The Problem is Not the Solution

The reason for jobs, is not to create more high-paying jobs, by allowing (nurturing) the problem to grow worse -- but to eliminate those problems, and the need for those jobs to deal with them.  Otherwise, those workers, perpetuate those problems to perpetuate their lifetime jobs.

Of course that happens only in government, because if it happened in the private sector, that enterprise would soon go out of business -- and be eliminated, because right-thinking people will not pay just to compound their problems and difficulties -- unless they've been indoctrinated to believe, there is no other way.  So it is no coincidence, that government problems always seem to get worse -- but if allowed to revert back to the private sector, would largely just disappear.

Chief among most people's concerns at this time, is the predictable growing out of control health care problem -- and the dire future promised for all those who hope to live in the future.  The solution is not more money to pay for it -- and more jobs because more money is available, but the change in the very nature of life at those times -- to an increasing health, freedom and independence from the reliance on the health care system in lieu of personal and individual responsibility -- that cannot be replaced by that abdication of such primary responsibilities.

And that is that one has to first ensure their own safety before blaming the failure of extraordinary efforts to revive them after they have placed themselves (knowingly) in harm's way -- as when a person gets drunk before and while driving, or doing any other life-critical tasks -- including the reckless abandon by which some think that others are primarily responsible for their well-being -- no matter what.

This is done all the time when bicyclist deliberately put themselves at the mercy of cars -- while demanding their rights as equally-entitled vehicles on the road.  But there are many others on the other side of that spectrum, who think that becoming morbidly obese and/or inactive and voluntarily disabled, entitles them to more rights than the able-bodied, and in fact, it is the task of the able-bodied, to make up whatever deficiencies a misguided few believe, requires even more sacrifice from others to make them whole.

Jobs of that sort, detract from society, well-being and the general prosperity -- because people think that the objective of society is to consume as many resources as possible, as well as many other lives in the process.  Lives of that sort and orientation, face peril at every juncture, in an unrelenting no-win situation.  It is the dysfunctional personality becoming a culture -- eventually consuming all the resources available to it, while productivity, has long ago become a distant memory of another time and place in history.

But whenever there is such a monumental and apparent challenge to the future of any species, race or country, a few rise to the occasion and offer another fate that is a break from the future that dooms them.  Rarely do people choose wisely willingly; they have to be forced to -- or feel that their dysfunctional choices are working -- well enough to continue that pattern of tradition.

For Hawaii, that turning point is when the young have to leave -- and be replaced by more rich, senior citizens from all over the world -- which then accelerates that trend into a stampede.  There is just no longer the question of remaining -- unless one is the 1% who can afford to live there comfortably.  And 1% of the world population, is 65 million people -- who could live anywhere they want to -- if they are enticed to do so.

They're not like the poor people who can come to Hawaii just on vacations -- driving up real estate and home prices to the spectacular levels the real estate industry lusts for -- to the havoc of everyone else, and normal lives.  In this way, the promotion and advocacy of real estate tourism to the exclusion of all other gainful activity, ensures an unfavorable distortion of life in the foreseeable future -- if we merely continue the disastrous status quo in every way we have come to do.

One must choose change -- not to continue down a disastrous path, thinking that hoping for change, is all that is necessary to achieve it.
