What should be taught in public schools

The purpose of education is twofold-to teach students useful skills needed in life but just as important is to teach students how to live which is what good character is all about. Public education is failing miserably on both counts. Too many graduate without basic reading and math skills and far too many graduate without knowing the value of punctuality, dependability, orderliness, truthfulness, competence, curiosity, sharing, compromise, hard smart work, and family values in general. Critical race theory and sexual education which encourages promiscuity is definitely not something which should be taught in elementary public school.

How to read and do basic math is important but just as important is what you read and what you use those basic math skills for. In reading the emphasis should be on reading about the trials, tribulations, joys, and rewards of daily life and introducing technological and basic science topics which give real life examples using the scientific method, problem solving skills, and the concept of experimentation such as experimentation with the taste of different foods.

When it comes to basic math skills, these should be coupled with applied math as soon as possible with examples of budgeting money for expenses using calculators and introducing percentages or fractions with the aid of calculators so that students can understand percentages which appear on product labels. Financial literacy like budgeting is just not taught in most public schools nor are basic shopping skills such as knowing what a unit price is compared to the total cost of a product. Few graduate knowing how to calculate the price per pound, per ounce or per kilogram, per gram of a product and then being able to compare that with the price of similar and different products.

Far too many graduate without understanding what interest rates on credit cards and on mortgages really mean and how to calculate them for a purchase.

With religious teaching rapidly declining in many families, many public students don’t have a complete understanding of morals or ethical principles and how they relate to everyday life. An indoctrinated religious moral code of behavior is not being replaced with a secular moral or ethical code which covers the same territory of human behavior, especially in elementary school and preferably before the age of about 13.

Not having strict ethical principles to guide your life means for many a hedonistic like lifestyle which can’t distinguish which behavior is good or bad and what addictions to avoid as much as possible. The do your own thing or do what feels good philosophy often results in mental illness caused by addictions to lying, laziness, selfish behavior, promiscuity, pornography, alcohol, drugs, gambling, video games, social media, excessive shopping, and even criminal behavior. The net result is a disorganized dysfunctional brain and lifestyle filled with misery, stress, confusion, and yes, mental illness for many.

Some education like hands on lab experiments, vocational skills such as carpentry, plumbing, and auto repair, participatory sports and music, and in person social behavior skills can’t be totally done on the internet but the vast majority of subjects can be taught via the internet. So, the question arises. Other than for elementary school, is going to a physical school to learn really necessary in many cases? Interactive audio visual computer learning is a distinct and desirable alternative.

Many may not need a college education for many things unless you are going into law, medicine, or a PHD status career. Kids are learning on their own through Zoom which is online audio video conferencing. This conferencing can be led by a competent motivating teacher who can be the best math or English teacher in the community or world.

The education can be gamified so that it is not just hard to grasp memorization and regurgitation of information only. Gamification is the integration of game elements like point systems, leaderboards, badges, or other elements related to games into “conventional” learning activities in order to increase engagement and motivation. This gaming approach can make the learning experience less boring and tedious. So, internet learning can almost become a delightful fun learning experience

The new generation is almost a lost generation searching for meaning with community input and not just input from family and few friends. So, students join communities to give them a sense of belonging and sharing their spiritual views and lifestyle with others, since religion is on the decline and humans still yearn for moral or ethical principles which they can share and live by.

What should not be part of the educational experience is the promotion of critical race theory, promiscuity, political correctness, totalitarianism, intolerance of moral or ethical opposing views which are not criminal, blurring of gender identity or trying to obliterate the genetic difference between men and women, and Muslim Sharia law which oppresses women unjustly.

What society really needs more of is good, trustworthy, ethical role models in leadership positions. Not needed are untrustworthy woke role models who are graduating from a failing, increasingly dogmatic, ideological, and misguided public educational system which now includes public colleges and universities.

A federal or state gun law which may work

A federal or state gun law which may work

One of the major flaws in gun laws is that the law states what guns are legal to use and which ones are not. Technology is so advanced that humans can make their own guns with plastic or synthetic materials which are not metal and have no registration numbers on them. So, it is absurd to demand that you register such a homemade gun because it can be made in a thousand and one ways which would each have to be identified with a name and registration number.

Let’s face it, humans are the ones pulling the trigger and not the guns so the law should emphasize penalties for the use of guns by a human. “Guns don’t kill people, people do” People are the primary cause and guns only a proximate cause since weapons like knives, arrows, martial arts weapons, and objects like hammers, syringes, and chain saws are also proximate causes for death.

The federal or state law could read as follows:

Anyone convicted in the use of a lethal firearm in a crime shall be considered to be an F1 felon. If the F1 felon is found to be in possession of a lethal firearm and convicted then he or she will serve a mandatory sentence of 5 years in prison. On a second conviction for possession of a lethal firearm the F1 felon will serve a mandatory sentence of 10 years in prison. On a third conviction for possession of a lethal firearm the F1 felon shall serve a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

I use an analogy from baseball to make my point. Three strikes and your out. If the F1 felon is stupid enough to be convicted of possession of a lethal firearm three times then there should be no mercy in his prosecution and conviction. Three strikes for the same crime and your permanently in prison worked out pretty well in Florida so severe prosecution has been found to work in many cases.

The goal here is to get all convicted violent lethal firearm users off the streets and to make the law so severe that even gang members will fear the police and shy away from using lethal firearms in criminal activities because the fear of punishment will override all other considerations. Yes, poor, fear ridden neighborhoods with high crime, bad education, high drug and alcohol use, and dysfunctional families will always breed violent felons but with strict enforcement the incidence of violent crime should decrease considerably, especially if officers are permitted to frisk and search gang members for guns.

Of course, enforcement is the key. You will need to have tough honest police and tough honest judicial prosecutors who will enforce this law and not let the offenders plea bargain to a lesser charge or offense. If you can’t trust the police and judges then who can you trust? Yes, there will be exceptions to this fundamental rule of honesty but statistically they should be few and far between. Otherwise, our whole legal system is a fraud and will eventually decay into chaos.

Lax laws with little or no bail, no prosecution for theft under $950, releasing murderers on parole, and similar stupid laws without strict enforcement just encourages criminals in repeated crimes and encourage more to become criminals. Without the fear of punishment and lax enforcement of laws on the books, law and order is not possible in the long run. Obviously with lax laws and lax enforcement the public becomes the victim of all kinds of criminal activity and social order gradually disintegrates. Then it is entirely possible that the only way to restore some semblance of order will be to shoot thieves and criminals to death vigilante style.

Initially, more prison space will have to be built to house those violent offenders so it will cost more money in taxes. When enforcement of illegal drug offenders clogs the prisons then it seems logical to not prosecute as many of them but then we have a further problem of homelessness with many mentally ill and drug addicted humans roaming city streets. When Portugal decriminalized all illegal drugs in 2000, officials hoped to reduce addiction rates and drug-related violence. Today, more users are in rehab, but drug use is on the rise, and reporter Keith O’Brien says the policy has made the problem worse. The percentage of humans using illegal drugs was about 12% in 2011 and is rising in Portugal.

So, the lesson to be learned is that not punishing criminals sufficiently for criminal activity will just encourage more criminal activity in the future. The same principle applies to violent gun use. Violent gun offenders must be sufficiently punished to reduce gun violence to an acceptable minimum since gun violence can’t be totally eliminated in America, since we have the second amendment to the constitution and criminals will always find a way to get guns even without the right to bear arms for self-defense.

Changes going on and coming in the future

Changes going on and coming in the near future

A modern truism is that almost everyone is moving to or on the internet. Technologically the major problem is whether the internet will have enough bandwidth or space to handle this tsunami of communications worldwide. Assuming that the internet will not suffer from chronic congestion, here is what is happening now and into the foreseeable future.

Education:

Some education like hands on lab experiments, vocational skills such as carpentry, plumbing and auto repair, participatory sports and music, and in person social behavior skills can’t be totally done on the internet but the vast majority of subjects can be taught via the internet. So, the question arises. Is going to a physical school to learn really necessary in many cases? Interactive audio visual computer learning is a distinct and desirable alternative.

Many may not need a college education for many things unless you are going into law, medicine, or a PHD status career. Kids are learning on their own through Zoom which is online audio video conferencing. This conferencing can be led by a teacher which can be the best math or English teacher in the community or world.

The education can be gamified so that it is not just hard to grasp memorization and regurgitation only. Gamification is the integration of game elements like point systems, leaderboards, badges, or other elements related to games into “conventional” learning activities in order to increase engagement and motivation. This gaming approach can make the learning experience less boring and tedious. So, internet learning can almost become a delightful fun learning experience.

Jobs:

Internet jobs can also be improved. Payment by the service rendered and not an hourly wage could be a better way of earning money. As long as you get the job done it doesn’t matter how quickly you do it in many cases.

Pay by the second or minute for the things which you consume online so you aren’t stuck with paying for a package of info.  You may not use some internet services totally such as for entertainment, counselling or tutoring. Premium content consumption can be paid minute by minute for the amount of content consumed. Buy the exact content that you want and not an all inclusive package.

Real Estate and Business:

Largely due to the pandemic which accelerated the trend there is a decline in commercial office real estate. In a last ditch effort to save office space due to work from home competition many are converting office space into apartments.

Pretty soon you will be able to run your business from a laptop no matter where you are physically and this will extend across some international borders. Softwarization of the marketplace is inevitable which means that most marketplace transactions will be conducted online and many goods and services will be delivered at home.

Communities:

Communities are the center stage of the world and not national governments who the people no longer trust because they are monopolized by big money interests and a corrupt government. It is hard to push national patriotism when the government is so inefficient and corrupt but unfortunately this will eventually lead to tyranny since the constitution will no longer be enforced with all of its human rights as specified in the bill of rights.

Platforms are stronger than governments and can even censure ex-presidents. If you can silence a king then you are the king. A platform like Twitter or Facebook have the ability to mute the leader of a powerful military and economic nation. So, most of us don’t think that platforms should control the doors and hallways of the world. Internet communities may be able to make or break platforms as witnessed by the decrease in the popularity of Facebook and Twitter.

The internet is the largest marketplace. Fractional investment or toconizing real estate assets can be done with rent being distributed to online owners. With the proof of digital ownership in digital ledgers, personal property can be traded from anywhere in the world and bureaucratic documentation no longer becomes necessary.

The new generation is almost a lost generation searching for meaning with community input and not just family and few friends. So, they join communities to give them a sense of belonging and sharing their spiritual views and lifestyle with others since religion is on the decline and people yearn for moral or ethical principles which they can share.

War is old fashioned but valid as long as there are tyrant nations with weapons. However, drones, unmanned planes, cyberwarfare, economic trade, and innovation wars will replace brute force wars such as in Ukraine. How competition with China, with an absence of individual rights and human rights, will pan out in the future is debatable but only time will tell.

Many of the new rich aren’t interested that much in massive public displays of wealth and the massive consumption of resources. Many of the new rich want to be happy and fulfilled and live in smart homes not mansions.

Internet related business and professional jobs:

Old people can no longer offer advice on jobs but can give advice on human nature and moral or ethical behavior. We are now beginning to live in a period of non linearity with many jumps where you move from one tile to the next in the hopes that jump after jump you will eventually be closer and closer to a fulfilling job. Working hard no longer builds wealth because the currency is devaluing faster than you can produce it which means that inflation is making a set wage job less and less attractive. You need a mix of builder and sales mentality to succeed at many businesses today. You can no longer spend 10 years getting good at one thing because the entire market may change 4 or 5 times.

Privacy:

Our privacy will be less secure but we will remain rather free. In the old world our privacy was secured and controlled by internal and external factors. Today the trend is infringing on individual rights with continuous monitoring of what you watch, what you buy, and who you associate with. You can make this in vogue data mining a thing of the past if you want. Use VPN for online privacy and your online activity is anonymized and not subject to data mining.

A more direct democracy:

Power needs to be decentralized with block chains and digital passports which can lead to direct democracies.    You could practically handpick where your taxes go like for potholes and parks but on a national level you probably couldn’t handpick if you wanted your money to go to the military or social welfare. Power to choose where your money goes is coming back to the people. In the past we have delegated responsibility to local bureaucrats and politicians who have mismanaged our money, especially on the local level. Money mismanagement is even true on the national level over which we have and will continue to have little personal control.

Meritocracy online permits you to get wealthy faster if you provide something people need.

Useful education, self-education, and online community are the key to future success whether online or offline. So, the future is very uncertain for the new generation but it will be a lot more exciting for many.

A realistic view of electric cars

A realistic view of electric cars

Obviously if everyone bought an electric car today we would have major problems. Not enough charging stations for long trips, expensive car rechargeable battery replacements, not enough power in the electrical grids, and severe transportation problems during grid blackouts during a major snowstorm or hurricane.

But a gradual transition to electric cars is entirely feasible and almost a necessity for future generations when electricity will be powering more and more mechanical devices. One solution is to own two cars, one an electric vehicle and the other a gasoline powered one for emergency usage and long trips. During a power outage you could have a gasoline powered electrical generator at home to charge up the electric vehicle as long as you have some stored gasoline.

If you were stuck on the highway in freezing temperatures during a snowstorm which halts traffic it seemingly would be a disaster with an electric car. Of course, you could conceivably bring along a gasoline powered electrical generator with high output for such emergency situations so you could charge up your car on the interstate.

The major drawback today is an expensive electric car battery to replace but with technology forging ahead the type of battery may change and with mass production the cost of the battery will eventually come down dramatically, especially with a new type of Tesla battery which charges faster, lasts longer, and is not made from toxic components.

Wind and solar energy are still unreliable when there is no wind or no sun shining. Once again better and cheaper high-volume storage batteries will be the answer when they are invented or developed. Also, in the future is efficient, relatively safe, if not in an earthquake zone, modern thorium nuclear electrical generation plants to supply power if we don’t want to only depend on non-renewable gas and gasoline to power the grid.

It is nice to dream of a day when humans will be independent of the power grid and have their own “free” electricity from the sun. Unfortunately, solar panels are still very inefficient, expensive, unreliable generators of power and storage batteries are prohibitively expensive too. Until solar cells and batteries are more competitive price wise, I am afraid that power grid independence is just a dream today unless you are willing to pay much more for your electrical power than that offered by the grid.

Today electric cars are not the answer to clean energy generation as long as the grid is powered by non-renewable sources such as gas and gasoline. Yes, city pollution will be highly reduced but non-renewable power sources still have to be used for the grid and non-renewability will not be addressed or solved successfully any time soon.

Electric cars are here today but will only be economically cheaper in the future with more technological development and innovation in batteries. The relatively large recharging time for car batteries is another unsolved technological problem which may not be solved any time soon.

So, in the short-term electric cars with current technology are more expensive to maintain because of a high-cost rechargeable car battery. In the long run electric cars will be more efficient with fewer moving parts and will be a plus with no polluting fumes, especially in city environments. I will not be one of the first to buy an electric car until all the drawbacks have been addressed but my offspring will probably be driving an electric powered vehicle and be content with it sometime in the near future.

A Patriot Who is a Globalist Gourmet

Politically I bemoan the fact that globalism is destroying America and the ideology and constitution that made it great. In one major area I must admit that I am promoting globalism with my gourmet addiction to global food and drink. Supposedly you are what you eat and judging by my international diet I could accurately be accused of being a globalist at heart.

When it comes to food and drink I am using my dollars promoting the best organic food that America has to offer and peppered with international cuisine selections. Not all my “exotic” choices will appeal to your taste buds but I will just start off by saying – experiment a little, taste it and spit it out if you don’t like it. What do you have to lose except perhaps a small fraction of your food budget?

What you may gain is the tasty satisfaction of another healthy addition to your mundane daily food and drink intake. Many claim that variety is the spice of life. Frankly most of your new food experiments will crash and burn since the food may be too salty, to spicey, too sweet, or an acquired taste. But once you find something tasty, gorge on it until you find it has lost its initial appeal, especially if it is a slightly pricey luxury.

Ultimately the internet is the best source for new pricey tasty international foods but experimenting with a picky taste and being charged outrageous shipping fees every time is something my budget and conscience can’t handle.

Big cities have an advantage in having a greater variety of international foods and drinks but even if you live in the boon docks you can still volume order online with  one large shipping charge. I live in Daytona Beach Florida and even here there are some local specialty stores that I support so that they hopefully continue to stay in business. There is a Russian store, an Asian store, and about 7 other stores that I frequent on a regular basis to get my food and drink supply. To say that I am a picky and unique eater is an understatement.

In the Russian store for myself, I buy Russian buckwheat and kefir, Lithuanian rye bread, Latvian sprats or sardines, Estonskaja sausage and hot smoked whitefish from Brooklyn NY, salmon caviar, yogurt drink from California, and Icelandic cod liver. I love an original recipe blood sausage but my experimentation has not led to an acceptable brand product which may perhaps exist on the internet.

In the Asian store I buy roasted seaweed, mung bean vermicelli, kimchee, organic miso paste from Japan, and Udon noodles.

From other local stores I buy quinoa, carambola fruit, unicorn or trigger fish fillets, crab claw meat, Argentinian red shrimp, venison pork sausage, New Zealand lamb chops, octopus, Italian proscuitto, Jarlsburg swiss cheese, Irish butter, German arabica coffee, organic whole milk, and buttermilk. Yes, I also buy a lot of common foods at the local food stores but they are not rare enough to be mentioned. So in conclusion, be brave and challenge your taste buds with a new international food and drink experiment. You can consider yourself lucky if one out of ten of your choices will be a winner in the personal taste category. Enjoy, especially if you are bored or have overdosed on bad political news and feel there is nothing interesting going on in your life right now!

Title: How “MADE IN THE USA” can thrive again!

The state of the nation has changed dramatically since the founding fathers. A general desire not to be ruled by a monarch or tyrant has morphed into a dissatisfaction with the tyrannical business structure of international big money tech, international big business, and big national corporations. Big money uses the government loopholes and subsidies to enrich themselves further while keeping most of the population relatively poor and struggling from paycheck to paycheck. We have substituted the tyranny of the monarch for the tyranny of big money in the form of monopoly like tech and big business. You can almost say that we have become the slaves of the rich and powerful with no realistic ability to compete with them economically.

We used to produce things which the world wanted and needed and today there are very few things which we produce that the world wants more of or needs. Suddenly free international trade is a disadvantage to the United States.

Is there a traditional conservative capitalist solution to this economic dilemma if the tyrants are big rich capitalists themselves? The answer is clearly no. A perfect example was the organic food movement which promoted small independent family organic farms at its inception. What happened? Many organic farms were bought up by big business food companies and new independent small business organic farmers now have a harder time remaining independent.

USDA certified organic standards which are low to begin with are being lobbied by multinational food companies in an effort to reduce the standards even lower. Even worse much prime agricultural US land is being bought by foreign countries since the federal government and many state governments don’t have rules against foreign ownership.

The only possible solution to the problem is to NOT TAX the independent US organic farmers, independent organic farm distributors, and organic only independent retail establishments such as restaurants. If licensed independent US organic producers, distributors, and sellers CAN’T legally be bought up by big money then maybe there is a chance that capitalism in modified form can work again from the ground up. The result will be a return of wealth back to private, independent, single ownership in the long run. This is a just capitalistic redistribution of wealth with a small adjustment in government laws. It is not a brute force distribution by the government of wealth to many who don’t deserve it or haven’t earned it at taxpayer’s expense.

Perhaps the same solution can be applied to minimally polluting small licensed independent producers of goods made only in the United States with national resources only. Don’t tax them at all and don’t let big money buy them up! If we don’t tax them then it may become a David vs. Goliath economy where the small US business man or woman is not bullied or bought up by big money and they can prosper again for the benefit of the nation as a whole.

Yes, a just capitalistic system is still possible but the government laws and taxes must be changed to accomplish this in favor of the independent US producers only. Obviously if a small independent business sells foreign products then they will not escape taxation. Call this new approach national capitalism if you want.

Big business does not need to be taxed at higher levels but definitely eliminate all the legal loopholes and subsidies which make them pay almost no taxes at all and permit them to use and sell more and more foreign products.

Bad news. Politicians of either party have no real solutions to this economic dilemma except perhaps buying citizen votes with a guaranteed annual income and more socialist welfare spending thus making it attractive to live on a government dole and assuring government bankruptcy in the long run.

Join me in my crusade to resurrect the “made in the USA” small independent business man or woman by disseminating these ideas to as many humans as you can, especially if they are in powerful positions and can be movers and shakers in this crusade. Ultimately it is the profit motive which motivates change and if you can make a profit and pay no taxes at all then you will have an advantage over those who are paying taxes and promoting foreign goods.

Money changes the world and I have presented you with a revolutionary capitalist idea which could work in the real world if implemented. This nationalist idea, if implemented, can save the USA economically in the long run.  So, do you want to be a modern conservative national capitalist? Spread the faith and believe that the recommended changes will be made in the near future. Make “made in the USA” a proud symbol again before it is too late!

Title: Danger: A general overview of a future globalist socialism

Does this need further editing?

With the gradual collapsing of common morality or ethics in society the leadership, dominant in the legacy media, is beginning to proclaim that they are the moral leadership which will cure all social and economic ills with their socialist globalist ideology. The days of the individual with integrity, financial and family responsibility, and a love of country are biting the dust. Most of the leadership wants to forcefully redistribute the wealth of hard working middle class Americans to those who have earned almost nothing so that most can spend it by consuming the products of international corporations making these corporations even richer than before. The wealth and wage inequality grows and the rich benefit the most causing most of the population to subsist on meager wages.

This is what is actually going on and socialist ideology is what is making this gradual transformation of the American deficit economy into eventual third world status possible. “Free” money for paying off student loans, money for inefficient green energy projects, standardized medical care for everyone, a guaranteed national income, and generous support for illegal aliens is just the beginning of a never ending cycle of throwing money at a problem now and making it worse in the long run. The problem with socialism is that you soon run out of money for pet socialist projects, ruin the economy, and then have to restore order with draconian tyrannical approaches to governing a decimated nation.

Much American farmland is being purchased by foreign nations, American businesses are being bought up by other nations, and most insidious of all traditional American values of independence, responsibility, and hard work are being usurped by an egalitarian entitlement socialist ideology. This ideology preaches collective equality and decimates the idea of advancement based on individual merit and replaces it with advancement based on political affiliation and ideological belief. This is especially true in academia, the future source of American leadership. Yes, and future leaders may mostly be Democrats.

Trump was merely a temporary aberration for the globalists who will be laughing all the way to the bank with a Biden win. It is not just China who will be owning a lot of America but the globalists will own whatever is left over. Sad but true, America will probably not be great again because the globalists don’t want America to have nationalist protectionist tendencies.

Almost all knowledgeable conservatives are retreating into alt tech internet companies like Parler because they all know that big tech is censoring their conservative ideas and websites with bottom of the list search results. We now don’t have a fear of the monarchy which our founding fathers had but now have to fear the growing power of a tech monarchy. This tech monarchy is starting to censor moral free speech and is making it harder for intelligent conversations to exist in a realm of politically correct vocalizations which try to blacklist dissenting viewpoints, especially conservative ones.

Importing moral and technical talent from abroad is no longer that easy in an era of increasing civil unrest and economic decline. Talented individuals want to emigrate to a land of plenty and a land of opportunity and these national benefits are becoming scarcer with each passing year.

My largest concern is for the moral, ethical, or spiritual state of the common young American who is being brainwashed in our educational system to almost a moron status without a realistic knowledge of American history, the constitution, budgeting, and how to have a happy heterosexual family with responsible finances and good paying jobs.

What I actually believe and predict is that America will eventually be ruled by a technocratic elite and it probably won’t matter that much if the masses are poorly educated and brainwashed in a dysfunctional egalitarian socialist ideology and leading lives of dysfunctional desperate financial enslavement. Today the future does not seem very bright for the continued dominance of the USA both politically and economically in the world which is showing its new found economic muscle and ideological proclivity towards socialism.

Forceful redistribution of wealth is not the answer to future prosperity because producing things which the world needs and wants is the one and only true answer to our economic ills. The tragedy is that someone else in the world is producing things cheaper and they are things which we need and want and can no longer compete to produce ourselves. We are addicted to consuming the products of the world and we are producing little of what the world needs or wants.

America is rich in natural resources and long overdue are tax incentives to make manufacturing US goods competitive with the rest of the world. Utilizing robotics in manufacturing may be a partial answer. Educating more in STEM fields is a necessary long term solution.

Title: Capsocialism: A just national economic system

Uldis Sprogis

Does this need further editing?

International global capitalism has accelerated the wealth gap between the haves and the haves very little in almost every country at the expense of wilderness and wildlife and have established a wealthy ruling class in almost every country of the world. Once in power the way to maintain that power is to have a socialist ideology to assure that those in power will maintain rule over the mass of humans working for meager wages and drastically reduce the ability of the individual to compete with monopolistic dominance in the marketplace. Call it an aristocracy of the wealthy ruling over a new form of slave labor where you have the freedom to change jobs but only if you find another job working for another large corporation at similar low wages.

It is true that if you are unemployed and also destitute then you need a safety net of government assistance to survive in this world so you really need a form of socialism for the unemployed and also destitute. That said the government assistance should not be so great that it takes away your incentive to go back to work once you are on government welfare. Make government welfare too attractive to live on and the nation will eventually go bankrupt financially with no hope of recovery.

How do you put the incentive to live financially responsibly back into socialism which so desperately needs it?

Create two classes of citizens. One class the destitute and unemployed who are totally dependent on the government and the other a working class which is totally responsible for its own medical care, unemployment costs, and child support. If you bankrupt yourself with medical costs, unemployment costs, or child costs then you become a member of the destitute and unemployed class totally dependent on the government with a low standard of living and little free choice.

If you are totally dependent on the government then your voting rights will be less or a fraction of the voting rights of working citizens. You will lose your right to a motorized vehicle and be dependent on government door to door delivery of basic standardized needs such as food, drink, clothing, sanitary needs, cell phone, and computer and you will live mostly in high rise apartment dwellings with or without offspring.

If you are single then you will be sharing that apartment with other welfare recipients sleeping in bunk beds more than one to a room. In effect it should be a prison like system without locks so you have the incentive to go on the internet and get reeducated in a useful job which will result in mobility freedom and the luxury of purchasing what you want and when you want it. Yes, there will once again be an incentive to get back into the work force and enjoy basic luxuries such as food and drink which you like and a dwelling in a location of your personal choice.

Yes, incentive can be put back into a socialist system but you will need two classes of citizens with different political voting power so that those on welfare do not enslave the working class of citizens. What is this new updated form of socialism called? It can be called Capsocialism or a mixture of responsible capitalism with the social need for a safety net for the destitute and also unemployed.

EVERY HUMAN IS NOT EQUAL ALL THE TIME and if you are destitute and unemployed then you are not equal to the working citizens of a nation. One person one vote because everyone is equal all the time? No they are not! If everyone has equal voting power throughout their lifetime then communism is the long duration unjust result. Yes, as soon as you are employed you get back your full voting rights. The concept of human equality in its present form is outdated and needs radical revision.

Financially independent responsible healthy citizens and families are the necessary backbone of a just society and that means that you should be rewarded for being healthy, having a job, and responsibly taking care of your offspring. If you aren’t healthy, don’t have a job, and can’t take care of your offspring financially then you should be punished with a lower standard of living than the employed financially responsible humans.

This kind of a just society promotes the reproduction of healthy, educated, good parents who feel a caring responsibility for their offspring. Once again responsible citizens will be justly rewarded and financially irresponsible uneducated citizens without a job will be punished justly for their irresponsibility. There will be an incentive to remain healthy, to be educated with a job, and to have offspring only if you can afford them financially.

Landing Your First Job With a High School Education or Less

Perhaps the hardest thing to do is to try and land a job without prior job experience. Another problem is that many jobs these days are part time jobs instead of full time jobs which pay less and will not pay your bills unless you are living with your parents or sharing living accommodations with more than one room mate. Another drawback is that if you have an expensive bad habit like smoking, drinking alcohol, or taking drugs then your expenses may quickly exceed your income and your on the job performance will suffer.

Another important consideration is to analyze your personality and determine whether you are a people person or have social skills or whether you are not good with people and are more of an introvert and prefer to do things on your own with minimal human interaction. If you like to work on your own then a possible starting job may be delivering something with a car or van or working in a fast food place but not at the cash register. Working alone you could also be a records clerk/data entry worker, dishwasher, stock clerk, lab assistant, entry level painter, or janitor.

If you enjoy talking to people then working as a receptionist, entry level caregiver, entry level customer service representative, sales, retail sales associate, baby sitter or nanny, waitress, waiter, or server, or a store clerk may be a starting point.

Some humans start out having a passion for something or an ultimate goal of what they would like to do with their lives but most unfortunately don’t have any long term plans for their lives and are living day to day just mostly killing time with entertainment pursuits or not doing much of anything. In effect they are not hard workers and prefer to goof off and take each day one at a time. If you have trouble getting up on time for a job and are not punctual and don’t show up for work on time then you have a severe handicap which will easily get you fired.

For males an important consideration is whether you have good coordination or are good with your hands and enjoy working hard at building or making things or whether you are a little clumsy and just have keyboard or cellphone skills. If you are physically strong then a building or repair trade may be for you but if you are not that physical then office or service work may be your only recourse.

Another handicap may be that you are living in a relatively small town and the job opportunities in your immediate surroundings are just not that great or diverse. This is where having a lot of friends or acquaintances may help as a networking

tool to keep you informed of what job opportunities may exist in your small town. As a general rule social networking is an invaluable tool which may make you aware of immediate job openings that you could try to apply for. As in any business who you know sometimes is much more important than what you know in a starting job environment. You may wind up working and saving up enough money to make a risky move to a bigger city with more opportunities in the job market.

The ideal worker is a drug free, punctual, hard worker who will even do a job they don’t like so much but do the best job that they can when they are doing it. Life is hard for most humans and chances are that you will be doing a lot of unsatisfying jobs when you first start out in the job world without higher education.

Without prior working experience your resume becomes very important. It greatly helps if you have had good grades in school and have participated in many school clubs or sports activities showing that you are a doer who doesn’t sit on his or her ass and is engaged with the world. Of course it helps if you have had some work experience as a dog walker, lawn mower, house cleaner, food preparer, etc. to show that you like to work and are not just a couch potato at home.

First impressions are important in a job interview so you should definitely be on time and perhaps a little early for your interview and show good personal hygiene with a neat and clean appearance. The internet is the most common place to look for job openings in your town or city so you should become skilled at using a computer or your cellphone to access the internet. A good resume is important so research this topic on the internet and get some good guidance on what to emphasize in your resume making it short and simple and to the point.

Some current internet job sites are indeed.com, linkedin.com, glassdoor.com, and simplyhired.com.

SOLAR ENERGY ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES

Trump placed a 30% tariff on imported solar cells so foreign manufacturers are slowly shifting their production to the United States which is a good thing for American workers but in the long run we run the risk of no longer being a technological and scientific leader in the field and having reasonable control over the industry which will become more vital to the health and wellbeing of electrical generation in the nation.

It is a fact of life that currently and at least for the next 20 or 40 years, gasoline will continue to be the cheapest way to generate electricity for the consuming public and we will have plenty of it from our own shores. Unfortunately all non renewable sources of energy eventually run out and what concerns me the most is that future generations will eventually have to switch to other sources of energy and preferably they will be abundant and affordable to the consuming public.

It really comes down to a question of short or long term planning. Do we start planning for the future by making some financial sacrifices now or do we wait until there is a crisis situation and we must radically change our electrical infastructure almost overnight? I used to think that market forces would somehow make the switch from gasoline to an alternate energy source rather seamless but I fear that our leadership in the field will be lost if we don’t invest in solar energy now to some extent.

It is a fact of life that we will some day run out of non renewable energy sources but we will always potentially have the energy from the sun. Yes, not all areas of the globe have abundant sunlight which is often reduced in intensity by rain, snow, clouds, air dust pollution, and worst of all night time when there is no sun and solar cells are useless.

Solar cells will always need a backup system which today is natural gas, gasoline, and nuclear energy. The real solution to the problem is of course storage batteries but this technology is still in its infancy and we probably can’t expect efficient batteries for another 20 years or so which will be price competitive.

Current solar cells have an efficiency of about 22% which should be around 40% to compete with gasoline prices. The first solar cells had an efficiency of about 12% so in about 40 years the efficiency has increased by about 100%. If this is any indication of future efficiency increases then maybe in another 20 years the efficiency will double and solar energy will really become competitive with gasoline. Yes, today we will pay higher prices for electricity if solar energy is used partially for power generation but we can hope with technological development and scientific advances that future solar cells will be an efficient way to generate energy from a renewable source, sun power.

It could be argued that with inefficient use of solar cells a billion dollar wasteful industry will form but more research money will be poured into making solar cells more efficient so in the long run humanity will benefit from an inefficient investment in solar cells today.

FREE WILL

Our notion of free will depends on how we chose to define free and will which are two words that we are supposedly trying to relate or find a correspondence.

The best way to define free is to say that free is the freedom to behave without bounds or limits. One thing that we could all agree on is that young children with a poorly developed moral or ethical sense or beliefs have fewer bounds or limits on their behavior than adults who believe in ethical principles which limit their behavior options. On the other hand adults can do many more physical behaviors than children like drive a car, fly an airplane, play tennis, go to a restaurant or go anywhere as far as your budget will let you. So adults have more freedom to do things which children can’t do for physical, financial, or legal reasons.

Will is really a desire so we can talk about all the desires which you might have. Some desires are tied to the real world so they are desires which are real and achievable and some desires are imaginary and not bounded or limited by real world constraints. So desires can be imaginary like wanting to travel to a distant solar system or real desires like wanting to eat a breakfast of bacon, eggs, and bread. Imaginary desires seem to have no limits or boundaries but real desires are limited by our physical, financial, and legal existence.

So instead of free will ask the question is there such a thing as free desires? The answer is that imaginary desires are freer than physical desires but both are limited or bounded by our knowledge and ability to fulfill those desires. So free desires are really unbounded or unlimited desires which we can all have to some extent. An example of an unlimited desire would be a desire to be the richest human in the universe. Another example of unlimited desire is wanting to be a god who is omniscient and omnipotent.

Many humans confuse the fact that free will or free desires are not the same thing as free choice or the freedom to choose. Unlimited or boundless choices are not realistic but imaginary. The freedom to choose among limited or specified options is often real. You can’t choose to eat any animal in the universe which would be an unlimited choice but you can choose to eat any meat offered in the restaurant or supermarket which has limited choices.

So do we have free will or free desires without limits? Yes, but they are imaginary which some humans call illusions.

Anatomy of free speech

Free speech is guaranteed by the first amendment of the United States constitution. But we know that some free speech is unacceptable in the public sphere. Intentionally lying about a human, unjustly calling one a thief, adulterer, or addict and threatening to murder one are all immoral or unethical actions which should have legal consequences, especially if done so publicly. If you intentionally lie to someone in private then trust is destroyed and the relationship will probably end without legal consequences.

Morality is slightly different in different cultures and is really a personal code of ethics which one believes in, especially in a nation where diverse religions are permitted and morality differs slightly in each religion. For practical purposes when I use the word ethics then it also means moral values and unethical means immoral values.

Then there is a problem of labeling free speech private or public since social media sites like Twitter and Facebook blur the line between what is truly private and what is public discourse. It is a fact that Twitter and Facebook are both considered private corporations which are private in name only but have many of the characteristics of a public forum such as cable TV and public radio which are regulated by government laws. Policing and censoring cable TV and radio discourse is relatively easy compared to the insurmountable problem of policing and censoring the spontaneous audio visual speech of billions of private humans on Twitter and Facebook.

Between private individuals insults, name calling, put downs, ridicule, humiliation, profanities, and severe criticism could theoretically be called “hate speech” but there are no legal consequences. In a public forum how do you censor “hate speech” without destroying comedy and satire which depends on the freedom to insult, ridicule, name call, etc.? Publicly censoring this freedom of expression threatens to make discourse between humans sterile and robotic with an emphasis on being politically correct and super civil rather than on being free to indulge in some of the joys of humorous ribbing discourse.

Social media is not only humans speaking freely but behaving freely such as on Tik Tok and Instagram so a further question arises. What free audio video behavior is acceptable and what behavior is to be censored? Do we permit humans to behave violently towards each other, engage in simulated rape scenes, display pedophelia or child porn, display beastiality or sex with animals, bondage, bullying, murder, and suicide? Free speech now becomes a question of free behavior too. The question of what is a simulated crime scene done by actors vs what is a real crime scene becomes blurred on audio visual social media.

The tragedy is that absolute or total free speech is a precursor to absolute or total free behavior which ultimately leads to chaos and an increase in criminal behavior. It is really a question of what we consider to be unethical or what we consider to be criminal and punishable by law. So the apparent solution is really one of agreeing on which universal cultural norms are to be considered ethically acceptable and legal and which ones are to be considered unethical and not acceptable and illegal.

So what is to be done? One possibility is a constitutional amendment to change free speech to ethical free speech. Of course you can then argue who will determine what is ethical free speech and who will be in charge of the censorship? Self censorship is an inescapable responsible option which will have to be made by corporations and individuals if they don’t want to be punished by the law which makes unethical speech and behavior illegal.

Historically religion determined what is morally or ethically acceptable normative behavior but in this modern era where secular humans are playing the role of God it may be necessary to define what we mean by desirable integrity which is what honesty and ethical behavior means. If you are dishonest or lie then trust or the bond which makes peaceful human interaction between humans possible is destroyed leading to chaos and anarchy followed by tyranny.

A largely secular state will have to define a universal secular ethical code to be obeyed by all or we will descend into totalitarianism which will arbitrarily determine what is ethical based on the whim of one dictator or one political party. An example of a universal secular ethical code which could be formalized in the constitution would be- in non emergency situations- don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder.

But we are really talking here about the indoctrination of ignorant, impressionable, secular elementary school students with a simple universal secular ethical code or normative values. This code or normative values should be practiced even in adulthood as much as possible for a peacefully interacting society where trust has not been destroyed for the vast majority.

Ethical free speech followed by ethical free behavior should be the ideal goal of any ongoing society if it is considered to be a just society where individual rights and individual responsibility are protected for the benefit of most law abiding humans within the collective society.

The internet has blurred the difference between what was once considered private speech and behavior and what is considered public speech and behavior and there is really a battle going on to protect what little personal privacy there is left. When all privacy is gone then who will be in charge of all this audio visual information and who will be judging whether this information is to be prosecuted by the law for illegalities? Will we all be cowering in fear for fear that the government will find out and punish us for disagreeing with it? It is scary to hypothetically foresee a day when the land of the free and brave will be the land of the cowering timid slaves living under a tyrannical censoring government.

Despite this hypothetical doomsday scenario I feel optimistic that in the long run the spirit of the American people will survive along with most of the constitution. The land of the ethical, free and brave will endure for many more generations to come. To be vigilant, be aware of and understanding the anatomy of free speech is the first step towards taking actions to ensure that ethical free speech will be guaranteed for every law abiding human in the nation of the free and brave on into the foreseeable future.

Analyzing the anatomy of free speech really reveals the eternal human struggle to try and define ethical speech and behavior vs absolute or total free speech and free behavior which can be very destructive in the short and long run for society to tolerate since an overabundance of absolute free speech always leads to chaos and criminality. While there is religion, separation of church and state is important but in a predominantly secular nation of the future, a secular ethical code as part of the constitution is essential for the nation to peacefully and justly survive without tyranny.

WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST THREATS TO AMERICA?

Broadly speaking there are important external foreign threats and important internal national threats which a vast majority have no personal control over. Then there are external personal threats and internal personal threatening dysfunctions which can be blamed on bad parenting, bad education, bad addictions, character flaws, and faulty beliefs and opinions.

The major ongoing national foreign threat is the criminal CCP of China which lies, steals, and even murders to maintain tyrannical national power. The CCP plans to dominate economically and strategically via a strong military as much of the world as possible using lies, theft, and murder if it furthers the national objectives. Fortunately the rest of the world is waking up to the unethical colonial like ambitions of the CCP and frankly may fear China but no longer respects China as a reliable potential ally and a friendly or benign nation.

Scarier 4 foreign threats are cyber warfare, biological warfare, nuclear warfare, and EMP or electromagnetic pulses from a nuclear explosion in orbital space which can totally disrupt internet communications and electronic grids with deadly consequences for entire nations.

Fortunately no nation would probably own up to these four kinds of warfare because that nation would be automatically attacked and destroyed by counter measures. It would be a form of suicide to even try to unleash such devastation. We are talking here about a form of feared assured mutual destruction which is a major reason why we haven’t had a nuclear war yet and why biological and cyber warfare is quite unlikely on a massive scale. Sure, we will probably have more pandemics in the future and more ransomware and malware attacks on private businesses and government entities but wholesale destruction is highly unlikely to occur in the near future.

The major ongoing national internal threats are an out of control national debt, too high taxes, and censorship of moral or ethical free speech which is an invitation to tyrannical or authoritarian rule by the government and monopolistic big tech. The national debt can be reduced by less government spending coming from a smaller government and eliminating a lot of laws hampering the prosperity and expansion of small businesses which are now really competing against international corporations which makes it an unfair competition with monopolistic oppression.

Censorship of moral free speech is a serious looming threat because if you can’t freely express your political or social views in public and in public forums then imposition of censoring tyrannical or authoritarian rule is inescapable and individual human rights and liberties are going to be gradually extinguished.

External personal threats to children and adults are internet criminals, pollution of education with toxic academic ideologies such as forced diversity and cancel culture which are assaults on meritocracy, individual responsibility, the work ethic, and moral or ethical free speech. Lowered educational standards make us less competitive with the rest of the world.

Addictive illegal and legal drugs are perhaps the greatest personal threat with a practice of escaping reality by taking a pill for anything which may trouble you. Pills or drugs are often an escape from reality and seldom cure what ails you but rather complicates your life with side effects which further exacerbate depression, anxiety, and mental illness in one form or another.  Tabloid like media, and a culturally ignorant new generation not schooled in the constitution and moral or ethical principles are all personal external threats.

Some are beginning to argue that tech tools which are the internet, social media and their content are harmful to the young generation mentally and physically. But used properly the internet and social media are great sources for self education and local, national, and international communication, especially for adults.

Libel, slander, and violence threats are realistic concerns for the internet and social media. Less clear is what if anything should be done with insults, ridicule, put downs, name calling, humiliation, and severe criticism which far too many are beginning to label as “hate speech” which is to be aggressively censored and blacklisted. But who should have the power to censor and blacklist “hate speech” and is it even wise to try and do so?

Internal personal dysfunctions are also a major threat to the inhabitants of America. Personal addictions to legal and illegal drugs, alcoholism, gambling, promiscuity, pornography, excessive shopping, gluttony, and pedophelia can all be contributary causes to personal, family, and social dysfunctions causing a lot of unhappiness and misery, divorce, economic hardship, and even bankruptcy. Too many come from dysfunctional single parent homes and fewer and fewer have happy heterosexual role model parents and peers who are drug free and have integrity, are dependable, hardworking, ambitious, competent, and have a healthy positive attitude on life.

So in conclusion, America will probably not be destroyed overnight but will continue to decline economically and culturally and the individual will gradually lose more freedoms. Will tyrannical or authoritarian control by the government be our future? Only time will tell.

Draconian oppression by the government will probably not work in the long run since there is considerable rising resistance to oppressive government lockdowns and vaccine mandates. If we lose our freedoms then it will probably be by gradually introducing oppressive national laws which are then enforced by corrupt judges, the FBI, and local police.

The biggest threats to America should not lurch you into panic mode and Armageddon like fears.
