The current state of disease within our world-system of money – read Capitalism - is the manifested consequence of who/ what we have accepted and allowed ourselves to be and become as  a mind that has used and abused the physicality of the Earth and degraded it to the state of fuel and assets within a makeshift profiteering system, which exists due to our desires and delusional ideals of becoming ‘more’ and ‘more powerful’ in an existence that is already whole in itself.

 

The foundation of this schizoid reality stems from  enabling the ability to create money out of thin air, set rules that only benefit the ones that  created  ‘the game’ in the first place; then educate the masses and letting them  ‘know’ – blindly believe – that ‘we live in a “democracy” where the real power is in your pocket, allowing us to simply go and consume something that will temporarily satisfy your senses, leaving a sedating energetic ‘comfort’ that we then call ‘having a good time.’ Nothing but chemical and physical reactions that we have become addicted to – yet this single experience to be and become ‘more’ has driven ourselves to kill, abuse and neglect the obvious disregard of life in the name of our personal satisfaction. That’s our current economic, social and political system where no human integrity or  life consideration exists.

 

The least thing we’ve placed any form of attention to is the fact that we have been  putting on a price tag upon life and ourselves. We have become so robotic and living in an ‘auto-pilot-mode’ that it has become usual to see apples with stickers on them, seeing it as ‘normal’ to realize that every single fruit on this Earth becomes a product the moment it leaves the tree; while in physical reality, the fruits are born and given unconditionally – no barcodes attached.

 

It is true: we’ve made of the unconditional life substance a ‘fruit of evil’ through placing a price tag on it: we’ve sold life in the name of our personal reward which is our current capitalist system – a make-believe system wherein we have accepted and allowed rules and regulations that we  left to be ‘reviewed’ by ‘specialists,’ which implies that each one of us neglected our responsibility toward our world while believing that people in the position to do so, would look after the best interests of all. We were wrong – yet we also rejoiced in the comfort of having someone else ‘doing the job’ for us, and in that: we are all equally responsible for the current outflows of an evidently corrupted system that reveals the nature of a human being that has been moved by the desire to ‘get more’ every time, and neglect life all the way. This implies that: there is no one else to blame but ourselves.

 

· Let’s look at the following comment:

· So, just like religion, equal money is essentially a faith system. From what I have read it is potentially even worse as it grants everyone a right to have everything which in a finite system such as ours is not even possible.

· I don’t condone market enterprise as humanity’s future prosperity and attempts at ‘equalisation’ will fail as humans are not equal on many levels. I want a socio-economic structure that provides a high standard of living and promotion of excellence with respect for all. mrjonno

 

As we’ve read in the introduction, we already live in a make-believe and essentially faith-based system wherein money has become equal to the representation of god that decides who lives and who starves. No value currently existent within the capitalist system has any form of physical correlation to the actual physicality of life that we are measuring; life is one single value= itself. ‘Value’ is a concept that was created for the specific purpose of only differentiating and structuring reality according to a hierarchical system, which implies the obvious inequality and abuse just by looking at the shape/ form it creates.

 

What the person is suggesting is that granting everyone the ability to live in dignity cannot possibly be a reality in this world – why? Because the concepts of scarcity have been brilliantly coined in order to justify sudden inflations and other market-tactics to instigate fear and ricing prices as a ‘necessary measure’ from it, while entire stocks of such ‘scarce products’ may be sitting in warehouses somewhere in an ‘undisclosed location.’ Scare tactics of scarcity is the tool to justify the absolute negligence to consider that All human beings Must have Equal Access to the resources on Earth. Through this, we will be actually able to decide upon policies to protect the absolute extinction of fauna and flora species that are usually the ones that suffer the consequences of an unequal system wherein their lives are rather well-paid for once they’re dead.

 

If we look at the physicality of our own body, there is no organ or part of the entire body that is ‘the most important,’ nor do they vote to delegate all the responsibility to a single organ, tissue or group of cells to ‘take care of the body’s functionality’ – No. Each part holds their responsibility from birth to death – that’s what ensures the proper life of any organism. Any over-growth creates cancer – and any lack of equal distribution of nutrients creates illness and disease that will also lead to death if the problem is not detected and corrected on time.

 

Why have we become so obsessed with ‘becoming more’ and essentially seeking to be our own cancer in the system? The mind’s desire to ‘be powerful’ is an energetic-driven sensation that is costing us our very existence – why? Because all desires have been conveniently engineered to be linked to buying/ consuming and the accumulation of wealth.  Now multiply this constant desire by 7 billion and you get a worldwide crisis wherein a point of control had to be implemented, or else we would have driven ourselves to absolute destruction long time ago. This is minus the millions that can barely move or think due to their obvious state of sever and acute malnutrition, caused by being the residual manifestation of the rest of the world seeking to have ‘all the power,’ or at least spend an entire lifetime chasing after it without a question on the effects of such prolonged application in reality.

 

The point about human beings ‘not being equal’ has emerged ever since we began promoting the Equal Money System and exploring Equality as ourselves back in 2008. All the reasons and justifications stem from viewing and understanding ‘the human’ as a social, economic and political entity that has lost any form of physical-life value/ consideration, becoming  just another commodity in the system of which his identity -  life or general sense of belonging – has been part of the metastasis that developed through the acceptance of the rules of the system, wherein life is sold and must be ‘earned’ and not given unconditionally to All.

 

The examples usually given to justify such ‘difference’ between human beings are creating a comparative study of people living in first and third world countries, which implies that their economical activities will differ according to the environment and remuneration they obtain in a particular currency that is limited by default according to the ‘greater system,’ wherein all economies are kept under control by organisms specifically set/ staged to present a sense of ‘organization and control’ to  the benefit of all, which is only by name because there has never ever been a single organization that could present a complete overhaul to the system to create an entire new-structure that provides equal access to the Earth’s resources for all individuals,  using money as a single tool valued upon Life itself – in Equality – and a such, act as a the tool that Economy in its very etymology should have always been.

 

Thus the current inequality lived in this world is the cause of an inherently fixed economic system that supports the interests of those that set the rules as ‘laws’ and ‘principles’ compiled in a sophisticated and authoritarian doctrine such as Economy, which has become the key to unlock the actual treasures of all the arbitrary means in which life has been made the ultimate commodity at the benefit of those that own the Monetary System in fact.

 

By equalizing the rights to live a dignified living and establishing them as a birth-right: a new human being will emerge, be shaped and educated within a supportive environment, as the generations to come will learn to live in a world where life is the only value that is unconditionally given. This implies that we also hold a relationship with life to extract, produce/ manufacture, transport and distribute such goods, which won’t imply another buy/sell and earn profit type of activity because: there will be no need to ‘earn more’ if you have access to it all by mere virtue of being alive.

 

Of course, to walk this process into reality: we require extensive education to remove the basic conditions that we have become so used to living as not being willing to ‘move’ if you can ‘have it all,’ yet it is and will be a matter of creating self-willed individuals that understand what being born in this world really means.

No more feeding the holy-immaculate position we’ve given to money, which is what has become a desire in itself other than living, which is ludicrous as it implies that we rather ‘have power’ than any form of quality-living as real interactions with beings in our reality. We will do and are already walking the process of Equalization as Life at Desteni. We also understand that it is rather difficult to become Self-Honest in a world wherein we have become so used to only feeding our minds more and more every time, always seeking that accepted and allowed ‘pursuit of happiness’ through dirty tricks that is leading us to an actual physical depletion and obliteration of the Earth’s resources, just to keep our merry-go-round lives in place.

 

The Equal Money System is the way to ensure that life is once again respected, honored and most importantly LIVED in its fullest expression.

 

We have resorted to surrogate lifestyles wherein we become characters that buy and consume specific things to satisfy that role wherein all that we do is constantly ‘seek’ to be satiated with how well we play our character toward a purpose that was not inherent – and is not required – to who we are as a physical body that breathes, no. This is the result of  a system wherein we have sold life in the name of Money.

 

However within this all it is important to realize that: money in itself is not ‘evil,’ it is the rules and regulations we’ve created money through that are revealing our inherent nature that desires to always win; we are as the magnificence of the physical body that we have ever barely taken the time to look at and realize how everything that we are currently ‘striving for’ would be supposed to maintain and sustain ourselves alive – however, life has ceased to exist the moment that we separated ourselves from being whole and instead, agreed upon becoming there automated robots seeking to always satisfy a mind that is able to imagine these various scenarios of perfect ‘blissful happiness,’ which has been deliberately imprinted to fuel the fire that keeps this entire world-system turning: our desires become the driving force to abuse and do whatever it takes to obtain that personal glory and satisfaction.

That’s who we have become.

The only obstacle is our own ego as knowledge and information = we are focusing on working to eradicate the basic beliefs and perceptions of separation in each individual – that’s stopping all the inner conflict of perceived antagonism that only exists as a concept/ idea and belief in our minds. Therefore, if we want respect, consideration, human integrity and a consolidation of a society that is able to trust each others as equals, we invariably have to begin with ourselves – and that is the process of Self Honesty, Self Forgiveness and Self Corrective Application wherein we can take Responsibility for ourselves as the  system that is absolutely pending from a single thread at the moment – yet it is part of the consequences that we have created as an actual de-capitation of life wherein we will probably won’t stop until heads actually start rolling down the scaffold – metaphorically speaking. We don’t want to get to that point, obviously –

Hence the imperative requirement to take the time to investigate an alternative that can eradicate the delusion of power for once and for all, and that can only be through Equalizing Money as Life wherein once that we step out of the payroll and never ending hours in monotone jobs, we can dedicate ourselves to investigate the best ways to educate children As Life, not as the next greatest consumers in front of a TV. We can get to sort out our inner conflict generated at a mind level, which implies that a process of self-correction will have to be conducted as part of the commitment placed as Life wherein we can go stopping and dissociating ourselves from the schizoid nature of the mind, and instead, align who we are as the physical bodies that breathe and interact with each other, stopping all surges of want, need and desire that have become the real addiction in this world – in this, we will be able to direct the world the same way that we are able to stand equal and one to our minds within Self-Direction in consideration of what’s best for all.

 

We did it all to ourselves, hence the ability to change the system resides within each pair of hands that we all represent as humanity – of course we have to first speak for all those that cannot do so because we have muted their voice through a constant application of disregard and negligence toward their very own existence and equal-participation in this world.

 

We support the Basic Income Grant  proposal as an interim step toward the  implementation of the  Equal Money System, which implies that we are preparing ourselves for the eventual participation in politics to propose this new-living system at a greater scale. For now, we focus on the Educational aspect, which is primordial considering that the current system was created/ formulated and manifested from the mind itself – a mind that was and is still willing to neglect any form of physical-equality in the name of personal power and control.

Suggestion is to read the Equal Money System Wiki to get the  basic presentation of the proposals, vote on the goals within the website, participate in the forums as well as visiting our various groups on Facebook wherein blogs/ vlogs are published on a regular basis advocating the will to live in a world where Life is Equal in all.

Anarchism & Equal Money System

“While the popular understanding of anarchism is of a violent, anti-State movement, anarchism is a much more subtle and nuanced tradition then a simple opposition to government power. Anarchists oppose the idea that power and domination are necessary for society, and instead advocate more co-operative, anti-hierarchical forms of social, political and economic organisation.”  Susan L. Brown[1]

There might be parallels between Anarchists and the Equal Money System ‘on paper’ from the perspective that there is a broad understanding of how it is that the current hierarchical system is not allowing any form of Equality to be in place.  Yet, the more and more I delved into anarchism, I became aware of the various factions within it that vary from individualists, communists, libertarians, socialists, creating distinctions on whether a political or economical opposition is emphasized – violent and non-violent… this categorization is separation which, in itself, already represents a rift from that initial theoretical considerations ‘equality’ within own ideology. Though, the common bondage and starting point of such identification is the same stance they have adopted toward the system: Opposing it.

Why is it that throughout history ‘revolution’ as either a “pacific” or through violent means has been regarded as the only way to overcome the system/ people in power –or at least stir the waters – within a particular country/ system?

Is it only that through rebellion and/or opposition we gain a sense of having power over the system?

Why have we not actually gotten ourselves to the understanding that: we can actually present a solution to the system without having to create a constant opposition to a system that we have created in the first place.

The pertinence of this blog is in relation to seeing how we have perpetuated old ways forged in the past two centuries of ‘overcoming the power,’ and continue attempting to create any form of ‘change’ through these means that have already proven themselves to be ineffective and dare I say obsolete and depleted. Otherwise we would have had some substantial changes by now. I’ll share some direct perspectives obtained from people that define themselves as anarchists and their reactions toward the Equal Money System, as well as ending up with a current ‘reality check’ toward the Occupy Movement that keeps going on while having to consider the basic sustenance for such movement to be able to continue, which is: Money.

Anarchism: We oppose the system, but live of it.

Anarchism in its etymology means ‘having no ruler’/ no government’ and is defined as a movement against  all hierarchy – which is how any word that sounds like ‘management system’ or ‘control’ creates a caustic reaction in their ears because such words have already been equated to the current forms of ‘management’ as the various deviations we have as ‘government’ such as kleptocracy, corporatocracy, narcokleptocracy and the names may go on and on, creating as many words as necessary to depict one basic crime perpetuated by all humans: money over life – all disguised as our current governments and political dispositions that are clearly not creating a definitive solution to create dignified living conditions for people and living beings in this world.

This is essentially where the problem relies: we cannot possibly continue existing in such an old-fashioned way of thinking society as this compound and structure wherein only a few individuals can take ‘the wheel’ of the system, and do everything for the rest of the population in terms of making decisions and taking care of the basic functionality and sustainability of the system. We can see that government only exists as the executive power of society ‘on paper’ – meaning within he legal terms of how it is constituted – regardless of how it currently ‘executes’ its functions. However, the Actual System is each one of us existing within it, being active participants and beneficiaries of what is here as part of the Earth. Within this, we can understand that no one can ever be really ‘out of the system’ because by virtue of existing in this world = we are all in the same system – that’s the basic common sense point to grasp. Within this ‘opposing it’ is creating separation toward ourselves.

Money has become the abusive agreement that we have all complied to as the way to establish relationships of convenience and self-interest  with each other within the world. Within that, no dissident group can actually refrain from being an equal beneficiary from. Not even if money is apparently ‘not used’ within a ‘self-sufficient community’ – the fact that a single pair of human beings agree to place some form of value upon what is HERE of the Earth as the alternative ways of exchange such as ‘Bartering,’ still implies a form of capitalism. Why not creating  instead a new agreement for humanity to give access to each other to what is Here of the Earth unconditionally?

And even if this could be a reality for them in their own communities, just because of it not being implemented in a totalitarian way as in an overall reform to the global system, it would remain as sectarianism and a rather reversed form of elitism wherein the actual benefit for all beings in the world is not being taken into consideration.

Discussing Equal Money with Anarchists

A few months back I spent several hours explaining these points to an American guy that is an Anarchist – full blown supporter of Occupy Movement and Anonymous groups. It was around the time when all Desteni channels were shut down and we were facing the point of what it was to actually be ‘silenced’ from the system because of being giving the most-threatening message that has created a ‘rift’ to the current capitalist status-quo, yet quite simple and non-violent at all times: Equality as Life.

What I have found interesting is discussing and talking to people that have defined themselves as ‘Anarchists’ – two individuals specifically at different times and  from different countries/ backgrounds and considered as the non-violent kind – is that they had a fair understanding of the system and are dedicated to live in communities that stand ‘apart’ from the system while reinforcing their sense of cooperation – basis of the syndicalism they support – within their own communities. The usual stories that they share reveal a continual ‘tension’ toward the system and specifically toward the authorities, which are related to confrontational aspects like being taken to jail for ‘petty theft’ and essentially being marginalized from the system simply because of, obviously, deliberately placing themselves as being opposing the system while taking the easy way to ‘live of the system.’

What does this friction and continuous resistance create? Nothing else but separation from ever being able to actually cooperate to create a solution that stands as what’s best for all as and within the system itself.

What is fascinating is that even in these groups, the idea of becoming one and equal as ‘They/ Them’ referring to the corporations, governments  and ‘elites’ within the world seems to be quite a disgrace and almost an aberration, because the foundation of their movement and sense of identification is ‘opposition.’ There is a great drive and desire to do things ‘their way’ and no one else’s way. This and the continual projection of blame toward ‘the elite/ the government/ those in power’ in the system made our conversation almost useless, because of not willing to see what it means to Take Self Responsibility for the system. It is almost paradoxical that they have set their own rules based on a  great sense of ‘collectivism’ and support toward each other in an almost ‘unconditional’ manner – however such strong-sense of  identification is based upon and driven by an initial point of separation from the system = separation from anyone else that is not self-defined as anarchist.

When discussing the Equal Money System with them, both stopped hearing the moment that the proposal is set within the system and established through political and democratic means.  What is the basic discordance here? Realizing and understanding that: We Are the System – we cannot possibly be opposing something that is ourselves, our own creation.  It is useless to set up ‘new rules’ that could only affect small communities that are neglected and self-relegated from the central governance, while the rest of the world simply continues falling apart. Isn’t that rather elitist in the sense of not considering that a solution must be implemented at a global level?

The Solution comes from Within ‘The System’

The moment that actual Self-Responsibility for the system was laid on the table, the less they heard about what we are proposing in terms of living Equality not only within a selective group of individuals wanting to ‘escape the system,’ but extended as an actual participative and educational process wherein ALL are included indistinctly.  I explained how it is not to judge your ‘corporations’ as the evil in this world, or ‘money’ as the problem in itself, this caused some evident discomfort simply because it cannot be conceived or understood that the fuel for such machineries resides within each one of us regardless of consuming their products/ services or not. By the single fact of being using money = they are equally supporting the same system they are opposing.

So – this all seemed quite apathetical for them as a form of “living” within the system. I concluded in such conversations that there is no sense of Self Responsibility as an actual understanding that the ‘change’ must come from within the system and based upon terms that will take into consideration everyone in the world. The very fact that people that are currently starving are not part of their ‘planning’ and aims as a collective, already reveals that there is no actual understanding of what equality implies within the context of the whole as the world.

I realized that it’s easier to ‘go along’ with ‘fucking the system’ while leeching off the products and services from the system and creating a sense of ‘freedom’ and ‘liberty’ within a rather conditioned state of threatened and often violent means of survival.

What I have realized through the educational process of what Equal Money System implies is that we can never actually ‘escape’ the system, no matter how hard we try: we can only end up spiting ourselves. This is essentially what we have done with knowledge as to ‘set our own rules’ disregarding the actual physical laws that govern this reality, which affect and are applied to the whole indistinctly.

Knowledge is separation from common sense

‘Authority,’ ‘control,’ ‘money,’ ‘government,’ ‘power,’ – these are words, they are our creation and the way that we have abused words cannot only be looked at from the perspective of ‘the system’ as the political, social and economical structure we are currently living in, which is capitalism in all forms in the world. First we have to look at how we have separated ourselves from each other through the very knowledge that we have imposed  to create our own ‘dissidence’ from the system. The absurdity of it is that: We ARE already separated, we are already living in opposition toward each other in a rather ‘utopic’ world wherein we use paper and coins to obtain means that we could simply agree to give each other by setting up an agreement to distribute all resources in equal ways!

What is knowledge in this world but the agreements that we are now opposing and creating anti-thesis for with a plethora of reasons and justifications to not take self responsibility for our creation. Opposing the system/ being an Anarchist is just like being an atheist that defines themselves according to the ‘non-existence of god’ which is how spitefulness is created as a pseudo self-empowerment through  knowledge = it is not physically real!

Real power can only exist in Equality

That is how any form of ‘intellectual revolution’ such as communism, anarchism, Marxism, communism cannot be REAL within the sense that they wish they could be, simply because the physical reality that is equal as everything and everyone here is not considered within their foundation. By pointing fingers at someone as ‘the evil one’/ opposing them is not considering the fact that such person is also themselves as well. Basic common sense is neglected even by the ‘thinkers’ within any of these movements of which I’ve met some examples of in the past – from scholars to activists to regular anarchists = all missing out the same essential point: We Are The System = We Take Self Responsibility For Our Creation.

‘Them/ They’ was a recurrent speech pattern from these individuals. Blaming corporations, the government, ‘the system’ as this big monstrosity that cannot be ‘beaten’ any other way than just running away from it, or burning it down to ashes – apparently.

It is fascinating how even the so-called ‘rebels’ within our current system cannot possibly handle the fact that they are one and equal with the ones that they take as arch-enemies within the system.

The very fact that an anarchist or ‘leftist’ or plain antagonist toward the system is still existing in contrast to ‘the right’ or ‘capitalists,’ confirms that their solution is not sustainable, because it’s not based upon universal-principles such as Equality as Life. Continuing to dissent half of the world can only perpetuate wars within the system, which is unacceptable.

“If it is correct, as I believe it is, that a fundamental element of human nature is the need for creative work or creative inquiry, for free creation without the arbitrary limiting effects of coercive institutions, then of course it will follow that a decent society should maximise the possibilities for this fundamental human characteristic to be realised. Now, a federated, decentralised system of free associations incorporating economic as well as social institutions would be what I refer to as anarcho-syndicalism. And it seems to me that it is the appropriate form of social organisation for an advanced technological society, in which human beings do not have to be forced into the position of tools, of cogs in a machine.” – Noam Chomsky [2]

Fascinating way to neglect the fact that such machine is what keeps food on the table, what keeps the internet going, what allows us to read his articles and books – isn’t that biting the hand that feeds as well? These are very basic points often neglected within any opposition or ‘occupy’ movement. Now that we are in such realms let’s catch up with the latest.

Occupy Wall Street needs Money to exist

We have written about movements like the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street and Anonymous groups ending up more like another layer of the ongoing terrorism in the world and creating more crisis and loss than the one they are fighting for.

Is this the way to go within the system? Absolutely not.

Let’s take a look where the occupy movement is after almost 5 months of ‘occupation.’

With donations to Occupy Wall Street falling significantly and money starting to run low, the movement has imposed a partial spending freeze to make sure enough money is available for crucial functions like bailing protesters out of jail.

“We need to stop all new nonessential spending until we get our budgetary committee together,” Haywood Carey of Occupy Wall Street’s accounting working group said Tuesday.

Money is a controversial issue among protesters, as some see it as necessary for the movement to thrive and others want to reject it entirely. Recently, Occupy Wall Street’s accounting working group began interviewing candidates for an accountant.[3]

The fact that MONEY is required to move any ‘movement’ that stands against the system is quite paradoxical.

The conclusion is that within the Equal Money System we don’t require to create any form of ‘distinctions’ or ‘specification’ because we simply stand for Equality as Life– we oppose no one, we include all, therefore we are neither anti-capitalist or anti-communists or ‘anarchists’ because both poles and dissident groups have been formed from the starting point of MONEY being the point that creates the disparity and Inequality that defines them and keeps them associated in the first place. We stand within a principle that will allow money to become a single tool that supports all living beings to have a dignified living in this reality.

This can be implemented through political means and through the principle of ‘one human, one vote” as the direct democracy that should have always existed in this world. We understand that creating opposition as standard or any form of policy that creates separation is the beginning of the current capitalist, sectarian and discriminative  system that we’re still living in as the world system.

Therefore, there is one single principle that should be considered by any political and social faction that agrees with the points explained here and is willing to collaborate and participate in an equal way to create a system that considers creating dignified living conditions for everyone within this world: Equality in all ways.

Knowledge can only stand as a point of dissent whenever it is not applicable and practical to provide for physical solutions required in this world. Theoretical and political dissertations won’t manifest food on the table of those that starve – money provided in equality along with the understanding of the responsibility each one of us as human beings hold toward this world as the current world system, will create a substantial change that can be lived if working together to educate ourselves – and others – about the importance of being within the system to eventually create a political stance that people can become a part of through a basic understanding and self-agreement of the living-responsibility we all have to exist as within this world.

We are human beings that understand that creating any political reform requires people, education and participation within the current system, which includes generating money in order to keep running our educational and political agenda. Understanding ourselves from the starting point of how we create this system as a reflection of our own mind is the basic starting point to create a reality that is equalized from within and without. Equal values means no more value other than the consideration of Life in Equality. No need to oppose, rather live in Self Responsibility.

How to Support/ Promote the Equal Money System?

Bastian wrote:I am questioning the approach, if it wouldn’t be smarter, to create petitions, get into contact with those in power and convince them, start small projects to demonstrate the power of an equal money system, convince them, think of ever new ways to get into contact with those, who actually can ‘implement’ such a system today and how to get their awareness, start campaigns on the street, thinking of ever easier ways to demonstrate the power and importance to change the root cause and problem of our current system.

‘Children of the world’ need an ‘equal opportunity’ to unfold their full potential.
And this CAN be done!
What is required is our VOTE for a basic income to meet their basic needs.
We live in one social-economical-system and every one of us is dependent on the ‘money’ we use every day for trading our ‘goods and services’ and without the ‘integration of the children’ of this world into our ‘trading system’ they get no chance to contribute to our world.
It’s our choice, our power, our VOTE, our demand!


In practical terms I see, that the ‘current power structures’ in the world, who make the ‘laws for money distribution’ are the ‘political institutions’ and that the most immediate ‘global change’ >COULD< come (I don’t believe it at all) from those individuals currently in power situations, where they are ‘suggesting’ and ‘voting’ on ‘new laws for the money distribution’ and ‘the way money is used today.

This can be to a certain extent so, for example when looking at solutions like the Basic Income Grant, we can see that there are political parties that are supporting it already – however as we know, it is only a temporary solution/ plan to support everyone to at least have the basics to live. Though as long as there exists Money as power in the way of laws/ regulations that are supposed to care for all in Equality, we will continue living within the same old system of voting for an apparent ‘change’ in how that money can be distributed.

If the entire monetary system is not reformed from its starting point and how it currently exists, it will most likely be futile trying to/ attempting to create a change without considering that the solution must be created from scratch as an entire new system where money is no longer based on debt, but only becomes an accounting tool to ensure all is Equally supported.

Hence the change will have to come from us supporting and endorsing the Equal Money System  as the way to create an entire new way of living/ coexisting in this world, with money no longer being a point of control and power, but simple management to distribute the necessary goods/ services to all beings in this world.

What I see is, that we need two things, one is the awareness of the public, by making the importance clear and the change attractive for more supporters.

See, the starting point of the Equal Money System is implementing a Living Principle which is Life in Equality, this is essentially how it ‘should have been’ since the beginning.  Hence we don’t have to convince anyone of ‘why’ Equality is what’s Best for All, because that is part of each one’s process of Self Realization in relation to becoming Aware of how we are existing in this world, how by simply existing HERE we are equally responsible in this world which makes us the key to create a transformation in the system if we see that it is not working for all in equal terms. You will notice that, as this current system collapses, more people will start looking for options in relation to an alternative system, a new system that could cover people’s basic needs – that’s how we have now points like the Basic Income Grant which we support as it creates a basic awareness on the requirement to support each other as Equals.

The second thing is an ‘accurate, consistent, meticulous worked out implementation plan, which in turn will be the strongest real change,

That plan is not yet ‘here’ because we cannot scheme such points with precision while we are still walking our own individual processes of learning How to live as Equals, how to live As the principle of Equality, which implies understanding and practically applying the tools to live in Self Honesty which is the inevitable necessary step before we start considering on creating such plans that will be created in the appropriate moment in time.

Understand the following: this is a process that has never been walked here on Earth, we are not a corporation trying to sell an ‘efficient plan’ that is sellable and attractive to people that are still only considering what is ‘best for them’ in a system where life has been monetized instead of regarded as Equal in all ways. The ‘strongest real change’ will be each individual standing as the principle of Life in Equality here, as such individuals will then understand what is required to be done in order to implement this system and support others to do the same through an educational process, which anyone has access to currently as the platform of Self Support that Desteni is.

for then it really raises the most important question of all and that is how exactly do we achieve the highest effect in the smallest amount of time and how do we practically implement the equal money system. At the moment we are a couple of hundred people following a great idea of what is best for all,

That is capitalist thinking right there in italics, which is linked to how time = money in a system that runs/ is motivated by profit making. See how it is within that  type of logic and thinking that we’ve accepted as ‘how things must be’ that we have to get back to common sense and debunk our own accepted and allowed ways of ‘how the system works’ and how one seek to get it all ‘done’ right away, just as we are now currently paying for products and consuming them without having an idea or consideration of all the processes behind its production.

This is for example, beginning with the extraction of the necessary prime matter to produce them: who labors in that, how are they paid, how are the corporations then making use of such resources, who’s earning what, what is the rate of abuse and human violations in such activity? What does the price that I’m paying actually covering and who gets the most within such transaction? Within tracing one single chocolate bar  through this processes until the moment when you finally pay for it, you would probably think twice in terms of how our desire for ‘efficient systems’ are currently based mostly on our negligence as humanity that accepts and allows exploitation and abuse as a form of ‘labor for the poor,’ just because of being quite comfortable with only ‘paying the price’ without being involved/ getting our hands dirty in looking at the actual processes behind the production of products and services that we use and sometimes only ‘indulge into’ without it being an actual basic need.

When we start seeing how this world system works, we become aware of how the solution must be applied/ lived first within ourselves to understand our point of responsibility in how the world is currently functioning/ existing as.

but if we get older and can’t convince anyone of these ideals, they will drop, for an idea is only as strong as the number of people demanding it.
Another thing is, that there are many groups out there trying their utmost to demand change. But they are to far away from the current people in power, who could ‘suggest’ and ‘vote’ and ‘implement’ an equal money system today. Put it in place actually today!

An idea will remain only an idea if no one lives it. We are a group of people beginning to live an Equal Money System within ourselves wherein we are practically walking and sharing a process of seeing where and how we have participated in the current separation and polarization that we’ve created as this world, as the entire monetary system wherein we have created such perceptual values in separation of what is Here as the physical reality that is literally ‘priceless.’

We as human beings have been the ones that have created an entire monetary system based on one’s own desires to be ‘powerful’ and ‘having it all,’ which has translated to the entire way that all relationships function in the system – whether economical, socially and politically speaking including our very own personal-relationships wherein we seek to get that ultimate fulfillment and desire accomplished for us to attain some form of ‘happiness’ and ‘well being’ without considering all the points that make such ‘dreams/ ideals’ possible.

Within having these objectives and ‘desires’ existent in each individual, we’ve created a system wherein everyone is competing to ‘make it/ get it’ and in that, forgetting about anything that has to do with others and supporting others as equals. This is how we are living in a dog eat dog world wherein there are those that win and those that lose, those that ‘survive’ according to how well they are able to follow the rules and get the best skills in manipulating and deceiving to ‘get the most of the cake,’ and those that decide not to play the game and live as renegades of the system without having proper ways to support themselves. Both points are equally supporting a system of Inequality – we are all here and responsible for sustaining and supporting a system of abuse through the very existence of Money as it does in this world.

Hence you can look at how we have to first focus on ourselves, on debunking our starting point of doing/ living in this world and bringing that starting point and motivation to create what’s Best for All. As long as we still seek an idea of success or fulfillment based on one’s own individual preferences and desires within life and what we could consider as ‘fulfilling,’ we’ll remain looping around a system based and designed to only provide such fulfillment at the expense of others that are abused and used in the process that allows only a very few in this world to have a standard living of wealth and ‘prosperity.’

We can’t look at convincing ‘those in power’ as they are well ingrained and also surviving from keeping their job that supports the current system that is in place. The solution must come from the realization that we have accepted and allowed the current system to exist the way it does, we are thus responsible for creating one that is best fro all.

We understand that the Equal Money System won’t be placed and voted for overnight, this is a process and everyone that understands the imperative necessity for us to begin this process at an individual level, begins with themselves because there is no way that we can implement and advocate a solution without us having that point of Equalization as Ourselves.

We would all want it to ‘get it done’ as soon as possible, but because it is a process and it must be walked as and within each individual as certain group, it takes time to create and establish a solid foundation of participants. Hence we will take the necessary time and that will mostly imply at least a decade to get the basics  in place. Thus, what I suggest is for you to realize that we obviously would want all the atrocities in this world to be stopped right away, however we understand that all that we are currently facing is part of our manifested consequences accumulated through all the time that we disregarded the fact that: what is Here is ourselves and should be given equal access to within a political/ social and economical system = an all encompassing system based in one single principle: Life in Equality.

I am questioning the approach, if it wouldn’t be smarter, to create petitions, get into contact with those in power and convince them, start small projects to demonstrate the power of an equal money system, convince them, think of ever new ways to get into contact with those, who actually can ‘implement’ such a system today and how to get their awareness, start campaigns on the street, thinking of ever easier ways to demonstrate the power and importance to change the root cause and problem of our current system.

You can take that point for/as yourself and become an individual that supports the Equal Money System, you’re able to record yourself, write blogs and share them in the internet. Nowadays, we’re seeing how such public protests have no effect whatsoever to create a ‘change’ in the system. Once again, it’s not about ‘convincing’ someone but presenting common sense and sharing how it is able to be lived in congruence to one’s individual life, as those are the points that can be the proof/ example of how within living as and by a principle of Life in Equality, we are able to create a substantial difference in how we live/ interact with others which then will inevitably create a window of opportunity for others to see that they are also able to do it.

The more people are able to become aware of there being a solution in this world based on Life in Equality, the faster we’ll move and that’s why we do what we do as Desteni/ Equal Money System through social media and everywhere else we can in as well to develop a presence in each one’s reality.

Thus YOU become that point that speaks up, you don’t require large groups = we move through the Internet where you join an already existent and established network that promotes Life in Equality at all levels.

With regards to your writing,

But we need to reach those in power or create power ourselves and what I see as most important of all things is the transparent truly practical realistic comprehensible ‘implementation plan of the equal money system’ which would speak for itself.

This point I suggest discarding as it is implying that ‘those in power’ have to create a ‘change’ and it is not so, the Equal Money System is a set of individuals that will be and create the necessary transformations in the system through political means = this is not coming from your current political parties/ politicians. See how the description is not accurate in terms of people being highly influenced by knowledge to not understand what ‘Equality’ implies – hence the most basic common sense would have to be included in any form of Equal Money System propaganda as this is an educational process as well.

Basically my question is, how are we going to establish and integrate this administration? How will we move from our current power and rule structures, which are followed by nearly 7,000,000,000 people to this administration which has to be trusted by all these people?

Please read the latest update on Implementation of a global Equal Money System at the wiki and all its components on this subject.

Thanks Bastian if you are willing to contribute, I’ve already explained how you can start today with vlogging/ blogging and becoming a practivist within the Equal Money System, which implies that You live by and apply the Equality principle as yourself in your reality. There is no other way that we can get to ‘grasp’ what Equal Money means if we don’t begin with looking at how it is required for each one of us to ‘Equalize’ ourselves as everything and everyone that is HERE.
For this Desteni is the necessary step as the source of Education and Tools to support ourselves to live as Equal beings in this World.

Equal Money System - How to stop abuse

Disposable Lifestyle Must STOP

As we move into a year that has been marked as ‘the end of the world’ more and more perspectives on how this world is actually collapsing at various levels emerge in the media.
Evidence shows that we have built a world around consumerism, around buying and selling life in order to ‘make a living’ while producing more shit to live. And by shit I mean products that are not made out of an actual purpose and requirement to live, but are only manufactured to create new needs implanted and promoted through nice pictures that suit personalities and lifestyles that can afford being constantly seeking the fastest, easiest, most enjoyable way of ‘living.’

Who has created such a system? Who has deliberately kept the current status quo of a never ending quest to ‘conquer the world’ as ‘the superior species’ that we’ve claimed ourselves to be? Us, all of us – humans. It is a great comfortable lie to only blame the corporations – because we buy from them; it’s easy to blame politicians – while we vote for them, and even if you don’t vote, we are all still accepting the current political system where only a few are ‘in power’ and taking decision for the whole. Though it’s also ‘great’ to delude ourselves into what this world ‘has to offer’ in terms of media and entertainment that is able to exist in a nice fluffy alternate reality where ‘everything is alright’ while bowing down to a system based in inequality, a system that is proving itself to have failed at creating dignified living conditions for all  beings, as well as an actual preservation of the resources on the planet based on indispensable consumption to live. But! this is not seen, this is not promoted because it goes against the ‘laws’ of capitalism where ‘the more you buy, the ‘wealthier’ you are,’  ‘the more you consume, the ‘happier’ you are’ – these have been underlying mottos that we’ve accepted as  our motivation to keep going in this world.

We have been the co-creators of every single policy in this reality that has stood only as a benefit for our hedonist lifestyles while disregarding what we are inherently supporting just by the mere fact of supporting and complying to a world wherein we  ‘buy life.’ This single acceptance has lead us to the horrible truths that only few dare to research upon.

Dead River

How come there is mercury in our light-saving light bulbs? How is it that water fluoridation is not controlled at all eventually creating damages at a cellular level? How come we’ve allowed an over-production of cars to have up to 900 million cars in this world – and still going up in numbers -all requiring oil that is the subject of wars, all of them expelling exorbitant amounts of carbon dioxide and other chemical pollutants into the air. It is certainly not cool living in a city where you can’t breathe clean air at all.

How come that we’ve agreed to make of McDonald’s one of the most profitable companies around the world this year while having material that gruesomely exposes their industrial farming where chickens are kept in the most macabre ways only to eventually be killed so that you can have your ‘happy meal’ – this is only an example among several other violations that threaten the lives of animals and humans alike in such massive production system. McDonald’s is ‘still going strong’ in the world where everyone is attempting to follow the ‘American way of ‘living,’’ promoting images of happiness and satisfaction while hiding the most atrocious ways entailed in their production.  Who consumes? We do and they are not alone.

Ronald’s company shares the throne next to companies like Google – god nonetheless – Pfizer, keeping the nations doped in well-established agreements with FDA and the entire brigade of psychiatrists that are more than happy to have you there every month seeking for your ‘antidote’ to any mental experience that you’ve created for yourself. Apple which has been the most effective in creating and setting ‘new trends’ in terms of updating products unnecessarily, creating a fan base of loyal consumers that keep the company growing around the world. Jobs might have been a ‘great developer,’ but he also found ways to create his products in a ‘clever’ way using slave labor in China, in factories where slaves/ ‘workers’ are forced to work over hours while living in  rooms with other 20 people, just to keep it all ‘sustainable.’ Now, who doesn’t have an iPod, iPhone, iPod or Mac ?

Nike, a company that reveals people sweating while enjoying their products but hiding the ‘sweat-shop’ actual effort and suffering within the factories in Asia, having workers that  have no other option than cutting meals a day just to afford painkillers in case of getting sick.All of these companies also produce exorbitant amount of rubbish that is dumped and not taken responsibility for, at all.  It is an all encompassing detrimental and harmful business that is currently placing animals in extinction, animals being abused and kept in the most insane ways to be killed and sold to cover the increasing rates of meat demand in the market. Add the polluting aspect with chemicals and hazardous materials that are often used in the products without anyone knowing about it. These are all then packaged and sold in plastic containers and wraps, all of it being part of the ‘convenient’ materials for a fast-food lifestyle that is sold and packed ‘ready to go’ to fulfill our needs/ desires as soon as possible with ‘great quality’ on top of that.  I mean, isn’t it obvious that this world is based upon absolute abuse, betrayal, harm and negligence to one another? This includes not only human beings, but animals, plants, the environment, the very air we breathe?

Looking at the garbage that gets dumped into the ocean: what are the solutions to this? Straining the ocean is not an option as that would certain capture other species as well. They argue that cleaning the oceans is ‘beyond any nation’s budget’ – what if money wasn’t an obstacle to do so? The point is to stop the problem in its root. We’ve built a society based on a disposable lifestyle that we believe ends up in the trash can. No. It is horrific to see what animals are having to endure and die from because of this human-made world.

We are completely delusional if we think that over a hundred years of having cars running in this world, we won’t have a detrimental effect on Earth. The same applies for virtually every single industry where everything we use, wear, eat and just ‘buy’ has an entire set if procedures behind that we’re simply not aware of. We’re neglecting the very fact that it is the accepted and allowed hedonist lifestyle that is leading us to this current state we’re living in. We have neglected the vital consideration to create sustainable ways to live, beginning with our monetary system which is the main cause to these profit-driven industries that satisfy consumers to generate more capital – and the chain goes on. Where does it stop? With each one of us.

 

Do we really care about each other? No, otherwise the abuse, disregard and general carelessness about ourselves and the environment  would not exist, because we would not have accepted the current economical, political and social structures in the first place where being rich is the ultimate triumph, regardless of who’s chest you have to stand upon to do so.

Where is our human integrity? Has there EVER been human integrity? No. And I am sick and tired of living in this sick and polluted world. I cannot continue blaming or neglecting the facts that exist here, I stand up for a solution that we see and realize it is the root cause for the majority of the current problems we’ve created in this world: MONEY.

Investigate the Equal Money System wherein we are creating and planning a structure based on Equality, where life is dignified and supported unconditionally for all, as a birth-right. This will stop the extensive abuse toward animals, humans, plants, the environment as the principle is Equality implemented through Equal Money where our basic requirements to live are supplied by virtue of living here.  By having our needs met, we will have all the time we require to start investigating ways in which we can clean up the world, as well as stopping producing unnecessary products that are only fulfilling a certain ‘personality’ and ideal-lifestyle that has never considered the reality that we live in, wherein those that ‘earn the least’ are the exploited ones that keep those on the top happy and celebrating a lifestyle that has its roots in abuse and suffering.

I could go on and on citing all the various aspects of human slavery, animal abuse, indiscriminate use of resources, social problems, political negligence, judicial unfairness, health detriment by untested products, lack of basic understanding of how we create this world, wars, famine, child abuse, family violence, consumerism, mental problems, greed, monopolies, pollution in the oceans, the air, our water depleted due to irresponsible contamination in this world…

We are Here, nonetheless.

Our reality will change, that’s for sure. But be aware that all changes made will only have one single purpose: Creating an Equal world where we stop the current suffering of all sentient beings in this world, stop harming and abusing ourselves because of money, stop abdicating our responsibility toward each other and start working together for a single outcome that will benefit all equally.

We are here to stop neglecting life, to stop our personal turmoil that tampers our ability to see what this reality as ‘our world’  has become by our own hands. We’re here to stop self interest to create common interests where life in equality means best for all.

Picture yourself in another’s shoes.

You wake up in a bed within a clogged room with other 19 people, you gaze out the window and see nothing but barbwire and steel barriers to prevent you escaping from what it seems like a prison – yet it is ‘only’ your workplace, a factory which is conveniently located in the same terrain as your ‘living place.’ You get ready to begin your 7 days a week job at 6:30 am wherein you’ll remain working non stop until it is 11-12 pm. Your job consists of making toys for people in the ‘first world.’ Somehow you try to question why people require such stuffed animals and plastic devices to entertain kids – easy: they got the money to buy what they are offered as products in the store.

Your work is insanely tiresome, you have been made to sign a contract of 8 hours while working almost twice as much as ‘the law indicates’ without it being even recognized by the “authorities” within the factory you work in – who by the way, don’t really give a fuck about creating any proper working conditions for you. There you’re simply a number, a machine that gets paid according to how fast you can produce.You are incredibly fed up because you are forced to work till dawn, you get dizzy and your eyes hurt but can’t stop. There is no time for a quick rest either. Sometimes you skip breakfast so that you’re able to save a bit of money which eventually gets you even more tired and sleepy while working. You are then pointed at for not being productive and your bosses warn you about getting fired if you continue to fall asleep in your workplace. By the way, you cannot complain as that will ensure you are threatened along with the rest of your workmates that dare to speak up about the needs and requirements for proper working conditions you may be pondering about demanding.

You have no minimum wage – it’s all production based which is the way that you are kept ‘motivated’ to work extra hours to get ‘more money’ which is never enough for you to be able to buy the freedom that you yearn for every single day. It becomes obvious that you don’t work because ‘you like it,’ but because there is no other way to survive in such tight conditions within a country that has ‘opened doors’ to the world to become just an outsourcing nation that provides cheap labor with no proper labor regulation which ensures to any investor, maximum profit and the best job done in the required timeframes. Key word: No one will complain.

You are sold a convenient idea of being able to live and be ‘looked after’ in the same factory place – yet you know that this is the only way to keep it functional because you’ve already come from far away in the province to get this job due to the harsh conditions of poverty you were living in before you got this job. Even though you hardly own things, you are wishing to save enough to one day be ‘free’ and do what you would actually enjoy doing in your spare time. Sadly so, this day seems to perpetuate in a never ending smokescreen that tampers your sight every time that you see yourself day dreaming while grabbing pieces of plastic as hot as 200 C – you wonder if the people buying such product would even know or care about the fact that someone is having a hard time while producing such flashy pieces of plastic.

You are part of the cheap labor in the Chinese toy industry, you help create what represents 95% of the entire toy production that is sold in stores in Europe and the rest of the world. Your work is part of the high quality standards that such countries demand while being completely oblivious to the actual conditions you work in. You are not allowed to speak to international press about your working life, you’re not allowed to complain to any supervisor because you are well instructed about the lies that you must say to them in order to earn 50 extra Yuan for answering with the “correct” answers to them. You have no other choice in a world where money creates biased conducts and where ethical regulations have become another pompous word that’s never considering practical justice applied to such abusive working conditions.

You are not allowed to affiliate or become part of trade unions because that would signify being threatened back by your bosses on going bankrupt and eventually end up fearing losing your job every time that you dare to expose your case to the ‘authorities.’ You keep wondering if you’ll ever get out of such living conditions, you like to dream about it, but the heat of the machines and the constant noise brings you back to a harsh reality wherein every second counts like a cent. You got blisters, burns, cuts and any other injury around your arms and hands because of those times that you have wandered off in your mind, dreaming about the happy lives that people that buy such toys must have while you are stuck in this menial job for a lifetime. You must wear a face mask which doesn’t necessarily prevent you from developing lung diseases from being constantly exposed to elements like chrome and mercury.

It is all just ludicrous. You are bound to create products that look nice and make ‘kids happy,’ yet you are desperately crying inside asking for the world to see and realize that what you buy is not coming from a fully automated machine that can produce it all at will – no. This is all your job, this is you operating machines for over 12 hours a day in deplorable conditions without any time to enjoy, live and express yourself.  You have no choice within your life and often wonder if having no job at all could be a better situation than living in such conditions while being ‘employed.’

In a world where consumerism is the ‘key’ to move this entire system, slave labor is the way  to maintain the desired ‘low prices’ that we always seek in stores, never pondering how come that such products are able to be ‘so cheap’ and ubiquitous in our reality. There is no ‘corporate responsibility’ that can give proper solutions or answers to the most common questions on the allowance and acceptance of this abuse. Everyone is equally participating in a system of betrayal. We have bound ourselves to an agreement of absolute disregard to fellow human beings. We’ve made of this world, the people, the animals, plants and everyone else in it part of the assets that can be traded to give the most profit to those that have set the rules. These include calling requests for higher wages and less hours of work “bad thinking” often chuckled at as if it was a ‘lucid dream’ that has no chance of being implemented at all.

We have agreed in this system of betrayal, a dog eat dog world.

Workers blame the factory management, the factory management blames the corporative policies being extremely tight forcing them to give low wages while requiring extended hours of work to fulfill the deadline to deliver the production. Corporations blame the consumer as not being willing to ‘pay extra’ to be able to create proper working conditions for people. These are all excuses we throw at each other like a ball set on fire to not create jobs and living conditions that can be best for all equally. This is because it is not at the best interest of those that require the perpetual existence of people that are bound to living in extreme poverty and being willing to do ‘anything they can’ to get a job and get to survive in this world.

My question is: would you like to live a life like this? No, I’m sure you don’t – yet millions of adults, youngsters and children are part of this current crime against life that is slavery – and this is all because of profit created out of a world that is taught to consume as a ‘lifestyle.’

This is all part of the data conveyed in the documentary Santa’s workshop created by Lotta Ekelund and Kristina Bjurling from Sweden, which is one of the main countries that have such toy factories running with no proper regulations in China.

 

None of this will exist in an Equal Money System wherein we are beginning already to become part of the solution within stopping ourselves from participating in the unnecessary consumption of products that serve no other purpose than creating profit in someone’s greedy pocket in exchange for something that isn’t indispensable to live.

The condition of ‘slavery’ in this world will not cease to exist until we all agree that we must stop the current functioning of the world which is based on buying-selling and earning ‘money’ – which is also created at will – from such transaction which benefits only a few.

We all must wake up from this slumber wherein nightmares are the day to day living condition of millions of human beings in this world that are living in such extreme poverty conditions that force them to survive through menial jobs, while others are bound to be starving to death.

Support and inform yourself about the solution and plan of action we are presenting here as the way to create a dignified living for all human beings. Become part of the voices that speak up for a world that is fair, a world wherein Equality as Life will mark the end of all our current disregard and carelessness for those that do suffer from having to survive in a constant hell wishing and hoping for it all to end for them someday.

No More Plumpy’Nut in an Equal Money System

“It’s really revolutionary, because it doesn’t need to be mixed with water or refrigerated,” Salem continued. “And the most miraculous part is, it will transform a child from literally skin and bones to certain survival in just four to six weeks.”

plumpy

Plumpy’Nut is a friendly-named ‘product’ developed to mitigate severe acute malnutrition. It’s a paste made out of mixed and mashed nuts wrapped in convenient foil packages – just like your regular energy bars. This facilitates its distribution in places where it is required, which is often third world countries with no ability to create any other form of long-term solution because of the lack of money and means to do so.

The creation of Plumpy’Nut is yet another ‘achievement’ of the human endeavor to create a ‘cure’ that only mitigates the actual problem, ‘saving lives’ without any other plan of action to create sustainable ways to keep the ‘rescued children’ alive. There are no plans to implement laws and regulations that could ensure the end of such poverty and starvation that generate the malnutrition problem in the first place.

It has been deemed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper like ‘the most important advance ever’ in the realm of childhood malnutrition – this statement is already denoting everything that is wrong with how us human beings accept our reality to be like.

Why is ‘malnutrition’ even existent in a world where thousands of tons of food are dumped every single day? Plumpy’Nut is the equivalent to any other band aid solution toward the problems generated as a consequence of existing in a monetary system that is completely disregarding the fact that people in third world countries are also here in this planet and require to be taken into consideration before there is any attempt to create ‘real progress in this world.’

  • Why have we accepted a world wherein words and realities like ‘severe acute malnutrition’ exist as part of who we are?
  • How come we’re so blind to believe that such conditions are ‘out of reach’ and have ‘nothing to do’ with ourselves?
  • How can a single product be seen as a ‘miracle’ and ‘life-saving’ when the actual causes that create the need for such product are not being addressed to create a definitive solution?
  • What will happen to these kids once they get literally fed up of Plumpy’Nut and they require to eat real food?
  • Who will give them the money and means to have food, water and general support that any human being should have access-to by the single fact of being HERE in this world as well?

  • no more plumpy in an Equal Money System

Poverty made business

Inventions are supposed to support the living experience of beings in this world. The ‘human intellect’ is supposed to be placed at the service of what’s best for all. But what happens when we live in a reality that is run by money yet having to ‘combat problems’ like famine? Yes, inventions will also be motivated by money and become a profit making business just like anything else, regardless of the purpose of such creation and the problem at hand.

“Severe acute malnutrition, a condition characterized by extreme stunting and wasting that afflicts an estimated 20 million children worldwide”

People saw the opportunity to make business with the production and distribution after seeing such statistics, this is considering that the ‘treatment’ for each kid costs an average of $60 a month to get them back to a viable condition.

It’s shocking how such a ‘miraculous’ product designed to save starving children became the apple of discord between companies that saw it as an equally ‘miraculous business’ which generated up to $66 million in sales in 2004 alone from the production of 14 thousand metric tons of Plumpy’Nut.

The very fact that money has to be used to aid other human beings that are at the peril of starvation, is already indicating that someone somewhere in the world will be the beneficiary of all those donations for food aid purposes, as the Earth itself takes no money in exchange for all the nuts used for such magic wand product. Millions are annually raised worldwide for food aid purposes – yet starvation and detrimental living conditions for millions have not changed for those countries that we already know exist in a chronic lack of proper resources and governance to implement what  is best for all equally.

“The World Bank, in a recent report, recommended that aid agencies scale up their spending on such programs, which currently stands at $300 million annually, to $6 billion a year.”


 

Similar products began emerging which made of this ‘panacea’  a matter of legal claims, competition and other disputes on licenses and trademarks where the purpose of such product is absolutely disregarded and only the patent matters, because it is the key to monopolize the production and distribution of it.

Non-profit organizations became part of this charity-like move to raise funds to be able to have a good cause to earn money from. The reality is that:

“(it is estimated) that the product reaches only 10 to 15 percent of those who need it, because of logistical and budgetary constraints.”

How come we’ve accepted and allowed profit to be made out of famine?

From here we can start questioning every single product or food program that hasn’t succeeded to eradicate malnourishment in its entirety. This can also be extended to other health problems like AIDS Vaccines which are also part of a great industry with millions that are likely to seek a form of cure for their terminal disease. It is quite shameful that even in matters of human aid, the buck moves the wheels first, greed overruns any attempt to create solutions in this world and it’s one of the main reasons why we are promoting Self Honesty as the basis of the Equal Money System.

 

The End of Famine and Poverty in an Equal Money System

The persistence of poverty in this world indicates that none of the current ‘great inventions’ and ‘solutions’ have been able to eradicate poverty and malnutrition in this world. It indicates that the problem and the solution is not to create temporary aids to keep people alive and then having no dignified living conditions to offer them afterward. This is a human matter, and it is our responsibility by the single fact of using money and having the creation of money as the separation point in our ability to give equal access to what is required to live for everyone, which is readily available as part of the Earth.

Chronic states of poverty that produce the infamous ‘severe acute malnutrition’ cannot be solved with peanuts. Such conditions are created because there is no food around for parents to feed their children, there is no policy of providing the basic needs for fellow human beings to be able to live and that should already be considered as a crime against life. Instead, they’re allowed to starve while some others think of better ways to make the most profit out of it.

If a child remains in such states of malnutrition, their life will be condemned by default to become part of the ones that suffer any form of slave labor wherein the less ‘fit’ you are for a job, the less you’ll be paid. Now, you tell me if we live in a ‘free and civilized world’ – obviously not.

I’ll end this exposure of humanity’s efforts to ‘end starvation’ with the quote from the manufacturer and chief promoter of Plumpy’Nut in the United States R.I. Navyn Salem, a product that will most likely remain being the ‘solution’ to feed those that are about to die, regardless of what they will have to endure once that they have enough muscle tissue to be considered as ‘saved for life.’

“We’re trying to put ourselves out of business […] That would be the best-case scenario.”

When one’s financial benefit depends on providing ‘aid’ to those in need, the ultimate question is: do you really want your source of income to end?

 

These types of diatribes will not exist in an Equal Money System – Plumpy’Nut will cease to exist as everyone will be equally supported to have a dignified living with food, water, public services and education that will provide them the same living conditions you and I want for ourselves as well. What’s ‘best for all’ won’t ever be a ‘business’ as money will not be able to sustain any level of greed again. With that, all charity, world food programs and annual campaigns to raise funds will be unnecessary – no more financial benefits masked in sheeply altruism either – we will simply be able to give and receive what’s of the Earth in Equality.

On Economy and other magic tricks

An economy consists of  the labor, capital and land resources, the manufacturing, trade, distribution, and consumption of goods and services of a certain area. An economy may also be described as a spatially limited and social network where goods and services are exchanged according to demand and supply between participants by barter or a medium of exchange with a credit or debit value accepted within the network.

A given economy is the end result of a process that involves its technological evolution, history and social organization, as well as its geography, natural resource endowment, and ecology, as main factors. These factors give context, content, and set the conditions and parameters in which an economy functions. – from the current God Wikipedia.

We can see how the entire definition of economy does not correlate with the physical reality and how it actually functions. The last part is a fallacy because we all know how the conditions of a certain environment are not the factors that determine HOW economy functions in terms of how the ‘medium of exchange’ a.k.a. money and the current rules within the system function, meaning there is no physical correspondence to money and this tangible physical reality, simply because money is a make believe system.

Economy as it’s currently ‘lived’ is a make believe system that has a set of rules and ‘laws’ that have been designed to create profit and inequality through the capitalization of resources – this is placing value that can be augmented through time -  which are made exclusive only to some through private property; this is then used as a tool/ ‘weapon’ – depends on the use you give it – to obtain yet more capital while obliging others through indirect means to work to multiply such capital through unequal pay. It is ‘indirect’ because it’s done by people that must resort to survive by doing such jobs due to the unequal opportunities, conditions and lack of actual choice as this has been a prefabricated, pre-laid unequal system backed up by nice sounding rules and laws that have never been applied as human rights. This is how we’ve all lived in – may I correct “lived” as merely surviving is certainly Not what Life should be.

Having said this, if we see what economists and other financial experts have to say about the state of the world is nothing else but crisis and hitting rock bottom today – even though they’re supposed to know it all in this field, they don’t dare to explain how it is that economy is a make believe system created by a few greedy humans that can only make rules that benefit them, while making the rest of the world believe that there are such ‘invisible forces’ as the ‘market forces’ that are apparently ‘autonomous’ and no one can reform and correct them to benefit all equally. It’s all a pretty well masked nonsense sugar coated as ‘high studies’ with pretentious words that are designed to create concepts that are not understood by all equally, hence suit their needs which are those of exclusivity, greed and elitism. That is certainly unacceptable yes, yet it is what we’re currently accepting as the ‘rules of the world’.

None of the current economic analysis will lead you to see how money as it currently exists is the problem itself, neither will any of them suggest to create an entire new system based on Equality.

 

An ‘Economic crisis’ can be ‘predicted’ because it is self created, it’s not an unknown phenomena, it is just part of a system that never considered Equality at all in the scheme of ‘economy’ as the actual concept that should be lived  in this world. Yes, people can make lots of money out of wars and crisis due to the same joke that’s played around the tag of ‘crisis’ and other ‘financial adversities’ that are actually ways used to tantalize a society that is only seeing their ability to live in dignity diminished, while only a few continue to move around the strings that will cause such ‘crisis’ for their own benefit in the first place. ‘They’ might be evil, but we have done nothing yet to stop it either until now.

 

What we’re here to realize is how the accepted and allowed ‘human nature’ is what must be corrected to establish a system that supports all life equally, which is how it always should’ve been but was neglected due to such inherent desire for power, greed and control -amongst other human quirks that must be self corrected in a parallel mode.

There is no quick fix for this either, we’ve got a long road ahead in terms of education which must be focused on parents and children. I mean, no analyst or financial expert is looking at the human being as the cause of all the current problems in the world, they’re only looking at how the system has been created by human beings to suit their benefit, not yet looking at ‘human nature’ itself. So real economy should be considering all aspects that conform our reality, not only the ‘money’ aspect.

Equal money is not about ‘money’ or only giving money to all. It entails the reprogramming of human beings at an individual level to ensure we learn how to live as equals and never fuck with each other again – this means taking self responsibility for being part of this world which is the same one for any other person you can be aware of in this reality and just by that single fact, we’re all part of the same game that must be stopped within each one. To stop fighting and promoting vengeance, to stop promoting protests as a way of ‘change’ which will only bring more violence and no sustainable reforms within the system. This has been proven throughout history.

I can openly say that there is more common sense in one single blog/ vlog of a person advocating the Equal Money System than in any economist or ‘financial expert’ approach to the current situation, because the problem must be conducted and understood from the very cause of it which is: the human being.

Economy and the current monetary system are like ‘the spoon’ in the matrix movie, it is only part of the illusion that has perpetuated separation, abuse and slavery to maintain a very few on top that hold the precious and seemingly unattainable ‘knowledge’ that is only a make believe system designed to maim the ability to live in equality.

Therefore, we begin today with such paramount task.

Join us:  Equal money system for a dignified living for ALL.
