2012 How Deep is your Low? The Bitter ends of a merry-go-round lifestyle

We see it, read it and corroborate it all around us: the current downward spiral of the financial crisis is not getting any better soon. However,  there are a few ‘options’ that are existent within this: we take responsibility for having accepted and allowed a system of failure and fraud stemming from the individual desire for ‘power’ that can only exist upon abuse – or we either join a protest or silently appease.

Student loans are finally being exposed for the unbearable and elusive pay offs that they represent since Higher Education has proven itself to be futile -no matter how many degrees you have- to assure you a well paid job to live a dignified life.  There are no vacancies to pay what a PhD graduate would require. Have we over estimated knowledge and information as a secure source of income? Or have we simply missed out the fact that the system in itself was never meant to provide the ‘American Dream’ to everyone that could finish college with honors. That is the point : what have we tacitly allowed by the single acceptance of money as a means to obtain power over others? Education is not available for all equally, and the ones that are ‘fortunate’ enough to get a decent one end up being simply prepared to perpetuate the same system that ensures that the current hierarchical order dictated by money remains ‘as is’ with no prompt solution to the problem.

Education has been reduced as a means to prepare an elite to rule over those that had no chance to even get to see a school in their lifetime – nevermind have a proper source of income, food, potable water or a toilet to dignify their lives. We have agreed upon leaving a large sector of humanity out of the loop to get any decent living condition; we have only focused on making the available education more and more expensive wherein an imminent and ever increasing extreme polarization of society is tightening its middle-path as days go by.

Why have we all agreed upon everything getting tougher every day?

Have a look at anything that we can call an economic activity: everything is depleting, going bankrupt, no job vacancies, stagnant salaries, higher tuition fees, laws that continue benefitting only a small sector of the population, fixed crises to get the most out of the fixed resolution – all of this ensuing violence, rage, anger, depression, suicide attempts and a long history of homelessness and under-educated people that have virtually no future within their lifetimes to have a way to pay off their debt.

This is a world-wide situation in countries where economy used to be a glowing diamond in the dark. You can only picture the rest of the world where such benefits have never even existed.

 

Fracking Hell on Earth: Money Must Support Life -NOT Destroy it

The Way Up is Not through Opposing/ Fighting or Occupying streets

Now, creating further opposition to the system – as we have previously explained – is not the way to stop the problem, it only creates the necessary antithetic move that is equally controlled and expected to get a specific outcome where upgraded forms of control are implemented in order to avoid further riots and disturbances to an already highly perturbed world system.

The point here is to start looking at the cause and origin of this problem Within ourselves – to stop pointing fingers at corporations, ‘banksters,’ ‘puppets’ in the government, CEO’s and any other regular spiritual guru ripping you off for some ‘peace of mind.’

We have to only look at how energy extraction procedures like hydraulic fracturing a.k.a. Fracking represents, not only in the obvious way of it being a way to create another alternative to ‘stop depending on oil,’ but as an actual process of mass raping the Earth to obtain its energy, the ultimate form of vampirism wherein the only driving force is money, which is also turning out to be not such a ‘great business idea’ due to it being mostly a monopolized market that is resulting to cost an extensive amount of money to extract a product that might lead to less profit than the money invested upon its extraction. Bad idea – yet the damage is done and already visible as millions of people are seeing the wells in their properties highly contaminated with ‘undisclosed toxicity’ in the water that can be set on fire when opening the tap of any house in the affected areas by the ‘fracking industry.’ Some extreme cases include people that allow this procedure to take place within their properties in exchange of juicy rewards, which is  proof of how anything is allowed if ‘good money’ is on the way, neglecting in an absolute disgraceful manner the actual environmental consequences and irreversible effects that such gas extraction process is causing at the Heart of the Earth.

Again, all of this for what? To keep an entire machinery of abuse toward each other as human beings, toward the innumerable species that are going extinct every single day as a direct result of any ‘economic activity’ that is decidedly neglecting the consequences of abusing life to maintain a system of, well, abuse really enticed by delusional nicely wrapped images, pictures and ideals that become part of the elusive ‘dreams to fulfill’ in a world where promises are set on fire the moment that reality is faced with acknowledging the actual illusionary value that it was founded upon: our current monetary system as a god belief system that meant nothing else other than trapping any good intention to prosper and common welfare into a self-seeking loop of individualism where all that remains is broken hearts medicated with Prozac to numb the pains that we accepted and allowed to exist the moment that we believed that we could thrive while neglecting two thirds of the world that can only ponder ‘where are we’ in terms of creating a solution that includes THEM as well.

The origin and cause of the current problem exists hand in hand with the implosion of ourselves as a system of consumption, a system sustained by energy-leeching wherein everything that we have believed we had to ‘aim’ for is now coming through the veils to be revealed as the perfect carrot on the stick that was never in fact attainable; the hyperbolic lifestyle we all fell for has come to be our very own demise while existing with v8 tanks to fill out to keep pumping up gas to our American Dream.

Why was such ‘wealthy’ state of being accepted as a ‘lifestyle’ in the first place? We disregarded all life forms that had to be consumed to upkeep such high-maintenance delusional living, and we are now paying the consequences for each one of us having accepted the continuation of a system that could not be sustainable in the long wrong- at all. There’s a massive reality implosion happening at the moment, and the longer we wait to embrace a solution as an equal agreement to create a new system that finally establishes Life as the one and only value that can exist in Life, we will continue to suffer the consequences of having lived by the ‘Divide and Conquer’ law of attraction wherein we only sought to get all the positivity a.k.a. filthy rich and abundant lifestyle, while disregarding the fact that we are part of an equation called Social Organism wherein any part that is deliberate inflated – as the egos that seek it – creates a cancer that is then metastasized tampering any intention to counteract the disease with further ideas of ‘progress’ that have always been promoted with deliberate deceitful means. For that, watch the documentary The Trap by Adam Curtis to realize how we have followed our very blueprint to an inevitable massive scaffold from which our heads can only stop rolling if we dare to work together and create solutions that are implemented within the understanding that it is only in Equality that life can thrive ‘again.’

 


Homeless in an unconditional life-giving world : human spitefulness reaches its peak

‎1 in 19 properties repossessed by the banks – not seeing ‘the light at the end of the tunnel’ ensues rage, suicides and burning down their houses after being evicted. More depression, no ‘roof over your head’ instigates more violence and a cul-de-sac of financial crisis as a result and consequence of having accepted and allowed a fairy tale economic system to continue, without ever questioning the lifestyle ‘lived’ and considering its long term effects within a reality backed by sheer paper – not life.

"There are a limited amount of products and brands, and thus a limited amount of manufacturers and a limited amount of stores and this have become less and less with cheaper and cheaper products to push competitions out the door creating the problem we face now in the world –less and less jobs — this is a recipe for disaster that can no longer be fixed" Bernard Poolman

Equal Money System means: self-forgiveness of debt to learn from the mistakes of the past, having accepted money as the symbol of greed above life. This is what must be faced and the solution is yet to be created when realizing that: we accepted and allowed This to manifest = we fix it and the Equal Money System is the way to finally see and realize that there is no need to suffer and continue this man-made doomsday that can be stopped if we first dare to stop ourselves from participating in buying, consuming and desiring everything that is presented in the name of profit/ money/ wealth as the ultimate pursuit of happiness. There is no doubt that this system is a reflection of who we  are/ what we have become. For that, it is our responsibility to stand as the solution – money is the way that we have all become used to seeing as the way to obtain our living necessities = we simply equalize it which means giving equal access to resources to Live on Earth.

"We can thus confirmed that the message of Jesus failed for the last 2000 years due to none of his followers ever living the message and making sure that it become world policy in education, politics, food-production, healthcare and every point that matters, because if it did — we would have been in heaven already and probably would have been able to see a lot better movies." – Bernard Poolman

 

Back to the questions at the beginning of this post: How low do we have to go to get to a position of self-directive action to create a system that supports Life? What do we actually fear losing if we are already proving our laws, institutions and policies to be as absurd as the existence of a 99% of the population only complaining about a system that we All helped to create and sustain every single day.

Time to Wake up – only through working together and uniting to establish a Living Principle of Life in Equality can we create an actual change in this world – no opposition, no protest, no ‘alternative’ niche economies can create a substantial difference to the Whole. If we miss one single cell again of this entire organism within our solution, we will be doomed to fail again. This is our Equality and Oneness and for that, only a system that is based upon life can be the stepping stone to create  human beings that consider any other life form as an equal part of themselves.

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

Posted in Accepted and Allowed Life Abuse, Altruism, basic income grant,, Capitalism is a Crime Against Life, Crimes Against Life, dignified living, Equal Money, Equal Money System, Evolution, financial crimes, Law is Flawed, nutrition, poverty, profit driven industry, Profit-Making, Reform the Monetary System, solutions, starvation, third world country with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 6, 2011 by marlenlife

“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.
