We’re living in an epic period of change, danger, wealth creation, science, technology, IQ, and opportunity. In 2008, the old economy was reshuffled and the cards re-dealt with smart people tending to get the best hands. Meanwhile, less intelligent, less creative people people are getting fired and replaced by computers, foreigners, or temp workers. The stock market keeps going up. Too big to fail policy has been a success, like it or not. Since 2008, and especially since 2013, the old world of liberalism, social justice, and overpaid jobs has been demolished…and people are desperate for answers.
This website contains those answers. This is the field guide to the “New Era” we live in. You can play by the old rules and get left behind, or you can use these new ideas and gain understanding. This is not a website for the faint of heart. Read at your own risk, because sometimes the truth is hard to take. But for those who are ready to hear, I provide an updated map of the new territory for attaining Enlightenment. This website is the guide to understanding our economy and the world, and breaking free from the chains of rusted, old thinking.
The Grey Enlightenment is a midpoint between the ‘Dark Enlightenment’ and ‘The Enlightenment’, in rejecting egalitarianism and liberalism but supporting capitalism, technology, and the study of human biodiversity (HBD). Anther theme of the blog is debunking sensationalism, whether it’s doom and gloom, economics nonsense, left-liberalism and social justice, or get-rich-quick schemes.
The underlying idea behind the Grey Enlightenment is to slowly phase out America’s wasteful, encumbering democratic and social institutions through incrementalism while promoting utilitarian/pragmatist/rationalist based public policy, with an emphasis on the optimal allocation of public resources, and preserving the tenets of private property, individual autonomy, and free market capitalism, in agreement with various forms of libertarianism, classical liberalism, and conservatism.
