Method of Deceit

Have you ever wondered why words or phrases that are commonly used to describe something are suddenly change but the act, status or procedure remains the same?

What is gained by this action?

Who benefits from the manipulation of terms or definitions?

These are all good questions and we all benefit from understanding the “why” behind the answers. 

This week a news source reported that the Biden administration would be using new terms in the immigration bill being submitted to Congress.  In the article, “the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services acting Director Tracy Renaud recently issued a memo calling for “more inclusive language in the agency’s outreach efforts, internal documents and in overall communication with stakeholders, partners and the general public is another prime example of how groups try and get the apparent approval from others.”  They also reported, “The memo suggests some examples, such as using “undocumented noncitizen” or “undocumented individual” rather than “illegal alien” and “integration or civic integration” instead of “assimilation.”

As my readers know, I am all about finding truthful solutions to our problems; regardless if I like or dislike it personally. I believe that most people want to tell the truth but some will go out of their way to manipulate the language in order to maintain the impression of truth without telling it entirely.  This further acerbates the problems dividing us today; speaking the truth comes with being silenced by the fear of alienating someone while the main-street media and our own government are implicit in assisting in this division.  People and groups are finding creative ways of changing terms or phrases of distasteful topics and positioning these changes as efforts to be “more compassionate and inclusive”.  We went from “abortion rights” to “female reproductive rights”, yet both are inexplicitly tied to the problem of women killing their unborn children.  These efforts do not make a foolish choice wise or make a lie true.  As long as people understand the truth, these deceptive methods do not work but when the messages are delivered repeatedly, in mass public communications, totally out of the original context and when many of whom receive the messages are not educated on the topic; it can and does make all the difference. They know the majority who will hear the messages will not know, understand or care about the topic; then when they follow up with polling to this same specific demographic the numbers will be on their side.  They will then spout, “See, the people agree with us.” but if asked differently, truthfully and with relevant details, the outcome would be the complete opposite.

Unethical, YES but illegal, NO, but still very WRONG!

If this is my last post, I want all to know there was only one purpose for all that I have written; to have made a positive difference in the lives of others.

Solutions Are Never Free

Do you ever wonder why you do what you do? 

In your line of work, is there an underlining reason for everything that you do?

Are you passionate about this reason?  

Sure, we all work to provide a product or service that solves a problem for others that they can’t solve on their own.  For a price, businesses will sell you this product or that service to alleviate your problem but accessing some of these products or services requires more than just money.  It might require good health, good character and / or a certain credit rating.  In essence, to be able to solve some problems, you have to be doing the right things before the problem occurs and plan in advance for a future problem.  For some people, this adds another problem to their list of problems that they have to deal with.  Solving some of life’s problems for many can feel overwhelming.  At those times, they need a Solutionary to come to their aid.

A Solutionary, is my term for an ethical “problem-solving” expert with a selfless heart.  They must be viewed as a trustworthy individual so that you are comfortable in their detective work when it comes to knowing all the relevant facts in personal areas of your life, as it pertains to the problem you want them to solve.    

As an example, for the men and women who make their living solving insurance related problems, because they are passionate about what they do, the dichotomy described above can bring a high level of frustration.  In most cases, it is easy to solve a person’s problem when they have the money needed to purchase the solution and they are willing to act now.  It becomes extremely difficult to solve that same problem when there is no money or they are allocating the money to less important things, they are already in poor health or financially ill and on top of that, they believe they are in no hurry.

Believe me when I say, “Money is very rarely the true deterrent when purchasing insurance as a solution to a problem.”  It is likely, a budgeting issue where needed resources are currently being used in less important ways.  It is the Solutionary’s responsibility to bring this to the attention of the client, regardless of the level of discomfort this might entail.  It is the client’s responsibility for their loved ones that should drive the necessary actions to fix the budget as needed.

When the client’s health is already poor or their past actions has injured their character and or their financial health there will be limited recourse available to the Solutionary.  That is why we must all be vigilant in helping one another other to be the best version of our self.  We should each strive to help one another by not being quiet about the ills we see around us.  As a caring society, when we see someone hurting themselves, we must step forward to make them aware that there is a better way.  Yes, they might not listen to one stranger but if the message is carried by many whom they respect, it will eventually be received.   

The most frustrating objection is when the client believes they are in no hurry to act.  This is elevated in the Solutionary’s heart because of the experiences they lived through from those other clients who came to the same realization too late.  Those people whose health was already bad; the man whose debt was out of control, the woman who over indulges with alcohol or medications or the person who smoked cigarettes for twenty years without a problem then was just diagnosed with lung cancer.  These are real people who come to Solutionaries too late but need insurance that all the money in the world cannot buy.
