The Definition and the Determination of Value: A Forbidden Truth Dissection

What is value? How must it be defined within the parameters of Truth? How must it be judged and determined? I have addressed this issue as part of other brilliant essays, but not to the depth or degree that the issue warrants. This topic deserves to have an entire essay devoted to it, and so it shall be.

Value /ˈvalyo͞o/: 1: An objective and emotionally dispassionate internal judgment of the personal importance or beneficial nature of a specific object, artifact, service, idea, or experience, based upon legitimate need.

I am only providing this singular definition, because there is no need to go further. To go further will only muddy the water, sowing confusion and lack of understanding. This is the definition that must be completely understood and accepted, by anyone who wishes to break free of the immense definitional brainwashing attached to this word, by all 21st century societies and governments.

Absorb these Truths, and you might come to understand.

First lie of society and government: The determination of value must and will always be subjective. No! The opposite is True. All determination of value must always be consciously objective. Yes, there can and will be variability from individual to individual, in determining within his own Self-universe what is of value to him, and the degree this value attains. But variability and subjectivity are completely different.

To judge the value of something subjectively, is to allow personal bias and prejudice and emotional desire, as well as external influences such as popularity, rarity, and commercial promotion, to invalidly distort the personal perception of the value of a thing or a service. This distorted value perception directly translates to distorted value judgment, which destroys all individual capacity to apply fair, accurate, and Truth-based valuation to objects and services.

Objective value judgment, carried out within the framework of analytical and intellectual consciousness, compromises and sabotages the capacity of society and government to distort and manipulate valuation.

Second lie of society and government: The value of objects and services can and should be externally determined, via “markets”, and I am not referring here to the stock, bond, futures, or other “gambling” markets, but rather, to the so-called “fair market rate”, “fair market value”, by which goods and services derive standard and usual monetary pricing.

A house can cost $200,000.00, but a banana cannot. A banana can cost .69 cents, but a house cannot. But why? It is because of the perverse and invalid external construct of “market value”. Market value is established via the deliberately malicious manipulation and distortion of value, carried out by governments and corporations deploying money, an inherently worthless and artificial construct of government.

“The market” represents not fair value, but the distortion and the manipulation of fair value. Why? Specifically because it is externally controlled and determined, via the use of money, a valueless construct. Within Truth, legitimacy, and sanity, all value, of everything, must be internally determined, Self-determined, based solely upon objective analysis of need, which will vary greatly from one moment in time to the next.

If you have not eaten anything for three days and are starving and unable to obtain anything to eat, the fair valuation of a banana to you, is much greater than .69 cents. If you already and currently possess a house where you can go to anytime you need to obtain shelter from the elements and personal privacy and storage for your belongings, the fair valuation of a house to you, is much less than $200,000.00.

So here you see why all external valuation is foundationally and fundamentally wrong, and should never be allowed to occur.

Value can only be legitimately determined via internal, personal need, with such need allowing for “fair market” exchanges of goods and services, based upon, and solely upon, such internal need.

The third lie of society and government: Money, monetary currency, specifically the pricing of goods and services via monetary currency, can and is being used as a legitimate way to determine value. No! Of course not! Money is inherently, intrinsically, functionally useless and worthless. It is a universal human slave shackle. It is the conduit by which humanity moved from the universal slavery of the whip and the chain, the honest ownership and commercial trafficking of human beings characterized by the roman empire and the kidnapping of africans by the european invaders of north amerikkka, to the cloaked and dishonest universal slavery of classism and capitalism.

Money can never be used to legitimately set or determine value, because it is valueless.

Money can be used to distort all legitimate value, to artificialize all valuation, thereby making it impossible for goods and services to be properly exchanged. Money can be used to compel body and mind slavery from all of humanity, by positioning it as the only conduit to personal survival and commercial exchanges of value. And this is exactly what money is being used to do, by every society and every government on planet earth, here in the 21st century.

The complete and absolute eradication and elimination of all monetary currency, is the only way to break the genocidal chokehold and death grip held, literally and figuratively, upon each and every human being on earth, by the malicious construct that is government.

The fourth lie of society and government: Want, as well as need, are both legitimate and primary forces that an individual should utilize to determine the value of goods and services. No! Want and need are fundamentally different.

Need, only need, and not want, is the only legitimate determiner of value. Personal need, internally analyzed and judged, absent all external distortional forces. Want is a psychological state of mind that lacks all stability and cannot be grounded within the analytical standards that must be deployed, in order to accurately determine value on a personal, individual basis.

I am not suggesting nothing should ever be wanted. Want is a perfectly legitimate human mindset that can exist harmoniously within a sane and Superior mind. What I am declaring, very emphatically and absolutely, is that want must not, must never, be used by the individual specifically to determine the value of any good or service.

Inferiors will say, “Well, what is the real difference between want and need? If I want something, don’t I need it?? I feel like I need it, because I want it..” Idiots! Repair your broken brains, that is a very real need, something you don’t want, but really need, to do.

The fifth lie of society and government: Corporations possess intrinsic and inherent value, both in the present moment and going forward into the future, that can and should be realized via external investment of monetary assets via stock, bond, futures, and other equities/securities exchanges, as well as private venture capital investment. No!

We have already established that money itself must be completely eradicated from existence, in order for the valuation of goods and services to be legitimately determined. But still, the issue of corporate valuation and equity trading must be addressed. A “corporation” is nothing more than a group of humans banding together to leverage their mental or/or physical skills, and their numbers, for the purpose of creating goods or services more efficiently and rapidly than any singular individual might be able to do.

The corporation itself has no intrinsic value! All existing value comes from the individual contributions of each member of the corporation. To apply valuation to the corporation is to negate the value of each individual, and even more primarily, to create an artificial power base by which the corporation can leverage itself to the detriment of other individuals and the competitive process.

All currency-based stock, bond, futures, equities, securities markets are ponzi schemes. Along with the eradication of money, all such markets must be declared fraudulent and criminal enterprises.

Yes, corporations can, should, and will continue to exist, under a Universal Barter and Trade economic system. But their value can and will only be derived from the actual goods and services they create, not from any passive investment of something worthless like money, and not from any artificial, speculative projections of what the corporation might create in the future.

And yes, individuals would still be able to “invest” in corporations. How? By directly contributing goods, services, intellectual capital, to the corporation, as personal exchange for goods and services either directly created by the corporation, or obtained by the corporation via exchanges with other individuals or corporations. But all currency-based valuation and pricing, all use of money as a way to try to extract more money via “equity trading”, must end.

The sixth lie of society and government: Scarcity of a specific object or service is a valid criteria for applying valuation to the object or service. No! This perverse pathology of reason must end! Gold is not valuable because its supply might be limited. An original Pablo Picasso painting is not valuable because it is unique. A Full Force Frank, Singin’ Dose Anti-Psychotic Blues zine is not valuable because I only created 200 of them back in 1989 and so they are very rare.

Rarity, scarcity, or uniqueness of any object, substance, or service, must never be allowed to serve as criteria in determining value. To do so is an open invitation to distortion, and the application of illegitimate valuation based upon want, as well as malicious external manipulation of value.

The seventh lie of society and government: Popularity of a specific good or service, may or should warrant the application of higher valuation to that good or service. No! The popularity or the pervasiveness of any specific good or service should never be allowed to play any role in the valuation of that good or service.

Because, as I have already made clear, all valuation must be internally determined, based upon need. It IS completely possible that a popular good or service may be very valuable to you, because it meets a specific need you have, better than other goods or services. But the actual fact of it’s popularity cannot be a legitimate factor in judging its value.

The eighth lie of society and government: The complexity, time, manpower, and/or economic resources required to create a specific object or provide a specific service, warrant the application of a specific minimal valuation, and/or a specifically premium valuation, for that object or service. No! Just because something is very difficult and time-consuming to make, grants it absolutely no intrinsic value.

Those who choose to manufacture such objects, should not enjoy the free pass of premium valuation. Perhaps such objects should simply not exist, if they are not legitimately needed via internal and unbiased determination?

Should the Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta car, monetarily priced at $2.2 million usd, exist? It is a vehicle providing road transportation from one location to another, and such vehicles can be obtained used, for less than $1,000.00 usd.

The Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta takes longer to create than the Toyota Corolla, and it has specific functional details that the Toyota Corolla lacks, but it serves the exact same function: Transport of a small number of human beings from one location to another, via a ground-based motor, able to function only upon asphalt/concrete roadways.

If the value of objects and services were judged within rationality and Truth, as I have outlined in this essay, would the Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta have come to exist? Is it possible to justify a monetary valuation of $2.2 million, versus a monetary valuation of $1,000.00, for two objects that provide the exact same service, that function identically? I would argue that only because of the perverse distortional force of money, combined with the insanity of humanity, can such an object come into existence.

The ninth lie of society and government: The more objects and services that exist within the human universe of perceived choice, the better. No! No, no, no, no. no! Here we come to the perverse human worship of maximized “productivity”, being a vital and sacred barometer of economic health. Idiots! The opposite is True. The more economically productive a society is, the more enslaved and oppressed every single human within the society, is guaranteed to be.

Economic productivity should be minimized, not maximized. Nobody needs 500 different car models to choose from. What is needed is a car, one car, at most, to facilitate personal movement. Does this mean, under my Universal Barter and Trade Economic System, that there would only be one car model, made by one company?? No, of course not! There might well be more manufacturers than there are now, but making far fewer cars in number, as the corporate monopoly is destroyed.

But almost certainly there would be less “luxury” models than there are today, because government would no longer be able to deploy the external, distortional force of money to manipulate valuation.

Productivity would be minimized, even as all individual human needs must and would always be met, because the illegitimate construct of want, rather than need, would no longer be allowed to play any significant role in determining how individuals value objects or services.

Okay, I’m about done here. But…I think I hear something…It sounds like an explosion…
