Delta Paradigm...Changes of Framework
"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there’d be a shortage of sand.”
There are many laws or axioms all about us that are held to be accepted as truths, such as the ones pointed out by Thomas Jefferson in the preamble of the Declaration of Independence. Other illustrations are laws of the universe, laws of physics, theology, economics, investing….that have stood the test of time.
Whether it be the unrequited love of Romeo and Juliet or the bravery of the 300 Spartans as they stood defending their city-state against the Greeks in Thermopylae, man’s reasoning and interactions with man does not change. We love the same, we fight the same, and people continue to strive for wealth, success, safety, security, and freedom the same.
But what if the frame work of how we look at things has changed?
In modern times do we still look at certain things the same as we did just recently in our memory: Is the “Almighty Dollar” still a store of value? Does put your money in the bank, not under your mattress, still resonate common sense? ‘Contract Law’ and ‘Too big to Fail’, are they conflicts of interest? In ‘God We Trust’? American Made? Neither a lender nor a borrower be? Do these moral compasses connote the same feelings to you as they did 10, 20, or 30 years ago?
Delta Paradigm is about “truths that we hold as self-evident” and then clarifying the framework for the Vision of how we are to look at them. For instance, is the fiat monetary system we use today, based upon "truth" or "faith"? Is gold and silver a collectible, a commodity or a currency? Our founding fathers in the constitution considered gold and silver a currency to be coined in specific amounts and weights. Gold and silver has been used as an exchange of barter for 6,000 years. The average life span of paper currency is 80 years. Truth.
To define “financial security” today is a rubix cube. More importantly, how do you keep it? If the Dollar is not so mighty, and too big to fail means more debt and deficits, where do you go to find safety and security? Do we still consider our retirements as secure, the way we would have thought in the recent past? When an insurance company or government provides guarantees, are you ready to take it to the “Bank”?
Come explore with us the “truths” to believe in and create a new framework to focus our vision on the events as they unfold around us. Through our links to periodicals, government websites, expert commentary and our current events library, we hope that your understanding of the facts becomes deeper, the field of your views broader, and the future brighter with the power of knowledge.
