MORAL UNCERTAINTY AND THE COLLAPSE OF TRUST!!!

Historically a uniting morality and tradition kept society functioning at tolerable levels. Most felt that if you didn’t lie, didn’t steal, and worked hard and you were a male then you would be able to make enough money to afford a family lifestyle and have safe sex. The roles of males and females were relatively well defined and there was some certainty in knowing that if you made enough money then your offspring and household chores would be taken care of to a large extent.

Today male income is not sufficient to support a family in many instances unless you have a good paying career or profession, and even here there is no longer the certainty that you will have a job with the same company on into the indefinite future. Many households have working mothers and fathers whose income is not enough to support nannies or tutors for properly taking care of offspring and the result is many dysfunctional families and a high rate of divorce which is further caused by hedonistic or promiscuous social lifestyles which are tolerated and even promoted in society at large.

Many males fear commitment because they realize the great financial responsibility of a family and many can get sex without having to commit. Promiscuous lifestyles are an additional reason why adultery is rampant in marriage and the second most important reason for divorce.

The net result is that heterosexual traditions are being decimated since fewer and fewer offspring have had good heterosexual role models to imitate and the result is usually chaotic and unstable marital relationships if they are attempted. The tragic modern dilemma is -how do you indoctrinate good family values in humans who come from dysfunctional families to begin with. Book learning and marriage counseling is definitely not a viable solution for many failing marriages.

Not so obvious is the fundamental fact that integrity or honesty and morality, trustworthiness, dependability, commitment, good communication skills, and competence is essential to succeed in marriage and in society in general. Lie, commit adultery, promise and don’t follow through, argue too much, procrastinate and make excuses for your incompetence and you will not only fail in relationships but also fail in society. If you don’t lead a moral life not only will your family be ruined but society will not respect you and you will be ostracized from wholesome relationships. Lie or behave immorally and potentially trusting relationships break down and you will be leading a miserable lonely existence.

Wealth acquired morally is respected. Wealth acquired immorally may be respected as long as humans are deceived into thinking it was acquired morally but the respect turns to revulsion once the truth surfaces. The money corrupted political and establishment media including the entertainment media were deceptively misleading the gullible public with propaganda designed to keep the public ignorant of the fact that they were kept in contempt by the elite some of whom led immoral lives in private.

Fake polls, fake news, and fake public personas revealed the moral corruption of the elite leadership from which it is going to have a hard if not impossible task to recover from because they are no longer trusted by the general public. The establishment is no longer respected and admired by the public and I don’t see the situation improving until there is a new moral enlightenment in society which will address the problem from the ground up.

Lie too often and respect is no longer possible. Where will this moral leadership come from? Yes, it will have to come from the ground up but those in power will unfortunately have to impose the leadership from the top down and initiate it from the ground up. Is this even possible without a moral renaissance? Who will lead the charge? It will definitely have to be more than just one human.

Most important young impressionable minds must be indoctrinated with a secular moral code with worldwide applicability. It 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.

Real life examples of the application of this moral code have to be given and I have outlined the details in my writing for the benefit of future generations. By the age of about 13 most humans should be able to impulsively know what is right or wrong or what is morally right or wrong. Fail at this most important indoctrination and trusting relationships between humans will cease to exist in great enough quantity to permit a relatively peaceful secure society to exist.

13 THINGS EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT HUMANS TRY NOT TO DO!!!

download (1)

They don’t always assume that what they think and feel is a true reflection of what is really going on in someone’s mind or the real reason behind someone’s behavior. They realize that sometimes their assumptions about others may be flawed or inaccurate and further probing or experience may be necessary to discover the truth about a human.

They don’t think external influences directly control their emotions. They understand that their emotional state is their responsibility and under their control and don’t think the responsibility for the emotional state is an external influence or its control is exerted by external influences.

They don’t think that they can control and guarantee future happiness. They understand that what they think will make them happy in the future is a projection of what has made them happy in the past. If it is some future new projection or goal to be achieved then they realize that there is no guarantee that achieving it will really make them happy and that they won’t really know how happy until it actually happens.

They don’t think that being fearful is necessarily being on the wrong path because life is sometimes risky and repeated failure or new failure is always a possibility when trying something new. They risk doing new things despite a little fear which they feel might be a good thing and something they would like and perhaps even love.

They don’t think that sustained happiness is possible. They know that a sustained state of happiness is an illusion and they are not trying to reach that impossible delusional state but live day to day and enjoy whatever happiness comes with it.

They don’t easily change their views. They recognize that others sometimes try to change their thoughts, beliefs, and opinions but even though they have an open mind they are not gullible, are introspective, and don’t automatically reject the validity of their own viewpoints.

They don’t freely express all their emotions in public. Few but not all their intense emotions are expressed in public. Any intense anger or hatred are reserved to be more honestly, freely, and intimately expressed in a circle of trustworthy family and close friends.

They don’t think that any one emotion is permanent. They understand and are aware that shitty or very bad feelings are transient and eventually subside so they develop composure, control, or stamina which prevents the intense feelings from frequently being expressed in public.

They don’t confuse bad emotions or a bad day of emotional turmoil with a bad life in general and don’t become chronic complainers if they have more than their share of bad days or bad circumstances.

They don’t express empathy and sympathy all the time. They try to express empathy or sympathy where appropriate for humans suffering from bad circumstances or emotional turmoil but realize that some humans overly complain just to get attention so an expression of empathy or sympathy is not always forthcoming if not deserved.

They don’t overwhelm humans with fake exaggerated praise and compliments but express approval with sincere honest remarks and appropriate enthusiasm.

They don’t gullibly believe charismatic con artists manipulating emotions with information, goods, and services which sound too good to be true, especially get rich schemes and miracle cures.

They don’t believe emotional intelligence is inborn but believe it is something acquired with human experience. In general they assume a more mature or older human with much human interaction has more emotional intelligence than a young inexperienced adult with little social exposure.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SINCERITY***

images (1)

Sincerity: n. an honest expression(s) which (is not brazenly and/or demeaningly communicated and/or is tactfully honest)

Being sincere is being honest but not in a bold and shameless way which will make others feel bad about an honest comment made about their looks and/or bad behavior. 

You can have honest criticism but it should not be presented in a scolding, brutal, or demeaning way which embarrasses or decreases the dignity or respect of the human being criticized.

Being tactfully honest is what sincerity is all about. Knowing social etiquette in all its varied forms is helpful in knowing what true sincerity is so you can maintain a friendly respected relationship without personal offense becoming part of the communication.

THE TRUTH ABOUT REPUTATION

quote-it-takes-20-years-to-build-a-reputation-and-five-minutes-to-ruin-it-if-you-think-about-that-warren-buffett-26787

Reputation: n. the degree of respect and/or disrespect possessed which is an appraisal of the degree of respect and/or disrespect made by a subset(s) of humans

Not many of us have an excellent reputation because frankly few know that you need to be honest, sincere, dependable, trustworthy, caring, and competent to have an excellent reputation. If you sometimes lie, are not dependable, and are not competent in your job or as a parent then you may get by but you will definitely not have an excellent reputation.

If you are in a leadership position then reputation is very important. If you live a rather isolated life and don’t interact with humans that frequently then your reputation may not seem that important and you will get by as long as you show up for work and don’t screw up on the job.

Reputation may not seem important to you until you develop a bad reputation and then you realize how hard it is to get it back since almost no one trusts you anymore and generally does not want to have anything to do with you.

If your reputation is very bad then your only recourse is to move to another location in the country. You can begin with a fresh new start trying to develop a good reputation which will unfortunately take some time because a good reputation is earned over a relatively long time of demonstrating trustworthiness. A good reputation is not something which you automatically get by just asking for it.

Getting a good reputation back after losing it is almost impossible so the best advice is don’t lose it in the first place and behave appropriately.

18 IMPORTANT TRUISMS ABOUT HUMANS!!!

0_b2aca_ca91ece8_XL (1)

Give sincere earned compliments and praise and a close friendship grows in strength, the potential for new close friendships grows, and your good reputation grows with acquaintances too.

Exaggerated compliments and praise may con the gullible and insecure humans in the short duration but the honest human will consider you an insincere dishonest BS artist.

A good reputation which has taken years to create can be destroyed almost overnight with intentional lies, intentional deceptions, incompetence, or fraud.

Name calling, put downs, ridicule, and accusations of incompetence frequently stereotype a human unjustly causing hurt feelings and a sense that one has been attacked verbally which causes that human to think less highly of you and it damages your reputation.

Hate, resentment, jealousy, revenge, anger, and fear can make your life miserable if you obsess yourself with those emotions. If you think that other humans are your enemy then your venom will spill over into your everyday life and affect it adversely. If you can ignore or avoid bad humans then do so but don’t let their misdeeds linger in your mind for too long. If you are the victim of abuse then make plans to escape it and if you are abused on the job then make plans for a better job.

A human who listens much, accurately reads your emotions, and responds briefly with appropriate comments will appear smarter and more likeable than one who talks much about themselves and almost always tries to impose their opinions on you or show you that their point of view is always right.

Interruptions are rude unless there is an emergency or the speaker is boring you to death and can’t seem to stop talking or is doing nothing of importance.

If you don’t understand what is being communicated or what is going on or aren’t sure of an emotional state then ask some appropriate questions before reacting impulsively and frequently wrongly to a confusing situation.

When in doubt then ask more relevant questions or gather more useful information about the subject matter or situation.

If logically thinking about a problem does not seem to lead to a response which must be made quickly or urgently, then go with your impulsive feelings if you have any at the time.

If you have nothing good to say about a human then don’t say anything at all unless that human is a threat to your profit margin or someone else’s profit margin.

The best friends are honest, sincere, dependable, caring, and trustworthy. Settle for less in friendships and chances are that they will only be friends when things are going good in your life but will be unreliable disappointments when you need some help in tough times.

If you are verbally attacked for doing or saying something first make sure that you don’t deserve to be attacked for doing or saying something inappropriate or wrong. Apologize if you are at fault and only defend yourself if you are not to blame for the criticism.

Charismatic leaders are confident, honest, sincere, dependable, trustworthy, competent, caring humans. For most of us being honest, sincere, dependable, and trustworthy will go a long way at bonding successfully with others. You can always work at being more caring and competent later which will increase your confidence and personal charisma.

Identifying your bad habits is the first step towards self-improvement but what you must realize is that without personal determination, persistence, and perseverance or self-control your chances of eliminating or greatly reducing the bad habits is highly unlikely. Getting support or motivation from others to change your bad habits can sometimes greatly help if you are willing to listen to them and take their advice.

Success in life largely depends on setting small and large realistic goals which you avidly pursue with unrelenting persistence despite many setbacks. The smart human thinks about and learns from failure and frequently makes new plans or different ways of getting to the same realistic goal(s).

Stuck in an unsatisfying lifestyle? Learn new useful skills, new useful knowledge, and talk to interesting humans who don’t seem to be unsatisfied and maybe they will offer you some useful advice on how to get out of your unsatisfying lifestyle.

Create a valuable product(s) with friendly service and you will have many customers. Create a paid membership with discounts and free services and you will create many loyal customers who shop more at your establishment.

Finally if you feel abused or oppressed by the system of government then share your views with as many humans as you can openly or secretly with like minded humans if your views are being censored by the government.

THE TRUTH ABOUT ADVICE

advice_for_web_6650666_lrg

 Advice: n. giving an opinion(s) and/or fact(s) about a problem and/or circumstance frequently by someone knowledgeable and/or authoritative

You can get advice from a “professional”, a boss, spouse, offspring, family, close friend, an acquaintance, and celebrity. How do you know who to trust for good advice and on what issues?

The probability that you will get good advice is greater if the source has a reputation of being honest, sincere, dependable, trustworthy, and competent and has been so for a relatively long duration.

If you don’t have a dysfunctional family life and trust your moral spouse and have close trusting relationships with moral family members or close friends then these are the humans whom you can consult for relationship advice the most. Chances are they will be honest with you and try to tell it like it is from their point of view and none of them should be from dysfunctional families themselves.

In this growing hedonistic culture with armies of dysfunctional human relationships even professional therapists are frequently not a good source of relationship advice because many have a myopic philosophy of -do what you like and with whomever you like and come back for more advice at a fee.

Very few will be honestly blunt with you and insist that moral behavior is paramount in any great relationship and that requires honesty, sincerity, dependability, trustworthiness, empathy, emotional support, and an ability to communicate well with a minimum of confrontations, arguments, intense criticisms, and name calling.

Professional advice is also sometimes suspect these days because many doctors are dispensing artificial sometimes addictive drugs with serious metabolic side effects which you shouldn’t be taking. Instead they should more frequently be recommending changing to a healthier lifestyle of eating more organic food, getting moderate exercise, and letting the body heal naturally which sometimes may take from a week to a month. Quick fix pills are frequently prescribed to mask symptoms and not cure the cause of the problem.

Many top lawyers represent the wealthy and the relatively inexperienced ones representing the poor are frequently looking for deep pockets to sue.

Stock brokers, media stock advisers, mutual funds, hedge funds can’t be trusted in the long duration because of a volatile rigged stock market favoring big money investments.

Politicians can’t be trusted to eliminate special interest laws favoring big money interests and balance the budget the way the rest of us are expected to do.

Advertisers of many beauty products, weight loss systems, food supplements, energy and mental boosters all deceive the public into thinking instant results are possible when in fact they are miracle promises or advice not based on any verifiable facts for large groups or populations of humans.

Whether it is an individual or organization, if you want decent advise then go with the trustworthy ones who have been trustworthy for a relatively long duration for best results. There is no guarantee of good advice in life because even the trustworthy ones sometimes believe in the deceptions, myths, and lies of others who are in fact not deserving of trust.

THE TRUTH ABOUT ADMIRATION

admiring man

Admiration: n. respecting and being attracted to and feeling a relatively large intensity pleasure because of (good and/or moral behavior) and/or professional excellence

We generally admire competent professionals who know what they are doing and provide us with a needed service. We also admire humans who are honest, sincere, dependable, trustworthy, friendly, considerate, and interesting to talk to.

If you want to be admired in life by others then you have to acquire the knowledge and skills to have a successful career or become a leader with excellent social skills and some expertise in the field that you are a leader of. As an admired leader who is respected by others you will have to be highly moral with a very good memory for names and that means not lying, stealing, or being adulterous if married.

Yes, some wealthy individuals are admired for their wealth alone and they may have done some pretty immoral things along the way to acquiring that wealth. However, chances are that you would not want to have them as a personal friend because you may not respect them for their immorality. You may admire their wealth but not respect them as good humans.

Tyrants are admired by many humans because they are powerful humans and they in some way usually benefit from the exercise of that power. Historically conquering tyrants were both feared and respected for their ability to expand territory through violent means. Many more fear opposing tyrants with negative comments or actions because of a fear of incarceration or even death.

A moral leadership is respected and admired by its citizens and immoral leadership corrupted by power and money is not truly respected by humans and frequently leads to tyranny which is the only solution to the chaos created by immorality.

5 WAYS TO MAKE YOUR RELATIONSHIP CLOSER AND BETTER

001211_0593_0082_lslp

The major key to a closer and better relationship is the ability to build a trusting relationship and always telling the truth is the fastest way of getting there. Always being honest and sincere is the key but there are 4 other things to also consider and do.

Stop silly arguments:

You will not always have the same opinion on things and will make mistakes along the way no matter how perfect you think you are or would like to be.

Accepting another’s opinion even if you disagree with it is being open minded and understanding that there may be another way of looking at the world in some or many cases. Instead of attacking an opinion which you disagree with and trying to force your opinion on another the proper approach is to discuss the opinion calmly and offering any counter evidence or facts which may disprove the opinion and support the one which you have.

Realize that when it comes to politics you can even disagree on general principles and still mostly agree on how to run family life in more agreeable detail. Realize that personal tastes and opinions which minimally affect family life are different and need agreement and acceptance and not argument.

Learn to apologize if you realize you have made a mistake or have attacked a relatively insignificant opinion in a highly emotional argumentative way. Making mistakes and relatively illogical emotional outburst are common in most relationships and a sincere apology is the best solution to the problems which it creates. An apology permits you to be much more open and not secretive in future communications.

Eliminate jealousy:

If you are not lying to each other and trust each other then jealousy should not even enter the picture. If one or both of you lie then jealousy can become a serious problem which refuses to go away. If one of you is a habitual liar then it is best to end the relationship sooner rather than later because it will inevitably destroy the relationship, frequently in a jealous rage.

Learn to communicate:

A strong relationship means that you can talk about any subject matter and neither partner has to feel defensive and keep opinions and facts a secret for fear that they will be emotionally attacked and not discussed in a rational calm way. If you are afraid that you will be shouted at for revealing a controversial opinion or fact then it is a question of a lack of trust which should be addressed. The more you conceal the greater will be the explosion once the truth or secret surfaces and the explosion can be avoided by constant revelations or truthful communications which hide nothing but discuss anything.

Pay attention or listen:

Listening to your partner and opening up takes much work and selfcontrol, especially if it is a frequently repeated topic which is beginning to bore you because it sounds like nagging.  Controlling personalities will frequently nag much if they don’t get their way so be prepared to live with a nag. If it gets too annoying tell them that it is hurting the pleasure that communicating should be and that you may not communicate as much in the future if it persists to the detriment of both of you.

CONCLUSION:

Always being vulnerable to attack by always telling the truth and revealing your inner feelings and opinions takes courage but without such an honest strategy a trusting relationship will not develop and there won’t be a close and better relationship which is needed for a long duration marriage.
