Radically Innovative and Radically Beneficial

For the individual and the country. And eminently doable because the principles are nature’s principles, and, in the end, nature always has its way. In normal people there is an inherent desire and an inherent drive to do what nature wants/demands, so there is always an inherent force in play to do what nature wants/demands.

This website says that there are nature’s principles, and nature’s principles always apply in the same way that there are engineering principles and they always apply. This website also posits nature’s way. Nature’s way is defined as only ideas that are in harmony with nature’s principles have legitimacy and sustainability overtime. Nature’s way is “engineering principles” and “accountability”. 

Today this is radical, radical, radical. But why should it be? All that is being said is that sustainable (viable) human institutions are based on the same principles that govern all ecosystems, and these principles always apply. “So let’s do what nature wants/demands, and we’ll all be better off.”

For the last few thousands years ideas have come from and have revolved around constructs/positionals and groundless abstractions. What passes for intellectual endeavor is bouncing around constructs/positionals and groundless abstractions instead of grasping nature’s principles and running with them. For a satiric take on how this all plays out using the legal system as an example, view the animation HIRED GUN ACADEMY. Not to put too fine a point on it, today’s thinking is ludicrous.

Behind their placid exteriors Americans are enraged at the goings-on in the economic and political realms. What this shows is a commonality of thought that flies in the face of what the business and political elite have put in place, and the educational structure and the media have incessantly inculcated in one and all. Americans have good perceptions.

Zoning defines what property can and cannot be used for. Zoning is a description of a product. It’s an essential element of investing. Zoning outlines the environment of an area. Zoning affects peoples’ lives and the value of an investment. People know what does down in zoning. Americans have good perceptions.

Signs for rezoning hearings are part of the landscape. If the zoning on one property can be changed, what is to stop a zoning change on another property in the area? The owners of properties have a problem. So what have people done since zoning became common in the twenties and thirties to see that this could not happen? There have been zoning changes in areas throughout the country that have not been beneficial to the areas. People are living with problems that never had to be and should not be. So what have people done since the twenties and thirties to undermine the legality of what is in place, so that what has been done will be undone? Americans lack warrior intellect and action. Example

Nature’s principles are explained in the way that people learn things—by being involved in things and observing how things work. The vehicle of explanation is zoning.

Zoning is explained through a true story. The place of the story is Downtown Crystal Lake. Crystal Lake started out as a town outside of Chicago in the middle of the nineteenth century. Downtown is the original commercial area of Crystal Lake. Now Downtown Crystal Lake is one area in a city of 40,000 inhabitants.

The towns developed across America over hundreds of years were similar to one another. There were regional differences, but on fundamentals they were really the same. There are thousands of Downtown Crystal Lakes across America. What goes down in Crystal Lake has relevancy across America.

That there are essential principles and they always apply is explained through the imposition of a bar that the neighborhood did not want and did not benefit the neighborhood, and through looking at this old commercial area for what it is now—a suburban shopping mall. The imposition of the bar is dealt with in the book Americans and Their Homes First and viewing this old commercial area as a suburban shopping mall is dealt with on the website www.downtownCLCitizenry.net

 

Realities on this planet that govern how things work. The quintessential example is gravity.

The year is 2001, and the place is the Chicago area. Commuter trains run on all the railroad lines that terminate in Downtown Chicago. About 150,000 use the service on a weekday. The vast majority of people that use the service use it regularly or frequently. They don’t need the stations announced to them. Announcing stations only has value for the small number of riders that don’t use the service regularly or frequently.

Also, there are conductors that collect tickets. If someone is unfamiliar with the stations, conductors tell people individually that his/her station is coming up, if asked.

Forever it was a conductor announcing the next station when the train was pulling out of the present station, and that was it. Example, “The next station is Barrington.”

One day in late 2001 the conductor was no longer making station announcements it was a computer system. Example, “The next stop will be Barrington.” As the train approached Barrington, “Now approaching Barrington.” As the train pulled into Barrington station, “This is Barrington.”

I didn’t want to hear the station being announced three times. I thought it was unwarranted and annoying. The grammar was also incorrect, and a wrong word was used. I thought I was getting an idiocy blast every time a station announcement was made. The correct verb: is and not will be. The correct noun: station and not stop. Trains go from station to station; buses go from stop to stop. Correct word and grammar: “The next station is…” Conductors always said “The next station is….”

If the train stops in ten stations during a person’s ride, in one day that individual has been the recipient of twenty sets of egregiousness. If an individual uses the service ten times a month, that works out to 20 times in a day (one round trip) x 10 days x 12 months = 2,400 sets of egregiousness in a year. Under the Freedom of Information Act I asked how many of the some 150,000 riders complained about the unwarranted and annoying and grammatically incorrect station announcements during the first three months of operation. Answer: five.

On December 29, 2014, I rode the commuter train and what did I find? “The next stop will be Barrington.” “Now approaching Barrington.”

Some people say: “I/we don’t notice it.” What? We aren’t aware of it every time, but the way our bodies function we are aware of our surroundings. If we weren’t genetically equipped to be aware of our surroundings, we would have ceased to exist long ago. We are aware of our surroundings. Blatant grammatical errors and wrong words are annoying.

We Americans do not perform in a way that we are about standards and our well-being.

This idiocy has been around forever. Long ago groundless abstractions/groundless assertions went by the moniker myths. Myths don’t square with the way things are. Some things in myths may be factually correct, but overall myths are fantasy.

How the world is constructed and how the world works are long known. So now that how the world is constructed and how the world works are known, affairs are conducted in conformity with the way the world is (The working definition of intelligent beings is understanding the way the world is and living in conformity with the way the world is.), and myths are just part of distant memory. Right?

Wrong. Myths are bigger and bolder and crazier than ever. Given what is known today, today’s myths are blatant and baldfaced fabrications. Just as with the myths of long ago, the names ooze gravitas—economics, philosophy, theology, sociology. There can be individual snippets that square with the way the world is emanating from the fabrication industries, but substance the fabrication industries are not.

Just as the peddlers of myths long ago suffered from the conceit that they were wise, the practitioners in the fabrication industries have the conceit that they are intelligent beings.

If a citizen does something that hurts the country or fellow citizens, what has been done has to be undone, and all damages must be compensated. The amount that is going to take is irrelevant. If someone did something that hurt the country and it is going to take a billion dollars to undo the damage and another ten billion dollars to compensate citizens, the eleven billion dollars is to be paid period. How the nefarious one is going to come up with the eleven billion dollars is his/her problem. There is no forgiveness and there is no writing off the eleven billion dollars.

Constructs: What is in place is there because people of power and wealth positioned it in society; what is in place is not there because it is substantive. The term that we often use instead of constructs is positionals. What is there is there because it is “positioned” and not because it is substantive.

Normal people crave to live in a congenial environment and to prosper economically. When realities fly in the face of these hardwired imperatives, the inners boil. The concepts and consensus and force to solve today’s problems and for Americans to have a great life in a secure and functioning country are in place.

The problem of centuries is that Americans have suppressed their hardwired imperatives (the immutable forces that are in them) and have kowtowed to the constructs/positionals in their faces. Americans have thought in positionals and lived positionals when they should have thought and lived the immutable forces that are in them. For Americans and America to make it, Americans have to be the immutable forces that are in them and not brainless and docile bipeds that endlessly mouth and live positionals.

There is a problem. The individual confronts the problem and finds a way of overcoming the problem.
