Society

Society It is worth mentioning again. That Society includes the whole natural world and environment. Logically there are three classes of Society.

Emergency Economies

Emergency Economies It is quite obvious that this country must develop economies for emergency situations. With the ‘standard’ economy frozen so that it can be reopened when the time is right. A war economy. A chaos pandemic economy. Two that come to mind. If some fleets of airliners and cargo plane...

Basic Income Covid, with other pandemics, is the bringer of chaos. The Black Death took anyone and everyone, young and old, and such a mutation of Covid would bring total chaos. There are three classes of society that must maintain some degree of stability in order to provide their own form of moral...

Pandemic Economy

The Economy

The Economy Ethics is based on values and there are no absolutes only compromises between the shared basic values. We can have an economy that is reductionist, and each part stands on its own, or unitary, or holistic. Commerce may serve the government and be created or removed according to its purpo...

Re: Individualism vs. Collectivism

Remarkable that ethics seems to ossified into a binary relationship. The Individual versus Collectivism.

Words with a life of their own Where something is valued ethically, a word or term will often be coined to embrace that perceived virtue or vice.
