Changing the World Views

How Mastering Macroeconomics and Climate Change Created Kudos and Backlash

My academic work creating a perfect science-like model of economic growth proves that military spending is the biggest impediment to a powerful nation’s economic growth.  That in turn leads to my new defense strategy requiring a nation to minimize military spending or fall into decline that will inevitably be eclipsed by another power.  Many falsely assume this decline to be inevitable, when in fact it is the result of prolonged over-militarization.  The Norwegian Nobel Committee’s failure to recognize this new reality of science only delays, it does not stop, the inevitable recognition that excessive militarization is self-poisoning of a society.  It does not stop the fact that huge stock market gains are possible following the moves of the military industrial complex better and recognizing the Great Lakes states region moves in the opposite direction of the military budget.  That is because military spending drains key science and capital resources away from civilian manufacturing industries that can be restored by reducing the military budget.  Even the military will benefit from initial lowering, because that results in a better future for them and the society around them as the new high growth glide path “tide lifts even the military boat” ever higher faster.

History of Campaigning to Change the World

My campaign to change the world began with a brochure with a bar chart by Ruth Sivard in 1983.  I took it to the walls of legislative workspace of the 1983 Oregon legislative session with blown up copies of that bar chart.  Finding that in my files after the 1985 Oregon legislative session, I realized the world was ignoring her great work, so I began to test it.  My tests lead to the first presentation of material in December 1985 to the Lane County Commissioners, including Jerry Rust who offered to submit my material to the Pulitzer Prize committee back then and in 2016 submitted my first nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.  Then Frank Arundel offered me his MacIntosh to complete the first edition of “Peace Economics” in 1986 which I extensively footnoted unlike these blogs.  That remains my clearest and most convincing work of the Economic Model that results from the nonproductive nature of military spending.  PRIO, the “Journal of Peace Research” in Oslo Norway where the Nobel Prize is awarded, asked me to submit an article, but I did not know how to, so I ignored them.  I taught three academic years my Peace Economics course from 1987 to 1989 at the University of Oregon.  My enrollment for a Doctorate in Economics at U.O. ended in my withdrawal due to the fact my professors agreed with me that military spending was non-productive, yet it was not in the model we were expected to study for the first year.  Frustrated at the University, I turned to being a monthly columnist 1989-1997 with Peter Bergel’s Oregon PeaceWorker which had a circulation of 10,000.  Soon all the Democratic Congresspersons knew of my work and Peter DeFazio asked me to write a piece for him to read on the floor of the House, but I was intimidated once more, fearing I might be too critical for a political body like that.  Then Richard Schneider of Radio for Peace International asked me to offer a University of the Air shortwave radio course in 1997 until 2004 when RFPI folded.

The New Campaign

Having met a professor at an anti-war rally in 2003, she later helped me find a new Doctoral Program without the obstinacy of Economics.  From 2006 to 2009 I completed the Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Madison, Wisconsin’s Edgewood College, next to the Edgewood High School I once graduated from and earned the first of many subsequent listings in Marquis Who’s Who I am listed in, later including America and World.  My day job for many years had been as a CPA working for my father, but now I could finally get on with my real life’s work establishing the new scientific economic theory no one in the field of economics even thought was possible.  Economists and Accountants don’t have the scientific training of an engineer, my first degree, so I knew the only way was to advance my ideas to academics and the public until the anticipated foot dragging of economists was overcome.  To that end, I turned to blogging press releases on, recommended by an author I had read.  I now have 119,000 views on over a four year period, 5443 views on, 5014 views on, and about 10,000 views on which has links to all the other detailed websites and is the best place to start.

Favorites of the Press shows me constant updates I check daily for the most current 50 press releases sent out to their list of 7000.  Of those who have left the 50 list, but remain on access to site visitors, I update those results once a year.  The full lists ranked by both views and chronologically are at the link at the bottom of this page.  The most popular old releases in the last year are, in rank order of views this last year, in parentheses (all time total), and date:

Predictions 200 (1067) 8-26-14, Global Citizen 190 (1289)     6-28-14, Walker Work Dignity 154 (722) 2-28-15, Politician in Eugene 151 (789) 5-14-14, Scientific Revolution 142 (687) 12-21-14, Nepal Chile 127 (595) 4-28-15, Grandpa Horicon Marsh 121 (695) 3-1-14, Elections Plus 114 (553) 11-13-14, Military Terror Policing 101 (1222) 8-17-14, Modern Feudalism 99 (863) 2-21-15, Religion and Empire 99 (795) 1-3-15, Heat Hurts 99 (652) 9-8-14, Baltimore Riot 97 (613) 5-2-15.

Favorites of the Academics lists my 72 papers, including seven peer reviewed articles, several six per page power point conference presentations, many chapters of my unpublished book based on the Radio for Peace International course, the most important Defense Strategy and Economic Model chapters of “Peace Economics”, and many special papers on key topics old and new.  These are ranked by downloads as a marker of serious interest in the link at the end of this article. Unfortunately, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has focused only on the superficial press releases and not enough on this academic papers section.  The most important work of all is the 1986 Economic Model and the 1986 Defense Strategy chapters from “Peace Economics” worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize.  The Climate War Cycle power point from 7-20-13 World Future Society presentation and the Weather Cycle paper document the 54 year cycle work that is worthy of the Nobel Physics Prize.  Both of these together are worthy of the Nobel Economics Prize.  Alas for me, the world is full of very slow learners. The ranked lists of state, country, and topics are all shown in the link at the bottom of this page.  This is my best source for people and places interested in my work, and show an evolution from mainly US interest, to mainly British Empire interest among the foreign interest, to strong global acceptance of my work beyond the British Empire countries including more US and worldwide gamers from the Gary Gygax and Dungeons and Dragons crowd.

Favorites of the Mostly Political Friends and Public is where I put all my press releases, and it allows typos to be corrected so it is the best version of my press releases and includes some excellent work just before I started with in October 2013 including the first interest by the Pentagon and the CIA in my work. This general list to the public and my mostly political friends has very different priorities than the other two.  Much of this comes from referrals.  Here are the 16 most interesting articles according to the common folk out there, in rank order of views:

1133 Scientific Revolution Facts (Thomas Kuhn), 114 “Where to Invade Next” (Michael Moore), 104 Wargaming with Gary Gygax, 92 Game Master Gygax History, 70 Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, 58 Politician in Eugene Oregon, 53 History US Military Economy, 51 The New Weimar Republic, 47 Are Chili and Nepal Related?, 47 Modern Stages of Empire, 43 Scott Walker of Wisconsin, 42 To Hillary Clinton Critics, 40 Paris Terror, Who Gains?, 40 CIA Presidents:  Obama Clinton, 38 Baltimore Riot the New Watts, 38 Odds on Nobel Peace Prize.

Nobel Peace Year Highlights

Saturday October 14th 8:30am at the ISSS-ISAC conference at American University in Washington DC I will be presenting my “low military is the best defense strategy”, a key concept in reducing military spending world wide, and a key reason to award the Peace Prize.

In the year between Nobel Peace Prize Awards I’ve had a very good year.  Starting with two entries in the “SAGE Encyclopedia of War – Social Science Edition” released online October 12, 2016.  That event pushed my viewings overseas into orbit with about three times as much response internationally in the year since then while interest domestically in the United States stayed about the same as before.  In addition, downloads set new records five times this last year.  The encyclopedia articles boosted downloads to new levels far in excess of the previous record of 34 for “Summary”.   The “SAGE Political Economy of War” reached 50 downloads after the October release.  “Military Economy Direct 11” reached 56 downloads after the March release followed by “Dear Future US President” with 87 after the May release, then “History of Gary Gygax and War Economy” released in June had 129 downloads, and finally “Military Complete Geography” released in August has just reached 159 downloads.  That’s five new records in one year.  My work has just hit a new level of growing international acceptance this year, setting those new records in downloads.  There are a variety of other surprises on my websites and in the news that give me encouragement.

Academia Recommendation

My “SAGE Military Keynesianism” encyclopedia entry was RECOMMENDED by Professor Aruwa, Suleiman A.S. on January 12, 2017.  The good professor was once the Finance Minister in the Nigerian Government and has over ONE MILLION VIEWS of his website.  He has 22 books and 59 papers on his website.  He is in the top 0.5% on Academia with an author rank of 1.5.  Thanks to his recommendation I now have an author rank of 1.1 and on a twelve month basis I’m now in the top 0.8% for my annual views and top 2% on monthly views.  My total downloads this year of 495 include the 173 in the last month, mostly 158 from “Military Complete Geography.”

Norwegian Nobel Committee

Viewing the last twenty-four releases in a row just occurred about 2:30pm September 23, 2017,  Oslo Norway time.  This is probably the Nobel Committee because the last time that long a streak of consecutive views happened was at 9am Norwegian time the day after nominations closed in 2016.  This year one of my nominators received an acknowledgement from the committee last Spring 2017.  So Jim Murphy’s ranking my chances as 31st is probably an underestimate of my chances.  I’m on a list of 1500 peacemakers all time, online, that includes Barack Obama born one year later according to the list.  It mentions my “Dr. Peace” name and my attendance and presentation at the one hundred year anniversary of the Hague Peace Conference in 1999.  It does not include the many peace and international groups I’ve been involved with over the years, see my Resume paper.

Hurricane and Volcano Cycle Evidence

Giant Indonesian Bali volcano Agung, category 5 volcano in 1963 is predicted to erupt any day now for the first time in 54 years, a perfect fit for the 54 year cycle.  Just in the last month, two category 4 hurricanes landed in the United States for the first time in 166 years, since 1851, which is three 54 year cycles plus 4 years.  Jacksonville Florida had record flooding this year exceeding the old record in 1846, three 54 year cycles plus nine years.  Puerto Rico hit by category five hurricane Maria exceeds the 1928 hurricane that last hit Puerto Rico, a third hurricane of category four plus hitting the United States territory this year.  This is an 81 year fit of three 27 year cycles, missing by 8 years.

Other Highlights This Year

Presenting at the Telos Institute for the first time this last January was a highlight as the main speaker took great interest in my work.  Then getting back to my wargaming roots after 43 years since I attended the first seven Gen Con conventions.  I had not seen my old friend Gary Gygax since the first year of his Dungeons and Dragons sales.  I saw his son Ernest Gygax at the ninth Gary Con in Lake Geneva after his death.  His son told me he talked about me all the time.  We were two leading lights in the International Federation of Wargaming from 1966 to 1974, where he constantly and I occasionally published.  I was the top rated player in the IFW and beat Gary in the only game ever directly between us.  I played a prototype of D & D on the porch of Gary’s home once.  Then as I moved West, he offered to sell my old games at the convention for a couple years.  That was the last we corresponded, as I got into graduate school and then politics 2000 miles away.  When I returned 43 years later, I found out I was a Legend of Wargaming, included in the book “Playing the Game” by Jon Peterson.  Then I found out my niece was at Gen Con 50 also.  It’s been very emotional.  I was finally allowed to present at the UW Madison Chaos Seminar on August 22 about my empire theory.  The reception was warm and many were very interested with many questions that feed into my personal strength, answering questions.


Strange pattern on my website might indicate Nobel is double checking me out right now, Saturday afternoon 9-23-17 about 2pm Oslo time, and Monday evening 9-25-17 between 8pm and midnight, someone(s) read all 24 press releases since last Christmas.  The Norwegian Nobel Committee reportedly chooses in August according to Jim Murphy, announces October 6 Friday.  Since both days are the same 24 in a row, it’s hard to imagine that as anything but a double check by two of the five Norwegian politicians that make the decision. The Nobel Peace Prize will be announced Friday 6 October, 11:00 a.m. Norway time (4am Madison time CDT).
