Was Adam Smith a conspiracy theorist? It seems he was. So, I suppose that makes him crazy – right?
Adam Smith is routinely deemed to be the first
economist and the father of free market thought.
Should we now disregard everything the man wrote or said? After all, is it not true that all allusions to conspiracy are products of the imagination and must be treated as such? Was Adam Smith just another trouble maker like all conspiracy theorists? Or, was he merely pointing out what is normal human behavior? You decide.
What if Adam Smith was alive today and wrote such a thing? What would today’s big tech fact checkers do with respect to Smith’s observations? Your guess is as good as mine…..but, who is
guessing and who is not?
Is it really impossible than the biggest tech corporations would conspire together to mold society in a way that benefits them? According to Adam Smith’s thoughts, it would be close to impossible that they are not.
Notice that stories about cheap medicine and inexpensive cures are also fact checked and
discarded. Could that be a sign that that big tech, big pharma and big insurance are also part of big tech’s censorship initiative? Big banks are not complaining. Who else is willing to help?
To what degree do these corporations control the essence of countless other entities and people in today’s economic arena? Who and what within the lower echelons of the economy are in a position to oppose them? Is the general public willing to give up the “free” stuff they get from
Google or Facebook? Don’t count on it. When anyone in society today questions the integrity of the order of things in our world today, Is he trouble maker and a kook? Again, you decide.
The Daunting Nature Of Reality PDF Version
Posted on April 20, 2022 by Fantasy Free Economics The harsh nature of the physical world is accepted without debate. We cannot go out side in the winter or summer without making adaptations.People work
outside in the harshest cold weather. This cannot be done without wearing winter clothes. Even so, those outside during extreme cold weather, look forward to the warmth of a fireplace and can not wait to get there. It is cold outside but we alter our environment so that we are comfortable. Continue reading
The relevant fantasy here is the notion that our leaders have goodwill and are trying to do what is best for the country. The truth is that in the aggregate, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve. All with power, elected and otherwise , are acting out of self interest. Politicians become like foxes hired to guard a hen house. Their constituents who voted for them think of them more as messiahs.
The Stockholm syndrome is defined in Wikipedia as follows. Stockholm syndrome is a
condition in which hostages develop a psychological bond with their captors during
captivity. Can we expand on this? Is it hard to notice that incumbents get re-elected over and over, no matter how badly they perform? Faith in authority abounds. The Stockholm syndrome is obviously in play with respect to humans who live under one authority or another. Why wouldn’t folks give up rights when they are under control of an authority…. when they are psychologically prone to do so?
Faith in government is inborn. Government programs that have never worked are tried over and over again with dismal results. Still , folks have faith in government , and always want to give these things another shot.Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”…Alert Einstein
Are people insane? No, faith in government is inborn. That is not the same as insanity.
Today, the majority of Americans have complete faith in government and all it is said to provide.
We have a massive reality gap in place and it is about to slam shut. We can suspect something
probably more severe than what was experienced during the Great Depression and World War II.
Americans are completely unprepared.
My point is to be prepared in whatever way you can. Is there a way to be prepared? I wish I
could answer that question. Certainly we are facing an every man for himself scenario.
