The economy and Ideology
Ok I am no expert on the economy, so this observation can be viewed as just my take on how I perceive it to work.
The economy is a closed system, although wealth can be generated it can only be within certain confines, in other words, if we all won the lottery tomorrow and therefore we all became rich, then who would do the work?
So the economy is an illusion, it is not really about money, it is about control of the masses, so who controls this illusion or should I say this invisible proverbial whip, cracking at all are backs?
Do you feel under economic pressure, don't worry, your supposed to.
I often wonder, just how stupid we must all be, to allow ourselves to be manipulated in this way.
You see the way I see it, is like this, the more wealth the system or the masses generate, the more the system has in terms of investment potential. So every bit of wealth created adds to the collective whole. The system can not afford to give the masses back the wealth they generate as such, because the fear is, if it did, then the poor would then be able to use this wealth, thus enabling them to break free of the perpetual slog that is the average job. They in effect need you to live from wage packet to wage packet or even better, to be in dept to the system, as I said, it is just a form of control at the end of the day.
The problem is, that although the economy currently works, it works by investment, the more wealth created the more investment can take place, and more investment, usually means more jobs. More jobs usually means more social control and more wealth as such being generated, this in essence, is a self perpetuating loop, the economy is now global and has grown into the global economy because of this. The economy or should I say this system, now in effect controls everybody.
Ok now for the problem, investment is now leading to increased I.T. development and although this is leading to wealth at some levels being generated, it will ultimately lead, I believe, to many more jobs being lost. Keep in mind that it won't cost much to produce a virtual worker, no more effort than clicking the copy button, although it may take some effort to initially produce this new workforce, once realised, we should ALL be able to benefit from the wealth these things will be capable of generating for us, but only if introduced into a different type of economic system.
The powers that be, I believe, are still clinging to what I call the old ideology, in other words, you create wealth by getting everybody to work, thus helping build the future, as I said the problem is, that in an A.I. / nanotech future, then this ideology or should I say the economy, is going to run straight smack into the problems highlighted throughout this eBook. I just hope the public see the issues raised here before the chain reaction takes a real hold, even though it is already beginning to show itself. The global economic down turn seen in the last few years is I believe the first real rumblings of the problems I have highlighted throughout this eBook and I do believe it will get worse, unless we are willing to change the economy.
Economic systems are usually based on supply and demand, but if a A.I. can provide a cheaper workforce and nanotech can produce cheap goods, then the first law of economics, dictates that society will eventually and inevitably have no choice, but to change. The education system and almost all aspects of so called normal life, will be impacted by this technology. There is no point in educating the masses how to become trained chimps for industry, when industry no longer has any bloody use for them?
What I believe should be done now, is to use the wealth created, not to create more meaningless jobs, but to alleviate the financial pressure that most of the poor seem to be under. So when rich people start to accumulate an individual wealth of many billions, then that wealth should be taken off them and then redistributed in a new way, i.e. giving this generated wealth directly back to the poor. So no more messing about investing in government work creation schemes etc, just give it directly to the people who produced it in the first place. I can see a few eyebrows being raised at this, but if the chain reaction is tackled in the old fashioned sense, then it will lead to an even greater disaster. If advanced software and hardware can pass exams etc and start to do most jobs, then it makes sense at least to me, to let the machines do most of the work, thus allowing us ALL to benefit. New economic tools will have to be created so as to combat the potential problems highlighted. If we get it right, then some of the problems currently seen within some labour markets, could surely be offset, but in a good way, by a virtual / robotic workforce, rather than all of the negative ways, pointed out.
At present investors and the public are being tapped, loans being made, dept being run up, so as to build the new e-commerce highways of the future. Highways of flickering light, with billions of bits of information, being instantly flashed around the Earth, a global infrastructure being built and funded by the masses, but, WHO ultimately will benefit ....will it be us.... or will it be the machines?
They say, the new e-economy may devastate the old economy, if true, then once again, WHO will benefit?
This is the point - WHO benefits.
I say, no more rich, no more poor, just an equal sharing of the wealth, that for the first time ever, the human race does not have to create for itself, and in this way, we could ALL benefit.
AT THE END OF THE DAY
THIS IS ABOUT
Ideology a dictionary definition:-
1. visionary theorizing
2 a : a systematic body of concepts especially about human life or culture b : a manner or the content of thinking characteristic of an individual, group, or culture c : the integrated assertions, theories and aims that constitute a sociopolitical program.
President Bushes ideology - this had most of congress applauding.
Taken from one of PRESIDENT BUSH'S STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESSES,
Our first goal is clear: We must have an economy that grows fast enough to employ every man and woman who seeks a job.
After recession, terrorist attacks, corporate scandals, and stock market declines, our economy is recovering. Yet it's not growing fast enough, or strongly enough. With unemployment rising, our nation needs more small businesses to open, more companies to invest and expand, more employers to put up the sign that says, ''Help Wanted.''
Jobs are created when the economy grows; the economy grows when Americans have more money to spend and invest...............etc.
ABOVE IS THEIR IDEOLOGY
THIS EBOOK IS ULTIMATELY ABOUT WHAT THEIR IDEOLOGY COULD LEAD TO
THIS BEING THE POINT OF THIS EBOOK, IF YOU HADN'T ALREADY GUESSED.
IF WE KEEP BELIEVING IN THE IDEOLOGY OF RICH AND POOR, BECAUSE AFTER ALL, THAT'S ALL IT IS, THEN EQUALITY FOR US ALL, WILL NEVER BE ATTAINABLE, WHICH HAS TO BE WRONG.
JUST REMEMBER IF WE ARE ALL EQUAL, THEN WHO LOSES....IS IT THE POOR?
AND AFTER ALL THERE ARE MORE POOR THAN RICH.
WE CAN'T CHANGE THE IMPACT THIS TECHNOLOGY WILL HAVE ON SOCIETY, UNLESS WE ARE PREPARED TO CHANGE THE ECONOMY OR SHOULD I SAY, THE IDEOLOGY.
WE EITHER WISE UP OR THE CHAIN REACTION COULD ENGULF US ALL.
SOME OF THE NEW TECHNOLOGIES WE ARE INVENTING, CAN NOT BE INTRODUCED INTO A SOCIETY THAT IS WILLING TO USE THE ECONOMIC TOOLS WE CURRENTLY HAVE.
THERE'S NO POINT LOOKING TO KEYNES OR OTHERS IN LIGHT OF WHAT IS BOUND TO HAPPEN, IF WE DON'T CHANGE THE IDEOLOGY, THIS IS SOMETHING NEW AND IT WILL TAKE NEW THINKING TO GET US THROUGH IT.
IF WE DON'T LEARN TO SHARE THE WORLDS RESOURCES EQUALLY, THEN WE WILL EVENTUALLY, LIKE SO MANY TIMES IN THE PAST, KILL EACH OTHER AND GO TO WAR OVER IDEOLOGY / RESOURCES / MONEY ETC, PLUS THE ILLUSION THAT IS POWER.
SOME ECONOMIES ARE AN ILLUSION SO AS TO MANIPULATE THE MASSES, AS I SAID, THIS IS NOT ABOUT MONEY, THIS IS ABOUT IDEOLOGY.
A JOB FOR EVERYBODY MAY SOUND GOOD, UNTIL YOU REALISE THAT NOT EVERYBODY WANTS, A MEANINGLESS JOB, WHICH MOST JOBS ARE, SO THE PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT TO BE DOING SOMETHING MEANINGLESS WITH THEIR LIVES, WILL BE TREATED LIKE CRIMINALS....?
I USED TO THINK LIKE MOST PEOPLE, I.E. WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT IDEOLOGY, I MEAN EVERYBODY WORKING SOUNDS OK, BUT IF YOU HAVE TRULY UNDERSTOOD THIS EBOOK, THEN YOU SHOULD START TO QUESTION, NOT ONLY WHO IT IS YOU MAYBE WORKING FOR AND WHAT TYPE OF SYSTEM YOU ARE PAYING INTO, BUT WHAT TYPE OF FUTURE YOU ARE WORKING TOWARDS.
NO MORE RICH - NO MORE POOR - IF THEY WANT YOU TO WORK, THEN DEMAND EQUALITY, WHICH AFTER ALL, IS WHAT MOST GOVERNMENTS SAY THEY WANT FOR US ALL.
AND THEN REALISE
THAT YOU ALSO HAVE THE RIGHT, TO DEMAND FROM THE DEMANDERS, THE SAME THINGS, THEY HAVE DEMANDED FROM YOU, SEE HOW FAR YOU GET?
HOW WE TREAT EACH OTHER, CAN NOT BE BASED ON MONEY, BECAUSE IN MY OPINION, IT IS EASY TO MAKE MONEY, IF YOUR RUTHLESS ENOUGH.
THIS ALSO GOES FOR HOW THE POWERS THAT BE, THINK THE MASSES SHOULD BE TREATED, ARE THE MASSES TO BE TREATED AS NOTHING MORE, THAN IGNORANT EASILY MANIPULATED FOOLS OR ARE WE TO BE TREATED AS EQUALS?
JUST REMEMBER, IN A DEMOCRACY, IT'S YOUR CHOICE OR IS IT?
IF THE CHAIN REACTION OCCURS, THEN IT WILL BE THE FAULT OF US ALL
AS J.MICHEAL STRCZYNSKI PUTS IT
THIS IS ABOUT - ORDER vs CHAOS
THE OLDEST IIDEOLOGY THERE IS, HORUS V SETH
TAKEN FROM BABYLON 5 SIMPLY THE BEST SCI-FI SERIES EVER MADE.
IF THE POWERS THAT BE ARE TRYING TO PREVENT CHAOS, THEN I BELIEVE THEY ARE GOING ABOUT IT THE WRONG WAY
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
PERSONALLY I THINK, CAPITALISM IS A PSYCHOPATHIC NIGHTMARE THAT WE SHOULD ALL WISE UP TO.
HIERARCHICAL POWER STRUCTURES IN GENERAL ARE LED BY PEOPLE....PEOPLE ARE?
WE WON THE COLD WAR / WE WON GULF WAR 2? - WESTERN IDEOLOGY HAS WON, BUT SHOULD WE REALLY TRY IMPLEMENTING IT GLOBALLY, IF THIS IS THE STRATEGY, THEN I HOPE TO GOD THE PEOPLE AT THE TOP HAVE FACTORED IN ALL OF THE PROBLEMS I HAVE POINTED OUT.
WHAT THE HUMAN RACE NEEDS TO DO NOW, IS WISE UP,
MONEY IS AN IDEOLOGY
SO WORK IT OUT, WE HAVE HAD 6000 YEARS TO PERFECT THIS IDEOLOGY AND IT STILL DOESN'T WORK AT LEAST NOT EQUALLY AND IT NEVER WILL.
SO WE SHOULD ALL WORK TOWARDS CHANGING THE IDEOLOGY, OR WE COULD ALL BECOME VICTIMS OF THE CHAIN REACTION.
WHAT THE PEOPLE AT THE TOP SHOULD ASK
THEMSELVES IS THIS, WILL SMART MACHINES RESPECT THEIR POWER, MONEY OR THEIR
IDEOLOGIES OR WILL SMART MACHINES SEE THESE THINGS AS JUST HUMAN BASED
