If we earn our living in these fields, or are trapped in the downside of these services, then we become the fodder that support war, crime, and disease economies. We don’t know we are all threatened by these monolithic gods we have propped up in the honor of protection, security, and wellness. If we just pop outta here into some cool industries committed to cleaning up the dysfunctional elements that machiavellian lassaize faire groups have made... well... we can get on with an evolutionary state of being, instead of this stupidity that is nothing without our labor.

-G-

"Games People Play": NBP: this is a great book that was used by sociologists and psychologists to understand the sub-conscious games people play with and on each other when they are not really present to the problems they create for them-selves and others.

Realities are a function of agreements realized as fact. When we recognize that we live within a language construct, and our realities are defined by the agreements we make in that language construct, then it becomes more feasible to generate new realities as a function of new agreements based on language that rests on universally accepted principles of ethics, logic, and passion.

Linguistics: n. pl. 1) the science of language, including phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics: often general linguistics divided into descriptive, historical, comparative, and geographical linguistics. 2) the study of the structure , development, etc., of a particular language and of its relationship to other languages: as English linguistics.

Moral Conversation: NBP: there is a distinction we are making between moral conversations and ethical conversations so that we do not get caught up in the dilemma of believing moral conversations are "good" in every sense of the word. We regard "moral conversations" as conversations that are based in a dominant culture's religious point of view, whereas "ethical conversations" are universally based in the principles of ethics, logic, and passion. So if the conversation has the goodwill of others in mind, and addresses all possibilities in a debate, which evokes the excitement or calming down of those who are party to the conversation, then an ethical conversation has taken place. If judgments, evaluations, shame, blame, credit or praise for any one particular ideology over another is taking place, then a moral conversation ensues. We assert that moral conversations keep competitive war like challenges in place, and ethical conversations promote truth and peace.

-N-

-P-

Paradox: NBP: There is a saying in the mental health industry that the ability to deal with ambiguity (a production of paradox) is a sign of mental health. We say at NBP that when we include the concept of Paradox in our analysis of concepts and experiences, we have some breathing room to see how things can be true and false at the same time depending on whose point of view is considered. If one is capable of seeing paradox, then one can empathize with another who has a different point of view. We can learn to first tolerate, and then appreciate, those differences as valid. Once we can accept differing ways of enculturation, we can be less reactive and less threatened, and more curious. We have incredibly diverse sets of human beings and ways of producing culture on this planet. It is joyous to explore them when unthreatened. The only way to stop being threatened is to recognize that no one way is right or wrong, just different. To each his own.

Paradox n. 1) a statement contrary to common belief; 2) a statement that seems contradictory, unbelievable or absurd but that may actually be true in fact. 3) a statement that is self-contradictory in fact, and hence false (NBP: *by standards of logic, perhaps, but not by standards of paradox)

Paradigm Shift: NBP: a contextual shift, i.e. if the bowl of apples has a red glass container, a paradigm shift would be to shift or move the apples to a different container, say a blue metal one. A paradigm shift in economics would be to pick up the whole notion of economics and remove it from a Machiavellian set of practices and shift the content to a context of Enlightened Capitalism, where the items in the container are the same, but the practices for operation have shifted to a whole new paradigm.

Paradigm: n. (to show) 1:EXAMPLE, PATTERN esp : an outstandlingly clear or typical example or archetype 2: an example of a conjugation or declension showing a word in all its inflectional forms

Prison Labor Force: NBP: a serious conflict of interest with the market labor force, this labor force pays slave labor and has been incarcerating non violent offenders since the 1980’s to obtain manageable corralled labor without the usually human rights in place for citizens. IBM, Lenscrafters and a barrage of other industries have been laying off market labor and supporting the building of prisons across America to use our people as fodder for this market. This needs serious investigation and the players need to be punished for their crude and evil means to this slave labor end. But until the public realizes that they have been fed false media regarding the crime industry, we have no hope of breaking this context and ending the war against our poor played out in the crime industry.

-Q-

Revolutionary Change: NBP: revolutionary change is like recycled trash. Using the tools of war, crime, and disease to fight against those industries keep in place the underlying props that allow them to exist, so at most we have a regime change, not a real change at all. Evolutionary change pops out of the current context with a new set of tools.

-S-

Salad Bowl World: NBP: we assert that we do not live in a melting pot, but in a salad bowl world. The truth is, if you look at anthropological and sociological data, people do not give up their core cultural mores, but bring with them incredible differences that can be delightful and curious when we are not expecting them to be the same or to adapt to ways that are not core for them. The context of our differences shifts to something more curious when we get over the cultural shock that there are other ways of being a human being besides our own, and they have survived and will continue to survive, so why fight it! Why not enjoy our incredibly diverse brothers and sisters, so we can learn to share power and resources without our differences being an issue.

More on this to come…. Currently China is executing prisoners for fresh hearts, etc. Perhaps they are manufacturing people to provide these parts as well. It can be done, and it is the cheapest labor possibility, reducing our humanity to machinery. This needs watch dogs and ethical regulations if we wish to forward science and not machiavellian profit making scams out to hurt any of us.

Wackenhut Corporation: NBP: Wackenhut is a corporation in the business of providing security services to prisons, nuclear power plants and may act as a world police force for corporations and other countries. They created another company, Corrections Corporation of America, which is in the business of building prisons. It is not in the public interest to build prisons for profits, and then create a crime industry to fill the prisons so that other corporations like IBM, Lenscrafters, etc can have labor at reduced prices competitive with market labor. It is especially evil when they lay off market labor, to switch to prison labor to save a buck. And to target the black population's sink to poverty, or the youthful rebels processing their normal rights of passage, for fodder to fill these prisons across America is a crime in itself.

War: n. 1a. a state of usually open and declared armed hostile conflict between states or nations. 2a. a state of hostility, conflict, or antagonism. b: A struggle between opposing forces or for a particular end.

War, Crime, and Disease Industries: NBP: For several hundred years our economies have been built on these industries. The effects of generating wealth using human beings as fodder for profits in these industries kill us, incarcerate us, and sicken us intentionally and periodically... like clockwork.
