“The Pursuit of Happiness has become the Bizarre Runway of the Human Rave, where Each One can Pursue their Intent of Happiness Individually, without Competition, because “you can make your Own Rules about What makes You Happy. All you have to do is Exclude anything that will make you Unhappy and that will Inconvenience you.”
So, in this Process – we Now have Achieved the Ultimate Separation. In this Separation, we do not have to Care about anyone or anything else but our Intention to Win, because: “to Win is Good”, “to Win place us Above everyone else in our Own World and we become the Centre of our World. In being the Centre of our World – Only those things that work for us is Important…everything else, we can Exclude”. – Bernard PoolmanDay 298: The Power of Intent
 
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]

For context on redefining capitalism, read: Day 180: The Word ‘Capitalism’ in ‘Equal Money Capitalism Redefined

 

Competition
n    noun
1    the activity or condition of competing against others. ØEcology interaction between species or organisms which share a limited environmental resource.
2    an event or contest in which people compete. Øthose with whom one is competing: you have to innovate to stay ahead of the competition

 

We’re looking at one of the basic concepts in which capitalism operates as a philosophy of ‘the economic self’ that seeks to set any necessary new rules to justify self interest  as an individual freedom at all cost. It is vile in nature since there is no premise of equal support to actually fulfill such intention to begin with, which makes the ‘competition’ already a point of disparity, a rigged game wherein the entry to ‘play the game’ is not readily available to all and as such, it can only result in further separation and social polarization since there is no sense of collectivism within this operational mode.

Let’s keep in mind that competition is ingrained from our very family and education system, wherein the design of being the ‘winner’ is what is associated with a feeling of success and prosperity, disregarding the counter part that is relegated to being the loser/ inferior one that didn’t get the same opportunity to partake in such competition in a fair manner.

Within this, the exhausting need to remain ‘innovative,’ and competitive in terms of prices have lead to an over-wrought corporate indulgence in our society wherein all forms of deception are accepted and allowed without a second question, just because we see ourselves ‘outside’ of the game in being able to determine what type of products are sold, how are they advertised, what would be considered aggressive marketing and many other outflows that are currently happening in our society, affecting much more than just a consumerist-habit and infecting the individual’s self acceptance, self image and self worth in a world where all that matters is ‘making the most money.’

This is now all a part of the consequences we’re facing and as such, part of the basic concepts that must be aligned in order to implement the Equal Money Capitalistic System.

 

Problems                                                                         

    • What is the meaning of competition under capitalism?

      Competition under capitalism, is simply the right to life, liberty and property applied to the sphere of production and trade; free competition means that one is free to take an any action, unmolested by others, which does not violate the rights of others. This is the meaning of competition. In observing what competition is, please observe what it is not. It is this free-competition that gives rise to capitalism’s free-market.

    • source: http://capitalism.org/category/competition/page/2/

 

  • Free competition implies the ability to produce Anything you want as long as it will sell and you get benefits for your own self interest to pursuit your Own happiness: you set the rules and the system is used to ‘make your dreams come true.’ The vilest act within this is that it is only a minority that gets to achieve such dream and most importantly, it is only those that already own enough capital to materialize such enterprise in the first place, which means this is only a ‘free opportunity’ for those that are already playing in the major leagues within the Free Market game.

 

  • Competition in itself is not ‘evil’ it is the revenue/profit made that is distributed only for a few what is the problem, which means potentialize  the power that is already existent by the ones that set the rules at their benefit to get the most of the profit at the least expense in production.  This is how wealth is created for a minority under the premise of ‘free market’ and laissez-faire to avoid any form of corporate social responsibility.

  • The ‘Right to Property’ is the base foundation to allow competition since this entitles any person to set the rules and terms that pleases them the most to obtain the most profit at the expense of using the cheapest labor – slave labor – and the cheapest pay for the prime matter/ resources to produce their product, resulting in what is currently dubbed ‘Liberty’ to pursue self interest with the excuse of producing economic growth, such as elevating a country’s GDP where no human life is accounted in fact, only numbers matter. This is what ‘economic efficiency’ is all about.

  • The ‘Right to Liberty’ is translated as the right to produce anything you want, which is the reason why we have so much –excuse my word – crap being sold for the sake of making easy money. This includes the ‘liberty’ to engineer products that break after the warranty expires in our infamous ‘Planned obsolescence’ wherein the producer ensures the right to make more money when people are  compelled to replace their perfectly engineered malfunction.

  • Right of Free Speech is now a way to advertise products with the most successfully brilliant words that produce the most charming experiences within the human being, ensuring a returning clientele using the ever permeable predictive behavior that we all present as human beings the moment that we make decisions based on feeling and not within a physical common sense act of consuming what is indispensable to live.

  • The ‘Right to Pursue Happiness’ which is obviously the great amount of laissez-faire profit made wherein you can have the liberty to avoid as many taxes as you please as long as you continually expand throughout the globe and make the most people eternally subjected to your product which provides a sense of freedom and liberty to the population that can afford buying such convenient product or service as a reflection of our believed human evolution and progress.

  • Corporate tax bills are being evaded and pleasantly rising up the revenues without holding back on invading any other corner of the world that adopts the brand as part of one’s ‘lifestyle’ which is also a sign of success in such a ‘competitive world’ wherein the more  you crown yourself as the leader in your productive field, the more capable you are to get the most condoning of tax evasion, because you simply set your own rules and no government has the right to intervene,  because it’s a Free Market! Perfect example: Starbucks has paid no tax since 2009, yet being crowned with the highest revenues.

  • Monopolies have become the way to ensure a single way disguised competition, wherein it is in fact only a few people that manage the ‘free market’ rules at their own convenience, presenting ‘alternatives’ as ‘choices’ as a façade,  yet this being part of the illusion of choice presented to the public.
  • Competition is based on the premise of scarcity, survival of the fittest and the belief that ‘there is not enough for everyone’ which is then used as a point of Fear to excel at getting the most profit, spending the least for work force and prime matter, use the most innovative means to promote yourself and be the absolute Winner of it all. The word ‘collectivism’ as mentioned in the previous entry, is seen as an evil meaning wherein we all know that red-fear flags lighten up whenever the word Equality comes up in a proposal for a new world

 

  • Competition is set to raise the quality standards of what’s being produced or the service that is provided, however it currently mostly leads to using the most inimical means to gain the most clientele/buyers/investors for the sake of betting for the ‘fastest horse in the race.’ And this is what we have become: a race where the ultimate prize as money is all that matters, the price that we have devalued life to currently, where all that matters is win-win at the expense of abusing, exploiting, maiming, torturing and owning people’s and beings’ lives, just to make a few attain the ultimate pursuit of happiness.

 

Solutions                                                                      

  • Competition will be a single collective effort to better the quality of the product/ service and general well being wherein the organization in itself as corporation/business becomes their own reference point to ensure that quality is sustained or improved, resources are used efficiently, working force maintained at an optimum capacitation and interrelationships of mutual support. This ensures that the objective of the organization is at all times the realization of team work toward one single outcome.

  • Between corporations there will be no such rivalry and aggressive tactics to earn certain markets since there will be no such race to win profit. This will also reduce our current branding situation which has become invasive in our day to day living reality, wherein the sheer need to ‘win the market’ makes advertisement an additive to our already heavy environmental pollution.

 

  • Adding the basic principle of Collectivism and Equality to the distribution of all profit created by a business or corporation, wherein no longer will the price reflect the scheme of obtaining the most by the owners/ private property righters, but instead distribute all profit in an equal manner to every person involved in such industry/ business in order to benefit everyone’s pursuit of happiness in an equal manner, that means: Equal power results for all wherein Wealth is the distribution of profit in equal proportion to all participants.

  • Ensuring effectiveness in a company’s production will be monitored by any deficit created within the company’s revenue. Competition will thus become a measure to ensure that successful companies are the ones that are able to maintain a constant production and profit making while distributing the best quality of goods and services, which will stand as a point of reference to identify any flaw within other companies.

  • Collaboration and Cooperation :
Developing an economy that is based on the principle of: If you act in a way that is best for all, you automatically manifest the best solution for yourself as well. Considering that the world is a closed system and that we are not separate from the environment we live in – it makes sense to support the system as a whole in the most effective way – as this will ensure that we live in the healthiest and most supportive environment on an individual level. It is the most simplest common sensical  truth that if you lift up society as a whole – you lift up each one that is part of society as well.

    When a company is unable to cover its cost and pay out its wages, they will receive additional funding from a Fund to which the profits go of companies who make a profit that is larger than required to cover their costs and wages. When such redistribution is required, an intervention takes place where know-how is transferred from effective companies to those who struggle to cover their costs.

                Rewards                                                           

                • Equal Profit leads to the dissolution of hierarchical relationships that ensue separation and a general discontent that generates rifts in the ability to produce the best possible means to live. We’ll learn how to co-operate as equals and exist within the educational premise of realizing success and power only able to exist if every person is equally supported.

                • Equal right to be equally successful, no more fat cats and low-wages/ slave labor jobs, everyone’s fulfillment will be guaranteed, this is the real and sound recognition of Equal Rights.

                • Consumer and Producer’s satisfaction: no more planned obsolescence, no more corporate policies to evade taxes, no more indiscriminate use of resources to make the most profit with the least responsibility for pollution made and extraction-aftereffects since every corporation will be made accountable for the ecological footprint created as a result of the production process.

                • Fair trade: money will be well spent within knowing that no wealthy man is being made wealthier, but that an entire corporation as a cooperative is being equally supported, that is what Satisfaction guaranteed will in fact mean.

                • The Right to Life recognized as the ability to earn equal to any other person working in your cooperative/ corporation. This makes of competition not a race to earn the most money but instead, produce the best quality products and services for the satisfaction of the consumer.

                • Enjoyment of actual teamwork where no part is more important than another, but each one’s contribution is equally appreciated which certainly will allow us to value ourselves for who we are and what we do in an equal manner at last.

                    “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.

                    • 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.”

                    Problem:

                    • 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.

                      • 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

                    • 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                     

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                     

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

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

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

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

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

                     

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

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

                    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?

                    Posted in Accepted and Allowed Life Abuse, Capitalism is a Crime Against Life, common sense, dignified living, Divine Economics, Equal Money, equal quality living, God, Law is Flawed, life as equal value, make believe system, market forces, pay-per money, Profit-Making, solutions with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 25, 2012 by marlenlife

                    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.

                    2012 – Money Or God

                    Disposable Lifestyle Must STOP

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

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

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

                    Dead River

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

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

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

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

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

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

                     

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

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

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

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

                    We are Here, nonetheless.

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

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