Re: All the six About sections as they relate to the Community Business Venture.

Here are my current and additional thoughts on the subject of the community business venture. Although this writing is a bit of a mixed bag, my overall impression of the venture is, THIS HAS TO BE THE GREAT MOTHER OF ALL CROWDSOURCING PROJECTS. Count me in. As far as I can tell there is pervasive ba...

Re: All the six About sections as they relate to the Community Business Venture.

This is interesting! We get to crowdsource ourselves for ourselves As a volunteer on the site I have been given the opportunity to read the entire plan and I am impressed with its scope and depth. Most importantly, it is one of the few plans I have encountered that has the potential to actually sign...

1. Add a Like or Dislike button by Doctor A

I think you should add both a "Like" (with a thumb up) and a "Dislike" (with a thumb down) rating to the site. This will give individuals more feedback about their posts. A single thumbs up does not tell you nearly as much information as the double thumb indicator would. I have noticed many of the v...

1. LET US ESTABLISH OUR OWN FINANCIAL INSTITUTION FOR THE 99% COMMUNITY By Doctor A

Part 1: The basics idea is as follows: To create a national financial institution, such as a bank or credit union, which is truly responsive to the needs and values of the 99% community. Our own financial institution would act to reduce economic inequality while supporting our crowdsourcing and cro...

Re: New Age Slavery

Seanc, From the article: "The disparities in wealth that we term “income inequality” are no accident, and they can’t be fixed by fiddling at the edges of our current economic system. These disparities happened by design, and the system structurally disadvantages those at the bottom. The poorest Amer...

Re: New Age Slavery

Kirk, Looks like time is running out as the middle class is no longer dominant in the USA. One has to wonder how many of these individuals still have the illusion of freedom. It is a milestone indicating we are further along into an ever increasing Economic Inequality by the rich and the subsequent ...

Re: New Age Slavery

Seanc, No doubt many a congressman, attorney, and staff member has spent countless hours plying their craft to enact just such structures. Although many profess to embrace the golden rule, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, they are really espousing a different golden rule, "those ...

Re: New Age Slavery

Yes, we can stop it. By stopping Wage Inequality I do not mean we drag it to the bathtub and drown it. By stop I mean we reduce it to tolerable levels so it stops having such a detrimental effect upon the rest of us. The first order of business is to stop the 1% from telling us what is good for us, ...

Re: New Age Slavery

Most assuredly Wage Inequality causes slavery, just not the type stereotypically portrayed on television or in the movies. When many people think of slavery they think of modern day Blacks or ancient Jews in the days of the Pharos. The slave, bound with ropes or iron shackles, was restrict in their ...

Re: Let us know what you think about Wilkinson's video?

Wow, what an eye opener! The counter-intuitive aspects of economic inequality boggle the mind. Before I watched this video I assumed the grim effects if economic inequality were based upon an absolute degree of wealth and income. Little did I realize it is the perceived social hierarchy and a person...
