An indication of America’s economic health is seen in it’s ability to function as a free, self-regulated market. However, in our increasingly armored society a free market economy can only be an ideal. What must be generally understood and accepted is that America’s economic health ultimately depends on the American people’s state of emotional health. The biological capacity for independent and responsible work functioning of the American people is the essential element of emotional health required for a healthy economy. That being said, the degree of America’s economic health versus it’s sickness depends on the following factors:
1) The degree to which emotionally helpless people who are nevertheless able-bodied become dependent on the Federal Government for their survival.
2) The degree to which the Federal Government encourages the public to be dependent on it and dictates them to be controlled (“regulated”) by it.
3) The degree to which the free market becomes disrupted and paralyzed by armored people’s criminal and quasi-criminal activity in the marketplace.
These symptoms of the American people’s emotional illness directly result in the pathological manifestations of today’s economy. The capacity of people to tolerate having a genuinely healthy free market economy depends entirely on the capacity of individuals to tolerate being emotionally healthy and responsibly free. We are farther than ever from attaining this economic state. The public’s increasing emotional sickness makes greater control of the marketplace by the Federal Government necessary.
Before any real improvement can occur in economic conditions, the emotional sickness of people that interfere with a free market economy must first be recognized and addressed outside the political arena. This is not a political matter and the political battles between the Left and the Right have nothing to do with the underlying emotionally based economic problems. They only function to conceal them and make things worse. That is, they are a manifestation of the emotional plague.
