Real deficits, true wealth, never scarce
The following is not a definitive list by any means. Yet I wonder if we consider that instead of speaking about the fiscal deficit – where money is a manmade construct and as such can be deconstructed – we might be more concerned about real deficits. (If you have not read Stephanie Kelton’s The Deficit Myth then please do consider doing this.)
Where instead of bowing to the God of money as wealth, we might revere what is true wealth and focus on all-access to true wealth.
And rather than get caught in a cycle of fear, scarcity, and win-lose games we might know the things that we have control and choice over, every moment of every day, no matter circumstances.
Dignity for all
Visionary leadership beyond the reporting/election cycle
The ability to think, act and behave through complexity, to be better sense makers
Health and access to health care for all
To be surrounded by nature
Friends who dare to hold us to our best
Love – the capacity to give it and receive it
The opportunity to learn and to be supported to learn through a lifetime
Active ability to participate as a citizen
Adequate healthy uncontaminated food
Community that know we are better together, better when all win, better when we play the infinite game
A future that holds promise, life, wellbeing, dignity, our ability to be all that we have the ability to be
Not scarce – ever
The ability to spread love
The ability to laugh and support laughter and joy
The ability to care for something greater than ourselves
