No other creature but man, philosophizes. The fact human beings can mull over problems and see both immediate and general solutions does not mean all persons are good at the art of thinking; let alone skilled at the art of doing. Some people after serious reflection think selling drugs, committing a violent act or killing themselves is the best possible solution to whatever problems they are facing. This does not suggest must aptitude for either thought or work.
Others conclude that drinking or taking drugs or begging is the best response to a life problem. The world is full of people who think long and hard and come up with solutions others disagree with. Who or what determines right from wrong? Must morality rest on the group with the strongest young men who use the most ruthless tactics?
Thinking right is thinking in a positive way. Negativity can only result in an outcome with a net loss.
Social Positivism is thinking right meaning thinking and doing in a way that ends up providing us with a net benefit.
Exchanges are organizations that instill the habits of positive action in participants. Positive Exchanges are positive markets that ensure net benefits to participants.
Poverty, unemployment, debt, taxation and injustice, are social costs. All social costs are forms of value negation. Injustice is an offense against our values as enshrined in our property rights. If your community has social costs it is negative the value created by positive thinkers and doers. If your has social costs its institutions infringe upon your positive property rights.
If we do not think in a positive way, wrong decisions are made. Wrong meaning we suffer a net loss of value. If we do not trust one another to think right, risk and threats of loss increase. Risk creates social costs. Social costs create waste and waste creates a net loss of value. There is no way out of this logic. We act in a positive way of we suffer a net loss of value.
Unemployment, taxation, debt, inflation, interest payments, and war are all forms of social costs. All social costs infringe on property rights. The net loss of value has to be compensated for by a transfer of value created elsewhere.
When property rights are not respected, we create losses in the form of social costs and risk. When we encounter risk, we stop trusting one another. People who no longer trust one another stop trusting God. When we do not trust God we stop reaching higher and further and broader and wider.
The desire of the devil is to cause us to create social costs. Social costs turn us one against the other. Social costs make others into a source of risk. When we have turned against each other he knows we will also turn against God.
To think positively is to reduce risk and threats of loss and eliminate social costs. To think negatively is to create social costs and infringe upon the property rights of others. To build and progress we need to think positively.

The Age of Liberalism Has Persisted For 6000 Years. The Liberal Era is defined by negative thinking.
To understand The Liberal Era, we need to understand property rights and why liberals are opposed to private property. Liberals may say they are fighting for justice; but their actions always infringe upon our property rights. Sinister thinking is about legitimizing moral freedom. Human rights only produce moral freedom when these rights are not tied to property. Rights as property rights are not consistent with the idea of moral freedom.
Moral freedom is manifested in the doctrine that might makes right and the belief that ends justify the means. Without respect for property rights we have social costs. Social costs include such things as unemployment, debt, taxation, war and crime, waste, poverty, inflation, depressions, business cycles, interest payments and inequality.
Moral freedom translates into power over property. Legal rights are rights under the law. Legal rights are not true human rights. Legal rights infringe upon our property rights and create inequality. When liberals say they love freedom what they mean is that they love power over property. Liberals love the power to overrule the rights of property owners. This authority by liberals over property rights means ownership for liberals is based on legal possession not the rights of the creator to what he or she creates.
The Age Of Liberalism is defined by:
Three Sisters of liberalism
The three woman of the bible who first exhibited the mindset of a liberal. If you want to know why liberalism is the way it is and how and why the facets of liberalism arose, watch this video. Liberalism is founded on traits manifested in three women; Eve, Sara and Herodias.
The Age of Liberalism is a direct result of liberalisms love of power. Knowledge of Good and Evil is power over property. The fruit of power is inequality of ownership. Power gives liberals freedom but at the expense of equality and justice. Power is an infringement of the property rights of others. This is the definition of injustice.
Liberals reject the rights of owners to what they create, because these rights interfere with the power they desire. Costs cannot be externalized when justice is enforced.
Adam and Eve thought they had a right to possess what was in the Garden (though they had created nothing in the Garden). Democracy is an expression of the doctrine of might makes right. A majority vote affirms the legal right of the majority to exercise Power of Attorney over what belongs to others. Liberalism replaces human rights with legal rights and the rights of possession is made to trump the rights of the creator.
Ownership is defined by the act of creation. Ownership requires we be accountable for the costs we create. We own only what we create not what was created by others. We cannot impose our costs onto others.
Democratic majorities cannot overrule or invalidate the rights of ownership exercised by the creator to what he or she creates.
Democratic elections beguile governments into believing the state has a legitimacy and power it does not have. No majority can eliminate accountability. No group regardless of their size can invalidate the rights of ownership. No one can logically challenge the right of the creator to what he or she creates. No one has the right to impose their costs onto the creator.
Until we reject the right to impose our costs onto others, we are not thinking right.

The Golden Exchange is a mission provided to seniors for seniors designed to create autonomy in through charity within the setting of a local retirement community.
