Capitalism is going deeper into crisis and the current status quo (which Clinton seems to want to hold intact) that no replacing jobs are created and there seem to be no politicians pushing for planetary basic income funded from sharing the revenue streams generated by invested capital.
Due to human productivity the feasibly employable capital is growing constantly (unless we already dunn wreck the weather and will suffer from it) and this in conjunction by the scientific-technical advances, new service innovation and vast efficiency gains from self-service automation and full automation in ICT drives growth of service productivity. These should enable to pay planetary basic income.
Take away cab driver, bus driver, delivery truck driver, trucker and farm equipment operators’ jobs is what the automators are now proposing so you see that this decline of capitalism ain’t gonna be happy time for the middle-class and proles either.
I know the people who publicly advocate total despotic enforcement of maximal greed everywhere all the time by the invisible green hand (read: mostly republicans) fathomed by Adam Smith don’t want it totalitarian for those they consider their kin. Maybe peoples of the Earth need to rethink how they divide to kin/non-kin.
Call me commiemist, I’ll slice, dice and red red hot hot salsa salsa till everyone’s gotten something to eat and if there is more resources then I’ll crêpes with jam and whipped cream for dessert.
In ze Internets people have been watching this endeavour by the brave Scots very very carefully and keenly for a few years. If all goes well MaidSafe.net will make the current Internet the “Legacy Internet” rapidly by providing a shared digital commons wealth unseen before. https://forum.safenetwork.io is the community forum where you can catch the gist of how excited people are about MaidSafe Network and it’s significance to the future of population of Planet Earth.
Technically this endeavour is very bold and ambitious. The key people have donated all their patents, papers and code to the nonprofit MaidSafe Foundation though there is also a MaidSafe Ltd registered in Scotland to enable professional staff for the ongoing development and deployment effort. Funds were raised by selling off 10% of the ceiling of SafeCoin (cryptocash) amount (4-gigacoins) to an enthusiastic crowd. So you get the gist that these are highly creative individuals pushing the envelope onto the future.
Last week http://maidsafe.net/ published it’s first downloadables that allow people to discover the MaidSafe test network. Word of caution: The test network is wiped occasionally when required by devops.
MaidSafe Launcher 0.3.0 – This is for connecting to the network – The login consists of three things: a pin, a keyword and a password. I don’t fully know what is the purpose of the “keyword” and the test network is getting reset whenever necessary for development and the credentials stop working because the secret identity that allows you to access your public identity no longer is there in the testnet.
Now start the MaidSafe App and it asks the Launcher to ask you for privileges.
MaidSafe Demo App 0.0.1 that enables
Creation of Public ID that allows people to reach your network attached public services / sites and also
uploading public site / service to the network ( requires the DNS hacks to be viewable outisde of the Demo App )
uploading and downloading private directories and files
