Life Reset Button & the Future

"Have you turned it off and on again?" -- Roy, 'The IT Crowd' I did not know that life had a reset button but now I can tell you that God is the one who gets to push it. My life changed one night when that button was pushed. Before that moment, I was an author, […]

Revelatory about the day and Britain's future

This book not only cleared up much mystery for me surrounding Diana's passing but about Prince Charles and his complicated, broken soul.

“I will do this. Nothing in my life matters except this. No moment of my life exists except this moment. I am born in this moment, and if I fail, I will die in this moment.”
Tracy Hickman

“What words are in you that can change the world?”
Tracy Hickman

“[P]eople only make decisions based on what they know. You can have everyone in the country vote freely and democratically and still come up with the wrong answer - if the information they base that decision on is wrong.

People don't want the truth [when] it is complicated. They don't want to spend years debating an issue. They want it homogenized, sanitized, and above all, simplified into terms they can understand...Governments are often criticized for moving slowly, but that deliberateness, it turns out, is their strength. They take time to think through complex problems before they act. People, however, are different. People react first from the gut and then from the head...give that knee-jerk reflex real power to make its overwhelming will known as a national mandate instantly and you can cause a political riot.

Combine these sins - simplification of information and instant, visceral democratic mandates - and you lose the ability to cool down. There is no longer deliberation time between events that may or may not be true and our reaction to them. Policy becomes instinct rather than thought.”
Tracy Hickman, The Immortals
