Socio-Economic Systems

The meaning of socio-economic system is as it sounds, social and economic interaction with rules. Effectively, the economic factor impacts the social and vice versa. On national and international levels, the political or religious system sets the principles and rules that dictate how people must live, and interact with each other socially and economically.

Throughout the millennia, religious systems have governed alongside the dictatorships of kings, and the public have hardly had any say in influencing the laws. In recent centuries, the public’s influence has started to rise, and have a say in changing the laws. Hence, the political systems began to listen and interact with societies to set up the principles and rules of their socio-economic system, ignoring the so-called sacred religious laws in most nations, but all of that is not enough because poverty and injustices still exist.

Just to give few examples: in a democratic system, people elect their trusted leader to set out the principles of interaction among them, and when they are not happy they may not choose the same leader again. But when all leaders are the same, does it matter whom people elect? Additionally, companies and organisations lobby leaders to change the laws to suit the rich, not the poor or the consumer. Consequently, it is not a real democratic system because capitalism compromises it. While in ecolism’s eco-socio-economic system, the leaders are transparent, and selected if they are able to resist the temptations of bribery from the rich, and are then elected. But, leaders could be voted down and tried for misconduct.

Throughout recent centuries, revolutions have changed whole political systems and principles. In current days, strikes and petitions might cause a policy U-turn, and voting in an election removes a failing political party from power and appoints another. But wealthy organisations still lobby the newly elected political party to do the same thing all over again and tailor laws to suit them, and it does not matter which party is in power. What matters is who is behind that power.

While in ecolism there are no parties, no lobbyists, or influential corporations. Instead, the eco-welfare system influences the laws for the mutual benefit of all.

The conclusions and facts from all the above are that no socio-economic system has so far succeeded altogether in ending poverty in the world, or has enforced full equality and absolute justice for everyone, creating a level playing field between the rich and poor concurrently.

Therefore, I hope that people will follow the new eco-socio-economic system that is fairer to all or at least for the poorest in society. The new utopian eco-socio-economic system does not have to change any current religion or political system, but takes the most vulnerable ones in a society and offers them a fairer lifestyle in an organised utopian eco-city that has its own rules, as a large organisation would have, without conflicting with any current legal system.

Let us have a general comparison between the new ecolism and other socio-economic systems, including religions.
