Who’s Yer Boss?
Innovation is at a standstill because tech industries have too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Manufacturers in Asia want to be like Western brands, but they reject the Western methods of consulting for their creative brainstorming. Asia wants the face of the West without the mind.
Looking back at the lingering civil wars in China and Korea from 60 years ago, not much has changed. “Blackmail by tears” from controlling mothers and self-made victims in America aren’t different either. It’s as if everyone has their own problems they hope to solve by bossing someone else. After failing, they blame God. · · · →
Fear Cycle of Placebo
Fear brings the tendency for a preemptive attack. “Do to others before they do to you,” so our fears say. It seems like wisdom. We call it “prevention”. And we convince many people to support us. Then we beat the opponent to the punch.
Soon after our first-strike, our enemy hits back. “See! See!” we say. “He wanted to hit us! The world is full of dangerous people! Cut them off at the pass!” So begins military buildup, escalation, alliances, espionage, strategy, planning, analysis…
But has any quantitative analysis ruled out that preemptive solutions to conflict could be self-fulfilling placebos? · · · →
Everyone can lift or lean, whether in prayer, politics, family, or economics.
Even in sports and online gaming, when a team is losing, some players seem to think that “blamer mode” will cause a comeback. Then there are players who keep going, despite verbal vomit from their own team and even their own coach.
They say that the “disarming” types of people are more focused on the people they interact with than anything else. We naturally trust those who don’t nanny because they don’t need a nanny.
It’s generally a personal choice. But it can also be a group choice. · · · →
Heal Tomorrow’s Families
Most kids today either don’t know their fathers or wish they didn’t. Could this come from having prioritized romance above family?
Young men ask, “Who is the right wife,” when they should ask, “Who will be the right mother?” You know she will respect your kids if she respects you. But no one wants to wait.
Those who wait patiently are constantly pushed, pressured, questioned, suspected, and slandered by those who want an excuse to distract themselves from their own failed choices.
Don’t worry about other people’s choices. Mind your own life. Do we know what we need? God does. · · · →
