John Kenneth Galbraith

John Kenneth Galbraith rejected economic mathematical models and technical analyses - which precipitated the financial engineering of credit default swaps, futures contracts, derivatives, adinfinitum - as divorced from reality.


Are conservatives 'hardwired' to perceive threats?

"Conservative, n. A statesman who is enamored of existing evils, as distinguished from the Liberal, who wishes to replace them with others." - Ambrose Bierce, Devil's Dictionary

"The Americans of 1776 were among the first men to defend an open society and constitutional liberty. The most remarkable characteristic of this political theory sits in its deep-seated conservatism. However radical the principles of the Revolution may have seemed to the rest of the world, in the minds of the colonists they were thoroughly preservative and respectful of the past." - Clinton Rossiter

980 ADLatin, conservare "to keep, preserve."

1380 Old French - "conserver."

Archaically a conservative was a preservative agent or principle.

A conservative would be concerned with preserving his or her social culture and traditional way of living by protecting it from ruin, injury, innovation, or radical change by avoiding excess.

A conservative wants to preserve the land for future generations.

Conservatives frown on behavior outside of accepted and practiced norms.

Over time the word symbol conservative took on added connotations.

1790 As a modern political tradition, conservatism traces to opposition to the French Revolution by Edmund Burke, but the word conservative is not found in his writing.

The word conservative was coined by the French disciples of Edmund Burke, (e.g. Chateaubriand, who titled his journal defending clerical and political restoration "Le Conservateur").

1830 Conservative as the name of a British political faction first appeared in an issue of the "Quarterly Review," in an unsigned article sometimes attributed to John Wilson Croker.

1843 Conservative replaces Tory, reflecting both a change from the pejorative name (in use for 150 years) and repudiation of some reactionary policies. Extended to similar spirits in other parties from 1845.

"Strictly speaking, conservatism is not a political system, but rather a way of looking at the civil order." - Russell Kirk

The neo-conservatives that conquered America with the George Bush revolution were radicals not conservatives.

Conservatives are interested in preservation of existing resources.

The neo-conservatives (neo-liberals to much the rest of the world) were only interested in exploiting resources for short term gain.

The neo-conservatives must have known that embarking upon the path of global hegemony was a dangerous and radical course of action which could result in injury or ruin to the American political system.

The neo-conservatives were intent on bringing about radical change by fostering excess' in the financial sectors through radical deregulation.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
