THE TRUTH ABOUT WHISTLEBLOWING***

Whistleblower

 

Whistleblower: n. a human who makes public disclosure of corruption and/or wrongdoing

There is corruption in politics, medicine, banking, business, and media and only morally outraged insiders are truly capable of doing something about it. Unfortunately most whistleblowers get fired from their jobs, get blacklisted, have their reputations ruined, and many wind up financially handicapped for the rest of their lives.

Whistleblowing on the powerful is a very risky business and an independent organization(s) is necessary which protects whistleblowers from financial ruin and has the means to promote itself economically free of influence from the rich and powerful. Whistleblowers should be assured of a lifetime income if their reputation is ruined and financial support is necessary during ongoing court adjudications.

A financially independent organization(s) could be a tax free foundation(s) with lawyers who would be in a position to sue the corrupt offenders for their wrongdoing. The funding could come from private citizens, lawyers, rich philanthropists, successful suits, and organizations interested in promoting ethical behavior in society.

All the donations would be public knowledge and there would be a media arm which would assure that the suits became public knowledge and could potentially temporarily ruin the reputation of the corrupt offending organizations.

Legally the whistleblowing evidence would be stolen property so a national law would have to be passed making such evidence acceptable in a court of law nationally and maybe even internationally. This is the biggest hurdle to overcome since the issue of privacy comes up and you are really invading the privacy of powerful important organizations.

Corruption or corrupt practices should be against the law or fraudulent so the court system is ultimately the only realistic means of combating this fraud.

Medical fraud is the most serious because it affects the health of millions of humans. Not only are whistleblowers necessary to weed out some of the corruption but open source information is vital on all clinical trials, especially the ones which don’t show any positive results for the drugs being tested. Medical research should not be cloaked in secrecy but all bad and good results should become public knowledge. A grace period of perhaps a year before public publication of bad and good results should be mandatory.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PRACTICE***

Practice: v. to repeat a behavior(s) and/or skill(s) and/or knowledge and/or experience to get competency and/or expertise

You have probably heard the phrase that “practice makes perfect” and it is frequently true that with enough repetition you can learn most skills and knowledge necessary for existence. The reality is that “practice frequently makes better” but not perfect since consistent perfection is not possible by any human but only robots.

What most don’t realize is that because of repetition or practice we also have developed good and bad habits which are not easy to change because they have become largely impulsive behaviors or the things which we frequently do and don’t do.

Habits are the result of what we have practiced in the past and if you don’t like some of your habits then you can blame the past. Then make a conscious decision to do something about it or you will have to blame yourself for inaction or not trying to improve upon the past.

Some are born with exceptional physical and/or mental ability and don’t need to practice that much to learn a new skill or knowledge. It is frustrating for many average humans to have to compete with humans that have inborn talent and it seems that no matter how much we repeat or practice something we are never really good enough to become outstanding performers in a consistent way. 

It is a smart human who realizes that there is a limit to how much you can practice trying to achieve the impossible. If you have to practice four times as much as the average human to reach a goal(s) then it is time to ask yourself-Is it worth the extra time that I am putting in to achieve something which takes others almost no time at all?

Most of us are born with some natural ability in something and it is a smart human who works on improving their strengths and doesn’t work so hard on trying to improve their weaknesses. Practice and improve what you are good at and don’t practice something which you are not good at that much.

Two valuable questions to ask are-What should I practice? and Why should I practice? If you are practicing without a goal(s) in mind then your should definitely reassess the situation.

THE TRUTH ABOUT BOASTING***

boasting in weakness

Boast: v. to communicate excessive selfimportance and/or pride

Using superlatives to describe your accomplishments may sometimes seem like boasting but some humans actually do a great or superb job once in a while. What really separates the boaster from a truthful comment is the tone of voice which selfpraise is made and how frequently it is done. If you repeat selfpraise much then it can also be thought of as a sign of boasting.

“I manage 50 humans” may merely be a fact of life and not a boast unless the tone of voice is a boastful manner or you repeat the fact about three or more times in a short duration. “I always win” and “I am never wrong” may seem like a boast or a lie or both. Humility is frequently preferred by humans to boasting but a little boasting can also sometimes be considered to be a sign of selfconfidence so it is not always totally bad.

Evergreen truth blog may seem like boasting to some of you but I prefer to view it as a sign of somewhat excessive selfconfidence.
