That’s correct, Your choice… should be your choice… not a choice imposed by someone else upon you.
We all know the downside of choices being removed by the penal system. We all hate the thoughts of jail.
Yet the majority allow themselves (even pay for the privilege) to be mentally jailed through a system I call generic hate created by the mainstream press.
Let this man explain why we should not worry too much about generic hate using an example of the Ecuador Iran connection.
Recently a reader sent this note: I was shocked to see news that Amadinajad will soon visit Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaraugua and Ecuador. I have to cross Ecuador off my list of countries of interest after learning that.
Hopefully my reply puts some perspective on this.
There are many many reasons why someone might choose not to go to Ecuador.
The visit of two politicians trying to get the attention of the US government should not be one of them.
Because only you can determine if any one place is right for you, we always recommend you visit first, rent second and finally after you really feel settled in… if you still love being there, buy and become a resident.
I first warned readers about the Iran Ecuador connection almost two years ago.
Please note that the the focus of our articles… is to help readers have alternatives… because no one knows how the world is going to unfold.
One seminar delegate recently told me how he searched the world for a perfect pristine isolated place in North America away from dangers and pollution. After years of effort he found what he felt was perfect and settled there… only to be directly in the path of radiation and one first to see Japanese flotsam from the Tsunami wash up on its shores.
No one knows how the world is going to unfold.
Ecuador is only a part of our business. We were there most of the time for 15 years and have not been regular lately but not because it is a bad place. Nor did we go to Ecuador originally because we thought America and Europe, where we lived then, were bad places.
If you choose to avoid Ecuador by all means do so. But do it for the right reasons.
The establishment always uses local press to create enemies to shift the national focus away from their own problems. This I think we can all agree is a time honored political tradition.
We do not care where anyone goes… our mission is to help our readers think for themselves beyond the daily press and to embrace change and make decisions that are best for them based around their own personal circumstances.
If one followed the press in the 1950s they feared Russia (and Cuba). Then China was the bad guy (now the good guys despite continued human abuse) and then Vietnam… then Iraq… then Afghanistan. Now it looks like Iran is bad while China, Russia and Vietnam are great places to invest. Cuba will be the next good guy!
So over the past decades if you lived by the press and cut yourself off of every country that was visited by leaders of China, Russia, Vietnam and Cuba, you missed some great opportunities. I know because I was among the first Americans in China. This is another reason why we have helped organize the first Super Thinking + Spanish course to be conducted in Cuba for Canadians and Europeans.
Am I correct? The New York Times has just announced that National Geographic is hosting tours for Americans to Cuba.
So don’t people who did not come to Ecuador because Fidel Castro was there a few years ago feel silly?
Imagine how we would have been the bad guys if we did this a few years ago! Now some Americans are making fortunes taking Americans on tours to Cuba because the State Department gives them permission. The government in Iran may be hostile to the US… but for all we know those Latin visits could be engineered by the CIA to get the Latins to tell Iran to back off. I do not know that this is the case but this is the point… we do not know, do we?
What I do know is that when I was in China in the 60s the people there were great and they hated their politicians. When I was in VietNam (not as a solder but in business) in the 60s the Vietnamese people were great. They hated their politicians. The Ecuadorian people are great and they hate their politicians. I love Americans and most of them hate most of their politicians as well.
So most of the people in the world seem to have three important things in common. #1: We are all great and wonderful. #2: Mankind being what it is power corrupts so we are all caught in a terrible system. #3: We are all pretty disgusted with politicians.
The problem is the daily press stimulate generic hate to such a degree that we miss so many wonderful things and people. We hate Chinese. We hate Russians. We hate Cubans. We hate Iranians. But really we are all the same… great people caught in the grindstones of a nasty system that we can do little about.
If one lets the daily press choose your friends and enemies and guide your life… one will always be caught in the messes of the masses and miss so much opportunity, great people and wonderful stuff.
Let your inner wisdom and the personal details of your life and your innate intelligence lead you instead. Follow the feelings of what you love. Go to your desires rather than away from your hates and fears. You’ll find more satisfaction, fulfillment and success!
Regards and good luck wherever you go.
Are you leaving North America because you feel civil rights are going to be thrown out the window. Forget about it. They have been gone for decades.
Here are two examples.
This photo of from a January 5, 2012 LA Times obituary by Elaine Woo entitled “Gordon Hirabayashi dies at 93; opposed internment of Japanese Americans”.
The obit said:
Gordon Hirabayashi, who was convicted for defying the evacuation and internment of Japanese Americans on the West Coast during World War II and, four decades later, not only cleared his name but helped prove that the government had falsified the reasons for the mass incarceration, has died. He was 93.
Civil rights often get thrown out the window. This does not necessarily make a place or the people bad.
For example no one has recently written to me about my residence in North Carolina and explained that they’ll never go to that state and that North Carolinians are bad.
Yet a January 10, 2012 CNN article by Debra Goldschmidt entitled “North Carolina task force recommends $50,000 for sterilization victims” shows what North Carolina did.
Here is an excerpt (bolds and underlines are mine). Living people who were forcibly sterilized as part of a decades-long eugenics program in North Carolina should receive a one-time payment of $50,000, a state task force recommended on Tuesday.
North Carolina sterilized an estimated 7,600 people between 1929 and 1974, many of them against their will.
The state apologized for the sterilizations in 2002, and Gov. Bev Perdue created the compensation task force last year. Many states once had eugenics programs, and seven have apologized, but North Carolina is the first to consider paying victims.
The five-member task force – including a doctor, lawyer, historian, retired judge and retired journalist – met for 10 months and has a February 1 deadline to send a report, including recommendations for compensation, to the governor.
Even deciding how to make up for the eugenics program is no easy task. Historians and experts on compensation say there are no comparable examples to model monetary reparations after. This is a far different situation than better-known reparations debates, such as slavery, for which no compensation has been awarded, or the Nazi Holocaust, which is tied to individual awards allotted after an extensive documentation process. The closest example, experts say, is the 1988 decision by the U.S. Senate to pay $20,000 to Japanese-Americans who were held in internment camps during World War II. Surviving victims were paid the flat fee for the suffering caused by displacement.
Steven Selden, a University of Maryland professor and author of the book “Inheriting Shame: The Story of Eugenics and Racism in America,” said the national eugenics movement was about altering the gene pool and eliminating people who spoke, looked, or behaved differently. What set North Carolina apart was how recently it occurred: Most states stopped after World War II, but North Carolina continued sterilizing people into the 1970s.
Photo from ABC website.
Caption: In this June 22, 2011 photo, Elaine Riddick and her son Tony Riddick embrace as they pose for a photo before testifying before the Justice for Sterilization Victims Foundation task force compensation hearing in Raleigh, N.C. Riddick is fighting for compensation from her native state of North Carolina over her sterilization as a young girl.
This seems unimaginable. Yet an August 15, 2011 ABC article by Allen Breed entitled “Eugenics Victim, Son Fighting Together for Justice” says: Elaine Riddick’s small frame heaves, her rapid, shallow breaths whistling in her throat as she forces the words out between her sobs.
“So what am I worth?” she asks the five people seated at the long table before her. “The kids that I did not have, COULD not have. What are THEY worth?”
“Priceless,” Tony Riddick whispers as he gently rubs his mother’s back.
Elaine Riddick has been asking these same questions, in one forum or another, for the past 40 years. This most recent appearance in late June was before the Governor’s Task Force to Determine the Method of Compensation for Victims of North Carolina’s Eugenics Board.
As far as Riddick is concerned, she tells the panel, she was raped twice. Once by the man who fathered her son, and again by the Eugenics Board of the State of North Carolina, which deemed her, at age 14, unfit to procreate.
“I am NOT feebleminded,” she shouts, turning to face the packed hearing room. “I’ve never BEEN feebleminded.”
“No,” says her son, standing beside her behind the podium.
Tears streaming down her face, she says, “They cut me open like I was a HOG.”
I do not worry too much about what politicians say. Their words and actions are victims of the fears and worries of the total population… at times.
At times politicians take advantage and stir up fears and worries. Such stirring can lead to a suspension of American rights that seems quite unbelievable… such as in North Carolina.
Yet I can assure you the people of North Carolina nor the state itself are bad. The state is wonderful… the people fantastic! Nor are the Ecuadorian people or the country of Ecuador a bad place because a leader from Iran visits there.
A visit by a politician from a country that US politicians say is bad is not a good reasons to dislike or avoid another country.
Our site is about how to have alternatives. Ecuador is one of many. So is North Carolina and Florida and I predict so too will Cuba be… soon.
Choose or reject any of them by all means. Just make the decision for the right reasons.
Politicians will use external events to collect the votes and/or support of their public. Expect USA – Iran tensions to grow as the November elections approach. Don’t let this distort your view of what is really important for you.
A concept I outlined in my first 1970s book, Passport to International Profit remains my mantra called the “Six Point Command Posture” which is to:
Live in one country
Bank in a second country
Invest in many countries
Earn in two or more countries
Use a company incorporated in a fifth country
Take a second residence
Learn how to develop this tactic so you can choose to live, earn and invest where it is best for you at our February 8-11, 2012 Super Thinking + Business and Investing seminar in Mt. Dora, Florida.
Quantum Thinking for Everlasting Wealth Seminar
Quantum Thinking for Everlasting Wealth Seminar. How to retire from the rat race… at any age. Where the writing, business and reading world meet.
Gary Scott teaching delegates about quantum wealth.
Learn Quantum Thinking & How to Have Everlasting Wealth with Gary and Merri Scott.
These special seminars look far beyond creating or improving your own business for income. They begin with a global economic update that helps integrate thinking of the past with the here and now of global economics.
Learn how to integrate your brain waves so you become smarter and how to gain never ending income by continually spotting contrasts distortions and trends.
The seminar is divided into three sessions.
Each session builds on the next to help you learn how to gain freedom, remove stress and earn more by combining powerful tools of thoughts and business action
Sessions One: Our global World present past and future… seen from outside the box.
Sessions Two: How to have quantum wealth and health with more intelligence with whole brain thinking through “Frequency Modulation.Saturday – How to Write.
Session Three: International Micro Business – “How to Have a Global Income “.
This seminar provides a learning funnel that integrates your personal desires, skills and circumstances to current and historical global economic realities.
Here is what you learn:
* Global economic history - how this combines with each business’s past… future… interest, skills and knowledge.
The historical review sees current markets for writers based around economic cycles as outlined first by Russian economist, Nikolai Kondratiev, who proposed a theory that Western capitalist economies have long term (50 to 60 years) cycles of boom followed by depression. These business cycles are to this day called “Kondratiev Waves”.
Kondratiev’s thoughts were refined by Austrian economist, Joseph Shumpeter, which we have extensively researched and follow the global economy (and US stock market) and how it has moved through a series of bull…. and then a bear (a period of no growth) cycles that each run around 15 year bull as shown in this graph below.
These stock market bull and bear cycles are based on cycles of human interaction, war, technology and productivity.
These cycles are a driving force in the creation of opportunity.
These cycles are intricately connected with the new waves of productivity that grow from the great human platform of combat. The cycle goes like this.
An economic downturn enhances a war or threat of war. Struggles for survival in the war (like the Civil War, WWI, WWII and the Cold War (WWIII), super charge inventiveness that creates new forms of productivity…the steam engine, the internal combustion engine, production line processes, jet engines, TV, farming techniques, plastics, telephone, computer and lastly during the Cold War, the internet.
Each new invention helped win a war. Shifting the technology to domestic use… after the war… created a boom.
Each boom leads to excess.
Each excess led to a correction. The correction creates an economic downturn.
The economic downturn enhances a war or threat of war.
The global economy is currently in a major correction cycle… at the correct time and we should expect that a war (or some major struggle of the epoch or threat of war such as the Cold War) should begin to build! This latest downturn started almost exactly (1998), 16 years after the last boom began (1982)…which began after the last great human struggle called the Cold War that lasted about a decade when the Soviet Union collapsed.
If the cycle repeats, the struggle should build now due to the poor economy. If the cycles repeat then the bottom is around 2012-2013. Everything will seem bleakest… darkest… blackest.
This will be the best time of all in decades to invest!
The epoch of the Cold War fought Maggie Thatcher and Ronnie Reagan fought the evil empire (1981 to 1989). The war was won when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 and the Soviet Empire dissolved in 1991. That war created an arms race that created new technology including internet.
The economic war that follows the boom comes from the domestication of technology developed during the struggle.
The technological burst off WWIII accelerated when access to the ARPANET was expanded in 1981 by the National Science Foundation (NSF) which developed the Computer Science Network (CSNET) providing access to supercomputer sites in the United States from research and education organizations.
In 1982 the Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) was standardized and the concept of a world-wide network of fully interconnected TCP/IP networks called the Internet was introduced. Commercial internet service providers (ISPs) began to emerge in the late 1980s and 1990s.
The dot-com bubble (also referred to as the Internet bubble and the Information Technology Bubble) was the post war boom, a speculative bubble covering roughly 1995–2000.
The next step is to decide where this cycle is and how this creates business opportunity through distortions, contrasts and trends.
Contrasts and distortions in currencies, markets and social and demographic shifts to spots trends.
For example we look at how each new wave of technology creates new problems. Shifts from WWII included increased fertilization in farming and more women at work. This caused dietary differences in the American family that led to an explosion of health food stores.
* Problems & Trends Create Income Possibilities
Surprisingly the inventors of Graham Crackers and Kellogg Corn Flakes were among some of the first to spur an interest in health food so in the 1920s and 1930s health food stores did start to open in the USA selling products such as blackstrap molasses and brewer’s yeast. However health food stores as we know them did not start to boom until the 1960s in connection to the newly emerging ecology movement and counterculture to modern living, intense fertilization, pesticides, women at work, etc.
Image the wealth you would have gained writing about that trend coming!
We explore potential counter cultures created by the internet… a WWIII technology… that could erupt and ways to write and do business based on this.
We pay special attention to economic distortions. Distortions create writing opportunities because your micro business is the best investment you can make backed by your own time, effort and energy.
Quantum Thinking For Everlasting Wealth Seminar – October 5-6-7, 2012 West Jefferson, North Carolina.
Another session in the seminar shows “How to have an international micro business.” These sessions are highly practical and usable. They focus on how to use modern technology to start global micro businesses with minimal investments of time and capital.
By starting small and building with stepping stones and a harmonious focus, Merri and I have learned how to almost own several profit generating phrases at Google. We, along with our webmaster David Cross share the secrets of how you can use words to create your own global income as well.
The seminar shares how we use the first four of “Seven Ps” (Person, Problem and Promise, Product) to zero in on key word phrases. Then you learn how to use the Fifth P Promise to develop new customers. The Sixth P is the Prospecting Path and Seventh P is the Presentation to create income.
We use this system successfully on the internet and share what we do with you as we look at ways you too can have a high income generating business… even if you never leave your home.
This knowledge has really helped previous course delegates. Here is what one previous delegate just shared:
“Gary , I have been working on my website, healthy-holistic-living.com site and I figure it is time for another update. It is really hard to believe it, but my site just keeps growing and growing and I am now averaging 2000 visitors per day!
“What I find to be most amazing is that in just a few short months my site is #1 out of over a million sites and sometimes even millions of sites! As you always say the internet is the ‘Great Equalizer’ anybody given the right tools can compete on the internet.“Below are some of my search results. I only listed GOOGLE and YAHOO but you can find similar results on both MSN and ASK.com.
#1 out of 1,190,000 …………………………“definition healthy spirit “
#1 and #2 out of 1,210,000.………………….“benefits to living a holistic life “
#1 out of 1,260,000 …………………………“gaining a healthy mind “
#1 and #2 out of 1,260,000 …………………“benefits to living a holistic life “
#2 out of 935,000 …………………………..“holistic lifestyle tips “
You will learn how to use the same system to expand (or start) your business globally!
This is a perfect era to increase your wealth and improve your lifestyle as you reduce stress with your own a micro writing self publishing business.
Merri and I enjoy having an international internet business and it is doing well. Almost every month our internet business sales are higher than they were in the same month a year before.
We are very thankful to be one of the most read sites in Ecuador and do very well in the US and Canada too.
May we share our experiences to help you learn how to enjoy this satisfaction and success through your micro business?
Here is a recent ranking of just one of our five websites.
This ranking from Alexa.com shows how our site is in the top 16,000 web sites in America, top 8,000 in Canada and top 500 in Ecuador. There is more. While many suffered in 2007, 2008 and 2009, the recession caused our internet business to grow.
Our seminar helps you learn how to use the same tactics we use… in your micro business.
Our sales doubled during the recession. Our list of readers increased over 100%. Since the economy picked up our business growth has slowed but business is still growing. This is how good, value oriented business grow by the way.
Value oriented micro businesses should increase steadily in good times. They do not get caught overextending in euphoria. Then during bad times they are in a position to do really well!
Knowing the micro business philosophies we follow can help you use the internet in business if you desire.
The Western economy has changed… probably forever. The old ways are gone and those who held jobs… or still have work in the private sector have lost the most.
The economy will recover… but the way people earn and work… and how the money is distributed and to whom especially… has been profoundly altered. This is especially true in value added countries like Canada… the USA and most of Europe.
We are in an era of global structural change… in economics… in society and in the way we work because technology brings us low cost administration, low cost access to data, low cost communication, and low cost travel, plus the opening of markets beyond logic that rely more on passion and experience than on efficiency and cost.
We look at these economic and structural changes, and what to do about them in the business portion of our seminar.
We’ll see how markets are shifting from materialistic needs to emotional needs.
We’ll see great opportunity for writers in the following markets:
Love-friendship-control-freedom-tradition-change-big answers-recognition and care. These are emotional needs that create expanding demand and business opportunity. The next generation is having more involvement in every step of the buying process. Uniting the body and mind is an emerging market. Natural physical health, fitness will expand but botox and insulin sales will also grow.
Mental health, retreats and spas prosper. The health of the planet is becoming a more important business.There is a shift of emphasis from GDP to GWB (General Wellness Barometer Happiness Factor). Business will operate with more passion.
Learn about other business possibilities…
In the global micro business sessions we’ll see ideas on how to:
* Create export businesses
* Self Publishing/Writing
* Internet Sales
* Ecuador Business Ideas
* Organic Business Ideas
* Health Business Ideas
* Ideas for Cuban Business
Quantum Thinking For Everlasting Wealth Seminar – October 5-6-7, 2012 West Jefferson, North Carolina.
The educational program Merri and I have developed uses a different form of frequency modulation that opens enormous opportunity for expansion, understanding, peacefulness as well as greater wealth.
FM teaching uses frequency (in music and with each sense… sight…. smell, tactile and even smell) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated. This brings forth the three C’s: Calm, Clarity and Coherence.
FM creates relaxed concentration… a key to happiness, health and success.
You learn whole brain thinking that can help improve your freedom, satisfaction and income through business.
This part of the seminar helps us integrate their brain waves so they are more intelligent, intuitive and relaxed.
This workshop shows how to get into and stay in a state of relaxed concentration… a mental state shown to enhance almost every human capability… especially writing.
Merri and I are explorers so we have used this techniques for decades. We are always looking for what’s next… trying to stay on or ahead of the leading edge and need ways to think outside he box..
This journey has helped us alter the main mission in our lives again and again… every seven to 14 years.
The Quantum Wealth Frequency Modulation sessions share ideas on how to live better…. using frequency modulation to be smarter… stronger…. more energetic… and healthier.
Most of us have never so many problems that create opportunity as those that face us now. A growing global population… depletion of natural resources and technology are bring social and financial shifts at a pace never seen before.
These shifts will rob many of their financial well being, but fortunately the same technology that is creating the change can also help you gain prosperity like you have never imagined. We look forward to sharing these riches with you.
We are in our 44th year of business and we share what we have learned and where this is leading our activities in our upcoming seminar. Join us.
Each seminar updates how we doing business globally, and even how we are investing… and why… right now. Join Merri, me
Spotting new trends and applying them to our micro business has brought us a strong and continual flow of income. More importantly the process has been fulfilling…. beneficial to society and healthy. Now you can benefit from the latest… and perhaps strongest… of all the trends we have stumbled upon.
Applying the concepts of quantum thinking to spotting trends over the past 44 years has helped thousands of our readers make and save millions. The success of our readers has been a driving force in our lives yet we have always wanted to do more so continued looking deeper at ways we can share how to have income, stability, good health and contentment.
Join us to learn our most recent experiences and most advanced concepts and ideas.
