Framework for an
Emotional Needs Based Soceity

The idea for an ENBS assumes that there are enough material and physical resources in the world. So the focus is on our human emotional needs. The belief is that if the child and teenager's emotional needs are met when they are young, they will naturally create a healthy, sustainable world.

Below is a framework which is under construction - June 2015

Alternative Justice System

Understanding, Helping vs Punishing

"Understanders" vs Judges

Safe to Tell the Truth

Seeking Understanding vs Seeking Guilt

Consideration of Feelings, Emotional Needs

Consideration of Love, Caring, Forgiveness

No "Accused," "Defense," or "Prosecution"

No Age Discrimination

Third Alternative, Restorative Justice,

Alternative Education System

Education about Emotional Needs

Emotional Literacy

Emotionally Intelligent Communication

Meets Emotional Needs of Children and Teens

Education about Emotional Cause and Effect

Education about Invalidation, Emotional Abuse

Education about Dangers of Mind Control

Cooperation vs Competition

Alternative Economic System

Based on concept of "Caring"

Caring about People vs Caring about Money

Social Expenses Paid Voluntarily

Decentralized vs Centralized

Examples of thinking...

"I need help. Can you/will you /do you want to help me?"

"I don't want to pay you. I don't want you to pay me. I want to help you. I want you to help me."

Let's stop paying each other and charging each other and just help each other.

Let's base our relationships on caring and who we care about and who cares about us.

Governments, corporations, universities and schools don't care about us. We need to care about each other. Take care of each other.

People who aren't cared about don't care.

Alternative Belief System

Based on Nature

Healthy/Unhealthy vs Good/Evil; Right/Wrong

Unity, Humanity vs Patriotism, Division

Security Through Mutual Respect, Friendship

Equality vs Authority, Hierarchy

Focus on Needs vs on "Rights"
