Socrates knew: Democracy only work with well educated people,

destroying education means destroying democracy

Socrates was killed by a democratic process – involving 500 randomly chosen Athens (obviously badly educated)

 

Countries with top education:

  • Norway (spending #4 by %GDP)
  • Finland (spending #9 by %GDP)
    • kids start school at year 7 or even 8
    • 10min of homework
    • stop teaching to standardized tests (have this in Germany as well…)

(Thanks Mr Moore! For your very educational movies 🙂

The Finland Phenomenon: The Best Education System:

Those countries have cut funding of education:

  • USA (ranks #19 in the world by spending % of GDP for education and more cuts to come:
  • Germany (ranks #35 in the world by spending % of GDP for education)
    • the teachers: “there are not enough teachers” and it is true Norway and Finland are better at PISA and have more teachers per student and spend more on education. (rank #4 and #9)
    • for a country with this economy/export revenues it is simply a UNDERFUNDED CATASTROPHE and there is no excuse to not spend less than Norway and Finland.
    • (budget is increasing but it is still little)
    • also Universities are experiencing budget cuts and are WAY TOO MUCH dependent on external private sponsors thus producing biased science – not good.
    • what is very very bad in German schools is: no teamwork
      • there is a lot of competition among students to be “the top 10 best”
      • instead of focusing on learning useful broad horizon knowledge process
      • instead of 1teacher (dictator) vs 30kids (worthless material) learning testing forgetting random bullshit “knowledge bulimia”
      • they should reserve time for students to teach students
        • this would be way more effective because students can explain things in their own words from a different angle making more students understand the subject – this is thought to be “inefficient” but it is NOT.
  • Brazil: (ranks pretty good #7 in spending for education budget in % of GDP), Bolsonaro seems to not like it and wants to cut it.

Demagogue = Populist

 

A demagogue /ˈdɛməɡɒɡ/ (from Greek δημαγωγός, a popular leader, a leader of a mob, from δῆμος, people, populace, the commons + ἀγωγός leading, leader)[1] or rabble-rouser[2][3] is a leader who gains popularity in a democracy by exploiting prejudice and ignorance among the common people, whipping up the passions of the crowd and shutting down reasoned deliberation.[1][4] Demagogues overturn established norms of political conduct, or promise or threaten to do so.[5]

Historian Reinhard Luthin defined demagogue thus: “What is a demagogue? He is a politician skilled in oratory, flattery and invective; evasive in discussing vital issues; promising everything to everybody; appealing to the passions rather than the reason of the public; and arousing racial, religious, and class prejudices—a man whose lust for power without recourse to principle leads him to seek to become a master of the masses. He has for centuries practiced his profession of ‘man of the people’. He is a product of a political tradition nearly as old as western civilization itself.”[6]

Demagogues have appeared in democracies since ancient Athens. They exploit a fundamental weakness in democracy: because ultimate power is held by the people, it is possible for the people to give that power to someone who appeals to the lowest common denominator of a large segment of the population.[7] Demagogues usually advocate immediate, forceful action to address a national crisis while accusing moderate and thoughtful opponents of weakness or disloyalty.

the silent way to revolutionize:

mankind (= aka the world) can be a growing awareness of what lifestyle changes are needed to be done in order to allow a sustainable future and secure the survival of mankind.

You do not have to kill anyone for this – a little boring – changing your own lifestyle – bit by bit – step by step.

growing vegetables yourself (of course needs a piece of land? where to get it form? you will have to fight hard for it, this is where violence probably occurs) but also studying science and developing technology that allows humans to travel to distant planets and settle there – would be such thing.

Millennials will have a hard time just to keep the living standard of their parents. (most won’t)

a strong middle-class was the basement of the Western Economy – it has been sucked out.

I blame the utterly unsustainable nature of unlimited free-trade capitalism and THE BANKS (Central and Private) for it.

  • the current monetary debt-money-by-private-banks-system is a unsustainable catastrophe
  • monopolies do not work forever

Unlimited (no limit in the amount of wealth a single individual can acquire, like possess a million houses or the whole planet?) to form monopolies = trade in balance (dependencies on things people need to survive: energy, medicine, food/seeds, you name it) – thus the bigger companies get even bigger (right now you can observe a lot of mergers – that is exactly that).

Merge – merge – acquire – until there are only one bank, one oil company, one electricity company, one car company building cars (without jobs, only robots) for the whole planet – but not selling them cheap.

Profit creation without job creation + falling wages?

With what income are people supposed to buy these cars?

More private household debt ain’t going to cut it.

It is the dilemma of in balance by monopolies – it just does not work or is massively unsustainable (works only short term) – the same with trade in balances (it is exactly the same as in-debt house holds but on a nation level).

Yes – you can create more money and give it to the poor to avoid revolution and riots – but we also need sustainable role model lifestyles:

  • generating your own electricity (learning how to setup solar power systems and batteries)
  • grow your own food
  • learn how to recycle your waste
  • learn how to build stuff yourself

… all of this is a lot of work but greatly REDUCES your trade-deficit = dependency on monopolies – why not praise it with a little extra money from the state?

Great, thanks all involved, what now?

evolution or revolution?

We will have to change the way we live (aka “The World”) – the old ways ain’t workin’ no more.

Millennials, also known as Generation Y or Gen Y, are the demographic cohort following Generation X and preceding Generation Z. Researchers and popular media typically use the early 1980s as starting birth years and the mid-1990s to early 2000s as ending birth years. Millennials are sometimes referred to as “echo boomers” due to a major surge in birth rates in the 1980s and 1990s, and because millennials are often the children of the baby boomers.”

Wie könnte ein Nachhaltiges Geldsystem aussehen?
(scroll down for english)
  • Im Idealfall profitiert der der tatsächlich Gutes denkt und tut und wer schlechtes im Sinn hat geht pleite
  • Welches dem Nachhaltigen Überleben der Menschheit auf diesem wunderschönen blauen Bowlingball dient
  • Welches dem Frieden dient
Reicht es einfach zu sagen: +3% p.a. Staatsverschuldung und fertig?
Scheinbar würde die EZB eher den Staat als private Banken pleite gehen lassen.
Aufgabe des Staates muss (auch) sein:
  • alle über-lebenswichtigen Technologien am laufen zu halten/selbst zu entwickeln
    • Landwirtschaft:
      • Jeder der seine eigenen Lebensmittel anbauen möchte, kann auf Antrag ein Stück Land in seiner Nähe bekommen, bekommt zusätzlich noch einen finanziellen einen Bonus?
    •  Sicherheit
      • Man sollte nicht Privaten Firmen die Kompletten Rüstungsausgaben überweisen (es wird niemals genug sein), der Staat selbst muss seine eigenen Rüstungs-Firmen haben welche mit privaten Konkurrieren können-wollen.
      • Keine Private-Sicherheit und Privat-Armeen wie in USA
    • Energie: Green New Deal für ganz Europa?
    • Bildung
      • Warum wird gerade hier gespart das es raucht und kein Beispiel an Skandinavischen Ländern genommen? Wirklich SKANDALÖS.
    • Gesundheitssystem
      • Scheinbar sind wir hier NOCH das Land der Seeligen, aber es wird fleißig weiter Privatisiert und Monopolisiert, bald kauft Goldman Sachs alle Krankenhäuser Deutschlands.
      • Kuba ist viel günstiger da präventiver
      • Kanada steht besser da als USA (weniger Privatisierung)
    • Kommunikation
      • bei Stromausfall sollte wenigstens das Haus eigene Festnetz-Telefon noch funktionieren, was auch schon mal der Fall war (Netzspeisung) wurde aber “wegrationalisiert”.
    • Finanzwesen
      • ein Großteil elektronisch auch die Digitale Infrastruktur?
      • Schulden? Warum sind die psychologischen Effekte von Schulden überhaupt “wichtig”? (Psychologisch?)
        • Wie würde eine Welt aussehen in der Schulden nicht mehr das Problem sind?
        • Es kann nicht sein, dass sich Deutsche Politiker Gedanken über den Italienischen oder Griechischen Staatshaushalt machen müssen, United States of Europe – die EU und der Euro ist nicht Europa sondern ein Konstrukt ohne welches Europa auch überleben kann, lieber eine Vielfalt an Währungen als eine Monokultur. (Bernard Lietaer wäre der gleichen Meinung)
    • Transport
      • Straßen, Schienen, ELEKTRO LADESLÄULEN! (es kann scheinbar aufgrund von Problemen mit dem Eichamt nicht nach kWh abgerechnet werden und es gibt keine bundesweit einheitliche Lade-Infrastruktur)
      • Mercedes hat DOCH ein Wasserstoffauto auf dem Markt, aber die Infrastruktur fehlt.
    • Innovation und Forschung:

Competition is good, but having only competition is not good” (Bernhard Lietaer, 2015)

What could a sustainable monetary system look like?

Ideally, the one who actually thinks and does good profits and the one that thinks and does bad will have to pay.

  • that ensures sustainable survival of humanity on this beautiful blue bowling ball
  • serves peace not wa

is it easy to say: no more than +3% p. a. public debt and thats it?

Do you have to force the central Bank to buy government bonds directly from the government (not just from private banks)? (Federal Bank of Canada)apparently, the ECB would let the state go bankrupt rather than private banks.

The task of the state must be (also): all over-to keep vital technologies running/to develop themselves

  • Agriculture: anyone who wants to grow their own food can, on request, get a piece of Land near him, additionally gets a financial Bonus?
  • Security: the state should not transfer private firms the complete arms expenditure (it will never be enough), the state itself must have its own arms firms which can compete with private-want.
  • No Private security and private armies as in US
  • Energy: Green new Deal for the whole of Europe?
  • Education is being saved right here that it smokes and no example taken of Scandinavian countries? Really SCANDALOUS.
  • Healthcare: We are still the country of the blessed here, but it is diligently further privatised and monopolized, soon Goldman Sachs buys all hospitals in Germany.
    • Cuba is much cheaper because preventative verkanada is better than USA (less privatization)
  • communication: in the event of power failure, at least the House’s own fixed telephone should still work, which was also the case (mains supply) but was “rationalized”.
  • Financial services is a major part of the digital infrastructure, too, electronically?
  • Debt? Why are the psychological effects of debt “important”at all? (Psychologically?)What would a world look like in debt is no longer the Problem?
  • WTF!?: German politicians have to worry about the Italian, or the Greek national budget, the “United States of Europe” – the EU and the Euro is not Europe, but a construct without it Europe was able to survive before it, a variety of currencies is better than a mono-culture. (Bernard Lietaer would be of the same opinion)
  • transport: roads, rails, electric charging infrastructure! nationwide uniform charging infrastructure!
  • Mercedes has a hydrogen car on the market, but the infrastructure is missing.
  • Innovation and research: Cuba has developed a “vaccine” against lung cancer-which at least slows growth or prevents new generation – it’s funny that the democratically-minded Western capitalism societies can’t do that.
  • It must again be attractive and” interesting ” to want to become self-employed with his own idea.
  • In this case, a Kickstarter-like Funding Platform for good ideas would have to be created, where the state also participates?
  • Competition is good, but having only competition is not good” (Bernhard Lietaer, 2015)
