The lack of stability and collective coherence of the Monetary-Market system is inherently driven by the competitive nature of its ideological structuring. Additionally it is a system that orients distribution in a very focused manner that prevents a vast majority of the human species from truly benefiting from the luxuries and technological fruits of civilization. These factors unequivocally objectively condemns the Monetary-Market system to the realm of failed models of history as a result of complete obsolescence. https://www.theodysseyonline.com/case-for-type-1-c...

Some distinct features of a Type One civilization would be things such as designing the model of civilization of ensure the self sufficiency and self sustainability. Completely phase out the possibility of civilization collapse, other than unforeseen natural events or extinction level cosmic events. This would require immense decentralization of the economy in order to convert to a 100% sustainable global energy structure; extremely manageable with available technologies in wind, solar, Hydroelectric, geothermal, etc. It would also require technology to decentralize and restructure our methods of food production to largely phase out agriculture, especially monoculture agricultural, in favor of technological productions like greenhouses and industrial greenhouses that operate on hydroponics, aeroponics, aquaponics, etc. Additionally, knowledge data banks, productive capabilities, water purification, systems of technological infrastructure, etc all have to be designed for each community to retain in the event of destabilization of the greater collective civilization. These technologies have to ensure the security of persons for each community; whether it is food for survival, or knowledge to ensure an open and free society that does not close itself off to the dictates of ignorance.

We must ontologically design the systems of civilization to ensure the evolutionary transformation of the civilization into more complex forms that can guarantee transformation of institutional shortcomings and unforeseen flaws and mistakes. If our institutions seize up with the distractions of culture and the superficialities of human drama; our civilization risks being exploited by the worst among us and the stability of the civilization itself is at risk of breakdown and collapse.

Organization and management of our entire Type Zero civilization history needs to be reassessed to transcend the clutter of arbitrary concepts pregnant in the Monetary-Market system. Taking note that foundation principle institutional structures are needed to collectivize institutions and groups of people rather than feudalistic ideological divisions and tribalistic mentalities. Such foundation principles can also be a system of checks and balances of powers for the civilization.

An example of a Type One civilization model can be seen with a structure of Direct Democracy, Representative Democracy, Meritocracy, and Technocracy. The Direct Democracy provides a horizontal structure that focuses power to every individual as a functioning mechanism of the civilization to avoid the concept of externalities that lead to populations being disregarded when policies are planned. Representative Democracy offers a means of every community, once self sustainability and sufficiency is achieved, to collectivize on the global stage. It also provides a means of ensuring democratic checks on all institutions to avoid exploitation and abuse. Meritocracy is a means of checking all institutions to justify their existence on the basis of their merited works; allowing for controlled vertical structures to provide the benefits of top-down orientation such as efficient production and leadership by those merited within the institution. Technocracy is the final foundation that fuses the vertical management of Meritocracy with the power distribution of the Direct and Representative Democratic systems by having those with the highest technical skills to be able to be effectively utilized in concert of the greater Type One model. This form of management and organization can allow for cohesive collectivism while ensuring individualism to the highest degree without the interference of institutions acting as transcended entities that act as independent forces of power and control beyond the Direct Democratic foundation. The objectively of the scientific minded basis of Technocratic leadership offers a rational check and balance of society that provides the information to guarantee a will informed Direct Democratic population.

Finally, and arguably most important to indicate Type One status, integrating a cooperative symbiotic relationship with the biosphere. This will require a rapid large scale project to rejuvenate the biospheres on all levels of the ecosystem. Given the restricting of civilization to complete renewable energy and the transition of production away from petrochemicals towards biological materials for production such as hemp. A Type One civilization would be capable of recycling and efficiently create products to such an extent that waste would be virtually eliminated and resource scarcity technologically abolished. It would therefore be a civilization that allows the rest of the planet's biology to enjoy the lands without displacement. Our returning of lands to natural habitats in order to provide life a chance to recoil from the 6th Great Extinction humanity is currently perpetuating with our actions.

A Type One civilization is an inevitability as long as civilization exists; the Monetary-Market System must be transcended if the human species is to survive. The objective failures and shortcomings of the model will not succeed in transitioning to Type One stature. A new system must assert itself if the human species is to survive and thrive as a greater complex organism. The task is new for the human species to face with legitimate potentiality of creating; but the dream of a global civilization is millennia years old. Utopian dreams of the past are objectively no longer abstract fantasies, but outlines for greater complexity in human life. Old problems will be solved, but with all evolutionary jumps there are new challenges that arise. The transition to a Type One civilization is not the end of time or end all moment that created Paradise on earth. It is taking the responsibility to retain the reality of evolution in face of civilization and societal development.

The Trump Presidency Is Over

Say hello to President Mike Pence.

Remember this date: August 21, 2018.

This was the day that two of President Donald Trump's most-important associates were convicted on eight counts each, and one directly implicated the president himself.

Paul Manafort was Trump's campaign chairman for a few months in 2016, but the charges brought against him don't necessarily implicate Trump. However, they are incredibly important considering was is one of the most influential people in the Trump campaign and picked Mike Pence to be the vice presidential candidate.

Manafort was convicted on five counts of tax fraud, two counts of bank fraud, and one count of failure to file a report of a foreign bank account. And it could have been even worse. The jury was only unanimous on eight counts while 10 counts were declared a mistrial.

Michael Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer, told a judge that Trump explicitly instructed him to break campaign-finance laws by paying two women not to publicly disclose the affairs they had with Trump. Those two women are believed to be Karen McDougal, a Playboy model, and Stormy Daniels, a pornstar. Trump had an affair with both while married to his current wife, Melania.

And then to no surprise, Fox News pundits spun this in the only way they know how. Sara Carter on Hannity said that the FBI and the Department of Justice are colluding as if it's some sort of deep-state conspiracy. Does someone want to tell her that the FBI is literally a part of the DOJ?

The Republican Party has for too long let Trump get away with criminal behavior, and it's long past time to, at the very least, remove Mr. Trump from office.

And then Trump should face the consequences for the crimes he has committed. Yes, Democrats have a role, too. But Republicans have control of both chambers of Congress, so they head every committee. They have the power to subpoena Trump's tax returns, which they have not. They have the power to subpoena key witnesses in their Russia investigations, which they have not.

For the better part of a year I have been asking myself what is the breaking point with Republicans and Trump. It does not seem like there is one, so for the time being we're stuck with a president who paid off two women he had an affair with in an attempt to influence a United States election.

Imagine for a second that any past president had done even a fraction of what Trump has.

Barack Obama got eviscerated for wearing a tan suit. If he had affairs with multiple women, then Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell would be preparing to burn him at the stake. If they won't, then Trump's enthusiastic would be more than happy to do so.

For too long we've been saying that Trump is heading down a road similar to Nixon, but it's evident now that we're way past that point. Donald Trump now has incriminating evidence against him to prove he's a criminal, and Special Counsel Robert Mueller is just getting started.

Will Trump soften the blow and resign in disgrace before impeachment like Nixon did? Knowing his fragile ego, there's honestly no telling what he'll do. But it's high time Trump leaves an office he never should have entered in the first place.

Stop Cussing Damn It!

Why society needs to be less aggressive in response to foul language.

Well shit, here we go again. In a world of constantly changing language in our everyday society, we need to take a step back on the censorship of words. Foul or vulgar language is frowned upon in most social settings, more specifically in public settings. Language has been created for us to communicate with one another. The fact that there is a whole group of words that are completely disregarded because they are "Cruel" or "Unnecessary" strike me as odd. Language and lexicon was created to allow each person to freely express themselves, their feelings and ideas, openly to everyone. Words like damn, shit, hell, and phrases like son of a bitch and fuck off are overly addressed as negative and foul.

As with any way of speaking, it is all about your deliverance of such language. Yes, is directing a "Fuck you" openly to someone in public a great idea, not really. But, in a general context, there shouldn't be a censorship on such phrases. If these types of words are not being used in derogatory ways, then I see no issue with them. Words help express us and our emotions. Foul language can emphasize our excitement, frustration, or anger with any situation. These words and phrases are just the natural evolution of our language. More so, there is a huge acceptance gap generation to generation.

This acceptance gap is huge from Generation X to Generation Y, or the Millennials, and even more of a gap with Generation Z. Things that offend Gen Y and are disgraced by Gen X don't always phase Gen Z individuals. Saying shit and damn have become natural filler words, sometimes used as verbs, most of the time as adjectives. It's actually quite interesting to hear people from different generations speak. Most people nowadays don't even register how much they swear because of how natural it is to them. I myself cuss a lot, a part of me in what society has labeled as a "bad habit".

Cussing, swearing, using foul language, or however you want to label it, is just something that has been integrated into our society more and more. Like anything, the time and place should always be taken into consideration before dropping words like bitch and fuck, but most of the time there isn't a bad time to speak with these choice words. Another thing is, if society accepted, and even mainstreamed, words that are frowned upon into natural conversation, they no longer would hold much power. If everyone "talked dirty" or used a "foul mouth" all the time, then no one would be cursing. We would all be simply speaking.

We as humans are constantly witnessing change. Our language has been changing and evolving since the very first grunt in history. We will continue to evolve our language and words that are viewed as "bad" now probably wont even be spoken by the end of the century. There will always be "bad words" and sayings that can be taken offense to, but like stated earlier, it's all about deliverance. I say who gives a shit, go ahead and cuss all the damn time, I don't give a fuck. Nothing in that sentence is rude or offensive. Is it the most professional sentence? No, of course it isn't, but nonetheless, sentences like that shouldn't be disapproved by society. We, as a society, should embrace the way our language and communication levels are evolving, and if we properly teach people how and when to use such "disgraceful phrases", there won't be an issue.
