Is justification the root of all evil?

Justification according the Oxford Dictionary means: “The action of showing something to be right or reasonable.” Obama Law GIF from Obama GIFs I’ll start from a position where people know what is ‘right’ from ‘wrong’ – on any particular thing, not necessarily legally wrong. Let me take ‘interpersonal violence’ asRead More

Knock on the door

Well, I’m making breakfast this morning – around 10:00 AM – and I hear the doorbell ring. No – I didn’t think that the ‘authorities’ had come for me, finally. So I step into my storm porch and see a man and a child. He’s smartly dressed in suit andRead More

Now I get it.

For quite some time I’ve been looking at the rules of logic in relation to how people reason on various things. Repeatedly I came up with a gap between the rules of logic and the application of reasoning. In retrospect I discover that I unknowingly made an assumption, that ifRead More

Talking about time

I realised before that ‘time’ is perhaps the most important thing in life. It’s this simple: there is a time between birth and death. I declare that anybody who argues otherwise makes themselves out to be a fool. I’m not interested in how one (or ‘you’) measures time or aboutRead More

The problem of knowledge

As this is in the domain of social media, I shall be overly cautious and convoluted at times, so as to head off my words being twisted out of shape by ‘bent minds’. First off, I am not saying that journals  are causing a problem! Next if I make what appearsRead More

It has been a terribly busy time. ‘Some’ immediately know, “..making money hand over fist” etc. It’s so amusing how people get ideas in their heads and before long that turns into reality. But strange is it not – that when it comes to really big ideas about making moneyRead More

A new year brings new hope – for some

I realise that I haven’t said anything on this blog for quite some time.  I’ve been busy elsewhere of course. I need more hours in the day! Each year grows more and more interesting and challenging. The years seem to pass by even more quickly than before.  2016 was aRead More

What people say and what they do

Today I’m motivated by an online conversation with a colleague to write this. In essence, he’s a successful financial trader by his own one method. Over the last few months,  I’ve been sharing different methods, with a well declared intention not to change his. Over several months I basically getRead More

Can’t do won’t do

As on a lot of occasions I come to blog something, it’s been at the back of my mind for some time and then it certainly hits me. Yuh know, like it’s some kind of build up inside. Calm down – does it have to be anger? Does ‘build up’Read More
