343. How are We Going to Change the System to Equal Money?

“Self Change is a process of establishing power over yourself where you have abdicated it” – Bernard Poolman

Problem                                                                

  • None of our current political powers stand in fact in the best interest of all. Most of us have understood that ‘civil responsibility’ implies voting every 4 or 6 years and that is everything we require to do in order to have our taxes be used to pay only a few to ‘take care of ourselves.’ Even if we vote, we are well aware that the options that can be voted on are not in fact leading to actual changes in the system – we only look for the ‘least corrupted ones’ or the ones that benefit our ideals, without even ensuring that the words proposed in political campaigns are in fact implemented in reality, which is what has always happened in our societies.

    This system is outdated, we complain about it and have left only a few that are ‘in power’ by our own acceptance and allowance to decide ‘How things work,’ which means deciding how money is used and where it goes to. Therefore the current political crisis that we face wherein we have realized we cannot trust our governments and representatives is demonstrating that we cannot only delegate our power to a minority that we also happen to be complaining to for ‘how bad things are’ right now without proposing any solution to it other than protesting and complaining about ‘the system’ that we have all voted on.

  • In terms of Economy, there has been no democratic participation in the creation of our current Monetary System or ‘Monetary Authorities’ like International Organizations that are supposed to be regulating the Global Finances to conduct our world to an actual development in Equality. We all know this is Not so, nor is it expressed as an actual aim in these organizations. Instead we have all complied to money as is without a question, without pondering how it is that our very own lives can fluctuate from one day to another based on what happens in the financial Markets and banking systems. This has been so far the greatest abdication of responsibility wherein we have placed our Trust upon Organizations that are not being regulated by the government, which is why as we now know corporations stand as the greatest actors in our current Corporate Capitalism, wherein the ability to influence the laws and regulations to their own benefit if is being legalized by our political powers. (For more information on how this works, suggest to read: Day 9 – Welcome to Nowhere: an Introduction to the Tax Haven Economy and Supranational entities.)
    This is thus how our Power Structures has been sustained throughout our history, forgetting about the fact that we are a majority and we have the ability to Decide What is Best for All

    Furthermore, those organizations that should regulate these Monetary Authorities are formed by the same ‘powers’ in the global scene that maintain the same hierarchical system to the benefit of a few potencies only.

 

  • There is no Self Responsibility by ourselves as individuals and participants within our societies toward our political and economic systems. We have allowed ourselves to be uninformed of how the political an economic systems work, we haven’t questioned why we don’t learn the basic mechanisms of how our society works in our education systems. We have merely complied to follow laws, rules and regulations that dictate how we live our lives, how much money we have, who gets what resources at a global level, because we only learned to care about ourselves individually – not collectively.

    We never learned to regard each other as equals,  to ensure we look after one another’s well being – this means:  why have we accepted and allowed ourselves to be ruled by desires, hopes and dreams of everything somehow ‘getting better’ without looking objectively at the evidence of us remaining complacent to the  facts that our reality is revealing to us – why haven’t we taken a stand to propose solutions instead of complaining about it? Our Reality is the reflection of a constant  This means that the political and economic powers are the result of our individual abdication o Self Responsibility – and it is about time this Individual Participation in the system is Realized with all its consequences and benefits that we are about to explain here.

Solution                                                              

Changing the System is not an option, it is a Must Do in our current living conditions where we say we don’t have to wait till everything falls apart to implement solutions. We have to become Self Directed individuals that are able to determine at all times what is Best for All and integrate this living understanding to realize that it is only through working together, uniting with a common goal that we can create a change that is not only existent at a System Level, but that has its origin in the Individual that is in fact the building bloc of a new society that is Based upon that which is Best for All.  Let’s look at the solutions at a political, economical and social/individual level.

 

  • Change at a System level will be implemented through Politics – we already have the necessary structures to conduct a Democratic change in the system by using the principle of One Man, One Vote as Direct Democracy. (See: 324. Democracy and Equal Money Capitalism)  Therefore we will use our ability to associate,  form a political party that proposes solutions for the problems that ourselves as the 99% of the population already see are required to be implemented: a new way/ a new System that ensures that everyone’s Life is Guaranteed from Birth to Death to have access to all the goods and services we require to have the Best Living Condition that we all want for ourselves – this is the Principle of Equality and Equal Money. By having this proposal as an available Choice in our Elections, we will definitely now be able to exercise a vote that can lead to a Best for All Outcome. This is how we can legitimize the Principle of Life in Equality and as such, become the living principle that guides an other rule or regulation, which means that our entire hierarchical structure will be redefined in order to comply to this new living principle.

 

  • Through Politics we will implement regulations on Corporations, Businesses and those that currently have the most money in the world, because the principle of Equality implies that all profit generated in these organizations must be Equally distributed in all participants. This is based on the essential principle presented in Equal Money Capitalism of Equal Profit Share wherein we ensure that no illicit enrichment takes place by only a few, but instead everyone is Equally benefited by the revenues that would usually be allocated to only a minority in the hierarchical systems of organizations – in an equality system everyone will be granted with equal share of the work that contributes to the production of goods and services that make our system sustainable. This is thus the necessary measures to be taken to ensure the 1% no longer have ‘Power’ over our political structures without any democratic participation in deciding what laws corporations follow and how we can determine what is best for everyone and the environment in their activities and production, which should always be at the Best Interest of All in Equality.

 

Suggest Reading: Politician’s Journey to Life – “A blog that defies and challenges the notion that being a politician and taking responsibility for public policy are reserved for a privileged few instead of being the inherent responsibility of all able persons.”

 

  • At an Individual Level, this is the first and most important point that can already be taken into consideration and direct application: we have to Educate ourselves on how it is that each one of us have been responsible for our current living conditions of limitation, fear, abuse and complacency. We are the main actors in this problem, and this is how we suggest to take the first steps to understand and investigate how our Mind, works and how we have accepted and allowed a Value System in separation of ourselves as life.

    Thus  we require to become Self Responsible for how we have created this system we all live in, to understand how it works, which implies that each one will become an active participant in Political affairs as part of our collective responsibility in our social interactions and personal relationships. This has not been lived this way because, by ‘delegating our power’ we were depositing our ‘best interests’ in the hands of a few, thus were able to be directed and controlled with great ease – we already see and are the consequences of this.  Therefore  it is about time that we realize that it should be part of our best interest to be informed how we have created the system so that we can participate in the necessary solutions that will be initiated by our individual consideration and understanding of how our thoughts, words and deeds are the very keys and tools to generate new living conditions that in fact benefit ourselves and each other in Equality. It is through our vote, our participation and responsibility that we can ensure that the best living condition for everyone is guaranteed and lived as a reality for all.

 

 

 

 

Rewards                                                  

  • We will all learn our individual responsibility within our lives so that no person or organization, law or mandate has power over our collective decision to live in the Best way possible in Equality. Having our Lives in our Hands will be the most comforting experience wherein we will ensure that our security and well-being is generated by our direct participation in deciding what is Best for All, where we all become active participants in our society, contributing with our skills, our expression and labor to create and maintain a system we can all be proud of belonging to. This will enable us to Honor ourselves as Equals, Honor Life and be able to Express ourselves without any form of monetary impediment to not do so, as long as our expression and decisions in life stand within the Principle of Equality as what’s Best for All.
  • A new living era in our world is possible if we realize that we have the power to change how we relate to one another and how it is in fact that the future of our world, our children and our lives is in our hands.  So, let’s Make of this our Day to Day Living Statement: I am One Vote for Life in Equality.

342.Monetary System in Equal Money Capitalism

Equal Money advocates a Monetary Reform. Money will cease to exist the way it does now, Economy will cease to exist as an attempt to legitimize a system created for means of control and abuse. Money can instead become a tool to redeem our past, and ensure that we collectively agree to make it our all access pass to that which we require to live – it is a tool, we redefine it to support the Living Principle of what is Best for All.

Problem                                                                

  • We have different forms of values imposed onto things, all of them representing all the value schemes that we have created in order to dismiss the common sense fact that life is equal in everything and everyone, yet we have created use values, exchange values and the intrinsic ‘value’  which is supposed to be part of the object or material in itself according to, once again, a scheme of values that we accepted and allowed without a question. Who decided that Gold was meant to be the Standard again?Who decided what type of materials would become our Key Commodities?  Our ‘Monetary Authorities’ wherein no democratic decision was taken into consideration to do this. What does this mean? That the price tags that we currently see are the result of historical processes that we are dragging along as ‘how things are and have always been’ that have no foundation whatsoever on a physical and inherent quality of things and understanding of life in itself.

 

  • Therefore, it is ourselves as the Human Race that have schemed the world system – the responsibility lies within each one just by using money. You and I currently use this faith and belief-system item as Money that we ‘carry around’ as our  ‘all access pass’  to get what we need. Even if it is a ‘fiction’ in itself, we have made it quite real the moment that we accept and allow the fact that only with these papers, coins, digits on a screen one can have an assured means to live.Till this day it dawns me how the entirety of who I am and how I live is defined by the amount of money I have in my pocket and/or bank account, that is my ‘security’ and my ‘freedom,’ which is limited to all of us to say the least, otherwise we would not be here advocating to review the fallacies that we have built as our prison of words and values in this world.

 

A bit of History

Before World War I the Global Financial System was organized around the International Gold Standard System. In theory the Gold Standard was an Exchange Rate Regime between the countries that were already the main participants in the global trade scheme.  The Gold Standard was implemented to:

1. Maintain exchange rate stability – meaning that currency and metal would not change

2. Maintain convertibility between domestic currency (yen, dollar, pound)  and a predetermined amount of gold. 

It was actually in 1717 that Newton shifts the previously placed Silver Standard in 1696 by John Locke by arguing that Gold is ‘better.’ From 1867 on, Gold became a standard for France, Germany, US and Japan. This means that the adoption of this Standard became a form of ‘membership’ between countries that would become major economies. The GS  set the ‘tonality’ of who would become major potencies around the world. The coercion point thus became the introduction of this Gold Standard to other countries which is what formed the Financial Integration between these nations, it became like ‘the Gold Club.’

Then came the World Wars where inflation, hyperinflation, competition and chaos reigned on the global map. The destabilization lead to further attempts to reinstate the GS were made to no avail i.e., Bretton Woods System in the 1940’s by the UK and US  until in the 1970’s when after the glut of dollars came a dollar depreciation, the effects of the War in Vietnam and the sinking Market Value that lead Nixon to abandon the Gold Standard. From 1971 and on we’ve  had Floating Fiat currencies –this means a definitive dissolution  of the ‘gold club’ encouraging major economies then to move away from the Golden Standard and instead, these proposing the currencies themselves to become the new ‘standard’ for trade – hence minor economies pegged to major currencies like the Dollar and the Euro.

Where is the coercion as the imposition of all of these changes in the Monetary system existent at the moment? Through International Organizations like the IMF, the World Bank, Agreements like the GATT under which small economies integrated themselves within this ‘liberalization of trade.’ In 1994, all the ‘big economies’ left the GATT and create the WTO – World Trade Organization which included all the countries with developed economies. This is where the ‘rules of the mob’ are set wherein if countries wanted to become part of the ‘Great Leagues’ in the international market, they would have to comply to the rules set in this organization, and that’s what we currently have: a membership within the WTO means one is  willing to play according to the rules that those at the top of these International Organizations and Institutions that decide is ‘best for their interests’

 

  • We certainly have only complied to all of this monetary history since the17th century and every time we use money, we legitimize this story and process of adopting our monetary system ‘as real.’  We directly comply to this imposed mechanism that certainly serves Imperialistic moves to benefit only a few.

 

  • The question is: can we see any ‘Value of Life’ regarded in all of this data? There is non, we have always been subject to ‘greater decisions’ that we’ve complied to as godly rules without a question.

 

  • Once again, who decided that ‘Gold’ was the standard? And even more so now: what is ‘backing up’ our Fiat Currencies? Nothing but sheer ‘agreements’ where no physical and mathematical equations of this reality are taken into consideration to ensure that everyone has access to what we require to live. This is how we can say there is No Common Sense in our Monetary System, it is all been a belief system and illusion.

Solution                                                              

    Can one just create money out of nothing – isn’t that what is causing the current money-crisis?

    Indeed. What we’re proposing is a fiat money-system. Meaning: money that is created and issued by a central institution directly and declared as Legal.

    With regards to the current money-crisis, one must understand: it is not due to money being created ‘out of nothing’ – but solely due to the procedure according to which all money being issued has the nature of a loan with interest.

    This is completely against what we’re suggesting: because the point of having money is not to use it to exploit people for power and control, but to make life easier -which is by the way what children in schools are being taught about why money exists. Unfortunately they’re not being told the whole story.

    Money will be a tool at your disposal that gives you access to living-recourse. It will not be a ‘loan’ – because you have a right to it: it is your money.

 

  • The value of money in a New Monetary System in Equal Money will hold the Value of Life as its one and only Standard – this is what will determine the equal distribution of resources to everyone wherein Money will become a way to administrate this distribution in  orderly manner. Money is necessary to coordinate the distribution and management of our resources so that even if everyone will be granted access to them, any form of abuse is prevented and measurable by using Money as a counting tool based upon the physical resources that will be produced and commercialized.

 

  • Money will stop existing as an Elitist and Mob-Mentality Pyramidal scheme that uses coercive means to ‘grant power’ to some and leave the majority out of the game.  Instead our International Institutions will have to adopt the understanding of this new  living principle wherein Money Equals Life in Equality . This means that organizations like the IMF, World Bank would have to adopt this measure or simply cease to exist, because any denial to the new value system would imply a desire to continue exerting means to have power and control over nations, and that is unacceptable.  We will have the ability to decide How our International Organizations are formed and if they are even necessary in a world order where Life will be the guiding principle between Nations and individuals.

 

  • Because all we have known thus far as humanity is that Money grants you access to obtain what we require to live, we will Still use Money to regulate our behavior with our access to buy and consume what we require in order to understand in a practical common sensical manner how spending our money on that which enables us to live is the priority, and how the rest of the products that were manufactured for mere profit-making purposes will have to be rebuked from having a place in our markets. Equal Money means Dignifying Life at all levels which implies that the use of our resources will be equal to the Value of Life we will be guarding at all times – we won’t use the Earth’s resources and the People’s Labor/ Participation just to ‘make money’ because that won’t be a possibility in a world where there is no ability to ‘make more money’ as a form of abuse, but instead every action and decision we make will be based on the integration of the living Principle of Life in Equality: What is Best for All.

 

  • Politics will still be the means to implement this New Monetary System through Direct Democracy- this is because we act according to the premise of using what is already functional as our system to walk the necessary transitional process to redefine our political structures to an equalized self responsible organization of individuals, wherein money also becomes a mere ‘assured access’ to what which we will realize and understand as a living responsibility and right to our lives – politics is the only way we can ensure that each person’s vote counts: we take responsibility for this history lived so far and walk it toward a new outcome where we can eventually go past the schemes, models and concepts that once stood as the form of power and control upon life.

 

What will the Equal Money look like – how will it work?

Most practical would be to have all the money be digital – because then it can simply be send from one (or many) central point(s) to all the individual accounts. Which would then require digital payment technology at every shop/store/warehouse and chip-technology. So it will be very similar to the payment systems that are already in place.
The type of biometric identification depends on the technological advancements that are most suitable for authentication purposes. The current biometric state of the art technology includes DNA readers, palm and fingerprint recognition, and iris scanners. Embedded technology is also a possibility.
The point here is to have a digital system which can also be implemented through using bankcards which already have a chip in it for further security.
Another reason why digital money is preferable – is that just as easy as the money is created, it must be able to be deleted. This would happen as soon as the money is used at the first payment. When I for instance buy myself a pair of shoes, that amount of money that I’ve just spent will not be ‘transferred’ from my account to the account of the store, it will instead be deleted from my account. Because remember: the purpose of the money is to make sure there is equal access for all to basic living-resources. Therefore once the money has served its purpose, there is no reason anymore for it to exist.

Rewards                                                  

  • A New Monetary System that is actually agreed upon through democratic means an stands within the principle of Life in Equality means that there won’t exist International Organizations and Institutions dedicated to ‘Balancing Powers’ in the global scheme of ‘major’ and ‘minor’ economies, because all nations of the world would have to reside within the same common understanding that a new value system in the form of a currency will have to be adopted by all to equalize this new understanding of our relationships toward that which we all require to satisfy our living conditions in the best possible manner which means quality, sustainability, security and coordination to ensure Equality is the principle that guides our lives.

 

  • No instability, no more hostility, no ‘beg to thy neighbor’ and cut-throat agreements to maintain a disparity in hierarchical systems at a domestic and international level. The only union that will exist is the realization that the outcome of this new value-system – whichever numbers it takes – will be to ensure that every single Nation is having an equal-stand at an International Level. The same goes for each individual having the necessary means to live by virtue of their work and contribution to the system.  This will eventually change within the context of Equal Money System – yet within Equal Money Capitalism, our work is our access to that which we require to live.

 

  • No more will certain nations step up as hegemons behind International Organizations that control the value of money at a global scale –  instead every single nation will be guarding the same principle where people’s well being, life’s well being is the core point of focus – no more wars and offense-defense balances, war mongering processes or economic sanctions being schemed for imperialistic means, instead every nation will ensure that their organization is acting in accordance to a global understanding and agreement to generate a New Monetary system that establishes the foundation for an Economy based on the Value of Life itself: ensuring that every individual and nation is equally benefited with an equal distribution and availability of goods and services, as well as generating the best living conditions as our environment to live in.

331. What is Best for All in Equal Money Capitalism

“Can you Walk Alone as That which is Best for All Life – Giving without Wanting to Receive? Giving, because you Understand: when All have Enough – you will also have Enough. That is the Principles of Equal Money Capitalism and the Foundation of Desteni. Bernard Poolman 

 

Continuing from:

307. CapitalismUS: Pursuit of Happiness

308. Might Makes Right: CapitalismUS

 

 

 

Problem                                                                 

 

  • Why is it that we speak about What’s Best for All instead of Power and Wealth or Happiness for all? Words contain an entire history of relationships of abuse wherein the polarities of winning and losing, master and slaves are embedded as the impositions that have been accepted as the order in our world: some win and some lose – this has been the world order throughout time, but we never questioned why such inequality was existent as ‘how things are’ without any other reason or justification other than because they are stronger, because they are wiser, because they are more, because they were born that way, because god says so. All of these excuses have been acceptable throughout various stages of our history, yet it doesn’t seem to be different now where some people believe that poverty is just ‘what we’re born into,’ as if it was a genetic condition that would by default deny you the ability to have sufficient money to live – however, we have all become gods to limit such basic right to the majority of the people.

 

  • The problem comes when we propose what’s best for all as a universal law and principle that guides all other rules and regulations, yet we can be called out for having a god complex in doing so, without realizing that there has been no god or emperor that has established such common well being in Equality ever, actually as humanity we have already done such a move when deciding who are the ones that should be enslaved and who should be ‘the rich and powerful ones.’

 

  • But we never questioned such wealth and power and look at How such wealth and power was created and sustained in the first place.  The problem is thus a matter of concepts with which we have generated our own condition to fear anyone that wants to implement a ‘new order’ such as a principle, a law and right for everyone without exception to be supported to live in the best condition – what happens is that what’s ‘Best for All Equally’ is not understood, because it has never been given as a living right, because everyone’s ‘needs and desires’ are believed to be different and special, but it is really not so when we consider we are all physical beings coexisting in the same planet. These are the physical facts upon which we’ll consider our Best for All definition.
  • We have to realize that we already have a society that runs in an efficient manner – the problem is that: not everyone has access to a well developed society or living condition,  because of our acceptance of ‘how things are’ without ever questioning inequality, which is the same as accepting ‘power’ and ‘control’ as some form of immovable order that no one can challenge, that has been our demise.

 

  • There’s also the psychological conditioning wherein we have learned to fear each other from having More than ourselves, fear being robbed, betrayed, deceived and ultimately killed – but we haven’t really established how we generated such conditions of constant fear between each other, which is through the accepted and allowed belief of ‘lack’ and ‘scarcity,’ along with the survival of the fittest mentality. This has been the psychological separation between one another fighting to ‘have the power’/ get at the top/ be the best and have the most without questioning  – but why haven’t we just given to each other the same access to what we all know we want and make peace on Earth?

 

 

 

Solution                                                                

 

  • We all have basic needs which are the fundamental points for survival: food, water, clothing, health care, education, housing which entails all public services like electricity, sewage, waste management and all the furniture in it, education, a job or means of getting money. Those are the very Basic requirements to sustain ourselves in a decent manner – however we propose that this is not yet enough to make our lives the Best way possible, but only keeping everything within a limited framework.

 

  • The  considerations that will make our lives the ‘Best’ imply that which makes our lives be comfortable, practical, secure and enjoyable using technological advancements and any other innovation for it. This is how we can add means of communication like computer, cellphone or any other personal gadget, transportation, child care, shopping centers, time for traveling, sports clubs, entertainment and recreational centers, well preserved public areas, free universities,  best public services like banks, government, data collectors, press, media, family education centers, behavioral skills development, sustainable farms and agriculture, self-managed companies, trade of goods and services with equal profit share, production that doesn’t harm the environment nor exploits the laborer, having access to the best quality products, general security, special support for people that require it, cultural and artistic activities – all o this as part of a living right and responsibility for everyone equally.

 

  • These elements will generate the physical and infrastructural support to propitiate our individual psychological needs and satisfaction such as security, self-certainty, confidence, financial stability, conviviality with other members of your society, mutual honor, being able to develop self-expression, natural enjoyment, being able to spend quality and sufficient time with your partner/family, respecting each other as equals and in essence live in a constant physical environment that provides a sense of happiness that is not only a sporadic ‘positive experience,’ or something that must be bought or sold, but a given-fact for everyone as a human right and responsibility.

 

How to implement ‘What’s Best for All’ ?

  • Equal Money Capitalism is the key to adapt and change the current political and economic structures of our corrupted form of capitalism, take its basic principles of serving individual rights to have all of the necessary means to satisfy our physiological and psychological needs, and improve our social relationships. This means that with every individual having their rights guarded and their needs fulfilled, the well being of our society will be generated by default, by virtue of each one’s responsibilities within our personal activities to generate money or educate ourselves to eventually earn money, and as such ensure that each one is well prepared to function as an individual member of society. This ensures that everyone’s best interest is created by the collective participation with equal support.

  • No one will have to be sacrificed to create a general well being, instead each one will be a competitive person in order to excel as a living consideration of ‘what is best’ as an individual effort,  and make of the product of these achievements each one’s contribution to the common good as the sum of self responsible individuals.

    We won’t only have ‘1’ great doctor, but everyone will be able to equalize to the best quality possible if we as a society decide that everyone must have the same tools, education and support to reach our optimum condition of skills and abilities that generate the goods and services for trade.


  • Our self-interest as a common well being interest is to have a fulfilling living condition as in having all our basic and ‘extra’ needs met, therefore in an Equal implementation of these capacities, we require to give access to such benefits in an equitable manner – how to do this? Through distributing profit for every participant in a business/ organization/ institution/ corporation in an equal manner. This is the way in which we can ensure that everyone’s right to be happy, to be healthy and enjoy life is guaranteed by virtue of their own work and effort. These are all physical reality plausible living conditions wherein no other philosophical or ideological terms are required. No one will be allowed to get any less than their best living condition, this means no suffering and no misery, no marginalization, no poverty, no famine, no crime.


  • By covering everyone’s best for all condition, we ensure that no one goes to war to have ‘more than others’ or seek to deliberately abuse them to create a relationship of power and control. This ensures an actual freedom between individuals, which is only able to exist if Everyone is Equally supported to live in a Free condition – not being bound by other’s imposed rules and regulations, but living by a universal principle: Equality as Life, translated as ‘give as you would like to receive,’ ‘love your neighbor as yourself, ‘ ‘investigate all things and keep what’s best,’ ‘do onto others as you would like them to do onto you,’ which are the pillars of our morality and ethics of Life in Equality.


  • No one will be ever again a a slave, meaning, someone that is forced and coerced to perform jobs or activities that he/she does not want to do but has no other option because of needing money in a desperate manner. Within this, we will consider that all those ‘shitty jobs’ that no one wants to do will have to be done by ourselves, taking responsibility for what we used to enslave others to do for us, this is only fair if we want to create true freedom for all. No one will be sacrificed for the greater good, since sacrifices imply abuse and abuse cannot exist if everyone is always living in the best condition possible.


  • Equal Money Capitalism is based on practical physical reality: what you give is what you receive, you get money to live according to the work you do in equal remuneration to everyone else. The motivation is the realization that we require everyone participating to keep living in such a sustainable and comfortable condition that benefits all. And, just as any other organism, if it stops working to obtain the necessary means to live, it dies – so we all have to ensure that we keep the system alive by our individual participation, that’s a physical organic consideration at a social level, being a vital organ of the ecosystem and coexisting in symbiotic relationships within it.

Rewards                                                   

  • Only in Equality will we be able to Live in Freedom understood as the ability and capacity to coexist in peace and harmonious relationships with one another,
  • Pursuing our own Happiness in accordance to Respecting and Honoring each other as Equals.
  • The ability to Choose our profession and vocation in life based in skills and passion instead of the old profit-motive.
  • Developing ourselves to our utmost potential where money is not a limitation to our expression, but a tool to ensure that everyone can have equal support to enhance our living skills and social conviviality.
  • Living in a constant stability and prosperity, in Equality we can keep the system functioning in a perfect condition by all realizing that it is only in Equality that we can all be abuse-free and slave-free – no harm and no abuse.
  • Peace and Joy on Earth, all of it created by our collective yet individual effort and labor, each one contributing to ensure that our rights are guarded by our own mutual support as society – no need to have a Leviathan to ensure we act in the best interest of all.
  • Self determination means: we decide by direct democratic vote what’s best for all, and we make it a living statement by the fruition of our own work.

  • Imperialism means to command, rule, it is the same type of expansion that corporations deploy and coined as Neo-colonialism where it doesn’t only imply an economic expansion on other states, but also include other ‘softer’ means of influence such as culture, language, values, morality, ideology which is precisely what CapitalismUS represents.  Adam Smith defined that the Empire was created to allow merchants and manufacturers to chase higher prices to farmers and laborers, this term has surely evolved over the centuries wherein it is not only trade that matters, but an entire cultural infiltration in which the individual is filled with beliefs of freedom, limitless expansion, the pursue of happiness and an individual ability to seek to be successful regardless of who has to be maimed by one’s desires to have more than others.  It is sugar coated with a positive strong moral sense of having ‘a right’ to pursue personal enterprises without any regard on whether such ‘dream’ is also available for other humans alike.

 

 

  • At a political level, Imperialism in the form of Neo-Colonialism serves Foreign Policy goals wherein the corporate states are concerned with maintaining a certain autarky and secure vital military assets at the same time, without sacrificing international trade with the already ‘allied’ territories through free trade treaties and other forms of coerced cooperation, such as sanctions that ultimately lead o corporate enrichment. There’s also the concept of global integration as in economic independence, expanding the group of trading partners so that they don’t have to trade with opposite regimes, which is why it is easier to ‘go and save the people from supposed ‘tyrant regimes’ to obtain a ‘positive reputation’ for saving foreigners and opening a door for this type of ‘free trade’ by sheer invasion. This is also good for gaining ‘National prestige’ such as appearing as the dominant power,  and living by the ethos of “Grow or Die” / “Eat or be Eaten”

 

  • The Multi-National Corporate Empire serves the never quenching desire for More which implies a cultural, ideological and moral consumerist-evangelization to create more markets, fuel the demand for goods and services and of course get tariff free resources from abroad.  However this is also being used as a way to ‘Save Foreigners’ from apparent abusive regimes, such as the stories  we’ve heard in Egypt, Libya, Iraq and the results are today quite visible to everyone as no more than ‘freedom and democracy’ intrusive techniques turned into spiritual salvations from the pater nostrum of the world, the United States of America.  The goal was not evangelization but the access to necessary resources to keep fueling yet another religion around the world, consumerism and money as an end in itself.

 

  • The consequences of this means acquiring an entire new system of government, the usual ‘Implementation of Democracy’ – which is the banner placed in front of all the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and virtually anywhere else where the U.S. has played the savior at the eyes of the world, as the Paternalistic colonization that it is. That’s why International Organizations like NATO were created, which historically at the end of WW2 it meant keep the Americans in, the Russians out and the Germans down.  Well, now the word order presents Germany as head of the EU state, yet America still dominates beyond the  North American zone of influence as an empire that it’s on it’s last minute of decay.

 

  • Ultimately we have to recognize that this form of Power has existed throughout human civilization and the Holy Roman Empire never ceased to exist, it only morphed into new ways to impose exactly the same forms of extortion while feeding bread and circus to the people, which we will also be looking at as the ‘soft side’ of imperialistic tactics. Power is an accepted and allowed  mind created invigorating experience that we must all take individual responsibility for, since we can only be ‘conquered’ if we accept any form of imposition within and without of ourselves.

Solutions to Neo-Corporate-Colonialism

Corporations will merely be structures of support – here to support Life and the Earth effectively. As such, companies will not be able to own natural resources such as mines, but will only be existent as facilitators – to ensure that all people receive the resources required while at the same time treating the resource with respect within managing it responsibly.

Day 177: Will there still be Retrenchment in Equal Money Capitalism?

In EMC – Politics will be different from what it is today – one will not give up their voice to a representative and then hope that this representative indeed acts in your interest. Instead – each one will be part of the decision making. We go back to the origin of democracy, which was direct democracy. Ones territories started becoming too big for people to gather and do the decision-making, a system of representation was introduced. And for a moment, this was the best option available. But with today’s technology, we are able to implement true democracy once again – because we don’t require to physically come together to discuss and vote on things. We discuss and vote on things with people far away all the time on the internet; on forums, on twitter, on Facebook. So – to organise our political system in a way that everyone has a direct say is today possible and very do-able.

Those in political positions will merely be managers, but they will not be decision-makers

Monopolies

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.

Which Laws Will Regulate Companies?

The EMC will probably develop country by country – so the laws will firstly be national and as more countries join – international agreements will be drafted, which will eventually become law. On a national level – laws will be specifically tailored according to the specific region/environment.

Rewards                                                   

  • How about realizing that we don’t have to live up to be a single way driven individual that only seeks to ‘have more’ and ‘feel good’ about it? How about realizing that we can instead focus on developing living principles that  are non existent in our society due to the corporate values that implements consumerist driven images that we have degraded as ‘the reason to live’ when in fact, life is not an experience, but a physical ability to coexist in Equality.

 

  • Having our corporations ‘at bay’ means that we won’t ever again have our minds being brainwashed by ‘politically correct’ decisions to invade a country, no more wars and means to manipulate other countries in the name of ‘progress,’ since this will be impossible when the profit motive is no longer a benefit for a few.

 

  • No more racial or religious discrimination since the value of life will overrule any other form of belief in separation of the living principle that Life is in all.

 

  • Equality between nations leads to peace, having no means to wage war or culturally conquer others in means of self interest will lead to a new Culture of Life that will never allow a single form of ‘power’ in the form of products and consumerism to be the driving force in our lives, but we will will ourselves to Exist within the determination of our physical ability to enjoy, cooperate and participate in an environment that won’t be threatened to be exterminated and decapitated in the name of profit. That means that our well being will be in our own hands.
