Program Of Study

For starters, it is important to mention what NOT to study or consume … if only to have more time to spend studying things that might actually matter. You should detest hysteria and sensationalized distortion of risk; this means deliberately taking steps to carefully examine analyze data in order to more rationally determine the best course of action. Exactly WHAT are you going to do as a result of what you have learned.  Thus, it is important to NEVER follow news or current events in order  to be well-informed; likewise, it is important to never waste your time being distracted by celebrities, movies, television programming or other content intended for the masses … the people around you will be more than sufficiently distracted, spooked and herded as prey animals by the predatory drivers of chaos in the media and entertainment sources they overconsume that you will obtain far more than enough information just by being subjected to the waves of induced hysteria in the stampeded bovines.  The hysteria in the herd which the entertainment and news media sources produce does furnish important information — to wit, there is a very simple rule from the Latin phrase Cui Bono which always applies. When it comes to news, NEVER forget this rule — ALWAYS think in terms of who is benefiting from spreading this garbage — your own analysis of herd behavior using that principle will tell you what your best source of action will be … unless you want to be a prey animal, it will ALWAYS be up to you to determine EXACTLY what you are going to do about it. Almost all of the time, you can safely ignore the hysteria — your best course of action will be to learn more about OTHER things that affect you more directly.
