Economic freedom - A living wage
to pay bills and endure economic hardships. This abysmal
Very few people experience any sort of economic freedom.

    Economic freedom can be defined as total economic
    independence. In this economic structure, it’s almost
    impossible for the vast majority. Quality of life has
    gone down with disposable income. People are forced
    to take hideous jobs, and work for an existential insult
    defined in dollar terms.

    Governments have been out of touch with economic
    realities for so long that they still think/pretend that the
    old theories work.  Worse, they think/pretend that they’
    ll work in future. In a society where whole classes of
    income earning jobs are about to go extinct, the
    systemic ignorance of human realities and future
    issues is not acceptable.

    Pretending the future isn’t there is as absurd as it is
    dangerous. The economic scythe is swinging. The last
    generation to attain any sort of economic freedom
    were the Boomers. Generation X managed a more or
    less OK quality of life, but a much lower standard of
    living, plagued by neurosis and massive inflation
    called, ridiculously, “growth”. Generation Y is treading
    water at best, sinking at worst. Gen Y won’t be able to
    do a lot to help Gen Z.

    With this has come a “lifestyle”. The term is almost an
    obscenity, but less articulate. Most people experience
    unemployment and various degrees of economic
    hardship on a more or less universal basis.

    The Working Poor are now hunting the charities for
    support. People are going without food to pay bills for
    basic amenities. The alleged chances to better oneself
    have been incinerated by overpriced, anachronistic
    education methods and policies. Housing is now an
    expensive luxury for most people. Gen Z will be unlikely
    to be able to own property unless born rich. This is
    Failure, expressed in human realities on a massive
    scale.

    (The Charter of Human Rights should include all the
    basics – Food, power, water, education, and housing.
    The molestation of humanity by deprivation is as much
    of an abuse as any other kind of atrocity.)

    Economic freedom, in this system, is almost
    impossible. With the dependency on ridiculous
    economics and economic models come appalling jobs,
    full of tyrannical abuses and bullying. The degree of
    acceptance of these nauseating working conditions is
    based on degrees of desperation. People tolerate the
    intolerable, to the extent they can.

    With this global graveyard of an economy comes
    another, less obvious, issue – The inability of people
    to function at their best. Talent is wasted in giga-hours
    of time used to merely survive. Skills rot away.
    Knowledge is attained but not used effectively.

    If people had actual economic freedom, they’d:

  • Tell the office maniacs and petty vermin where to go.
  • Gravitate to using their talents.
  • Have far more scope to develop.
  • Be able to reduce life stresses which have become
    actual psychoses, to the point of being an epidemic.  
  • Be able to put more money in to the economy.
  • Have more choices in all aspects of life.

    As long as money is used as the practical definition of
    the human ability to live and quality of life, economic
    freedom is the only worthwhile objective for most
    people.  It doesn’t matter how you achieve it. The work
    ethic is strangely out of place in a world dominated by
    the repulsive, unethical, and largely useless, world of
    finance. Greedy mediocrities are the role models;
    mediocrity and worship of greed is the result.  

    Winning a lottery is as valid a form of financial success
    as doing nothing of value for a large salary in this
    world. The heroes of this sewer of a society aren’t
    “successful” – They’re lucky, criminal, or corrupt, or all
    of the above.  You don’t need to apologize for theft
    any more – The biggest thieves are considered clever
    and even, bizarrely, intelligent. T

    Theft is no indicator of intelligence. Animals can steal.
    Not many of them win industry awards for their dazzling
    achievements, though.

    Economic freedom is an option which doesn’t currently
    exist even in the laziest, smuggest theories for the vast
    majority of the world’s population. It’s too unlikely even
    for the chronic economic liars. Things could be very
    different, with surprisingly little actual effort.

    Imagine a world of actual prosperity. Imagine diverting
    money from useless crony-driven, political policies to
    actual economics. Imagine actually getting some value
    out of your taxes apart from employing politicians to
    give public money to their owners.

    The public pays for everything, directly or otherwise.
    Every disaster is funded with public money, and the
    public can’t even rely on getting the most basic
    services. Imagine a world where the public was funding
    the public, not the parasites.

    No, this isn’t communism or even socialism. It’s applied
    cynicism. Communism and socialism created a
    rhetorical norm which didn’t exist, then spent decades
    pretending they had a clue what they were doing. The
    USSR destroyed itself through its own mismanagement
    and misjudgement.  “Redistributing the wealth” is just
    lousy arithmetic.

    (This isn’t about “the rich”, who will be rich until they
    figure out some brilliant new ways of going broke as
    nearly all of them do, sooner or later. It’s not about the
    generationally insular, who have managed to avoid the
    abrasions of life for so long. They’re irrelevant. Let
    them be rich and insular; they’ll probably do less
    damage that way, to adapt a quote from Yes Prime
    Minister. This is about getting humanity permanently
    out of the hole it’s dug for itself.)

    The democracies have managed to achieve the same
    thing, by mismanagement and a bizarre insistence on
    ignoring economic facts of all kinds. Poverty has been
    on the increase for decades in the West and the net
    result has been a few tacky press releases and infinite
    self-congratulation by the senile, the sycophantic, and
    the stupid. Nothing at all of any real value has been
    done by these real-world addicts to address real world
    issues; nor is that situation likely to change.

    This is the Age of Imbecility in economic terms. As long
    as system-driven economic disasters are tolerated,
    they’ll get bigger and worse. The failure to recognize
    the chronic obsolescence of the existing economic
    system has led to failure in all areas of human
    existence. The failure to recognize the approaching
    extinction event of the old economy is the current
    working model of future blunders.

    Nor is the decision-making process any better. Big
    ideas, the few still around, are put in the hands of
    intellectual and moral weaklings. Illiterates scrabble to
    find a few words to lie their tiny heads off about any
    given situation. Disinformation is now a full scale
    industry spending billions on creating misleading
    nonsense about any given situation.

    Nothing is actually achieved, solutions are ephemeral
    at best, and the catastrophes keep rolling along. The
    two dimensional approach to the unforgiving three
    dimensional realities is doomed to fail.

    With economic freedom, the default response to the
    Big Lie is to tell it where to go and make sure it gets
    there. Desperate people have to endure this pseudo-
    intellectual rubbish; economically free people don’t
    have to put up with a second of it.

    Economic freedom is the ability to be oneself without
    fear. Fear is the driver of economic realities as they
    are now. Insecurity, financial pressures, constant
    added pressures, you name it; it’s the antithesis of
    economic freedom.

    A living wage is a game changer by definition for those
    in the lower financial brackets. The managerial bottom-
    feeders cease to have an influence.  You can walk
    away from a job that’s killing you with no qualms. You
    can tell the maniac in accounts or the lunatic pedant in
    your admin job where to go. You don’t have to fear
    every new expense. You don’t have to fear the
    consequences of following your better judgment in how
    you live your life, either.

    You can forget about those hideous incidents and
    experiences trying to scrape a few bucks together to
    deal with some new cash crisis. You can afford to be
    healthy, happy, and carefree. You can even afford to
    be yourself.

    Beats crap out of the alternative.
