When you look at free market principles, you can observe the freedom that exists totally and completely within it.
Free markets are rooted in the theory of natural selection. Natural Selection is the process of supply and demand interacting with price and subjective value.
Each individual places value upon any given service or product and exchanges the dollar$ in his pocket for the service or product.
There is no morality in this choice.
There is no racism in this choice.
There is no religion in this choice.
There is no gender in this choice.
There is no sexuality in this choice.
There is only CHOICE. You VALUE one choice over another.
The why of a choice is absolutely irrelevant.
And why should this be?
Because motivation means nothing except in the minds of those who seek to market a service or product. When you consider this “motivational” pursuit, you realize it’s about manipulation. How else can a company or individual get you to emotionally react in order to move your choice toward their product or service?
How do politicians do this? What language do they use? What “scenarios” do they conjure up to instill emotion in you, manipulating for your vote?
People who want to focus on motivation are doing so for distraction; it’s masturbation of the mind – self gratification, if you will, for their own self-interest.
When you observe the reality from the free market principles of life, you realize that all interest is self-interest. Each places value upon aspects of life, places energy, time and money toward such self-interest.
Rationalizations, justifications and excuses are either to discriminate or accommodate emotional reactions; they are used to manipulate either toward an outcome or away from an outcome.
Why does this matter in politics?
Because Americans have allowed and are accepting the manipulations of candidates who are seeking to control our freedom, and doing so through marketing of rationalizations, justifications and excuses.
Rationalizing choices, justifying choices and making excuses for choices – all in the name, supposedly, of freedom.
It has NOTHING to do with freedom; it has everything to do with control.
There is no candidate who is running for office that doesn’t use language like, “the right thing to do…”, the “moral thing to do…” the “I know what is right…” ideology.
These are people who aren’t seeking your freedom, but just another opportunity to control you; to manipulate you through the power of legislation and government; they seek this power through your vote.
Do you like being manipulated?
Do you like being controlled?
Apparently you do and you enjoy this type of personal abuse by doing what? Justifying, rationalizing and excusing your candidate’s transgressions of freedoms.
What the hell is wrong with you? What makes you want to give up your personal freedom? What makes you want to turn over your choices to another?
One reason only: to avoid personal responsibility!
