There is error in both sides of the arguments. Those errors have led to serious distortion, both economic and social. It is my contention that the solution lies in properly empowering the natural community of 150 individuals with access to fiat credit and to the rule of twelve. This creates a naturally limited economic floor that eliminates the possibility of poverty, while producing individuals transitioning to virtual communities at need to create larger pools of capital and wealth.
Both levels honor capital enterprise as it is naturally rewarding to a defined community. Think about that.
Civil community is a function of community and not an obligation of wealth production. Thus wealth production must empower communities to be better communities, not the other way around which is the flaw of our Indian reserve system and much of socialist thinking.
