This morning I learned that our glorified Senator Dodd flapped his lips and told the country that we have but days to prevent financial meltdown. It’s the first honest thing we have heard from within government in a helluva long time, from a man I would not trust to deliver my newspaper.
Some (what, 537?) elected people in government and none can be trusted. So today Congress will meet and pass some kinda bill to spend another trillion dollars to buy worthless mortgage paper. A trillion dollars they don’t have, and which WE cannot pay, and which WE refuse to pay. So OH WELL, Congress will pass some bill, the Fed will create the money, and let it all be added to a national debt which can never be paid. America is history.
I created this website months ago when it became clear America was headed down the path of collapse to death. I have written much in trying to re-introduce the essence of morality, which is and must be
- each human has the INATE right to life, therefore
- each human has the INATE right to sustain that life, therefore
- each human has the INATE right to property, which means
- ALL property of any and all nature — the fruits of one’s labor, of mind or body, and of happiness
- no human has claim nor right upon the life or property of any other human, which requires
- that each human is wholly responsible for one’s own life, and therefore
- cannot accept responsible for the life of any other who is not of value to oneself
- the use of force is the ultimate immorality, for it negates the rights of another.
Morality has nothing to do with religion, but mysticism by it’s nature refutes basic morality. Mysticism can only destroy morality, which destroys all.
America is history because we have lost even the concept of basic morality. Without morality as our frame of reference, we helpless to defend it and are doomed to lose it. This loss has Morality works entirely for the ‘greater good’, leaving for each human the option of deciding what is, or is not, worthwhile to oneself. This is the virtue of selfishness; of attending to one’s own life, and choosing to assist any other person one sees as of value to that life. No other may determine what is valuable to you. Each must must determine one’s own values, and act upon those values to enhance one’s own happiness. Each must determine and act toward one’s own values, and those of no other. I treasure my family and my friends, those who bring happiness and fulfillment to my life. Those who detract from that fulfillment are not my friends and family, and I refuse to accept responsibility for those, for they bring me nothing of value in return. Yet I may support them by purchasing the fruits of their labor, which is entirely voluntary, benefiting both and harming no-one. A free market is the natural result of morality.
America is history because each of has failed to act in accordance to this basic code of morality. When our morality has been infringed, we have not voiced, we have not refused, we have blindly accepted, and we have allowed. Each such infringement, once effected, can lead only to another. America is history.
We are now a global economy. The lost of America will be total, global, and the most devastating ever known, We will enter a new Dark Age from which this world may never return. Only a true morality in each human being can bring anything of value back from this new Dark Age. There is no time left to waver, there is no time left to debate, there is only time for each of us to accept a true morality and take it with us to our graves. May somehow, someday, somewhere, morality be rediscovered to a new era of enlightenment and happiness. We have have only today.
