Synonym Of Productive
In my own words a productive member of society is an individual who gives back something rather than only taking from society as a whole. It is someone who works, pays their bills, votes, pays their taxes and supports themselves and their family.
A productive member of society is first and foremost responsible for themselves. They take responsibility for their actions and their effect on others, they provide for their own needs and the needs of their offspring. They are respectful of the needs and rights of others and take into consideration the ramifications of their own actions on society as a whole. They provide some benefit to that society via civic participation, voting, tax paying, providing a needed service or goods, and do not expect to receive something for nothing. They value themselves and others and respect freedom of thought and discussion.
Work hard. Obey the laws. Pay your taxes. Donate time and/or money to charity and shut up.
If you love you are productive. If you hate you are destructive. Easy, really!
