I saw an articles recently that talked about how Democrats and Republicans are not only divided, but they have two different worlds.
It is also known that the public education system prepares us for a world that doesn’t even exist. This is why so many college graduates, after spending years in school, have breakdowns and mental health issues when they get out in the real world. If they grew up in the proverbial middle class family, reality will hit them even harder if they were sheltered by material comforts.
My point in this blog post, is why do we assume that something isn’t working just because everyone doesn’t do it?
Christianity (or any religion) fails because it can’t convert the whole world? Maybe not. Maybe the person is disenfranchised with the established church but still trust in the Divine indirectly. Especially since God, Jesus and other names have been changed so many times.
Capitalism is a failure because it didn’t make everyone rich? It doesn’t promised to. It only promised those with capital can enrich themselves. You can live richly with little or no money if you know how.
That’s just the two biggest examples. We view success and the so-called American Dream as being one sided. What if someone’s dream is to live off the land or live in an airstream down by the river?
It’s a big world. There is plenty of room for us to all co-exist and live differently. But different tribes have always fought each other, and even killed each other, because they couldn’t convert each other to their way of life.
The only way to have a peaceful world is to live and let live and respect each other’s decisions, as long as they aren’t hurting anyone. That is the definition of a free society. It’s okay to pursue wealth. It’s okay to be poor as long as you don’t mooch off people and have the wisdom to to know how to survive. In this sense you are not really poor. Just look up how third world countries chose sustainability over capitalism.
The worst thing one can do is create a god that will pronounce judgment on someone who doesn’t live up so certain societal expectations. But apparently we all do this to some degree.
I saw a quote by former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher that said “There is no such thing as society. There are only individuals and families.” Society puts the notion of expectations on us. This can lead to anxiety and depression. We are not promised tomorrow. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do things today that will ensure tomorrow is better.
Why do we push everyone into one category? The world would be boring if we were all the same. Embrace diversity and your own individualism. You don’t have to conform to any status quo. Life is inherently meaningless. We give our own life meaning by pursuing whatever gives us purpose.
What are the two things that man secretly longs for? I’ll give a hint, it is not the things of the world. It is peace and freedom. We slave away for our freedom (the irony of working 70+ hours a week to be free, if you don’t die first). We kill for freedom, which is sometimes true though there is more to war than just fighting for freedom.
The Bible says everything we need is in the Spirit, or Christ or whatever you call it. It is righteousness, joy, and peace, Being lead by the spirit provides all three; knowing your purpose in life is to live in harmony with the Creator, forever and have assurance of a life beyond this one.
I have heard that joy and happiness are not the same thing. Actually joy is true happiness.
the world soars past seven billion people, it is a constant thought on
everyone’s mind as to how we are going to sustain all of these people.
The world is definitely overpopulated. The chief principle in economics
is the theory of scarcity; that is the belief that the world cannot
contain this many people. This leads the vast majority to work hard and
hoard material things while at the same time fearing an economic crash.
are many theories as to how to deal with the mass overpopulation
problem. One idea is to stop making babies. China already limits
households to two children. I can’t help but wonder what happens if a
couple were to have triplets?
Another theory is to start colonizing other planets. Since America is known as the last frontier, many Americans are bored because there is nothing new to discover in this world. This is perhaps why we are so infatuated with space. Is there life on other planets? If not, maybe we should find a way to start colonizing Mars next since there has been water sighted on the red planet.
Migrating to Antarctica?
the global warming theory persists, eventually Antarctica may become
habitable. This is the fifth largest continent and already has tourists
visiting during the warmest parts of the years. What if one day
Antarctica became another country? That would go a long way to easing the burden of living in an overpopulated world.
How would we go about populating Antarctica? One thing that is almost for certain; the global elite would definitely want to establish a bank there. It would probably start with people from all over the world trying to escape oppressive governments and declaring their freedom. Then the global elite would definitely want to invade the territory and establish a bank. This would lead to the Antarctican Revolution and possibly a mass genocide of penguins.
The Real Problem and How to Deal With It
It’s fun to speculate but however it all turns out,
the real problem is overpopulation. People blame the baby boomers for
this problem, but it is actually their frisky parents who came home from
World War Two and started having an average of four children per
the case, the overpopulation may have been a blessing in disguise. The
elite were trying to turn us into robots and then realized there are a
way more of us than there are of them.
Post World War Two generation may have saved our lives by procreating
more humans than they could control. They can either kill all of us or
empower us to provide for ourselves. The latter is the result of the
Internet being released to the public over twenty years ago.
I have heard so much bullshit the past few years that I begin to wonder if maybe earth really is flat. That title should get some attention. My new motto is “stay stupid or play stupid.”
I’m convinced none of the stuff we argue about down here is as important as we make it out to be.
Don’t believe what you hear on the news
Life is not nearly as bad as the advertising driven make it out to be. Most of society’s ills work themselves out in the private sector while most people are too distracted by politics to even notice.
They basically want the free healthcare so they can deal with the stress-induced illnesses caused by politics and their jobs.
Even Chinese people admit they don’t watch the news because these know it’s propaganda. They can’t figure out why Americans do it. And to think I went to college to be a journalist till I realized it was just organized gossip.
Practical reasons not to vote
When people ask me what party I am with, I just tell them I don’t join cults. Capitalism tends to worship money while Democracy worships the state. I heard a congressperson say the nation’s capital was even their temple!
I have no problem voting if there was a candidate that I actually liked. If voting makes a difference anywhere, it’s at the local level. Everything starts at the local level.
The basis for politics
Politics revolves around economics. Most economists are usually conservative or liberal. If there is a libertarian economist they probably have a small following. That is generally how you know something is true.
Come to think of it, most comedians vote democrat. This is probably because those overeducated wimps are so easy to roast. The only thing I can get on Republicans is sexually repressed geriatric humor.
In other news, notice in the last year and a half of the Coronavirus plandenic (not a misspelling) hardly anyone died of natural causes. What a miracle!
Also we are moving into July which is the start of Christmas season (commercially speaking). Less than 200 shopping days till Christmas.
