2.60 The Japanese Social Services Experiment: A virtual currency
I commend the Sovereign tribes of Japan for their unique visionary social services experiment in caring for elderly and disabled people.
I direct that this be used as a model in all other Sovereign tribes. For the uninitiated, the idea is actually quite simple. For every hour someone spends looking after the elderly, or disabled people, the State guarantees the time donor or their family will get one hour of help when they need it, in addition to "normal" health insurance.
Depending on what time of day the work is undertaken, or what the work entails provides various "Time account credits". Quite a lot of kind hearted people actually give away their time credits and just volunteer anyway. The elderly actually prefer workers from the Hureai Kippu ('caring relationship ticket') than social service workers paid by the state or insurance company!
This system is the key to caring for the elderly of the future. Think about it. What if the human race is initially given the knowledge to "discover" average life spans of several hundred years? Assume population control is not an issue. Assume old age only occurs for the last few years as now. The whole issue of social security will need to be put on the drawing board. This is the drawing board.
On a philosophical note, have you thought of the possibility that nature, evolution, fate, collective conscience or as I believe, God, may permit scientists to discover the technology for massive increases to human lifespan, only when certain key issues are resolved GLOBALLY, such as... war, poverty, population control, environment, boredom, sustainable abundance and ethical spiritual beliefs.
Get the social services infrastructure working now using time as a measurement as well as existing systems and watch the immediate improvement it will have in the World. I invite everyone to refer to the Family Community Support Card at the back of this book in appendix F.
