People that support what psychiatrist Thomas Szasz calls psychiatric slavery should not be around vulnerable people. If you support what Szasz calls psychiatric slavery then you are morally deficient and either malicious or willingly ignorant or oblivious. You will be on the wrong side of history.

I just called a Senator and requested that he attempt to implement a basic income at a Federal level. I informed him some about the issue in the voice message I left, and mentioned where he could learn more about basic income.
I left a voicemail. I was on Facebook for mobile. I liked a post by one of my senators and a link to call them was then presented below their post in the app. I clicked it and then my phone dialed the number so I could leave a voicemail. It was easy.
Please consider telling your elected Congress persons to implement a basic income. Call them. Email them. Tweet to them. Talk to them if possible.

So you are interested in engaging in social entrepreneurship? That is just great. Social entrepreneurship is when a business is used as a means of helping to solve social problems, environmental problems, or sometimes other types of problems. If you are a social entrepreneur or aspiring business owner, starting a benefit corporation (B corp), or turning your existing business into one, may be right for you.
To start a benefit corporation, you first need to start a business or have a pre-existing one; then you pay to have your company certified as a benefit corporation. In order for your company to be certified as a B corp, it first needs to meet certain criteria. This is the process for a B Corp in Oregon, each state may be a little different. Some states do not even allow for the official creation of B corps at all at the present time.
Benefit corporations are a relatively new type of corporate structure. The legal infrastructure for them is still being developed and created. Not all states allow for their official creation. However, if you are running a private business, you can potentially operate as a social entrepreneurial venture anyway.
If you are attempting to bootstrap a business (start a business with as little money as possible), becoming a certified B corp may not be financially realistic until significant profits are being generated or additional funding can be acquired. There are many types of problems which can use a solution, and there are many ways to engage in social entrepreneurship. Problems that social entrepreneurship can address can include topics like poverty, lack of clean water, social justice, lacking sufficient clothing or shoes, environmental problems and more.
For example, a benefit corporation can be a grocery store that focuses on providing sustainable and environmentally friendly products at reasonable prices while treating both customers and employees fairly and ethically. New Seasons, a chain of groceries stores, is an example of this business model. At New Seasons, they claim to be the first grocery business on Earth to be certified as a benefit corporation.
There are many problems on Earth that can benefit from potential solution. Benefit corporations and social entrepreneurship are aspects of businesses that can incentivize and motivate individuals to work towards solving various sorts of social and environmental problems while also earning a potentially significant profit for investors and other financial stakeholders.
Benefit corporations have a tremendous potential to do a lot of good in the world. Hopefully a greater percentage of businesses will operate in ways related to social entrepreneurship. Hopefully all states and nations will adopt the legal framework of benefit corporations in the future.
Tiny homes may help to reduce poverty significantly. It is quite possible to live in a significantly small space. If one has everything that one needs and not more than one does by definition have enough. There are many reasons to learn more about small homes and tiny houses.
Tiny homes may help to eliminate poverty from Earth. Tiny homes can allow for privacy evening when dealing with a more modest budget. Hopefully more home builders and contractors will build and sell tiny homes. Hopefully awareness about tiny homes will increase significantly.
Small homes can potentially have a garage, bathroom, washer and dryer, stove, air conditioning and other amenities expected in a comfortable and cozy home. Tiny homes can be one story, two stories, three stories or have a basement. They can come in all different shapes and sizes. Hopefully tiny homes will increase in commercial availability. Hopefully all adults on Earth can eventually own homes somewhere.
Tiny homes may help to eliminate homelessness. More entrepreneurs and home builders should look into tiny homes as a sort of potential social entrepreneurial venture. Hopefully this will happen soon. Spreading the word about the potential advantages of tiny homes is how many individuals can help raise awareness about this potential mechanism that may help to reduce poverty and homelessness.
Many individuals do not need or want a huge house. There is nothing wrong with this. If someone wants to have a huge house and they can afford it, then great, more power to them. There may be a shortage of smaller houses for individuals who do not need nor want a huge large house. Hopefully more individuals will realize the potential advantages that tiny homes can offer.
It is tragic that more has not already been done to reduce poverty and homelessness. Hopefully more sustainable and green home builders will focus on building small homes and tiny houses that more individuals can own homes and live on their own land.

There can be a great deal of value in nonfiction writing. Fiction can be enjoyable to read and writing. Nonfiction, especially creative nonfiction can be enjoyable to read and write as well. Both fiction and nonfiction can be used as a medium to communicate important, useful, interesting and/or entertaining messages.
Nonfiction writing can be important and significant to both the author and the reader. The author can financially benefit. The author can achieve satisfaction of putting thoughts and ideas into written form. The author can derive satisfaction from communication a valuable message to an audience.
Readers can benefit in many ways from nonfiction writing. It can be enjoyable to read and it can also be a way to learn about new ideas. There is truly an infinite number of fictional and nonfictional ideas that can be communicated through writing.
Nonfiction can be used in destructive ways. If a book or article promotes violence or anything that is authentically antithetical to authentic peace, then the writing can potentially promote destruction and chaos. Ultimately though, no book should be banned.
Helping to create more authentic peace and prosperity on Earth is perhaps the highest potential goal of writing. Writing can help to manifest and create more authentic peace and prosperity on Earth for readers, authors and even those who are not directly exposed to an authentically valuable nonfiction work of writing.
Not everyone on Earth needs to be producing written works. However, all humans might benefit if more humans will attempt to produce authentically valuable fiction and nonfiction works of writing. Some written works become famous and are valued and found to be useful hundreds, if not thousands, of years after they are produced. How is that for a type of achievable life after death on Earth?
Writing is a human invention. It helps to differentiate us from other animals on Earth. Writing has helped to maintain knowledge that can be further developed, researched, discovered and refined in future times. Nonfiction writing can truly be a priceless tool for improving the life situations for all humans on Earth.
