Being on the Wrong Side of History
Through out human history, the masses have been deceived about some important things. The people in control has an agenda and they are not shy about using deception to influence public opinion to get their way.

During the Second World War, there were rumors of mass execution of Jewish civilians by the Nazis but most people were skeptical. The Nazi propaganda were very effective in keeping this a secret. It was not until the end of the war and the liberation of Poland and other western European nations that the extent of this holocaust was revealed.
Why are the masses so eager to buy the propaganda? What is it about the human psyche that allow them to be so easily fooled? We see this repeated throughout our history.
In the early 20th century, many countries debated the capitalism vs Communism view of government. The philosophy of Karl Marx were adopted by Lenin and Stalin to rule over Russian after the revolution. It took a long cold war after the end of WWIl until 1990 when the Soviet Union failed and the Berlin Wall finally came down that the people realized they were on the wrong side of history. Communism failed miserably.
The 70 years of experiment ended in a decisive defeat. All you have to do is look at East and West Germany. I saw it first hand in the 1990s. I had an occasion to visit both West Germany and the recently merged East Germany. It was like day and night. How did two very similar country in demographics ended so different in economic well being?
AC vs. DC Electricity
In the start of the industrial revolution, when electricity was first invented, there was two competing form electricity. The DC or direct current was proposed by Thomas Edison, the inventor of the electric light bulb. On the other hand, Nicolai Tesla developed a more efficient form of electricity called AC or Alternating Current. It was more efficient since it does not need as many repeating transformers in order to distribute or transmit this energy source.
After many years of debate and testing...AC won out as the better choice and today, we are all using 110 V AC in our houses and our businesses.
Interesting side note, Edison was a much better businessman than Tesla. He ended up wealthy and head of the research lab in Princeton and has a lucrative deal with Westinghouse. While, Tesla died a poor broken man having suffered some disappointments in his quest for wireless power transmission.
Climate Change Debate...
Today, we are dealing with a major problem called climate change or global warming. There are two schools of thought on this. One which is headed by the IPCC and the UN, the other by NIPCC which question the validity of current climate change theory of man caused global warming or else known as the theory of AGW.
The debate is about what is the best way to deal with long term climate change.
Trump was elected president of the US in 2016 against all odds and beat Hillary Clinton. He promised to make America Great again after 8 years of the Obama Administration. He has many detractors including the main stream media. They threw everything in their playbook at him but it didn’t work. At last, they called him the “R” word. TDS has afflicted many. Brian Ross of ABC was a prime example. He put his career on the line in going after Trump with fake news. He lost his job...
Donald Trump is the 45th President of the US. He coined the words Make America Great Again. Some people think it is racist... How can making America Great be racist? Don’t you believe America was great? If not, what is it about America do you find troubling? Can you find a better country among the over 100 countries around the world? Please name them here so we can all learn something new...The comment section below is open to the public. I welcome any input.
