(how to NOT kill yourself) - by Adrian Kenton
'How to be a nobody' by...?'
'How to be a nobody by ... ?'
The majority of people are made to feel like they are dispensable nobodies. Neoliberalism has brought people closer than ever to potential extinction and ecological catastrophe. Yet, surprisingly, it has also brought them within a hair's breadth of establishing an inalienable right for every individual to earn for their daily toil. This can be achieved without using money or altering political, cultural or financial regimes, forming AN IMMEDIATELY IMPLEMENTABLE PARALLEL NON-MONETARY ECONOMY, that remains separate from monetary capitalism and its negative impositions, yet contributes to it without threatening it.
'How to be a nobody by…?' examines what these existing processes and agencies are. It contrasts the psychological externalities of monetary-dictated commercial and political policies upon individuals of all status, with how a non-monetary economy affords labour values to be re-defined, empowering all. It examines the global movement away from dependency on capitalistic practices that includes - post-capitalism predictions : anti-capitalist movements : adaptive capitalism : alternative, complementary & crypto-currencies : not for profit organisations, charities, NGOs, circular economies and state organisations dealing with conflict, relief and anti-poverty : New Economic Model networks (NEMs) : self-sustaining communities, eco-village and environmental campaign networks : public-led political movements : the increased impact of non-paid labour, globally. As Paul Mason concluded - in 'Post-capitalism; a guide to our future' - the 99% are coming to save us. This book explains how -
1 - To form an immediate parallel non-monetary economy, removing poverty and transforming global economics from debt-driven to a solvent market, profiting beyond anything that could be achieved or imagined using monetary capitalism.
2 - Employees are not paid by anyone. No money = no owner or benefactor. They earn for themselves, their employers and, if officially adopted, for state.
3 - This radicalises employment practices and relations; allows for re-evaluation and rewarding of anything that constitutes work; enables reduced working hours and beyond optimum employment; frees 'employers' from paying salaries; achieves increased productivity, product development, service improvement and profitability.
4 - It removes the competitive restrictions money motivates, enabling Eco-friendly business development; a culture of responsible commerce that plans and compensates for crises; more appealing investment options; de-incentivises money-motivated criminal activities and conflicts based on financial competitiveness and insecurities.
5 - It enables students to earn as they learn (which is work) and all currently unpaid voluntary work to be rewarded, boosting the economy.
6 - It removes need for profit maximising; enables international development and cooperation, so that under-developed communities or those hit by disaster can repatriate, reconstruct and re-invest.
7 - If adopted politically, it removes need for taxation.
None of this costs a single penny.
