Applied Evolution

Applied Evolution

Why do people behave the way they do and what can be done about it? Can we use this information to “save the world”? In this modest book I intend to completely answer these questions, and confidently move us forward together in the right direction. This book, Applied Evolution – Leveraging Natural Selection and Human Behavior for Peace, is the second in a series of three books I intend to complete, each with the goal of changing the world from its own perspective. My first book, “Make Millions and Make Change!”, takes a business perspective, this second book takes a behavioral and genetic approach to changing the world, and my third book will be called “Fixing Government”, which will document best practices for much better public servitude and lawmaking, and its surrounding infrastructure and bureaucracies accordingly. Each book will have uniquely powerful and potent ideas for global prosperity and happiness; and when combined their power will compound, making us ready for anything including being unstoppable tools for social good. The purpose of this book is to get everyone focused on empirical truths that guide our world, including facts of science, math, history, and genetics. Once we truly focus on reality, we can better control our interconnected global society, and push forward with a positive proactive narrative to our families benefit; for your children’s better future; a more peaceful, healthy and prosperous world. From a behavioral perspective, the main issues we will address that are currently suppressing world peace and prosperity are fear, greed and envy which follow basic precepts of human behavior and natural selection that we can readily identify. In fact, abhorrent behaviors of people are mostly like those of animals in the jungle, and cavemen from ancient caves, although they are being perpetuated by seemingly rational functioning individuals. Those supposedly rational people actually have a “subconscious” drive which is inaccessible by definition, indicating they are lacking appropriate consciousness and self-actualization when they act out. Again by definition, we are saying there are abhorrent people with abhorrent behaviors that are ostensibly “wrong” within their thinking. Knowing and being able to transmit the truth, we will change them, documenting and delivering long term mutual benefit. Humans are innately good, not evil, and generally want to improve themselves and the world. Sometimes it may seem hard to tell. But “goodness” is the very reason we have so much peace, prosperity,...

Book Reviews

“Most especially thanks for giving us both your book “MakeMillions.com”. I read it from cover to cover on the flight to Tokyo and found it incredibly inspiring – in fact it is now covered with highlighted passages and post it notes. I have sent the ISBN ref to a number of friends as a recommendation so, apart from them having the opportunity to read it, they can be inspired to help the helpless by choosing a charity or cause that can make a real difference in the world.” -Robert Epstone on behalf of The Click Fund   “I just finished your first book (and will be buying your second)…Your advice has been extremely helpful for both my business and personal life…” -Jim Sickorez   “Thanks for the wonderful book ‘MakeMillions.Com’. I don’t really care if i become a millionaire or not BUT after reading this book i am happy that i have great guidelines that can lead me to a well-balanced successful life. The experience of reading this book was more like reading some wonderful quotations. Every paragraph is like a wonderful quotation that if followed can easily lead to success and prosperity!” -Ali Ibrahim   “I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised at how well this book addressed my personal goal, which is to develop a business that supports me while I support my community. This is no get rich scheme, but a no nonsense guide for moral people to succeed at what they love and help others while they do it. Mike’s proven success in today’s business world plus his association with grassroots.org are recommendation enough to read what he has to say, but the proof was in the pudding. “Mike carefully outlines the essential elements for a successful business venture as well as explaining more unfamiliar concepts in accessible language. From branding and business plans to implementation and exceeding your competitors, he covers it all. When appropriate, he refers you to other well-respected sources of information on a given subject to augment what he covers. Although he gives enough information to grasp a solid understanding, I appreciate the recommended resources for those areas I want to delve into deeper. “Simple to use and well-written, this is a book I will come back to often. It’s a carry-in-your-back-pocket type book that will end up dog-eared and well-worn by anyone serious about pursuing a business model that...
