Backbaygrouch sardonically said that one thing I was saying was that politicians are only interested in the next election. That is a smartass remark, meant humorously, but it is also Mantra Thinking.
Unlike any other forum that calls itself intellectual, we encourage simplification. Porch Talk does not use big words.
Yes, that is one thing I said. I repeated a simple reality. But Mantra Thinking sees the simple thought and then THINKS about it, rather than just saying it in a complicated way to be impressive.
It took me many years to realize that most of what I say is simply THINKING about what people already know. Nothing is more commonly known than that the Puritans did not come here for religious tolerance. But once they have made that statement, they give it no more thought. I THOUGHT about it, the way the old man on the porch does.
If you think beyond that simple statement, you get some profound results. Yes, the Puritans came here to impose their own religion. But they FAILED. New England became Unitarian. No one ever THINKS about this.
Newton did not DISCOVER gravity, he THOUGHT about gravity.
I did not DISCOVER Genocide by Assimilation, I THOUGHT about it and produced the Mantra.
I have a lot of information, but I am not happy until I fit those facts into a common sense lesson. I make it obvious.
THAT is Mantra Thinking.
