My ideology attacks the areas that I see as problematic. The system I laid out is still capitalistic, but only after the standard needs have been met.
By having a system where anyone and everyone has a place to live, eat, sleep, and any education that their potential demands. Governments as we know
them would have to disappear, but the foundation that the government is, would stay in place. Countries would still have to have their independence so
cultural heritage to stay intact along with their beliefs. Their infrastructure would still be under the same control as before, but now it is a need
that would be determined on size and population, not wealth.
By eliminating Interest and debt, we would eliminate the ability to feed greed to the extent we have today. Creating a basic standard of living for
more than just first world countries is my main argument, along with outing the corporations that have a stranglehold on all.
Conflict in the world today is a challenge on its own and has no simple answer. But.... by creating a world that everyone's basic needs are met and
the potential to be more than a victim through education, would at least open opportunities for change and growth. One of the biggest reasons for
conflict is oppression. Create a balance for all and what we create is potential. A lot of people in third world countries are just trying to survive
through starvation and disease. Imagine the change if they had this basic right along with skills and resources to excel.
As far as for businesses that only consume resources, nothing would change too drastically. People would own the natural/recycled resources including
a set amount of labor resources. If you had to compare it to something then these labor resources would be taxes. Consider going to work for a private
company and you would get only paid the luxury pay from your employer. This would be a minimal amount since all your basic needs are covered in the
new system. This would be food, housing, clothing, power, Internet, ect. and anything else the people want considered part of the standard of living.
The higher the standard of living, the less luxury pay people would earn since it is provided for them.
Like I said before, this system would only work if we had a technologically sound system to control equality and prevent abuse. Luxury pay is what
would get you better than the standard and would be based off your level of education/experience, or having your own business that provides a luxury
Again, this is only a vision in my head, and the hope that one day we can put aside our difference and strive for more as a species.
