Team One are Voters and Leaders in Government. This Team implement #TEMature Economic Policy that provide new incomes, new spending-power, and the Engineering Safety nets that support #WPProjects. Not having #TEMature Policy today costs the U.S. us to $8 trillion dollars annually; and $600 billion in Exports for Canada and Great Britain annually as well. Our Economies no longer support a one-job-for-life workplace, so now guaranteed incomes permit mortgages, pensions, retraining and other basics of life to continue. Do you imagine that anyone will starve once food, basic goods, shelter, energy, transportation are available automatically to your entire community? No – of course not. Money becomes less and less relevant with automation too; the number of jobs decrease and the quality of everyone’s life increases … safely and sustainably. No Extreme Poverty, no World Wars, Universal Human Rights.
Team Two – Our Engineers build the 250 technology projects needed; just One Project Per Country. Most Constitutions mandate investment in “Livingry”, instead of just Weaponry. Technology and Science Projects begin in earnest – Robots build homes, roads, autonomous vehicles, and distribution warehouses; they plant, pick and transport food and clean water, and the build Energy Plants (read about Cirenergy here) until everyone has abundance. Pilot Worldville‘s take shape within just two years !
Project Coordination Teams at CSQ, and hopefully at the United Nations too, report status that keep assigned #WPProjects and side-projects on-target. The first Pilot Worldville‘s begin rolling out within just two to three years and evolve into sophisticated, fully life-cycle-managed connected towns and cities.
#WPProjects Social Projects
The Key to your next election’s voting decision are Wealth Distribution, Minimum Wage Targets, Graduated Tax, Tax Avoidance Stop-gaps and Safety Nets that ensure Living Wage Incomes and Renewed Spending Power plus additional incomes for Team Two Engineers and Technology Automation build teams.
Setting targets for wealth distribution might look like the following IDEAL chart – with five quintiles of income earners from highest to lowest. The second chart on the right shows what happens without economic controls and targets. These are actual US Wealth statistics as reported by US Federal Reserve in 2010 – and things are worse today if you can imagine it.
Notice how 40% of citizens have basically nothing today in the chart above right? Why do you suppose this line is at 40% and not say 51%? Well, 51% would allow a democratic vote to change things dramatically overnight. For this reason, this line is maintained so that if an important community (of voters) needs jobs or $100 million, they get what they need quickly. Then these proudly-purchased supporters announce to the media that politician A or B – “Means jobs!”. Nonsense, this dividing line is carefully monitored and managed by large teams to ensure that 60% desperately fear to lose what they have and keep on voting for a status quo that protects inequity.
Would it surprise you to learn that inequity probably costs Americans a conservative five-trillion dollars in new Wealth annually? It probably costs Canadians $630 billion per year as well. How? Read the Business Case for Empathy here.
Elsewhere in the world, the Netherlands for one example, has universal healthcare, childcare, retirements, housing, low unemployment, $20 minimum wages and per-capita wealth creation 150% more than an American; 300% more than a Canadian. Why? First, the cultural values of North Men taught them to look out for one-another due to the realities of living in harsh climates; and second, these country’s populations were smaller countries – so they could quickly see the impact of offshoring, foreign ownership, tax evasion, and other weak policy – and then they corrected these problems twenty years ago. Fifty million people live in similar Nordic Countries and still enjoy “the American Dream” today. America lost this back in the 1970s.
U.S. GDP Export was $1.62 trillion in 2014 – if you multiply this $1620 bil x 150% = $2430 bil; for a difference of $810 billion.
Can engaging the forgotten 40% of American’s (160 million people) really earn a new half-trillion annually. Real-world GDP Export statistics clearly demonstrate that once given the opportunity to be productive, people will be productive.
Holland is #5 on the CMI Index; the U.S. is at #60 and Canada ranks at #100/160. The CMI is a transparent measure of each country’s management team performance. To read more about CMI click here. To read more about the importance of resetting Incomes and Spending-Power, click here.
Our projects don’t pay workers to dig wells and bail water manually; instead we build robots that desalinate water and then pipe it to where it’s needed -automatically – while workers retrain with incomes afforded by the savings. For energy, we relaunch cheap, safe and plentiful Thorium Reactors, Cold Fusion, or use the earth’s own reactor through Geo-Thermal Energy We build the assembly lines that build driverless cars; the 3D clothing printers that also build and transport more 3D printers to where they are needed. We build robots that not only grow food, but they pick it, package it, distribute and deliver it to every home – in “Worldville” – automatically. A WPProjects Infrastructure investment spends 10% of typical project budgets building robots that automate road construction saving spending year over year.
We realize that if you feed a man a fish; or even teach him how to fish; his starving neighbors will subjugate him until they have what they need too, so we engineer in accordance with the Golden Rule and ensure that all can find abundance sustainably.
Running smart projects is a no-brainer, what is harder are the resources needed to communicate this Planning; and to continue to lobby 200 countries, world leaders, and the United Nations, to adopt JUST ONE PROJECT – one project per country.
#WPProjects began as a mitigation for delays in a 2035 deliverable of the CSQ 100 Year Plan called “Self-Powered Replicators”. This Plan was explained fully in a book released on Christmas Eve 2015 called World Peace – The Transition. These projects build a scalable, sustainable World Peace and so we rebranded them Worthwhile PLC Transition Projects and assigned robotic automations just in case our London College Physicists were delayed in their 2016 plans to create configurable matter from energy.
By compiling a list of the top 100 grocery items, top 50 hardware-store consumables, top 50 home furnishings, top 35 pharmaceuticals, and essentials from Maslov’s Hierarchy of Needs for basics of a Good Life like Clean Water, food, security, love, family, education, community, health care, and so forth – we arrived at a list of approximately 250 projects – as a starting point.
Many hands make light work, and so each of the 250 projects was assigned to one country; small countries were assigned simpler tasks and a larger sponsor-country was assigned to help them if needed. In this way, every country is ensured an opportunity to participate as well.
The first version 1.0 #WPProjects list has many provisos that permit countries to help one another – and to exchange project assignments as well. Many projects are missing, and these will make it onto the list as needed.
Project owners, once assigned, were asked to produce a working version 1.0 deliverable within a year; a v2.0 deliverable within two years. Version 2.0 had to allowed several variations – and they also had to inter-operated with other related systems. Food pickers – needed to communicate with automated transportation; which needs to communicate with automated warehouses; which have to auto-deliver food to homes based on a tablet, phone, computer or Television menu-based “App” ordering system.
Automation permits the manufacture of ever-improving resellable products around the clock, seven days a week. As the cost of robots continue to fall as well, automation’s cost effectiveness only improves. Asking workers to slow production and quality is a little like hiring people to bail water instead of hooking up a pump and water lines that automate the delivery of water. Engineers continue to be important because the robotics have to be built, programmed, deployed and maintained – and this leaves two billion displaced workers with three safety nets – or other employment to consider as alternatives.
- Re-training: Free education in field(s) of your choosing.
- Engineering Safety Net: Tinkerers and retired engineers, startup engineering teams, and savants who want to work alone or in groups to build automation – with full funding and support by government.
- Social Safety Nets: for Full-time parents, arts, employment transitions, and other productive pursuits as wished.
Reemployment – at a company and workplace where just one job per lifetime is no longer the norm and interruptions are offset by Guaranteed Incomes, Pensions, Benefits, Childcare and other benefits similar to those who enjoy the American Dream in Scandinavian Countries, the Netherlands, Switzerland and others.
GDP Statistics prove that citizens who can become involved in commerce, do get involved – and in greater percentages than countries that do not permit their participation – like Canada, the US, Mexico and others – see Wealth Distribution is Good for Business and More. If you were ever told that people will sit around like lazy slobs, the numbers say that many simply prefer to be their own boss while they do what they want to be productive and live worthwhile lives.
The world spends 30% of its fuel resources on food transportation; 30% more are given to commuting for business or employment. What inefficiencies can a well planned and automated system help to reduce? The switch to clean fuels and hybrid-diesels, thorium energy, and many many more benefits.
As our basics are met automatically, as we have no need to concern ourselves for shelter, nor retirement, nor healthcare – a quasi-Utopian model of society really can evolve as well. One in which there is no business case that prevents the cure for the common cold nor Cancer; no reward for jacking up the price of pharmaceuticals, food, housing, none of the many negatives of modern life that we have come to accept as unchangeable nor unimprovable.
World Peace Projects quite simply make money unimportant – without ever over-burdening/over-relying on any one government, or business entity to do so. Groceries start arriving sustainably and people begin to understand the wisdom of it… nothing happens suddenly; essential services are never in jeopardy; ambulances continue to arrive and hospitals keep working – things simply improve.
An example discussion of performance and reward changes include: Burn Ward or Cancer Care Healthcare Workers and Senior Citizens might be assigned to take lake-side homes. Socially irresponsible offshore hedge fund and tax dodge managers – may need licensing and can lose their rights and all privileges when society is damaged by their actions too. Our systems of reward are upside down presently …
Tighter controls are needed on the current monetary system, but money continues to be useful as “the servant” that it was originally intended to be. It is no longer, our master; no longer that tail that wags the dog (Our society). No notions of Anarchy – and transitions are planned well.
The Performance Reward Systems are discussed in the World Peace Transition book – with contribution by Russian and European societies; for Housing, Guaranteed Incomes, and a new field of Economics called Transition Economics.
Democracy has inherent, manageable flaws – but Democracy is also very very important.
Russell Brand is just one of millions of young advocates who vocally believe that voting doesn’t work. He’s not wrong; but revolution doesn’t work either – capitalism troughs every 60 years and a model of revolution would visit an avoidable crisis upon society too often; so – lets simply fix the voting system.
Why is voting important? Because democratic countries do not wage war against other democratic countries – ever. An end to wars is something worth protecting adamantly; its the secret ingredient to the recipe for World Peace! Why is democracy troublesome? Because democracies tend to stick with status quo – and to protect what the individual voter already has or what they already know – even when that vote diminishes the country.
For example: Poland is the longest-running pure democracy in the world; over the last 400 years their country shrunk from a Super-Power in the 16th Century, to one-sixth its original size in the 20th century – until it was easily defeated and its citizens victimized with the largest percentage of casualties for any population in the second world war. Poland’s consistent atrophy was the direct result of 400 years of deal-making and concessions by voting lords unwilling to compromise their individual positions.
Capitalism troughs every sixty years for the past 3500 years, so if we do not train Democratic voters to permit the Economic Control of Capitalism, we set the stage for Revolution the next time that inequity hits us again (Capitalism works as seen in the game of Monopoly). Instead of blindly stumbling into these troughs, teach kids a high-school Civics course that instructs them to manage capitalism & democracy (a course and text book is suggested at http://csq1.org/) – so that young people, and we parents too, begin to vote for policy that actively manages important Wealth Distribution goals, and other important policies as per the democratic voters list above on this page.
Perhaps a monthly Federal “WP-TV Policy Night” Show becomes the country’s next “Monday Night Football” TV program event – hosted by “Your Name Here”, or perhaps the program gets picked up as just a Pilot idea that something better replaces. Policies are important – leadership elections are only important when elected leaders fulfill their promised policy changes. When Policies are influenced by money and corruption, democracy is compromised … Being able to Vote reliably for beneficial policy IS the key to successful democracies – and to avoiding revolutions. Its something that you need to understand – and be able to explain well easily.
There is a solution, so solve it.
Policy Setting and Democratic Reforms
Unlike general elections where everyone votes equally, Policy Setting within a political party has to be voted upon by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) only. Who are SMEs and who are not SMEs? Academics spend their careers in silos presently – so until this changes, SMEs are not Phds, Chief Economists, etc. unless they have worked in multiple disciplines and faculties. DOers run projects that leverage expertise from all faculties as needed. SMEs are authors and leaders in engineering who also have business AND economics experience; then Medicine, Law, Finance and last – and only when Business Ethics Courses are updated to demand Licencing and Social Accountability that prevents harm to the public, Business Leads are next. Leaders with multi-faceted project experience, non-conflict-of-interest, multi-faculty experts that know how to build projects well.
Permitting non-SMEs to cancel out the votes of experts is what happens at Policy Conventions today, and this will tend to undo both the value of the policies suggested AND any hope for a positive outcome at election time. What does a bad policy decision sound like? For one example: “We could never implement driverless cars within five years, so we won’t embarrass ourselves by setting a target or making a plan for this”. Too late – in fact, driverless cars took just two years to get to a Pilot readiness release phase, the fact that you are embarrassed to plan for it – is embarrassingly shortsited in itself.
Policies that continue gender, race, and religious discrimination are unacceptable but country culture is very important; immigration policies must include compliance to language, on-shore hiring and tax minimums, inter-marriage expectations and percentage density maximums. Election Policy that is designed to win elections by pumping up a poorly-educated electorate is an abuse of the democratic process. Democratic reforms will be discussed as one of the Social Projects (see below). Fortunately abuse and corruption falters as #WPProjects’s transparent PMLC Method is better understood by our voters and young people. Get an introduction to PMLC in the high-school course CSQ Common Sense 101.
I mention above that democracy is very import but that they also work against change, so for this reason it is always better to ease transitions forward as benefits pose a preferred opportunity. For example, in Housing – a 5% unemployment or interest rate hike would force millions of people out of their homes and into the street literally today. This is an economic reality forced upon our citizens by housing bubbles, offshoring and many poor decisions by investors and business. Or – instead of losing your home, housing ownership could be rescinded to the state – simply another option available to the homeowner. This leaves people in their homes to live under a higher tax rate indefinitely. Its just a different “Land Grant System” for housing which you can Switch Back to an Ownership Model again whenever you get cash flush again. You may not realize that 70% of American homes are mortgaged by “Owners” who increasingly will never pay off their mortgage; this is an illegal financial practice called Usury.
None of our present systems are overtly brilliant and many are blatantly irresponsible in fact – change them for the better with your vote !!
a. Diesel vehicles – Gasoline vehicles tie us to fossil fuels. Diesel Fuel cars, however, run zero-emission fuel alternatives today – including Fischer-Tropsch processed Audi Blue Crude (a brew of baking soda and vinegar – basically) and an electric-diesel hybrid would get 100 mpg with 950km distances before a 10 minute refill starts you on your way again; using today’s existing technology. A Thorium Reactor in a car would run that car for 100 Years on a piece of Thorium the size of a Pea. A Tesla battery car creates more CO2 in its running life than a gas vehicle and takes 13 hours to recharge.
b. Geothermal Electricity – whenever you can dig down into the earth and super-heat a sufficient amount of water to 300 degrees, you can run a city on the steam created. How is this true? The earth is a natural Thorium Nuclear Reactor.
c. Cheap, Plentiful, Safe Thorium Nuclear Reactors – were designed and run for five years at the same time as our far more Expensive & Rare Uranium Reactors were developed. For reasons of profitability and weaponized plutonium production, Uranium Reactors became the standard reactor despite the recommendation of experts to adopt the far safer Thorium option in civilian settings. China has now set out to rebuild Thorium Reactors based on North American and European designs from the 1960s – so that we can buy back those designs from them?
d. Cold Fusion – clean, safe energy forever – it works; it is recently proven at an industrial scale; it is in the public domain. It amplifies power by up to 10 times – and also full Nuclear Fusion will be available in 10 years as well (Germany just got its plant through a successful trial test).
World Peace is just a Project !
