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.

Practicing Compassionate Capitalism

This is old news, but I thought I would put it up on my Blog anyway. When the Dalai Lama spoke in Hailey, ID, in 2005, I took over a truck and trailer load of Buddhas from our warehouse in Boise and set up on the side of the highway to sell them. Below are links to the AP and Tibetan News articles. Dalai Lama attracts a diverse crowd to mountain resort – www. Here is a link to an Associated Press article at NWKansas.com saying telling the same story. Hotels were full in Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Twin Falls and some people came every day from Boise to see the Dalai Lama. Here’s another link to the Canada Tibet committee. Last but not least, this was the shortened version of the AP article most newspapers printed. I ran into an aquiantance in Indonesia 3 years after this event who read the AP article in his newspaper in Honolulu.

Post-Postmodernism: or, The Cultural Logic of Just-in-Time Capitalism

Post-Postmodernism surveys a wide variety of cultural texts in pursuing its analyses-everything from the classic rock of Black Sabbath to the post-Marxism of Antonio Negri, from considerations of the corporate university to the fare at the cineplex, from reading experimental literature to gambling in Las Vegas, from Badiou to the undergraduate classroom. Insofar as cultural realms of all kinds have increasingly been overcoded by the languages and practices of economics, Nealon aims to construct a genealogy of the American present, and to build a vocabulary for understanding the relations between economic production and cultural production today-when American-style capitalism, despite its recent battering, seems nowhere near the point of obsolescence. Post-postmodern capitalism is seldom late but always just in time. It requires an updated conceptual vocabulary for diagnosing and responding to our changed situation.

Compassionate Capitalism

Honoring our interconnectedness is the key to a new world that works for everyone. Bridging our deeper, inner awareness with our outer profit games is possible. That involves commitment to mutually beneficial partnership with the whole community. Aligning with the Dalai Lama and Pope Francis on consciousness for the new age, care for our common interest in our world, our sacred bond, health, welfare, environment, and dignity of every individual is the goal we must give our intention and attention to. Partnership on a planetary level and contribution to our common interests is the secret to our future. Join Dr. Ray Blanchard with special guest, best selling author, transformational leader, and corporate culture master, Blaine Bartlett. You will receive his new book, the #1 international bestseller Compassionate Capitalism: A Journey to the Soul of Business, for FREE for attending this important webinar.

Compassionate Systems

To bridge that disconnect I’m trying to champion systems thinking in schools as a new curriculum. One of the school systems that’s been interested in this is IB, the International Baccalaureate High Schools, which have very high academic standards. They want to bring this into their curriculum because they understand its importance for their students’ lives and the future. They’ve added a missing ingredient: compassion and empathy. You can have a systems understanding that is first rate, but if you don’t care about the impacts those insights allow you, then you’ve got to deal, for example, with the consequences of rampant greed. You’ve got companies using science and systems in their self-interest, without caring about the side effects: untested industrial chemicals, say, or emissions into air water and soil.

Voluntarism and Capitalism

I’ve always been a scatterbrained little boy, for a multitude of reasons. 2017/02/25: Jordan Peterson: Postmodernism: How and why it must be fought. It’s also Jordan Peterson, so that’s no surprise. Yugioh was a cartoon that came on at 4:30pm Monday-Friday and at 11am on Saturday when I was a kid. I never got home from school in time to watch Pokemon. I’m not sure if the cards came before the show in my personal history, []. Corrupt Justification. For us this is the end of the stories, and we can most truly say. What is produced is never anything but forms, shapes of material, combinations of material; therefore things, goods. The first time I recall being assigned to read this was in 11th grade.
