Recommended reading

This is a list of recommended reading, books and articles that I have found helpful in teaching me to think more clearly and understand cause and effect.

First, some links to articles I used in the presentation on Feb. 25th, 2017.

  1. Swine Flu:Swine_Flu_by_Rappoport_bitly_links.pdf
  2. MishTalk: 60,000 visas unbanned. Trump acted foolishly, irreponsibly, and likely illegally.
  3. Logical fallacies listed and explained in Japanese: Avoid and Name That Fallacy! 誤謬を見抜け!誤謬を避けよ!
  4. Next FAME (March 25th) we will
    1. finish discussing “Logic & Rhetoric”, including answering the question, how to persuade Westerners to follow Japanese “rules”.
    2. discuss if members wish to take a short course in logical analysis,
    3. read the first chapter of the shortest economics textbook in the world: “Economics in One Lesson” by Henry Hazlitt. (The whole book and a good Japanese translation are available on Amazon, see below). Click here to download chapter 1:Henry-Hazlitt-Economics-in-One-Lesson_ch1

And here are the books listed in the Feb. 25th handout. I have added links to the Japanese translations where available. I’m selling some of these books.

Quote of the week

Check zerohedge, they have an article about how the NGOs are bringing in the migrants from N Africa. Includes names of ships. It may be inferred that countries are becoming irrelevant and politics are a stage game.

The Zerohedge article referred to: Something Strange is Happening in the Mediterranean

Song for the week, and for a lifetime

“When you see another human being, what do you see?”
A fat person? A stupid person? A white person? A black person? A green person? A man? A woman? An old person? A young person?
Or do you see a human being?
Do we even know what a human being really is?
Do your eyes see? Is your heart open?

Quote of the day

At my age, I can gauge my life expectancy by the number of Presidential elections ahead of me. How many more of these must I endure after this one? I figure three. I might get four. This is a depressing way to measure your time remaining. But it does make an actuarially premature death look more appealing.

Quote of the day

For the Empire, it is, as Elvis sang, “now or never.” Lenin spoke of “useful idiots.” Ours aren’t even useful, but they call the shots.

Quote of the day

“Tragically, our nation has now, for the second time in a few years, seen a president afflicted with Alzheimer’s. Bill Clinton’s fabled memory has broken down. During his August 17, 1998 grand jury testimony, it failed him dozens of times.  It’s a shame, because he really needs his memory now. He’s been the victim of so many lying and designing women: Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, Linda Tripp, and Monica Lewinsky. He has disputed their accounts of his behavior with as much vigor as a memory-impaired person can, but it’s tough. On the other hand, one advantage of having Alzheimer’s is that you keep meeting new women.”
