Possible future Solution 2.0 (with paragraphs)
WOW, we have that now in the money system but you could be robbed
and killed for your money or all your retirement money lost. I
think you’re barking up the wrong tree, and not thinking. [/quote]
Q1) Are you ever going to tell us who gets to program your cards?
Q2) Have you even watched the Crash Course?
Loved the quote from Einstein. Maybe you have got the problem identified if the problem is money (forced cooperation).
Do other species get cards too?
Don’t get me wrong; what you are doing is brave and you are taking a lot of flack for it. We need more ideas. Blame gets us a dispirited consensus.
Not old visions with new plans but new visions with no plans (after Daniel Quinn).
7 billion people can be wrong, very wrong
I get to program my own card???
OK, let’s say I’m a carpenter. What, do I get to tell the card how every door I produce is worth whatever much food, drink, vacation time, medical care I want?
How much sense does that make?
[quote] Your skill/education level would put you to work on housing
developments. The local computer database you inform you of how many
doors would be needed in a certain area and it has decided that you and
50 other men are qualified to do such work. Then as long as you do your work, then you can have your access to a higher standard of living [/quote]
I will ask this question a third and final time: Who writes the formula that determines how much value my doors are worth???? The computer doesn’t program itself. Who does program it??
I don’t see how this would prevent unemployment. What if 50 doors are needed but there are 100 carpenters who could together make 200 doors? What if nobody needs what you happen to be good at because there is an oversupply in the market?
Since you threw the "straw man" out there for comment, you have to take the lumps. (ouch!)
Your concept, like so many others that have been suggested, fails due to a reality check. You, and all the others, assume an altruistic society will magically develop. Never has – never will. Humans ain’t wired that way, son!
However, kudo’s for trying to come up with an alternative – new idea’s are always welcome here, even if they do get battered about a bit.
