I've heard that studies show that 4 hours a day is all you really get out of human productivity anyway. Yes you can throw humans on a zombie assembly line but that only works if their job is absolutely routine and repetitive. Most people don't work in factories though. And truth be known, most don't want to anyway as a result of the inhuman repetition of a factory line.

The 40 hour work week is a outdated industrial revolution concept.

The time for Free Energy has not only arrived but has become a must if our species is to survive. Just look at the Gulf of Mexico right now if you disagree.

As to taxation, this might work if we had a proper blend of democracy mixed with socialism. The government would have to provide basic essentials free of cost such as education, healthcare, etc.

All wages would have to be zeroed out so that greed could be kept at bay. Russia has survived with something akin to this in their legal and medical professions and is still going today as we speak. When this is done you weed out the greedy people just looking to get rich where as legal, medical jobs just become a means to that end. And on the other hand you would attract the people who truly wish to protect/heal people to boot. Russian doctors and lawyers make a middle class wage and their economy still exists. In the past a factory worker made even more than doctors and lawyers did. Yet Russia still exists.

Political lobbying would need to be outlawed with stiff sentences to any violators being employed.

A campaign budget would need to be supplied at government expense to all candidates with each one given equal air time on local stations that would graduate to statewide channel coverage and then national if need be.

Incumbent terms would be limited to just two terms in order to eliminate the career politician phenomena and all of the corruption that can entail.

Sadly, the current society is so entrenched in the USA (at least), that only a complete catastrophe could level the playing field so that such higher ideas of human society could be implemented.

The critics that I see on this thread are those who probably have never known any different and are incapable of thinking out of their current paradigm to begin with which is another sad thing to watch and truly depressing as well.

When you look at the increases in productivity, and that one the husband working fifty years ago could support his family, the idea of both parents working 20 hours to support a family of four or five is completely realistic.

When you add in that we are supposed to support all the families around the globe having four and five kids each, then that is the problem.

If we worked fewer hours sitting in cubicles, or in rooms running machines, and had more time to live healthy lives, our medical costs wouldn't be so high.

Mainly we are paying for cures that are more problem than cure.

You are right poet1b.

At one time Americans were able to live on one income. What happened that we now must have two incomes?

It is not possible to support the worlds population under the current system. Something will have to change.

And yes it seems as if America spends half of it's time creating a problem and then the other 1/2 comming up with the cure.

It really doesn't work like that and it wouldn't work like that. The government can't just print out an infinite amount of money and do whatever it wants... shifting local/state government functions to the private sector would be a fail of epic proportions. Let's take street lighting as an example:

How many private companies will you have running the street lighting?

Will this be charged on a 'per household' basis?

It wouldn't be a profitable business because it wouldn't work, so where is the incentive for the private sector to provide street lights? There is none.

Solar power street lights serbsta and then no one has to bear the cost of lighting the street.

You cannot have government without paying for it, either in the form of taxes, or in some other way. This includes printing the money. When you print new money, you steal from everyone else through inflation. The end effect will be the same as taxes - people will pay for it.
Nothing is free.

This is actually the root of our problems - when you print new money yourself, it is considered a crime and you go to jail. But banks are free to create new money, even collect interest from them, and nobody is prosecuting them. They are stealing from us right now as I write this. WAKE UP!

Your tax money does not come back to you. We are talking about taxing labor here, and when you file your 1040, if you do, not a cent goes to 'services' as you seem to believe.

You pay for 'services', whether you want them or not, through a multitude of other taxes. You buy gasoline, cigarettes, go for a few drinks on weekends? Great, you have paid your share....via indirect taxation.


A little tax here, a little tax there. A penny here, a penny there.

When you really begin to understand it all it's quite insideous what they have done to us.

Grocery tax, Gas tax, Cell phone tax, 911 service tax, county tax, city tax, permits and fees, fines, state tax, etc, etc, etc ...

Though the idea of a 20 hour working week seems to come from the right place, I would suggest the true answer is doing what we want to do to the benefit of all.

If one actually LIKED what one did for a living, a 40 hour(or more) working week would be something we insist on rather than something we settle for.

Ideally we would want to do the work that fits in with our talents, interests and passions-quantifying and standardising working hours would then become unnecessary.

Working would be more enjoyable and benificial for all if we all did what we had a passion for soul57ld, instead of doing what we had to to survive.

Printing the money for government instead of taxation is actually not bad. It would lead to inflation, but there is an inflation anyway in current broken money system, so this could be somehow plausible.

Inflation is just an idea, much like money and taxation are an idea. Maslo.

Inflation just comes from insecurity of not having.

As long as there is enough there wil be no inflation.

The idea of people working less for more has been suggested before have a look at:

Douglas Social Credit

The idea is basically that everyone gets an allowance from the government that gives you enough to survive.

You then have the choice of how much you want to work, if at all, to give you more money.

The supply of money is carefully controlled so that you don't end up with problems like we have now, tax etc is different.

THe idea of an allowance from the government Power_Semi is intriging. Most will squander it and it will naturally end up be redistributed into the hands of those who want more. As long as the allowance continues and the basics are provided there is no problem. If the allowance stops there will be issues.

Social Credit philosophy is best summed by Douglas when he said:

Social credits really don't sound like a bad idea. We already do this it's called taxation and wealth redistribution.

The problem people seem to have with it is taxation. If we eliminate taxation there should be no issues. Afterall who wants to drive down the street in thier brand new Mercedes SLS AMG and be surrounded by beggers, hungy children and people in wheelchairs? This only leads to gangsters hiding on rooftops with sniper rifles trying to get a bead on the driver.

Well, I dont exactly understand what you mean. Inflation is a simple result of adding more money to (constant) economy, which causes its value to go down. It transfers wealth from everyone to those printing the money. It is not just some idea, it is an economic fact.

Laws are irrelevant if you can steal from everyone just by a few clicks on a computer, and even collect interest from this stolen wealth.

The money will come from the government. They will just print up as much as they need to make sure that this all occurs. Progress isn't cheap. There is no way they could ever pay for all of this unless they embrace unlimited printing of currency.

The purpose of government was to protect the person without power from people that believe they could gobble up resources and control supplies robbing the wealth of the people.

It's all based upon a perception of reality anyways. The new reality is you don't need taxes. That is scarcity thinking. Abundance thinking would recognize this as reality.
