Ergonocracy

Author: Jorge Alves

First, there was capitalism; then
communism and finally…
Ergonocracy

 

The French Revolution stopped abruptly at a certain point, due to the revolution’s own dynamics, to the greed of certain rulers and also because they didn’t have the technological tools that we have today. Ergonocracy seeks to go further by defining more advanced frontiers with the use of IT and creating conditions in which humans can live in accordance with their
true nature. This is the origin of the name ‘Ergonocracy ‘. In addition to safeguarding the principles of freedom and equality before the law, inalienable defense of private property and the right of resistance to oppression, Ergonocracy adds the following concepts: dilution of power, direct democracy, concessionary companies and the prohibition of economic exploitation of man by man.
Ergonocracy defends the notion that all political mechanisms must be transparent and flexible, arguing that all citizens must have direct access to all public processes. This requires all public entities to disclose their actions and activities online.
It only makes sense in a truly free world, and aims to indicate the path to a society where people have fewer constraints on their individual freedom.
In terms of microeconomics, a new economic system is created that is better adapted to mankind’s characteristics, since this model has the main purpose of proposing a naturally balanced system that will do away with the exploitation of man by man. This implies that the current concept of employers and employees will cease to exist and in its place there will be a member-colleague business relationship, although certain partners may still have more influence in the organisation. The result is a single working class, which will simultaneously aggregate capital and labour.
Everyone has a vested interest in the organisation and genuinely strives for its success, being also emphasised the importance of meritocracy measures are also designed to reduce the power of large corporations.
The best of two worlds, to keep the freedoms and advantages of private initiative on one hand and the elimination of human exploitation on the other.
Ergonocracy will probably be the safest radical way to conserve the best of our ‘Old World’.
Keeping up where the French Revolution stopped!

Although the primary focus is on the management and administration of development, the importance of social, political, and cultural factors is also recognised.

Who Baked this Cake Anyway

Author: Riana Inger

 

Relationships are a lot like baking a cake. If the right ingredients are not there, then neither the cake nor the relationship will be a success. Using inferior ingredients or even omitting some because you think it doesn’t matter, and still hoping to have a successful cake will also not work. This book takes a look at why relationships do not work and what happens when you do not use the right recipe or follow the right methods in mixing the ingredients. The baking journey requires divine wisdom, strength and endurance to ensure that the cake is perfect for the final tasting. Couples often find themselves left bewildered as they ask “Who baked this cake anyway”.

Through the Valley

Author: Birgitta Nell

 

F. Scott Fitzgerald is claimed to have once said, “In the real dark night of the soul it is always three o’clock in the morning.” (Fitzgerald. 1945).

To those many people who have never suffered from a major depression, this dark and hopeless statement may seem like an unrealistic exaggeration.
How can a person be so morbid? Can’t they just look on the bright side? After all, happiness is a choice, isn’t it Just take a walk have a bubble bath, and you’ll be fine.
This advice might be helpful to person who is having a bad day, or even a bad week. But in suffocating space of the depressed person’s mind, there is no bright side. There is no choice, there is no other way.

Persoonlike Geldsake

Skrywer: Hein Swart

(Grootte: A4)

 

DIE doelwit van hierdie boek is om die basiese begrippe van persoonlike geldsake so eenvoudig moontlik aan die leek te verduidelik. Ingewikkelde formules, uitgebreide tabelle en omvattende grafieke is met opset vermy, want dit kan lesers net verwar en ontmoedig.

Die wêreld van finansies en geldsake kan vir die oningewyde soms intimiderend wees. Die terminologie wat soms in die sakesektor gebruik word, val dikwels vreemd op die leek se oor, ekonome praat bo-oor mense se koppe en finansiële raadgewers is dikwels nie in staat om ingewikkelde finansiële produkte op ‘n verstaanbare manier aan hul kliënte te verduidelik nie. Dit alles veroorsaak dat die gewone salaristrekker eenvoudig sy hande in die lug gooi en hulle dan op deskundiges verlaat om hul persoonlike geldsake namens hulle te behartig. Hierdie manier van doen is nie net duur nie, maar laat jou ook wawyd oop vir uitbuiting deur mense wat hul eie belange nastreef en nie ‘n duit vir jou as kliënt omgee nie.

Enige mens met ‘n gemiddelde intelligensie en ‘n bietjie gesonde verstand is in staat om self beheer oor sy persoonlike geldsake te neem. Hierdie boek dek nie net die hele spektrum van persoonlike geldsake nie, maar inkorporeer ook die nuutste finansiële ontwikkelinge en die jongste wetlike bepalinge. Dit sal jou nie oornag in ‘n miljoenêr verander nie. Om kitsrykdom  op ‘n eerbare, wettige manier te behaal, is ‘n mite. Net diewe, loterywenners en erfgename word gou ryk.

Wat hierdie gids egter wel vir jou kan bereik, is om jou in staat te stel om na ‘n leeftyd van harde werk en oordeelkundige beleggings jou senior jare te betree met ‘n hele paar miljoen rand op jou naam en een van net ses uit elke honderd mense te word wat eendag met finansiële gemoedsrus kan aftree.

Dit sal veral ook leerders help om die basies begrippe van persoonlike geldsake te verstaan.

No Daddy it hurts

Author: Charmaine Marè Mack

 

When you are a child; who do you trust the most to love you, protect you, guide you and teach you right from wrong?

Children need to know from a young age what is right and what is wrong when interacting with an adult. They need to be empowered so that their childhood is not stolen from them.

Born into a family tortured by an alcoholic father the author’s life became fraught with more than just fear of his rages, she becomes the object of something more frightening – his depth of her despair as she attempts to repair the seams of her life. When she realises that her father was not her biological father her life changes again, with more adjustments to make and more repairs to make.

Gerrie Gemmerbrood

Skrywer: Hanlie Brynard-Botha

 

Deel een van die Gerrie Gemmerbrood reeks met opvoedkundige materiaal.

“Hierdie verhaaltjie is geïnspireer deur my kleinseun Luke Geddes. Ek moes vir sy eerste verjaardag ‘n gemmerbroodmankoek bak. Dit was maklik, maar toe ek `n gemmerbroodmannetjie as sagte speelding soek om vir hom daarmee saam te gee, het ek gevind dat dit nie bestaan nie. Dit kon ook nie anders nie, want in die oorspronklike storie word die gemmerbroodmannetjie deur die jakkals opgevreet!

Dit het my laat besluit om vir hom so `n speelding te maak. Daarna wou baie kinders wat dit gesien het, ook gemmerbroodmannetjies hê. Omdat Luke baie lief is vir boeke en lees, het ek besluit dat die gemmerbroodmannetjie sy eie lewe moes kry en daarvoor is ‘n storie nodig.

In hierdie storie word Gerrie Gemmerbrood “gebore” en gaan hy op verskillende avonture. Die avonture gaan in ‘n reeks boekies wat hierop volg, vertel word.”

The best of South African Bonsai and a little history

Author: Willem Pretorius

(Size A4)

 

“The story of bonsai in South Africa is a fascinating one with colourful characters.

Not many bonsai countries can boast of trapeze artists, fighter pilots, a grower who established a bonsai-en on his bathroom roof and even a blind practitioner in their midst.

It is a rich heritage albeit poorly recorded and with lots of gaps that we can hopefully fill as the years pass. It is imperative that we do it as some of the characters are dying and without a record their tradition will mainly be transferred orally to next generations..”
