What could serve to function as a measurable value for a society to define itself through?
We use money, but could something like innovation or truth be translated in place instead?
How a nation manages their money determines the kind of government and society.
Where the money is managed out of the hands of the people, we call this communism. In a world where every nation is like this, we would say fascism must be the rule. Where we have the choice to use one nations money or another’s we say we have capitalism.
If the whole world feeds itself would that be a self sustaining society? Isn’t that what we are as a default?
