Clean, ethical capitalism,
not the rotten, corrupt dirty capitalism of our current nightmares.
corporations would NEVER have supremacy over individuals. Either they would be equals or the individuals would take the precedent.
Rule of thumb, individuals can do whatever they want as long as it does not infringe upon others.
People's delicate 'sensibilities' are for the most part their own problem.
Recognition of our collective selfish interests,
clean air, clean water, decent environment, ethical business.
Government provides, basic, standardized utilitarian infrastructure.
The government should avoid ever being a player, & only acts as an impartial referee.
I favor lean, efficient, non intrusive government, but one that is completely effective when it is called for.
There could be social programs, but they would have to have some kind of demonstrative track record & be cost efficient & effective.
People should be about living their own lives. They know best what they want & usually can best figure out how to get them better than clumsy
The government provides a minimalist macro-superstructure that people can build their own personal lives upon.
I think just about everything between consenting, cognitively in command adults should probably be legal, but i would allow society to hopefully grow
into that in its most expansive terms.
I suppose ideally each person carries a certain self responsibility with them, which makes it a kind of distributed self governance.
Tough, savvy, autonomous individuals, probably don't need all that much government anyway.
Sort of individual centric society/government.
Not some monotonous, static, corpse like prescription for 'living' [if you could even call it that].
Liberty & adventure not the
poison of monotony.
One should build & structure up to dynamic stability, not pointlessly steamroller down flat to it.
One should optimally build stable structure embedded & at equilibrium with chaos,
not try to kill off & sterilize the vitality of it away.
It isn't 'stop the world & let me off' it is how do i live progressively better in an ever spinning, vital world.
control freaks always want to kill off & sterilize everything, so they can impose some still born, toxic, suffocated pictogram,
that looks almost like life, but isn't.
