Systemic vs Moral Reform

"...We CANNOT reform user behaviour under a system without first removing the SYSTEMIC effect that produces that behaviour..."

This short article is perhaps one of the most important I have ever written,  as it contains the proof of how almost all popularised dissent against the evil in society is erred and only serves to energise the very paradigm that produces said evil. 

The error is not understanding the critical difference between the
SYSTEMIC effect of a design governing behaviour within that design,  from the effects of user behaviour on the nature of that design.  

The game of musical chairs illustrates this perfectly as it is the design of the game that determines that a minimum of players will be left without chairs no matter how the players dance when the music is playing.  It is therefore absurd to expect to solve the problem of chair-less players by modifying how players dance (behave) without first changing the design of the game. 
We CANNOT reform user behaviour under a system without first removing the SYSTEMIC effect that produces that behaviour.

Similarly,  it is absurd to invoke individual human behaviour as the cause of the rich getting richer and the poor poorer without first addressing the systemic effect that makes such behaviour imperative within society.  What is that effect? 

We have formally proven that money's logical misrepresentation
necessarily produces the following SYSTEMIC effects:

  1. Stability of the value of asset holdings is systemically precluded.

  2. Asset value can only increase or decrease.

  3. The probability of decreasing asset value is systemically made greater than that of increasing it NO MATTER HOW RICH YOU ARE (inflation/deflation).

So, if we confuse the SYSTEMIC effect of logically misrepresenting money,  with the effects of the morality or lack thereof of people's behaviour under the yoke of said misrepresentation, we are doomed to greater divisiveness, alienation, animosity, belligerence, mistrust, condemnation without ever impacting the underlying source of the "immoral" behaviour. 

It therefore follows, that any explicit or implicit appeal to morality as the solution to the world's problems without first addressing the SYSTEMIC effect of money on everyone's behaviour (
rich and poor) is not only futile, but only further fuels the problem, as the futility of such pomposity squanders our collective resolve leading us all to greater and greater states of learned helplessness making us ever more impervious to true change.  Such guilt based approaches, ultimately serve to implicitly blame the victims of abuse by demanding moral infallibility while ignoring the root abuse of money's misrepresentation on everyone.
