PREVAILING SOCIETY IS OUR PROBLEM

PREVAILING SOCIETY IS OUR PROBLEM

 By Reed Camacho Kinney, April 17, 2013

 I know that many people are struggling to make ends meet, and many more are worse than that.

I’m not the expert of any science. I observe society, think, and write about it to the best of my ability. And, I provide the pragmatic outline of a community structure, which provides its members with real independence and autonomy.

Despite my elementary writing skills, the ideas I endeavor to present are bigger than me. To establish an equitable society is not an insurmountable challenge! We know what our psychophysical needs are, and we can, at least, imagine what wholesome living would be like. Human goodness includes working-with-each-other-for each-other.

In an equitable society, people decide together what courses of action their community takes. That is true navigation, with great flexibility, shared among community members.

The greatness of humane solidarity is born from consensus-based cooperation. Community civic organization includes the executive function, which is shared equally among all members. Dialogical consensus-based civic structure, pragmatic, shared power, manages community capital, and its civic-economic organization.

Members capitalize their community, as well as their private productive endeavors, freely through their mutual community bank, MCB.

Their community coordinating committee, CCC, does not have an executive function; the executive function of civil organization is shared equally among all members. Community is composed of many small Settlements of Mutualistic Families, SMF.  Each semi-self-sufficient SMF has a vote. The CCC receives plans for community action from the SMF.

The CCC makes ballots, one for each SMF. Each SMF must dialogue to make their decisions. Given the opportunity and the means, people will work-with-each-other-for-each-other for their greater good.

Each SMF member lives according to her personal values. Their independence is contingent on every member contributing to the semi-self-sufficiency that modern independence requires. (1)

In a dialogical-based, participatory society – community – each child and adult is viewed as a values maker. Peoples’ contributions to their greater good are valued. And, only in the context of real community can there be an immediate, concrete, greater good.  The function of community is to serve that greater good. Community support provides each child with a generous, liberal education through art and science with participatory, self-directed learning.

All parents would like that for their children, but, in the prevailing society, unless the money is at hand, parents cannot access that quality of education for their children. The structure of current society requires that half of the people struggle – compete – for what little money can be earned.

By contrast, in real community, a civiceconomic function is added to the civic function thereby enabling the civic function to provide education, health service, and gratuitous capitalization for its members.

It’s delightful, because the only way to sustain that mutualistic, economic organization is with a dialogical, consensus-based community decision making processes.

Our prevailing society robs the lives of most people in the world, exploitation and wasteful consumerism. Wasteful, mass production for developed markets, and the climatic disorder it causes, leads to mass scarcity. The poor in their desperate crisis can overrun and deplete developed countries. And, invariably, the central bank is designed to perish from its own inertia. Sundry dangers converge that can extinguish mass centrist society with calamity. Even now, isolation and lack of support is the lot of too many people in our society, and in the world.

We have every reason to live in real community, sane society, to safeguard each other.

We can establish the greater good. Dialogue in a structured format is effective for meeting members’ existential needs. Members decide among themselves, and with consensus, what they think is best for their community. No one is neglected while they attend to matters at hand.

In a functional economy money goes automatically to where it is needed. Funding for community projects with community money is always at hand. In the event two, or more, cooperative communities decide to fund a big project, then, in the decentralized world of sovereign semi-self-sufficient communities, pooling resources would meet that end.

The basis of community is dialogue (2), and among many members, the best ideas are always at hand. Community support enables each child to learn the skills of her passions, among all the arts; each child develops individuated and participatory experience concurrently, and at her discretion. By ages twelve through fifteen, each child can participate in civil dialogue and can enter any of the public productive enterprises as a neophyte and learn proficiency. An office of the community educational organization is integrated with each public productive enterprise. The educational organization is integrated with the community owned cooperatives.

Real community is complete unto itself. Community food production facilities, and lands, are centers of higher learning. Intermediate community industry is another scientific learning center. Community cooperatives include water well drilling, renewable energy, construction, textiles, printing, the community mutual bank, community educational organization, health service, community personnel office, among others.

Community owns and self-manages its cooperatives, its civic-economy, which provides its guaranteed minimum standard of service, GMSS.  All members manning their cooperatives receive compensation in addition to their GMSS.

By capitalizing members gratuitously, except for the service charge, each man, woman, and child is supported in their creative and productive endeavors, which stimulates   diverse productivity.

The core of community organization is dialogue and consensus: mutualism. Mutualism is grounded on dialogue, because when truly engaged, dialogue is ever-determined to meet the existential needs of each member.

Dialogue is an instrument that can be structured to function for community organization. Settlements of mutualistic families, SMF, can reach agreement through their community coordinating committee, CCC, and their elections.

Community doesn’t need representational government. No position in civic organization is come at through elections. In a functional economy capital automatically goes where it is most needed, so too, in a functional civic organization the qualified make their contributions where they are most needed. Community is like a ship in emerging reality.

The greater good is existentialism – that each member – you – have the support needed to develop your own productive life, your values, and to defend your lifestyle, for you and for your family. You happily make your contribution to maintain that greater good. Existentialism would have each person’s unique potentials developed and exercised, ones passion and love for creation and discovery. Members share and test their unique values in community.

Members create plans for community action. Plans are approved by community through their elections.

Centralized powers contending for domination of the vital sectors of the world economy bring down every manner of wickedness on the heads of people and nature. There is no purpose in that. Prevailing, stratified society depends on impersonal, mass production and distribution systems. The resources needed to keep that set-up going are always less accessible, and more expensive to extract.

Sociopaths find their ways into positions of control. (3)  They have no purpose except to “win”. Manipulation is their forte.  Viewed from that perspective, our current economic system is sociopathic; callous subjugation, domination, and violence.

A sociopath will never change, and the only way to deal with one is to strike him out of your life.

Mass centrist society supports its class of wealth through human exploitation, and rather than tolerate that inequity, we must strike it out of our life.

The best option for mutual enrichment with biophilia, love for life, is through an altogether different context.

The collaboration of honest people will breathe life into real community.  To defend and develop our sanity and well being, we need that position of real independence.

Notes:

1.

Reform will never humanize the prevailing, sociopathic, socioeconomic system. The monopoly of the economy’s units of exchange by the Federal Reserve System contains the seed of its own destruction.

People must face the fact that only by building a humane society among themselves, independent of the central bank and its support industries, and its federal government, will the escape from its malaise be feasible.

Most everything you were conditioned to learn, including the profit-based mentality, the central bank, consumer-based economy, economic completion, the free market system, conventional democracy and its representational government, development, Human Rights, Civil Law, and dreams of opulence, are among the deceitful ploys and weapons of global domination.

No corporate consortiums are independent from the Federal Reserve System.  The central bank is between debt default caused by interest charges, inflation, and the need withhold its money from half of the world’s populations in order to exploit them.  The situation is untenable, and unsustainable. Exploitation, the mainstay of stratified society, is the cruelest dehumanization of people.

The Federal Reserve System, the cap stone of all commerce and industry, is remorseless.  The saner people who hold positions of economic stability are schizophrenic, torn between their natural humanness, and the pitiless exploitation and unconscionable neglect of poor people.

No amount of reforms or charities can curb the fundamental, exploitative nature of stratified society. Stratified society, by definition, is dehumanizing.

So how does one deal with a sociopathic economic-political system?

Real community is the only way to work towards universal emancipation. It begins with dialogue among people who want permanent independence.
