phs8: The Economy

Modern economics is far too complex and unwieldy to explore in depth in a single article… or even in a single book. So… what I’ll do here is to quickly strip economics to its natural core, present a simple ratio that will provide a foundation for a stable economics of the future, and then flesh out the framework. I’ll weave in some modern economic concepts along the way, to keep things in perspective. Continue reading

phs7: Regulation

Insight is the key to good decisions… and insight comes not from the brain and physical mind, but from the finer spirit within. It’s more an intuitive thing, not so much a rational thing. Continue reading

phs6: Education

I’ve long believed that the main role of education should be to strengthen our noble side and to teach us how to contend with our savage qualities, starting at a young age and continuing into adulthood. Foster good will and trust among children, help adolescents deal with their hormones and egos, help everyone to understand their basic spiritual nature in contrast with their carnal human nature….

phs3: Military

Don’t give in to fear, though… as the US has been doing since the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. There are too many other important things in life to spend the government budget on. Noble things…. Continue reading

phs2: Privatization and the Public Good

We’re noble-savage creatures in a rough world in which life kills life to survive, so politics gets complicated here on Earth. We don’t always have a clear idea about whether government is a good thing or a bad thing… a facilitator of public safety and stability, or an obstruction to human affairs. Continue reading

Politics and the Human Spirit 1: Introduction

Government and political systems… play a huge role in determining to what degree a society enjoys peace and prosperity on one hand… or crime, war, and civil unrest on the other….Our noble side is fueled by timeless ethereal forces deep within us, and our savage side is fueled largely by the hormones and egos that have been hard-wired into our physical bodies and brains and egos that have been hard-wired into our physical bodies and brains.

Aurora Theater: Another Tragedy Close to Home

Earth has become a battlefield for those two invisible forces vying to influence humanity—the troubled, parasitic spirits who act out their repulsive dramas through our lives… and finer ethereal beings ever summoning us to accept and spread their light and love. When the dark forces win us over, as they did in Aurora last week, the results are tragic. Continue reading
