My life is run by many philosophies! Among these, there are two philosophies I would like to share with you.
- One is my economic philosophy. What should be for-profit and
- The other is a philosophy of respect for human life. What should not be for-profit.
Is not because I think education and healthcare should be free, that I do not know the rules of economics and capital! I studied economics, administration, and marketing when I was in college and later economy when I coursed the University of Communications/Advertising/Journalism. The moment you get up in the morning, you are already expending money with your first cup of coffee and that is a reality of everyone’s life.
But then, why do I think that Education should be free when some people make us believe that there is nothing free in the world?
This is a question of respect! We are humans and not objects! I cannot compare you with a chair, a car or a TV or whatever is out there that is an object. We are not objects, we are humans! Treating humans as objects and monetizing in their first needs is the ultimate disrespect one can do towards any human being.
After your physiologic necessities, health care is your first necessity and education is your second necessity and right. There are things in life that must not be commercialized, among these, are healthcare and education.
Some capitalists seek to profit from everything and they were the ones that convince you that you have to pay for education and healthcare when you already paid that with your taxes. That is why governments were created to begin with it.
Governments exist to balance these psychotic power grabs from capitalism. Yes, I said psychotic because (some) capitalists do have a mental and a behavior issue. They do not know how to stop. Think about someone that is addicted to heavy drugs. This is the profile of some capitalists. They are addicted to profit. They see the entire world as their playground for profit.
Some capitalists do have the capacity to see many things. They know that some of the things they’re doing is wrong but they do not want to recognize what they are doing is wrong. Who wants to recognize they are wrong when they are filling their pockets with money. Right or wrong, I do not care, I am making money right? Wrong!
That is the reason governments were created. They suppose to balance these things. But many unscrupulous governments intentionally forgot their main role and their main role is to not let capitalists cross the lines of insanity over profit.
The main two reasons governments are corrupt today are;
- You accept everything they do.
- They abuse of their power because some capitalists have taken over the government and corrupted the laws.
You, yes, You! You are not asking for anything free. You already paid taxes towards education and healthcare and that must be given to you unrestrictedly. However, the money that was supposed to be invested in Education and Healthcare have been diverted to something else.
I do not want money from you for the things I teach. It is the role of government to pay teachers and facilitators so we can freely share our knowledge and teach. Where are the results? It is here, online. If you learn a profession and start making money from the things we teach, you become a participant of a local and world economy. Some of us know well that some capitalists are mediocre by birth. But governments should not follow their mediocracy.
An economy grows by having more people participating in its engine. The ultimate truth of economics is that people that have money, expend money and that is good for the economy.
When one restricts people access to education and health care because of money (capital), they are killing their lives and transforming them in “slaves of the system”. They’re making them dependent on one segment of our society. That, on the other hand, creates more criminality and mental health than anything in the world combined. Frustrated people are not happy and when they are not happy, they do not produce well. As a consequence, the economy does not flourish but it stagnates.
That is the biggest lesson in economics you will ever have in your life. We must respect people, we must take care of people first, we must respect their lives. We must respect our Planet that gives and gives without asking for nothing in return.
Remember this, you are a human, not a product.
