Anti-Fragility and Machiavellianism Part 3

Anti-Fragility and Machiavellianism Part 3

What are a few things that make a business or a country strong?  What separates a Zimbabwe, or a South Africa from a United States or a Chile or a Switzerland? The rule of law tops my list.  The U.S. has a Constitution and a Bill of Rights.  When The Constitution is thrown out, the U.S. will turn into a dystopia, just like the America described in Atlas Shrugged.  There are very rich and very poor people operating in the…

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  –…

These are IMO the best 15 easiest budget cutting ideas from the videos and How to Save $1000 Per Month eBook. 1) Cook and eat at home. 2) Ride or walk before buying a car.

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…

Sublimation – Ever Heard of William Reich?

Sublimation – Ever Heard of William Reich?

Reich was a student of Sigmund Freud who lost his mind and died in prison for mail fraud. (Reich sold a device that was based on one of his theories.) When Reich was younger, before he went insane, he had theories about sex. One notable theory was the sublimation of sex. Sublimation is where the desire for sex is build up and then denied, and hence the desire converted to energy. Reich used the theory of sublimation to explain the…

FI Dreaming? – Revive Your Faith – Not The Stockholm Syndrome

FI Dreaming? – Revive Your Faith – Not The Stockholm Syndrome

Don’t try to foster or revive the Stockholm Syndrome in yourself. Getting a financial education may be tough. You’ll alienate Kool-Aid drinkers and irritate phony friends. Wealth confiscation and economic warfare against nationalists, the patriarchy, Libertarians and productive people won’t help you financially (at least not after the victory party’s). No guru at this time is to blame for their readers to be predisposed to willful ignorance and learned helplessness. I would learn from finance and economics textbooks (and videos)…
