A Quote About Divine Economy Theory – Poles of Unity and Justice in the Model.

“Similarly the divine economy can be more fully understood when the model includes the poles of unity and justice. It is around these two poles that the divine economy revolves. The axis of these poles represents the ‘nature and role of knowledge.’ The implication here — with this axis being centrally located within the model — is that knowledge flows throughout and that it is this free-flowing knowledge that best serves all of the divine economy processes.

This is a key concept in the divine economy theory. It is the nature and role of knowledge that enables the equilibrium forces to maintain balance and harmony. Intervention by those with finite human understanding strikes at the ‘nature and role of knowledge’ axis — with the consequences being a condition of imbalance and disharmony and a corruption of the divine economy.”

Profit-Sharing Is Only A Small Contributor To Equitability.

The fascism of the State – protecting and regulating businesses – makes it possible for profits to be exorbitant. Then the ‘executives’ have even more incentive to join in the State fascism. In a free market the free entry will allow all profitable endeavors to quickly be moderated by new producers (who would need to hire people). This would go a long way towards distributing profits to workers, even without a profit-sharing policy within a firm. And guess what: fascism and socialism (these are merely variations of Statism) are both created and maintained by the State and are oppressive!

There Is A New Advancement In The Divine Economy Theory.

Even though I frequently add comments that are stimulated by issues that come up in the current news and that these sometimes are new perspectives – maybe not thoroughly covered in the divine economy theory book series – these newly discovered advancements are not comprehensive.

The fact of the matter is that I am now in a marketing stage. From 2005 until the summer of 2012 I was dedicated to developing and writing the foundational literature of the divine economy theory. It basically ‘came full circle’ from macroeconomics to microeconomics to ethical economics to economic justice. Of course the science can and will continue to advance but my focus changed towards marketing the products and the theory.

But I encountered several inspiring and informative pieces over the last week and I also re-encountered an inspiring piece which when I encountered it in the past I missed its significance!

When I show you the very potent segment of the quote you probably will not recognize its import since I assume that you have yet to be familiar with the divine economy theory or to be able to deeply comprehend the foundation of the theory:

“. . . the love of God, the axis around which souls revolve in their way and supplication to God.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 363)

Reducing it further; “the love of God, the axis around which” puts it into terms that make it interchangeable with the divine economy theory models. Once that becomes possible then the potency of the models increases exponentially and the thrill of contemplation and meditation on the manifold and resplendid meanings of these potent words begins to bloom.

Initially I thought I could describe the advancement in a blog entry but the most limiting factor is the graphics capability of blogs. I have determined that an adequate description of the advancement will require modifying the narrative of the potency of 44 divine economy theory diagrams.

And so the main purpose of documenting this advancement is to make it known that – should I die before I have a chance to incorporate these advancements into updated editions of my books – there is an incredible new element that makes the divine economy theory even more exciting and applicable to the human action of purposeful spiritual beings.

“Liberalism Is What Is Needed” Declares ‘Abdu’l-Baha.

As the central theme for the farewell address given to America and published in the Washington DC Star on November 24, 1912 ‘Abdu’l-Baha declares: “Liberalism is what is needed.”

“Praise be to God, the standard of liberty is held aloft in this land. You enjoy political liberty, you enjoy liberty at large of thought, you enjoy religious liberty, and you enjoy racial and sectarian liberty, and you enjoy personal liberty. Surely, this is worth thanksgiving!

As to the warm welcome which has been extended, I wish to reciprocate the same fully and completely.

Surely, men who are leaders of thought should follow the example of those who have welcomed me. Liberalism is what is needed. They must be kind to all nations. They must not be limited, because God is unlimited. The love of God is unlimited. And whoever is the servant of the threshold of God must likewise be free from limitations. The world of existence is an emanation of the merciful attribute of God. God has shone forth upon phenomena through is effulgence of mercy, and He is clement and kind to all of His creation.

Therefore the world of humanity must ever be the recipient of the bounties from His Majesty the Eternal Lord. Even as His Holiness Christ has declared, “Be ye as your Father who is in heaven.” For surely His sun shineth upon the just and upon the unjust.”

And then the rest of the farewell address expands upon the spirit of liberalism, infusing it with both logic and an understanding of the power of the spiritual capacity of human beings.

Having this great classical liberal (and the Center of the Covenant of Baha’u’llah) in America for 239 days will be recognized as one of the greatest historical events in the West once mankind awakens from its slumber that is characteristic of these – the Dark Ages of Economics.

Reality? Subjectivism Over Objectivism.

All value is subjective and exists; because humans exist and make that assessment!

 

When we consider the world of existence, we find that the essential reality underlying any given phenomenon is unknown. Phenomenal, or created, things are known to us only by their attributes. Man discerns only manifestations, or attributes, of objects, while the identity, or reality, of them remains hidden. For example, we call this object a flower. What do we understand by this name and title? We understand that the qualities appertaining to this organism are perceptible to us, but the intrinsic elemental reality, or identity, of it remains unknown. Its external appearance and manifest attributes are knowable; but the inner being, the underlying reality or intrinsic identity, is still beyond the ken and perception of our human powers. Inasmuch as the realities of material phenomena are impenetrable and unknowable and are only apprehended through their properties or qualities, how much more this is true concerning the reality of Divinity, that holy essential reality which transcends the plane and grasp of mind and man?”

 

And so it is – if we are to be fair in our judgment – absurd to limit our understanding of economics to narrow and limiting paradigms.

 

“That which comes within human grasp is finite, and in relation to it we are infinite because we can grasp it. Assuredly, the finite is lesser than the infinite; the infinite is ever greater. If the reality of Divinity could be contained within the grasp of human mind, it would after all be possessed of an intellectual existence only — a mere intellectual concept without extraneous existence, an image or likeness which had come within the comprehension of finite intellect. The mind of man would be transcendental thereto. How could it be possible that an image which has only intellectual existence is the reality of Divinity, which is infinite? Therefore, the reality of Divinity in its identity is beyond the range of human intellection because the human mind, the human intellect, the human thought are limited, whereas the reality of Divinity is unlimited. How can the limited grasp the unlimited and transcend it? Impossible. The unlimited always comprehends the limited. The limited can never comprehend, surround nor take in the unlimited. Therefore, every concept of Divinity which has come within the intellection of a human being is finite, or limited, and is a pure product of imagination, whereas the reality of Divinity is holy and sacred above and beyond all such concepts.” Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 421)

A Quote About Divine Economy Theory – Capital is the Most Limiting Factor.

“Most significantly, of all factors in the economy capital is the most limiting. See if you understand why. Ponder: in the here and now — in the present — we cannot live in the future! That is our limitation. The reason capital is the most limiting is because it is what connects the present and the future in the economy within our limitation. It is constrained by uncertainty yet its variation or structure determines the transformation that takes place in the economy.

Since capital is the most limiting factor, the movement or advancement of civilization depends heavily upon the structure of capital. This necessitates, optimally, that the capital structure needs to be a harmonious expression of the market so that it truthfully reflects the will of the people. In the divine economy fully vested human beings find and share knowledge in the market. Part of that knowledge reflects the importance of time which becomes manifest in capital and its relevant structure.”
