Constructive Education – Part 2. What does it promotes?

In this post, I will continue to evolve the concept of “constructive education”. This subject is one of the most important aspect for creating a better future. As the Western society in the 21st century evolved attached to values of materialism, the need to own personal belongings for the sake of a self-image, became an inseparable aspect of young generations. It can be observed in the pursuit of self-fulfillment and the need for control based on ownership. This ownership mania can be reflected in the need to own fashion item, cars and properties. The claim of properties as our own is a false conceptional illusion, bringing only misery and separation.

If the purpose of humans is to promote peace and prosperity. It is important to remove those falls conceptional ideas from the mind of the young generation. The need and claim of proprietorship by the human race, is partly or in many cases wholly, the cause of all disturbance of peace on earth. Without any doubt, an individual should be able to identify a place as his home. But in any case, should not fine in pride or a reason to pursue the destruction for others.

We are all coming from nature and sharing earth. A livable earth is one of our basic requirements as any other living organism on this planet. Enough land and resources exist to maintain not only the human race. We have enough to maintain all its plans and animals as a whole. With the growing global awareness and the recent technological development, it is possible today to maintain a constructive ecological system. Such a system should benefit all the living on earth, without the need to corrupt the land and the nature.

Ignorant and so called civilized person are claiming proprietary right on the communal properties of nature, because they have detached themselves from the nature and its inhabitant. Praising values of materialism do not reflect in any manner riches of a person, just his detachment from where he came from.  It is impossible to find neither happiness nor peacefulness detached from our source, which is nature. The enrichment and comfort achieved in the price of the enslavement of the rest of the population, is a symptom of a general behavior. Which slowly but surely destroy the nature around us and diminish the number of species and animal on the planet.

We are all part of earth and its ecological system. Ignoring it will undoubtedly bring to the destruction of our civilization, our lands and our humanity. This fundamental idea must be in the roots of any educational system. As it affects the dreams, actions and decision making of our future generations.

To get a broader understating on the subject, join the conversation and read the first post in the subject of “Constructive education” and follow the next one.

The vicious cycle of our new economy – Part 3. Single Income model

The economic structure ruling the western world have a very simple set of principles. Promising the survival of the system and its rulers. In many ways, the only way the elite could promise the continuation of such an unequal mechanism, is to maintain a certain level of ignorance in the masses. For the sake of truly understand why the rich get richer while the rest stay poor, I believe it is time to open our eyes to some simple and logical principals. As I’m limiting myself in the length and complexity of each posts, the subject will spread on a few posts

The foundations of our current economic system require the existence of 3 different models, functioning simultaneity and supporting each other. “The Single income model”, “The multiple income model” and “The socio-economic separative model”. At this post we will concentrate in the first one.

The Single income model can be defined in the following manner – A model in which an individual is supporting his existence by the creation of only 1 source of income while be committed to a multiple channel of spending. As you could figure out yourself, the majority of the population is surviving based on this model.

This kind of living is unstable and fragile. To start with, the income of the individual is the only mean of survival. While a massive imbalance exists between the channels of income/expenses. In many cases, the commitment of an individual (by contracts) to rents, bills and services put a high minimal price tag on the monthly required income of the person in questions.  In case a mathematical equilibrium exist between the income to expenses (Income= expenses). The need to maintain a specific job, will be required for the sake of not defaulting the obligations. In such a model, the worker become oblige to continue his employment regardless of the terms he will get.

As you can see, I did not add many trivial costs. As free time hobbies, alcohol, cigarette, kids, vacations unexpected expenses and so on. The fragility and inflexibility of this model is clear. Logically, to maintain such a system for a long period in a safe manner will require the income to constantly be higher than the total expenses. Moreover, it is crucial that the employment itself will be secure, for all the period of the individual life. A reality of employment that do not exists in our generation.

Looking on the market of our days, the capacity of an individual to keep his job for a long period is limited. The general expenses are constantly rising due to inflation and our growing need for consumerism. In the reality, in such a model the capacity to save money is very smallIn many cases, a person will require a life time to save enough money for being considered rich. The idea of taking a loan is not a solution. The only thing that it does, is adding a momentary income for the sake of paying it back with interest. Which is another expenses in the balance.

This model promise survival, as one will manage to live in many cases comfortably as long as he cooperates with the system. From the other side, it is exactly this long-term cooperation that is needed for the sake of promising the survival of the elite and maintaining their enrichment.

Does it make sense to you? Can you identify your self-working based on this model?

This post is part of series, describing in simple world the economy of our days.
