MASS MEDIA IS DEAD AND SO ARE SHARED CULTURAL TRADITIONS IN THE UNITED STATES!!!

The internet and technology opened the door to worldwide communications and made information from almost unlimited sources to become available. The long duration result was an atomized existence for most humans pursuing their own interests, wanting instant gratification, and not being brainwashed by a dominant media with just one basic cultural agenda.

More articles and books are published on a yearly basis than ever before but fewer and fewer humans are spending their time reading them. The traditional half hour or hour programs on radio and TV are fast losing their appeal as humans more and more want their information in short sound and video bytes and are quick to change channels, shows, or videos if they can’t maintain their interest.

The net result is a loss in cultural traditions and shared opinions on many things. Traditional moral values are being assaulted and immorality is on the rise. Almost nothing is sacred anymore and deviant lifestyles run rampant destroying family life and social cohesion. Trust in the leadership is at an all time low and relatively few leaders remain with impeccable reputations.

A descent into social chaos is occurring and almost no one has a solution on how to prevent the destructive forces and emerge with an effective antidote or solutions to the increasing problems of addictions to bad behavior and drugs.

The fundamental problem is a moral corruption which the left leaning academia, celebrities, media, and even deep state are trying to cure with a left wing ideology and censorship of opposing views which exacerbates the problem and doesn’t really cure the dysfunctional morality and lifestyles. Left wing propaganda not guided by reason, morality, and just legal traditions will not work in the long run and has to be enforced by coercive means and oppressive censorship.

Is there room for optimistic views about the future? Yes, smart robots and smart interactive audio visual software will eventually teach young offspring a commonly believed secular moral code and by the age of about 13 most will know what is impulsively right or wrong to do. A useful education which includes math and basic scientific principles will be taught to everyone who puts in the time and effort to learn to the best of their ability and the rest will be destined to live on welfare with free useful education available to all who want to rejoin the workforce and become contributing members of society. The amount of welfare given will be directly proportional to the amount of useful education which they have learned even if they remain unemployed.

We can have a moral nation or world where ability and effort will be rewarded and if you chose not to participate in usefully educating yourself further for free then you will exist for the rest of your life on a safety net of minimal welfare support, and probably without a family.

What is this secular moral code? In non 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.

Call this social proposal a dystopian or utopian world but it is the most just social order imaginable for all practical purposes in a future world ruled by a technological elite with most of the population effectively unemployed for a lifetime.

THE INTERNET WAS AND STILL IS AN ASSAULT ON SOCIAL COHESION OR CULTURE!!!

Concept Connections Blue Background

Concept Connections Blue Background

Not so obvious to some, the internet was creating and is still creating cultural chaos with many prominent writers having lost their jobs and losing a national audience with it. Free information is very alluring but the reality is that the producers of the information have to be paid somehow and quality information is costly.

The quality of the culture has suffered and we are being brainwashed to buy crap and read crappy information more than ever. Crappy information may entertain many but it helps almost no one to realistically lead a better quality life.

Today more and more are trapped in their social networks all pursuing their mundane interests and having less and less political and social values in common with most of the citizens of a country or even world.

The real challenge is to create a new world culture which spans borders and creates a necessary worldwide secular morality to replace the old and decaying religious ones. I am perhaps one of the few who sense an urgency to restore a common human morality if we are not to descend into political chaos followed by tyranny.

Personal tradition is overwhelming national and religious tradition.  Search engines like Google are struggling to regain some sense of order out of the chaos that it helped to create. Google’s latest emphasis is on professional and reputable publications rather than promoting publications based on keywords and followings which often have no connection to quality of input but are quantitative standards which can and often do promote mediocrity and sensationalism.

China was well aware of the threat posed to its leadership by the internet and continues to the present day to censor what it deems political or social dissent.

Censorship of the internet is inevitable and welcome to some extent even though it may take many years to make some areas of it a quality experience for all who choose to partake and it will probably be at some additional cost to the customer or consumer.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CULTURE

6a0128763842f6970c014e8ad08304970d

Culture: n. the normative knowledge and/or experience and/or beliefs and/or attitudes and/or morals of a group of humans

What is the difference between cultures? They basically eat different food, some dress radically different, some are industrialized and some are largely still agrarian, some have different beliefs or moral codes, have different customs, and they speak different languages or with a different dialect.

The desires, needs, and wants of the humans are basically the same. They want water, food, clothing, shelter, transportation, some want offspring, many want a job or work, and many want an opportunity to have a better life.

The standard of living in different cultures is varied with some leading a relatively leisurely life and others struggling to survive at bare subsistence levels with even starvation and death being a daily preoccupation.

World unity is handicapped primarily because of cultural bias and the differing political systems which rule over them.

Big money is trying to unify and rule the world but unfortunately there needs to be a unified secular morality and uniform rules for behavior which are reflected in similar constitutions.

Nations are now competing against one another as are cultures and the only way to truly unify them is with a common language and a political unity of poor nations with rich ones.

“Divide and conquer” should be replaced with a battle cry of “unite politically and conquer” so that the most prosperous economies can absorb the least prosperous ones and unify the world at a faster clip than it is happening already.

Biodiversity and human survival on the face of this precious planet is at stake and the last thing we need is competing divided nations devastating their natural resources to the max trying to survive and raise living standards in the global economy with an increasing national human population.

My evergreen truth book GLOBALISM shows how the world can be unified much sooner into one conscientious world community with the conservation of biodiversity being of primary importance for the health and wellbeing of future generations.

11 HINTS YOU ARE PROBABLY NOT READY FOR A SERIOUS DATING RELATIONSHIP

1297383050546_ORIGINAL

You flirt with everything that breathes is a sure indication that you are not ready for a faithful and exclusive relationship with the opposite sex.

You treat your dates like they are a second option in your life and not a first priority thus making your date feel like a second fiddle.

You can’t keep a conversation going but stop speaking with nothing to say for long periods of time. This will create the impression that you are not skilled in human relationships.

You don’t keep your attention on your date but check emails and text and let your attention wander in other ways without focusing on your date as priority number one.

You constantly bring up your ex girlfriend or ex boyfriend or ex spouse in the conversation with your date. This means you are stuck in the past relationship wise and no serious date wants to share your past relationship failures.

You are a male and reveal that you are not interested in a long duration relationship so your date will be repulsed.

You don’t spend enough time with your date but only date once or twice a month will create the impression that you are not interested in a serious relationship.

You are stuck in the past with past memories and no future plans. This will also create the impression that you don’t know what to do with your future and no one will want to join your life which is stagnating.

You are depressed and only talk about bad things in your life and have a pessimistic view of the world. No one will want to share your gloomy life.

You are unemployed and treat life as a joke with no household skills like cooking or cleaning. This will create the impression that you have a mooching personality which no one wants.

You have a history of cheating on dates so no date will trust you and without trust a serious relationship is not possible in the real world.

ANIMAL SOUNDS COMMUNICATE MEANINGFULLY, ESPECIALLY WITH THE SAME SPECIES!!!!!

dolphinbig_1_

Animal sounds are not just noise but meaningful communications which we all intuitively know if we have sociable cats and/or dogs which seem to be communicating with us some of the time.

We can learn from animals which communicate purposefully and do not pursue trivial and random communications which can really be considered noise without valuable content.

If you want to be more efficient in your communications with humans try to be short and brief and to the point and don’t just randomly talk about what just impulsively pops into your head.

Ask whether what you are about to say will inform the other human with something which they can use in their life such as good advice backed up with personal experiences or teaching them new important facts which they can use in their lives.

Try to avoid gossip and going on and on about what existed in your life in the past and minute details about your daily life.

Don’t bore people and frighten away potential new friends by trying to hang out with them conversationally.

Above all be selective in the humans you talk to the most in a smart way and usually don’t say anything at all or cut the conversation short if what you are about to say won’t help that other person in living their daily lives.

Silence is frequently golden in the wild and you should learn to be more silent in your life.

Especially think about what you are about to say in silence for a few seconds before you actually say something which should be usually important.

If you love to talk record your conversations on a mini audio recorder and then play them back when you have some time and start analyzing the conversations by asking.

Was what I said trivial and uninformative?

If the answer is yes then don’t say the same thing in the future.

Did it help the other human in some way?

If you don’t think you helped then don’t say it in future conversations.

Could I have said what I said in fewer words and still get the message across?

Analyze and eliminate those words and phrases or topics which don’t get any valuable message across in future conversations and become a more efficient more interesting talker.

Many of us just have a bad blabbing habit which all of us should be working to decrease in our lives because it is effectively just trivial noise no one wants to hear or should hear.

THE TRUTH ABOUT HAPPINESS!!!!!!

Happy people

Happiness is sensing pleasure.

If you sense pleasure you are happy though the intensity of the pleasure of varies depending on what you are doing.

It may seem that happiness is closely tied to how much money you make.

It has been shown that above the poverty line people with more money are not usually happier than almost everyone else above the poverty line.

What is certain is that not having money decreases our happiness and lessens our ability to function independently in society and this causes an increase in unpleasant stress.

It is true that there is a large difference in what we think will give us happiness and actually feeling happy when we get it.

Whatever you think will make you happy gives momentary pleasure usually lasting not more than a few seconds a few days or a time between the two and then we return to our average daily habits of being happy OR UNHAPPY AGAIN.

The reason that it is hard to determine or judge how happy people are in life is because thinking about whether one is happy or not and verbalizing it is frequently much different than the factual real amount of happiness in a person’s life.

Extreme or very intense happiness or ecstasy WHICH IS VERY SHORT TERM HAPPINESS is usually transient in average people and is frequently associated with orgasm and drug highs.

There is also the happiness of creative work which is experienced by skilled creative professionals who are in a state of mostly impulsive creativity that is almost like an outer body experience.

Skilled composers of music and artists and impromptu speakers and inventors are examples of people who find largely impulsive happiness in their creative effort.

It also seems to be a fact that the more choices which you have in life the more stressful it becomes and your happiness in choosing a course of action decreases.

It also seems that people purchasing or getting an object produces more happiness than being in a position of being able to exchange that object for a different one if not satisfied with the original choice.

It is also a fact that remembering an intense moment of happiness will stay with you longer in memory than a series of low intensity happy moments.

Based on all this objective knowledge about happiness it is an absurdity to think that people should have an absolute right to the pursuit of happiness and that this absurd notion should be codified in a written constitution.

Pursuing the greatest pleasure or happiness would be the hedonistic pursuit of sexual orgasm and an unrestricted use of legal and illegal mind altering drugs.

The unalienable right to the pursuit of happiness should be changed to more realistic goals as those outlined in my book NEW CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.

Over 50 percent of those leading happy lives can attribute it to being genetically born to be happier than others.

You inherited the happy genes from your parents and you also learned many happy tricks from their happy lifestyles and the happy lifestyles of role models.

You can help to exclude sources of unhappiness but you can’t easily create happiness in people by only talking to them and making suggestions.

If you are born unhealthy with a poor memory and unhappy parents and unattractive features such as being overly fat your battle to be happy and remain happy will be more difficult.

It is much easier to create happiness in people by asking them to imitate happy role models and it must be highly volitional on their part.

It should be obvious that teaching young children to be happier is much easier than teaching grown adults doing bad unhappy habits which don’t result in much happiness.

Matt Killingsworth has done a study on happiness and found that if you want to be happy you should stay in the moment.

This basically means that if you are pursuing a purposeful activity you are happier than if you doing nothing or nothing of importance.

He has uncovered that no matter what you are doing your mind wanders and that it wanders about 30% of the time no matter what you are doing.

Mind wandering is a cause of unhappiness but unhappiness is not the cause of mind wandering.

When you are unhappy your mind may be wondering but wondering does not cause unhappiness.

There is no paradox in thinking about happiness if you are not brainwashed by the mythological concepts of happiness in literature.

The old concepts about happiness are illogical constructs which should die a fast death.

Biological reality has no paradoxes!

Dreaming or thinking about making a lot of money and/or having a great job and/or being very successful is not a source of happiness.

It is working purposefully at your job and/or minimally doing something pleasant and/or HAPPY TIME WITH FAMILY AND VERY CLOSE FRIENDS that causes moments of happiness and correspondingly moments of unhappiness.

The truth shall set you free of all historical paradoxes!!!

If you have landed the job of your dreams or purchased the luxury car of your dreams or married the most perfect spouse in the world or made a rare killing in the stock market and find that you are not happy anymore after the initial excitement.

Start thinking about adjusting your life living on a daily basis and improving your relationship with your family and CLOSE friends which can create more lasting happiness on a daily basis.

Small moments of happiness in your daily life are more important than large successes in your daily or professional life!!!

Rearrange your life so that each of your day is giving you more little pleasures and stay away from dreaming about the highly improbable happiness that you will feel if your life becomes and extraordinary success at some future point in your life!!!

THE REAL SECRET TO HAPPINESS IS CLOSE AND SHARING AND LONG TERM RELATIONSHIPS WITH SPOUSE AND CHILDREN AND VERY CLOSE FRIENDS!!!

I ILLUSTRATE IT WITH A SONG BY ELVIS: LOVE ME TENDER!!!

AND ONCE A CLOSE AND SHARING AND LONG TERM RELATIONSHIP WITH SPOUSE OR CHILDREN OR A VERY CLOSE FRIEND ENDS YOU HAVE GREAT UNHAPPINESS IN YOUR LIFE.

I ILLUSTRATE IT WITH A SONG BY B.B. KING: THE THRILL IS GONE!!!

HOW TO EXCLUDE MOST PREJUDICE AND BIAS IN THE WORLD AND PSYCHOLOGICAL TIPS FOR EFFICIENT HUMAN INTERACTIONS

lgPH0452

MYTH: Bias and prejudice can’t be decreased in this world.

TRUTH: Bias and prejudice can be decreased in this world with the use of a new language which is more logical and as free of emotional expression as possible and not biased with the black or white and LOVE OR HATE and yes or no and yin or yang and antonym or synonym and etc. but a more probabilistic view of the world as proposed in my book SCIENTIFIC THESAURUS.

The book uses standard English words with which I have been communicating in my blogs and there is only a rare new word which is used to make the communication more logical. Instead of using over a million words to communicate SCIENTIFIC THESAURUS uses only about 3000 basic words to communicate which would be easier to teach and remember and most elementary school students would have a complete logical vocabulary to use in their lives. The words include a knowledge of what is most important in the liberal arts and politics and society and economics but omits many scientific words other than the basics.

The new language only uses verbs and nouns and adjectives and adverbs to communicate and this eliminates the need for prepositions and conjunctions and metaphors and similes and slang and synonyms and confusing phrases with little factual content and greatly simplifies English grammar and makes it very simple to learn.

This language will exclude most bias and prejudice and emotionally charged words which are a handicap to logical reasoned human interactions.

How do you attract good potential new dates or friends or acquaintances?

Cloose: adj. existing at a relatively short distance in space and/or time and/or number and/or degree and/or quantity

People are attracted to others who have similar values and interests and tastes and beliefs and health and happiness and education and power.

If you are interested in cloose peer relationships and friendships which correspond to as many of your own values and interests and tastes and beliefs and health and happiness and education and power then look for similar characteristics with new potential acquaintances as possible.

The more that you have in common with a new potential mate or friend or acquaintance then the greater is the probability that they can become cloose to you in the future.

Probe a human’s likes and dislikes and compare them to your own.

You will better judge whether a relationship is worth the investment in time and energy and money if you ask enough probing questions and try to find similar characteristics and behaviors in a potential new date or friend or acquaintance.

The most important characteristics to look for are a common morality and a relatively similar educational level which means relative moral and mental equality.

First impressions of your appearance and behaviors on someone is very important because first impressions last in memory and you will have an uphill battle at getting trust from someone if you start off wrong with someone who will have stereotyped you or made instant bad generalities or stereotypes about you which may not be deserved.

Start a new relationship very friendly and honestly thus creating an initial good bond and try to hide your bad characteristics as much as possible since they will surface sooner or later and may not be as catastrophic later in a relationship.

It is OK to reveal some of the bad events in your life if they are ones which you have solved along the way.

If you have had bad experiences in your life which you solved this will be educational for the new human in the relationship and they will feel that you can probably also confidently solve problems in the future.

Don’t try to be too perfect because perfection is frightening and humans will not empathize with you as much if they see no flaws.

If you reveal some of your minor bad secrets your bonding will increase because the human will like your honesty and feel clooser to you and he or she will probably also reveal some of their small bad secrets to you more willingly.

Being basically very honest or truthful will increase the human bonding because they both build trust in a relationship which is the magic glue which starts relationships and maintains them for a long duration.

If you have a large problem which you haven’t solved don’t communicate it at first because humans may think that you will still have that large problem later on in the relationship and will start to avoid you.

People are quick to use generalizations or stereotypes to classify gender and race and (large and small groups of people) and frequently do injustice to those that don’t fit the stereotype.

Most of us are guilty of these frequent unjust biases or stereotypes of people because we don’t take the time to see a human for the complete human which they really are.

Point out that there are important exceptions to stereotypes whenever possible.

Try to judge humans on the basis of who they really are and not on what you think they should be  based upon your initial first impressions only.

Give humans time to reveal their true selves before you make a final judgment about their true personality.

People are impressed by authority figures with expertise and positions of leadership and charisma gotten mainly with a good honest reputation.

Try to nurture these characteristics if you want to be a successful leader.

There are basically leaders and followers within groups.

The leaders make most of the important decisions and the followers usually go along without much resistance and make the unimportant decisions.

Some leadership styles are more democratic and will let followers vote on what actions to take but these styles are not very efficient and majority consensus is frequently difficult to come by.

There are basically relatively independent humans who depend upon their own grasp of the world to function and the relatively dependent people who frequently seek the guidance of others when they function.

The wise person tries to operate independently as much as possible but realizes realistic limitations and seeks guidance when in great doubt about how to function well.

Most people try to maintain their habitual ways of thinking and doing things and frequently feel threatened by large deviations from these habitual norms.

Seemingly very new or radical departures from habit are frequently a recipe for a much fear and turmoil and emotional extremes.

Introduce great change in small increments if possible to avoid much confusion and fear.

Time and effort and energy and money invested in a behavior and/or concept increases the probability that one will maintain the behavior and/or concept more strongly and for a lengthier period of time.

Get a person to invest a little in your recommended behavior and/or concept and the chances are you will more easily get further investments in the future.

Something which has strong emotional appeal will frequently attract people more so than something which is merely presented in a rational or logical way.

It is unfortunate but emotions rule most people in this illogical world and you have to realize that an appeal to good emotions is frequently more successful a convincing tool than logical reasoned facts.

If you are trying to sell a product or concept or behavior then prime your potential customer emotionally first and then make your sales pitch.

Prime a person emotionally as much as possible if you want to more successfully sell a human on a behavior and/or concept and/or product.

People prefer certainty and prefer to judge things such as events and behaviors in a black or white and yes or no fashion and are usually not very good at judging probabilities which may be presented to them.

Try to present simple choices rather than probabilistic choices to people without a background in probability.

If you found this article helpful then continue to read my blogs and read a book or two. Enjoy!!!!!!

Extreme or very intense happiness or ecstasy is usually fleeting in average people and is often associated with orgasm and drug highs. After the initial high we are unhappy or happy the same way as before and with drugs we can be terribly addicted and unhappy with the side effects.

There is also the happiness of creative work which is experienced by skilled creative professionals who are in a state of mostly impulsive creativity that is almost like an outer body experience.

It is working purposefully at your job or minimally doing something pleasant that causes moments of happiness and correspondingly moments of unhappiness. The truth shall set you free of all historical paradoxes!!!

Throw all that literary historical crap into the garbage and recycle it into truly useful logical knowledge about the world on the internet. Throw out all that crappy emotional mythological literature in the book stores and all that literary crap coming out in future publications!!! It is all making almost everyone terribly unhappy and depressed.

Start trashing all that emotional irrational literary crap in our public schools too. The new generation does not want to be made terribly unhappy by reading it!!! Reading about something historical or a literary novel does not produce as much happiness as learning a useful purposeful skill in school or learning how to work the computer to search the internet and get useful knowledge about the things you really like or would like to learn about, doing a daily job, being with family or close friends, and generally doing something you like.

Don’t spend your day dreaming about something. Go out and do something useful even if it is only to clean up your room or house, do the dishes, do the laundry, take out the garbage, and mow the lawn if you have one, communicate with friends over the internet, and exercise in your own home or outdoors with a close friend or by yourself. Try to find a job in the real world if you can and make yourself useful to society.

Doing something like a play activity such as riding a bicycle, riding a go cart, using a skateboard, or learning to use real tools on wood and metal is the best way to occupy your free time. Don’t forget to use the internet to open your eyes to all the things which you suddenly become interested in and want to follow up.  You don’t need a teacher. Just Google up the question and find the answer quickly. Teach yourself about the world around you yourself by learning on and from the internet!!!

Don’t dream about becoming a sports star or celebrity. Get on with your life and learn some useful skills and become a handyman or handiwoman around the house and elsewhere.

The most happiness is gotten by having a trusting, honest, truthful relationship with spouse, children, and close friends. Acquaintances don’t count for much in terms of lasting happiness but you should try to have some casual friends also because they may potentially become good or better friends later in life, even if it is only in the retirement years!!!

WHEN YOU LOSE A CLOSE LOVE, CHILD, CLOSE FRIEND OR ACQUAINTANCE THE FOLLOWING SONG BY B. B. KING SHOWS HOW YOU FEEL, VERY LONELY AND ABANDONED. 

Follow my advice and you will find happiness in your life guaranteed but no one is going to give happiness to you with a silver spoon or on a free platter. You will have to work on your happiness by yourself.

Here are some energizing songs and relationship songs which can help you raise your spirits or entertain you while you are exercising or having fun listening to music when you walk, ride a car, or are waiting for something important to happen in your life. Use some of the love songs on your dates and the girls or women will experience ecstasy.

Don’t listen to crappy music but start listening to some awesome historical songs by reading my book THE BEST OF THE BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD, which you can find by searching under my name on Kindle or Book Nook and it will only cost you $3. Go to you tube and select the original versions to listen to.

MONEY AND HAPPINESS IN THIS BRAINWASHED DELUDED MATERIAL WORLD!!! THE PROBLEMS OF SOCIETY CAN ALL BE SUMMARIZED THREE WORDS: MONEY, CARS, AND SHOPPING!!!

I INCLUDE 3 SONGS WHICH ARE A SAMPLE OF THE BAD BRAINWASHING WHICH IS GOING ON IN SOCIETY.

Here is a small sample of energizing songs followed by some love songs. You can check on remixed versions of the same songs sung by current vocalists and see if you like them better that way.

THE GREATEST Songs are to be sung and updated periodically by the best singers in the world where no mention has to be made of the original singer because historical singers are not to be idolized or remembered, only their greatest songs should live on to be further improved upon by future generations.  “BECOME SONG IDOLIZERS NOT PEOPLE IDOLIZERS.”   Enjoy!!!
