A Modest Proposal for Preventing the Crumbling Economic System and Rising Deficit from Laying Waste to the American Society and for Providing Financial Stability to it’s Citizens

 

It is the almost inescapable burden of longing to avoid the deadly plunge into debt and defeat, wishing to maintain a sound and balanced budget, and meeting the daily requirements and desires of the flesh and heart that causes so many to make rash and inconsiderate decisions leading to the demise of a habitable domain. This selfless compassion of every citizen to provide for the common good through the transfer of assumed value that ultimately becomes their downfall, for more fail than succeed in living a healthily lifestyle, free of monetary concerns and the scent of detritus decomposing under the sun. As no just man can state the root of these misfortunes is the result of any one being, it can be assumed that this unfortunate mishap can only be solved through a collective decision to eliminate it for the betterment of all. The overt resolution for an issue that condescends humanity entirely is not meant just to dissolve the problem for those already entangled by it, but can prevent any child under God from every feeling its grasp. Wallets can be empty, but food on the table still. The government can spend without fear of being barred by fiscal limitations. The millions of Americans that cannot meet their needs on the day to day basis can walk away from the endless battle unscathed and able to contribute their unique culture to the great melting pot without pain or suffering. It is therefore that I offer up the inevitable conclusion, one which will simultaneously fix and destroy the economic system to reap maximum benefits. As I gazed upon golden stars it became apparent to me that we could provide the ultimate distribution of wealth through the doing away of modern currency, allowing citizens to obtain any necessity or want at no cost, to either them or the vendor. Items are only worth the value the consumer attributes to it, and by forgoing the need to assign this value we can allow the consumers to achieve maximum buying power creating a perfect economic system. There will be no distinguishable classes, as there will be no monetary confinements. People can purchase what they please, and the words hunger, poverty, and broke will be things of the past. Nothing will be too expensive or not in the budget, leaving companies to provide the most quality service and amenities obtainable. Any ambitious businessman can appreciate the establishment of a free-market system, and now it is being expanded to become a free, market system. While some may question the lifespan of a system where one is guaranteed what they can carry can be quickly resolved through simple yet effective guidelines to help the transition be accompanied by as little hoarding as possible. In order to maintain a sufficient supply of any item, relaxed guidelines will be put into place, allowing any given individual to obtain ten per week, whatever the item may be. Failure to submit to the restrictions will, of course, result in the termination of that individual, which is the necessary and justifiable way to deal with both addicts and those taking advantage of the system alike. The incentive to work may also be questioned without monetary gain, but this can be resolved through what will become known nationwide as Taco Tuesday, providing all hardworking Americans with as much Mexican fiesta as they can handle, unloading other delicacies such as five layer dip and nachos all-the-way. Our brethren, now free from the economic challenges they face north of the border will happily assist in the preparation and distribution of this buffet. I myself, have a severe allergy to tortilla chips, but I will happily join in the birth of a new era where the great patriots of today can look debt in the face for the last time.
