Life Essentials Up-Date – Wednesday 28 June 2017

These matters need to be up-dated for quite a long number of weeks.

There is a huge “plague” of publications

both on  (i) millions of tons of paper and “newsprint”

expensively derived from the wanton “economicly-infinite” destruction
of Earthlife-essential forests and rainforests.

(ii)    in fiction, fantasy, deliberate disinformation,

(iii)   in obsolescent-academic-theories universities’ “teaching” books
to the absolute exclusion of key-advances in Knowledge and KNow-How,,


(iv)  in sensational-scaremongering and consumer-enslavement
through the electronic-and-TV media,
selling us  ‘comfort’, ‘plenty’, and ‘security’
in exchange for cash
and of course subservient-allegiance.

How could any permanently low-income individual find their own essential “lifesupports”,
including as well as “this week’s grocery shopping”, and a range of ‘humanising’ lifespan essentials
find defenses against both overt and covertly-subliminal mind-and-purse manipulative-control
by cowardly remotely-bunkered-away mere-luxury-mollycoddled profiteering ‘slavedrivers’
and their captive  ‘armies’ of muscle-and-machineguns-domineering mercenaries ?

When AgeUK’s legal-adviser-to-the-public was asked by two disabled and permanently low-income-no assets elderly loyal British people,
“We need some legal-standing and support, for building our own holistic-health
separately from the NHS illnesses and hospitals and suchlike medical, chemists, and ‘alternative-therapists’, please” –

the official legal and constitutional response was
“Under English Law there is no such legal-entity as “Health”;
therefore we can not help you legalise your own holistic-health-building;
but we could take your case to the necessary highest-courts,
costing maybe £2 million (if you could pay us that up-front).

But the case would still probably be lost;
you see, it would involve big changes, all the way up to the United Nations and back”.


How should these and similar Matters be honestly clarified, for all of us ?


Up-Date 2230 Monday 26 June 2017
Readers might find the “Human Needs Lists” my Max-Neef piblished by Wikipedia, informative :-


Max-Neef classifies the fundamental human needs as:

  • subsistence
  • protection
  • affection
  • understanding
  • participation
  • leisure
  • creation
  • identity
  • freedom

Needs are also defined according to the existential categories of being, having, doing and interacting, and from these dimensions, a 36 cell matrix is developed [5]

Need Being (qualities) Having (things) Doing (actions) Interacting (settings)
Subsistence physical and mental health food, shelter, work feed, clothe, rest, work living environment, social setting
Protection care, adaptability, autonomy social security, health systems, work co-operate, plan, take care of, help social environment, dwelling
Affection respect, sense of humour, generosity, sensuality friendships, family, relationships with nature share, take care of, express emotions privacy, intimate spaces of togetherness
Understanding critical capacity, curiosity, intuition literature, teachers, policies, educational analyse, study, meditate, investigate, schools, families, universities, communities,
Participation receptiveness, dedication, sense of humour responsibilities, duties, work, rights cooperate, dissent, express opinions associations, parties, churches, neighbourhoods
Leisure imagination, tranquility, spontaneity games, parties, peace of mind day-dream, remember, relax, have fun landscapes, intimate spaces, places to be alone
Creation imagination, boldness, inventiveness, curiosity abilities, skills, work, techniques invent, build, design, work, compose, interpret spaces for expression, workshops, audiences
Identity sense of belonging, self-esteem, consistency language, religions, work, customs, values, norms get to know oneself, grow, commit oneself places one belongs to, everyday settings
Freedom autonomy, passion, self-esteem, open-mindedness equal rights dissent, choose, run risks, develop awareness anywhere

The BElNG column registers attributes, personal or collective, that are expressed as nouns. The column of HAVING registers institutions, norms, mechanisms, tools (not in a material sense), laws, etc. that can be expressed in one or more words. The DOlNG column registers actions, personal or collective, that can be expressed as verbs. The column of INTERACTING registers locations and milieus (as times and spaces). [6]
