How can we share the abundance of this planet without destroying it and ourselves?
Public discussion tends to focus on the tax end of the wealth distribution equation and very little on the pay end. Why is that? Why aren't people who actually transform ideas into reality (laborers) valued as much as money handlers, dreamers and organizers in society? Why do we insist on inflatiing our value while deflating the value of others when, ultimately, we end up viewing one another with contempt?
By not addressing fair pay and social responsibility issues, aren't we forcing unnecessary growth in government to protect victims from predators. Not only do predators want all the money at the pay end, they want to keep it at the tax end, so it is only natural they use their wealth to influence (bribe) lawmakers into reducinge their tax liability, thus enriching themselves at both ends of the spectrum.
These same individuals (including corporations) loudly complain about "big government " and too much government regulation while, at the same time, they express unfair and predatory behavior. It's the kind of behavior that creates the need for big government. Isn't this living with our eyes wide shut?
In life and business, how many of us ask if what we are doing is good? "Do my (our) actions improve the quality of life or undermine it? Do they increase humanity’s chances for survival or threaten it?"
Active and thoughtful participation in the creation of our reality is the change we are waiting for!
