“Popular” Won’t Make You Happy or Rich

George Orwell wrote, all those years ago, “In times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” Today, that is more true than ever before. And Hollywood and the ruling powers in many countries are making sure that the truth is ostracized and belittled.

If you’re catering to the mindless masses of robots, to the simpering sycophants who believe that they will be successful if everyone likes them, you’re going to end up just like them – drowning in debt with families ripped apart and no values or class left. That is what being “politically correct” means. See video below.

Just observe how young girls and women are treated when they save their virginity for marriage, or even insist on marriage instead of shacking up with someone who doesn’t love them enough to marry them. Notice how “unpopular” and “racist” it is to point out anything amiss in anyone who isn’t white; the whites are fair game, though. Why is this?

Argue that raising the minimum wage won’t help anyone in the medium or long term or that marijuana is bad for people, and you’re a pariah. This is all predicted clearly in Orwell’s wonderful book, “1984” and, in fact, in the Bible. If you want to see how business owners and Capitalists will be attacked and broken down, simply read Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged.”

Happy people live according to solid values. They are not swayed by the attacks on marriage, decency, heterosexual relationships, or money – they put their heads down and work on building lives of integrity and honesty. And they get rich doing so. Whom, after all, would you trust? Someone who is a slimy servant to the status quo, or someone who stands up for their values and standards? Who would you buy from – someone who twists the truth so as not to “offend” anyone, or someone who tells the truth?

Men, who would you rather marry? Some tart who has slept with hundreds of men, smoked thousands of cigarettes, covered her body in tattoos, cusses like a sailor, dresses like a street woman and has fallen down drunk or drugged more times than she can remember, or a pure woman who respects her body and has set high standards on what she will and will not do?

Work hard, hold to your standards, stand up for what you believe in, mix with people who share your values. You will be viciously attacked, laughed at, jeered at, belittled, and envied by those who wish they had the guts to be like you. And you will be happy, at peace, and get rich, in many, many ways. And it’s never too late to forgive and to be forgiven. It’s never too late to start over., to reassess, to change your mind and your ways. The return on investment is great.

When people read this article, some with “Unfriend” me, say nasty things because they see themselves in this mirror, unsubscribe from my newsletters, and so on. That’s OK – I’m used to it. I reserve the right to say what I think. Others – a small percentage – will agree with me, perhaps not on everything, and that’s fine, but in general and in principle, and those are the people I wish to do business with and associate with. If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything. Hold to the iron rod – choose the right.
