MORE AND MORE AMERICANS ARE ABANDONING THE POLITICAL CHAOS AND BS OF THE ESTABLISHMENT MEDIA!!!

Historically the establishment media had some clout when it published current events, political opinions, and tried to convince a mass audience to think a certain way. Today in an atmosphere of constant fake news, fake opinions, emotionally charged sound bytes, deceptions, and remorseless lying many Americans have had enough and are tuning out of the political BS and finding better things to do elsewhere with their time.

An obsession with poll taking and pontificating based on them is a perfect example of the ineffectiveness of the establishment media to sway public opinion in a major way. Opinion polls are basically the same as they were three years ago and the media has changed few opinions while their reputations have continued a downward spiral with fewer and fewer humans trusting the media for unbiased reportage.

Many have turned to cellphone apps, social media, search engines, and YouTube like videos and podcasts as sources for information and entertainment. Newspapers and traditional cable channels are rapidly losing viewership since reading lengthy articles and viewing lengthy programs is going out of style in an age of instant gratification demanded by almost everyone.

Yes, the tabloid press with its emotionally charged BS is in a chaotic state from which it will probably never escape since its reputation is in the toilet with just fringe group fanatics still genuinely interested in the crap. Will there ever be a national consensus on important national issues again? Probably not, but the new internet technology companies will probably try very hard to push their globalist political ideology and try to give it mass appeal.

I personally don’t mind the political chaos because out of it will emerge rule by the technological elite with a corresponding relatively rational ideology which may or may not trample individual social rights in favor of collectivist social dogma. Yes, a more tyrannical government may emerge but without a secular moral or ethical reawakening stressing individual rights and responsible behavior, the prospects for more legal intervention in our lives or more oppression is a more likely outcome.

In the near future, executive power may be wielded more often because frankly the establishment Republicans and Democrats are interested in maintaining the status quo which basically means doing nothing unless it seems to be a national emergency. Yes, the rich are in control of the government and included are the international rich. The future executive branch will probably have to act independent of a deadlocked congress to promote action in times of national crises. Unfortunately more tyranny will result and especially so and more quickly if the Democrats with their socialist globalist agenda emerge or come to power.

Conclusion: The establishment media sucks but better though perhaps more tyrannical times are ahead of us thanks to the technological elite.

MANAGERIAL MISTAKES!!!

Not fulfilling promises and lying on occasion:

Trust is the most important bonding factor in a relationship and this applies to business relationships also. Break promises or lie and respect for you starts to disappear since employees can no longer depend on your word being true which causes mistrust and hostile confusion and uncertainty in the workplace.

Perhaps not giving a promised pay raise or job promotion will most negatively affect the morale of an employee. There are other less blatant forms of promises made and not kept which will break the trusting bond with employees. Perhaps the best advice to give a manager is to not be pretentious but be honest and straightforward in all your dealings with employees so that they never have to doubt what your true intentions and demands are on the job.

Criticizing employees publicly:

Embarrassment, shame, and bad feelings against the manager may follow the criticizing of an employee in public. Almost everyone wants to feel safe with reputation intact if they make a mistake or screw up in some way on the job and don’t want this to become public knowledge if at all possible. The right time and place to do any chastising is in private between manager and employee only.

Excessive invasion of privacy, especially if details are announced publicly or to other employees:

Sometimes private activities affect business relationships or activities but the manager should be cautious about probing too deeply into the private lives of employees and even worse gossiping about the juicy details. Almost everyone is interested in maintaining a good reputation in the workplace and intimate private details which reflect a bad circumstance or situation should remain largely private and go no further than the manager and employee concerned. Most employee private secrets which don’t adversely affect the business should be respected and definitely not gossiped about if found out.

Withholding motivation or positive feedback:

A manager should do more than just try to help out if problems arise. A good manager will offer words of encouragement for a job well done so that the employee feels that they are being noticed and appreciated on the job on a regular basis.

Micromanaging employees:

Micromanaging indirectly implies that you don’t trust an employee to do a good job on their own. While micromanaging a new employee who is learning the ropes is sometimes a good thing, micromanaging a competent employee with unnecessary interruptions can adversely affect productivity. Interrupting when the work seems to be going too slow or noticing that too many mistakes are being made on the job is not micromanagement but a valid time to see if you can speed things up or eliminate apparent roadblocks to the work. Micromanaging is done primarily because you don’t trust an employee to do a competent job mostly on their own or you want to take credit for the job done yourself.

Not getting feedback from employees:

A domineering manager may just be inclined to give out orders and not ask for much feedback from employees. Largely isolated and minimally interested employees may be the result if they are almost never asked to participate in the decision making processes. Feedback from employees is especially important in a team effort which needs good coordination and participation by more than one employee. Happy and productive employees should be the goal of almost all businesses. Good feedback will determine how happy and productive they are and what things could possibly be done to make them happier and more productive.

Failing to appropriately discipline:

It is bad policy to ignore bad job performance and bad behavior which if left unresolved can lead to a sharp drop in employee morale and some if not many looking for jobs elsewhere. Before disciplining an employee it is best to have a private conversation and determine what is the cause of bad performance or bad behavior on the part of an employee. Sometimes all that is needed is determining the cause, pinpointing concrete steps to resolve the issue, and finally a promise from the employee to improve in the near future with concrete behavior modifications.

Sometimes giving the employee less responsibility, taking away a privilege such as parking rights, or threatening with firing are what appropriate discipline looks like. If the bad performance or bad behavior persists then make sure that you document it all and finally fire the offending employee before the rest of the staff is negatively impacted to the point of no return.

Not coaching or mentoring employees:

Some employees want to advance to higher positions in the business and don’t want to stagnate in a job at the same level for years. It is important for a manager to pinpoint those who want to be upwardly mobile and give them the appropriate coaching, mentoring, and delegation of some authority to keep them motivated. Yes, you run the risk of someone taking over your job in the future but a great manager will him or herself want to move up the business ladder to even higher positions of authority. Having a willing and able replacement ready to go may be a very important factor in getting a personal job advancement yourself.

Not cultivating interpersonal relationships:

Emotional IQ is very important for managers and that usually means that a manager is also interested in some personal information about how the employee is doing away from work. It might be valuable to know what an employee plans to do three or five years from now and what other valuable interests the employee may have. Knowing about employee hobbies, continuing education efforts, networking, and what one does during leisure time can all be vital in adding personal touches to future conversations and pep talks.

Most employees react favorably if they sense a manager really cares about them and what they are doing and hope to do in life.

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!

TRUST: THE BOND WHICH KEEPS CIVILIZATION TOGETHER!!!

Many things attract and repulse humans from one another but the most important bond or attraction is trust between two or more humans. If you lie or steal from someone then they will not trust you and any hope for a close relationship and peaceful interactions is lost or destroyed.

In a family if you can’t trust your spouse or offspring then there is no happy family life. If you try to salvage the relationship it will only result in much misery and dissatisfaction and result in more than just a dysfunctional relationship. In effect, no good relationship is possible.

If you can’t trust your leaders then respect and admiration for them is lost and humans will try to survive without the help of the leadership as best that they can. If you can’t trust the media then they are no longer respected and their advice is not taken as valid for your existence.

The United States is undergoing a moral crisis. Fewer and fewer politicians are trusted, many celebrities and liberal arts professors are not trusted, the establishment media is not trusted by most, and many business leaders are not trusted because most feel that they are out to make money at their expense and don’t deliver quality products and services.

The resultant moral decay is felt worldwide and fewer and fewer nations trust the United States as being an effective worldwide police force to protect them against violent aggression. Tyrannies and Islam are spreading in an absence of moral and political democratic leadership from the west and American influence is waning.

Once trust is lost it is almost impossible to regain and will take more than just one generation to recover if even that is possible. Historically once an empire has lost control or disintegrates then the empire breaks up into competing smaller units which may or may not be reconsolidated into another empire.

The globalists are trying to rule the world with money and are succeeding to some extent but will only be able to truly rule the world with a moral ideology and not a corrupt distribution of wealth only. I have tried to give the globalists a secular moral code to guide their financial redistribution of wealth and it 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.

I predict a technological elite ruling the world in the not too distant future. Whether my prediction will come true is debatable but I think there is a great probability that it will happen if we don’t irreversibly and irresponsibly destroy biodiversity and the environment in the process.

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.

10 IMPORTANT PARENTING QUESTIONS ANSWERED!!!

My kids are frequently hitting each other. What can I do about it?

 

Most aggression results from a reaction to a toy being taken away or the destruction of what one has built. The basic underlying desire to be the dominant child in an interaction or selfishness is a contributory factor in most conflict situations. This reveals the necessity for teaching children that some toys are personal property to be respected and other toys are property which can be shared.

At first teaching how to share a toy needs adult supervision and you can introduce sharing by saying that one child can play with a toy for 5 minutes and then it is time for the other to spend 5 minutes playing with it. Harder to teach is a cooperative playing with a toy but in the case of a car it can mean shoving the car back and forth between two children along the floor or table top.

When building with blocks one child may want to destroy what was built so it is important to point out that this is unacceptable behavior to do and you must reprimand the offending destructive child.

Being a referee between two children of about the same age is hard enough but if you have three or more of about the same age then you have a handful of conflict on your hands if they all fight with each other. If the kids are all playing in the same room then you could instruct each one to pick a toy to play with and give them a space or corner of the room in which to play in.

When kids seem to be fighting for no reason at all such as pushing or shoving a lot then point out that this kind of behavior is mean and bad and that it shouldn’t be done.

It is not just important to find out who started a fight or who hit first but what was the underlying cause so you can always ask why did you hit your sibling? Sometimes aggression seems justified so you may just inform the victim child that he or she should complain to the parent about the situation. At other times kids may fight for no good reason at all and isolating them from each other for a time may be a possible partial solution. Whatever the situation be firm with a no fighting rule in the house and enforce the no fighting rule with punishment such as isolation for10 minutes or so for the offending aggressive party if you know with certainty who the first offender was.

Orderliness is very important and before bedtime all toys should be put away. Having toy bins with personal toys and shared toys may be one way of organizing a playroom or bedroom. Yes, at first you will have to instruct which toys go into which bins but once you succeed at this then cleanup will be less of a problem. An older child may be asked to show the younger one which toys go into which bins.

When there is an age difference of two or more years then fighting may not be a large problem. You can start teaching responsibility to your older child by asking them to teach the younger child how to do things like drawing, building things, reading to them, or teaching basic math.

A final important note is that you should try to teach or punish children fairly by not showing favoritism towards one child over another. Stress the fact that you love all your children equally and that there is no such thing as a bad child or a good child but merely good and bad behavior. When you get angry tell them that you are angry at the bad behavior and not angry at the child him or herself since you still love them.

 

How should I handle a situation where my child is being bullied?

 

Verbal bullying can either be ignored or you can teach your child to defend themselves verbally by responding with simple phrases such as “That’s your opinion not mine.”, “Grow up and act like an adult.”, “Pick on someone else if you want to feel superior.”, “Treat me like shit and I will never be your friend”, “Try being nice to people, you will have more friends.”, “You now have a reputation of being a big bad bully.”, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”, or ”To be respected you must treat others with respect.”

If it is physical bullying such as pushing, shoving, and punching then teaching your child self defense which does not severely injure the opponent may be necessary. Japanese Aikido is one example but Tae Kwon Do is another example where kicking and footwork, feet being the strongest part of the body, is emphasized. You can tell a child to warn the aggressor that if he or she does it again then they will get kicked if it is just a push or a shove. If your child gets punched or physically assaulted then one important key to defense is to trip them to the ground and proceed to kick them and maybe even punch them on the body but not head.

I personally was bullied by an overweight boy slightly shorter than me and I ignored his bullying until one day he pushed me off a fence that I was sitting on and I almost broke my neck. I was so enraged that I tripped him and proceeded to kick him and punch his head while he was on the ground. I slightly hurt my hand by punching his bony head so that was not a smart thing to do but he never bullied me again.

Another personal incident was where we were bragging about who was the strongest, got into a fight and I put him into a choke hold and he pass out and it scared me because I thought that maybe I had killed him. I made a mistake because he was bigger and stronger than me and I avoided him as much as possible after this initial incident for fear of being beaten up. We were never friends after that incident. This is not a bullying incident but just a lesson that fighting is not the best answer to successful conflict resolution and it is certainly not civil behavior.

 

When and how to talk to children about sex?

 

When a child is considered too young to understand the sexual act then simply saying that mommy got pregnant, you grew in her belly, and then were born as a baby. If the child is smart enough to ask further questions such as how did I get out of her belly then simply say through the vagina. If the child then asks what a vagina is then say it is an opening in the body between the legs. If the child asks how did mommy get pregnant then say daddy helped her to become pregnant. If the child wants more details then you have a precocious child on your hands who will probably understand further details.

Answers to very young children should be very general and not specific and they will usually be satisfied with the general answer that you give them and stop further questioning. When they ask for more details don’t lie to them but start giving a clinical truthful but brief answer. If you are embarrassed and don’t want to admit that you and mom have sex then show them examples of animals having sex and explain what they are doing.

 

How can I convince my children that smoking, drinking to excess, and taking drugs is not a smart thing to do?

 

Be good role model parents. Don’t smoke, don’t do drugs, and don’t drink to excess. If you smoke, do drugs, and drink to excess then the probability that your children will have the same handicaps is very great no matter how much you try to scare them out of doing so.

Drinking and driving is the greatest danger so if they are driving your car make it a strict rule that they can only have one or two beers or one or two glasses of wine and then drive. If they get drunk then tell them to call a taxi or get a ride home from a designated driver. Of course if you catch them driving drunk or high on drugs then revoke their driving privileges for a month or longer.

 

With a very busy schedule, how can I spend adequate time with my kids?

 

If you have more than one kid then schedule your time with each one of them personally on a regular basis and also schedule time with all of them together on family outings. Keep in mind that quality time is the most important and if you are not spending time teaching your child something new, sharing a skill or activity such as chess, tennis, or computers, encouraging their interests or praising them for good deeds or accomplishments, asking about how his or her day or week went, helping with homework and other tasks, discussing bad behavior, or sharing your work experiences then it is probably mostly wasted time together.

 

How can you change low selfesteem?

 

Some children simply don’t do well in school and have few or no friends and generally have a low opinion of themselves or low selfesteem. Your parental expectations may be too high and you may not have motivated the child enough with praise and encouragement for things done well.

Tell your child that not everyone can become an engineer, scientist, computer programmer, doctor, or lawyer and offer them the possibility of becoming proficient in some vocational profession such as a car or motorcycle mechanic, plumber, electrician, police officer, military officer, nurse, teacher, etc.

Every child should have long range goals if possible and selflearning vocational skills during the teenage years may be an ideal way to get a foot in the door and some useful vocational knowledge. Ultimately if your child learns a useful skill that pays relatively well then they should do rather well in life no matter how low their selfesteem.

Selfesteem originates from trying things and doing them successfully. You can insist that they help you with housework and praise them for doing a good job. Introduce them to interesting hobbies which don’t cost much money and generally get them interested in doing things or actively pursuing interests outside of school also. The more active that they are and do things successfully, the more their selfesteem will build up.

Teach them that failure is inevitable in life and the key to overcoming failure is to get up and try again or do something else which you don’t fail at.

 

What do I do when my child lies or steals?

 

Lying and stealing are immoral. Lying means that trust is broken and your reputation with others will hit the toilet. You will never have very close good friends or good friends in general if you lie to them. Without trust a relationship ends or is a very bad one.

Steal from someone and trust also breaks down. Not only is stealing immoral but society punishes thieves with prison since it is considered a criminal activity.

From early childhood you should severely stress that lying and stealing is unacceptable and the punishment severe. I caught my thirteen year old son stealing ten dollars from my wallet and proceeded to spank him severely across the butt with my belt in a rage. He never stole from me again.

For older teenagers compulsive stealing is often a sign of some drug habit which needs much money that they don’t have so be wary of a teenager who suddenly starts stealing from you out of the blue. Yes, peer pressure can also lead to stealing and if you find out that this is the case then your child is hanging out with the wrong crowd and you should put a stop to it as soon as possible. Your child must simply learn to say a fervent NO to lying and stealing. Both acts are severe character flaws which good society does not tolerate.

 

How should I discipline my children?

 

There is a slight difference in disciplining very young children and older ones but both basically entail taking away a possession for duration or taking away a privilege for duration.

Very young children throwing a tantrum can be disciplined with isolation or removing them physically from the tantrum location and making them sit in isolation in a room or car until they calm down. Ask them whether they are ready to go back and behave is something that you should do before you bring them back to the tantrum location which is sometimes a store or public place.

Warning or threatening your child with a threat of punishment is also a way of controlling bad behavior. Taking away a favorite toy, cellphone, rights to use a computer, right to go out of the home (grounding), etc. for duration is usually very effective but if you threaten a punishment then you should follow through with consistency or your threats will be ignored in the future. Also if you promise a reward or to do something like going to a sporting event or theatrical performance then follow through and fulfill the promise.

Discipline must be consistent, clear, and as close to the misbehavior as possible. Discipline delayed is not as effective and young children especially will forget what they are being punished for with poor results in the end.

 

How can I help my children form friendships?

 

If you have good friends yourself then children will learn from your role model example. If you don’t interact with humans that much then teach your children that the best friends are those with common interests in school or near home setting and at about the same age. Teach them not to lie or steal from others so trusting friendly relationships develop.

If your children don’t seem to be interested in much then introduce them to games, hobbies, and sports which they can share with others. Having a bicycle can also increase the range of your child and expose him or her to children farther away in the neighborhood.

 

How can my children learn to be independent?

 

Independence means doing things on your own so start early teaching them numbers, words, reading, and math which they will definitely need in school. As soon as possible have them do household chores such as vacuuming, cleaning, food preparation, laundry, yard work, taking out the garbage, etc.

Introduce them as early as possible to games, hobbies, sports, and tools. Teach them your job skills and how to budget money. If it is a suburban neighborhood have them wash cars, mow grass, walk a neighbor’s dog, or do other work suited to teenagers for money. In effect, keep them busy doing useful things on their own and they will learn how to be independent.

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.

WAYS YOU CAN DIFFER WITH YOUR FUTURE SPOUSE!!!

Before marriage it is always important to make sure that your views on morality are the same or that you trust each other, don’t lie, and believe in a monogamous relationship during marriage. Other things which are very important are your spending habits and whether you want to raise children. Agreeing on these major points is necessary for a good compatible marriage but there are other areas where commonality is not so important and may even be an antidote for a boring marital life. If you differ in these 8 general areas then it is no great reason for being overly concerned and it can result in a rather interesting marriage and not a dull one.

Different hobbies and interests are acceptable and with time and the sharing of experiences you may even become more interested in those differing hobbies and interests yourself. I had a scientific background and a great interest in technology, tools, and science and my wife was an artist interested in crafts, knitting, sewing, and dress making which I considered at first to basically be a waste of time, not a money maker, and basically boring trivia.

Over the years I made aesthetic evaluations based primarily upon how close to reality and nature the artistic items were. I was surprised that with time my tastes and spouse’s tastes became more alike and I developed a good sense of color, texture, etc. and became much better at evaluating artistic expressions and was surprised how often she asked me for advice, I gladly offered it, and we often agreed.

Different political beliefs are possible because one spouse will basically think that government should get involved in helping out humans in need and the other spouse may basically feel that humans should behave more responsibly and government help should only be used as a last resort. Let’s face it, establishment Republicans and Democrats basically believe in growing government and passing laws often favoring the rich and special interests even though they may claim publically that they are representing and addressing the needs of minorities, the poor, and middle class.

Sexual turn-ons may slightly differ in spouses and some may seem rather unusual and kinky. With time and having sex the same basic way very often you may eventually try doing some of that kinky stuff as a change of pace and find out that it is not that bad after all and perhaps perfectly acceptable. After all, pleasing one another sexually can be important even though some of the desired variations may take a little effort and perhaps unpleasant sacrifice to fulfill.

It is not unusual for taste in movies, music, and TV to be different with women often liking love stories, family films, and romance a lot while men often prefer action films and sports related subject matter.

Different cultural, religious, and ethnic backgrounds can sometimes challenge a relationship if there is no common morality but often these differences can be accepted and even appreciated with the passage of time. Most conflicts which will arise can be ironed out if dogmatic relatives do not get too involved and start interfering in the marriage and trying to run it in one direction only or a direction which is opposed to the beliefs and practices of one spouse exclusively.

Of course if you are a dogmatic Muslim, Jehovah Witness, or Orthodox Jew then a different religion for a spouse will not work. Most religions are relatively flexible with liberal and conservative wings and a shared basic morality which is don’t lie, don’t steal, and don’t commit adultery if married.

Introvert and extrovert spouses can often make a go of it where the introverted spouse leaves most of the socializing to the other spouse and focuses mainly on family responsibilities and not social ones. I am an introvert without a close friend and let my wife take care of social connections. It has worked well this way for over 25 years. I am much more selective in the humans that I associate with than my wife who maintains minimal contact with about a hundred humans who have crossed her life but even here she only has a handful of a few good friends and her sister whom she stays in frequent contact with.

Cleanliness and orderliness can be an abnormal obsession with some humans who may incessantly nag if something is not clean or orderly. If the house isn’t cleaned on a regular basis, the dishes are not always washed, the laundry is not always done, etc. you can still lead a relatively clean and orderly life as long as you are not nagged about it on a regular basis.

A sense of adventure and desire to travel may differ in spouses and is usually a costly enterprise since traveling to distant places and meeting different humans is often time consuming and expensive. If you don’t like adventure then you can let your spouse do the adventuresome stuff alone or with other like minded humans.

As long as you are not going into debt financing the travel and adventure, it is not something which will ruin a marriage.

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.

IMPORTANT THINGS WHICH YOU SHOULD NOT TOLERATE IN BUSINESS OR ELSEWHERE!!!

tolerance

Dishonesty, untrustworthiness, and absence of respect are all problems arising out of an absence of integrity or the existence of immorality (lying, stealing, deception, and cheating) on the part of the leader or employee. If a human does not have integrity then you should minimize contact with them as much as possible. Trust or integrity is the bond which makes good relationships possible so if you don’t have the bond then the relationship if any will be dysfunctional.

Boredom and mediocrity often exist together and humans with either trait should be avoided as much as possible because they are stagnating and not making any progress towards selfimprovement and a better life.

Negative or pessimistic and toxic or severely flawed humans mean much trouble and they just create toxic environments to be living under so avoid them or get rid of them as much as possible.

Unhealthy food, drink, relationships, and habits should be excluded or avoided as much as possible, especially if you want improvement in yourself and others.

Undependable, incompetent, and unorganized humans should also be avoided or excluded as much as possible because they will introduce too much chaos in your life.

Angry humans and those filled with regrets should also be avoided or excluded as much as possible unless you want to live with confrontational aggressive drama humans and those who live too much in the past and don’t have useful plans for the future.

Remember that you can’t control humans who are out of control and there are many other things over which you have no control over. So learn to ignore, avoid, or exclude what you can’t control as much as possible.

Learn the basic fact that some humans and circumstances should simply not be tolerated and proceed courageously to avoid or exclude them from your business or life.

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.

17 THINGS GOOD BOSSES SHOULD KNOW HOW TO DO!!!

I-Love-My-Boss

Essentially after a qualified and competent worker is hired a boss’ job is to motivate and support or help the worker to do the job well and with enthusiasm.

BOSSES MOTIVATE WITH THE FOLLOWING TECHNIQUES:

They encourage when reluctance or fear of not being able to do the task is felt,

they maintain an atmosphere of trust so that no worker is overly fearful or dissatisfied with the emotional working environment and feels free to communicate with the boss and say anything that they may feel is relevant,

they are decisive and confident thus giving the worker the courage to do even when the task seems hard and difficult,

they accept occasional worker failure, don’t lose their optimism, and don’t use insults, put downs, name calling, and ridicule to belittle the worker,

they clearly communicate the rules and goals of the company giving confidence, clear guidance and understanding, and a sense of purpose to the worker,

they contribute to the work at hand by participating and working along with the workers at least once in a while to maintain an esprit de corps and don’t just isolate themselves in the office all day,

they are effective listeners and make their workers feel important and respected when they communicate,

the best bosses also have a sense of humor and can tell entertaining stories to perk up workers,

they are thankful or show gratitude so that workers feel that their efforts are appreciated,

they are inspirational and optimistic and give earned praise appropriately thus inspiring workers,

they have an ability to energize their workers when the going gets tough or tedious.

they know how to discipline good workers who are starting to goof off or are no longer doing a good job. This can be done with a threatened firing or pointing out role model workers who are doing the job well or better and thus challenging the wayward worker to do better or get back in shape.

SUPPORT OR HELP IS GIVEN WITH THE FOLLOWING TECHNIQUES:

They acknowledge work well done or give credit where credit is due,

they empower or give the tools and direction necessary to do the job and are good coaches,

they are results oriented and are not out to win a popularity contest if it means a job not well done,

they strengthen the workforce by eliminating bad workers who destroy the incentive to do well and function at optimal efficiency.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CONFIDENTIAL+

confidential

Confidential: adj. secret and/or strictly private

If you want to keep something totally confidential then hide it and tell no one. The probability of your confidentiality being revealed increases proportional to the number of humans that know about it. The more humans you tell the greater is the probability that your secret will be revealed.

In the real world confidential information is usually shared with a trusted human whom you feel will not betray you under any circumstances. Confidentiality is usually relatively safe with a spouse or a very close friend but tell any other humans your secret and it is just a question of time before it leaks out or even becomes public knowledge.

Innovative businesses frequently have confidential information which they don’t want the public to know about or other competitors so there is considerable effort made in limiting the research and manufacturing facilities to trusted authorized personnel only.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PROMISE+

promise

Promise: v. to communicate and try to create trust or confidence in another that one will or will not do something in the future and/or that a subset(s) will exist in the future.

If you make a promise then you should try to fulfill it to the best of your ability because if you don’t then it is equivalent to you lying about what you will do in the future. Your reputation will suffer if you don’t fulfill promises and humans will stop believing in your promises and act accordingly.

You can consider a promise to be a contract with someone to do something in the future. If you fail to do so then you have violated or broken the contractual agreement and faith or belief in you will be degraded.

Sometimes there are valid excuses for not fulfilling a promise such as getting stuck in traffic or a more important obligation may surface between the time the promise is destined to be fulfilled.

The danger is in starting to make promises and then depending on imaginary creative excuses to get out of fulfilling the promise. Unless it is a real and serious excuse, don’t depend on excuses to get you out of fulfilling a promise because the more excuses you make the less humans will believe in your promises and they will consider you to be a liar.

What are the results of not fulfilling a promise? The human to whom you made the promise will be disappointed and will frequently be justifiably angry at you. If you don’t fulfill a promise it is really a form of lying and the next time that you make a promise humans will be less inclined to trust you and it will decrease the quality of your relationship with them. If you want the bad reputation of an unreliable human then don’t fulfill your promises.

Not being punctual is breaking a promise and it can cost your employer time, energy, and money and even lead to a firing if it becomes a bad habit.

Showing up late for a party or social gathering and keeping your host guessing whether you will show up at all is becoming a common practice in society and humans begin to think that being late for a date or not being home when promised is also not a terrible bad habit. The fact is that it is a form of wasting someone’s time and your reputation for being reliable will be in the toilet with the human whose time you have wasted.

Promising to do something and then procrastinating about it or never doing it at all is not fulfilling a promise and a lie which more than upsets the humans who are affected by your failure to come through. If you do it too frequently then you will no longer have a trusting relationship and you will have the reputation of being a liar or a lazy good for nothing human.

Many in society promise easy money, beauty, weight loss, health, fame, and fortune if you buy or use their product or service and they are lies with disappointment and failure being the true consequences of believing those lies. The gullible or trusting public is the reason why so many untrue promises are made and many become unjustly rich with their deceptions and lies. Remember, that if it sounds too good to be true it probably is a total lie or a clever deception which you should not fall for.

Making a promise to strangers and not fulfilling them will not hurt you as much as making promises to your offspring, spouse, or close friends and not fulfilling them. If you promise not to make a mistake again or do a bad behavior again then make sure that you will follow through and make the necessary change but don’t make the promise if it is one of your bad habits and not likely to change at all.

Promising to buy a toy, go fishing, or attend an important school event and not fulfilling it will not only cause disappointment in your offspring but it will even cause them to doubt whether you really love them or not.

Historically being a man or woman of your word used to mean much in a relationship and sadly it is still one of the main reasons why modern relationships suffer when promises are not kept.

Did you ever promise to show up on time, promise to do a household chore, promise to never make a stupid mistake again, promise to attend an important event, and promise to be faithful? Don’t fulfill a promise and someone will be hurt or offended even though you may feel it is no great transgression.

Not fulfilling a promise is a form of lying and humans have every right to become upset. Yes, there are times when you get caught in a traffic jam, have more important obligations to do, or just never had the time to fulfill a promise and these excuses are accepted by many because they are reasonable since the future is sometimes unpredictable and can wreak havoc on a promise.

Unfortunately breaking your promises with excuses each time can become a bad habit and you will soon be thought of as an unreliable and untrustworthy human to stay away from. Don’t show up at work on time too frequently and you will be fired and don’t show up for a first date on time and your reputation will be in the toilet in most cases.

Punctuality is no longer revered as it once was and humans frequently waste their time, energy, and sometimes money waiting on someone to show up and develop a very bad opinion of the offender.

Advertisements are filled with deceptive promises of beauty, health, longevity, good dates, sexual success, educational success, security, social status, and sudden great wealth which are all hidden lies. Society permits false promises or lying and it is no wonder that the common man and woman are also making many false promises to each other and don’t realize that the relationship is suffering from an absence of total trust which is what happens when you are not honest, sincere, and reliable in your relationship.

Don’t make a promise which you don’t intend to keep and you will become a more trustworthy and reliable human who is more respected and admired by others including your significant other.

THE TRUTH ABOUT MENTORING+

Mentoring-Concept-487498941

Mentor: v. to advise and teach for a relatively long duration by one who is frequently experienced and respected and trusted and older

Mentoring is mostly giving advice with some teaching and could be considered to be being a role model who is teaching you how to follow in his or her footsteps. In ancient Greece relatively old and wise mentors not only gave professional advice but even advised you on how to live a moral and social life.

Today most mentors mentor youngsters or are high ranked professionals who take a younger human under their supervision to teach them the basics of how to succeed in a given profession. Actually anyone whom you respect and trust and who is experienced at something or many things can be your mentor. Mentoring can be short lived but some mentoring lasts for a long duration and the mentoring can be done by someone whose knowledge is so extensive that you may go to them for advice as long as they are alive.

Mentoring is a general inclusive category and usually voluntary but some are paid for the mentoring subsets and it is usually considered coaching, counseling, teaching, supervising, or training. A general mentor usually does a little of every subset mentioned to some extent.

THE TRUTH ABOUT INFLUENCE+

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Influence: v. to control and/or affect a subset(s) intentionally and sometimes unintentionally with a lasting effect(s) and not always with a commanding action(s) only and frequently by being an authority and/or by being respected for ((achievement and/or competence) and/or expertise) and/or by merely existing in our lives and/or by being desired

We are influenced by humans and lifeforms, objects, and events and the influence sometimes continues for a lifetime or any duration in between.

We have all tried to influence our offspring, significant other, spouse, friends, and other humans with our opinions, beliefs, expertise, demands, and material possessions to feel good about ourselves or to try and derive some benefit from the interaction.

Despite our best attempts at persuasion an offspring or other human just does not obey us or take our advice and maybe even does the opposite of what we would like them to do.

In order to influence someone you need to be in an authoritative position or respected for your expertise in some field to have maximum impact on the one whom you are trying to influence. The more humans trust, respect, and maybe even admire you, the more influence you will have on their lives.

Similarly the humans who influence us the most are the ones who are in positions of authority over us or are humans closest to us whom we respect and maybe even admire. Politicians, bosses, celebrities, offspring, significant other, spouse, and close friends can also influence our lives and make us do things and think thoughts which can change our lives for better or worse.

Sometimes we have no power over who influences our lives but the smartest thing to do is to try and surround ourselves with as many good humans as possible so that most of the influence is good and not bad.

Influencing is not always a conscious activity which we are aware of. The media, advertising, and humans whom we would not like to be influenced by may actually influence us by their mere dominant existence in our lives. There is good and bad in the world and unfortunately the bad can also subconsciously influence our lives and make it worse than we would like it to be or given enough time can even change our opinions and sometimes beliefs.

Sometimes we make a mistake trying to influence someone a certain way and the influence may actually be unintentional which can have unintended good or bad consequences. We may ask our offspring to obey us but our personal behavior may be much different and influence them in an unwanted way. Do as I say and not do as I do leads to much unintentional influencing because actions speak louder than words.

You can also influence humans transiently with deceptions, untruths, and ego inflation but once your deceptions, untruths, and insincere praise becomes known your power to influence will wane and even come to an end and more importantly you will lose your good trusted reputation.

Influenceun: n. unintentional influence

THE TRUTH ABOUT BIG DATA+

download

Big data is the new word for big brother or big sister watching everything that you say online or on your cellphone, analyzing what you say you do, where you travel, and how your body is functioning.

Take away your cell phone, your computer, your GPS monitored car, and the electronic devices which are tied in to the internet and no one will find out what you are saying, where you are going, or what you are doing. Live without electronic devices and you can live a relatively isolated private boring life.

If all this information is monitored by honest, trustworthy humans then you have nothing to fear but if unscrupulous advertisers and criminals get your most private information and use it to their advantage then you can get yourself into much trouble. How you can maintain the privacy of your trade secrets or account information is still a work in progress and clever hackers will usually find a way to access it if they want it badly enough and have the financial backing to do it.

There is definitely a drawback to having your most private information known if you are wealthy or in positions of prestigious leadership. For the common human privacy should be of little concern since there is not much that someone can steal from you except your identity which can be a real hassle if it happens.

Going to reputable internet sites and taking out identity insurance is probably your best insurance against identity theft or revealing your account information to criminals. Also learn a little about Phishing scams on your computer which can trick you into downloading some Malware or Trojans unintentionally with one or two clicks only.

Big data is already used in an attempt to monitor criminal activity, potential terrorist activity, your shopping habits, humans that you know, spread of disease, your daily vital signs for some, and recorded personal health information.

In the distant future insurance companies will soon be able to better assess your risk potential for future accidents or injury based upon big data analyzing your daily bad habits and traffic violations.

Stock market trading is using fast computers and algorithms to make trades automatically. When your school work gets wired teachers will probably start to monitor your progress and start giving hints on how you can improve your schoolwork and how you can compensate for some of your weaknesses to some extent.

For the common human annoying ads when you don’t want them is what you will probably be putting up with the most. If you aren’t lying or stealing then you basically have nothing to worry about when it comes to big data.

Fortunately most of your private data or information is divided among the private companies which monitor your behavior such as the phone company, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and any other services which you use or join and they are in competition with each other so not all of your information is monitored by just one entity such as the government.

The amount of data generated by billions of humans is overwhelmingly large, about 40 zettabytes, and your communications are just a drop in a huge bucket and all not that easy to trace efficiently so you don’t have to get paranoid that someone is watching your every move right now. Someday you will be so centrally electronically monitored by the government that your chances of being monitored will be higher but the sheer overwhelming amount of data is partial security that you will not be singled out for total surveillance by one entity.

 

Potential tragic circumstances from your communications and interactions with others is only probable if you are lying or stealing or have some very bad habits or friends which you don’t want others to know about.

WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS MORE TRUST NOT MORE LOVE!!!!!!

expensive trustt

Think about it. If you trust someone then you can also love someone but if you don’t trust someone then how can you love them? Love is a subset of trust and that means that trust is more important than love. Humans can love almost any human intensely for given durations but if you don’t trust them then the love that you experience with them can be very transitory.

What the world needs now is trust sweet trust, that’s the only thing that there is just too little of!!!!!!

 

Here is a recommendation of the things that you need to establish a trusting relationship, the magical bond which keeps humans attracted to one another!

 

Your actions are consistent or you don’t do one thing in one situation and another thing in the same situation latter on.

If your relationship is predictable then there is a greater probability that you will establish trust.

 

Your words match your deeds or you do what you say that you are going to do.

Actions speak louder than words and if you say one thing but do another then you will have a hard time establishing a trusting relationship.

 

You make promises that you can keep or you fulfill promises to the best of your ability.

Promise to show up on time or promise to do something and don’t then this is considered a lie about the future and your trusting relationship will be more tenuous if you don’t try your hardest to fulfill your promises.

 

You take responsibility for your decisions or if you make a mistake then you own up to it and maybe even apologize.

Managerial responsibility and parental responsibility and responsibility in general is essential if a trusting relationship will develop. Who wants to trust  an irresponsible, unpredictable human? Almost no one!

 

You don’t backstab or undercut those around you or you don’t try to cleverly manipulate humans and take credit for their good actions and don’t spread harmful rumors about humans for personal gain.

No one likes humans who take credit for their efforts in front of or behind their backs. No one likes to be manipulated behaviorally just to benefit someone’s personal gain, especially if bad rumors were spread about you to achieve those personal gains.

 

You don’t focus on yourself or don’t spend time bragging about yourself or your accomplishments or walking around with a haughty “I am better than you” attitude.

Trust develops better if a human is willing to share his or her success with others and is not obsessed with taking all the credit for it, especially in a boasting imperious way.

 

You monitor the success and welfare of your cohorts or notice how well humans who are important in your life are doing and guide or motivate them on to even greater success or wellbeing.

Being empathetic with the humans you influence or who surround you is important in developing trust because humans want to feel that you care about them personally.

 

You tell the truth in an honest sincere way avoiding harsh criticism, put downs, ridicule, and name calling.

I left this for last but it is the most important thing which you must have for trust to develop. Tell a lie, deceive a person with a partial lie, or tell untruths and a trusting relationship will not develop!

Honesty is almost always the best policy and it can be communicated in sincere ways which don’t hurt human feelings that much even when they may hurt feelings a little which is unavoidable reality.

TRANSPARENCY IN MEDICINE IS VITAL TO REESTABLISH AND MAINTAIN PATIENT TRUST!!!

82212

Transparency or a truthful relationship of doctor and patient is essential to maintain trust in the doctor patient relationship.

Leana Wen on ted.com argues for an honest disclosure of potential conflicts of interest of doctors who are on the payroll list of powerful drug companies whose drugs they use and promote.

My personal opinion is that doctors are not perfect Gods who don’t make mistakes and there is good reason to ask doctors to disclose their mistakes to the public on the internet. This is so that their mistake rate is public knowledge and perhaps only after the same mistake is repeated more than three times should the doctor be under the potential for a valid medical malpractice suit.

There is currently too much fear in the doctor patient relationship on both sides because trust has severely eroded and it is time to reestablish it as much as possible with the truth and dealing head on with human or doctor fallibility.
