The following statement from Mark Thornton about the Drug War…and the incarceration of innocent men and women ought to make your blood boil.
“Federal prisons are renting out their prison populations to large American corporations for pennies on the dollar as cheap labor pools.
This diabolical practice not only spreads the benefits of continuing marijuana prohibition to large American corporations, but it also handicaps smaller businesses that are trying to compete. Ventura (Jesse Ventura) names Whole Foods, Walmart, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, BP, Starbucks, Eddie Bauer, Wendy’s, McDonald’s, and Victoria’s Secret as all being implicated in this scheme. The inmates are paid 0 to $1 per hour, they are required by law to work, and the corporations that hire them receive their slave labor and a $2,400 tax credit per inmate.”

What generates more fear than a tyrannical, abusive government? Not much except maybe death through the violent acts of man or nature. Of course, governments create instant death…or a painful, prolonged death through one of their favorite activities we call war. You Master the Social Maze by discovering methods to diminish the effects of fear.
A monstrous problem facing most men and women…is the unhappy fact the Elite and their Soldiers use fear as a way to keep them forever stuck in the Hive Mind Mentality. A person paralyzed by fear finds it difficult to deal with the challenges of life. In order to make sure you’re productive enough to keep the Elite’s evil agenda going…its members feed you plenty of diversions such as Reality TV, sports extravaganzas and a wide range of other short-term pleasures.

You probably know…the political and financial establishment seems to purposely march us down the dark road of economic destruction. Because of this unhappy fact, it occurred to me that maybe we should offer you some hope for every day living…especially since continuous economic mayhem is inevitable. We may not be able to do anything about the treachery of the establishment…but we definitely possess the means to overcome the negative thinking and debilitating pessimism of the Hive Mind Mentality.
In Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s marvelous book Fooled By Randomness he suggests that a negative pang (event) has an average of a 2.5 more intensity than a positive pang (event). If this is true, it’s no wonder that the Social Maze pollutes people’s lives with pain and suffering. Continue reading “Illusions of the Hive Mind Mentality”
The Elite’s Economic Quacks make their living by espousing the party line. For example, Paul Krugman lamely responded to the meltdowns by arguing…there’s “too much austerity” even as debt loads keeps rising every year. We gotta keep refilling the punch bowl with Quantitative Easing (QE) and Zero Interest Rate Policy (ZIRP). It appears that getting drunk on economic illusions might be quite stimulating.

As mentioned in a Special Edition article, October 6, 2016…gold and silver got whacked. Except for an election result bounce…the slide continued. You may wonder whether it was natural market forces due to buyers and sellers subjective values…or a conspiracy of the Elite to beat down the price of precious metals.
Update: Since the beginning of the 2017…the trend has reversed. Subjective values change…the war on gold and silver will fail. As of Saturday, February 25, 2017 gold is $1257 per oz. and silver $18.34.
Federal Reserve System
Obviously, Federal Reserve Policy influences market phenomena. One of the negative consequences of their “Quack” monetary policies is the transfer of wealth from Main Street to Wall Street. Now, I can almost hear your mind say “Yes! This definitely seems to be a conspiracy to rip us off. Man, those Elites are some evil bastards.” Continue reading “Gold and Silver Plunge Ends”
Does conspiracy theory come from the minds of crackpots…or does it possess some validity?
Before we attempt to answer the question…let’s hear from Doug Casey, Founder – Casey Research.
“The CFR is one of about a dozen groups, like Bilderberg, Bohemian Grove, and Davos, where the self-identified elite gather.
These groups don’t have political power, per se. But their members are members of governments, large corporations, universities, the military, and the media. They all went to the same schools, belong to the same clubs, socialize together and, most important, share the same worldview. What might that be? They believe in the State—not the market—as the best way to organize the world.” Continue reading “Conspiracy of the Elite – Power, Scams, Swindles”
I will state that we are neither pro-drug or anti-drug. Because we exist as Objectivists …we remain neutral on whether you should or should not use drugs. That’s your choice…although we don’t recommend using them. Still, we will leave it up to you. However, we are 100% against the Drug War.
The Integrated Individual could partake in certain drugs…in order to reach accelerated states of awareness. However, he (she) takes charge of his thoughts, feelings and actions. He understands the supremacy of reason…and would never do anything to sabotage it. Drug addiction is completely out of the question.
Since conquering illusions and understanding reality is a daily quest…he makes his decisions based on cause and effect relationships. For that reason, he completely supports the legalization/decriminalization of all drugs.
Here is an excerpt from the new Kindle book Defeat the Lies of the Anti-Drug Crusader.

Gold and silver stumbles. Jim Rickard’s reporting from the Daily Reckoning.
“Gold had its biggest one-day loss in almost three years…Tuesday 10/4/16. The question is why.
There was no shortage of explanations (as usual). The main theme was that the dollar is getting stronger partly due to sterling weakness on new Brexit fears. The market also took the view that a December rate hike is likely (we agree) and higher rates also add to dollar strength.”
Here’s an update on Saturday, February 25, 2017. Continue reading “Gold and Silver Stumble Ends – Special Edition”
Individuals on a spiritual path eventually hear about the virtues of non-attachment and self-denial. Some teachings inform them that desire causes all pain and suffering, which obviously has an element of truth.
Once you become attached to your desires…you ride an endless cycle of alternating pleasure and pain…especially if you’re stuck in the Hive Mind Mentality. The Social Maze becomes a troublesome environment of failure and frustration…with a few minutes of pleasure sprinkled in. Continue reading “Illusions of Self-Denial and Suffering”
