Filibuster, Filimuster, Filitruster

Does the senate of your mind have a filibuster? I sure hope so. The mind’s filibuster is what I call thinking.

On how many votes does your mind command mouth to speak or body to move? If your upper chamber has 100 senators, do you require just a bare majority of 51 votes to take action? I would think that at least a simple majority would be required. Or do you require 60 votes like the U.S. Senate? Or even more?

I have heard of something called the 99 percent doctrine, favored by many billionaires of note. This doctrine holds that you should reject 99 percent of the ideas you hear, so that you take on only the projectskkk with the greatest odds of success. 

But I wonder if the 99 percent doctrine could be restated as requiring 99 votes in the senate of your mind to take action on something heavy.

That would mean that today’s billionaires of note require 99 votes to end a filibuster in the senate of their minds. 

Behold! we sort all humanity into three groups based on the number of votes to end a filibuster in the senate of their minds: 

  • 51 votes out of 100
  • 60 votes out of 100
  • 99 votes out of 100

Into which of the groups would you put the people you know? Into which one of the groups would you like to be YOURSELF?

What do your groups look like? Where are the people you would consider MORE successful? And where are the people you would consider LESS successful? Don’t worry. I won’t ask to see your groups if you don’t ask to see mine.

In which group would you like to place your family? Your business? 

In which group would you like to place your town, your city?

Your country?

Your planet?
