No More Excuses!
For in reason, all government without the consent of the governed is the very definition of slavery.
- Jonathan Swift (1667-1745)
Wallow in Your Self-Pity, You Wretched Excuse for a Human Being - Freedom is the Alternative
No More Excuses!
Inspired by Jonathan Swift's (1667-1745) quote, "For in reason, all government without the consent of the governed is the very definition of slavery". The titled responsion is basically saying "Enough already!"
It's all about informed consent. Giving citizens the information in a way that empowers each and every individual to enact their democratic powers is, in fact, the idea for a functioning democracy. How to achieve this, on the other hand, isn't always each. If I have learned anything from Plato and his masterwork, Republic, the pathway to prosperity in a prescriptive model of politics is infinity more complex than the philosophy of one. Self-replicated and propagated across (and through) the Polis will result in systemic and virtue-based change. At least that's the Praxis worth living.
Humility Curbs That Enthusiasm
Inspired by George Orwell's (1903-1950) quote, "Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it.". The titled responsion is...
Humility is an equalizer when it comes to hubris and inflated egos. On the opposite end of this scale, self-pity and woes me narratives are self-destructive and counterproductive by all means of production, economic and otherwise. So raise up and excuse yourself for being belligerent. Humility is the control, humanity is the experiment.
t's a common belief that youth mistakes physical ascendance as conferring intellectual superiority and thus, it is more important to avoid them. I believe this can be an unfortunate misunderstanding of physical ascendancy and mental ascendancy.
The human race has been struggling for millennia to find a means to achieve intellectual superiority over other humans, but all attempts were failures. We are always trying to improve on our weaknesses and increase our strengths. In the past, we have attempted to conquer other tribes and races by using superior physical prowess or weapons.
Over time, though, we have found that even our physical power can be improved. So we now see that the youth are not immune to these mistakes, but rather, we can learn from them and use our strengths to achieve goals. We must realize that we can be as good, if not better, than our elders and that we can also be as good as our parents and grandparents. In doing so, we will be giving the youth a chance to develop their mind and their body into their potential.
Mental power is often overlooked as a determinant of success in life. However, the truth is that mental power is more important than physical power in determining success in life.
In fact, one should consider that mental power alone is enough to be successful in life. Even more important is that mental power is also crucial to attaining success through leadership.
Leaders are those people who possess mental power and are able to communicate ideas to others in a way that is clear, concise, and inspiring. Without these traits, no one will listen to your idea and you will not succeed. Leaders who lack these qualities are more likely to make poor decisions that may cause harm to the people they lead.
When developing our minds and improving our abilities, we must always work on improving our mental power. We must make sure we can keep our emotions under control, that we can control our bodies, that we can focus on just one thing at a time, that we are creative in what we write and how we write, that we are inspired by the things that we are writing about, and the things that we are not writing about, and that we are capable of taking a step back and taking a different perspective to see things from another person's perspective. to make them more understandable. These are the types of skills that will help us achieve success in life.
In order to develop our minds and gain the mental power that will help us become successful, we must work hard to develop our minds in such a way that we can excel in all areas of our lives. There are many resources out there that will teach us how to do this. However, we must learn the importance of working on our mental skills and apply them.
By working hard on developing our mental power, we will be able to excel in all areas of our lives. We will be able to excel in academic, athletic, personal, family, and professional arenas all of which will make us a better person in every area.
There are some great books and websites out there that will teach you the importance of developing your mental power. and how it can help you in all areas of your life.
There are also some books and websites that will teach you about mental power by helping you find solutions to the problems that you may be having. with your mental skills.
Physical power and physical ascendancy are not the only reasons why someone would want to be successful in life. There are other factors that will allow you to achieve success.
Extreme Freedom - Harsh as it may seem...
Inspired by Albert Camus's (1913-1960) quote, "The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion". The titled responsion is...
Harsh as it seems, the approach is a simple one; rebellious freedom is liberating, the alternative is neither left nor right, it is just compliant.
What a Convincing Speech
Inspired by Thomas Sowell's (1930-present) quote, "Freedom has cost too much blood and agony to be relinquished at the cheap price of rhetoric". The titled responsion suggests rhetoric within Thomas Sowell's plea. If rhetoric is cheap then the tradition and art, from Isocrates onward, of rhetoric are lost. Unlike the lost works of the Attic tragedians, the art of convincing speech is found in vitamins BC and E.
It seems that the greatest sin a leader can commit is to allow his people to sacrifice their freedom in order to save speech. Freedom from taxes is a precious gift that every person should have the right to enjoy, yet so many politicians and political candidates would rather let the people suffer for the sake of their own words.
Free government is a dream that the people have lived with for so long. But that doesn't mean that they are willing to give up any of their freedoms for their freedom. The people need to make sure that their leaders are not dictating to them what they should and shouldn't do.
One can't blame someone if he wants to defend his own words and then throw away his principles. Many people in our society will say whatever they have to in order to get elected. If they want to keep their jobs, they will continue to say whatever they are required to say in order to retain their jobs.
People may have certain things that they need to be able to live in order to survive. They may be willing to do these things, but they don't like the consequences when it comes to doing these things. So, what happens is that they will take the most extreme measures in order to keep them from being fined for doing the wrong things. It's the same with a politician, who doesn't want to lose a campaign.
Politicians need to realize that they are not exempt from the consequences that come along with every law that is put in place. Once laws are in place, the politicians can no longer make up any excuses or excuses as to why those laws aren't in place.
Every political leader, both Democrats and Republicans alike, needs to stop sacrificing the public's freedoms for their own personal agendas. Many of them may believe that they know better than the people about how to run things. But the truth is that they are really not that intelligent. They simply don't know how to lead, they just know how to act.
They must stop allowing the public to go without their freedom in order to achieve their own personal goals. That is the only way that they will ever learn how to lead. and become successful.
When it comes to your own goals, you must use common sense. Use your words wisely and you will always win the battle.
Unfortunately, many leaders have chosen to sacrifice the freedom of the people in order to get a better government policy, such as spending more money on things that don't contribute to a nation's economic well-being, such as wars. These leaders are just wasting everyone's time.
Nowadays, it seems as if most politicians are out to do just that. Instead of solving problems, they're only going to spend money on things that will just create new problems, which means that there are still a large number of people out there that will be fighting for their freedoms.
It's unfortunate that people don't realize the fact that they are the ones who are suffering because of this. They have a lot of freedom, but then again, they also don't have much money. So, they need to realize that they need to think like a business person.
The business world is all about maximizing profits and minimizing costs and that includes finding ways to eliminate as many expenses as possible. So, they find ways to increase their profits and lessen their costs.
The only way to eliminate a problem is to eliminate as many sources of costs as possible so that the public's freedoms aren't decreased and their ability to have the same freedoms. is increased.
