With natural law, we can get it right with hardly any facts, figures or information deemed necessary. All we need is to know how life works. We do that by discarding the lies of life. We just observe the situation through the light of reality.
Look at the world through the lens of fantasy and all conclusions we witness are misdirected through the prism of fantasy. When comic, W. C. Fields coined the two quotes below, surely he was not aware of their significance to the situation in the world today.
“You can fool some of the people some of the time — and that’s enough to make a decent living.” W.C. Fields
My own saying in this regard is that “Lincoln’s observation that you can’t fool all of the people all of the time, must be tempered by knowing that the numbers who cannot be fooled are statistically insignificant. ” James Quillian
“You can’t cheat an honest man; never give a sucker an even break, or smarten up a chump.” W.C. Fields
Why is it hard to cheat an honest man? An honest man is anchored in reality. He understands that if he is offered a chance or a benefit he didn’t ask for, rewards go to he person making the offer and not to him. Most anyone who ends up being taken advantage of, has responded to an aspect of his own corrupt nature and is motivated by something like greed. Today, all Americans pay a huge portion of their income to pay for government services for which they were offered but never asked for.
Why not smarten up , chumps? Chumps are a tremendous resource to all who profit from taking advantage of them. Chumps are of such value to corporations, social media for example, who make a living off of of all who believe things that are not true. The task here is to make sure Americans are only exposed to what their betters want them to see or hear. This is where censorship enters our lives. Shut up and censor anyone who might smarten up the public. That would throw the public’s attention off in a an unprofitable direction. It works the same way with horses and mules. If you want them to pull in the desired direction, put blinders on them so that they can see nothing with their side vision.
Never forget that democracy cannot function without division. Eliminate division and you are on the road to totalitarianism.
