Foundation Socialism is the fundamental part of a Nation’s economic system. Foundation Socialism could be called the base, footing, underpinning or the seat of a Nation’s economic system. Foundation Socialism is a group of government programs operated and controlled by the government that enhances a Nation’s productivity and prosperity. All Nations have developed Foundation Socialism to a greater or lesser degree.
A definition of Socialism is: a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. (New Oxford American Dictionary)
This definition of Socialism implies that Socialism includes the entire means of production, distribution and exchange of a Nation and should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. This is found to not be true in practice.
The common view of Socialism and Capitalism is that you either have one or the other. You have 100% of one or 100% of the other. It is implied that there is no mix between the political economic systems of Socialism and the political economic systems of Capitalism. On inspection of various countries there is no pure Capitalism or pure Socialism. They are found to be in a mixture of Capitalism and Socialism. The percentages of each vary from country to country. The mixtures could be 20% Socialism to 80% Capitalism or 50% Socialism to 50% Capitalism or 80% Socialism to 20% Capitalism.
However, there is a specific Socialism that is found in every country. It is a very important part of all political economic systems. It is the foundation of all political economic systems. It is called Foundation Socialism.
Foundation Socialism is and has been developed over years through trial and error. As time passes Producers in organizations, societies and nations learn which programs should be included under the umbrella of Foundation Socialism. This Socialist Foundation is created and maintained through Government programs.
I am not talking about something new. Foundation Socialism has been in existence for as long as man has been in existence. I am simply defining and separating out a part of a political economic system that exists in every country on the planet. I am flushing it out, bring it into view. Foundation Socialism is a prosperity creating socialism. It is a pro-prosperity socialism. It is Capital Producing Socialism.
This knowledge on Foundation Socialism will help Producers understand there is a foundation of social programs they can stand solidly upon while they produce commodities, trades, goods and services. Foundation Socialism gives Producers a very solid ground to stand on when they create commodities, trades, goods and services. Any man who would attempt to destroy any of these Foundation Social programs is a man who would destroy himself, his family, his society, nation, mankind and environments. This is an evil man at work.
There are specific areas that fall into Foundation Socialism. They vary from nation to nation. It is important that this foundation include only those areas that enhance the productivity and prosperity of the private producers. It is important that this foundation includes those areas that if left in the private sectors hands they would harm productivity and prosperity.
It is important that Foundation Socialism does not include areas that should be covered by Private Enterprise. This includes the areas of Corporate Welfare, Agricultural Welfare; Insurance for Banking, Nuclear and Vaccine Companies. These should not be a part of Foundation Socialism. Contracting out and privatizing Foundation Social Programs; baling out corrupt Banks and Wall Street, socializing the losses and privatizing the profits should not be included in Foundation Social Programs. Excess military spending should not be included in Foundation Socialism. These types of Government programs are forms of Capital Destroying Socialism.
The knowledge about Foundation Socialism will assist Producers in identifying any attacks against Producers by counter-producers. This knowledge will assist in identifying any counter-producer, using verbal attacks, to make all forms of socialism wrong. The trick counter-producers use is to make all forms of socialism bad. Then they can destroy the social foundation of a country. Through the destruction of the Social Foundation they redistribute and concentrate the wealth of a nation into their own hands.
Foundation Socialism is pro-prosperity socialism. When Producers know this, they will be alert for and recognize counter-prosperity thrusts. They will also recognize counter-prosperity thrusts when they are made to destroy Foundation Socialism. The Producers will be able to defend Foundation Social Programs and protect them from destruction.
Every Nation and every Society has its own peculiar set of Foundation Social Programs. They are based on many characteristics peculiar to each Nation and each Society. Climate, beliefs, topography, religion, customs, education, politics, etc would influence Foundation Social Programs. Foundation Social Programs by definition must enhance and act as an aid in furthering pro-prosperity production. These programs cannot aid in the destruction of prosperity. Counter-prosperity government programs would be a form of Capital Destroying Socialism. They must not be tolerated and allowed to exist by Producers.
Producers must operate like Hornets when an attack is made against their Social Foundation. “I was attacked by one Hornet when I got too close to it’s nest. I received seven stings on the back of the left hand and two stings on the back of the head. The Hornet was tenacious.” When Producers begin to really know that they are the full source of all money, value, energy, wealth, capital and prosperity that exists on the planet, their attitude should be to attack any counter-producer like a Hornet would. I encourage Producers to attack like a Hornet when an attack is made against them, their Productivity or their Social Foundation.
Foundation Socialism is a socialism that is not harmful to a Nation. It is very beneficial to the prosperity of a Nation. Foundation Socialism is a very important part of a Nations’ economic system. Private enterprise benefits immensely from a strong and solid economic social foundation. Private enterprise benefits from roads, bridges, governments (judicial, legislative and executive), policing services, fire control, health care, flood control, emergency services, national defense not offense, prisons, education, airports, seaports, water and sewage treatment, garbage collection, energy production, irrigation systems, etc. This is a very solid line-up of Foundation Social Programs that benefit private enterprise Producers.
Over the years there have been many attempts to privatize many of these Foundation Social Programs. These services become eroded away under the control of private enterprise. Most of these programs are monopoly activities or are too risky for private enterprise to undertake. Under private control they get priced out of existence or are too big for private enterprise to handle. Then the whole society recedes into recessions, depressions and wars.
Examples of activities that were too risky or too big for private enterprise to handle were the Internet, the Tans-continental Railway and developing Agriculture across the U.S. The Internet was developed with the aid of Government. Agriculture was greatly expanded and developed with the aid of the Homestead Act. The Trans-continental Railway was built with the aid of the Pacific Railroad Acts of 1862 and 1864.
Foundation Socialism has been a very important part of the economic system in North America since the first settlers arrived. When recessions and depressions have occurred, this economic foundation has been compromised by non-producing and counter-producing Right Wing Socialists. Right Wing Socialists attempt to operate these programs like private enterprises or they get rid of them.
Creating an Economic Foundation
The economic foundation of a Nation is Foundation Socialism. Foundation Socialism is created by the producing citizens. They entrust a Government, they have created, to take on the responsibility of managing and operating the Social Foundation. The Government is entrusted to operate it in the best interest of the Producers. Foundation Socialism is entrusted to be operated in such a way that the Producers receive maximum efficiency during their activities of creating commodities, trades, goods and services. Foundation Socialism is composed of government programs and projects that benefit the Producing individuals in a society. It is composed of government programs and projects that aid the Producers in their thrusts toward increasing prosperity.
There is an economic exchange taking place between Private Enterprise Producers and Producers who work and labor in the Foundation Social system. The laborers and workers operating Foundation Socialism receive money in exchange for the commodities, trades, goods and services they create to benefit Private Enterprise. They assist the private enterprise Producers in their quests of creating commodities, trades, goods and service. In exchange for their production assist, Foundation Social workers/laborers receive money in the form of taxes. The Private enterprise Producers exchange is in the form of taxes to their self-created Government. The Government must always be loyal to the Producers and only the Producers.
Many, many times throughout history non-producers and counter-producers have been allowed into Markets and Governments. They take control of Markets and Governments. With this control they use Government power and programs to drain the money, value, energy, wealth, capital and power away from the Producers.
Governments taken over and controlled by non-producers and counter-producers become loyal to these non-producing and counter-producing individuals. The non-producers and counter-producers use the power of government to turn against the Producers. Slavery for the Producers usually results. Producers must always work together to maintain control of their government no matter what lie the non-producer or counter-producer puts forth. Non-producers and counter-producers can be identified because they have no real product to exchange for money. They constantly tell you how bad everything is. They are very short on solutions. They attack and blame the Producers for any problems. When they get to power, they use the power of the government to redistribute and concentrate the money, value, energy, wealth, capital and power into their hands. They destroy pro-prosperity programs with counter-prosperity programs. The nations recede into recessions, depressions and wars.
In the past Right Wing Socialists have been the major players in the non-producing and counter-producing groups. Recently Communist Socialists have become competing non-producing and counter-producing players.
Foundation Socialism is composed of the following government programs, projects and services: Roads, bridges, water and sewage treatment, solid waste removal, education, policing, fire prevention and control, jails and prisons, all levels of government, judicial systems, prosecution systems, basic necessary nation defense, flood control, hydroelectric projects, mass transit, irrigation projects, medical and public health, airports, seaports, maintaining the Market open to all on equal terms, disaster relief, space exploration, mail services, aiding start-up activities that are too risky or too large for private sector enterprises to handle. Examples are the Transcontinental Railway, the Internet, some research projects and Space Exploration, etc.
Banking, maintain a constant money supply, maintaining Markets open to all Producers on equal terms, and basic health care should be added to the programs included in Foundation Socialism.
Foundation Socialism is classified under Capital Producing Socialism. Foundation Socialism assists the Producers in their creation of money, value, energy, wealth, capital, power and prosperity.
The Producers use the programs and services created by Foundation Socialism while they create commodities, trades, goods and services.
The Producers use the Open Market (open to all on equal terms.) The Open Market is vital and must be held open to all on equal terms. Non-producers and counter-producers must never be allowed into Markets. The Government must be vigilant to anyone attempting to degrade or destroy the Open Market. The Open Market is used by Producers to convert their commodities, trades, goods and services into money, value, energy, wealth, capital, power and prosperity. Maintaining the Open Market open to all on equal terms insures that only and only Producers receive money for their production.
The government must be vigilant to anyone attempting to expand the money supply. It is vital that this vigilance be maintained. When the money supply is expanded; money, value, energy, wealth, capital and power is stolen from those who hold the old money units. Banking must be severely held in check. Banks must not be allowed to expand the money supply when making loans. They must be held to loaning out only those funds they have on account.
Producers must never allow non-producers and counter-producers into Markets and Governments.
The above government activities will build a strong and solid economic foundation under a country. Prosperity will be much easier to achieve with a strong and solid foundation.
Foundation Socialism is a productive political economic system that places an economic base or foundation under a country’s Private and Government production systems. This creates a very solid prosperity creating system. Foundation Socialism is the basic load bearing part of a political economic system. It bears all the load and risk of higher political economic systems. Capitalism and other forms of Socialism rest on the political economic system of Foundation Socialism.
Foundation Socialism gives a country a very solid economic base on which to build prosperity.
Capital Producing Capitalism and Capital Producing Socialism use Foundation Socialism as a very solid base on which they can confidently produce commodities, trades, goods and services. As the Producers create commodities, trades, goods and services they are creating money, value, energy, wealth, capital, power and prosperity. Foundation Socialism gives Producers a very solid foundation on which they can create an expanding economic structure. With a healthy social foundation, Prosperity will continue to expand.
Unfortunately, non-producers and counter-producers also use the foundation created through Foundation Socialism as a base to operate. As they increase in the use of the Social Foundation they destroy it. They pull the money, value, energy, wealth, capital and power out of it. They transfer it into their hands.
Right Wing Socialism and Communist Socialism are particularly hard on Foundation Socialism. They convert the government programs that make up the Foundation into programs where they can remove huge profits for the few people in power. Contracting out and Privatizing Foundation Social programs are examples of Right Wing Socialism. This activity causes tremendous destruction to the Social Foundation. In both of these situations money is taken, redistributed and concentrated into the hands of a few rich and powerful people.
True Foundation Social Programs don’t work very well when private individuals set them up and operate them. Some of these government programs become monopolies when they are operated by private individuals. Some of these government programs are too risky. Some of these government programs are too capital intensive for private individuals to undertake.
When the government is used to handle these too risky and/or capital intensive programs; i.e., the Transcontinental Railway, the Internet and Space Exploration; the society as a whole is used as a buffer to lessen the risk. The government can provide much more capital to build and operate the programs.
The government is composed of all the Producing citizens. The risk and capital needed for these programs is shared throughout the governed society. The entire producing society acts as a buffer and ballast capable of absorbing any losses or failures.
A buffer is a person or thing that shields and protects against harm, or that lessens the impact of a shock or reversal. (Dictionary.com)
Ballast is anything that gives mental, moral, or political stability or steadiness. (Dictionary.com)
Foundation Socialism is composed of government programs that aid and protect individual Producers, families, organizations, societies, nations, mankind and environments against financial ruin or reversal. In this case Foundation Socialism acts as a buffer.
Foundation Socialism gives political stability to a nation. It also gives steadiness to an economic system. In this case Foundation Socialism ballasts the national economic system, producers, families, organizations, societies, nations and environments.
