One Response to “Welcoming the richness available”

    Related to this is what I wrote yesterday but did not publish yet:

    Partnership or dependency

    Some people may cultivate leadership, partnership, and prosperity. Others may, without first consulting a competent analyst with appropriate mutual interests in the outcomes produced, invest aggressively in familiar patterns of speculative debt. Instead of investing in safe, reliable strategies, many demonstrate their preference for gambling on unreliable investment strategies (such as endless flipping of debt-financed real estate, or eternal opimism for certain commodities or certain sectors of certain national stock markets worldwide). Such gambling inherently presents risks of poverty and dependency, such as depending on government porgrams that may be unsustainable or even already destabilizing.

    It has been my privilege to notice certain emerging developments in global economic trends. I have noticed these trends far in advance of most people.

    I have also noticed that some people have argued against my analysis, while others have merely ignored or dismissed it. I notice how I have been interacting with people, including those who do not seem to notice what I notice or may not even be interested, even as they continue investing in related markets, discussing those markets, and campaigning for various political interventions to favor or at least temporarily “prop up” those particular investments in which they happen to have already been invested.

    I have been presuming that people value prosperity as a priority, and further, that whether or not they do, they should. So, on occasion, I have also criticized people (however indirectly or implicitly) for investing in things like speculative real estate which may have since led to their bankruptcy (or may be about to). While that criticism might seem rather distinct from criticizing someone after they are already bankrupt from gambling on speculative investments such as financed real estate, perhaps the difference is quite minor. For me, it has been an investment of energy and attention on the exhausting prospect of “fixing people from how they should not be- allegedly- to how they should be.” Criticizing people for depending on particular politicians and advisors may be about as useful (or useless) as criticizing the particular politicians and advisors on whom so many people have been depending.

    Now, I assert that there are people who demonstrate their commitment to experiencing poverty and dependency as well as those who demonstrate their commitment to experiencing prosperity and partnership or even leadership. Blame and criticism are, at best, not essential for prosperity.

    So, I turn my attention from the risks of strategies like debt-financed real estate speculation (and so on) to the cultivating of partnership and prosperity. To those who may remain committed to experiencing something else, such as dependency, I may have the privilege of offering my leadership, should they be receptive.

    It is of course the “herd mentality” investing of so many that makes possible the unprecedented opportunities now present. As multitudes demonstrate their commitment to maintaining familiar investments- perhaps no matter how personally costly those strategies may be- they provide for the swift transfer of financial resources to those who are committed to partnership, innovation, and prosperity.

    So, the immense transfer of affluence underway is not developing in spite of the actions of the masses, but through their demonstrated commitments. To criticize the popular commitment to dependency is to neglect the opportunity and even responsibility to lead them. The masses are demonstrating their demand and insistence for someone to lead them. If they refuse to partner, prosper, and lead, then let them instead be led. So be it.

    If they keep depending on the leadership of the same quality of so-called leadership on whom they have been depending, that is also temporary. Is there anything wrong with my implicit criticisms and condemnations? Insofar as they have not worked very well for me, it might be more relevant to say that there was nothing especially practical or rewarding about that manner of interacting. “I’m depending on you, but you’re being an idiot, so I’m nervous” is quite distinct from “I love you and so I invite you to reconsider, with or without me, what would work best for you.”
