Talk is cheap…Show me the money Jerry!

Only partly true Steve.

If talk and action were completely independent, then your assertion could be true, but they are not.

Talk at its best creates contexts in which we can see new possibilities, and in which we gain new abilities to re-create our maps of this existence we find ourselves in, and thus restructure both our experiential reality and our ability to be creative in our shared reality.

To the degree that doing so raises our awareness that we are all in this together, and that the greatest probability of surviving and flourishing personally comes when we create a set of socially cooperative contexts that reward cooperation and punish cheating on that cooperative (at any level) – and does so neither too harshly nor too leniently, then we all win (it becomes a positive sum game).

To the degree that we allow markets to measure value, we are all at risk, because markets must value the universal abundance of anything at zero or less (and automation allows abundance).
