The innate laziness of men and the necessity of competition forces the progress of civilization ???
Below is beautifull comment by Cornel Ionescu:
Lean in the vision of an army general Helmuth Karl Bernhard Graf von Moltke (1800 - 1891) was a Prussian general, the Chief of the General Staff (Großer Generalstab) of the Prussian army and a great strategist. Immediately after his appointment, he underwent reforms, including the training and promotion of officers. To this end, he evaluated them according to two criteria: * the degree of intelligence (from stupid to intelligent) and * attitude towards work (from lazy to hardworking). Based on these criteria, four groups / types of officers resulted: * A: stupid and lazy * B: smart and hard working * C: stupid and hardworking * D: smart and lazy The officers in category A, stupid and lazy, gave them simple and repetitive tasks. They could not advance in the military career. One day they may come up with a good idea, but more importantly, they don't cause problems. Moltke considered that category B officers, intelligent and hard-working, were obsessed with micromanagement (they are lost in the limelight) and are therefore poor quality leaders. A promotion is possible, but not up to the level of General Staff. These officers gave the certainty that the orders would be fulfilled on time and in full detail. Officers in category C, stupid and hard-working, were considered dangerous. Moltke said they should be under constant surveillance, which is unacceptable in the military. Because they could have created serious problems, difficult to solve, they were removed from the army. Intelligent and lazy category D officers were the ones that Moltke considered best suited for the highest command positions. These officers were smart enough to know what to do, but also lazy enough to find the easiest and easiest way to achieve the required goal. It is true that laziness alone is not productive. It must be combined with intelligence. Lazy and intelligent people have an advantage in society and are the most successful for the leadership role in an organization.
The wood in the vision of a longevity
Born in Tunstall on November 4, 1902, he is the oldest man in the United Kingdom living in Derbyshire since 1947, and throughout his life witnessed two world wars, was a priest in the British Army and a teacher for 10 years, being married 3 times. Asked to reveal the secret of longevity, the senior confessed candidate: laziness! Many have thought it was just a joke, but recent studies have shown that low energy consumption can help us live long and well. People who are not too busy to work and who have been horrified by physical exercises have long suspected this, but now it has been confirmed by scientists: laziness prolongs life! Those who wake up at dawn and get up all day are preparing their grave from a young age, says Dr. Peter Axt, a public health expert, quoted by the Daily Mail. He recommends that we spend half our free time, instead of going to the gym or jogging. Dr. Peter Axt and his daughter, Dr. Michaela Axt-Gadermann, have published a book ("Joy of Lenii: How to leave it softer and live longer"), which largely explains that all people have a limited amount of "Vital energy" and that the speed with which it is consumed, precisely determines the life expectancy of each person. They also say that energy-intensive activities, such as "firing" into a fitness room, accelerate aging and make the body more susceptible to illness. "A more relaxed lifestyle is important for health ... If you have a stressful life and you exercise excessively, the body produces hormones that cause hypertension, ”says Axt-Gadermann. She added that one of the key differences between slower and overactive people is that more active organisms produce more "free radicals" (unstable oxygen molecules) that are thought to accelerate aging. Moreover, "laziness is also important for a healthy immune system because cells specialized in the defense of the body are stronger in conditions of relaxation than in stressful situations." And during relaxation and metabolism is slower, less free radicals are produced. Both Axt-Gadermann, 34, and his father, age 65, were long-distance runners (bottom), which allows them to claim that they are speaking out. At the same time, they say that laughter is a healthier alternative than running or exercise. In the book, the two researchers say that laziness is also very good for the brain. This is because exercise or stress results in the production of a surplus of cortisol, a hormone that damages neurons causing memory loss and premature senility. "Lenea is nothing but a habit of rest before you get tired," said Jules Renard.
The negative effects of excessive diligence by Bogdan Góralski
Excessive diligence almost always brings bad results. I will explain it on two examples that I know well.
The History of Jews is a story of excessive diligence of Jews forced on them by persecution. The Jewish diaspora lasts over two thousand years and during this time Jews experienced persecution mainly from Christians. Jewish communities often had to pay huge amounts of money to their persecutors to avoid persecution. This resulted in the tightening of Jewish law, which allowed for the killing of an inept business man with impunity. This resulted in tremendous solidarity and diligence of Jewish men fighting together for survival in a hostile Christian world. Soon, Jewish communities had enormous wealth gained by hard-working and well-organized Jewish men. The Jews mastered European, especially German, trade and industry. Hitler's rule was directed against Jewish business hegemony in Germany and caused persecution and the Holocaust of the Jews. Excessive diligence and Jewish foresight caused by persecution in the past was the cause of their defeat in Europe in the 20th century. Could Jews have avoided this defeat ??? In my opinion they could.
After the fall of communist rule, free market reforms began in Poland. The state enterprise where I worked and had to find a new job collapsed. I worked in the USA for a year as a construction worker and gained small capital. After returning to Poland, I invested this capital in a company producing and selling simple construction tools, which were generally lacking in Poland at the time. I managed the company called POL-CAT with successes for 13 years and employed many employees. I was forced to work hard because of my daughter's illness. During my business, I came into conflict with Jewish companies from Europe, Russia, the USA and Poland, who wanted to take over my company and use it to conquer the Polish market. The conflict ended in a court case in the 13th Commercial Court in Warsaw, which has not been held for 18 years. If I won in court with my opponents, I would probably get huge compensation for destroying my company.
My opponents wanted to buy my business from me and now they want my children to take over my rights (my wife and I divorced). So they have to kill me first to take over the rights of my company.
So we see that my excessive diligence has brought me a bad fate. Can I reverse it?
Yes I think I can by this project.
Skutki nadmiernej pracowitości
Nadmierna pracowitość prawie zawsze przynosi złe skutki. Wyjaśnię to na dwóch przykładachi które dobrze znam.
Historia Żydów to opowieść o nadmiernej pracowitości Żydów wymuszonej prześladowaniami. Diaspora żydowska trwa ponad dwa tysiące lat i w tym czasie Żydzi doświadczyli prześladowań głównie ze strony chrześcijan. Gminy żydowskie często musiały płacić swoim prześladowcom ogromne haracze aby uniknąć prześladowań. Spowodowało to zaostrzenie żydowskiego prawa, które zezwalało na bezkarne zabicie nieudolnego biznesowo mężczyzny. Spowodowało to ogromną solidarność i pracowitość żydowskich mężczyzn wspólnie walczących o przeżycie we wrogim chrześcijańskim świecie. Wkrótce żydowskie gminy dysponowały ogromnymi bogactwami zdobytymi przez pracowitych i dobrze zorganizowanych żydowskich mężczyzn. Żydzi opanowali europejski, a szczególnie niemiecki, handel i przemysł. Rządy Hitlera były skierowane przeciwko żydowskiej biznesowej hegemonii w Niemczech i spowodowały prześladowania oraz Holokaust Żydów. Nadmierna pracowitość i zapobiegliwość żydowska spowodowana prześladowaniami w przeszłości była przyczyną ich klęski w Europie w XX wieku. Czy Żydzi mogli tej klęski uniknąć??? Moim zdaniem mogli.
Po upadku komunistycznych rządów w Polsce zaczęły się reformy wolnorynkowe. Upadło przedsiębiorstwo państwowe w którym pracowałem i musiałem znaleźć nową pracę. Pracowałem w USA przez rok jako robotnik budowlany i zdobyłem mały kapitał. Po powrocie do Polski kapitał ten zainwestowałem w przedsiębiorstwo produkujące i sprzedające proste narzędzia budowlane, których powszechnie wtedy brakowało w Polsce. Firmę o nazwie POL-CAT prowadziłem z samymi sukcesami przez 13 lat i zatrudniałem wielu pracowników. Byłem zmuszony do nadmiernej pracowitości przez chorobę córki. W trakcie działalności mojej firmy wpadłem w konflikt z żydowskimi przedsiębiorstwami z Europy, Rosji, USA i Polski, które chciały przejąć moją firmę i za jej pomocą opanować rynek polski. Konflikt zakończył się sprawą sądową w XIII Sądzie Gospodarczym w Warszawie, która od 18 lat nie odbyła się ani razu. Gdybym wygrał w sądzie z moimi przeciwnikami dostałbym prawdopodobnie ogromne odszkodowanie za zniszczenie mojej firmy.
Moi przeciwnicy chcieli odkupić moją firmę ode mnie a teraz chcą aby prawa do schedy po mnie przejęły moje dzieci (z żoną mam rozwód). Trzeba zatem mnie zgładzić by przejąć prawa mojej firmy.
Widzimy więc, że moja nadmierna pracowitość przyniosła mi zły los. Czy mogę go odwrócić?
