Well, that contradicts what you said above, namely, "The ultimate producer of the wine is not GEM or me it's either nature or God." There, you're contrasting "GEM or me" with "nature."Belindi wrote: ↑January 23rd, 2022, 3:33 pm
You misunderstand what I intend by "nature". Nature includes everything that naturally is the case . Nature is not to be conflated with what is not man-made but includes what is man-made. Nature is to be contrasted with supernature or God, and is that which is explained by a deterministic causal system.
Ok. So how does that bear on the question regarding who has "shares" in the wine?Wine and all other products of human labour are either natural or miraculous. I presume that you too think of production as natural not miraculous. All human labour has to harmonise with seasons, terrain, level of civilisation, weather, and available technology and it's constraints such as those that cause the gross production of a man or a society to be finite.
That meme, though currently popular and endlessly (and thoughtlessly) recited, is false. There are no limits to economic growth, other than the (current) limits on human populations and thus the human talents and imagination that produce it. There may be limits on how much of a particular product can be produced with the currently available resources and technology, but does not limit economic growth. Human talents and imagination will just replace those resources and that technology with newer (and usually better) ones, and growth will continue.Economic growth is limited by what's sustainable.
If by a "level playing field" you mean equal talents, strengths, ambitions, interests, motivations, etc., you're quite right. That is not the case with any species of plants or animals. Some tadpoles swim faster than others, some fir trees grow taller than others, some leopards are better hunters than others. That is just a fact of nature, and as with all other natural phenomena it has no moral significance. What does have moral significance is that, despite those differences, all humans, except young children and persons with certain disabilities, are equally moral agents, and not the masters or slaves of anyone else. They all have equal moral status.You are too optimistc about human nature.The playing field has never been level and never will be.
