We all help each other out. I associate deeply with the Kagupta School of Tibetan Buddhism and have a keen appreciation of the Dzogchen, Mahamudra and Rinzei Zen traditions of awakening. As mentioned, the most likely scenario that I picture is one in which we have near unlimited energy. So will online swapping replace online shopping? In the current system I will be an eternal slave until my deathbed. However, while the concept money is, of course, a product of human minds it does o does have a direct link to the physical resource which underlies all the others, energy. All money and taxes would be abolished.
We are already living in a time when it is possible for new mechanisms to emerge based on network graphs rather than the singular metric that money provides. Because nobody wants or needs anything? Technological advancement only takes you so far when individual ego is still present, which takes me to the next horrible way it's possible. Our own vanity and greed have led us to where we are still yet again; however, we are at a critical point once again in our existence to make a change. This currency exchange can be free or minimal administration cost and interest free. Our species likes to think we have control over such things as economics.
I don't really understand what you're saying here. Significant drop in time but still using the electricity. Mike Tyson would be a good fit to become leader of the planet earth. However, the dividend is paid for using taxes, not by printing new money. Perhaps, with everyone working together, we can invent a car engine that would eliminate the need to import oil from the Middle East.
Social capital accumulates over time: the more you share properly, the higher your rating rises, which in turn promotes good social conduct. Yet, we scoff at the idea. It is based upon the proposition that, essentially, money equates to energy. That would just be evil, and not many people are truly evil. Is this a glimpse of a problem free world? That would have to be before agriculture, before mercantilism, before cities and before industrialization. What if you dug down in the ground and there was nothing but dirt and rock. And even then, if there were communities of any kind, there were politics and the issue of control of resources.
Why would we do that if there was no money? Our government will remain the same. I side with Popper in this debate: plenty of new things will arise during the 5 year period, which even the most powerful of prediction engines will be unable to anticipate in advance. That's why time vouchers and energy certificates were developed. The fact is that most people are extremely badly off in the world. This is the last of five episodes about buying oil. Yes, in order to administrate a way of life without money, economic bodies, boards or councils or whatever you wish to call them would be created to absorb economic responsibility from our various governments.
The whole idea of this system is that everyone gets a square deal but also has the opportunity to make more credits in order to buy more things if they are very materialistic and can't live without the best. Nevertheless, genes are certainly the primary deteminant of behaviour in all animals, including ourselves. It's just a bunch of numbers that originally were generated out of thin air. A perk can be of various forms such as front row season tickets to the opera or to his or her favorite sports team. You can change these settings at any time. Developers give freely to the Open Source community without any expectation of payment or return value. I would ask we stick to the topic of how a moneyless society could function, really, the whole credibility of the Zeitgeist movement should hinge on the feasibility of this idea alone.
Another idea, I was following for some time, is that of complementary currencies. It has grown year over year for the past 30 years to the most recent 2016 event bringing in more than 70,000 participants. So the more materialistic could still buy designer clothes and branded food etc but it would come out of their monthly credit. Perhaps you could clarify the term. Are you saying a painter does not have the right to own their painting, a musician does not have the right to own their guitar, or that a couple does not have the right to own their wedding rings, or the house they built together? Will you reward us for the virtue of starving while others ate? Human behaviour certainly comes into play, but our behaviours are shaped by our environment.
Everyone would have a credit database kept within their own councils and a national database for the Government. If you have trouble procuring , heat , food or health service , then contact front line services. It was a means of which people could trade stuff that they all needed. The teams I worked with wanted to create the best possible products — without any designed built-in obsolesence or similar. People who go to Burning Man describe having an overwhelming sense of freedom and connectedness. The idea is that if we can efficiently share what we own, either by swapping or sharing, overall material consumption will decline.
There will be little to no marriage breakdowns. In similar way, a bunch of dried flowers can acquire huge sentimental value in some circumstances. Also, the abolition of money per se is no guarantee that genuine communism will be established. The rest is just desire. The classic criticism that no one would do any work in a world without money is increasingly being challenged by the on what really motivates us. Dharma means 'the way,' or reality.
