The Market Pros Pay Money For Nothing!

 

Some things are so stupid that you are left speechless.

For many years the Wall Street Journal has reported, one after another, scientific studies that show that the advice of highly-paid market analysts is utterly useless. The funniest ones are studies that have monkeys tossing darts at the stock list and six months later comparing how well the stocks the monkeys picked did compared to those selected by market analysts who take in staggering salaries.

The results are ALWAYS dead even.

Which would be hilarious if somebody actually caught on to what was going on. But in New York they keep PAYING those analysts.

In New York "Modern Artists" have been cracking commodes or welding together tin cans and getting a hundred thousand dollars for it. This has been going on for at least sixty years.

But people buy the stuff and sell it. And everybody has thought that surely someday somebody in New York would catch on.

But the art experts keep raving over a painting of Christ in urine (NOT Moses in urine!). The cracked commodes keep selling and the art experts write treatises on them.

How can one even comment on this?

 

Primitive Medicine And Primitive Social Science

 

"Experts" is the title of today's internet radio show at:

THE UNTRAINED EYE

As I point out in my latest book, which you can find at READBOB.COM social scientists admit their fields are primitive compared to the hard sciences. But historians who are part of those social science departments never notice the most consistent facts in intellectual history:

Primitive sciences are always silly.

APPLIED primitive sciences are always not only silly, but their ideas cause disaster.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

But when the person with that little knowledge thinks he is an expert and everybody else thinks he's an expert, that is a formula for disaster.

Medical history before the middle of the nineteenth century is one long horror.

As I explain on the program and in much, much more detail in my book, the bigger the title a medical expert had, the more horrible his advice was.

In December of 1799, when George Washington came down with pneumonia his doctors literally bled him to death.

As with the New York stock market analysis, nobody pays any attention to what works.

But people assume that someone sitting in a mahogany office in a New York skyscraper, in a huge corner office with a view, must know what he is doing.

For well over a thousand years, nobody questioned that Medical Authorities, with doctorates and a thorough knowledge of both Latin and Greek, knew what they were doing.

Social science is primitive. The diversity they preach IS insane. The rehabilitation they preach IS insane.

And the entire intellectual history of the last two thousand years tells us not only why it is insane, but that this insanity was inevitable.

People assume that somebody who sits in a university with the title "Professor" must know what he is doing, just as they assume that somebody sitting in a huge corner office with a view of Wall Street must know what he is doing. They took it for granted for over a thousand years that somebody with a big name who was a University Doctor and Professor of Medicine knew what he was doing.

Millions of people died operating under the latter assumption, including the Father of Our Country and millions of newborn children and their mothers.

 

Dying For The Experts

 

And we are dying for our assumptions today. Thousands of people will be killed on the streets of America this year because the Professors of Criminology insist that career felons are victims of society and need to be rehabilitated out in society, not imprisoned for life.

Diversity kills us wholesale. Prisons are full of illegal aliens, and every one of them has caused grievous harm to Americans. But if you want to be a respectable conservative, you have to praise Diversity and The Melting Pot and the phrase "a nation of immigrants."

All of this is simply the result of the fact that we dare not call our so-called "intellectuals" a bunch of damned fools.

As I talked about last week on my radio show, which you can listen to any time from the archive at THE UNTRAINED EYE everybody thinks we OWE the world the right to immigrate into the United States.

All the professors and respectable conservatives say so.

That program is about the Preamble to the United States Constitution. The Constitution says very specifically that our only purpose is "We the people of the United States ... and OUR posterity."

The Constitution did NOT set up a "nation of immigrants." Just the opposite. Like everything else, they expected the people of the United States to decide on immigration on the basis of whether those immigrants will be good for US and OUR posterity. Nobody has the slightest claim on the United States but our own citizens.

The generation of Americans who adopted the Constitution had the largest percentage of native-born Americans of any generation before or since.

 

Our So-Called "Intellectuals" Are Nuts And We Obey Them

 

Yet our so-called "liberal intellectuals" with their obedient little respectable conservatives in tow, insist that, 1) We are a "nation of immigrants" and we OWE third worlders the right to come here, and 2) the principle on which America was founded is The Melting Pot and we need lots of non-white immigrants here to increase Holy Diversity.

And nobody QUESTIONS that!
