Economics is the application, and the study of the application of monetization as a method of perpetually allowing everyone to benefit from the efforts of all others. Its environment requires clarity. Part of that clarity is its only two rules. The first, treat others as you would want to be treated, if your positions were reversed; just, be kind. The second, respect and revere the fragility, and the awesomeness of our universe; which is our inheritance, and our responsibility.
Money is not property. It is our heritage. Paid for with blood, sweat, and tears, it is the monetization of history at our disposal. For our good, or for our demise, it will be applied to our lives, and passed on to our children, and our children’s children. What we inherited, was not all good, We will pay for our forefathers‘ sins, and our children will pay for ours, but we have the opportunity to propel our individual and collective selves in a good direction.
People are totally dependent on others for their survival. Each article of clothing, each morsel of food comes from the labor, the planning, the investment, and the cooperation of many people, hundreds.
Because of our total dependence on each other for survival. The human characteristics that are predominant in our ability to survive are not strength, ferocity, or cleverness. They are kindness, cooperativeness, focus and perseverance.
Economics is like gravity. It is the levitating force that is exerted on humankind when they work, and care for each other. Money increases the levitating force positively, or negatively. Kindness is the economic switch. When it is on we are economically competent. Turned off, we are incompetent.
Our individual heritage left some of us starving, and some of us embattled. A few are rich, and many poor. Some are capable. Many are vulnerable, but as a people we were left automobiles, toilets, computers, atomic bombs, washing machines, rocket launchers, toxins, medicine, disease…
The business of government, the business of institutions, and the business of commerce all use money. Money should be respectfully applied to our obligations, our investments, and our spending. Kindness, in business transactions, will have everyone smiling in the national photograph that we leave to our heirs.
The absence of two words in the English language hide knowledge and power from their inherent responsibilities to mankind. They are ignore-ance, ignoring things you already know, and hitleresque, not referring to the bad guy, but the failure to stand up for the victimized.
Ignor-ance usually implies a lack of due diligence. The driver of a car speeding through traffic is ignore-ant of the consequences. People who are over worked, over stressed, over stimulated, or under appreciated have an increased tendency to be ignore-ant of their circumstances. These people are at risk for hitleresque behavior, which has destructive economic consequences.
The use of Hitler’s name in this word is not for the purpose of vilification. Those who died in the holocaust left us a gift, the graphic knowledge of our responsibility to treat our fellow humans with dignity and respect. Hitleresque behavior is ignore-ant of that human connection, the idle disavowing responsibility for opposing subhuman behavior. Hitleresque behavior didn’t begin with Hitler, but this word gives the behavior a name. The name identifies a behavior whose disappearance will be a boon to humanity.
Think of economics as a big machine, made of people. You want to use a big machine so you can accomplish a lot. There are just two things to consider before you start the machine, and while you are operating it. Don’t hurt anybody, and don’t hurt the machine. With that in mind use the machine to do kind things for many people. Democracy is not an economic principle. It is not okay to run over even one person, to help a million. If you feel differently, perhaps you should volunteer to be that one person
“Free Whispers,” and, “Poor Taxes,” are symptomatic of economic depression, and they are both economically depressing, but together they multiply that effect. They do not depress free speech, as long as the speech comes from an undisclosed hidden location. “Free Whispers,” are the suppression of free speech due to poverty. Cries for help go unheard. A government that presides over general welfare should hear them, and listen to them.
“Is there sound when a tree falls to the ground if no one is there to hear it.” Technically, sound is the interpretation of air compressions by a brain, so there would be no sound, unless someone is there to here it. The US supreme Court could go there and listen. Being honest and forthright they would determine that there was sound.
Free speech is a little different. When the justices symbolically go to that secret undisclosed location, they hear unfettered whispers. They can hear the “little poor,” freely speaking, but they are not willing to listen.
The hostile takeover of an individual liberty is unkind. “Free Whispers,” are the hostile takeover of the rights of a targeted segment of the population. Ethical, kind, considerations are the foundation of economics. First do no harm. Doing harm destabilizes the currency both vertically and horizontally. It is destructive to the general welfare.
The “Poor Tax,” was used to economically isolate the working poor, and “Free Whispers,” make it unlikely that anyone will reconnect to them. “Free Whispers,” are what is left of free speech for the nations workforce, and their dependents.
Free speech, the ability to speak out against dominating forces, without fear of reprisal, has been hijacked by governmental, corporate, giant, pirates, who deny their victims access to the courts. Free whispers are what are left of free speech, and even they are fading.
