“in his new book, power, inc., david rothkopf sounds an alarm.  he argues that thousands of private actors who he calls “super citizens” now hold greater power than most countries in the world.  he notes, for instance, that corporations have grown to the point where roughly the richest two thousand are more influential than 70-80 percent of the world’s nations. walmart, for example, has revenues higher than the gdp of all but 25 nations.” — roy ulrich, the huffington post

“as of 2016, this list includes all 135 buildings (completed and architecturally

“great britain was once a dominant military force in the world while it had a dominant economy.  at the start of the first world war, it devalued its exchange rate.  by the end of the war, owing to its military expenditure, it had large trade deficits and falling gold reserves.”
“whoever believes politics is big business must have seen this coming. the high levels of accountability from running a corporation and high expectations of seeking a seat in government have many parallels.  amid this confluence of business and political streams, chief executive magazine dubbed 2010 “a high-water mark for the ceo as candidate.”
more than 40 business magnates – the presidents and founders of banks, restaurants and tech giants – are running for seats on capitol hill or for governor’s offices in 25 states. and looking ahead donald trump says he is “absolutely thinking about” a 2012 presidential bid.” —

a christmas carol by charles dickens
“the title, three classes of men, stands for three kinds of persons in any walk of life. they might be three classes of religious or priests, husbands or wives, workers or professional men.  however, classified, they represent three levels of volitional disposition to sacrifice whatever is less than god and stands in the way of his more perfect service and love.  viewed from another aspect, they are three states of spiritual detachment which in ascending degree dispose a man for the reception of divine grace.  implicit in the meditation is the belief that no matter how entangled in secular pursuits and impeded in the way of perfection, a person can rise above this condition if he takes the trouble to recognize these impediments and is humble enough to pray for help to overcome them.” —

how can we change their minds.”
“a 
comprehensive study
 published in 2015 in nature surveyed 6,000 people across 24 countries and found that emphasizing the shared benefits of climate change was an effective way of motivating people to take action—even if they initially identified as deniers. for example, people were more likely to take steps to mitigate climate change if they believe that it will produce economic and scientific development. most importantly, these results were true across political ideology, age, and gender.”  —-
you need to get inside the mind of a climate change denier if you want to change it
— neha thirani bagri
you cannot argue them out of their positions.
facts, evidence and data are useless.
empathy for others may be impossible or fruitless.
delusion:
“an idiosyncratic belief or impression that is firmly maintained despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality or rational argument, typically a symptom of mental disorder.”
delusions.
“a delusion is a belief that is held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary. as a pathology, it is distinct from a belief based on false or incomplete information, confabulation, dogma, illusion, or other effects of perception.”
“there is some wisdom in the adage not to attempt to argue a delusion away. by definition, delusions are tenaciously held despite presentation of contrary evidence. how certain are we of anything? how might you respond if someone told you, you are not who you believe yourself to be? most people are likely to defend their belief about who they are and this is also true for delusions.”
heuristics:

fallacies:
“researchers disagree about how to define the very term “fallacy.” focusing just on fallacies in sense (a) above, namely fallacies of argumentation, some researchers define a fallacy as an argument that is deductively invalid or that has very little inductive strength.”

aging capriciously outrageous thoughts on life, love and death home about let’s play “whack a mole” with the world 15 jan 2017 leave a comment by johnpersico in uncategorized tags: arms race, drug lords, drug war, drugs, insanity, mafia, mideast, muslims, nuclear war, terrorism, war the saying is often noted but just as often ignored that “those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it.”  — santayana.   to this profound advice, i would argue that my following observation is equally true and that it has resulted in an equal number of policy disasters and misadventures.  to wit:  “those who do not recognize the patterns around them are doomed to failure.”   i came by this observation in the middle of a night while pondering the intricacies of playing the “whack a mole” game there is a game that children play and it is called “whack a mole.”  have you ever played this game?  if not, view the game at “whack a mole”.  basically, it involves a series of plastic moles that keep randomly popping out of different holes.  you get points for each mole that you whack before it drops back into its hole.  no sooner do you “whack” one mole then another one pops up again.  [if you would actually like to play the game, you can play a free fast paced version of the game at “whack a mole.”]  they call it smack and bash at this site. as i thought about this game, i began to see how it applied to numerous efforts that we undertake to bring about change.  understanding the game, i could see how futile many of these efforts are and clearly why they are doomed.  let me give you four examples that will show you how pervasive the “whack a mole” game is in politics and us policy: eliminate the mafia win the war on drugs defeat terrorism in the mideast stop the arms race  1.  eliminate the mafia: the mafia may have begun in the united states in the second half of the 19th century.  the us law establishment has been waging a war to eliminate the mafia for well over 100 years.  during that time they have killed or arrested the following mafia leaders: giuseppe “the clutch hand” morello – boss (1890s-1909) nicholas “nick” morello – boss (1909–1916) killed in 1916 vincenzo “vincent” terranova – boss (1916–1920) giuseppe “joe the boss” piperata – boss (1920–1931) charlie “lucky” luciano – boss (1931–1946) frank “the prime minister” costello – acting boss (1936–1945), boss (1946–1957) “don” vito genovese – underboss (1931–1936), boss (1957–1969) anthony “tony bender” strollo – acting boss (1959–1962) thomas “tommy ryan” eboli – acting boss (1962–1965) frank tieri – front boss (circa 1972-1981) philip lombardo – boss (1969–1981) anthony “fat tony” salerno – front boss (1981–1987) vincent “chin” gigante – underboss (1981–1987), boss (1981–2005) liborio bellomo – acting boss (1990–1992), street boss (1992–1996) dominick “quiet dom” cirillo – acting boss (1997–1998) matthew “matty the horse” ianniello – acting boss (1997–2006) mario gigante – street boss (2006–2007) daniel leo (mobster) – acting boss (2005–present) it should be noted that this list includes only the leadership in just one crime family.  there are at least a dozen or more mafia crime families in the usa.  each one has a history of crime bosses since the early 1900s. crime bosses get eliminated or changed in a number of ways. some die.  some are murdered.  some are arrested.  few if any ever simply retire.  this last fact is good for our law enforcement agencies, since it helps keep them occupied with finding and catching mafia leaders. so for over 100 years now, the fbi, the justice department and every police department in the usa have been playing the “whack a mole” game with the mafia.  they no sooner whack one mafia leader down and another pops up in his place.  what fun!  at the taxpayers’ expense of course. win the war on drugs: drugs starting becoming a major problem in the usa with the competition between cigarettes, alcohol and other substances designed to give someone a feeling of either being up, down or out of it.  we know that in 1920 the us passed the eighteenth amendment to the constitution making the manufacture, transportation and sale of alcohol illegal.  few who have studied any history can forget the fiasco that prohibition entailed.  alcohol continued to flow while crime, murder and mayhem associated with alcohol increased dramatically.   did we learn anything from this?  following is a short list of the major drug laws and “banned” drugs in the usa.  (by the way, alcohol and nicotine and caffeine are all drugs and at one time or another have all been banned someplace in the world) 1906 the pure food and drug act was passed, forming the food and drug administration and giving it power to regulate foods and drugs, and requiring labeling of contents on foods and drugs. the most important effect on the drug problem was the demise of the patent medicine industry. drug addiction began a dramatic drop. 1914 the harrison tax act was passed, effectively outlawing the opiates and cocaine. 1915 utah passed the first state anti-marijuana law. mormons who had gone to mexico in 1910 returned smoking marijuana. it was outlawed at a result of the utah legislature enacting all mormon religion prohibitions as criminal laws. 1922  narcotic drug import and export act – intended to eliminate use of narcotics except for legitimate medicinal use. 1924  heroin act -makes it illegal to manufacture heroin. 1937  marijuana tax act 1938    food, drug and cosmetic act 1942    opium poppy control act 1951    durham-humphrey amendment established more specific guidelines for prescription drugs: habit forming, safety, and evaluation of new drugs 1951    boggs amendment to the harrison narcotic act 1956    narcotics control act intends to impose even more severe penalties for narcotics violations 1965    drug abuse control amendments (daca) strict controls over amphetamines, barbiturates, lsd, etc. 1966    narcotic addict rehabilitation act (nara) 1968    daca amendments provides that sentence may be suspended and record expunged if no further violations within 1 year 1970    comprehensive drug abuse and control act replaces and updates all previous laws concerning narcotics and other dangerous drugs. empasis on law enforcement. 1972    drug abuse office and treatment act 1973    methadone control act 1973    heroin trafficking act 1973    drug enforcement administration (dea) remodels bureau of narcotics and dangerous drugs into dea 1978    alcohol and drug abuse education amendments sets up education programs within department of education 1984    drug offenders act sets up special programs for offenders and organizes treatment 1986    analogue (designer drug) act makes use of substances with similar effects and structure to existing illicit drug illegal 1988    anti-drug abuse act establishes oversight office: national drug control policy so here we see the efforts of over 100 years of drug policy to stop people from using, enjoying and abusing drugs in the usa.  what has been the result? “america is at war.  we have been fighting drug abuse for almost a century.  four presidents have personally waged war on drugs.  unfortunately, it is a war that we are losing.  drug abusers continue to fill our courts, hospitals, and prisons.  the drug trade causes violent crime that ravages our neighborhoods.  children of drug abusers are neglected, abused, and even abandoned.  the only beneficiaries of this war are organized crime members and drug dealers.” — stanford university.  for an excellent article on the costs of the drug war in the us, please see:  (“the hidden costs of america’s war on drugs” by joseph d. mcnamara, the hoover institution, stanford university) as it should be clear, the us government, the fda, the fbi and most mainstream churches in america have been playing the “whack a mole” game with drugs since the puritans first landed at plymouth rock.   first they “whack” one drug down.  then another one pops up.  then they eliminate one drug lord and then another one pops up.  they defeat one drug cartel and then another one takes its place.  our drug enforcement agencies are so busy playing “whack a mole” that they don’t have any time to deal with the reasons behind the influence and attraction of drugs.  instead they just keep on “whacking moles.” defeat terrorism in the mideast: the beginning of terrorism in the mideast can be traced back to the assassins sect that began in the eleventh century.  wikipedia notes the following: “assassins (persian|حشاشين}} hashashin) is a name used to refer to the medieval nizari ismailis.  often described as a secret order led by a mysterious “old man of the mountain”, the nizari ismailis were an islamic sect that formed in the late 11th century from a split within ismailism – itself a branch of shia islam.” modern terrorism is actually a form of asynchronous and asymmetric warfare.  one side being more powerful than the other side (asymmetric) forces the other side to avoid one to one confrontations or pitched battles in favor of random unpredictable strikes (asynchronous).   terrorism is a means of striking back at a more powerful enemy and avoiding what might be an assured defeat by not confronting your opponent in a pitched battle.  history is full of episodes where fighters and even entire armies engaged in such warfare.  in the us, the indian wars often followed such methods of warfare.  the battle against geronimo being a prime example. terrorism in the mideast since george h.w. bush and through the obama administration seems to be following the pattern that i have called “whack a mole.”  using drone attacks, surgical strikes, clean bombing, decapitation strikes, discriminant deterrence, hunter killer teams, kill boxes, and counterinsurgency attacks, the us military attempts to “neutralize” the power of the “terrorists” who have their own panoply of attack methods. if you look at what has happened over the past twenty years in the mideast in terms of the war on terrorism, you can clearly see the “whack a mole” game at work.  we eliminate one of their leaders, they destroy some of our soldiers with bombs, ieds or suicide attacks.  we then strike back at their leaders and then it is their turn again to kill us.  we “whack” them and then they “whack” back. each time we kill one of their leaders, another one pops up to take their place.  each enemy group we defeat seems to be immediately replaced by another enemy group.  our army, navy air force, marines, armament industries and politicians never seem to get tired of playing the “whack a mole” game.  keep in mind, that while the game might be great fun for these groups, there is a cost to the game.   to date the financial and human costs are: financial cost of the war on terror :  “a recent brown university study, for example, pinned the cost of the wars in iraq, afghanistan, pakistan and syria at about $3.6 trillion from 2001 to 2016, using the $1.6 trillion operations costs as a baseline but also accounting for counterterrorism costs. adding in money appropriated for war spending and on homeland security in 2017, the total reaches $4.79 trillion. this figure also includes future obligations for veterans medical and disability costs ($1 trillion through 2053) as well as interest on borrowing for wars.” — politifact, linda qiu, october 27th, 2016. human costs of the war on terror: afghanistan and pakistan:  173,000 dead and 183,000 seriously wounded.  (2001 to 2016) iraq:  1.9 million killed (1991 to 2003) and 1 million killed (2003 to 2015) for the figures i used above as well as for other estimates and detailed breakdowns of casualty figures, see the following sources.  the above figures are low compared to some estimates.  none of these figures include the deaths in libya, syria, israel, turkey, usa or palestine which should also be considered as deaths from the war on terrorism. middle east eye costs of war – brown university study mint press news global research physicians for social responsibility – body count, casualties after 10 years of the war on terror, march 2015 stop the arms race: the final example of a “whack a mole” game that we are caught in deals with our oft stated goal to stop creating more dangerous and more expensive weapons of war.  we call this the “arms race” and we have played it with great britain, france, russia and now china.  i will briefly explain how the game works.  you will readily see that it is a version of the “whack a mole” game. step 1, we conceive of a weapon that nobody else has or has even dreamt of having.  it must be dangerous, expensive, frightening and have the potential to kill millions or at least thousands.  step 2, we spend billions of dollars on r&d to develop the weapon.  step 3, we then spend billions of dollars to produce the weapon.  step 4, we then sell the weapon to any military agency in our own country that will buy it.  step 5, after a sufficient period of time has elapsed (but before the weapon is obsolete), we sell it to other friendly countries that will buy it.  we must start with the highest bidder.  step 6, after we have sold it to all our allies or potential allies, we wait until they have sold it to any potential enemies.  this might take a year or so.  finally, after our enemies have now acquired the same weapon potential (even if in a slightly modified form) we then loudly proclaim that: “our nation’s security and ability to defend itself is being undermined by the weapons that our enemies have.  we must build new and better weapon systems.  we must increase defense spending.  we risk falling behind in the ability to defend ourselves.” then we start the process all over again from step 1.   it is the “whack the mole” game, albeit a modified version of the game.  we build the weapons to whack our enemies and then they buy the weapons or build similar weapons to whack us back.  then we build weapons to counter their weapons and then they build or buy weapons to counter our weapons.  we have been engaged in this game since 1776 with every single weapon system that has ever been devised.   think of the atom bomb.  how long did it take russia to develop a similar bomb?  think of the hydrogen bomb.  how long did it take the russians and others to develop a hydrogen bomb? here is a list of rifles that have been used in the usa since the war of 1776.  the following list does not include carbines.  for a full list of weapon systems and their history see:  list of individual weapons of the u.s. armed forces – wikipedia m16a3 (5.56×45mm nato) (usn seals and usn seabees) m16a2 (5.56×45mm nato) (usaf, uscg,

will never be far away.  it is almost but not quite the same as forgetting the past.  there is indeed a similarity between my comment and santayana’s famous quote.  however, i see it as a pattern that i have described as “whack a mole.”  how long will we go on whacking moles, killing people, spending money that could go to education, health care or eliminating poverty? time for questions: do you think that we should be playing “whack the mole?”  how do we stop playing this game?  do you think it is human nature to keep fighting and killing others?  should we really be trying to ban every substance that people want to take? life is just beginning. falken:  did you ever play tic-tac-toe? jennifer:  yeah, of course. falken:  but you don’t anymore. jennifer:  no. falken:  why? jennifer:  because it’s a boring game. it’s always a tie. falken:  exactly. there’s no way to win. the game itself is pointless! but back at the war room, they believe you can win a nuclear war. that there can

by johnpersico in uncategorized tags: corporations, kings, leaders, popes, power, presidents, rulers, sovereignty, trump, war, wealth the journey of donald trump from businessman to the head of the largest corporate state in the world did not as many assume start 12 months ago.  in fact, the roots of trumps ascendancy can be traced back to at least 2,500 bce.  never before in history, has anyone with a business background and so little experience in either politics or military become the leader of a major state.  however, we did not see the buildup to this happening because most of the time we are focused on short-view trends and we miss entirely the long term trends that entail even more potent forces at play. in numerous attempts to explain the election of trump, most pundits have looked to the micro forces, such as international trade, disillusion among blue collar white males, the affordable care act, distrust of hillary clinton, russian interference in the election, white backlash and rising income inequality.  while these forces might explain trump’s election they do not explain why america has now seen fit to elect a businessperson with no political experience as its 45th president. in fact, the election of a person with a business background to run the country represents a major shift in power that has been taking place for nearly fifty years and can be linked to other power shifts since the beginning of recorded history.  in this blog, i will explain how and why we now find america being run by the elite of corporate america.  to do this, we must go back to the ancient egyptians. in approximately 2,500 bce, the pharaoh khufu built the largest of the pyramids known as the great pyramid of giza as a burial chamber.  the great pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for more than 3,800 years.   it was one of three large pyramids built in the giza complex.  then as now, humans marked their sovereignty by creating tall structures to show their power and prestige.  this phenomenon has been so consistent that it provides an insight into the sovereign powers that rule that planet and the various power shifts that have occurred throughout history. i mean to use the term sovereign to express the possessing of supreme or ultimate power.  for nearly 3,000 years, kings, pharaohs, dictators, emperors and those born of royal blood who were “related to gods” were the ultimate sovereigns over most of humankind.  the early romans and greeks made some attempts to commute the power of their rulers by selecting some representatives of the population but these were generally of royal blood themselves and seldom of plebeian birth.  julius caesar who tried to be a “man of the people” was himself born into a patrician family. around the fall of the roman empire in 400 ce, sovereign power shifted from the nobility to the catholic church (at least in europe).  bear in mind that the shifts i refer to did not take place overnight.  these transitions in power took place gradually over decades and with many tug of wars between the transitioning sovereigns.  it was pope leo (440 ce) who first asserted papal primacy and he was supported by the romans because of the political chaos in the west.  pope gelasius i (492 ce) declared that priestly power was above kingly power.  the pope was supreme and no appeals could be made for his decision.  sovereign power had now shifted to the clergy of the roman catholic church. throughout most of europe, the clergy and other minions of the catholic church assumed roles of leadership and sovereignty.  as the power of the church grew, so did the churches, cathedrals and basilicas which they built.  each one was larger than the last one and all were designed to be larger than any buildings of the nobility or royalty.  the church manifested its power in the grandeur and elegance of its buildings. the catholic church remained the dominant sovereign power in europe until the reign of pope boniface viii.  the clash of the church to remain dominant over the newly emerging nation/state rulers took place in an epic battle between pope boniface viii (1294 ce) and king phillip iv of france.  several other skirmishes had already taken place between popes and rulers in the decades preceding with the battles seesawing back and forth.  however, the decisive battle for sovereignty was between pope boniface viii and king phillip iv.  it was vicious and at times bloody.  it saw the end of church sovereignty and the beginning of the sovereignty of nation/state rulers.   boniface was captured by forces loyal to philip and was beaten and nearly executed.  he was released from captivity after three days and died a short time later.  his defeat marked the end of the power of the church to rule and the rise of the power of rulers of nation/states. there are four characteristics of a nation/state.  these are: defined territory self-rule (sovereignty) some form of organized government a population of people sharing a national identity during the period of nation/state rulers, they built some magnificent buildings such as versailles in france, castello del valentino in italy, the palace of placentia in london and the schönbrunn palace in vienna.  if not the largest buildings in each country, they dwarfed in overall grandeur and size the churches that had been built by the clergy.  the period of nation/state rulers lasted from about 1400 ce to the middle of the 19th century. the power of most of these nation/state rulers (usually with some pedigree of nobility) began to wane as the people in each country demanded more and more input into economic and political decisions.  eventually, the nobility in most european countries were forced to make concessions to the idea of democratic or at least some form of republican rule.  the transition from rulers to republics was insured by the rise of a new class which we today call politicians or bureaucrats.  in time, these professional politicians became sovereign and replaced the old style rulers by virtue of a concept called elections or voting.  no one voted for henry the viii of england or czar nicholas ii of germany or king ferdinand of spain, but with the emergence of state governments, politicians and bureaucrats would become the new sovereigns. the rise of most modern states started about the mid seventieth century.  increasingly, although rulers in many nations could still be very powerful and even dictators, there was now some agency in every country that attempted to provide a balance to the ruler’s power.  in england, they established a parliament in 1706 that was later characterized by a house of lords and a house of commons.  in france, they created a national assembly in 1791.  in germany, they established a parliament in the 1870’s.  by the beginning of the 20th century, although many nations had still kept their nobility as a form of tradition, most of the reins of government were in the hands of bureaucrats or elected officials.  prime ministers and presidents had replaced kings and queens in the political decision making process. the new sovereigns started building.  no more castles or palaces were built to house the new rulers.  instead, capitals, state houses and mansions would be the new domiciles for politicians and bureaucrats.  government leaders were no different though than kings and clergy when it came to siting their residences.  they also sought the high ground to place their buildings on.  the tallest buildings in the land now belonged to the government.  this situation would not last very long.  even more changes were taking place.  in a few short years, nations would no longer have an exclusive on sovereignty.  a new challenger was rapidly emerging. the new challenger started to emerge with the first corporations which began over a thousand years ago.  however, until the power of mercantilism started to become critical to state and military power in the late 16th century, the early corporations were rather toothless.  an excellent book titled power inc. covers the rise of the modern corporation in much more detail than i shall go into here.  the book by david rothkopf is fittingly subtitled:  “the epic rivalry between big business and government–and the reckoning that lies ahead.”    “in his new book, power, inc., david rothkopf sounds an alarm.  he argues that thousands of private actors who he calls “super citizens” now hold greater power than most countries in the world.  he notes, for instance, that corporations have grown to the point where roughly the richest two thousand are more influential than 70-80 percent of the world’s nations. walmart, for example, has revenues higher than the gdp of all but 25 nations.” — roy ulrich, the huffington post the capitalistic industries wasted no time in starting to construct new buildings that would soon dwarf all of the previous tombs, castles, cathedrals and capitals throughout the world.  these buildings are so tall that they have been labeled as “skyscrapers.”  the world’s first skyscraper was the home insurance building in chicago, erected in 1884-1885.  its 138 foot peak would be dwarfed by skyscrapers today.  the flatiron building in nyc was built in 1902 and is twenty floors high and 307 feet to its peak.  the empire state building was built in 1931 in nyc and for many years it was the tallest building in the world standing over 100 stories and 1400 feet in height. with the rapid economic development of many former third world countries there has been a proliferation of corporate skyscrapers with many countries vying for the honor of having the tallest building in the world.  searching on google for the “tallest buildings in the world” one finds the following information for buildings over 300 meters tall: “as of 2016, this list includes all 135 buildings (completed and architecturally topped out) which reach a height of 300 meters (984 ft.) or more as assessed by their highest architectural feature.” — wikipedia the list includes skyscrapers built in china, united arab emirates, dubai, south korea, taiwan, malaysia, russia and several other nations.   perhaps presaging the emergence of china and asia as the dominant world economies, asia is already assuming the role of having many of the largest buildings in the world.  what we are witnessing is a contest of global economies vying for supremacy in terms of world economic sovereignty.  an interesting aside is that the world currency is considered a reflection of the nation that is the most powerful in this arena.  to date, the united states still holds that distinction but many are predicting the demise of the us dollar as the standard for world currency. but what does this have to do with trump you may be starting to ask?  what does commercial sovereignty have to do with political sovereignty?  the answer to the second question is everything.  the major reason for the success of the allied powers in both wwi and wwii was the economic might of the united states.  economic power translates into military power and military power translates into political power.  this fact has been recognized for over 500 years now.  spain’s ascendancy to a world power was built on its confiscation of wealth in the new world.  hitler recognized that germany could not be a dominant world power without confiscating the wealth of jewish citizens and also of its neighboring countries. “great britain was once a dominant military force in the world while it had a dominant economy.  at the start of the first world war, it devalued its exchange rate.  by the end of the war, owing to its military expenditure, it had large trade deficits and falling gold reserves.” — buoyant economies the question of trump brings a larger issue to the fore.  generally, we have seen that as the dominant world power shifts, the leadership shifts along with it.  the features of buildings as a representation of power has followed these shifts.  however, in terms of the new power of corporations, it would seem that the buildings have been created before the shift in leadership.  that is until trump became president of the united states of america. is trump’s election an anomaly or does it truly represent the emergence of corporate power into the political arena?  my view on this is that trump’s election is merely the tip of the iceberg.  for over 20 years now the united states has been electing more and more political leaders who are not politicians.  i am considering someone as not a politician if they are people who have not made a career of politics. many business people are jumping right into the political arena without experience in either local, state or federal government.  the founder of electronic data systems, ross perot may be remembered by many voters as the ultimate tycoon-turned-politician.  perot ran for president in 1992 and 1996 as a third-party candidate. an article written in 2010 before trump had become a candidate stated the following concerning the election of corporate people to public office: “whoever believes politics is big business must have seen this coming. the high levels of accountability from running a corporation and high expectations of seeking a seat in government have many parallels.  amid this confluence of business and political streams, chief executive magazine dubbed 2010 “a high-water mark for the ceo as candidate.” more than 40 business magnates – the presidents and founders of banks, restaurants and tech giants – are running for seats on capitol hill or for governor’s offices in 25 states. and looking ahead donald trump says he is “absolutely thinking about” a 2012 presidential bid.” — ten business leaders with politics in their blood, by bill briggs during the republican runoff to the nomination of trump, we saw carly fiorina who was a former ceo also emerge as a potential candidate.  we now have ten governors with no former elected government service.  seven former us presidents with business experience have all been elected in the 20th or 21st century.  the following chart shows the net worth of the wealthiest senators in the us. congress as of 2012. the next chart shows the average net worth of 90 incoming freshman representatives to the 113th us congress january 3, 2013 to january 3, 2015 year number of freshmen reports average net worth change from previous year 2011 90 $7,835,242 —- more data can be found at ballotpedia at https://ballotpedia.org/main_page my point here is that most millionaires make their money in business.  on the 2016 forbes lists of richest 400 people in the world, richest billionaires in the world and richest people in the world, the majority (about 2/3) have made their money in business.  furthermore, they are self-made in that they did not inherit their fortunes.  perusing forbes, it is clear that the dominant path to becoming rich is to sell something that people want at a price they can afford. it is clear that wealth accumulated to a business background has increasingly become a stepping stone to politics and political leadership.  trumps presidency is the crown on the new sovereignty.  business leaders are now rapidly replacing politicians and bureaucrats in the area of political leadership.  already trump’s nominees include the chief executive of exxon corporation; the chief executive of cke restaurants; the former chief executive of the world wrestling entertainment; a former goldman sachs executive; a billionaire investor; a right wing media executive and a former chief executive of nucor corporation.  these are only a few of the still to come appointments that trump will make. it is my prediction that business leaders will continue to make the transition to political leadership.  the business model is now the sovereign model for world power.  the power of the state has been usurped by the power of big business.  global power is corporate power.  the public is sick of career politicians.  the common people bring a (perhaps unfounded) belief in the power of business to save the world.  considering that we have tried the power of academia, the power of science and the power of big government to save the world, perhaps the power of business can do better.  one might argue that they can at least do no worst. conclusion: from khufu to trump, we have now briefly (my apologies for many simplifications and no doubt omissions in history) covered 4,500 years of political and economic history in a short seven or so pages.  i can see the great historians and economists of the world having fits at my narrative. nevertheless, my thesis remains.  simply put trump is now the successor to khufu, caesar, pope boniface, henry the viii, bismarck, churchill and roosevelt.  big business is now the dominant sovereign power in the world.  how long will it last?  how long will it take all politicians to be replaced by business people?  i have no answers to these questions; but one must assume that somewhere down the road, another sovereign power will emerge or may already be emerging.  until then, be prepared for most decisions to have a “let’s make a deal” flavor to them. time for questions: how long will the reign of big business last?  how long will it take politicians to all be replaced by business people?  will business succeed in making the world a better place?  why or why not? life is just beginning. “i spent 33 years and 4 months in active military service . . . and during that period i spent most of my time as a high-class muscle man for big business, for wall street and the bankers. in short, i was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. thus, i helped make mexico and especially tampico safe for american oil interests in 1914. i helped make haiti and cuba a decent place for the national city bank boys to collect revenues in. i helped in the raping of half a dozen central american republics for the benefit of wall street. i helped purify nicaragua for the international banking house of brown brothers in 1902–1912. i brought light to the dominican republic for american sugar interests in 1916. i helped make honduras right for american fruit companies in 1903. in china in 1927, i helped see to it that standard oil went on its way unmolested. our boys were sent off to die with beautiful ideals painted in front of them. no one told them that dollars and cents were the real reason they were marching off to kill and die.” ― general smedley butler “our aim is not to do away with corporations; on the contrary, these big aggregations are an inevitable development of modern industrialism, and the effort to destroy them would be futile unless accomplished in ways that would work the utmost mischief to the entire body politic. we can do nothing of good in the way of regulating and supervising these corporations until we fix clearly in our minds that we are not attacking the corporations, but endeavoring to do away with any evil in them. we are not hostile to them; we are merely determined that they shall be so handled as to serve the public good. we draw the line against misconduct, not against wealth.” ― theodore roosevelt

and may 2017 be a year of more peace, justice, health and happiness for the world. i have the following story to share with you as we enter 2017.  karen and i make the trip twice a year between wisconsin and arizona to follow the sun.  while driving back to wisconsin from arizona, we were listening to classical music on public radio when they said they were going to play a piece called “down a river of time.”  both karen and i noted the title and almost simultaneously said: “that would make a wonderful metaphor for a blog.”  since many of my blogs deal with metaphors, (do you remember the difference between an analogy, a simile and a metaphor?) i thought it would be a good subject for the new year.  if you want to listen to the music while you read this short blog (click on the link:  down a river of time).  you will probably enjoy the music more than my blog. the most obvious metaphor for this topic is that we are all on a river of time.  some of us are on long rivers, some of us on short rivers.  some of our rivers are very rocky.   some of our rivers are very shallow and rapid.  some of us are on rivers that are deep and wide.  a lucky few of us may live our lives on rivers that are very tranquil and placid.  most likely though, most of us will live on rivers with many twists and turns that will suddenly go from peaceful and placid to wild and rough.  we will all no doubt eventually have unexpected obstacles that arise causing some of us to suddenly capsize.  those of us who are lucky will find our way back into the boat.  many will not be so lucky. if you have spent your life on a wide tranquil river, it would be very difficult for you to appreciate anyone coming from a rough whitewater style river.  the converse is also true.  maybe that is why it is difficult to walk in anyone else’s shoes.  we are all on different rivers and it is hard to understand the perspective of someone whose river is one we have never paddled.  at this point, you might say:  “well, i disagree, life is simply one vast river and we all have rocks and logs and rapids to manage.”  maybe so. when we are very young, our parents do the paddling for us.  as we become teenagers we decide we want to paddle alone.  we want our independence.  some of us go to school to learn how to paddle and navigate.  learning a language will help those who want to navigate foreign rivers.  circumstances or choice will eventually force many of us to leave our first river and go far away to try a new river.  the bold among us will switch rivers many times in their life and continually attempt more challenging ones. as we get older, the paddling gets harder and we may need to rely on others for help to paddle.  we can no longer do it by ourselves anymore.  the paddling continues to become more difficult with each passing year.  eventually, there will come a day when we are too old to paddle at all.  at this point, we will have to depend entirely on someone to do the paddling for us.  some of us will have a difficult time letting go of the paddling chores.  it is not easy to navigate a river that takes us from dependence to independence and back to dependency again. time for questions: you might ask yourself today what kind of a river are you on now?  what kinds of rivers have you navigated in the past?  have you had many rocky or obstacle strewn stretches in your river?  have you ever capsized but managed to get back in?  do you have a lifejacket in the boat with you?  are you paddling solo or do you have a partner?  have you become a better paddler over the years? if not, why?  what will it take for you to continue down the river of time and continue having fun and enjoying the ride? life if just beginning. “have you also learned that secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time?” that the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future.” ― hermann hesse, siddhartha share

off because i write better than she does.  well, since it is the holiday season, i will let her slide.  for my part, (karen will add hers in a short while), i promise not to talk about politics, religion or philosophy.  we are all sick of politics and you are probably only marginally interested in the latter two topics.  what’s left then?  well, i was thinking that i just turned 70 in september.  i never believed that i would see 30 years of age.  now here i am 4 decades later pondering the same mysteries of life that i pondered forty years ago.  feeling a little nostalgic, i got to thinking about the “firsts in my life.”  for instance, my first kiss and my first job.  so how about participating in a little nostalgia here and fire up your memories as well.  i have posted a list of “my firsts” with my responses to each item.  list is on the left with my responses to each one on the right.  can you remember your answers to my list?   i would love to hear your list of firsts.  please post your firsts in the comments section if you can remember what they are and don’t mind sharing. first day at school? — i remember just walking to school by myself  first job? — i

view ar where i met the dulcimer 9 years ago.  a fateful meeting it was.  my first chromatic travel dulcimer which i took with me to new york in nov.  my first raised bed garden this past summer made from old discarded stock tanks.  it produced more food than we could eat and it was so easy to weed and harvest.  my first grandson, garrick, getting married to kat this coming spring.  my first viewing of an opera at the metropolitan opera in nyc.  my first concert in carnegie hall.  my first trip up the statue of liberty and out to ellis island to look for ancestors. it’s been a full, fun and sometimes exhausting year.  we still work part time to support our “snow birds” lifestyle.  i’m working with start-up home care agencies, teaching and consulting, and icd 10 coding.  john has taught both on-line and residence classes.  we escaped our part time work with trips down to kentucky for kentucky music week, trips to the ocean in puerto penasco, mexico, and a fall anniversary trip to bayfield, wi.  and, of course, the trips back and forth from wi to az where john tries to find new unspoiled routes each time we go. juli and rob remain in hastings with daughter logan as a h.s junior this year and son garrick and fiancé kat are fixing up a home and planning their wedding.  susan bought a home in bloomington and accumulates mileage on her car with sam (also a junior) in

dickens, gospel, happiness, hate, holidays, hope, jesus, joy, joy to the world, kindness, love, message of jesus, peace, scrooge tis the season to be jolly, but for many people there might seem little to be jolly about.  in one of the most famous holiday stories of all time, the central character ebenezer scrooge gave what has become an iconic line about the holiday season.  scrooge said: “what’s christmas but a time for finding yourself a year older and not a day richer?  there’s nothing merry in that.  if i could work my will, nephew, every idiot who goes about with “merry christmas” on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through his heart.” — a christmas carol by charles dickens not exactly a fan of christmas, scrooge may have echoed sentiments that lie dormant in many of us.  over the years, it seems the holiday season starts earlier and earlier.  there is more pressure than ever to buy the right gifts and to spend increased amounts of hard earned money on presents for friends and loved ones.  the airwaves and pulpits bemoan the crass commercialism that accompanies so much of the holiday season while at the same time making sure that all commercial breaks are properly inserted between the “holiday messages.” our churches are full of giving trees, toy drives and christmas shoes boxes.  perhaps giving more at christmas to some mysteriously perceived needy children in dire need of more toys will make us feel better about ourselves for ignoring the poor and needy for the rest of the year.  even at church, the message that jesus meant for us gets diluted with the drive to fill the toy box.  do we even know any more what message jesus wanted us to hear? jesus talked about the three classes of good people.  the first class hears his message but has little time to do anything about it.  the second class hears the message and when convenient they try to help others and spread the message of jesus.  the third class commits their body and soul to sharing jesus’s message.  the third class of men/women make a commitment to doing this year round and 24/7.  for the third class, it is not a onetime thing or something to be done when they have time or are not busy.  it is a lifetime commitment to share his message with the world. “the title, three classes of men, stands for three kinds of persons in any walk of life. they might be three classes of religious or priests, husbands or wives, workers or professional men.  however, classified, they represent three levels of volitional disposition to sacrifice whatever is less than god and stands in the way of his more perfect service and love.  viewed from another aspect, they are three states of spiritual detachment which in ascending degree dispose a man for the reception of divine grace.  implicit in the meditation is the belief that no matter how entangled in secular pursuits and impeded in the way of perfection, a person can rise above this condition if he takes the trouble to recognize these impediments and is humble enough to pray for help to overcome them.” — three classes of men by fr. john a. hardon, s.j. most of us will watch at least a few moving holiday stories before december 25th.  from miracle on 34 street to the story of the christmas truce during the fighting of wwi, we will hear many heartwarming tales of kindness and love.  most of these stories are similar in theme to the christmas carol.  an individual who has utter contempt or callousness for the christmas message somehow finds redemption through the love and compassion of others. the joy of christmas is a state of fulfillment, contentment and gratitude.  through the love of others who give selflessly of themselves, we can all be free to experience a joy that cannot be bought or traded.  it is one of the reasons that giving and not receiving is said to be the true path to happiness.  during the holidays, we are excited about the chance to give to others.  and nowhere is that feeling of giving more delightful than in watching the face of a young child receive something that we know they really wanted.  however, joy to the world should mean more than just giving toys to tots.  there are physical gifts which we can give but there are also emotional and spiritual gifts as well. i am frequently critical of all the toy drives that i see going on at christmastime.  not just because i think most kids in america have more toys than they know what to do with, but because of the message that this sends.  why not i ask, have a “books for tots” drive?  why not give books for a present?  why is it always about toys?  we become so narrowly focused that we lose sight of the larger picture. christmas is about joy.  but joy does not just come from toys.  joy comes from learning.  joy comes from sharing.  joy comes from helping others.  joy comes from being present when needed by others.  joy is not just a physical phenomenon; it is a spiritual and emotional phenomenon.  the message of joy that jesus wanted to bring into the world was a message about peace and love. i see a lot of talk these days about putting the ten commandments up on scrolls and even billboards.  here in arizona city, they have erected a billboard with the ten commandments printed on it.  to the best of my knowledge, jesus said “do not think that i have come to abolish the law or the prophets; i have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.  for truly, i say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the law until all is accomplished.  therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  for i tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” — matthew 5:17-20 thus, jesus did not come to replace the commandments but he did come to go beyond the commandments.  god brought the commandments to moses but the message that jesus brought to us is in addition to the commandments.  jesus extended the ten commandments with a list that has come to be known as the eight beatitudes.   a beatitude is something that gives one both happiness and blessedness.  jesus gave these eight during his famous sermon on the mount: the eight beatitudes of jesus “blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted. blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see god. blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of god. blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” gospel of st. matthew 5:3-10 i am continually surprised by so-called christians who seem to revel in the ten commandments but treat the eight beatitudes as though they were bastard children of satan.  when was the last time you heard anyone wanting to put up a statue or sculpture or sign with the eight beatitudes on it?  the message of christmas is the eight beatitudes.  the joy that jesus wanted to bring to the world can only come by following the eight beatitudes.  if you call yourself a christian but you do not practice these in you daily life, then you are not spreading the gospel of jesus. in this present climate of fear, bigotry and uncertainty engendered by the recent us presidential race and outcome, the message of jesus needs to be repeated and spread as never before.  if there was no joy in muddville when casey struck out, there certainly will not be any joy in the world until all of us, christian, buddhist, jew, muslim, hindu, mormon, baha’i  and others start believing in and following the eight beatitudes.  i am not saying this to try to convince anyone to be a christian.  the words of the beatitudes go beyond any one religion.  they speak to a way of being in the world and a way of treating other human beings.  just as i have found valuable teachings in other religions, i think more christians should be willing to share the message of jesus in the eight beatitudes.  keep in mind though, that sharing this message will never work unless you also live by the message.  you must be the change you want to see in others.  do you know what the famous indian chief sitting bull said when asked what he thought of christianity?  chief sitting bull replied: “i have read your bible and the religion seems good but i do not see many white people practicing it.” time for questions:  when we denigrate people on welfare and refuse to support the poor and needy what beatitude are we ignoring? when we want to wage war on other countries to support our lifestyle, what beatitude are we breaking? when we have no time for immigrants and refuse to shelter those needing respite from tyranny and injustice, what beatitude speaks to this? when we practice racism and discrimination towards those who are different from us in thoughts, words or deeds, what beatitude are we not following? when we fail to speak out against bigotry and hatred, what beatitude would challenge our behavior? when we fail to treat others with honesty and integrity, what beatitude are we disdaining? when we fail to give compassion and comfort to those in need, what beatitude should we be thinking more of? when we practice narcissism and think we are better than others, what beatitude would jesus tell us to look at more closely? which “class” of people do you belong to? life is just beginning. “the spirit of christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness.  it illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world’s busy life and become more interested in people than in things.” — thomas s. monson       share

devil, equality, evil, fairness, god, good, justice, mercy, satan satan and god were sitting on a rock one day having a discussion about the human race. satan said to “god, i need some more souls in hell.  i think we have played this game with humanity for long enough.  let’s end it and start a new game.” god said:  “well, i could be talked into that.  how would you suggest we end it? satan:  “we can divide up the human race.  you take the good ones and i will take the bad ones.” god:  “who would you include among the ‘bad’ ones?” satan:  “i will take all the people who never promoted peace and who sowed the seeds of hate and bigotry among humanity.” god:  “they are all you want?” satan:  “well, i would also like all the greedy ones who never did anything to help anyone else but who collected as much wealth as they could and would not share it with anyone else.” god:  “does this include all the greedy people who were against taxes to help the poor and needy?” satan:  “of course.” god:  “that’s not fair.  there would hardly be anyone left for me.” satan:  “do you remember a long time ago when you gave lot the deal with finding ten good people and you would save the cities of sodom and gomorrah from your wrath.  your angels could not find even ten people for you to spare.  that was a good day for me.” god:  “you have had many good days since we started this game.  do you think perhaps it’s all your fault?  you are constantly sowing greed and hate.” satan:  “guilty as charged but do you remember the parable of the seeds?  some fell on good soil and grew and some fell on bad soil and did not grow.  my efforts would be fruitless were not humans so ripe for plucking and beguiling.” god:  “still, sometimes, i think you have been overzealous.  i gave humans free will when i created them and this has come back to bias our game.” satan:  “please, now is not the time for hindsight.  i warned you about this when you created them but you were ever the optimist.” satan:  “do you want to concede and i will just take them all down to hell?” god:  “do you have no mercy and compassion in you someplace? satan:  “you created me and now you extol me to be compassionate and merciful.  those are traits best left for you and your saints.  i have no heart or soul so how can i care about anything much less human beings.” god:  “would you like to start over.  i can always recreate you.” satan:  “thanks, but i am fine.  i like myself just the way i am.  i see no need for pity, love, kindness, or any of the other traits that you gave to humans.  much good it has done them.” god:  “the interesting thing about humans is not their stupidity and evilness.  it’s the surprising amount of love that they can sometimes show for others.  i am ever the optimist.  that is my role, to be the eternal optimist.  i have had hopes since the first cave men and since moses and socrates and jesus and mohammed and gandhi and king and mandela that humans have a spark in them.  a spark that when ignited can change themselves and the world into something beautiful.  something that is so beautiful, it is even beyond anything i might have created.” satan:  “yes, and then they turn right around and burn it down again.”  hardly a day goes by on earth, when there is not some riot or war or holocaust or massacre or murder.” god:  “it seesaws back and forth.  for over 100,000 years now, we have played this game and just when i think, i might win, someone or something evil seems to possess humans that i would never have thought of.” satan:  “right, and you would like to blame me for it, but you gave them free will.” god:  “the game would have been too predictable without free will.” satan:  “you keep hoping they will believe in you someday.  how many times have we had this discussion and yet we keep playing this game.” god:  “would you deny me the chance to win.” satan:  “you know i don’t care one way or the other.  i have no feelings to be hurt.  i cannot gloat or feel any satisfaction.  whenever, a new soul comes down to hell, it is no sense of pride or satisfaction to me.  these humans seem to mistake my logic and justice for evil.  i am the parent who dispenses the discipline and they see me as the mean and cruel one.” satan:  “from a purely logical viewpoint, i do not know why you subject yourself to this.  i see your pain and heartache whenever you lose one to me.  why go on like this?  it will never be any different.  i get them for a thousand or so years and then i send their cleansed souls back to earth and in a short time they are back down again to hell.” god:  “i have no limits to my forgiveness.  they pray to me regularly for forgiveness and i forgive them.” satan:  “yes, but even before they ask for forgiveness, they ask for their daily bread.  it is the only thing they can think about, eating and drinking and sex.” god:  “you forget the good ones.  the mothers that devote their lives to their children.  the soldiers that forfeit their lives on the battlefields.  the fathers that work two jobs to support their families.  the martyrs who give their lives for their faith.  the blessed who are humble.  the peacemakers who face scorn and ridicule to end war.  the charitable who give the shirt off their backs to help those in need.” satan:  “yes, and for every good one, there are ten evil ones.  that is why i want to end this farce.  how many souls must i take down to hell, before you concede that humans are hopeless?” god:  “perhaps if i send another prophet or messiah to spread my message, we could turn the game around?” satan:  “you have sent dozens of prophets and many messiahs and it has made no difference.  they end up scorning or murdering your prophets and messiahs.  they would not follow your message if they could find the tablets that you etched in stone and gave to moses.” god:  “i don’t want to win for my sake.  i fight for love and peace and justice and beauty.  these are the things that bring color to the universe.  without these, you have a bland shade of grey.  you have a sterile meaningless bunch of rocks.  you have never understood this because you see everything through pure logic and no emotions.” satan:  “when you created me, you thought that such a being as i am would be superior to one that could be swayed by emotions and feelings.  now you criticize me for doing my job?” god:  “i did not realize how monotonous and tedious the universe would be without feelings.” satan:  “it does not seem like you can have it both ways.  you want to create a world without evil and based on compassion and love and yet you give humans the ingredients that foment hatred and bigotry.” god:  “do you not think we have made any progress since the first humans were created?  i have infinite patience.  we can play the game for eons but i will win someday.” satan:  “and is it worth it?  how much pain and misery and suffering must you endure dealing with these humans?” god:  “true, they have tried my patience at times.  but just when i might be willing to concede to you, i see justice and love blossoming some place and it makes the battle worth winning.  as their creator, i cannot turn my back on these humans.  there is no limit to my forgiveness.  i am not driven by logic as you are.  i am the mother who cannot give up on her children regardless of how many times they make mistakes.” satan:  “but they never learn. they are shortsighted, petty, vindictive and greedy.  do you really think they care about your teachings or precious commitment to love and peace?  they would rather fight wars and dominate others.  they even fight wars in your name.  their religions scream for violence over other religions.  their leaders preach victory over other nations.  their minion’s rape and pillage in the name of some esoteric ideology.  they all believe they are superior to each other.  they send their own children to die in wars of so called freedom and liberation.  they abuse and murder their own spouses at alarming rates.  they teach their offspring at an early age to be intolerant of other races.  and they pray in your name for the power to be successful in all of these efforts.  they invoke prayers to you before murdering millions.  how can you listen to these prayers and want to help these hypocrites.” god:  “being in charge of hell does not help you to see any positives in the universe.  you have a very difficult job.” satan:  “we make a good team.  you, the everlasting optimist, full of hope and love.  me, the ultimate logician, ever ready to exact justice for evil done.” satan:  “they will destroy themselves anyway and then what.  did you know that the earth was warming up at an alarming rate?” god:  “of course.” satan:  “it is not your doing, right?” god:  “no, i have nothing to do with it.” satan:  “and yet they blame you for it.  the last thing in the world they want to admit is that it might be their fault.  that all of their pollution, oil burning, fossil fuel burning and carbon emissions is changing their climate.  they deny any responsibility for it.  i thought they would destroy the world with nuclear weapons, but they somehow avoided doing that.  now, they are working to destroy it by overheating it.  i don’t think it will be long before the game is over.” god:  “you count them out too fast.  the clock was close to 12 with nuclear weapons but as you noted, they carefully avoided destroying themselves.  they are often very shortsighted and many of them will never be long-term thinkers.  however, there are enough who care and who are passionate enough about others to help save humanity.  i can’t help being filled with astonishment at the love that humans frequently have for each other.” satan:  “yes, but it always seems to entail some crisis to bring it out.” god:  “that is true.  but it shows that there is hope.  and even if there is only 1 human being still alive who cares about others, that is enough for me.  the game will go on.” satan:  “well, how about a cap of another 10,000 years. i am tired of being the gatekeeper of hell and punishing evil and wrongdoers.  i do not have your patience.” god:  “done, we will give humanity another 10,000 years and see how they are doing then.” satan:  “i have a feeling we will be having this same conversation in another 10,000 years.” time for questions: what would you like to tell god if you could?  do you believe in god?  why or why not?  does the concept of god make a difference in the world?  why? for better or worse? life is just beginning. “satan, on the contrary, is thin, ascetic and a fanatical devotee of logic.  he reads machiavelli, ignatius of loyola, marx and hegel; he is cold and unmerciful to mankind, out of a kind of mathematical mercifulness.  he is damned always to do that which is most repugnant to him: to become a slaughterer, in order to abolish slaughtering, to sacrifice lambs so that no more lambs may be slaughtered, to whip people with knouts so that they may learn not to let themselves be whipped, to strip himself of every scruple in the name of a higher scrupulousness, and to challenge the hatred of mankind because of his love for it–an abstract and geometric love.” ― arthur koestler, darkness at noon share

comments by johnpersico in uncategorized tags: bias, biases, delusion, denial, emotions, fallacies, heuristics, lies, truth if you have been following my series on searching for the truth, you will now understand the role of facts, data and evidence in truth seeking.  unfortunately, understanding these concepts is not enough.  regardless of how many facts or how much data and evidence you collect, it is no guarantee that you will find the truth.  the problem is that there are some substantial roadblocks that often blind us to the truth.  in the final part of my series on truth searching, i will review some of the major roadblocks that hinders or obscures or search for the truth. overview: a further constraint to truth searching is that we almost always rely on one of four ways of knowing before we accept the truth.  i have discussed these in previous blogs, but will briefly touch on them again to demonstrate how they both help and hinder our search for the truth. there are four general ways that have been identified which could be called methods or strategies for seeking and accepting the truth.  collecting facts, data and evidence are generally indicative of rational thinking, but that strategy is not the only pathway to the truth.  many people rely on one or more of these other methods.  the four stratagems to truth searching are: by authority (someone in authority tells you what to believe) by experience ( some life experience you had conditioned your thoughts) by rational thinking (you have some facts, data or evidence you trust) by tradition (your tribe, family, culture etc., has always done it this way) for a more detailed discussion of these four strategies, please see my blog “how do i know what to believe” there are strengths and weaknesses to each of these strategies.  by themselves, they are not roadblocks to the truth but they carry the potential for obscuring the truth.  these strategies become barriers to the truth when they are distorted by the numerous biases and roadblocks.  the majority of the ones that i will discuss fall under the following headings: denial delusion heuristics/cognitive biases fallacies ideology emotional biases denial: denial generally means that we refuse to accept any logic, evidence, experience, data, facts, authority or any other means of truth finding.  it is an outright refusal to accept anything that will change the deniers mind.  one example of this is the current debate (at least among some) as to the issue of global warming.  climate deniers argue that there is no change in the overall earth’s temperatures and that the warming is simply consistent with overall weather patterns in the earth’s history.  those opposed to this view point to a considerable stockpile of evidence, facts and data to show that the weather changes are not part of a historical pattern but are indeed a change in past weather patterns.  nevertheless, climate deniers refuse to change their minds. two questions arise from this issue.  first, why do they so consistently refuse to accept any logic?  second, how can we change their minds? the answer to the first question is simple.  people who deny the obvious are protecting their self-image.  for these people to change their minds is to admit that they are wrong.  this is not easy for many people.  an article by the mojo company identifies the following five reasons why people will not admit that they are wrong:  “why is it so hard for people to admit they’re wrong?” defensiveness equating identity and actions pride experiencing shame instead of guilt believing apologizing equals absolution for everyone else  some other reasons that could be added to this list include: avoidance of negative emotions lack of empathy lifestyle protection  this brings us to the second question:  “how can we change their minds.”  it should be quite obvious that no amount of rational or cognitive argument is going to be persuasive with such people.  research into this question has been ongoing.  here is one answer to the question: “a comprehensive study published in 2015 in nature surveyed 6,000 people across 24 countries and found that emphasizing the shared benefits of climate change was an effective way of motivating people to take action—even if they initially identified as deniers. for example, people were more likely to take steps to mitigate climate change if they believe that it will produce economic and scientific development. most importantly, these results were true across political ideology, age, and gender.”  —- you need to get inside the mind of a climate change denier if you want to change it — neha thirani bagri what is our “take away” then in terms of dealing with someone who is engaged in denial?  i think some points might be helpful to remember: you cannot argue them out of their positions. facts, evidence and data are useless. empathy for others may be impossible or fruitless. my final answer to the second question based on recent research as well as years of fruitless arguments, is that the primary path to change for someone engaged in denial is what might be called “enlightened self-interest.”  self-interest may be the only path to a productive solution.  meaning that if you want to change someone’s mind, you might as well forget about it.  however, if you want to change someone’s behavior, then the solution is to find a path for them to change based on their own self-interest.  e.g. lower their taxes, create jobs for their children, raise their income levels, or improve their lifestyle.  sad but true, much change in the world is not based on logic or facts or even empathy. delusion: when we say that someone is delusional, it usually means that we think they are out of their mind or that they are engaging in some fantasy.  we ignore what they are saying because it is too remote from reality to even consider.  it is drastically over the top thinking.  the google dictionary definition of delusion is: “an idiosyncratic belief or impression that is firmly maintained despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality or rational argument, typically a symptom of mental disorder.” thus, we typically ignore or give a pass to someone who is “delusional” because we think either they are sick or that they are not in a good state to make decisions.  no sane person would try to talk or argue a person who is delusional out of their delusions.  however, what if the person is sane and they engage in delusions?  this seems impossible but it happens all the time.  one example will suffice:  anderson cooper was interviewing some trump supporters on his show.  he asked one young woman what it was she liked about trump.  her response was “he is just like us, except he is a billionaire.”  millions of americans seemed (if voting was any indication) to agree with this statement.  to any logical person looking at the background, upbringing and behavior of trump, this statement would seem ludicrous.  it would seem to indicate an extreme case of delusional thinking.  but, by all standards of psychiatric analysis, this woman and her supporters are not insane. i use the above example to show that delusional thinking is not only the property of insane people, but it is actually a common state for millions of people all over the world.  here are some other examples: lottery ticket buyers gamblers people who think that places like heaven and hell exist people who believe in ghosts and spirits people who love to believe in conspiracy theories people who automatically accept every urban myth on the internet people who believe implicitly in horoscopes or astrology people who believe implicitly in the power of science to save the world looking at my list, you have probably found yourself in one of the above groups.  in fact, most of the human race fits in one or more of the above examples.  but, you answer: “i am not delusional. your system and concept is all wrong.  everyone else does the same thing.  the casinos and churches are full of people who think just like i do.”  yes, you are right.  millions of people engage in delusions every day.  delusions are often what helps us get through the day.  delusions are fed by hope that some reality is going to change.  but if we consider a belief in a horoscope as a fact, we are delusional.  facts, evidence and data all show that horoscopes are phony, bogus, irrelevant superstitions that have no basis in reality.  my mother loved to read her horoscope and also to occasionally go to a fortune teller.  my mother was convinced that she would be rich some day and leave all her children a million dollars each.  when my mother died, all she left us were bills for her funeral. “a delusion is a belief that is held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary. as a pathology, it is distinct from a belief based on false or incomplete information, confabulation, dogma, illusion, or other effects of perception.” — wikipedia based on the above definition, i could argue that anyone who thinks they will win the lottery is delusional.  if the evidence is a 100,000,000 million to one against you winning and you still buy a ticket, are you being logical or delusional?  if you believe in heaven and hell, but no one in the history of the human race has been there and back, are you being logical or delusional?  i state these points to demonstrate the utter impossibility of changing anyone’s mind who is delusional or who subscribes to some delusion.  whether it is you who are sane or your crazy cousin, anyone who is subscribes to some delusion is beyond rational experience and logic.  no amount of arguing will change your mind or your cousin’s mind. “there is some wisdom in the adage not to attempt to argue a delusion away. by definition, delusions are tenaciously held despite presentation of contrary evidence. how certain are we of anything? how might you respond if someone told you, you are not who you believe yourself to be? most people are likely to defend their belief about who they are and this is also true for delusions.”  — responding therapeutically to disturbing beliefs, by richard lakeman © 2003 what is the take away then here?  can we find a way to the truth through a delusion?  the simple answer is that we are all going to face people who have one or more delusions in their lives.  whatever the delusion they hold, it is the absolute truth to them.  i do not believe there is any way you are going to talk or argue them out of it.  if anyone can find an antidote to delusional thinking, i hope you will share your solution in my blog comments area. heuristics: in 1984, while i was in my ph.d. program at the university of minnesota, i discovered the book judgment under uncertainty: heuristics and biases by d. kahneman and a. tversky.  it was one of the most influential and important books i have ever read.  in 2002, daniel kahneman won the nobel prize in economics for his work on decision making.  kahneman was one of the pioneers in the emerging discipline of behavioral economics.  this discipline would go on to show that the concept of rationality in economic decision making was severely flawed. the basic premise of the work by kahneman and others in his field is that while most of us try to be logical and rational, our decision making is often flawed by biases and heuristics that influence our decisions.  the book judgment under uncertainty catalogs the major types of cognitive errors that we make and gives many examples of each.  one of the most common ones that many people recognize has been called the “gamblers fallacy.”  let us say that you are rolling a dice.  the odds of any one number being rolled are 6 to 1.  so let us say that you roll four three times in a row.  what are the odds that you will roll a 4 on your next toss?  higher or lower than 6 to 1?  many if not most people would now assume the odds against rolling another four might be 30 or even 40 to one.  in fact, the odds for rolling a four on the next toss are still 6-1.  this fact would surprise many people.  mentally, we confuse the odds of an individual toss with the odds of running a series.  the odds of rolling four in a row on a dice are much greater than the odds of rolling any particular number.  what are the odds of rolling a number four times in a row on a dice?  we can calculate it as follows: there are 6 possible outcomes where the dice are all the same: 1-1-1-1 2-2-2-2 3-3-3-3 4-4-4-4 5-5-5-5 6-6-6-6 there are a total of 1296 outcomes for any four dice –> 6 x 6 x 6 x 6 = 1296.   so the probability is 6/1296 or 1/216.  in other words, the probability is over 200 to 1 against rolling any number four times in a row.  the probability of rolling a number on any particular throw though does not change.  it is still and always will be 6 to 1. there are too many biases to list in this blog, in fact over a hundred different biases exist and more are being found on a regular basis.  wikipedia has a list at:  “list of cognitive biases.”  this list is broken down into the following three categories of cognitive biases: 1  decision-making, belief, and behavioral biases 2  social biases 3  memory errors and biases there is a great deal of information on these biases but the key issues and thus questions that concerns us is how do these biases affect our search for the truth and what can we do to overcome these biases? the answer to the first question is simple.  they hide and distort the truth from us.  if we misperceive the possibility or likelihood of anything happening, we fail to make accurate judgements. the answer to the second question, whether or not we can overcome their biases can be summed up by the following reply: yes and no. yes, we can provide information and education that can help to show the bias or error in their thinking.  keep in mind that it will be hard for some people to accept what you are telling them.  for instance, in explaining the gambler’s fallacy, the more number oriented a person is the easier it will be for them to understand the fallacy. no, you cannot change anyone’s bias with new information when you are talking about things that are outside their belief system.  they must have a framework in which to incorporate the data, evidence and facts that you try to provide them.  such frameworks vary in complexity but they can be taught. fallacies: a fallacy is an error in reasoning.  however, so is a faulty heuristic; so how can we tell them apart?  in fact, i don’t know if you always can and i am not sure it really is important.  looking at the online internet encyclopedia of philosophy, it states that: “researchers disagree about how to define the very term “fallacy.” focusing just on fallacies in sense (a) above, namely fallacies of argumentation, some researchers define a fallacy as an argument that is deductively invalid or that has very little inductive strength.”  no doubt many biases can fall in either category as a heuristic or a fallacy.  an error in reasoning or a bias can be due to many causes.  the common denominator to both categories is that we are talking about errors in cognition or cognitive biases rather than emotional biases.  you would think that would make these types of biases more subject to rationale argument but as i have noted above, that does not seem to be the case.  people hold on to their biases whether cognitive or emotional with an iron fisted tenacity. the internet encyclopedia of philosophy lists approximately 218 different fallacies.  many of these, i confess to never having heard of.  it would probably take another encyclopedia to catalog all of the reasons for the different fallacies.  i am surprised there are no ph.d. degrees for fallacy finding. after even a slight perusal of these fallacies, you might be thinking: “why bother, we can never find the truth, there are too many roadblocks out there.”  it probably seems like a hopeless task, something akin to finding the holy grail or the ten commandments.  i admit that the recent presidential election and its results would seem to support the invincible nature of stupidity and ignorance.  the world seems overwhelmed with those who would dwell in biases, bigotry and hypocrisy and have little interest in finding the truth.  the truth becomes whatever they are told or choose to believe.  the media parrots disinformation, misinformation and outright lies.  how can anyone find the truth amidst this forest of propaganda and distortion? nevertheless, if i succumbed to total despair, i would not be writing this.  as the line goes: “hope springs eternal in the human breast; man never is, but always to be blest. the soul, uneasy, and confined from home, rests and expatiates in a life to come.”  — alexander pope, an essay on man so, i have hopes that if even one person out there reading my blog has a second thought or an insight garnered by my somewhat tedious prose, i will be blest and perhaps have made a slight difference. ideology: an ideology is something you believe in.  dictionary.com defines an ideology as: the body of doctrine, myth, belief, etc., that guides an individual, social movement, institution, class, or large group. such a body of doctrine, myth, etc., with reference to some political and social plan, as that of fascism, along with the devices for putting it into operation. one of the most unnerving but interesting books i have ever read was the book “true believer” by eric hoffer.  this book explains the thinking or lack of thinking behind zealots, fanatics and what hoffer calls “true believers.”  after reading this book, it was clear to me that ideologies, whether left wing, right wing, fascist or even liberal could be dangerous.  the greek golden mean “all things in moderation” kept coming to my mind.  a “true believer” will not tolerate or listen to dissent or argument.  they are so convinced that their way is the only way that dialogue and discussion with them is fruitless.  in fact, many “true believers” will happily kill you for their ideology. most ideologies seem to revolve around either religion or politics.  probably one reason why people always say not to discuss these subjects with strangers.  the strong feelings that these subjects evoke have been the cause of much violence throughout history.  many blame religious ideologies as the main cause for wars in history.  however, there is a dissenting view that says non-religious ideologies bear the blame for the most wars and the most deaths throughout history.  “the truth is, non-religious motivations and naturalistic philosophies bear the blame for nearly all of humankind’s wars.  lives lost during religious conflict pales in comparison to those experienced during the regimes who wanted nothing to do with the idea of god – something showcased in r. j. rummel’s work lethal politics and death by government.”  — the myth that religion is the #1 cause of war people steeped in an ideology have natural blinders on to the truth.  they are convinced that they already have the truth and they have no interest in truth seeking.  in the history of wars in the usa, we can see the impact of american ideology on the world.  we seem to be constantly involved in wars to spread democracy and free enterprise.  we are blinded to the downsides of both these ideologies.  in fact, most americans do not see them as ideologies but as virtues that they want to share with the rest of the world. furthermore, because our ideologies are so good, we cannot believe that anyone has the right to reject them.  we do not care if the rest of the world does not want to share them, we will bomb and kill you until you see how good our ideologies are.  we are totally closed minded in our belief that democracy and free enterprise are truly universal virtues that the rest of the world must adopt.  we have become a nation of true believers in the “american dream.” what is the antidote to ideological thinking?  can we talk someone into seeing a new gestalt or world view?  i would never want to say it is impossible, but it is damn difficult.  nevertheless, examples abound throughout history of people who have changed their mind.  some examples in america include: abraham lincoln (believed that slavery was evil but changed his mind about what to do about it) malcolm x (who once believed that all white people were devils) george wallace (who believed in racial segregation) robert mcnamara (who believed in the value of the vietnam war) barack obama (changed his position on gay marriage jeff bezos founder of amazon believes that consistency of thought is not particularly a positive trait. it is better, even healthier in fact, to have an idea that contradicts one you had before.  smart people constantly revise their understandings of a matter. they reconsider problems they thought they had solved. they are open to new points of view, new information, and challenges to their own ways of thinking.  — the smart people change their minds emotional biases: we have come to the last category in my list of obstacles to truth seeking.  in many respects, this is the largest category in terms of biases and also encompasses the biases that are the most difficult to change.  someone who has an emotional bias is usually beyond the pall of argument and rational dialogue.  to understand this, let us take the following example.  we have chloe who is in love with michael.  chloe plans to marry michael and her parents are dead against it.  michael in their view is unreliable, untrustworthy and prone to anger and unpredictable acts.  they can see no reason why chloe loves michael.  question:  what arguments or logic, or facts, or data or evidence do you think they could bring forth to change chloe’s mind?   if you answered none, you are in sync with my thoughts.  you have all heard themes similar to this:  “love is blind despite the world’s attempt to give it eyes.” ― matshona dhliwayo emotional biases are formed by experiences or ideas derived from each of the four categories of knowing and believing that i briefly discussed earlier. we can derive an emotional bias from a strong attachment to anything and it does not matter whether we have facts, data, and evidence.  an emotional bias comes from the heart as opposed to a cognitive bias which comes from the brain.  of course, in practice both sets of biases tend to overlap and support each other. someone with a strong cognitive bias can become very emotional about their beliefs and someone with a strong emotional bias may tend to only accept facts which support their bias.  in either case, we face the same difficulties with trying to get the individual to seek the truth.  notice, i did not say see the truth.  perhaps, some or more of what they already believe is the truth or at least part of the truth. for instance, to return to chloe and michael.  michael may indeed be all the things that chloe’s parents believe about him but he may also be all the things that chloe loves about him.  he may often be kind, thoughtful, generous and fun loving.  the truth is seldom single faceted and is much more analogous to a multi-faceted diamond.  think of truth as having hundreds of shimmering glittering surfaces.  you turn it one way and you see some facets.  you turn it another way and you see other facets.  some facets shine more than others.  some are larger and more apparent than others.  you cannot see the truth without seeing all of the facets.  that is what makes truth seeking so challenging.  the number of facets in a diamond may be difficult to count but the number of facets in the truth may be close to infinite.  furthermore, unlike a diamond, the truth keeps changing.  the truth you may be seeking now will be a great deal different then the truth you might find ten or twenty years from now. in conclusion:  some final thoughts to share: “a desire to know the truth does not endow one with the ability to understand or accept the truth.”  — joseph crosby mecham “walk with those seeking truth… run from those who think they have found it.” — deepak chopra this has been a very long blog. thank you for reading it.  i hope it has helped you to think about ways to seek and search for the truth.  i was more certain when i started this blog that i could help describe a concrete definitive path to the truth.  writing this blog has made me realize how difficult the search is and the near impossibility of ever finding an absolute truth about anything much less a concrete path to the truth. i have found one truth for now though that i can accept and that is that we must try our best to keep an open mind and an open heart in our search for the truth.  perhaps i will change my mind about this in ten or twenty years. 🙂 time for questions: when was the last time you searched for the truth?  did you find it?  if so, what helped you to find the truth?  what roadblocks did you have to overcome?  what do you think would help more people to find the truth? life is just beginning. “we awaken by asking the right questions. we awaken when we see knowledge being spread that goes against our own personal experiences. we awaken when we see popular opinion being wrong but accepted as being right, and what is right being pushed as being wrong. we awaken by seeking answers in corners that are not popular.  and we awaken by turning on the light inside when everything outside feels dark.” — suzy kassem, rise up and salute the sun: the writings of suzy kassem “i may be wrong in regard to any or all of them; but holding it a sound maxim, that it is better to be only sometimes right, than at all times wrong, so soon as i discover my opinions to be erroneous, i shall be ready to renounce them.” — abraham lincoln, speeches and writings, 1832-1858 share
