THE UNITED STATES MAY SOON BECOME A RICH CORRUPT ELITE AT THE TOP AND MOST AT THE FLAWED MORAL AND FINANCIAL BOTTOM!!!

Before I descend into a relatively pessimistic future outlook I want to point out the optimistic developments in the United States at the present time. The housing market is relatively stable if you don’t include a shortage of rental apartments at a reasonable rental rate. Car ownership is high and many can still afford the transportation even though the costs of maintaining cars are taking up a larger and larger percentage of earned income. The airlines and travel business seems to be doing fine.

Theft is not getting out of hand due to surveillance cameras almost everywhere and there is relatively successful law enforcement even though the incarceration rate is relatively high. There are affordable electronic security devices for those who have valuable things which can be readily stolen. Most humans who want social contact and readily available information can access the worldwide web with their computers or cellphones that don’t bust their budget.

Economic hard times are bringing humans together into smaller living quarters out of necessity and more humans are once again learning to live together under more stressful thrifty circumstances. The opportunities to improve oneself through selfeducation are available on the internet for all those courageous and determined individuals who want to make something more of themselves. Opportunity is not dead even though the traditional educational system is a colossal failure job wise and is morally corrupt with a leftist dogmatic ideology, especially in academia, dominating to the point where dissent and opposing views are being overtly suppressed.

Now we will delve into all the minuses of what’s left of the traditional culture and then end with an attempt at proposing measures which may improve things if courageously implemented from the top down by moral leadership.

Moral decay is what the major problem is with fewer and fewer examples of good role models with integrity to be found in leadership positions. It is sad to see too many celebrities with drug abuse problems, promiscuity, profanity, left wing dogmatic ideology, and bad marital relationships being paraded for all to see in the media. Historically the media has been and is being the source of moral decay with its portrayal of drug use, gambling, promiscuity, profanity, violence, and dysfunctional family life all overly dramatized to merely shock and entertain the viewing audience. The real problem with the media and entertainment industry is that it has replaced a tolerance for deviant behavior with a glorification of deviant behavior which has further led to a destruction of financially responsible moral family units and values.

With a celebrity president much rational objective discourse has been abandoned in favor of a tabloid press which sensationalizes most news events and even manufactures news events which has just added to the problem of fake news, fake information, and fake reviews. Trust in the media and in the leadership is at an all time low. Knowing what is true and what is not becomes ever harder to determine.

Many good reputations are being destroyed almost overnight and once destroyed it is almost impossible to regain that reputation back again. Trust in celebrities, academia, politicians, the media, and other leadership positions has been ruined and once trust is broken it can take a whole generation of moral behavior to regain that trust again. Chaotic or bad leadership is the result of moral decay, especially when globalist money is in charge of the media and economy with a left leaning dogmatic propagandized ideology which obliterates rational objective truth and tries to brainwash the world into politically correct subservience.

With the exception of the technological financially well off elite, the rest of the population becomes and remains more ignorant than ever. Computer software and artificial intelligence can play better chess and better poker than human players as it also begins to replace human jobs by the bucketful even in the traditional professional areas long thought to be safe from robotization.

Yes, soon we should have smarter robot parents, robot teachers, robot doctors, etc. who will be examples of moral integrity with the potential to be respected and admired. Putting robots in charge of raising a new generation of moral offspring is the ultimate solution to an army of dysfunctional parent role models which are so numerous in the United States and the world in general.

So there is hope in the future for humanity once it is aided and largely replaced by smart moral robots and computer software. Who will program and supervise the smart robots? The technological elite may prevail and unfortunately they are going to be almost the only remaining top down source of excellence and moral leadership. Yes, things should get better but it will be a rather long time coming and hopefully the constitution will not be bastardized and warped by an overly zealous left wing ideological judiciary during that duration.

If you are largely ignorant of technology with a poverty paycheck or on welfare then you unfortunately will just become a citizen of a nation largely populated by mostly sheepish humans ruled by corrupt politicians or a smart moral or immoral technological elite. Which alternative is chosen should be up to voting citizens but judging by historical precedent the rule will probably be with the money and left wing tyrannical ideology of the corrupt globalists.

I have tried to aid in this moral renaissance by proposing a secular moral code for the world to teach to all impressionable young minds in detail with abundant examples so that almost every 13 year old will know what is right and wrong when it comes to interacting with other humans. The secular moral code is- 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. Details of this secular moral code are available in my Amazon book SECULAR MORAL CODE and you can search my website with keywords for more details. Happy hunting. Enjoy!

WHEN IT IS BEST TO BE SILENT AND NOT OVERTLY HONEST!!!

I would just like to start off by saying that for humans whom you trust unconditionally such as your spouse, close relatives, and close friends you can usually be even blatantly honest about almost anything and not run the risk of ruining your reputation or breaking up the relationship if it is a good one to begin with. For everyone else, here are some cautionary statements where it is often wiser to not say anything at all or make a noncommittal remark.

If you say that you HATE something about a human or think that a human is ugly and there is little chance of that human changing one’s looks, beliefs, ideas, or behavior then it is best to keep silent about the subject. Nothing is more offensive to a human than to be called ugly because of a big nose, big breasts, big ears, little breasts, little penis, or some unchangeable handicap. Say that you HATE an adult’s beliefs, ideas, or behavior and you may irreversibly offend them and destroy the possibility of a closer relationship.

If someone puts you on the spot and asks if you think their nose is ugly then you can say nothing, say- no comment, or you can say- it looks normal to me, or other such kind phrase.

If a behavior is immoral then it is OK to hate it and say so but if it is a sincerely held belief, idea, or opinion then saying that you hate it is not a very diplomatic approach. Calmly discussing the belief, idea, or opinion is the best approach if you are asked your opinion of it. If you disagree with it strongly and you can’t convince or persuade them otherwise then you can end the discussion by saying we agree to disagree on the subject. Of course if you truly HATE something and don’t want to explode in an argument then you can say I don’t want to discuss it or talk about it now or ever.

There are other situations where silence or some tactful response may be necessary for a stranger, acquaintance, or casual friend. You may not want to reveal intimate sexual details about your spouse, your weaknesses or secretive bad habits, and private eccentricities very deviant from normative behavior.

Some feel that personal income is also none of your business and you may be surprised how many more things are none of your business mostly from pretentious humans. If you are not pretentious and have very little to hide then maintaining your integrity and credibility is of paramount importance so you should answer as truthfully as possible to almost any question which you are asked. Courage at being truthful is often rewarded with earned respect and sometimes even a bit of admiration.

If you are a businessman or businesswoman then there may be some trade secrets which you may want to guard against dissemination, especially to competing enterprises. As long as those secrets are not collusion with other companies or price fixing and other unfair monopolistic practices then trying to keep special recipes or manufacturing techniques is really acceptable business practice.

Even in business it is just a matter of time before your secrets will be revealed either by disgruntled employees or other covert spying techniques so don’t expect your secrets to last forever and don’t make your business dependent on those secrets in the long duration. If you have a devoted efficient business model then transparency in most matters is not such a bad thing but may even encourage desirable company loyalty.

In a tyranny or communist nation it is sometimes dangerous to reveal your honest opinions but in relatively free western democracies it usually is advantageous to be honest unless you have conservative views in a largely democrat corporation, democrat academia, or democrat organization in general.

A HAPPY ENDURING MALE FEMALE FAMILY LIFE IS QUICKLY BECOMING SCARCE IN THE UNITED STATES!!!

Portrait of a extended happy family standing in the park.

Responsible financial living, a commonly held morality, and good family role models are the most important indicators of a potentially happy lasting two parent marriage.

Financially about half of Americans get some form of welfare money assistance, many college graduates are badly prepared with inadequate job skills and are burdened with great money debt when they graduate, a large percentage of families are living paycheck to paycheck or are in great personal money debt, and often rich offspring used to an easy dependent life know how to spend money but are not financially smart enough to function on a budget and make more than they spend.

Credit cards, inflation and paltry interest on savings accounts discourages savings for a rainy day, and advertising encourages profligate spending making many teeter on the border of bankruptcy during most of their adult lives. They don’t know how to invest in a secure investment which is not a very risky one. In effect, most Americans are ignorant of sound money management principles and don’t know what to do with their money except spend it. Frugal money management which makes a nation prosperous and secure is discouraged in almost every part of society and is not even taught in most schools.

A commonly held morality is very important. Not lying, not stealing, and no adultery are vital to moral family living.  Not only is lying and stealing bad because it breaks the bonding trust between humans but adultery and promiscuity often also leads to divorce and ending of a close mother father bonding relationship. If you can’t trust your spouse in a society which encourages much temptation and promiscuity then no lasting enduring and committed relationship is often possible in your private family sex life.

Good wholesome family male female role models are also necessary because most offspring learn by imitation or observance of how their parents interact. Single mother or single father families on welfare and elsewhere are bad male female family role models and makes it much less probable for offspring to have happy wholesome two parent families themselves. Divorced family life is also a killer of happy family relationships for offspring who don’t understand that a happy marriage can also be for a lifetime between male and female if you put in the right kind of effort.

Offspring from single parent homes and divorced homes are also bad child role models in school and in the neighborhood so not only parent role models are often bad but offspring role models are also frequently bad examples of what happy moral offspring should be. Add to this the almost total absence of wholesome role model families with offspring among celebrities, in soap operas, movies, TV, and videos and there is a dearth of good wholesome media family role models to imitate. Realistically, family life is just not one continuous form of entertainment which society pushes on us but a serious financially, morally responsible lifestyle which fewer and fewer experience first hand and end up imitating later in life.

Is it any wonder that the birth rate is the lowest it has ever been. Family life is an expensive lifestyle which requires much sacrifice of time, effort, and money per offspring which fewer and fewer Americans are willing to commit to. They not only don’t have enough money but often they don’t even have basic relationship and parenting skills necessary to be financially and morally responsible adults and raise financially and morally responsible offspring into adulthood. So a happy long lasting family life is fast becoming relatively scarce in the United States.

Add to this pessimistic family situation an abundance of very bad habits such as addictions to alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, promiscuity, profanity, compulsive shopping, etc. and you have a recipe for family and personal chronic dysfunctions. America is a sick society not only health wise with about 50% taking prescription drugs within a 30 day period but also sick financially, morally, politically, and behaviorally. I see no great immediate cure for all the human relationship problems which confront America. America has gotten much worse than just being a fat lazy ignorant society and desperately needs immigrant families willing to work hard and smart and raise responsible moral offspring.

Yes, I am a long duration optimist and see smart moral robot parents and software as human kind’s salvation. But that is not happening any time soon and society will have to descend into further chaos before smart robots or a moral human political tyranny takes over and returns society to some semblance of order and healthy wholesome two parent family living.

You can get cynical and claim that bad family life is the antidote to human overpopulation of the earth. Even though there is some truth to this fact, stable family relationships create social stability which is desirable in any prospering financially and morally sound nation.

INEFFICIENCY IS USUALLY IMMORAL IN NATURE!!!

Science has and is studying nature and has come up with a mathematical definition for efficiency. Science has shown how efficient lifeforms survive in greater numbers and succeed in reproducing for the benefit of future generations. Wilderness and wildlife is extremely efficient and remarkably does so in a non polluting sustainable way.

Now it is time to apply as much of this efficiency as possible to the human condition or behavior which is generally very inefficient, very polluting also, and not sustainable in the long duration. My primary focus will be the efficiency of human behavior but I will momentarily digress to show the role that efficiency plays in wild nature.

Without getting mathematical I will try to explain the fundamental principles of human efficiency and hope that this will eventually convince you that human efficiency is a very desirable and even a moral necessity. If you are WASTING time and energy and often money also in the pursuit of a just goal(s) then you are being inefficient.

For humans wasting time and energy in the process of achieving a goal(s) morally is being inefficient. Notice that the goal which you are trying to achieve is a very important consideration because some goals require little energy and some goals require much energy in a short duration.

Using predators as an example, cheetahs spend much time using up very little energy while stalking their prey but put on a tremendous burst of energy in a short duration when they commit to catching prey, the goal. When the goal is to stalk prey you can erroneously conclude that the cheetah is wasting time but the truth is that it is not wasting but conserving energy which it needs to catch prey in sudden bursts of energy expenditure. The goal is to catch the prey and if the cheetah is very inefficient it will fail at catching prey too many times, waste much energy, and ultimately risk starvation and death.

Why do I say that inefficiency is USUALLY immoral in nature. Well, if the predator is super efficient then the possibility that he will catch and eat all the prey may lead to starvation and death also since there is no more prey to hunt. That is why most predators are not super efficient or catch and kill ALL the prey that they hunt for.

For humans becoming an adult and making good money in some profession is a laudable goal. Many have spent little time and energy acquiring a useful education which includes important subjects for the technological world such as math, science, and economics. Many have taken the easy way out by taking subjects which don’t require much time and energy or effort and find themselves with college degrees which are job poor and with so few sellable skills that they wind up working in starter jobs at minimum wage.

For humans useful goals are the most important and if you don’t consider yourself academic material because of insufficient ability then a vocation is a more practical and logical choice to try and achieve.

Before launching into a comprehensive discussion of the immorality of inefficiency it is important to address one major objection and that is that there are efficient moral humans and efficient immoral humans and criminals. You could argue that efficiency is amoral and applies equally to all kinds of humans. An efficient criminal will get away with his or her stealing and lying more often than an inefficient criminal who will more readily get caught and punished. An efficient moral human will succeed much better in having a good family, good friends,  earning a good reputation, and gaining better social status than a moral but inefficient human.

Efficiency is really the morality of NATURE and whether you are predator or criminal OR prey or law abiding moral human, if you are inefficient then you will be punished in some way in the long duration. So efficiency is a universal morality for all lifeforms on the surface of this earth. The efficient will be rewarded most of the time and the inefficient will be punished sooner or later most of the time.

For human behavior, making too many of the same mistakes over and over again, talking too much or being verbose, spending too much money and time on relatively trivial pursuits such as games and compulsive shopping, watching too much mindless TV, arguing instead of discussing, procrastinating, not being punctual, incompetence, spending too much time and energy on bad habits such as gambling, pornography, promiscuity, drugs, alcoholism, gluttony, lust, etc., and all these human behaviors have an inefficiency component which I consider immoral and which most current moral humans consider bad behavior most of the time.

The goal(s) that you are trying to achieve and the means used are very important when considering the immorality of inefficiency. If your goal is to make money then there is the moral and immoral way of doing it. If you lie and steal efficiently, both immoral acts most of the time, to get money, then you don’t seem bad from the efficiency standpoint but you are using immoral means since you are lying and stealing which is of primary importance and considered bad.

Yes, efficiency is not a good or bad behavior but depends on the means used to achieve a goal also. It is the age old question of whether the ends justify the means. In times of peace to maintain social order and peaceful interaction between humans it is not wise to permit lying and stealing which leads to social chaos in the long duration if accepted or permitted.

Gambling is bad for most humans because it is an inefficient use of money which they usually end up losing. However, risk taking is a form of gambling by entrepreneurs and is vital for progress to be made in society. If your goal is to make money via a new business venture then it is usually moral to do so and if you are efficient then you should make a profit if the investment is a sound one and you provide a service or product which customers need or desire.

Morality is a rather complex issue to discuss and what we have so far established is that it is a moral behavior if the means to get to a goal(s) is a moral process and the goal(s) itself is socially desirable. Finally, it is even a better or more moral outcome if it is done efficiently.

You can be a very moral or outstanding human but if you do so inefficiently then you are immoral to some degree although not chronically immoral. So for all those thinking that they are morally flawless or impeccable, if you are inefficient then you still are not a perfectly moral human, especially according to nature.

THE POLITICAL CIRCUS IS JUST ANOTHER SYMPTOM OF MORAL DECAY!!!

So what has the United States to look forward to? I think it is a further decline into chaos resulting from moral decay which will only end in some form of ideological and actual tyranny to restore some semblance of order in society.

A democratic republic is not dead yet but polarization and an inability for Congress to reach consensus on many important issues has deadlocked the government into inaction. Executive actions to try and do something reasonable is being hampered in the courts and points to a stalemate or an inability to get things done such as the border crisis of illegal immigrants into the country.

Trumps amateur mercurial authoritarian style of leadership is not working very well in practice and there even is no consensus within the Democratic or the Republican parties themselves. Wherever you look there are serious problems.

A growing deficit, increasing healthcare costs, jobs lost to automation, a growing welfare class which includes many illegal immigrants, family breakdown, unfavorable trade balances, a dysfunctional educational system not adequately training for technological jobs, educational loan debt, and crumbling infrastructure all need more money to keep going and tax revenue is just not increasing.

More free health care, free education, and a guaranteed basic national income are the only new solutions which are being offered which all cost more money and really mean higher taxes. The quality of health care, the quality of education, and the quality of the workforce is lousy and no amount of money thrown at the problems will solve the poor health, bad education, and lazy ignorant workforce.

Yes, eating organic food with less sugar and toxic chemicals added could improve the health of pill popping Americans in the long duration. More technological education and getting teenagers to start working in their teens to develop a work ethic is a possible long duration solution but no one is proposing legal and financial incentives to bring about this desperately needed change. Throw more money at a problem which needs a solution first is no way to improve a bad situation which will only get worse with time. It seems the smart humans with real solutions and integrity are out to lunch and the lousy status quo reigns supreme.

Moral decay has resulted in much less trust in government, in politicians, in celebrities, the media, in the leadership of the deep state, and in the court system which includes the constitution. A sensationalist tabloid media and an ignorant amateur politician president have created a circus like atmosphere where it seems any crazy or deviant ideas and actions are televised for all to see.

Human reputations are destroyed at will with insults, put downs, name calling, ridicule, and humiliation. There seems to be no one in leadership positions with integrity intact but almost all have been mercilessly assaulted with slanderous and even libelous remarks which are grievances not redressed because it is the public domain where deceptions and lies are flourishing without prosecution.

Politics without a secular moral code to guide it is a circus of immorality which can only end in some form of tyranny to restore some semblance of order out of the chaos. A common consensus on moral principles is necessary for a nation to thrive. Without that moral consensus a well ordered peaceful society degenerates into immoral chaos.

Yes, it is time to include a secular moral code into the constitution and indoctrinate all impressionable young minds with it so that teenagers impulsively know what is right or wrong, moral or immoral. Eventually those moral teenagers will grow up to be politicians and leaders with integrity which is what our current crop of politicians and many leaders severely lack.

What is a secular moral code which every human with integrity can agree on almost anywhere in the world?

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. If you want the details then read my book Secular Moral Code on Amazon.
