For context on redefining capitalism, read: Day 180: The Word ‘Capitalism’ in ‘Equal Money Capitalism Redefined
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. Elements central to capitalism include capital accumulation,competitive markets, and a price system.
Profit is not to be understood in the same way as it is now. At the moment – profit is what is left after wages have been paid and production costs are covered. Within EMC – there will be no wages – your profit will be your wage. So – every time a product is scanned when it is bought – the computer sees what percentage of the price is allocated to whom – and immediately the money-allocation happens accordingly. So – there’s no need to wait a year to calculate profits – it will be immediate.
When Profit became a Verb
This time we begin with a significant change within our money-consciousness and the way our current capitalistic system operates. It implies that profit will no longer be a figure able to be manipulated to satisfy a few people’s dreams, but will become a direct and certain remuneration for one’s contribution and cooperation to the production and participation in providing services. This means that it will no longer be something that can be directly manipulated to be more for the people that run the company/business or self-employed, but will be the direct pay as one’s wage for the work done. Hence, Every-One involved within the production/manufacturing, distributing/ inspection/ retailing services will be equally supported by the purchase such goods/services – which are our necessary means to live –and that will be directly given to every individual that contributed to produce such good or give such service. That’s common sense. In this money won’t be an aim in itself but a means to grant each other equal-benefit from the work done to generate our goods and services.
So, how come we’ve been running a Profitable system of Inequality? The answer is in:
The Desire for Profit
The Problem that is currently existent is how ‘The Profit Motive’ is the very representation of Greed externalized as a way to justify having the right to place an arbitrary price in order to fulfill someone’s desired outcome of earning a lot of money and distributing it at their will among the people that worked to generate/produce such good/service. In this, as we’ve reviewed in the previous steps, people that own the Capital Goods set the rules, and this sense ancient injustice has been perpetuated as a righteous norm wherein people then can justify the worst type of crimes such as slave labor to maximize profit which is the ubiquitous motto everywhere where ‘business is business’ and money is able to step upon any form of dignity and living consideration left within the human race.
This desire is the key point that makes our world go around, and it is certainly not a natural instinct but more of a self-accepted mind influence that becomes the drive upon our lives, constantly impulsed and imprinted from what we get to see in the media that shapes our minds in order to become used to believing that having the most money/wealth/properties is what we all should seek in life – this is a product of cunning people that have used Freud’s psychology tapping onto human’s emotions and feelings to satisfy the need to fulfill oneself with buying/ consuming products and become the ‘ideal self’ that is manufactured in Hollywood studios and advertisement agencies, that’s where our current Lifestyle is brewed.
For more, watch The Century of the Self
In this, the sense of ‘Self’ is the Economic-man shaped by Adam Smith’s parenthood upon our current capitalist system. This is the human that is able to gain superiority through having the most money, which is only existent as an Idea/Belief/Perception of ourselves as ‘More’ than others, linking products/things we buy and even properties with an energetic experience of satisfaction that is imprinted through sounds, energies, words that we accept as ‘what we like’ and ‘desire’ and voilà! you got your basic brainwashing done for the rest of your life to be a loyal consumer seeking to make money to have a successful/ happy living. Who benefits? Those on top that se the rules of the amount of money they get from creating the need and providing you the need, what they get from creating a problem and selling the solution. Neatly placed for our feeble sense of self in Equality as Life with everything that is Here, which we’ll get to later.
This psychological aspect is a key factor here, because how else would we have an entire economic system being sustained just by fueling people’s desires to work to earn more, to escalate in hierarchical positions within a company to Get more and more and more money? Well, you have to Show ‘What’ is possible if one has ‘all the money.’ And in this it is impossible to not address how programmable we are to place self interest and our own wishes and desires upon any sense of collective reciprocity and interdependence as a basic reality-check that is clearly indicating -and has indicated throughout our human civilization -that some people are Not being equally supported to even have the means to eat to generate such ‘positive experience’ of imagining having all the money in the world to live such outrageous lives – it is Vital to understand that we’ve gotten ourselves to this massive crisis based on what we were Taught to like, to buy, to consume and desire – these were Not innate desires, these were acquired through our parental influence due to us simply being born wherein this is ‘how things are’ and that’s it, no questions asked on why some have an astounding amount of money and others don’t if we are all human beings with human bodies requiring the same to live – Oh! but, then there was the mind…
We have explored this point in posts like:
So, once that we have the nice picture presentation of the ‘life we want’ based on what we are taught in our education system, parents, people around us, the images, pictures, stereotypes we buy and consume through our eyes and driven/motivated by energy and with our money virtually anywhere in our civilized cities in this world, we can buy anything we want if one has the money to do so. That’s the ‘master card’ that we seek through making more money, that’s how we seek to attain such lifestyle at any cost –and that cost implies having to take from others to give more to yourself only, making the most money no matter who has to be abused, killed, depleted, scavenged, tortured, cheated and lied to, when it comes to ‘business’ it is as if we have all agreed to ‘not mess with each other’s money interests’ because we have Not dared to question our ability to abuse through our current monetary system in the first place. so, we’ve all remained complacent because we don’t want to debunk our ability to ‘attain’ lifestyles that we copy from what we call entertainment. And daring to question this ensues relationship troubles and this is all simply meaning that we are willing to fight and do whatever it takes to maintain our self-interest in place, our superiority and power that can only be founded upon abuse by the ‘Profit’ figure as it has existed currently
Once desire is directing the human being, what’s left is little to no common sense to regard other living species, to see how other people’s wages are subjugated to making the most profit for only the people that have all the capital goods and have the ability to pay cheap/slave labor in places where people have no other option but to work for few cents an hour to extract the necessary materials, manufacture/produce them and then do all mechanical works of packaging, distributing and as such making the world go round,doing the Real physical job that is Not properly paid, while the people on top of the corporation –that already had the means to create such business – sit placidly waiting for profit to start showing up in their account. And I don’t blame them, because they are legitimate in what they do within the rules and regulations we have All accepted and allowed.
The approach with Equal-Profit share is certainly a revolutionary aspect within this picture, because it is not about fighting against ‘the Elite,’ but placing a norm wherein everyone will have to recognize each other’s work as equal. And in that, Profit in this new way of existing as an equal-share of the money made by selling the product, changes the perspective of anyone having the ability to abuse such profit through the pricing system to hoard more money than others, or pay unjust wages to people that are equally important as the people that run the business in an administrative and executive manner. In this, we’re simply showing the fact that the needs from people on top are equal to the ones currently at the bottom of their pyramid and that each one’s work is equally necessary and relevant within the functioning of a certain business or corporation.
It is a common sense measure that must be applied to stop our society from going into further polarization and abuse by this unlimited cap we’ve placed to the amount of profit that is able to be made by few individuals that capitalize their already vast amount of wealth just by owning the means to d o so. This is how we’ve got our ‘richest men in the world’ or women for that matter and dare to praise their cunning ways to make money by taking away from others what should have been an equal-profit share from the get go to all people involved.
