Reform

If people are paid too little “working poor” – if work does not pay off anymore – the whole capitalistic free market system is about to fail.

If it is the same income if people stay at home or  or go to work – something fundamental is wrong and it is not the state well fare.

It is a evil combination of big companies and super rich 1% dogging their collective responsibility for society and avoid taxes and paying their workers too little (poverty line is 1000€ after taxes in Germany, minimum wage is 9.35€ before tax per hour.

or in other words:

if extraction / stealing money (also in digital form) in secrecy (cum-ex scandal: banks are fined to pay 400 Million € (aprox. 80 Billion € in taxes are fleeing EU countries EVERY YEAR! (with the help of banks))) pays off  better paid than actually CREATING VALUE (which should be all the free market is about about) – capitalism is a cancer to itself and programmed for self destruction.

The US and the EU should team up (maybe at the UN?) and place trade embargoes on countries that become rich with tax dumping and avoidance – if Trump and and the next president does not take this topic serious – they don’t take justice serious.

It is rather a very unsustainable way of finance and economics that will drive voters towards more radical parties (extreme right wing minister could only be prevented in economically weak east Germany (former DDR) by intervention from Merkel).

Taz: Macron now wants to “flexibilize” wages in France by eliminating collective agreements for entire industries, but only agreements for individual companies.

Flassbeck: “This is exactly the wrong policy and a blind copy of the German guidelines.

France would have to reduce its wages by about -20% in order to catch up with Germany.

But this is not possible because domestic demand in France would collapse and unemployment would rise dramatically.

Instead, German wages would have to rise by about +5% annually, over many years. Only then will there be a Chance to save Europe.

If people are paid NUTHIN’ they can’t buy NUTHIN’ and the whole fucked up system collapses.

Just look at Greece and it’s devastated economy.

Why is this so hard to understand? X-D

This is not a joke and I am NOT Einstein.

Loneliness is a modern disease.

It is know even studied by scientists: “The Burden of Loneliness”

“Why togetherness and caring for each other is essential for us

“The most frequent cause of death is neither cancer nor cardiovascular diseases.

Most people die of loneliness.

The renowned German psychiatrist Dr. Manfred Spitzer describes this frequently unrecognized condition as “painful, contagious and deadly.”

or in other words: why are so many people single?

(in cities up to 50%)

or in other words: why do people get dogs instead of babies?

imho: because the way we life is not healthy.

  • the way we life is concentrates around “what is more efficient/what does capitalism need to make bucks”?

instead of:

  • what do humans need in order to survive in a happy manner and be symbiotic with other species and the balance of nature
  • The houses we build are efficient but not healthy for us:
    • In an ideal world – everyone had a little house
      • not far from all other houses
      • with a garden of at least 1000m2 that everyone would use for organic farming at least 50% of what they eat
      • the surpluss of the harvests are shared automatically – because can eat 30 lettuce a day.
      • If people had no running water – they would have to “run” themselves to village / city centers to fetch it
        • what an inefficient (takes a lot of time) and hard (water is heavy) task!
        • BUT: humans would be forced to spend time with each other, get to know each other, interact with each other, talk to each other, ask questions, become curios about each other.

another example: If there is a lot of infrastructure for bikes in a city – people will use the bike more often (ask city planners in the Netherlands and in Denmark).

So is the infrastructure designed and build centered around the question: What do humans need for a happy life?

What do people need to survive happy and sustainably?

Fully automating everything does not seem to be the answer.

the highly educated get less babies

because they are toooooo busy i guess.

So this how capitalism and workoholism “automatically” makes mankind DUMB SYSTEMATICALLY? (bet TV ads kill more brain cells than alcohol, if you feel too intelligent… get drunk! X-D)

Einstein was a Genius – he was able to run experiments in his brain like in a computer simulator (this video says, his brain had +17% more neurons … by the way… humans have ~100 billion brain cells / neurons and the method of counting them is DISGUSTING X-D) – but just as Sheldon Cooper – he had a lack of social skills.

The sad story is: “REAL” Sheldon Coopers with a Ph.D. in Physics DO  EXIST!

NOBODY wants to move in with them or be friends, because (my particular friend) has an unimaginable unawareness of his egoisms and lack of social skills.

So in real life Sheldon Cooper would have almost no friends and live a very sad and lonely life.

That Einstein bastard got more lucky, because of all his fame.

“Einstein always felt out of place at social gatherings and with friends and family. He treated his first wife Mileva Maric very poorly and flaunted his many affairs.”

the Dunning-Kruger Effect:

…It’s a psychological rule that states:

  • it’s the most incompetent who are the most confident
    • (GREAT! this explains the fail state of our western democracies in one sentence! (but also Socrates: democracy only works as well as the educational system)
  • while the intelligent ones doubt their own abilities
  • Put simply:
    • dumb people are too dumb to know how dumb they are
      • ah gosh… we all gonna die. Mankind is a slow learner. But the internet (would it be uncensored (without fake news monopolies) cheap (no PRIVATE MONOPOLIES!) easy to access and cost effective, can act as a “educate each other” tool, it is the century of Open informations!
      • Share your results with the world!
    • Smart people are clever enough to know how much they don’t know

or as Socrates said: “i know, that (compared to all that can be known) i know nothing” (source)

also would add:

  • children want to succeed
  • no child is born that says: “i want to be a failure”
  • children are born with curiosity in mind
    • school stuffs them with massive amounts of “test and forget” useless informations – in the end – not much curiosity is left
      • no questions are being asked
      • learning stops

this private corporatism “the planet is owned by the highest bidder” (who has access (!) to the cheapest loan of a private bank) is the true devil of our times.

Selfishness and greed are the exact opposite of love – and might kill all of mankind.

Climatechange is just a sideffect of that – it is just more profitable to destroy the planet and the climate – than to restore the balance – this only can end deadly.

Survey: Capitalism ‘doing more harm than good,’ and technology is ‘out of control’

  • real sense of unfairness
    • According to Edelman, 56% of respondents question capitalism as it exists today. The survey also found that 78% of respondents agreed with the statement that “regular people struggle just to pay their bills as elites get richer than they deserve.”

  • “the system is not working for most people”

Wealth and income inequality has reached, as it did then (1920s), a Dimension in which the power of the rich and the blackmail of democratically elected politicians become so great that democracy threatens to become a Farce.

homo economicus – update to status quo – welcome to the 20s (2020) – where are we?

when the future is supposed to look like this:

WE NEED A POSITIVE VISION FOR THE FUTURE!
