WHY MOST HUMANS CAN NO LONGER FIND PURPOSE IN THEIR LIVES

Clear-Sense-Of-Purpose

Nature has purpose. Find or grow food, get shelter from predators or the environment, and reproduce the next generation.

Historically humans had purpose in their lives. Get an education, get a moral education, work at a job, buy food, shelter, transportation, and basic necessities and have a family.

Today in society few get the proper education, few get a moral education, few find good paying jobs, few can afford to live in a family setting and support offspring, and most are brainwashed and handicapped by a hedonistic culture which emphasizes fun and entertainment without responsibilities.

Many are depressed feeling that their lives have no purpose because they have no job or a bad job and can’t afford to live a fulfilling family life. Many more have no moral code to live by and are lousy at human relationships because relativistic ethics does not give useful answers on how to live a fulfilling life in this modern demanding ever changing technological 21st century.

Computers, robots, the internet, and big business are eliminating many historically fulfilling jobs which required much skill and gave people a sense of independence, self-worth, and fulfillment.

Increasingly more and more people are feeling unwanted, unnecessary, and incompetent and are losing a sense of purpose in their lives. Welcome to the brave new world where more and more people will be living destitute and unemployed and on government welfare!

Sure, there will always be humans who will find purpose in their lives by putting in the time, effort, and reeducation to land a good paying job and have a successful family life because they have a strong morality and know how to form trustworthy honest relationships with other humans. Unfortunately, their numbers are being drastically reduced and most of the population is destined to live without purpose in their lives.

Get used to living without purpose or try to do something about it and try to improve your life. My evergreen book HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR LIFE: HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT; HOW TO SAVE TIME AND MONEY is worth reading if having purpose in your life is important to you.

If you want real purpose in your life then try to live it with a strong secular moral code to guide you. My suggestion to the new generation is a secular moral code which in a nutshell is don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder. This can give meaning and purpose to secular future generations into the foreseeable future and it can give purpose to your seemingly depressing hopeless life.

11 RULES OF LIFE FOR YOUNG ADULTS

high-speed-water-splash-photography-fist-punch

Rule 1: Life does not seem fair for many of us who have no job, a bad job, and bad relationship skills. Get used to it or do something about it and improve your skills!

Rule 2: The world will not care about your self esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will not earn $60,000 straight out of high school. You WILL NOT be a vice president with a car phone until you’ve earned both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait until you get a boss.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping; they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it’s not your parent’s fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes. Learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try de-lousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers but life HAS NOT. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and will give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to anything in real life.

RULE 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

RULE 10: Television is not real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

RULE 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one!

STAY HAPPY AND HEALTHY BY EATING EVERYTHING IN MODERATION WITH A LITTLE EXERCISE

tips_for_healthy_eating_postnoon_news

Most of us are not eating right. Most of us are stuck with bad eating habits where we eat too much high calorie nutrition deficient fast food, too much sweet overly processed food which includes sodas, energy drinks, and deserts such as donuts, cake, and cookies. We eat too little variety because we have been addicted to a predictable bad habit of eating the same limited foods over and over again because we like their taste and for no logical reason other than that.

 

False fad diets to reduce weight and lopsided vegan diets which leave about 97% of vegans deficient in vitamin B12 and other nutrients found in meat destroy the variety of foods necessary for a healthy varied omnivore diet. Unless you have a food allergy you should be eating a little of everything in moderation to stay healthy and add a little exercise such as walking fast for about 20 minutes about three times a week.

 

Most of us are not experimental eaters because nature has programmed us to be wary of new foods which had the potential of poisoning us in the wild historically. We are emotionally afraid of new foods!!! Once we develop eating food habits we tend to stick with them for life unless threatened with bad health and then we sometimes force ourselves to change our diets. To eat healthy again you have to overcome the emotional resistance your mind has to new and better foods.

 

What you have to overcome is personal food biases which are mental handicaps to better more varied eating. I never eat nuts and sour cream with a salad, I never drink milk after a hearty dinner, I would never add cheese, clams, eggs, and veggies to chicken noodle soup, I would never eat yogurt after eating meat or a burger, I would never add veggies to a hamburger patty, I would never add nuts or real fruit to my cereal, I would never add small chunks of blood sausage to beef stew, etc. This reluctance to mix foods or to try to add new ones to a recipe is the major handicap which all of us will have to overcome to eat more nutritiously.

 

The fact is that adding a good tasting food to a good tasting food very frequently results in an even better tasting more nutritious food. If there is a food which you don’t like the taste of independently then consider adding it in small quantities to a food which you like so that you barely taste it. Adding a little broccoli, sprouts, kale or spinach etc. to your favorite soup will make it more nutritious and healthy and you will barely notice the difference.

 

If you want the nutritional value of ten or more herbs then add them to your favorite soup in almost imperceptible amounts and you will have increased the nutritional value of your soup without sacrificing good taste.

 

Experiment with food. If it is a new food and it is certified organic then it is probably something which you should include in your diet. If you don’t like the taste of a food and it is not repulsive, then add a little of it to foods or recipes which you like. Force yourself to experiment with new varied foods and you won’t need the illusory lopsided vitamin and mineral supplements which humans consume thinking that they are compensating for not eating a healthy varied nutritious diet. Instead of artificial food supplements add a little bee pollen to some of your meals which is gotten from many natural flowers and is highly nutritious with a boatload of vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients.

 

If you have any favorite recipes then EXPERIMENT by adding small quantities of other good foods to it. Variety is the spice of life when it comes to food and your meals will not only be more interesting but more healthy and nutritious also.

 

Final note: Some of us are addicted to fast food because we feel that we don’t have the time to make food ourselves or we simply like the taste and have developed a habit of eating it exclusively. If you refuse to change then at least eat a variety of fast foods in moderation. Eat pizza, burgers, chicken, tacos, burritos, sandwiches, etc. from more than one fast food place and try to patronize an outfit like Chipotles which tries to serve some organic food. A large variety of fast food from many companies is better and more nutritious than just eating at one favorite fast food outlet and definitely healthier.

CONCLUSION: Don’t eat just one food or a handful of foods but eat hundreds of different foods in small quantities or in moderation. Try to eat more unsweetened, unprocessed, non GMO and certified organic foods as close to their natural state as possible.

TEACHING 10 MONEY MANAGEMENT TIPS TO OFFSPRING

kids-and-money2

It is most important to teach offspring that food, shelter, clothing, entertainment and everything costs money. In effect even living and burning food calories in your body costs money and that money is the equivalent of energy or it is usually a form of stored energy in the form of mass or matter. You can teach that a bought object, mass, or matter usually loses value or money with time and it is called depreciation. Stress that there are certain objects such as rare coins or rare objects or limited editions which may increase in money value with time if they are maintained in unused pristine condition and can sometimes become valuable antiques.

 

Explain the concept of saving up to buy something where every penny and dollar counts and where a sales tax must be paid. Once offspring can count to a hundred it is time to teach money details such as it takes 100 pennies to make up a dollar and that $2.55 is two dollars, two quarters, and five cents. Teach them to use a calculator.

Dropping small change in more than one piggy bank can teach the concept of saving for the long duration such as a college education or a car and saving for the short duration such as saving for a bicycle, laptop, shoes, and football or baseball.

 

You can use your own money on a weekly basis to give to your offspring to deposit on a regular basis into your piggy bank for a bicycle instead of buying it instantly yourself and giving the bicycle as a free gift to your offspring. Show your offspring that you too must save to buy them a gift.

 

You can give your offspring an allowance but stress that it is for helping around the house and use real examples of chores which you expect the offspring to do on a regular basis. Examples are taking out the garbage, bringing groceries from the car to the house, vacuuming, cleaning the carpetless floors, washing the dishes and putting them back in the cabinets, putting the dishes and silverware into the dishwasher, washing the car, doing the laundry, hanging up clothes and putting laundry away in the cabinet drawers, preparing food and putting it on the table, shopping for food, mowing the grass, etc. In effect teach your offspring adult chores around the house and expect them to do it as soon as they are physically able to do so for a weekly allowance of 1 to 10 dollars depending on their age and what is permitted by the household budget.

 

You can encourage their long duration savings by adding an extra 50 cents for every long duration dollar saved in the piggy bank. When the amount in the long duration savings bank gets big enough then open up a bank savings account in their name and deposit their long duration savings which should not be spent on current desires. The concept of compound interest can be taught which is money that makes more money if invested properly.

 

Explain brand name and generic purchases with the same ingredients and tell them that they can save money by buying generic brands and get the same value for a purchase. When they are old enough introduce them to the game of Monopoly, Life, and Cashflow 101 which is a game which teaches accounting, finance, and investing at the same time. The more financially literate your offspring become the more intelligent choices your offspring will make in life.

 

When they are old enough explain that buying with credit cards and not paying the money back on time means an additional cost to the purchased item. This additional percentage makes it more expensive to buy in the long duration. Encourage your children to learn to budget their money with the help of a debit card where they do not learn to live beyond their means with the credit card philosophy. Except for a house mortgage, stress that all debt where you are paying interest of 5% to18% a year, such as on a credit card, is bad debt.

 

Don’t encourage offspring to invest in the stock market. It has become a gambling crap shoot where you will only lose money in the long duration most of the time. The stock market has become an unpredictable volatile pricing system where hedge funds, big money, and billionaires are responsible for most of the moves in the market. Prices no longer accurately reflect the fundamentals of the stock and the risky new companies which rise quickly in price are soon absorbed by larger companies once they are successful and reach a certain size. The big businesses or virtual monopolies have very little growth potential unless they are international in scope and the value of the stock will barely keep up with yearly inflation if even that much. The new stock market with its emphasis on risky short duration gain is no longer a good long duration investment in most cases.

 

Teach your offspring the value of the environment and make them contribute some money to the World Wildlife Fund, The Nature Conservancy, the Sierra Club or some other reputable wildlife conservation society.

INTERNATIONAL BANKS CONTROL THE WORLD ECONOMY

international-bank-logo-1

Chinese, American, UK, German, and Japanese international banks effectively control most of the world economy and no bank is dependent on the financial health of one nation. This means that jobs are being outsourced to nations with the lowest cost in energy and lowest labor costs and greatest natural resources. In effect jobs are being outsourced to nations which bring back the largest profits on the manufactured goods.

 

International banking and corporations, robotization, standardization of parts, and the internet are concentrating the money into fewer and fewer hands and waging war on the middle class which is the big looser in most developed nations. 

 

The reason there is minimal inflation in the United States despite an increase in the deficit by 4 trillion dollars since 2009 is that most of the money was not spent in the United States but went overseas to pay off bad American bank high risk loans to foreign banks, corporations, and countries. The debt burden is being squarely placed on the shoulders of future taxpayers or the middle class and the upper 1% which is paying about 40% of all taxes.

 

Ultimately those countries in the future who will be prosperous will be the most efficient economies which use the least amount of energy, pay the lowest wages, have an abundant healthy food supply, many natural resources, and can balance their national budget and even show a profit by becoming more efficient bureaucratically.

 

The United States inefficiently uses energy and can’t balance the national budget largely due to deficit spending, an unfavorable trade balance, and unjust special interest bureaucratic laws. It is trying to rule the world with the American dollar and is not doing a very good job of it because other nations know that the United States is printing counterfeit dollars which is devaluing the dollar and making other nations reluctant to do long term business with America and American companies.

 

To be competitive in the future world economy most of the population will have to move to the big cities, use economic transportation, be heavily robotized, have many humans on welfare, and have a relatively small middle class. It will look much like a third world country with relatively few very rich at the top, a small middle class, and the majority living at or near the poverty level and on welfare.

 

 

In the future a highly skilled technological elite will be the ruling class and most of the population will be out of work and on welfare. The political system of one citizen one vote will have to be changed or the working class will become the slaves of the welfare class with more votes who will vote for more and more luxuries thus effectively enslaving the working class. Democracy, national laws, and the constitution in its original form will have to be radically updated because of modern economic and technological realities.

 

CONCLUSION: The future does not look promising for the middle class and if you are young then the chances will be great that you will be on some form of welfare for at least part of your life much before your retirement years. I hope that this depressing prediction will not happen but all economic indicators are showing that my prediction is a very probable scenario.

The emphasis on international optimal profit is devastating biodiversity and more importantly healthy food biodiversity which is essential to the long duration survival of humanity.

If the international banks were smarter then they would preserve and expand wilderness areas and invest heavily in organic farming. Ultimately the survival of humanity will depend on a safety net of healthy wilderness animals and plants when profit motivated technology devastates the health of the domestic food supply and makes it inedible or unhealthy for human consumption.

We desperately need a long duration investment by international banks in healthy food and wilderness areas which will pay off or profit future generations. Banks hell bent on short duration profit are endangering the future survival of humanity on the face of this precious endangered earth!!!!!!

We need healthy food much more than we need cheap monoculture standardized unhealthy food which is what the optimized short duration profit motive is giving us. Food is not just money but has intrinsic complex value greater than pure numerical money and it should be healthy and not cheap or made with the minimum input of money so that profits are the largest. Quality healthy food should not be cheap and it should be consumed by as many healthy humans as possible.

Priority number one for humanity is healthy food and drink and it is the most valuable long duration investment which can be made on this planet. To be truly complete and realistic the long duration investment must include the expansion of wilderness areas!!!!!!

THE MODERN LOVE MYTH TOO MANY BELIEVE IN

love-myths

MYTH: Fall madly in love, get married, and live happily ever after.

TRUTH: Learn enough skills to get a good paying job or career, fall madly in love, get married, and live happily ever after if your personalities are compatible.

That is the modern myth that many women and men still believe in and it is not the truth in far too many real life situations. Historically marriage heavily depended on a female dowry (money) which was a realization of the fact that having a family is an expensive responsible undertaking and that it requires much money to make a successful long duration relationship with offspring.

Today having fun and being attractive has taken center stage as prerequisites to a relationship with the opposite sex with catastrophic results. Family life is disintegrating for many as more and more adults remain single for a very long time. Many divorced women with children whom a male has abandoned largely for financial reasons are forced to go on welfare to support their single parent families and lifestyles.

Yes, there are still some couples who find financial security and true love at the same time which is the ideal romantic situation but there are far too many who don’t realize that money should not be ignored as a necessary foundation for a strong and lasting relationship.

If you are a woman and are not very attractive physically and without a job then the only relationships which you can realistically expect are dysfunctional ones with other males.

TRUTH: Whether you are a man or woman educate yourself with desirable skills and get a good paying job or career. Then start seriously looking for a lasting marital relationship. In the meantime be satisfied with the fact that you will probably have many short duration relationships with the opposite sex with or without sex and have to be satisfied with a rarely good and frequently bad time with the opposite sex and not much else.

A marriage frequently needs compatible personalities and looks but more important it needs a good amount of money to keep it going for the long duration, especially if you have offspring.
