Life scalability

The paradox of the economy means that a large portion of society shall be poor as they won't provide more benefits than they cost. The capitalist system means that you need to provide a lot of value added benefit to lots of individuals to profit. In other words there is a scalability problem to providing for yourself


The economy creates strange states that should not be acceptable such as being not capable of affording to travel to work or stay in a place near work. From my perspective these are socially not acceptable.

Someone needs to provide enough value to be paid and to pay all their costs.

These people cannot afford all their costs.

How do we invert the life scalability problem?

动物有机体是一个非资本主义系统,它实际上为它的所有细胞(即个体)提供持续的血液供应,这就像 UBI——普遍基本收入——应该防止这些“奇怪”的状态。将 UBI 视为一种来自人类的通用红利,可以通过税收来实现,我们当然应该防止那些“奇怪”的状态发生。每次我们让人们在经济上死去,我们不只是达尔文主义地抛弃了一部分人口,我们抛弃了社会潜力和多样性的一部分,它们在其他情况下会蓬勃发展,就像不同的物种在不同的情况下会繁荣一样。有些人不想工作正是因为社会制度不正确,而不是因为他们天生就有缺陷:他们需要一个不同的社会制度。

Right, to the point. Capitalist society seem to be intentionally made to be Darwinist, to work as a filter that lets part of the population die economically, entering those "strange" states below the threshold of being able to take (or pay for the cost of) opportunities. It would be okay, if we would find a way to let everyone succeed at reaching their high (if not full) potential. Yet, if this potential shares the same direction, people will face competition: everyone scaled up providing the same product or service that other people pay for would result in overproduction of that product or service, dropping its price, and letting only the best providers of it survive.

An animal organism is a non-capitalist system, that actually provides all of its cells (i.e., individuals) with constant supply of blood, which is like UBI -- universal basic income -- that's ought to prevent these "strange" states. Think of UBI as a kind of generic dividends from humanity, could be done through taxation, we certainly should prevent those "strange" states from occurring. Every time we let people die economically, we are not just Darwinistically discarding part of the population, -- we are discarding part of the social potential and diversity, that, under other circumstances would flourish, like different species flourish under different circumstances. There are people won't want to work exactly because the social system is not right, not because they are inherently flawed: they need a different social system.
