Possible future Solution 2.0 (with paragraphs)
Thanks for the paragraphs 😉
Strangely enough this misuse of resources is covered nicely in ‘The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist’ by Robert Tressel (??) first book that really changed my life. I think you would really enjoy that if you have not already read it.
I only scanned the replies but Patrick, no need to choose who elects selects positions – natural ability in specific areas will suffice. For example I know some graphic designers who would jump out of the window before handling programming code and vice versa. Plato mentioned related issues in the republic – basically people should only take on positions of responsibiliy only because of their sense of duty not their yearnings for power.
Aha, and once this technology is devised, who programs the code that defines what everyone’s time and effort are worth?
[quote] If you’re a nurse and your neighbor is a high tech farmer, then both
of you have value and skill, so there would be no stopping either of
you from obtaining food and clothing for yourself. There would be
ranking, but remember we are talking about satisfying the needs of
people not being greedy. Think about how many people get screwed over
by the money system. All the victims of mr. Maddoff (who should be burned alive) and
all the countries that have corruption due to money. Think about child
sex trade, human traffic trade, black market trade, drug trade, suicide
because some investor lost money for his his clients, suicide from
gambling, someone killing themselves because their life insurance
policy would provide for their family. Being worried about someone’s
worth should be of no concern as long as they are being a contributor.
Unless you want to keep a money system and live with all those
problems listed above. Money is the root of all evil, we see it
everyday with a blind eye. You can always be robbed of your money
but not your time and effort. [/quote]
Don’t you see that your system is robbing everyone of their money, and putting all control over their time and effort into the hands of whoever the elites that would program these cards are????
We do not have a perfect system, but its orders of magnitude more fair than what you propose. Have you thought of how many people would commit suicide under your system due to how totalitarian it is?
Seriously, think about what you are saying!
[quote] ANYONE CAN ROB YOU OF YOUR MONEY, BUT NO ONE CAN ROB YOU OF YOUR TIME AND EFFORT. [/quote]
Yes, someone can rob you of your time and effrort – the people who program your cards who determine what your time and effort is worth.
Money didn’t create the crash. Fiat money did. There is a profound difference. One is the product of work, the other is a counterfeit product.
You’re barking up the wrong tree.
