Understanding Corporate Law, Scarcity Economics
and Divide-to-Conquer Corporatism
Our entire body of economic theory, starting from Malthus and Keynes, is rooted in the concept of scarcity... that there's not enough to go around so that some must have more and some must have less - a win/lose game plan that translates to the oxymoronic "value of scarcity" that conceals, wastes and outright destroys abundance to maintain the scarcity that keeps prices, profits and/or control high by the 'owners'.
Of course that was the prevailing awareness of most of history and clearly outpictured in all the wars of the 20th Century. It's the selfish view of those who want to control populations, making merchandise of them by owning what they consume and depend on for security. And it's an obsolete view in an advanced technological world where a virtually unlimited abundance of clean energy, knowledge power, nutritious food, pure water and holistic health could be provided for everyone... if we all agreed to serve abundance virtues rather that scarcity values.
The problem is that the most powerful win/lose special interests in the world have a vested interest in dividing to conquer, keeping common sense uncommon (scarce) regarding the potential for the Abundant Life for all mankind.
Since ownership and control is 90% of the law, those who have power through ownership and control have a value system -- under scarcity economics -- that justifies control of personal profits above public benefit, morality aside. Unfortunately, absolute power corrupts absolutely with outright greed consuming many of the power elite whose love of power has eclipsed the power of love. Or as Gandhi was known to say, "Commerce without morality is a sin."
Corporate law dictates that "The interests of shareholders comes before the public wherever profits are at stake" This precedence was set by the "Red Lion" decision in "Henry Ford versus the shareholders" when they sued him for the profits he was going to pass on to the customer due to the production line he developed for Model T's. Today this win/lose scarcity-based profits-before-people gameplan (Roman Law) warrants accelerated concentration of wealth in approximately 1-2 percent of the population while the rest work more for less. The value of scarcity translates to values of control and domination by the few at the expense of the many. The self-serving special interests of the few rule over the public good: government over people rather than "for the people".
I heard former President Jimmy Carter (11-10-05), speaking on the
Charlie Rose show about his receipt of the Nobel Peace Award a few
years previous. He was asked what he saw as the biggest
problem of the world as he saw it. Carter had mentioned many
core issues like the fundamental shift of Church and State to
commingling of values that were creating a "
"Fascism should be rightly called corporatism as it is
The core problem of "corporatism" -- with all its pay-offs via prestige, profit, power and pleasure (for the few) -- can best be understand as the shift of "worth-ship" -- what we value with our attention, energy and sacred labor -- and how the outer sense of "values" in a system that puts profits before people will inadvertently sabotage the inner sense of loving virtue, higher conscience, and the core Constitutional freedoms that sustain the meaning "of, by and for the people"... to rationalize and justify the reverse-engineering of the public good for corporate profits.
To be in the world but not of the world is the test that's best in this dense/dark octave of "incarnation" (schoolroom if you will) where "the light shineth in the darkness but the darkness comprehendith it not". Indeed the most difficult thing in the world is to remain non-attached to worldly things - the perks that pay-off (bribe) the common sense of social conscience with the lock-step, linear letter of the law that kills the Spirit of the law.
Breaking the cycles of personal and planetary discord, dis-ease, and dysfunction that leads to death of the soul is the paradigm shift that all upward-mobile souls pursue.
It's not rocket science; either we culture unity-in-diversity with the capability of universal TeLeComm for a global rEVOLUTION in Higher Conscience... or the divide-to-conquer win/lose values of scarcity economics will continue to sabotage sovereignty while creating austerity for 99% of 'US' - United Sovereigns of Earth.
