After having handed out a number of introductions leading into The Omnist Theory and Manifesto and seeing the response. I have come to the conclusion that very few people will actually bother to read any of it. Q sad face. It would appear that since those of both sides feel that they each have a “pretty good bead on things”, I.E. what is happening that is wrong in the world, all they really care to hear about is what we can DO about it all.
The sad truth is that those on the Right and Left have a decent picture of the problem… but only when combined can we well see the fullness of the problems we face. After all, both sides feel that the other is part of the problem and while each can see clearly how the other is part of the problem… few can see how their side is part of the problem. But regardless of my desires to show how the fallowing solutions really do solve the actual problems we face… I will simply present them as stand alone exurbs from The Manifesto.
The points that precede these solution proposals are…
“The Mortal Disease” in world politics and economics, is the problem of one faction gaining political control and imposing a kind of tyranny over the minority factions via the power of law and / or economics. The Mortal Disease currently manifests in 2 ways. Big Business + Government imposing an economic tyranny upon The People. And certain factions of The People gaining political power and imposing a kind of tyranny on yet other factions. Our governmental system was specifically designed to help deal with the mortal disease problem between differing factions of The People… but never a Big Business + Government relationship. I.E. the biggest problem we face is Big Business + Government.
Law is an ineffective regulator to those with the power to either get around the law, or worse, hijack it’s power to their own ends. I.E. Law can be used effectively to enforce will on The People, but not Big Business in our current system. Therefore, any attempt to use the power of governmental regulation and law to solve the problem of Big Business, most likely will end with giving Government yet more power over economics, which will inevitably be hijacked by Big Business towards it’s own ends.
Translation: If we leave economics alone to do as it pleases bad things will happen. If we seek to impose governmental regulation and control via the power of Law on economics, businesses powerful enough to bribe and bed politicians, will inevitable gain access to that power… and makes thing far worse. It is a “damned if you do damned if you don’t” scenario currently.
- We are all, on some level, currently aware of the futility of the problem we face. The question is, “what can we do about it”? We can’t well rely on men to regulate men as men can be bribed and corrupted. But neither can we just let economics run totally unregulated. So how does one find a way to regulate economics in a far less corruptible fashion?
The fallowing are the current ideas as exurbed from The Omnist Manifesto. The only thing not well covered by this intro is how competition forces business to give a fair wage and fair price… and as such businesses primary concern in politics is getting around this pesky little problem that hampers their profit margins (at our expense naturally). The theory wonders at using this “law of economics” that forces fairness in economics, between employee and employer, to force, to a far greater degree, fairness in economics… rather than actual law and governmental regulation which can be so easily corrupted.
As such the first proposal is in fact simply to use the power of governmental to impose and maintain a fierce state of competition in economics. Past that, Competition has it’s failings, and along with the failings of Law, they are listed in my Manifesto. Where Competition fails Law has a good chance of working, where Law fails Competition has a good chance of working.
Simply put, while one cannot force business via law to give a fair wage and sales price (as law can be corrupted… or in it’s effectiveness destroy the economy) Competition can.
That being said, we still need effective enforcement of regulation on some things in economics and politics. As such the fallowing proposals were formed.
