 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]

Service

ORIGIN
    Old English, from Old French servise or Latin servitium ‘slavery’, from servus ‘slave’.

Services

 

Problem:

  • Profit sets the trend: Services are only currently existent as a means to obtain  money/profit without considering their actual need and importance within an actual functionality of the system itself.  This implies that many or the jobs that currently exist satisfy a certain requirement for profit, but in no way consider an actual involvement of all parts within creating/producing something that is beneficial to all life, but rather represent the relationships of enslavement that we have allowed through the system of hierarchy where those with the most can pay other to do the job that no one else wants to do.

 

  • People are replaceable: this means the usual ‘you can always pay someone else to do it’ and in this, a being’s living condition is not considered, but replaced if not ‘fulfilling the profile’ which is how people are currently existing in constant anguish and fear of losing their jobs.

 

  • Not all services are paid equally: a gardener, a janitor does not earn the same that a doctor or a ditch digger – this creates inequality at all times which is what we have to focus on realizing all services are equally important and valuable within the consideration that a doctor would not be able to perform his surgeries in an unclean area, nor would he be able to get to work if there were no people building cars, paving the roads, maintaining the gas stations and the list goes on, we tend to lose perspective of how interdependent we are  to function properly

 

  • Shitty jobs/services are given and taken by people that we have deliberately ostracized to not have opportunities to get a better education and achieve an actual equal-opportunity as anyone else to have a decently paid job. This perpetuates the various stratus in society that maintain our critical status quo of inequality.

 

  • Taking any job  to pay debt -  this is another outflow of our current system wherein we’ve forced each other to do jobs that are in no way fulfilling or an opportunity for further development but only to earn sufficient money to pay for basic services and goods to live, or any other form of debt.

 

  • Mechanical jobs for endless hours – this is what we currently know as slave labor which is a direct outflow from wanting to get the most profit with the least inversion on raw materials and work force, and in this nor resources or human work/social capital is taken into consideration as living beings, but only used as a means to get the profit.

 

  • Slave Labor– this is within the consideration of the amount of industries and corporations that handle products that are certainly not of prime necessity, this leads to more garbage, more greedy pointless consumption and more enslaving jobs that are not remunerated in a fair manner, this often implies child labor and menial conditions to live in, like all the people that currently manufacture our gadgets and clothes, among the rest of our foods and ‘goods.’

 

  • Competition at work between individuals/ companies leads to an aggressive constant bombardment of advertisements to be the ‘favorite service provider,’ which transforms the human being’s every day living environment into a constant advertisement campaign wherein life is reduced to buying/consuming and paying for someone to do  a certain job without any form of reflection/ introspection on what it is that we are In fact paying another to do for which could be done by ourselves or paid in an equally-acceptable way as those that we currently consider earn ‘good money.’

 

Solutions: From Slavery to Equality

  • By supporting everyone with equal education and equal support to develop our skills within an optimum direction to support activities and creation of products that better our living condition, we empower each individual on an equal manner, wherein each one will decide what do they want to contribute to work with in the community/society. This removes the constant ‘low-paid-jobs’ that are considered profitable but in no way do they represent an actual human expression that supports the real development of ourselves as humans and along the rest of the environment that equally forms part of our resources used to live/ at the service of life.

 

  • People won’t be ‘replaceable’ but rather value themselves according to the equal right and opportunity to direct themselves and work in the activity that is most beneficial for themselves within the understanding of the sustainability that must exist within the system.

 

  • Equal profit*, Equal Share will enable people to value the activity that they do as the actual physical support and assistance that they provide at the service of each other as equals. This is the only way in which our services will be there to serve a common well being interest wherein money won’t be the goal, but a mere receiving reward for the service given that enables the system to function properly

 

  • We have the technology for ‘shitty’ jobs so that people’s lives are not wasted away by doing ‘menial jobs’ that we can all take care of individually as part of our inherent responsibility, as well as distributing these jobs within all of the people, so that some hours a week working on collecting garbage and/or managing public services does not become a dragging experience.

 

  • A lot of useless products and enslaving jobs will be transformed onto activities and professions linked to, for example restoring the environment.

 

  • By everyone contributing with doing the currently called ‘shitty jobs,’ we can all stop enslaving one or few people to do the whole work for ourselves, these jobs will eventually disappear as people understand how another’s freedom represents us standing up to take part of such delegated – or better said- abdicated responsibility.

 

The Solution

Each one who contributes to the provision of a particular good or a particular service in a company should receive an equal wage – because each one is a necessary participant within the process. It’s not because one is doing physical labor while another is handling management that the one should earn more or less than the other. If you don’t have people doing the physical labor, you can’t provide the good/service – and, in the same way, if you don’t have people managing all the operations, the provision of goods and services will be impossible, or at least highly inefficient.
When each one receives an equal income – prices can be calculated in such a way that each participant/each worker in the company receives an equal share of the profit and that, with this income, each one is able to live a successful and fulfilling life.

Day 182: Will we be Feeding the Fat Cats in Equal Money Capitalism?

 

Goods and Services that are a Basic Human Right cannot be put up for auction where only the highest bidders can access them. Within EMC – basic human rights will be provided to each one and will be provided by government, funded by taxes. The inefficiency of public companies is firstly often orchestrated to get the public to demand privatization, having the population play right into the hands of the elite – and, secondly, corruption plays a major role. Within EMC – privatization of basic human rights will not be permissible by law as it violates the Constitutional Principle of Equality. In terms of corruption, politics within EMC will be far more transparent than what it is now and politicians will have a much smaller role to play. You can read up on these points at www.equalmoney.org/wiki/Politics.

Day 176: Will the Elite Manipulate the Public to Push for Privatization in EMC?

 

 

EQUALIZING WAGES – COOPERATION AMONG CORPORATIONS
If a company at any time makes more money than they need to provide each one with their equal share of the profit as well as covering their costs – those monies will go into a fund that is responsible for assisting companies that are not making sufficient to cover their costs and provide each one with their fair share. That way a balancing effect takes place so that all companies are not only cooperatives in how they cooperate internally – but all cooperate with each other as well.

Day 175: The Economic Problem and Equal Money Capitalism

What about those who provide services instead of goods?
Q: How do people earn an income from jobs that don’t produce a product that is purchased, or will everyone need to do a job that produces something to be bought? Or does compensation also happen as paid from the government not just consumers purchasing products?
A: Any value that is added, whether through providing goods or services, will be compensated. So – the same principle applies to employees in companies that produce goods and employees of companies that provide services – the price of the good or the service is determined in such a way that all participants receive a fair share of the profit so that all end up with an equal income. In terms of those working for the government or providing government services – they will also receive an equal income – this is the purpose of taxation.

 

Q: How do we make sure everyone is employed; will we have to create meaningless jobs like in the army – dig a hole, cover a hole?
A: There are many jobs that require to be done that aren’t being done at the moment – the Earth is barely taken care of. Remember that a company’s responsibility will extent further than merely the production of goods and services. Each company will have a Compassion and an Environmental Department.

Day 168: The Future of Integrity with Equal Money Capitalism

 

Payments for Non-Products?
Q: How do people earn an income from jobs that don’t produce a product that is purchased, or will everyone need to do a job that produces something to be bought? or does compensation also happen as paid from the government not just consumers purchasing products?
A: Yes – any value that is added – whether to a product or not – will be compensated. So – for government services – you simply do your hours and receive an equal income like everyone else. Whenever you purchase a product or a service – you are always paying for the labour involved, as such there is no difference when paying for a product versus paying for a service.

Day 169: Equal Living within Equal Money Capitalism

 

Rewards:

  • If everyone benefits from people doing what they like to do, what they are good at and where they can develop their skills further, we will certainly all benefit from a best for all quality living standard because people will be self-motivated to contribute to a standard living that is no longer based on survival and competition to get ‘the most profit’ but instead, a communal agreement to give to each other what we would want for ourselves, which is what Best for All means.

 

  • No more child labor, no more prison-factories, no more misery payments, no more coercible jobs

 

  • Our integrity as humans and equals will be slowly but surely restored once that money cannot make us ‘more’ than other or having the power to pay others to do what should be each individual’s responsibility within the community/ society.

 

  • Elevating our living standard depends on everyone’s natural enjoyment and further development within any activity or skill they actually want to do/ perform and support with, which is within the understanding that what’s best for all is best for you and me.

 

  • Having the tranquility of a steady job will reduce stress from being able to be fired, no more non-contracts that jeopardizes our financial stability since everyone will be able to always have an available activity to earn money from with equal-profit benefit, which means: everyone wins.

 

  • No more slave labor, more useless products means no more tedious mechanical jobs and instead, using our means to implement innovative ways to fulfill our living necessities with alternative means/ products and activities, since money won’t be a ruling factor to decide what gets to the selves in our supermarkets.

 

  • Being able to contribute to basic activities that make our lives sustainable is a grounding and honorable job, it is what we all currently require to do: working on the fields producing food for a season or two and become aware of what making our lives sustainable is really about – this will bring the real and practical understanding of our interdependence with the ecosystem and each other as equal participants within this social organism.

 

  • Mutual appreciation for what we do for one another in a way wherein we all become aware of how much everyone’s contribution enables our lives to be functional –this will no longer be something taken for granted as we do now because of money, but because we will be equally participating, getting involved and re-establishing a sense of community that we have only sought through religion, political affiliations or sports – instead, we’ll learn how to enjoy each other once that money is not something we compete against each other for.

 

  • This all means a real value of who we are as the real capital as life will be lived and understood and this will se the foundation to never again seek to abuse one another for the sake of ‘having more,’ because the collective well being will override any sense of self-interest act of selfishness and sectarian benefit.

 

  • We will enjoy sharing our skills because sharing and working together won’t mean working with the enemy/competition but rather working together to elevate everyone’s living condition.

World’s best Education is based on Equality

Posted in dignified living, Education, Equal Money, Equal Money System, equal quality living, Equality Development, protests, teachers, third world country, tuition fees with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 5, 2012 by marlenlife

Finland has become well known for having an overall ‘high standard living’ compared to the rest of the world. In an Equal Money System, ‘high standard living’ will simply become Equal Life For All. By this we mean that every being will be born into a world wherein all support is given as a birth-right, regardless of any of the current perceived differences such as nation, race, family background, national economy or any other points that are creating/ enhancing the current social inequality in this world.

Finland’s example proves that a society that is regarding equality over competition thrives because the basic principles are understood: Equality empowers people = empowers a Nation, they understand that a nation’s backbone begins within the Educational System. When you have a system that inherently requires social inequality to keep its hierarchical structure in place – regardless of how this should go against all “constitutions”- an often large sector of the population is deliberately left behind, unable to afford quality-education; this means that what should be a birth-right is currently only possible to a selected few, leaving the rest having no option but to remain uneducated  while only working to be able to survive in this world.

It is almost impossible to create a point of Equality in an Educational system that is based on profit, competition and general profiling to maintain different sectors/ classes in society with a limited amount of opportunities to upgrade their position in society. Finland’s example remains just as that, a nation’s implementation that will still place them above the rest of the world which is how nations/ economic blocks are able to then use such superior position to their advantage. Equality is then missed even within their internal consideration of equal-quality education, because they are leaving the rest of the world out of their equation.

Let’s look at the rest of the world.

Kids are born into certain families, certain countries wherein their choices will be defined/ limited by the inherent amount of money they are benefitted by. This is unacceptable, it is obstructing a being’s ability to live because of being born into a pre-configured world wherein not everyone is able to ‘afford’ quality-living which includes quality-education. Imagine yourself being born in a third world country where you get to know of all the benefits and thriving positions other kids around the world have, while your ‘choices’ for education are non existent, where education could even be something reserved for only a few that doesn’t include ‘you.’ This is still exiting in this world and it becomes quite obvious that we cannot continue accepting social disparity and polarization in the name of  money/ profit/ greed with the nice tag of a nation’s economical standard in the world.

Education must Stop being a Product!

It’s been placed on the table how the existence of ‘private schools’ and ‘public schools’ creates a rift, a point of separation and discrimination that everyone becomes aware as soon as there is an understanding that higher costs = higher quality education. In America as well as in South America, private schools = good quality education, whereas public school means poor quality education – with their handful counted exceptions. Why have we accepted such differences as ‘usual’ and ‘normal’ if they are only based on money? Why would only a few get to be educated to become leaders while a vast majority is kept at a lower level so that they cannot possibly progress to obtain such ‘leadership positions,’ while being deliberately relegated and  bound to a single limited outcome throughout their entire lives: poverty, slavery, many of them not even knowing what ‘going to school’ is like.   This is certainly a crime against humanity, it is unacceptable.

Isn’t it an actual abuse toward ourselves as humanity whenever we deny each other the ability to have proper quality education, just because of the hidden-mechanisms (money) that  define our access to it? We’ve made of education another product that is sold according to people’s budget wherein the result is poor people having poor quality education, while rich people/ people with enough money can have access to better education. Elitism is formed this way which is the source of general social discontent due to the obvious separation it creates, not only at an educational level, but in all aspects wherein the rest of your life will be defined/ determined according to the schools that you attended to. Such discrimination is not an option, it’s a reality according to how we’ve set up this current system based on profit where Education is also part of the game.

One of the greatest problems at the moment is teachers not being paid sufficient amount of money, which is forcing many to quit their jobs – even if they genuinely enjoy them – and getting a more profitable one – often becoming entrepreneurs – because they’re not able to keep up with their bills. This is a single sign of decay within the educational system and all because of lacking proper incentives for teachers to continue their labor.  The same point applies for students the other way around – higher tuition fees are the cause of perpetual student-loans that end up being an endless debt at the end of your career without having any possibility to pay the money back, because there are no jobs available. No more endless debts because of Education.

Today we got to know that America is now around place #23 in educational ranks around the world – is this another sign that competition and a profit driven education is no longer working in this world?

Even the so-called quality-education in ‘prestigious private schools’ is still only focused on preparing children/ people to survive in a profit driven world.

In an Equal Money System there will be no need for such incentives, rewards or demands on higher wages and lower tuition fees because the entire system will have a set standard living that will be best for all in equality. This means that all will be equally empowered to the benefit of themselves and the entire world. Right now because of us existing in separation in the form of nations, cultures and  economic blocks,  it seems like the current order is ‘unchangeable,’  but it is actually a matter of understanding that if we want to prevail as humanity on this world, we all have to consider implementing Equality as the basic principle in our educational systems. What does competition brew? Further fight for survival wherein no one learns how to collaborate with each other for a single outcome that benefits everyone involved.

‘Divide and conquer’ has been part of the current system. Hence the key for this is getting money/profit/ survival out of the equation and considering the actual opportunity we have at hand to create a system that works in equality for all, where money becomes a single accountability tool for what we will already know is our responsibility.

Education is the indispensable first step each individual takes on to understand why Equality must be lived/ understood as a living principle to create Social Equality at all levels in our reality. We begin with ourselves by understanding how we have created ourselves in consideration of all aspects that we participate in our day to day living. Each individual’s life is taken through a process of self correction to learn how to live as Equals and eventually become part of the support to assist and support others to do the same – that’s the Equality point in application until everyone is ‘on the same page’ so to speak.

For this, we all require to educate ourselves first and the current educational systems are still flawed and immersed within the capitalist system, still having money as the ‘driving force’ behind it from any angle you can see it. Therefore, a never before seen process of education at an individual level must be taken into consideration before continuing trying to implement solutions without looking at the basic principles that must be considered as a premise to the creation of an Equality System. We are already doing this at Desteni and the Desteni I Process which are the ways in which us human beings can correct ourselves to be genuinely caring for  ourselves, this world and everyone in it as Equals. Concepts like Self Responsibility, Self Honesty, Self Correction become the key points to live by as a process of re-educating ourselves to consider the current problems we are facing in our reality and see the common sensical solutions that can be implemented once money stops being a limitation for it.  We can only conduct a change from the root by beginning with ourselves.

Equality Education- Quality living in an Equal Money System

Education is a pivotal point in the Equal Money System and is already part of our political agenda being walked by several beings – including myself – that are already proof that it is possible to change the current ‘human nature’ that has created this current system of social hostility and economical disparity. Thus, the solutions placed here stem from this process of self realization in terms of understanding how Equality must be implemented in all ways within the system. It is only through implementing Equality as the living principle in this world that the entire world – not only a few nations – can thrive and become that which we have always desired our lives to be.

Choices of education will be one and equal: the best possible. It won’t matter where in the world you’re born in, you’ll be equally empowered with tools that allow you to take self responsibility in this world effectively, while learning ways in which we can contribute to enhance our living conditions in a world that will no longer be based on survival, profit and elitism. We are already learning how to cooperate and coexist with each other, working together for a single outcome that will not be for further empowerment of nations against each other or as a form of competitiveness between individuals, but will always be based on what’s best for all,

Imagine how cool it would be to not have only ‘teachers’ as the ones with the responsibility to educate children, and instead virtually anyone could support children/ others in common sense. This is actual equal-empowerment, which is what Education should be at the end of the day, not only limited/ confined to classrooms and teacher-student relationships,  but lived in any activity/ task that we participate in.
