action

this world of ours is shaped through action..

Beatrice A. MacGuire: Oops. Just learned that: Henry Ford KILLED the electric car,
in the name of Big Oil. Here is the story:

“The Ford Motor Company was a subsidiary of the Standard Oil Company!!”

In 1908, Henry Ford began mass production of the infamous gasoline air polluting car known as the Model T. Most people in the U.S. believed that automobiles would be powered by the newly developed wonder of ELECTRICITY. What most people did not realize was that Ford Motor Company was a SUBSIDIARY of the Rockefeller owned Standard Oil Company.

When the other car companies saw the vast profits that Ford was making on his gasoline powered Model T, they abandoned the electric car and began to produce their own air polluting cars.

In the early 20th century, National City Lines, which was a partnership of General Motors, Firestone, and Standard Oil of California, purchased many electric tram networks across the country to dismantle them and replace them with GM buses. The partnership was convicted for this conspiracy, but the ruling was overturned in a higher court. Electric tram line technologies could be used to recharge BEVs and PHEVs on the highway while the user drives, providing virtually unrestricted driving range.

    The year was 1964, the year of the Beatles, the year of the Stones, the year after JFK. My brother’s first record was a swirling orange and yellow 45 of She Loves You. My parents’, who bought the monograph, first records were The Highwaymen and Mario Lanza’s The Student Prince. Favorite TV – Beverly Hillibillies and Bugs Bunny. I was 6 years old and already dreaming about a world that works for everyone, which meant that my marble collection could conquer all!

    Economists have been leading the world and humanity down the garden path of self destruction, especially in the last 40 years.

    Thanks to their miseducation and bad advice, the world is heading into a major depression, which makes their predictions and advice worthless, as it always has been. .
    Their GDP is a fraud and there’s absolutely no way to “recovery” and further “growth”, because there are 7 billion people, with 3 billion more in the next 20 years and finite resources, now controlled and exploited by special interests, causing incredible poverty and starvation, growing by the minute, while the GPD figures also grow.

    In any recession, or depression, the so called “educated” are the first to go. I have seen their fate in the last depression and in the post war years, and that was when I decided to learn a trade, because people trained in the logical world of trades, especially on a piece of land, could always find something to do and exchange for bread, while the “educated” were starving.

    I had my education and was 28 when I went into an apprenticeship and never looked back, because one trade led to another and toward self sufficiency.

    “Jobs” and “32% higher earnings” are garbage, meaning total reliance on the system and when the system croaks, so do the “earnings”.

    Our present system relies on total enslavement and subservience to a ruling sector, exploiting humanity and resources life depends on with the perceived energy of imaginary money, sold by the priesthood of economists.

    If they had any brains they would work on how to make people and societies self reliant to avoid the criminal economic ups and downs caused by their ignorance and the gambling casinos of the so called “markets” that have nothing to do with real economics, or real markets by people, for people.

    institutionalized education is a myth
    The problem with the study is that it shows up a hypothetical income difference between a degree holder and, presumably, a high school diploma-only holder as if that alone warrants anything. Relevant, I suppose, for securing the tenured and invested but not so much for real people.

    And untrue in my experience. You want to see rich people – look to entrepreneurs, landlords and people who actually MAKE stuff.

    First off, degrees aren’t relevant to work. All a degree tells an employer is that you had the perseverance to endure mindless drudgery and theoretical clap-trap. Not a bad quality if it is the government hiring but for anyone else it just suggests that you are malleable to NOW learning the job they have for you.

    And it won’t look at all like the university implied.

    The truth is: our education system sucks. And it sucks because it is based on putting out assembly line workers or else ‘elitists’ who pontificate (not unlike this comment, actually). It’s out of date.

    We need an education system not rooted in 50’s thinking. We need ‘new thinkers’, new ideas, new institutions. We need the kind of learning dynamism that spawned Silicon Valley.

    Don’t teach my kid to be an accountant or lawyer or GOD FORBID – a teacher (it is like embalming him). Instead – give ’em a lab and a chance to whack at new battery technology, new biology, even new nuclear power crap…

    Personally, I hope the next ‘school’ is one of cutting-edge environmentalism. We need it.

    Right on Brother!!!

    I began my degree in Business Administration – end result – business widgets to fill out forms that rape one country of their money so an industrialist in another can make another billion – oh and of course not ask pesky questions while they are filling them out.

    Ended my degree in philosphy – a worthy cause you might say, but rather dim outcome there as well. New thought? Naw. Plato had it right 2500 years ago and western philosophy has been wanking off to it ever since.

    Education, mmm let’s see….. ah a yes, a Phd. lecturer in a final year Education degree course on the philosophy of Education gave these future teaching widgets a definition of philosophy as the study of thinking.

    Education is about leaning new things one would imagine, so why do we teach everyone stuff that’s already known? Because that can be controlled.

    Right Brother….

    Remember… a good question will take you infinitely further than a good answer on a bad day.
