My grandpa once told me: “Listen dipsh* t, if you rely on someone else for your food … then they own you AND your lovely wife.”
Well … my crazy grandpa wasn’t totally wrong. There is simply too many people on this planet and not enough resources to go around. All the family’s generational wealth has been either divided into dust or soaked up by the rich 1 %. The division of wealth and power in this world is so unbalanced, it’s sick and saddening. Because of this, there are many people struggling who are so tormented and defeated … homeless, unemployed, or running as wage slaves( because overpopulation makes for inexpensive labor ); that they feel like there is no room for them in the future and that suicide is the only option. In our current world, the right to eat, shelter, and drink fresh water are not guaranteed rights to ALL someones! That fact is absolutely only mind blowing. Who’s to blame? Humanity’s greed, overpopulation, and poor distribution of efforts and resources, perhaps.( Rant over)
THE ETHICAL SOLUTION of a RADICAL NEW WORLD:
In my opinion, The Great Pyramids of Egypt are a simple reminder of Maslow’s 6-tier hierarchy of needs. When you take Maslow’s pyramid and blended it with a hybrid of Homesteading and Universal Basic Income, something heavenly is born! Regardless of birth race, place, or poverty…I believe all people of earth and all governances should adjoin to fulfill the common goal that each living person has the right to have their Physiological needs gratified. We NEED to get people gardening and reconnected with their roots!( If we don’t, people’s nutritionless crappy diets will continue resulting in cancer and disease .) In my opinion, it’s what we ALL NEED. I call it Maslow’s Ark.
Maslow’s Ark – Life on Earth should be modeled after Heaven; with a place and purpose prepared for you when you’re born. When bear to the Earth, you deserve the human rights of your basic physiological needs such as food, water, and shelter.( Not to struggle because your dirt poor mothers selfishly birthed you to’ duck-tape’ their failed wedding together … or because they get a child tax credit! sarcasm **) We, The United People of Earth in order to transcend Maslow’s Physiological needs as a birthright. Achieved by way of hybrid mixture of self-sufficient homesteading and Universal Basic Income( UBI) payments. To transform and upgrade shitty land and transgressed homes into self-sufficient sustainable functional quality 2 or 4 Acre personalized (‘ green new deal ‘/ permaculture) homesteads and housing, thereby creating an economy of guaranteed paid chores with the support of resources from local and world governances centrally focused on preparing places( aka Heavens on earth) for other persons and future generations. When working for Maslow’s Ark, you are essentially doing the work of an Angel.( Biblically speaking, Naoh’s Ark was a literal ship, but what is Planet Earth, but one giant Space Ship ?) This way of life is my little brain-child and I are intended to name it “Maslow’s Ark.”
We all have Physiological needs to live a fulfilled life. Nobody wants war. Nobody wants death or famine. I want to focus specifically on the’ end-cap’ Tiers 1& 6 of Maslow’s pyramid as how they would look if applied to our current world. I think that all countries and individuals with a net wealth over $10 m must contribute generously of resources by a majority vote( perhaps) via coordination of the United Nations leveraging to kick-start this.
A quick refresher of Maslow’s 6-tier pyramid 😛 TAGEND
Tier 1. Physiological needs – these are biological requirements for human survival, e.g. air, food, water, shelter, clothing, warmth, sex, sleep.
Tier 2. Safety needs – Once an individual’s physiological needs are satisfied, the needs for security and safety become salient. Protection from avarice and corruption.
Tier 3. Love and belongingness needs – after physiological and safety needs have been fulfilled, the third level of human needs is social and involves feelings of belongingness. The need for interpersonal relationships motivates behavior
Tier 4. Esteem needs are the fourth level in Maslow’s hierarchy – which Maslow classified into two categories:( i) esteem for oneself( dignity, achievement, mastery, independence) and( ii) the desire for reputation or respect from others( e.g ., status, prestige ).
Tier 5. Self-actualization needs are the highest level in Maslow’s hierarchy, and refer to the realization of a person’s potential, self-fulfillment, seeking personal growth and peak experiences. Maslow( 1943) describes this level as the desire to accomplish everything that one can, to become the most that one can be.
Tier 6. Transcendence – the very highest and most inclusive or holistic levels of human consciousness, behaving and relating, as objectives rather than entails, to oneself, to significant others, to human beings in general, to other species, to nature, and to the cosmos. AKA – To Help other’s Self-Actualize, beginning with Physiological Needs.
** How it works, in a nut shell :** If you don’t have kids, you’re a hero and don’t need to work much. If you have 1 child, you must work Part-Time for Maslow’s Ark. If you have 2 children, you must work Full-Time for Maslow’s Ark.
How it will work in detail( Beta v1. 3 ):
