Vores samfund mangler et meget vigtigt offentligt embede. Statsnarren. Det er en person, der vil have ret til at tale med magthaverne, ministrene og andre myndigheder... ikke kun hvad de ønsker at høre, eller hvad den officielle opposition (støttet af rivaliserende klaner, oligarker og nabostater),.. men også noget... godt, lyst og korrekt…
I gamle dage var der sådan en stilling, den hed "Royal jester". Vitsen blev tilladt meget, han blev ikke fornærmet, tog ikke imod våben og sænkede ikke alle hundene. Ikke desto mindre fik vittigheden ofte lov til at lyde ganske fornuftige overvejelser, om end måske i en komisk form. For at være ærlig, kan jeg ikke lide at gå til meningsmålingerne. Men ved valget af klovnens chefstat ville jeg være taget af sted.
Our society lacks one really important government job. The one of a Government Jester. It should be a person who will tell rulers, ministers and all those in power... not only what they want to hear or what official opposition likes to scream out (while being supported by competing clans, magnates and neighboring states)…
but also something ...kind, light and right...
In olden days there was a position of a royal jester. A jester was allowed to do and say a lot and no none got offended or put dogs on him. However, a jester was often allowed to make quite sober statements even though he made it in a humorous way.
Honestly, I don't like to vote for anyone. But I would surely vote for some main government jester candidate.
The reason for the revolution of 1917 in Russia was pride. The level of shit and contempt for the lower classes in the heads of the Russian aristocracy became so high that the system could not withstand the pressure and exploded. However, the French, German, and all other revolutions were of the same nature.
Civilizations are dying out for two reasons. Or they will degrade into a single-celled Paradise. Either technology and complexity reach the point where hell becomes unbearable. The unbearability of life in hell leads to the self-destruction of the system.
The real king is naked because he is real. The king has nothing to fear and does not need a dress. The idealist is the opposite of the naked king. An idealist is a cowardly fake, an empty dress without a king.
Democracy is a mask. Mask smiling, good and fair. Anything can hide under this mask, but it does not matter. The evolutionary progress and advantage of democracy over other forms of government lies precisely in this public goodness. In order not to hide under this mask, formally it is forced to somehow match its shape. And this form is the only thing that can hold back the monster hidden under it.
The State is a universal public enemy seeking to stop the war of all against all. To survive in this context, the State has to divide people by cultivating individualism among them; this will prevent people from teaming up to strike a violent, collective blow. Pointing to an external or internal enemy is another great way to shift the public focus elsewhere.
Although our society is post-industrial, it does not mean that people should be left without jobs or that they should work in the service industry as salesmen, waiters, etc. It rather means the transition to the production of unique, non-mass market goods, made with a high degree of novelty and manual production. It is moving away from cheap mass production towards individual, piece production with a large surplus value. It is the moving away from handicraft and stamping towards art. Production is not a craft, but an art in the post-industrial society. Now, it`s not a craftsman, but an artist who should be engaged in production.
In order for the food supply not to be eaten out by predators, herbivorous need shelter and sanctuaries inaccessible by predators. Otherwise, all predators eat their prey and then they all die out.
The same happens in economics, small business needs shelter against big business and network business. A social agreement, which will grant small businesses access to retail, loans, marketplaces and customers, is quite necessary.
See the point. Having printed money, they created it from Nothing. Next, having conversed their form several times, they accumulated a huge amount of dead energy in the form of debts. Now it’s necessary to erase these debts and send them back to Nothing, thus finishing the money conversion cycle. It can be said that money was created from light, and if it is burnt now, it will become light again.
Most part of the GDP is generated in the services-related industries and the economy itself is hit by the crisis of overproduction and declining profitability due to over-increased competition and reduced demand in a post-industrial society.
It is necessary to reduce the working day, increasing productivity to revive such an economy. Working 4-7 hours a day, people will have more time to spend their money, thereby stimulating demand for services.
The system where those who work pay for those who don’t work, is necessary not for spawning parasites, but because there aren`t enough jobs for everyone. Having a job is a great pleasure. And you remember that pleasure should be paid for.
Truth is born in dispute and conflict. This does not mean that the parties will come to peace, convince each other, or one of the parties will definitely win. This means that one or more truths will be born.
The unity and struggle of opposites is not the struggle of evil and good, but the struggle of opposite types of evil. Evil hates each other, but being unable to separate itself from itself, lives and suffers.
There is nothing wrong with so little truth and light. 1% of light in the realm of 99% of darkness is the normal state of things. You don't need a better one. The best is overkill and the enemy of the good.
The difference between a human society and a mycelium, hive, or anthill is the comparative isolation and independence of individual individuals. The hive is egoistic and full of pride, which creates in it fear and isolation from the world. People are more open and this gives them certain perspectives.
