The bureaucracies that organize the world’s commerce, government, religion, and education are primarily concerned with their own wealth and power. While they do need money and influence to succeed in their chosen missions, they have always ethically failed. The one hundred percent fail rate is not surprising, as this failure has repeated itself thousands of times over thousands of years. It drives history’s repeating cycle, as it generates poverty, war, and injustice.
What is surprising, however, is that over the course of these centuries so few have cooperated to reverse this dehumanizing trend, and those who have tried have received so little support. While humanity is prone to selfish endeavors that feed this cycle, the cause is the flawed design of bureaucratic architecture that was not designed for the load with which it is encumbered. As each bureaucracy exceeded its load limit, its focus turned its mission from its product to the byproduct, its own importance.
Overloaded bureaucracies are incapable of operating kindly. The people who are the cells from which it is made provide its conscience, but those people are ejected from the bureaucratic body if what they determine is kindness costs bureaucratic power. Their individual futures are dependent on shutting off their individual ethics, their moral judgement.
The clear purpose of institutional power is to spread competence and kindness. Institutional health is supported for the purpose of efficiency and justice. While the institution serves humanity, humanity serves it. People peddle the machine. If it stops spreading kindness, they should stop peddling, but bureaucratic brakes haven’t been invented. We need institutional brakes because not even one person should receive institutional injury, inside or outside of the institution.
Monetary systems have always been run by overloaded governmental bureaucracies. Money is what people receive for catering to the rich. The more catering the more money they get. At the same time, those who have limited access to money are unjustly impoverished for no other reason than they are unable to deliver anything to the rich that the rich want, or that they would pay for.
A clear institutional source of money is what is needed. Money that can only be earned by the kind application of resources to justly, and adequately fill the needs of humanity, now and in generations to come.
Bureaucratic money sources can be clarified by changing the financial accounting system to KC accounting. Financial accounting only protects the rich. It fails to protect the moral seed necessary for economic function. KC accounting makes economic planning predictable and credible.
There is no need to accept the poverty, the injustice, and the war that plagues the world. Each of us was genetically blessed with the knowledge of what is kind. It is with kindness that we each must make the effort to apply the knowledge, and resources available to us, toward our human betterment. We have this responsibility and opportunity, whether we are inside or outside of our institutions. We can do better, and together we will succeed at eradicating poverty and injustice, propelling a more competent humanity to a happier place.
