For those thus concerned, and how it will shake out by Election Day, what the Trump administration did just in the Middle East this past week is enough to win another four years as president. In the context of history, if the previous four years was Trump’s list of Supreme Court Justices which proved to be the safest bet against the mob like Democrat party, then it will be the Trump foreign policies that will win the next four years. Forget all the hype from the media, they are in denial of the very foundations of why what I’m telling you is an irrefutable fact, extending back well over 100,000 years, likely much more. Mankind is in a rebellion against “experts” which is a long time and coming and electing Donald Trump has only proven correct, and there are people who were on the fence the last time who will now be voting for him in greater margins because of this trend. The reason there has not been peace in the Middle East is simply because up to this point, the “experts” have been in charge leaving presidents of the past to follow their advice, hiding the real problems. Most people understand this to be the issue from everything to foreign policy to baking cakes, and they have started to vote differently as a result. And given the choice, they will pick Trump again, which of course has the “experts” terrified, because they have spent their whole lives learning to be experts only to see the world turn against them.
We were watching TV the other night with my grown kids and I was reminding them how many people that were at the top of intellectual circles they had met before they were 10 years old, for instance we were watching Ancient Aliens at the time and the subject was Jonathan Young who was very prominent in the Joseph Campbell Foundation in the 90s. That was why he was so familiar to them because they had met him a long time ago. I also reminded them that they had met and spent quite a lot of time with Jean Erdman who just died this last May at 104 years old. She was Joseph Campbell’s wife. And there were many other top tear philosophers and entertainment professionals that they ran into as children which I always felt would give them great confidence as they moved into adolescence. After all, nobody in their school could claim to meet one celebrity, let alone many of the best who did some really important work behind the curtain. But as I was telling them those stories I was thinking of Trump and how I recognized in him early everything that was happening now, which was good for our world, even if it meant the destruction of liberalism, because my perspective toward existence was anti-expert, and not in support of our entire structure of society which still believed that “experts” should be the foundation of everything.
In truth, and I’ve told this story before, when I was running around with those types of people, I had spent a 10-11-year journey reading everything Joseph Campbell had written and edited. Many of the top minds in the world lay claim to studying the free-thinking Campbell, including many liberals, such as the most recent Health Director of Ohio, Amy Acton. Recently I was reading Ray Dalio’s book called ‘Principles’ where he spent a lot of time talking about how Joseph Campbell changed his life and gave him meaning. Bill Moyers of NPR was also thus enchanted, but I knew a secret about all these people that they had not discovered in Campbell’s work, and that was his embrace and discovery of the destructive nature of institutionalism. It was in fact by the time my kids had met the elderly Erdman and Jonathan Young I was already picking about the works of Friedrich Nietzsche who was questioning the very same things. Adolph Hitler would miss the point of the German philosopher completely when he turned supremacy of thought into an experiment on socialism and would become a villain to planet earth, but that’s how dangerous some of this stuff would be, and clearly is. I would say that with my extra work in the effort and the laborious efforts of working through the James Joyce novel, ‘Finnegan’s Wake’ I came to some unusual ideas about institutionalism and the class of experts that have always been around in society and have done my own work toward the trajectory of mankind. It is surprising what a person can do if they do not care to get credit for the enterprise. I call it ghosting it as far as being an influence leader in many fields of work at the same time.
The entire notion of how humans have put “experts” at the front of social thinking has been wrong, and currently we are taking an eraser to those many centuries of failure. It started with the Scottish Rites in Europe, culminated in the writing of our Constitution which is a work of philosophy, not so much law, and it thus produced out of the minds of a free people percolating over many more centuries, Donald Trump, a free spirit who does not limit his thoughts to the experts, but can use them to his own needs. That is after all the central theme of the debate about Covid-19, will the world be ruled by a class of medical experts, or will they ignore them and move on in life at their own inclinations? Google and Facebook have certainly bet on the experts. They after all think they know better just as Ray Dalio the billionaire investor thinks he knew Joseph Campbell by understanding one of his first books, ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces.’ But he doesn’t know Campbell the way I do, and the pin heads of Silicone Valley don’t either, they only learned the surface stuff. But in truth, Campbell was a conservative anti-institutionalist and that is why no matter how hard they try to understand higher concepts, they always fail, including the ebbs and tides of the 2020 election.
I tend as a result of all this study to look at the whole story of things and with that in mind, our society failed by placing as a priority of education the creation of “experts” in the field. What the world really needs is battle hardened leaders, people like Trump who can think above and beyond the limited advice of experts and are wise due to their own experience. Not to go Biblical, but Trump reminds me a lot of King Solomon, people who are almost unearthly in experience, wealth, and knowledge which is truly the ultimate freedom. To not need “experts” is the path to freedom that Americans have been looking for since the foundation of the country and that is what has liberals going crazy, because they can feel that grip over mankind slipping. Sure, there are still some suckers out there who are stupid, uneducated, and surrender to the whims of their unchecked fears. But the trend is against them for the first time in thousands of years, the trajectory of thought isn’t going the other way. And with all that in mind, nobody but Trump could have brought any notion of peace to the Middle East, because the answers were outside the scope of our experts, which is why it had never happened before, even with all the resources the world could provide. Its good to read lots of books and to function outside the limits of “expert” opinion. Because it is there that we can only say that we are truly free, when we are free of thought away from their tyrannical grasp, and about to think on our own without their thoughts to shape our opinions.
