The Hobo Ethical Code of 1889: 15 Rules for Living a Self-Reliant, Honest & Compassionate Life

Wouldn’t it be grand if they looked instead to the Hobo Ethical Code, a serious standard of behavior established at the Hobo National Convention of 1889. When in town, always respect the local law and officials, and try to be a gentleman at all times. Don’t take advantage of someone who is in a vulnerable situation, locals or other hobos. Always try to find work, even if temporary, and always seek out jobs nobody wants. By doing so you not only help a business along, but ensure employment should you return to that town again. 

When no employment is available, make your own work by using your added talents at crafts. Do not allow yourself to become a stupid drunk and set a bad example for locals’ treatment of other hobos. When jungling in town, respect handouts, do not wear them out, another hobo will be coming along who will need them as badly, if not worse than you. Do not cause problems in a train yard, another hobo will be coming along who will need passage through that yard. Do not allow other hobos to molest children; expose all molesters to authoritiesthey are the worst garbage to infest any society. 

Help all runaway children, and try to induce them to return home. Help your fellow hobos whenever and wherever needed, you may need their help someday.

Compassionate appointment is not a matter of right: SC

A Bench of Justices Aftab Alam and R M Lodha quashed a direction of the Madras High Court which directed appointment of M Selvanayagam in Karaikal Municipality,five years after the death of his father Meenakshisundaram,a watchman. Simply because the claimant happened to be one of the dependents of the deceased employee would be directly in conflict with Articles 14 & 16(equality) of the Constitution and hence,is quite bad and illegal. Meenakshisundaram died on November 22,1988,after putting in 4 years 3 months and 25 days of service. It was only in 1993 that Selvanayagam made an application for his appointment on compassionate grounds. The apex court rejected the plea of the wife that she could apply for government job and instead chose to do some menial jobs on account of her poor health condition. 

The apex court recalled that under the scheme of compassionate appointment,in case of an employee dying in harness,one of his eligible dependents is given a job with the sole objective of providing immediate succour to the family which may suddenly find itself in dire straits as a result of the death of the bread winner. Start your day the best way with the Express Morning Briefing. For all the latest India News, download Indian Express App.

4 Common Capitalism Myths Debunked

The simple fact is, despite its importance to our daily lives, relatively few people have a strong grasp of what causes economic growth and why markets are so central to continuously rising standards of living. In my teaching, I have encountered several myths or misperceptions about capitalism from students as well as individuals outside the classroom. Similar to language, the market economy was not created by a single individual or group but evolved over a long period based on the interactions of many people. Unlike socialism, which attempts to impose rules and institutions regardless of their conformity to human nature or desires, markets arise out of our human qualities. The rules and institutions that facilitate the ability of markets to perform are discovered as we discover ourselves and in the way we interact with one another. 

The idea that absent market capitalism would create greater shared wealth within society continues to permeate the thinking of a great deal of people. Importantly, the evidence is clear that this decline in poverty has happened as countries have come to embrace market capitalism as the way forward – especially China and India. The term stuck and has led to some confusion about why markets actually work. As Adam Smith recognized, when individuals are permitted to pursue their self-interest through markets, they are amazingly good at finding ways of bettering not only themselves but society as well. The fact is, while the accumulation of capital is a feature of a market economy, it’s certainly not exclusive to it. 

Second, over the long run, society in its entirety benefits as a result of markets. Markets also produce products and services that improve our lives in ways that our ancestors could never have dreamed.

Catechism of the Catholic Church

2333 Everyone, man and woman, should acknowledge and accept his sexual identity. II. THE VOCATION TO CHASTITY. 2337 Chastity means the successful integration of sexuality within the person and thus the inner unity of man in his bodily and spiritual being. Sexuality, in which man’s belonging to the bodily and biological world is expressed, becomes personal and truly human when it is integrated into the relationship of one person to another, in the complete and lifelong mutual gift of a man and a woman. The alternative is clear: either man governs his passions and finds peace, or he lets himself be dominated by them and becomes unhappy. 2353 Fornication is carnal union between an unmarried man and an unmarried woman. 

III. THE LOVE OF HUSBAND AND WIFE. 2360 Sexuality is ordered to the conjugal love of man and woman. The conjugal love of man and woman thus stands under the twofold obligation of fidelity and fecundity. The Sacrament of Matrimony enables man and woman to enter into Christ’s fidelity for his Church. 2387 The predicament of a man who, desiring to convert to the Gospel, is obliged to repudiate one or more wives with whom he has shared years of conjugal life, is understandable. 2390 In a so-called free union, a man and a woman refuse to give juridical and public form to a liaison involving sexual intimacy. 2393 By creating the human being man and woman, God gives personal dignity equally to the one and the other. Each of them, man and woman, should acknowledge and accept his sexual identity.

Compassion โ€“ RJ’s Corner

This is the final post on looking for the U.S. number one export. Maybe I am just an idealistic dreamer but I am hoping that this one is our actual number one export. I don’t know exactly where we stand as far as our supporting emergency relief efforts around the world but I hope we are close to the top. At least by some of us,during others times of emergency is indeed noble. 

Then there is the shipments of grain to starving countries. To watch those massive ships being loaded with thousands of bags of food makes me proud. In 2007 over 26,000, mostly local, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals, logistical experts, water and sanitation engineers and administrators provided medical aid in over 60 countries. Private donors provide about 80% of the organization’s funding, while governmental and corporate donations provide the rest, giving MSF an annual budget of approximately US$400 million. Yes, I realize that the above could be accomplished by less than one percent of the country’s population but sometimes just a small percentage can affect how a much larger population is viewed. 

As an example of that just look at how Bin Ladin caused all Muslims to be viewed in a negative light by many. There are those around today who insist that in order to meet our budgets these types of government-funded things must be eliminated, or at least severely curtailed. Here I am the naive person that I am hoping, or maybe just dreaming, that much of the rest of the world view our number one export our compassion for others.

Dry Not White Powder โ€“ Close-Up Culture

Often with great success as evidenced by stage play Enron and film The Big Short. The latest director to cast their beady eye over the dark side of capitalism is Sarah Burgess whose play Dry Powder has just opened at the Hampstead Theatre in North London. Financial terms litter the script although buyers of the play’s programme can get to grips with them beforehand if they turn to the useful ‘glossary of terms’. The play is built around a deal that KMM Capital Management, a Manhattan based private equity manager, is trying to complete. KMM director Seth has been working on the purchase assiduously, in the process assuring Landmark boss Jeff Schrader that all will be good once the deal has been done. Everyone seems happy bar Seth’s fellow director Jenny. Jenny, a ruthless driven piece of work, believes the best return on Landmark can be made by offshoring all production to Bangladesh, sacking all bar a handful of the Sacramento staff and selling its luggage into China. The only love affair Jenny has had is with algebra as a child – and her job. The only clue I will give is that this is not a play where the moral case for private equity is advanced. The play’s opening and closing are a little underwhelming – Jenny first discussing with Rick a speech she will be making to finance students at New York University – and then at the play’s death her delivering it. Maybe Atwell’s Jenny sets the ‘bastard’ bar too high. Occasionally, the play disappears up itself in financial jargon but the set is clever and it all has an energy that keeps you watching straight through for one hour and 45 minutes.

compassion โ€“ Septisphere

The problem with political beliefs is there’s not much you can do with them. If your government offends your sensibilities there’s little you can do except complain about it and perhaps try to convince others of your point of view. You can of course try to bring about political change but this is a very large undertaking, and it brings a whole set of problems and compromises. The great thing about personal ethics is they apply to everything you control, and nothing you don’t. My ethics apply to my own sovereign self; to my actions, my habits, my goals, my relationships and my interactions with others. It’s strange that my culture places a very high value on democracy, yet has not incorporated it into day-to-day morality. At a guess, this is because democracy only appeared for us roughly 200 years ago, but our traditions of personal morality are much older, and haven’t kept up with the changes. The person who is just doesn’t care about anyone’s feelings; she seeks the outcome that is fair to all involved. The democratic person cares less about the outcome than about the process; she tries to ensure that the outcome is determined by those who are most affected by it, and not simply by those who have the most power. A democratic person would never impose a solution on others, even if that solution was kind and just. She would influence others, not by force or intimidation or manipulation, but through persuasion, negotiation and compromise. Of course it wouldn’t make sense to be 100% democratic all the time, any more than it would make sense to always be 100% compassionate or 100% fair.

Contemplative Wicca

Due to social and infrastructure collapse brought about by war. Thanks to American economic and foreign policies, these people have had much taken away from them, even hope. I believe ISIS has more to do with economic injustice than religion; if those people did not have to suffer such deprivation, they would likely not need to turn to violence. I find it just that they are fighting back against the U.S., because we have authored much of their misery through our economic policies. Conservatives seem to prefer individual charity over just social policy. I suppose giving charity makes them feel good when they deign to provide it, but the problem is that individual charity is spotty at best, and so does not reach as far as needed. There are simply not enough people to give money or time or goods where they are needed, so individual charity does not have much effect. It certainly does not change the cause of the suffering. Perhaps this is another reason conservatives are against social justice – it reduces their opportunities for doing feel-good charity. I prefer to change society, so that suffering of the magnitude mentioned above does not occur. Although Band-Aid work such as that provided by Mother Teresa is necessary in the short term, larger change in attitudes and policy is needed. By all means, contribute to your favorite charity, but also vote properly and work to change society so that all can share in our prosperity.

Compassionate Exchange

START YOUR INTEGRAL LIFE “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” Compassionate Exchange is a way to move freely through all perspectives available to you, instead of staying chronically identified with only one. In Compassionate Exchange, we dissolve the armor that builds up around this limited, survival-based orientation. We reverse the self’s usual orientation and breathe in suffering, and then breathe out the pleasurable release of suffering. Compassionate Exchange can be practiced for any length of time. Picture someone dear to you and breathe this person’s distress and suffering into your heart. As you exhale, breathe out the essence of freedom from suffering, and direct it towards this person. Each time you breathe in, take in the suffering and distress of more and more people. Each time you breathe out, breathe out the essence of release and freedom from suffering and direct it towards this larger group of people. Breathe out the essence of release and freedom from suffering, and direct it out towards all beings. Take in your own suffering and distress, and breathe out the essence of freedom of suffering, directing it towards yourself. As the final step in the practice of Compassionate Exchange, notice that you and all the people you have pictured and all the suffering and freedom from suffering are arising in the awareness that is witnessing all of this, and this is who you truly are.

Compassion, the Antidote

Martin Doblmeier: During the Vietnam War your own people found themselves deeply divided. Thich Nhat Hanh: There was a lot of suffering and people found themselves in a situation where they had become enemies of each other. Nhat Hanh: Forgiveness will not be possible until compassion is born in our heart. In order to be compassionate, you have to understand why the other person has done that to you and your people. Doblmeier: In a practical way how can we enliven that understanding and compassion within our own communities and families? You say, “I listen to him only with one purpose, to give him a chance to empty his heart. I am doing charity work.” But compassion will protect you from anger, and that is why compassion is the antidote for anger. If you master the art of listening deeply and of compassion, you can open the heart of the other person. Nhat Hanh: An act of compassion always brings about transformation. You react with compassion, and sooner or later you see the transformation in the other person. You go home with the intention to help, with the intention to help not only innocent people, victims of violence, of injustice, but you have the intention to help those who have done injustice to other people. So not only did we help the people who wanted us to help, but we helped the people who didn’t want us to help. Nhat Hanh: During my absence about 35 million people were born in Vietnam, and most of the people of my generation have died.

Patterico’s Pontifications ยป There Is No Freedom Without Capitalism

This morning I said: without capitalism, there is no freedom. A couple of commenters took issue with that statement. Understanding the relationship of capitalism to freedom is fundamental to understanding why Obama’s handling of the economic crisis is such a disaster. Now that we’ve moved beyond the President firing corporate CEOs to Barney Frank seeking to set corporate salaries, we have to be crystal clear on this point. Too often a false contrast is made between the impersonal marketplace and the compassionate policies of various government programs. Both systems face the same scarcity of resources and both systems make choices within the constraints of that scarcity. The difference is that one system involves each individual making choices for himself or herself, while the other system involves a smaller number of people making choices for others. It may be fashionable for journalists to refer to “The whim of the marketplace,” as if that were something different from the desires of people, just as it was once fashionable to refer to “Production for use, rather than for profit” – as if profits could be made by producing things that people cannot use or do not want to use. The real contrast is between choices made by individuals for themselves and choices made for them by others who presume to define what these individuals “Really” need. Capitalism is each individual making choices for himself. Socialism is those who claim to know best, making your choices for you.
