About Thos

Bio

Born in Watt's, live in Texas. Closing in on 60. As Ian Anderson would say, Life is a Long Song. As Zappa would say, All of life is one song. OK, I like music. The Universe is one note. You are a part of that note. I read a lot, but not as much as Art Garfunkel. I experienced a lot of weird stuff, from ghosts, Ufo's, back from the dead and some strange and cool paradigm moments. I enjoy simple things and good stories. Everyone has a story. What is yours? I'm writing a book on some of these things that have happened in my life. I can reflect back and have met some terrific people. From Cousin Herb to Reagan. Fed Julia Child and had soup with Darth Vader. (he loves soup) Sat next to Linus Pauling and took a bus ride with David Niven. Spent a weekend at David Packard's house, spent a day fishing with Phil Lesh.

An idea worth spreading

It's called the Truth. Go out and do your homework. Don't be a sheeple content on Government taking care of you. Always seek the truth. Here's an idea worth spreading.

You'll need to read two books. I don't profit from either.
Not by Fire, But of Ice, and
Magnetic Reversal and Evolutionary Leaps.
Both by Robert Felix.

Great ideas.

I'm passionate about

The reality of life. Music, Wine, Ideas.

If we were to build a new society from scratch, how can we find the best designs to do so - and what are they?
The occupy movement is artificial. It's made up of political groups who you referred to in your introduction when you said, "How do we put the blueprint into practise without being regulated, taxed or sabotaged by preexisting governments?" It's the governments that are behind the occupy movement. The problem with the economies today aren't the banks or the 1%, it's the governments. They have caused the problems in the first place. Most occupiers are sheeple doing the governments work. Unbind your mind, There is no time, to like the stamps, and paste them in, Discorporate and then, you can begin. The money is being financed through socialist, communist and control organizations. Don't kid yourself. Maybe read the book, "Road to Serfdom". The "monetary system" is all created by Government, not business.

Have to basically agree with; "Remember that, Mr. Aksnes as you screen applicants for your new society." If you want to pick and choose, it will only reflect the mindset of the Picker and Chooser. Following the natural way of letting the cream rise to the top, is the only way to get true diversity and progress. Everything else is artificial. Why do people seem to think, CONTROL needs to be done to improve ones life. We think the poor only needs money and that will lift them up and solve the poverty problem. Nothing is solved until they solve it for themselves. The Government who wants to control, has spent trillions of dollars over the past 50 years to "save the poor". After all that money, after all of that control, our poverty level has gone up. Not down. Same thing in Europe, Same thing in Asia. If you want to start a new and exciting society, change yourself first. Become a person of virtues, character and truth. It begins with you. If you can't be that person, then how do you believe someone else will follow your lead?

Guess what we don't have to reinvent the wheel. Yes being brand new has it's charm. But if I were to start a new society, I would go back to the Federalist Papers and read them. Then I would adapt the constitution. Most people haven't even ventured with one of the Federalist Papers, let alone over 80 of them. Liberty and Freedom are the two basics to start any society. It's the foundation on which everything else can be built on. Now to address the authors questions. Who are the thinkers and doers with brilliant ideas? Everyone has the potential to be brilliant. To start to sort people out is not the best way to accomplish getting the best ideas. When one wants to separate or clarify the "Who's", it will be that person who selects these people. Let the people rise to the top on their own. How do we collectively extract their most important lessons, and how do we collectively puzzle them together to create the blueprint for a new society? We don't. Who is we. The socialist? The TEA Party? The politicians? The bureaucracy? Once again, let the cream rise to the top, naturally. When you put someone in charge of choosing, you'll just get a liked mined person. How do we put the blueprint into practise without being regulated, taxed or sabotaged by preexisting governments? This is a great question. The only way is to make sure the Government is them self restricted. Read the Federalist papers. The Constitution was designed to RESTRICT Government and not the people. Without this foundation, none of these ideas will ever work. Remember to build anything, one needs a good foundation. A good foundation promotes people and not the government. Government only gets into the way, reduces your freedom and restricts your life. Why would anyone want that?
