Living Life As A Compassionate Capitalist | Americas Greatest Motivators Keynote

Investment >Innovation>Jobs = Compassionate Capitalism

I renamed my podcast radio show the Compassionate Capitalist Radio Show after the Great Recession in an attempt to plant the seed that all the money needed to grow our economy and create jobs was sitting on the sidelines. So when you take the passion of an entrepreneur and mash it up with the capitalist desires of an investor – you get Compassionate Capitalism. Unlike pure capitalism, compassionate capitalism isn’t just about making money, it is about making money with the purpose of bringing innovation to the market and creating jobs, leading to the wealth triggered when that business continues to a successful exit. Here’s the thing—In America, Compassionate Capitalism has been going on for a long time. Since Angel Investing was first coined as a description of those that invest in private endeavors, with the goal for the company to grow big, go public, and reap the returns on that investment, it has been the game the rich play to get richer. 

Even when there was the dot.com collapse of the market….the angel investors had already made their big return on their money before the stocks collapsed on the stock market. Even with bombs like SnapChat IPO – the Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists make big multiples on their money, as the stock collapsed and those investors that got in on it when it first went public, lost a bunch. Without getting into all the rules covering this new era, lets just say — Anyone can get richer by investing in the entrepreneurial dream…. You don’t have to be an entrepreneur if you can invest in one. Angel Investors that people hear about making a lot of money from investing in Google, Facebook, Uber, or whatever is hot today, didn’t do it alone, and rarely just got lucky on making that great investment as their only investment. 

The problem is that 90% of the people that could qualify to be an angel investor are either too busy with running their own company or in their executive position to commit the time the traditional angel groups require or they are geographically located not near an established angel group. A way to get the primer for angel investing and jump-start getting started identifying and vetting deals to find the ones that are right for your capacity to invest and your risk tolerance. It is my, the author’s, investment in YOU the future Compassionate Capitalist.

Beyond Kinder, Gentler Capitalism

The vast majority of the population is responsible for the creation of that wealth through work. The problem is one of distribution: resources are concentrated in the hands of a few economic elites, instead of being shared among the workers whose labor created it. CEOs at major US firms make over three hundred times what the typical worker does. Meanwhile American workers’ pay stagnates, the cost of living skyrockets, and the dwindling social safety net functions less as the guaranteed foundation of a good life than as a public subsidy for capitalists who refuse to pay their workers a living wage. You’ve got one guy, Jeff Bezos of Amazon, his wealth is increasing every single day by $250 million, but he pays many of his workers wages that are so low than many of them are on food stamps or on Medicaid. 

It’s what capitalism trends toward, even when we try our best to contain it. To survive, workers are compelled to compete with other workers to sell their labor on the open market, prompting a race to the bottom. In order for their enterprises to stay afloat and to keep from becoming workers themselves, bosses are forced to compete with other bosses to maximize profit, which requires them to squeeze as much labor from workers for as little cost as possible, while also pressuring the state to deregulate industry, cut taxes, and so on. The wealth bosses were accruing during that period still made them much more powerful than workers. Saving capitalism is a heavy lift, and an end to inequality and class conflict under capitalism is structurally impossible. 

If we’re going to invest in an ambitious political project, we’re better off setting our sights on a horizon beyond capitalism and on a new economic order, one that’s oriented around public well-being instead of private profits. At its core, it involves recognizing that the resources for a beautiful and fair world already exist – thanks to the labor of workers – and that those resources should be spent enriching the lives of the many instead of the elite few.

Infosys salary row: Narayana Murthy’s single-minded focus on compassionate capitalism is commendable

It’s easy to look at Narayana Murthy’s open letter on executive compensation as the first salvo of the second round between the Infosys veteran and current management led by Vishal Sikka. Murthy addressed the letter to select Alpha journalists who never miss an opportunity and made his instructions clear. It’s easier still to be deliberately mischievous and see Murthy’s sharp words singling out Chief Operating Officer Pravin Rao as an expression of discomfort of the changing internal dynamics at Infosys. Rao was Murthy’s protégé, and probably still is; a fact Murthy explicitly brings out. At the risk of paraphrasing Murthy’s core thoughts, the veteran’s letter is more about the specific nature and character of capitalism that India needs to nurture for future generations, rather than about boardroom wars. 

In the Indian corporate landscape, Murthy is a rare titan whose rootedness to values of equity and fairness is monkish. Yes Murthy still considers India a poor country, and quite rightly so considering that close to 60 percent of the country still lives on less than Rs 140 a day. Murthy’s parting shot in the letter is as telling about the current nature of capitalism in India, as it is about what the nature of capitalism in the country needs to be. In such a scenario, it might seem that Murthy is being too idealistic and possibly quite out of sync with the rest of the world. Murthy’s advocacy of compassionate capitalism has strong roots in the Nordic and Scandinavian models of corporate capitalism that not only engages intensively with a social welfare state, but also puts self-restraining caps on executive salaries. 

Murthy is pointing to a model of capitalism that’s fundamentally different from the one that’s increasingly practiced in India. Instead of looking at Murthy’s letter only from the prism of Infosys and its changing dynamics, it would do all of us a world of good if we start looking at it as the first step to debating the contours of a new model of equitable capitalism for an emerging India.

I Am….Consciousness

I AM the believer limited by my beliefs, the knower defined by the known. The world is my conditioned consciousness objectified. That which I feel and believe to be true of myself is now projected in space as my world. The world, my mirrored self, ever bears witness of the state of consciousness in which I live. There is no chance or accident responsible for the things that happen to me or the environment in which I find myself. 

Nor is predestined fate the author of my fortunes or misfortunes. Innocence and guilt are mere words with no meaning to the law of consciousness, except as they reflect the state of consciousness itself. The consciousness of guilt calls forth condemnation. Man everlastingly objectifies the state of consciousness in which he abides but he has somehow or other become confused in the interpretation of the law of cause and effect. He has forgotten that it is the inner state which is the cause of the outer manifestation!

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.

Natural Capitalism: Creating the Next Industrial Revolution

Doomsday may be a century or two away, but the quality of life up to that point will have deteriorated at an increasing pace. Pursuing four central strategies of natural capitalism, these authors say, will enable commercial enterprises and communities to operate as if all forms of capital were important. The core strategy is that of radically increasing resource productivity by being more efficient, less wasteful in how natural resources are extracted and used. America doesn’t need the next industrial revolution. America needs a new and better capitalism that enfolds industry without its corpocracy.

The Mythology of Work

The pamphlete The Mythology of Work is a small selection from the book work published by the CrimethInc. collective. It dispels eight myths which hold on to work as something good for you and the society. CrimethInc., also known by other names, such as CWC or Crimethinc, is considered more of a mindset than an organization by the active participants in the ongoing CrimethInc. experiment. 

They are profoundly anti-capitalist, with critical looks at culture, politics, life, work, and radical ways of living one’s life. It was initially associated with the North American anarcho-punk scene, but since has expanded into nearly all areas of the current global resistance to empire.

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.

What is Communism?

Communism works the day people dare to open their minds, hearts and everything there is to open, and lay down all kinds of judgment. As the world is now, communism will never work, and the beginning of world wide communism would have to be fitted to every area, but in time they all would work for a common goal and the science will move a lot faster than it does today. Because I don’t believe communism is possible to achieve to its peak extent, I disagree with communism. Communism did work and that’s why the west were and still are so scared of it. Communism offers rich leaders and all poor people; it is a failed ideology. 

The closest thing a Communism would have to a government would be councils elected by the people, councils which would be kept under control by the people; they would have no real power or authority. Some people hate the rich and some cops hate rich people and they want communism. Communism would work in its purest form if people were mere machines. Communism can’t work because people have different talents and skills, thus people can’t all be equal, or classless. Communism strips the power of the people; there is no freedom as all the media is censored, which in turn limits freedom of expression. 

According the definition of communism by the man who coined the phrase, communism *is* stateless and classless. Most of people outside really scared of communism will go into the people mind and try to get rid of it.

Compassion in Politics: Christian Social Entrepreneurship, Education Innovation, & Base of the Pyramid/BOP Solutions

Terra Cycle is an amazing social business which is powered on eco-capitalism, innovation, and worm poop. They transform waste via compost, which worms transform into poop, and then transform that into an eco-friendly fertilizer solution. Their initial product use worm poop to create organic and natural fertilizers. It can outgrow Miracle Grow and its the only product in the world that is made entirely of waste. Recycling Waste, Saving the Environment, and Improving EducationTerra Cycle gets recycled cola bottles from elementary school students via fundraisers and pays the schools a six cents per bottle. 

The Future of Terra Cycle and Tom Szaky’s VisionThey’ve created an eco friendly fire log out of newspaper. This is all well and good, but for those who are willing to leverage the idea of waste now there are millions to be made. This is the premise of modern eco-capitalism: leveraging the idea of waste. Since waste is a commodity, if you use it as your raw material you will enjoy negative raw material costs. You get paid on both ends: you get paid for your raw materials and paid for your finished product. 

If you take this one step further and look at all of the other undesired elements in our modern society you will see just how much waste there is: from people to buildings. I’m curious if this process or product can be used for helping farmers at the base of the pyramid.

Capitalism Needs Compassion. Socialism, Once in Power, Outlaws It. « Gratia Veritas Lumen

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. 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. It is the necessary function of compassion that capitalism not only allows, but empowers, that sets capitalism apart from socialism.

Linda Campbell: Capitalism is not an ideology

The most successful capitalist he observed, was the ability to maintain the rate of accumulation. This resulted in the finding that the capitalist who accumulates the most capital has the ability to obtain the most resources for his business. Mr. Smith also observed other capitalist practices of controlling business costs and that the biggest business expense was labor. Labor, like all expenses, needed to be controlled so that the successful capitalist would maintain his rate of accumulation. 

Starting with the Industrial Revolution, capitalists began to accumulate much more capital than the merchants of Adam Smith’s study. The Capitalist, using the logic of justification, bought politicians to expand their political power. Capitalism as an ideology has been established in our country. Capitalists have struggled though, as this country was designed to be non-ideological. Currently it looks like Old School Capitalists, using the dogma of Capitalism, are fighting for their ideological lives. 

The old-school Capitalists, which includes Big Oil, Big Farm and Big Medicine, are fighting to keep their power. The Old School Capitalists are organizing their largest group of followers: rural, working class, under-educated white people. These supporters do not realize that all the Capitalists want from them is their priceless vote.

Ethical Theories in Business

You might wonder how ethics works its way into business, and whether it’s practical to consider the ethics of our actions when we conduct business at all. As it turns out, business leaders will make decisions that are ethically significant on a daily basis. As a result, business leaders can sometimes be faced with conflicting loyalties. You might think, on the one hand, that the loyalties of a business leader must be to the business’s consumers. On the other hand, it can also be argued that the loyalty of the business leader should lie with the shareholders. 

There are many other stakeholders who can lay claim to the loyalty of the business leader: the environment, the employees, the government, and even the wider community. No single business owner can know what kind of ethical actions will bring the most utility to the society. In this case, self-interest can lead to altruism when the business, as well as the greater community benefits from the actions of the business. Take sustainability programs, for example, they contribute to the preservation of the environment, while also leading to reduced expenses for the business. The business owner who employs an ex-convict to give them a second chance in life and the restaurant that occasionally feeds a street family can be said to have compassion. 

These are just some of the many questions that exist for ethical theories in business to answer. The point is that, at the end of the day, business leaders are faced with serious ethical questions in the decisions they make.

On The Rise and Fall of US Corporatocracy

Unwelcome Guests regular, war reporter turned social critic, Chris Hedges, sees Trump as a symptom of a deep and more grave development – the corporate takeover of the USA. He highlights capitalist subversion of the key US democratic institutions since the 1970s, undermining their ideals while preserving their form to cloak the totalitarianism. His overview of life in the US in 2017 is as extensive as it is disturbing. Hedges parallels the fall of the US democratic ideal with the collapse of the empire of Ancient Rome, and – drawing on his experience in Eastern Europe in 1989 – with the collapse of the Soviet empire. He details the injustice faced by inmates within the US corporate prison business, and emphasises the need for compassion with fellow human beings who are caged and tortured, ultimately, because doing so makes money for the corporations that run US society. 

He challenges the enemy images such as those we have detailed in the last few episodes of this show. We begin our second hour with a 2018 recording of Marxist economist Richard Wolff, whose alternative post-WW2 economic history gives center stage to the behaviour of US corporations since the mid 1970s. Wolff’s economic analysis is congruent with Hedges’ wider observations about corporate power in US – to which we return 20 minutes in to our second hour. Hedges emphasises the role of compassion as an antithesis to the amorality of capitalism, a positive value to which we can hold fast as the wreck of capitalism crashes around us.

Tarot Tuesday: Capitalism, Control + Compassion –

Four of Pentacles is the energy that blocks change, abhors it, and clings for dear life to the days of old. As our social landscape changes, with that change comes a radical power shift. The Four of Pentacles is he who insists upon dominance and the perception of control at all costs. Capitalism, after all, operates only if everyone adopts the shared assumption that acquiring and accumulating is inherently better than being satisfied with one’s equal share. In a system built on a scarcity mentality, those within it are taught to cling to coins alone, as if coins had the power to save us. 

It is the state in which material wealth becomes so entwined with one’s sense of self that he feels his very survival depends and is contingent upon the material things he owns. The King of Cups in a reading is a beacon of compassion. The King of Cups is capable of seeing things from many angles, and has the ability to flow from one to another with strength and sustained psycho-flexibility. The force of his compassion for the vulnerable transforms his anger toward the oppressor, allowing him to process and respond effectively to injustice. It is from this place of compassion for the vulnerable that we move effectively and make wise, smart choices. 

In an activated, threatened state, our minds become narrow and we cannot see the infinite choices available. In the days to come, let us establish the practice of bringing our selves back to this state moment by moment, again and again.

Capitalism vs. Socialism: Reply to Bruenig – Econlib

They’d witness amazingly well-fed, healthy people enjoying a cornucopia of technology and art beyond their wildest dreams. In a world with eight billion people, you can find unbridled lust and ravenous want if you search hard enough. Even the crummiest job in the U.S. lets workers serve their own end of making money, and spending or saving it as they like. The vast majority of workers also get some satisfaction from being productive and socializing with their coworkers. 

Capitalists want disciplined, focused workers – and well-reward those who possess these traits. Impulsive people in capitalist societies have trouble even holding down a job, as sociologists of poverty are well-aware. Even if you focus on consumers, plenty of firms – such as insurance companies and lenders – want people to be strong-willed, because their products offer long-run gain for short-run pain. People have consented or agreed to things they obviously haven’t. Even in the poorest countries, it’s normally multinational corporations that provide the best wages and working conditions. 

Workers’ alienation from their labor, society, and themselves; 3) to. Socialist-style approaches will result in greater utility or efficiency,but the greatest recommendation of socialism is that it is its own. Yes, people who run businesses want to make money; but most are also glad to create economic and personal opportunities for their workers, and valuable products for their consumers.

Want to discover your sense of purpose at work? |

Purpose boosts our capacity to make the greatest impact in the work we do and to connect with other people across cultures and contexts. We feel energized, motivated and expanded when we have a sense of purpose. Having a purpose can help us overcome obstacles, a benefit that makes a difference at work. The study’s goal was to identify the correlation between a student’s sense of purpose and the degree of difficulty with which he or she regarded the climb, to understand why some students make it up the Slope while others don’t. Participants who reflected on their larger purpose before climbing the hill estimated the slope and the effort to climb it as lower than if they were asked about a short-term goal. 

What was interesting was that for people with either higher dispositional purpose – who perceived themselves as high in purpose in general – or who were asked to reflect on purpose briefly, the link between effort and slope overestimation was diminished. So if we want to understand what we are trying to do, we have to find ways to keep our greater purpose and vision in mind. By shifting our perspective, we can achieve a greater sense of purpose without changing what we’re doing. No matter how lost or stuck you feel you can get back on purpose. Pay attention to how a shift in your perspective impacts your sense of joy and purpose. 

One way to figure it out is to pick a manageable period of time, such as one week, and notice when you feel most on purpose and what you’re doing at the time. Purpose is ongoing and iterative – it’s a process of seeing what works, and what doesn’t, for you and your life.

AYN RAND’S PHILOSOPHY OF OBJECTIVISM

Rand’s moral theory of self-interest is derived from man’s nature as a rational being and end in himself, recognizes man’s right to think and act according to his freely-chosen principles, and reflects a man’s potential to be the best person he can be in the context of his facticity. The role of the government is, thus, to protect man’s natural rights through the use of force, but only in retaliation and only against those who initiate its use. Thinking, man’s basic virtue, is exercised by choice man is a being of volitional consciousness. According to Rand, man has no innate knowledge and must determine through thought the goals, actions, and values upon which his life depends. If life as a man is one’s purpose, he has the right to live as a rational being. 

A right is a moral principle defining and sanctioning a man’s freedom of action in a social context. According to Rand, rights are innate and can be logically derived from man’s nature and needs. If one’s life is the standard, man has the right to live and pursue values as his survival requires. A man who has no right to the product of his efforts is not free to pursue his happiness and has no means to sustain his life. A violation of a man’s property rights is an expression of force against the man himself. 

The purpose of government is to protect man’s rights and enforce contractual agreements a breach of contract is an indirect use of force. For her, the idea of God is offensive and humiliating to man since it would mean that man is not the highest being in the world.

Interview with “Compassionate Capitalist” Dr. Charlotte di Vita MBE

People Are Less Selfish Under Capitalism Especially Compared to Socialism

My student described how exasperated she felt hearing the claim that capitalism leads to a survival of the fittest mentality. Among broad segments of society, the belief that capitalism teaches us to be so self-interested that we become uncaring about the welfare of others seems to be accepted as truth. Relative to any reasonable frame of reference, modern human societies are generous, peaceful, compassionate, and continually improving. We can only be considered selfish and violent in comparison to a utopian society in which no violence or cruelty takes place-a somewhat unfair comparison considering that there is no evidence of such a society as ever existed. Utopias may be imagined to be more altruistic than capitalist societies, but capitalist societies are more generous than real-world collectivist societies. 

Contrary to collectivism, capitalism widens our circle of compassion to include strangers. The evolution of capitalism has been in the direction of more trust and transparency, and less self-serving behavior; not coincidentally, this evolution has brought with it greater productivity and economic growth. Trust had been the product only of a personal relationship-I trust this guy because I know him-rather than a more general assumption upon which you could do business. The real triumph of capitalism in the 19th and 20th centuries was that trust was woven into the basic fabric of everyday business. The rise in altruism that Marsh observes has occurred concurrently with the rise of capitalism. 

To do business, we learn to trust strangers and to be trustworthy to strangers. The more capitalism, the more compassion and altruism towards strangers.

‘Compassionate capitalist’ John Morgan has ‘no clue’ on indie run for governor

Morgan announced Friday he wouldn’t run as Democrat and would switch his voter registration to independent. He mentioned two Republican friends he says he often agrees with: Florida Senate President-designate Bill Galvano and House Speaker Richard Corcoran, though he specifically noted he differs with Corcoran’s support for charter schools. Morgan faulted Republicans for pushing a tax reform plan in Congress that Morgan says will benefit the rich and blow up the national debt.

About: Nathaniel Branden

Amidst a lifetime of achievement, Nathaniel Branden’s pioneering work in the field of self-esteem stands as perhaps the most universally important. Over seven decades, Branden focused on the critical need to understand the psychology of self-esteem and its relationship to our daily lives. Through this work he contributed to the evolution of the concept from obscurity to greater levels of clarity and acceptance. During his career, Nathaniel Branden wrote nearly 20 books on self-esteem, including such influential works as The Psychology of Self-Esteem, How to Raise Your Self-Esteem, The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem and The Art of Living Consciously. In addition to his extensive work as a writer, Nathaniel Branden worked as a lecturer, therapist and corporate consultant specializing in assisting modern businesses employ the principles of self-esteem to achieve greater levels of success. 

He also the founded The Branden Institute for Self-Esteem, a counseling center in Los Angeles, California. Nathaniel Branden was a thinker, a compassionate teacher of rational values and ultimately a champion for happiness.

The Best Argument against Libertarianism

In honor of the New Year, let’s begin with a bit of epistemic hygiene. It’s hard to know what will or won’t work. When challenged, libertarians sometimes fall back on hard-nosed a prioristic models of market functioning, but those defenses are seldom very satisfying. Other times, libertarians stress that the case for most principled political positions that don’t simply ratify the status quo require similar epistemic bets. The latter point seems to me somewhere near the truth, probably. 

Non-Moralized Notions of Coercion: many libertarians think they can defend their views by embracing a rather modest presumption against the use of coercion. In doing so, they often appeal to a moralized notion, where people are coerced, say, only when their rights are being violated. If that’s the notion of coercion involved, the presumption against coercion is no longer modest, but loaded. If you appeal to a non-moralized notion of coercion, then it becomes clear you need more argument to show that libertarianism is the least coercive political system. I think you can make the argument, but it’s a hard one, made harder by.

english120 / contrast and comparison paragraph

Remo heads provide the resonance for both Mike and Lars. Both drummers play the majority of their songs with a driving bass line, coming from the bass drums. When given the chance to solo, both drummers can produce some amazing sounding beats. Both drummers possess amazing speed and control behind the kit. While there are some similarities and differences between the two, both can be considered masters of their craft. 

Another likeness is that they both have served time in Iraq. Glenn and Eric are both married to their high school sweethearts, and have had large families. Although cell phones and regular phones have the same purpose and they both work the same, they have many differences as well. With your cell phone, someone can leave you a message an dyou can get it right on the phone where as on a home phone, you have to have an answering machine. A cell phone can be programed for special rings but a hard wired phone has only one ring tone. 

Cell phones are much smaller in apperance than a hard wired phone. Cell phones may have different apperences and gadgets but they both serve the same purpose.

Why the Dalai Lama is a Socialist: Buddhism, Socialism and the Compassionate Society, Gibbs

Though Buddhists and socialists both might be perplexed at the suggestion that their approaches to life share fundamental principles, important figures in Buddhism have increasingly been framing contemporary social and economic problems in distinctly socialist terms. In this innovative and provocative work, Terry Gibbs argues that the shared values expressed in each tradition could provide useful signposts for creating a truly humane, compassionate, and free society. Why the Dalai Lama Is a Socialist is the first book to accessibly link Buddhism to socialist thought and social justice. As interest in Buddhism, particularly in the West, continues to increase dramatically and as the Dalai Lama remains one of the most high-profile religious figures in the world, this book provides a timely comparison of the complementary ideals of the Buddhist and socialist traditions. Gibbs is hopeful about our potential to create a more just society through collective effort, and Why the Dalai Lama Is a Socialist is grounded in his fundamental belief that everyday human activity makes a difference.

Nurse Quotes, Sayings about Nurses & Nursing, Quotations for Nurses Day

Authentic service can be seen in the nurse who has nurtured herself, the healer who has been healed. Constant attention by a good nurse may be just as important as a major operation by a surgeon. The trained nurse has become one of the great blessings of humanity, taking a place beside the physician and the priest…. ~William Osler. Nurses dispense comfort, compassion, and caring without even a prescription. Bound by paperwork, short on hands, sleep, and energy… 

nurses are rarely short on caring. After two days in the hospital, I took a turn for the nurse. When you’re a nurse you know that every day you will touch a life or a life will touch yours. You know you’re a nurse if… you triage the laundry when at home: This pile needs immediate attention, the pile can wait, this pile, with a little stain stick will be OK until you get back to it. 

Whether a person is a male or female, a nurse is a nurse. If Christian scientists had more science and doctors more Christianity, it wouldn’t make any difference which you called in – if you had a good nurse. A nurse will always give us hope,an angel with a stethoscope. Nurses don’t wait until October to celebrate Make a Difference Day – they make a difference every day! ~Author unknown.

A Snapshot of Key Ethical Theories

Ethical theory serves as the foundation for ethical solutions to the difficult situations people encounter in life. For centuries, philosophers have come up with theoretical ways of telling right from wrong and for giving guidelines about how to live and act ethically. Living an ethical life, or acting rightly, requires developing and demonstrating the virtues of courage, compassion, wisdom, and temperance. Thus, acting rightly involves maximizing the amount of happiness and minimizing the amount of suffering around you. Kantianism emphasizes the principles behind actions rather than an action’s results. 

Acting rightly thus requires being motivated by proper universal principles that treat everyone with respect. When you’re motivated by the right principles, you overcome your animal instincts and act ethically. So for contract theorists, ethics isn’t necessarily about character, consequences, or principles. Care ethics focuses ethical attention on relationships before other factors. As a result, acting rightly involves building, strengthening, and maintaining strong relationships. 

Acting rightly thus displays care for others and for the relationships of which they are a part. To care ethicists, relationships are fundamental to ethical thinking.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau: We are Good by Nature but Corrupted by Society

Jean-Jacques Rousseau believed that man is naturally good and that vice and error are alien to him. According to Rousseau, nature is man’s state before being influenced by outside forces. The correct balance of these three categories in human nature, enables man to develop naturally. The Education of man, for example, what we are taught,. Rousseau claims that outside influences, for example, society and custom, are responsible for deviations from natural, healthy development in humans and this creates a dilemma. 

Rousseau attempts to present an individual as a whole as both true citizen and heroic mother, stretching credibility to its limits. She has repressed her natural behaviour – and this is a problem for Rousseau’s attempt to reconcile citizen and man. Rousseau believes the education of man commences at birth and that experience is the forerunner of the precept. There is a free choice to be made here, according to Rousseau; man may do good or evil. Natural religion, Rousseau, feels, has been tampered with and worship made too ceremonial. 

There are contradictions in Rousseau’s attempts to reconcile nature with society. His greatest work was The Social Contract about freeing man from his chains through the creation of an ideal society.

Wealth Redistribution

Legal oversight isn’t helping because the laws are totally ignorant and oblivious to the real problems with capitalism. Products that are either designed purposefully to become obsolete or useless in very short order, or products that have a limited life span and are extremely costly to repair. Precisely because manufactures are designing products that cannot be reused/repaired inexpensively. Human laborers are simply no longer required to make the products in numbers that used to be required. Most people make far less, and the reason is that there are many people who are making $100K+++ or more. 

So if you think these averages reflect what most people are making you’re not recognizing the reality of the situation. In order for that to average down to say $30k there needs to be a WHOLE LOT of people making FAR LESS than $30k. So if $30k is an average income, that’s actually pretty bad. Especially in the US economy. It’s not capitalism itself that is the problem. 

If it did, it would demand that companies make products that will last and be reusable and repairable at a reasonable cost. Companies do this because they want to sell NEW PRODUCTS. They don’t want you to be fixing up used stuff so you don’t need to buy new. So the poor people not only make less money, but they don’t have enough money to do anything with anyway. If we’re going to go back to the 1950’s we need to start manufacturing products that can be easily repaired and last a long time.

Selections from Camille Paglia at conservativeforum.org

Columnist for Salon Magazine and others, Professor of Humanities at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, author of Sexual Personae, Sex, Art and American Culture, and other works. Modern liberalism suffers unresolved contradictions. 1992’All things being equal… ‘ But things never are equal. Western culture has produced the best system yet for organizing and taming those king-seeking energies: representative democracy, part of our pagan heritage. 1992 – from Sex, Art, and American Culture, Random House Vintage BooksMale-bashing became the instant drug of choice for the revived women’s movement, a self-crippling addiction from which feminists are just waking up. Because I have studied the past, I know that, in America and under capitalism, I am the freest woman in history. Capitalism is an art form, an Apollonian fabrication to rival nature. 

It is hypocritical for feminists and intellectuals to enjoy the pleasures and conveniences of capitalism while sneering at it. Everyone born into capitalism has incurred a debt to it. I feel that capitalism has a very bad press with the pseudo-leftists who clog our best college campuses and that in point of fact capitalism has produced modern individualism and feminism. Modern capitalism has allowed the birth of the independent woman who is no longer economically dependent on her husband. I despise the sneering that our liberal humanists do about capitalism even while they enjoy all of its pleasures and conveniences.

Capitalism vs. Socialism: Reply to Bruenig – Econlib

They’d witness amazingly well-fed, healthy people enjoying a cornucopia of technology and art beyond their wildest dreams. In a world with eight billion people, you can find unbridled lust and ravenous want if you search hard enough. Even the crummiest job in the U.S. lets workers serve their own end of making money, and spending or saving it as they like. The vast majority of workers also get some satisfaction from being productive and socializing with their coworkers. 

Capitalists want disciplined, focused workers – and well-reward those who possess these traits. Impulsive people in capitalist societies have trouble even holding down a job, as sociologists of poverty are well-aware. Even if you focus on consumers, plenty of firms – such as insurance companies and lenders – want people to be strong-willed, because their products offer long-run gain for short-run pain. People have consented or agreed to things they obviously haven’t. Even in the poorest countries, it’s normally multinational corporations that provide the best wages and working conditions. 

Workers’ alienation from their labor, society, and themselves; 3) to. Socialist-style approaches will result in greater utility or efficiency,but the greatest recommendation of socialism is that it is its own. Yes, people who run businesses want to make money; but most are also glad to create economic and personal opportunities for their workers, and valuable products for their consumers.
