Inverse Outcome & the Definition of Insanity
Virtually everything we do today … requires less effort and less time than it did when our parents were our age. And yet, we are more stressed, less contented and have less time to ourselves … than virtually any previous generation in recorded history.

Here’s what the Dali Lama has to say:
“It is fascinating. In the West, you have bigger homes, yet smaller families; you have endless conveniences — yet you never seem to have any time. You can travel anywhere in the world, yet you don’t bother to cross the road to meet your neighbours. I don’t think people have become more selfish, but their lives have become easier and that has spoilt them. They have less resilience, they expect more, they constantly compare themselves to others and they have too much choice — which brings no real freedom.”
Wow … the more choice we have, the less free we are. That’s profound. And the easier life gets, the more unsatisfied and discontented we become. Know why? It is because of a little thing called Inverse Outcome™. (Patent pending).
“Inverse Outcome” is when you do something and get a result that is the exact opposite than what you expected. A result that seems to defy all logic and reason.
“Inverse Outcome” is when people rise from starvation and poverty to create the most well-fed societies in the history of mankind, with food stores and fast food outlets on every corner, and new medical disorders pop up called bulimia and anorexia.
“Inverse Outcome” is when you spend 17 years teaching your children your values and morals and then they go to University — are promptly brainwashed — and return as rabid, anti-American, socialist/feminist nutbars. And oh yeah – you are the one paying for University.
“Inverse Outcome” is when we outlaw private health-care and create a wonderful “free” public health-care system that gives poor people the same access to medical care as middle-class and rich people. Then we watch incredulously as poor and middle class people with no family doctor wait months for critical treatment and lay on stretchers in jam-packed hospital corridors – while the rich go to other countries for immediate, state-of-the art treatment.

“Inverse Outcome” is when people rise from illiteracy and poverty to create the most successful, prosperous, comfortable societies in the history of mankind and then develop all these mental disorders relating to stress, depression and anxiety.
“Inverse Outcome” is when you sacrifice throughout life to save for retirement and then find that people who pissed their money away are as well off as you because they get full government pensions while yours is reduced dollar for dollar for any payment you receive from your savings.

“Inverse Outcome” is when you vote for politicians expecting them to keep their promises. OK, that’s not really “Inverse Outcome”. It’s more like “Inverse Intelligence”.
“Inverse Outcome” is when you are a teenage girl and buy into the state influenced idea of radical feminism and sexual equality and then find yourself as a single mother with no idea how to provide for your child.
“Inverse Outcome” is when you form very powerful unions in the three most important companies in North America for the purpose of helping employees; and then make such excessive demands that foreign, non-union (car) companies take all your business away, and you lose your job.
“Inverse Outcome” is when people rise from the subservience of monarchies and colonial landlords to create the most free democratic societies in the history of mankind, and then allow their government to regulate them so severely that permits have to be obtained to cut a limb off a backyard tree, or for kids to sell lemonade on their lawn.
“Inverse Outcome” is when you have an abortion with the expectation that it will not stay in your head for the rest of your life … but it does.

“Inverse Outcome” is when you have an accidental child that you initially regret and she/he turns out to be the one thing that enriches your soul the most.
Yep. It’s the pathology of “Inverse Outcome”. Sort of like Einstein’s definition of Insanity: “doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results”. Both are great examples of how far we have to go before we even begin to understand our selves, our world, and the others that share this world with us. >Source
