A personal message about the Biblical and Economics Blog

I am changing the secular posts that I make to the Biblical Truths and Economics blog.https://jrichardduke.com/

I will continue to make posts regarding the Bible, and especially the Kingdom of God (the gospel of the Kingdom—Jesus inside us–Colossians 1:26-27, for example), as in the past.

My secular posts will be primarily to teach, not give you news.  I am making this change because I do not know what news is truthful, except I know, for sure, that the mainstream media consists of lies and deceits.  For example, under the Freedom of Information Act, we know that under Operation Mockingbird the CIA admitted to Congress (1960s) that it controlled the news media.  And the mind control under Project MKUltra [Jason Bourne series showed the public]. There is much, much more I have learned from reading original documents and Congressional hearings and British Parliament hearings, etc. that show that what we were taught and continue to be taught are simply untrue.

So, current events will not be posted unless I believe with all due diligence that reports are accurate (difficult to confirm without seeing original documents, recordings, etc.)

I personally am horrified at the brainwashing that I have been under and continue to be under.  I am horrified to know that the history I was taught was not correct—to say the least—and to learn that the deep state is behind everything (but the deep state is not always successful in its sickness and control).  (The only alternative is to know that God is true and never, ever changing—and in control.)

Austrian economic teachings and other teachings will be the focal point for secular posts.  I want to reduce reference to  man’s opinions and provide facts, as much as possible (relating to current events and statements about the “possible” future).  I will include interviews at times where an individual is being asked questions (but not giving his opinions about what “may” happen in the future.  (Austrian economics does not teach what “may” happen.)

Lesson no. 1 (as an example):  Valuation is personal, internal and within you.  Objects out there that you see cannot be valued.  Value is subjective to each person.  And it is VERY, VERY wrong when the Keynesians try to measure value (when value is internal to each person) and try to make you believe their very deceitful mathematical numbers.  (This also follows the Bible:  2 Corinthians 4:18: While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal; Colossians 1:26-27: Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory [THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS INSIDE US, NOT OUT THERE.)

A simple example:  A building was for sale at the price of $1 million.  Because the seller was unsuccessful in selling the building and requires immediate cash, he reduces the price of the building to $600,000.  Let’s look at the internal valuations of three people (as an example).

Person no. 1–has few assets or currency.  Thus the building has no value to him.

Person no. 2–is a wealthy person but has no experience with real estate and does not want to get involved.  Thus the building has no value to him.

Person no. 3–is wealthy and his expertise is real estate.  This building has great value to him because most likely he would pay more than $600,000.

The Keynesians with their mathematical formulas give the “average” value of the building, which shows nothing except one thing:  we are treated as unthinking cattle.
