Here i am, being "Foundationally Pragmatic" again. Maybe this will stimulate a good idea for the good use of the "Citizen Party".
As upset as i am about the situations and circumstances of the state of Our World, Nation and State, I can't bring myself to believe that every corporation is malignant for Our species.
Are there some corporations that harm Humanity less than others? Shouldn't We be compiling a list of the more benevolent ones?
Is corporatism inherently and incurably 'evil"? Is this bad planetary effect the nature of corporatism?
Or is it that corporatism was intended to be benign and got off track?
Were they good for Humanity in their beginnings? But went too far for the almighty profit motive and now cause more harm than good?
I sure would like some answers to these questions. Truthful ones.
You see, I can't help but rememebr the lesson of history that revealed that the first explorations, that led to the discovery of America, were royalty and/or corporate backed and financed. The same for the establishment of the colonies too.
Could it be that corporations are inherently a mix of good and evil? They do good, but at a terrible cost to the Many, for the benefit of the few. Which invites the abuse of the Many by the few. Invitation well accepted, I would say.
The first corporations came from the few who had the wealth to risk in ventures. So, this makes corporations, by nature, a tool of the few for the few.
Hmmm. This leads me to wonder what the opposite phenomena, one of the Many for the Many, would be. Owning ones own tools and skillfully applying them toward good products, would be part of this opposition. Being at least part owner of the space in which the tools are used would be another. Each Worker getting his or her fair share of the profits from the products.
Hmmm What could We call this opposite Human Construct? What words should We use to contribute to this new word? Never mind using Latin or Greek derivitives. We've aped those failed cultures enough. Lets build this new term out of good ol American English. Out of Now, not then.
"ProMaWorkism"?..."Promaworkism"? Well. Something like that. Let "We The People" decide...if they so choose.
I think I will start a contest for the best word for this new economic ideology. Maybe even put up a hundred bucks as a first prize. Let "The Many" be the final judge.
That's about all I got right now. DAN 1
