Where does all this lead, you might ask.

Economically, Progressivism, Socialism and where those lead (Totalitarianism), all destroy individualism and Freedom. Any person who is unhappy with their circumstance because someone else has more has two choices for a remedy. First, the individual can take it upon themselves to build something to lift them our of their situation. That is build a career, build on their education, or build a following for a product or service they provide. The second choice is to tear something down with the hope of changing their situation. Tear down the individual how has built something, tear down their community by demanding support, or tear down the whole system that offers them the best opportunity to better their life condition.

Tearing down is offered as a glimmering promise by those who are naive or those who seek the destruction of the individual. The promise is that there are those who have “your share” of the riches in society. The hope to excite the lazy and the uninformed to support their efforts with the hope they will be rewarded with money, property, and love. None of these promises are ever fully delivered. The reason is these promises cannot be delivered upon. If a person has a large portion of their effort devalued, confiscated, or taxed away they will either find someway to produce without being notices, move to where their efforts are appreciated, or they will not produce because the effort is unrewarded.

Then of course people will decry those who inherit money, a little or a lot. Any person who would want to be taxed 50% on their inheritance is either irrational (believing the government can better spend their money), or dishonest in their saying so. Any person who believes Progressivism, Socialism and what it leads to have not committed enough thought to the prospects of this proposition. These forms of social control lead to the destruction of society, laying open a nation for subjugation to foreign influence.

The reason they do this is either they are ill-prepared for life or they are so out of personal control they seek to control others. A person who can control themselves does not seek to control others. They wish to control themselves and through their efforts benefit themselves and those, as they decide, around them. Learn to identity how those around you fit into this spectrum of capable and less-capable swimmers in the River of Life. Read: “

I had a dear and spiritual friend once who consistently listened to my dilemmas and woes at that time in my life who always liked to remind me over and over, “You can act yourself into right thinking, but you cannot think yourself into right actions.” I must say, I tend to think too much, so for me this was indeed good advice. I put it to the test on many occasions and found she was right. Just a thought for today. Hope to visit with you again sometime…Terry/Tedum

Hi there, Your friend telling you, “You can act yourself into right thinking, but you cannot think yourself into right actions.” is telling you to trust your life and happiness to your unconsciously conditioned instincts. That might sound good to you but this course of action removes you and your most refined thoughts and ideals from direct effect upon your life. With even meager thought you’d realize concerted effort is more valuable that herd mentality . . . in an overall and global-minded sense.

Your admitting you, “tend to think too much,” says nothing as to the quality and precision of your thought (quantity versus quality). That would be a better place to start because hoping you’re going to, “act yourself into right thinking,” is a pipe-dream floated by the Sinker mentality. For most, “acting right,” is due to the often arduous work of really thinking about how you think.

Or maybe you just heard the quote backward. I’m thinking that’s a possibility.

Always the best,
