Re: [ox-en] There is no such thing as "equal exchange" - respect instead of money

Giving and getting recommendations (or respect) in a reciprocal or
generalized exchange is an ancient common social practice.  I can recommend
you if you recommend me back, or I can recommend you without expecting that
you recommend me back. This is a common social practice and can happen as a
reciprocal exchange or as a generalized (non-reciprocal) exchange.

Someone who is highly political can accumulate a lot of so-called "respect"
without having any moral or intellectual merit.

Try to solve that!

i.e. how do you ensure that respect in society flows not based on political
favoritism but based on rational thought.

My idea was to always have the respect coupled to the action it was given
for; your example is a disadvantage of the respect systems that we have now,
where the motivation for paying respect can become very irrational. Having
the respect together with the reason it was paid for would allow me to
evaluate my personal respect to that person based on my personal standards.
However, i have no idea how this could be implemented practically.
