THE TRUTH ABOUT COMPEL+

compel-quotes-6

Compel: v. to get one to do an action(s) by obliging and/or coercion

Compelling is getting someone to do something by coercion and/or obliging. A human may be compelled to do something out of a sense of duty or moral obligation or compelled to obey the law because of possible coercive action if the law is not obeyed. A compelling reason to do something is often an acknowledgement that not doing so will be met by coercive action or social ostracism.

THE TRUTH ABOUT VOLITION+

images (1)

Volition: n. willing and making a conscious choice(s) and/or decision(s) without prior and/or simultaneous external coercion and/or threat

 

When we impulsively react to a situation we are impulsively choosing or making a spontaneous decision. That is not what volition is. When we spend a transient amount of time before making a choice and/or decision and then consciously make a decision and/or choice then we are being volitional.

 

It is a little more complicated than that because if we are coerced and/or threatened before and/or during the decision making process then it is someone else trying to impose their volition on you.

 

Free will is really a desire to reach a goal(s) not affected by coercion and/or threat and not the decision making process itself which volition includes. So with volition there is a will and the actual process of making a conscious choice and/or decision.

THE TRUTH ABOUT RIGHT TO WORK+

20312699_BG5

Here is a quote from nrtw.org:

“What effect does a Right to Work law have on a state’s standard of living?

The National Right to Work Committee has called attention to the fact that Right to Work states enjoy a higher standard of living than do non-Right to Work states. Families in Right to Work states, on average, have greater after-tax income and purchasing power than do those families living in non-Right to Work states, independent studies reveal. What’s more, Right to Work states have greater economic vitality, official Department of Labor statistics show, with faster growth in manufacturing and nonagricultural jobs, lower unemployment rates and fewer work stoppages.”

http://www.nrtw.org/b/rtw_faq.htm

In general most unions are terribly inefficient, fight against innovation, especially if it reduces the number of workers needed, and make it very hard to fire incompetent or marginally competent workers. With worldwide competition were innovation is a must and an efficient workforce is necessary, unions are a corrupt great drawback and waste much taxpayer’s money and make it hard to compete internationally.

Unions should have a right to exist in non monopoly businesses but not in business monopolies or government monopolies where they can extort exorbitant wages without customer or taxpayer approval which often threatens to bankrupt municipal and state governments in the long duration.

The special coercive privileges of union bosses is unjust corruption and their lobbying efforts in government with a great war chest creates special interest legislation which ensures their corrupt dominance in the politics and the economics of the nation.

http://www.nrtw.org/en/d/big_labor_special_privileges.htm

It may seem logical to some that big business influence should be balanced by big unions. The reality is that union members are a privileged class who enjoy high wages at the expense of everyone else in society because there are fewer jobs in innovative new businesses, higher taxes, and more unemployment for the rest of the population.

THE TRUTH ABOUT COERCION***

can-stock-photo_csp11943103

Coercion: n. using force and/or the threat of force to get a desired (behavior(s) and/or thinking(s)) and/or belief(s) in an animal(s)

Have you ever used physical force on someone or threatened them with physical force? Then you have used coercion. Sometimes offspring are coerced to behave by threatening them with spanking and abusive spouses frequently use coercion to get what they want in a marriage. Some pets are also coerced and physically hit out of shear abuse or just a desire to get them to behave. Civilized humans should not be using coercion on each other but unfortunately it is still a fact of life in many cases in this world.

A stickup using a gun as a threat is the most basic kind of coercion without actual physical contact being necessary in most cases. Unfortunately police officers also sometimes have to use coercion to apprehend and arrest criminals or lawbreakers.

Slavery was made possible because of coercion by the slave owners and laws permitting it. Religious coercion is still being practiced by some fanatical and not so fanatical Muslims. Tyrants use political coercion to rule.

Scapehum: n. a human and/or group of humans that is coerced into accepting blame for another’s (immorality and/or misbehavior) and/or mistakes

I chose to make a new word for scapegoat and a new accurate definition because it is not a goat but rather a human who is coerced into accepting blame for something.

The less coercion there is in society the more just it is and humans can interact morally and relatively peacefully with one another. Unfortunately morality is not indoctrinated into modern humans and the result is much irresponsible behavior which the general public tends to abhor and begins to look for government for a solution.

 

Irresponsible immoral behavior results in many unnecessary absolute unjust laws which are coercive in nature since they are enforced with the use of force. Every unjust absolute law is really a coercive threat of the use of force if it is not obeyed. The net effect of so many unjust absolute laws is that many minorities are handicapped by having to live under the laws and it seems that there is justice for the majority but in fact many minorities are oppressed.

In the real world where there are so many exceptions to an absolute rule the more absolute rules there are the more unjust the government becomes.

 

So many unjust rules or laws means that new businesses and new young humans are at a distinct disadvantage competitively speaking and the established businesses and older individuals almost have a monopoly power over who can compete against them in society.

 

Government can’t legislate morality by passing laws to try and control human behavior in minute detail so a secular morality must be taught in public schools so that its citizens can interact relatively peacefully with one another in an atmosphere of more general trust. That secular morality should be-except in emergency 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!!!!!!

With a secular public morality the amount of necessary government coercion can be minimal and its citizens can live in relatively trusting relationships with one another and not constantly have to live in fear of being victimized by violence and/or a ripoff by another immoral citizen.
