We’re never told the Real Truth

Recent article: https://www.eurozine.com/change-course-human-history/

What if almost everything that we think we already know about “The Past” is mistaken? How can we find out what really happened in “The Past”? Who can tell us accurately?

Why would anyone want to mislead anyone else? Is it all just genuine mistakes?

What’s next if we have do have more informed knowledge, a more accurate viewpoint?

What’s next?

The severe addictions we have to deal with daily, directly or indirectly, it’s all of us

Explaining the Seven Deadly Innocent Frauds of Economic Policy
1. The government must raise funds through taxation or borrowing in order to
spend. In other words, government spending is limited by its ability to tax or
borrow.
2. With government deficits, we are leaving our debt burden to our children.
3. Government budget deficits take away savings.
4. Social Security is broken.
5. The trade deficit is an unsustainable imbalance that takes away jobs and
output.
6. We need savings to provide the funds for investment.
7. It’s a bad thing that higher deficits today mean higher taxes tomorrow

We have to unlearn so many mistaken, misunderstood concepts- become disillusioned!

Let’s start with “Where does money come from?”:

Surveilled into Oblivion

This is costing so much money- all of the world being surveilled as part of “security”. So we’re watched so much day and night, that’s where our limited resources are targeted.

It says so much about our world. Never mind feeding the hungry, let’s just SPY on them!

For “their comfort and security”- don’t make me laugh. It’s just so sad, wasting resources.
