House Bill 6 in Ohio is a Good Thing–if you want free markets, then provide them

There has been a lot of criticism about the passage of House Bill 6 which is the “Ohio Clean Air Program” because both sides of the political spectrum are missing the point. The bill essentially is a government bail out of the Akron-based First Energy Solutions nuclear power plants. The hippie liberal communist environmentalists don’t like that the bill strips away cash credits for “renewable energy,” such as wind power and solar while raising $200 million per year to cover the costs of the plants as a government heavy highly regulated industry that continues to lose money to the point where they won’t survive past the year 2021.

On the other hand there are the free market capitalists who don’t like that the utility company has donated over $1 million to Republicans to keep fossil fuel energy production alive, where the Obama era administrators sought to kill the industry in 2008 with more government mandates. Given the climate of government intrusion to begin with, and the need for good, reliable energy in Ohio, H.B, 6 further allows for local townships to vote by referendum any wind or solar powered take over of land and other assets to launch their “renewable energy” proposals, meaning the government can’t just decide to put up wind power plants by force. People in local areas would have the right to vote on them, which has the radicals infuriated. But equally infuriated are the capitalist who think that the whole deal is just another example of crony politics, where politicians will do anything for the donor base.

Here’s the deal, and I have been talking about this for a very long time, our utilities companies are monopolies that are directly attached to government management. And they shouldn’t be. If they weren’t “public” utilities then the management burden wouldn’t fall on government to have to solve, and Republicans in Columbus wouldn’t be tasks to bail them out or otherwise watch them fail down the tubes. And if the companies fail, what’s that do to our ability to produce nuclear power? Letting them fail at this point simply isn’t an option. And putting regulatory barriers on that industry just to facilitate hippie energy isn’t going to solve the problem either. What is truly needed in the long term are true free market solutions, which I suggested in Thorium, where every single home could generate their own power off a government regulated grid, kind of like how each home has their own air conditioning units. The technology is there, but government needs to get out of standing in the way of it, and when it does problems like what First Energy Solutions is going through would then become a private problem instead of a government problem. That is where the real issues reside.

The current state reality of energy creation is that it isn’t privatized, which by no coincidence is precisely why the health care industry is going through the same problem. If health care were privatized competition would bring down the expensive medications that are on the market. Government intrusion raises those cost and puts all the power in lobbyists. Until health care is privatized, costs will continue to be high and no easy solution for providing health care to people will be conducive to reality. Energy is hampered by the same restrictions. Power companies are government mandated monopolies, made that way through the incredibly high barriers of entry into the market. Regulator considerations destroy anything but the deepest pocket investors who then look to government to protect their investment. It’s much like the railroad situation at the turn of the 19th to 20th century. Someone had to build all those railroads, then someone had to manage the trains themselves and the people getting on them. Public utilities do great work, but they are expensive, and they are vulnerable to mass outages which hampers so many people because they must maintain and old grid of power supply that is in this present time old and obsolete.

But until we invent a better means of power generation, such as personal Thorium power plants the size of an air conditioning unit on a home for every home in the nation, government is stuck keeping the old dinosaur alive, which is what H.B. 6 in Ohio essentially is. The future of power generation isn’t the government mandates for solar and wind power plants passed down from the communist oriented Obama administration, its in private investment and personal maintenance, such as moving public transportation from the train to a car.

I love camping and always enjoy the sites of an RV park. Sure, while they are stationed in these weekend warrior hideaways, they are plugged in usually into the campground system of power and water maintenance. But in looking at all those great RVs within most of them are generators and tanks that allow them to function independently while traveling along the vast highways of our nation. It is from them that we should be learning how to push technology into each of our homes and businesses with more independent power generation and to get there we need to allow competition into the public utilities, which of course they don’t want, but that is the ultimate solution. We have allowed government to stand in the way of that energy independence so we really shouldn’t complain when they are called on to manage the trouble.

In that regard I completely support the Republican position on H.B. 6 and the Governor DeWine’s reasoning on the matter. They are dealing with dinosaur technology to supply the energy needs for a sustainable Ohio. The goal thankfully isn’t to pander to the flimsy hopes of the environmental terrorists, or the communist desires to destroy capitalism in the United States through heavy regulations tied to the backs of “Green Energy” but to deal with the two nuclear power plants that we do have, which have already cost a lot of money and do employ a lot of people. We need to use the energy we do have to bridge us into a 21st century solution. Likely the utility companies won’t like that solution but that is a bridge to cross when we get there. But we do need to get there.

Independent energy has to be the answer for the future, and free market competition to bring down the costs. Government needs to be out of all these economic transactions so that real free market solutions can come about, just like it did when the telephone utilities were deregulated. That is how the cell phone came about. Imagine what would happen if utilities were deregulated to allow for new methods of power generation to emerge. It amazes me how good some of the RV power generation innovations are these days. Imagine what it would look like if every home in the nation had their own source of power. Think of the lack of destructive impact to any economy that happens during every major storm where power grids get knocked out and hundreds of thousands of people are out of power for days, putting many people at risk. The option could be that every home treated their power supply like they do their air conditioners or heating services. A few downed trees wouldn’t kill the power for several neighborhoods. Instead one or two homes might be affected who could solve their problem with a simple service call from a competitive repair person. If we really want free market conditions, then let’s get government out of the utilities market and put them in the hands of the private sector.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters was a Fun Movie, but had terrible, communist politics from the Wanda Group

We are supposed to function under the assumption that politics and entertainment are separate, and that we shouldn’t talk about politics. Yet, with the last two Legendary Entertainment monster film releases, first Kong: Skull Island and now this 2019 release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters the films are about nothing less than communist propaganda which is to be expected after Legendary was bought up by the Chinese Wanda Group in 2016. In the case of this second Godzilla film, Warner Bros. distributed the film, but the contents were clearly guided by the Wanda Group and that is the way things are now in Hollywood. When it is wondered why the American domestic box office was less excited about this monster movie entry than the 2014 predecessor it is due to the massive amount of subtle collectivist propaganda contained within it. I actually lost count of how many times western culture was body slammed in the new Godzilla film and Eastern cultures propped up. So, it should be expected that the domestic total would be less than the original. I thought the Eastern collectivist rants in Kong were bad, this new Godzilla was much worse.

That’s not to say that Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a bad movie. I enjoyed it immensely. As a conservative who loves movies, I am used to not having representation in Hollywood. I enjoyed the movie for what it was, and there were some great ideas. But the politics of the movie couldn’t be ignored. It was very much the star of the show. The theme of the movie was that Eastern understandings of dragons and monsters are that society is to take their rightful place in a kind of harmony with them. Meanwhile the West always intends to slay them. The message was quite clear, East good, West bad. We are supposed to learn to live in subservience to nature not to master it. And Godzilla was a force of nature that was to be worshipped like a God.

Then again, the villains of the movie were all environmental wackos who wanted to unleash all the monsters of the world to kill off humanity and to restore nature back into balance. The film also made an argument against that type of extremism which was interesting. It reminded me of the current Chinese difficulty of accepting Hong Kong capitalism but still holding on to the premise of communism. This Godzilla film was very much a product of Chinese politics, which is to say, a mess of ideas made under the thumbprint of a very authoritarian government. The ignorance of a blissful coexistence with authoritarian regimes and nature continues to be a problem with China and their movies reflect that problem.

Back in 2014 the Godzilla film then earned around $90 million domestically during its opening weekend. This movie made only $49 million. That is a consistent decline since Kong: Skull Island headed on that downward spiral after the Wanda Group bought up Legendary. Kong was also permeated with this promotion that the hostile indigenous people of Kong’s island were no longer deranged lunatics as they had been portrayed in the past, but now they were more advanced than the science of the Western world who were portrayed as greedy and doomed to failure. Monsters like Kong and Godzilla of course are part of an older than civilization intelligence and they watch over us as if we were all pets being guarded the way we would a hamster in a cage.

With those thoughts aside, some of the best moments for me in the new Godzilla film is the confirmation that more and more, we are accepting that ancient Egypt and the Mesopotamian Valley are not the oldest cultures on earth. Our story tellers are now routinely examining much older possible origins for the human race and that is a good thing, so its not all bad in these movies, so long as you don’t care about any of the people, because they are all pretty stupid. And that held true for the original monster movies from Japan. We didn’t watch those movies for the people, but only for the monsters, and that makes these movies fun. But the politics was very distracting, and I would say that it really hurts the domestic box office in North America.

I’ll have to say that the special effects in these monster movies are so much better than the originals and they are a lot of fun if you don’t take them too seriously. But it was hard for me to turn my brain off and enjoy the monsters because the politics of Godzilla and the communist ways of China were so over-the-top. The story of symbiotic relationships after a half hour was really getting on my nerves and that is exactly the kind of thing that is hurting these films at the box office. Honestly, I want to see the next Godzilla movie about the epic fight with King Kong do well, but the films are performing well under what market predictions would have expected, largely because the films aren’t fun enough due to all the political utterances. This is what happens when we let foreign companies take over American media outlets and start bringing their dumb ideas into our culture. The movies would do great if the monsters just destroyed communist civilization and the world would be much more interested because communism to the minds of all human beings represents tyranny, and a lack of freedom of thought. Not to live in symbiosis with them, which was, and continues to be the subtle message of all these films. The “state” (Godzilla is more powerful than you. Learn to live with that power, not against it).

That is also why the mixed messages of Godzilla seeking to recover from injuries in this most recent movie at an ancient temple at the bottom of the ocean was so compelling, because even as the messages of the movie are submission to nature, Godzilla sought healing and refuge at the temple of an ancient culture that has long since died away, following the Vico Cycle that I’m always talking about. It is actually in human creation that anything happens, even for these monsters, and that is the message that the Wanda Group is continuing to miss, because they aren’t just telling a story, they are trying to propagandize their form of government and using all these cool monsters to do it.

But American audiences can smell a rat, and they weren’t in a hurry to go see a movie about communist propaganda. People like me go see the films to see great monsters battle it out and create mass carnage. But nobody wants to sit through over two hours of a communist lecture about how the world would be so much better if the West would only fall and be eaten by a bunch of 300-foot-tall creatures from the ancient past. Even though such a thing is a fantasy for the East their childish understanding about the ways of the world can’t even be buried behind the visual spectacle of the giant monsters themselves. And ultimately that is the reason Godzilla: King of the Monsters didn’t perform well at the box office. It may do well in China, but American markets see through the veil, and it certainly hurt a film that was otherwise a lot of fun and worth the money.

Ambition and Hope on Full Display

There was a lot going on with the Disneyland opening of the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land expansion this past weekend. During the opening ceremony Thursday night many of the actors from the Star Wars movies were there with George Lucas and Bob Iger to stand in front of the Millennium Falcon and open the place officially to fans, and the event was something to behold, even if viewers were not really keen on science fiction or movies in general. I am a fan and I see great possibilities for this new Disney land expansion which puts as its own kind of Cinderella castle the Millennium Falcon that so many people were emotional about. Which brings me to the question that deserves an answer, why? Why does the opening of a place like this and the full-sized star ships that previously had only been little models that we could see in a museum provoke such an intense emotional response?

I include below a picture of my Craftsman tool box that I’ve had for a vey long time. It looks now pretty much the way when I first got it which was a big deal for me. As I’ve told the story a few different times about my twenties and how difficult they were. Life was trying to turn me into ground beef and I was pushing myself to be a fine steak so that collision was intense. Given some of the challenges I thought it was an amazing achievement to get that tool box and the tools in it and to work at Cincinnati Milacron back when it as a big place to work in Oakley, Ohio. And to work there I had to have tools to make my living with. Most of the guys who worked with me were very much older than I was and they all had fancy tool boxes too, it was sort of a rite of passage thing and they always decorated their tool boxes with pictures of girls, and cars they either wanted or had restored, something that made them happy.

So my version of decorating my own tool box is seen in that picture, they are things I wanted most at that time and I have kept it that way just to remind myself from time to time. And featured prominently there is of course the Millennium Falcon from the movies being built at Elstree Studios in London. I always thought it would be incredible to see that ship up close, and obviously many thousands of others, even millions felt as strongly about that as I did. But why? After all, and this has become the theme of the entire Star Wars series, it was a pirate ship in the stories, the home of a couple of smugglers. So why was the Millennium Falcon such a fan favorite? I can only say that for me, it was always a symbol of hope and when things were especially dark in my life, and extremely difficult, I would think about that ship and what it would be like to build one in real life that you could actually touch and maybe even fly.

Well, I wasn’t the only one, as could be seen in the videos contained in this article. For me the Millennium Falcon has always stood for overcoming obstacles. I don’t think that was intentional on the part of George Lucas when he created the concepts for all this stuff, but it has certainly evolved that way and obviously Disney has realized this after a few years of trial and errors after they purchased the property from Lucas way back in 2012. All this time I have been saying how important culturally opening up this Galaxy’s Edge park would be and now here it is. Putting the Millennium Falcon center stage as a full-sized prop to symbolize everything the place stands for is pretty incredible. For me it fulfills something I’ve been thinking about most of my life, its certainly nothing I ever expected to see. But there it is.

I have not been a fan of the more progressive elements that Disney has brought to their ownership of the Star Wars stories. For a while they were really blowing it, but they have listened to some extent and are correcting course I think in a positive direction. Disney after all is a very capitalist company even though they try to appease the radical left with sentiment to keep them off their backs as a very large corporation that has one objective, to make money. So no matter what their objectives or political beliefs are as a company, to tell the stories people want to see, they have had to stick with the formula that works. And that formula is present in the Millennium Falcon, a pirate ship that is at the center of a rebellion against tyranny and big government that was brought to life by a couple of smugglers who were outlaws. Han Solo, the character, was not fighting for others, he was not putting the world before himself, he was very much an Ayn Rand type of character and over time became the fan favorite that has defined everything that Star Wars is to people, a concept of hope and resilience. And that is why Disney put the Millennium Falcon front and center in their new theme park expansion.

There is a lot more going on at Galaxy’s Edge. I think the impact to visitors is going to be tremendous. Mythically speaking I see that something different happened with Star Wars that hasn’t yet happened anywhere on earth previously and for the first-time human beings have an emotional vehicle that is finally breaking the Vico Cycle. I am certain that was the intent of George Lucas because for a while he was one of the Board of Directors for the Joseph Campbell Foundation which I was very proud to be a member during those same tough twenties. I was a very young man hanging out with some very smart movers and shakers and I’ll never forget what I learned in those years. Myth helps people deal with the world around them and Star Wars was always intended to be a powerful mythology. But I never expected this kind of Star Wars land. Looking at the faces of the people visiting for the first time reflects my own sentiments. But its not the props themselves, its in seeing a mythology come alive that people can interact with and where that goes is very much up in the air. How many new scientist, artists and great thinkers are being born while visiting such a place? I personally think a lot. The people who built Galaxy’s Edge obviously loved Star Wars and were like me, wanted very much to touch and feel something that was only made good by the special effects in movies. But now many of those elements are a physical reality. What excites me is to contemplate what happens next. How many young people will visit this world and grow into a drive to take the next step, whatever that is. Honestly, I think commercial space travel just become much more of a reality than ever before because people can see and touch a concept that will therefor generate a reality that is much better than what we’ve had, and that is a beautiful thing. Who wouldn’t want to fly routinely to Mars and the moons of Jupiter if only they could travel in something like the Millennium Falcon? Sure, it may not travel and move just like the ship in the movie, we probably have about 10,000 years of evolution before something like that is possible, but it’s a start.

More Government Employees Failing where Guns are the Real Solution

Here’s what I get tired of hearing about when it comes to these mass shootings, they most of the time are caused by some institutional failure but are then opportunities for descriptions of heroics by that same institutional failure. All the while, the moment that a gun is involved in anything, before the facts were even published politicians like Bernie Sanders started talking about why we need even more institutional regulation to protect us from some unknown menace. This is of course regarding the latest shooting incident, this time at Virginia Beach by a long-time public utilities employee who had access to a building and opened fire on 12 innocent people and injured many others. Why he did what he did likely has something to do with government’s failure in the workplace. Members of government engaged in a shoot-out with the guy who was shot. Government employees administered First Aid to try to save him, but the shooter died of his injuries. And Bernie Sanders within just a few hours wanted more gun control without even knowing the specifics of the case, and was demonizing the NRA.

By the way it all sounded, from the knuckle dragging antics of the shooter to the police on the scene it came across like an episode of the Keystone Cops and more people died as a result. The police were supposed to have a shoot out with an attacker, its part of the job just as a fry guy at a fast food restaurant is supposed to drop fries when an order comes in until the timer goes off. Shooting at people or processing fries are all part of jobs that are out there, but you can tell that when the police start bragging about their “heroics” that government is essentially trying to keep the public in believing more government action instead of dealing with the real problem, like why the gunman wanted to shoot at people in the first place. After all, that is the only motive that matters.

Personally, I don’t trust government employees of any kind to resolve those kinds of problems, because the systems they function from are not fast enough. Military and police departments are often too late and make decisions way behind the curb of needed action because of their command structure. I get the need for police to be there to keep some sort of structure present, which does prevent more of these kinds of events, but they are certainly not the cure all for violence. In this case and in many others, the real solution to gun violence is of course to have more concealed carry holders present who could have taken that shooter out in seconds rather than minutes. And to do that the NRA should be listened to and counseled by government because they are the real professions with a solution, not socialist losers like Bernie Sanders. The NRA knows a lot more about gun handling and in using them for defense than all these government employees that are all at the center of many of these mass shootings.

Whether we are talking about school shootings or public breakdowns like the one at Virginia Beach by Dewayne Craddock—or even going back to the Vegas shooting, the 9/11 terrorist incident, or the San Bernardino massacre that the FBI allowed the media to destroy the scene of the crime for who knows what reason, more trust in more government is the dumbest thing anyone could propose. Often, they are slow to get where the danger is, and when they do get there the body count is higher because for them its just a job, like those idiots at the Parkland school shooting in Florida where the police had gotten used to a pampered lifestyle and driving really nice squad cars. When the bullets started flying, they were hiding and looking for every excuse in the world not to engage. The NRA has much better solutions to those types of matters then the government who fails to act when needed, as fast as they are needed, and also failure to properly understand why shootings occur at all.

But to insist that guns be kept away from the public and that our safety and security be put completely in the hands of the government, whether it’s the local, state or federal level is preposterous. Likely when shootings happen there is always some lunatic out there working for government that will have access to guns while the rest of us don’t, and they statistically are the ones we should be watching the closest. When one of them snaps due to some emotional problem we certainly don’t want to be at their mercy, which was the very first thing that liberal politicians proposed after the Virginia shooting. The real villain will likely be some medication either legal or illegal that set off an emotional imbalance which is what we should always first be looking at. Its too early to tell in this latest case, but marijuana is a common factor in many of the mass killing incidents especially in cases like the Boston Bombers and the shooter in the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida a few years ago. The gun is just a tool that losers use to kill other people. The desire to kill other people is the real problem, and government doesn’t have a solution to that because in most cases they look to drug sales to generate vast amounts of tax revenue for their unionized work demands so they don’t really want a real solution. They just want to talk about their long gun battles and their administering of First Aid at the scene of a crime. They don’t really want to solve the problem because they are part of it.

The proposal for citizen gun ownership and carrying them in public is to keep the solution closer to the problems and not expecting to expand government to deal with every little tragedy. In the building at Virginia Beach where this shooting occurred should have been other employees who could have shot the shooter within 30 seconds instead of a half an hour. Fewer people would have been injured and killed. Instead a place like that had metal detectors to keep guns out of people’s hands making it a gun free zone, and an easy target for some deranged lunatic which always pushes up the body count. So why would anybody propose more government control when it was government rules, procedures, and impediments that actually cause the death toll to be as high as it was? Because nobody on the government side of things wants to admit that they can’t detect lunacy in people and to stop them before they become a menace to society, and that when tragedy does strike that they are too late to do anything about it. For the rest of us who without guns, are all potential victims to the stupidity of government employees who are much more concerned about their pensions then running into gunfire to cut minutes off the clock of terror while innocent people are bleeding out waiting for help.

Carrying guns and shooting back when danger presents itself isn’t for everyone. But it is for those who are most prone to use them to save innocent people when the call for it is needed. This case in Virginia Beach is no different. If there had been good guys with a gun there to stop the bad government employee with a gun, then a lot more people would have gone home on that sad Friday afternoon. But unfortunately, that wasn’t the case and many more people died. Then, rather than dealing with why it happened the political class immediately went to more government power by taking away guns and putting more trust into their systematic approach that obviously never works. It’s also why it keeps happening.

Sex and Socialism

This is a complicated concept, but one that requires a dedicated analysis. I wouldn’t say that there was a master plan to use sex to sell socialism, but it was a biological conclusion that even the most dysfunctional socialist minded person could embrace without a formal plan. So it was an easy thing for liberals to cling to in order to achieve their ultimate objective. The plan was from the beginning of the socialist incursion into North America to use sex to break down our natural resistance to the concept and the trade off would be to satisfy our needs for sex by making it easier for us to achieve it. Then of course once we accepted the easy sex in our society, they we would of course accept other easy methods of doing things that were collective in nature resulting of course into a socialist society that would eventually embrace larger government expansion as a centralized authority.

Personally, it never made sense to me why public schools even back in my day were so obsessed with sex education. I remember in my health classes that the teachers were very open about using condoms and talking to partners about sex. Their platform was that crazy kids were going to have sex and since our parents weren’t teaching us about it that they had an obligation to do so themselves. Of course, in hindsight we will recognize what was going on, it was one of those “government knows best” moments where the government schools possessed forbidden knowledge that parents weren’t providing and that like the witch in Snow White, lured us all to a diseased life by encouraging us to eat from the poisoned apple.

I really learned a lot about this whole system when I was in my late twenties and my wife was a volunteer in the Mason school system. My oldest daughter was in the fourth grade and we were given a permission slip to sign. My daughter’s health class wanted to teach the very young students how to put on a condom using a dildo as the prop. Well of course we said absolutely not. My kids weren’t even close to being interested in that kind of thing and when they were, we would handle it as a family. I thought that would be the end of the story. What happened next absolutely shocked me.

The school system actually black listed us, they immediately rejected my wife’s volunteer activities at the school and the teachers who had been very friendly to her suddenly became almost ANTIFA like activists. My wife complained and that only made things worse and pretty soon there were kids and teachers following my kids around school applying a lot of peer pressure to put fear of compliance into them to either break from our position or to actually leave the school. Well that made me very angry and my wife was already there so we had to pull the kids out of school and home school them for a while because the experience of going to school was so terrible. And it was all over us not filling out a permission slip for teaching kids to put condoms on a dildo in the fourth grade.

Of course, things are much worse now, and our culture shows it clearly. Sex is nothing like it was when I was in school. The thrill of the chase is pretty much eradicated. Young boys expect young girls to give away sex without much effort and that has really destroyed the game of sex, and created an environment where those young people are now very accepting to socialism. As we all know the game of the sexes, of the basic birds and the bees has unsaid rules. Boys are attracted to visual sign stimuli. Even if you look like the ass of a baboon if you are a boy, you can still get a hot chick if you are a star athlete or end up in some other peer group that indicates that you will be successful one day and achieve financial wealth. Hot chicks learn very early that they have something boys want so they can use sex to gain access to material needs that are better than what other girls get. This system is what the political left was targeting with the idea of free sex. The idea was to get rid of value judgments, pretty girls, ugly girls, ambitious boys and pimple faced losers were all tossed into a big pot and offered marijuana inspired hippie sex with anyone and everyone so that nobody owned anybody and that like a public toilet or a water fountain, sex had the values removed from it so that the basics were enjoyed and that the values that made young boys want to work harder to have sex with better looking girls was removed, and that was a clear shot at capitalism.

I learned all this first hand of course, I have always known liberals. I was never one, but there was a time and continues to be where they want something from me, so I get these invites into their social gatherings. One such couple that I knew lived in downtown Cincinnati overlooking the hill off Clifton down into the city. They all had friends who lived along that ridge and for many reasons they were all very liberal. Most of them had university jobs or worked for the government down into the city, this couple was in entertainment and architecture. I had in fact hired the husband who was my architect for a while. The wife, who had a tendency to be nude all the time, even around other people was the director for a play at the Taft Theater for the very controversial Equus which featured not only complete nudity live in front of everyone, but actual sex on stage. When I saw it, I thought it was astonishingly disrespectful of the values of Cincinnati, Ohio. I saw the play as an attack on American values, even back then. A few years before that play my wife and I had both contemplated careers in modeling. She much more than me, but we both heard often the diatribes about how conservative Cincinnati was and that if we wanted to do modeling that we’d need to move to markets that supported more nudity because that was what it was going to take to be successful. My wife was 17 at the time, and I was 18. Clearly that wasn’t for us. So with that backstory and meeting the director of that play through my architect I learned more than I ever wanted to know about the nature of liberalism when I attended a few of their parties. They were very loose sexually. They loved their drugs and they despised human morality. They considered nature to be superior. Values were man made so they thought they should all be abandoned in favor of nature worship which is why that lady was always more nude than dressed.

These opinions of mine don’t come from any other source than first hand experience. Sex is the gateway drug for minds to begin to accept socialism. And that plan has been there for many years and if you want to know the truth about Russian interference in our elections and culture, the real problem was in the 1950s and 60s when the KGB actually injected moles into our society to undo it, and the hippie movement was the direct result, which we still see today. And they infiltrated our government schools with a desire to teach socialism and the means they intended to make it happen was to take away the value judgments of sex so that anybody could have sex with anybody else, and once that was complete, then we’d accept other reduced value judgments.

I think my wife and I were lucky to have had such rigorous standards of living. It certainly wasn’t easy. I would say that if Everest is considered one of the hardest mountains to climb in the world that holding some of the values we have as a family over the years was like climbing 30 Mount Everest stacked on top of each other nearly into space. And there were lots of times that we ran out of air or slipped on the ice. But we made it through the gauntlet and lived to tell about it with the same values toward things that we had initially. Also, it allowed me to see clearly now how we arrived where we are and to understand how to fix it. And before you can fix it, you have to know what the problem is. Valueless sex, which was brought to the United States by the KGB and injected like a drug into our public education system was meant to open the door to all this liberalism and to have it destroy American capitalism, because nobody in the world could compete with it. The damage is quite clear now in 2019. But we can’t accept that reality, and instead, need to go back to value judgments for the good of the human race, which of course nobody is interested in preserving from the political affiliation of liberalism.

Mama, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow up to be Weak Losers

This isn’t new news but maybe very timely as of now. An academic study of 171 men looking at their height, weight, overall physical strength and bicep circumference while also analyzing their views on redistribution of wealth found that weaker men are far more likely to favor socialist politics than stronger men. I mean that makes sense. Weak people obviously don’t feel inclined toward the competition of capitalism because they figure they won’t be able to compete, so they like the idea of a strong central government protecting them and giving them resources that they aren’t strong enough to get for themselves. And to be fair, women do favor many of those same socialist policies because they have learned to accept that men are stronger and they are less able to be physically forceful to get what they need in life. Weak men and feminist types who need to tip the scales in their favor support the idea of a big central government to help them have a shake in life toward what they consider fair. You can read the article for yourself below:

Physically Weak Males More Likely To Favor Socialist Policies, Study Finds

Most of the Republicans I know are what weak people would consider tough guys so the differences of political ideology truly does come down to physicality and experience with self-confidence. For instance, I do favor capitalism because I know I can do well in life with it, because I’m not afraid to compete with anybody, and I think that the path to true freedom is that everyone should feel the same way. That is why it is great to master some kind of weapon in life, so that a person can realize the freedom of their own defense and not fear for their life with every bolt of lighting that streaks across the sky. Not everyone can be the best at everything. So for the timid types, I think we can all sympathize with their anxiety. For those of us free of such concerns, the idea of a central government or socialism of any kind is reprehensible because we have the skills to do for ourselves and not everyone comes out of the box so prepared.

I would say I spend a significant amount of my life trying to help people learn to be more courageous I certainly don’t have an interest in being the strongest, fastest, and most dominant person on the block or in a city. Rather I’d like to teach people to be self-sustaining and to have the means of always defeating any bully any time and place and of all shapes and sizes so that they can enjoy that freedom for themselves because ultimately if they arrive into adulthood scared of everything, they will essentially vote for more big government to protect them which then hinders lifestyles like mine that want the most value. I would also consider strong people as the ones who advance society forward, because when people aren’t so worried about avoiding every little danger, they are inventing new things and building up industry which is needed for economic expansion. Some stringy haired hippie socialist wearing a tie dye shirt with a peace symbol on it isn’t typically going to be doing much of anything productive so those lifestyles should be avoided. But if such people do step forward, they should not limit the actions of the strong because it is the strong that protects other people truly, whether its their families, their friends and neighbors, or even their city. It is better to teach a weak person to be strong, but it is very bad to convince a strong person to give away their power to allow weak people to be equal.

And that is what is expected with socialism and why it never works in any place its ever been tried. There is a little socialism in every safety regulation, every compliance requirement and its been a very bad trend. What we need more of is not more regulations and reminders that government is the biggest, strongest entity that there is and everyone should be required to yield to it. We need more people to yearn to be stronger and for strong people to help teach them how to get there. We need the opposite of what we have been getting and the real trouble that has occurred is that too many people have just been emasculated from birth into essentially becoming pussies. And we all know what the purpose of pussies are. Not a good strategic position for anybody.

I think everyone has an opportunity to find some strength in themselves toward the freedom of self-reliance. The trouble is usually not the physical attribute of being strong, it’s in the laziness of the people who are weak that makes them that way. We used to have a society that encouraged in men to be strong and we passed judgments against them when they embraced their weaknesses and didn’t yearn to be stronger. For some people courage is hard, and some it comes easily. It really comes down to the kinds of things that people think about that makes them one way or another. However, in our culture now, the strong are chastised and the weak embraced so there is no incentive for the weak to modify their handicap and to learn to be courageous and strong if not physically, but mentally. The PC culture of our times has not helped advance mankind, it is hindering it into a regressive state.

The truth of the matter is that we should encourage everyone to be strong, even those who are small in stature or don’t have big biceps. There are many kinds of courage and we should always work to inspire those attributes in people no matter what sex they are, what size they are or what color. I’ve seen little people who aren’t afraid of anything. If you told them they could wrestle a Silver Back Gorilla to the ground, they would find a way to do it. And those kinds of people would likely be Republicans and fearless. But grown men who put on dresses and yearn to act like girls are just abortions to everything that being human should be. And any political system that embraces such a weakness is a detriment to the human race, which is quite a bit more serious than just political ideology. A yearning to make the world more fair, and more safe produces losers who would rather embrace socialism so that they could avoid any kind of fight for survival which is essential to human beings’ needing to continue advancing in life. Its ultimately that yearning that built skyscrapers and highways across North America and drove us to explore space through the early days of aviation. You don’t have to be strong and big to be bold and fearless. You simply have to learn what you have to work with and to maximize its potential. Being weak is a choice. Not a born trait. It can be overcome rather easily, and it is essential that we all do. The sure way to end the line of human beings is to allow them to build up their governments into an almighty, ever cautious parent who insists on safety over courage and a slow descent into the abyss of complacency and ultimately a terminal existence. There are far worse things in life than getting hurt from a long fall, or a cut hand—its in becoming scared of everything then seeking as adults to vote for larger governments to conceal their neurosis due to their perpetual anxieties.

Why “A State of Urgency” is not a Bad Thing

I found it alarming recently that the phrase “state of urgency” was one of the banned terms of the new liberalism. But it really isn’t new, the concept of having a judge free existence has been around for a while now and it has pretty much destroyed everything it has touched, and any kind of state of urgency is considered an offensive judgement because it understands that to have urgency toward anything, that someone has a value judgement about something. As I have said more and more, especially lately, I have been around for a long time. That’s important because I remember what it was like before. Even though these liberal euphemisms have been around for even longer, our culture largely rejected the concepts, except for the most recent stringy haired hippies and grunge rock losers.

The theme of our colleges and public schools has in fact been to embrace this no judgment culture and throwing out terms like “state of urgency” has been part of their defining characteristics of an educated culture. There are many more terms that have been banned from our education system and most of them involve any kind of personal value judgment and favors collective morality and the impact has been obvious. Unlike in years past where personal accountability was stressed even in public schools, the temperament of our day is that nobody is responsible for anything and that things will happen when they do and that we should all yield to them in favor of collective opinion. Therefor, how could we have have a state of emergency for anything because the roots of the judgment come from an individual need. And individuals are not to be trusted, only state sponsored endeavors that are “democratically” organized are to have any merit.

Personally, I can see these effects every day, after a couple of decades of this type of thinking it has ruined many people and their ability to do things because the culture they are interacting with is running from responsibility instead of toward it. It is especially noticeable in the United State where workers have yielded to the pressure of lacking performance and instead embraced a culture that hates Mondays, looks toward Wednesday as “hump day” as if a week represented some sort of decline back toward their weekends of not having to live with any kind of expectations. And of course there is Friday, which for most people means their work week is over and they get to reclaim their personal time once again. Our education system has advanced this kind of thinking purposely to inspire a diminished expectation in our capitalist culture which they of course hope brings our economy to its knees. God forbid that more individuals get rich with good ol’ fashioned hard work. Allowing individuals to have more or to do more than others is a socialists dream of a utopian existence.

On any given day you can see the impact, anywhere in the world. Gone from the minds of the many are the concerns of productivity. What has replaced that former expectation has been an emphasis on complacency and rudderless leadership. The only place that a “state of urgency” has been allowed to reside in our earthbound cultures has been in sports where a timer judges who wins and loses in the world based on who has the most points at the end of the game. More and more we have cultures who view timers as something to reset if they miss their target objectives since for over two decades, they have learned that the timers in our lives mean nothing. There shouldn’t ever be a “state of urgency” because there is no game to win. There is no competition. There are only weekends and massive amounts of empty space to fill with a servitude toward collectivism.

The report that I gave yesterday of where Americans on average are bored 131 days per year, or otherwise stated, 36% of their lives is a disgusting number. It is a direct reflection of our education system not inspiring people to do good things with their lives but in clipping their wings starting with their intellects in favor of a collective based society that puts everyone on equal footing, and making sure that judgements do draw lines between people as is our natural instincts. It’s not about skin color or the sexes that the political left is trying to make equal, their real target has always been and continues to be the productive against the unproductive. If they can take away the treasures of ambition and push everyone into a big government addiction, then their philosophy will then grow and socialism will become the norm. By stating that “a state of urgency” is a bad thing to think about, then competition will slip away between human beings and complacency will permeate our existence. The goal is to clip all our wings and surrender to the needs of the many, which is to accept a loser state of existence. After all the best way to take away the incentive to be the best that you can be is to take away the benefits of doing so leaving behind husks of a human body vacant of thought and action.

Of course, like any state authorized imposition it has had the opposite effect. While people do tend to avoid social stigmas, they have taken the need for competition underground where “a state of urgency” is living well in the video game culture. I was watching one of my grandsons playing Fortnite the other day and given how popular that game is, it tells me that people are running from government and onto the online video game world where competition is alive and well. Sadly, this has separated people from their necessity to be productive and pushed that level of competition into their leisure time exacerbating the problem, not helping it. But the need for competition and the challenge of managing “states of urgency” are quite alive and well in people. We just aren’t seeing it in our jobs and political existence like we did even a few years ago.

When I was growing up people were called bums who didn’t work hard and even attempt to play at a productive life. People who ran from their responsibilities were called losers, which is still my term for them. I see that things worked much better then than they do now and that is a judgment based on more than reflections of the good ol’ days where an older person thinks their way of life is better than a present one. In this case it is literally the truth. Too many people have allowed the politics of our day to clip their intellectual wings and accept a mundane existence and it is repulsive that we’ve allowed that political strategy to sink roots in our cultural expectations. And the primary mode of attack has come from our education system informing our youth that time is never of the essence, that competition is a very negative thing unless it comes from team sports, or otherwise in service to the state. Individual goals are to be avoided because they emphasize choosing those values of the votes of the many, the opinions of the losers, and ambitions of the lazy.
