More > institutions which underpin a society – it is the glue that holds them together' (Bank, 1999).

the Yin Yang of Capitalism Socialism By W. D. Raymondson
eBook (PDF): $4.50
As we enter a new century, the traditional competition between Socialism and Capitalism, Democrat and Republican is polarizing and becoming ‘Mutually Exclusive’. But does it need to be... More > so? Often, the concept of yin-yang, is used to describe polar opposites and how seemingly contrary forces engage in mutually exclusive competitions in the natural world. Within this paradigm, the common misunderstanding is that they are antithetical and constantly trying to overcome the other. However the Asian paradigm understands that yin-yang is more accurately a complementary relationship because each can only exist in relation to the other... So, in actuality...the Yin-Yang are not so much exclusionary forces, but more like complementary opposites that interact within a greater whole, as part of a dynamic system…and as such neither can exist without the other. …Such is the virtual relationship between Socialism and Capitalism, left and right when they work together symbiotically within a true Democratic Republic.< Less

"Responsible Capitalism—Balancing the Effects of Materialism on Culture, the Environment, and the Potential for Conflict" is an informal paper authored by Stanley W. Morris. Based on... More > an on-going, creative-living project, originally little more than a personal growth experiment, this paper outlines what in 2006 began as a transition to an alternative lifestyle, called Voluntary Simplicity, might now have the potential to offer the greater, global society direct and immediate benefits. The author begins by posing the supposition that the demands of materialism (e.g., natural resources to supply an endless thirst for automobiles, electronics, and frivolous consumption) increase the potential for international conflict. If the above statement can be accepted, and there appears to be enough supportive evidence to make for a good argument in that direction, then the opposite, less materialism, may be a solution, thereby reducing the incidence and/or the severity of future, violent conflicts.< Less
