WE ARE ONLY HUMAN

Listen to this blog podcast on Spotify

We are living in a society which is rooted on an economic system with production and efficiency goals. Where making profit was the target, whatever it takes.

Now we come to the point where we realize this was perhaps a good idea back then, but we didn’t think it through, or could foresee the consequences of this production system on us, as human beings. It is/was a system where human interests were secondary. Simple as that.

In this era we are aware that the quality of life is more important than making money. Where human emotions are part of our existence and we cannot skip these in favor of chasing profit.  

As humans we are capable enough and worthy enough

So this is my pledge:

  • Please treat me as a human and not as a rational homo economicus or production tool
  • I’m aware of the tension between unlimited wants and limited means. I’m wise enough to realize this, and don’t need a production leader to tell me otherwise
  • I’m an authentic person and others are too, so please respect our uniqueness
  • As a real living person in this world, I realize when I have enough and I’m able to share

a better (business) world starts with you!

FEEL THE HEAT

Listen to this blog podcast on Spotify

Presently there is a lot of attention on our climate problems. True, no discussion about such a fact. But this problem is not caused by itself but by other, external elements then the climate system itself.

It is influenced by causes like industry pollution, too much harvesting, prevailing economic interests, and more. In other words it’s a systematic problem and as such needs a holistic solution.

These days we live in a society where well-fare is more important then well-being. As long as this is the adagium, nothing will improve. As long as economic interests lead our decisions, no shift will occur.

Our society is run by leaders of commercial companies, policy makers, profit seeking individuals and more. As long as they run the commercial show nothing will change. Because these are short term interests and not long term, sustainable, trajectories. Do you really expect those who caused the problems, will bring the solutions for a social economy?

That’s why we need a dramatically ideologic shift. But it seems we have to experience our hell first, and feel the heat below our feet, before we step into action….

So join our movement and take action for a social economy!
