Continuum of Capitalism (Oligarchy vs Communism vs Socialism)

Continuum of Capitalism, an Explanation

This post will discuss my set of Continuum of Capitalism infographics which were added to my post: The Cancer of Capitalism and Its Antidote. I want to explain this idea more because, in that post, I just post these two graphics and do not explain it or do I explain my ideas on economic systems at all. Keep in mind, that this post is speaking in very simplified and very broad and sweeping terms. 

If you have NOT read my Cancer of Capitalism post from above, then please go read it NOW!!

Benefits of a Resource Based Economy for Industries and Businesses

In reading, researching, and writing about a Resourced Based Economy (RBE) over the last year my complete view of the how the world is and how it could be has radically changed. This post will cover how businesses and entire industries could be transformed while attempting to make the world a better place by attempting to fix unbridled capitalism towards a more ethical model for businesses.

The end result for manufacturing, businesses, and research is beyond what we would define as businesses or even government, because it transcends these, and eventually requires the end of capitalism and its horrors, so thinking of business in a way that is outside how capitalism defines it can be a difficult feat. If you have not read my previous posts on Resource Based Economies and watched those documentaries then you may want to do that, so that you have the background to understand what I am talking about. Here are links to those posts:

11 EU Nations Just Kicked Off a Plan to Make Public Science Free For All of Us

This is a big freaking deal! I cannot tell you how many times I wanted access to a research paper or a doctoral or research thesis and it was hidden behind a freaking pay wall, which pretty much stopped my knowledge inquiry cold! =)

Fortunately, there has been a movement over the last decade or so to set knowledge and research free and there have been various educational institutions which have likewise done so, even in the US. All publicly funded research should be available for all! All research and knowledge should be available for all… period. This is a great step forward! 

Read it and rejoice! This is one of the many reasons why Europe is decades ahead of USA and its arrogance, ignorance, hubris, and faux-ceptionalism!

Review of Calendar Reforms

I am going to write what I think is required for a successful world-wide secular calendar and for calendar reform. I will also list my reviews of the various calendar reform attempts too. I also have a spread sheet with point based ratings of the various Calendar Reform attempts, which also includes a comparison to our current world-wide secular calendar which is the Gregorian Calendar (Wikipedia). I have also posted a bunch of information, history, and issues with the Gregorian Calendar in my 45-page blog page on the Calendar Reform, so if you want to get the skinny on our calendar then please read through that post. It is a page turner, let me tell ya.

Reformed International Fixed Calendar

A Reformed International Calendar (rIFC)

If you do not know what the International Fixed Calendar (IFC) is, why it matters, or why I would want to reform it, then please read my very large 45-page blog page on the Calendar Reform where I: first talk about the significant issues with our current Calendar, the Gregorian Calendar, and then talk about how the International Fixed Calendar (IFC) solves all of those issues. Towards the end of that large document I recommend some reforms to the IFC to help make it even better.
