The Mutualist Society

  • The worlds social problems have proved intractable because our social agencies and political pundits have adopted liberalism as the fundamental ideology of our time. Freedom itself has come to be measured by the ideology of ownership. This allegience to the ideology of ownership is expressed most fully in private enterprise or what is generally referred to as Capitalism. Capitalism is tied to the liberal state. Liberals have corrupted the idea of ownership. Liberal ownership is called private property but is more properly considered a special case of public ownership, in fact a variation of communism. Libertarians reject socialism in favour of the unfettered freedom that is corporate capitalism. What they are doing is distorting liberal ownership to its uttermost limits but libertarians cannot make the final leap they cannot et rid of the over-sight of the liberal state, some call it the result Globalism or crony capitalism. Capitalism is centered on ownership of property and this necessitates the existence of the liberal state. The liberal state is a corruption and illigitimate. We own only what we create. We cannot own what we never created. This fundamental law cannot be set aside by the state.

  • Libertarianism is feedom based on state chartered property ownership. Libertarian ideology takes precedence over humanities civil liberties according to the laws of the state. Libertarians externalize costs onto society and future generations. Libertarians put the rights of property ownership before the rights of human beings. Freedom for a Libertarian is property ownership and the accumulation of assets. Freedom according to Libertarians is the right to pursue riches and accumulate property at the expense of society. The end justifies the means and the means is the creation of social costs and the end a pool of accumulated assets. The necessity to pay costs one does not create is not compatible with any system of ethics and is not rationally excusable. Libertarian ideals conflict with the laws of the universe and the rights of man. We have the political and economic right to say no to costs we did not create. The rights of the creator are above the rights of the creation. This however is not part of liberalism.

  • It is not rocket science. If the harm done the planet is not paid for by those who do the harm the cost is passed onto society. The failure to properly account for costs is the source of debt and the source of all of our social problems. Creating debt is not rational or moral. Cooperation is based on the existence of rational exchanges. So long as individuals are not required to pay the costs they create society will continue to encounter a rather large subset of problems.  

  • The desire to avoid costs makes it seem reasonable to move jobs to where wages are at their lowest while shipping production to where wages are the highest. When looked at from the perspective of the ecology of the earth these actions are not rational because they produce costs that ultimately stress the environment and harm the ecology on which all life depends. Social costs offends the principles on which our rationality and success rests and the civil liberties of mankind depend. Dominion means we are responsible for the costs our actions create. We were given a world which is perfectly organized and which allocates costs correctly but the state has usurped human rights the right of all persons to what they create.

  • If people have no jobs or only low paying jobs they are invisible to a market that reacts only to money spent. Without money to buy goods and services the consumer cannot make his or her wants known. The unemployed and poor are viewed as an expense by Socialist states.

  • The economy is an exchange. People trade goods and services using money as a medium of exchange. Without money people cannot buy what they need. If a consumer must drive 50 miles to purchase products he or she is telling the market there is no local demand for the goods he or she buys. But it also tells the market there is a high Demand for cars and gas stations and transportation businesses to move goods from point A to point B. Demand for goods is registered only where the point of sale is transacted.

  • Goods can be imported from all over the world, jobs cannot. Jobs are always local. The market does not calculate the costs associated with the loss of jobs. Debt drains local markets of money and reduces the signals sent to the productive sector.

  • Rationalists believe a Third Way exists between the unfettered freedom of libertarianism and the direct control our our wealth by the state as in communism. Both paths are forms of liberalism. Liberals may create social costs for either the rich or poor. Ultimately history is the story of the State and its social costs at the expense of the rest of us. The principle of Mutual Rights requires we demand the economic and political power to resist the imposition of costs unto society and future generations. The authority of the state is obtained from the governed through the agency of an agreement between the interested parties. The document by which the people transfer some specific rights to the state is called a Constitution. Only those powers specifically assigned to the governing body by the people are legitimate.
