Eliminate Interest
***
There is one key driver that causes massive distortion in the society, 'Greed'. While it is something we cannot control or avoid altogether but it can be contained to a great extent by eliminating 'interest'. The genie will be put back in the bottle! It would be much easier then to control the other minor ills in our society, preparing the ground to achieve some balance and establish an equitable society.
 
That would be the greatest gift to mankind! However, those who craftily use it as their most powerful weapon to exert pressure, manipulate the system and retain control won't let it happen so easily. The gargantuan task and the mammoth challenge is to tell people about it. Initiate a debate by harnessing the power of the social media. People in general may find it unthinkable to do so as it is ingrained in our minds as a non negotiable reality. Something sacrosanct and inviolable!
 
Time value of money; a fancy phrase, an illusion, a trap to mould our minds that the world of ours is like a ruthless jungle where only the fittest are privileged to survive and thrive while the weak are meant to be devoured and they have to suffer, causing a frenzy in the society, triggering a Rat Race; Run Forrest Run....
 
We are taught and trained to follow the rules of the jungle in order to create a humane society, really? Isn't that a self contradictory concept, a highly flawed premise? Something that doesn't add up or make sense at all! A clear path forward to create more divide in the society, rich becoming richer...
 
Is there a compelling reason to believe and be convinced that the current financial system or way of life in general will yield results any different than what we have seen so far? Especially in the post AI era where need for human labour will become less and less, and the fact that it is just around the corner??
 
If the existing dilapidated system is what we accept then it won't be a victory on part of the Haves as it has always been, but a shameful defeat that we have chosen for ourselves and the next generations despite the fact that we have the power to change it, if we are aligned, the choice is ours, the Havenots!
 
Cheers!
