Craving Success

Success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. It is an ambiguous concept. Thus, success can be different things to different people. Success to one may be to swim the Atlantic, but this does not mean we all have to swim the Atlantic. To me, I can’t think of a worse way to spend a holiday. Thus, the achievement of success depends on the goals that have been set. Thus it is an illogical aspiration rather than a reptilian instinct. If we imbibe the young that success is to raise a family, then success derives from the family. However, if we convince the young that success comes from working for someone else, then we will get a nation full of workaholics demanding stress leave. If we pump up the nationalism, we can suggest that success derives from destroying your body for gold medals in the Olympics. If the ‘private think-tank’ controlled foreign news sources push the adverts for their wars, then one could become a successful kamikaze pilot and successfully achieve a little black plaque beneath a tree in a park.

Who Funded Feminism?

Now I am treading in murky water. This blogg alone will warrant me being black-banned. It is necessary to realize that feminism was funded and promoted by males. It was not done so for the benefit of women. Its promotion had the effect of destroying the privileged position held by women in society. Read more

An Engineer’s Mind on Economic’s Textbooks

I was at a twenty-four-year-old party and one young man said to me: “Andy. We despair at the thought that we may never be able to buy a house.” My reply was: “But that is ridiculous.” I added my usual explanation: “God or nature created land for all living things to share. As an Australian, you should have access to a house — even if you have to pay a little for it.” And so my engineering mind set about solving the problem. I realized that my children will have problems buying a house. I determined that, if children cannot buy houses, we have ‘fake affluence’. We cannot claim that we live in an affluent nation if the young cannot buy houses. A group of ten men can build a house in ten weeks, why does it take a young couple a lifetime to pay off the debt?

Free Speech

We have a so called ‘free speech’.
However the media make so much noise, we are drowned out.

The magnitude of corporate media is so large that it drowns out individual voices.
We have free speech but no voice.
Banner waving is almost the only desperate measure left and that is crushed by militarized police persuaded to treat it as civil disobedience.
The banner wavers are then denigrated by the media.
And to finish us off, if we say something the ruling class don’t like we get slammed with libel or a myriad of laws designed to make almost anything illegal.
And to fight the libel or laws, we need a bucket full of money to get through the court system.
And to fight the court system is punishment in itself even if proven innocent.
