A Heartfelt Resolution for 2020

 

 

 

I came across this New Year’s resolution for 2020 on the TimelessToday website, and I thought it expressed a wonderful wish. Not something unrealistic but practical. Not something that benefits one group of people over another, but that benefits everyone, even those people not yet born.

Best wishes to you all

On the positive side, the year “2020” looks cool and is easy to type on a keyboard.

New Year’s Greetings

“There is never a stop to the sunrise. Sunrise happens all day long. Somewhere on this earth the sun is rising. Somewhere on this earth the sun is setting. That was just where YOU were. It never stops. It keeps happening all day long. And what is your night, somewhere is daylight.”

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.
