THE TRUTH ABOUT SPECULATION

1speculation

Speculation: n. doing an investment which is frequently a very risky action(s) for short or long duration profit with a subset(s) which is frequently money

Speculation in its broadest sense can be thought of as taking a risk by investing in something which may increase or decrease in value with time.

Frequently speculative investments are very risky and considered to be rather unwise investments because you can lose all or most of the value in a rather short duration.

CAPSOCIALISM: THE JUST WORLDWIDE SOCIETY

Quotation-Deepak-Chopra-society-generations-Meetville-Quotes-209074

Sharing emotions about past events is called empathy but most of us think of sharing as the sharing of a possession or an experience with someone. 

Learning to share does not come naturally to offspring who are very possessive and don’t usually want to share their toys.

Philosophically communism is sharing property which no one legally owns and it has been an abysmal failure because something which one doesn’t own is usually something which one does not take care of very well.

Owning of property by two humans gives rise to an ethical question. If one breaks the property then who pays for fixing it or is responsible for fixing it? Is it both parties that have the responsibility to fix it or is the one responsible for breaking it the one who pays to fix it?

Communism says it is both parties that bear the responsibility for fixing it and that is why injustice is felt by individuals who basically have to pay for another’s mistakes which includes reproductive mistakes or mishandling of the property which should include your genetic offspring.

Mutual ownership is practiced by some rare communal groups and cooperatives but they are frequently not very stable organizations because someone always feels that one is getting most of the benefit out of communal property and the other is left shorthanded. That is why the right to private property and private offspring is such an important right since it assigns responsibility of the property to the owner of the property who then is responsible for taking care of it. If the owner of the property including offspring does not take care of it then they should be penalized for mishandling the property.

Taxation is sharing your wealth with the government bureaucracy and the general welfare. This is why humans think it is unjust if the government is doing an inefficient bureaucratic job and giving their money to special interests which do not benefit the general welfare. Citizens are only willing to share their wealth voluntarily if they feel that the government is doing a just distribution of their wealth for the whole nation.

If given the choice of being taxed or not taxed most citizens would voluntarily opt out because the present state of government is so unjust and most, except for the wealthy and those on welfare, feel that they are contributing more than their just share to the operation of government.

The higher the taxation the more communistic or socialistic a nation becomes and the less efficient and unjust it becomes in sharing your wealth with others.

Socialism is delegating personal responsibility to the government where government increasingly becomes a parental figure taking care of all of your life’s needs. If you become sick, it is paid for by others, if you have offspring they are subsidized or partially paid for by others, if you become unemployed you get generous financial support from others until you get another job.

That many citizens begin to work the system or milk it for maximum personal benefit is the result of socialism and this parasitic nature causes the costs for the nation to increase without any motivation to decrease the generous support in the long duration. 

You get rewarded generously for being sick, for being a mother with children, and for being unemployed. The result in the long duration is more sick humans, more unwed mothers with children on the dole, and many on never ending unemployment benefits. The incentive to work greatly decreases and the long duration result is a bankrupt social system where almost everyone prefers to be on government welfare benefits. The ultimate result of progressive socialism is a government ruling bureaucracy with everyone dependent on it or in reality communism which is a colossal historical failure.

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? I don’t have a name for it but it can be called Capsocialism or a mix 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.

Society will once again have just purpose and those financially responsible will reproduce in greater numbers than the financially irresponsible ones. Today the financially irresponsible members of society are being rewarded disproportionately and that is why all the responsible working citizens in the society sense profound injustice and there is family breakdown with the offspring suffering the most and handicapping the next generation.

A financially irresponsible society gets more unjust from generation to generation and a financially responsible society gets more just from generation to generation. You can control society with money in a just way or you can control society with money in an unjust way and I think that controlling society with money in a just way is preferable.

The financially poor are always at a disadvantage in any society because their education is relatively bad and useless and a cohesive family structure is not encouraged financially resulting in irresponsible behavior and a high crime rate. A lower standard of living WITHOUT MONEY to spend on drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, gambling, and unwise luxuries is necessary coupled with an incentive to get reeducated or educated in a useful job is vital.

Ultimately useful interactive audio visual education in the home for both parents and offspring should be the goal in an upwardly mobile society where a secure living environment exists for parents and offspring and a desire to get off of a standardized MONEY FREE living environment which has no special mobility and no freedom of choice to buy what you want and when your want.

Humans on welfare WITH MONEY TO FREELY SPEND make largely bad choices in food, drink, clothing, lifestyle, and education and they must be motivated to get usefully educated so that they can successfully join the financially responsible working class. Humans and offspring living in a drug free crime free environment with financial minimum security can be motivated to join the financially responsible working class through personal time, effort, and achievement educationally which is the foundation of a healthy responsible living lifestyle.

Everyone will not put in the necessary time, effort, and achievement to become employable so they will be destined to live a totally dependent welfare lifestyle for the rest of their lives. They will not be profligate money spending irresponsible spending units and will not cost the working taxpayers that much money and they will be living efficiently with minimum cost to the nation.

If they reproduce irresponsibly then they will not get more money from the government for additional offspring but will be punished by having to live with many adult offspring in a congested lifestyle for the rest of their lives if the offspring do not get properly educated and join the independent lifestyle of the working class.

Do you want to have badly educated adult offspring living with you for the rest of your life or are you going to make sure that they study hard and become employable members of society and go out and make it on their own leaving you to live in relative comfort in your old age?  

Just population control will exist in society and the financially poor will be incentivized to work hard at educating themselves so that they can become financially contributing members of society and not the other way around which is becoming lifelong parasites on the society and contributing nothing towards the general welfare of society.

Capsocialism will ultimately make political parties obsolete because the only financial issue will be how much money will go towards the support of the destitute and also unemployed. The other primary role of government will be to ensure the survival of biodiversity, wilderness, and a minimally polluted environment so that future generations can live healthy productive lives.

Do we really need pseudo political parties which unjustly benefit their special interests which is the very rich and those on welfare? Political parties are an unjust anachronism which change corrupt leadership and solve no social problems in the long duration.

China and Russia can also institute Capsocialism with only one party in control and create a just society without the need for giving voting rights to the public. Smart political leadership which solves social problems is what is needed and not stupid leadership which rewards profligate spending and irresponsible reproduction in society.

Capsocialism means that there will no longer be a need for government funded social workers who solve no social problems but make them worse. There will be less need for psychiatrists, doctors, and jails because the poor will be free of drug use and dysfunctional financially irresponsible lifestyles. They will not be involved in accident prone dangerous lifestyles and will be eating healthy standardized food which will result in minimal medical expense funded by the government.

The truly poor will have no free money to irresponsibly spend on social vices and society will improve from generation to generation and not become more dysfunctional from generation to generation.

The concept of true social freedom will have to change to one of true freedom only if you are financially responsible with money. If you are financially responsible with money then you are a true adult and can spend it almost any way that you choose provided that it does not endanger the lives of your fellow working citizens.

If you are not financially responsible then you are not an adult yet and will have to continue your education until you qualify for adult working responsibility. Adults on welfare are realistically only dependent children dependent on the taxpayer’s money and their lifestyles must be controlled or supervised as are the lifestyles of children.

How do you transition to a Capsocialism society? My evergreen truth books CHANGES IN WELFARE LAWS, EDUCATION REFORM, JUSTICE, and NEW CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES outline in somewhat great detail how this can be done. Join me in trying to make this world a more just society by promoting the principles of Capsocialism.

THE TRUTH ABOUT TALENT

logo-TalentSearch7

Talent: n. much natural ability whose dominant cause is hereditary

Talent or hereditary ability generally can be classified as an exceptional memory which is frequently verbal or mathematical or both and/or physical ability which is demonstrated by great strength and/or very good coordination.

Relatively few humans are multitalented both mentally and physically but if there should be a standard of human excellence then it should be one who is both mentally and physically multitalented.

Hard work can sometimes make up for an absence of talent but talent combined with hard work is an unbeatable combination which many celebrities and charismatic leaders have.

Far too many without much talent think that with enough hard work they can achieve almost any lofty goal. Unfortunately quite a few of them wind up being premature burnouts or serial failures from trying to do the impossible and fame and fortune eludes them.

You can be an idiot savant with a special talent in one area of expertise only but the truly talented have the ability to creatively manipulate all the information which they have learned and create new concepts and/or new useful rearrangements with it.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SHARING***

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Share: v. to contribute for mutual benefit such as alternating possession of a subset(s) and/or using a subset(s) at the same time by two or more lifeforms

THE TRUTH ABOUT TEAMWORK

Teamwork

Teamwork: n. interacting with more than one human trying to achieve the same goal(s).

The ideal team is competent individuals who know their skill set and can function relatively independently towards a common goal(s).

In the real world there are team members who need some assistance in the form of information and/or guidance to do the work successfully and this frequently requires input from the team leader and other members of the team. Feedback during the common goal(s) achievement is very important so that the work proceeds in an orderly timely way.

Sharing information and knowledge amongst team members is frequently also necessary so the interaction of the team is seldom a one on one interaction.

What may surface during teamwork is that an additional team member may be necessary or a current team member needs to be replaced with a better one.

In sports teamwork physical ability takes precedence with overall strategic advice incorporated into the game and knowing how to adjust to opposing team tactics. Sports teamwork is much more impulsive than corporate teamwork and doesn’t last that long unless you incorporate the time spent planning before a game too.

Keeping a team emotionally motivated despite inevitable failures along the way is very important and the team leader must have emotional IQ as well as a pretty good knowledge of what has to be done to complete a goal(s) successfully. It also helps if the team members are emotionally mature and not interested in goofing off, getting others to do their work, and backstabbing coworkers.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SELFMOTIVATION***

unnamed

Selfmotivation: n. motivated by one’s desire(s) and/or need(s) and/or belief(s) and/or past experiences which activate and/or prevent one’s behavior(s)

Many of us wrongly assume that all motivation is external from other humans and events which happen in our lives. The truth is that there is a complex interaction between external motivators and internal motivators which result in the behavior which we do.

The internal motivators are what is called selfmotivation and it is the desires, needs, beliefs, past experiences, and reactions to external factors which we personally possess. The internal motivation can either stimulate us to enthusiastically pursue a goal(s) or to cautiously pursue that goal(s) or to not pursue that goal(s) all mediated by what we personally largely impulsively think in our minds.

Before we do something everything in effect passes through our personal filter of desires, needs, beliefs, and past experiences which largely determines how we react to external stimuli.

If the world does not motivate you to become a better human then don’t entirely blame the world but put most of the blame on yourself and your absence of proper selfmotivation. Ultimately you have to motivate yourself to do important things in your life and that means taking time out to think about your progress throughout life and readjusting your goals accordingly.

You must push yourself or selfmotivate yourself to do important things in your life. Try to make good judgments along the way and do the right things and not the wrong things with your life.

If you are unhappy with your lifestyle then learn new useful skills and knowledge, make some new goals, associate with better humans, exclude or reduce the bad habits in your life, and push yourself with one or more small steps which will hopefully lead to a happier future. Motivate yourself to do something better with your life and chances are that it will be much happier in the long duration.

The enemy of proper selfmotivation is the deluge of external propaganda which brainwashes you with lies, deceptions, and bad advice into leading the wrong kind of life impulsively so you are not entirely to blame if your life seems purposeless, unsatisfying, and unrewarding.

If you want to seriously exclude lies, deceptions, and bad advice from your life then you can start by reading some of my evergreen truth blogs which are the antidote to untrue political, economic, social, and even scientific propaganda which has brainwashed you and most of the world.

The truth is not always pleasant to know and frequently selfdeceptions or comforting lies are more soothing to live with. It is lies which we have lived with during our entire life to date and it is subjective lies which we believe to be the truth. Changing our long held objectively untrue beliefs is very hard to do without overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Another reason that we don’t change our untrue beliefs is that there is frequently some truth in them and they are not total untruths. There is such a thing as being partially true and partially untrue and it is the partial truth which we frequently hold on for dear life. Most of us believe that something is either totally true or totally untrue without shades of grey or uncertainty.

You can thank our archaic language for this unfortunate irrational logic that everything must be either black or white, yes or no, true or untrue, antonym or synonym, and always or never. We are all guilty of falling into the logical trap that one or a few examples is evidence enough that what we believe is always true. The truth is that many more examples can show that what you believe is only true in certain circumstances or at certain times. Most humans don’t have an analytical mentality which thinks in terms of sometimes true and sometimes untrue.

Moral truth should not be relativistic most of the time but many of our opinions and beliefs about human nature and reality are relativistic and not true all the time or not true in all circumstances. Many of our beliefs are frequently, sometimes, or infrequently true and not true all the time or under all circumstances.

Most of us are committed to our physical survival as well as the survival of our strong beliefs even though the lifelong beliefs are sometimes very wrong and untrue either totally or partially.

Continue to live with your old desires, needs,  beliefs, and untruths OR reeducate yourself and start to realistically think about and make new adjustments to your desires, needs, and beliefs and view the world and your place in it slightly or radically differently. The choice is up to you!!!!!!

THE HIDDEN MEANING OR TRUTH IN MOTIVATION***

motivation

Motivation is frequently thought of as getting someone to do something or achieve a goal(s) and what is not realized is that doing something right frequently means not doing something which will prevent us from achieving the goal(s).

 

Proper motivation is sometimes accompanied by a warning that you should not do something along the way which will interfere with your goal(s) achievement.

 

Motivation does not have a true antonym such as blocking or preventing a behavior but the blocking or preventing is an integral part of the motivation process where only some things are prevented or blocked so that the motivation can proceed successfully to its conclusion or goal(s).

 

Proper motivation is not just emotionally stimulating a desire to win or succeed with promises of rewards, commands, encouragements, and even instilling some fear with threats of punishment if the goal(s) is not achieved. To properly motivate you must have taught how to achieve by warning of the possible mistakes which should not be made along the way.

 

“Cross the street by yourself but look both ways before you do” is the proper way to motivate offspring to cross the street but in safety with an appropriate warning.

 

“Get the job done in a week but remember to get enough sleep so that you can function efficiently every day” is an example of properly motivating an employee  who historically has frequently shown up tired for work.

 

The hidden truth is that to motivate properly you must also frequently have a good knowledge or understanding of the weaknesses of the one whom you want to motivate. Warning of the weaknesses or suggesting real ways to minimize those weaknesses is an important part of the motivational process or motivation!!!!!!

 

The other hidden truth not found in the definition of motivation is that selfmotivation is what you need the most in life to achieve success. If you mostly depend on others to motivate you then you may sometimes be waiting forever to get off your butt and do something truly useful with your life.

Motivation: n. stimulating and/or preventing a behavior(s) with a subset(s) which is frequently done with (the promise of a reward and/or punishment) and/or (a command and/or an encouragement(s)) and/or (a threat and/or a warning)

Selfmotivation: n. motivated by one’s desire(s) and/or need(s) and/or belief(s) and/or past experiences which activate and/or prevent one’s behavior(s)
