America’s Most Wanted. Public Enemy #1 and # 2.

Attention. Attention, we interrupt your programming to bring you this breaking news bulletin to alert you to Public Enemy #1 and #2 being spotted in your area. They should be considered dangerous and not to be entertained, engaged, or challenged. An all point bulletin has been issued with this warning so be on the lookout for them and their gang. They and their gang have eluded our checkpoints, APBs, and capture. We ask for the public’s help to bring them under control and end their rampage throughout society. They have become ever more emboldened and arrogant in the audacity of their attacks and pursuit of crossing boundaries to elude detection. Our efforts have been to detect, identify, verify, and prevent their wanton disregard for social order.

As we increase our efforts to bring this gang under control and critical information continues to pour in, we will keep you abreast of any additional developments. There have been widely reported sightings and leads but without the public’s diligence and performance of their civic duty, we may labor in our pursuits. I repeat do not be lulled into or swindled by their unassuming demeanor and deception. There have been reports of sympathizers who have aided and abetted this gang by harboring and nourishing them and are undoubtedly unaware of the risks and danger they assume to conceal them. This gang is volatile and may turn on you without much provocation or warning. There have been many documented instances where this has occurred and where the aftermath of their wrath has devastated those who have harbored them. Be especially diligent about the children as they are notably susceptible and preferred victims of this gang as are the young adults.

At this time, we want to share with you as much information as we can without jeopardizing our efforts to suppress this gang or endanger the public unnecessarily. We are working to further identify the members but are reasonably certain of their roles and areas of expertise. This gang is run by their two oldest members referred to as Public Enemy one and two. They are believed to have started the gang and give it directions although various gang members have been known to operate independently or in conjunction with other members. This is one element that makes this gang increasingly dangerous is they are all very proficient in their own right but when combined or operating as a whole they are very formidable. The entire gang rarely works together at the same time as their motives may differ although there are reliable reports that members may be present but not participate in the actions of the others. They all flee the area together despite their participation. Their descriptions and characteristics are distinctly identifiable.

Public Enemy number one is unquestionably the mastermind and the orchestrator of all the gang activities and is an active participant at all times. The gang’s instructions are controlled in this manner and the gang uses the charismatic and alluring persuasion of this member. This member displays the ability to infiltrate the heart and minds of unsuspecting civilians and is ruthlessly determined to deceive and convince others into assisting. Logic, reasoning, outright deception, and persuasion are the specialties of this member.

Public Enemy number two may be the downfall of this outfit for the flashy and braggadocious manner which seems to be addictively displayed. Though not the most dangerous of the gang, the certainty projected along with the skill set makes this member undeniably the driving force of the gang and to be revered. The image of the gang is shaped by this member and generates an attitude of unlimited power and invincibility. This member is always present and the influence is active and compliments Public Enemy number one quite well and has been known to take charge directing the gang’s objectives.

The next members are the twins, fraternal, not identical twins, although they bear a strong resemblance to each other and often act as one unit with many similarities in their behavior. They are by far the most dangerous of the gang and like Public Enemy number two are to be revered but also feared for their insatiable anger and hostile anti-social disposition. They are more controllable if kept separated but must be constantly monitored by the other gang members for the uncertainty of when they may explode or what may cause them to become extremely callous and violent. When it comes to getting their hands dirty or doing the heavy lifting for the gang it is a delight that they savor to be able to unleash the appetite for violence. Once uncorked they are extremely hard to bring under control until they satisfy their thirst and exhaust their energy. This is their only value to the gang, to do the unspeakable without remorse. They are simply muscle without much thought or self-control and psychotic behavior.

This fifth member is the cousin of the twins and can also become unhinged by the slightest provocation with actions that range from petty to outrageous. It must run in the family and being first cousins, their behavior differs slightly and has more of the sociopath lean, including impulsive behaviors and responses that are not justified by the circumstances. This member is tolerated only because of the value of the twins but not trusted or well-liked because of constant complaining and petty tendencies. The displays of neediness, proclamations of possessiveness, and conspiracies of betrayal detract from any value to the gang.


The sixth member is known to give just as much in contribution as is sometimes taken away by a demeanor and having aspirations larger than the capabilities with delusions of one day running the outfit despite the known limitations. Known to be unreasonable and though clever claims to know more than the other members of the gang. Though very determined and principled resist suggestions and instructions. Irreplaceable as the encouragement and go-getter of the bunch when on point. This member functions as the checker and balancer of the gang.

The next two are related although uncertain how. They have only one objective and that is what is in it for them, they have a tight bond, and they have high ambitions. They are the least trustworthy of the bunch and most likely to flip when confronted possessing little fortitude and even less loyalty. Their tools of the trade are an eye for big-time scores and corruption through vulnerabilities. They are basically first-class high stakes grifters. Every outfit of ill repute can find value in their talents.

The last to round out the crew is the getaway driver and a hideout where they can meet if something goes wrong and they are separated… What’s that, they have been spotted by our topnotch inspector and tracked to their hideout with no time for backup and it is imperative that we act immediately not knowing if and when a chance like this will present itself again. We have the place surrounded and apprehension is imminent, but we must move quickly and use the element of surprise on a gang that has often appeared as ghosts that transcend time, space, and body. The go-ahead has been given to execute the raid with extreme caution. We await word of the all-clear.

We are proud and relieved to let you know that the raid was an overwhelming success and all members have been apprehended and identified by name. The identifications are as follows; the leader Public Enemy number one is the Conscious Mind known to be a notorious enabler and deceiver, Public Enemy number two is the Ego known to initiate bloated perceptions of self, the twins are Hatred and Evil wanted for many unspeakable crimes of brutality, Five is the cousin Jealousy aka Envy wanted for pettiness due to feelings being hurt or others good fortune, six is Pride who lead to the gangs’ downfall and a real know it all, the next two were found hiding together Greed and Lust hoping to hide the goods and escape discovery, and last the getaway driver Denial aka Ignore was found to use the same pattern of the getaway when returning to the gang’s hideout known as the heart and minds of individuals.

We as well as the public would like to recognize and thank the one responsible for figuring out this group of punks, tracking them down, and bringing them to accountability. We are indebted to the only one possessing the cunning to corral this gang and that is the one and only Subconscious Mind. The subconscious mind is the most powerful computer known to man and not even remotely understood for its full range of capabilities. The subconscious mind is the truth, where change occurs, and a servant to our existence and perspective. It controls not only our body but our perspective and accomplishments. The key to life lays in the subconscious mind and our ability to access it for the good of our being but we must recognize and allow it to “apprehend” the deceptions of the conscious mind and the ego where the henchmen get their direction and permission. Allow your subconscious mind to control your conscious mind and ego to overcome your insecurities and self-limiting behavior, correcting your flaws, and controlling your emotions. Please research the subconscious mind to further understand its function and power.

Moral of the story < Your conscious mind is designed to justify your thoughts and actions no matter how unreasonable according to your will and weaknesses making it easier to succumb to insecurities, fears, and delusions. It creates comparisons that are dangerous in and of itself but develops either an inferiority complex or a superiority complex in relation to the comparison. Ego is a creation of the conscious mind and leads to excesses. It creates actions that crave confirmation and validation outside of yourself forcing you to develop needy low self-esteem and self-doubt or a narcissistic exaggerated ego-driven façade in which the masquerade must be sustained by flattery and attention.

Interrupting your programing was a reference to the psychology of your perspective and the forces that distract your focus to scatter its concentration among the symptoms and not directed towards the cure. The cure resides in the subconscious mind to directly address the other issues instead of individually attacking those issues in the conscious mind where resistance will be mounted by default. The conscious mind is the software, the ego and perspectives are the apps, and the subconscious mind is the mainframe where the coding and hardware exits. The extraordinary power exists in everyone to command it’s benefits. Those who are able to access this power on demand,  discover an amazing ability to develop willpower, discipline, and successes.

Consider how anger, desperation, ignoring pain, or dire circumstances produce some of your best efforts because they take the thought or conscious mind out of the equation which removes the limitations for the subconscious mind to achieve. The subconscious mind serves at your discretion like a machine to do what it is told making the key to its effectiveness removing the limitations that are coded there. The process is reprogramming it with affirmations, positive instructions, and removing self-limiting negative programming.

Education-The price of not knowing.




I wholeheartedly believe that the greatest gift someone can give you is knowledge. The more quality and comprehensive the knowledge the more valuable to be utilized, pursued, or possessed. Knowledge is the game-changer that launches better opportunities in life and the expectation that some specific comprehensions and reasonings are elevated to accomplish more in life in accordance with that Knowledge. With that said, what is the substance, and what determines the ideology or method of delivery of Education and not knowledge? How do we determine what is really taught along with how and why?

First, let us examine the primary stated definition of and purpose for education to better frame what we have been conditionally exposed to with the currently accepted educational system and criteria of educational standards. Education is defined as the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits according to Wikipedia’s definition. Horace Mann the former Massachusetts Secretary of Education is primarily regarded as the father of education in the United States who initiated a system of professional teachers to teach an organized curriculum of basic content. A basic level of literacy and inculcation of common public ideas and beliefs that are deemed standard was the goal. In other words, to develop the mind with a specific intent to meet the standards set forth. Education originally was for boys and with bible study to tame their spirits.

Etymology is the study of words as they have changed over time with a primary focus on their roots or origin as they were derived from words that convey their true initial meaning. The etymology of education is Educare which can be translated to bring up or raise as well as in animals it refers to training them. The etymology of inculcation which can further be broken down but essentially means to “force upon, insist, stamp in, impress, tread down, trample on, tread on, or heel”.

Inculcation is achieved by the method of persistent and repeated information to implant, instill, or even admonish or punish if needed in order to force upon any ideas, theories, or behavior for indoctrination to acceptance of it. To further this intent homework was initially given as a punishment to break resistance to learning acceptance and not to enhance learning. Then you can be assessed or “graded” to measure your predictability to assimilate to norms and meet required standards. Consider the source words and stated intent compare to the stated definition of brainwash which is defined as to make someone adopt radically different beliefs by using systematic and often forcible pressure. It is the human mind being altered or controlled by certain psychological techniques. Let us not forget that corporal punishment in the form of paddling or swats was encouraged for compliance as well.

The use of developmental psychology at the earliest of ages increases the efficiency and acceptance of this intent and influence. It would be fair to say that this initiation takes place at the earliest age for maximum impact and efficiency. This method of educational conditioning is passed down from generation to generation influencing the surrendered blank slate (you) for inscription according to the prevailing thoughts and conditions at the time chosen to be tolerated and conformed to. It becomes traditionally accepted control and training which bends someone’s independence to a desired group’s agenda, determination, and many times personal opinions which are being imposed.

A good percentage of a youth’s time is spent not under the direct line of sight or teachings of their parents but being entrusted to a societal design that appoints a surrogate who is directly or indirectly forming a child’s reality and capabilities under the trust that you invested in them. This trust is then by virtue transferred to the child and reinforced by siblings, peers, status, and society. To further that educational goal social norms as cultural learnings are taught through structural socialization and allegiances. An ideology of a perceived consensus that is not self- determined but assigned primarily through opportunities presented or opportunities denied. The reasoning and judgment associated with this thought pattern are to create a root default behavior creating the assigned programed perspective of achievement or limitations. Well, maybe your limitations are greatly influenced outside yourself and predetermined by these outer influences by design. Maybe, I’m just putting it on the table.

You to some degree become what you hear repeatedly and sometimes the loudest from some of the early ages while your highly impressionable before things really form. That is why it is better to place it there as opposed to removing something however embedded. Instead of replacing it with yours, just placing it there first is the objective. The age of initiation gets younger as time passes and starts now from daycare, preschool, and kindergarten. Education in part began as a social experiment and on some not so coincidental levels the belief that education is meant to be a regimen of focused processes that implant the expectations of an established social standard, a perspective. Excelling at achieving distinguished personal absorption of that social standard is the method of measurement within the educational/social structure which is achievement and accumulation based.







Standardized testing was not designed to include but to discourage and exclude in theory. Training or conditioning people for continuity of compliance despite the core acceptance in their mind. That creates that learned tradition seemingly forever adhered to and defended instead of serious re-examination and adaptation, even overhaul periodically. Standardizing creates the standard that restricts you from consideration or participation for the less knowledgeable and most disadvantaged. This assures the efficiency of the social structure and the manual or menial task supply and demand.

The swindle of opportunities missed is unknown but if standardized testing is the tide that raises all boats then surely the criteria and historical accuracy of the teachings of education should yield the benefits that reflect this. The educational teachings often contradict historical accuracy and are suspect. The focus on these inaccuracies are distractions from the much-needed practical exposure to knowledge of post-schooling preparedness, acquisition of knowledge should not be secondary. The criteria should reflect preparedness for decisions regarding things that are generally learned later in life after making some mistakes of not knowing. The tools to sustain you in life. Investments, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, etc. to more closely reflect their importance in life.

If you have 12 years of seven or eight hours a day, the time available and resources devoted should reflect a more knowledgeable labor force according to the origins of what the educational system represents itself to be. So you see knowledge apparently is not the priority but conformity to even undesirable standards and enough “educational” training to create a functional labor force but not a knowledgeable labor force. The poverty of opportunity is assured with your consent to lack of knowledge and the “educational” breeding. Schooling plants the seeds to become a producer or a consumer, labor, or management remembering that it takes more laborers than managers.

The diminishing returns resolution lies in the overall structure, content, and criteria that should be analyzed and modernized. A pause and shift have occurred where the unheard of has happened and now would be an opportune time to weigh the balances of sticking with the current system of education after evaluating your observations of its effectiveness and results. The harsh reality is there for all to see by the way the lowest-paid worker just so happens to be the most essential worker and especially at this heightened time of danger. Powerless against the decisions that are made that affect you and in jeopardy of being penalized for any resistance. The current situation really exposes many societal acceptances that now cannot be hidden behind the commonly accepted purposes and intent given, even extending up to the collegiate educational level and college athletics. Those needed for labor are conditioned to offers no resistance, are often knowledge deficient, and without pull or support often rewarded by some Pavlov incentive or dependency filled is what the educational system is structured to produce in order to promote societal perspectives that invite exploitation.

Moral of the story < Knowledge and education are not interchangeable and are with quite different meanings and implications. Knowledge expands your known possibilities and wisdom while education is a measure of your level of absorption and compliance. The freedom of choice and randomness of fate are an illusion when the choices and opportunities have already been chosen for you to select from. The choices are limited and controlled but there is a choice.

So now we can rethink the educational system based on real purpose, player hating discouragement, or we can at least volunteer instead of being tricked. Step right up, next in line. Expecting a different outcome may be unrealistic so it is important to play them while they are playing you and maximize your knowledge to increase your ability to recognize, create, or benefit from an opportunity. Opportunity depends on awareness, awareness is based on knowledge, and knowledge brings wisdom. Basically, you pay for what you don’t know and put yourself at the mercy of predators and that is the price of not knowing. Many things may attempt to stop you, but do not let lack of knowledge in not knowing if be one.
