We cannot reverse climate decline if every day more people
are like refugees, worried about the next drink and meal:
Let us stop our existential meltdown, now.
|Motto: Share Job Time or Jobless Crime
Meaning: By better employing our time, we can have a 24-hour workweek
in 4 years with more disposable funds and fun for self, family, and community
in a safer, saner world.
January, 2020, Ephiphany: Beyond social justice,
the main reason for mandating a shorter workweek is found in the answer to
who is a greater CO2 sinner against Mother Nature, that is, who is accelerating
The job idiot working 80 hours per week to buy a bigger
house, bigger car, Peloton bikes, etc.,
The jobless, homeless person living in a tent?
To save life on Planet Earth--the Primary Moral
Imperative--requires a new morality based on people giving up materialism
for mentalism. Focusing on corporation change are blind alleys compared to
individual changes in daily life choices.
The Global Warming Test:
Grow the economy till we die.
Slow it so we live.
Beyond the optimal workweek length (and thru taxes, inflation, deficits and
crime) you are not working for yourself but for those who cannot find work.
Fools and their time are soon parted like dogs wasting their time chasing
2-Step Plan to 24in4:
Establish part-time, problem-solving community service jobs for
cost. Take healthcare costs out of the business bottom line.
One-time, zero-interest refinancing of loans with
13. Convert interest savings into shorter workweek thus creating an
employment vacuum to employ the unemployed, under-employed and mis-employed.
The average person works 8 hours a week to pay direct or indirect interest
on loans. That is over 400 workhours a year.
If a student, would you pay $10 to refinance your loans.
If an employee, would you pay one hour of wages to save 400 hours of wages
If an employer, would you pay one hour of your employees' average hourly
wage to refinance your loans?
Please note that the first 1,000,000 people can sign up for free!
What percentage of the middle-class employees and employers do you think
would pay one hour of wages for a one-time refinancing of all their loans
Share Job Time or Jobless Crime: A catch!
If 24in4 loan refinancing lowers your cost of living by eight hours, would
you be willing to work less?
By translating the interest costs savings into a reduced workweek, we create
a 20% employment need.
We can pull people onto and up the work/career ladder thus reducing our tax
costs as well as inflation, insurance and crime rates!
An irony: When one works beyond 24 hours, one is not working for oneself
but to support the jobless, i.e., unemployed, under-employed and mis-employed.
Let them work for themselves!
|The 1930s Depression peak of 25% unemployment would never have happened
if the workweek had been shortened so that we had full employment at 30 hours
per week. Importantly, by exporting this better capitalism to Europe, the
unemployment crisis driving the rise of fascism would not have happened.
The European Second World War would probably have not happened with its great
suffering and loss of life. If you want to reduce the chances of the current
rise in radical right-wing fascism, here and abroad, act to reduce the workweek.
The probabilty of WWIII is greater with each uptick in unemployment,
under-employment and mis-employment.
Healthcare via community service:
Healthcare costs are almost 20% of the GDP, or, again, almost 8 hours of
labor in a 40-workweek.
We need to take the healthcare costs out of the business equation (which
discriminates against female and elderly workers) by having people commit
to part-time community service six to eight hours per week.
As is, with the Affordable Care Act, the tax-payers get nothing but fatter,
unhealthier tax-dependees. People who would not take care of themselves without
healthcare have been shown to take even less care when they are given free
healthcare. Exceptions to this rule are publicized all the time, but it does
not change the rule.

Thus, accumulate lifehour credits now. Lifehours are like frequent flyer
miles: The more people have more of them the sooner they have a market value
independent of their origin.

The resulting better government will save trillions, e.g, switching healthcare
costs to community service will annually reduce taxation needs by $1.5 trillion.
Service providing government units will have lower tax needs as volunteers
commit to solving community problems.
Moral Imperative of Saving Life on Earth from climate change. If
we do not save the middle-class by implementing better democracy, capitalism,
economics and morality, we will all die as we fight more and more over less
and less like the former middle-class citizens of the Mideast and Africa
who are now non-productive, hungry, angry migrant refugees.
24in4 is a mirror of Wall Street creating a new corporation with shares being
allocated to originators and
initiators. 24in4 will
have an LBO/IPO when sufficient legislators dedicated to 24in4 are elected
a majority in the US Congress. The process and means are simple. All it takes
is enough people giving the time it takes to signup as a supporter (for free
or one wagehour) and then vote in the general election for the 24in4 candidates
(most of which will be homesteaders).
