Dr. Tom’s Reality Therapy: Communism

April 27, 2018

 Dr. Tom’s Reality Therapy: Communism.

The simple fact is that many of our voting citizens do not know the difference between one of the world’s most totalitarian, murderous and inhumane forms of government ever and American democratic “progressivism” (i.e., radical liberalism).

Of course, this would not be a problem…If they were not inclined to vote for democratic.

See below for a snoot-full of reality.

Reality Therapy with Dr. Tom: University Sex Week!

April 14, 2018

Reality Therapy with Dr. Tom: University Sex Week!

America! It’s time for a little more of Dr. Tom’s reality therapy. 

These special blogs are designed for those who are still living in a fantasy world.

Look-out, you could be one of them and not even know it!

The mass of wonderful (but fantasy-world) citizens consists of a great many of those patriots who were raised in traditional, religious or semi-religious, conservative or moderately conservative families. In some cases it will even include patriotic citizens, from various backgrounds, who consider themselves to be “traditional” or “classical” liberals.

Here is your wake-up call! It is way past-time to perceive the cultural ravages of hyper-liberalism in America and elsewhere in the world. Therefore, it is now my sad duty to rub your noses in the delayed consequences of your slumber in fantasy land. 

I promise that I do this out of pure love and kind thoughts for you, your loved ones and the future of America.

You may, understandably, get upset with me for exposing you to the truth. If you do you will be illustrating some perfectly human fundamental psychological errors: They are the denial of a threatening reality and displaced aggression. These are common defenses against anxiety, worry, fear and anger that we all must learn to  manage effectively.

Wake-Up America! Be rational: Put your anxiety, worry, fear, and anger where it belongs.

Focus these defensive emotions upon the hyper-liberal, anti-American political philosophy (progressivism/socialism) and its political practitioners: Vote the purveyors of America’s demise out of office and do not let them back in.

Here is a small sample of a much greater reality, soon to become your personal nightmare.

A Convention of States!

February 27, 2018

A Convention of States!

America has been in a Post-Constitutional period for a long time.

Increasingly, leftist/socialists/”progressives” have gained control of the federal government, the Supreme and lower courts, education,  and many more components of American society and culture.

These crooks and traitors have done this by confiscating the wealth of hard-working citizens and redistributing it to a rapidly increasing segment of America’s population who have become slaves to governmental largess. These are now “shackled voters”, who according to the Marxist plan, are increasingly helplessly dependent upon the housing, other material gifts and cold cash that their socialist masters dispence to them. America’s open borders, as well as open borders in Europe, are the leftist well-spring’s of new dedicated voters fueling numerous cultural dominoes falling for the well known pathologies of  socialism and Islamic Radicalism.

All of this is augmented by the many strident leftist initiatives and anti-American political action groups. These and other progressive lobbyists joined with traitorous near-life-time politicians to destroy America’s Constitutional government and confiscate freedoms from our citizens.

Together, they and the radical leftist/socialist democratic party (aided by a minority of liberal republicans)  have increasingly educated and propagandized our youth against America’s Constitutional laws, its Free Market economy, and Judeo/Christian Faiths and moral values.

The obscene, illegal and murderous social and political chaos now pandemic in America is the perfectly predictable outcome of all of this.

Modern America would be an unrecognizable horror to our Founding Fathers.

America’s Founding Fathers feared this would happen and, amazingly, they provided a Constitutional remedy to protect against just such a cultural death spiral.

It brings great sadness to think of all who have fought to preserve our freedoms; especially those who were maimed or killed in all of America’s wars starting with the Revolutionary War and to this very day.

We should also remember the wives, children and families who suffered the sickening loss their loved ones who fought to protect our way of life…now threatened as never before.

War Time U.S. Military Deaths

In his Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln most succinctly stated America’s hopes and dreams  for: A “government of the people, by the people, for the people” [that] “shall not perish from the earth.”

Tragically, thisgovernment of the people, by the people, for the people” IS now in the process of perishing from the earth!

We must now save America’s precious Representative Republic by using the gift of our little known 5th Constitutional Amendment; bequeathed to us by our amazingly prescient Founding Fathers. This must be done to preserve our remaining precious freedoms and to reverse increasing Federal governmental growth and dictatorial confiscations of state and citizens rights.

Please view the following and support its future initiatives.

Why Americans Should Hate Liberalism #3

Why Americans Should Hate Liberalism #3

The following is a direct quote from Dr. Michael G. Martin’s book: Liberalism: The Demise of America .

Not only will it be well worth your time to read and think about these two paragraphs: It is your patriotic duty to do so.

America’s future hangs in the balance of a general understanding of the following  perceptions of reality.

Quote:

Liberals want to change society so that there are no longer losers, malcontents, or the irresponsible. It is strange that the policies they tout involve perverse incentives, so these bad behaviors are actually promoted and incentivized. This applies to drug addiction, hard work, sexual responsibility, and the like. Liberals think compassion will change everything. They believe people are malleable and plastic, susceptible to change—but even if this were true, it must be accomplished though the proper incentives and social and economic context. They appear to be behaviorists, but yet they are employing perverse incentives to get change. This is a puzzle that defies comprehension.

It’s interesting that liberals believe they can change society and the nature of individuals when they don’t believe in individual responsibility or accountability for individuals. They see the life of the individual as being largely deterministic. That is to say, their behavior is shaped by social and environmental forces beyond their control. If an individual can’t affect his own life, how can liberals argue that they can change the nature of society and individuals? On the scale of the collective, then, they are basically acknowledging that they escape the thrall of determinism.

Perhaps the explanation is that they believe the common man is too stupid to affect his life, but that the elite—the smart people—can basically re-engineer not only themselves, the society, and the very nature of human beings themselves. Liberals are saying in effect, then, that the common man—really the stupid people—is totally malleable. He can be made into anything the liberal elite want, good or bad. There are strong assumptions here about not only human nature, but the influence of other unseen and not-understood forces that shape human behavior, as well as the ability of the liberal elite to engineer the wrenching change that they desire.

Kindle pages 261 and 262.

End Quote:

I am a behavioral psychologist and a great admirer of B. F. Skinner, perhaps the greatest psychologist of the 20th century.

Skinner and other behaviorists rightfully ascribe great power to the environment to shape the behavior patterns of humans and other animals. Furthermore, Skinner, as well as many behaviorists acknowledge the strength of genetic determinants upon human psychological adaptations as they interact and are influenced, in very complex ways, by a plethora of environmental influences.

It is important for Americans to understand that is no “free will”, in the sense that humans are totally free from genetic and environmental influences.

No population can escape the influences of their genetics, social and physical environments. The best that can be done, in my judgment, is to educate citizens about the scientific principles of these influences and also teach them to come under the control of the imperatives of survival for their own society, their own loved ones who will outlive them and their loved-ones who are yet to be born.

This bright future will require that Americans relearn the advantages of forsaking immediate gratifications in favor of highly beneficial long-term outcomes. It will also require that we again venerate and teach the compliance with rules of living and conduct that insure such future benefits.

My reading of American and World History has led me to conclude that the “Wisdom of the Ages” resides in the Judeo/Christian precepts and values for personal conduct that once helped make America great. The same can be said of other compatible religions of the world.

The teaching of, and compliance to, these precious guides for life are powerfully augmented when a society encourages the belief in a Higher Power than that of the self-destructive philosophy of secular humanism which forms the basis of liberalism,  progressivism, socialism and communism.

Only then we can we hope that our Constitutional Republic might endure thorough our representative democratic political process and citizen voter counter-controls on governmental actions.

Operant Behavior and Cultural Evolution

April 8, 2016

Operant Behavior and Cultural Evolution

B. F. Skinner is often credited with being the greatest psychologist of the 20th Century.

In my judgment, and that of countless others, Skinner deserves this special honor  because his prodigious research and writings gave birth to the psychological science of Behavior Analysis. Furthermore, his work also led to the development of the science and technology of Applied Behavior Analysis. Skinner’s efforts and that of his legions of followers has culminated in, and continues to yield, the world’s most powerful and practical applications of psychology to ameliorate human behavior problems. But, even better, the wise use of this behavior technology could lead to the prevention of human behavior problems!

One old saying is: “An Ounce Of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure”. This rule  could be one important the key to sociocultural longevity, if humans can be helped to care for such future outcomes.

Societies that do not teach their children and young adults about science-based findings about the environmental forces that shape human behavior patterns, as well as an effective moral code to their populations, fail to do so at their own great peril. The dramatically increasing behavior problems in America’s society, and others, provide stark support for this conclusion.

Some of B. F. Skinner’s prophetic words were published in 1971 in his powerful little book,  Beyond Freedom and Dignity. Please read the following samples of his writing with care and you may begin to understand one great source of America’s citizen’s behavior problems.

Then get the entire book and learn some essential information that relatively few citizens know.

Sample 1.

Twenty-five hundred years ago it might have been said that man understood himself as well as any other part of his world. Today he is the thing he understands least (Kindle Loc. 64).

In other words, as we have advanced our understanding in all other areas of science and technology, we have remained woefully ignorant of the psychological science and technology that shapes our own behavior patterns. Skinner also wrote about the fact that the health and longevity of all cultures rest upon the understanding and benevolent use of this science and technology of human behavior.

Sample 2.

In trying to solve the terrifying problems that face us in the world today, we naturally turn to the things we do best. We play from strength, and our strength is science and technology. To contain a population explosion we look for better methods of birth control. Threatened by a nuclear holocaust, we build bigger deterrent forces and anti-ballistic-missile systems. We try to stave off world famine with new foods and better ways of growing them. Improved sanitation and medicine will, we hope, control disease, better housing and transportation will solve the problems of the ghettos, and new ways of reducing or disposing of waste will stop the pollution of the environment. We can point to remarkable achievements in all these fields, and it is not surprising that we should try to extend them. But things grow steadily worse, and it is disheartening to find that technology itself is increasingly at fault. Sanitation and medicine have made the problems of population more acute, war has acquired a new horror with the invention of nuclear weapons, and the affluent pursuit of happiness is largely responsible for pollution. As Darlington has said, ‘Every new source from which man has increased his power on the earth has been used to diminish the prospects of his successors. All his progress has been made at the expense of damage to his environment which he cannot repair and could not foresee’.

Whether or not he could have foreseen the damage, man must repair it or all is lost. And he can do so if he will recognize the nature of the difficulty. The application of the physical and biological sciences alone will not solve our problems because the solutions lie in another field. Better contraceptives will control population only if people use them. New weapons may offset new defenses and vice versa, but a nuclear holocaust can be prevented only if the conditions under which nations make war can be changed. New methods of agriculture and medicine will not help if they are not practiced, and housing is a matter not only of buildings and cities but of how people live. Overcrowding can be corrected only by inducing people not to crowd, and the environment will continue to deteriorate until polluting practices are abandoned.

In short, we need to make vast changes in human behavior, and we cannot make them with the help of nothing more than physics or biology, no matter how hard we try (Kindle Loc. 31-50).

The powerful truth that B. F. Skinner has tried to explain to us is that our most enduring and damaging problems are a result of the ignorant management of our own individual and collective behavior. Furthermore, our ignorance can be remediated only if we will study the right available information and convert this knowledge into practice.

I have taught my psychological subject matter as a professor for 36 years and also taught and applied it within my a private practice for a similar duration. Over this time I have watched as America has all but destroyed itself, largely through the gross misapplication of these very elemental psychological principles.

I believe that certain sociopolitical and economic philosophies are compatible with, and naturally catalytic to, the societal integration of these elementary principles of psychology…and that is why they have consistently succeed.

It is clear to me that other sociopolitical and economic philosophies are naturally antithetical to these elementary principles of psychology and this is why they have consistently failed.

In my judgement, many important elementary principles of psychology are inherent in  conservative political and economic philosophies and practices. Although the resulting behavioral and cultural outcomes are never perfect, history demonstrates conservative principles are superior to those of other sociocultural designs. I judge that B. F. Skinner would not have agreed with many of my political/economic conclusions on this last matter and I am certain many of his followers do not.

On the other hand, the natural elemental principles of psychology, as implemented by progressive/socialist political and economic philosophies consistently damage motivation and most often lead to increased rates of maladaptive and self-destructive behavior among its citizens and leaders. These tragedies are are illustrated by the fact that socialist leaders normally gather the lions-share of power and material gains, at the great expense of their citizens….including the imprisonment and even death of over one hundred of million of them by starvation and execution. The arrested development, if not the horrific decline, of entire socialist/communist societies is clearly documented by history.

“Do The Right Thing”!…But, What Is “The Right Thing”!?

January 3, 2016

“Do The Right Thing”!

But, What Is “The Right Thing”!?

Well, it is often not so easy to know, exactly.

Of course for an increasing percent of Americans it is very hard to know what the right thing is; and the reasons should be obvious.

America’s increasingly progressive/socialist government has done everything it can to inculcate a unique religion, and its attendant beliefs and values, into its citizens. This, alone, makes it very difficult for more and more of our population to do “The Right Things”.

The word inculcate is a powerful word.

Common definitions of the word, inculcate, imply a great force in teaching; almost a “pounding” or a “grinding” of ideas and habits into an individual or a population, i.e., :

“To implant by repeated statement or admonition, to teach persistently and earnestly.”

“To cause or influence someone to accept an idea or feeling.”

Successful cultures powerfully teach, good ideas and feelings to their citizens. The word “good”, as I use it here, refers to beliefs and values that lead to healthy pro-social behaviors within a population and greater success for the evolving and teaching socioculture. 

Successful cultures do not leave this important influence to chance. or the mere whim of individuals. By consistently teaching good ideas and values to citizens, they acquire a better understanding of “the right things” to do when they confronted with life’s constant barrage moral/ethical dilemmas. Moral and ethical dilemmas, which if handled effectively by individual members of a society increase the odds that their socioculture will prosper and survive.

Of course, there are no guarantees about such happy outcomes.

Societies can, and often do inculcate bad ideas and values into their citizens.

For example, the North Korean government uses constant propaganda in every avenue of its media, in public displays, and in the education of its children and youth to love, adore, venerate and obey its supreme leader. The Nazi’s inculcated the same ideology (and more) into its population, using similar methods. There are innumerable other examples throughout history.

Tragically, since the late 1950’s or early 1960’s, America began to incorporate some of the tyrannical practices of these dictatorial governments.

America’s increasingly progressive/socialistic government has worked feverishly to inculcate the religion of secular humanism into its citizens, and into all aspects of society. Even doing so to the point of weakening America’s Churches at every opportunity.

Secular humanism is simply incompatible with the belief in a Supreme Being, God’s Revealed Truths, and the eternal wisdom of its moral/ethical belief systems.

It is rank tyranny that all of America’s religious symbols, words, phrases, sentences, and art-forms, as well as the traditions of America’s founding Judaeo/Christian religions, are being driven from our public places, our classrooms, and our common language.

Where individuals hang-on to the remnants of America’s religious traditions, they are frequently marginalized and even punished with disrespect and social censure.

Those religion-based traditions that are allowed remain are sanitized of religious content or innuendo and secularized into simple economic advantages to commerce and governmental taxation.

These ruthless attacks upon Americas religion’s, morals and ethics continue via legal prosecution as well as the media’s persecution and ridicule of religion. The ongoing brutalization and pornification of the American families’ airwaves and cyberspace whets the all-too-human appetites of the masses in ways that are incompatible with with good beliefs, good values and good behaviors.

These attacks also continue through wide-spread State sponsored social-censure tactics euphemistically referred to as “political correctness”. A common tool used by totalitarian societies.

The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable!

The only way individuals can learn to do The Right Things is for America to recover its religiosity and to relearn its traditional conservative faith-based rules of moral and ethical conduct that were more prominent during America’s best years: The Golden Rule and the Ten Commandments.

A religion and its culture based upon frailties of  human intelligence, judgment with its passion for easy and fast rewards; along with its habitual pursuit of power, excitement and sensuous pleasures will always be a disaster in comparison.

“The Conservative Mind” by Russell Kirk

December 20, 2015

“The Conservative Mind” by Russell Kirk

The actual title of this book is The Conservative mind: From Burke to Eliot.

This is no easy book to read, as it spans 501 pages and covers the concepts and precepts of Conservatism through history, through Russell Kirk’s own vast vocabulary and highly refined style of written expression.

Even well-educated readers will need to use a good dictionary should they wish to grasp much of his own writings and those of the great personages of history upon whom he elucidates and very frequently quotes. These quotations  are frequently written in a formal style and in the prose of centuries past.

Never the less, diligence will be rewarded with important insights into the origins of both conservative and liberal/progressive ideals. More importantly, the reader will see why conservative societies generally succeed (at least for a time) and why liberal/progressive societies (into which conservative societies tend to decline) generally fail.

America is now at enormous risk because it has abandoned is social and political conservatism and is rapidly evolving in the direction of the well-known socialistic/progressive ideals that generally spell disaster.

I have provided a significant number of short articles examining and critiquing the social/political philosophies of Conservatism, Libertarianism, Socialism and Progressivism.

At this time of steep American cultural decline, it is imperative that the voting public understand the main features of these engines of social change, as well as their typical evolutionary trajectories.

The fact that a great percentage of America’s (let alone the world’s) population will be unable to grasp the complexities of these philosophies and their deferred consequences to societies embodies a fearful revelation:

Relatively “free societies”, democracies and unbalanced representative republics (such as our own) normally devolve into rank socialism, and worse, when an increasingly indolent and dependent electorate learns to vote itself into the shackles of governmental largess.

I hope you will spend some time reviewing my articles that bear directly upon these concerns and the looming fate of your own society.

Please separately enter the words conservatism, libertarianism, socialism and progressivism in my search box on the upper right side of my main blog page. Think about these matters and then vote accordingly in all upcoming elections.

I will soon provide you with a series of commentary and important quotes from Russel Kirk’s, The Conservative Mind.

What Conservatism Is Not: Radical Liberalism

November 13, 2015

What Conservatism Is Not: Radical Liberalism

The following quotes are taken from Russell Kirk’s book, The Conservative Mind: From Burke to Eliot (1953)

Near the beginning, Kirk attempts to distill the elements of Radicalism. In today’s, lexicon he was attempting to define what is fittingly called Radical Liberalism, or Progressivism.

At any rate, the main elements of the radical social and political philosophy that Kirk is describing is certain death to the powerful American conservatism from which this great and incomparable nation was born.

The following is written by Russel Kirk about the nature of Radicalism. It is written in “high English” and it is not easy reading. However, diligent readers will certainly understand the main thrust of the elements of radicalism that Kirk presents because they have been witnessing the destructive force of its growth in America and Europe for over one-half of a century.

This main elements are as follows, and I quote:

  1. The perfectibility of man and the illimitable progress of society: meliorism. Radicals believe that education, positive legislation, and alteration of environment can produce men like gods; they deny that humanity has a natural proclivity toward violence and sin.
  2. Contempt for tradition. Reason, impulse, and materialistic determinism are severally preferred as guides to social welfare, trustier than the wisdom of our ancestors. Formal religion is rejected and various ideologies are presented as substitutes.
  3. Political leveling. Order an privilege are condemned; total democracy, as direct as practicable, is the professed radical ideal. Allied with this spirit, generally, is a dislike of old parliamentary arrangements and an eagerness for centralization and consolidation.
  4. Economic leveling. The ancient rights of property, especially property in land, are suspect to almost all radicals; and collectivistic reformers hack at the institution of private property root and branch.
  5. As a fifth point, one might try to define a common radical view of the state’s function; but here the chasm of opinion between the chief schools of innovation is to deep for any satisfactory generalization. One can only remark that radicals unite in detesting Burke’s description of the state as ordained of God, and his concept of society as joined in perpetuity by a moral bond among the dead, the living, and those yet to be born—the community of souls.

End of quote, page 10.

_________________________________________________________

Our Founding Father’s Constituted this great nation under the moral and ethical precepts of God. Whether one is a believer or not, they cannot argue with the existence of this legacy and the ascendancy of this great nation among the world of nations.

In spite of America’s periods of darker doings, well-noted by its detractors (the American Indian, Slavery, and examples of ruthless capitalism), America has done more than any other nation in the world to correct these natural human tendencies. It has done more than any other nation in the world to protect millions of people from death and subjugation by tyrants and totalitarians. America has done more that any other nation in the world to spread knowledge and technology; and freedom from tyranny, disease and poverty than any nation in the world.

Of course no society or citizenry in the history of the world is perfect. But, America did these things by strongly supporting the many religions among its population and freeing people to work, create, educate and raise their children as they desired. America did these things by allowing families to instill the values in their children that they had faith would lead to law-abiding and moral behavior toward others.

America leveled the “playing field by providing equality for all under the law and within its justice system. It did not do it by attempting to guarantee equality in all outcomes for its citizens. This is something that can never be done while preserving liberty for all. Better than any other nation in the history of  earth, America strives to provide equal opportunity for all its citizens to pursue their personal goals and achievements.

Sadly, during the past 55 years, increasing radical liberalism in America, as defined above by Russell Kirk, has predictably brought rank-corruption into our political system as well as (predictably) dramatically increasing rates of social psychopathology within our population.

History  now confronts us with the fact that America’s declining conditions will not improve until we return to the traditional precepts and moral values that once made us great.

It may already be too late.

Now may be the last great chance for Americans to channel all the optimism that we can muster into our coming elections.

We can do this by voting for a return to America’s Founding conservative principles.

Obama: I Told You So #2

Obama: I told You So # 2
 
I posted the following on Oct. 28, 2010.  If you are tuned into the current scandals surrounding the Obama Administration, you need no further introduction to the following blog.

Quantcast

Obama: A Student, Teacher, Practitioner of the Alinsky School of Revolution

In his pamphlet on this topic, “Rules for Revolution”, David Horiwitz documents the strong connection between President Obama and Saul Alinsky, the radical revolutionary Saul Alinsky.

On page 13:

“Three of Obama’s mentors in Chicago were trained at the Alinsky Industrial Areas Foundation, and for several years Obama himself taught workshops on the Alinsky method”.

Page 14:

“‘On Barack Obama’s presidential campaign website, one could see a photo of Obama in a classroom “teaching students Alinskyan methods. He stood in front of a blackboard on which he has written, “Power Analysis’ and ‘ Relationships Built on Self Interest…”‘

On pages 14 and 15:

A summary of Obama’s Acorn involvement was described by the Wall Street Journal.

In 1991, he took time off from his law firm to run a voter-registration drive for Project Vote, an Acorn partner that was soon fully absorbed under the Acorn umbrella. The drive registered 135,00 voters and was considered a major factor in the upset victory of Democrat Carol Moseley Braun over incumbent Democratic Senator Alan Dixon in the 1992 Democratic Senate primary. Mr. Obama’s success made him a hot commodity on the community organizing circuit. He became a top trainer at Acorn’s Chicago conferences. In 1995, he became Acorn’s attorney, participating in a landmark case to force the state of Illinois to implement the federal Motor Voter Law. The law’s loose voter registration requirements would later be exploited by Acorn employees in an effort to flood voter rolls with fake names. In (1996), Mr. Obama filled out a questionnaire listing key supporters for his campaign for the Illinois Senate. He put Acorn first (it was not an alphabetical list).

End of all Quotes.

In the final analysis, though Alinsky was dead by the time Obama came on the scene, Obama was trained by Alinsky’s students and became a teacher of his socialist revolutionary strategies which were based upon deception, deceit and opportunism.

With Alinsky, “The issue is never the issue. The Issue is the revolution” (p. 10). The ends always justified the means.

With President Obama the issue is not health care, global warming, cap and trade, or stimulating the economy, etc., it is a revolutionary progressive transformation of a capitalistic society to a socialistic one.
