Restructure the economy to have an earnings cap. Yes an earnings cap. As one meet success and money, they’re sense of self worth becomes proportionally inflated (not all, but an overwhelming majority). As such, they justify terrible things, and therefore do terrible things.
There are plenty of studies showing less competitive markets actually have people doing greater innovations for the greater good. Communism failed ( no I’m not a communist, just someone throwing some ideas out there) due to the fact it failed to take into account human psychology. But I believe only a system truly based on the greater good stands a chance to last. People should still be paid accordingly for the jobs they do, and have as many freedoms as possible under the governing system. People should be allowed to disagree, speak their minds, and choose what type of life they want to live.
The true issue is the people at the top with inflated senses of self worth overpaying themselves simply because they can. Excess money that would have gone to over inflated bonuses, salaries, etc. should not just go back into the business but literally be forced to go into social programs, charities, sustainable energy and food research/resources.
Our true enemy is ourselves. That being said we need to prepare against ourselves. I have seen what success will do even to good men, and what good men will do with success… its not good. Not just in the sense of what we do to our environment, each other etc. but our very nature. We have animal instincts, and capitalism appeals to our animal survival instincts in a tragically primal way. Simply put, we have outgrown our own evolution.
