Socialism, Once in Power, Outlaws It

Socialism on the other hand has no checks and balances against greed. Socialism therefore cannot produce a people who are free to be compassionate. Although socialism is viewed as compassion, it doesn’t allow room for compassionate giving because by definition, under a socialist system, there shouldn’t be any need for anyone to have to give compassionately. Socialism has to keep people poor in order to justify its own existence. Socialism strips the individual of their right to own private property. 

To give freely is treasonous because, in theory, under socialism there is no need for people to be compassionate. Unlike compassionate capitalism, compassionate socialism cannot exist. It’s an oxymoron because socialism as absolute economic law only has what it’s taken from the people; it has no capital outside what socialism has taken without compassion; creating no real margin of abundance for individuals to give compassionately from. The Bible does not preach or foster socialism as an absolute economic law or morality. Socialism has no room and sees no need for compassion once it holds power. 

The socialist only sees the capitalist as his or her enemy, upholding socialism religiously, without opposition. Socialism is seen as true compassion and therefore the only compassion anyone truly needs.

Blue Print for How to Build A Culture of Empathy?

We’d like to come up with a blueprint for building a culture of empathy and compassion. The more empathy you receive, the more space you have to give it. Develop training that deepens the individual components of empathy. Change all social institutions to actively support empathy. Go to the pain, suffering, fear, alienation with awareness, presence and empathy. 

Have TV moderators using empathy to bring people together. I take heart that there are many people bringing forward empathy. Local level with skilled moderators, who want to get people heard. Want to talk with peoples who’s letters confused me. I don’t understand this lack of empathy around the world. 

This group used reflective listening to deepen empathy for each person. Edwin told story of visiting Tea Party and Republican State convention to talk with participants about the role of empathy in their lives.

Culture of the New Capitalism

The distinguished sociologist Richard Sennett surveys major differences between earlier forms of industrial capitalism and the more global, more febrile, ever more mutable version of capitalism that is taking its place. Only a certain kind of human being can prosper in unstable, fragmentary institutions: the culture of the new capitalism demands an ideal self oriented to the short term, focused on potential ability rather than accomplishment, willing to discount or abandon past experience. Richard Sennett teaches sociology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the London School of Economics. His recent publications include The Corrosion of Character and Respect in a World of Inequality.

The Compassionate Librano

On the prowl sort of whereas an Alligator is any woman out there ready to devour or destroy the reputation, livelihood and well being of any male she has her sights on – without due course, due diligence, due evidence, or due process. We’re due they, the radical feminists, were due to say. No more holding the door open, paying for dinner, compliments, drinks or whatever. I would belch, fart, grunt, swear, and scratch my ass – wiggle me nuts – tell dirty jokes, well perhaps not, and – y’know all of those things that define a male – in front of you. I would think twice about working with a woman because you just never know. 

No defence, no evidence, just hearsay and buddy you are screwed.

The C word

Bill Gates recently gave a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The idea is this: the increase in standards of living brought by capitalism mainly benefit the rich, so companies should put more effort into developing products and services for the poor. Both these bargains are bound up with capitalism, which is centred not on the free market or the accumulation of wealth, but instead on the idea of false choice. Yes, you may buy from or work for a number of companies, but they are all motivated by the same desires and thus, really, you only have one choice.

Compassionate Capitalism, the Workplace, and Social Capital

While compassionate capitalism may seem like a contradictory statement, examples of this practice suggest the power of this model. In this chapter, we review key components of capitalism and compassion. We explore governmental intervention through the Great Depression, the New Deal programs initiated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Milton S. Hershey’s groundbreaking business philosophy that was beneficial to the company and to his employees.

Liberalism Synonyms, Liberalism Antonyms

I was ashamed of him, and sick of Liberalism, as I sat there. A Liberalism worthy of the word should lift its head and see new paths. Even the dreadful Hamidian tyranny could not kill Turkish liberalism. They call us Rationalists; take care you don’t fall into Liberalism. The spirit of liberalism was abroad in the sons of the Puritans. I have always been inclined to liberalism, but I have wished for gradual changes only. On the other hand, there was a confident Liberalism which inspired a whole party. It is not sufficient, I think, to say that Liberalism is demanded.

Social Mindfulness

Here you can find lists of references about Buddhism and mindfulness in various categories. Obviously it would be impossible and unwieldy to try for complete lists on any of these areas, given the vast amount of literature. Edited collections which bring together a number of authors. For areas where there is less literature, particularly around the topic of social engagement, we’ll try to build up a more comprehensive list of references over time.

Commerce, Capitalism, and Compassion

I’ve just started reading some of him in the poetry class. Way Down South in Dixie They hung my dark young lover To a cross roads tree. Way Down South in Dixie I asked the white Lord Jesus What was the use of prayer. Way Down South in Dixie Love is a naked shadow On a gnarled and naked tree. I asked around though and based on my description of you, my poet-friend came up with Langston Hughes as well, and Allen Ginsberg.

Creative Capitalism = Compassionate Conservatism?

Where governments, businesses, and non-profits work together to stretch the reach of market forces so that more people can make a profit or gain recognition doing work that eases the world’s inequities…. This system, [capitalism], driven by self-interest is response for the incredible innovations that have improved so many lives.

Delivering powerful stories of children whose lives are being changed through the Church.

Whether they live in poverty or wealth, little boys love to play. Poverty means children often have unsafe equipment or make their own toys from trash. Compassion helps to provide safe play for children, like this boy from Thailand. If you’d like to help children to have safe play equipment and toys, see the Compassion Gift Catalog.

Capitalism – Truth Sought

Past a certain age, a human can no longer function or fight. Their cause dies and they attempt to carry on the torch by living vicariously through their children. The children grows, imprinted with the same vision and cause in their children.

Conscious Capitalism: New Models for 21st Century Business

I heard a CEO recently say that his company has had a compound annual growth rate for sales of 29% since 1978 and an employee turnover rate of about 5% compared to an industry average of 110%. Those are numbers that get your attention. When the same CEO talks about the trust that has been built in business relationships and characterizes the energy felt in the company as “Joyful,” it is pretty evident his company isn’t Toyota, Goldman Sachs, Massey Energy, BP or a number of other companies that have recently been working out of crises. While many companies tout the importance of their people, Chairman and CEO Kip Tindell explains that for the Container Store “Putting employees first is a profit strategy.” Employees are the #1 stakeholder. One of the principles is “Communication is leadership.” He uses words like “Consistent, reliable, predictable, effective, thoughtful, compassionate and courteous” to describe what communication looks like in the company. He was joined by Gary Hirshberg, founder and CE-Yo of Stonyfield Farms, which is the world’s largest organic yogurt producer, and Doug Rauch, who served as president of Trader Joe’s for the last 14 years of his 31 years with the company. Stories about how purpose drives the business, how customers connect with the emphasis put on saving the environment, and how customers and employees are treated begin to create a different definition of “Business as usual” for these companies. Hirshberg tells those in attendance that he started Stonyfield 27 years ago with a question: “Is it possible to create an enterprise where everybody wins?” Stonyfield’s compound annual growth rate of over 24% in the last 18 years has successfully blended the company’s social, environmental and financial missions, he says. CCI, established a year ago, needs a broader array of stories going forward from leaders in other industries to illustrate the principles of companies driven by more than profit making a difference in the world. Obviously, the idea behind a purpose-driven company didn’t start with Conscious Capitalism. Decades ago companies like the ones mentioned and others like Johnson & Johnson, Levi Straus, the Body Shop, and Ben & Jerry’s created strong brand loyalty around the quality of their products, loyalty to their customers, and the commitments they made to the world in which they lived. As James O’Toole of the Daniels College of Business, University of Denver pointed out at the conference, a virtuous company is hard to sustain over time and especially if leaders change. Companies like Johnson & Johnson, Xerox, and Herman Miller are still around and their commitments regarding how they want to operate are intact even if interrupted or watered down at various times. O’Toole, Daniels Distinguished Professor of Business Ethics, raised a critical question CCI and others will need to address: How can a “Virtuous company” be made to last beyond its founder’s involvement with the company? Conscious Capitalism is emerging at a time when how business operates is at a crossroad. It advances an approach by which a company can be profitable while also safeguarding trust, reputation, and credibility with stakeholders. It will need to determine what is a realistic bar for companies to measure themselves against as CCI seeks to change the way companies do business.

Privatizing creativity: the ruse of creative capitalism

Part of the imperialist project was insisting all other cultures acknowledge Europeans as the most creative “Race” and see their own creative accomplishments as childish imitations. Even if most workers don’t believe this creative bullshit there’s no denying that, in our current “Age of Austerity,” where social programs and the welfare state are being cut to the bone, we have all had to get a lot more “Creative” just to survive the new “Creative” economy! Despite all this, establishment pundits and professors have declared ours an age of “Creative capitalism.” Capitalism, they argue, is the best system for providing creative opportunities for everyone. Capitalism drastically alters what sorts of creativity we think are valuable and it focuses humanity’s creative energies towards earning ever greater profit for a few. What capitalism does, in effect, is fundamentally shift what we could call the “Economy of creativity”: it drastically alters what sorts of creativity we think are valuable and it focuses humanity’s creative energies towards earning ever greater profit for a few. Creating a perspectival drawing is something most art students learn quite early today and is not considered especially creative, but it would be considered highly creative 500 years ago. Under capitalism, all this work of reproduction, creative and not creative, is organized towards earning some people a lot of profit and keeping the rest of us in our place. Which brings us to the final point: you can be very creative under capitalism, and many people are. Millions of creative people are in a day-to-day struggle for survival while some of the sharpest and most creative minds of our time are finding themselves dreaming up new ways of playing with money on Wall Street. Ideas of the “Creative class” and the “New creative economy” celebrate creativity as an individualistic, capitalistic value. The struggle against the new “Creative capitalism” is not very different than struggles against capitalism in other eras and in other places: people work together to win greater control over their working conditions; people create new ways of living and new communities that operate outside the structure of capitalism; people reject the way capitalism divides people and puts them into hierarchies of race, class, gender, ability and identity; people try and take control of their governments to protect them from capitalist greed and sometimes succeed in transforming their economy and society completely. For one, the ruse of creativity and creative capitalism has seen capital outmaneuver many traditional institutions of workers’ power. Creative capitalism encourages workers, both those employed in creative industries and in mundane jobs to consider themselves as competitive individuals and to see their bosses as merely more successful or talented versions of themselves. Formerly, there used to be more help for artists and creative types from governments and even from the private sector in helping artists and creative people swallow this risk, supporting them while they took chances. What will be key for organizers and activists fighting within and against the hype of creative capitalism, whether they are fighting worker exploitation or neighbourhood gentrification, will be acknowledging that the promise of creativity, while hollow, truly does move many people.
