A recent magazine article suggests we should forgive ourselves for what was said while we were “in the dark” about the Chinese Origin Viral Infectious Disease. Okay, go ahead. But there was no reason for anyone to be in the dark about the bug.
News reports told us crazy things. The World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control warned us government was on the wrong track. The first thing that they said was it had a 90% mortality. Then Fauci said we didn’t need masks, and there was no need to get all shook up.
Mitch Daniels, President of Purdue University, coined the term “the mad pursuit of perfection” in his commencement address last year. Paul Gleiser of radio station KTBB in Tyler, used the term in his weekly You Tell Me, Texas newsletter. He referred to the way our government handled the pandemic crisis and the many things that continue to harm children. Saying:“As that tally progresses, another ‘mad pursuit of zero’ is underway. This time it’s the mad pursuit of another ‘emissions energy policy.’”
It takes a special kind of confused, self-centered, adolescent thinking to believe that humans can, and without previous experience, create excellence.
Most of us know there is nothing to prove any of it is real. They just have a group of experts who can, and in only their minds, think it into reality. No cause-and-effect proof, only conjecture made up of theory, and an idea that fits their goal. But they will not examine their argument, because they are making money and gaining power by misrepresentation.
It is a policy that eliminates the dependable things we do to keep cool or warm, move about quickly, and light our homes and factories. That means, to eliminate them based upon a plan of pure conjecture and consensus proof. Nothing real or measurable. With only the power of their minds, they have made it so. And they have a plan, based on conjecture. What they really expect to create is a compliant population without the power they are given in the Constitution.
Now the current administration thinks there is a way to shelter the earth from the sun’s rays.
And there it is, the Adult Arrested Adolescent (TriA) approach to things which they claim are not fair or equal. They demand that you and I must carry equality and fairness out to the last decimal place. They are, like a child whose peas cannot touch their carrots, and who manipulates their parents into fixing it. Otherwise, they will tantrum, and refuse to eat anything on their plate.
Of course, they have picked two things than cannot be measured. Fairness and Equality as they want it cannot exist. We, as a culture, would not entertain that idea if the progressive ideas of our schools were not creating it in TriA minds. These are policies fed them by school unions.
Gleiser’s message reminds us of the many countdowns that warned of thawed ice caps, then swollen shores, and then blistering droughts that never happened. That is, they never happened other than in the normal ebb and flow of weather.
That’s what the child-mind cannot tolerate. The ebb and flow of life. Every day must be lived according to their say-so. Every grand scheme will work, unless the kid they dislike imagines it, then the kid with glasses and a lisp broke it, ruined things. They can clearly see the glasses and hear the lisp by redefining what amounts to lisp and glasses–just make it so. You can’t, you aren’t their kind of special.
That is government policy making and policy today in mind of the Adult’s Arrested Adolescents who labor daily in policy centers funded by billionaires and big business, and that is conflict of interest. Their mission is to tell the world, they have made it so. Conjured in their minds, things far superior to those long-term practical experiences that have proven to work. The rest of the world, nods like a doting parent and thinks, the king has no clothes.
“Make it so.” Is a line from an old Star Trek re-run. It’s not a good government policy.

One of the efforts to change modern schools that have shown some success are the charter schools. Some of them have been extraordinarily successful while others have closed for various and not consistent reasons.
Harvard Education magazine published an article in 2017 that describes the origin of charter schools as a locally controlled, small system that matches community needs to the education children received.
The hobgoblin in this story is the National Education Agency. Since the 1940’s the NEA has been the richest union in the country and has followed Wundtian policies to place political activists in something like 4000 politically active campaigns or in local congressional districts around the United States.
Like Wundt, they use their own sources to create “experts” who will legitimize their greatness and ability by holding workshops that give continuing education credit and even graduate school credits to those that attend.
As the probable cause report on Adult Arrested Adolescent gets closer to its end, schools must be the last and most sensitive area of concern.
It is because nice people and dupes have allowed the National Education Agency, which is not national, not education, and not as the word seems to imply, part of our government — to function as if it were.
In the last post, the discussion was about Hoffer and Adult Arrested Adolescence. If we are going to examine the theory of the Tri-A maybe describing adolescence would be good.
To review, the thesis is that certain adults keep adolescent characteristics well into adulthood, partially out of habit but also because as their brains develop, they get “stuck” in adolescence. My first question was, “If they fail to break out of an adolescent thought structure do their brains fully develop?” Observation seems to show they do not.
Human beings must be socialized inside of a family structure. Almost every culture on the planet would agree wholly or in large part to that statement. That is the training for being able to live with others. Animals are instinctual, they have DNA sequences that control what they will become – usually some kind of killer. Even a hungry baby chick can hunt a bug down and kill it, and eat it. To the bug, the chick is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
This week, we relaunched the websites and blog posts based on my book, Looking Backward, Forward. It is about the current climate of overreaching government control and congressional behavior that has characterized much of the 21st century. In it, I discuss a behavioral disorder called Adult Arrested Adolescence (TriA) that many people have developed.
The book upon which this blog series is based, Looking Backward, Forward is about government control and pugnacious congressional behavior in the 21st Century. That relates to the Adult Arrested Adolescent or TriA that has become a crisis for the future of the USA.
The TriA is a behavioral disorder that describes how some people in the United States and other countries think. And they think poorly if at all because they have been taught to think with feelings or emotions. That is first-tier thinking, where first impressions, happy thoughts, and colorful images delight the senses. It is not a deeper second-tier analysis that helps us evaluate the worth of ideas, people, and their schemes.
There is a moving song about indecision called loving arms. Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge made it a hit in 1973, and more recently a girl group with their own indecision recorded it in 2015. The 1973 version made the song a memory for many people. The final chorus, after describing the mistake of leaving a loved one, believing the freedom to roam would be better got my attention the first time I heard it.
“Looking back and longing for the freedom of my chains, lying in your loving arms again.”
By 1973 I had both a strong Biblical training and had begun to finish, and pay for, the last of my classes in college, by pursuing a career in law enforcement. One of the things I learned was about liberty. From the Judeo-Christian model, we learned that liberty has constraints.
