Is it wise to understand how politicians use tribal fear as weapons for their own agenda?

In the previous post I stated I will explore the wisdom of fear as it relates to the subject of politics of fear in the USA.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to understand the wisdom of fear in relation to how and when political demagogues manage to get hold of our fear circuitry, we often regress to illogical, tribal and aggressive human animals, becoming weapons ourselves – weapons that politicians use for their own agenda.

This post will use the current fearmongering on China tariffs as an example of what could possibly repeat the same circumstances of Franklin D. Roosevelt speech, that “we have nothing to fear but fear itself,”

King Solomon

“Meaningless! Meaningless!”
    says the Teacher.
“Utterly meaningless!
    Everything is meaningless.”

 What do people gain from all their labors
    at which they toil under the sun? (Ecclesiastes 1:2-3)

What Ares My Two Points?

  1. We as a Nation need ti understood that we could live without the majority of products made in China.
  2. China decided not to agree to balance trade or pay for intellectual property rights because they want Trump to lose the 2020 election

China understands the wisdom of fear on USA consumers. They also know that USA politicians do not consider long range economics same as they do.

In a previous post, I explained how the majority of products imported from China are electronics, toys, and clothing, the majority are non-essential items we can live without or manufacture in the USA.

In My Opinion

The fear being spread in the news and politicians about how loss of China products will create an economic depression is the same fear that Franklin D. Roosevelt faced when he took office.

The benefits that the USA will gain by renegotiating to balance trade are enormous for our citizens and nation.

For example, when China supplys the majority of clothing to the USA as anyone knows who check the labels in any store, what happened is the USA mills no longer supply the textile products to the clothing manufacturers.

This same chains apply to every manufactured product, send the manufacturing of any widget out and the local suppliers around the manufacture also close down and jobs are eliminated not only for the workers in the plant making the product, but the accountants, the customer service employees all lose the stores and restaurants around the plants, etc. all are affected.

In other words, not only are Trump’s political opponents stroking fear to obtain power by him losing the next elections, so is China.

I will I will explore the wisdom of fear as it relates to the subject of the stock market.

You Decide

Will you or your children survive this Christmas without a new electronic device or toy not being under your Christmas which King Solomon would consider “Utterly Meaningless!” when compared to their future and the future of our Nation.

Will obtaining fair trade benefit the USA more in the future if it creates more jobs so people can pay taxes instead of being subsidized because the pay to stock shelves at Wal Mart is not the same as learning a manufacturing skill.

Are politicians stroking tribal fears to obtain power for themselves, or the future of Nation or the laws of our Nation?

Which wisdom of fear would benefit the USA future more when we listen to politicians and news, unity to “advance” as a nation, or fear to “retreat” as a Nation, as stated by President F. D. Roosevelt.

Regards and good will blogging.
