A MODERN SECULAR MORALITY: THE ANSWER TO MOST ETHICAL PROBLEMS!!!

The modern secular morality or code is- in nonemergency 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.

Nature is very efficient, but you may wonder why efficiency is stated as a moral imperative and so here are a few examples where it should be applied as a moral or ethical principle.

If you want a good service from anyone then you expect them to be honest with you and you want the service to be done efficiently or at minimum cost in terms of money and time.

If it is a car mechanic then you don’t want him to lie to you but you also want him to be efficient or repair the car as soon as possible, at minimum cost, and competently with good value in the short and long duration.

There is short duration efficiency and long duration efficiency which includes concepts such as quality, durability, and reliability. The question to ask is do you want long duration efficiency or short duration efficiency or medium range efficiency at a reasonable cost? In effect the cheapest price or cost may not be the best price or cost for the long or medium duration.

If it is a medical doctor then you want him to cure you if possible and minimize any pain if there is no cure. You want him to be honest with you but you also want him to do so efficiently by doing a competent job in the least amount of time and at minimum cost to you. If the doctor is trying to hook you on addictive pills with bad side effects just to get you as a permanent customer then he is not doing his job efficiently from your point of view.

If you are a defendant then a lawyer should defend you if you are not guilty and try to minimize the punishment for you if you are guilty. He should not lie to you and he should do so efficiently in the shortest amount of time possible and at minimum cost to you if he is a competent lawyer.

In your personal life if you talk too much, watch too much entertainment, listen to too much music, eat too much, drink too much, argue too much, gamble too much, shop too much, etc. then you are not being very efficient and you probably have severe moral efficiency flaws in your character or personality. You are wasting your valuable time, energy, and money by being inefficient and sometimes grossly so.

You might perhaps be tempted to say that stealing is more efficient than earning the money to buy it but that is why there are six secular moral code principles and not just one. Don’t steal is another ethical or moral principle which overrides the efficiency principle so that criminality is not rewarded.

Yes, there are also efficient liars and murderers and they tend to get away with lying and murdering more often than other incompetent liars and murderers. But once again that is why the moral code has don’t lie and don’t murder as a sign of morality or good behavior and these override the efficiency principle which is nature’s golden rule since murdering predators are vital in the overall balance of nature.

Efficiency in it’s purest sense is amoral since it is a principle applicable to good and bad goals and/or behaviors and hopefully collective humanity will continue to apply efficiency to the good rather than the bad goals and/or behaviors.

Efficient humans and organizations such as businesses survive more often than the inefficient ones so efficiency in the pursuit of good is a virtue or a good value to have.

How can you justify turning a basically amoral principle into a moral one? Because it is time to include scientific knowledge about efficiency so fundamental to nature as a major consideration in all our behaviors. If we continue to ignore efficiency in moral or ethical questions then we do so at our peril in the long duration and nature will severely punish human civilization for being grossly inefficient.

There are inefficient humans, governments, educational systems, businesses, organizations, professions, etc. and very few of them are respected and admired by many humans which is as it should be. It is time to discipline all these entities and make them function more efficiently at a great cost savings to all contributors and recipients.

LONG RANGE PREDICTIONS OF HURRICANES ARE NOT VERY ACCURATE!!!

Based on the long range predictions for hurricane Irma I have concluded that they are not very good for the American model nor the “superior” European model.

One long range prediction was that Irma would travel up the east coast of Florida along I-95, the next prediction was that the eye of the hurricane would hit Miami. Next the European model predicted that Irma would vertically hit central Florida. What finally happened was that the eye hit Key West, hit Naples, and worked its way up western Florida.

The computer model predictions were also bad when the trajectory of the hurricane hit land masses. The category 4, 3, 2, and 1 predictions were inaccurate with a bias towards high category 4 long range forecasts. When the Cuban coast was hit the hurricane dropped from category 4 to 3 and later went back up to 4. The long range prediction of a category 4 all the way to Tampa was also inaccurate as it headed up western Florida and quickly dropped to a category 3 then 2 then 1.

I am thankful that all that Daytona Beach had to handle was tropical storm conditions since the devastation of Irma across Florida was very large as a whole.

Conclusion: Long range hurricane predictions are inaccurate and so are category long range predictions inaccurate, especially over big land masses.

VETERINARIANS HAVE FINALLY CONCLUDED THAT DRY DOG AND CAT FOOD IS UNHEALTHY!!!

Historically dogs and cats were fed from moist table scraps and not overly processed pet food without the natural water content of foods and without the natural balance of nutrients in organic food.

Finally many smart veterinarians have reached the same conclusion that pets should be fed real moist preferably organic food. What will the big pet food companies do now? Probably nothing, and will continue to produce the high profit unhealthy junk food for dogs and cats and maybe will come up with phony research trying to prove there is nothing wrong with dry overly processed pet food.

In the short duration pets and humans can get away with eating and drinking substandard food and drink but in the long duration health is radically affected and future generations suffer from the eating and drinking negligence of the present generation with undesirable health problems of their own.

IS THIS AN EXAMPLE OF AMAZON CENSORSHIP???

I tried to access and possibly buy from Amazon

Nazis, Commies, And Terrorists: How western society has become what it fought, and how to fix this problem

Jan 1, 2015

and found out that it is not currently available anymore. Tarl Warwick is a self proclaimed unique Libertarian type who does not publish hate speech nor any really radical views attempting the overthrow of governments through violent means so he is no terrorist by any stretch of the imagination.
What peaked my interest in this book was the statement “and how to fix this problem”. I read all political viewpoints and formulate my own opinion based on what I find most truthful about the ideas advocated by conservative and liberal spokesmen. Tarl Warwick is loosely somewhat a Libertarian conservative and not a far right Nazi but you really can’t pigeon hole or stereotype him into a political box. He speaks very lucidly on many political issues and what he offers is mildly intellectually stimulating.
As a youth I also was very interested in Libertarian ideas and the older I got I also got a little wiser I realized that pure Libertarianism is unworkable and formulated my own political philosophy called CapSocialism. Nevertheless I sense that Amazon may be trying to politically censor “politically incorrect thinking” or more accurately minority political opinion.
To date I have not investigated Tarl’s YouTube video presence enough to form any permanent conclusions about him but I offer you three examples which I enjoyed to some extent, perhaps because of the novelty of it. One is a conversation between Tarl and Stephan Molyneux on Globalism.
Here’s Tarl’s views on the far left and far right.
One caveat, I strongly don’t support Tarl’s view on drugs but many of his other views are a good antidote to a young human indoctrinated by the establishment left. If you are a big government liberal then you can get some balance in your views by listening to Tarl and rethinking through your ideological views or beliefs.
And here is a video of Tarl’s views on traditionalism.

CENSORSHIP IN THE MODERN WORLD!!!

Censorship by an immoral government is the worst kind of censorship because it tries to maintain a good or accepted reputation when it doesn’t deserve that reputation and does so with coercive oppression.

The next form of mass covert censorship is that done by monopoly prone organizations such as Amazon, Facebook, Apple, and Google who desperately would want a reputation of integrity and trustworthiness so they can be respected by a vast majority of its customers. That means that they must try to censor all immoral, incompetent, and criminal elements.

The reality is that big money is increasingly influencing who and what gets promoted and who and what gets censored on the web so many moral organizations and individuals with little money but quality information and/or goods and/or services and/or property get censored on the web along with criminals and politically incorrect viewpoints.  You are constantly prominently barraged by ads that you don’t want or don’t need from deep pocket organizations with strong fiduciary relationships with the Big Four mentioned above with Bing a possible 5th contender.

In the foreseeable future cellphones will probably also evolve to much less complex dumb phones and not smart phones which can do almost anything. The complexity of thousands of apps will probably be reduced to simple choices such as type of food, clothing, car, author, etc. and price and all delivered door to door by a handful of companies. Less choice is also a form of censorship and the dream of monopoly prone companies so be on guard against this and promote quality diversity as much as possible.

A wild west kind of internet is unworkable and moral or just behavioral censorship has become a vital necessity. But can you completely trust the morals of companies with monopoly power over you or completely trust the morals of the government with a tendency to favor monied special interests?

Ultimately common morality must be impulsive to be effective so the solution lies in indoctrinating the younger generation with a workable universal worldwide secular moral code which can be applied by almost everyone without religious beliefs. A moral citizenry will demand a moral leadership and it will be a revolution from the bottom up if those in power desire it to be so top down also. Search my blog or publications if you are interested and want some details about this universal worldwide secular moral code.

A moral code that is just efficiently rules over impulsive human nature and minimizes the need for surveillance cameras in every nook and cranny of society.
