Modern Education: Failure is Success – Part III
What is true? By definition, true or truth is that which is not false. Truth can legally and ostensibly be obtained by a general consensus. By that logic, if a group of experts arrives at a conclusion, suddenly, that conclusion becomes a truth. Who can argue with experts save other experts? Look at the consensus style pronouncements coming out of the psychological community concerning what is and what is not a mental disorder or disease. Who can argue with the experts on the subject of human behavior?
Modern Education: Failure is Success – Part II
How does one keep control of a population segment that outnumbers the ruling class, by approximately one-hundred to one? Education, my good man. Teach them for free, and teach them only those things which benefit the ruling class. Does this sound familiar? It should, since the entire British-India system was imported into the Americas….right along with the colonists….i.e. YOUR ANCESTORS.
Why did you kill that guy? The man in the white coat said I should…
Stanley Milgram was a lunatic in the very sense of the phrase “mad scientist.” I don’t know that for certain, but I feel it in my gut. If you’ve never heard of him, it’s high time we introduce you.
Modern Education: Failure is Success – Part I
It seems that people these days are content to watch “American Idol” and “Entertainment Tonight” on television rather than actually learn anything. Most folks have forgotten (or more to the point, never knew) what learning is. Critical thinking has gone, like so many other invaluable skills, the way of the Do-Do bird. And many reading now ask…what’s a Do-Do bird?
Audio Book – Listen to 1984 While You Drive
How many people quote 1984 who’ve never read it? The number is astounding. It’s not even right the number of times I’ve heard “Big Brother is watching” from a person who hasn’t even read the book. Now, thanks to your friends at Matrix Solutions, your last excuse for not assimilating this Orwell classic are gone.
The Legal You: A Human Resource
Assume The Following…
The United States is bankrupt and has been since 1933. The U.S. “went off the gold standard” in 1933. The U.S. “went off the silver standard” in 1964. Remember? That’s when all the coins were debased for cheaper metals like copper and nickel. Therefore, the United States has no gold or silver backing for currency and daily operations as required by the Constitution.
Required Reading – Bankers Are Not Your Friends
To the average person, modern banking is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma (to paraphrase Churchill). It was born of the secret societies of the ancients and survives with all that secrecy in tact. It is probably no great mystery that the bankers aren’t all they’re cracked up to be, but what’s shocking is how far they really are from the picture they paint.
Required Reading – Propaganda
Propaganda is a familiar word to most people. It has a negative connotation, but many don’t know why it does. The term was an everyday word, but after the Nazi rise to power, due largely to the actions of the Propaganda Minster Joseph Goebbels, the term fell out of favor.
Why Really Knowing Your Language Matters
You’ll hear many times on this site that there is only one language, the language of phonetics. What does that mean, though? If you break down the way every language under the sun is constructed, you’ll find that all of them are made of the same constituent parts…
Required Reading – Confessions of an Economic Hitman
Have you looked around the world in the last decade? Argentina had the 8th largest global economy until 2001. Today, it has sunk to third world status and people that were once considered wealthy and living well; millionaires and even billionaires, have lost all. It happened almost overnight, in what amounts to a heartbeat in time.
