“On #mayday take to the streets, shutdown your city, and tell the powers at be," I’m mad as hell & Im not gonna take it anymore!"

A Consumer-Cautionary Tale

I got a taste of how my fellow Mexican Multi-millionaire makes business and realized what a terrible scam just one single company can be, obviously at the eyes of us, regular ‘mortals’ that celebrate days like ‘Labor Day’ as the slaves we have become, to them it’s just regular business serving the Profit God. So, Cellphones are a great business not only for the manufacturers but to all Carriers. Here in Mexico I had foolishly thought that 1 MB = 1 Peso, I had even thought that I could be having the ‘cellphone use’ on since I’m mostly using wi-fi on it. Well it turned out a great amount of money had been used on ‘passive usage’ of cellphone data because, yes oh dear god I didn’t turn the ‘Cellphone Data’ to the OFF Mode and even if the cellphone manufacturer had apparently fixed the ‘cellphone usage’ mishap when having broadband available… well it might just casually be that both manufacturers and carriers have plotted these small slips that drain your credit just like petty theft, one bit at a time ending up in a rather large sum of money that I in my foolish assumption believed to be ‘under my control.’ No, sir, no.

I called customer service to get to know the reason of my ‘sudden’ drop of credit, had a chat with the lady at customer service. Obviously it’s fascinating when discussing rates how they simply say “The cost is .02 cents per 1 kb”  – so I replied “Therefore it’s 20 pesos per 1 MB correct?” and she simply repeated the same information “1 kb is .02 cents” They are definitely told not to voice out what is nowhere to be seen in the company’s advertisement… You could say by then I could have immediately gone ‘up in flames’ but nope, I didn’t. I understood that I had been an irresponsible and careless consumer as well as an irresponsible and careless citizen to be more aware of how the hell corporations manage to ‘get away with murder’ in any desirable way they want.  Also, I’ve known people that work in call centers and gotten to hear their own stories from ‘angry customers’ that don’t realize how it is not the call service to be blamed for what the corporate policies are and do. This enabled me to immediately place myself in their  shoes, understanding how they obviously probably also see this as a crime, but just like an insider being captive by the ‘enemy,’ they can’t speak a word or else they ‘hit the street.’

So, as she was confessing the history of my internet navigation sins, I breathed, recognized my responsibility, recognized the situation and actually let her know that what I was about to express was nothing personal toward her since I understand she is only working for company, but I obviously expressed how deceitful their plans are since they began giving away 100 mb for a certain amount of credit on your cellphone and just like our devaluation in 94’ the 100 free mb suddenly ‘shed’ some two zeros and left with just a ‘1 mb’ for free, wow, gee they give away 1 minute of a YouTube video, 1 heavy photograph, 1 minute of audio or 20 pesos …. see the absurdity of our value systems? – She merely replied: ‘I Understand you’ and proceeded to repeat some information about the cost of the ‘passive navigation’ which I simply didn’t require to hear again since it is done and there’s no way to get my money back for something I can claim to be ‘unaware of.’

Well, this is Mexico and I must remind you that our minimum wage in the ‘lowest’ zone is equivalent to 3.06 MB, 3 and a few seconds of a YouTube video, a short song, 3 heavy pictures or a PDF document on your smart phone, that is 61.38 MX Pesos (3.8421 Euro), and yes if you’ve followed this blog, you might notice we had a glorious 3.9% minimum wage raise – hell yeah, 6 pesos /0.3756 Euro that are good enough for round trip in your public transportation of choice in Mexico City – oh wait, not applicable to Buses, just train and subway.

Then I realized that this seemingly ‘unimportant’ situation is the perfect example of how everything functions in our world system:

- We benefit from the service/ goods as long as we have money for it
- We rarely ever take a moment to read the contracts, the policies, the fine print, we just want to immediately ‘use it.’
- We then blame and complain about the ‘corporate powers’ that create these rules, but hey: why did we not read all the details in the contract first? furthermore: why have we not yet created a commission to promote illicit enrichment when corporations obtain money through deceitful marketing campaigns? And even further: why are we still accepting and allowing ourselves to exist in a World-System where the rich get richer, the poor get poorer in ‘perfect’ legal ways?

I could talk about ‘Who’ is behind this Tele Communications company and yes you might know is Carlos Slim since he is part of the gracious Forbes’ list of the richest man in the world, but seriously he is not to blame – he is a businessman that simply did what he learned and aspired to become: a great businessman. We all accepted and allowed this to be done in a country where we all culturally solace within complaining about the government and politicians, but don’t want to have anything to with it. That’s how I agree that we have the government that we ‘deserve’ but that attitude is in fact an excuse to justify the enslavement to carelessness, to indifference, to a desensitized culture, to a value-system that is beyond any pipe dream yet we “live” in it, or shall I say we Endure in it because we think there is no ‘way out.’ If there really wasn’t a way out,  there would not be a single person in this world having a great life and unfortunately we do have those that have a great time at the expense of the majority – but again: we accepted and allowed it, which means our own disparity, our own insanity, our own pipe dream is our current world system, our monetary system where we have enslaved ourselves to our creation – and there will be no solution to this unless we change the way that corporations are settled, which means: getting into politics, changing the constitutions to declare Equality as life with a new Monetary system that integrates this realization – then creating the necessary laws to consider illicit enrichment when one single man in a 120 million people country can be considered one of the richest men in the world while charging a third of your minimum wage for 1 mb on your phone.

Wow, really, wow.

See how this

works?

We don’t educate ourselves, we just ‘go with the flow’ and believe that somehow something or someone will just ‘demand change’ and something will go better this way… well our carelessness, our numbness, our absolute ‘anything goes/ why bother’ attitudes are perfect elements for our enslavement. We are the work force that puts the money-bricks of a rich man’s fortress, but we comply to it, we abide to it because we think ‘there’s no other way’ and then decide that Resistance is the way to go – Is it’?

If there is Anything that can be said on a day like today, is that the ‘sweat of our brow’ and the ideas implanted in our minds about “life having to be a struggle” and complying to absurd, ridiculous and abusive measures by our corporations is nothing else but the reflection of all the abuse, all the friction and conflict that we accept ourselves to exist as within  our minds: we create the world, and complaining about the economy, wars, terrorism, violation of human rights  is just another hypocritical move if we haven’t yet gotten to a point of self honesty to understand why being ‘angry at the system/ the world/ the CEO/ the priest/ the president’ is just another hissy fit where nothing is being solved but only our ‘Righteousness’ is filled up for another round to go.

I advocate that all telecommunications – internet, cellphone usage – are made a human right in an Equal Money System. It is the movement of information with electricity between reception towers and networks that require maintenance, attention, support and necessary upgrades that can for sure be established by a corporation that we can all support with with annual fees that in no way will compare to paying 2 American dollars per megabyte – and yes I am aware you pay more than that in other countries, however as with anything having to do with Exchange Rates, you can’t charge only one dollar less than in a country where a worker is able to make $7.25 an HOUR as of 2013 – much more than what you get for a full DAY here.

What would be an actual movement to stop the madness, the chaos, the fears, the uncertainty, the lack, the worry of not having sufficient money to live another day and all the righteous protests we get because of this? Equal Money Capitalism and The Equal Life Bill of Rights to understand that change in this world is not about shouting on the streets and building up an entire party-spirit about it, it’s about Educating ourselves, becoming responsible consumers and participants in the system, it’s about becoming involved in our politics, to understand how is it that corporations have become the rulers of this world, how we have accepted and allowed every single ‘atrocity’ we can complain to customer service call centers and how we can Reform the system by our own ability to use the same mechanisms with which we have built it to eventually, redefine every single structure that we have defined in the name of abuse, power, control and ultimate Greed.

To get ‘off the grid’ is in fact to step out of the Greed, the complacency , the helplessness, the victimization and shout-out attitude to instead become involved in feasible and concrete solutions that are determined to change the way we exist in this world forever and finally get to Live and enjoy Giving and Receiving in Equality.

May Day? May We Come Together to Stop our Massive brainwashing and actually establish solutions to prevent our world to be eaten by our greed and carelessness? Yes, Let’s do it

Redefining CAPITALISM

Capitalism is an economic system that is based on private ownership of capital goods and the means of production, and the creation of goods and services for profit.[1][2] Elements central to capitalism include capital accumulation, competitive markets, and a price system.[3]

source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capitalism

 

 

Price System

  You can buy anything with a price, the big mistake was putting a price upon life – now we’re all paying the consequences. (pain-in we all are.)

 

 

Problems                                                            

  • Pricing is the mechanism that sustains the fallacy of a system that revolves around makeshift values that generate and equally speculative concept such as ‘debt’ that everyone uses in order to buy or sell means and products, which is our living resources and work force turned into merchandise. This implies that the price we pay for things doesn’t go in an integral way toward the suppliers, but they pay their own debts as well, this means that the money always goes back to the place where it came from: the banking system/ owners of money, it is thus a usurious system and price the quantity representing a relationship of separation in itself.

  •  Elitist Tool: Not every single person has access to buy that which they require to live. By fixing prices an entire being’s life is defined according to what he/she can afford, and by setting a price system, the distribution of goods and services are settled, aiming at certain markets that also determine everyone’s lifestyle: you buy cheap products because your income is low, and you buy luxury items/expensive products because you’ve got more than enough money. We have accepted this as ‘how things are,’ accepting such limitation in a normal manner equal to realizing ‘the sky is blue’ and never questioning about it.

  • Prices determine the quality of products: if you buy cheap products, the chances are that you will be using/consuming a product that is the spawn of planned obsolescence and built/ elaborated/manufactured using slave labor, which means that t might seem like you got a ‘great deal,’ but never really trace back the process to realize how such product came to be so cheap when compared to others, and bargains always contain a higher level of exploitation, not that t is not existent in ‘expensive items,’ but mass production means mass-workers to be able to handle the demand.
    • On the other hand, people believe that paying more for something means paying for quality, while this has been mostly also abused in order to generate the most profit, since there is no real consideration left when it comes to making the most money.

  • Scarcity: this is a great tool used to elevate prices and justify it with the belief that there is not enough to cover the demand. However there have been many examples of how this so-called scarcity is deliberately created to earn the most profit. Sometimes people buy an entire production of let’s say cacao to produce chocolate, they stack it/ hold t/keep it out of the market and create the belief that there is not enough, and as such, the chocolate industry suddenly has no more cacao for its production. Cacao becomes a scarce resource, this then forces the production costs to be elevated and then reflect such speculation on the pricing of chocolate. Now, chocolate is a fancy example, however when this happens with prime-products of first necessity, such as wheat or corn, you get hunger, and that is really a big problem since such scarcity is another ‘rule of the game,’ to speculate even further.  There are various other ways or environmental conditions that may cause this problem, however this is just an example.

  • Abundance is for those that can afford it, obviously. Prices don’t matter if you’ve got a lot of money, prices become a bitter number to look at when one can barely make it through the day and each cent counts. This disparity implies that our minimum wages are not in correspondence to cover the basic needs on a daily basis everywhere in the world, on the contrary, we all know that it is impossible to live with 2 dollars a day, yet we’ve kept billions of human beings living with that amount of money, not being able to afford anything to live properly, many opting  to then do slave labor, sex services, selling organs, buying drugs to mitigate hunger and the list goes on, Poverty is thus a direct result of this Pricing system that decides who can Afford life and who Can’t 
  • Price convenience comes at the expense of diminishing fair pay for others, this is as the name says convenient for the buyer but a crime against fair pay for the laborer that sees no diminishment in their working hours.

  • Price is set up by ‘market forces’ in global financial systems that fluctuate and vary according to an unsettled behavior that maintains everyone within a constant level of uncertainty about the cost of things based on these speculative forces that obviously, only benefit a few that make the rules in the first place.

Inflation is the general increase in prices on a nationwide scale — and can only be caused by an agency that has the power to act on a national scale.

That agency is the government. Inflation is the increase in prices caused by the government ‘inflating’ the money supply with fiat dollars.

 

Doesn’t capitalism cause the inflation of prices?

No. Under Capitalism, the prices of particular goods can “fluctuate” over time, but the general price level of most goods decrease over time due to capitalism’s limitless progress.

source: capitalism.org/inflation

  • Price inflation without Wage inflation as the source of polarization. Prices then become the most basic way to restrict/ limit the ability to buy what is required by the majority to live.

 

 

  Solutions                                                                   

  • The prices we will pay will actually embody a sound distribution of money  for people’s work and taxes in order to maintain the system with political intervention as the necessary regulation to monitor proper functionality and stop any form of speculation or fluctuation without cause. This means that the final price will be the amount that will be equally remunerated to people as their wage, which is what Equal Profit Share implies.

  • Since there is no actual ownership of the resources, the pricing system will not imply ‘paying for the resources,’ but simply for the work that will imply paying for the people that will take care of maintaining or restoring the balance and sustainability necessary within a certain environmental location from where the raw materials are taken. This implies that the price will not reflect paying for any point of assumed ownership upon the Earth’s resources, but instead t will go directly to support people doing the actual work.

  • Pricing system will hold the mathematical equations of equal support to all bodies participating in a certain organism.  This means that a number won’t subsume the Value of Life, but instead it means the Value of the work that enables a fair use, transformation and consumption of the necessary resources to live. Markets will reflect then the stability of such equal distribution of profit/support/gain to all bodies equally.

  • Prices entail Equal-Share which means that we can all have the certainty that the amount that we are paying for our goods and services is the necessary to equally support everyone involved in the extraction/ production/ manufacturing/ engineering/ distribution processes, along with any other administrative and corporate activity that will be implied as part of the social responsibility endowed to everyone involved in production and industry sectors.
Supply and Demand


Pricing will not resemble a free market paradigm, so the interaction between supply and demand as it exists now will not determine anything.


Supply will be according to your demand, that means your demand will not be based on price, your demand will be based on supplying yourself with a lifestyle that is worth living – so the demand will change.
Because the demand will no longer be controlled by price, it will now more be controlled by the fact that you want to live an excellent lifestyle, that you want to change products – it is going to change what goods and services will be available.
You’re not going to buy ‘inferior products’ that you buy because it’s cheap and made in China – but it’s not what you would have bought if you had more money.

Day 173: Supply, Demand, Business and Scarcity in Equal Money Capitalism
http://economistjourneytolife.blogspot.com/2013/01/day-173-supply-demand-business-and.html

 

 

Scarcity and Pricing
There’s not going to be pricing control in terms of scarce resources, things are going to be available or they are not. It is controlled by its availability. If certain resources become unavailable, which is going to affect the products that are going to be available – then we will just have to take that into consideration. So for instance, if there is not enough fish in the sea, we will simply have to withhold from catching fish — the supply / option of fish disappears off the menu until the fish supply is re-established.

 

  • A Price will no longer be a number to be feared,  but a compensation number that will signify the value in return for one’s work or contribution/ creation. Price will contain enough to pay everyone an equal fair share which will create a sustainable satisfied and prosperous living condition, since people will be doing what they want to contribute with, while being equally supported as an equal participant.

 

Rewards                                                                    

  • Equal support leads to understanding how we can only thrive as a team and in consideration of mutual support, which strengthens our relationships at a community level.

  • No more will a price feel like we’re ‘Selling out’ but will instead be an expression of the work invested upon such goods/ services and its integral reimbursement to everyone that helped within the production/ distribution/engineering process.

  • Giving and receiving will be regulated by the price in itself, this will ensure that compensation, gratitude and remuneration is recognized and acknowledged by everyone as a collective agreement upon which our system will be based on: Constitutional Equality.

 

  • A guaranteed ability to buy means no more fearing scarcity, uncertainty, loss, poverty and misery – the power of acquisition will be giving and received as an organic mechanism based on giving and receiving in Equality.

  • No more stuff that breaks, all products made with the best quality

  • No more competition to ‘make the most money’ since all corporations will stop competing against each other – equal profit equals equal life support.

300. Redefining Accumulation of Capital in Equal Money Capitalism

“I commit myself to the establishment of a new Value System, as the Equal Money Capitalistic System, where we value Life over wants and desires and self-interest — and thus create a world of co-operation where all work together towards One interest as What’s Best for All Life, where all can in fact have enough and where no-one has to suffer because some decided they want more than what they need just because "they can" -  Day 45: Homo Economicus & The Invisible Hand – Part 3

Redefining Capitalism:

We’re going word by word in a very basic definition of Capitalism to redefine it, explore it and see what each word means and how we are able to re-direct every aspect of this collective agreement into a Best for All system.

Capitalism is an economic system that is based on private ownership of capital goods and the means of production, and the creation of goods and services for profit.[1][2] Elements central to capitalism include capital accumulation, competitive markets, and a price system.[3]

Capital Accumulation

Before we list out the problems, please read the previous blogs where these aspects have been opened up further to understand to what level accumulation is in itself ingrained at a psychological level that we haven’t ‘sorted out’ yet and that must be walked as an individual process to remove the conditions that have enabled fear, the desire for security, protection and accumulation as a ‘safe net’ which indicates that we have been living as fearful beings with no sense of self-direction, because it is now quite clear we can all contribute to stop that which we have identified as nerve-wracking, stress producing and anxiety causing aspects in our reality that can be traced back to Lacking Money and fearing for survival. Capital Accumulation is definitely something that you won’t find addressed in

 

 

 

Problems                                                            

  • Due to fear of survival we learned how to hoard/ accumulate money/resources/property for our own safety, which is against natural laws of physics wherein the relationship toward our environment is determined by our ability to exist within an equal relationship of constant flow, in and out and throughout,  just like breathing and blood flowing through our veins – instead, we’ve denied the basic sustenance to large sections of our own body, causing the massive disruption at a social and ecological level, which is what is currently driven by a compulsive desire to ‘grow the economy’ at the expense of anything and anyone.

 

  • Fear of scarcity, anxiety, driving oneself to excel/compete to get the most of the cake, which leads us to act by impulse and energetic drive rather than a common sensical behavior that leads to common weal.  This has obviously been an outflow of the previous point which has not been a ‘natural thing’ to man but a preprogrammed aspect of the intrinsic separation that we’ve created within and as ourselves toward each other, failing to see and recognize our equality – hence losing perspective of how we began competing against each other, missing out the realization that such aggressive competitiveness and rivalry to ‘get the most’ has been against ourselves. Also read: 115. Following our Dreams is Plain Delusional

  • Cultural value given to a luxurious life linked with happiness and fulfillment – this can be also linked with traits like freedom and liberty that were implanted during the 20th century in America by Edward Bernays whom we have quoted in this blog before with regards to his PR self created profession that is nothing else but propaganda to tame people’s irrational desires and link them to a means that can maintain a system of polarization kept by emotions of hope, faith and belief that somehow everyone could aspire to become ‘the greatest’ which means having the most money in the world and being fulfilled/ happy about it.  Also Read: 217. You Fear Communism? Why would That Be?

  • Greed is promoted as a ‘natural trait of seeking success’ and success is not seeing as the willingness to abuse another to make your own heaven on Earth, but instead it is considered as a clever move that is part of our regular indoctrination at home and school, which already reveals to what extent we have ingrained and accepted these beliefs and call it Education.

  • The more wealthy I am, the most value to mate: yes, considering that our drive is mostly sexual and/or for money, the linkage of a successful person with being sexually attractive and getting the ‘best display’ linked to showing/demonstrating one has a lot of power of acquisition/money/dominance, has become the most common drive nowadays that we call ‘social status’ which means props for seeking out partners and pursuing happiness, which is sponsored by a constant impulse by the media, ads and our general presentation around others, which is mostly motivated by these two factors: sex and money and both are linked to accumulation of wealth.

  • Self Aggrandizement:   even if this ties in with term ‘sex appeal’ described above, this also relates to a general status wherein family lineages endorse the same mentality onto children to perpetuate power and maintain a certain reputation at a social and political level – all based on maintaining/sustaining the same amount of dominance, power and control. Others simply seek a general approval to ‘be someone’ because we are taught that we are ‘no one’ unless you earn a good amount of money, enough to trump everyone else, making you a winner.

  • Excessive Consumerism leads to frivolity, vanity and self destructive behavior wherein ‘the self’ is exalted to a psychological entity deprived from any physical sense of living in a physical world along with  7 other billion people and an uncountable amount of animals, plants, insects and every single particle that is also here as life, most of whom are disregarded, abused, used and turned into a commodity for further support to the lives of a few that can afford a wealthy lifestyle.

 

  • The Soul of Money explains our current economic behavior as a disease to the body of existence that begins at a mind level and its relationship to the physical, this is the key to understanding why we have been so savage and inconsiderate to each other and why it is our duty to take responsibility to return our beingness to an equilibrium, because we have all collectively accepted and allowed this condition to exist.

Solutions                                                                

  • Equal profit – this will go within the consideration to place a limit to the ability to produce and consider the actual ecosystem that is being turned into a commodity. This measure is a communal decision to grant to each other equal amount of wealth,which will relief the levels of competition, spite and deception that exist when some are well known for earning more than others. This also includes eliminating economic rents which are monies coming from the capitalization of wealth in itself due to the acceptance of ownership/private property, which will not exit as such.

  • The Equalization of Classes – This doesn’t mean that everyone will have the same living conditions or be ‘the same,’ no, this means equal recognition of each others needs and desires and make them equally available/ given support.  This is of course not against the wealthy people , nor  turning the tables to give ‘more’ to  the current have not’s, it is about giving to each other in equality that which will construct slowly but surely and throughout a transitional process,  a level of equality which will signify the end of the endless struggle of the classes that has served as spiteful motives to implement one-viewed ‘justice’ ideals. Equality means All are inclusive and non-opponent.

 

  • Don’t need it, don’t buy it: much of what we consume is done for several psychological fulfillments and fears other than an actual use and necessity toward it. I have many times bought more than what I required based on this principle of scarcity, sometimes I don’t end up using it. So if I bought it already then it means it is my duty to now pass it on to another that will use it or give it to someone else that does use it. This will create a new  culture of recycling and giving without expecting something in return to those that will in fact use it.

 

  • Diverting one’s focus to communal well being within the understanding of the basic maintenance to generate our own physical well being and mental stability, which is a definition of happiness.  This will come from the understanding that feeding our obsessions leads to disease, self destructive and self consuming behaviors are individual problems that will still require support at a psychological level to learn how to correct one’s patterns, behavior and acknowledge individual responsibility toward other beings, such as children’s education/ parental support.

  • The identification of the self not as an individual only, but as the whole body of existence and all its parts as who we are. This requires a self-honesty process in order to then learn how to always act in this consideration: being every single being in existence to develop a genuine care and consideration toward the whole as ourselves, as equal and one.

 

Rewards                                                                

  • Eliminating spite, comparison, judgments, a general suspicion about one another fearing one’s neighbor/ family/ partners – this will enable genuine links with one another once that everyone is distributing wealth in an equitable manner.

  • Self-Honesty, Sincerity and Transparency are virtues that are almost impossible to keep in a world like today. This is why with the establishment of the Equal Money Capitalistic System, we can finally live these virtues and principles without having to jeopardize our own survival, because money will be a representation and a corrective tool for our cleared/ self-forgiven relationships of abuse.

  • Learning to genuinely ‘feel good’ at a physical level, which won’t be something bought with products or diversion, but rather a realization that we are giving and receiving in equality to support each other.

  • Secured future, secured living means actual Freedom: never again hoarding or accumulating because we will be able to rely on each other supporting each other’s well being, that’s what we all want and still wonder why we haven’t done this just yet!

  • Mutual trust and interdependency – this is the key to a functional and healthy society which is then representing the physical distribution of wealth generating a natural realization of all parts as all bodies of existence requiring equal support to generate an undeniable equal well being, that’s our dream come true essentially.

  • Rediscovering the ability to create and imagine as a projection of all that we can actually build/ construct/ realize  when working together – this is certainly not a positive thinking pipe dream, this is a certainty that comes when we understand the capacity we hold to direct our physical force as a drive to create and maintain common good. Self Expression will at last, be born from this physical understanding of self-support.

  • As we do unto others, so we do unto ourselves: this is the basic principle of Equality that is the foundation of Equal Money in its maximum expression, this is the kind of human virtue we can all finally cultivate once that our lives don’t depend on cheating and deceiving each other, self honesty at last: Accumulating what is Best for All.

Goods

“In economics, a good is something that is intended to satisfy some wants or needs of a consumer and thus has economic utility. It is normally used in the plural form—goods—to denote tangible commodities such as products and materials.”

- source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_(economics)

 

“A commodity, or a physical, tangible item that satisfies some human want or need, or something that people find useful or desirable and make an effort to acquire it. Goods that are scarce (are in limited supply in relation to demand) are called economic goods, whereas those whose supply is unlimited and that require neither payment nor effort to acquire, (such as air) are called free goods.”

  • Turning life into a commodity means that we’ve placed a price tag onto everything, making of this world a ‘market place’ where all that matters is profit and not the actual meaning/value of such product a a means to support Life. This is leading ourselves to the brink of self-destruction in an Economy where all that matters is obtaining the highest GDP for nations to compete in this global competition for the winning price of being the most developed economy, but such numbers never regard the actual living condition of beings, resources, animals and the damage done to the environment in such ‘transformation process’ of our living-resources to mere assets

  • Wealth is the defined by the amount of goods produced and consumed without realizing that money defines who gets the opportunity to produce such goods and the availability of resources, which is what leads many countries to invade others for the sake of obtaining such fulfilling need as the necessary goods to sustain laws of supply and demand, maintaining artificial values that in no way represent a pricing system created and destined to create a profit that represents the real cost of production that all goods should present.

  • We have given a name to resources for the sake of fitting into a belief-system that is our current economic system, becoming goods that are then suited to fit certain necessary patterns to create enough profit within a system where not a single denomination of money has been based upon life itself. This makes of our current system a great complex system of values that have no correlation to physical reality, and this is imposed to everything that can be sellable, such a everything that we denominate goods.

  • A lot of stuff is being created for the sake of profit, without such products being of indispensable need for human consumption and living condition- therefore, a lot of pointless jobs, industries and marketing purposes are destined to promote ‘goods’ that are far from being supportive for human consumption.

  • Animals, plants, nature are being extracted from their natural habitats in order to be turned into goods that can generate more profit – think of animals in a zoo, circus, ‘exotic plants’ or entire territories that become another factory machine to extract resources that turn into goods in a market with ‘free range’ and no scrupulous to decide what type of products are in fact being created as a necessity in the populace’s conception of what a ‘good’ means.

 

  • Clandestine goods are beyond the legal framework of regulations that can ensure the quality and nature of such goods are in fact beneficial for human use and consumption – this is a grave and ever escalating problem that only exits as such to illegally evade taxation and other permits that often violate human rights, societal codes of dignity and honor of living beings.

 

Solution:

  • Goods will no longer follow laws of inflation and depreciation according to market forces – or a few being’s decisions upon pricing – but will sustain a fair constant pricing that represents the recognition of the work/time invested upon the extraction, manufacture, transportation of such product.

  • Most of the production will be based upon covering necessary means to live life and satisfy/ better our living conditions, which means that anything that is less than supportive for human life will simply not have the workforce, resources and money destined for its production –this is how we’ll clear the space from useless products that do not benefit our living interaction and condition.

  • The good stuff as all the products that are meant to better our living condition  is what we will keep, sustain and procure in our new way of handling money as a means to buy what physically fulfills our living condition – this means that the definition of goods changes to being that which truly enriches life as a whole, as a community.

  • Free Stuff only makes our eyes go wide in excitement because of how we have – in the first place – restricted ourselves from our ability to have equal access to the Earth’s resources and all the tools and equipment that we have discussed within the previous blog 284. Capital Goods and Equal Money Capitalism –thus, recognition of there not being Free stuff implies that we then learn how to value life and work for it accordingly within the understanding of sustainability of as system where life is managed and maintained through an equal agreement of responsibilities and rights to profit in an equal manner.

  • Money won’t serve as a dominant factor within our transactions for the sake of profit making – the quality and nature of the good is what is of utmost importance, respecting all sentient beings from becoming profitable products in an abusive manner.  This means that everyone’s freedom to purchase and consume will be regulated by the sheer availability of that which will be made available to consume before it hits the market

  • Clandestine production will cease to exist once that there is no need to create piracy in the name of unregulated profit/to evade certain copyright and patent licenses – this will in turn also reduce criminal activities also linked with the type of black market productions that are mostly also a market that is Not beneficial for beings’ lives.

    Basic Solutions:

    Capital as Life

    At the moment – capital is referred to as intermediary goods – such as machinery and warehouses. Within Equal Money Capitalism – capital will refer to Life and include resources and people. Therefore – to value capital, means to value Life – and thus, all capital and all Life should be valued equally. For this – full employment is again a necessity.

     

    Free Stuff
    Within Equal Money Capitalism no free stuff will exist. This is one of the basic principles within economics (and physics) – There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch (TANSTAAFL). With anything that is produced or consumed – there is always a cost. If this cost is not represented and considered within the pricing of the particular good or product, one is in fact stealing. Currently, free stuff is used to compete for consumers at the cost of the labour force creating the goods – because they will be paying the difference.

PRICING

Pricing on products will no longer be based on expensive or cheap– or making profit –but rather sustainable pricing that ensures enough money in circulation to make the system function effectively.

  

Profit

Profit is not to be understood in the same way as it is now. At the moment – profit is what is left after wages have been paid and production costs are covered. Within EMC – there will be no wages – your profit will be your wage. So – every time a product is scanned when it is bought – the computer sees what percentage of the price is allocated to whom – and immediately the money-allocation happens accordingly. So – there’s no need to wait a year to calculate profits – it will be immediate.

source: Day 164: Equal Money Capitalism – Preparing the Road for Change

 

    • Equal Money Capitalism: We shift our focus from producing goods in the name of profit to placing our attention to what is here as Life and requires Life support – and accordingly resources are distributed. We’ve objectified our economic system, caring only about things such as goods and money – while losing all touch with what really matters, as being Here, being Alive and Living on this Earth in a way that is enjoyable for all Now and in the Future. – Day 183: The Myth of No Alternative and Equal Money Capitalism

 

 

Rewards and Communal Benefits:

 

  • We will stop feeling like we’re losing/abusing/ desiring to own more, because the understanding of how private property is redefined to use what is here to produce what benefits the community/ society, since money won’t be the driving factor to buy or sell, but a real enjoyment and actual necessity of the good that is bought/consumed

  • A new way of interacting with our environment and all natural resources will emerge, since there will be no need to be converting everything into a sellable item, this will give us the gift of realizing we are no longer abusing life in means of profit – clear conscience is what real peace of mind implies.

  • Life is Equal  – therefore giving and receiving in Equality as in having equal access to what we require to Live  is the main Principle of Equal Money = redefining money into a means that values life as a physical aspect that we give and receive, a ‘token’ for our agreement to ensure that any form of profit generated from the wholesale of goods is given and received equally as a recognition of the support and work done to benefit the whole – there will then be no desire to accumulate, but an understanding of sustainability and ecological considerations of preservation

  • No more animal abuse for the sake of turning them into goods that are sold as sybarite means to satisfy people’s ‘tastes’ that only exist because of the current power money has and the ability to buy the abuse of life.

  • Stepping out of our current self-induced state of hypnosis wherein we’ve made of money our god, instead of regarding life as a whole that must be regarded as the one and only real value in this world, and that includes All = Equal Value = Equal Money = Life for all as all in an interdependent arrangement of work force to produce that which contributes to create a real meaning of the word Good in our every transaction with money.

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.

Divine Economics: Money or God?

Inequality stems from the primordial disregard of everyone being one and equal. ‘God’ apparently made everyone ‘one and equal’ – yet God exists as a concept, as the epitome of superiority/ almightiness/ magnificence above its reality (his/its reality as creator) – and even more so, demanding to be worshiped. Is such concept existent within Common Sense? No, it is Not standing one and equal as its own creation. This is the most elemental form of hierarchy we have accepted and allowed as the religious-construct based on the existence of something ‘more’ than ourselves and neglecting Life in Equality.

Sounds familiar?

 

“Capitalism existed before the world existed –it is when god became defined that a cap was placed on value and from then all when for a ball of shit” – Bernard Poolman

Well, our current monetary system as the structure we are currently living in, is based on this God principle wherein: without Money = you die, which gives it the same power ‘god’ has to decide who lives and who dies, who gets to ‘heaven’ and who remains in hell.

We all worship money as well

We can see that without it we would not be able to be writing/ reading these words and I would probably have no food in my stomach at the moment, nor would I know how to read, write or understand what I am about to explain here.

We have created the ultimate separation through and as Money as the God-construct wherein by the single acceptance of something/ someone having the power to divide/ segregate, neglect and decide upon someone’s fate, we have all agreed upon our own enslavement as the current struggle everyone in the world is bound-to, as we see the economic system collapse while being held by some also almighty invisible hands just so that the fall doesn’t end up bruising everyone – apparently. This is our creation, our own trap and enslavement through and as the belief and faith we have placed on Money and God or God as Money =  whichever way, they have become interchangeable.

The Word of God

Following the ‘word of god’ as the ultimate say that money creates is then accepting and allowing a world wherein there can only be ‘one winner’ and the rest, would be bound to lose without having any possible choice to ‘change their stars.’ Ehm… didn’t god endowed man with ‘free will’ and ‘free choice’? Oh yes! You are then encouraged to ‘keep trying’ to win the Jackpot, which is the equivalent of fool-filling your eternal desires of becoming a God, translated as having multiple possibilities to satisfy all the earthly-lusty desires you may picture in your god-given consciousness: all the money and power in the world that could make you feel finally special, like you are finally ‘one with god’ in this make-believe reality.

And yes, I am aware that the joke is on us.

God as the laws that rule over our lives, that is able to punish and condone people’s actions at the same time as the ‘ambivalent force’ it represents, moves according to its own self-righteous mechanisms that make no sense at all within the actuality that is here as this physical reality. All I see Here in this world is living beings coexisting in the same ecosystem, requiring to live and interact with each other and the environment in order to continue living. What has God created and imposed within this picture? Religions, separation, groups, delusions of having to pay for sins, having to wage war against those that ‘don’t believe in the same god’, and even dare to commit all forms of atrocities ‘in the name of God,’ such as killing, mutilating, committing suicide and abusing life in various forms, beginning with the ‘divine command’ of converting others to believe in the same god.

At least religion has become an ‘option’ in this world – but: is Money as it currently exist an ‘optional belief’ here? No– unfortunately we can see which God is bigger here.


‘But… God Made us All as Equals!’

What is an elemental form of abuse? the disregard of each other as equals. That single idea and disregard opens up the road to hell. What do we have at the moment as excuses in this world to not do what’s best for all? The defense of ‘free choice’ and ‘free will’ as ‘God-given-rights’ wherein each one becomes equal and one to that single point of abuse and separation that God represents as a self-proclaimed ‘higher being’ in existence – whether you call it energy, love, god, higher consciousness, drugs or… Yourself!  It’s all equally created in our minds = there is No God In-Fact.

So…

Who is then responsible for the current reality that is striving in separation? Each one of us by the single acceptance and allowance of the current monetary system as GOD that decides who lives and who starves.

The heaven that was promised by God is the same heaven that Money can create for you on Earth: a fictional bubble reality wherein all your pleasures and sensual desires are fulfilled – or even stocked in heaps – all at the expense of those that put the actual work-force in motion for your de.light, working as slaves to have you store hundreds of pairs of shoes, several cars, several houses, dressing up the women and men that you’ll have sex with – all just for the sake of satisfying your senses, of making of this life something ‘fantastic’ and ‘worth striving for.’ What a wondrous plan have we created in this world.

Is being rich part of our free will? Is it our Free Choice? Is it available as a reality for someone that is born in starving conditions? Does a child that is born in war and only gets to live one month on Earth had such a choice as well? No? Then, who’s made the rules on this Earth, by the way?

Money is God and Capitalism its Religion

Re-ligare means re-unite – ‘God’ as a superior being that separates itself from what is here is a tremendous paradox within any religious system. Why requiring to believe in something that you cannot see?

We can see money, it’s just paper and coins – can we see such exorbitant values placed as ciphers upon the physical reality that is here as part of its ‘inherent nature’? No.

Why having to resort to a made-up idea of there being something or someone that cares for you? We rather ask ourselves where and how come we haven’t allowed ourselves to stand equal and one as the optimal condition wherein we can actually live heaven on Earth if we really wanted to? What stands in the way? Is it the god-given Human Nature that is the main obstacle for us at the moment? Yes it is. We can’t feel special if everyone is equalized, we can’t feel more than the rest, nor can we pretend to be ‘out of the system’ within such idea that sounds like a blasphemy for any regular religious being or well-bred capitalist.

It’s all in the numbers currently, numbers as the economy of separation, the ‘divine economy’ wherein no one dares to question the belief in the numbers as the lies told by statistics wherein the GDP is more like ‘God’s Damned People’ that serve well as slaves for Capitalism as the faith and religion to propagate to every corner of the world – yet their actual “Lives” are bound to a work wherein they are threatened to death if they leave, wherein they actually resort to commit suicide because of not being able to keep up with the high-demand – sounds familiar?

Time is Money and Money is God = This is the true capitalist faith

Why would a religion always try to keep its cohesive power upon threats about going to hell if the ‘word of God’ is not heard? – which means stopping going to mass and not clearing up your sin-bondage with the money out of your pocket and placed into the church’s basket every Sunday. The same happens with all nations that have become Religions wherein the faith and trust in god is equal to and one with the faith in money – and even dare to make it as cynical as placing ‘In God We Trust’ on their bills.

I wonder what a homeless person in America goes through when taking out the last dollar out of their pocket to buy the last thing they can afford to eat and reading through such words – would there still be some space left to believe in God?

What kind of God would threaten you with taking your life away anyways? What type of God would create a Hell just so that you could ‘strive for a living,’ living in constant fear,  guilt and remorse for all the sins that apparently could not be absolved by Yourself – but only by this almighty God that gives you the right to ‘be free’ in a world wherein you are condemned to starve if you are born in Somalia – or condemned to be part of the sex trafficking business if your parents don’t have enough money to feed you, resorting to sell you to those that will ‘at least’ give you some food in order to continue being just another money-making machine.

Where is God in that? I can only see Money being the primary motivation for such atrocities, Money as the equivalent to being God above others in reality.

God’s Divine Plan

What is ‘The Way’? – I read  today ‘Jesus is the way’ and all I know about Jesus is he said: give to each other what you want for yourself – and that’s exactly what we are saying within the Equal Money System: removing God’s god-like power that we have endowed to this entity – our creation – which is money. As redundant as it may sound, the point is to make it obvious how it is a self-created mindfuck – God is then self abuse because within its concept and creation, we bow down to an entity that is certainly NOT considering what’s best for all, it’s not providing conditions that are equal in nature for all.

God Must cease to Exist in order for Life in Equality to flourish here.

That can be applied to both god as Money or an ethereal version of it – which is the same thing because the physical money in itself is just paper, is just coins as metals, it’s ‘gold’ that has been elevated to the godlike honey-money type of delusion within our human minds –it’s just metal. Same with any belief – we have been bound to create all types of fears around god or ‘being judged by God’, being expelled from the heavens…  what worse judgment can we create other than perpetuating a world wherein we are bound to see poverty, suffering, wars, starvation and all forms of physical and mental abuse in our world every single day? What God would allow that?

Don’t you dare to think and say that this is ‘God’s Divine Plan’? Can’t you see the intrinsic evil implied in the sheer acceptance of such words?

If you can’t, then we must all be equally mad as god, as the delusion that has perpetrated this current reality to the stage wherein we value more an idea of ourselves as ‘money,’ as ‘superiority’ other realizing who we are as the totality that is Here as Life – how foolish can we be! Casting ourselves out from what is here as the reality that we have depended upon through money, through our creation. And fascinatingly enough, that’s exactly the same thing that ‘the creators’ of us human beings did, losing all sense and realization from the fact that what is here cannot be corrupted, abused and eventually depleted while pretending that ‘everything is fine’ or is following some type of ‘divine path to illumination.’

The light of god is about to deplete.

God’s Truth

The truth is we don’t need a godly/divine power to exist in this world. See for yourself: what powers your physical body is the energy created through the chemical processes wherein every breath allows the necessary combustion  to obtain the  nutrients you get from food that is Of the Earth to continue living. God as Money/ Money as God are Not sustainable in a world wherein the natural cycles of such Earthly-provision are violated and raped in the name of making the most profit in the shortest amount of time, in this allowing the abuse and exploitation not only of human beings, but animals and natural resources that have kept our ‘heavenly existence’ functioning for such a long time already.

God  or Money as we currently know it cannot possibly continue its existence in a World that is moving forward toward Equality.

The consequences of the belief of God and God-as-Money have lead us to the current state of the world we’re “living” in wherein wars are fought, people are killed, children are abused, animals are going extinct, trees are being cut just because of being able to make money out of it.

Why would God allow such atrocities in its name?
Why have we created a monetary system that cannot exist without abuse?
Why can’t we see that God/ Money is Our Own Delusional Creation?
Who’s the Real Evil in this World? A concept as money or god?
Or the creators of such words in order to abdicate all forms of responsibility and justify the worst atrocities in its name?

God has been our excuse to abuse and enslave each other disregarding ourselves as Equals yet claiming that ‘God’ created us all as such -

That makes us All Responsible for what is here.

Losing Faith in God?

How have we allowed ourselves to be ruled by the infamous fear of god, living in perpetual survival-mode as the fear of not having enough money, which is translated to being ‘dead’ to a system that thrives on energy as money, as the literal oil that keeps our machine-driven world going.

The problem is the human being that has created a ‘divine’ system that seems untouchable, unquestionable, unchangeable, following its word as a ‘must do’ and ‘must be’ regardless of the insurmountable evidence that all that is here is based on relationships of abuse, rape, murder, trafficking of living beings, starvation, corruption, sexual depravation, playing god regardless of whoever has to suffer the consequences for such self-righteous act. This is the ‘dot’ in the I that we have placed as the ‘coin’ wherein we have conned ourselves to a reality of profit-making frenzy equated as the ultimate –and accepted in constitutions – ‘pursuit of happiness’ as ‘man’s natural disposition’ in this world – no one ever specified if the ends would justify the means… I bet not.

Breaking the Divine Laws

Divine Economics as the holy laws that we have accepted and allowed as the ‘rules of the system,’ have been the shackles to make sure no one ‘gets out of line’ in the kingdom of God and all enter to play the game regardless of how fucked the rules of it are from the get-go– and oh! don’t you dare to even challenge the system, because you are immediately exterminated or cast out to hell or the equivalent on Earth as Guantanamo bay.

Is God our responsibility then? Yes, we have created it, it is ourselves, it is that uncomfortable alter-ego that we have tried to bound ourselves-to simply because we thought we would not be able to do this all alone, by ourselves. The comfort that money gives you when being in your pocket can be equalized to the comfort that some may feel by having ‘god’ or ‘Jesus’ in their heart – it’s a belief, it’s a feeling, it’s energy – certainly one is more useful than the other, because you can buy at least food with money but can’t buy food with God, Jesus or Love.

“What keeps food on the table? Money or God?”

Hence in common sense, we can agree that God and Money as God is a self-created concept/idea that must be Stopped for once and for all if we are really here to support ourselves to live as Equals.

The Delusion begins and ends within ourselves. This is the time, this is the place and you that read these words can easily say:

Life is Equal in all ways – Equalize all Money as Life  – this is the way to dissolve the ‘magical super-hero powers’ any ‘Godly’ concept as money or  self-inflated ego may have upon this reality.
That’s the way to crack capitalism, the last human religion.
That’s the way to end consumerism as the sporadic fool-fillment that we have dubbed as ‘happiness.’
That’s the way to start honoring ourselves as one and equal as who we really are – as Life
No more masters, no more slaves – no more God, no more Divine Eco-no-me.

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.

Is Inequality only in the Eye of the beholder?

Response to Patrick van Gompel


“Hello Marlen. No, I wouldn’t say that looking at starving people is inequality. To me, it is the eyes that are looking that make it unequal. The mind judges it to be unequal, the event doesn’t.


What exactly do you mean with equally supported? Is this humans only (by humans)?”

Following the explanation on how we as humanity have created a comfortable and convenient – only for some – illusion as a set of values in separation of ourselves, we see how we have seeped this make believe system through language which became the way that we built this entire world system, a system with a foundation and starting point of separation from who we really are as life. We can deduce from this that it is the mind that creates the inequality perception while beings/ things just ‘are’ and ‘exist’ equal and one to ourselves as all that is Here. 

However, within looking at situations wherein human beings/ any living being are being deliberately neglected to have equal living conditions, we realize that there is a problem and that such inherent quality of having an equal living standard as the realization of who we really are, is being neglected when such living standard is below or way above the basic requirements. This implies that inequality is then created by the human being according to a make-believe system as our current monetary system that enables this inequality to be a reality lived without even having the proper ability/ education to question it.

Hence even if there was ‘no mind’ involved in seeing a starving child, we would still see/ realize in common sense that they are NOT being provided with the necessary to live. Inequality is then not only a ‘mental perception of separation,’ but a reality that we are all well aware of is tip toeing around the brink of destruction as the ego of man has taken over this world/ reality – in other words due to/ because of remaining in a mindset of ‘not giving a fuck.’  Such disregard is already tangible as the manifested consequences that are visible in how the current world system of money and economics is already imploding as its proving itself to be inherently unsustainable. There is apparently ‘no solution in place’ until now.

I think life supports life, but the human mind denies itself and others support (at least, that is what the mind thinks.)
So to me that means that only in one’s mind something is not equally supported. Because without the mind, there would not be the ‘unequally supported idea/event.’

I agree from the perspective of how it is common sense that life is here and unconditionally providing us with everything we require to live and we are an equal-part of it– we as humanity have been abusing what is and has always been here, shaping it into a system/ construct of abuse placed within a hierarchical order wherein we have all tacitly agreed to have only some inevitably ‘on top of the pyramid’ and a vast majority way down at the base of it, having no ability to ever ‘escalate’ within such social-stratification.

Who/ what created, designed and implemented such hierarchical system that became our Ponzi scheme reality? We did, we as human beings immersed in ideals of power and success at the expense of others.

It is an inherently abusive system that has overshadowed that which is here as life, unconditionally; this includes us as physical beings that could definitely ‘be born as life’ = support life and be an actual equal-provider, manager and custodian of life on Earth – this is then not only human beings of course, but every single living being/ part that is equally here as ourselves. Thus it is so that only in our minds we can create such systems of inequality – yet! The way that  this reality is still operating reveals that we are Not yet living such equality as an actual physical and consistent equal support to all participants, and this is, once again, due to how this entire world system is built and founded upon inequality through the current functioning of the monetary system.  We created it.

Hence, what is the Equal Money System but an agreement to stop following the separation created at a mind level that has perpetuated as this current system to stop denying each other equal access to what is here = equal support to live as how we see is common sense to live and support each other with. In essence, you’ve nailed the point that we’re walking here:  Because without the mind, there would not be the ‘unequally supported idea/event.

Equal Money as an individual process of self realization is precisely that: realizing that all forms of inequality,separation as superlatives and diminutives, as highs and lows, as rich and poor are only mentally created systems of airy-fairy values that have No physical correspondence to what is HERE as ourselves, as life, as physics, as the entire world.

Equal Money means taking the mind out of the equation that is required to be implemented as a mathematical certainty to make sure that each one is giving and receiving equal access to the necessary means to live in this reality – that is then all based on living according to the physical, tangible reality instead of following a mind-system manifested as our current monetary system of debt, scarcity creating fear and inequality through each one of us having accepted the very existence of rich and poor as part of this world.

Whether it is in your own interest I doubt, but I do not know. If you see yourself as life, it is in your own interest. Or life’s interest.

See, within the premise of being one and equal and doing everything from that starting point: my interest = what’s best for all interest.

How does this work? It is ensuring that anything we do/ say/ make/ decide and implement must be in accordance to the consideration of such point being able to support life, support each individual living being as part of this world. Thus, if I see and realize that who I am is Life and equally here as everything else that I am aware of, I then support myself to actually finally LIVE in Equality with all parts that are here. What we are currently doing is merely surviving while believing that seeking for experiences and emotional/ feeling responses is what ‘life is all about’ – when it is absolutely not so in fact.

It is in the best interest of all to see and realize that we have lived in a very limited spectrum of our reality because of being mostly immersed in our personal reality wherein we don’t tend to consider that we are part of a single world wherein we don’t live ‘alone’ but with 7+ billion human beings plus innumerable living species that must also be considered as part of our reality. What would be life’s interest then? At the moment to create  the necessary structures and generate the paradigms that will support LIFE in Equality = an Equal Life System, an Equal Money System.

What I do/ what I don’t do is eventually be able to be visible as the accumulation of points that I am living and creating in every moment. It is also in the best interest of all to see and discover this realization through an individual process  so that we can stand as actual equal-beings that regard life as the primary point here wherein there is no personal-benefit sought to ‘get somewhere’ or ‘attain something.’ It is about living by a principle. Such life principle is able to be lived and applied by all in/as Equality. If I am walking a process to realize myself as equal and one as life, it is in ‘our’ best interest to do this and make of equality an actual reality for ALL. If ALL is considered – where does Self interest exist? in ALL as Equals as what’s best for All. This is as rounded and full-circle as can ever be.

But is life ever really threatened? I think not.

Life as the system that we currently know is certainly threatened. Just look at the numbers of how the entire biosphere is currently facing deterioration and depletion in various aspects while already having alarming rate of species going extinct that are not being considered when we continue scavenging the world to continue pumping up our ‘lives’ in a world that requires such an extensive amount of abuse toward the world/ nature, animals, plants and fellow human being only to sustain the current system based on profit, moved by greed and perpetuated by each one that accepts the current monetary system ‘as it is.’

From this perspective Life is being severely threatened, every single moment. Even as individuals, we are constantly threatened to ‘not make it till the next day’ if not having enough money to eat, if not having enough money to be able to ‘make a living’ which requires having an education and many other resources to then get to a position where you are more or less stable without having to exist in such constant threat as fear of not being able to make it till tomorrow.

The only ‘life’ we can talk about is the reality that we are all equally aware of and live as at the moment, where we can certainly say that a dead body doesn’t ‘cease to exist,’ but transforms into another ‘state of being’ = remains on Earth – yet it doesn’t obviously exist as what it once was a someone’s physical body powering an entire ego/ personality as the mind.

Does it matter if all of the humans die or even this whole world? Do you think here is no more life then, or that anything has been lost?


I find it far fetched to think that this whole world could die, that’s being mostly a desire in the back of my head that I’ve worked with to stop and see how I was only wishing this to happen – including the death of all humans – so that I wouldn’t have to ‘worry’ about creating a solution that could stand as a point of support and maintenance for everyone living in this world. How I have corrected my starting point and the way that I currently approach it is as a point of actual matters where this is not about pondering ‘what is important’ or how I perceive it to be ‘important’ or ‘mattering’ wherein I would only be playing out the same value schemes we’ve imposed on to life as what is here.

However, there is an actual reason of why we are here on Earth, why we are walking through the manifested consequence of us neglecting the matter that we are made-of as one and equal to what is here as the entirety of this reality. Life cannot be ‘destroyed,’ not even if everything was ‘destroyed’ could it all ‘cease to exist.’ There cannot be something ‘actually lost’ but only transformed into less suitable forms of life that we are here to correct/ align into a level of equality as equal-potential to actually live and express.

If all is life, what does it matter that some parts of it have an experience of what we would call starvation?
– Patrick

It is not something that ‘we would call’ – it is a fact. Place yourself in the shoes of such starving person and then ponder what is it that actually matters. The laxity with which we tend to see and live-as in this world is mostly stemming from having a secure point that is currently preventing us – dare I say defending us- from having to experience such harsh reality of having virtually No-thing to eat, living in dire conditions wherein you can’t get out of your house because of living somewhere in the middle east wherein a super powerful combo of killers are coming in to destroy and kill anyone just to generate some type of conflict to eventually place their hands over oil. This is just to place yourself in such situation and ponder what existing in actual conflict would be like.

If a single being in this world is being abused, if a single being in this reality is neglected from having equal access to that which enables us to live, we will not be able to actually be here as one and equal = common sense: ‘None is free until All is Free’ – that’s implied within oneness and equality.

What ‘matters’ here is what you now decide to do and live by if you have understood these points as well as the entire series of support given/ created specifically answering your questions.

I have an open question for you: what is preventing you from supporting what’s best for all? What is it that is still tampering your ability to stand up for life even if common sense is existent within you to realize the fundamental aspects of what we are proposing here.

One thing is certain: we can not continue neglecting our every day reality – we are suggesting that it is not necessary having to walk through the path of misery equal to the one that billions that are starving are living in, but instead we act and take this stand and commitment in life to ensure we transform the current reality into a system that can support everyone equally. ‘If we tolerate this, then your children will be next’ – that’s the line from a manic street preachers’ song that got carved in my mind as a reminder that it is within ourselves that we are able to stop this from perpetuating as an eternal enslavement from generation to generation. This is not about tolerating or not, it is about taking self responsibility for the transformation and creation of adequate life-supportive systems that we see are absolutely required to be implemented and lived in this world.

We cannot possibly go on like this, getting lost in philosophical terms and mind-elated realities wherein it is comfortable to ‘get beyond the physicality’ and considering only the ever-lasting aspect of the life that we haven’t ever actually lived.

Cool for the feedback,

Time to get real,  Patrick.

No more Children on the Street 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.
