Three Great Forces Rule The World

Albert Einstein’s quote rings true, “Three great forces rule the world: stupidity, fear, and greed.” Those forces fester as we have not established a human theory, in Einstein’s words, that determines what can be discovered.

Using an evolutionary meritocracy deployed by stringent free marketplace principles as the foundation of the marketplaces we derive from such a theory, we can quickly root out and redirect the behavior that produces human excellence instead.

Stupidity comes from untrained thinkers and the denial of general relativity in assessing nature’s truth to which humanity is beholden. Not everyone needs to think about the bigger picture to make a living. Thus, awarding a non-thinker the same voting rights as a thinker reduces the value of democracy to the lowest common denominator of popular wants rather than needs.

Fear of a finite life has led to the creation of no less than four hundred and twenty theologies making extraordinary claims of an afterlife and money, lacking extraordinary evidence to substantiate those claims. Religions are the sleep of reason, regurgitating hindsight that does not extrapolate to foresight that breaks the norm. We must follow through on the separation of church and state in our Declaration of Independence to rid ourselves of make-believe that clouds the future of humanity.

Greed is good when the theory to which the participants of a marketplace must adhere drives the collective interests of humanity. We do not need to change human morality. We must change the compass and remuneration from personal to collective interests for greed to improve human adaptability to nature’s entropy.

Einstein voiced his pessimism about the future of America for a good reason. Whether we all should is determined by our faith in Winston Churchill’s assessment of America: “The United States will always do the right thing, but not until it has explored everything else not to.”

I came to this country because when we start telling ourselves the whole truth and nothing but the truth:

We have it in our power to begin the world over again.

The sign of a vibrant, innovative nation is its willingness to pursue the ever-unfolding discovery of nature's truth and reinvent itself continually against those proven new normalizations upstream. Let’s inspire the world with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
