INSTEAD!! WE USE OUR INTERNET TO BULLY!! STOP!! Read this amazing article form the BBC.
"These plants are not really individuals in the sense that Darwin thought they were individuals competing for survival of the fittest," says Simard in the 2011 documentary Do Trees Communicate? "In fact they are interacting with each other, trying to help each other survive."
As a THINKING Boomer looking at society NOW, we can see that all systems are collapsing. They are NOT at all doing their intended jobs. Education and its promised Careers, Healthcare, the REAL Economy with its control by government and large corporations, are NO LONGER providing quality of life they were intended for. A THINKING Boomer sees the past was handled with NO THOUGHT to consequence. Now the Future looks very bleak. A focus on Thomas Friedman (profit), Ayn Rand (the self), plus a culture of consumption with no thought to waste .. leaves us a planet BARREN of quality assets.
A Basic Quality of Life consists of 1) basic life needs are met, 2) we have basic Physical Health, 3) We have basic Emotional Health. Basic life needs 1) are food, shelter and life necessities and even some fun! Basic Physical Health is the absence of discomfort, ability to enjoy life without pain. Emotional Health is the ability to enjoy life with minimal stress, anxiety or trauma
Are your customers raving about you on social media? Share their great stories to help turn potential customers into loyal ones.
Mental health is confused with PHYSICAL Health .. a misfuntion of the brain
Government and Corporations control our lives completely. If we create our own community eventually we can trade our assets amongst us, creating a better quality of life. Those in power have completely forgotten we are the GREATEST ASSET. Not a liability to be avoided. With a Blockchain ledger, we can trade our resources! Sharing our time, talents, skills, along with physical resources, (unneeded items, unused space) we can create a quality of life far surpassing the stressed insecure begging life we now live.
Jan 3, 2021 ..
I was looking for a SEARCH program for us to match what we put IN, and what we need OUT of our Blockchain TRADE Ledger. Thought maybe an Employee search Tool might be better than a dating match program? The articles I found .. how to chose an employee made me terrified although I am SO lucky for my Teaching Pension. That Boomers invented "progress" that stole that security from you is so unfair .. but I have to QUIT WASTING MORE YEARS OF ENERGY FEELING GUILTY .. and instead put that energy into figuring out ways to help!
We Boomers can trade services we need with YOU instead of some Corporation. Why not build a LOCAL delivery system instead of use UBER (capitalism on steroids) and deliver whatever not just food. OR ..go teach an old lady wanting more Tech skills, and she can feed you dinner and send lunch home with you. Get along great? adopt as grandma, move into empty house and help with hard jobs in return no rent!
We have lost our creativity! But if we get together I think we could figure out how to use the blockchain locally as Trade Ledger. If the grid goes down we know each other, TRUST each other and keep functioning anyway. We are way to dependant on all internet connected and leave ourselves very open to crisis. Sorry, I am not at all Tech knowledgeable so please add your skills to get this "BARN RAISING" for us "new pioneers" done! Young people have the Tech knowledge but we are heading for collapse to be so way to dependent. Global is wonderful IF YOU HAVE LOCAL COMMUNITY CONNECTION. We don't .. greedy developers and the elevator STOLE THE NEIGHBOURHOOD that made life great.

Oh my god!! Why did I never think of this before? If we share responsibilities, we can actually create more time why did that never register in my brain before the link on the other page resource health has the article that said the magic words that made me think of this so let’s say we live on a floor with eight apartments of people that’s kind of like what a neighborhood used to be a little neighborhood so we’ve got no money for restaurants were short of time and so eight people on that floor spend an hour cooking and 30 minutes shopping and each one of us on that floor is spending it every day so we turn our floor into our little neighborhood and instead of just looking for me I spend a little extra time and I cook for eight people it only takes a little extra time to shop a bigger amount and to cut up a bigger amount it would take longer but now there’s eight people you’ve got seven nights where you just saved an hour or an hour and a half and that’s like saving a workday oh my God you just saved a workday
That’s some pretty amazing resource management usually you can only trade a certain thing for another thing of equal value but now you just created value right like if you saved yourself almost like a workday from all that cooking and cleaning up because if you have a pot of soup for eight people or a stew for eight people the pots you know you still got to clean up what do you clean up free people or yourself I mean a but might be a lot maybe just the four people at your end of the hall.
Now what if all of you have a little children you’re trying to figure out how to get to the store to buy your groceries so for if you have children so you keep taking turns because you can look after four children just as good as you can look after one child so one person takes the four children and the other three mothers can go out and get their errands done and so again that gives you like what six or whatever I can’t do the math so fast but it gives you like 363 hours well you could’ve got that by paying a babysitter but if we’re all short of money then we just created something outNothing
THANKS , personal finance extension .org .. you got me started on this train of thought that I have long neglected!!
also go to my Resource link
How could someone I birthed, think so completely differently from me? .. Extreme opposites on every possible topic or discussion? So many decades later I though she was still a teenager. But she must be thanked because I think I have discovered every theory relates and shows us what our PHYSICAL Health problem is in our division. Dr Iain Mc Gilchrist's work is immensely helpful to understand the science and the social implications.
see also warrior/ worrier, Binary mindset people (Republicans), and the "selfish vs selfless" spectrum. Left Brain Republicans think "get over it and get er done!". They are action mids, the Doers. They are successful because they feel we should all look after ourselves and feel with hard work they deserve any profit they can devise. There is no need to share, just work hard and you too will be fine. People who struggle never tried hard enough. "Don't tax me to help them! they SHOULD have helped themselves like I did. I had a hard time too! I got no breaks, but I made a great life for myself"
Extreme Republicans or left brain people have no compassion for those less fortunate. drug addicts, alcoholics or homeless people should just get their act together. They have no concept of some having less resources than they had. They can not recognize that self worth, feelings of deservedness are huge resources. These come through connection and belonging, which all of us were not so lucky to have.
Ayn Rand and Friedman were god sends to Left brain Republicans. Put on your gas mask first (and then you can help others). But they forgot the last half of the concept. Yes, many Right brain people do NOT look after themselves, always worrying about the world or others. And that is also something NOT creating quality of life for all. But at least there is understanding for others and the opposite, instead of dismissal of others as "losers". The selfish /selfless spectrum should definitely be balanced within a person. You must look after yourself or you will NOT be able to help others. But Philanthropy should not be honoured after a CEO has been self absorbed and selfish not paying his employees or his taxes! (see B Corp PLUS link)
Right Hemisphere people are the inventors, innovators and visionaries. Use to be they would work with a CEO, manager Left brain type to build a new industry or concept. Since our brains have been destroyed with the toxins of our life we simply demonize the other side instead of celebrate our opposite skill as ASSETS
If you are locked in a relationship with a character driven by the opposite Brain hemisphere .. good luck .. the battles will NEVER end. Fair warning, extreme opposite brain wiring people should NEVER get into relationships of ANY kind, even business. Neither side is wrong or the enemy, and for us to succeed both are needed. But with little balance in our brain this will be a difficult (civil) war to fight.
This right left is VERY confusing to me because it is the opposite to my initial belief .. that my daughter is a Republican and I a liberal. Politically right and left REFERS TO THE SIDE OF THE CAPITAL THEY SIT ON! And this is the complete opposite! In other words Republicans are driven by the LEFT Hemisphere of their brain, which manages the right side of their body.
We can try all we want .. but until we can come together and LISTEN/ THINK/ and RECONSIDER our own viewpoint with an open mind, our society is OVER. In light of another person's ideas or beliefs we need to contemplate that concept, analyze it, evaluate its reasonability and then TRY to include it in our conclusions. We used to be able to do that because our brains were more balance in right and left functions. With only one hemisphere functioning we can only hate each other, because ewe are diametrically opposed in everything.
LUCKILY for us .. many people , hopefully the masses .. still have somewhat balanced right/ left hemispheres. Only then can we more easily listen to another side, think about it, and reconsider how we could compromise our conclusions.
We have to decide .. do we TRULY want to change the "system"? We now have inequality lacking any justice, in all our Societal Systems .. especially if your skin is black. If we are bored and want to feel good, a PROTEST is great. And protests do a fabulous job getting people in power to listen. But if we really want things to change, NOW is when the REAL HARD WORK STARTS. We need policies to change, nota shallow "blackwashing" pretence.
Companies are pretending to support BLACK LIVES MATTER. Coke sponsored BET. But lets call this "backwashing"? What does it REALLY do to fix Systemic Racism? Even Dove's Million $ donation is kind but what will it change? What if we all stick together and besides educating others on how we are sometimes prejudiced .. we ENCOURAGE TRULY ETHICAL COMPANIES TO JOIN IN THE FIGHT? Are they simply using our protest effort as a way to target themselves as "good" ("blackwashing"?) ? OR .. if they want to create a more equal system of justice for all they work to become B Corp PLUS Certified. THEN .. and only then will we buy ANY of their products. This is our tool of POWER. They need our $$ for their almighty profit!! We have totally forgotten that!
"Dollar Voting" is our long forgotten WEAPON, that we can take peaceful CONTROL with. The name and practise was subverted right at its invention .. in the late 60's!! We are told to VOTE. But that happens SO INFREQUENTLY and do we know it is fairly counted? Do we really know who and what we are voting for? Usually power corrupts, since it is a human failing to handle power poorly. "Make your VOTE heard" is a shallow mantra from those who want to KEEP their OWN power. It does little to REALLY change systems that favour the Elite (Whites?).
We do have REAL power in another vote .. our "DOLLAR VOTE".. what we agree to buy. What we buy supports a Business, without our purchase they have no profit. We can control a business by NOT BUYING. If the millions of protestors did not say buy coke .. coke would definitely FEEL our protest! What if we start to seriously utilize our REAL POWER to control .. especially to affect BIG BUSINESS BEHAVIOUR?
"Dollar Voting" was introduced in the Founder's Guelph University 1969 "Resource Management" Degree. It was the first "Consumer Studies" class. Sadly it was at that time that Coporations were seizing power over higher Education and the class was soon discontinued. Can't be teaching people they actually HAVE some source of power. Today we see the result of that Fortune 500 move into education .. Corporations OWN our very existence.
Luckily the old Home Economics (now upgraded as Resource Management) will serve us well. We don't need P G 700 cleaning alternatives, just baking soda and vinegar. We can do this .. but it will take study, patience and RESOLVE. But sadly our systems in collapse, the decline of our societal Heath leave no choice but for change. These collapsing systems cannot continue to serve any quality of life whatsoever!
Some Companies saw our society was no longer working (PwC) .. they would be the first we approach to partner with us. Instead of an Ad "we give 1 million to Black Lives Matter" if they become B Corp Certified they must actually WORK TOWARD INJUSTICE AND INEQUALITY IN SOCIETY
Get involved as a Sponsor. Your Brand can be on our gift of calm TV Network.
But only of you agree to become "B Corp PLUS" Certified! That means 1) Pay taxes like me!! .. not less % than me, yet on 100 x my salary, PLUS ALSO pay Corporate tax!
2) Pay people a real "living" and give them respect. 3) Do not harm the planet, 4) Still be philanthropic on top!
Being kind and sharing will make you happier! ..way happier than another yacht, or another mansion. Sorry that is disgusting! If you think people who struggle just did not work as hard as YOU .. then get the heck off our "no more injustice and inequality" Island!! Sorry to be mean, but come back when you get less SELFISH.
We have already begun to affect change with the Police Brutality of Black Lives! The totally disgusting impunity we saw, as we watched a modern day LYNCHING, was hopefully the shock that woke up the nation. While we continue the entrenched eradication of Racism, we can do even bigger things like the overall injustice and inequality of Blacks. We can also add voices from the widening of "have's" vs "have not's" sides. The more we join TOGETHER the better, instead of still more and MORE division.
We see now that we do have the power! But let's unite with the many GOOD Police who ALSO believe in JUSTICE and EQUALITY. More thoughtful Peace Builder Training can help us respect Officers again. Law and Order is far too simple a System, get the "bad" guy. Life is more complex .. nothing is simply binary 2 sides. But we have made everything so complex and overwhelming we are simplifying into good/ evil. Instead let's go back to a simpler life, leaving time and patience for UNDERSTANDING each other. A simpler life will also let us get our TOTAL health back.
While we are at changing the culture of (policing) as Law and Order .. let's just fix all the broken Systems while we are at. it. They all fit together to keep us powerless, especially if our skin is Black. (Read the last 2 paragraphs disagreeing with "The Color of Law, Richard Rothstein. TRUTH is SOOOO hard to find!) Education, Health, The Justice System, Career Training all of our Systems perpetrate inequality. They NO LONGER have long been well Functioning Systems. Without TRANSFORMATION Society will finally collapse. We have gone too far off the course of common sense, and even contemplation of more than just A to B Action (tearing down statues?)Or have we lost all Intelligence and sanity in our quest for ever newer faster more convenient "PROGRESS"?
Please understand these sites are ONLY Prototypes , completely unfinished. There will be 3 websites when completed ..
Website 1)= PERSONAL Quality of Life, 2) = POPULATION Quality of Life, 3) = Economic and "Systems" Quality of Life .. all creating SOCIETAL HEALTH .. or REAL quality of life.
All are ideas of how we can have more power over each area of our life. All sites (books) are completely unedited and not even finished .. but if they can somehow help and give someone new possibilities and Hope for now .. AWESOME.
