BIG MONEY, ECONOMICS, THE INTERNET, AND IDEOLOGY!!!

Big money is increasingly ruling the world internationally with international banks,  international corporations, and international internet or communications beginning to have more impact on the lives of humans than any one country or national organization. In almost every country this globalized money supply is impacting the political leadership of almost every country and a global ideology is beginning to form which is much more collective and tyrannical in nature.  Individual rights are being assaulted with more of an emphasis on group rights and group think or group ideology.  Putting it another way it is collective rights and collective thinking or collective ideology which is becoming more dominant.

Ironically in its beginning the internet held a promise of individual freedom of expression and individual creativity. With time, money and information power became concentrated in search engines, social media, cellphone companies, and internet commerce all of which now dominate the internet with relatively few corporations being major players and all being able to crush or buy up competitors to increase their profit margin which favors established monied companies which includes monied media companies. Discrimination based on money is rampant but more sinister is the ability to promote collective left wing ideology and censor right wing ideology which still promotes individual rights. It is beginning to look like the tyranny of big money power is being fused with the tyranny of thought control or censorship of politically incorrect thought which champions individual rights and moral or ethical individual free speech.

Economics is now largely a global phenomenon with international trade promoting the rich in every country and more power in the hands of the globally rich. Technology is also increasing the concentration of this money in the hands of the rich nationals and rich internationals but this would not be all bad if it weren’t for the fact that most of the rich have a tyrannical collectivist ideology which threatens to make most individuals little more than impoverished humans living on welfare or working for a pittance often not enough to support a family. This may be an effective form of population control but living an impoverished life seldom helps the culture of a nation to thrive.

Conclusion:

Money power is being concentrated in fewer and fewer hands worldwide, the individual is increasingly being oppressed financially and ideologically, and it becomes harder for one to climb the economic and social status ladder, especially if you start out at the poverty level. For all the members of the technologically educated and elite the future is bright but most jobs will be replaced by computer software and robots. A political and ideological revolution will be necessary to fit the new economic realities where most will not be technologically educated nor smart and ambitious enough so they will largely become dependent on some form of permanent government welfare.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

MANY REASONS WHY A BALANCED BUDGET IS UNLIKELY!!!

The basic reason that the budget is not being balanced is because the government keeps finding excuses to spend more without making the bureaucracy more efficient and world trade is such that the US is making very little that the world needs.

Money is borrowed:

to pay for military spending overseas,

to pay for entitlements such as social security, Medicare, Medicaid, Obama Care, and other government welfare programs whose expenses are growing yearly,

to pay for an excess of imports from abroad,

to pay for emergency situations such as hurricane, tornado, flood damage, and bailing out banks and businesses too big to fail when finances crash causing a severe recession.

The other reasons that the budget is not being balanced is that the economy is tanking with

robotization and technology eliminating jobs,

cheaper products are being imported from overseas and bankrupting businesses,

poor health due to bad quality food and expensive pills with more expensive side effects pills,

family breakdown with less children due to excessive promiscuity and low income,

poorer health due to polluted junk food with artificial chemicals,

poorer health due to pills with expensive drug side effects which need further pills,

cheap illegal alien workforce further stressing community welfare programs,

opioids and excessive drug use, and

outdated education training for jobs which will no longer exist.

So it seems that we are on an ever increasing downward spiral of debt on into the foreseeable future and ignorant politicians are just calling for more spending on health care, infra structure, welfare, etc.

International banks and corporations are ruling the world and it seems that the future of the United States is just going to be another country struggling to financially survive in a financially ruthless world.

It’s nice to end on a positive note so since health is the most important thing for humans I would advocate a switch to organic farming as soon as possible and eliminating taxation of organic food growing, organic restaurants, and food processing of organic food. If you eat healthy, get enough exercise, sleep enough, then you should be prepared for any work that you may be capable of doing.

Technology is proving that brains are more important than brawn so I would recommend a very liberal immigration policy for educated professionals from any country in the world.

Maybe once the United States is run by healthy smart humans again, things will begin to improve again.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BIG MONEY GLOBALISTS AND LEFTIST IDEOLOGY WILL DOMINATE ON INTO THE FUTURE!!!

The biggest threat to the United States is moral decay about which I have written in past articles. That said Globalization is also partially to blame for the current state of moral and economic dysfunction.

It is no great secret that whether it is Republicans or Democrats in power the establishment is in favor of big international banks and international corporations and big national corporations and organizations. The middle class is not high on the list of priority legislation.

Corporations and banks are communal enterprises or consist of many more than one individual so collective leftist ideology is dominant and designed to ultimately oppress the individual and favor collective enterprises and collective group thinking and causes. Globalism and big money is winning and laughing all the way to the bank while the average human is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy or is already dependent on some socialist welfare.

 

For the collective to triumph along with big government, the Democratic party and leftist ideology has taken over most of the media, about 90% of university staff, most big corporations and institutions, most celebrities, even the top echelons of the deep state, and is dominant in promoting an even greater welfare state with over 50% getting some form of welfare support.

 

The only recent area where the Democrats and their ideology has not triumphed is in the Supreme Court. Despite this the majority of lawyers graduating from law school and the top universities are democrats who are hell bent on changing the constitution to benefit their ideological persuasion. Already some state laws are just ignoring the constitution and passing unconstitutional laws which persist because no one is really challenging them in the left leaning courts.

 

The middle class is rapidly disappearing and most are moving to big cities mostly run by Democrats which is rather disheartening news. Mostly low income humans subsidized by some welfare from the government seem to be an undeniable future trend favoring Democrats.  The only reason a majority of registered Democrats sometimes don’t win is because they are too lazy to vote or think that voting will make no difference anyway.

 

Financially responsible moral family units are becoming scarce. Promiscuity and pornography is popular. Most families are either in debt or living from paycheck to paycheck with little or no money for emergencies. Mental illness now afflicts more than 30% of the population. Legal and illegal drug and legal alcohol abuse is reaching crisis proportions.  About 50% of college and high school graduates can’t find jobs and many continue living with their parents. The national debt is high and rising rapidly with no end in sight. Democrats basically just want bigger government, more spending on costly social programs, higher taxes, and more debt.

 

The establishment media has morphed into a tabloid like press hell bent on destroying the reputations of naysayers and political rivals with insults, name calling, belittlement, ridicule,  humiliation and sometimes even lawsuits. Identity politics is also dominant and shows no signs of decreasing. The media love to stereotype humans, especially if they are not Democrats, and call them racists, Nazis, Islamaphobes, homophobes, misogynists and love to character assassinate humans further with guilt by association, statements taken out of context, and deplatforming which often is a form of unjust censorship.

 

There probably will be no solution for the illegal immigrant invasion with the gradual breakdown of law and order aided by sanctuary cities and leniency on criminals such as a right to vote for felons who have served their sentence in Florida. Bipartisanship is a policy rapidly dying as politics becomes more polarized or divided into intolerant party warfare. The political leadership is corrupt and getting more corrupt and immoral with each passing year. The leadership is not solving economic or social problems but mostly exacerbating them with new legal riders on spending bills to make the system even more problematic and dysfunctional.

 

Traditional conservative social values are moral, coherent family units with financial responsibility, and independent selfsufficiency or selfreliance. This is rapidly being replaced by progressive considerable immorality, tenuous financially irresponsible family units, and dependency on government welfare. The corrupt monied class is growing in wealth as the rest of the population is steadily becoming little more than indentured servants dependent on the government teat.

 

After Trump leaves the presidency it will probably be business as usual with nothing standing in the way of Democratic dominance on into the foreseeable future. Only time will tell whether the future is one of dysfunctional socialism followed by possible ultimate tyranny by an indoctrinated elite who will rule by proclamation without any checks and balances on their power. Yes, first the citizenry will have to be disarmed but that can and ultimately will be done in small stages until any resistance to tyranny will be ruthlessly and violently suppressed.

 

Yes, there is an improbable solution that unfortunately will need political backing. The solution is a smaller more efficient government with fewer laws favoring special interests, a radically reformed educational and welfare system designed to encourage learning of useful knowledge and providing door to door basic welfare assistance to the destitute and also unemployed but no motorized vehicle.

 

I have extensively written in detail about the solutions in my blog and over 17 selfpublished books. If you ever hope to be a leader in government or industry I would highly recommend that you read about my proposed solutions and hope that you will make some of them your own someday and try to disseminate them further.

Yes, real solutions means proposing and passing specific laws regulating education and welfare and the government in general so relevant issues should be proposed and enacted into law and many old laws rescinded or terminated on the local and national level.

Unfortunately the badly informed public just wants to vote for whom they like and vote against whom they hate. We really need statesmanship, which is presently nonexistent, in public office to pass laws which benefit moral financially responsible family units and not big money globalists. What we are getting recently is charlatan politicians who are power hungry and little else. A secular moral code taught to most impressionable young minds, peace, and prosperity towards a greater tomorrow is a laudable goal, if that is still a possibility!

I prefer ending on an optimistic note so I see some hope in pulling society out of a moral free fall into chaos and dissatisfaction. Technology with the help of artificial intelligence, smart robots, and smart audio visual software should become the new moral role models of the future, raising the new generation and taming the emotional beast in most adult humans.

Sustainable technology living in harmony with nature is the semi Utopian future with potentially optimistic results. Yes, oppressive technology is also possible in the form of too much mind control and political correctness extremes but I prefer to view the future with optimism and not the pessimistic future that doomsayers predict will actually occur.

THE TERMINAL DISADVANTAGES OF SOCIALISM!!!

Socialism: a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

This definition of socialism gotten from Google is really a valid form of government for small communities such as communes, a kibbutz, or the Amish and not appropriate for a nation. The Israelis tried kibbutz socialism on a national scale and it was a huge failure since all the kibbutzes complained that they weren’t getting their fair share of tax dollars. So the true definition of socialism should read “regulated by the GOVERNMENT as a whole” and this is really a form of communism with minimal or no personal property ownership.

Pure socialism leads to communism if it is not already communism to begin with but basically socialism in a Democratic Republic means government welfare, control, or the distribution of tax dollars to healthcare, education, shelter, transportation, food, child support, and even work to those subjectively viewed to be worthy of support by the government.

The unemployed and also destitute should have a safety net of government support in their time of greatest need so you could say that limited socialism for the unemployed and also destitute is a necessary thing. For the working population, especially the middle class and wealthy, modified capitalism with Social Security and Medicare is the preferred system of government. I call this Capsocialism and I have explained it in my blog and book GLOBALISM.

There are problems with socialism other than the fact that it is extremely expensive and winds up taxing 60% or more of worker’s income. The biggest problem is that an incentive to work is virtually killed off if all of your basic needs are payed by the government and you can live relatively comfortably off of the government dole.

“Free” healthcare, free education, free shelter, free transportation, free food, and free child support and many women don’t have to work if they have offspring. The government becomes the husband bringing home the money to pay for everything. In effect, there is less of an incentive to work because the rewards are not great enough to work smart and hard and noticeably increase your standard of living.

Pure socialists advocate central planning and ownership of the means of production and distribution by the government. This is disastrous because market pricing information is no longer available and decisions are often made by the seat of the pants without basing it on economic reality of actual cost vs. actual benefit.

Big bureaucratic corporations are highly inefficient and a big bureaucratic government in charge of almost everything is even more inefficient. Big bureaucracies are seldom accountable. They make very poor economic choices and when they make a choice it is usually extremely expensive and usually can be done at less cost by an efficient private for profit business which has competitors.

Central planning by the government was a colossal failure in the Soviet Union, Mao’s China, and more recently in Venezuela. Big power corrupts and big control over the economy means sweet heart deals with big corrupt institutions which suck on the government teat. The long duration destiny of pure socialism and pure communism is bankruptcy due to inefficient stupidity and corruption by bureaucrats.

Humans take better care of personal property that they own rather than communal property which they don’t feel responsible for, especially if they see many other lazy humans benefiting from their hard labor. That in a nutshell is why pure socialism and pure communism fail in the long duration. Humans need personal private property to function responsibly within a nation.

Socialism sucks in the long duration because more and more humans play the system for their own benefit with minimal effort on their part. The few remaining workers with income are taxed to such a high degree that their incentive to continue working is drastically reduced. The whole economy eventually comes to a grinding halt which we could call national bankruptcy where national expenses far exceed the national income.

Economically there is less growth and less entrepreneurial attempts and less competition in modified socialism. This may not be that bad because continuous economic growth on a finite planet results in a devastated environment in the long duration. However, regulating the money supply so there is no inflation or a constant value for money is the financial solution to the problem which no government has the balls to do. It is a global money supply and the big international banks have no interest in zero inflation so no government is currently supporting a zero inflation policy with it’s currency.

Conclusion:

Socialism sometimes works in small communities of about 150 humans who know each other by name and interact frequently. They may have some private property but mostly the efforts or income of the community are usually distributed equally among its members. Lazy humans or slackers are usually frowned upon and peer pressure exerted when needed. A successful small community is usually one where all the members have the same morality and often the same religion.

Socialism does not work in the long duration when run by a big inefficient and corrupt national bureaucracy. It winds up killing the incentive to work for most humans resulting in greater expenses than income. Unless the social setup is radically changed when things get desperate it can lead to national bankruptcy.

A GUARANTEED NATIONAL INCOME PEGGED TO YOUR USEFUL EDUCATIONAL LEVEL!!!

It is a sad fact that college educated students are working in fast food outlets as their first and perhaps last job. The reason is lack of a useful education. The solution is obvious that they need to learn more useful skills in science, math, technology, and computer science to be gainfully employed in the robotized workplace and beyond.

So, graduates in science subjects such as biology, chemistry, physics, and math will be guaranteed a slightly higher basic income even though they are out of work for the time being. The incentivized welfare state will be based on useful educational achievement level which one can get by free audio visual computer internet useful education.

This way there will be an incentive to increase your educational level while on welfare through personally invested time, effort, and achievement.

Problem solved! This is an incentivized welfare system proportional to your useful knowledge achievement. Yes, there may be PHD’s on welfare with perhaps three times the guaranteed annual basic income and unemployed by smart computer software. Their standard of living on welfare will be higher than those without the education achievement or let’s say just high school graduates with the lowest basic guaranteed annual income.

No matter what your age on welfare, you will be able to increase your welfare benefits with further useful education!

Professions with good language skills may also be included such as psychology and business management skills but definitely not philosophy, languages, sociology, music, arts, acting, etc. or basically liberal arts skills. These relatively useless subjective professions may be learned in private institutions of learning but the basic national income for these skills should be the lowest minimum basic guaranteed income.
