“They are about “to assume,” as they tell us, “among the powers of the earth, that equal and separate ( 120 ) station to which” — they have lately discovered — “the laws of Nature, and of Nature’s God entitle them.” What difference these acute legislators suppose between the laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, is more than I can take upon me to determine, or even to guess. If to what they now demand they were entitled by any law of God, they had only to produce that law, and all controversy was at an end. Instead of this, what do they produce? What they call sell-evident truths. “All men,” they tell us, “are created equal.” This rarity is a new discovery; now, for the first time, we learn, that a child, at the moment of his birth, has the same quantity of natural power as the parent, the same quantity of political power as the magistrate”.

Energy-Based Economics should define its own boundary limits and assumptions from tested first principles and where evidence rejects existing sacred cow dogmas they should be retired and new evidence-based measures and objectives designed to replace them. In Neo Liberal, Political Correctness and Cultural Marxist tribes Evidence is not necessary or encouraged as Professor Bruce Charlton says. Professor Bruce Charlton´s Thought prison of PC is an excellent filter through which to sieve the meaning of the establishment´s words to discern their meaning and importantly in their confusion, their emotion.
´´The moral universe of PC subsists on two distinct realities – good causes and good intentions, but never the twain can stay stuck-together.
(Note the lack of reference to good outcomes. Being wholly abstract, PC is indifferent to outcomes. ‘Outcomes’ are regarded as having no autonomous reality, but are merely seen as part of abstract theory.)´´http://thoughtprison-pc.blogspot.se/
made their money, or how, on occasion, they lost it. Playing a
long-practised game, they are familiar with the chances of its
cards, and can rightly explain their losses and gains. But they
neither know who keeps the bank of the gambling-house, nor what
other games may be played with the same cards, nor what other
losses and gains, far away among the dark streets, are
essentially, though invisibly, dependent on theirs in the lighted
rooms. They have learned a few, and only a few, of the laws of
mercantile economy; but not one of those of political economy.
The Terra is a global complementary currency designed to provide an inflation-resistant international standard of value; to stabilize the business cycle on a global level; and to realign stockholder’s interests with long-term sustainability. From a legal viewpoint, the Terra is standardized “countertrade” (international barter), which is routinely used for over one trillion dollars worth of transactions per year. Legislation on countertrade exists in about two hundred countries, including all the major trading nations. Introducing the Terra would therefore not require new international governmental agreements.
The Idea of Elitism and Pre-destination or Determinism is very strong in much of what passes for Objective Socio/Economic theory these days.
This Etching for me sums up the dividing line of Cynisim and Misanthropy.
