Focus On What Is True

Fantasy free thinking is hard. I won’t kid you. Facing the world as it is and on the world’s terms is no short path to happiness. To know the truth about what is
going on in the world requires giving up life’s main coping mechanism. It is written that “The truth shall set you free.” Nothing says that the truth will make you

The present moment has very special characteristics. The most important of those characteristics is that everyone lacks information to use in making decisions. We know what happened yesterday. We have an idea as to what will probably happen tomorrow. We don’t know what is going on right now. The shorter the time period, the less useful information we have.

This is why with the Fantasy Free Economics, I make absolutely sure nothing I write, think, say, forecast or do is in conflict what I know to be true without a doubt.
The first of these truths is that life is governed and regulated by laws of dominance and
subservience. Happiness depends on believing otherwise. So, folks come up with alternatives to why things work the way they do. From then on, all who indulge in escape, are handicapped because they are observing through the prism of fantasy. When happiness is the only goal, perhaps fantasy is a good choice. When there are problems in the world that threaten our lives and well being, fantasy free is a superior approach.

There are a number of these truths that put you as close as is possible to being in touch with reality. Here is the next most basic one.

Nature provides only one universal incentive. That is self interest. So, when I see citizens idolizing political candidates and treating them as messiahs, I know they are completely misguided. It is highly comforting to think someone with power and influence is a savior. Since I know ahead of time that nature doesn’t provide an entity which performs that role, I know any candidate is going to be first and foremost self serving.

There are more of these, but by just never losing sight of these two truths, a persons interpretations of what is going on in the world becomes close to flawless. Always remember. An idiot who is in touch with reality has more utility to the world than than a room full of geniuses who are driven by fantasy

Why Belong To A Political Party

 Lets look at political parties in the light of reality using the fantasy free advantage.

When was the last time voters accomplished their goals as political party members? Go back as far as you wish. 50 years is o.k. Then ask, how much have those who work outside of the formal political system to impose their will on congress, and thus all who support political party?

Then look at all of the bills, congress passed in the 2022 session. Do you by any chance notice that on these bills that parties vote yes. Are you familiar with these bills? Don’t feel bad. No one else does either.

Support a political party and you are successfully guaranteed, You will be protected from knowing anything congress is genuinely doing. Join a party and the party thinks for you. Now, a politicians of a political party will tell you what you want to hear. Is that good enough for you?

Why join a party? One advantage is that you don’t have to think.The party thinks for you. Belonging to a party makes voters feel like they are making a contribution to the country. It serves as a great place for virtue signaling. It is a great place to showcase political views.

Join a party and you are taken taken out of the political equation.

Aspiring Artist

As I have mentioned, the Fantasy Free Advantage movement is growing. There are great advantages to living life in the light of reality. At first, reality is stressful and upsetting. After a time peace sets in and it is better than o.k. Suddenly, all going on in the world makes perfect sense. That is because you are interpreting what you see while looking through the prism of fantasy.

Why does the Fantasy Free Advantage movement want an artist? It is because I know how effective political cartoons are. I can’t draw. This image below is from years ago. This would have been a powerful cartoon with a message, if only it was a decent drawing.

This effort is not limited to my ideas,. I will post any cartoon that is in keeping with the viewpoint of the blogs I write.  This is for someone who might be looking for a place to showcase his work.

Egg Price Crisis

Folks, I almost never post anything other than my own observations based on the Fantasy Free Advantage, which of course boils down to seeing the world in the light of reality. Discard the lies of life, which are highly comforting…. and the truth just presents itself automatically.

This is an exception. This is an Odysee video. I am not fond of Odyssey. Big tech loves Odysee. The quarantined go there to interact with one another. This is great for big tech because nothing on Odysee ever makes it way out of the echo chambers.. Continue reading

Interesting Parallel

Let me say first that despite being shut down and run out of the United States, both blogs have started growing again. The Fantasy Free Advantage, is devoted more to natural law and issues of everyday life. Fantasy Free Economics deals with economics and politics.

Then there is the fantasy free movement. Still there are only six confirmed members. These are myself of course, Sidewalk Sam, who expertly edits both blogs,, my three sons and my wife. There are also a number of readers who seem to agree with what I teach and explain. The unique aspect of the fantasy free movement is…..there is no membership roster. Continue reading

Never Be A Sucker Again

Gain the fantasy free advantage. You will lose some happiness to start. In a short time any lost happiness is made up for with peace. Seeing life in the light of reality provides a window of insight that is only available when you are in touch with reality.

Possess the fantasy free advantage and one thing is for sure. You will never be a sucker again. In the United States today, citizens are trained to promote their own poverty. In the servile mind of the average American , they identify like they are part of a giant mule team. Everybody needs to be pulling in the same direction, right? What is a patriot to do but cooperate with a national agenda? Election after election with no exceptions, winning candidates tell voters what they want to hear. Voters vote for who tells them what they want to hear. Voting makes folks feel like they are ultimately in charge.

Very few today gain their essence without any influence from government. Even for folks who don’t directly work at government jobs, government has a surprisingly high influence over what they get paid.

Basically, Americans live their lives thinking that government serves them. This is not true at all.  Americans serve their government. Really, they serve the elite who manage government.

Look at the Affordable Care Act. This bill has turned patients into resources. Doctors are basically clerks with agendas that are independent of patient health. All healthcare workers help carry out the corporate agendas on which the bill is based.

What is sad is that repealing a law is almost impossible.  This bill is a killer. The death rate hasn’t stopped rising since the bill was implemented.  Like all bills, this one has taken on a sacred aura.

Natural Intuition

The link below is to an answer I gave on Quora. This is the only social media site that allows my content or links. I hope Qoura doesn’t commit corporate suicide along with the rest of the tech industry. It must be scary to have a guy promoting political division in his country. I do that because division is completely necessary for a democratic system to function.  To suggest otherwise would amount to supporting an authoritative system.  There are plenty of others doing that.

Why do things not feel real?
What I wrote in response is, that things feel unreal because they are unreal.  To a person possessing the Fantasy Free Advantage. this kind of phenomenon constitutes an epiphany.

This is because, being grounded in reality, unlocks a persons inborn power to notice and interpret what he thinks, feels and notices almost flawlessly.

Instinctive Propensities

What in the heck is an instinctive propensity? When people act, and do so automatically, the actions are in keeping with their sensibilities. There are certain thoughts and  behaviors that are knee jerk reactions.

Instinctive propensity describes a reaction that is in keeping with a person’s sensibilities. Continue reading

Where To Find Natural Law

“The most obvious example of natural law  being alluded to is in the Preamble to the U.S. Declaration of Independence.”
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

What is Truth?

Along with religious interpretations, every story in the New Testament is a model of natural law.

Religious interpretations abound. My interpretation is in no way in conflict with those. The secular interpretation can be explained in terms of the way life works. The following is a model of natural law

This is from John: 18

“You are a king, then!” said Pilate.

Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

38 “What is truth?” retorted Pilate. With this he went out again to the Jews gathered there and said, “I find no basis for a charge against him. 39 But it is your custom for me to release to you one prisoner at the time of the Passover. Do you want me to release ‘the king of the Jews’?”

When Pilate asked, “What is truth?”, he wasn’t being flippant. The truth was not anything meaningful to him.

Pilate had lots of power. What does that alone tell us? Since power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, Pilate was indeed  corrupt. Since he was confused by any meaning of the word truth, that is of special significance. That means he was evil.

What is evil other than being completely cut off from the light? There was nothing in Pilate’s life that did not constitute living a lie.

Is this not relevant in our world today? We elect leaders. The more power we give them, the more corrupt they are.

Is it not interesting that history’s worst despots come from the pool of world leaders?

Forgiveness Is Not Just For Sissies

Forgiveness is almost universally misunderstood. Words conjure up images and impressions that change what a term really means. When the word forgiveness comes up, the image it usually brings up is something like a bible – thumping preacher shaking his finger at a congregation, explaining what Jesus expects from everyone.

Why Get In Touch With Reality?

Getting Started

Accept Uncertainty

The fantasy free advantage starts with the understanding that uncertainty is normal. Some uncertainty can be eliminated – but not much. Out of uncertainty, its close cousin insecurity is derived. Uncertainty and insecurity combine and fear is the result.  Fear is assuaged by adopting euphemisms and  indulging in fantasy. Cold reality is too overwhelming  so it becomes  replaced with fantasies.

No one knows what life is. No one knows what happens when we die. We are all conscious. No one knows what consciousness is. Is consciousness generated by life or is it independent of life?

Then , there is the will to live. The will to live is more confounding than life itself. Whatever is alive seeks to stay alive. Even a blade of grass with no brain has the will to live. Who knows the source of the will to live? Does life have a purpose? Any purpose is not apparent. All animals, including humans must consume animals and other living things in order to survive. Focusing on these attributes of existence is daunting. The mind doesn’t want to go there – so it doesn’t.

In the Old Testament, the author of the Book of Ecclesiastes focuses on these issues and draws no concrete conclusions. The meanings of a number of Old Testament books focus on how to live life in the face of life’s daunting unanswered questions and mysteries.

The race to escape reality begins at birth. Every child is unknowingly born into an eternal power struggle.  Reality is replaced with fantasy because it is too harsh to cope with.  Our world is governed by laws of dominance and subservience. Most people live in an oasis of peace separated from all of the belligerence and brutality …. that is actually an ongoing process. The attempted escape does begin at birth. This continues throughout life. Reality always wins in the end.

Basic Unanswered Questions


During a lifetime, reality catches up with everyone a number of times. That does not mean a person becomes enlightened and discovers what reality is. Having to deal with reality is not the same as grasping and internalizing the concept. As soon as a crisis passes and usually while the crisis is ongoing, life becomes centered around new fantasies. Sometimes old fantasies are refurbished, adjusted, and re-applied to one’s life.

Regardless…. reality is what it is.  to all consumed in fantasy, their fantasies  are their reality. Attack these fantasies of life and their beholders defend them vehemently. The lies of life replace nature’s reality with fantasies. The truth is then seen as threatening. I guess that it is. The truth about reality is what it is – no matter what. In other words, the way things are is the way things are.

Why Gain The Fantasy Free Advantage?

What do I mean by fantasy free advantage? This is the advantage in life you will have based on viewing the world and society clearly, rather than making observations through a prism of fantasy. When you life and decisions are based on what is real rather than what life has taught you to believe, you will make a surprising discovery. Your power of discernment in the present moment will surprise you.  You will notice that you automatically know the truth with respect to what you are seeing and experiencing. 

Being fantasy free or even going on a fantasy diet is not without costs. The following are first the benefits and next…. the costs.

Benefits And Costs Of Possessing the Fantasy Free Advantage

In most cases you can predict the future. This is not clairvoyance. This comes from understanding human nature. With the Fantasy Free Advantage you know in advance what the behavior of any given individual or group is most likely to be. 

You can protect yourself from harm. You will know what other’s deepest motivations are. You will know who you can trust or not trust under different circumstances. You will know the true motivations of those who have authority over you. You will understand what to expect from people – when you have authority over others.

You will immediately grasp the truth with respect to any given situation. Those with a fantasy free advantage can automatically recognize risks, rewards, costs and benefits immediately in the present moment.

You will prevail in any argument given that you have a simple understanding of the subject. Keep in mind, it has to be an actual argument. An argument is not automatically a shouting match, put – down contest or shouting match. Belligerence on the part of the most formidable person determines the outcome of a fight. 

You May Not Want to gain the Fantasy Free Advantage

Are you content with life the way it is? If so, then why change anything? Is your income secure, regardless of whether or not times are hard or easy…. independently of good or bad economic times? If you are satisfied, why change anything?

Gaining the Fantasy Free Advantage leads to soul searching and self – examination. This can be a trying experience. Your friends and family might not appreciate your new found approach to life. It might irritate others to be around others who are right all of the time.

The Fantasy Free Advantage won’t make you rich. It won’t make you poor either.

If you are just curious, you might want to know what constitutes the Fantasy Free Advantage. It may be worthwhile to acquire an academic understanding of the concept. Just understand without internalizing. You can always get back to it, if you ever deem it to be useful in your life.

The Search For Reality

I have just explained why folks escape reality. You might wonder who might search for that – if it is all so daunting?  Often it is those who for one reason or another, are suffering in the fantasy world. Some do and I am providing them with the opportunity to get there.

Certainly, one good reason is to do so out of self defense. When there is no way out of a bad situation, getting in touch with reality can provide a path out and into a better life.
Sunlight is a great thing. That is until you stare directly into the sun on a day in July. We face a similar dilemma in seeing life as it genuinely is,  To a mind that is not ready for it, what the realities of existence are, are too daunting for the mind to constantly entertain. What you find when you remove fantasy, is in fact, reality.

Once fantasy is removed, an entire inborn false belief system becomes apparent. Much of human behavior exposes itself as instinct. Continue reading
