To design a successful human society you need to know what kind of animal we are. Are we a cooperative animal or a competitive animal?"
The answer is YES. We all thrive on the prize of the competition and we all share bread with a stranger in varying degrees. Our cooperation build personal bonds and community purpose in shared goals. Competition for the Prize and exceptional Reward for exceptional Performance leads to increased effort and to the drive to find a better way of doing things. It also leads to Poverty & Excess.
If we can find a stable environment between the Poorest and Richest from the drive to attain the most of everything, we can find a safe foundation to build Freedom from Want and establish a stronger Democracy. If Poverty dominates our Economic System we will suffocate Democracy in favor of rule by the Oligarch of the 1 %ers.
