POLITICS OR THE THEATER OF THE ABSURD!!!

Politics has always been boring for me and I am almost sorry that I tuned in to it on an almost daily basis after the miraculous election of Trump. I never have liked politicians since I always knew that they sold their souls to the highest bidder. Up until the Trump presidency there was at least a semblance of some order on a daily basis and I just viewed politics as a rather mundane excursion into dysfunctional government.

With the election of Trump politics has been turned into a theater of the absurd. Absurd to spend over 2 years and about 35 million to prove there was no collusion or treason with Russia and absurd to continue the drama with subpoenas of individuals and subpoenas for information without probable cause of any stated criminal activity. This is just tantamount to a never ending harassing fishing expedition. A congressional oversight committee has been turned into a harassment committee delusionally hoping to uncover high crimes and misdemeanors but not having the slightest clue which high crimes they are talking about.

Yes, Trump is an embarrassing amateur politician with good intentions but relative incompetence when it comes to substantive follow through on the good intentions. But is that any reason to vehemently oppose anything that he says or tries to do just because you basically hate his guts?  He does have the guts of a fighter even though you can sometimes say that he doesn’t fight fair and can throw around political mud with the best of them!

The almost 20 Democratic candidates for president are also mostly absurd 3 old farts and the rest relative newbies with minimal executive experience. All of the candidates are cannibalizing each other and no one really has that much charisma. I am so disappointed that I am tempted to turn off the theater of the absurd and only return back on about election day in 2020.

Will any progress be made in the next year and a half? I sincerely doubt it and it will probably be the same old BS up until election day.

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.

TRUMP: AN AMATEUR POLITICIAN FIGHTING THE RULING CLASS!!!

It is somewhat of a miracle that a celebrity real estate tycoon was elected president after fighting against the Republican political establishment and then having to fight against the Democratic establishment, the Democratic media establishment, and yes even the leadership of the deep state establishment. One man fighting the leadership of the establishment and yet ironically being a member of the establishment elite.

Say what you will about his flawed character or personality but he is by far the one with the most balls or courage to come down the pike in recent history. He has unmasked the corrupt ruthlessness and biases of the elite establishment and I think politics will never be the same old dribble as long as he is in office. It would be nice but Utopian to believe that one man could cure what ails the corrupt dysfunctional leadership of the United States but he has succeeded in unmasking the charade or deceptions of the leadership elite. Regaining obedient trust in the wisdom of the leadership has been shattered and the only way that the leadership will regain that trust is through smart actions and results which will benefit the nation in the long duration.

Trump has made skeptics out of many of us. Many of us now doubt that the leadership is working towards our benefit and not just for the benefit of the monied ruling elite. Already we are seeing some politicians promising everyone free medicine, free schooling, and more welfare goodies but not being too concerned about telling them where the bulk of the money will be coming from to pay for the free stuff.

Big money has always been influential and a priority in politics. In a global economy the Special interests of international banks and corporations is wielding a heavy foot on the fiscal and ideological policy of every nation including the United States.

It is not outside the realm of possibility that soon there will be a guaranteed national basic income for everyone because most will soon not be able to find work in an increasingly technological, robotized, and computer software workplace. There will probably be the technological ruling elite and most will be little more than obedient serfs strung out on feel good drugs and living off of a fixed low income. The well off at the top of the income ladder and the vast majority at the lower end of the income ladder. Most of the middle class will have been destroyed.

Yes, votes will then count and most will be voting for an increase in the national basic income. Unless their votes are reduced to a fraction of a vote, their luxurious demands will quickly bankrupt the welfare economy of the nation. Yes, we may wind up having to tax the robots and computer software that will be doing most of the labor or work and thinking in the nation and not tax the humans on welfare with no income earned.

This all sounds like a doomsday scenario but unless the mechanics of running the nation are radically changed a Democratic Republic will be transformed into an ideological one party tyranny from which there will be no return.

IS THERE A NON VIOLENT SOLUTION TO A CORRUPT COLLUDING ESTABLISHMENT LEADERSHIP?

It is tragic when money becomes the primary motivation and morality takes a back seat in an anything goes power struggle for dominance.

Top universities accept bribes or donations which predominate in many enrollment decisions and phony enhanced resumes are made for a fee by shady enterprises and then submitted by the children of wealthy parents to top universities.

A financially failing establishment media resorts to tabloid sensationalism to try and enhance their ratings and hopefully boost their bottom line.

The leadership of the deep state colludes with the media and justice department in a more than two year drawn out systematic investigation of Russian collusion by the president only to find out after spending millions of dollars of taxpayer’s money that there was no Russian collusion. During those more than two years it was trial by public media without any real evidence but a stated certitude of guilt by association and circumstantial dubious so called evidence.

Celebrities joined the media in the BS fest with profanities, ridicule, insults, put downs, name calling, humiliations, and merciless criticism. Promiscuity and female abuse and exploitation was and probably still is quite rampant and acceptable in the entertainment business.

Neither the Democratic nor the Republican party has any charismatic and morally sound candidates either in office or running for office. Since the establishment media is on a steep decline it is debatable whether any candidate will be able to work their way up to enough name recognition to challenge Trump with a somewhat notorious nationwide celebrity name recognition.

Big money tech firms and international and national corporations are showing an ideological left wing bias which is further evidence of international globalist collusion with monetary world domination as a goal.

There was and perhaps always has been a politicization of the Supreme Court and recently there are overt attempts at making ideology dominant over constitutional principles.

Opioid and drug abuse is killing more young adults than car accidents, ruining many lives, and marijuana stocks are the new business money craze.

No serious legislative attempts are made to solve illegal border crossings and fundamentally Congress is deadlocked and thus dysfunctional. Can cheap labor and future Democrats be the reason for the Congressional deadlock which goes back about 30 years?

I could go on and on bitching about the sorry state of affairs the United States is in and unfortunately the only solution is more transparency or public internet knowledge of governmental functions, government workers, and special interests which are humans, institutions, businesses, and foreign nations lobbying Congress and their relatives with sweetheart deals.

I left out the most important long duration solution to corruption and that is a fundamentally moral public. A secular moral code should be taught to all impressionable young elementary students so that they know what is right and what is wrong by the age of about 13 so they can be considered to be moral adults.

Knowing what is right or wrong, moral or immoral is a fundamental necessity for humans since the dawn of human cultural history and ethical or moral relativity is just not a good foundation for impulsively judging humans who comprise the vast majority of any national population. By the age of about 13 children should IMPULSIVELY know what is right or wrong from a moral and if you prefer an ethical viewpoint.

Believing in a secular moral or ethical code is a form of self government over one’s behaviors in society because forced morality from above is impossible to enforce if the public does not believe in it and has not been indoctrinated from early childhood. What is that secular moral code? I have offered my suggestion for one in my blog and book titled Secular Moral Code.

If interested the secular moral 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.

Religion is on the decline worldwide and has been the major repository of morality or advice on how to live peacefully with your fellow humans. Take away religion and a moral indoctrination and you have chaotic dysfunctional behavior in humans. Religious morality has some drawbacks because of all the mythology which is no longer believable in the modern world. But religious morality absolutely must be replaced with a secular morality which most can agree with and form a necessary consensus of opinion.

Join me in trying to make a secular morality popular among the movers and shakers of this world. More realistically try practicing this morality in your own and children’s lives. Of course you will need details so start searching my encyclopedic blog by keyword and if you are not interested in morality questions and answers then pick topics like parenting, relationships, marriage, dating, love, integrity, trustworthiness, honesty, truth, etc. Happy hunting!

WHAT IS LIKELY WHEN ROBOTS AND COMPUTER SOFTWARE STARTS TO CONTROL MOST THINGS???

When computer automation takes over most jobs, who will be in a position to consume products and services without earned income? Well, obviously those maintaining the technology will be in the forefront with more than decent wages but the vast majority will be on some form of government welfare and on a fixed income.

Politically this is a little scary because the overwhelming majority will always vote for more welfare money and this could enslave the remaining elite working class and make them slaves supporting the welfare class. I would strongly suggest that we reduce the votes of those on welfare to a fraction of one vote so that the vote of the minority working class has more clout. Of course this will need a constitutional amendment which is probably highly unlikely to pass.

The robots will be the new dominant workers and it makes sense that they will eventually be taxed to fund all the humans which they have replaced and now will be living on welfare. A guaranteed annual minimum wage without working has already been proposed so effectively most will not be working but just spending money given by the government. The political and social ramifications are revolutionary but the financial ramifications are revolutionary also where financial growth is going to be dependent on an increase in robot productivity and not human productivity.

There will be no credit for those on welfare so spending and their income will only rise if their government benefits will. Inflation will be less of a problem because there will be over production. Monopolistic production may be in the hands of relatively few so prices and inflation may rise because of product price increases in the monopolistic economy.

Most humans will no longer own their own cars, own homes, and recreational vehicles but will be renting them if they save up enough money. They will be riding around in hired driverless vehicles, living in apartments, having few if any offspring, and spending most of their time at home. They will be eating, drinking, doing drugs, having sex, and spending most of their time online in search of entertainment or if smart, seeking further useful educational advancement.

For some, not having to work sounds like utopia but for others it is a kind of dystopia or permanent retirement from life with all its possible adventures, anxieties, stresses, and tragedies. Was human kind meant to live in retirement mode or will it cause a dramatic increase in health problems, addictions, and mental illness? Only time will tell.

Small businesses will dramatically decrease because the initial capital investment in them will be huge and the probability of failure extremely high. Specialty internet small businesses may still thrive but employed workers for these enterprises will probably be minimal.

Actually what I have outlined so far is a likely scenario if a country is self sustaining  or self supporting and produces everything that it consumes. Realistically we are in a competitive worldwide environment of relatively free trade and the threat of financial national bankruptcy is a greater threat than is that of robotization. If you just keep spending and producing very little for consumption or export bankruptcy is inevitable.

Other countries are becoming more competitive and are producing products more cheaply than we could ever hope to. The United States will have relatively cheap products from around the world but the budget deficit will grow by leaps and bounds.

International banks, corporations, and institutions have more political clout than that of any one nation. Wealth is being spread worldwide and the United States unfortunately is on a never ending slide in standard of living. A more likely scenario is that the United States will just become another third world nation with relatively few in a wealthy upper class and the vast majority will be in a relatively poor lower class as far as income is concerned.

Unless made in the United States has a rebirth and there are things which the world needs from the United States, besides food, energy, and military protection, the United States will continue its almost inevitable economic slide downwards on into the foreseeable future.

Much more could be written about automation such as bot content creators for almost everything we see and read, bot actors, bot musicians, bot teachers, bot nannies, bot sexual partners, drone deliveries, etc. No human field is safe from robotization or a symbiosis between humans and machines. How fast this trend will continue is debatable but this kind of change is inevitable to the detriment of future generations of average not exceptional humans. If you are part of the technological revolution then you will do just fine. If not, your life may seem rather meaningless without a job that you can derive satisfaction and purpose from.

WHEN MONEY POWER IS WIELDED OVER MORALITY, TRUST DISAPPEARS!!!

Big money has always been dominant in the stock market, big money used to be reliably powerful in politics before Trump’s election and will continue to be the prime motivating factor beyond his presidency, big money international corporations and banks are pushing leftist ideology and using it to discriminate against new workers who do not seem to fit the ideological mold. Big money technological companies like Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft are also censoring info based on big money media suggestions which are also heavily left wing biased. Big pharma and big agriculture is creating untrustworthy medication with disastrous side effects and bad nutrient deficient food. Big universities give an overabundance of degrees in job poor areas.

What is the result? The stock market is no longer a trusted viable long term investment and traditional stock brokers are having a hard time finding new gullible clients. No reputable politician has a chance to be elected into high office, especially the presidency. Small successful companies are soon bought up by conglomerates and competition and innovation is severely reduced. Internet technology companies are censoring controversial and conservative ideas making a single ruling party highly likely in the future where competition of ideas will be almost nonexistent. Medicine and non organic food is of very poor quality. A university degree no longer means a guaranteed job but probably a lifetime of paying back outrageously expensive student loans.

Due to fake information, fake news, and politically correct yet flawed ideology there is generally a distrust of the media, politicians, corporate leaders, big pharma, big agriculture, big education, and big celebrities.

Can trust in our large institutions and leadership ever be recovered? The answer is probably not for a long time since once trust disappears it takes as much as a new generation of censored leadership to regain some semblance of trust which now seems like a highly unlikely scenario. The powerful monied class will just get more powerful and corrupt with the passing of time and only a slow moral revival from the ground up can hope to revitalize the morality of the citizenry and then that of the leadership.

Yes, censorship will try to reestablish a sense of order from the chaos but bot censorship will be highly unjust and cynicism will prevail for a long time among the common humans in society. If alternative media is permitted to exist then it will become the source of a revitalized morality which will create a renewed sense of trust in what appears on the internet in certain selective places.

Globalism and globalist propaganda will reign supreme and minority voices will be suppressed in favor of a mind numbing propagandistic status quo. Future brainwashing will be on a scale heretofore unprecedented as a handful of companies will control all published info with a minimum of dissenting voices permitted.

Sanctuary cities, successful attempts at voter fraud such as illegal aliens being given the right to vote in some places and ballot stacking in others, convicted felons who have served their time have been given the right to vote in Florida, the law favors open borders, laws are legalizing pot, opioids, mind altering drugs, and heavy medication of over 30% of the population with psychiatric drugs are just some of the signs of further moral decay all creating more and more chaos or disruption with each passing year.

Only about 15 % of the population is metabolically healthy according to one report, a majority of the population is overweight, a vast majority are on medications of some sort, moral financially responsible family units are struggling to survive and those that still exist are often living from paycheck to paycheck with no emergency funds for backup emergencies. The United States is not only in a moral crisis but a financial one with deficit spending running out of control and getting worse with each passing year.

So is there any reason for some optimism? Yes, the population of developed nations is shrinking since not enough are born to replace those that die off. Robots and computer software is replacing many boring and repetitive jobs. Interactive audio visual internet education may supplement an archaic dysfunctional educational system. Smartphones means more internet communication and less social driving around. Self driving cars will replace the need for private transportation and waste less energy in the long duration since many goods will be delivered door to door more efficiently.

Sure, this means most will be living on some kind of welfare or welfare assistance and leading rather boring purposeless lives. But life has never been fair, especially for those with little or no money making ability.

Will there eventually be a revolt of the oppressed masses? Probably not because too many will be strung out on alcohol and drugs to really care much about the sad state of affairs around them. Existence for most will be the bare basics-food, alcohol, drugs, and sex. Not a pretty sight but a highly likely future reality for most judging by current trends on into the future. Can a nation survive under these conditions? Yes, but the government will have to be a tyrannical one which it is getting more tyrannical with each passing year.

Is a more optimistic future possible? Yes, I have written in detail about such an optimistic scenario in my books and encyclopedic blog but the question is -will enough humans read it all and how many will pick up the gauntlet and run with it, especially those hoping to be in future leadership positions?

The globalists are in charge and they probably know where they want the world to be twenty years from now and even further down the road. In the meantime, lead your life with integrity, morality, sincerity, dependability, competence, friendliness, courage, useful selfeducation, and contribute to causes that you believe in with some of your hard earned money. If you succeed in doing that then you will have made a small part of the world a better place to live in. May your struggle be as peaceful as possible. Best wishes.
