Common Sense and Objectivism: Power Through Obstacles

Common Sense and Objectivism: Power Through Obstacles

What do you tell yourself before you face a day or a year of battling the agents of dystopia and apathy? These excerpts are a good starting point. Excerpt from Common Sense, written in 1776 by Thomas Paine I do not choose to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon … if I can. I seek opportunity … not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, Humbled and dulled by having the State…

How to Become Semi-FI Rapidly

How to Become Semi-FI Rapidly

This post is mostly for the 70% of the U.S. population that lives paycheck to paycheck. You need a much better financial cushion than a cardboard box. You need to make sure your “friend” isn’t making up stories about you to screw with you, because you dare talk goals and values. (See OTM) Let me tell you about those tattle-tales. They’re as entitled as all get out. Let’s get down to business. Work OT and/or earn commissions. I would contribute…

Finance and FIRE From Around the Web 2-27-19

Finance and FIRE From Around the Web 2-27-19

Class warfare still does the little guy no good. Putting the government in charge of education worsened the problem. Few teachers will teach the truth about economics, personal finance, and history. If these subjects were taught, teachers of lesser disciplines would drown them out. In 2006, I made my site for the industrious “little guy” to retire with dignity or to be FI and (self) employed. Well, there’s still many public school grad derelicts who can’t differentiate between Wall Street…

Robot-Proof Your Career

Robot-Proof Your Career

The robots are coming. You can put your head in the sand. You can brainstorm dishonest ways to generate income. Or you can read this and attempt to make a plan for yourself. Normies and conformies will mock you for thinking for yourself. Following them leads to mediocracy at best. Let’s get started. Learn every aspect of your business, i.e. your employer. This not only helps finding a non-production job (the eliminated position). This helps you understand the company’s true…

20 Personalities to Follow on Twitter

20 Personalities to Follow on Twitter

I looked through my Twitter feed earlier and drilled down my top 20 Twitterers.  I excluded all the hall monitors, as they get all the attention anyway.   If you want a very short intro to “the scene” on Twitter, start here. @TellYourSonThis  – Illimitable Man tweets about Machiavellianism, game, logic, books and health. @esotericexposal  – Choice Christian commentary on the occult forces at work in theworld. @DamianProsa  – This young Greek businessman is fairly similar to TellYourSon. @WallStreetPlayboys  –…

Anti-Fragility and Machiavellianism Part 2

Anti-Fragility and Machiavellianism Part 2

One item I would consider when planning for investments is the theory that the elites want to devalue the United States and buy it back for pennies on the dollar. A flexible investor should be able to take advantage of the decline and recovery of the U.S. Execution could prove daunting. Despite what normies say, “the elites” are not all nice Christian people who want the best for everyone. Ever heard of Pizza Gate? Did the “mainstream” media push Obama’s…

3 Books and a Movie To Give a (Young) Man For Christmas

3 Books and a Movie To Give a (Young) Man For Christmas

Spy Game, starring Robert Redford and Brad Pitt, is a pre 9/11 espionage movie that is fairly realistic. Spy Game isn’t over the top macho. But, I think many people would appreciate the mentor-protégé relationship between Redford and Pitt. This underrated movie has a decent soundtrack. At the beginning Pitt is captured while engaging in espionage. Redford is required to brief his superiors about “Boy Scout.” The Nine Laws, by Ivan Throne, martial artist and Wall Street guy, is about…

Crisis Investing: The Captain Speaks: Don’t Wait For the SHTF

Crisis Investing: The Captain Speaks: Don’t Wait For the SHTF

The Captain Feels, as I do that an economic crisis is not imminent. But listen to his view on not waiting for crisis or SHTF to prepare. For more on actual trading during a crisis see: http://mastermind-university.com/crisis-investing/ Yesterday, The Captain consulted with a guy concerned about a black swan event.  This is a good video. A related quote: “If your enemies have devotion, passion, piety, and a vision. And all you have is apathy, nihilism, and materialism. You cannot win….

Capitalists, Visionaries, Nationalists, and Activists Should Feel Free to Challenge ‘The Narrative.’

Capitalists, Visionaries, Nationalists, and Activists Should Feel Free to Challenge ‘The Narrative.’

(This is something I wrote about mastermind groups the other day. Enjoy) Feel Free To Challenge “The Narrative” It seems “the narrative” isn’t helping many of the non-NWO kool aid drinkers. It seems most degrees, and many pursuits are “Worthless” as far as advancing a career go. By narrative, I mean lies and stories for deceiving the masses of helpless sheeple. Challenging the narrative might be an idea. But a better idea is to prove the narrative wrong. People you…
