Picture yourself in another’s shoes.

You wake up in a bed within a clogged room with other 19 people, you gaze out the window and see nothing but barbwire and steel barriers to prevent you escaping from what it seems like a prison – yet it is ‘only’ your workplace, a factory which is conveniently located in the same terrain as your ‘living place.’ You get ready to begin your 7 days a week job at 6:30 am wherein you’ll remain working non stop until it is 11-12 pm. Your job consists of making toys for people in the ‘first world.’ Somehow you try to question why people require such stuffed animals and plastic devices to entertain kids – easy: they got the money to buy what they are offered as products in the store.

Your work is insanely tiresome, you have been made to sign a contract of 8 hours while working almost twice as much as ‘the law indicates’ without it being even recognized by the “authorities” within the factory you work in – who by the way, don’t really give a fuck about creating any proper working conditions for you. There you’re simply a number, a machine that gets paid according to how fast you can produce.You are incredibly fed up because you are forced to work till dawn, you get dizzy and your eyes hurt but can’t stop. There is no time for a quick rest either. Sometimes you skip breakfast so that you’re able to save a bit of money which eventually gets you even more tired and sleepy while working. You are then pointed at for not being productive and your bosses warn you about getting fired if you continue to fall asleep in your workplace. By the way, you cannot complain as that will ensure you are threatened along with the rest of your workmates that dare to speak up about the needs and requirements for proper working conditions you may be pondering about demanding.

You have no minimum wage – it’s all production based which is the way that you are kept ‘motivated’ to work extra hours to get ‘more money’ which is never enough for you to be able to buy the freedom that you yearn for every single day. It becomes obvious that you don’t work because ‘you like it,’ but because there is no other way to survive in such tight conditions within a country that has ‘opened doors’ to the world to become just an outsourcing nation that provides cheap labor with no proper labor regulation which ensures to any investor, maximum profit and the best job done in the required timeframes. Key word: No one will complain.

You are sold a convenient idea of being able to live and be ‘looked after’ in the same factory place – yet you know that this is the only way to keep it functional because you’ve already come from far away in the province to get this job due to the harsh conditions of poverty you were living in before you got this job. Even though you hardly own things, you are wishing to save enough to one day be ‘free’ and do what you would actually enjoy doing in your spare time. Sadly so, this day seems to perpetuate in a never ending smokescreen that tampers your sight every time that you see yourself day dreaming while grabbing pieces of plastic as hot as 200 C – you wonder if the people buying such product would even know or care about the fact that someone is having a hard time while producing such flashy pieces of plastic.

You are part of the cheap labor in the Chinese toy industry, you help create what represents 95% of the entire toy production that is sold in stores in Europe and the rest of the world. Your work is part of the high quality standards that such countries demand while being completely oblivious to the actual conditions you work in. You are not allowed to speak to international press about your working life, you’re not allowed to complain to any supervisor because you are well instructed about the lies that you must say to them in order to earn 50 extra Yuan for answering with the “correct” answers to them. You have no other choice in a world where money creates biased conducts and where ethical regulations have become another pompous word that’s never considering practical justice applied to such abusive working conditions.

You are not allowed to affiliate or become part of trade unions because that would signify being threatened back by your bosses on going bankrupt and eventually end up fearing losing your job every time that you dare to expose your case to the ‘authorities.’ You keep wondering if you’ll ever get out of such living conditions, you like to dream about it, but the heat of the machines and the constant noise brings you back to a harsh reality wherein every second counts like a cent. You got blisters, burns, cuts and any other injury around your arms and hands because of those times that you have wandered off in your mind, dreaming about the happy lives that people that buy such toys must have while you are stuck in this menial job for a lifetime. You must wear a face mask which doesn’t necessarily prevent you from developing lung diseases from being constantly exposed to elements like chrome and mercury.

It is all just ludicrous. You are bound to create products that look nice and make ‘kids happy,’ yet you are desperately crying inside asking for the world to see and realize that what you buy is not coming from a fully automated machine that can produce it all at will – no. This is all your job, this is you operating machines for over 12 hours a day in deplorable conditions without any time to enjoy, live and express yourself.  You have no choice within your life and often wonder if having no job at all could be a better situation than living in such conditions while being ‘employed.’

In a world where consumerism is the ‘key’ to move this entire system, slave labor is the way  to maintain the desired ‘low prices’ that we always seek in stores, never pondering how come that such products are able to be ‘so cheap’ and ubiquitous in our reality. There is no ‘corporate responsibility’ that can give proper solutions or answers to the most common questions on the allowance and acceptance of this abuse. Everyone is equally participating in a system of betrayal. We have bound ourselves to an agreement of absolute disregard to fellow human beings. We’ve made of this world, the people, the animals, plants and everyone else in it part of the assets that can be traded to give the most profit to those that have set the rules. These include calling requests for higher wages and less hours of work “bad thinking” often chuckled at as if it was a ‘lucid dream’ that has no chance of being implemented at all.

We have agreed in this system of betrayal, a dog eat dog world.

Workers blame the factory management, the factory management blames the corporative policies being extremely tight forcing them to give low wages while requiring extended hours of work to fulfill the deadline to deliver the production. Corporations blame the consumer as not being willing to ‘pay extra’ to be able to create proper working conditions for people. These are all excuses we throw at each other like a ball set on fire to not create jobs and living conditions that can be best for all equally. This is because it is not at the best interest of those that require the perpetual existence of people that are bound to living in extreme poverty and being willing to do ‘anything they can’ to get a job and get to survive in this world.

My question is: would you like to live a life like this? No, I’m sure you don’t – yet millions of adults, youngsters and children are part of this current crime against life that is slavery – and this is all because of profit created out of a world that is taught to consume as a ‘lifestyle.’

This is all part of the data conveyed in the documentary Santa’s workshop created by Lotta Ekelund and Kristina Bjurling from Sweden, which is one of the main countries that have such toy factories running with no proper regulations in China.

 

None of this will exist in an Equal Money System wherein we are beginning already to become part of the solution within stopping ourselves from participating in the unnecessary consumption of products that serve no other purpose than creating profit in someone’s greedy pocket in exchange for something that isn’t indispensable to live.

The condition of ‘slavery’ in this world will not cease to exist until we all agree that we must stop the current functioning of the world which is based on buying-selling and earning ‘money’ – which is also created at will – from such transaction which benefits only a few.

We all must wake up from this slumber wherein nightmares are the day to day living condition of millions of human beings in this world that are living in such extreme poverty conditions that force them to survive through menial jobs, while others are bound to be starving to death.

Support and inform yourself about the solution and plan of action we are presenting here as the way to create a dignified living for all human beings. Become part of the voices that speak up for a world that is fair, a world wherein Equality as Life will mark the end of all our current disregard and carelessness for those that do suffer from having to survive in a constant hell wishing and hoping for it all to end for them someday.

No More Space Junk in an EMS?

There is a series of less known facts that are stemming from the ongoing development of the space-age crusades that we have not taken into consideration, this is with regards to polluting our world beyond the stratosphere. Yes, space junk has become a program in itself at NASA due to all the officially named ‘Orbital Debris’ that is orbiting around the Earth as an outflow of old rockets and satellites being left up there with no direction once they’ve fulfilled their task, which has been an ongoing process of over 5 decades now.

“Orbital debris is any man-made object in orbit about the Earth which no longer serves a useful purpose.”

The problem is having this great amount of space junk accumulated around the earth with pieces that can be as miniscule as screws, nuts up to the size of cars which are the most threatening pieces toward other satellites or exploration crafts orbiting around the Earth. 

Check the numbers for yourself:

“Approximately 19,000 objects larger than 10 cm are known to exist. The estimated population of particles between 1 and 10 cm in diameter is approximately 500,000. The number of particles smaller than 1 cm probably exceeds tens of millions.” http://orbitaldebris.jsc.nasa.gov/faqs.html#1

 

No More SpaceJunk in an Equal Money SystemThe Orbital Debris Research at NASA is mainly focused in stopping its current growth rate. There’s been some ideas on how to collect all the space junk within a specific mission having an explorer with a magnetic collector and go around collecting the pieces, though the pieces pose a threat to such spacecraft as well.

We often forget that even the smallest pieces can become a threat to such magnet due to the speed that they are moving at, which makes them potential bullets that can perforate holes in the magnet or the space vehicle itself, which makes this a risky move if one is attempting to collect junk that extends over the 40 000 km2 around the Earth.

Another solution which is simply a matter of ‘time’ would be to let them crash on Earth which is called natural orbital decay (uncontrolled) or in a ‘controlled entry’ which we will explain later on.

Just as anything, we are requiring fast, accurate and cheap solutions. Actually money or ‘budget factors’ remain the limitation to create ways to clean up the space around us.

Therefore because money won’t be a problem, we will only focus on possibly maintaining the ongoing research done by NASA to solve this problem as well as ensuring that any vehicle that is used for spatial explorations is well equipped in terms of being resistant enough to any potential impact by these objects.

This is certainly one of those consequences that are ‘out of reach’ for anyone to take responsibility for in a direct manner – yet we are in essence all responsible due to our use and current benefits obtained from all satellites in this era of communications, whose remaining pieces are the most common found ‘space debris.’

The NASA’S Orbital Debris Research currently focuses on

  • Modeling: both the debris collectors as well as new satellites that can stand or predict the impact of any of these pieces and be able to remain withstand such impacts.

 

  • Measurement: of all the orbital debris to have a clear idea of where such space junk is located and measuring the potential threat they hold toward other satellites.

 

  • Protection which is the development of new materials that can stand the impact of such pieces at hypervelocity and reduce all risk of being hit and damaged as that would imply, yes, more space junk if they become irreparable.

 

  • Mitigation – as we may understand, this would only mean ‘coping with the problem’ – there is no definitive solution as to how to get rid of such junk and it’s only focusing on the same points described above as well as ‘adopting specific spacecraft attitudes’ and maneuvers to avoid collision with debris.

 

  • Reentry is referring to the previously explained point of having this junk returning home by its own ‘natural course’ or by a controlled entry. This is done through ‘lowering the perigee altitude so that atmospheric drag will cause the pieces to enter the earth’s atmosphere more rapidly’ – meaning this would  cause their fall in a prompt manner. This is though the one that represents potential danger to Earth as the place where such junk could fall cannot be determined.
    Once that such forced re-entry is conducted one has to be subject to physical laws wherein different materials will either ignite upon entering the earth’s atmosphere or manage to remain intact as this is all dependent on the different points of ignition that spacecrafts and satellites are usually made of.

 

One thing is certain though, this is part of the consequences of disregarding the most basic physical laws of this world such as the gravitational pull that the Earth has which keeps objects surrounding it by ‘nature.’ We only cared about taking missions up there and placing satellites while seeing the universe as something ‘infinitely vast,’ never really pondering about our junk being able to stick on our side. 

Therefore, this is actually a point that remains with a great question mark in terms of what will have to be conducted in terms of either managing to clean up the space around the Earth or only generating more band aid solutions as new materials to make resistant satellites and spacecrafts to withstand any form of collision with any of these particles that are all around this world.

From an Earthly perspective, we haven’t even gotten to a point of solving our own garbage problem and we went up in space polluting the area around us, making it almost impossible for any regular person to become part of any cleaning campaign.

 

As it’s been mentioned throughout the Equal Money System FAQ, this will be a system of prevention and development through the consideration of all the aspects that will be affected at the long run. Within this point, money won’t be a problem to develop new ways of creating/ developing satellites and spacecrafts.

 

From a common sensical perspective, I’d put a halt to any current ‘exploration’ in outer space for the sake of finding ‘another planet that held life’ which could only drive us to not only be satisfied with polluting  the Earth which we are already mercilessly destroying, but also becoming a threat to other planets for the sake of bailing ourselves out from this planet now that we see the consequences of indiscriminate exploitation of resources, as well as following the multiple desires to ‘conquer space.’

This is our creation and this single point of the space debris must be seen as a cautionary tale at the moment so that we focus first on what to be solved Here on Earth. Space preservation is already being discussed which reveals to what extent out human scavenging tactics extend to, we now have enough shit to deal with in outer space.

Investigate the Equal Money System at http://www.equalmoney.org to see how money can become a single point of support for any scientific research or development that could prevent situations like this one in the future.

South African kids learning Mandarin: Not a trend, but a Future Investment

South African Kids Learning Mandarin - Equal Money will change who learns what

South African kids are being taught the language of the most influential economic world power which is supported by Parents that see this investment upon their kids as a way to secure their future.

Certainly this is not a ‘random language’ and there are obvious interests behind this language-learning encouragement due to the growing investment that China is  pouring over Africa and specifically in South Africa, where kids can get to write and understand basic Mandarin by the time they reach junior high.  This trend is not only seen in SA but all around the world including the United States where 1600 schools are implementing Mandarin as part of their curriculum for kids at an early educational stage. This is now topping over the previously popular language to learn which was Japanese. What’s actually driving this multi-language education?

Securing the Future

In an ever growing world of competence, climbing up the ladder of success is linked to the bigger picture as the world economy and the future tendencies of investment according to the world market. How does that get to influence children’s lives into learning a seemingly unique language which wasn’t popular to learn at all some 20 years ago. It is certainly linked to money and parents looking at the best ways of supporting their children with tools that will secure them financially speaking in the future.

 

What’s usually overlooked is how learning a language won’t necessarily mean giving ‘proper education’ to children. IN a world where money sets the rules and the languages to learn, there is a strong requirement of understanding that actual education goes beyond training children to make money in this world, basically learning how to be the best ‘survivor’ escalating the ladder of success.

 

What’s often overlooked is the requirement of actual Education based on principles that will create and shape human beings that value LIFE before Money and this is being overlooked around the world when it comes to realizing how we are shaping and molding – read “educating” children – based on survival and act-skills, instead of principles such as valuing Life as themselves, Equality, Self Honesty and Self Responsibility to support a change in the world which is what’s required, not necessarily giving more ‘weapons’ and ‘tools’ of survival in a world that’s become the most savage human market in terms of jobs and professions.

 

The Real Requirement is to Educate Parents

Because kids are unconditionally accepting the ways of the parents as ‘how things are’ and they  basically follow what they’re being taught and what they are being impulsed to accept as ‘normal’ in terms of how the world exists, we require to educate people that are parents or to-be parents to realize that the starting point of Education must change from survival and becoming money-making wizards, to an actual emphasis on principles that will allow the child to know that the way of walking in this world is not about competing or winning a game, but about supporting themselves and supporting others as themselves.

 

Children are genetically copies of parents therefore, we require parents to support themselves to transfer such self-realizations as seeing that Education goes beyond training a person to survive but it actually requires to change its starting point to that of living by Principles of Self Honesty, Equality and understanding how within each individual changing its starting point within this world, the world can change.

 

Within this we can see that children can definitely learn Mandarin or any other language yet the starting point and understanding of what’s most important within this world will be in place which is Equality as Life – after that any point of education within the current system can be used for purposes of supporting themselves effectively without missing the end of it all, which won’t be only becoming filthy rich and having the top jobs in their countries, but becoming leaders that will care for a change in this world, people that will grow up realizing that a change in the world is required and that the transformation will take place when the world is in their hands.

 

After all, Children are the Future of the World  – that’s what we always hear yet! If we continue perpetuating the same ways of the current world transmitted from parents to children = not much will change and we’ll just improve the survival skills with no actual change.

 

At Desteni we are focusing on educating ourselves the ‘adults’ in this world that will eventually be having kids or not, educating already existing parents to teach to their descendants how it is that we as human beings require an actual Education based in Equality, in consideration of each other as Equals with actual practical application that will consider an entire reform to the Education System which Is certainly flawed and money-driven as we’re seeing in this example of kids learning a language that would seem unthinkable considering that South Africa is nowhere near China – yet money rules the world and dictates what’s the next big thing in terms of money.

So, let’s make the parents the actual teachers of this world to breed a world that’s best for all – visit the Desteni I Process website to Educate yourself and Invest on Life Skills that can be practically applied no matter where in the world you are.

Let’s make children the actual Future of the world: a World of Life in Equality for All

Investigate the Equal Money System to see how Education will no longer be directed by money-making skills but Life Skills to LIVE and not merely survive.
