running around the world and kicking ass were over.

We were wrong.

Our elites had other plans.

If it’s one thing our elites are good at it is devious planning.

They know what they are doing, and they know what they want to accomplish.

Back in the 1980s, with the introduction of military style clothing and violent music, our elites were programming young children for the wars that they would soon fight when they grew up.

Things are no different today.

Currently our elites are hell-bent on enforcing this face mask upon the children of our society.

Why do they want the facemask?

While I can only guess, I can guarantee you that our elites know exactly what they are doing. And we are going to find out exactly what that is in the next 10 to 20 years.

Don’t kid yourself. Our elites have spent billions of dollars in studying psychology, and how people think.

In time, we will come to realize this.

Are they preparing our children to become de-socialized, obedient killing machines?

If so, against who?

Us?

That would seem a safe bet.

It seems logical that our utopian elites, seeking to gain even more control of society, in their sick quest to become living gods, are programming young children to become compliant and socially distanced from the people the elites command them to control.

The elites will need this new Khmer Rouge to put down the rebellions that will most certainly arise.

Controlling the clothing that people wear, the music they listen to, the games they play is essential to achieving that end.

Sincerely,

Jesus, CRT, and Titles

Let’s talk about Jesus, prayer breakfasts, and awards.

I was ranting about this in my car just five minutes ago, so that’s always a good sign that there’s something that I want to passionately write about.

Let’s begin with Tucker Carlson.

It’s time for Tucker Carlson to put his job on the line.

It’s not enough for Tucker Carlson to point out all the shenanigans and misdeeds that are going in our country.

It’s time for Tucker Carlson to not only call out who the people are who are responsible for prosecuting stupidity but to tell us where they went to school.

He never does that.

Apparently he thinks it’s not important.

It is important.

Tucker Carlson has called out General Mark Milley, and he is called called out Admiral Michael Gilday.

That’s good, but he stops short.

He doesn’t tell you where they went to school.

That is important.

Since Tucker Carlson will not tell you, I will tell you. Mark Milley attended Princeton and Columbia.

Michael Gilday attended Harvard.

It’s important for you to know that so that you can see which cabal is promoting these crazy movements in the United States.

The latest crazy movement is of course CRT – Critical Race Theory.

Both of these military men, Milley and Gilday, endorse this theory.

It’s not surprising that they attended the Ivy League.

It is the Ivy League led by Harvard University that is responsible for prosecuting this nutty theory.

The real purpose of CRT is to prosecute a rigid Marxist society upon the people of the United States. Marxism of course is in practice crony capitalism, aka corporate socialism, aka fascism, aka neo-feudalusm.

If I have told you once, I have told you one million times that Harvard is not our friend. Harvard is our enemy. Harvard is a mole of the British aristocracy and the malignant elitism they embrace.

It’s not possible to have a decent republic with Harvard University acting as an alien agent that works against us.

Harvard loves titles, awards, Nobel prizes, Pulitzer prizes and Rhodes scholarships.

Boy, does Harvard love Rhodes scholarships.

These dog biscuits enhance the appearance of infallibility of the Harvard graduate. It’s a way of re-creating the British aristocracy here in the United States of America.

Harvard also leads the Ivy League which controls the CIA which is a dirty trickster to us here in America and to citizens around the world.

These people who come from Harvard and the Ivy League who prosecute unworkable theories need to be called out.

Tucker Carlson stops short.

Why does he stop short? Is he just another agent of the Empire?

You need to know where these leaders went to school.

Of course, Tucker Carlson isn’t the only host who fails to reveal the intellectual origins of these people. Nearly every one of our prominent conservative broad broadcasters also fail to call these people out. Charlie Kirk tried to blame Critical Race Theory on Rutgers University.

That’s a laugh.

Another individual who always stopped short and who always seemed to support the establishment when push came to shove was Rush Fraud-Baugh.

Don’t you find it surprising that Rush Limbaugh who positioned himself against the political class, near the end of his life accepted that ridiculous Presidential Medal of Freedom from the political class?

I don’t. Rush Limbaugh was firmly in the fold of the establishment. He was just another tool of the elites. They wouldn’t have allowed him to gain so much influence unless he had been.

That he accepted that Presidential Medal of Freedom is proof that he bought into the Empire’s scam.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is one of the dog biscuits of empire. It’s what the Empire uses to rope people into their malignant game plan.

Another individual who refuses to renounce or expose the true malignancy is Chris Hedges. Chris has done good in exposing the corporate malignancy that is destroying America, yet at the same time he allows people to promote his Harvard pedegree and his Pulitzer Prize.

If Chris Hedges were truly serious, he would renounce his Harvard degree and his Pulitzer Prize.

Chris Hedges should know better because he attended divinity school.

Let’s ask a simple question: would Jesus accept a Presidential Medal of Freedom? Would Jesus accept a Pulitzer Prize? Would Jesus conduct a prayer breakfast for our politicians much as our celebrity preachers rush to Washington DC to genuflect before the politicians and deliver a prayer breakfast.

Would Jesus sanctify and bless war?

No he would not. Jesus very specifically told his followers to render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and to render unto him what was his. What Jesus was saying is that there are two separate kingdoms and they are mutually exclusive.

Jesus understood full well the evil of Rome.

He lived in it; he didn’t have to read about it.

He didn’t need to go read a book by Mary Beard like the rest of us.

It was Christianity that defeated Rome. Christianity accomplished what no standing army could. Christianity involves the renunciation of titles, prizes, and elitism itself.

Rome was a disgusting, evil, brutal empire that was focused on power, money, and riches. The only way to defeat it was to walk away from it.

Would Jesus expose Mark Millie and Michael Gilday for the misguided elitists that they are?

Would Jesus point out the underlying institutions behind their thinking?

You bet your ass he would.

Sincerely,

The Wrong Brand of Globalism

The brand of globalism that our elites practice is wrong.

It’s wrong for us, and it’s wrong for the elites.

Of course, the elites can’t see that because they are morally blind. Money has a way of doing that.

The elites believe in an imperialist version of globalism. They see the United States and their allies in the West as the executives to the world, and they see the people in Haiti and Southeast Asia as the worker bees who will work for peanuts to make finished goods for citizens in the West.

Naturally, of course, the lion’s share of the profits will go to the rich in their walled off developments across the United States and in particular Martha’s Vineyard.

The elites and their media lackeys justify their exploitation of these have-not nations as the price they pay for “we the enlightened” bringing democracy to their otherwise destitute nations.

In reality though, we in the West make these nations destitute.

Our apparel companies like Levi’s and Nike pay workers 5 to $10 a day to make our jeans and shoes. Our agricultural companies like Cargill and ADM dump their cheap corn and rice into the exploited nations thus destroying their local agriculture.

The dictators that our elites prop up in those exploited nations through the CIA, their thug agency, ensure that this economic model is possible.

This is the only possible way for the elites to gain unbridled wealth. They wouldn’t be able to do so if they were making an honest buck.

This is how the wealthy in Britain got so wealthy in centuries past.

Those fabulous mansions that the British aristocracy lived in were paid for by the sweat of the workers in the slave plantations that Britain ran around the globe.

When the British weren’t subjugating countries like India and China, they were running slave plantations in Guyana, Jamaica and Fiji.

That’s why you can meet people of Indian extraction who come from Guyana and Fiji. The British elite tricked illiterate Hindu into becoming indentured servants via a thumbprint signature.

When you watch films like Pride and Prejudice or Downton Abbey, and you see the fabulous mansions that Mr. Darcy and Lord Grantham owned, you are looking at stolen wealth.

Our elites here in the United States are impressed by that.

They seek to emulate the British.

But we are not British. We are Americans.

Moreover we should not be British.

We have a common language, English, but that’s it.

Our ancestors didn’t live in mansions Like those of the Lord Grantham and Mr. Darcy; on the contrary, our ancestors lived in work houses like those depicted in Oliver Twist.

This is all the more reason to walk away from Britain’s brand of imperialism.

It is Britain’s brand of imperialism that serves as the model for our modern day globalism.

It’s a wrong model. It’s a wrong vision.

The proper brand of globalism involves a sharing of wealth and productivity.

Each nation should make within reason 80% of its own goods for its own people.

In this manner, every nation can be a winner.

In the current model, exploited nations are used as slave labor camps for the rich who live on Martha’s Vineyard.

Exploited nations also serve as sanctuaries for wealthy corporations to avoid environmental and financial scrutiny.

Exploited nations also serve as pop-off valves to keep wages low in western nations.

The result is the lesser quality of life for citizens in both the exploited and exploiter nations.

The only people who win are the rich.

Free trade is really free imperialism.

It’s the wrong brand of globalism.

When we help others, we help ourselves.

When we help the people of Haiti and Southeast Asia become more prosperous, we become more prosperous.

Paradoxically our rich will live a more rewarding life. But they are too blind to see this.

Obsession with money has created this moral blindness.

They have become a cancer cell practicing the wrong brand of globalism.

Sincerely,

Haiti, the Ruling Class, and Education

Virtually any government anywhere, despite its form – monarchy, representative government, theocracy – will soon come to be dominated by a ruling elite.

There seems to be a natural gravitational energy that produces this phenomenon.

Since no known civilization has avoided a ruling elite, oligarchy must be imbued or impregnated within our DNA.

In other words it’s unavoidable.

This means that ultimately we cannot rid ourselves of the ruling elite.

This is so because men are endowed with different talents. Some people are better, smarter or more skillful than others.

Additionally man is endowed with free will which gives him the choice to not work hard.

Many people don’t want to be leaders; they don’t want to be rich; they don’t want to work hard.

Some men prefer to be lazy.

Thus we will always have a disparity in income and power which in time will give rise to a ruling elite.

If we cannot rid ourselves of the ruling elite except on a temporary basis – when we send our leaders to the guillotine – then we must arrive at ways to control them.

Placing legal and financial constraints upon them can work for a while, but it also seems to be that in time the elites will find a way to circumvent or eliminate those constraints altogether.

These constraints are the checks and balances which Americans are so proud of, which our leaders talk so exuberantly about, but which increasingly do not exist.

There is apparently no system that cannot be circumvented.

If we are to change the ruling elite, we might be better off by reconditioning our minds with regard to our attitudes toward money and humanity.

As we never know who will rise to power, we must condition all of us.

What’s missing in American society today in comparison to earlier eras is a sense of noblesse oblige or caring for the less fortunate

We’ve always had a ruling class in America, yet in earlier eras leaders were less focused on themselves and their own grandeur; they felt greater responsibility to the people who were less fortunate than themselves.

They looked after the people first. They put the people’s needs before their own glory.

Our society has become increasingly more pagan. We worship bling and power.

If the United States is a superior country to many others around the globe it is not because the leaders in the United States today possess a large sense of noblesse oblige, but that so many other countries in the world have leaders who possess far less.

The country with leaders who excel at putting the needs of the people above their own personal interests will be the country that has a better chance of prospering.

Similarly the country that puts the needs of its less fortunate allies above the superfluous wants of itself will be the country that rules other countries more favorably.

You can call that Crosley’s first law of government.

The problems in Haiti today are in large part self-inflicted. Its leadership is poor and has been poor for some time.

Corruption is rampant in Haiti. Its leaders mistakenly, excessively and outrageously put themselves before the needs of their people.

This is why Haiti is a failed state.

Yes, there has been foreign exploitation, but this foreign exploitation has been facilitated by poor leadership.

Noblesse oblige is poor in Haiti.

The rich there are out of control.

Their minds are twisted.

They work with our out-of-control rich in the United States to increasingly devastate the people of Haiti.

Not even basic education is provided to Haitians, and it is education that is needed first and foremost.

Most likely this is not an accident. The elites know all too well the power of education. Educated people in time kick corrupt people out of office.

Education is the stem cell protoplasm of life.

If Haiti is to transform itself, it must begin with education. Buildings, infrastructure, indoor plumbing, are the consequences and results of education, not the producers.

When all Haitians receive education, and lots of it, they will be able to fix themselves; they will be able to fish for themselves. They will no longer require a fish to be thrown at their doorstep.

Much of the money that has been thrown at Haiti for purposes of infrastructure has been stolen by the wealthy elite, the corrupt ruling class.

The money is deposited in US banks which satisfies our corrupt wealthy elite just fine. Much money is also borrowed from the international money fund and other organizations, stolen, laundered, and then placed in US banks which again satisfies the ruling class of the United States.

Noblesse oblige can mitigate that.

If the ruling class possesses a sense of noblesse oblige the leaders put the needs of their people before their own desires. They provide for education.

Paradoxically when the ruling class looks after its people first, they enhance their own stature and monetary standing.

This understanding must necessarily be part of the educational process that must transform Haiti and in turn the United States of America.

You see, we don’t know who will rise to power. It might be you, it might be me. Consequently proper education must be received by all. Everyone must understand that when you help others, you help yourself.

These fundamental truths have been lost, but they can be regained.

It begins with education.

Sincerely,

Democracy without Education

Many years ago Nelson Mandela cast off apartheid in South Africa, and the the black people who live there had great hope.

Unfortunately, life never seems to work out the way we want it to.

Today as we speak, South Africa is descending into a failed state.

Widespread looting is rampant.

What’s going on? And what are the root causes of this?

Of course we can talk about the past president, Jacob Zuma being placed in jail due to corruption, but that’s not the root of the problem.

A mandate to loot does not exist because a past president is placed in jail.

If people do loot, they are looting for another reason.

The reason they’re looting is because they don’t have a stake in the game.

Jacob Zuma being placed in jail is a trigger, an excuse.

The real problem is the inequity of income and wealth in South Africa today.

The unequal income and wealth exists because of educational disparity between black and white.

The hope was that democracy for black folk would fix that problem.

But it did not fix that problem, and it cannot fix that problem.

It cannot fix that problem because a healthy democracy is not the cause of a productive society, but the result.

Now, of course, you wouldn’t know that by watching our main stream media.

Our main stream media babbles about democracy as if it is a magic salve that heals all wounds.

Of course, you know by now that it isn’t.

You know this because there are many failed states in the world that have beautiful constitutions with beautiful democracies.

But they don’t work.

They don’t work because healthy democracy is a result, not a cause of a productive society.

A democracy without an educated electorate is nothing.

A democracy without an educated and trained citizenry has no solid base of support in which to operate a heathy government.

Education is everything.

You have to have educated citizens with skills.

A few years ago, a black man in South Africa spoke before the cameras.

He was an immigrant from Ghana. His automobile repair shop had been ransacked.

He spoke about crime in South Africa.

He said that the problem with South Africa is that the people there don’t have skills.

They lacked vocational skills.

People without skills, people without education riot.

Democracy without educated people, without skilled people, is not a democracy at all.

It’s a raging mob screaming for Barabbas.

People who are educated, people with skills, people who can live a prosperous life don’t riot. They don’t loot. They obey the law.

They study. They take a measured response. They think.

Unfortunately, this lesson was lost on the United States and the other geniuses around the world who were pushing South Africa to democratize overnight.

South Africa complied, and apartheid still exists – but with rioting.

What will fix this is education.

Democracy without education is useless.

Cutting Corners

In the early 1970s the Philadelphia 76ers had one of the worst NBA basketball teams imaginable. They won only nine games. The following year they acquired a new player who would transform their team.

His name was George McGinnis.

He was an early day LeBron James.

He was a big man who could dribble, shoot and score.

He was a real force.

When he came to the team one of the Philadelphia reporters asked him the following: George, how does a team get to be this bad?

McGinnis gave a profound answer.

At least I found his answer profound.

He said that some guys cut corners for so long they don’t know that they are cutting corners anymore.

The same argument applies to our elites.

When a basketball player slacks off physically and mentally in practice and during the game, he is cheating himself.

And he is cheating the fans.

He’s taking a huge salary for doing shoddy work.

Similarly when our elites slack off physically and mentally, they are cheating themselves, and they are cheating us.

Our elites have been cutting corners for so long they don’t know that they are cutting corners anymore.

Munger, Buffet, Dimon and the rest of the pack have been cheating Americans so long in the rigged financial sector they don’t know that they are cheating anymore.

They don’t make money because they built a better mouse trap; they make money because they’re friends with someone.

They went to schools that programmed them to believe that they are the ruling elite, that they are the cream of the crop.

Munger went to Harvard. Buffet went to Wharton.

Everybody knows that they are the elites.

And everybody knows that elites win.

Consequently the elites have gamed the system to fulfill the prophecy that was set out for them.

They are winning because they are supposed to win.

They must win.

When other people win, that win must be negated, especially if those winners are untouchables.

Untouchables must lose.

Robinhood investors must lose. Bitcoin investors must lose.

Elites must win.

And that in a nutshell is what is going on in America.

We have long asked the question: Are our elites dumb or devious?

They aren’t dumb.

They are deviously corrupt. Not only are they corrupt, they don’t even know that they are corrupt.

They are just like the Philadelphia 76ers of 1972 who chose to cut corners rather than practice and play honestly.

The calamity that our elites have produced is similar to the basketball calamity that the Philadelphia 76ers produced in 1972.

The America that our elites have produced is a basketball team that has only won nine games.

But they don’t care. They don’t care because they have the money and the bucks.

If things aren’t working, that’s your fault not theirs.

A poor chief always blames his braves.

A poor chief never accepts responsibility.

A poor chief always cuts corners.

The Beast Within Us

What would you say to a rude fool who probed you about your personal life in front of a group of people?

Suppose these people were your friends.

Suppose you felt intense shame.

How would you respond?

I was thinking about that today.

I imagined such a person putting me on the spot, making me feel uncomfortable.

A long time ago I had an acquaintance named Bob who once embarrassed me severely.

So I will use Bob and pretend that Bob has put me on the spot.

How would I respond?

Of course I could always say: Well, it’s none of your business, Bob.

But since Bob is an ignorant individual without empathy, he’s going to make my life his business.

So how would I respond?

I’ve been thinking patiently about this.

I would quietly say:

You only think you want to know the truth, Bob, but you don’t really want to know the truth.

Because within each one of us lies a dark forest with a lonely road leading inward.

And there floating in the distance lies a pair of yellow eyes waiting for us.

This is what Ang Lee was trying to express in his movie, The Life of Pi.

Without going into too much detail, Bob, the film is a story about a boy named Pi and his search for God. His search is an educational odyssey for he and us. His faith in God is tested by the travails of catastrophe when his boat capsizes at sea and he loses members of his family. He must survive on a life boat with himself, three other animals, and, of course, a tiger named Richard Parker.

Well, we are led to believe Pi is accompanied by animals.

It’s a wonderful movie, Bob, and you should see it.

Well, perhaps you have.

What do you think the author was trying to tell us?

We are all different, and we take different interpretations from a work of art depending upon our life experiences.

Here is what I see, Bob.

The author is telling us that there is a beast within us. The beast is represented by the tiger, Richard Parker.

Richard Parker has a friendly name, but Richard Parker is a beast.

When we are young and naïve we do not understand this. Pi also does not understand.

Pi as a boy treats Richard Parker as he would a friendly kitten.

To teach him to fear the beast, Pi’s father has to show him what the beast is capable of. So he places a goat inside a cage with Richard Parker, and Richard Parker methodically devours the goat.

This frightens Pi.

This is the beast inside us.

This is the dark side of man.

There is little kindness to mankind, Bob.

We are savage beasts with sparse flashes of nobility.

In our souls, we are the Ton Ton Macoutes.

Rabid dogs with machetes.

All of us.

We are savages.

We will cannibalize each other to survive.

But our fragile minds cannot bear this, and so we write fables to compensate for our savagery.

It is the better story, the story we wish to hear.

And so Pi tells a fable to the owners of the boat after he is rescued at sea.

The harsh truth of humans eating humans is too extreme.

The beast is not our friend.

When the beast is done the beast turns away without saying goodbye.

The beast retreats into the jungle as Richard Parker did.

He is us.

He is always with us.

He waits and lurks at the end of that long lonely road within that dark forest within our soul.

He is not our friend.

He is a beast.

Presentative Democracy

Do you believe that representative democracy is the ultimate form of government?

I don’t.

I think it’s a terrible form of government.

The elites figured out how to rig elections pretty much the day after they came into being.

Did you know that Napoleon and his brothers rigged elections in France?

That was 200 years ago.

Not only did they rig the elections and plebiscites, they were brazen enough to rig them with rounded number victories: 16 million to 4 million.

Forget about the fine-toothed comb.

Why bother with precision?

But even if elections weren’t rigged, why would we want a dope who knows nothing about the issues to cancel out our vote because some Boss Tweed type clown bought him a barbecue sandwich?

This is the problem we have with elections today.

Actually, it’s worse.

No longer do the elites have to mess with paid voters showing up at the polls.

With our “advanced” voting machines, the elites can remotely program the votes in with the click of a button.

It’s unhealthy.

The politicians will gladly help that criminality along by assuring that voter identification not be required at the polling booth.

Clearly the politicians and the elites who control them desire the system to be this way.

Since they do, what does that say about them?

What does that say about representative democracy?

This invites the question as to why politicians should be voted into office in the first place.

We don’t elect cardiologists.

We don’t elect bakers.

We don’t elect carpenters.

Instead we vote with our feet.

Instead of a formally electing someone, we actively use the people who we say offer the best service.

So why don’t we do that in politics?

Why don’t we jettison this idea of electing one guy to represent us every two to four years?

Maybe we can devise a different model in which to get things done.

What would this system look like?

To get things done any citizen could petition a professional (specialist) who has gone to school for handling that specific common function that we currently entrust to the government. Let’s say that we want to widen the intersection near our office so that it can accommodate a dedicated right hand turn.

Once that specialist is petitioned, a mechanism is set in place so that other petitioners can either join in or oppose the petition.

This petition after a certain period of time can then be adjudicated by professional judges that are agreed upon by the specialists.

In this matter, citizens can then make changes to their city or neighborhood that they feel are important and relevant.

None of these specialists or judges would be subject to being elected. They would go to school to gain expertise.

There could be specialists for schools, specialists for roads, specialists for healthcare, education, specialists for what have you.

Accordingly there would be judges for these areas of expertise.

The mayor, and the commissioners would be a thing of the past.

What would be the consequences of such a system?

What would be the upside? What would be the downside?

Theoretically, we should have greater expertise and better decision making by virtue of having specialists take care of various issues.

We trade in the bloated, corrupt jack of all trades for a lean, clean machine of expertise.

Secondly, we decide issues on their own merits, not by compromising other areas.

Currently, if we want to improve our schools, we have to give in on other issues. We can’t just improve our schools; we have to give the mayor’s buddy the concrete job for the new highway even though doing so may be a really bad idea.

So if we moved to this new system, gone would be the giant omnibus bill in which congressman can throw in their pork.

But maybe that’s not a good thing. Maybe pork and fat is good.

Maybe people need that pork to provide needed jobs that otherwise can’t be gotten.

That is something we would have to think about.

But it’s worth trying.

It’s worth trying because the current system isn’t working.

Representative democracy doesn’t work because the key weak link is the representative himself.

If the representative is bought off by corporate interests, which is what’s going on today, then democracy can’t possibly work.

Within a democracy that’s controlled by people who can present their case directly to a specialist, let’s call it presentative democracy, we might stand a better chance.

Of course, the specialists and judges can be bought off, but by decreasing their range and scope, we might be able to limit the damage they can do.

Sincerely,
