CRYOGOVERNANCE - the State of the Future

Updated on April 4, 2017

People are always interested in the origins of the esoteric. But so far no one could hit the bull's eye. He is trying to fill that gap

What do we see?

Yes, we are certainly noticing, human societies, say countries, are everywhere in disarray. We instantly attribute this, either to leaders, or to the people, or to certain abstract causes like, religion or language. Naturally, I think, the state, or its constitution should have been the first suspect, being the entity in disarray. We have bothered to correct everything except that!

We try different forms of government, but the disarray seems to invade every form. We let those in governance change, so also the constitution of people. Sometimes people plan this, and many a time against their will. The best of creation is always with the worst of governance.

It is in the Syatem!

To make sense of this, let us try to understand the present arrangement of human society.

What we have now is exclusive power for the state, to collect money from the society, explicitly as tax. State then serves the society, whether the society asks for it or not. State asks the people to pay tax, whether people are ready or not. People then struggle with taxes, looks for ways to escape, and they succeed in lessening their burden to some extent. State then finds itself with fresh wants, and legislates for more tax. This is a vicious circle, to say the least. I think we need to think of a new way of governing ourselves, especially the way we meet the state’s expenses.

Why Disarray?

What is important is to note that, here, all have their parts well defined. The state’s part, of collecting taxes and delivering various kinds of services to the people, and the people’s part, of paying taxes and enjoying services rendered by the state, are so designed that if done properly, all will be in perfect equilibrium. (I think this idea about the state originated along with other ideas of similar vein – like perpetual motion machine, synthesis of gold etc. We are still going ahead with such notions as far as the state goes, though all other ideas have become nothing but academic curiosities.) Thus we have a society, expected to be in peace and harmony with each other, for perpetuity. But like the romantic story of the perpetual motion machine, that doesn’t happen. Either the state fails in providing services and accusing insufficient collection of taxes as the culprit, or the people unhappy with their life and accusing exorbitant taxes as the cause, takes place constantly. Last many centuries or more we are continuously living with this. It seems, the idea of ‘state’ has already outlived its original life.

Cryogovernance

Why we can’t think about a change? Imagine a society with no taxes of any nature. The state charges a price for the services it renders. As one can easily see, those who are on the higher ends of income, or those of a higher standard of living are the ones using more of such services. This then has the potential to distribute the cost of governance in a more equitable manner, which is, in more or less true proportion, to those availing the facilities provided by the government. Also, the pricing can be made to suit the doctrines of the society, enabling the government in its favorite pastime of the present, distributive justice.

The benefits from such a form of government are immense. There will be huge reduction in the size of governmental machinery, and a great decrease in the cost of governance. The additional revenue thus available for peoples’ welfare can then be directed to many imaginative and farsighted schemes. More people can now devote their ability to gainful, productive activities, making life more comfortable. Additionally, increasing the velocity of transactions many fold with consequential increase in society’s wealth, this has the potential to strengthen the means of government to a comfortable level. And this wealth can now flow back to the society as improvements to infrastructure, further adding to the opportunities of gainful vocations.

Perhaps like cryobiology, cryosurgery or cryogenic treatment, all of which offers unparalleled advantage and giving one, the edge in the competition against manufacturing costs, product superiority, as well as process outcome, the proposed system of governance can be called ‘cryogovernance’.

The Expected Gains

This can meet the aspirations of the coming generations and become the government of tomorrow. Just like the cryo… series of technologies opening up many new vistas for science, education, research, etc., a new form of government can lead to a whole new bunch of opportunities. Generation of revenue, various duties and responsibilities of the state, provision of governmental services, and new vistas of national security may be only some of these.

I think that will make us more ‘future ready’.

Do you Agree?

Governments' failure is Systemic
