Mike now spend his time in critical-thinking about social injustices, equal justice for all & the system of due process, government corruption, secret agreements & hidden agendas, political misdealing, cultural dysfunction, separation of Church from State, free speech & assembly, endorsing our Constitution & Bill of Rights as they are written, and the rights of all people to live in and enjoy a free egalitarian society.
Authority must be earned through meritorious, accountable and transparent achievements granted by the people which are governed; it cannot be bought, stolen, handed down nor assumed. All else is pseudo-authority without legitimacy and should be abolished.
The people of this country have granted the authority of our state, local and national governments to allow, oversee and regulate corporations; the interests & well-being of the general population must supersede the corporate voice, lobbying efforts and corporate financial profits least we become subservient to an unjust pseudo-authority.

To vote or not to is on the minds of many Americans, but if you choose not to vote because you don't like the candidates or their policies, you are choosing to accelerate the country's demise into fascism. The consequences of not voicing your opinion has serious side-effects. Choose wisely.

SHARE Tuesday, May 1, 2012 Conditioning For Fascism
If you can control the police, the Justice Department and the media, you own the system. Tow the line or go to jail. Machismo is rampant; money makes it so and the Federal Reserve makes the money. Fascism is the reward for not paying attention.

Wisdom is acquired through experience. Knowledge, turned to Understanding and
questioned with critical-thinking, only becomes wisdom when understood through the lens of experience. Fool me once; shame on you. Fool me twice; shame on me. Fool me a
third time; and I have learned nothing through my experience; shame on the
educational system !

Benjamin Spock wrote a book in the late 1940s which transformed child-rearing into generations of parents who coddled and rewarded children's brat-behavior. These children are now all-grown up and if they don't get their way, they will throw a tantrum and shut down the US Government. The brat-warrior Congress is beating their chest like monkeys and apes at the Washington Zoo.

A recent news article suggested that the majority of Republicans and about half of the Democrats in our elected and appointed offices claim to be Christians. But what is a Christian if they fail to live by the Golden Rule ? Do they do unto others as they wish to be done unto themselves ?

Americans live in a cocoon, financing war, starvation, suffering, devastation and destruction without ever having to look into the eyes of the "appointed" enemy, and Washington intends to keep it that way.

The suspension of disbelief has long been used in Hollywood to make a good story even better. Washington seems to not want to face reality, and hopes the American public will continue to suspend their disbelief at what is going on right before their very eyes and allow the death-spiral to continue.

To understand Human Nature, we must begin with an investigation into the first few years of life. It is a time when children take on the values and beliefs of their parents as their own. Children are seldom allowed to develop in their own right and are raised in an atmosphere of authority. As they grow and mature, they continue to seek advice and guidance from others, especially Authoritarians and religious communities.

The personality of an individual is determined within the first 3-5 years of life. The parenting style used to bring up children makes a huge difference in how the child faces maturity. There are logical steps and stages of childhood development, and anyone can become stuck in one stage or another. Fundamental Religions would like us all to stop our ego development at the Conformist stage, but maturity depends on many more.

The Republican Agenda seems to be to bankrupt America, so that profits can be made from corporate ownership of the Commons. Restricting citizens rights and freedoms are one way to silence the public from objecting. A Republican controlled Congress from 1994 to 2006 has laid the groundwork to reducing free speech and disregarding other Constitutional amendments have demonstrated their intent.
