Our quick historical instance of “Sustainability versus Sustainworthiness is
“If Hitler’s Third Reich had won World War 2, it would have been “sustainable” for more than a thousand years ;
the “free” world found it to be not sustain-worthy
Similarly,but much more insidiously and non-sustain-worthily is “Individual Capitalism” –
a very appropriate Issue today (Sunday) in the Church-of-England
because of the parable of the “The worker is worthy of his hire”
The first shall be last and the last first”.
The vineyard owner and employer was ‘jumping-in’ – “agenda-cornering” –
with a ‘traditional’ “Method I one-way winning” by stating
(“) I can do what I like with my property,and with my money .-..
and if I choose to pay those who worked only the last hour of the day the same as those who worked all day since morning,
i.e. ‘one-day’s living-subsistence’
then that is in order (“)
Once again we have the “one-human-living” essentiality versus the “ownership-of-the-Earth and of the Common-Purse” “political-predicament” –
Percentages are often vital to be included in our thinking, planning, and budgetging – %%% –
but are too often and habitually “excluded” from our ‘reasoning’.
Take a sub-issue today:
Two adjacent homes, identical, same rent, each with one tenant –
same food, water, clothing, shelter needs
same ‘everything’ –
except when one occupant is a ‘lowest-incomer’ on £300 per week
whilst the other is a psychiatrist on £3,000 per week.=
renter A has £0.00 left over after paying rent
[and paying all other living expenses except, in both cases, the work-related costs – which have to be met by the Employer] -.
so renter B (the psychiatrist) is drawing/being-‘given’ 10 human-livings)
and so has £2700 left over “free-in-pocket”.
2027 ========== chores time again 2030 ==============
The inseparable fact that the psychiatrist thinks s/he is “ten human beings”
thereby being ‘stuck’ 9-times deluded
is another hugely serious “mental” issue, too.
