THE TRUTH ABOUT REHABILITATION***

bigstock_Road_To_Recovery_Green_Road_Si_6957686

Rehabilitation: n. restoring from bad (health and/or behavior(s)) to normal (health and/or behavior(s))

In the news the most popular form of rehabilitation is for drug addictions, especially of some celebrities. There is also criminal, work, education, and health rehabilitation which is an attempt at getting humans to live normal lives by educating them with the proper skills needed to lead independent healthy lives.

Some rehabilitation succeeds but many drug addicts and criminals can’t be rehabilitated no matter how hard you try and no matter how much attention you lavish on them. Relapses into addictions or crime are common and it is one reason why attempts at rehabilitation are sometimes fruitless and the only solution seems to be permanent incarceration.

The major reason for the relapses is that once the patient  or offender is placed back in the same environment with the same friends, the old stimuli trigger the same old behavior once again and the good effects of the rehabilitation are short lived.

Health rehabilitation after an accident or severe trauma is frequently successful although some geriatric illnesses are just incurable and the best that you can hope for is a masking of the symptoms but no real cure or successful rehabilitation.

THE TRUTH ABOUT UNPROVEN***

Screen-Shot-2014-03-17-at-3.11.19-PM-225x170

Unproven: n. not having convinced that a subset(s) exists and/or has existed and/or will exist beyond a reasonable doubt and/or not having used the scientific method

Many things in life are unproven but are highly probable which helps us to make sense out of human interactions and physical events and guides us in our decision making process.

There is basically judicial “proof” and scientific proof. Judicial proof is not very rigorous and the veracity of the proof to a large extent depends on the trustworthiness of the witnesses and the accuracy of the facts and professional testimony.

Interpreting the consequences of human past events and circumstantial facts is merely a statistical probabilistic communication(s) and proof in a court of law has an emotional component which is not very rational or logical and can lead to faulty convictions in more than just a few circumstances. Unless there is audio and video evidence which hasn’t been changed with computer software, proof beyond a reasonable doubt always has some guesswork involved.

Can you prove that a common morality is essential for a society to interact peacefully and have trusting relationships between its members? There is no scientific evidence which will ever prove the need for a commonly held moral code but it is an intuitive conclusion reached by personal experience and historical precedent.

Absolute scientific proof is possible but statistical norms are not really cause and effect absolute proofs and there are many real life exceptions to these statistical norms. Many things in life are unprovable in the absolute sense but statistical norms help us to make sense out of an otherwise confusing non absolute or frequently relative world.

Most of us are not really that concerned if something is unprovable as long as it is predictable to some extent. Good and bad habits, beliefs and opinions make humans predictable if you know them well. If you are a good judge of character then you can frequently predict their behavior to some extent and act accordingly.

Official proof beyond a reasonable doubt only exists in the courtroom and a scientific laboratory. There are informal proofs of the existence of something outside the lab and courtroom where you persuade someone that what you are saying or doing is in fact the truth and provable by demonstration or convincing discussion.

Unprovable supernatural phenomenon are simply accepted on faith and for the believer there is no need for proof because the indoctrination has been so successful that they are convinced supernatural phenomenon actually exist in all its varied forms.

Proving that there are ghosts, good and evil spirits, and paranormal activity is the realm of convincing charlatans who frequently make a good living off of their promoted mythologies. Some humans love to hear about miracles or the impossible or unprovable phenomenon and it is a human weakness which has plagued humanity since time immemorial.

Life after death is a perennial subject wished for by everyone and there are deceptive manipulators who promise it for their own personal benefit. Religions themselves are the greatest offenders of reason and logic but there is a saying that if you indoctrinate someone young enough they will be a true believer perhaps for a lifetime and believe almost any absurdity imaginable.

The sad part is that some of these believers want to protect their beliefs by sacrificing their lives and so conflict and wars are never ending in human history and on into the foreseeable future.

The world needs a commonly held secular moral code to keep it unified and operating peacefully and as long as traditional religions oppose such change then we are going to repeat history tragically and I don’t foresee any good consequences resulting from archaic mythological human beliefs passed on from generation to generation unrelentingly.

ECONOMIC FUNDAMENTALS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY!!!

Spend

There are fundamentally three classes of humans in society.

  1. The “unemployed” who have large financial reserves and invest their money in the hopes of making more money.
  2. The working class who have income from paying jobs.
  3. The unemployed or those without jobs who are also destitute and have no financial reserves.

The right to private property is essential.

The working class must have an incentive to learn useful skills and must be rewarded with adequate income when they do productive work. Private property is essential because communal property is not respected and poorly taken care of. Propertyless humans on total welfare have no incentive to work and can’t improve their skills without free reeducation opportunities.

There must be a standardized minimum safety net for the jobless and destitute with realistic possibilities for some to join or rejoin the working class.

Advancing technology, smart computer software, and robotization makes unemployment inevitable for what will be a majority of the citizens of a nation. The safety net must have a low enough standard of living so that the working class is not incentivized to land in the safety net and live there for a lifetime.

There must be an incentive to reeducate yourself out of the safety net no matter what your age. Internet interactive audio visual computer technological education must be part of the safety net so that all those willing to put in the time, effort, and achievement can have a hope of rejoining the working class status and be performing productive useful work and not make work which is an unacceptable social and economic blight.

It is the responsibility of the monied class and government to stabilize the currency or its value with minimal or no inflation so that the value of the currency does not lose value in the long duration.

Predatory financing with inflation steals the property accumulated by the working class and encourages profligate spending and no saving for emergencies and retirement. A healthy vital thrifty self-sustaining working class is essential for the long duration if the economy is to remain healthy, productive, and not always on the verge of bankruptcy.

A secular moral code must be taught to all impressionable young minds in elementary school so that the peaceful interaction of its citizens is possible and family units become successful relationships and raise productive offspring who are not socially dysfunctional for future generations.

The voting power of the jobless and destitute will have to be reduced by a percentage when their numbers reach about 30% of the population. If this is not done then the working class will become the slaves of those not working who will demand a luxurious standard of living which will bankrupt the system. Equal political rights for all citizens is the big lie which will no longer be sustainable in the 21st century technological economy.

Special collective rights for the jobless and destitute and realistic incentives to join or rejoin a productive working class at any age is vital for social justice in the 21st century.

Promoting healthy organic nutrient rich food and drink without taxation of the industry is vital to the long duration health of the nation or the medical bills for bad health will help to bankrupt the economy in the long duration.

THE TRUTH ABOUT REFORMS***

WelfareReformWordle

Reform: v. to make changes to a human(s) and/or to a (law(s) and/or rule(s)) to eliminate what is bad in a human(s) and/or in an organization(s) and thus trying to remove (a deviant behavior(s) and/or an abuse(s)) and/or an injustice(s)

To reform a human when it is possible you need rehabilitation and to reform an organization such as a government, court, or education system you need a change in laws and/or rules.

Almost every institution needs reform of some kind in this fast changing technological century and sometimes all that is needed is an efficient software program which accurately defines the operations and needs minimal human input to function.

World government, national government, the welfare system, and the educational system need radical reform to reflect the advancement in the technological 21st century and this is covered in detail in my evergreen truth books GLOBALISM, JUSTICE, CHANGES IN WELFARE LAWS, and EDUCATION REFORM.

AN OVERVIEW OF WHAT MARRIAGE IS AND ISN’T!!!

homepagePhotoFRLrev

Marriage should be sharing the good and the bad times but sometimes you will have to give in, sometimes you will get your way, sometimes you will have to be controlling, sometimes you will argue instead of compromise, and sometimes problems or irritations will remain unsolved for long periods of time. Being supported emotionally and financially in the good times is easy but being supported emotionally and financially in the bad times is evidence that the marriage can last.

You also have to share the workload and if one brings home most of the money then the other will have to take over most of the workload of keeping the house in order and spending more time with the offspring. Where both spouses work then housework and offspring rearing will have to be a shared responsibility. Marriage is responsible hard work and working out a just share of the responsibility will frequently determine to a large extent the success and happiness in the marriage. The extreme of I have to do everything and you do nothing is not a viable option.

Frequently one member is more domineering or is better at making decisions and solving problems than the other or you may have strengths in one area such as finance and weaknesses in another area such as offspring rearing. Letting a spouse dominate at something which they are good at should be encouraged.

Marriage is trying to balance things or coordinating effort to reach common  goals but it is also some independent behavior or pursuing your personal interests and getting support for those efforts from your spouse. Working together and sharing a business is rare and what makes interesting conversation possible is pursuing some independent goals, activities, or jobs and sharing those exploits with each other.

You are alike in many ways but also different in many ways and the dynamic interplay of these characteristics can make or break a relationship. If your communication skills are good, you are honest with each other and trust one another, and are good at sharing the load of responsibility then you will have a much more pleasant relationship than if you don’t honestly communicate and act irresponsibly.

A good marriage is a relatively safe intimate haven from a tumultuous sometimes crazy world but a stagnant marriage can also be quite boring so developing new or better interests, finding better jobs, and focusing on good long duration goals will help make the journey together more interesting and pleasantly challenging.

Bad times can really test a marriage and if you get through many of them successfully then your confidence that you will not be abandoned will be greater and you will know that you may have a lasting secure relationship and a truly best friend when times are tough.

When the offspring are leading independent lives and sex has ended then your major reasons for staying married may be challenged and unless you have maintained mutual respect and still enjoy being together and sharing your daily events with each other which have nothing to do with offspring, then a potential breakup is possible because you may find that you no longer have anything in common to enjoy.

Kindness, forgiveness, apologizing were appropriate, empathy, honesty, sincerity, dependability, competence, confidence, loyalty, optimism, caring, a common morality, mutual respect, mutual and independent goals, responsibility, good humor, and commitment are just some of the major characteristics which can make for a happy long duration marriage.

As long as you don’t lie to each other, are not adulterous, and are financially stable then you can have some personality drawbacks which won’t necessarily end a trusting relationship which is the bond which ultimately can keep you together despite your weaknesses and differences.

Few of us have loyal true friends and a spouse can be that one true loyal friend so you don’t have to live life as a loner without dependable human support or relationships. When you have something to bitch about then you will have a confidential trusting concerned listener to support you emotionally if not in other ways and you will not have to stew in your troubles alone. Confidentially confessing your troubles to someone is frequently therapeutic and lessens the misery.

Living alone with or without friends is an option which you should not feel bad about because you can spend most of your life pleasing yourself. Being married is more challenging and you can’t always please yourself but it can also be more rewarding in the long duration and your relationship skills with humans can improve if you learn from and master the marital relationship.

Many modern men are not good conversationalists, aren’t very caring, have been brainwashed with much promiscuous behavior, and have led rather irresponsible selfish indulgent lives as offspring,  and have bad jobs which don’t make them good potential husbands. If added to these basic facts a male comes from a dysfunctional family then the odds that a marriage will end in divorce are rather high and marriage should usually not be attempted.

Modern life no longer stresses important family values so your best bet is a husband who comes from a family which still values family values and a man who still gets along well with his family members. There are no guarantees in life that a good responsible childhood will mean a good responsible spouse but a messed up, carefree, or abused childhood and bad job are primary causes of messed up marriages and divorce.

Historically a husband who is a good provider, is moral, and has integrity was a great catch. Modern society’s values have changed and divorce has skyrocketed because the same basic historical values still apply to happy long duration modern marriages. Many modern women are good providers but unfortunately most men have not been taught to adjust to the new realities and few without the help of a nanny can do most of the young child rearing responsibilities well by themselves. Two working spouses with meager incomes and offspring is a recipe for disaster in the modern world.

In the modern world you can live together on meager incomes but whatever you do don’t get married, especially if that means offspring in your lives. Living together is an option while you are struggling to survive financially but once financial security is reached and you still don’t marry then that probably means that one significant other is hoping for a better partner to come along.

Marriage is a duty or responsibility to spouse and offspring and if you are not very responsible with your own life then don’t marry and ruin someone else’s life!

THE TRUTH ABOUT RECYCLING***

thCADCRF0W

Recycle: v. to make a used subset(s) into a different subset(s) which can be used again

Nature recycles everything and it is only humans who create materials which aren’t properly recycled and cause pollution in the environment. We should create as much biodegradable waste as possible and limit industrial pollutants which are toxic to the environment to a minimum.

Glass, paper, metals, and plastic is recyclable but antifreeze, synthetic oils, radioactive waste, medical waste, and synthetic drugs pose a real recycling problem which causes much pollution which is non biodegradable.

Sustainability is a word used which signifies the use and reuse of materials which are not harmful to the environment and we should pursue this goal fervently to prevent future generations from paying for our irresponsible behavior with bad health and a toxic environment. The goal should be to recycle almost everything with minimal or no pollution at all.
