Why We Fight

Russ nails this but his lack of knowledge of cognitive sciences leaves him with no reason we behave this way

Volatility

 

The NYT’s “Week in Review” started off badly with a stupid neocon spiel masquerading as a think piece.
 
But then I was intrigued to see this headline for the next piece: The Terrorist Mind: An Update.
 
Actually pondering why they fight? Pretty edgy stuff, especially for the NYT. I thought they were just “evil”.
 
After all, just because the fighters themselves claim to fight because the American war machine invades their land and destroys their people is no reason to take what they say seriously. We’re Americans. We’re the good guys. If we invade and destroy we must have the highest motivations.
 
“Caesar never did wrong, but with good cause”, as Shakespeare has Caesar say. Ben Jonson may have goofed on that line and called it incoherent, but he was just jealous.
 
Anyway, I was hoping to read a real essay in the MSM on the…

corruption in poltics

Can any tell me a few names of the elite who continually master mind the control of our election process and how they secretly meet to plan these things?

Then perhaps we can question them about their dastardly deeds, and shame them into repenting?

I have tried to come up with this in the past and because the list is dynamic and each person that we possibly could get to repent would be replaced by another moronic person who will continue to do the same vulgar dance of avarice in the system we have today. The dilemma we are all faced with will not be changed by angrily demonizing the elite for doing this when it the system that allows it. Although we think they would deserve a punishment in hell, I am not sure who wants to be the judge. Punishment for breaking the law is certainly not a deviant  because they are not disobeying the letter of the law they are disobeying the intent. Intent is impossible to prove  but we can all  easily see it . Do we think  it occurs when we have no moral compass due to our environment or upbringing and they have no compassion for anyone but themselves , is it the fault of the parenting, environment, or lack of an educational  system to that teaches compassion and intent?

Regardless , for now the political election  system unfortunately encompasses our mass media. We seem to to be mindlessly manipulated by the media who has taken the liberty to make the political process paid entertainment. We all know they do this in lieu of supporting the candidates who have a passion for doing the right thing and put up a charade for those who can afford to put their advertising on TV and provide us with a colorful narcissistic political American idol contest, with candidates who could care less about anyone. And it goes with out saying those that are benefiting from the system are dependent on the system, and they will fight to protect it.

Now back to the  dilemma…. how do we “change the system” is what we should focus on.

I agree that corporatism has  ruthlessly  treated us as human resources and I share your same frustrations as a member of the working class . So, I must ask what must we do today. Besides lamenting the fact that we are as Machiavelli put it “a society of conceiving thieving individuals” who when given the opportunity to do something unethical but legal will continue to do so. Machiavelli was not saying we must sink in despair over our shameful genetic coding , but to realize we have the responsibility to continually  create a  system that prevents anything but a  republic to ruling us.

We all need to be politically active and use  the nationwide system called one voice as part of our strategy. The way it is supposed to work is we look at the record of our elected leaders and we tell them we do not care who gave them election campaign money they will not be reelected if they do not perform their duties in a manner that promotes our republic and we have a report card we show the employees so they can see for themselves. Sounds to simple but in reality we are too small to make an impact, but the idea is sound we just need to get the concept into a bigger foot print.

We need to build relationships with the like minded people that I know can help make a difference.  “the unethical influential privileged” our so  called enemy  has been deemed the “elite”  wrongly as it has conations of good although it does reflect small in number, Like 1% .It has been that way historically and after all it only took 4% of the American population to institute the systems we have today so why should that change? And they did not have access to what we have in regards to communication. So if we get organized it will not take too much to fix this.

My intuition is showing we have a lot of fragmented efforts that we could bring together under one roof and if we made that a priority we could pull this off.  A search of the internet and I came up with a much larger list than I expected.

Our forefather only scratched the surface of the challenges we have today. Our own beloved Thomas Jefferson got so feed up with dilemma that he had to flee from it. The globalism concept that has embraced unbridled capitalism has opened its arms wide to this deadly corporatism which will indeed cannibalize us unless we inject some socialism and humanity into our systems. The ethical standards of a republic are nothing more that the golden rule has been around for a long time.

While not all men embrace these ethics there  are some thank goodness who do, and you may be surprised to find them in our government and you may be surprised to find that not all corporations are as ruthless as we portray them …after all corporations are run by people and do occasionally support the sanctity of life. If you want to pursue a few strategic ideas on how we can get back to the business of a higher quality life and get our self esteem back   you can blog with me.

Globalization Strategies

Question:How can a small privatly held U.S. Mold building or molding business  develop strategies for globalization?

Response:

The main challenge in dealing with any strategies for business growth is that they are interdependent with opportunities and being prepared to capitalize on them when they occur. Developing a global strategy will help a small business increase their opportunities.  However, not many small businesses have time to use this concept to their advantage. They are too busy trying to survive and focusing on the crises they have each day, so the organization is not ready for the opportunity and it passes them by.

The idea behind this blog was to help organizations like these develop a plan and realize the reward for going global.  A quick way to do that is to encourage them to take time to step back and see a bigger picture of what globalization means. Typically most small companies do not understand the concept of globalization, so they logically will espouse disdain for it and avoid dealing with it.  I have heard small business repeatedly continue to ask for help in dealing with offshore competition and believe they must fight it to protect their business. But, if they only took some time to understand what it could do for them in opening other opportunities, they could move from a survival mode to a thriving mode.

Going Global for a small business is a step by step process that entails some basic understanding of what globalization is. Once the concept is grasped the company can begin developing a strategy for their company in the context of their business competency. Growth needs to come gradually and be planned. Applying a global strategy a forerunner of growth  is no different. It must be gradual and planned .

The first step is for a small business  to understand and define  what it means to be global. This does not mean you have a business location in every corner of the world. It means you have a business strategy that can work anywhere in the world. To do this means your company must embrace these four global standards.

The four global standards :

1.You must speak the global  language  (fortunately for the U.S. the global language is English)

2. Next  you must embrace a global communication method through the internet and develop a global site.

3. If you are selling anything that is physical it must be made in metric units and sold in metric units.

4. You must be aware of cultural difference in the country you are attempting to do doing business with. Training in cultural issues is a must.

Now that you have the essentials check back next week and we will help with the details of seeking out your global partners so you can prepare for the opportunities it will bring.
