If they wrongdoing and evildoing are not stopped there will be no humanity later this century. My newest book, "911!" explains why America needs rescued from the death grip of the power elite and proposes a detail plan for rescuing America and creating a new People's America.

My recent articles have delved into the nature of human nature covering the subjects--
thinking, believing and seeing, making choices, human life, and forgiveness. This brief article explores the human nature of wishing. As before, I will consult various "authorities" on the matter of wishing.

"Always wanting more" is an operational definition of "hedonism." This brief article is my "mea culpa." Inexplicably, I overlooked hedonism per se as a trait in my "psychoscope" of the evil superpower elite in America's corpocracy. This article seeks an answer to why our species is always wanting more.

What is our very nature as human beings? Philosophers, poets, psychologists and other human beings ad nauseum down through the ages have addressed that question. Is it presumptuous or arrogant of me to chime in with my two cents? Or make it three cents since I will "only" tackle three attributes of human nature; thinking, believing, and seeing. To be sure, though, they comprise a big chunk of our human nature.

This article explores making choices, a subject that is not nearly as simple or commonplace as it may seem. You will learn to calculate your own "liberty quotient" to give you an idea of how free you are to make choices. You will read about a silly psychological experiment in which the experimenters incorrectly concluded that "hubris," or being elated about having made a good choice, is not possible!
SHARE Saturday, March 4, 2023 Human Life Dissected
This short article discusses the author's non-mathematical equation of human life involving the person, the context on the left side and the resulting behavior and its consequences on the right side. The author then contrasts "dissection" with the late and famous psychologist B.F. Skinner's explanation of human life.

I was prompted to write this article after reading an article by a very distinguished law professor, Martha Minnow.  She is a proponent of forgiveness as a substitute for vengeance. I am NOT a proponent of forgiveness for any purpose! I have thoroughly researched and pondered the matter. This short article gives you my day in court so to speak.

Neither protestors, even millions of them, and certainly not a civilly disobedient public could ever overthrow America's evil and unrivalled power elite and establish a new America with a true democracy serving the common good and at peace with the world.
This article shows a way to avoid Doomsday for humanity including any readers' descendants later this century.

Despite spiraling gun violence and deaths, Congress remains chained to the gun and ammunition industries and their lobbyist, the National Rifle Association. Recently, though, Congress allowed funding of studies on how to reduce gun violence. What has followed is a charade of "silly science' studies, such as seeing whether turning vacant lots into civic gardens, e.g., will reduce firearm violence in Detroit.

This article briefly reviews the current human condition caused by the US corpocracy; recommends a prescription for philanthropists to follow toward improving dramatically the human condition in America; and proposes that philanthropists Bill Gates and/or Warren Buffett launch initiatives that would immeasurably improve the human condition in America, with overflows world-wide and would prevent Doomsday later this century.

I wrote this article after reading Ellen Brown's article in this journal on the need for a "reset that serves the people." She knows that I have promoted her Public Banking Institute initiative enthusiastically in my books. What I want her and readers of this journal to know is that I disagree with her excessive concerns about national debt, her misreading of U.S. history, and her proposed solution for a reset.

Hardened beliefs are equivalent to hardened ideologies cast in immovable stone. Ideologies serve as useful rationalizations for people to act immorally. This article briefly examines theism, fascism, communism, economic isms, and racism.

The future of humanity may be lost if Public Enemy No. 1 is not stopped in its tracks. While it is the world's most powerful enemy, it has an Achilles Heel that can be targeted legally, peacefully, and successfully, but only if Americans unite to form a U.S. Democracy Corps.

This article is its author's lamentations over the years he spent developing, presenting and then seeking people rich enough to contract out to one or more organizations and/or individuals to implement his plan, "Democracy Pow!er" to rescue America from its wrongdoing and evildoing power elite. Since nothing has happened, the author asks readers' advice on what to do next.

Any calamity, whether a natural disaster or a man-made one, perhaps more than any other large-scale event of grave consequence, shows the true, cruel character of America's power elite. They make most calamities and profit in doing so. And they flee from natural disasters while still managing to profit from them.

The purpose of this article is straightforward, to make a convincing argument that war is neither unavoidable nor just nor inevitable. I start by "enlisting" (that word is not really meant to have military connotations) the "reinforcement" (ditto the first parenthetical) of luminaries down through the ages and what they have said against war. Following them, I give my research and analysis to back up my argument.

"911!" is the title of my new book. You immediately recognize the title as the nationwide telephone number to call for help or rescue. My choice of this title was deliberate. America and the world need to be rescued from the wrongdoing and evildoing by the power elite of America's corpocracy, or the Devil's marriage between Corporate America and Government America, with the latter the lackey of the former.

Who exactly are these power elite? Their forebearers were the immigrant plutocrats, who invaded and stole land occupied by the first inhabitants. America has never been a democracy of self-rule. It has always been a corpocracy with the corporate power elite prevailing over the government's power elite.1 America's power elite are the evil doers of America's corpocracy.

All but a tiny yet mighty group of Americans are at the top of the "Power Tower" The rest of use are at lower levels. The "les miserable" are at the very bottom. This book explains the power elite in detail and suggest ways to "level the living field" and turn the power tower into a power rectangle in which power is more evenly distributed.
