WHAT SHOULD BE PRIORITY #1 & #2 IN ANY NATION?

Priority number 1 in anyone’s life is one’s health so a healthy organic food supply is priority number 1.

Grow organic food and there will be less pollution from artificial chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones, antibiotics, unnatural fertilizers, and GMO’s with manufactured resistance to unnatural quantities of herbicides and pest resistance which also is often poisonous to pollinating bees.

Who is making some of the biggest profits? It is the pharmaceutical companies and medical profession making big profits at the declining health in the nation. Statistically cancer is on the rise throughout the population and drug companies are advertising artificial chemical pills with hair raising side effects which need more pills to treat the bad side effects. The medical profession seems more interested in prescription renewals and comeback customers than in actually curing what ails you.

For cash you can get an MRI for about $300 and if you have insurance the cost can be as high as $1200 or about 4 times more. Yes, medical insurance private or funded by the government is a big money making enterprise often at taxpayer’s expense. The difference in brand name versus generic medicine is often a markup of as high as 1000% or ten times more costly.

Statistically only about 10% of the population is pill free and many seniors are on 10 to 20 pills a day which is just accelerating their demise and sending medical costs through the roof.

I am reluctant to mention the opioid crisis but this is just symptomatic of a legal pill for every problem philosophy whether mental or physical. Mental illness, especially depression, is treated with legal feel good drugs rather than addressing the real problem which is a dysfunctional lifestyle with crappy food intake. Pop a pill and go back to your dysfunctional lifestyle and crappy food is not a cure but merely temporarily masks the symptoms which will get worse once the side effects of the pill kick in.

Priority number 2 is not so obvious to most but it is the conservation and even expansion of wilderness and wildlife because that will be the only safety net for healthy food when the irresponsible technological manipulation of the domestic food supply makes it poisonous for human consumption in the long and even short duration.

Nature knows best in the long duration and if you screw too much and too long  with nature with pollution, artificial insemination, toxic chemicals, and untested long term GMO’s, etc. then you pay the ultimate penalty which is unhealth and death.

Ask and start counting how many of your relatives, friends, and acquaintances have some health issues? The answer to this question once you start counting is shocking to most.

So start eating as much organic food as possible, get some exercise, sleep well and contribute to an international and national conservation organization. It may not do much to improve the world but you will feel healthier and you will live with a clear conscience knowing that you tried to save wilderness for future generations who may just need it desperately to survive.

CONSERVATIVES ARE ENVIRONMENTALISTS TOO!!!

You may not believe that climate change is human made but a result of changes in the sun’s activity or cycles but it is undeniable that many conservatives believe in sustainable living, minimizing environmental pollution from unnatural toxic chemicals to a minimum, and protecting wilderness and endangered species as I believe should be done.

The EPA has done a terrible job in making up new laws to follow rather than enforcing existing ones and has saved about two endangered species but many more now appear on the list of endangered species.

A rethinking of environmental enforcement is necessary which eliminates the corrupted bureaucracy and sets forth more responsibility to the states where in some states solar and wind energy is just not a viable alternative. Government subsidies to big oil and wind and solar should be terminated and the decision making be left to individual states who can implement more specific and efficient energy policies.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PROTECTION+

images (2)

Protection: n. defending from potential harm

Most of us want to be protected from pollution, from criminals, from crazy humans, from fraudulent contracts, from unsafe surroundings or goods, high taxes or fees, and some want privacy protection. The government can play a role in minimizing pollution, apprehending criminals, reducing fraud, and instituting safety standards for buildings and goods so some taxation and some fees are necessary.

Privacy also translates into privacy for criminals so the issue has still not been settled and probably never will be settled to the satisfaction of everyone.

There is also personal responsibility or protecting yourself and that means taking care of your offspring and family, protecting yourself from criminals and crazy humans in emergency situations, living cautiously and responsibly to avoid accidents and ill health, contributing to causes that you believe in, and voting even though that frequently seems an excursion into futility.

An entitlement attitude is increasing with many feeling that government should take care of many of your problems and disasters in life. An irresponsible nanny state is the result with many middle class citizens feeling that they slavishly have to work to support irresponsible welfare types.

Protection from human stupidity, deception, immorality, and irresponsibility is not possible with laws alone so responsible behavior should be promoted by the financial and educational system before the human stupidity, deception, immorality, and irresponsibility gets totally out of control and we largely have a nation filled with dependent adult children supported by the few remaining responsible working taxpayers.

We need protection from an unjust educational and welfare system and radical change is necessary. If you want details on what should be done then read my evergreen truth books EDUCATION REFORM and CHANGES IN WELFARE LAWS.

Finally wilderness needs protection because it will be the only safety net or source of a healthy food supply when the irresponsible use of technology makes food and drink unhealthy for human consumption.

You are what you eat and drink so I am surprised that the United States short duration profit hungry corporations are still propagandizing and promoting cheap overly processed overly chemically polluted food in restaurants and supermarkets.

Not only is human health in jeopardy but drug companies and the medical establishment are making a killing profiting and masking the symptoms of bad health and not doing much curing in the process. The basic solution is quality food for as many as possible and not prescribing more and “better” pills and drugs.

Who is going to protect us from money hungry food corporations, drug companies, and the medical profession? We can start by not taxing organic food growers, organic wholesalers, and organic restaurants!!!!!!

MORE EVIDENCE GMO’S ARE DESTROYING THE ENVIRONMENT AND HUMAN HEALTH!!!

No-GMO2

More evidence that GMO’s are destroying the environment with dead zones and too much excess nitrogen. They are ruining small farmers and human health in the process with unnecessary high levels of herbicides and pesticides needed for monoculture massive farming.

A switch to organic farming is vital for the health of future generations and the environment!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT PROFIT

Increase Profit

Profit: n. money remaining when expenses are subtracted from income

Profiting encourages efficiency but it puts emphasis on quantity of money and not on the qualitative use of money.

The biodiversity and quality of our food supply has been ruined by pursuing profit with factory farming, monoculture agriculture, overly processed foods with artificial additives, and trying to monopolize the food with patented unhealthy GMO’s.

In the short duration agriculture is making a good profit but in the long duration the emphasis on profit and not the quality and diversity of the food is creating a very unhealthy food supply.

Making a profit on invested money in the short duration is corrupting the money management with risky investments in the form of derivatives and manipulation of the stock market prices which are not based on fundamentals but on pure gambling speculation. Big money is gambling or radically speculating with money with government guarantees and the public is paying for speculative failures with incredible budget deficits in the trillions of dollars.

Pure capitalism with an emphasis on making as much money as possible in the shortest amount of time is being applied to growing food and managing money. This shortsighted profit motive is resulting in unhealthy food and a threatening financial collapse in the long duration.

Manufacturing products in the cheapest way possible and not sustainably is also generating more pollution than necessary. China is a perfect example of excessive pollution of the environment due to an over emphasis on short duration profit over the health of the environment.

The Chinese economic miracle is paying a high price by polluting the environment for future generations who will have to live with the pollution and their long duration health will suffer.

The service industries are the one area where profit is essential because if you remove the profit incentive and competition then the workforce will become terribly inefficient and not give the most work output for the dollars invested.

Businesses with unions are less profitable than businesses without them and negotiated overly generous pension plans are bankrupting the businesses and organizations which have to pay for them. Government inefficiency is legend and a perfect example of what can happen when profit does not play an important role in keeping the organization efficient.

Producing goods in great quantity with the profit motive is resulting in a sacrifice of quality where it really counts, quality food. Making more money with big money not tied to tangible assets is resulting in a corrupt financial management system which is threatened by bankruptcy in the long duration.

Planning for the future with a secure money supply where the value of money remains constant and encourages long duration planning and savings for emergencies and retirement is essential for a just economy. Remove an incentive to save some money for the future or a rainy day and individual finances, corporate finances, and national finances become dysfunctional and teeter on the verge of bankruptcy. The use of money or the financial system must be disciplined so that it encourages long duration planning and not just short duration planning.

Too much emphasis on short duration money profits is resulting in a world or money not tied to reality and if reality is denied then disaster is just around the corner.

The greatest danger is the destruction of wilderness or biodiversity which is the only safety net for civilization when the domestic food supply becomes too unhealthy to consume.

THE TRUTH ABOUT POLLUTION

pollution-spix-lg

The quantity of the pollution and the type of pollution should be considered when logically discussing pollution.

Some chemicals are only pollutants because there is too much of them around and they become threats to your health. An example is carbon dioxide which is a very reactive chemical. It does not pollute the environment because it quickly unites chemically with other substances and becomes inert or harmless. However, if you get too much of it or too great a QUANTITY into your lungs then you suffocate to death.

Government permitted pollution levels are frequently in parts per million in the air and parts per billion in the water and soil and this refers to the “safe” quantity limits of the pollutant.

Artificially created chemicals or drugs can be harmful to your health if they are not found somewhere in nature. The safest drugs are drugs extracted from plants or animals or those which are found in plants or animals and have been mass produced in the lab or factory. Because they are natural or part of nature there should be minimal fear but of course they can be unhealthy to your system if taken for too long or in too great a quantity. This is a reason why there are dosage limits and time limits for taking them.

If you are taking drugs not found in nature but those which are only produced artificially in the lab then you run the risk of ruining your metabolism in an unhealthy way either immediately with severe side effects or they can ruin your health in the long duration.

Artificial pesticides and herbicides made with chemicals not found in nature or those which don’t degrade in the soil or your stomach and intestines into harmless substances are true pollutants which should be outlawed.

GMO’s with bacterial genes inserted into them are unnatural pollutants with almost guaranteed long duration harm to your health. These kinds of genetically modified organisms can be successfully used in the mass production biologically of desired substances but they should never be a part of the food chain. Eating them will affect your present metabolism in a harmful way and even harm the genes of future generations of humans.

CONCLUSION:

Before you get paranoid about pollution remember to eat as much certified organic food as possible and if you occasionally ingest pesticides, herbicides, or meat gotten from growth hormones or antibiotics added to animal feed then you won’t immediately die and the effect on your long duration health and metabolism will be minimal.

Why are more humans dying of cancer than a hundred years ago? It doesn’t take much common sense to realize that the only significant thing which has changed is a polluted food and drink supply and the artificial prescription drugs which you are on!!!!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT INEFFICIENCY

Savannah-Sunset_inefficiency

Nature is the standard of efficiency. It communicates efficiently and uses natural resources efficiently with no pollution while selecting the healthiest, smartest, and efficient to reproduce future generations.

 

Humans on the other hand have historically been inefficient communicators and have been rather unsuccessful is allocating the most resources to the healthiest, smartest, and efficient humans and having them reproduce in greater numbers for the benefit of future generations.

 

Technology is fast changing inefficiency in society but there are places where short term efficiency alone should not be the standard for production. We all need healthy biodiverse food to be healthy and efficient agribusiness factory techniques which emphasize quantity and not quality production are not producing the healthiest food possible to the detriment of future human health. Efficient manufacturing of products is also not as important as maintaining efficient minimal pollution levels which threaten the health of future generations of humans and wildlife if the pollution levels are too high.

 

We do not need polluting efficiency in the short duration but sustainable efficiency in the long duration which means quality certified biodiverse organic food and minimum pollution factories like the BMW plant in Chattanooga Tennessee.

 

Our outdated educational system is still mostly teaching liberal arts which is a job poor field. Gross inefficiency exists in traditional class settings of 20 or more students per teacher. The system is very inefficient and does not utilize each student’s abilities to their fullest.

 

Teaching moral behavior in a class setting is important in elementary school where students should be encouraged to interact with each other in a civilized way. However, once you are thirteen years old with a moral foundation each student should be able to advance at their own pace and graduate to the next level of expertise based on achievement level and not grade or age level.

 

Yes, same age students can be in a classroom but each one would be at his or her highest level of achievement in a subject. The result is that many hard working talented students would be graduating high school much before the age of 18 and have full voting rights before the age of 18. My evergreen truth book EDUCATION REFORM has the details of how teaching can be revolutionized to teach for the technological 21st century.

 

It has been scientifically shown that students retain only about 10% of what they read after about 2 weeks but retain as much as 70% if they interact with the material by speaking also. This fact alone means that interactive audio visual computer instruction is the most efficient way to teach students in most subjects and classrooms will have to have headphones and microphones so that the students can interact with the subject material fully and learn at the fastest pace possible. Yes, there will be lab time during which students can interact with physical objects also to further advance their knowledge of reality by tactile stimulation because motor memory is very important in connecting students with the real world as much as is needed.

 

Most literature, history, and philosophy is an excursion into useless mythological verbose information which will not be used again in life and should not be boring sources of vague information to be memorized for students in the 21st century. You should not be killing time in school but should be efficiently learning useful skills for a good job in society.

 

We need quality education for everyone and not mediocre quantity education for the common human in society!!!!!! WHAT you teach is far more important than HOW MUCH you teach. HOW MUCH useless information we have been and are teaching students is a crime which can no longer be justified and should not continue on into the future.

MOST SUSTAINABLE NON-POLLUTING BUSINESSES SHOULD NOT BE TAXED AT ALL!!!!!!

download

The power to tax is the power to destroy or severely handicap and non-polluting businesses should be encouraged to thrive without taxation. There are thousands of non-polluting businesses which would qualify but the most basic and important is food. 

Unfortunately this also includes gambling establishments so it would be unwise to exclude gambling establishments from taxation since they cause so much financial stress and human ruin which creates a financial burden on society.

Rather we should start with the most important commodity food, and encourage certified organic food growers and organic food businesses to thrive without taxation.

Certified organic food should be licensed with severe penalties for not growing the food organically. Certified organic food should mean growing without polluting artificial pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides, without artificial fertilizers and no GMOs. For certified organic animals it means no antibiotics, growth hormones, or non organic feed. If the fertilizers are organic such as manure from organic domesticated animals or organic plant sources such as seaweed or kelp or organic ocean fish and life then that is fine.

Certified organic wholesalers, supermarkets, organic fast food, and organic restaurants would also not be taxed.

Polluting agribusiness will continue to be taxed and will consider this unfair or unjust treatment but if they want just treatment then they will all eventually have to switch to sustainable non-polluting certified organic farming.

What is the payoff? A healthier more diverse food supply and a healthier human population in the long duration!!!!!!

Food and pure water should be priority number one in every human’s life. The sooner we start promoting a certified organic food culture nationally and internationally, the healthier will be the society, at least physically if not mentally.

4 SHOCKING FACTS WHCH SUGGEST A RADICAL NEED FOR CHANGES IN THIS NATION AND WORLD

Biodiversity-in-focues-Am-006

THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IS DYSFUNCTIONAL:

Many and soon most students go or will go through 18 years of brainwashing mindless education and only qualify to work in the simplest of jobs such as a cashier or fast food worker which a robot or computer software can do better.

A liberal arts college education is no longer a guarantee of a good paying job which can support a family. We urgently need CHANGES IN WELFARE LAWS to help the unemployed and destitute armies of humans which will be a fact of life in the 21st century technological era. EDUCATION REFORM which is another of my evergreen books is what we urgently need.

 

THE WORLD ECONOMY HAS TOO MUCH DEBT:

Young adults are motivated to go into debt with school loans and credit cards. With an encouraged social debt philosophy the result is that corporations, many businesses, nations and the entire world economy is on the brink of bankruptcy from too much debt. Capital reserves or a savings account, like a fat reserve in animals for emergency absence of food, which comes in handy for life’s emergencies in society is non existent for many. It is obvious that we have an impractical world financial system which needs radical change and counterfeiting money to pay off tremendous debt will just not work in the long duration.

THE COURT SYSTEM IS BECOMING UNTRUSTWORTHY:

Our court systems are overloaded with criminals and violators and court trials are frequently unjust because the plaintiffs can’t be trusted and the defendants can’t be trusted and the witnesses and “professional” testimony by experts can’t be trusted since so few of them have very good social reputations which is only possible by telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. There is no secular moral code being taught young impressionable minds in elementary school and the result is a relativistic situation ethics environment where lying is justified as long as you can get away with it and it benefits you personally. Our legal system is speedily becoming an untrustworthy sham which can only be cured by teaching the young a 6 point secular moral code in school. Read JUSTICE.

BIODIVERSITY IS BEING SPEEDILY DESTROYED: 

An unjust bias towards economic growth rather than efficiency, financial stability, and limitation in size for national economies is a cancerous growth, using up too much natural resources, polluting the environment too speedily, and destroying biodiversity. The cancerous economies are systematically intruding wilderness real estate and causing a suicidal destruction of a potential healthy gene pool which future civilization will need to correct the present unhealthy domesticated plants and animals which are being consumed for food. The faster the economies of the world grow the faster is biodiversity being destroyed and human civilization will perish sooner rather than later.
