Meet the doughnut: the new economic model that could help end inequality

The problem is that the core of the dilemma is not external to the human mindset, having to do with economic models. In other words economic models will inevitably reflect the mindset.

The most fundament base of the human mindset, its most primitive component is ego. Ego’s primary function is survival. This is acomplished by seeking advantage of self and offspring by any means possible, which in turn means that dominance within the species must always will out.

Therefore, unless we decide somehow to rewire the basic human mindset, there will never be a relatively even distribution of resources and wealth. Moreover, the current mindset is fully in compliance with the ultimate law of the universal, probability balance, a law requiring that at some point in time creative good must always be offset by destructive bad.

And since the final offset of humanity and its creations comes in the form of ten of thousand of nuclear weapons on hair trigger settings, a division of wealth is hardly more than an academic exercise as we await the inevitable final offset of humanity. But it is interesting to contemplate.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
