Politics And The Welfare Or Abusive State

Politics And The Welfare Or Abusive State; Fiction, My Original

Briefly

By Edward Fagan

Politics and public assistance

Politics, according to some politicians, should not participate in any kind of welfare activity. It should, instead, stop the very rich from paying any portion of the tax burden they are carrying.

These politicians therefore aim to gradually have the lower classes pay all of the taxes collected. All this time they are trying to win the votes of the lower classes. The lower classes we all know, cast the majority of election votes.

These politicians do all of this while they try to close down such services as Medicare,  Medicaid and Planned Parenthood. These are the very social services on which their grassroots supporters happen to depend.

Politics and the other state

Many politicians who long to free society of all aspects of the welfare state, want to create the other state. This other state, the abusive state, is the utopian dream of these politicians.

In this abusive state, these politicians, their relatives, their very wealthy tax-exempted friends and business associates exist above the law. This group is free of all moral and financial accountability. Their businesses, likewise, are free of all moral, financial and environmental regulation.

Moral, social and economic justice do not exist for this type of politician. Here too, everyone else is on their own or at the mercy of the all powerful political and corporate masters. Many will need these masters’ personal patronage, from cradle to grave.

History speaks and beckons against the abusive state, but will these political and corporate masters respond as they should?

Regional Integration And Its Possibilities

Regional Integration And Its Possibilities

By Edward Fagan

Regional integration, the good side

Regional integration can succeed among countries that are fiercely nationalistic. This is only likely to happen, however, if political union is optional for each country.

Those countries, therefore, who prefer to relinquish their sovereignty can have full integration. Those, who thus prefer not to do so, can remain sovereign independent states.

Countries participating in the integration process who remain sovereign can still benefit from, and contribute to the community. They and the community can pursue: Bilateral trade, joint development and investment ventures, and cooperation in several areas.

These areas of cooperation can include: crime and drug trafficking detection and prevention, and education and training. They can also cooperate their efforts in: disease prevention and control, and responses to shared environmental concerns. Finally, they can also work together in mutually using the sea as an economic resource.

The topics I mention in this piece are relevant to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). This well-intentioned agreement involves the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Regional integration, the problems

Sovereignty is precious, we must never relinquish it.  We will suffer several disadvantages if we relinquish our sovereignty to become a part of a regional super state.

These disadvantages include our having to abolish immigration processing procedures for persons from other territories in the region. We will thus have to allow them unrestricted entry into our country at all times.

They will therefore enter without having to produce any documents at all. This same unchecked and undocumented entry will apply to aircraft and seacraft entering our country from the region.

Criminals, drug dealers, money launderers, drug addicts and drugs from the region will flood our country without any trace. Other undesirable persons such as prostitutes and people with certain diseases will also do the same. These people will put our health care, social services, housing and such sectors at risks. The demographics of our country will also change permanently, and we might one day, just end up losing our country.

I can recall examples in history of a people losing their identity and country. The latter-mentioned conditions above can contribute to this unfortunate situation becoming a harsh reality.

Mental Health Monitoring Of Politicians

Mental Health Monitoring Of Politicians

By Edward Fagan

Mental Health, and politicians?

Mental health and politicians provide us with an interesting topic which we can discuss for ages. We have had this topic around for quite a while. Remember when a king of the ancient Babylonian super power became mentally ill. He remained in this state for seven years, Daniel 4: 31-34. This king ruled during the period 605-562 B.C.

Politicians in this state, besides, have always provided satirists and comedians with great working material. They have also provided audiences to comedy shows with good reasons to attend them.

Should our political leaders mental state matter to us, and do we need to monitor their mental state? Yes, their mental state should matter to us, and we need to monitor it. Given these two answers we should be able to detect quite early, signs of existing or oncoming mental illness.

In the event we detect such mental illness, there is a sensible solution that addresses this problem. We can thus use this solution to remove such a person from office smoothly and efficiently.

The sensible solution I refer to above is the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It reflects the vision and foresight of the founding fathers of the U.S., even though it was ratified in 1967.

This is an awesome document and it has universal appeal and application. Other democratic countries can also adopt it to meet those needs and requirements that fall within its scope.

Anti-science Supporters and Climate Change

The End of Life for A Man Who Has A Secret; Anti-science Supporters And Climate Change

By Edward Fagan

“For the cause that needs assistance, against the wrongs that need resistance”
Anti-science campaign

Anti-science congressmen and senators in the U.S. are increasing their campaign against climate science. They are also campaigning against government policy that aims to halt global warming. This anti-science movement, however, is not new and is traceable back to the early modern era.

Shortly after 1514 the Astronomer and Mathematician Nicolaus Copernicus published a book about the workings of our solar system. The Roman Catholic Church banned this book because it contradicted their teaching on the subject. They continued to ban it for decades after his death in 1543.

The Mathematician, Physicist and Astronomer Galileo Galilei confirmed and advocated the research findings of Copernicus. In 1633, at the end of inquisition proceedings, the Roman Catholic Church convicted him of heresy. The church placed him under house arrest until his death in 1642.

This current movement against climate science in the U.S. congress and senate is holding its inquisition against the scientists first. Hopefully, after they silence the scientists then they will destroy the regulators. Finally, they will end all regulation of the large corporations whose interests they are so fond of defending.

A the end of the day, large corporations would have destroyed our planet, our race, and they themselves. They would have carried out the perfect suicide mission, the perfect terrorist plot!

Rebuilding Offers A Great Opportunity

Rebuilding Offers A Great OpportunityHello, can you spare a moment?

Rebuilding, improvement opportunities

Rebuilding a country after the destruction of a hurricane is hard work. It is also very costly. Once, however, government secures funding for the reconstruction effort, it can begin. Such effort also can help improve the economy and infrastructure of the country affected. This is so even as our hearts go out to those who suffered injury or lost relatives or property.

This increased construction effort generates needed economic activity in the affected country. It increases employment in the construction sector and other sectors, and increases spending power of workers generally. It also allows us the opportunity to improve or replace faulty or outdated infrastructural and other systems.

People of the countries affected should seek to benefit from this reconstruction opportunity in every way possible.

Health, The Best Bodily State

Health, The Most Important of Our Physical States; Faith, A Necessary Fact Of Life;
Health, its nature and importance 

Health, is it important that we achieve this state and maintain it throughout our life. What exactly is this state, and what do we need to do to achieve it?

Perhaps we should clear the air of some mistaken ideas of this state before we attempt to understand it. Fitness, strength, power (strength & speed), or stamina and endurance do not constitute this state. Performance of certain physical feats either, do not constitute or indicate the presence of this ideal state in a person.

In this state we are totally free of all diseases; and our internal organs are functioning optimally. (Diabetes reminds us of what happens when an internal organ malfunctions.) These organs, also, are of correct size, and in the correct position. An enlarged prostate and the problems it poses remind us of the importance of the size of our internal organs.

Obesity also can place undue pressure on some internal organs, causing them to change position and shape. Those pressured organs can malfunction, causing disease. External organs such as eyes and ears too, are functioning optimally.

Yes, our attaining this state is important as it allows us to live a full and disease free life.

Health, what we must do to achieve it

The body must become acid free to be disease free. Internal organs especially need biominerals for optimal functioning. (The pancreas needs zinc, the brain needs iron etc.) Those organs absorb and benefit from biominerals only, therefore we need only take such biominerals. Non biominerals or acid based minerals will not work but will contribute to the disease state.

We must use only Alkaline based nutrition to be free of all disease, as only this will work. Acid based nutrition will create and maintain the mucus-forming acid state. This acid state will make the body disease prone and prevent it from reaching the ideal state of health. We must follow an alkaline diet to be free from all diseases.

The End Of Life For A Man Who Has A Secret

The End of Life for A Man Who Has A Secret; Anti-science Supporters And Climate Change

An original short story written by Edward Fagan

The end of  life we often cause by our actions 

“The end of life we often cause even without realizing it.”, says Carl Phillips to a friend. He continues “We often follow a way of life which includes habits that contribute to the impairment of our health. This way of life we often follow also contributes to our premature death.”

“Many persons abuse substances which impair health and shorten their lifespan. People often eat badly and do not get adequate sleep. They often practise poor hygiene, practise unsafe sex and do not exercise. These mentioned practices also can contribute to illness and a shortened lifespan.”

“Individuals have different motives for following such substance abusing and other life threatening practices. Persons following the above practices, despite their motives, can suffer the same results, namely, illness and self caused death.”

“Death resulting from following a careless, harmful way of life is not much different to death through euthanasia or suicide. We view as normal, people who die through practising this careless, harmful and fatal approach to life. We view in a different light, people who die through euthanasia or who commit suicide.”

“Some people choose suicide as the method by which they would die prematurely. Those people who choose suicide view it as a direct, quick and cheap method of ending their life.”

“People also choose euthanasia as a means of fulfilling their desire to end their life prematurely. Euthanasia does not carry the stigma associated with suicide.”, Carl Phillips finally says to his friend.

Carl Phillips has a problem which he never mentions to anyone. Carl’s problem is a very serious one. He is always thinking about the end of his life because of this problem. Carl often wonders, given the nature of this problem, whether his life should not end prematurely.

The end of his life draws closer, but who is Carl Phillips?

Carl is a young man in his mid thirties. He has a beautiful wife and two lovely daughters. He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting and is a certified accountant. Carl works with a prosperous midsize company that is about to expand significantly. He is an assistant financial manager.

Carl’s other relatives include his parents and grandparents who are all alive. He also has brothers and sisters, uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, cousins and inlaws. He, expectedly, has many friends.

Carl is a sceptic, and he believes in humanism.

Carl gives bookkeeping and financial advice to a number of charitable organizations of which he is a member. He also participates in the programme and fund raising activities in these organizations.

Carl is an avid basketball fan and follows the game at all levels. He plays the game for his Alma Mater university past students team. In addition to this, he sits on the board of the university’s current basketball team.

Carl’s immediate family, extended family, in laws, friends, workmates and subordinates love him. Many other persons who come into contact with Carl, also love him. He does not seem to have any enemies.

None of the people who know and love Carl knows that he has a problem. Carl’s closest relatives do not even know that he has this problem. Only Carl and his doctor know of his problem. Carl keeps his secret very well.

The end and a little about Carl’s secret

Carl finds it hard to tell any of these people who he loves, and who love him, about his problem. Carl can not say he suffers from a rare incurable disease. He can not say its victims live no longer than a few years, even after early diagnosis. He tells it to no one; it is his secret.

Carl’s early diagnosis of this disease, before he starts to experience its symptoms, is to his advantage. This gives him time to prepare for the problems of this disease before they come.

This disease causes intense pain, suffering, potential multiple disability, and acute mental illness as time passes. It causes slow, agonizing, premature death in the later stages of its development, and it is incurable.

The end, and Carl’s choices before it comes

Carl can accept his problem without a response; in any case, it will mature and become worse as time passes. He then, gradually, will become helpless and a source of pain to himself and others. Carl will need others to look after him, totally, until he dies. He will become a very painful burden to his loved ones until he dies.

Carl can otherwise choose one of the methods of premature termination of life. He would save others and himself all of the future pain, suffering and hardship of his problem. Carl would also succeed in keeping his secret, and its pain, from others until he dies.

Carl is considering euthanasia as an option for premature termination of his life. He thinks that it offers advantages over the other, more common, option used for deliberate termination of life. One such advantage of euthanasia is that it allows for concealment of the motive, cause and method of death.

This advantage is very important to Carl. Carl, through It, can save others the pain of knowing about his illness and the truth of his self-caused death. He is going to choose euthanasia as the means through which he dies.

The end of his life draws much closer to Carl

Carl has chosen to die by means of euthanasia, as soon as possible. He phones his doctor and arranges an appointment to discuss this decision, and his doctor’s role in it. Both men attend for the appointment. Doctor Michael Hinkson is Carl’s doctor and a Christian. He is sad because Carl wants to end his life.

Carl asks Doctor Hinkson to set a date to perform the act according to his plan. Doctor Michael Hinkson politely declines to do so; and tells Carl that there is still time to find another solution. He therefore does not set a date to perform the role of doctor in Carl’s plan.

Doctor Hinkson agrees to continue helping Carl live with the disease, and cope with the problems it creates. Carl is sad because Doctor Hinkson does not show an interest in performing the role of doctor in his plan.

There is no cure for Carl’s disease in western medicine. Doctor Hinkson thinks this being so, there might still be a cure for this disease in alternative medicine. He thus intends to find such a cure for carl if any exist.

Carl’s disease and his commitment to euthanasia urgently require a cure or treatment. The required treatment, in the absence of a cure, must allow him to live a normal life with the disease.

Doctor Hinkson identifies a number of alternative forms of curing and treating diseases. He begins reading about cures and treatments for Carl’s disease in such alternative forms of treating disease. Doctor Hinkson looks into: Homeopathic, Ayurvedic, Chinese Traditional and European Traditional medicines. He also looks into several other alternative forms of medicine from various geographical regions around the world.

The end of life looms, but now there is hope

Doctor Hinkson reads about alternative remedies over several months but does not find a cure or treatment for Carl’s condition. It seems as if he will not find such a cure after all. In his reading, however, he has not exhausted all of the areas in this vast field of alternative remedies.

Doctor Hinkson decides to take a break from his reading. During this break, he recalls that he read about the distinguished research work of a prominent German biochemist and doctor. This biochemist and doctor is Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg. He thinks that findings from Dr. Warburg’s research might offer some hope for curing Carl’s condition.

He decides that after his break ends he certainly should consult the research work of Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg. Immediately after the break, Doctor Hinkson starts reading the research literature of Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg. He starts by reading about Dr. Warburg himself.

Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg (1883-1970), received the Nobel prize for his research in physiology in 1931. Some persons think that later, the Nobel Committee nominated Doctor Warburg for two more Nobel prizes separately. The Nobel Committee, however, did not present these two prizes to Dr. Warburg. Some persons suggest that the committee refused to present these prizes because of Germany’s position during the second world war.

The end goes further away as a cure comes closer 

While he reads copies of Dr. Warburg’s research literature, Doctor Hinkson finds an important discovery within that literature. This discovery offers a conceptual and practical explanation for the cause of, and the cure for Carl’s condition. Doctor Hinkson now is absolutely sure that the principle guidelines exist for finding a practical cure for Carl’s disease.

In one of his many statements concerning this discovery, Dr. Warburg writes “Diseases can not survive in an alkaline body.”. “According to this discovery”, Doctor Hinkson says “Carl’s body is not in an alkaline state. It is in an acidic state. We will cure the disease when we remove the acidic state from Carl’s body and create an alkaline state.”.

Doctor Hinkson continues reading Dr. Warburg’s research findings. He knows that Dr. Warburg’s biochemistry research findings definitely offer a cure for Carl’s condition. Doctor Hinkson decides to apply relevant aspects of Dr. Warburg’s biochemistry research findings toward curing Carl’s disease.

To achieve this aim, Doctor Hinkson is also reading the literature on applied biochemistry research. He begins to apply biochemistry wisdom to Carl’s diet, medication and living habits. Doctor Hinkson prescribes the following for Carl: a pure vegetarian, all alkaline diet, and herbal-only all-alkaline medication as necessary. He also prescribes an alcohol-free, tobacco-free and drug-free lifestyle, that also excludes other unnecessary and harmful living habits.

Doctor Hinkson explains to Carl, very clearly, the course of action he prescribes, its underlying principles and its desired outcomes. Carl listen’s very attentively to all that Doctor Hinkson explains to him about the prescribed course of action. He clearly understands all that Doctor Hinkson says to him.

The end starts to be less of a problem  

Carl begins to follow the prescribed course of action, and looks forward to becoming cured of his disease. He also looks forward to experiencing the other positive, life-changing outcomes of following the prescribed course of action.

Doctor Hinkson continues reading the research findings in the fields of biochemistry and its application. He also continues reading the research findings in the field of herbalism for herbs that effectively and completely cure diseases. He remains tireless in his effort to find a cure for Carl’s disease.

In his reading as mentioned above, Doctor Hinkson discovers the work of world renown herbalist, the late Dr. Sebi. Dr. Sebi is founder of Dr. Sebi’s Research Institute. He also visits the institute’s website at: www.drsebiscellfood.com. His research finally reaches its destination. He finds what he seeks. Dr. Sebi’s products certainly are going to cure Carl’s disease. Doctor Hinkson shares this awesome discovery with Carl. Carl experiences sheer excitement.

Dr. Sebi’s Research Institute cures all diseases including: AIDS, sickle cell anemia, diabetes and cancers among others. They cured all diseases for the past twenty eight years.

The institute recommends only an alkaline diet. In its treatments, the institute uses only alkaline herbs and herbal compounds. Dr. Sebi replaces the acidic state with the alkaline state. He replenishes the body with the minerals it lost during the acid state. He restores the mucus membrane by removing the mucus caused by the acid state.

Doctor Hinkson wastes no time at all. He places carl on Dr. Sebi’s alkaline diet. (This diet is available at: www.drsebiscellfood.com.) From Dr. Sebi’s Institute, he orders the relevant alkaline herbal compounds. The compounds arrive in two days. Carl starts to take them immediately. His confidence in the compounds is limitless.

The end fades away, the cure works

Carl follows the diet faithfully and takes the compounds as instructed. After one week, the lab will test Carl’s blood for the disease. This is the same lab which initially diagnosed his disease. One week passes, and Carl attends the lab for his test. He takes the test and should receive the results in a few days.

On the third day Carl receives the test results. He opens the envelope slowly, in the presence of Doctor Hinkson. Both men look at each other before reading the results. Carl reads the results, and tears settle in his eyes. He then hands the results to Doctor Hinkson. Doctor Hinkson reads them and tears also form in his eyes. When he finishes reading the test results, Doctor Hinkson makes a short statement. “God, through the knowledge he has given us, has cured your disease my friend.”.
