Improve people to improve society. This begins with improving thoughts.
Your current and stored thoughts form much of your identity. They also impact
every cell, emotion, and action of your being.
You control thoughts that you seek, receive, store, remember, avoid, block, and forget.
Use thoughts to improve.
- Seek and receive healthy thoughts; for example, be selective about TV shows
you watch and music you listen to. Avoid unhealthy ones, such as those that are sad, scary, angry, or violent. Also
limit exposure to negative news, but be adequately informed. (Society is mainly influenced by repeated thoughts
from television. It is also influenced by radio, Internet, recordings, movies, and video games. Some of this causes
excessive fear, which benefits some governments, religions, industries, and banks.)
- Make healthy attitudes, emotions, and actions happen automatically
by repeatedly storing, and acting on, thought programs (commands).
At times avoid all thoughts
of others for a while, and experience only your own thoughts.
Have courage to question everything. Especially question entities that limit freedom to question.
Think for yourself. Independently investigate.
Have an open mind. Be
able to consider something without necessarily accepting it.
Learn from diverse sources. Assess them for any bias.
Avoid entities that limit freedom to learn.
Promote love of learning. Learn and teach. Support sources of
learning and knowledge.
Be humbled by the vast unknown.
Use facts and reason to reach conclusions.
Know and own yourself. Be aware
of, and accountable for, your thoughts and actions.
Have appropriate thoughts and actions. There
is a time and a place for almost everything.
Do good. Have good thoughts and actions.
Practice the Golden Rule. Treat others how you want to be treated.
Do not sin. Sin is to needlessly cause harm.
Obey government laws of your location.
Two-thirds of the world's people are governed by experiments in democracy,
from republics to direct democracies.
Since the experiments
began, societies changed due to: rapid advances in technology, vast increases in population, accelerated
globalization, and mass media's broad influence.
experiments are degenerating because:
- the small proportion of
society that can afford public election campaigns is decreasing, due to the large and growing wealth gap;
- the cost of using mass media
for campaigns is high and increasing; and,
- most voters are influenced by mass media, which is controlled
by very few.
Some experiments are becoming police states to cope with growing social problems, mainly stemming
from increasing poverty at home and abroad. This change usually starts with increasing government powers
of surveillance and law enforcement, as well as reducing people's legal rights.
Use legal rights to improve government:
question, learn, inform, assemble, protest, vote, become representatives
in government, hold referendums, and conduct boycotts.
Improve government by conducting
new experiments. Conduct them first at local levels, and experiment in the most successful at higher levels. Poll the
public about results, and publish poll findings.
In some experiments: require term limits for more offices, increase use of councils, and increase
use of random selection.
In history's first democracy, people knew that selecting
representatives (for social and individual justice) by public elections is easily corrupted. So they randomly selected
them (from eligible candidates) for councils and trial juries. In modern democracies, juries are still randomly
People also knew that decision-making by only one person (such as a president)
is easily corrupted. So they used only councils. Each council member served as chairperson for an equal time during
the council's term.
QUALITY OF LIFE
During the past two centuries, quality of life improved due to advances in
technology that improved: agriculture, industry, healthcare, transportation, communication, and information systems.
These improvements helped accelerate population growth and globalization.
Vast growth of large populations now threatens quality of life. Much of this growth is due
to ideologies against birth control. Some is due to parents' need to produce many children, so that enough survive
high child mortality and can help the family.
World population has grown increasingly fast: 1 billion in 1804, 2b in 1927, 3b in 1959, 4b in 1974, 5b
in 1987, 6b in 1999, and 7b in 2011.
growth increases poverty, which can increase: religious and racial tensions, crime, disease, migration, terrorism,
revolution, and war.
Impacts of poverty spread
as globalization increases. For example, the mass transfer of jobs from industrialized nations to China and India
(which had 1+ billion in poverty) reduced long-term standards of living in the industrialized nations. It also increased global prices of some things,
as personal consumption rates increased in China and India.
Large population growth benefits:
- religions gaining contributors;
- businesses gaining cheaper labor and bigger markets; and,
- industries and banks profiting from violent conflict.
Humanely control population growth by:
- increasing awareness of harm caused by overpopulation;
- improving awareness, affordability, and availability of voluntary, preventive, birth control; and,
- reducing parents' need to produce many children, by improving healthcare and increasing
opportunities for education and employment.
POWER OF THOUGHT
Make healthy attitudes, emotions,
and actions happen automatically by repeatedly storing, and acting on, thought programs (commands).
To consciously store programs, be in an active mental state of using your powers to:
be fully aware (using many senses), question, analyze, understand, feel emotions, express, question, analyze, and take action;
and repeatedly receive, store, and act on programs. Repeatedly hear, see, read, write, say, and remember programs.
To subconsciously store programs, be in a passive mental state of using only partial
awareness (only seeing and hearing, such as when you watch TV); and repeatedly receive and store programs. You can use programs
that are sensed or subliminal (just below sensory perception). While sleeping use audio recordings of programs.
To make effective programs:
- Use short, simple sentences to avoid confusion. Use phrases about things happening now, such as I am, I
have, I do, or I feel.
- Avoid using
phrases about things happening later, such as I should, I will, or I would. Mention healthy things
that you want.
- Avoid mentioning unhealthy things that
you don’t want and words about them, such as avoid, free (from/of), reject, or stop.
- Avoid using unsure phrases, such as I could
or I might.
- Avoid using negating words such
as no or not, prefixes such as dis, non, or un, and suffixes such as less,
free, or out. If you use them, emphasize them; because it is easy to overlook small things that change meanings
of big things.
Use thought programming
appropriately. Get medical help if you need it.
