LOGICAL MINDS ONLY

LOGICAL MINDS ONLY

By Robert Burk
Logic is not opinion nor is it moved by assumptions. Logic follows its own course and rules. Logic cannot be rescinded, reconfigured or reformed. Logic is implacable and absolute. LOGICAL MINDS ONLY follow logic to where it leads. Those who do not follow logic to wherever it leads end up in a place that is demonstrably irrational. LOGICAL MINDS ONLY is a podcast for those whose commitment to logic is absolute. Those whose commitment is to an ideology, or particular worldview, or set of assumptions or who want to find factoids to support an assumption are wasting their time here.

We Need Justice Not Freedom
Liberalism promotes freedom. Liberals do not explain what they want to be free from. Freedom for a liberal is like a get out of jail free card, a carte blanche permission slip that permits anything. What they do not say and most do not know is that the freedom they long for is freedom from justice. Yet, without justice we have nothing of our own and no future.

The Logic Of Money
Money is a measuring tool, or a unit of account. Currency is used as money and often thought synonymous with money but currency is an asset used to facilitate exchanges. The problem with currency is that assets are owned. To use the domestic currency the customer has to buy or rent units. This is akin to having to pay for inches to measure a box, or pay for miles to go on a journey. The Logic Of Money explains how to operate an economy using money, that is units of account that have no cost and are created by the person adding value to the economy. A market that uses money has no inflation, no debt, and no unemployment or taxation. Learn how it is done because Logical Minds Only know how to create real money and eliminate the private currency markets.

The Logical Identity Of Man
Men are best on all sides by those who not only claim the identity of men is a social construct but a bad and unwelcome social construct at that. This podcast sets out to demonstrate being a man is a logical necessity for men. To be otherwise is to be irrational and to set oneself up for failure. If a silk purse cannot be made from a sow’s ear then surely a girl cannot be made from a man, or vice versa. What we need to ask is what are the social costs of rejecting fundamental, logical truth.

How Main Street Could Rebuild Main Street Post Covid-19
In many ways the call to get the economy back to normal, is misplaced. Normal was never that good. The fact that governments are having to create a dozen different programs to deal with a multiplicity of impacts demonstrates how granular the normal economy was. Too many had nothing and others so little they will not likely survive the downturn despite the help. Even with the help the future costs of this help are going to create death by a thousand cuts in place of what would otherwise have been a speedy demise. If we learn anything from this let us learn that if main street wants to survive it needs to develop main street, based solutions. Globalism and statism only add to the problems local economies face. In this podcast LOGICAL MINDS ONLY looks at a new way to create economic development, without use of the financial or public sector.

Why The Church Is Able To Resolve The U.S. Health Care Crises
Health Care has been a problem without a resolution due to the politics associated with the two main options. The United States is no longer looking for a solution to the issue of health care, it has reverted to a country trying to find a way to get past the barriers erected by the opposing political party to the solution supported by the party in government. Unfortunately, the solution appears to have come down to finding better ways to get around this opposition. It is as if the credibility of the party hinges on getting their own particular solution enacted in a form that proves the other parties’ suggestions were just politically motivated. The truth is, the attachment of the parties to their version of what health care looks like proves both programs are more political than remedial. The resolution to this deadlock is not a cleverer presentation. We need a new delivery vehicle. Private enterprise and the public purse are both failed paradigms. Discover the Christian option to the provision of health care.

How The Church Can Destroy Liberalism
Liberalism is a synonym for evil and evil the creation of costs one does not pay. The church destroys liberalism because it is not compatible with liberalism because Christians are instructed to live lives in a way that prevents freeloading. Simply by existing the church eliminates liberalism. If you see liberalism or are being infected by it you are not building the church. You want to rid the world of liberalism start living as instructed to live by God. Its that simple.

How Evil Thinks
To understand reality and the problems of man we need to understand how people think. To understand evil, we need to understand the Alpha mind. Alpha is not a persona or personality type; it is a specific way of thinking and dealing with issues that produces outcomes we do not think are good. Once adopted the way we think dictates how we will act and solve problems. If we do not understand how people think we cannot grasp what leads to the decisions made. War and crime and political conflicts of all kinds disrupt society. These are not natural events they are events produced by human reasoning. To know how to end these kinds of events we must understand the thinking that thinks these events ought to exist. They serve a purpose for some people.  What this podcast tells us is that there is not just a generic kind of thinking and problem solving, there are two specific modes of thinking leading to two unique ways of dealing with problems. These two modes of thought create two totally separate realities each model of reality looks at problems in a specific way, from a specific angle. Each mode of thought means problems will be solved or not from one particular perspective. A whole range of possible solutions are rejected by each group because these solutions do not fit in with how they think about reality.

Satanic Logic
Christians and atheists do not think alike. Their realities are not compatible. The claim God Exists and the assertion His existence is not compatible with the materialist worldview, are mutually exclusive world views. Only one position can be logical. If there is no evidence for God, He cannot exist. It is illogical to suggest God is the Creator and yet there is no evidence. But it is just as illogical to claim the universe is composed of matter, energy, space and time but being unable to explain what these things are or how they came into existence. Only one position can make sense. The question is not which position is true, but which truth is logical. There are two types of truth, synthetic truth and analytical truth. Those who subscribe to the synthetic form of truth think the way the devil does and this can be proved logically. Only those who accept the existence of God are able to think logically, because logic is linked to the form of truth, we call analytical. Analytical truth is the truth written in our hearts and is the truth that leads to God. These truths cannot be logically refuted. Logical truths are true by necessity.

The Populist Revolt
Populism has steadily gained ground against the parties of the left and even when compared to conventional parties on the Right. Populism is not about mobs or middle-class opinions. Nor is Populism about traditional conservative values. Populism has become a reaction both the to the attacks of the left on property ownership and the failure of the Right to remain committed to the protection of property rights. Capitalism and conservative parties have abandoned the central concern of the majority of people. As a consequence, property rights have been steadily eroded. Not only the property rights of individual owners, but also the rights of the public to their lands and political jurisdictions. Populism is a reaction to the disempowerment that is part and parcel of the Globalist agenda. In this podcast we not only look at the reaction of those in the Populist movement to the loss of property rights but at ways to turn back this tide and reclaim the property rights that are part of our legacy of human rights.

Why I Do Not Accept The Claims Of Atheists - Ever, About Anything
Atheists claim they are only rejecting statements made about God. The seemingly innocuous position hides a secret. Without this right to refuse to discuss God, they risk the destruction of their entire worldview. To discuss the issue of God's Existence, is to question the basis of their rejection of God. The rejection of God is not causal, it is reactive, it is the consequence of a deep-seated irrationality that leads to an inability to accept God. If you understand the irrationality, the inherent illogicalness of atheism, you will understand why they cannot accept God and why they ought never to believed about anything, ever.

What Is The Church
The church is not people in pews nor buildings whether ornate basilicas or structures less imposing. We know that, but are we aware it was not designed as a club nor to express cultural preferences? There is no reason to assume God hoped it would form a kind of spiritual gathering place. As Christians we were never meant to be united by shared statements of faith. Indeed, there is good reason to ask why creeds and doctrines are needed if the church reflected the design provided in the New Testament. Are we using human devised documents to protect our human fabrication from competing marketing ploys? What does, one body under Christ, mean to you? It does not sound as if it as meant to be complicated or divisive. So why the division? What really is the church? Find out now before you find out you were part of something else.

The Logic Of Logical Populism
The world cannot make sense to us unless the world is logical. If the world is logical it can be understood logically by us. If we can understand reality as a logical construct what is reality composed of but truth. Logical Populism is a logical look at reality. Logical Populism is founded on a logical understanding of truth. If you are not logical this is probably not an episode that will speak to you.

Logic Ends Pollution And Repairs The Planet
Pollution is a man-made additive to the natural world that adds expenses to those who would use the world's natural resources. Pollution adds costs to the marketplace, this is why it is a problem. It is absurd to create costs over and above what is required to produce what we want produced. No one actually wants pollution created because it always increases the cost of the things we do want. So, why is pollution created? The answer is in our bizarre way of producing goods and services. If we produced what we do want in a logical way we would not produce what we do not want, namely pollution. In this episode of LOGICAL MINDS ONLY, we look at how to produce goods and services logically. Logical activity does not produce pollution and it encourages the clean up of existing pollution. Discover a more logical way to live before the window of opportunity closes.

How To End Unemployment (For Good)
Contrary to what some experts appear to think or at least suggest, unemployment is created by human beings making choices that suit their needs and promotes their agenda, it is not a force of nature or a natural result of living in a civilized world. Unemployment can be eliminated and by this we mean it can be eliminated by the creation of real jobs that produce meaningful goods and services that people need and generate real value for the community. Full employment is a choice like unemployment is a choice, it is just a choice that makes more sense to more people than the alternative choice. Unemployment is created by some people reducing the risk their employees represent. It is possible to create employment without increasing risk, in fact employment can be created without encountering any risk at all. Risk is the one thing that prevents jobs from being created and reduces economic activity. Discover how simple it is to create economic development without risk or threats of loss. LOGICAL MINDS ONLY guarantees that the process is far easier than you think. Logical Populism holds the key.

Why The Left Lacks Logic
The political and economic left do not just create error, it is not just wrong in some of its ideas, the left is based on incoherent premises and is so fundamentally flawed it cannot provide a logical reason for its existence. In fact without the right to feed off and give it some substance, it would self-destruct. Learn what this means for you regardless of if you are on the right or left.

The Logic Of Ownership
What is ownership? If you think ownership is two forms of authority one labelled private ownership and the other public ownership you do not understand ownership. If your politics is governed by this vision of ownership you are wasting your energy in a meaningless fight against shadows. Learn the truth about ownership.

The Way Forward For Alberta
There are three distinct ways to separate. The conventional way is to use legal proceedings and the court to try and argue ones way out of the union, a less practical but still often used process involves protests, civil disobedience and even outright armed violence. This rarely leads to a desirable result if for no other reason than the people able to lead a rebellion are probably not the best people to support a decentralized system of government. But there is a third way, the logical way. The third way speaks logic to power. In this method small groups use a grassroots process to create charities that work to systematically strip central governments of the power to tax. The process is cumulative and unstoppable because it is both infinitely scalable and customizable.

The Design Of A Logical market
A logical market is a free market or what is sometimes referred to as an Exchange. Free markets provide goods and services logically, that is without any costs that do not make sense, or that does not create real value. A logical market produces exchanges that would be made even if the buyer and seller had absolute knowledge. Free markets cannot logically create unemployment, debt, taxation, inflation, depressions, pollution, economic instability, risk or threats of loss, because these are costs no one wants to pay. Such social costs are not logical and if not logical cannot logically be part of a logical or free market. Only Dextarian Investments (the producer of the LOGICAL MINDS ONLY podcast) has the technology for creating a logical market. The basic information you need to know and what your politicians need to know, is included here.

Winning In Africa
Any place anywhere can create businesses without risk by starting a charitable institution called an Exchange. All that is needed is people who are willing to help one another. The rest is easy. Even Africa or any financially stressed economy has people and if these people will open their hearts to the needs of other they can create economic development easily and safely without risk or threat of loss.

Eden, Liberalism And Babylon; A Concise History Of Man
The history of man is the conflict between logic and liberalism. The loss of Eden gave rise to liberalism. The rise of liberalism was mirrored in the rise to dominance of Babylon. The Babylonian culture gave rise to all of our modern institutions. They are all predicated on tyranny in some form or other. Only logic has the power to overcome the institutions of this world and restore the practices ordained by God. Liberalism is not only incompatible with the ways of God it is incompatible with the Logic that defines the rule of God. We not only lose salvation when we live under the rule of Babylon we lose our rationality. Logic and liberalism are not compatible. Only those who deny the former adopt the latter and those who adopt liberalism do so only because they have rejected logic.

How Logic Defeats Capitalism
Capitalism when looked at logically, is a logical absurdity. Its elements do not fit together but conflict with one another and even the ideas it uses to explain what it is do not make logical sense. If capitalism did make sense it would not be turning into globalism at one end while socialism threatens its basic elements at the other. Capitalism is part of an ideological continuum composed of enemies that can neither reconcile nor win the competition. For logic to defeat capitalism requires the abandonment of the entire continuum on which socialism, capitalism and globalism find a home.

The Illogic Of Native Land Claims
Native land claims are beset by logical errors as are the claims made by nations. To resolve these jurisdictional problems the logical errors on which they are founded must be resolved. Only when our position is founded on logic and truth can we reconcile our differences.

Logical Faith
Faith is either logical or logic does not exist. Christians cannot prove God exists in the relativistic contingent reality of the synthetic world view that atheist subscribe to, but this does not matter because empirical science cannot prove synthetic truth is anything other than contingent, probabilistic and subject to modification. Synthetic reality is an inherently flawed conception and cannot be confirmed as it is conceived to be. Empiricism cannot be a feasible explanation of our observation and experience. Therefore, the naturalist position that reality is objective yet can only be understood contingently, is not a logical argument. The only other conclusion open to us, logically, is that analytical reality is the best descriptor of what is real. To embrace analytical truth as the only logical form of truth, is to open the door to the absolute necessity for God. The only logical option open to human beings, who choose to think logically, is to embrace faith because analytically speaking, faith is inherently and in-arguably, logical.

What Is Privilege
The left rarely defines terms. It is not possible to have rational discourse if terms are not understood. Privilege is of two kinds and ought not be confused. There is the privilege to extend the hand of charity to others. This is an earned privilege granted by God. It permits us to express love through acts of charity using the property gifted to us by God. The only other kind of privilege is the kind that says one is entitled to what others are in a position to grant; but may not wish to grant to you. The second sort of privilege is fabricated and designed to make null and void the first privilege; the God-centered privilege. If I am required to benefit you then I do not have the privilege to be charitable to whom I please with that which was given to me by God. If charity is doing the will of God with the things given to me by God then privilege that denies me this right abrogates to the one privileged the supreme right to over turn the Will of God.

Please Stop Trying To End Gun Violence
There is little logic on either side of the debate on gun violence. The very expression, gun violence, betrays the emotional level of the discussion. If anything demonstrates the tendency to divide issues into sound bites the tendency to divide violence into discrete categories has to be illustrative of what has gone wrong with social discourse. Gun violence cannot be packaged into a political issue for ease of consumption and marketing. Indeed, it is not even violence that is the real problem or criminals themselves. The problem is much wider and more embedded in our societies to permit these kinds of comforting narratives. The package may be neat, but it is empty. Please Stop Trying To End Gun Violence creates a less pretty result than conventional narratives on crime, but it has something we can actually use, inside.

How Logic Can And Will Overcome Capitalism
Liberals ace in the hole is capitalism. Liberals believe that regardless of what happens politically no one will ever challenge capitalism as the pre-eminent wealth generating idea. Yet, capitalism is exposed to logic to an unsurpassed degree. Any logical person is able to overcome capitalism and do this in such an over-whelming way, the contest is akin to that of a tornado demolishing a house of cards, capitalism being the logical equivalent of a house of cards.

Logical Business Development
How hard is it to set up a business and create economic development, really? In this episode LOGICAL MINDS ONLY demonstrates business start ups can be one of the easiest things to do and economic development is only as difficult as we choose to make it.

The Illogic Of Insurance
Insurance is one of those things that seem to make a lot of sense when one is immersed in a situation that requires it, but when thinking of the nature of reality insurance loses its meaning. A logical society does not use or need insurance. Indeed, insurance is probably one of those things that define a non-Christian the best, meaning that no Christian can reconcile his or her faith and what Scripture says. If we need insurance we are not living in a way that can be reconciled with either logic or Christianity.

The Absolute Illogic Of Migration And Immigration
If land has a carrying capacity, then how is immigration a sane response to an aging or/and declining population? Do we expect the new migrants not to age, or do we expect to find more immigrants to come and care for the previous immigrants as they age? At what point does the process end or self-destruct as it eventually must, unless we adopt a different approach to aging populations other than increasing the size of the population.

The Logic Of Reality
Reality is logical or it could not be understood by us. It is symbolic or it could not be symbolized and communicated by us. We cannot create information out of that which is relative. Truth requires absoluteness or logical coherence. We cannot derive sense out of nonsense nor symbology out of that which conveys no meaning. The idea of reality as a thing in itself which our truth can approximate but our minds never grasp nor our senses directly perceive creates a logical conundrum that cannot be rectified. Truth cannot be contingent and if truth is not relative then reality if it is to exist at all has to be logical because only logic is absolute and only analytical truth eliminates contingent and relativistic theories of reality.
