Read our review of Blackhat. I've heard it said that advanced education is often an inoculation against common sense. Surrounded by Ivory Tower, protected by tenure, there are absolutely no consequences for advancing bizarre and unworkable theories dreamed up by obscure scholars. Whenever politicians act on these nonsensical fantasies, the every day person who must rely on practical common sense pays the price, and he or she pays dearly for it! But alas, the dolts, dumb-asses and dead-weights of society still make up a majority of the voters; hence, the vile, vulgar and vulture-like politicians remain, to continue doing damage to whatever is decent and good remaining in the USA.
Having gone to what is considered an "elite" university, I can concur that it took me awhile to return to my innate common sense, after being "inoculated" by academia. I still, as Robert says, "forget to apply what I already know" in some cases and regret it later. The politicians vacate common sense ON PURPOSE to deceive the sheeple so too, the media liars , but the clearest indication you are utilizing common sense is if you have created a life of happiness for yourself, since so many fail in this regard.
Then there are also those in government. And we can't forget the new graduates who think the world owes them. I'm always saying common sense is not commonly practiced. Great article RR. Common sense is the foundation of a successful life. Without it, and the discipline to live by it as you have stated guarantees failure.
Common sense as practiced by far too many is not common. So many of today's "isms" are really evidence of a lack of common sense. For example, I was speaking with an African American woman on the telephone, trying to get her name and address for a follow up call. She was eating while she was speaking, and had a rather unusual name. A female co-worker was overlooked for a promotion. She repeatedly missed work due to her then teenage sons' problems with the law among other things.
When she was at work, she did just enough to be visible, and didn't make any effort to contribute to departmental or corporate goals. A man with more experience and a resume of accomplishments was hired as department head. She was later fired. One reason the left is able to grab and maintain power is that common sense isn't all that common. Neither is the maturity to accept responsibility for situations one has created.
Great, common sense in writing about common sense. In many situations "common sense ain't common any more. To clarify; the vast majority of problems that people have is that they are human, emotions and all! Hang on Jurgy, are you thinking of Mr Spock? This is another one of your master pieces Robert.

Keep up the great work Sir. You are truly one in a million Frank Candy. I see so many people who are unhappy because of the feelings they chose. I had an interesting talk with my 18 year old daughter this weekend. Me: Happiness is a choice. No one can make you happy.
Buy for others
Her: But don't I make you happy? Me: Of course. Being around you is a pleasant thing and I'm happy. Me: You need to realize that you should be happy without it needing to be another person who causes it. Because that would mean the other person could make you unhappy. So it's best to be in control of your own thoughts and emotions. I'll reiterate this randomly. Hopefully it will stick. Her bff was right there listening in as well. Rolling out common sense one day at a time. Knowledge is to be sought, common sense is a thing to be practiced and applied, wisdom should be valued and cherished.
If schools were teaching this as early as possible, and students were given frequent reminders of this important lesson, this country would be a lot better off. When my kids were little they got good grades which shows an ability to learn, but would often make really dumb choices in things not school related. I sure would like for you to write MORE on common sense. Maybe you can help the few in the world who are willing to learn and apply your wisdom.
The Last Temptation of Christ Movie Review
They always provided great lessons on what not to do! Thanks for another great article. Doing what feels good in the present moment — NOT! Acting on emotion — NOT! But immediate self-gratification as inspired and taught via our celebrity culture, schools, liberal and progressive thinkers has been: 'do what feels good'. That's been the mantra well over 60 years. Common sense is just another sound judgment kicked to the dust heap of history.
Don't know who said it or the exact words. Anyways it was along those lines, I personally see that it also requires that push and discipline to take the right action. Many laws in your country and in ours aren't made on the basis of common sense. They seem to be arbitrary and are made by people who haven't been down there in the trenches with those who have to live by the same laws. Common sense, apart from what's been discussed above, seems to be the ability to read a situation and act accordingly. To respond rather than to react.
Zig Ziglar discussed the differences between those and I agree with him. Finally, it seems to be the hallmark of mature people.
Of those who are neither too rigid, nor too laissez-faire, but who get the job done or get on with it in spite of the challenges. On the other hand, Ayn Rand pointed out that collectivism is much simpler to explain to the ignorant masses than rational selfishness. It's very easy to explain to the dumb-shits, " vote for me, and I'll provide a free education, medical care, EBT cards, housing, phones and a sex change….
Free markets punish those who cannot adapt and compete with other highly competitive, creative and disciplined individuals.. And the ignorant masses don't like to be punished for anything. Not even a little bit. It's much easier to vote than to compete…. And that's why America transmogrified into amerika, because the lazy dumb-shits far outnumber the go getters…. Another reason why Western Civilization is going to shortly collapse is women were granted the right to vote…..
Absolutely and unquestionably true, esp. The establishment of women's voting rights in merely compounded the fundamental problem that began way before the women's suffrage movement. And the contemporary feminist today has jumped on that movement like a Chucky Schumer promise to increase the minimum wage. Like a fine vintner who processes and ages his wine with an artists touch, modern feminists play their liberal political puppets like a priceless Romanian violin.
No longer does the modern woman need to rely on the male husband for support. They have uncle Sam for that. They can have it all now, and without any help from some Neanderthal male by their side holding their hand. Moreover, regarding "common sense" I have to agree with Ludwig von Mises that common sense only advances civilation so far. Mises explained ever so adroitly how both common and uncommon sense, intellectual cognition and the conceptual capacity of man was necessary to propel civilization forward away from the mindless primitive.
And what was needed most then — and now — is uncommon sense. If you ask me, civilization is breaking down, not withstanding the scientific and technological breakthroughs… Humankind has a few things going for it. The tens of thousands of scientists are the real heros — not the firemen, soldiers, cops and first responders… The first responders solve no long term problems … They only put out fires…. The other thing humankind has going for it is philosophers like Molyneux and rebels like Alex Jones. For Your Family Log in Sign me up. Parents' Ultimate Guide to Support our work!
