Read on , because I am about to state a categorical imperative , which if you follow - all wealth is yours , and if you do not follow it - poverty
might come to you.
Store up good things for yourselves in the future ..
In the past philosophers religious and non- religious alike have developed theories of ethics and used the approaches of axiology , to determine the
differences between what we value as being 'goods' and 'evils' .
Today , value theorists , define in a scientifically empirical way what values there are in the world in terms of psychology , sociology and economics
. There is a demarkation between 'moral goods' and 'natural goods' , those being moral - what we determine as goods to be valued in our own modes
of thinking , including perhaps categorical imperatives , and natural - what we value as being resources available to us within our natural
Economists are traditionally the main users of the term 'wealth' , and value theorists from environmentalist stances also use this term but meaning
received or issued wealth .
My discussion and proposal within value theory's remits , makes a full use of the term 'wealth'. Wealth is in itself a value , and a good , both
morally and naturally desirable , and , obtainable. Wealth , the realisation of wealth , is the primary goal mankind has both economically and
psychologically and also socially . Wealth then , is where ultimate goods are found and categorical imperatives will hold their place .
An invitation is extended to limit or delimit the folllowing observation :
*Realised wealth exists in the absence of the negation of that wealth *.
Simply explained , this is a categorical truth . In terms of moral understanding, the intrinsic value of this imperative proposition/observation is in
the person's instrumental use of this observation. It is categorically necessary to observe this fact. For simple example , the wealth which is a
person's peace and enjoyment of any activity in life (such as relaxing by the pool) can easily be negated by an ugly fishwife nagging the person
enjoying his wealth to hurry up and mow the lawn) . Without the fishwife or the nagging , a person's wealth is his to enjoy. So enjoy any wealth ,
the instrumental use of a double negative is required. Gaining a definte positive .
So from this categorical imperative (the use of the truth) many many more examples can be given , in infinite variables . Therefore value theory
becomes of psychological value to any person immediately , and indefinitely.
The imperative of business and economics in todays world has been profit. Profit exists after costs . In theory , pure profit comes without cost
(twice richer) . The problem of business and a very real issue amongst those keeping the economy alive and the very rich is again , addressed by the
imperative of wealth retention , and categorical imperatives are being sought in the actual realisation of wealth . Gold , which represents ,
'near-realised' profit or wealth , (money being exchanged for gold) , has natural and minor value in that it may please someone's wife , is
undegradable and is held by others as a moral and intrinsic good . However , just because others currently value or desire gold , does not mean it is
a source or exists as realised wealth . Gold which is not under protection for example can easily be negated.
So economically speaking those who wish to realise wealth are on the train going to the right place with the right ticket , while all those others who
have no idea how to realise wealth , are not .Realising wealth only in retirement , or in partiality as is 'issued' by local controllers (including
the environment) is not acceptable to for example, an investment banker. The question is - why does he make money ? And the answer is so that he can
realise his wealth - he can literally sit back and enjoy what he has , without a care towards any minor negation of his 'funds'.
And this is where economically anyone anywhere has this categorical imperative at the root of his action , at the base of his results . However value
theory going further than individual or corporate or state economic gain , society may produce of itself an objection or serious or perhaps overlooked
major negation of a person's wealth , or his ability to realise it properly . Because any negation (including moral negation (crime and guilt) does
count , in this , categorical imperative regarding realised wealth.
Sociologically speaking , realised wealth is of major importance. The very realisation of the categorical imperative to observe the fundamental truths
proves this. No individual, can have a different view of this truth , he is categorically , and we are categorically , locked into this situation .
In presentation of this problem - the negation and the necessity of its abscence , to acheive true realisation of wealth - we are presenting a moral
dilemma for those who actually wish to realise their economic or psychological wealths , individually. The categorical imperative highlights the
issues of crime, dishonesty , and abuse of power - because you're not going to your excessive 'wealth' in peace. In fact when the attempt to
realise wealth is negated at all, you have failed. You cannot realise your wealth while guilt remains upon you , while liabilty for fraud remains a
part of your consciousness , you cant relax by the pool . While you are thinking of ways to negate the possibility of negation of your wealth , you
are negating yourself - you gave yourself more work and hence less realised wealth. Thrice.
What society needs then , as well as the individual and the economic players is radical review of value theory in terms of wealth realisation . In
fact what society needs is an imperative re-consideration of the truth that realised wealth exists in the absence of the negation of that wealth.
On the reverse side of the coin - (realised) poverty exists in the absence of the negation of that poverty . Not only proving the imperative statement
, which is devoid of 'ifs and thens' , this truth can be seen as applicable again across the board , psychologically , socially and economically.
Without negation of anything which is lacking , in terms of understanding , mutual understanding , (moral goods) , and natural goods , (work , working
systems , resources , other material needs/inputs) then poverty follows along , becoming realised poverty , a worse 'evil' or negative value , than
the poverty itself. The potential of everything being wrecked comes from not negating problems. So the reverse is also a categorical imperative.
What has been presented offers gains - immediate gains , and long term ones , effectual for everyone , anywhere at any time. Re - appraising exactly
what we value as wealth (issued or received) , then allows us to bring to life a very different but much more enlightened perspective of how we
actually live life .
Value theory has already altered many people's perspectives - too many to list (including economists) . One example might be the investment banker
(ref tv - Portland Row) , who has sold up everything , including his house , finished being an investor , and is now concentrating on realising his
wealth . For example he took time to go to scotland , clear a patch of woodland , live in a shipping container , wash himself with hot water kneeled
on a tarp etc . His realisation of his wealth- is simply being alive, _ any losses cut .
