@@[[Personal Responsibility|NEXT: Personal Responsibility...]]@@
Deletions:
==Personal Responsibility==
1) If people are fortunate to be able to look after themselves then the state should withdraw from their lives. All welfare benefits (Child benefit, Tuition fee subsidies etc) should be taken away [[Social Freedom|(ref. Social Reform...)]]
1) Encourage self reliance: individuals don't want to be patronised and rely on the state to look after them: they want the pride that comes with independence and freedom.
1) Encourage peoples 'natural' desire to help one another and neighbors - helping and encouraging others makes people happy.
1) Wherever and whenever possible, people - not government - should take responsibility for their own lives and communities.
1) Move away from //government ought to do something// toward citizens and communities taking ownership themselves. (eg. Obesity where people need to return to the concept of self discipline to solve the issue)
1) Parents to have a life-long financial commitment to their children: absent parents (mostly fathers) who do not meet their responsibilities and commitments will be denied welfare.
==The Role of the State:==
1) End State Paternalism: Whether religious, monarchist, autocratic, ‘Burkean’ conservative, fascist or socialist, these ideologies are all based on the central premise that there is a ruling class that knows best. By definition, therefore, they always undermine the freedom, liberty and the responsibility of the individual.
1) That totalitarian authoritarian state (eg. communism and fascism) degrade and destroy the human spirit and free will.
1) Socialism and //Burkean// Conservatism are also systems that want to use the state as a means of controlling the individual and instructing people what they should or shouldn’t do. They are both ‘government knows best’ ideologies run by a small cabal of arrogant leaders (normally men!).
1) The state should be limited to the role of 'Regulator' and 'Enabler' of a truly democratic, open, free, happy, caring, capatalist society that allows ALL individuals to maximise their potential and fulfil their aspirations.
==Global Happiness Agenda==
1) Why are //Colombian//, //Algerian// & //Ethiopian// children so much happier than British Children? (ref. [[http://www.isciweb.org/_Uploads/dbsAttachedFiles/ChildrensWorlds2015-FullReport-Final.pdf|Children’s Worlds survey]]) Why are South Korean children so unhappy?
a) These countries have poor infrastructure, poor state provision, poor social services, limited access to health care, and low GDP per capita, but it seems that the extent of material comforts a child enjoys has little impact on their level of happiness?
a) A society that is rich enough not to worry about providing the basics for should be setting goals of personal happiness and fulfillment NOT purely economic growth.
a) Everyone should be happy and excited by life, not anxious, fearful, and stressed.
a) A new Utopian society will be created by encouraging everyone to fulfill their potential and achieve their dreams.
1) Family, Friends & Community:
a) Those with close relationships are happiest: families should not be encouraged to live apart (ie. Children expected to leave home). Independence does not mean isolation.
a) Contributing to the community and mucking in together leads to fulfillment: a key determinant of happiness is a strong sense of community and belonging, which can be provided through friends, colleagues or family.
a) //Altruism// is proven to help focus beyond ourselves and enable us to be more connected with the world around us.
1) Compassion:
a) “//If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."// (Dalai Lama).
a) Turn thoughts to others. Research consistently shows that acts of kindness and generosity have beneficial effects of people's well-being.
1) //Long Hours// culture to end:
a) Ruins family life, and limits the potential of women to maximise their potential in the workplace.
a) Discriminates against women.
a) Make Output not Input the measure of workplace success. Anyone who hangs around late in the office is obviously inefficient and therefore not worthy of promotion.
a) The //working late in the office// long hours culture is undermining the family and fails to allow individuals to enjoy the benefits of a free and affluent society.
a) Recruitment of individuals into services and business will look far more at ‘output’ rather than ‘input’, thus creating a more efficient, productive and happier workforce.
a) Executives who work long hours will be regarded as socially irresponsible, and questions will be asked about their efficiency and suitability.
a) The //3-Day Week// in the 1970's showed how productivity increased hugely when hours were restricted. Shorter working hours will naturally lead to a huge increase in productivity and enable all the social benefits of shorter working hours.
a) Businesses always naturally invest more to raise productivity when labour is tight.
a) Goal of a 4-day week.
1) Stop the //commuting// nightmare:
a) With modern communications, a majority of office jobs could be done from home.
a) More flexible commuting times is obvious. Not everyone needs to arrive at 9am: it is a throwback to an outdated mode of working on the factory floor when everything had to be synchronised.
a) It is estimated that stopping commuting in the UK would lead to a //productivity boost// of £12 billion.
1)End the //Fearful & Suspicious// Society==
a) Abolish the Tyranny of Fear: an unholy alliance of feminists, press, schools and government have combined to stir up a wholly unwarranted atmosphere of anxiety and suspicion, because it suits their agenda.
a) Women and children are being repressed and their rights eroded despite the evidence that statistically they are much safer when out on their own than at home or with people they know!
a) Exemplified by the completely irrational //stranger-danger// fixation by parents toward their children, the worst //child abuse// scandals around the world are perpetrated by friends, relations, institutions, celebrities and authority figures, NOT from unknown strangers.
a) We will get children back out exploring and playing on their own, while dealing with the biggest threat to their health: roads and traffic. Traffic free //Safe zones// will be created for children in all towns and cities.
a) We will create a world where everyone feels they can go and travel wherever they like and talk with whoever they like.
a) We will create a society at ease with itself that looks outwards and gets citizens to do what the human spirit does best: to ask how they can help and contribute to their community and the world.
1) An end to the media & cultural obsession with //Violence//
a) Books, TV, movies and games are hugely imbalanced towards violent imagery: there is an obsession with murder, serial killings, hit-men etc.
a) Crosses all levels: so-called //quality// literature, journalism, or drama is just as obsessed with violence.
a) However, while casual violence is shown to even young people, there is moral outrage and prurience about nudity and sexual imagery.
a) We will create a better society that is less inhibited about nudity and sexuality but more outraged by violent content across all age groups, but especially children.
a) The old hippy mantra of //make love not war// will be the starting point!
==
==Equality & the Distribution of Wealth:==
1) Equality of Opportunity not Outcome.
1) Develop a high skill, high wage, highly educated society where EVERYONE benefits and is able to access the means to fulfil their aspirations.
1) A Stakeholder, Shareholding democracy for ALL
a) Every employee should have a stake in the success of the business they work for.
a) Trade Unions should invest in share ownership of the companies they represent.
a) Trade Unions to buy shares in companies and elect Directors
a) Trade Unions to have a financial stake in the success of the businesses their members represent.
a) Employees should be shareholders in the companies they work for.
a) More Cooperatives
a) Individuals too will be encouraged to buy shares as a long term investment, and get involved in the running of the company - including scrutinising the directors.
a) All large investors such as pension and insurance funds will be told that they have to be ‘activist investors’, attending all AGMs, and scrutinise the board of directors.

a) Executives who work long hours will be regarded as socially irresponsible, and questions will be asked about their efficiency and suitability.
