Development Policy

[1298] All the ills of this world can be permanently solved by development and a state of felicitous life can be achieved for everyone before L. For this purpose, first of all the general conditions have to be set properly. This is the responsibility of the (world) policy. But the politicians act only accordingly if they adhere to the valid standards. The religion of love sets the standard, binding before L, with the word of L presented here.

[1299] There are circumstances that can not or hardly be influenced, such as the climate. There will always be areas that have more favoured presuppositions for the settlement than others. If the world community, however, agrees that there should be transfers from the favoured areas to the less favoured, it needs only to establish an allocation formula according to that the transfers can take place fairly.

[1300] For this purpose, it must be ensured that the existing governments want the best for the governed people and are qualified high enough to implement this. Now there are (power) structures in the world that do not conform to high standards, but pursue their own (particular) interests. Since they have enough alternatives available, they cannot be forced on high standards.

[1301] Here a policy of continuous change for the better has to begin. Each person must realise that a life at the expense of others pays off in no case, perhaps in the short term, but by no means in the long term. The most felicitous life leads who does in the sense of L. No (material) wealth of the world can make somebody happy in perpetuity, even if it is a prerequisite for many things.

[1302] No one can alibi before L, ze did not know. The punishment by L for the suffering of many people, one caused, is proportional to the amount of suffering and dead people. It is also proportional to the richness of an individual. The wealth and the suffering will be measured per unit of time. Therefore, it is not possible to release by a single action from zis debt. The longer the time, the longer lasts the punishment.

[1303] If everyone realises these facts, it should quickly come to a compensation of the personal financial circumstances, which is the presupposition for a good development. High significance then has the education, which is the basis for personal and thus for overall development. If most people know the (ethical) standards that L desires, things are only looking up.

[1304] The institutions can be created in that qualified employees can care for the welfare of the entrusted people. It implies a permanent growth and development process, which is advantageous for the most creatures. The free riders that exploit the loopholes and look for their personal gain are permanently put in their place by the laws and the disapproval by the majority.

[1305] Since developed people have not to conduct war among themselves, military expenditures can be reduced strongly and flow into the expenditures for development (policy). These can be further increased by the savings for products that are no longer in demand because they are regarded as unnecessary luxury goods. Growth through such products cannot be tolerated, since they are charged to the debit of others.

[1306] The economy must be rebuilt so that the vast majority of profits comes from products that the majority requires, which are therefore no luxury. The formation of monopolies is here to be avoided, since the monopolist can abuse the market for zis goals at the expense of the majority. At least, zis dominant position is to weaken by measures that make zis profit available for the majority.

[1307] If a large portion of the profits so flows back to the majority, nothing can be said against them. Since the monopolist is also a human being ze can open to better insights. Ze will invest then in that what brings the most utility to the majority according to zis ideas. The same is true for other rich enterprises. Generally, however, the market with many competitors is clearly to choose over all other models.

[1407] Furthermore, the important sources of information will be reliable. To whom the pressure arising from the word of L and hence from L is too small to solve the problems of this world to solve, should bring to mind that ze forgoes the advantages that are in the potential of their solutions. One feels not only morally better, but generates advantages of one's own quality of life, which bring along for example the conservation of the environment.

[1408] The expanded trade and the increased exchange of knowledge from all areas of life enhances the overall quality of life considerably. It is an error to believe that one can maintain the wealth gap for a long time, since the less developed countries concerning the number in the majority and can defer indeed to advantages of site (e.g. concerning the resources and manpower).

[1409] Development encompasses the whole world and no rich country can presume to act in isolation, since it always depends on the other ones. Therefore, the countries must draw near in the context of globalisation, and they do it already, albeit on a much too small scale. The self-interest of the rich countries still plays a bigger role than the desirable altruism demanded by L.

[1410] As long as for too many people charity begins at home, this primarily moral problem will not be solved. Solution is a profound change in awareness in the rich countries that brings the global need for action home. Change in awareness is reached by spreading the right ideas. This can be spread in the media of all countries as well as centrally on the internet.

[1411] Concerning this the grossest nuisances are to make public together with the approaches to solving the problems in order to remedy them. It is to make clear, how unfair the world trade and the demeanour of the concerns of the rich countries are in the developing countries and how small the expenditures of the development policy currently are. But it is equally to make clear where developing countries are a bar to their own development.

[1412] This is the case where governments pursue an irresponsible policy by governing past the interests of their population. Where the indebtedness outgrows and enrichment and corruption prevail, where there is no democracy, where is mismanaged, where the environment is massively damaged, where poverty is ineffectively fought against and children and women are exploited, effective policy is possible only with difficulties.

[1413] To respect human rights can be expected from each country. Democracy cannot be constrained in any country without more ado. An isolation policy must not forget the humans living in such a country. There are conditions in which only the time and favourable circumstances can lead to an improvement. A policy of rapprochement and of small steps is still more effective than none.

[1414] Nobody can blind zerself permanently to the necessities. The religion of love and I point out where when what is how to change. But only if as many as possible go along, it will give significant results. Development cannot be constrained, but it is demanded by L and ze it expects it. I will in this respect set a good example, develop viable optimised solutions and implement them (by others).
