Making Life Easy

The difference between life in the 21st century and life in the 20th century, is that the latter prepared us for life by making everything hard and difficult as their conditioning strategy -- in the belief that such actions produced its opposite as an outcome. In movies of the former, romances blossomed because those individuals started out as mortal enemies -- rather than the much more promising start of people beginning with greater compatibilities.

Schools (our primary conditioning agencies) made learning anything difficult, in the mistaken notion, that would make learning anything else seem relatively easy -- rather than it would discourage a whole generation of people turned off to learning anything! Physical education (conditioning) was the outstanding offender in promoting hardship, difficulties and outright abuse, as cultural virtues.

And so the takeaway for many of that previous generation of misguided thinking and its propagation, was that people learned vices as virtues, and vice versa. Those who now disproportionately populate the institutions of “rehabilitation” and retention, overwhelmingly learned the wrong lessons as children, and as they matured, did not question that authority to evolve a better understanding and comprehension of life’s realities.

It was quite possible to have such abundant knowledge of all and many things that were wrong and erroneous, while learning nothing that was verified and validated by one’s actual experience -- and rise to very high positions in bureaucratic (academic) hierarchies which were maintained by obeisance to the proper protocols and deference, than it was from actual pioneering of understanding in that field.

Academics made sure that their knowledge could not be tested by actual realities by promoting information that was impossible to test in any reality. They simply “knew,” with none of that “information,” making a difference other than to know it. Such knowledge is known as jargon, which is knowing the words, theories and explanations, while priding oneself that practical and useful information, was beneath the dignity of highly-esteemed experts such as themselves -- who were to be greatly prized and highly-compensated, because nobody else could understand a word they were saying -- though many pretended to and nodded vigorously and knowingly in agreement.

In the publishing world, such writing was invariably pronounced as “brilliant,” because schools of experts could argue endlessly, and thus secure their own job relevance and security, by interpreting, and explaining definitively, how many theoretical angels could stand on a pinhead. Letters to the editor of newspapers would promote and incite arguments for endless argument’s sake -- rather than doing the immeasurably useful, when people realize they can directly affect their lives and community -- rather than doing the opposite, which is creating the innumerable problems, they come to believe, can never be resolved -- when in fact, one only need spend their time not creating those problems in the first place.
