    In light of @MJ DeMarco 's new book, I figured it might be somewhat enlightening to see the SCRIPTED OS in action. Hopefully those of you who read the book don't take it at face value, but apply it to your surroundings. Get to know the world around you. Understand it. Beat the system through calculated bets.

    Now, rather than have a lengthy discussion on each item shared by others, I thought it'd be a cool idea for us to simply leave behind pieces to read, videos to watch, etc. and accumulate a vault of where, how and what the SCRIPT is in the most real-to-life ways.

    By leaving out the discussion portion, but adding resources to the vault, we can let each person learn and understand on their own terms.

    My only regret in starting this thread may be how fast it grows, because we're so surrounded.

    See the world around you, objectively, and decide to be vigilant, disciplined, and autonomous.

    oh come on i didn't read the book yet!
    that first article sad af though... but what did the chick do the first 55 years before being so desperate for money... ????

    this brings up a persistent question i have regarding young people.
    why do people insist on ignoring their lack of security?
    if ur 1st generation immigrant, if u have no family connection with private property, no backup living situation, etc etc
    then your work is cut out for you! how can you party it up when ur 2 paychecks from broke? an accident from broke? an economic downturn from broke?
    its illogical!? why are people so damn illogical? ur basically in a heartless land with no parcel of ground to call ur own and u go party it up. how!?

    The answer is right there in the article:
    "having never done much long-term financial planning"
    "in 2008, as the U.S. economy spasmed, she lost her home" (aka bad debt)
    "She owes $50,000 on her credit cards."

    Like you @luniac, I don't understand why people do this to themselves.

    Wouldn't a collection of real life script-bucking be more productive? The ways to fail are unlimited, the ways to succeed are few.

    The idea is learning what it is, first, hence the...

    How can you fight the dark side if you can't recognize the dark side?

    Why would @MJ DeMarco commit the first few sections to recognition if it was non-important?

    A child identifies his colors by seeing them over and over. Only then does he choose a favorite color.

    The Recession Hurt Americans' Retirement Accounts More Than Anybody Knew

    I thought this article was interesting because not only does it point out how following the script can lead to disaster (the 2008 recession), it briefly unveils the lies (buy more stocks!), but then defends the script by promoting a government required employer sponsored retirement fund with guaranteed returns (as if that's a thing)

    And at 3% returns!!! (don't spend it all in one place)

    The script DOES NOT WORK, so let's get other people to pay for it? That's just more of the same script!

    (pointing out the script, not the politics, so no political crap please)

    It's not, but, if you make money selling books on the topic, you might have a different opinion :frown:

    You can not lead people astray if they have always been on the same path.

    The entrepreneurs. The creators. The leaders. We are the ones that have been led astray.

    I prefer the challenge, and reward, of taking the road less taken.

    Other people don't and that's fine. We need employees.

    That's complete & utter bullshit!

    Mine was worth $12/hr.

    In 2000.


    *sigh

    Unfortunately, I feel like this isn't new news... just more people realize it now. I remember feeling so betrayed, lied to.... like I was slapped in the face in trying to reach for everything I was promised... it's part of what spurned my entrepreneurial endeavors. I just wasn't having this $12/hr bullshit. The game wasn't going to change for me so I had to change the way I played.

    minimum wage in new york is 11 an hour now.
    if people weren't so materialistic, 1 roomate + rent controlled apartment is great.
    I'm 90% sure gettin fired next month from my office job(disagreement over my intrinsic value proposition)
    so i lose my 16 dollas an hour... big whoop lol im a minimalist :) its more blessing than a curse.
    Ill get a nice labor job picking things up and put them down, gettin paid to work out and exercise! vs sitting in a fuckin chair 8 hours a day.
    ill come home and make apps on the computer, go to bed, rinse repeat until success lol

    Slowlane Pension Crisis/The Pension Gap
    How a pension deal went wrong and cost California taxpayers billions

    Highlights - In California the difference of what has been set aside for pensions and what they will eventually owe is $241BILLION!
    Even with a market rebound pension funds have not caught up
    The light on the end of the tunnel is a fast moving train not the end of the tunnel - bottom line if you are thinking your 30yrs hard work for the State of California will allow you to retire with lifetime benefits think again!
    Sidenote: I know a nurse who retired from LA county. They offered her 9,500 per month for life or 1.2 million cash. I strongly advised her I would take the cash. She took the monthly benefits :(

    Is My Car An Asset Or A Liability?

    Your car is an asset. Evidence: It generates no income and costs money to operate.

    Thought of this mythology yesterday after finding out the Camry I paid $4k for 2 years ago needs a $5k engine replacement. :thumbsup:

    A while ago here in the UK, there was a lot of noise about mandatory pensions for employees.

    Sheep response: "Lord Government is looking out for me and saving me from those greedy capitalists!"

    My response: Hmm. Genius Ponzi scheme - siphon off everyone's savings into a convenient piggy bank to be raided, Cyprus style, next time the overlords run out of other people's money. And have them worship you for it.

    All Unemployment is Voluntary

    How Business Happens: All Unemployment is Voluntary

    Highlights: All those not otherwise capable (illness, physical, mental, etc.) of working are voluntarily accepting unemployment.
    While many are of the "scripted" mindset there are many unfilled jobs available.
    The author (the late John Spiers) notes he see's BMW's and MB's at the welfare office.
    In a free market or anarchy, business's thrive - especially small niche business's that solve customers needs
    Don't stand in line for unemployment, job fair, etc.
    There is an alternative - Start your own business! (be "unscripted")
    Hire the folks standing in line don't be in that line!
    Start your own business NOW!

    Most approprietly a Yoda Quote for Yoda's post:

    The dark side clouds everything. Impossible to see the future is. – Yoda

    Just substitute the word "script" for "dark side" :)

    Scripted Jobs most susceptible to automation

    The Parts of America Most Susceptible to Automation

    Highlights:
    Most think the hardest area/jobs hit with automation will be the Rust Belt and manufacturing - Not so!
    Much of the manufacturing is already automated
    Areas of high concentration of food preparation, office or administrative support and/or sales will be most effected by automation
    Las Vegas, Riverside-San Bernardino, El Paso, Orlando and Louisville will be hardest hit
    More than 55% of jobs will be lost to automation in those industries areas

    Note: follow the unscripted path and avoid becoming obsolete to a machine!
