Conscious capitalism and Raising the Bar of Human Possibility

“For the first time in 10,000 years we have the ability to create a prosperous freedom we need to adopt a human Centric net worth stand in the world the age of freedom is tantalizingly close and powerful forces stand in the way.” –James Arbib, RethinkX

There’s a whole new world waiting to be built. An extraodrinary future for humanity.

A new kind of world with a new kinder world.  A world of conscious capitalism. A capitalism of passion,  n order to create an capitalism vibrant with the power of something that has to seize the heart of every CEO, VP, manager, and mailroom worker-the power to care, the power to feel the emotions of the people you serve, and the power to feel your own emotions in new ways.

By Howard Bloom, James Arbib, and Steven Jay

Capitalism is partially brain-dead today.

Its group IQ is low…and so is its collective creativity. The reason? Corporate business needs to find its heart and soul. More specifically you and I have to move up a notch or two. We have to use a capacity in our daily work that only saints have previously been required to possess–something whose facets we’ll explore in future episodes. Celebrated Author and Publicist to many stars calls it “Tuned Empathy.”

Our civilization is under attack. But many of us don’t want to defend it. Why?

There’s a void in our sense of meaning.

We’ve been told that the “the Western System” is one in which the rich stoke artificial needs to suck money, blood, and spirit from the rest of us. We’ve been told that the barons of industry work overtime to turn us from sensitive humans into consumers-mindless buyers listlessly watching TV while growing obese on the artificial flavors, chemical preservatives, and the cheap sugars of junk food. And some of that is true.

But the problem does not lie in the turbines of the Western Way of Life-it does not lie in industrialism, capitalism, pluralism, free speech, and democracy.

The problem lies in the lens through which we see.

We are about to see what’s under our noses-a set of moral imperatives and of heroic demands that are implicit in The Western Way of Life. We are about to see our magic, our gifts, and our utopian capacities.

It is time for the Passionate to come out to play.

We’re about to see that we’re saviors who must wake up to our powers. Consumerism—that wretched sin—isn’t what it seems. Nor are salesmanship, cashflow, profits, and marketing. This book’s upcoming glide through the history of Western civilization is a re-telling that hints at the rich ore beneath the slopes and plains of our history’s terrain.

We’re about to see the emotional substance in what we’ve mistakenly labeled with a dehumanized vocabulary, the language of clods, lumps, stones, and numbers—the language of “materialism,” “commodification,” “consumerism,” “derivatives,” “utility maximization,” “quarterly profits,” “products,” “markets,” and “supply and demand.”

The Capitalism of Passion and the upgrade it can generate in our daily lives and in the place we work each day offers those of us who are emotionally starved a solid meal—the exuberance of satisfying others, the exhilaration of feeling wanted, the elation of creativity, and the knowledge that we’ve contributed to something far, far bigger than ourselves.

By reinventing capitalism and injecting our own souls in the machine, we can raise the bar of human possibility.

Let’s do it together. Join Us.
