Re: [ox-en] Balancing need and Selbstentaltung by governance?

Hi Stefan & all,

Stefan Merten wrote:
The alternative IMHO is to create an explicit governance scheme where
people are coerced to execute societal necessary tasks as part of
their normal lifes. The big advantage of such an explicit governance
scheme is that it is subject to political decisions. Contrary to blind
automatisms as just outlined political decisions are able to take into
account different situations of people. I think this is something
useful to strive for.

That's not really a different approach from what I describe, but a part of
it. In my book, I refer to it as "flatrate model".

(I doubt that the term "coercion" is a happy or indeed appropriate one for
such situations, but your terminology is your decision.)

Best regards
