RESOURCE AND KNOWLEDGE BASED ECONOMY REWRITTEN



RESOURCE AND KNOWLEDGE BASED SOCIETY
                                        part 1  

                                                      AKA   Socialized Democracy




1.  All humans get a small house to live in regardless of the capacity to work and think.


2. All humans receive the nutrition they need to survive and thrive.


3.  Money is no longer a needed commodity.


4.  The more you contribute to the society the more you receive in honors, goods and
      services.


5.  Jobs will no longer be indefinitely retained at the same place.


6.  Every human has the right to higher learning for free.


7.  Every human has the chance to be innovators without the need for income.


8.  Robots will do most manual labor.


9.  Exploration and conservation of our environment becomes key in the happiness and
      survival of the human race.


10.  Energy is gleaned from sun, wind, ocean currants and wave  action,   harnessing

        the power in the magnetic field,  and for space travel lightwave energy is harnessed.



11.  Goods will be allocated based on when you signed up for a thing

       and the demand for such a thing.  Bicycles are available for anyone to

       pick up and use in your home complex.  Most people will be living in

       large spacious apartment complexes that come with all you should

       need including a fleet of cars and bicycles to get around with.  No one

       owns them, they are for the use of all who live there.



12.  Every home will have an interactive interface that connects you

       to the net with a holographic display for connecting with people and

       information anywhere you go in your home.  a separate device in the

       form of glasses with audio/visual interactive capabilities for when you

       not home if you want it.



13.  Transportation will be as easy as stepping into your vehicle, and

        telling it where you want to go.  Based on distance the vehicle will

        decide whether to fly for long distances, use roadways for short

        distances, or a version of rail where your vehicle gets on a sort of

        maglev highway system.



14.  Since our world has finite resources, the push to explore and seed

       other planets and galaxies takes off.



15.  A space station is built on the moon and asteroids are mined for

       the materials needed to build spaceships capable of carrying 100,000

       people each.  Each station will have it's own recycling water source

       and a hydroponics farm in which to grow everything needed to

       survive.  The light wave has been harnessed to allow for lightspeed

       travel, as well as the gravity wave for slower speeds.  This makes

       reaching other galaxies attainable within a few generations.  The

       initial crew and supports total 8,000 people with the 100 k capacity

       to allow for the growth of population over time.  Everyone on board

       will be cross trained on at least 10 different jobs based on their

       capacity to learn them.  Gravity is achieved through both rotation and

       artficially induced gravity which will be increased overtime to both

       allow for healthy bones and muscles as well as prepare for the

       possibility of finding a habitable world with a higher gravity than

        earth's.



16.  Few real manual labor jobs remain and they are split up with the

       entire populace taking part to make things happen.  For example lets

       say someone needs to ride on a garbage truck to keep an eye on what

       gets put out into the trash.  Robots do most of the work but human

       eyes are still needed to make sure kids and animals don't get caught in

       the robotic arms.  you may have to sign up for 5-10 hours per week

       for community service to do this job.  There are no regular long work

       hours as  there is a sign up to do certain things based on what it is you

       want for a good or service.  So lets say you want the newest version of

       a piano for your own entertainment.  You sign up to work at a factory

       to make this piano for your self and everyone else who is currently

       there who wants one.  It could be as little as a few months assignment

       or as long as a 10 year assignment based or if you like doing this job

       or not.  Most things can be made through 3 D printing but some

       assembly is required for those things that are created from different

       materials like it is for an instrument like a piano  or guitar.

       Buildings use extensive green technology and renewable resources.

       flouresing anaeorbic algae is housed in liquid filled columns that

       produce both hydrogen for heating and cooling as well as a soft light

       that allows for energy consumption reductions at night as no lights are

       needed to be able get around on the outer corridors of buildings.

       Windows serve as both an energy source as well as natural lighting.

       Opaque to clear solar cells are built into each window. also the heat

       from sunlight is converted into usable energy        


 
17.  Everyone has a say on new laws.   The best term I can come up with

       for this is a Socialized Democracy.





RESOURCE AND KNOWLEDGE BASED SOCIETY  pt 2



Try to think of it like this: Each community sets up it's own labor

needs and how many man hours are needed to get the things done that

absolutely can't be let go, like trash collection, electrical grid upkeep,

nursing, teaching, roadwork and other ongoing construction, water

and sewer upkeep, food production and distribution, etc. That is

where the number of hours of community service is created. Currently

most cities have a relatively small number of people doing all those

things. We are a society stuck on the accumulation of stuff. If

everyone has enough of the basics and the stuff you want can be

achieved through 3D printing or working in a factory for a short time

to get the stuff you want or think you need, then most people would

be free to pick what they truly want to do with their lives. You could

choose to become a physicist if that was something that interested you

or you could choose to be a full time garbage monitor if that is more

what you would like to do. You could also choose to be a painter,

farmer, scientist, mathematician, factory worker, teacher, doctor,

nurse, or whatever strikes your fancy. The difference would be in that

you would take the pursuit of income and profit out of the picture so

you could be free to try new jobs or experiences out..

Everyone has a say on how laws are put forth and that would help

create a more equal society over time but you would still need a

central government and judicial system to make sure resources like

food are grown and distributed evenly. Our current system is unfair to

the majority of the population. A few have enough money to buy

whatever they wish, while at the other end of the spectrum they have

to buy what they can afford (if they can afford anything at all as some

have been reduced to going back to hunter gathering) which is often

unhealthy garbage.

Instead of a wage per hour, the new currency of sorts could just be based on the number of minutes or

 hours worked.  If you invent something that helps humanity greatly (Like inventing a viable

 teleportation device)  you could receive a bonus 1000 hours of work time added to your tally.

  This would be used for those things not provided for in the society as a whole.  Since most basics are

provided, it's not likely this "currency" would actually need to be used.  Let's say though that some services

would need to be paid for (like a having a personal trainer, chef, or massage therapist.  You could then

trade your hours worked for their labor to give you the service you want.      They in turn could then turn

 around and get another service for themselves by paying for it with the hours worked pay out they have

received.  In this way there would still be an incentive to work for something you want but no one would be

 making massively more than anyone else.







Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea,  like other communist countries

are  dictatorships.  That is not what a resource based economy has to

be.  Here is how I think it could work.  Ordinary citizens get to write

the laws and the entire population gets to vote on them.  You could

have an equal power triumverate (3 elected people in charge of

distribution of food and other goods along with the power to sign

laws that the people want in place)   that would either agree to sign

the peoples will into law or not.  The people can over ride the

triumverate veto with an 80% vote.   That should help ensure that

minority interests are less likely to be infringed upon.  Also you

would still need a judicial branch to decide if laws are constitutional

and that minorities were not over run and have their rights taken away

by majorities. and to make sure laws are either followed or

consequences are mete out.


RESOURCE AND KNOWLEDGE BASED SOCIETY   pt 3


The new currency could be just the number of minutes or hours worked and tasks
accomplished, instead of our current fiat currency.

The incentive value of it would be there without massive hoarding taking place.



The Venus project envisions everyone having few or no possessions. I agree with this
concept for many things.

If you wanted to use a camera or a log splitter, you would just check those items out like you
do for a library book now.

No money would be necessary to buy an item that you might only use for a few days a year.

This would also eliminate the current built in obsolescence model we currently use.

We could actually build products that last, which would allow for less waste of resources.



I personally like the idea of aquaponics and hydroponics for a food supply.

It uses less land, and can be done in an in ground green house that would allow

for crop production all year round in many, if not most areas.



This new version of currency would act like money in so far as you can trade your labor credits
for someone else's labor.

The difference is in the how much labor can you do to accumulate those credits.

There are only so many hours in a week.  Yes you could work 120 hours a week if you wanted
 to accumulate a lot of credits,but what for?  If you hire someone to clean your house, walk
your dog and mow your lawn, because you haven't got time to do those things yourself,
would you really be gaining much from your excessive self imposed work load?

 If you guarantee everyone food, a home, and healthcare, I would think that most people
would do what was required (8-10 hours/week)

 and possibly another 10-30 hours more to have enough credits to spend on the goods and
 services they want or need, but I doubt many would even want to work more than that.
After all, you already would have a roof over your head and food on the table.

Tasks completed should be worth more than time at your job provided quality is achieved.
  Here is an example:



If you go to work making widgets for 10 hours (600 minutes)  and you complete 40 quality
tasks you would get 5 minutes for each completed task X 40 completed tasks (200 minutes) so
 your total  you would earn would be 800 minutes that day (13 hours 20 minutes)
If you only completed 5 tasks your tally would be 625 minutes.
If you completed a 100 tasks You would get 1100 minutes (18 hrs 20 minutes)
This would be the productivity incentive.



Granted working on a large theoretical project that may or may not have real world
applications would have to be dealt with a bit differently.

 Instead of 5 minutes per completed task, it could have a bonus of 100,000 minutes if your
theory results in an actual application.  The reason the amount is so high is because it could
take a decade or more to come up with an actual quality working application.

Lets say you are trying to do a viable molecular transport device ("Beam me up Scotty!")  It
could take decades to work out the science and do testing on such a device so that it would
have a practical and safe application.

THE RESOURCE AND KNOWLEDGE BASED SOCIETY



Do you really want an alternative to our current system? How about

we try to work towards having a knowledge and resource based

society. I have links to 2 of the other proposals for such a society and

there are others as well.





The Resource and Knowledge Based Society

                 AKA   Socialized Democracy



1.  All humans get a small house to live in regardless of the capacity

My ideals for a better society. Hope for the present and future political possibilities, as well as humanity as a whole.


YEP.

I'm one of those keyboard jackhammers that representative Steve King (R-IA) was talking about and proud of it.  Here are the reasons why...


I'm for People not corporations.

I'm for a good quality education and higher learning that is accessible to all.

I'm for everyone having access to healthcare and to not go bankrupt because you wound up with a catastrophic illness or injury.

I'm for everyone having enough food to eat, a roof over their heads and heat in the winter.

I'm for work place safety and giving everyone who wants a job to have one.

I'm for clean air, and clean water and land that is not contaminated with harmful substances like tar sands bitumen.

I'm for fixing, improving and updating our crumbling infrastructure.

I'm for having our seniors and disabled citizenry to be able to not live in poverty. 

I'm for spending money on research to find new cures, new technological innovations and to have a greater understanding of the universe and the world we live on.

I'm for clean energy sources like wind, solar, geothermal, and ocean wave power.  

I'm for giving citizens a living wage because if you work you shouldn't live in poverty.  

I'm for making sure children are well taken care of.  

I'm for teaching parenting skills and financial skills in high school.

I'm for allowing children to receive college credit for their classes if it an advanced class or having them take remote classes through colleges that offer it.  

I'm for publicly funded elections where anyone can run who wants to with no need for a giant bank account.  

I'm for bringing honesty back into news reporting and to allow journalist do do the investigative journalism they used to do without fear of reprisals or jail time.

I'm for re-instating the Sherman Anti-Trust Act so we could break up these mega banks and corporations that are dictating our laws and buying our elections

I'm for getting rid of all lobbyists and to allow individual citizens to write laws that the entire country can vote on and give their opinions on before it is taken up into being made a law.

I'm for allowing analysis in plain english of what a law is actually designed to do so that no one is duped by the false labels that many current laws possess, and to give the true costs and savings involved as far as can be determined.  

I'm for transparency in government.  If it was paid for with your tax dollars, you should have access.  

I'm for teaching parenting skills and financial skills in high school.

I'm for allowing children to receive college credit for their classes if it's an advanced class or having them take remote classes through colleges that offer it. 

I'm for publicly funded elections where anyone can run who wants to with no need for a giant bank account. 

I'm for giving every person who works a living wage until we can get rid of capitalism.

I'm for a resource based economy and to do away with the capitalistic system.






For those who don't know what a resource based economy might look like, I posted the following on my page Oct 13 2013: ----------------------------------------------- What does everyone think of this idea?

The resource and knowledge based society

1. All humans get a small house to live in regardless of the capacity to work and think. 

2. All humans receive the nutrition they need to survive and thrive.

3. Money is no longer a needed commodity.

4. The more you contribute to the society the more you receive in honors, goods and services.

5. Jobs will no longer be indefinitely retained at the same place. 

6. Every human has the right to higher learning for free. 

7. Every human has the chance to be innovators without the need for income.

8. Robots will do most manual labor. 

9. Exploration and conservation of our environment becomes key in the happiness and survival of the human race. 

10. Energy is gleaned from sun, wind, ocean currants and wave action, harnessing the power in the magnetic field, and for space travel lightwave energy is harnessed.

11. Goods will be allocated based on when you signed up for a thing and the demand for such a thing. Bicycles are available for anyone to pick up and use in your home complex. Most people will be living in large spacious apartment complexes that come with all you should need including a fleet of cars and bicycles to get around with. No one owns them, they are for the use of all who live there. 

12. Every home will have an interactive interface that connects you to the net with a holographic display for connecting with people and information anywhere you go in your home. a separate device in the form of glasses with audio/visual interactive capabilities for when you not home if you want it. 

13. Transportation will be as easy as stepping into your vehicle, and telling it where you want to go. Based on distance the vehicle will decide whether to fly for long distances, use roadways for short distances, or a version of rail where your vehicle gets on a sort of Mag-Lev highway system. 

14. Since our world has finite for resources, the push to explore and seed other planets and galaxies takes off. 

15. A space station is built on the moon and asteroids are mined for the materials needed to build spaceships capable of carrying 100,000 people each. Each station will have it's own recycling water source and a hydroponics farm in which to grow everything needed to survive. The light wave has been harnessed to allow for light speed travel, as well as the gravity wave for slower speeds. This makes reaching other galaxies attainable within a few generations. The initial crew and supports total 8,000 people with the 100 k capacity to allow for the growth of population over time. Everyone on board will be cross trained on at least 10 different jobs based on their capacity to learn them. Gravity is achieved through both rotation and artificially induced gravity which will be increased overtime to both allow for healthy bones and muscles as well as prepare for the possibility of finding a habitable world with a higher gravity than earth's. 

16. Few real manual labor jobs remain and they are split up with the entire populace taking part to make things happen. For example lets say someone needs to ride on a garbage truck to keep an eye on what gets put out into the trash. Robots do most of the work but human eyes are still needed to make sure kids and animals don't get caught in the robotic arms. you may have to sign up for 5-10 hours per week for community service to do this job. There are no regular long work hours as there is a sign up to do certain things based on what it is you want for a good or service. So lets say you want the newest version of a piano for your own entertainment. You sign up to work at a factory to make this piano for your self and everyone else who is currently there who wants one. It could be as little as a few months assignment or as long as a 10 year assignment based or if you like doing this job or not. Most things can be made through 3 D printing but some assembly is required for those things that are created from different materials like it is for an instrument like a piano or guitar.

Buildings use extensive green technology and renewable resources.   Fluorescing anaerobic algae is housed in liquid filled columns that produce both hydrogen for heating and cooling as well as a soft light that allows for energy consumption reductions at night as no lights are needed to be able get around on the outer corridors of buildings. Windows serve as both an energy source as well as natural lighting. Opaque to clear solar cells are built into each window. also the heat from sunlight is converted into usable energy.

  




Do all these things make me a bad person?

  I doubt it.
