The Humanity Party® proposes providing electronically restricted HumanECard®s to all the inhabitants upon Earth to allow them to purchase the Basic Necessities of Life. Upon people having the funds to purchase these things, the demand for these things will rise exponentially. The supply of these things will naturally follow through the established free market economic system. Supplying the needs of the demand will create jobs and employment opportunities that did not exist before the demand was created.
The technology needed to make this a reality already exists. Today, the United States issues Debit Cards to welfare recipients for the purchase of food items. These cards are known as EBT cards, also known as SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistant Program) cards. “EBT” stands for Electronic Benefit Transfer.
The people using these cards do not monitor their purchases. The monitoring is already embedded in the purchasing system technology itself, allowing only authorized products to be purchased.
This is proof that it is possible to provide all people throughout the world an EBT card that will allow them to ONLY purchase the basic necessities of life. With this HumanECard®, one could buy:
• FOOD for the household to eat,
• basic HOUSING and UTILITIES for the household to live in,
• CLOTHING for the household to wear,
• basic HEALTH/DENTAL/MENTAL/VISION care for the household to be healthy, and
• basic EDUCATION so that the household can have a chance in developing its ability to deal with life.
THumP® proposes that we ensure all people have their basic necessities provided for, (without being forced to work for a for-profit company that enriches only a few) then allow the Free Market to work the way that it has successfully for hundreds of years utilizing a “supply and demand” economy.
No human, once their basic needs of life are met, will sit at home and do nothing. Humans want to expand their horizons and take advantage of the goods and services that others provide for their entertainment and enjoyment, things which SHOULD NOT be provided free of charge. To do this, people will WANT to work. There’s a big difference between ‘wanting’ to work and being forced to work.
Ensuring that the basic necessities of life are guaranteed to all people equally will support and enhance the Free Market system, but will also protect people from becoming slaves and abused by the companies for which they are forced to work to live.
When you read of all the suffering in the world where war, terror, unemployment, desperation, or the devastation of natural disasters exist, think about this:
What if every human being on Earth had one of these cards in their possession? Only the individual knew their unique passcode. If anyone lost their personal card, there would be government centers all over Earth where they could get a new one; or eventually, the account number will be affixed to the individual’s own DNA, fingerprint, iris … then there would be no need to carry a card. Your human smile would be all that you needed.
The card would NOT ALLOW ANY CASH transactions of any kind. It would only allow a person to purchase certain things that the United People of Earth’s (“UPE” now known as the United Nations) democratically elected Congress determined properly sustained human life with basic housing and utilities, basic clothing, basic healthy foods and drink, including pure water, basic health/mental care, and basic education. This card would also allow certain travel credits for anyone needing immediate transportation out of any area on Earth where misery is occurring.
This same Congress would have the legal right to issue funds to pay for the proper usage of the card, issuing fiat money for the purpose (EXACTLY like the current U.S. Congress does).
The possession of this card would not only unite the world economically, but emotionally.
There would be no current physical suffering by any group of people throughout the world, UNLESS, a person is forced to remain under an oppressive group of people; this is when a strong, well-regulated United People of Earth military security force moves in to secure and protect the universal rights of the people.
Look at the news, where it is reported and transparent. Consider the people of Rohingya who are being massacred at the hands of the Myanmar security forces and allied mobs. … IF each person was in possession of this card, the people of Rohingya’s situation would never be like it is. In fact, because money and greed are the underlying motivation of the Myanmar security forces and allied mobs, these oppressors wouldn’t want to get rid of the Rohingyians, because they would lose the income from the UPE.
But most people of this apathetic world … don’t know anything about what is happening in Myanmar. The Humanity Party® does and it has the solutions … to this and so many other worldwide problems, too.
ThumP® has the solutions. No one else does.®
