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.

What Comes After Greek?

Posted in Equal Money System, Reform the Monetary System with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2011 by marlenlife

Greek's Bailout ENDS with Equal Money System78 Billion Euros have been injected to Bailout Portugal after similar efforts have been taken on with Ireland and Greece. What’s Next? Spain is facing similar trauma as unemployment rate goes higher and the reclaim for the current government’s restrictions is roaming in the streets of Madrid.

An add-on to this is the latest detention of FMI’s director Strauss-Kahn who simply couldn’t resist his ‘human nature’ and is now facing sexual assault charges which are shattering the ground of the already wobbly foundation of the EU as economical institution.

The question at hand is:

Will the Bailout for work for Greece ? Will ‘re-structuring’ the debt work?

Placing Greece and other countries out of the EU would double up their debt just by converting to their old currencies again.

Who would be affected by these countries going out of the EU? Those with the most juicy inversion in it which is the reason why Germany is wanting to ‘soften the debt’ at all cost.

Almost a year ago while visiting Germany, there was a lot of hatred towards Greece and their on going situation. German citizens were complaining about having to pay ‘the Greeks’ squandering’ with their taxes which only creates further separation where these type of dependencies exist solely as a way of a forced support that inevitable goes beyond the financial-border and creeps into people’s minds which breeds discrimination from people in a certain country.

There must be a consideration towards the inherent separation that’s created at the level of individuals in these countries wherein one is ‘feeling abused’ for paying the others’ ‘squandering’. This can only result in further underlying violence, hatred and discrimination between nations.

Why is the individual not considered as equal within this? How come we’ve made of money the eternal damnation upon people’s pockets, people’s identities as ‘nations’ and claiming to be such position just because of how a system ‘functions’, a system that WE have created as humanity. That is sincerely insane.

Now,  Spain has been trying to keep itself out of the ball game in this but it’s already facing people’s demands due to record high unemployment of up to 21%.  How long can the EU continue rescuing countries?

We realize that none of this forced-agreements on bailing out countries or ‘reducing their debt’ as a way to keep these countries on board will work in the long run. There’s been several asseverations that the EU as an economical institution won’t work – this is due to being mostly still covering up inherent flaws within the nations that are using the Euro while having severe differences and disadvantages to other countries using the same currency.

Is this about creating more money? More institutional support? Re-Structuring the Debt?

No. More money would result in more debt and more fictional band-aids placed to an inherent crack that’s always been existent as the structure of the current system we’re living in at a worldwide scale just based on how money is created and currently existent.

This ongoing situation of bailout parties is certainly placing the Euro at risk – this  places on the table the actual requirement in this world of an overall reform to the Economical System, this system as it is cannot possibly keep on going bailing out countries with non existent money that’s only based on Debt.

Re-structuring debt only means covering the sun with one finger – this won’t work either obviously.

We are proposing an overall reform to the current economical system into an Equality System wherein Money won’t be based upon debt and money won’t be only existent to give more power and authority to some than others, but will be an actual consideration of all countries and all people requiring to live without debt, to actually get to an equal stage that is no longer based on the past of debts and crisis.

This is what we are facing all over the world – not only in the Euro Zone – Since I’ve been aware of my country I’ve learned in school about the stratospherical numbers of the debt that’s been in place and that cannot be possibly ever paid back as that would mean, in most cases not only in México, the entire bankruptcy of the system.

Forgiving the debt through the Equal Money System is the way to go.

Research the website, realize that this is a change that can only come within the understanding of common sense and not current economy laws.

This change will come from people like you and me reading this blog – time to take the actual politic stand that we’ve all been ‘waiting for’

‎”The most urgent issue is the question of leadership and perspective in the working class. The opposition of workers and youth must be armed with a conscious revolutionary program based on the critical political lessons of the past century of struggle. That requires the building of new parties based on the program of socialist internationalism

Twice in twentieth-century Europe, the same fundamental contradictions of capitalism, including centrally the conflict between global economy and the nation-state system, led to world war. The only force capable of unifying Europe in a progressive manner is the working class, on the basis of a revolutionary program to overthrow capitalism”
