Life

Life:

Life is about choices and economics is the vehicle through which our choices are realized. People have both life and choices or neither. To have life and choice we need economics for it is in economics that choice is expressed. Economics exists only when freedom of choice exists, competition destroys the economy and creates immorality. An economy is a place where people exchange goods and services without let or hindrance by the state. Ethics and rationality are synomyms. 

Choices can only be made by individuals. But individuals can only make choices in the context of an ethical economy. Real choices are market based because a real choice is made in an economy. Real choices have economic consequences. Economic consequences are empirically quantifiable.

Choices require assets. Choices create markets. Choices change the disposition of assets. Choices add value to the planet. Cooperation is the way the world progresses but acting out of compulsion and necessity consumes more value than is created.

It is not the amount of assets a community contains it is the capital that it can access. A small amount of gold available to the economy is worth more than a large amount buried in granite or commercial vaults. Wealth is created by rational exchanges. Economic rational exchanges require a unit of account. We need to measure economic activity. Debt is the destruction of capital.

Without money choice is an illusion. Without assets there are no choices. Without choices ethical reason is impossible. Poor people cannot create wealth for they do not have the assets on which to build capital. Poor people cannot choose in the way those with assets can because they do not have the basis of on which choices are made. Poverty de-humanizes people because it deprives them of the ability to make economic choices and thus poor people are deprived of the ability to function on a truly human level.

A primary concern of Rationalists is to ensure assets and thus choices are put into the hands of the productive sector. Eliminating debt is the secret to a successful economy. Personal ownership is rational and produces economic activity. We all understand and accept personal ownership. Personal ownership forms the foundation of economic activity. Private ownership is a legal right sanctioned by the state given to a legal person but the state does not have or the authority to charter rights and assign ownership. There is no Constitutional vehicle by which the state can be given authority over human rights. Private ownership is constitutionally invalid and an infringement upon mankinds human rights. Private ownership produces inequality and division because private ownership infringes our human rights. 

Private ownership is possible only for private entities created by authority of the state using a Letter of Patent. Rationalism is not consistent with the existence of legal beings.

Environmentalism is a natural concern of human beings because there is no disjuncture between caring for the planet and business activity. Business ethics and environmentalism are inherently compatible both reflect the needs of the economy. Personal ownership is the foundation on which the economy rests. Private ownership along with free enterprise tends to create social, economic and ethical divisions due to their unconstitutionality. We have the right to possess what we create. Organizations ought not to have a right to possess resources given to them by the legal machinations of the state. There is no constitutional authority by which the state can authorize the formation of personhood. But the state has convinced us that assets need to be privately owned that is owned by organizational entities, as part of the free enterprise system. Private ownership legitimizes and is legitimated by the state. Private ownership is that form of ownership that is legitimized by the state by the state creating a fictitious legal person or subject then giving a letter of patent to authorize a claim against a pool of assets. This is tantamount to a Crime Against Humanity.

The state sets itself up as the de facto owner of what rightfully belongs to the people and then robs us of the value that is ours by right assigning it to an entity it creates, licences and/or legislates into existence. This is the foundation and source of all social costs. The State is not God and cannot create existences. In democracies people will have an inalienable right to what they produce. We own the resources under our care. Organizations do not have priority over human rights.

Business consume the raw materials out of which products and services emerge. But we do not own what is claimed on the basis of the power and authority of the state. We own the value-added not the foundation on which our work is done. The created does not hold authority over the creator. Upon this is based the authority or all constitutions and covenants. The state takes its authority from the people and can never hold final authority over a citizen. Babylon is the present state. Liberalism is the philosophy and politics and economics of Babylon.

People know right from wrong. We know when an action adds value or wastes what has value. We know when we face more or less risk. No one is free to make whatever choice seems to benefit the individual at the cost of others. Right actions create value and reduce risk.  All humans know the difference between creating value and consuming value. We know the difference between credits and debits and between gain and loss. We know what waste is and we know waste is wrong because in the final analysis waste generates risk. Waste diminishes civilization. We all know when someone is cooperating and when they are consuming. We know what rationality is and we know what responsibility is and we know what responsibility is not. Our corrupt and conflicting economic system makes waste seem a good option. The possibility of getting something for nothing makes reneging on the social convenant seem the rational thing to do.  Some people may feel it is better to throw garbage on the side of the road than pay to have it disposed of properly but if we all did this our costs would rise exponentially. These kinds of things happen because liberal governments legitimize social costs.
