Scott is joined by Gordon Marshall - systems analyst and independent RBE candidate for the 2017 NZ General Election.
They discuss the established anti-social system we endure and break down some of the core issues facing us all as we move forward in this system that has no structural recognition of universal life need or no collective life capital agency at any level.
We need to bear in mind that the same ‘human nature’ argument was long in place to explain slavery as a natural phenomenon. Socrates, Plato and, most trenchantly, Aristotle, all conceived slavery as natural to human beings, and so unchangeable. They were very intelligent men, but assumed this as a given fact of the human condition.
This analysis maps the deepening global crisis and the principles of its resolution by life-value analysis and method. Received theories of economics and justice and modern rights doctrines are shown to have no ground in life value and to be incapable of recognizing universal life goods and the rising threats to them.
Greg is a full-time public advocate working to stop the TPP and its ugly sisters (which are, in fact, all simply metastases of the cancer system and its unseen inner logic. In other words, they are mere symptoms of a larger-order system disorder where all Life Capital has now been erased from accounts by the reigning model, still in unconnected response).
Are there too many humans on the planet; or is there too much money-demand? That elite voices blame the majority poor as “overpopulation” while blinkering out the exponentially-multiplying money-demand controlled by a fraction of the human population reveals the derangement of this ruling-value system.
The overall basis of the market concept has to do fundamentally with assumptions related to human behaviour, traditional values and an intuitive view of history - not emergent reasoning, actual public health measures, technical capacity or ecological responsibility.
Life Capital vs. Money Capital: Oral submission to Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Committee, NZ Parliament, 17 May 2018.
Global competition means, in fact, the majority’s life means and security keep falling as the environment is looted and polluted on ever larger scales of depredation. Yet only ‘more growth’ of this system is imagined as a solution. The system is clinically insane.
The global corporate experiment has failed. Existence is on Earth is in rapid decline on every level of life organisation. Yet, the common cause is taboo to name.
Seeking a bottom line goal of "Zero carbon" emissions by definition assumes away all organic, social and ecological life requirements - they don't exist.
I could never take Doughnut Economics seriously because it adopted a junk-food model of economics which by its design was hollow at the core.
