Production is to create and Consumption is to destroy. So Production shall flourish and Consumption shall wither. Production shall be stimulated and Consumption shall be taxed.
The society shall favour prosperity and prosperity shall enable wellfare. The end of politics is to offer the electorate wellfare.
The production line ends in consumption, The end of consumption is a big dump. That means that the task of politics is to stimulate production and to cope with the big dump. Thus the beginning of politics is to solve the problem with the big dump without harming the production.
