3.4. Art & culture

Elze's picture

Art has a rebalancing and binding function in the individual and society. To give each individual - on the condition of not damaging them­selves and others – the op­por­tu­ni­ty to evaluate, correct, evolve and stabilize in a artistic way and this to cultivate in their own way, art and culture becomes weekly an eco­no­mi­cal shared position and ti­me-im­ple­men­ta­ti­on.

3.4.1. Art

Artistically acting is both personally and socially invaluable. Art is the bridge between mental [sensory] and physical [mo­tor] work-activities. Art combines in a creative way senses [mind] and materials [body]. It makes the senses alert, the mind con­tem­pla­ti­ve and the body relaxed active. Therefore is being creative an in­dis­pen­sa­ble link between men­tal and physical pursuits. Mentally, creative and physically pursuits form the three dimensions of 'I want'- men­tal­ly, 'I can' – creative and 'I do' – physically, col­lec­ti­ve­ly represented as the trinity 'I am'.... the fourth di­men­si­on.

To give arts the place it deserves, there will be two days a week to shape the arts in their own way. In this manner six days can economically be fulfilled, knowing, two days of brainwork, two days of cre­a­ti­ve work and two days of manual work. On the seventh day, people can integrate this trinity in peace and quiet phi­lo­so­phi­cal­ly.

Contacts, information and training, cooperation and creations are integral regulated

  1. Through village-centres and main art sites on the Internet are contacts and cooperation regulated.

3.4.2. Culture

Culture is a by individuals and groups created set of rules and habits, reflected in daily schedules, design, activities and creations. Every man is entitled to his or her own rules and habits, provided they are not injurious to them­sel­ves and others.

The cultural heritage makes lifestyle, viewpoint and creations of people from the past visible. The cultural he­ri­tage is of historic value which has to be handled carefully. It gives posterity insight into the mindsets, pitfalls and tra­di­ti­ons of the past and a wealth of creations.

The danger of rules and habits is that they tend to lead their own life. What first gave peace and order becomes compulsive and dictatorial. Then it turns out that it's no longer the human who creates and directs the rules and habits,  but the reverse: man is created and directed thanks to rules and habits. To avoid that man is the victim of his or her own creations, vigilance is required. Rules and habits are personal and time-bounded and need to be reviewed, recalibrated and re-aligned constantly with the rules and customs of others. Self-determination at all ti­mes pre­ce­des for the pre­ser­va­tion of cultural traditions. It follows that others relationally, intellectually, eco­no­mi­cal­ly or culturally manipulate, inin­ti­mi­da­te, brainwash or force lifestyles and viewpoints out of the past and/or present to take over, is damaging for the freedom of every person and thus inadmissible.

The UN/government is the, by the citizens designated, authority to ensure that the rules and habits of individuals and cultures no robotic jack produces in his own thinking-box. It will ensure that the rules and habits do no harm both, on the short and long term, to individuals and groups. Citizens are the designees to ensure that the rules and habits of the UN/government and/or others, do no harm and the UN/government and each other pointing out when that happens.
