The following views on the philosophy of 'Purpose' arose during a conversation elsewhere.
The Inherent Equality & Interdependency of Capital, Labor & Leadership.
It is commonly accepted that aristocrats have money, or lacking that then they have influence within the moneid crowd.
Continuity of purpose and self-worth are closely associated with the direction one takes in one's life, and the purpose and directionof one's life are influenced by counsel.
Recognition of the relationship between capital, labor, leadership and wise council could be the determining factor for the success or failure of any venture, and the resulting sense of self-worth that success or failure brings.
Capital is merely 'Potential' in the absence of labor and leadership; Labor is merely potential in the absence of leadership and capital.
Capital consults the services of an architect in the construction of an edifice, not that of an actor or policeman; and the anology is pertinent in the construction of a successful web-site with return on investment and accompanying satisfaction of self-worth and purpose.
The architect is a leader and in the position of leader for a successful web-site venture I propose we consult with experts that have met with success in the field of buisiness, not law or entertainment; and on the list of prospective candidates not the least would be that of Swami, in my opinion.
Labor can aspire to riches thru ability but whether that endows labor with the qualities of an aristocrat remains open to question, but it most certainly endows labor with the qualities an aristocrat can use, those of riches and/or leadership.
Any kid has the potential to be an Opah Winfrey or Ted Turner, and their success doesn't impart any superiority for themselves over the people and forces that contributed to their placement. And so it is in the acceptance of interdependency that we recognize our equality with any person on the planet and with any position they may hold.
capital is a priviledge - no? I have some concern about assigning and withdrawing priviledge, and the duty of a legal justice system and government that ensures basic rights to all, and manages or adjusts priviledge on a per person basis.
