The mythology says there's a free hand of benevolence calming or cajoling the marketplace. But it seems that's mostly dogma. Economics is a theology, guided by whatever belief structure is in vogue in the brokers of power of the moment. And for most of recorded history, those powerful have not been our friends.
Today on Thinking with Somebody Else's Head, The Economy of Destruction.
This is a topic that's close to my heart, and what first got me resonating with the philosophy of Dr. Norberto Keppe. His book, Liberation of the People: The Pathology of Power, opened my eyes wide to the pathology behind the power structures, and changed forever how I saw the world. The idea that we could analyze society through a psychological lens was totally refreshing to me. And it helped calm a deep anguish I'd had because I could see the distorted social structure we were living in, but couldn't explain how it had gotten that way and how, after every election, everything continued pretty much as it had before.
Keppe's book, by the way, is still available to you. Just contact me at email@example.com for information on how you can get your copy.
Well, that's something about Keppe's work on psycho-socio-pathology, but he's also put forward remarkable new ideas in science, too. His book, The New Physics, re-defines the laws of physics and energy and even genetics. Dramatically. Actually there's a big demonstration of this in a practical way in a new motor that's been created based on his work. A free energy motor that works on Keppe's disinversion of a basic scientific tenet that energy comes from matter. It doesn't. It comes from the essential energy field of the univers that is manifested into two forms - secondary energy, or electro-magnetic energy, the energy of Einstein's theory - and matter. Well, this'll become clear on our site. Check it out at www.stop.org.br. Just click on the English version of the site and it'll be right there.
We'll also be exploring Keppe's work in great detail at our World Conference of Analytical Trilogy coming up in San Diego in September 2008. Find more information about that at www.wcatus.org
Today, economist Eduardo Nascimento joins me to look at Keppe's revolutionary ideas in economics. Strap yourself in, and enjoy the ride.
