THE TRUTH ABOUT LEGALITY*

rsz_legal-and-illegal-options-with-legal-circled-960x645

Legality: n. a behavior(s) and/or subset(s) permitted by law including all the implied permitted social behaviors which are not recorded and may be done

There are legal things which you can do according to law, there are legal public things which you can do and not get punished because they are acceptable public norms but not written into official laws, and there are legal things which you can do in the privacy of your own home or on your personal property.

Criminal and violent or abusive behavior in private is theoretically illegal but is sometimes hard to prosecute without probable cause or evidence of the illegality.

With so many unjust laws on the books you are probably involved in doing something illegal without even knowing it or doing so because the law is so unjust in your personal opinion that it deserves to be disobeyed.

It is theoretically illegal to discriminate against women on the job and illegal to discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion, and handicap but it is subtly being done all the time since humans are impulsive creatures conditioned by past experience, beliefs, and prejudicial views which are held by almost everyone to some degree because of the herd instinct in all of us.

Historical prejudices die hard and most make decisions based on stereotypic beliefs about human types. They are quick to stereotype humans into preconceived impulsive categories. Caution based on fear of the unknown and difference persists and humans tend to shy away or try to avoid certain stereotypic humans based merely on looks and behavioral quirks.

It’s illegal to discriminate but the truth is that we do out of necessity discriminate between humans based on looks and behavior alone in an impulsive way and seldom give enough time to many humans to prove themselves to be worthy of our attention and respect.

THE TRUTH ABOUT EMBEZZLEMENT***

6757900_600x338

Embezzlement:  n. willfully and fraudulently stealing money and/or property with which one has been legally entrusted

If you are a lawyer in charge of a trust, an accountant in charge of money allocations, a businessman in charge of money investments, an employer, or an employee in charge of money you can potentially be an embezzler. Nothing is more important than an honest reputation which has been earned over years of trustworthy financial transactions.

Finding an honest lawyer, accountant, financial advisor, or financial investor who has a sterling record of past performance and happy long duration customers is difficult to find and they usually are pretty pricey too if you do find them.

For the average investor a guaranteed annual return of more than 4% should be a red flag under current economic situations of very low or no growth at all. If you are being promised an annual return of about 12% it is just a matter of time before the Ponzi scheme will crash and burn and you will definitely lose all your money investment, especially if there is another economic crash in the stock market.

Clever embezzlers steal only a little money so it goes relatively unnoticed but fortunately many start to get greedy and steal so much that many of them get caught eventually.

Is there such a thing as legal embezzling of your money? There isn’t but there should be because the government and banks are legally embezzling your money with inflation and ridiculously low interest returns on bank savings accounts.

The federal government is about as safe a guarantor of your money as you can get these days but bank savings accounts give you an almost zero return on your money invested so there is no safe guaranteed long duration return on your money any place anymore, except in real estate in the right neighborhood.

Corporate stock dividends seem like a sure thing but you can lose all of your yearly gains in a few days if the market crashes again and the value of the stock plunges and doesn’t recover to its former value.

THE TRUTH ABOUT COMPLIANCE***

pci-compliance

Compliance: n. obeying a (command(s) and/or demand(s)) and/or (request(s) and/or rule(s)) and/or (law(s) and/or requirement(s)) and/or (procedure(s) and/or subset(s)) frequently without and/or with the use of (force and/or the threat of force) and/or persuasion

Compliance basically means that you are obeying or following established procedures, commands, demands, requests, rules, laws, and requirements.  In effect you are obeying a subset(s). Frequently you obey without coercion but sometimes force, the threat of force, and persuasion is used to get you to obey or comply.

Why do we obey laws and guidelines or are compliant? It is probably because we have been persuaded that it is a good law or guideline or wish to avoid being caught disobeying it and being reprimanded and/or fined and/or imprisoned.

If we strongly disagree with a law or guideline then we may disobey it when we feel we are safe and probably won’t get caught disobeying it.

Prohibition of alcohol was a failure because too many humans wanted to drink and so many broke the law that it became inefficient to prosecute and put so many in jail. Marijuana laws may suffer the same fate but there should always be laws against driving intoxicated or under the influence.

Cars may soon be driving themselves so the only place where drug use may still be illegal is in the workplace where a clear head may be vital to good job performance.

Compliance to laws is a tricky thing because too many laws makes compliance very hard and inefficient. No laws results in too much chaos. Knowing which laws and guidelines are just and necessary sometimes only comes from experimentation and unfortunately once a law or guideline is on the books then it is almost impossible to change it or replace it with better alternatives.

THE TRUTH ABOUT DUTY***

Lifeguard-on-Duty-Sign-iStockphoto-630x402

Duty: n. being responsible because of (habit and/or morality) and/or legality and the responsibility is frequently a subset(s) demanded by (a human(s) and/or a family(s)) and/or (an organization(s) and/or society)

Duty is recognizing the need for responsibility and being motivated to behave responsibly as an authority figure.

You may know how to behave responsibly towards yourself, a human, family, organization, or society and proceed to do so whenever the need arises.

You may fear illegality, social censure, and criticism by a human if you do not behave dutifully or you may just feel that behaving dutifully is the right thing to do.

Whether motivated by fear or a good conscience or both, most of us try to fulfill our duties and behave responsibly to the best of our ability.

We all have a duty to behave responsibly towards ourselves, other humans, and the world which includes a duty to save and expand wilderness!!!!!!
