THE TRUTH ABOUT PUNISHMENT

Punish Children With Right Method_3

Punishment: n. doing and/or giving a frequently unpleasant subset(s) which is done and/or given for not achieving a goal(s) and/or for doing a (bad and/or wrong) and/or illegal subset(s)

If you misbehave as children you have privileges temporarily suspended, if you are very late coming home then your spouse may harshly criticize you, if you are adulterous you get divorced, if you don’t get a useful education then you will probably not find a good paying job, if you do a lousy job then you get fired or demoted, if you commit a crime and are caught then you go to jail, and if you have a bad personality then you probably will have few if any friends.

These are just a few examples of punishments which humans and society enforces for bad or unacceptable behavior. We would all ideally like to be rewarded for everything which we do but the sad fact is that we do some pretty shitty things and punishments of all kinds will impact you in your life both small and large.

Many are leading unhappy unfulfilling lives and what they don’t realize that it is frequently punishment for not doing necessary things in the past such as following good role models. Life is not fair or just and it is frequently because you didn’t have good parents, good friends, or good role models to follow or imitate.

THE TRUTH ABOUT STEREOTYPES

stereotype_tshirt-p23572351

Stereotype: v. to identify a human(s) and/or subset(s) by one personality characteristic and/or one generalization which is frequently not very accurate

Hispanics are alcoholics, women are carers, and cities are industrial wastelands are stereotypes which don’t give an accurate complete description of many Hispanics, women, and cities. They are stereotypes or broad generalizations which are not accurate in many individual instances.

Name calling is also a form of stereotyping and if you call someone stupid, crazy, or incompetent they may in fact only do some stupid, crazy, and incompetent things but labeling them as being compulsive about it is wrong and a stereotype.

Beliefs in stereotypes, especially of ethnic groups, is also the foundation of prejudice and once you strongly believe in a stereotype it is very hard to change that belief because you have developed an emotional attachment to it and don’t want to or aren’t smart enough to change it.

Stereotypes are popular because they create a simplistic view of the world which doesn’t require much logical thinking. Unfortunately stereotypes will handicap a human who uses too many of them and he or she will frequently be thought of as not very smart or even prejudiced if the stereotypes are unflattering generalities of humans and things.

Historically all my black tenants have been bad tenants but I have also had many bad white tenants and the real reason that they are bad tenants is because all of them have been poor financially with lousy jobs. I have learned not to stereotype humans based on race but I have learned to stereotype them based on income. If a tenant is poor financially then the probabability that they will be a bad tenant is close to 100%. I have learned the hard way through the school of hard knocks that money is more important than race and I always ask and confirm monthly income, time on the job, and rental history.

THE TRUTH ABOUT EVOLUTION

evolution

Evolution: n. a relatively gradual change in a lifeform(s) frequently from simple to complex

Whether you believe that the universe was created from an almost infinitesimal point in space billions of years ago or whether you think the universe and earth was made in 6 days about 6000 years ago, these are both hair brained ideas which will never be proven and will be debated until the end of humanity or religion.

Evolution on the other hand is the idea that everything in the universe is changing, sometimes speedily and sometimes in almost imperceptible ways or very slowly. Evolution of humans, animals, and plants tends to be towards more complexity although the human world has gotten more complex and there is strong evidence that human intelligence is actually on the decline from a biological point of view. There are fewer and fewer geniuses in this world each day so we may in fact assume that the human species and its brains are evolving backwards to greater simplicity.

Whether living organisms are evolving towards greater complexity or simplicity at any moment is a debatable topic but what is not debatable is that the world is undergoing radical change due to human overpopulation and destructive human intervention in the environment.

DNA knowledge and its future manufacture may lead to complex human, animal, and plant organism DNA’s. Complex technology may even lead to smart robots which are more intelligent than most humans. We may in fact in the not too distant future be able to help nature along it’s evolutionary path from simple to complex organisms and technology.

Most of these new organisms will be mutant forms of life and their long duration survival on the face of this precious earth is under a big question mark. Will human intervention with life increase its complexity or ultimately destroy what little healthy complexity has evolved? Human destiny will answer those questions in the long duration. I only regret that I will not live long enough to find out.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SLEEP

images (2)

If you are getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night then you should not feel tired the next day and if you do feel tired and are not very old then you could try eating healthy with moderate exercise or consulting a physician to find out if you need a more radical lifestyle change.

Most of us with insomnia can attribute the cause to working too many hours or having such a frantic daily schedule that we can’t turn our active mind off enough to fall asleep at night.

Trying to maintain regular sleep hours or going to bed at the same time every night without interruptions can help but frequently you have to wind down or do something soothing and mind distracting about an hour or half hour before bedtime.

Try switching off all communications with the outside world and that means no cell phones or computers before bedtime. Taking your mind off of daily concerns and problems is vital and that means doing slow exercise, meditation, sex, a warm bath, or a pleasant soothing pastime such as listening to calming music, watching a somewhat boring TV show, or reading a rather boring but interesting enough book.

Taking over the counter sleeping pills regularly for two or more weeks will result in potency loss and your sleepless symptoms will resurface and only one of the side effects may be drowsiness and tiredness the following day.

Some humans on antipsychotic medication get many undesirable side effects with one being an inability to sleep more than 4 or 5 hours a night. If you withdraw from antipsychotics then you suffer acute insomnia.

Unless it is an emergency situation where you absolutely must be fully rested for the following day, do not use sleeping pills or prescription medication which puts you to sleep artificially and frequently results in greater sleep problems with habitual use.

Alcohol tricks some humans into thinking it is a sleep aid. The fact is that alcohol disrupts the quality of sleep and habitual usage can result in alcohol addiction or dependency. Getting drunk before bedtime once in a while is OK but just don’t make it a daily habit. If you do get drunk then do it only if you don’t have to work the following day, especially if you want a focused mind the following day.

Some physical laborers are alcoholics to some extent and it may not radically impact job performance but if you need a sharp mind to function effectively on the job then alcohol is definitely something which you should use wisely and sparingly.

THE TRUTH ABOUT INVESTMENTS

Diversified-Investments

Historically the smart investor invested money where he or she could get about 6% or more of an annual return on money and could retire as a millionaire. Today most conservative investments only return about 2 to 3% on money and inflation frequently eats away what little profit the investment makes.

Real Estate investments will keep pace with inflation but if you have a mortgage on the land or property at about 5% then you are still losing wealth letting the bank make all the profit.

The stock market, rigged for big money and fast computers, is no longer a safe long duration investment for the small investor nor a large investor and the only ones making a killing are the short duration investors such as big banks, hedge funds, and billionaires. If you don’t know where the big money boys are going to invest or divest then it is almost a guarantee that you will lose money in the volatile stock market and not make any profit in the long duration.

Banks get all their investment money almost free of charge from government counterfeited money and they no longer have to depend on small investor savings accounts for their money. The result is that banks pay almost no interest on savings accounts and rip you off big time if you keep your money in a bank.

Gold prices are also inflated and deflated at will by big money and if you buy at the inflated price then you may lose about 30 to 40% of the value of your money when the deflation occurs in a matter of a few weeks or months.

CONCLUSION:

The financial investment industry is rigged favoring big money and if you are an average investor then there is little hope that you will make a profit on your money and chances are great that you will probably lose much of it trying to make risky investments which is the sorry state of most remaining investments these days.

The myopic economic system does not encourage conservative investments, savings, and thrift and that is why many humans are mired in debt and the nation itself is mired in debt and is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy which is becoming more ominous with each passing year.

THE TRUTH ABOUT WEALTH

wealth-inequality-slide2

I am no expert on wealth because I am not wealthy but there are some truisms about the wealthy which I believe are true.

There are basically those who achieve wealth in their lifetime, those who inherit wealth, and most of us who have no hope of ever getting wealthy.

Those who inherit wealth may add to it but frequently a youth of luxury without hard work and learning useful skills in life leads to profligate spending as adults, shallow personalities, and many experience bankruptcy or a tragic life of failed relationships frequently accompanied by heavy use of alcohol and drugs.

Having too much free time on your hands and associating with bad humans who want the wealth which you have frequently leads to dysfunctional lifestyles for those who inherit wealth and have never really learned how to increase it or earn more wealth.

Those who earn great wealth are frequently interesting humans who have come from very poor or middle class families and have struggled to make it big. Some actually lose their wealth sometimes more than once taking on big risks but somehow manage to come back and earn much more wealth than the average citizen is capable of. A useful education, hard work, determination, taking occasional big risks, and the right social connections are frequently what makes self- made humans highly successful and wealthy in life.

In the past with a steadily growing economy it was possible to gain money or wealth steadily with relatively conservative investments of about 6% and become a millionaire at retirement age. Today with banks paying almost no interest on savings accounts, stocks being an uncertain investment in the long duration due to large corporations with minimal growth, with inflation eating away at the value of saved money, and little opportunity for small businesses to thrive, the common citizen has little chance of accumulating wealth during a lifetime and many decide to spend everything which they earn and live from paycheck to paycheck.

The wealth of the US is greatly decreasing with ever larger debt annually and many private citizens are also in great debt causing a precipitous decrease in the middle class as the rich get richer and almost everyone else is getting poorer and poorer.

The bad financial system of the nation which does not encourage thriftiness or conservative investments has created a system where getting wealthy is increasingly impossible for the average citizen. The emphasis on short term financial investment is threatening the very foundations of a long duration healthy economy.

Those who control almost all the wealth in the world are the international banks, international corporations, and billionaires who with the help of special interest legislation and laws are all getting wealthier at the expense of the middle class and the poor who are either working or are on welfare and buy goods and services promoting the rich.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CONTRACEPTION

contraception-choice

There are many historical forms of contraception with the most popular being birth control pills, condoms, vasectomies, and the original form which is coitus interruptus which basically means withdrawing the penis before ejaculation.

Contraception can be good if used for family planning or limiting the number of offspring births but unfortunately it is also an incentive for some to be promiscuous without any bad consequences other than perhaps the risk of getting an STD or a sexually transmitted disease.

Any smart couple should use contraception to avoid the financial burden of too many offspring and it also does the overpopulated world a favor by not adding too many new humans to pollute the environment more than it is doing already.

The least fortunate are in some underdeveloped countries where many offspring are considered social security in old age and frequently illiteracy is the primary reason why there is no contraception or family planning. This leads to much starvation and a hard life with additional offspring mouths to feed on already severely limited resources.
