About 3rdWAVElands

All my experiences have culminated into the following vision: History has seen three great waves of change in which entrepreneurial innovation caused a transformation in the face of business that culminated in a great demographic shift. Each of these shifts shook the world to its core. The first two were from hunting and gathering to farming and from farming to industry. The third from industry to information is upon us and the result is the tourist spots of yesterday being transformed into the telecommuting hubs of tomorrow. More specifically there is a coming mass migration of "Connected Class" business owners toward tourist spots where they can live their vacation as they run their business via virtual office. This coming reality is the guiding principle behind a vision I have to see the world become a better place. A large vision that has God's purposes for mankind as its center and will be a long journey with many twists and turns. Nonetheless, two paths have emerged as the starting point for that journey. One is a Social Guide to Property Investment that seeks to generate a forward looking discussion about the concept of property itself and how and why we are charged to protect it. The other is a Business Services company that aspires to coach local business owners on how to serve the "Connected Class" property investors the discussion on the Social Guide will draw. This, by utilizing social, local, and mobile platforms to effectively engage them. Many spiritually minded people look at technology and the world around us and think the end must be near. After actively engaging with the ideas presented on our sites we believe you will come to see: "What the caterpillar sees as the end of life God calls a butterfly" http://www.3rdWAVElands.net http://www.3rdWAVElandsProperties.net http://www.thirdWAVEbiz.net

“We Don’t Need Legislators, We Need Statesmen”


We ask 20 questions surrounding social media, the economy, politics, history and property and how each pertains to wise property investment on our “Social Guide to” page. All designed to promote discussion. On this post the focus is politics. More specifically on self-interest vs. greed and the national debt. With that said, I want to introduce my readers to a Congressional candidate from Southwest Florida that has earned his place in any national discussion along these lines. His name is Byron Donalds and the I found the title of this post on his Twitter Profile. Below is some more information about him from an excerpt on his campaign site. I also share some thoughts of my own based on hearing him speak in person: Continue reading

Who Is More Right The Tea Party Or Occupy? Part 2


"Tea Party or Occupy"In the last post on this series I expounded on the graphic above that I think gives the proper frame for the beginning of a productive discussion concerning some similarities and major differences in regards to the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street movements. They are similar in that they both are outraged by corporate power and an absolute inability to reign it in. Where they differ is on the root cause of the manipulation of regulations to game the system. Occupiers believe that corporations having too much power is the root and Tea Party believes that the central government having too much power is the root.

Leaving major differences in solutions aside I chose to focus on getting down to the root causes of corporate collusion aided by a manipulation of regulations.  In doing so I went back to the year 1913 and three major initiatives that were enacted by the Progressives at the time to reign in corporate Continue reading

Business To Business Social Networking


Light Bulb BusinessSince this is a “social” guide that seeks to extend the discussion on the topics covered on this blog to social media platforms I utilize, I have decided to do more posts containing excerpts from my business to business social networking efforts. This to highlight its importance in the Social Media Age. Below is relevant excerpts from one of the better discussions that relates generally to business, but more specifically, to property management. It was with group manager of a Real Estate Linkedin group.

But first let me give you a little context. I shared a link in the Linkedin group and he sent me a kind and well deserved message about not just sending links to the group and stated his preference that I start or join discussions instead. In short, because of a lack of time I was doing what I would tell others not to do that goes against the grain of the whole idea of having a social guide. I was talking to his group by megaphone not telephone. Anyway, we sent a few messages back and forth about my lack of time and Group Manager’s insistence that the group discussions would benefit me.

To test the waters, I asked him to look over my two websites and give some feedback and in return I would invest some time in the group. It goes without saying since I mentioned him in the beginning that he actually did what one in a million do: He visited both my sites, read enough that I know he spent some quality time there, got back to me in a timely manner, and asked me a few questions that blew through a gap in our message that we thought we had closed on our 3rdWAVElands Property Services site.

After some back and forth on a few messages it finally clicked how to close the gap. Continue reading

“Liberty not License”: A Invitation For Libertarians To Join The GOP


"Join the GOP"I had an interesting question posed to me on Google+ today:

Why NOT be LIBERTARIAN with Gary Johnson for ONE election?! If you decide you DON’T LIKE Freedom, Prosperity and Peace after Four Years, you can always vote for Tyranny, Poverty and War again four years from now!

My response:(excuse any style, spelling or grammar it was just intended to be a comment)

I think think certain aspects of what Gary Johnson stands in the name of liberty are license in the context that John Locke used those terms. The liberty movement says it wants to get back to the Constitution but forgets that a limited state only exists to secure the inalienable rights expounded on in the Declaration of Independence.

2 Ideas That Impacted The History Of The Modern World


Declaration of IndependenceOne of the central tenets of this site is that property investment where property rights are not protected should be avoided at all cost. Nonetheless, for that discussion to take place in its proper frame a little background on the concept of rights in general is most assuredly in order. Furthermore, to bring that discussion into relevant context I think it wise to limit ourselves to the Modern World as influenced by Western Civilization.

Accordingly, I would like to introduce an exceptional essay by Jack Goldstone written for Cato Unbound entitled, “How An Engineering Culture Launched Modernity.” Here is what I feel is the most striking passage with my thoughts on how it relates this topic below:

What I believe is most critical to insist upon is the degree to which Europe itself had to repudiate central elements of its own history and culture Continue reading

Who Has It More Right The Tea Party Or Occupy?


Tea Party vs. OccupyEver wonder why the Tea Party and Occupy movements sound so much alike at times yet at other times they sound so very different? Well I certainly have and despite thousands of Tweets, Google+ Posts, and Facebook comments later I was still a bit confused. That was until I saw the graphic above on Facebook that brought the matter into the proper frame for discussion. A discussion that I hope to generate over several posts on this topic.

The long of the short of this is that it seems that both groups have a huge problem with the power that corporations have gained over our central government. The result is regulations that are favorable to the very entities they are purported to curb. This is nothing new and the solution to it has been debated for years. Each depending on what one considers to be the root of the problem. As the chart above clearly shows, the Tea Party believes it is that the central government is too powerful and Occupy believes that it is that the corporations have too much power.

Who is more right? Continue reading

Can “Indie Capitalism” Restore Free Market Competition?


Keep It LocalI am sure anyone who reads the title to this post will most certainly wonder to themselves, “What is the world is ‘Indie Capitalism'”? I wondered the same today when I came upon the term in a post at Fast Company by Bruce Nussbaum.  Below is the beginning of Nussbaum’s explanation. This is followed by the first of his four reasons why he believes it is the future of capitalism and a few thoughts of my own below the fold:

You won’t learn about it in business school, hear about it from Wall Street, or see it in Palo Alto. But if you spend time in Bushwick, Brooklyn, or on Rivington Street in Manhattan, you just might detect the outlines of an emerging “indie” capitalism. This new form of capitalism is not just about conventional startups and technology and venture capitalists. If you add up all the trends under way today, I believe we are beginning to see the start of something original, and perhaps wonderful. It may prove to be the economic and social antidote to the failed financial capitalism and crony capitalism that no longer delivers economic value in terms of jobs, income, and taxes to the people of this country.
