Some people may think this strange but when I think about big issues like economics and government, one philosophy I think we should take comes from an unlikely source, Bruce Lee’s Philosophy on Martial arts. To me Bruce was one a person who understood America better than most American did or do. His Philosophy in the martial arts was to take what he took the most useful parts of other martial arts and add it to his own style Jeet Kune Do, the way of the intercepting fist. This meant that the art was ever evolving. This same philosophy can and should be when it comes to the economy and government.
We should see what policies are working in other countries and start testing and adopting them over in the United States. This way we can start building a better country. The U.S. is set up like a large social lab. Testing different policies and adjust them to accommodate the citizens of the country.
For we are each part of a bigger organism called society. We are all trying to find a place where we belong. We are all atoms trying to stabilize. With global warming happening we are being warmed up and ever volatile. Running around bouncing into each other. Sometimes we stay attached for a while, other times we split or touch for a second and never see each other again. During these periods we must learn from one another. To make each other better people. Look at what we are doing with marijuana legislation. Each state is learning from the other to which ones work best.
With all the changing in the economy we must do this. Otherwise society will fall. To much of it in one area or another will destroy the economy. It is like a water balloon, you fill it up in a single area it will burst. There has to be a balance to it. the rules for the economy should be set out nice and clear so most people will understand them. There should be a cap on how much a single person or family can make. We are always talking about a maximum amount earned. This way we no one or few persons have too much power. That is how we get to the economic problems that we currently have in our societies. Those at the top have to remember money is a resource not speech. Do the tax what come out of your mouth. No that is absurd. Speech is pretty much unlimited. Money is not. The more we print the higher the prices go and stay. Not giving society a chance to keep up if the top 1 percent has too much.
Some of the rich say that it is class warfare and we the citizens are the aggressors. When it is the obscenely rich have been doing class warfare on the poor for most of civilization’s existence. This time they have an entire world to plunder and not just a country anymore. For this reason from time to time we will need a redistribution of wealth from time to time, in order that no few people have too much power. everything in nature has limits why should currency be any different.
Peace be with you all.
