293. Services in Equal Money Capitalism

 

Redefining Capitalism:

We’re going word by word in a very basic definition of Capitalism to redefine it, explore it and see what each word means and how we are able to re-direct every aspect of this collective agreement into a Best for All system.

Capitalism is an economic system that is based on private ownership of capital goods and the means of production, and the creation of goods and services for profit.[1][2] Elements central to capitalism include capital accumulation,competitive markets, and a price system.[3]

Service

ORIGIN
    Old English, from Old French servise or Latin servitium ‘slavery’, from servus ‘slave’.

Services

 

Problem:

  • Profit sets the trend: Services are only currently existent as a means to obtain  money/profit without considering their actual need and importance within an actual functionality of the system itself.  This implies that many or the jobs that currently exist satisfy a certain requirement for profit, but in no way consider an actual involvement of all parts within creating/producing something that is beneficial to all life, but rather represent the relationships of enslavement that we have allowed through the system of hierarchy where those with the most can pay other to do the job that no one else wants to do.

 

  • People are replaceable: this means the usual ‘you can always pay someone else to do it’ and in this, a being’s living condition is not considered, but replaced if not ‘fulfilling the profile’ which is how people are currently existing in constant anguish and fear of losing their jobs.

 

  • Not all services are paid equally: a gardener, a janitor does not earn the same that a doctor or a ditch digger – this creates inequality at all times which is what we have to focus on realizing all services are equally important and valuable within the consideration that a doctor would not be able to perform his surgeries in an unclean area, nor would he be able to get to work if there were no people building cars, paving the roads, maintaining the gas stations and the list goes on, we tend to lose perspective of how interdependent we are  to function properly

 

  • Shitty jobs/services are given and taken by people that we have deliberately ostracized to not have opportunities to get a better education and achieve an actual equal-opportunity as anyone else to have a decently paid job. This perpetuates the various stratus in society that maintain our critical status quo of inequality.

 

  • Taking any job  to pay debt -  this is another outflow of our current system wherein we’ve forced each other to do jobs that are in no way fulfilling or an opportunity for further development but only to earn sufficient money to pay for basic services and goods to live, or any other form of debt.

 

  • Mechanical jobs for endless hours – this is what we currently know as slave labor which is a direct outflow from wanting to get the most profit with the least inversion on raw materials and work force, and in this nor resources or human work/social capital is taken into consideration as living beings, but only used as a means to get the profit.

 

  • Slave Labor– this is within the consideration of the amount of industries and corporations that handle products that are certainly not of prime necessity, this leads to more garbage, more greedy pointless consumption and more enslaving jobs that are not remunerated in a fair manner, this often implies child labor and menial conditions to live in, like all the people that currently manufacture our gadgets and clothes, among the rest of our foods and ‘goods.’

 

  • Competition at work between individuals/ companies leads to an aggressive constant bombardment of advertisements to be the ‘favorite service provider,’ which transforms the human being’s every day living environment into a constant advertisement campaign wherein life is reduced to buying/consuming and paying for someone to do  a certain job without any form of reflection/ introspection on what it is that we are In fact paying another to do for which could be done by ourselves or paid in an equally-acceptable way as those that we currently consider earn ‘good money.’

 

Solutions: From Slavery to Equality

  • By supporting everyone with equal education and equal support to develop our skills within an optimum direction to support activities and creation of products that better our living condition, we empower each individual on an equal manner, wherein each one will decide what do they want to contribute to work with in the community/society. This removes the constant ‘low-paid-jobs’ that are considered profitable but in no way do they represent an actual human expression that supports the real development of ourselves as humans and along the rest of the environment that equally forms part of our resources used to live/ at the service of life.

 

  • People won’t be ‘replaceable’ but rather value themselves according to the equal right and opportunity to direct themselves and work in the activity that is most beneficial for themselves within the understanding of the sustainability that must exist within the system.

 

  • Equal profit*, Equal Share will enable people to value the activity that they do as the actual physical support and assistance that they provide at the service of each other as equals. This is the only way in which our services will be there to serve a common well being interest wherein money won’t be the goal, but a mere receiving reward for the service given that enables the system to function properly

 

  • We have the technology for ‘shitty’ jobs so that people’s lives are not wasted away by doing ‘menial jobs’ that we can all take care of individually as part of our inherent responsibility, as well as distributing these jobs within all of the people, so that some hours a week working on collecting garbage and/or managing public services does not become a dragging experience.

 

  • A lot of useless products and enslaving jobs will be transformed onto activities and professions linked to, for example restoring the environment.

 

  • By everyone contributing with doing the currently called ‘shitty jobs,’ we can all stop enslaving one or few people to do the whole work for ourselves, these jobs will eventually disappear as people understand how another’s freedom represents us standing up to take part of such delegated – or better said- abdicated responsibility.

 

The Solution


Each one who contributes to the provision of a particular good or a particular service in a company should receive an equal wage – because each one is a necessary participant within the process. It’s not because one is doing physical labor while another is handling management that the one should earn more or less than the other. If you don’t have people doing the physical labor, you can’t provide the good/service – and, in the same way, if you don’t have people managing all the operations, the provision of goods and services will be impossible, or at least highly inefficient.
When each one receives an equal income – prices can be calculated in such a way that each participant/each worker in the company receives an equal share of the profit and that, with this income, each one is able to live a successful and fulfilling life.

Day 182: Will we be Feeding the Fat Cats in Equal Money Capitalism?

 

Goods and Services that are a Basic Human Right cannot be put up for auction where only the highest bidders can access them. Within EMC – basic human rights will be provided to each one and will be provided by government, funded by taxes. The inefficiency of public companies is firstly often orchestrated to get the public to demand privatization, having the population play right into the hands of the elite – and, secondly, corruption plays a major role. Within EMC – privatization of basic human rights will not be permissible by law as it violates the Constitutional Principle of Equality. In terms of corruption, politics within EMC will be far more transparent than what it is now and politicians will have a much smaller role to play. You can read up on these points at www.equalmoney.org/wiki/Politics.

Day 176: Will the Elite Manipulate the Public to Push for Privatization in EMC?

 

 

EQUALIZING WAGES – COOPERATION AMONG CORPORATIONS
If a company at any time makes more money than they need to provide each one with their equal share of the profit as well as covering their costs – those monies will go into a fund that is responsible for assisting companies that are not making sufficient to cover their costs and provide each one with their fair share. That way a balancing effect takes place so that all companies are not only cooperatives in how they cooperate internally – but all cooperate with each other as well.

Day 175: The Economic Problem and Equal Money Capitalism

What about those who provide services instead of goods?
Q: How do people earn an income from jobs that don’t produce a product that is purchased, or will everyone need to do a job that produces something to be bought? Or does compensation also happen as paid from the government not just consumers purchasing products?
A: Any value that is added, whether through providing goods or services, will be compensated. So – the same principle applies to employees in companies that produce goods and employees of companies that provide services – the price of the good or the service is determined in such a way that all participants receive a fair share of the profit so that all end up with an equal income. In terms of those working for the government or providing government services – they will also receive an equal income – this is the purpose of taxation.

 

Q: How do we make sure everyone is employed; will we have to create meaningless jobs like in the army – dig a hole, cover a hole?
A: There are many jobs that require to be done that aren’t being done at the moment – the Earth is barely taken care of. Remember that a company’s responsibility will extent further than merely the production of goods and services. Each company will have a Compassion and an Environmental Department.

Day 168: The Future of Integrity with Equal Money Capitalism

 

Payments for Non-Products?
Q: How do people earn an income from jobs that don’t produce a product that is purchased, or will everyone need to do a job that produces something to be bought? or does compensation also happen as paid from the government not just consumers purchasing products?
A: Yes – any value that is added – whether to a product or not – will be compensated. So – for government services – you simply do your hours and receive an equal income like everyone else. Whenever you purchase a product or a service – you are always paying for the labour involved, as such there is no difference when paying for a product versus paying for a service.

Day 169: Equal Living within Equal Money Capitalism

 

Rewards:

  • If everyone benefits from people doing what they like to do, what they are good at and where they can develop their skills further, we will certainly all benefit from a best for all quality living standard because people will be self-motivated to contribute to a standard living that is no longer based on survival and competition to get ‘the most profit’ but instead, a communal agreement to give to each other what we would want for ourselves, which is what Best for All means.

 

  • No more child labor, no more prison-factories, no more misery payments, no more coercible jobs

 

  • Our integrity as humans and equals will be slowly but surely restored once that money cannot make us ‘more’ than other or having the power to pay others to do what should be each individual’s responsibility within the community/ society.

 

  • Elevating our living standard depends on everyone’s natural enjoyment and further development within any activity or skill they actually want to do/ perform and support with, which is within the understanding that what’s best for all is best for you and me.

 

  • Having the tranquility of a steady job will reduce stress from being able to be fired, no more non-contracts that jeopardizes our financial stability since everyone will be able to always have an available activity to earn money from with equal-profit benefit, which means: everyone wins.

 

  • No more slave labor, more useless products means no more tedious mechanical jobs and instead, using our means to implement innovative ways to fulfill our living necessities with alternative means/ products and activities, since money won’t be a ruling factor to decide what gets to the selves in our supermarkets.

 

  • Being able to contribute to basic activities that make our lives sustainable is a grounding and honorable job, it is what we all currently require to do: working on the fields producing food for a season or two and become aware of what making our lives sustainable is really about – this will bring the real and practical understanding of our interdependence with the ecosystem and each other as equal participants within this social organism.

 

  • Mutual appreciation for what we do for one another in a way wherein we all become aware of how much everyone’s contribution enables our lives to be functional –this will no longer be something taken for granted as we do now because of money, but because we will be equally participating, getting involved and re-establishing a sense of community that we have only sought through religion, political affiliations or sports – instead, we’ll learn how to enjoy each other once that money is not something we compete against each other for.

 

  • This all means a real value of who we are as the real capital as life will be lived and understood and this will se the foundation to never again seek to abuse one another for the sake of ‘having more,’ because the collective well being will override any sense of self-interest act of selfishness and sectarian benefit.

 

  • We will enjoy sharing our skills because sharing and working together won’t mean working with the enemy/competition but rather working together to elevate everyone’s living condition.
