Have you ever heard about the rising phenomenon called the "New Normal"?

I am glad that Western economists finally begin to question the so called modern rules of Capitalism after a significant economic crises. As I told you before, the crises begin to launch its benefits. Capitalism never fit human nature. While a very minority of the population lived wealhy, the rest of the whole World was always in a crises because of capitalism.

It is good that the social scientists are asking where the mistake was. Now the are searching of the New Normals.

So what do you think, what is the new normals of the world?

In my opinion, step by step, we approach Kant´s ethic belief or lets say "Ethicism" which basicly propounds " An action which is useful for an individual can only be ethic if that action is not harmful for noone else"

Nothing works Problem is the basic human nature of some people, and the fact that we are all connected to eachother without seeing the results. Some people are just plain evil, and will try to enhance their own lives at the costs of others. This will happen in any system. Other people are not evil, but want the best lives for themselves. If they don´t see the direct result of their actions, they will go on with doing whatever is best for themselves. If everybody saw the Chinese workers living in tiny rooms, working long hours in smelly factories, perhaps they wouldn´t buy the crazy cheap products they produce. However, we may have seen it once on tv, but we are not really confronted with these people, so we just do what is best for us, not what is best for them... in general
