To Solve a Problem - first - understand the problem! - CL

As I have learned over the last 20 years - you can't solve a problem you haven't even begun to understand. All of the institutions which have evolved - government, religion, politics, culture and all their sub-agencies have an effect on our success or failure as a society - but finding anyone knowledgeable to coherently explain their interdependence is near impossible. Why?

It isn't taught! Again - why?

Because almost all of us claim superiority in intelligence, understanding and/or problem solving abilities based on false assumptions and from our own self-assumed narrow perspectives - in other words, ignorance. We can't all be right when our beliefs conflict with facts of life - and this general observation applies to all the institutions I have named - all of them. 

Intellectual laziness is now the norm - self-righteous ranting has replaced intelligent, well researched and reasoned action - based on facts.
Real facts are not only not acknowledged - the subject is deliberately avoided, censored - or the person attempting that thankless task of countering the mainstream narrative is demonized to the point of making evil seem good and good evil. 

BTW - the Bible has something to say about that, but who believes that ancient relic, eh? DaBlind leading DaBlind!

Is it time to repent and recover our sanity? You can start here - - ''The other WHY? If not us, who? The destruction of the ‘American Way’ accelerated under my watch – and yours, if you’re anywhere my age – so let’s fess up – we were part of the problem. How so? We let a bunch of ‘developmentally arrested’ adolescent know nothings take over the entire culture and country – every institution you can name is run by so-called liberals (fascists is a better word). It took them over 100 years, but let’s face it – they are in charge and they are not bashful about telling us that they are.

What is the problem? We assume that electing someone and/or a political party changes the direction of the country, but nothing seems to change. There is a reason – culture forms our politics, not vice-versa. What is the biggest influence on culture? “Whoever controls the schools – controls the culture!” What about our government? Do you see where this is going?
What can we do about it? A lot – and that is what this website and the linked library are all about.''
