What makes for a good society?

To be able to maximize our human potential we need to have available to us a public foundation capable of launching our abilities. The best societies are ones in which the individuals within them feel that they are a part of those societies. This would require that the people within these societies be able to buy what is produced, and this would depend on the amount of wages available to spend and the taxes to provide for them. At the core of every just society is a degree of public affluence that provides every person with the opportunity to become what he or she can become.

Societies that are designed to work for all have two basic elements and those are high wages and high taxes. With high wages money is spent.   High taxes would provide everyone with the public affluence that would provide people with the necessary support that would allow them to grow.

At the core of this system would be money flow. Money flow would be provided by wages and taxes. Within this system money is seen as the blood of society. As long as money is being exchanged, the blood of society keeps circulating and society remains healthy. Adding money to the system would allow us to stimulate the economy when needed.

There would be no need to save money because the idea would be to keep spending and that would require high wages and a social security system that would allow them to spend. This social security system would provide the necessary social structure that would give an all encompassing support system that people can rely on to protect them in all situations. This all encompassing support system would also require a high level of taxation to pay for it. This necessary social structure and high levels of taxation would move money between them, which would result in continually stimulating economic activity.

The Times Are A Changing

The union demonstrations in Wisconsin and the Arab and Iranian peoples movements throughout the Middle East are calling for a greater voice in managing their own affairs. The call for greater democracy and the means to see it to realization through social networking has changed the political dynamics of global politics. We are learning new ways to politically interact and apply ourselves which is throwing our existing political systems off balance and making it hard for them to react in the traditional ways.

The internet has been able to provide the necessary voluntary infrastructure that has allowed people movements to organize themselves into active components capable of applying themselves to meeting their concerns. Within the hands of the public are now the means to actually determine the kinds of institutions that will be allowed to service our needs.

The internet will allow us to reorganize ourselves according to our needs and wants. It will give us the means to give us a collective voice on things of concern to us and it will also allow us to build the necessary infrastructures that would permit us to institutionalize our common needs and wants in a collective way.
