Whereas

Lack of philosophical clarity and systemic design is identified as the root cause of human suffering.

  1. The existing socio-economic-political system, shaped by capitalism, lacks a clear objective and integrated systems approach in its institutions, resulting in an incoherent design that hinders a harmonious and equitable society.
  2. Philosophical ambiguity in the system design fails to provide a comprehensive purpose and a well-thought out management framework for human co-existence, leading to a focus on individual material accumulation and profit maximization at the expense of social well-being, environmental sustainability, and personal fulfillment.
  3. The lack of a systemic approach in capitalism’s institutional design leads to fragmentation and inefficiencies, perpetuating issues like environmental degradation, wealth inequality, and social injustices. The existing system neglects deeper questions of human purpose and collective well-being, fostering a culture of competition and undermining overall well-being.
  4. Inadequate systems approach prevents us from effectively addressing global challenges such as climate change, poverty, and systemic inequalities, as capitalism is inadequate to address broader societal impacts and lacks a coherent framework for addressing these issues.
  5. To overcome these shortcomings, alternative paradigms should be explored, emphasizing a comprehensive understanding of human flourishing and embracing a systems approach to institution design, with the aim of creating a more equitable and sustainable society.

Therefore, we take the position that

A happiness- and well-being-centric system is a necessary and viable alternative to capitalism.

  1. A system that prioritizes the happiness and well-being of individuals by incorporating decentralized power and public consent is desired.
  2. A new economic model that eliminates money and market exchange and utilizes a planned economy to make goods and services available freely for all, with equal valuation of all professions is desired.
  3. The socio-economic-political design should incorporate systems theory, happiness and well-being philosophy, mathematical and scientific techniques to manage complex societal systems and maximize subjective happiness.
  4. The planning mechanism should allow citizens to input their wants, should be able to analyze the data for meaningful conclusions by various scientific ways, should be able to employ optimal resource management to maximize well-being and should be able adapt to changing preferences, technology, and culture.
  5. Policy making and decision making at every level should be grounded in meaningful data captured by algorithms designed to capture Happiness and well-being to calculate optimal resource allocation and achieve social objectives.
  6. Ultimate power and decision making authority should be decentralized and should always rest with citizens. Although for policy making and administration a leadership council at every administrative level with representatives chosen by the public is effective.
  7. Public consent and control are fundamental principles to a real democracy, with policies and laws requiring citizen consent and transparency in decision-making.
  8. Citizen satisfaction ratings should be utilized to calculate performance ratings of leaders and officials. In this way quality control of goods and services and power decentralization can be implemented. This shall ensure accountability and address issues promptly.
  9. The proposed Happiness centric system offers a comprehensive approach to societal management, prioritizing individual happiness and well-being over profit-driven motives, and empowering citizens to actively participate in decision-making when they choose to.
