The Winning Perspective for Survival

The Winning Perspective for Survival

When it comes to the perspective on life and living, it’s clear that society’s elites think differently than the masses. Take Ted Turner, for example. He’s the billionaire responsible for the 24/7 infotainment culture of today, which began with cable. While it’s not uncommon for many to eventually figure out what drives society, few have the brains and the nerve to grab the rudder.

Today on Rob Raskins’ Millionaire Survivalist, we’ll consider how Ted Turner’s massive success translates to his views about society, success, and survival. He can be a tough nut to crack, especially the deeper you look, regardless of where you might stand on the political spectrum.

Famously Outspoken

“Life is a game. Money is how we keep score.” “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” “Most of the people will have died, and the rest of us will be cannibals.” These are quotes of Ted Turner’s, both unapologetically candid and brutal, as is often the case with the classic image of the ultraconservative elite billionaire capitalist who forges an empire while the masses go jobless and hungry.

Deeper Analysis

As the masses often focus on the beauty of a life often riddled with suffering and confusion, such words can appear heartless and cruel, even threatening. Of course, this may be because such phrases are often taken out of context. Which context? The context of a cold-hearted, tight-fisted miser a la Ebeneezer Scrooge or the blood-thirsty hunter of “The Most Dangerous Game?” Hardly. Even if these are Ted’s own words, he cannot be credited with inventing these views.

Anyone with a college-level study of economic theory, which explores the relationship between humans and their access to resources necessary for their own survival, has likely read books such as “A Modest Proposal”  by Jonathan Swift, which satirically suggested that the potato famine in Ireland could be solved by feeding the starving children to the starving adults. Another famous work by Thomas Malthus indicated that food would grow arithmetically while human populations would grow geometrically.

Translation? Simple. Since the growth of food via farming is no longer the sole means of population growth, humans would have to solve a food shortage, which historically leads to war, and in some cases, cannibalism. Of course, both of these books were written in the 1700s, but the principles they’re founded on are grounded in history. While people rely more and more on science to solve the problems of the modern world, who controls the science?

Many scientific advancements can be traced to unspeakable experiments made possible by Hitler. Meanwhile, Ted Turner was a champion of environmentalism, nuclear arms reduction, and disseminating news and information to the masses, which empowers all of us, regardless of race, class, or wealth. So how is this the work of a billionaire capitalist ready to eat human flesh?

Simple. It’s just words. If most people could hear the thoughts and words of their favorite athletes, musicians, or actors before a competition, they’d hear what their agents and publicists work tirelessly to keep from the public. So, while the masses sit around agreeing with each other on social media, remember this: the millionaires are doing this too. When the SHTF and society spirals out of control, guess who’ll be protected from view of the masses and not missing any meals.
