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

– May 1st, 2013 by YourAnonLive

A Consumer-Cautionary Tale

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wow, really, wow.

See how this

works?

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

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

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

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

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

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

“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.

Redefining Profit in Equal Money Capitalism

Posted in Capitalism is a Crime Against Life, common sense, dignified living, economy, Education, EMC, Equal Money, Equal Money Capitalism, FAQ, sociology, third world country with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 9, 2013 by marlenlife

Ending the way profit currently works is giving an End to the basis of poverty and injustice in this world system, in essence eradicating Inequality.

Continuing from:

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.

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

The Ingrained Desire for Profit in the human mind is recognized as one of the most frequently identified obstacles to implement the Equality System. However, as we have outlined in the previous post, we only created a figure such as profit and made it a verb as a way to legalize the act of making money out of producing something, selling it, paying the cost of production and earning the surplus at whichever rate you want. The problem is when the cost of production is paid at a minimum wage – slow-wage level, which leaves the most of the money earned through sales to the company that hires the people, that sets the price and continues to capitalize their wealth by merely owning it. Same goes when people invade other countries to extract their natural resources and sell them as if it was their own – this ‘ownership’ in itself is the core point that has enabled profit to be a self-righteous disposition that presumes the following standards that we’re living in:

Problems:

  • The right to profit from mere ownership of money and private property that we have outlined before 283. Private Property and Equal Money Capitalism – this means the appropriation of the surplus profit that should be distributed equally to every single participant in the production/manufacture/distribution and retail sale of such good or service.

  • Stealing/High-jacking profit for a few and distant investors: within the commercialization of life, the life of community that may hold the most gold, the most oil ever gets to see any benefit from foreign companies that take the right to benefit from such resources, which means that stealing and its monetary value gets to be part of a place like wall street instead of being directly reattributed to the local community and the people that work within such businesses that are also locals earning the minimum wage in most cases.

  • Advertisement and Media being ubiquitous in our day to day living wherein we learn how to use the triumphs of our work – money – and spend them right in all types of products/activities that will make us feel ‘great’ and ‘happy,’ which is currently the main problem we’re living out when identifying life and success with buying and consuming. Big Problem that we’ll continue to discuss later on.

  • This also presumes that the person that has the most money and owns the most, is superior and more than everyone else, since money has this ‘power’ in itself to buy virtually Anything we want. We can see there is no consideration to life at all, nor is there any specific principle upon which products and advertisements are created accordingly – since product market regulation only focuses on prices, not the starting point of such product/service – which makes our product market an omnipresent temptation to buy/consume and as such to get the most money by any possible means.

  • Money is in the hands of those who will only make more money out of it. This is what banks do and that’s how the money-interest mechanism is what enables clean profits from the mere faculty of creating money, which means that it is a self-sustainable hegemonic system that we have All collectively agreed that ‘that’s how it is/ that’s how it works.’ Hence everyone wants money yet we don’t consider WHO benefits from creating money, as all money is debt and as such there will always be debt unless we change the way money functions.

  • Profiting from extracting natural resources – as we know oil, water, natural gas, minerals, etc. are great sources of income by people that were clever enough to invest money in these industries due to our energetic dependency, this is leading to the belief of ‘unlimited growth’ wherein this growth is leading to depletion without any one taking responsibility for the problems caused because in the end: we all consume them equally. However at the moment, we’re all breaking any sustainable cycle in the ecosystem.

  • Selling Out for Profit – this includes even that which should have been a mere point of freedom of expression like art, music, letters and how they have been also forced to comply to the market forces that ensure that such arts that have become industries can also get a ‘life of their own’ through profit, this has lead us to a severe crisis at a human level that we’ll explore later on- you can read more about it in Day 187: Why is Art so Expensive?

 

  • Artificial scarcity makes products more profitable upon the law of supply and demand – this is one of the arbitrary conditions we’ve accepted and allowed, this will also make of inflation a mere corruptible scheme from the past.

  • Planned obsolescence is a direct result of seeking to maximize profit at the expense of the resources that are used/abused, the cheap labor that is not only ‘labor’ but people’s lives that depend on low-end jobs such as people in the Maquiladoras that are paid only cents of a dollar an hour while all the industries have ‘free trade zone’ for it such as no taxes and no limit to the expatriation of profit. 

Solutions:

  • If everyone participates Equally to create a certain product/ service = then everyone must get an equal-share of it, that’s common sense, no matter if you’re the janitor of the company or the CEO or the factory worker or the guy that drives around the products for distribution or the one that makes the informational advertising of the product – which I’ll explain later – everyone should be equally rewarded for it. This is within the principle of understanding our economy as an organic function where all parts are vital for its proper functioning.

WHAT IS PROFIT-SHARE?
Currently profit is the money a company makes after they have covered their costs, including paying out wages. In an EMC – profit comprises of all the added value that is placed on resources – which is your labour. Therefore – within the price, the percentage share must be included of each one that was part of the creation of the product in such a way that each one ends up with an equal share of the company’s profits, so – there will be no need for wages – as the profit becomes your wage.
Day 175: The Economic Problem and Equal Money Capitalism
  • Maximizing profit redefined as generating the most common-benefit to all which means: each one’s work will determine everyone’s wage/profit share which is enough incentive to work together for a common goal, which is also a common aspect that we have realized works when it comes to generating team work and dissolve any possible vantage points, which equal-profit does quite easily.

  • No more public relations in means of Selling stuff to people for the profit sake, but rather relating the products to the public ensuring everyone is safe in using/consuming what’s in stores.  This is what’s called consumer’s attorney, and that would certainly ensure that no cheap products with planned obsolescence, poor manufacture and low quality materials are generated, because low production costs won’t be a limiting factor to develop the best product possible.

 

  • Giving and receiving: we must not forget that whichever we use for profit, is coming from the Earth and as such, the benefit we get from it must go back to the common weal equally, this is also the best cure to any idea of hoarding or capitalizing money. We all know that accumulation is greed and as such an organic process of in and out is what will maintain everyone within a level of health within and without as the entire system.

  • Equal ownership/ use – a great disparity that is created from some owning and being able to make money from their capital goods/ capital in general can be solved if everyone uses, everyone earns equally from the work done and everyone has equal right to the use of the land they work on/ live in. This is also explained in 284. Capital Goods and Equal Money Capitalism

  • No more private ownership over the land,  the extraction and means to obtain  natural resources – all resources will be part of the common weal and this implies that any form of privatization will cease to exist. Depletion of resources will have to seek for answers in alternative energy sources, which will also be relieved by focusing on Local economies as can be read here: 

With EMC, we are moving away from monopolies, where a select amount of big corporations has control over particular products. Companies will be far more regional and community based as companies will exist from a point of responsibility towards their particular community. Within EMC, providing goods and services is not an opportunity to ‘hit it big’ in the world – it is how one contributes to society to make Life on Earth a worthwhile experience for everyone. When companies are locally based and operational, transport costs will of course also be cut down, which will reduce pressure on the environment.
Day 170: Companies and Industries in EMC

 

  • Sustainability will no longer be warped by profit. This will be a strict measure to ensure that no further pollution, extinction, depletion and ecological foot print are continued for the sake of profit.

  • No more Bank Profit: Banking in itself won’t be a source of profit, but a managing service as it always should have been. This is explained in the following quote:

Banks in an EMC will exist as financial intermediaries, gathering surpluses to cover deficits in other places. So – the banks will be in charge of providing extra funds to companies who are running a deficit. This point will always be temporary and the required funding will lessen as there is an intervention that takes place and action is taken to make the company more effective and able to compete.

Day 167: Harmony and Equilibrium within Equal Money Capitalism

  • Using property to generate a common well is what will enable profit to be generated and distributed according to equal share – this implies that no more profit will exit by merely owning property to generate profit. This also includes the inability to profit from owning current scare resources in your property.

  • Many  jobs that are currently only existent as a way to promote or make the most money-such as marketing careers for example, will have to be transformed into information agencies wherein people instead focus on ensuring that the product is in fact beneficial for human use and consumption and that all quality standards are in place as well as all tags with relevant information in place –

  • Quality products will be the result of not having to minimize the cost of production but instead maximize the equality so that every person’s work is remunerated in an equal manner, which is what will re-establish justice in our relationships.

Rewards:

  • Your Happiness is My Happiness – if it is shared equally there will be no more hate-thy-neighbor because he stole your job/position, but rather realizing that there is no pressure to ‘get on top’ any longer since there will be no top but only people that recognize that group/team work is what matters to make everyone have a dignified living condition.

  • Aligning Profit with the Common Weal: A peace of mind will ensue from the moment that we are able to buy products that are no longer manufactured by people that are being treated and paid as slaves, this will be an actual gift of having a clear conscience since we will all be participating to generate the goods and services, so that we all understand what it is to be life/ to live life in Equality.

  • No more criminal activity, No more lies, no more corruption and deception to buy and sell for the sake of money, or abusing someone’s gullibility to be a compulsive buyer of a product that is not beneficial for them. This makes us all finally suitable to be trustworthy between each other again.

  • Equal Opportunity really means: everyone is able to have a job, everyone gets equal profit on that job, everyone is pushed to do their work the best way possible and as such realize that their labor is no less or more important than any other – the consequences of this at mind level should be quite beneficial to actually develop symbiotic relationships wherein competition won’t be to make the most sales but to realize that we distribute a product/ service that is of actual need and benefit for people that use it/consume it and as such, it’s meant to be made with the best quality measures and materials possible.

  • Instead of using psychological techniques to make people irrationally buy, people can work to become their ally to inform what type of product is best and which ones are not and as such, become a relevant and important key-person as a mediator between that which is consumed and the final consumer. Everyone wins

 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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

  • no more plumpy in an Equal Money System

Poverty made business

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

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

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

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

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

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


 

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

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

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

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

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

 

The End of Famine and Poverty in an Equal Money System

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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