The Ethical Capitalism 2014-2020

With heartfelt thanks I dedicate the following chapter, to the author of the book "Systemopposition" Michael Greven, who in conversations with me through criticism and suggestions has contributed valuable advice to the development of a new more just social system and described the modeler of Ethical Capitalism thus:

"Dieter Liedtke is an artist,
sociologist and social philosopher
in hitherto unknown intellectual spheres."

Prof. Dr. Micheal Th. Greven, 2011
Professor of Political Science / Dean of the Universities; Marburg, Darmstadt and Hamburg / Chairman of the DVPW Ethics Committee and the DVPW Standing Committee for Teaching and Studies.

Luigi Sturzo Special Award of the Premio Amalfi/
Honorary pin of the German Political Science Association/
Advisor of the Outline of Ethical Capitalism as a Social System.

The statement of Michael Greven shows that Hegel's dialectic and his idealism with Marx's materialism has not yet been realized by synthesis to an Ethical Capitalism.

The following thoughts on Ethical Capitalism cannot be a patent remedy.

This enumeration is not about completeness.
Of course, new developments and researches will shift the parameters of the requirements, but together with the new findings they show the direction in which we can go in peace in the future with more than 20 billion people. Known contexts should be considered, future developments discussed, but also brought to the attention of politicians and companies, stimulating thought processes on how ethical capitalism can be developed and implemented on a socio-political level, not only in Germany and Europe, but worldwide.

From today's point of view, it is not advisable to further expand capitalism with its weaknesses and dark sides without causing even more damage to humanity, nature or the fellow world. On the contrary, we need a new capitalist concept that includes the advantages of capitalism and that protects and implements the human rights of the UN Charter and the preservation of species in the sense of creation as well as aims at sustainability and co-environment as a basic prerequisite and basis.
We need as a new social evolutionary thrust an
"Ethical Capitalism".

The evolutionary advantage of an ethical capitalism:
According to the latest research results, it corresponds to our genetic and epigenetic, natural, social and evolutionary DNA programming: "Being our human".

Goals of an Ethical Capitalism
Ethical Capitalism is focused on the development of sustainable co-environmental products and business models, and on ethical profits that put people first with nature.

1. The right to free development
Every person has a right to: Freedom of information, freedom of the press, the consideration of the media code by those in charge, to education and free development of creativity and personality, free access to the Código Universo through the educational systems for the simplest (only by seeing understanding) neurobiological adaptation of the existing creativity in his faith community, culture and people, as well as the understanding of religions not understood until then, peoples, cultures, works of art and innovations, as well as the right to freely accessible Internet, education, training, professional and continuing education systems, in addition to a right to information on the Código Universo and various media codes in the regionally predominant national language and in English, in addition to free access with a computer and a free Internet connection.

2. Protection by the world community
Everyone has a right to the defense of his freedoms and dignity and the protection of the world community against totalitarian state systems, dictatorships, terrorism, war, genocide, torture, oppression, exploitation, racism, exclusion, false and misleading information, and against direct and latent subtle fear propagation.

3. The right to an unconditional basic income
Every person has the right to: clean drinking water, clothing, medical care, food, as well as decent housing and/or an unconditional basic income, which enables him to take on voluntary work for society at his own request or to perform tasks and work that give meaning to his life and generate further income. In addition, however, a monthly basic income gives him the opportunity to set himself up on one of the various levels of wealth plateaus in society. By unlocking his epigenetically existing creativity through the Código Universo, every human being contributes to the ethical development, to the economic success of his country, companies and his life by spreading ethical products and ethical business models and his own economic participation in ethical concepts.
Labor is no longer taxed.Income or labor taxation will be eliminated with social system costs and health and pension insurance, and replaced with an online sales tax at the point of use and delivery. The value added tax will remain.

The Way
We do not need a state or a globally positioned corporation or a religious community to pursue the goals of Ethical Capitalism, but rather the people around the world who do not want to continue to support the exploitative, dominant and dualistic systems and who want to participate in the positive, open creation of an ethical world. Laws and constitutions stand in the way of ethical capitalism and not against it. But even in the states where ethical capitalism will be banned, the faster and stronger developing creativity, better health and higher prosperity of the populations of open states, which live according to the principles of ethical capitalism, prove the practical and philosophical freer shaping possibilities of the people. Gradually, even in the closed social systems (as the history of the last 500 years shows), the realization will prevail that without freedom, dignity, prosperity and health of the population (with an ever-increasing world population), the observance of the UN Charter of Human Rights and religious freedom, no state can permanently prevent an evolution of the social system.

 Proposed Election Issues:
The community of voters and the developed AI software tools that uses the swarm intelligence of the population to ask the questions developed by citizens to vote on each question with three pros and three cons (non-personal, graphic fact films with clear explanations based on evidenced information and based on facts and adherence to the media code produced and verified by non-partisan students in universities) that promote free decision making by the voter.
