PRELIMINARY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW A 6 POINT SECULAR MORAL CODE CAN BE PRESENTED OR IMPLEMENTED IN SECULAR GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS WORLDWIDE!!!!!!

59-1-3

Don’t destroy biodiversity:  

Conserve and gradually expand wilderness areas and try to maintain preserves for regional wildlife. Minimize toxic pollution, promote sustainability, and promote organic food diversity locally and internationally.       

Don’t lie:  

Define and give examples of libel. Itemize punishments for private lying and deception such as exclusion from a profession, organization, or friendship. Emphasize that one big lie or many smaller lies and deceptions can ruin the hard earned reputation of individuals and organizations almost overnight when the public becomes aware of them.

Honesty or not lying and deceiving is the basic reason bonding occurs between humans who can then begin to trust one another and live in relative peace and security. Dishonest leaders and dishonest organizations are also not trusted by the public and their reputation is also often very bad.

Don’t be inefficient:

Promote sustainable manufacturing with an emphasis on recycling of garbage and waste.

Promote the use of computer software and robots to do time consuming repetitive tasks in government, business, and at home.

Give examples of inefficient human behavior and the bad potential consequences from human extremes such as too much talking, too much irresponsible spending, too much useless education, too much entertainment, too much arguing, too much drinking and eating, too much greed or selfishness, too many bad addictive behaviors, too much lust, too much sex, too much fear, too much pride, too much risk taking, too much envy, etc. etc.

Do research and studies to determine what are the best ways to optimize human communications and get the most done with the least amount of energy expenditure or effort.

Of course competence is a primary component of efficiency so attempts should be made in the educational system to graduate competent humans with useful skills, useful knowledge, and useful social behavior.

Don’t steal:

Define steal and promote its first basic understanding to young impressionable minds as the theft of personal information and the theft of the possessions of individuals and organizations.

There are five justifiable conditions under which humans and/or the government can steal and this can be presented to moral teenage offspring and moral adults. Taxation to protect the citizenry from immoral citizens and immoral nations is a primary justification with a secondary justifiable emphasis on the controversial taxation for the general welfare or infrastructure and a social welfare safety net for the unemployed and also destitute. 

Don’t commit adultery if married:

A healthy financially responsible moral family unit is the foundation of any social and national success. Next to

. money, adultery is the second most likely reason why divorce occurs and ruins good role models for offspring who themselves may choose to propagate at some point in the future and be burdened by the same parental dysfunctional relationship problems. 

Don’t murder:

Define the murder of humans and take into consideration the fact that an accident may result in death and that murder can be justified in personal and national and/or international selfdefense.

A personal reason for murder is as a criminal threatening to use violent force on you with a deadly weapon such as a firearm. In national and/or international selfdefense proven terrorists or verified true members of declared terrorist groups can be terminated in their country of origin or at a minimum temporarily arrested in a foreign country to determine whether they have been framed unjustly.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PROFLIGACY+

maxresdefault

Progligacy: n. using very inefficiently and relatively in great quantity a subset(s) suchas natural resources and/or money

Profligacy basically means inefficiently wasting too much money and natural resources on trivial rather unimportant things or wasting too much on things that you want and don’t really need. The United States is a profligate throw away nation and the result is growing irresponsible behavior which causes pollution, environmental damage, and human relationship damage.

We are not careful with our possessions and that includes an increasing difficulty in maintain good human relationships because we don’t value the right kind of relationships but consider them throw away relationships also.

Recycling is only a partial solution to profligacy and we must learn to live sustainable efficient lives. Scarcity naturally encourages thriftiness and efficiency. Where there is abundance and wealth profligacy is often a natural tendency which is hard to reverse unless a crisis situation is reached which puts an end to profligacy.

Great credit card debt and governmental debt is an example of profligacy which eventually threatens to bankrupt many personal and then national finances.

Governments which encourage financial profligacy are doomed to have a massive harvest of irresponsible profligate citizens with most eventually doomed to live a life of poverty and misery.

THE TRUTH ABOUT WASTE***

images

Waste: v. to use carelessly in large amounts and very inefficiently

How much time, money, and effort are you wasting on trivial and rather unimportant things in your life? If you are spending much time, money, and effort and don’t seem to be making any good progress in your life then it is time to reprioritize your life and make it more efficient.

Spend more time, money, and effort on the truly important things in your life and exclude the time, money, and effort wasters which don’t get you any closer to your goals or desired state of happiness.

Communicating too much, spending too much shopping, watching TV too much, driving around too much, losing too much sleep, drinking too much, goofing off or hanging out too much, and trying to do too much in your life are all signs that you should cut back on them and not waste so much time, money, and effort or energy on them.

THE TRUTH ABOUT BUREAUCRACY

Bureaucracy

Bureaucracy: n. (nonelected government officials and/or organization workers) who generally are inefficient with too many (unjust laws and/or rules) to (obey and/or enforce)

 

It is a general rule that the larger a bureaucracy the less efficient it becomes. There are no incentives to make government more efficient with cost cutting measures. Instead, if you generally don’t spend all the money in your department then the amount gets cut back in the following years and you as an administrator are forced to get by on less money. Frequently this results in wild profligate spending towards the end of the fiscal year trying to make sure that all the money is spent.

 

I have personally witnessed perfectly good interstate roads being torn up and replaced with new asphalt because money was left over for road repairs and the road didn’t need any repairs. The scene where there are five or more workers on the job and only one of them if any are doing any work is legend.

 

Roadways blocked off for more than a year because a small bridge is being built over a small stream and the road is being paved is gross government inefficiency which I have also personally witnessed. Local contractors are probably not able to do the job efficiently too and this results in lengthy delays which efficient interstate or statewide construction crews could do better and faster.

 

Local building laws are so numerous that houses are being built with too many electrical outlets in each room and hardwired smoke detectors in every room encouraging waste of copper raw material and encouraging profligate electrical use. Local laws prohibiting unlicensed work on shingle replacement and other house repairs is making maintenance of real estate very costly for the small investor.

 

Bureaucracy should encourage efficient cost cutting by rewarding government workers with increased pay if they find ways to cut costs in their department. About 50% of the money saved should be paid the worker responsible for the successful cost cutting measures.

 

Laws are necessary in civilized governments but IRS laws with a thousand and one exemptions and over 3000 pages of rules is unacceptable unjust taxation which favors accountants, lawyers, and big money who take advantage of the loopholes.

 

Antipollution laws, conservation of biodiversity, and maintaining the biodiversity of the food supply should be an important government function. Unfortunately, with government interference favoring agribusiness, big ranchers, and factory farming, the little organic farmer, who shouldn’t be taxed at all, is being endangered and the health of the food supply is getting much worse and not better.

 

Ultimately there is a choice between an efficient oppressive government or and inefficient oppressive government. I tend to prefer the former because it would be wasting less of my hard earned money. Oppression is just a political fact of life for the relatively powerless with little money.

THE TRUTH ABOUT INEFFICIENCY

Savannah-Sunset_inefficiency

Nature is the standard of efficiency. It communicates efficiently and uses natural resources efficiently with no pollution while selecting the healthiest, smartest, and efficient to reproduce future generations.

 

Humans on the other hand have historically been inefficient communicators and have been rather unsuccessful is allocating the most resources to the healthiest, smartest, and efficient humans and having them reproduce in greater numbers for the benefit of future generations.

 

Technology is fast changing inefficiency in society but there are places where short term efficiency alone should not be the standard for production. We all need healthy biodiverse food to be healthy and efficient agribusiness factory techniques which emphasize quantity and not quality production are not producing the healthiest food possible to the detriment of future human health. Efficient manufacturing of products is also not as important as maintaining efficient minimal pollution levels which threaten the health of future generations of humans and wildlife if the pollution levels are too high.

 

We do not need polluting efficiency in the short duration but sustainable efficiency in the long duration which means quality certified biodiverse organic food and minimum pollution factories like the BMW plant in Chattanooga Tennessee.

 

Our outdated educational system is still mostly teaching liberal arts which is a job poor field. Gross inefficiency exists in traditional class settings of 20 or more students per teacher. The system is very inefficient and does not utilize each student’s abilities to their fullest.

 

Teaching moral behavior in a class setting is important in elementary school where students should be encouraged to interact with each other in a civilized way. However, once you are thirteen years old with a moral foundation each student should be able to advance at their own pace and graduate to the next level of expertise based on achievement level and not grade or age level.

 

Yes, same age students can be in a classroom but each one would be at his or her highest level of achievement in a subject. The result is that many hard working talented students would be graduating high school much before the age of 18 and have full voting rights before the age of 18. My evergreen truth book EDUCATION REFORM has the details of how teaching can be revolutionized to teach for the technological 21st century.

 

It has been scientifically shown that students retain only about 10% of what they read after about 2 weeks but retain as much as 70% if they interact with the material by speaking also. This fact alone means that interactive audio visual computer instruction is the most efficient way to teach students in most subjects and classrooms will have to have headphones and microphones so that the students can interact with the subject material fully and learn at the fastest pace possible. Yes, there will be lab time during which students can interact with physical objects also to further advance their knowledge of reality by tactile stimulation because motor memory is very important in connecting students with the real world as much as is needed.

 

Most literature, history, and philosophy is an excursion into useless mythological verbose information which will not be used again in life and should not be boring sources of vague information to be memorized for students in the 21st century. You should not be killing time in school but should be efficiently learning useful skills for a good job in society.

 

We need quality education for everyone and not mediocre quantity education for the common human in society!!!!!! WHAT you teach is far more important than HOW MUCH you teach. HOW MUCH useless information we have been and are teaching students is a crime which can no longer be justified and should not continue on into the future.
