IDEXX Becomes First Corporation to Exploit Maine’s Global Corporate Welfare Act

IDEXX Becomes First Corporation to Exploit Maine’s Global Corporate Welfare Act
I am now publishing on Medium, a place where over 10000 writers from around the world contribute, and where there are many publications to which one can submit one's work, or create one's own publication.

Readers can follow writers and publications. By so doing one creates a personally curated network  displayed in a section on Medium's home page,

There is original writing on every topic, from cooking to quantum physics. Many well known magazines are on Medium, At five dollars a month it is a good bang for the buck.

I have been accepted as a writer for three publications to date,

The Start Up is the most active Media publication,
Be Unique, which is a smaller and growing publication, and
Dialogue & Discourse, my favorite Media publication, thus far.

As I joined Medium was undergoing a policy change whereby writer compensation is no longer built on applause, but on the time readers who have a $5.00 a month membership to Medium spend reading one's posts. It has to be the paid membership because that is the source of the income distributed to writers. I have spend a decade in uncompensated independent research reported here on this blog as I developed my own writing skills. Now since our business no longer has a production, (which I intend to get back), I need to develop another stream of income. This will probably take a while on Medium, where some writers are pulling in a high end income, but I think I have what it takes. If you have been following this blog, or even just new to it, you can support my writing and research by joining Medium and following me.

Since Medium requires that every article be unique and published in one place only, that means I have to do the same thing here. I think that is a good policy which will encourage more thoughtful writing, which I am all for. Since my time is limited, I am posting the links to my Medium articles, which I might have formerly posted here, featuring the posts that specifically relate:

The Writer and the Activist Meeting At the Intersection

My latest article for Medium's Discourse and Dialogue sets the foundation for what I intend to tell in this venue. 

 I am old enough to say that the future is now, by which I mean that the world we live in now was the science fiction of my youth. Medium is very expressive of how the contemporary now culture in which now is only now and not also the future, views the world. This is a generation in which globalism is a fact of life everywhere. To some degree that makes me fit right in since I always took "think global, act local" as a practicing reality. This post is about the danger of using outmoded terms to identify what no longer exists.

It’s Not “Capitalism vs Socialism, It’s “Free Market Economy vs Wealth Redistribution Economy"

Thank You for supporting my new venture on Medium, a very interesting place for writers and readers.

An Incomplete Theory of Inflation Made to Order for Mass Consumption.

M oney is not what it used to be, so must our ways of thinking about it adapt. jaakko-kemppainen-unsplash The message treads across the media terrain, beating louder and louder as if to drown out the beat of the distant drummer. W arning! The only thing the stimulus will stimulate is inflation. The people will pay as the wealthy elite invests their windfalls in financial assets. Doom and gloom set to march across the land to the beat of the distribution of stimulus funds. In recent years as past predictions of fiscal disaster following stimulus spending failed to materialize and so the thinking about national debt and deficits has evolved, most noticeably with the development of  Modern Monetary Theory .

Tweet This: Government As a Secret Society The response to my informal suggestion that public accessibility to government could be improved by making information available in a searchable data base ( see previous post) subjectively confirmed that the  functioning power elite of Maine's economic development programs and policies are both intentional in instituting a political ideology that supersedes the will of the people, as expressed in the Maine State Constitution, and deceptive towards the general public. 1.Information made available on an agency website but not in a searchable database format may not provide the research and investigative tool needed by the public. The Freedom of Access Act does not require that public information be posted online in any particular format, just that public records be made available. While there is a strong argument for increasing the accessibility and usefulness of information, there is no current requ

What is the Meaning of “Capitalism” and Other Out-Moded Terms?

 Time for a Language Upgrade? wonderlane-unsplash In the Beginning: The true history of eleventh-century civilization is a source of inspiration for contemporary apocalypse dramas. After five centuries of living in danger and uncertainty, walls were built around the town, so that the populous could focus on living rather than surviving. The church was the center of the community, attracting fairs, incorporating a marketplace and theatre, into its orbit. Technology had not developed to the stage that it required concentrated capital beyond the means of the ordinary citizen or town, creating an egalitarian society with a locally based economy in which wealth was created through production. Artisans and tradespeople typically made up four-fifths of the town populace. In the beginning, the economy grew through the activity of industrious producers before merchants gained dominance. Barter was the currency of exchange. And so I wondered, does the early medieval society qualify as a capital
