What are the solutions for poverty?
Ideally three things:
1setting a BETTER power structure, 2destroying the currently powerful, and lastly, 3educating societies.
Some have stated that the top elites control a majority of wealth in the world. So if you wish to end poverty, you have to redistribute power but to who and what makes your way so special? Beyond an ideology but one with meticulous laws and legislation planned out BEFORE destroying the current social structure or you will just bring guideless anarchy ONLY for those powerful again to come back into power.
#1Setting a BETTER power structure. But before you begin wanting to destroy the currently powerful, you need to first find another form of social structure to embrace. Who will it hold, what will the government be like, the number of branches, what laws and bill of rights, etc. You have to think meticulously the daily events of people, groups and societies and plan for it. How will you pay for unalienable rights for your society? Tax? How much? Who? Businesses, trade tariffs and etc. Will you provide health care? What are things you feel that your society deserves but have the PRACTICAL financial means to provide these ideas? How will you protect your society? Army, navy air force? National Guard? Militia? Is serving to protect your society mandatory? This huge list continues. If you think YOU individually can come up with all the possible issues that can arise from your society, you are a FOOL. It has taken hundreds of years of humanity to come up with social taboos and norms for generations. How will you handle new threats we don’t have issues with yet? Like cyber laws? What is legal in terms of hacking businesses, government, individuals? How will maintain protecting your citizens? Surveillance? If so how far? On and on and on. From scientific issues, immigration issues, to energy issues, to criminal justice, it goes on and on. So once this is meticulously detailed, you have to introduce these ideas to your society. Will they like it? Will you care? How will you get them to voice their opinions which may help or distract progress? Will you conduct censuses? How will individuals in your society vote for things if they are even given a right? Who are given rights Etc and etc?
#2 Why destroy the current powerful? Destroying the current structure will place the once powerful people out of power so that they cannot perpetuate the old views. Some may see FULL extermination of the currently powerful, but that is your moral case. Ideally, you do have to psychologically assess each of these powerful if they are even fit to lead again or if they would just be concerned with vested interests at the cost of destroying others. You have to keep in mind how is it these powerful were able to become powerful in the first place. They do not think similarly to the average common person and this wiring is partly why they are where they are: through talent, morals, skills, and resources. It needs to be as detailed and exceed the current structures in place currently. Destroying the current powerful is a quick way to solve the power struggle financially but it can also destroy the very fabric of society. We need money and if you destroy the leaders of financial institutions, you will shake the very idea in money. Imagine it, if the richest people, the next day just died. Where would all this money go? Would we even know? Would we even trust the money because it’s only a few and does not really affect the many? Would we go on about our normal lives? What would people do to get it? Who should get it? Desperate people can do some cruel things especially if it is a worldwide practice that money=power. Some, unfortunately, use it morally than others and then again most moral uses of money don’t make a profit (currently). Having the idea of destroying the powerful is a radical idea but an even more dangerous thing to try to accomplish EVEN if you have a better plan in place because there is always the chance that 1: people don’t follow you or they do something else in spite of your great plan and 2: these powerful people will resist your attempts of destroying their power.
#3 Educating people Thirdly, educating people. Since the day we were born, we have a projected amount of time on the earth; we have a projected amount of time to make money because we need money to live in a society. Businesses have a hungry need for money and have products to sell people that they may need in exchange to keep their business running. So throughout your life, people will sell things to you, you may need it, you may not. If you can educate people to voluntarily see the same views of money as you, you may be able to curb this parasitic life of money and life. OR and this is a big OR, you just give off a pool of money for those that want to compete for the fight for a bigger share of the money. The real bottom line is that we NEED MONEY to live in most societies to buy necessities and treat ourselves and some will just make more than others because not ALL jobs pay the same, not ALL people buy the same things, not ALL people live the way as other people and lastly, not all people live as long as others.
If you can somehow take hundreds of years of learned lessons of human society and governments that worked, if you can somehow instill a better structure for society and if you can educate people in the psychology of greed and the abnormalities to those more greedy to somehow make greed a social taboo, then yes sir/mam, you have solved poverty. However, the reality is that some want money more than others. With people wanting something more than others, some will make successful attempts in getting what they want while some others will have to fail. I’m sorry for having to explicitly type such a glaring reality. The competition will prevail numerically, bigger businesses will dominate financially over smaller businesses as their product becomes popular and then fall when their services are not necessary BUT god will they try to resist this gravity, they will resist with every dollar in their pocket. Popularity wins, competition is true, the weak businesses fail, it’s a dog eat dog in terms of $ because relying on chance and charity will decrease your chances of survival; your chance of living.
If you have taken the time to read this, thanks. This was enjoyable trying to organize the ideas and try to type it out. And chances are, you will not agree with everything I have to say, but that is what makes things interesting eh? I am an individual, that will have similarities and differences in experience with another (from baby to grandparent), even in terms of money.
