What is “Gravity Theory”?
A theory of human nature attempts to explain the motivation behind human decisions and behavior. Since the formation of the American Psychological Association (APA) in 1892, a dozen or so substantive theories have been proposed. At best, only one can be correct. What if government adopted the wrong theory? What if Congress has misunderstood what motivates citizens to choose empowering behavior?
The importance of understanding the motivation behind
human decisions and behavior
Fact: Public programs are fashioned according to some theory of human nature. If public programs are designed according to the wrong theory, citizens will choose behavior that is destructive personally, and social problems will become broader and deeper over time.
Fact: Only if public programs are designed according to the correct theory of human nature will citizens choose empowering behavior, resolving social problems.
Conclusion: Society can succeed and flourish only if government (1) understands how human beings are motivated and (2) fashions public programs accordingly, causing citizens to choose empowering behavior and improve their condition. If government fashions social programs with the wrong theory of human nature, social problems will grow and metastasize until society fails.
For over 70 years, Congress has adopted and applied “Spring Theory” when fashioning public programs. According to “Spring Theory,” human beings are predisposed to perform admirably (“spring up”). If human beings don't “spring up,” it is because something is holding them back and down.
Although there are many variations of “Spring Theory,” all are based on the assumption the burdens of society weigh on citizens, compressing the internal human spring until citizens are pushed down to a level where they perform poorly.
All variations of “Spring Theory” call for government to alleviate the burdens of society that are supposedly holding citizens back and down. It is assumed human beings would choose empowering behavior (“spring up”) if not for social hindrances.
A Discovery in Science — The Awakening of the Human Species!
A breakthrough in understanding how emotions work reveals “Spring Theory” is wrong and “Gravity Theory” is correct. The label “Gravity Theory” suggests nature affects human beings as the force of gravity affects water. Just as water does not move upward, human beings are not inclined to elevate. Like water, human beings are predisposed to gravitate to the lowest level.
According to “Gravity Theory,” an internal human spring does not exist. If human beings elevate and perform admirably, it is only to resolve discomfort. The ills of society do not cause human beings to perform poorly, and removing social ills will prove counterproductive if citizens are made comfortable.
The way to resolve social problems is to remove hindrances to success without making citizens comfortable. Citizens will perform admirably only to escape their discomfort. For a detailed explanation of “Gravity Theory,” watch the video.
