Robert Malthus watched the economy and demographics with rapt attention. He watched and saw what no one before him ever see... He saw something... and got really excited. He got up to write an article... It was the turn of the century, about 1798.
The phenomenon he saw, now called after him, the Malthusian Principle, is that when harvest is good, when the economy is good, people think it will last forever, eat better, spend what they have, make more babies...
But the nature of things is cyclical, and economies get better and then get worse. So all those extra babies starved to death, literally, and the population, again, lived in near starvation levels.
This was the history of the British peasantry... until something happened... I could only call it an evolutionary shift. The Brits started to see the errors of their ways, and started to withhold on babies and consumption, and, gasp, save for uncertain futures. In today's terms, the Brits learned how to delay gratification.
This was the first country this happened, and maybe the only one, and this is why the Industrial Revolution that made Britain and then Europe the top of the economies happened.
Now, this is very interesting, but what does it have to do with you?
A lot, I say. All that you ever wanted is only available if you bring the ability to delay gratification in every area of life.
I notice I want to spend the extra money that hits my paypal account. I notice that (PAY ATTENTION!) that I want to declare a problem licked and solved, after a day of it not showing itself.
I called it overconfidence in another article, I call it myopic stupidity in this one, and yet, it is there, every time, as predictable as that the sun will come up on the East.
Evolution, thinking, habits, that are hardwired in all of us, change very slowly and ONLY under extreme duress.
Society values a member if they don't yell wolf too often or too early.
Society values a member who can keep their head down and mind their own business.
Society values a member if they can bear hardship silently, without alerting others that there are issues.
A consumer society also values a member who consumes recklessly.
Why? Because society is a machine, and it likes to be turned on, and never turned off.
When you see or experience something that can wipe out your family, your neighborhood, your country, your society, the machine, doesn't want to know about it. It doesn't want to have to deal with it... after all it wants to just do what it was designed to do: run, and use people for fodder.
As some of us are actively fighting the debilitating effects of the human biting mites epidemic, this, the machine like society, the fitting in people, is what we are dealing with.
We want to fit in with society, after all our livelihood comes from there... and yet.
Two billion people are infected, and the numbers are growing.
You can't just clean yourself and your body, get rid of the critters that are chewing on you, don't let you sleep, irritate you to distraction, and cause you cancer and other diseases, and say: I'm done. No.
If you leave the house, hey even if you don't leave your house, the fact that other people are unconsciously carrying the mites, puts you in constant danger of reinfestation.
In Queens the frequency of bed bugs has reached epic proportions. People are in the streets, and can't go back to their houses: the bed bugs are everywhere.
I saw the writing on the wall when friends reported that they can't go to a movie house without taking home some bed bugs...
The solution to the bed bug epidemic is as simple as the solution to the mites epidemic. The only problem with it is this: it has to be across the board, every person, every house, or it will not make a difference.
Just like with the economy, fast or famine in the 18th Century, someone has to yell loud enough to wake people up, and somehow make the machine stop and take notice.
People bitten at night don't perform well during the day.
They are distracted, they are worried, they are dull, make mistakes, lose limbs, or burn down the factory.
It's time for us to yell loud enough to make the machine stop, organize us (that's what we hired governments for!) so we can build effective and organized defense.
During the middle ages, the carrier was rats and mice. In today's day and age, insects are "better" carriers, and microscopic mites are excellent... they are microscopic and by now hey are on two billion people! 100 million just in the United States alone.
What are we going to do about it? 2
What is predictable is that humanity will be decimated... yeah, no exaggeration. Just like limes disease, the tick borne disease, these blood suckers will start carrying diseases... as if their activity weren't enough already.
Mark my word.
- the same or similar phenomenon, i.e. bacteria, there are arguments
- On my Biting-Mites.com site we are documenting the available cures, prevention, and simplify them. If you want seven billion people to do the same thing: Make it simple, and cheap. So far we have the solution that is cheap and simple for all three types of biting mites, that are not handled by society. Scabies, the only one that is, I don't address there. And Morgellons: it is not a separate disease... it is one or maybe all three microscopic mites... I do need some testers that claim they have Morgellons. If you know anyone, please let them know about this opportunity. At this point I charge people to get the solution: I must make a living, after all. But eventually I'll make it free. But do you really want to wait?
