"The American Earned Guaranteed Income"
There is no need for people to suffer because of fluctuations in the American economy. U.S. Treasury control of our currency (which itself is kept benign through the American people in "Direct Democracy") and public banking systems are all we need to remove the artificially induced fluctuations, that bring harm, in our economy. Surely "steady as she goes" is preferable to the more unpredictable stormy sea. Isn't replacing roughness with smoothness part of evolution?
We have the capability to build the following Social New Deal for all of us. It will provide a secure foundation, much in the spirit of our Social Security program, but for "most" of the working adults of our nation. But it will be a "two-way street"... this safety net will be earned by the people with good citizenship. It is our nation. We can do this. This is good work for the centralized government sector of our nation.
The What of It.
This financial safety net is earned by citizen individuals doing the following:
(1) Living without criminal activity. Criminal activity causes loss of this safety net for an individual. We do not need the disruption of crime in our nation. If one's personal bad habits cause those people to commit crimes, that is on them. They have made bad choices. They disqualify themselves from this great program. However, a "Second- and Third-Chance Program of Forgiveness to Rehabilitation Success" should be established to give those Individuals who succeed in gaining freedom from criminal behavior a way to gain eligibility for the earned guaranteed income.
(2) Continuing one's education for the duration of their lives. After successful completion of high school, one academic class per year, or teacher aid-volunteer service, will satisfy this important requirement. Education is the critical key to helping the people of America to gain the truths and wisdom that enable us to fulfill the greater aspects of the American vision. This is our duty as true citizens.
(3) Public Political Participative Service. Active, daily, participation in this nation's governmental processes. This participation is in the form of daily three-hour study sessions of some activity of local, state, or federal level bureau or legislative work being performed by our trusted and elected Advisory Representatives. Each citizen's fulfillment of this part of the agreement will be recorded daily in a computerized record at the "We The American People's Registry". ALL individuals, from the age of 16 on, will perform this sacred duty. Only at the termination of "normal" thinking brain function will this duty cease. The obligation of this part of the agreement is less when the citizen is fully employed. (40+ hours per week)...perhaps the time requirement being reduced to two or one hours per day, if the employed citizen needs and requests this reduction.
