Copiosis: Soon More Popular Than Obamacare

Copiosis replaces Obamacare

Copiosis offers, among other necessities, healthcare to everyone at no cost. Those providing healthcare get rich. The Copiosis founder explains how that happens below. So it is possible to provide healthcare and all other necessities at no cost to anyone. Capitalism can’t do that though.

November’s federal election results put the kibosh on republican plans to kill Obamacare. Despite best attempts from the right, Obamacare today is more popular than ever. Trump relinquishing the White House means the popular federal program is here to say.

That means, like it or not America, America is closer to socialism.

Those who don’t like that trend should look at Copiosis. Yes, it ends capitalism, but it also ends socialism just as decidedly. Communism too!

There’s so much to like about Copiosis if you give it a serious look. But most don’t do that at first blush.

But we don’t need “most”

Good news is, we don’t need “most people” liking Copiosis now. They will in the future though. Like everything people like today, Copiosis is following the tried and true product adoption curve. In the beginning that means a small percentage of people people find out and get excited about Copiosis.

Eventually, we reach the majority of the population, who by then will find Copiosis compelling. When they do, Copiosis will become our collective, de facto economic system. Planetary economic disruption baby!

The technology, or product adoption curve. The heart of our transition strategy. We know how to implement this strategy and we’re already producing indicators of success.

Years ago I talked with a convicted felon and successful businessperson (a construction contractor) who said during an interview that “Obamacare killed my company”. It’s interesting when I hear that coming from people who believe in free enterprise, free markets and such. “Obamacare” didn’t kill this guy’s company. His unwillingness to go out and grow his company did. Any entrepreneur worth his salt realizes challenges are there to be overcome, not succumbed to. So to say a government program killed your entrepreneurial pursuit is, in my opinion as an entrepreneur, an admission of personal failure. Not an indictment of the government program.

Pull yourself up by your bootstraps for god’s sake! LOL. (sarcasm and irony intended)

Copiosis ends capitalism

There are so many fundamental challenges facing humanity since I originally wrote about Obamacare and its popularity. Far more companies are dying today and it’s not because of Obamacare. It’s because capitalism can’t work if people don’t. And COVID-19 has kept people at home, thereby revealing how much humans really are slaves to the capitalist system.

I think as much as people love Obamacare, they’re doing to adore Copiosis once they really understand what it offers. Not only does it offer absolutely ALL healthcare to everyone at no cost at all, it also provides every other necessity, and it doesn’t depend one bit on anyone working against their will.

Copiosis is happening. Many don’t see it yet. They will, in time though. And we have all the time in the world because Copiosis is the idea whose time is here.

Why I Welcome The Automated Economy

Have no fear

It looks like basic income is a foregone conclusion as automation makes working increasingly irrelevant.

Whether it comes sooner or later, there will be an automated economy in which smart machines are doing so many jobs people are left with more leisure time, and governments are left with less tax revenue.  

Whether this is a problem or not depends on how bold we are today.  Basic income will give humanity time to grow a pair. 😂

I welcome the automated economy no matter when it comes.  If we take prudent moves in the near future, the majority of people will feel the same way.  Since most people on the planet dislike their jobs, the automated economy can be a boon.  But first we need a collective attitude adjustment.

Work feels like a life-sustaining, engaging activity that also rewards people with income used for leisure activities, necessity satisfaction and keeping the economy going.

Work that doesn’t feel that way

A fortunate few do work that feels like play.  It’s their passion, their calling, fun, etc.  This 80s music video perfectly captures how jealous others feel about people whose work feels like fun.

People sometimes confuse these two, thinking any kind of socially constructive work is life-sustaining and engaging.  That’s a problem.  Most people work because they need to, not because it’s fun.

People love things they find engaging and worthy.  Rarely do such people consider this activity work, and they exert a lot of their best energy pursuing such activities.  I’m referring to hobbies, pastimes, vocations, and passions such as child-rearing, home remodeling, and creating art.

Time spent in these activities is far more engaged and creative, and higher-quality than time put in at “work”.  Imagine what life might be like if we all did things we loved, instead what we must to earn a living.

Why can’t we pay people for things they love to do instead of things they feel they need to?

That’s the opportunity I see with the automation economy.  Automation will not eliminate work born of human passion and enthusiasm, a desire for self-development or expression; of connecting with others; of sharing creativity; of exploration and finding joy and fulfillment.  Sure, we’ve invented computers that can create art, but human-expressed art in all forms is not likely to go away until robots actually become human.  Even then, human art and post-human art will still have their places.

Art in human terms can be all kinds of things, not just painting, sculpture, music, or performance.  It can be creating solutions to human or ecological problems, it can be exploring space, creating new, satisfying, and creative ways to house more people on the planet.  It can be finding solutions to ecosystem restoration and preservation.  Art has many forms the definition of which is often up to the creator.  As an artist myself, I know this.

As mentioned before, we can prepare for the automation economy, which if done will bless humanity.  That requires preparing humanity itself. Maybe basic income moves us in that direction.

What a blessed humanity looks like

We could offer every human being on the planet all the food needed to thrive.  I’m not talking about caviar, foie gras, and Kobe beef, but basic, healthful food produced sustainably and distributed widely.  Even with those exotic foods excluded there’s still plenty food on the planet to eliminate hunger and feed everyone.

We can also offer housing to everyone without them paying for it.  Again, I’m not talking about mansions, luxury condos, or those cute tiny houses, and definitely not subsidized government slums, but basic housing that serves to shelter a person while providing a modicum of dignity, safety, and comfort.

We’re at the point now where we can provide everyone with basic housing that is lovely, well-appointed, functional, and durable, at no cost to them.  If people want a custom home, they can still pay for those, but there’s no reason why humanity should tolerate any homelessness, nor constrain an innovator because she has to earn a living to pay a mortgage or rent.

We can offer basic functional clothing to everyone, thereby eliminating the need to spend our money on clothes.  If you want that Armani suit, you’ll still have to buy that.  But it is an easy matter today to give everyone all the basic clothing they need to be protected from the elements and work hazards.

There’s no reason today why anyone should have to pay for any of the education they receive.  We have the ability today to provide everyone with all the education they desire, sparking a revolution in human capacity through the one thing everyone recognizes is key to success—a great education.  Basic income will not provide that. But we can see already organizations providing these things at no cost to their consumers.

Then there’s healthcare.  No human being on this planet can survive, let alone thrive, without healthcare and there’s no reason anymore to continue charging people for this basic need.  As with all the other four things above, which in Copiosis we call “necessities”, we can today provide all the healthcare people need while not charging them a dime.

Fear is the mind-killer

No, that doesn’t mean creating the socialized care right-wingers fear, which is supported through super-high taxes and comes with long lines and poor service.  It means care that is fantastic, accessible, proactive, and no cost.

We are capable of doing all of this today.  There is no need to wait for the automated economy to force us into some kind of catastrophic shift.  All we need to do as a civilization is act like the advanced civilization we are.

I firmly believe this.  That is why I founded and am creating exactly what I describe in this piece through Copiosis.  With untold numbers of people around the world watching our progress, and with a moderate number of talented individuals helping me, we are creating a reality in which all I’m describing here is a real. We’re in the mid stages now, and results are promising.

Basic income is a nice idea opening the door to the future. But it’s not the future.  The automated economy we want without the disruption scenarios people fear, is on the way, through the door UBI opens.

Through Copiosis people provide more than our current system ever can, while eliminating most of our current troubles.  Copiosis offers a road map to and through a full-blown automation economy.  It leaves humanity freed up and empowered for the destiny they were born to—lives of freedom, joy, and prosperity.

Insurance is a relic

ABOLISH INSURANCE.001

Insurance is available to provide protection against all sorts of unpleasant contingencies.  If one has property one can obtain insurance against it being damaged, destroyed, or stolen.  One can get insurance to defray the costs of illness or even death.  The forms of insurance that are available are many and varied, and much of modern business would be difficult to carry on if it were not for insurance.  It is, of course, a feature of traditional economies.

In a Copiosis economy, there is no insurance at all, of any kind, for anybody.  This is because money cannot be transferred from one account to another.  Money comes into existence in one’s account when earned and ceases to exist when spent.  Therefore, one could not pay premiums and one could not collect money from a policy.  Does this mean that people are defenseless against disaster?  How does one mitigate the consequences of unfortunate events?

Let’s consider life insurance first.  One buys life insurance in a traditional economy in order to cover the cost of a funeral and provide for one’s dependents in the event of one’s death.  In a Copiosis economy, one’s dependents will be just fine so long as material possessions are concerned.  They will be given food, clothing, shelter/housing, medical care, and education without having to pay for it because those who gave them these things would be paid for doing so, whoever they are.  Though no one is obligated to give Necessities to them, they will be paid for such giving, which is enough to see that your kin will have the Necessities.  Also, if one’s dependents have earned money, they will not need to spend any of that money if they don’t want to.  Therefore one doesn’t need life insurance.

What about medical insurance?  People will still get sick and become injured, but medical care is one of the necessities of life, and those who practice medicine will be paid for doing so.  Thus, one needs no medical insurance either:  Medical treatment doesn’t cost money in a Copiosis economy.

But what about insuring property?  If the property is a necessity, one gets it without paying.  If the property is Capital Goods, one gets those without paying also.  All that’s left is luxuries.  If one doesn’t want one’s luxuries destroyed one will have to be careful with them.  Protecting one’s luxuries is up to the owner, of course, but providing places of safekeeping for valuable objects is a beneficial service for those who own very valuable luxuries, so one would be paid for providing such places.  Therefore, the property owner can store that jewelry or that painting in a vault and pay a rental.  Fortunately, theft in a Copiosis economy is quite rare so that is of small concern.  Finally, the loss of luxuries, though regrettable, is hardly going to damage the economy or result in harm to others.

Someone recently asked a question which merited clarifying some things.

When one buys a luxury item, that transaction doesn’t happen like it does today. Today, when someone buys something, the price they pay covers the expense (the cost) of things used to make that thing, including the cost of labor. But in Copiosis, NBR doesn’t pay for costs because there are no costs. Giving up NBR for a luxury “unlocks” the opportunity to own the luxury in question. Inputs contributing to creating that luxury get provided by those who own them at no cost to anyone.

Once someone consumes that luxury, everyone who provided materials or supplies that went into making the luxury starts getting NBR. Those NBR payments continue so long as the person consuming the luxury keeps benefiting from it.

If a luxury house, for example burns down, people can’t live in it, meaning, the house isn’t being consumed and producing benefit. So all the people who contributed to the house construction stop getting NBR for that house. Once rebuilt and occupied, NBR flows resume, presuming of course the same people who offered supplies offered more supplies for the rebuild.

What about the various kinds of business insurance?  Those policies are insurance against damage or destruction of Capital Goods such as buildings, equipment, or products.  Again, we note that NBR doesn’t buy such things, so there would be no point in a policy which gave a person money for their loss.

The absence of insurance eliminates an entire category of the traditional economy’s crime from Copiosis economies.  The resources which are devoted to the insurance industry in a traditional economy are devoted to production in a Copiosis economy.  Much more attention is paid to preventing loss rather than to recovering money to compensate for loss.  The lawsuits which today are a byproduct of insurance are completely absent in a Copiosis economy.

Why socioeconomic problems are both burden and solution

Prediction.001“The soil, it appears, is suited to the seed, for it has sent its reticle downward, and it may now send its shoot upward also with confidence. Why has man rooted himself thus firmly in the earth, but that he may rise in the same proportion into the heavens above? For the nobler plants are valued for the fruit they bear at last in the air and light, far from ground….”

– Walden, Henry David Thoreau

 

I wrote before that some believe humanity’s end is here.

A different perspective: Darkest yet it gets ‘fore dawn.

Humanity may fizzle under weight of it’s self-inflicted calamities. What I find is how spectacularly inadequate we are at prediction: The cosmos and its purpose are far beyond human comprehension. So too human ingenuity.

That means my guess is as good as anyone else’s. Including the doomsayers.  What puts the odds in favor of this post is I’m taking action – as are others – to create a better reality than we have. Until there are too few for viable human reproduction, the task continues.

Escape Velocity

Perhaps pernicious problems are purposeful. Example: our space rockets require tremendous amounts of fuel to escape Earth’s pull. Heavy fuel. Yet our rockets carry that weight, plus the fuel tanks, to achieve Escape Velocity. Beyond Earth’s gravity, excess fuel burned, fuel stages ejected, the ship is free. Fuel is both burden and solution.

Pernicious problems orient humanity to important things. Intractable problems beget unreasonable solutions. Our best and brightest are not on Wall Street, in hedge funds, on trading floors. Those are the duped. The sheep. Our real bright stars are focused on goals that will “shoot [humanity] upward with confidence”. Rooting ourselves firmly in the earth through problems we create, we soon “may rise in the same proportion to the heavens”.

Achieving this escape velocity may be Challenge Number One. But spaceship humanity is fueled and ready.

Humanity isn’t over. We’re just getting started.
