SYMBOLS ARE AT THE CORE OF TRUST AND TRADITION

Within a high trust society, bonds are formed between souls, that share an understanding of the importance of preserving their community. There is a universal system of time keeping, allowing for planning. The four seasons provide structure to procure proper water, plant crops, tend to livestock. The barter and trade mechanism allows procurement of textiles, metals, fabrics, potions. There is a framework for universal understanding of things that people can see, as they share their description within bonds that are forged, the affirmation of a neighbor seeing the objective reality another member of the high trust society community witnesses…this allows for abbreviated efforts of expression. Symbols are able to be adapted. Simple symbols, like these here:

⦷ – Circled Parallel

⊗ – No Entry

⑭ – Fourteen

✇ – Chemical

⨁ – Sun Cross

The symbols come to signify easily understandable concepts to highly complex subject matter. Symbols reveal, symbols conceal. For many years I’ve read into symbols, the arrangement of using multiple symbols from a specific strata, also patterns of arrangement of symbols throughout things from my youth, Celtic Tarot cards for instance. At the core of the symbols are some universally understandable concepts.

    It’s easy to lose perspective at how good things are now despite all the negativity in the news and the chronic dysfunction of the political class. Conditions for the professional class are better than ever compared to probably any time in US history for wealth creation, both in terms of high wages and the ability… Continue reading Pushing back against the ‘WTF happened in 1971’ thesis

    This week saw two billionaire-led initiatives compressed into just a single week: the September 14th Apple Keynote event, lead by billionaire Apple CEO Tim Cook; and second, the Space-X Inspiration 4 launch, led by billionaire Elon Musk, which yesterday successfully landed.

    It is commonly assumed that the social sciences such as finance or economics, in contrast to the ‘hard sciences’, are unpredictable, or that the social sciences are ‘chaotic’ and hence not amenable to the sort of rigid, top-down thinking and model building of the hard sciences. Physics has models of high predictive value, but behavioral… Continue reading How Systems Beat Crowds

    Last week Texas shook the world with a surprise law that circumvented Roe v. Wade through the civil courts. The left, especially online, to the suprise of no one, was apoplectic. Less than a week later, Biden upped the ante by signing an executive order mandating Covid vaccines for employees of companies with over 100… Continue reading How the Vacuum of Leadership in Washington led to Rage Online

    Saw this viral Scott Adams tweet Three things we learned in the past year: 1. If you don't look for a problem, logically, it does not exist. 2. "Do your own research" leads to eating horse pills, snarfing bleach, and dying. 3. It's a coincidence that every public health policy is also good for big… Continue reading Ignoring the ‘Expert Consensus’ Can Be Very Profitable

    A conspiracy would seem to suggest that all Jews are operating under a similar directive. But being over-represented in all areas of society does not imply a conspiracy unless it can be shown that they are all acting under a common goal, yet the fact that Jews not uncommonly take diametrically opposing views on all… Continue reading The Jewish Question

    I have been thinking about the social class structure/hierarchy in America. With the exception of the underclass, it’s not like one category is necessarily worse or ranks higher than another. For example, elites have the most power but the most responsibility and little autonomy. 1. Elites. As the title suggests, these people are at the… Continue reading The class structure of America

    From New York Magazine Why the GOP Is Ideologically Lost Nevertheless, the ideological incoherence of the contemporary GOP is unusually severe. The Reaganites could not practice what they preached; post-Trump Republicans can’t settle on a catechism to hypocritically recite. The party has a set of unwavering transactional commitments (to reactionary billionaires, provincial capitalists, and the… Continue reading The contradictions of pragmatism

Some men are so afraid of even the word, power, that they reduce themselves and wither away from the actions that could serve them and others effectively.

Not only is that wrong. It’s immoral. Who are we to shrink away from what could be because we’re intimidated by how others may perceive us?

I, for one, am interested in power, and all the influence, authority, and credibility that comes with it.

Sure, there is a line we ought to be careful of crossing on our quest to become more powerful but harnessed effectively, power becomes an incredible tool for good in this world.

If only more of us, as men, learned more about the laws of power and the dynamics of human nature, we’d be able to lead others more effectively. Unfortunately, many men believe that even exploring these concepts is an immoral pursuit. And, although they can be used to hurt others, they can also be used to fulfill our responsibilities to protect, provide, and preside.

Today, I am joined by multiple New York Times Bestselling Author, Robert Greene to talk about the negative stigma that comes with power and human nature dynamics. We also cover embracing weirdness, what he refers to as “power games,” how life isn’t always a win-win, why so many people have incorporated whining as a tactic for power, and why manipulation isn’t inherently wrong.
