Politics And The Welfare Or Abusive State

Politics And The Welfare Or Abusive State; Fiction, My Original

Politics and public assistance

Politics, according to some politicians, should not participate in any kind of welfare activity. It should, instead, stop the very rich from paying any portion of the tax burden they are carrying.

These politicians therefore aim to gradually have the lower classes pay all of the taxes collected. All this time they are trying to win the votes of the lower classes. The lower classes we all know, cast the majority of election votes.

These politicians do all of this while they try to close down such services as Medicare,  Medicaid and Planned Parenthood. These are the very social services on which their grassroots supporters happen to depend.

Politics and the other state

Many politicians who long to free society of all aspects of the welfare state, want to create the other state. This other state, the abusive state, is the utopian dream of these politicians.

In this abusive state, these politicians, their relatives, their very wealthy tax-exempted friends and business associates exist above the law. This group is free of all moral and financial accountability. Their businesses, likewise, are free of all moral, financial and environmental regulation.

Moral, social and economic justice do not exist for this type of politician. Here too, everyone else is on their own or at the mercy of the all powerful political and corporate masters. Many will need these masters’ personal patronage, from cradle to grave.

History speaks and beckons against the abusive state, but will these political and corporate masters respond as they should?

Rebuilding Offers A Great Opportunity

Rebuilding Offers A Great OpportunityHello, can you spare a moment?

Rebuilding, improvement opportunities

Rebuilding a country after the destruction of a hurricane is hard work. It is also very costly. Once, however, government secures funding for the reconstruction effort, it can begin. Such effort also can help improve the economy and infrastructure of the country affected. This is so even as our hearts go out to those who suffered injury or lost relatives or property.

This increased construction effort generates needed economic activity in the affected country. It increases employment in the construction sector and other sectors, and increases spending power of workers generally. It also allows us the opportunity to improve or replace faulty or outdated infrastructural and other systems.

People of the countries affected should seek to benefit from this reconstruction opportunity in every way possible.

Diary Keeping, Its Types And Their Advantages

Diary keeping, the practice, its types and their advantages.

Diary keeping as a practice allows us to be able to say a few things about it. Diary keeping is a good practice for any person and, additionally for some of us, it is a necessity. Those of us who record or intend to start recording entries in a diary, irrespective of the frequency of those entries, might need to ensure that our present or intended method of diary keeping is optimal for our needs.

We then can consider changing our method or intended method of diary keeping if we find that it does not meet our requirements.

Many people who do not keep a diary now, may have been interested in keeping and attempted to keep a manual diary in the past. Many such persons might have given up the practice out of concern that the diary might fall into the wrong hands and to their detriment.

The lives of some of those persons, over time, may have changed, giving them more reason to want to keep a diary now. There may be a greater need now, more than was the case in the past, to record their thoughts, speech and actions.

About diary keeping here’s a reminder, that we can keep several diaries simultaneously, with each diary being used to record activity of a different type. For example, we can keep a different diary each for: personal activity; work activity; individual hobbyist activities (with each hobby having its own diary) etc. This helps to simplify information retrieval and quicken up the process.

The manual form of diary keeping appeals to the person who prefers to write and edit their entries by hand. The risk of ones diary falling into the wrong hands is therefore one that such persons might have to endure. Much of what has been said so far has been about manual diary keeping.

What about diary keeping using digital technology? The digital diary offers a much smaller degree of risk of falling into the wrong hands than the manual or hand written diary. It also is not accessible by hackers if it is kept offline.

 The digital diary is totally accessible (for adding entries, reading, editing etc.) using any computer, server, gadget, external drive and location that are connected to the internet. It can be shared across multiple: computers, servers, gadgets and external drives using an Ethernet connection. It can be located on any computer, server, gadget, external drive or the cloud, in any location, and can be online or offline.

It thus is a relatively safe and very convenient form of diary; and it should appeal to those who are interested in the digital world and information technology.

There are, then, three options for diary keeping based on the media used and the corresponding method of adding entries to the diary. They are, the manual diary, the digital diary and the double diary (using both manual and digital diaries). Diary keepers and prospective diary keepers can decide on their diary keeping preferences, and then choose the type of diary that meets their requirements.
