...The ‘‘‘categorial progressions’’’ -- the qualitative, non-amalgamative’ ‘‘‘sums’’’ of increasingly thought-concrete, increasingly determinate category symbols -- that we express via equalities using the NQ arithmetic and its algebra:  these we refer to as ‘[dialectical] META-equations.”

We do so because each such unity-to-diversity equating expression is ‘made up out of’, and thus ‘‘‘«aufheben»-contains’’’, a heterogeneous multiplicity of qualitatively different, ontologically different mere equations.

Indeed, they ‘‘‘«aufheben»-contain’’’ one such mere equation for each distinct, consecutive, relevant value of that expressions independent variable -- e.g., s [step number] for a synchronic, presentational dialectic; t [epochal time count] for a diachronic, historical dialectic.”

“Moreover, when each such equation formulates a distinct -- in these cases, a qualitatively distinct, ontologically distinct -- dialectical-mathematical model, then their single meta-equation also formulates a META-model, ‘made up out of a heterogeneous multiplicity of internally-related mere models; ‘‘‘«aufheben»-containing’’’ a heterogeneous multiplicity of such related models.”

“Now, of course, meta-equations do not arise from the NQ arithmetic/algebra alone.”

“For example, the general planular linear equation algebraic equalityy  =  mx + b’, given that its two parameters, m and b, denote ‘‘‘known variables’’’ [relative to the unknowns /variablesx and y] both range over R, the “Real numbers, is a purely”-quantitative meta-equation, ‘made up out of’ a multiplicity of linear mere models.”

Likewise, the ‘«arché»-ic nonlinear differential equation, ‘dx(t)/dt  =  ax(t)’, about which we have spoken before, and will again, is also a purely”-quantitative meta-equation, given that its single control-parameter, a, ‘‘‘modifying’’’ its ‘function-unknown’, x(t), is taken as denoting a ‘‘‘variable parameter’’’, or ‘‘‘parameter variable’’’, e.g., again ranging over R, the “Real numbers, and co-determining the location of its “movable pole” singularity.  This meta-equationis again ‘‘‘contains’’’ a different nonlinear differential equation for each distinct value of a.”

“A characteristic which distinguishes NQ arithmetic/algebra meta-equations from the other kinds of meta-equations noted above is this:  because of the ‘‘‘evolute’’’, «aufheben» nature of the NQ multiplication operation, the categorial progression of each successor equation in an NQ meta-equationcontains all of the category symbol term(s) of all of its predecessor equations, as well as, and non-amalgamatively added-to, the new category symbol term(s) that this successor equation introduces for the first time in this succession.

... The heart of this wisdom of dialectics -- as a better way of thinking than the way of capitalist, modern «dianoia» -- can be summarized quite succinctly.”

Be suspicious of antithesis, of opposition, when it is portrayed as absolute, eternal, irreconcilable duality; as ‘‘‘Manichean’’’ opposition.”

Expect that the opposite kind arose out of that which it now, externally opposes, or will oppose.”
Expect that this opposite kind had its roots and seeds in the kind that it now opposes from without, as, originally, an internalopposition, an opposition acting within that original or earlier kind.”

Expect, also, that opposing kinds have ‘‘‘hybridized’’’, or will eventually ‘‘‘hybridize’’’; that the opposing kinds will, at length, produce, or have already produced, a ‘‘‘complex unity’’’, or ‘‘‘synthesis’’’, perhaps one unnoticed by, or unimaginable to, those still in the throes of «dianoia».”

“Do not let your thought, let alone your action, be trapped in and by supposedly absolute, eternal, radical dualisms     /diremptions...

Genesis of the Concept of ‘Equitism’ as the “Successor System” to Capitalism -- GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.







Genesis of the Concept of ‘Equitism’ as the “Successor System” to Capitalism -- GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.







Dear Readers,



GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES:  The genesis of our F.E.D. concept of ‘Equitism’ as successor system to the present, [state-]capitalist system of political economy [including to state-capitalist pseudo-socialism] was linked to several connotations of this term.  The term ‘Equitism’ has name-resonance with the name of the tradition of “Equitable Jurisprudence” in Anglo-American law.

Growing out of the “Crown Chancery” in England [the Office of the Crown “Chancellor”], there emerged separate courts of equity, or “courts of conscience”, to which appeal could be made from judgments by those courts enforcing common law and statute law when a defendant held that a judgment rendered by such a common law/statute law court, while in accord with “the letter of that law”, represented a morally inadequate remedy, and thus violated “the spirit of the laws”, therefore, per that defendant, failing to deliver “true justice”. 

In the U.S., the two, separate kinds of courts where merged into one, and the convergence of their principles begun, with U.S. courts “presiding in [both] law and equity”, and allowing “equitable” arguments and remedies, as well as “technical” arguments, and [strictly monetary] remedies.  There have been homologous developments in the tradition of Napoleonic/Roman law.

In recent parlance, the term “equitism” is often used to refer to “gender equity”, as a “synthesis”, or “mean”, of feminism and “masculinism”.  It is sometimes also used to name a “synthesis”, or “mean”, between egoism and altruism.  There was, earlier in American history, an individualist “equitist” movement for the amelioration of property rights injustices.

But most importantly, the term “Equitism” is meant to invoke the concept of “Capital Equity”, and the tradition of “Stockholder Democracy” [“one-share-one-vote”] that follows from it. 

“Capital Equity” rights -- rights exclusively reserved to owners of capital [of “capital equity stock”] -- are seen as a “first [and inadequate] species”, but as a first modern seed, of “Economic Democracy”, as distinct from “Political-only Democracy”; are seen as the embryo of a more extensive and all-citizens-inclusive form of “Stakeholder Democracy”, and of ‘Political-ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY’ as a whole.

‘Equitism’ is seen as “generalized social equity”; as “generalizing social equity, to beyond the small class of owners of “controlling shares” of capital equity, to encompass the whole society, including every citizen, by constitutionally endowing each citizen, as a human right, with the ownership of new kinds of equitable “property”.

This “generalization of equity is seen as a remedy For the catastrophic but predictable, “lawful” tendency of capitalist “political-only”, representative democracy, to degenerate into totalitarian, state-capitalist, police-state dictatorship, as capital continually concentrates into ever fewer hands, as we are now seeing so egregiously today.

That concentration of capital-equity ownership eventually enables those “few hands” to prostitute -- to ‘“buy-out”’, in a ‘“hostile takeover”’, via an all-pervasive system of ‘legalized crime’ as ‘‘‘legalized bribery’’’ -- the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of political government.

This ultimate “M&A” will thus totally defeat the constitutional “checks-and-balances” among those three, political, branches, “checks-and-balances” which were constitutionally designed to prevent this degeneration, and that were at least somewhat effective in doing so during the earlier phases of capital accumulation and concentration. 

The ‘Equitist’ reform/revolution is seen as a ‘generalization’ of “Capital Equity”, forming a social ‘genus’ of Equity, by adding, via constitutional amendments, several new, inclusive ‘species’ of Equity, as newly recognized universal constitutional human rights. 

‘Equitism’ is a ‘constitutionalization’ of ‘‘‘stakeholder democracy’’’ -- a ‘constitutional institution-ization’ of ‘‘‘stakeholder democracy’’’.

Social Equity -- Social Justice -- requires ‘Universal Equity’; every-citizen-ownership of three new kinds of equity-property, as a matter of human right.

These new species of equity-property include:

(1) The [collective property] human right of Citizens’ Externality Equity [which can be seen as a collective property implementation of the so-called Coase “theorem”:  decentralized, comprehensive, democratic, ‘grassroots regulation’ of polluters];

(2) The [personal property] human right of Citizens’ Birthright Equity [universal ‘socialized trust-funds’], totally portable, unified social safety nets for each citizen born, serving as a source for monthly guaranteed minimum annual income payments during periods of involuntary unemployment, and;

(3) The [“individual property”] human right of Citizens’ Stewardship Equity [via ‘socialized venture capital’], granting access to means of production to, potentially, every citizen -- to citizens self-organized into democratically self-managed, COMPETING ‘socialized producers’ cooperatives’ that promulgate qualifying business plans, and that successfully enlist a Social Bank, also a Citizens’ Stewardship Equity ‘socialized producers’ cooperative’, to take the risk of backing/funding that business plan. [This conception, of ‘Citizens’ Stewardship Equity’, owes an intellectual debt to the work of David Schweickart]. 

The citizen owners of successful such cooperatives hold their means of production as social property, in stewardship, not in local ownership, and pay a monthly social rent for its use that helps to fund the Citizen Birthright Equity personal Trust Funds of all citizens.  Each citizen co-owner of a successful such cooperative receives two incomes from it:  [possibly unequal, skills-based] compensation for time worked for that cooperative, and an equal share of the net operating surplus of that cooperative.  Continuing capitalist firms will have to compete, for labor-power, with these cooperatives.

The dual incomes earned by Citizen Stewardship Equity producers’ coop co-owners will shift economic power, and social power -- hence political power -- decisively to the working class majority, and out of the “ever fewer hands” of the concentrated, mega-capital ownership plutocracy faction who presently rule globally, and who presently push public policy relentlessly in the direction of a ‘humanocidal’ [“people are pollution”] police state dictatorship.
