(0 A July 2018) LifeLab_LittleBeekeepers.jpgWe are not the first society to go through a period of extreme polarizations. We easily can gain perspective into our current environment by reading histories or watching films that take place in earlier times. Some of us are tiring of vitriolic behavior which, historically, has always been a negative facet of the human condition but is much more visible with social media proliferation and some of us, instead of complaining, are seeking and offering solutions to our problems.

I discovered one of those thoughtful humans. I think his ideas will open discussions leading to solutions, because, as families we are already practicing them, and as parents, although immersed in the daily details, we seek overarching principles by which to raise our children.

  Creating Community Within Our Families

An article, "What capitalism prioritizes, the world does more of. So how can we change capitalism so that it focuses on what humans really want and need?" intrigued me. It sounded positive. As I read through it, I realized that the basis of Andrew Yang's "surprising proposal" was identical to the environment we strive to create within our families.

(0 A July 2018) CapitalismChange.jpg"What capitalism prioritizes, the world does more of. So how can we change capitalism so that it focuses on what humans really want and need? Entrepreneur Andrew Yang has a surprising proposal. Think of the activities on the list below:

  • Parenting or caring for loved ones
  • Teaching or nurturing children
  • Creating art, music, dance
  • Working in struggling regions near our hometowns
  • Reading or writing for pleasure or personal growth
  • Preventative health care
  • Character-building for your kids, your team, yourself
  • Building community connections
  • Having a hobby
  • Becoming involved in local government

Most of us do some or many of these things - and usually, we don't do them for money. What these activities add up to is what we might call a normal life, a well-rounded life of care and character, rich with community and creativity and balance. When you do these things, you don't think of yourself as participating in capitalism.

 

But the fact is, capitalism moves and energizes the modern world. And what capitalism values, our world does more of; what it doesn't, we do less of. Many of us feel like the activities of a normal life are becoming harder and harder to accomplish. So the question becomes: In a system where capitalism is a prime determinant of value, how can we preserve what we truly value as humans, what matters to us beyond money?" continue>>>
