We need New Politicians

Wealthier people produce more carbon pollution — even the “green” ones - Vox

We Need Politicians who will Take back Control of the Government and Capital Flows Fairness With Better Taxation and Corrected Wealth Management Policy.

From the great Urantia Book, we receive guidance on the abuse of Capital by its custodians. It is critical for us to understand that those who are holding the capital in their names are custodians of it, and no more. They have a set of responsibilities which need to be met when in that position. We know that on Earth, we have urgent need of capital for many peoples, while other people enjoy a glut of capital and this is because the wealthy have been psychotic or lazy with understanding how their selfishness and greed affect others. Climate change is a major and decisive example. As the wealthy create excessive carbon footprints, through lifestyles and wealth expansion projects, they are killing others while they also kill themselves. They need to awaken to this as a group.

It is a political and spiritual mistake to allow the freedom to pursue unadjusted wealth disparity because it has brought physical tragedy. We must find a way to adjust this disparity, while the present custodians of the excess wealth are hoarding it. Idle, hoarded wealth must be deemed as such and confiscated based on criteria which protect the public’s interests in basic need areas. If that is achieved, the wealth will be legitimate.

Note below the quoted discussion of the concern around social and religious freedom and capital management.

“Social And Religious Freedom

If men would maintain their freedom, they must, after having chosen their charter of liberty, provide for its wise, intelligent, and fearless interpretation to the end that there may be prevented:

  1. Usurpation of unwarranted power by either the executive or legislative branches.
  2. Machinations of ignorant and superstitious agitators.
  3. Retardation of scientific progress.
  4. Stalemate of the dominance of mediocrity.
  5. Domination by vicious minorities.
  6. Control by ambitious and clever would-be dictators.
  7. Disastrous disruption of panics.
  8. Exploitation by the unscrupulous.
  9. Taxation enslavement of the citizenry by the state.
  10. Failure of social and economic fairness.
  11. Union of church and state.
  12. Loss of personal liberty. ~ The Urantia Book(70:12.6)

Though capital has tended to liberate man, it has greatly complicated his social and industrial organization. The abuse of capital by unfair capitalists does not destroy the fact that it is the basis of modern industrial society. Through capital and invention the present generation enjoys a higher degree of freedom than any that ever preceded it on earth. This is placed on record as a fact and not in justification of the many misuses of capital by thoughtless and selfish custodians. ~ The Urantia Book(69:5.15)

Idle capital, in support of the few, rather than the many, is an extreme abuse that takes away freedom. The evidence of this is the many underfunded programs to help the disadvantaged and displaced, the war torn,. Taxation policy has been usurped by bribery of politicians. The governments, through politicians, must bravely extend their reach into the lives of the deceptive and deceived wealthy classes that have spitefully used the accounting professions in a massive institutionalized bribery culture. Tax laws must intervene in this corruption, and change this culture completely.

Greedy and irresponsible corporation have lied to the population and fooled governments, which they bribe one politician at a time. They passed their pollution cleanup costs onto the taxpayer and sought and obtained subsidies from the same taxpayer all for the sake of profit. This is double corruption is why it is coined corporate fascism, as they have control of the government by avoiding taxes and extorting subsidies.

A new politician is needed. One that cannot be corrupted by special interests. One whose interests really and truly revolve around the public that elected them. They must be prepared to govern the wealthy with a firm hand, and provide a sound vision of wealth distribution with the wealth of the wealthy included prominently in the planned new capital flows. The honour system of philanthropy is a failure, and the new politician must openly admit this.

New politicians must be able to recognize that the fruits of Corporate and personal greed are climate change and fallen or missing infrastructure and social safety nets on a physically dynamic and sensitive planet. They must be able to speak to this in legislatures, and effect the policy changes necessary to get these sectors to carry their weight in society correctly. We have not caused enough good politicians, thinking along these lines, to get seated in our legislatures, and it is already past the time we did this. All of the tax breaks we gave to corporations and the wealthy have resulted in our collective peril with climate change, and lost infrastructure and safety nets at their behest and it must be fully reversed as we now know they are liable for their evasions of responsibility and must retroactively pay their fair share. Finally, politicians fell asleep at the wheel of the government based pollution regulation system and allowed too much pollution into the environment, which has greatly exacerbated climate change and human health.
