Disneyland vacation reflection: Anytown, USA can have such beautiful landscape

Public landscaping is a public service, and among the choices to upgrade after fully updating and funding schools, roads, and other vital hard and soft infrastructure. Optimal infrastructure is ours in three steps:

  1. the 99% make “emperor has no clothes” obvious factual assertions of obvious crimes centering in money and war by our 1% oligarchs in banking/finance, government, and corporate media for lying about these crimes,
  2. the 99% demand lawful arrests for these crimes; for example, war law forbids armed attack unless first attacked by another nation’s government. This prima facie evidence makes current US armed attacks in 6 countries now, War Crimes.
  3. We enact obvious reforms in money, credit, and CAFR accounting.

Monetary reform creates debt-free money for the direct payment of public goods and services. This causes three game-changing benefits: full-employment as government becomes the employer of last resort for infrastructure investment, optimal infrastructure, and falling overall prices because infrastructure historically always produces more economic output than cost of its inputs.

It’s not hard to “imagineer” into the future that public beauty in architecture and landscaping will be on the public agenda once we’re free from the 1%’s psychopathic agenda of death, debt, and lies. Indeed, the three reforms I list will quickly be overtaken by resource-based economics or something better, which will open unimaginable creativity for public beauty and function.

I just spent four days in Disneyland with friends and family. I marveled at the beauty of plants, flowers, and water (video here). That small community could be Anytown, USA when people have economic freedom with free time to imagine (with ~50,000 visitors/day, Disneyland requires far more upkeep, of course). This is not a comment about Disney or Disneyland except for their landscaping. I have pointed to Pixar as providing excellent allegory of our 99% and 1% relationship.

Because we have the people, resources, and desirable work to do, the absence of green pieces of paper to bring them together for optimal infrastructure and beauty is a tragic-comic lie that’s a perfect example of the 1%’s figurative and literal bankrupt economic paradigm.

How close are we to this economic breakthrough? I say we’re almouse there; just a whisker away from Anytown being a happiest place on Earth.

  • Disneland like Hollywood is just American show piece to fool the world. It has nothing to do with the American reality. These structures don’t represent 52 million Americans who cannot affort necessary medicare or 46 million Americans who cannot read or write.

    Americans make a little over 4% of world population – but consumes over 40% of world’s resources. The US has world’s highest numbers of billionaires (450) and millionaires (320,000) – but 80% of them belongs to country’s 1% rich minority. The new census data released shows that over 49 million Americans (16%) live below poverty line. America has the worst wealth inequality among the industrialized world.

      Fair enough, Rehmat, AND universal healthcare is an obvious fix, education is an easy fix, resource-based economics shows we have an abundance of renewable resources for all human economic needs.

      The US today is the poster-child of the 1% to be sure.

      And that said, given zero technical-physical things preventing these fixes once the 99% demand them, come on, you see beauty in architecture and landscaping as a natural step forward, yes?

      We can have this brighter future. It starts with “emperor has no clothes” declarations and assertions of the obvious crimes of our 1%, and demand for obvious economic solutions.

    Proto-Keynesian economics *sigh*

      You argue for a commodity-backed currency, I assume, Nick?

      Ok, if so, I’m happy to engage independent cost-benefit analyses of fiat debt-free currency for the direct payment of public goods and services versus having to buy and then store valuable commodities like gold or silver to issue notes representing that commodity.

      I say it’s obvious that money is not wealth, but a representation, and most efficiently used as such while useful commodities like gold and silver be used for what they’re useful for, and never sitting on shelves.

      And moreover, Nick: all you have is an uninspired sigh about the happiest topic on Earth: economics reform??
