We’ve lost our way in favor of a payday.

It’s a shame to say,

but we don’t value what we used to.

A pretty face, a stuffed wallet, a degree, all seem to mean so much more than WE.

How do we move forward,

If it’s all about me, me…

Or pay the consequences

The man who acquires the ability to take full possession of his own mind may take possession of everything else to which he is justly entitled. -Andrew Carnegie

Humans are unique for many reasons, but one of the most noticeable differences between us and other species is that we have the brains that we do. Out of our minds, we create systems, technologies, careers, companies, etc. …

Why decentralization matters

Many of the products we know and use today, will not be around 5 years from now. Just like Myspace is a relic of the past, so too will the Facebooks and Twitters of the world.

According to the law of accelerating returns, as written by Ray Kurzweil:

The culture has failed all of us

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.” — Proverbs 23:7

Far too many people get caught up in what other people may think about them, that they forget the opinion that matters most: what God — or their inner being — thinks about them. With social media being the way that it is, we’re all constantly inundated by criticisms that…

Why “seeing color” is not the answer

We live in CRAZY times.

It seems like every day there is a new case of “racism”, and a new person, cartoon, figure, etc. that’s being called to get “canceled” so that everyone knows exactly who they are. At this point, I’m over it. If everyone is a racist, is everyone really a racist? …

David beats Goliath, so the SEC should WATCH out

Hopefully, you know that this is a rhetorical question. The recent events with $GME, $AMC, $NOK, and others have made it crystal clear that the system is rigged-for the elites. As soon as the subreddit r/wallstreetbets picked up on the fact that Melvin Capital had taken out a large short…

Else someone else will

Now more than ever it is important for people to take control of their own mind, and to direct it towards whatever purpose best fits their unique personality and past experiences. It’s so easy to get caught up in what sides are battling it out on the public stage when…

Open your eyes

Do you believe all that you see, or do you dare to question the things in your reality that don’t seem to make sense? Do you believe that God rules the world, or that evil always prevails and that the ‘bad guys’ always seem to win? …
