Empowerment as enablement to live joyfully, sufficiently, and sustainably giving more back than is taken from environment, community, family, and oneself

All human systems should empower the individual and community. Empowerment is defined as enablement to live joyfully, sufficiently, and sustainably giving more back than is taken from environment, community, family, and oneself. Making human systems efficient[1] in terms of enabling the mass of action with minimal friction is one tiny part of the puzzle. Attaining it is most easily accomplished by the disembowelment of the other parts through overreaching laws, absolute enforcement, and lenient rules of judgment with error in guilt assumption as a factored cost. Make no mistake; efficiency of society does not achieve goals of empowerment. Fascism in Nazi Germany, communist experiments of the last century, and the modern confined animal feeding operation compromise on the very essence of what it means to live. No person is a machine and no person can be simplified to the material reality. Man as an individual is infinitely more faceted and complex than the degree possible with any machine. Intrinsic in this is an even more infinite force of existence that links to all life in a way science resoundingly assumes too complex for study. Therefore, efficiency of society through strict obedience to law cannot lead to unilateral individual empowerment in a diverse society.

[1] Efficient here is not used in terms of use of resources, but rather in terms of smooth flow as in a confined animal feeding operation.
