Corporate Capitalism

Corporate Capitalism is a corruption generating incentive system that creates an economically stratified society, that both stifles innovation and fosters an atmosphere of corruption. That it slows innovation for the sake of profit is obvious, but the corruptions through resource acquisition, media, and political manipulation are harder to see.

Why Things Won’t Change

In such a system it’s the propensity for the “establishment” to have a vested interest in stopping any socially positive initiative that risks a loss of power, profit or market share. These institutions have a need to self perpetuate themselves in order to protect the status quo, and thus an inherent tendency to stifle progress.

Resists Progress

It becomes obvious that any new technology that can make a prior technology obsolete, will be met with resistance. Examples abound, a few of the most obvious being the slow rollout of electric cars, solar energy, and the availability of cheaper more progressive drugs, to treat disease.

Forms Monopolies

This system has always shown a propensity for monopoly. The examples of what we are seeing today in big tech and social media show unheard-of levels of financial, political, and technological power and collusion. Any economy based on growth will always gravitate toward monopoly.

The Market has Become the Product

The reality is that human beings are being manipulated into a perverse form of servitude where the market becomes the product, where your value is based on your group identity, on whether you agree that racism and sexism define society, and are willing to ensure any disagreements, are met with accusations of bigotry and hate.

Middle Class the Minority

Since 2010 when the middle class first became a minority it has continued to coalesce, falling in on itself. The economic tsunami released by the pandemic has only hastened the inevitable, displacing millions as “non-essential” employees.

Neo-Feudal Techno Serf

Over the coming years, these “left-behinds”  will coalesce into one vast permanent underclass. In essence, the higher-order will have a pool of easily exploited neo-feudal techno serfs, from which to draw upon, people who have reverted back to a form of servitude, where your overseer is a faceless application.

Takes a Paradigm Shift

If your fifty-five or older and have been displaced you’re going to need a paradigm shift in your thinking about future employment. Instead of wasting time in an endless, fruitless, mind-numbing job search, instead, learn to market yourself online. Develop the skills that can open the doors, for your deepest secrets to escape.

A Fundamental Necessity

It’s becoming a fundamental necessity, to know how to market yourself (or a product), on the internet. For the displaced alpha, looking for the perfect vehicle, to take you the rest of the way, Affiliate Marketing might just be the answer.

Build a Foundation

If you have spent a lot of time building a social media presence, without a firm internet foundation, “you” can be “purged” as soon as you upset the status quo. In purged I mean you and all your posts deleted, with no backup.

Build Your Own Website

With your own website and a reputable hosting company, you have a firm foundation on which to build your internet presence, that is both harder to take down, and has the ability to back up and save anything you post. Knowing how to market yourself on the internet will be a fundamental necessity going into the future. The knowledge is available today, for those willing to look.

Aging Successfully

The Four Secrets of Successful Aging

  • Appreciate Your Reality
  • Challenge Your Body
  • Stimulate Your Intellect
  • Nurture Your Spirit

While all are important, for the purpose of this blog, I’d like to focus on stimulating the intellect and the qualities you need to do so.

Three Qualities needed to Stimulate the Intellect

  • Overall health
  • Clarity of intention
  • Level of attention
  • Attention to Our Intention

Maintaining our health both spiritually and physically is obvious, what’s not obvious is the clarity of intention, of our conscious will, and the level of attention, to the maintenance of our mental focus. Our brains are well-equipped and actually need to be challenged, no matter our age.

The Why Beneath the Why

Our intentions determine our experience. It’s the why beneath the why. There is a big difference between an intention to get rich and make a lot of money or to help people live a better life. Our intention affects the basic laws of Cause and Effect and Attraction. Even when, our intention is unknown to us, it will always have the same consequence. If our intention is to make money, then we are only interested in ourselves, if our intention is to help someone live a better life then we are interested in others, one is based in fear and one is based in love.

Fear and Love

Fear is in pursuit of external power (money), it raises and crushes hopes, it exhilarates and disappoints, it succeeds or fails. Love is the pursuit of authentic power (a better life), it fulfills and uplifts, validates and empowers. If your intention is the pursuit of external power you will attract people who are only interested in making money, they only see the world as either win or lose. They are impatient, with expectations, needing instant gratification, and when success isn’t immediate they quit. If your intention is the pursuit of authentic power you’ll attract people who are empowered and fulfilled by uplifting others. There is no false agenda, therefore they can delay gratification. They are patient and get fulfillment through the incremental improvement of themselves and others.

Learning Easier The Ever

Attention to your intention will improve the experience when learning new skills or a body of knowledge. There are many ways to gain knowledge. In my blog, “The Future of Learning”, I wrote “Technology is making it possible now for those that can, to also teach. The future of Learning in the 21st Century is where successful entrepreneurs will use a Mastermind approach, utilizing internet communities, workshops, and groups to teach their targeted market the skills they currently use. They will either promote themselves, virtually or in person, as the expert, reporter, or broker of the skills desired.”

It Takes a Community

Web sites like Wealthy Affiliates.com are examples of an internet community, created by entrepreneurs, to teach others the skills they have. To be a member of such a community and to learn a new skill set, it’s important to manage our emotions. Emotions and intellect are tightly interwoven. By becoming aware of our emotions we realize that we can control them only by being mindful of them. It’s through mindfulness that we begin to subordinate our reflexive emotional reactions.

Emotions

Doing something meaningful and having a sense of purpose, strongly influences our emotional state. The satisfaction you gain by doing something meaningful gives you self-definition, builds self-esteem, and keeps you young. Without a sense of purpose, negative emotions like worry, anxiety, depression, and loneliness can go unchecked. Having these emotions ages you.

Challenge Yourself

By challenging ourselves to learn new skills and knowledge, we better appreciate the world and our place in it. Too many allow themselves to come to a virtual intellectual standstill, by the absence of a meaningful challenge. This absence of a challenge kills the desire to know and leads to depression and an overall depreciation in mental dexterity, and we age. Learning new skills brings freedom and a challenging state of mind, that improves our ability to solve problems. When learning stops, time closes around us, and we age.

The Mind of God

In the book by Maxwell Maltz called “Psycho-Cybernetics”. He talked about identifying erroneous and restrictive programming embedded in the self-image and that we could systematically alter it to better suit our purposes. I was reminded of the mind being of two parts, psychology and skills. 20% was skill-based, gathering info and 80% was psychology-based, controlling behavior and emotions. He talked about the mind being an automatic success mechanism and how it was important to get the conscious mind in line with the unconscious mind. We do this by using our imagination to set the goal (picture) then letting the automatic mechanism work on it.

The Map is Not the Territory

In relating a story about a successful salesman, he explained that the salesman didn’t see failure as a blow to the ego but as a learning tool. He also said that we have a mental image of ourselves and the world and people around us and that we behave as though these images are true. See the supposition “the map is not the territory” in my blog on Neuro-Linguistic Programming. He goes into recognizing how negative self talk imprints into our subconscious mind (that doesn’t know it’s not real). I wrote a blog on how this can be the hardest habit a person can ever break. Maltz went on to talk about how failure is only an opinion and not a fact and only calls for adjustments and recalibration. You can do this through visualization.

Picture in your Mind

The mind thinks in pictures, not words. As we vividly picture in our minds what we desire, it will become a reality. Create an exciting picture of the future. Most people don’t have a clear picture of what they want. At best, it’s fuzzy. Write down the most important reasons for accomplishing your goal, and the biggest benefit you will receive upon completion. Big reasons keep you young and are the driving force that keeps you going when the going gets tough. We are able to stay young and slow the aging process by creating goals and having big reasons for achieving them. Successfully accomplishing your goals takes energy, effort, and concentrated thinking. That’s why it’s important to be connected to what you’re working towards and it shouldn’t be only about money!

Your Goals Should Be

  1. Yours
  2. Meaningful.
  3. Specific and measurable.
  4. Flexible.
  5. Challenging and exciting.
  6. In alignment with your core values.
  7. Well balanced.
  8. Contributing to society.
  9. Realistic.
  10. Supported

Cause and Effect

It is a wonderful experience and a great adventure to make conscious use of knowledge. To have a goal that we can plant in our mind and see it gradually take form. Taking something from our imagination and turning it into a reality, is what gives us pleasure. Age is a state of mind using imagination and our creative powers keep us young. We imagine a goal and use our intelligence to create it. It’s the Law of Cause and Effect.
