After some 77 years on this planet I find that human nature is an interesting issue.  I have discovered that most people will generally not pursue hard realities but acquiesce to the easy path (mostly). What do I mean? If you read my prior missive on the six criminal banks, you can discern that these banks have been allowed to survive even though their executives have failed to clean-up their operations. Criminality continues because few desire to focus on the problems (the negatives)! Does this mindset lead to progress for our world? I don’t think so!


Furthermore, none of our main media outlets gave the originators of this document any credence or exposure. The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, the Financial Times, the Washington Post, etc. did not publish any article about this financial corruption within America’s banking system. I found none in the publications which I read. This issue should be paramount in the thinking of every global citizen. Human nature does not like to publicize realities which might expose these criminal banks and their operations to the light of day (so it seems)!


I find this mindset everywhere as I watch the behavior of people within our power structure. The Catholic priests who have continually molested children to exploit their sexual desires has not been seriously dealt with IMO. The religious hierarchy does not want to deal with issues which might bring the entire house of cards down. I have witnessed this mindset (in spades) within our financial system.


Nearly everyone with some common sense knows that prices of select commodities are manipulated, rigged, and controlled. Silver, for example, has been rigged for some seven to eight years and yet few (nearly none) of our silver miners who depend upon a fair market price seem to complain about all the rigging and manipulation of the silver price. Why this mindset? Also, our official media refuse to touch the issue of government and bank rigging. Why?


Our central banks have created counterfeit money (called QE) for years and yet no-one publishes this counterfeiting and where it all leads. One banker, operating behind closed doors, can counterfeit money units (in the trillions) with his official computer. Think of this banker from Japan as an obvious example. Mr. Kuroda of Japan has single-handedly manipulated, rigged, and pumped up the official markets over in Japan for years. Who is complaining? Why?


Central bankers all around our planet are doing similar to what Mr. Kuroda does. They create counterfeit money and then buy assets so that the markets do not function freely via supply and demand. This corruption goes unreported and those behind closed doors never have to acknowledge their illegal/corrupt behavior. The official media favors these actions even though they are corrupt/illegal and criminal. Is this ‘human nature’?


Better Markets published details which exposed the criminality within six of our biggest banks on this planet. The data are available for everyone to review. Yet human nature will allow all this corruption to continue (for now) rather than expose the culprits behind all this criminality. See for the details. The criminality in religion, science, finance, banking, and government is everywhere to witness.


Human nature, so it seems, will focus on the positive and ignore the messy problems which underlie human decision-making. Families will ignore the negative (to protect someone’s ego), employees will ignore the negative (to avoid an argument), and almost all people in positions of power and authority will ignore the negative consequences to their decision-making. Our world continues to focus on the positive (acceptance) to the detriment of our survival. Survival depends on exposing the problems and then developing meaningful solutions that benefit all of society. This mindset is ignored by most.


Today, human nature does not desire to focus of our core problems. Corrupt and criminal behavior is ignored so as not to rock the boat. I see this in religion, politics, finance, and especially within banking. Ample money in the present seems to prevent any acknowledgment of the underlying problems which are at the core of one’s thinking. Human nature likes the positive and yet it is the negative (our problems) which get worse and worse with this thinking mindset. Our world situation can not improve with this mindset.


As a man thinketh so is he. This mindset of focusing on the positive (not rocking the boat) will eventually lead to a TITANIC end result. Life consists of problems first and then solutions. Ignoring the problems (the negatives) seems to be part of ‘human nature’. Accepting the ‘other’ is good and proper (up to a point) BUT I also must reject that which leads to criminality and detrimental results for society as a whole. We need a mindset which puts the negative (problems) within the forefront of our thinking!


That is my view of what is happening on this planet today. The mindset of today’s decision-makers are leading us all to a death knell CLIFF where everyone falls to his death as the cliff emerges into the present. Positive thinking and pure acceptance of the status quo is part of our problem. We need a NEW mindset where problems are viewed as ‘positive’. Problems lead us to solutions when we dig deeply into their nature. Give this concept of ‘human nature’ some reflection at your leisure. New thinking is at the core of change!


Read this report of Better Markets. It is one report which we all need more of (in finance, politics, religion, and science). I commend the writers and thinkers who developed this report. I reveals that ‘human nature’ can change.


Have a good day! I am:
