MORALITY, IDEOLOGY, MULTICULTURALISM, AND SEXISM???

Ideology: n. being a system of beliefs and/or ideas about a subset(s) which is frequently a political and/or economic subset(s)

Moral: adj. privately and/or publicly conforming to normative standards of goodness and/or rightness in behavior whose origin is frequently from religious and/or ethical standards of goodness and/or rightness

Unity in the nation and the world is almost impossible to achieve because morality, ideology, multiculturalism, and sexism exist and clash with each other if there is not unity of thought on how to handle each of these topics within a nation and within an international ruling body trying to make universal laws for the world.

Sexism is the hardest ideology to reach a consensus on because males and females are not biologically equal and even though mental ability may be relatively equally distributed in males and females there is still the difference of physical strength and height which makes females undesirable in some professions such as elite special military forces, heavy furniture movers, and other professions requiring constant or occasional use of great physical strength and height.

It is also a biological fact that most females are inherently born to be better at raising small offspring due to a tendency to care more or to be more nurturing and protective of young offspring than adult males in general.

Historically most societies have been patriarchal in nature with females being more submissive and males being more domineering and responsible for the protection and financial support of the family unit. Worldwide culturally, male dominance is still prevalent and is dying a slow death.

Cultures with Sharia law in place are perfect examples of sexist cultures where males and females do not have equal rights and probably never will as long as the traditions and laws don’t change through a gradual evolutionary reorganization. Western cultures with relative male female equality are simply incompatible with Sharia law cultures and this is a primary reason why there is violent resistance between the two fundamentally different ideologies.

Yes, Sharia law Muslims can coexist in the United States but they would have to live in separate self sufficient communities like the Amish did historically since Sharia law is incompatible with the United States Constitution on many points, especially those dealing with women’s rights. The Constitution is a political ideology which conflicts with Sharia law ideology.

A financially and morally responsible family unit is essential to the long duration prosperity of a nation and world. Propagandizing unhealthy food, promiscuity, drug use, gambling, and a male versus female ideology is detrimental to any nation and the world. Symbiotic male female family relationships should be propagandized more than hedonistic individual lifestyles for there to be a cohesive culture, cohesive nation, and cohesive world.

Males in leadership positions and many technological professions have struggled hard and aggressively to be dominant in those fields and often have ignored family responsibilities because of a fanatical devotion to work.

I am sure that many females too can be just as aggressive and smart hard working and excel in traditional “male” professions but unfortunately the offspring will suffer if there are not competent nannies or tutors to monitor the progress and encourage the progress of the offspring.

Those who can successfully balance the stress of  super human work and family responsibilities at the same time are still few and far between and it is a sad fact of life that ambitious smart hard working parents will often ignore their offspring too much to the detriment of the next generation.

With a decline in universal moral principles to guide human behavior ugly ideology is rearing its head with social justice warriors labeling, attacking, and blacklisting conservatives with opposing ideological beliefs. The result of this “group think” or collectivist ideology is that individual rights are being trampled.

Individuals are being financially and socially destroyed in the name of ideological purity. If you are not a Democrat then you are a racist, misogynist, homophobe, Fascist, Nazi, or white suprematist who doesn’t deserve to be in  leadership positions in education, entertainment, business, and society in general.

The old establishment is trying to replace a historical moral consensus with a National ideology to try and counteract the rising tide of social immorality and it is failing miserably. Alternative media is on the rise trying to offer an alternative to the big money corrupted politicians, celebrities, corporations, and educational system.

A multicultural nation is not a recipe for a stable and prosperous nation. The constitution must encourage the assimilation of humans from different cultures into a national cohesion which promotes the free exchange of nonviolent ideas and lifestyles but does not permit the overt oppression of minorities and minority or individual rights.

What is desperately needed is a basic universal secular moral code to replace subjective political ideology, a redefinition of family values which promote peaceful and harmonious symbiotic relationships in marriage, and an educational system which promotes the secular moral code, family values, and a return to useful educational excellence. Useful education focuses on useful knowledge and rewarding humans who invest their time, effort, and ability no matter what their age.

In a fast changing tumultuous technological age, free interactive online internet useful education should be a basic right for all unemployed and also destitute citizens, no matter what their age. Yes, if you are unemployed and also destitute then you should also be provided with free healthy food, drink, clothing, delivered door to door, shelter, emergency medical care, but no motorized vehicle to roam the world with to spend time on trivial pursuits.

Most important of all is to indoctrinate impressionable young minds in elementary school with a secular moral code so that by the age of about 13 they should be able to make impulsive decisions without always having to stop and ask- Is what I am doing right or wrong?

This universal secular morality 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.

Elementary school should also be a time when the morality is presented with real life examples and polite public etiquette. Good relationships with others should also be emphasized with real life examples of integrity, honesty, kindness, encouragement, affection, empathy, sharing, cooperation, sacrifice, commitment, responsibility, fulfilling promises, dependability, smart hard work, competence, etc. Other values such as courage, ambition, compromise, negotiation, information research, selfeducation, etc. can also be taught but not in detail in elementary school.

Moral, financially responsible and usefully educated parents should be the long duration goal of every advanced society or nation. Moral education, financial education, and responsible relationship education is of vital importance and it should intensively begin in elementary school in the important formative years, especially for offspring of single parent and dysfunctional parent homes.

A private institution and/or a government department should fill in the details or real life examples of the secular moral code and offer it as a voluntary standard of moral educational excellence. I have done most of the groundwork for this vital enterprise and I am passing the baton on to the educational leadership of the nation and world.

19 IMPORTANT TIPS AND GOOD HABITS FOR A BETTER LIFE!!!

Image of a glossy highway sign on blue sky

Eat healthy organic food and drink whenever possible, exercise a little if you have a sedentary job, and get adequate sleep. Do all three to stay healthy in the long duration.

Analyze yourself and find out if you are more of an extrovert or introvert or a combination of both which is what many humans are. If you have a good memory for names and enjoy interacting with humans then you may have the potential to be a leader and can work on perfecting your emotional intelligence skills. If you can’t remember names very well, don’t enjoy human drama, and prefer to work alone at something then you probably are an introvert and you should work at becoming an expert in your field of expertise. For the average human being competent or skillful at a job and having good social skills will lead to a balanced normal life which most are suited for and with which most will be happy with.

Maintain your integrity because honesty and morality, dependability, and competence creates trust and a good reputation with time. This enduring approach will be admired and respected by most humans.

Learn to budget your money and time and try to focus on what you truly NEED and not on what you WANT, to reduce your dependence on possessions. Everything that you do requires some time, energy, effort, and sometimes much money so learn to wisely budget not only your money but wisely budget your time, energy, and effort too.

Choose your friends wisely by preferring dependable, competent, trustworthy ones with integrity or those honest and moral ones. It also greatly helps if your closest friends motivate you to do better and are themselves humans with ambition and with a drive to be better.

Spend your time wisely and be selective in your friendships classifying them as potential close friends, interesting friends as a source for useful knowledge or shared interests, and possible future useful networking acquaintances. Spend more time with your priority friendships, less time with interesting friends, and minimal time with casual acquaintances.

Be kind to humans if they deserve it and try to help humans who ask for help, even if it is only some sound advice which you think you have and give.

Develop and maintain a curiosity in new useful knowledge, skills, and experiences. Ask many smart questions and get answers from those who might know. Failing at getting a satisfactory answer or acceptable opinions from other humans, you can resort to research or selfeducation to get expert answers.

One of the greatest aids in making change for the better easier is to keep a written journal of useful knowledge and useful new experiences which you have had every week if not every day. When you write things down your conscious and subconscious brain remembers better and when you start thinking you will be doing more than just impulsively rethinking old ideas and reliving old experiences. The real key to constructive personal change is to research and read selectively, write down what you think is important, think about what you have written, and do what inspires you to action.

Be selective in the useful knowledge which you acquire by reading useful books and articles on the internet, especially in your field of expertise or something which interests you much. Verbosity abounds in literary works and historical writings so preferably either read summaries of those works or learn to speed read.

Make short and long duration goals and try to achieve them with courageous determined action. Your confidence will increase as you achieve more and more small and some big goals. Greater confidence will make you feel that you are more in control of your life rather than at the mercy of other humans and bad circumstances.

Get really good at something which can be your work or some hobby that you enjoy much. Expertise is valued in this society and there is sometimes the potential of a monetary payoff or advancement in status. Try not to be a jack of all trades and a master of none. It may be a more interesting life but it usually doesn’t pay as well.

Learn to relax for a few minutes during a stressful work schedule but especially do something less stressful after a hard day’s work. Avoid premature burnout on the job with adequate relaxation periods during and after work.

Learn to laugh somewhat at your mistakes and failures to reduce stress but try to learn something from the experiences and change your behavior so that you don’t make the same mistake or fail the same way a second time.

Go for walks and expose yourself to nature even if it is largely with picture and video experiences. Natural beauty is inspiring and will teach you to appreciate the natural world around you, especially the majestic mountains, waterfalls, and wilderness plants and animals. Exposure to nature is often the best therapy, especially when you feel slightly down or depressed.

Don’t hold grudges or hold in resentment for too long because it will adversely affect relationships. We all get our share of insults, name calling, put downs, ridicule, and humiliation. If this verbal abuse comes from respected trustworthy individuals with integrity then they may have a very good reason to act that way. You should determine what set them off and try to correct or change your behavior the next time. If the abuse comes from a boss then you will either have to put up with it or change jobs.

Stay under emotional control and learn to overcome angry outbursts. Try to discuss topics and problems and not argue about them. If you are momentarily in no mood to discuss a problem then let some time pass first, or delay the discussion for another future time and place when you hopefully will be more in control of your emotions.

Use the internet more as a source for useful information mining and not primarily as a source for pure and often trivial entertainment which doesn’t teach you much worthwhile information. Beware of an addiction to social media because it can become a horrendous toxic time waster.

Finally we are all creatures of good and bad habits. Analyze yourself by researching good and bad habits and make two lists which apply to you. The next logical step would be to reduce or eliminate your bad habits and increase or add on good habits to replace the bad. Easier said than done because it will take much courage, determination, and action to bring about improved results. I have done some research myself so you can search my encyclopedic blog with relevant keywords. Best wishes.
