367. Children’s Human Rights | Equal Money

Children are the origin and starting point to create a New World in Equality. Children are mentioned only twice in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which should be a point of concern to not recognize the absolute importance that they represent within the understanding that all children are the adults of tomorrow, and by us not dedicating sufficient attention and support to this considered ‘vulnerable group’ we are undermining the foundation of our future and generations to come if we don’t stop the multiple violations to Children’s rights to be disclosed here. We go the solutions to – for the first time in our history – recognize the vital understanding of a child’s upbringing from the womb and the effect this will bring to create an actual Change in this World through and by the Children of the World.

    Problem                                                  

     

  • The Universal Declaration of Rights – on  Children

    Article 26.
  • (3) Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.

     

    • The first violation of Children’s rights is having to copy and absolutely integrate within themselves the exact ways of the parents as their genetic product as well as the kind of relationship established with the child that is more often than not a relationship of abuse, conflict, abandonment and exploitation. This begins by the parents, extending to their Neighborhood, school, the media, and the rest of a Child’s Education and Adaptation in society that consists of transferring the past intact to them, not only in behavioral patterns, knowledge and information, but in the way that the world-system is and has been, which is something to be concerned about when realizing that we are already seeing the massive rate of abuse inflicted by ourselves as human beings upon each other and every other living being including the planet itself.
    • By continuing a system that runs on profit instead of the consideration of all life in Equality, we are already culprits for having condemned ourselves and generations that are already Here to go throughout their lifetime, trying to ‘find themselves,’ trying to ‘make a living’ and never questioning why we didn’t do better to ensure all enslavement would be long gone by today. This is the world that parents know, this is all that has been ever known – so how could a parent have any decision of what’s best for their children if there are simply no means – read money which translates to education and a good living condition – with which to provide a secure and supportive living environment for the child? There is no decision: we currently are measured by what we are able to pay for.

     

    All children have a right to be protected, not only those who are at risk of trafficking, and reinforcing protection for all children also reduces the vulnerability of sub-groups of children. The concept of building a protective environment for children includes putting in place policies and programmes that ensure children’s rights to survival, development and well-being in general. Child protection systems comprise the set of laws, policies, regulations and services needed across all social sectors – especially social welfare, education, health, security and justice – to support prevention and respond to protection related risks. These systems are part of social protection, and extend beyond it. They include the aim of supporting and strengthening families to reduce social exclusion, and to lower the risk of separation, violence and exploitation

     

    Governments are responsible for allocating sufficient budget to be able both to support programming such as those outlined above to improve the financial status of the family, and for direct financial assistance for the poorest of the poor. This indicates the importance of coordinated action within government to ensure child protection.
    Ministries with responsibilities for children and families, labour, youth, employment, finance, social welfare, education and potentially others all have a role to play in child protection, and consultation and coordination across different ministries is important to maximize the impact of government policies and actions for children.

    • So far our Governments have no interest to genuinely enforce these considerations, because it is all based on the amount of money this would require and not only that, but an entire re-structuring of the system in fact, because all of what is considered in the quotes above can only exist if every individual in charge of not only children but generally as an independent and self willed being is supported with the necessary means to have the best living condition that can create the conditions stated above, which are merely good intentions with no practical application, which makes such manual a great plan to support our societies, but it is like the blueprint for a house that remains only as a project, a dream in someone’s mind without the necessary funds and means to actually live it out in reality.

     

     

    Do children have rights?

    Children, unlike fetuses, do possess individual rights. A new born child, unlike a fetus, is a physically separate entity. A child is an actual human being, with a capability to reason, and thus a child has the same right to life as any adult. However, the application of this right for a young child differs in practice from that of an adult, as a child’s conceptual faculty is not fully developed. This is why a six year old girl does not have the right to choose to enter into a sexual relationship—and an adult does.

    http://capitalism.org/category/children/

     

    • This consideration of children not having certain ’diminished faculties’ is the accepted and allowed excuse used to shape and mold a child according to what the Parents and Schooling system implement as ‘Education,’ because it is believed that they are less capable than an adult to make decisions. But the reality is that they are limited and constricted by the very beginning stages of their development within the family core, by the environment in which they are born into wherein not only money will determine the quality of lives and as such the level of ‘liberties’ they will be granted with, but also the way the child will behave, act, speak and develop certain personalities that will be shaped according to the preponderant social and cultural habits and ways of living.

      We have thus far believed that children are not ready to understand, we have accepted and allowed ourselves to believe that they have some form of ‘slow process of integrating knowledge and information when in fact it is quite the opposite. Fortunately, we are the spearhead in Human Education in this world in relation to the investigations that are currently being conducted to for the first time in human history, assist and support an individual from the womb to develop themselves as a sound living human being. This is outside of the bounds of accepted science, yet an entire process of years of investigation backs up this process which can be read within the Desteni Material (Further references will be given at the end of this article*)

     

     

    Parental and Environmental Influence

    • The child is already born into limitation as young as 13 weeks of gestation in the mother’s womb where the parental patterns are integrated as part of the mind that the new born will develop throughout an entire lifetime. This is how no matter how much we would want to apply basic human rights, the conditions that limit the newborn are already integrated by default as the result of who we have accepted and allowed ourselves to be and become in our  mind that becomes the very genetic information transferred to every newborn.

      Then, Children grow up to integrate the same drive every other human being has within life in a survival system, which is linked to money as a status of success and well being that is fueled by the media that most of the children are educated with due to the parents having little to no time to be with them in every single moment to instead educate the child with actual support based on the development of skills and living examples for the child to eventually become an adult that can reach their utmost potential. This also implies that no matter how great the parents can be, by virtue of existing in one single environment in which we are all existing in, it is virtually impossible to prevent the danger, abuse and insanity of this world to affect your children, because this is the culture that we have created wherein there is little to no support for children to develop the trust and confidence within themselves to walk throughout a lifetime – instead, the schooling process and education at home becomes the survival-training in a world where life is not a given right and where each one is taught to ‘fight for their right to live’ instead of it being given and assured from the cradle to the grave.

    • There is also a Lack of Parental Education to ensure that they will in fact take care of their children. Many abuse their own children either physically, sexually and/or psychologically which defines the life that the child will have from that moment on and for the rest of their lives. These children often run away from home ending up living in the streets other than bearing to live with abusive parents that often are also but not limited to being alcoholics and/or drug abusers, generating conditions for domestic abuse of which children are also gravely affected by. Children can’t ask for support to the authorities because all forms of orphanages or social-worker support ends up being rather abusive at times; some other times children have become so used to the freedom that the streets provide that getting ‘back on track’ as in getting back to school and having a ‘normal life’ is just impossible when some resort to prostitution, drug abuse and even stealing in order to get by. Children grow up to be the same criminals that we then put in prisons without understanding or caring to investigate their background to realize how it is that it all begun from the moment of their inception in a broken home by a dysfunctional couple that did not measure the actual requirements to educate a child with all the best support possible in a financial, affective and environmental way. This is in fact the starting point of our troubled society, these are the relationships and set-up we are born into.

     

    • Children born into families with money are no less abused when being taught to praise the money they have, being defined by their social status and often growing up without direct company of the busy parents that are always traveling or doing business, which ends up creating children that can ‘have it all ‘ financially speaking, but lack the actual formative support that parents are supposed to give. Many more are compromised to either have no option but to marry members in their own family for the purpose of maintaining wealth within it. Many more are forced to follow religious traditions of which they also have no other option for since it is what the parents decide is ‘how things are’ for their children – and this is how even when having sufficient resources, the sheer perpetuation of a linage and tradition that provides success for a family is imposed onto the children with no option to consider there is another way to conduct their lives. Even if this is not considered a form of violation at first sight due to the financial resources available, it does constitute the regular ‘education’ that creates the current elitism in which children are born to without any option to see the world in a different manner, creating dissociation from the rest of the problems that exist in the world, because money creates a veil of comfort that numbs the ability to become an effective and supportive individual – it is all an accepted and allowed social configuration of separation and negligence in which children are born into to further perpetuate the same patterns that have shaped our history generation after generation.

     

     Human CULTure

     

     

    •  Consumerism and the Sexualization of children is being fed by a culture wherein the objective of consumption as the mechanism in which our economy functions, has made of any form of media and social conduct a means and ways to ensure that the profit-making drive is always present from an early age, turning children into early emotionally-driven consumerists following the instructions given on the thousands of ads in our TV and computer screens, where children have little to no awareness of what it is that they’re in fact adopting as a consumption pattern of the words, the behavior, the looks, the aspirations that are simply copied from people on the TV, ‘artists,’  from stories they hear around their parents, teachers, family and friends which is all the result of a social system where entertainment and media have taken the role of ‘educators’ to ensure that children grow up desiring to have a lot of money to buy what they learn is supposed to provide them ‘Happiness.’

      In this there are no values that could ensure that this child will grow up to be an individual that will have the least consideration about the physical reality they live in, caring about each other’s well being or ensuring that the written human rights are in fact implemented. Instead it is all a fantasy-driven story that makes of children young adults with no sense of self responsibility and a strong desire to make money, to be independent and successful in all they do within the definitions of what this system considers ‘successful,’ which is not based on living values but only the amount of money one can get to obtain. Is there in any way a consideration of Equality and developing Self Respect and Integrity within Individuals? No.

      To this, we can add the ubiquitous depictions of sex, violence and any other form of disregard to living values promoted in advertising and pornography, which has become another problem in our society where the internet is filled with that which we have accepted and allowed as an ‘acceptable’ way of entertainment which is by all means Not at all so. On the other side of the coin, this is how this ‘entertainment’ or preference for some becomes a business and a reason for children to be recruited as a sexual slave and in this, no matter how much money you have or don’t have: we’re all responsible for because we’ve become used to driving our lives according to the desire for money, success, sex and the ultimate status that we learn we must get to achieve throughout life, and school, home and our neighborhoods are the growing broth for that; we cultivate it through repetition until eventually our personalities and ‘ways of living’ are absolutely defined by every single thing that we learned from the TV, from the media, from the advertisements on the street and our parental example which also represent the consequential outflow of this same process happening to them from generation to generation.

     

    War

    There are children that could have lived in relatively stable countries, yet the moment a war is waged against their country in the game of “terrorism” – which is in fact supporting the desires of a few individuals in a nation to invade another territory for personal gain -the lives of the country’s people and children are suddenly stripped from that stability and relative peace in which they lived in. Any possibility to go to school and have a normal life is disrupted not only by the need to make money but also due to the death and destruction that any war environment creates, violating the right for children to have a peaceful and healthy living condition, not to mention the lasting effects that have resulted in physical deformities and illnesses that stem from radiation delivered in the form of nuclear bombs and chemical weapons that leave high levels of toxicity undermining any potential ‘healthy living condition’ for generations to come.

     

    War is Children Abuse

    In Afghanistan for example, children are dragged into their parents’ addiction to smoke opium or heroin to mitigate hunger in a family where one single piece of bread must be divided between 5-6 members during a day, living altogether in a shack where children as young as babies already pick up the parents’ drug consumption habit due to the country’s general condition of absolute destruction and social degradation.

    Other no less atrocious outflow is when children become the very military force trained in a religious and fascist manner to fight against whoever is the enemy, leading children to become soldiers and members of gangs as a form of protection; sometimes this is also an outflow of the poverty and lack of familial support that can’t exist in a country where people have less than the necessary means to live. Many more lose their parents as the result of wars in which their living environment can be reduced to rubble.

    War is a crime against humanity that affects people including children along with many more outflows of which this is merely an example of where Children’s Rights are violated.

     

    child soldiers

    Unicef is aware of this, yet the problems are always justified with the whole political situation being ‘too complex’ to solve – it is not, every war can be reduced to be caused by lack of support and or desire for resources that could be distributed in an equal manner in an Equality System in this world.

     

     

     

    Child Labor and Trafficking

     

    The International Labor Organization’s 2002 estimation of 1.2 million children being trafficked each year remains the reference (Every Child Counts, New Global estimate on Child Labour).

     

    “The first is helping the family to understand the risks to the child of trafficking but also the risks to the family and community and the advantages to be gained by protecting the child and her/his future contribution to the family’s well-being.” Training manual to fight trafficking in children for labour, sexual and other forms of exploitation

     

    • Making the families aware of the risks entailed in sending their children away to work to make money stems from the obvious point that is not being directly addressed: the sheer need of parents sending their children away from home or directly selling them already indicates a major problem which is Poverty and how the lack of money as support creates the opening ground for  business such as ‘Child trafficking’ to exist. Increasing the family’s income is a perceived solution, but it is not so at the greater scale where inflation in prices and other external circumstances can undermine the potential of such support through merely ‘giving more money to the family.’ This does not solve the problems that exist at home, as a culture where the traditions, beliefs and customs are based on these moral codes where children have to obey their authority without any regard on whether it is in fact common sense that is taught to them or not. Most of the times, it is a hierarchical form of abuse that is being passed on from generation to generation.

     

    Children Equal Life

     

    “Getting girls and boys into school and keeping them there is a vital step in reducing their vulnerability to trafficking. This is especially true of children who are ‘hard to reach’, such as children living on the streets, who are especially vulnerable to being recruited into child labour or to being trafficked.”

    Training manual to fight trafficking in children for labour, sexual and other forms of exploitation

     

    • Education is seen as a way to prevent abuse – but really, is education currently a guarantee for everyone to have an assured job? No. Not only is education not of the best quality that it could be and be granted for ‘Free’ as intended, but it is part of the same world-system scheme in which not all kids receive the same kind of education. In most cases in places where poverty reigns, it is rather a bad experience for children to go through, which causes further drop-outs and lack of motivation. This causes children to instead immediately incorporate themselves into the survival game of this world system wherein we haven’t yet learned or considered to support all individuals equally to prevent child labor. In the end, if you have access to education, but live in an environment where family members act in abusive ways toward the children and the general living condition is deplorable, how can we expect them to have the necessary motivation to keep going if their future is already determined to be subsumed  and marginalized in absolute lack and deprivation from any form of dignified living condition?

     

    Law enforcement in relation to trafficking applies not only to the implementation of criminal law but also labour law, which is a potent weapon in anti-trafficking efforts. It has to be borne in mind however, that labour law cannot reach into the underground economy or unregulated workplaces. It is important that those working in the legal professions understand trafficking, labour exploitation and the realities of the underground economy. They also, of course, should appreciate issues relating to victim protection and rights.

    Training manual to fight trafficking in children for labour, sexual and other forms of exploitation

     

    • It is mostly disheartening to read that the application of laws cannot in fact ensure that no abuse takes place upon children. This is due to our current Corporate and Unregulated Capitalism wherein all that matters is making profit regardless of whose workforce is implied – this does not only apply to children but adults alike. Hence because the economy is in itself flawed and operating as a profit-based system, the root and cause of the problem that affects children is simply not corrected and aligned. This most certainly leads us to believe that laws can put the criminals that traffic children in prison, but is that the solution to a problem wherein the root and cause of such crime is simply not having sufficient money to live and No Human Rights being in fact guaranteed in this world? No, it is not. Law enforcement is thus futile without the necessary mechanisms to in fact change how the system operates at an economic, politic and social level. Without the support of the government, our judicial systems and most importantly the economic system, any and all considerations to rescue victims of child abuse are only temporary fixes for a situation that will reoccur and prevail when someone can profit out of the labor that a little child can provide.

     

     

    • Capitalism and Child Labor

     

    child_labour12

     

    • The employment of young people is meant to be permitted from age 14-15 while still holding Children’s Rights to supposedly prevent exploitation and other forms of abuse. However what happens in fact is that children as young as 5 and 6 years old are already used as workforce in countries where poverty is the general ‘living condition’ due to the world-system politics and economic affairs that we have all also accepted and allowed as ‘how things are’ where the need for money makes children become workers rather than attending any school to eventually get out of the poverty loop – something as ‘simple’ as in having the ability to go to school, in places where survival is extensive, such luxury is simply not existent, even if it’s not the actual way to stop the cycle of abuse.

     

    What you’re about to read stems from the Ayn Rand philosophy on Capitalism that is presented in the website Capitalism.org – We’ll give perspective on some of the answers available in their concept section dedicated to Children.

     

    Isn’t Capitalism responsible for children working in factories?

    Children working in factories was only a transitory stage between early feudalism and capitalism. Prior to working in factories, before capitalism, many of children (and their parents) used to die and starve, as evidenced by the high infant mortality statistics before capitalism. Observe that is was not until families left the “country” and went into the “cities” that they were able to produce enough food to eat. The clearest evidence of this is population and infant mortality statistics: population did not go up, and infant mortality did not go down, until the Industrial Revolution. If life was so great before capitalism in the “country”, why was infant mortality so high and population numbers considerably lower before capitalism? Answer: because life was not so great until Capitalism.

    Throughout history the parents of most families could not produce enough to support their families without having their children work also (such was the case of my father in India). It was the accumulation capital by the industrialists that made the labor of parents more productive, that children had to stop working in fields or factories. In poor non-capitalist countries they are still working in fields and factories.

    http://capitalism.org/category/children/

     

    • There are many ways to justify the abuse that we are currently living in as our economic system, and this quote is proof of that. The problem that is not addressed is how in rich-capitalist countries all the goods sold to the rich are the product of hideous labor conditions, also involving child labor which means that those ‘poor-countries’ become the work-force for the rich countries wherein children are granted all these goods as part of their well being, along with the best education and living conditions each one can afford; but, if they had to produce what they consume, they would probably equally have to make their children work to maintain such high rates of living standards due to not having anyone to ‘outsource’ the production to. Sure, capitalism can elevate a few sectors’ living conditions, but it is not explained at the expense of who is such well being created, and as we know the poor ones, the vulnerable ones are the preferred work force due to the profit that it represents to have cheap labor.

     

    “At any stage of the supply chain, children(and indeed adults) may have been exploited, and may have been trafficked into that exploitation. As sub-contracting arrangements become more complex and increasingly global, it is an enormous challenge to check every link in the chain and be able to guarantee that end products are, indeed ‘child trafficking-free’. This is increasingly, however, what consumers desire and require. A number of high profile campaigns in some sectors against reputable manufacturers whose supply chains were shown to include exploitative sub-contractors, have illustrated in recent years how vulnerable reputable employers can be if they are not fully aware of all the elements of their supply chain, all the sub-contractors used (and the sub-contractors of their sub-contractors) and cannot guarantee 100 per cent that their output is child trafficking/labour-free.”

    Child labor in China

     

    How could we in any way justify the pain and suffering that children that should be enjoying themselves discovering reality with proper assistance by parents and teachers are instead becoming the workforce within a system wherein Only those with money can make an actual ‘living’? There are no justifications, there are no excuses other than our general disregard and self interest to not ensure every single child’s well being. If this same kind of no-choice for the future of our children was experienced by every single family that is currently secured with money, we would have surely already – most likely – done something about it, but because we don’t see the reality we are all inflicting by default to every child born without proper support, we believe that it is ‘none of our business’ and that is what generates the illusion that the children of the world is not of our responsibility when in reality they are all in fact our children as well.

     

     

     

    Will labor laws banning child labor in non-capitalist countries put an end to child poverty?

    Contrary to leftist rhetoric passing child labor laws in these countries will not solve the problem, but will only lead to mass starvation — which is why the “poor” themselves resist such laws. It is primarily for the benefit of the rich, leftist “humanitarians” — that live in capitalist countries — who cry out for these laws, that these laws are implemented. – http://capitalism.org/category/children/

     

    • The nature of this quote represents the accepted and allowed crime against ourselves as humanity where we have come to accept poverty as an inherited state of being where even denying labor to children can lead to their inability to fend for themselves. This is the catch 22 conditions we continue to exist in because of profit. One can notice the tonality wherein there is no consideration on what the actual suffering of these children represents in fact.

     

    cotton_children

     

    Doesn’t capitalism lead to child labor in factories?

    No. Capitalism did not create child labor working in fields or factories. It inherited it from the previous political systems. Observe that in communist Cuba of today 11 year old children are forcibly sent off to “summer camps” where they spend time working in fields cutting sugar cane and tobacco — this is called by leftists as “volunteerism” and “education”. Yet little mention is made of this.

    http://capitalism.org/category/children/

     

    • Whether it is inherited or not, the fact is that child labor constitutes a great part of the work force in places like China where children as young as 10 – or less – have been found laboring in factories. Any form of forced labor no matter what the type of economic system is a violation of human rights.

     

      • “12 million children laboring in India working in coal mines, textiles and hideous labor conditions
      • 60% of the 350 million child laborers are in Asia

      • 1998 – The National Labor committee found 300 young women making garments for Ann Taylor in a Factory in Southeastern China
      • 50,000 in Bangladesh children working are ‘essential’ for families”

     

    • This is the condition that most people that are abused and exploited in this world are existing in: there is no organism that in fact protects children and young people from the hands of a lucrative business that is a consequential outflow of our own need to keep running a system based on profit while satisfying our accepted and allowed ‘wants and needs.’ Marginalization, discrimination, lack of healthcare, lack of education and basic means to live makes of these individuals the ideal target for those that even promise better living conditions to the parents of the children. Sometimes girls are sold for marriage purposes and in this, a child’s will is absolutely overlooked when it comes to the adults that supposedly know what would be better for another individual. We realize this is just a lie since all current ‘living decisions’ are based on Profit and Survival accordingly.

    What is a proper solution to solving child-poverty in third-world countries?

    The real solution is to make the parents productive enough so that they can produce enough for themselves — and for their children. What these poor people in India and the like need, are not more humanitarians like Mother Theresa, but more businessman like Bill Gates. What these countries need is not more government controls, but more freedom.http://capitalism.org/category/children/

     

    • The Production solution is also the same one promoted by organisms like the UNICEF which is of no surprise at all, since all organizations stemming from the UN are still guarding the world-system’s best interests – profit, capitalist gain for a few – above any real Human Rights defense. These organisms are shaped to comply to the dominant economic system and formulate solutions according to the laws of profit and benefit for those that actually create their wealth based on the majority’s suffering.  Making Parents ‘productive enough’ is not a solution since that leads to our current ‘progress and economic growth’ measures that have turned Life into a profit making scheme of unstoppable consuming and producing, turning our world into a factory and a trash can at the same time. Freedom is money in this world, and by not giving money to everyone within a system where giving and receiving is done in equality, we cannot conceive just ‘working harder’ to be a genuine solution but instead it is another way to present a ‘no other way out’ from the capitalist-terms in which we have all believed it is impossible to get out of.

      We’re about to discover that this is not at all so.

    Solutions                                                               

    • The transformation and solution process is through an with the implementation of the Equal Money System beginning with Equal money Capitalism is the stepping stone to move from our current living condition of survival, control and fear  to an assured and guaranteed well being by virtue of being able to protect our human rights. This is possible when money stops being an end in itself that is to be strived and fought for, and instead becomes a tool of unconditional support for all individuals of which children are the ones that will have equal benefit by being able to be born into a Living environment where all the necessary means to live in dignity are granted as a Living Right. 

     

    • Children will be supported from the moment of birth with Equal Money managed by their parents who will also individually have all the money required to grant each child the quality living needs, support, assistance and environmental responsibility that ensures and guarantees a general well being for every child equally. Education in the Equal Money System will be available for all and it is extended to a special training and support for Parents, because we Do understand how vital it is to have all information, all relevant educational support to understand how to best support the child even from the stages of gestation in the mother’s womb. This is part of the Self-Responsibility Principle in which Equal Money and the Living Rights established through the Equal Life Foundation are based upon.

     

     

    Everyone will receive free and effective training in language, reading, and mathematics – the basic foundational skills that make it possible to effectively interact with one’s world. Prospective parents will receive training to ensure that they are fully capable of supporting their child’s development into a functionally effective Human.

    Equal Life Foundation

     

     

     

    • The process of rehabilitation for children and parents alike along with the necessary living conditions and support granted as a Fundamental Human Right will be part of our social responsibility within the understanding that the life of each child that has been affected by our world-system of profit over life is our direct cause and effect that we must take Self Responsibility for. There are already plans for that according to Unicef and other International Organizations, however none of them have been effective due to the economic constrain they are founded upon. By removing money as an obstacle in that equation, everyone genuinely interested in educating oneself to later on educate parents and children alike will be able to do so, as this is a fundamental aspect to integrate the living principles and values to generate the best living condition that we all want for ourselves and the future generations to come.
       

    • Any violation to Children’s Human Right to Live in Dignity and be Supported in equal Honor, Integrity and Respect by their Parents will be dealt with according to the solutions that can be implemented to either replace the parents, support the parents to become effective in their parenting skills or face the consequence that we will all collectively decide by democratic means is what is best for all. These measures are contemplated to ensure that the patterns of parental abuse are gradually diminished up to the point of absolute eradication. This is within the understanding that the patterns of abuse have been integrated as part of who we are, our history, our culture and environment. All of this will entail an arduous yet absolutely gratifying process of supporting each aspect of our reality to be aligned to Equality as Life, to turn it into the Ideal Living Environment to Raise our Children in the best ways that we can all contribute to guard and create.

     

     

     

     

    Rewards                                                              

    • Children that become the living expression of life will be our greatest reward, to see them enjoying themselves without any fear, without limitation, without having a mind creating inner conflict and insecurity. Instead, each child will be endowed with all necessary living skills through education and parental support to become the individual that they will understand is what is best for all, because Freedom can only exist within the understanding that we are a collective on this Earth and we have to consider each part of it if we genuinely want to live in peace and harmony – that’s the fundamental aspect that will enable children to become effective decision makers and self-willed individuals that support themselves to work together in a system where Life will be honored from birth till the inevitable death.

     

    • The time available for parents to take care of their children will also be a possibility in a world system where working is no longer your ticket to live, but instead a contribution that one gives in a certain phase of our lives – and with considerable less amount of working time – in order to dedicate ourselves as adults to educate and raise children to become the genuine future of the world that we would want ourselves to live in as well.

     

     

    • Educated Parents that genuinely know how to care for their children, having all the necessary means to give them the best living condition is a guarantee that will ensure children are actually cared for with the intent of supporting them as equals to become self-realized individuals that equally generate the best living conditions in which they will also, as a result, will want their own children to be born into.

     

    • No more child trafficking, child abuse, children sold as sexual slaves for child pornography. No more children having to prostitute themselves on the streets, no more children running away from their abusive parents at home, no more children resorting to drugs to mitigate the physical psychological abuse, physical pain and/or hunger – Every single child will have access to the best living condition that we all would want for ourselves. This is the reward that we will collectively ensure through the general organisms that we will all collectively regulate, as it is in our best interest to ensure that our children grow up to be the most effective living individuals that can exist in our world, as that is how we realize that the future of our human race depends on how well we support and assist our children to create the future not only for fellow human beings, but to equally ensure all animals, plants and the entire ecosystem is equally supported to finally live as Equals on this Earth.

      To never see a single child being abused and suffering again – this is our collective responsibility.

    365. Labor is a Human Right |Equal Money

    Human development has been based upon upgrading our skills and abilities to become a ‘Functional Unit’ in a survival of the fittest system, where our lives are imbued with sufficient fear to ensure one remains complacent to everything that must be learned and done in order to subsist, and at the same time power this system of inequality, lack and self abuse. Is this what ‘Life’ is supposed to be about? Is this the future we want for our children to come into? No, therefore let’s walk through the solution here.

     

    Continuing with:

     

    Problem                                                  

    • Our Access to Life,  worth and place in society is measured according to the amount of money you make and type of job you have instead of guiding our lives and consequentially our world-system by Principles such as learning how to live, act and do that which is Best for All and enhancing our living expression in Equality. We haven’t lived as equals in terms of supporting each other to live in the most efficient ways and give to ourselves by default the necessary means to live; instead we accepted the fact that we have to ‘make a living’ and ensure we have sufficient money to live, and that can only be obtained through getting a job: this is our ticket to survive. We haven’t realized to what extent our Basic ‘Human Rights’ have never in fact been lived, at all. The problem is not how these Rights are written but how the system functions which tampers any possibility of them being applied and granted as intended within the considerations that we will read according to the Article related to Work in the UN’s Declaration of Human Rights.

    • Work is an inherent aspect of our lives by virtue of understanding that everything that we consume, our housing, what we use to live requires to be sustained/ maintained in a functional manner – this means that we are the ones that have to use our physical work force and intellect to use the Earth’s resources effectively to make our lives work. This basic activity became part of the economic system wherein we made our lives subject to money, which means we followed the belief that ‘In order to make a living we require a job to make money to live.’ What does this mean? That all of the previous ‘Human Rights’ about Housing, education, food and basic services had to be made also subject to money  in order for us to have a reason to work and earn it, which means we have enslaved ourselves to Money which then became the actual decision-maker that defines what we have access to live and what we don’t.

      This implies that our ‘Right to Work’ is not a Self-Honest decision in terms of what must be done in common sense to contribute to our common well being, instead it is a process of coercion wherein work is the key to survive, a key to get money to live – our lives are thus not ‘guaranteed’ as our basic Human Rights would claim. Work became the synonym to life and the conditions within it are nothing but Equal as presented in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    • It is important to first of all understand and consider that all violations that are going to be mentioned here are not only a result of corporate policies that have no regard to human life and are solely driven by greed, it is our collective responsibility that must be looked at because we are the ones that consume all the products, all the services that imply one or many of the following forms of Human Rights Violations –

     

    Further explanation: Who Violates Our Rights?

     

     

    • In the Universal Declaration of Rights – on Labour -Article 23
      • (1) Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.
        Declaration of Human Rights

     

    • There’s No Free Choice when it comes to seeing which work is best for us, because it’s all defined according to the availability of our ‘desired’ job, the wage or lack of vacancy at all which has become a massive problem that leads to subemployment/underemployment meaning over qualified people that have to earn a lot less than they should according to the studies they have, which in turn creates dissatisfaction and a general sense of disempowerment that permeates all aspects of our relationships with which we form and create the system as is. If Free Choice and favorable conditions existed, we would not be witnessing doctors selling drugs in a pharmacy, or people with PHD becoming part of the entrepreneurial realm just to compensate the lack of funds destined to support researching programs in their field or area of investigation.

     

    • There is also no option in terms of the type of jobs that ‘uneducated people’ can have  when the urge to have money to feed themselves and their families without having to resort to crime implies underpaid jobs in hideous conditions that are currently being labeled as ‘Slave Labor.’ We have to face the fact that Slavery never ceased to exist and we are all part of it the moment we made our lives subject to money to exist; though those without the ‘worth label’ of ‘Education’ in the system are treated and forced to occupy ‘lesser job positions’ without never questioning if such person had Any opportunity and access to proper education – most of the times, they don’t and this is how we perpetuate poverty and lower class stagnation.

     

    • There is no security against unemployment – Data speaks more than a thousand words on this. There’s many reasons to this which are all in conjunction to the current downward spiral experienced in our economy worldwide – as long as money is scarce, job creation is halted and this is simply because the power of acquisition is diminished – in this we can understand how there is no isolated aspect or phenomena in our world system as all acceptances and allowances affects the whole mechanism in which the world-system functions.

     

    • Having a quarter of your population (25%) without employment sky rockets criminality and further stagnation in the economy –it is common sense that people living in austerity will not become part of the reactivation of an economy where scarcity through unemployment, high interest rates and debt is escalating without a solution. South Africa is one of the countries with highest rate of Unemployment which makes sense how it is labeled the most unequal country in the world.

     

    • The ‘Right to Work’ currently extends to children that are forced to work even from the age of 3, ‘helping’ their parents to make a living – sometimes these children have no parents and no support from any governmental institution either. This means that the future of our world is compromised to ‘make a living’ without going to school that, even if it’s not the best education available, it does mean an opportunity to make a better living in our current world system. This opportunity is not available when children are working par en par with their parents or sometimes working For the parents as slaves. Or even worse, they are sold to the sex trafficking market which also implies our social responsibility in terms of realizing what we have made a ‘business’ and what is available for humans to pay for: our children.

    Watch:

     

     

    • (2) Everyone, without any discrimination, has the right to equal pay for equal work.
    • (3) Everyone who works has the right to just and favorable remuneration ensuring for himself and his family an existence worthy of human dignity, and supplemented, if necessary, by other means of social protection.

      Declaration of Human Rights

     

    Read the following article for further information on facts that may or may not be accurate in terms of there being any real improvements – however the basic layout of working conditions is there and it is up to your discretion and cross reference in your reality whether these numbers and data correlate to what we are experiencing in our world today.

     

    We are looking at:

    • Excessive overtime in terms of factually labor hours paid. This is commonly known as ‘Slave Labor’ which reflects the extent we have imposed exploitation to fellow human beings that are forced to work the ‘8 hour standard’ almost in a double manner, which means working up to 16 hours a day with no rest, no proper living conditions but instead, living in prison-factories that make our gadgets and latest technologies a reality: it is all done because we demand it, because we consume it and because it is the perfect profitable cyclic system for the corporations that create these products that we all buy, including the device in which I am writing this today and you are reading it as well.

     

    • Underage workers: children being a labor force that is commonly known to be an abuse yet there is little to No Social responsibility in corporations to Ban all child labor, because under the premise of economic efficiency: cheap labor leads to high profits and this is what drives the ‘effectiveness’ and application of laws in this world – it is thus Not a Principle that is respected.  Some shameful facts here:

     

      • 1998 – The National Labor committee found 300 young women making garments for Ann Taylor in a Factory in Southeastern China
      • 12 million children laboring in India working in coal mines, textiles and hideous labor conditions
      • 50,000 in Bangladesh children working are ‘essential’ for families
      • 60% of the 350 million child laborers around the globe are in Asia
      • Ivory coast – cocoa plantation workers: half a million trafficked children work there

     

    child-labor-in-america-by-www.whatisusa.info_

     

    • Hazardous waste/unhealthy working conditions: an example is how people working with crops and fertilizers, mostly immigrants being paid less than the constitutional standard for ‘minimum wage’ are often victims of health problems after having little to No protection at all when spraying chemicals onto the foods that we also eat. The same with all workers in nuclear plants and industrial processes that no only harm the worker’s health, but also the animals and environment involved in it.

     

    • Injuries and deaths: Wal-Mart for example would make money out of their employees due to insurances that would not be paid toward the family of the deceased, but to the company itself – in a system where death is profitable we cannot expect any form of ‘right’ to be existent or any dignity toward one another. In the Chinese Factory Foxconn, workers began committing suicide which resulted in nets being placed surrounding the building  in order to prevent more from doing this as a result of the hideous slave-labor conditions they are bound to, without any solution to have a better future.

      • Agriculture has one of the highest injury rates of any industry; the frequent cuts and bruises can become infected by the bacteria in barnyards and on animals. Moreover, work animals and machinery frequently injure farm workers.

    Migrant-Farm-Workers-Are-the-Backbone-of-the-Agricultural-Industry

     

    • No social security/ health insurance: when having a health problem becomes a matter of life or death, people have to resort to seek medical assistance and bypass their need to eat in order to be ‘healthy’ again and continue working to make money – it is a vicious cycle as a result of health care also not being a Human Right. People are forced to continue working without any proper rest which leads to people losing their physical and mental health at a faster rate, resulting in many workers nowadays developing Mental Illnesses at a faster rate. 

     

    • Internships gone unpaid: in the ‘developed world’ all people that aspire to get a good reputation by saying they worked for this or that company, are ‘invited’ to work without any pay just to see if they ‘fit’ the profile to then become part of a corporation’s working force – most of the times, they are only used for short periods of time without wage and only to be replaced by new ‘interns’ that will undergo the same process – since there is no regulation to this practice, there is no corporate responsibility involved in this and instead justify handing out the ‘opportunity’ to those that are more willing to endure the labor-trial to get such desired job.

     

    One-Foxconn-Worker-Cleans-3-000-iPhone-5-Back-Panels-Every-Night-Source-2

     

    •  Income gap/ Inequality: a worker makes 7.25 dollars an hour while a CEO makes over 5,000 in the same timeframe. The level of acquisition determines the living standard of a nation. This is unfortunately not realized which is why we have absolute stagnation in our economies worldwide, because Austerity measures only limit the capacity to get out of the crisis – this is common sense yet when such profit could be equally distributed among all workers, it is hoarded by a minority that continues to control all possible work sources. This monopoly of the profit system is the best example of how working conditions are Not favorable for all.

     

    • Falsified records: we have no clear data that exposes all the levels of injustice that happen in fact in the work place all around the world, there’s a lot of clandestine workforce that is used taking advantage of people’s immigration state or lack of personal records that are used in order to ‘hire’ the person with the consent of them not being ‘legal,’ therefore implying that they do not count as a sound worker in corporate records of employment. We all consume and buy the products and services that these labor conditions create.

     

     

     

    • All working unions were systematically attacked due to the obvious power  of Union that would be sufficient to reclaim their basic working rights to be respected by a corporation – the following video will explain in a very simple manner how this works and this is the reason why all forms of unions have been systematically attacked since the 1980’s beginning with the Thatcher era and consequentially being made obsolete so that people remain divided in interests to the benefit of the employers/ corporate interests.

     

    • Is the solution supporting Labor Unions? Is it Demanding Change? or is it Creating an entire New World System where No workers’ rights are overlooked to make more profit for a few? The problem does not only exist in uniting workers but the entire structure and functioning of the system wherein Corporations/ businesses seek to get the most profit by having the least labor and manufacturing processes expense.

     

     

     

    Article 24.
    • Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay.
      Declaration of Human Rights

     

    • The right to work comes along with Self Responsibility, and we have divided our lives to such an extent that we have made of a job a torturing ground, a daily punishment and hideous time that one goes through almost on a daily basis in order to barely have enough to pay the bills, buy food and entertain oneself to keep going year by year without any ability to escalate one’s living position, because of the amount of debts that come with education, housing, credit cards and all of what exists in a world-system where money exists as debt and interest creation for banking systems that do not have our best interests as their primary purpose of existence.  This is the reason why the time for rest is virtually non existent when people are forced to work double jobs to have sufficient money to feed their family, ‘volunteering’ for extra hours and even working on holiday days with more pay than usual – this means that all ways to get more money are being used and in the meantime, children are being brought up by teachers at school and TV’s/ Internet at home without any supervision. It is an overall social problem with no resolution unless we change the way that we grant access to living necessities to all individuals equally.

     

     

    International System Problem

    The bottom line is Human Working Rights are not respected because Money decides Labor/working conditions, and at this stage granting all individuals with the best working terms implies less profit for the few that dictate the rules in which our economy is meant to work to protect their interests. Political powers are subsumed to Economic power, and this is how we go back to the old saying ‘Might makes Right’ or Money sets the rules of the game.

     

    UN Finds “Little Appreciation” for Human Rights Among US Businesses

    “With a few exceptions, most companies still struggle to understand the implications of the corporate responsibility to respect human rights,” Puvan Selvanathan, the current head of the Working Group and one of the two members on the U.S. trip, said at the end of the mission “Those that do have policies in place, in turn, face the challenge of turning such policies into effective practices.”

    Again, the reason Why this is so is because of money.

    Is this a human rights violation or is it that Rights have never in fact been even applied?

    Solutions                                                               

    • Work is equated to getting the means to live and this implies that we are able to give and receive in equality the fruit of our labor within an Equality System where money becomes a rights document to all the other Human Rights by virtue of every single individual having an assured job/ means of income to live. This is the foundation of the platform of Stable Financial Support within the framework of the Equal Money Capitalism proposal, where our Human Rights will be guaranteed by virtue of making Money a means to ensure that all our basic necessities to live are covered in a sufficient and dignified manner.

     

     

    • Labor within an Equal Money system will not carry in itself a dimension of ‘earning’. The goods and services one requires to live a fulfilling life and one’s contribution to society will simply be two different things. In an Equal Money system, the right to live is a given and not something that requires to be earned. You are already here, you already live – why then is there a need to ‘earn one’s living’? Each individual will, thus, unconditionally be provided with the goods and services he/she requires. More information on the allocation and distribution of goods and services is present on the Goods page.

     

    • Since labor is no longer a means to determine the distribution of goods and services, what role will it play within an Equal Money System? Let us look back for a moment at the roles labor plays within our current Economic System:
      1. Labor plays a necessary part within the process of manufacturing goods and providing services to the population.
      2. Through labor one gains access to money with which individuals are able to acquire the goods and services produced and provided within the economy.
    • Having removed the necessity to work in order to gain access to goods and services – we are left with the role of labor in terms of the human capital required to manufacture goods and providing services to the population. This is the primary role Labor will fulfill within an Equal Money System.

     

     

    Here is part of the  Equal Life Foundation’s Bill of Rights  dedicated to Monetary Integrity

    13. An Equal Right to Monetary Integrity with a parity system that starts with the building blocks that one unit of value is equal to one unity of measure, thereby insuring that no man, organization or institution can manipulate the monetary and financial systems to their own self-aggrandizement to the detriment of what is best for all, so that such an integrated, balanced and equal system supports and enhances trade, enterprise, circulation and value retention as fundamental in a global economic system that serves Life.

    7. An Equal Right of Free Association that provides a social and economic milieu that is dynamic, interactive and free of constraints, out of which new ideas, concepts, technologies and productivity that enhance and advance what is best for all can emerge with the understanding that such association does not limit the first Fundamental Human Right – namely an Equal Life Right for all or any of the Rights flowing from this Right.

    Equal Life Foundation

     

     

     

     

       
      The Seventh Fundamental Human Right is: the Right to Have a job, the Right to Labour, the Right to Have Access to the Means through which the Ecosystem, the Economy is Managed, which is the System of Distribution of Resources on Earth. Without such means, one Creates a Master-Slave Relationship and there are No Human Rights within that Relationship. Therefore, a Basic Human Right is a Job, Employment, being part of the Ecosystem so that one can Receive from it as you are giving to it. An Ecosystem is a Give and Receive, each one Participates by Giving Their Labour so that they can get/receive from it the Result of the Labour. Within that, there are Different Skills and Skill Levels that are Relevant to the Current Genetic Dispensation that has been Accepted – so, Some will be More Intellectual and some Less Intellectual. The More Intellectual will find More Interesting or Effective ways to take Substances from the Earth and Create New Products that can Benefit Everyone. Others will be Less Effective with that, but More Effective with Physical Labour and therefore: their Genetics will Support Physical Labour.
      Identifying the particular Skill one has to Contribute to the System, the Ecosystem, the Economy obviously is Relevant, but At the End of the Day – The Right to Receive from the Ecosystem an Equal Measure Is a Basic Human Right as Part of the Basic Human Nature of a Physical Being that finds Themselves on Earth. Thus, Violating it as it is being done at the moment through the Current Systems that is being Utilized, Controlling it through Controlling the Education Systems so that nobody can Realize what they are Really Actually Allowing and Accepting on Earth – is Criminal at the very least.

      DAY 362: Human Rights and the Equal Life Foundation

       

       

                     

                    • Child labor will be forever banned from this world and instead Children will be where they are meant to be: enjoying educating themselves, learning how the world works, how to become self responsible individuals in physical terms where skills are developed and conducted from a young age to particular areas that they can further develop themselves in when getting to the ‘Work phase’ of their lives – again, this will be entirely consensual since a job won’t be compulsory to live, but instead it will be a process of self-willed and self-directed expression to support and maintain our lives in the best possible ways since we are the ones that will determine How we live in Equality, not money any more.

                     

                    Creating the Future of the World is Supporting All with Equal Education

                     

                    • All related problems of immigration/ migration will cease to exist since there will be no need for people to leave their families in an attempt to make more money than in their ‘poor countries’ of origin. This will result in an obvious escalation in Human Rights protection since many violations are currently existing due to this social phenomena where families are divided and uprooted sometimes due to not having a legal status in a certain country, some other times for any other alleged criminal involvement. People do not in fact wish to leave their families in pursuit of a better living condition – this happens all over the world and this will all change with Equal Money where no matter where in the world we live in, we will be equally supported to have the best living standard that we are all able to co-create and cooperate to sustain as equals.

                    Rewards                                                              

                    • We will all be able to dedicate our lives to do that which we genuinely enjoy doing and have natural skills for – or create them, since Time or money won’t be a restrain to develop new skills and explore new areas of human development –  we won’t be bound to one single 9-5 job for 40 years just to have sufficient retirement funds. Instead we will be able to have a variety of professions, expand our skills and challenge each other to reach new grounds in all fields of investigation and human development since money won’t dictate what we can or can’t do during our lifetimes that we will instead realize must be devoted to supporting All Life in Equality – this means the End of all ‘Modern Day Slavery’ forevermore.

                     

                    • New jobs will be created, the type of jobs that will support the restoration and regeneration of the Earth’s natural resources and living species, since it will be a time to commit ourselves to work with that which matters which is supporting all living beings in Equality, something that till this day has not been lived or remunerated as a dignified job because it is not profitable at the moment – but once profit is removed as a motivation to live, we will instead learn to value the actual life that is here and has always been here as ourselves.

                     

                    • Children will be able to be educated to learn how to become a principled living being, which means we won’t train them in order to become the most successful person based on monetary values, instead it will be a process of self-perfection wherein our ‘work’ will consist of making our lives as effective as possible within the consideration of what is Best for All. Parents will also have sufficient time to be with them at home since there will be no need to work extra hours or double shifts to have enough means to live.

                     

                    • All inequality problems stemming from gender, race, religion, financial status will cease to exist since all human beings are equal based on the premise of the physical aspect of being human beings with the right to work in the best living conditions in order to create within that, the best living products, give the best services and general care for our common well being. Giving as we would like to receive holds no limitation to what is physically required to dignify each other’s lives.

                     

                    • All our basic requirements will be granted as a Human Right which means we won’t ever have to witness or be a part of a protest to acquire that which will be given by default in an Equality system – From here on, we will stand equal and one to honor ourselves, to realize that our world is here to be Lived, not attained or ‘worked for,’ but instead work becomes a living expression that supports Life in Equality.

                    362. Water is a Human Right | Equal Money

                     

                    How did we go from establishing our civilizations around rivers, deifying water and understanding it as the sacred element of life that it is to the current  condition that we exist as when it comes to knowing yet neglecting all the various ways in which we are depleting, polluting, privatizing and squandering our fresh water resources without considering the definitive actions that we must implement to stop this crime against life if we want to ensure Life continues in this world.  Water is  Human Right, why is it not yet determined as such in the Declaration of Human Rights ?

                     

                    Continuing with:

                     

                    Problem                                              

                    • We have made of water an asset, a product that has become a discord and point of further control to limit the lives of the majority while enhancing the lives of a few – this is permitted because of the current economic and political system where the following problems are causing more deaths and degradation than wars worldwide:

                    1.1 Billion without water - EMC - Equality Money

                        Demographics:

                        • Since 1950 the world population has doubled and water use has tripled
                        • Only 20% of the world population enjoys access to running water; over one billion people in developing countries have inadequate access to water
                        • The average American individual uses 100 to 176 gallons of water per day; in contrast, the average African family uses 5 gallons of water per day
                        • At least 1 billion people must walk 3 hours or more to obtain drinking water; individuals spend more than 200 million hours per day walking to collect water from distant, often polluted sources

                     

                    Pollution:
                    • Human beings cannot survive without water – yet over 1 Billion people lack access to potable drinking water which is the first cause of death due to people having to drink from polluted rivers and lakes where all forms of waste and bacteria exist.

                    • Not only human beings lack water, all forms of life are currently also not having access to clean waters in rivers and lakes which have become the sewage for industries, entire cities as well as all the chemicals used for agricultural purposes. All of these contaminated waters are used, at the same time,  to water crops which means we are essentially eating our toxic waste in our food. This vital liquid is now permeated with all these relationships of abuse – profiteering, control, subjugation, power – that we have formed toward the substance that conforms most of our physical body; our water is contaminated now in the deep ocean where fish are found with bits of plastic and dying from all the bits consumed – the same way that children and people are forced to drink from polluted rivers because water is so expensive or simply non existent in their locality.

                     

                    • In the world, we pump 30 billion gallons of ground water every single day.

                    • Metrics:

                    • 1 ton of grain requires 1,000 tons of water, 1 slice of cantaloupe requires 40 gallons of water, an 8 ounce serving of steak requires 1,232 gallons; 1 pound of pork requires 1,630 gallons
                    • Agriculture can consume 75 to 90% of a region’s available water
                    • One inch of rain falling on one acre of land is equal to roughly 27,154 gallons of water
                    • 1 Microchip takes 32 liters

                     

                    • The world’s water consumption rate is doubling every 20 years, outpacing by two times the rate of population growth. With persistent regional droughts, shifts of the growing population to urban coastal cities, and the water needed for industrial growth, it is projected that by the year 2025 water demand will exceed supply by 56%
                    • Despite being the most common substance on earth, 97% is seawater and unfit for human use. Two thirds of the fresh water is locked up in glaciers leaving only 1% of the earth’s water for human consumption; this 1% is increasingly threatened by pollution

                     

                    • We are pumping 50 times more water in the world, which means we are breaking the cycle of percolation in which the water is filtered through all the ground to restore the aquifers in a certain period of time. This isn’t being respected and just as any other energetic resource or animal that we kill to consume before it replenishes its reproductive cycle, we are over consuming water faster than it is extracted and replenished, which shows how we have caved our own pit of drought and scarcity: we haven’t yet learned how to respect the natural cycles of this physical world.

                     

                    •   The pollution has created the loss of water quality, which means that there are no more minerals and nutrients that would come from the soil that would benefit our physical body– we are tampering our own quality living by denying water to those that need it, by using it indiscriminately and pollute it without any responsibility.

                     

                      Health:

                    • Of the 37 major diseases in developing countries, 21 are water and sanitation related; no single type of intervention has greater overall impact upon the national development and public health than does the provision of safe drinking water and the proper disposal of human excreta
                    • The United Nations estimates that by 2025 30% of the world population in 50 countries will face water shortages
                    • The World Health Organization estimates that water related diseases account for 80% of all sicknesses in the developing world and claim approximately 5 million lives each year
                    • If no action is taken to meet basic water needs, as many as 135 million people may die from water-related diseases by 2020
                    • At any given time, half the people in developing countries are suffering from water-related diseases

                    • This is all the result of the absolute separation we have created in our reality and world-system “development,” where we have imposed our exigencies to the environment and wanting it to adapt to our lifestyles instead of Ourselves being the ones that adapt to what we have available in this world at a local level.

                     

                     

                    Politics and Corporate Power:

                    • Privatization is the worst crime against humanity that has been going on since the 1990’s when the ability for corporations to own this vital resource comes along with all the ‘free market’ endeavors in our capitalistic system, wherein the right to property is secured for those that have the capital to buy territory, regardless of any law or regulation that implies certain areas are meant to be part of the local patrimony and reserves. The process of claiming the right to the land that is being exploited to obtain water  is conducted in violent ways  including coup d’états and armed conflicts in order to subjugate people and accept the privatization of water . This was adopted during the Thatcher administration in the UK and from there, it was accepted worldwide as a way to implement Neoliberalism tactics with this vital resources that in the past 25 years has become another profitable and valuable asset just as oil or any other source of Energy.  This included tariff free tactics that harm the locality in the worst way since it is an ‘open key’ to poor nation’s resources when it comes to having these major corporations invading a territory, buying it and extracting everything they can and need from it without any local intervention. In 1992 the UN declares that Water is Not a Right but a Commodity.

                     

                    • Transnational Corporations have become the owners of water by the aid of the World Trade Organization known as ‘The Quad’  who are the United States, Canada, Japan en the European Union. There’s been demonstrations/protests that have lead to deaths of people through these new colonization processes that entail the use of power and control over resources that generate profit as opposed to the entitlement to water as a human right –  we have already reached that time when wars are happening due to water, and where more deaths due to the lack, pollution, rights and use to this liquid are taking place every day.

                     

                    • In Mexico, politicians that have been corporate managers have endowed their ‘businesses’ with unlimited access to resources like electricity and water in order for the company to flourish in this country – this is how a single company is considered to rule an entire nation when having privileges that half of the entire Nation’s population lack: access to potable water without having to pay for it – this is what Coca-Cola became during Fox’s administration.
                    • In some other countries in Africa, Water is more expensive than coca cola which forces people to drink the ‘unknown ingredients’ beverage instead of having access to water that is being pumped from their own locality but sold to them in plastic bottles.

                     

                    • Crops and other goods that require a lot of water for their production are exported according to laws of supply and demand, which means that the water is being used to satisfy other country’s necessities and levels of consumption by using resources that are from a locality far away that usually doesn’t benefit at all from such exporting process other than of course, money which is even then a minimum portion of the final revenue that corporations make wherein, for example, selling water in bottles ensures earning thousands of time more money than the original price paid to get the liquid and bottle it up. This is all built in a slave-master relationship where corporations take a hold of territories, use local workforce to establish the necessary plants to make plastic bottles and bottle water up without informing the people of all the toxicity that these processes imply. Corporations like Nestlé pump 200 gallons of water per minute in order to bottle it up without any regulation which makes it loose of any certainty that the final product, such as bottled water, is in fact safe to consume.

                     

                    • Politics and corruption: 87+ corporations are now investing and taking a hold of the water around the planet, including ground water that is being extracted by buying property. All profit making endeavors lead to seeking new territories to ‘conquer’ where corporations can get a hold of the Water in a particular country.  Even the process of desalination implies that water will be taken from the common property and returned to the people/public in the form of a product to be sold thousands of times more expensive than if they drank it from their faucet, not to mention that the faucet water is meant to be regularly tested whereas there is no regulation whatsoever in bottled water.

                     

                    • There are multiple problems that come from drinking bottled water and it has become the most popular way to drink it thanks to an effective media-marketing campaign that lacks any proper information to reveal the chemical dangers that drinking bottled water implies, besides the profitable business that it is for the corporations that are absolutely unregulated to sell and export water without any pertinent information that may declare it is in fact purified water – because it isn’t.

                     

                    • Governmental and Corporate powers have allied to promote water privatization and profitable water business regardless of the known problems that exist when selling water in plastic bottles, but also understanding how this is being accepted and allowed because of lacking information about the actual problems that this causes in health and in the long run causing more expenses in the health sector than any form of profit – yet we don’t seem to grasp the fact that all of this exists due to how we have accepted and allowed ourselves to turn our natural vital resources into commodities.

                     

                    water wars - equal money

                     

                    • Cities with the largest population don’t have enough water to sustain everyone with a constant availability of the liquid. This is how water is now being brought from states nearby through pipeline systems to supply the ever increasing demand of water.

                     

                    • Once that water becomes a corporate endeavor, the possession of water is now a matter of economic importance similar to oil, leading to regulations wherein even accumulating the water from the rain is being prohibited by legal systems mostly fixed to suit corporate interests.

                     

                    • This has lead to public uprisings that have already caused deaths while demanding that corporations stay away from what should be a public good and not a matter of commercial disputes and privatization. It is only in Cochabamba, Bolivia – the same place where McDonalds went bankrupt – that it was possible to expel the transnational Bechtel from trying to privatize the water – this is depicted in the movie También La Lluvia (Even the Rain). However in Paraguay, a similar situation is emerging where now territories are being owned for purposes of privatization with the consent of Paraguay’s parliament, which speaks about again the relationship between corporate lobbyists and governmental powers acting in a profitable manner instead of providing and securing people’s well being and access to water for the people and by the people of that particular area/country.

                     

                       
                    • Water is not mentioned in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This means that we haven’t yet made of this vital liquid part of our unalienable human rights. There’s already an organization promoting the addition of the following right to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights promulgated by the United Nations:

                      Article 31:

                      Everyone has the right to clean and accessible water, adequate for the health and well-being of the individual and family, and no one shall be deprived of such access or quality of water due to individual economic circumstance.


                      http://article31.org/

                     

                    Why is it not added? Huge corporate interests tampering the ability to reclaim Water as a Fundamental Human Right – however, the reality is that we haven’t united ourselves to actually implement this at a Constitutional level through democratic means- We are still waiting yet, for how long and how much more detrimental processes will we continue to directly and indirectly participate in before we wake up?

                     

                    • A problem is also the lack of proposed solutions as this website reveals: “Solutions from the World Water Organization?”
                    • “Coming Soon”

                    http://www.theworldwater.org/water_solutions.php

                     

                    • The reality is that we are causing all of this water pollution and business-making schemes due to the accepted and allowed separation that we have created toward all of the Earth’s resources, the animal kingdom and ourselves and neglecting the fact that we are in fact equal and one as the living substance that we are all made of. We as human beings should have been the ones that guarded our best interest in equality as life; instead we have turned life into a business making machine where we all want to be winners without realizing that entails creating losers – we are no all  facing the consequences of allowing this at all the levels that we have reviewed here thus far. We caused the problems, we must create the solutions.

                            • The Vital element for Life  – which is Water – Must be a Universal Human Right and a common good; this means that money won’t determine your access to it, nor will it be able to be turned into a profitable business within the Equal Money System that will be implemented according to the Fundamental Human Rights as proposed by the Equal Life Foundation where every human being will be entitled to equal rights to the necessary means to live in dignity as that is what is best for all.

                             

                            • This can also be acknowledged in a United Nations Convention where it is declared that Water is a Human Right, however as we know rights are not enforced and actually implemented by all nations. Therefore, it must be part of the Global Trust that we can create where no particular nation has control over it other than for equal distribution and management purposes at a local level. No particular administration will be able to influence that which is declared to be a patrimony of every individual who will be entitled to the use and consumption of water in a self-responsible manner, which means proper education and new ways of usage can be implemented to ensure the efficiency in the use of it.

                             

                            • We have to conduct governmental changes that can put a definitive stop to this abuse stemming from privatization carried out by corporations in conjunction with politicians/ governmental authorities.  Our participation through  direct democratic process to enter the political arena is a necessary step to ensure we, the people, get to settle an agreement where Water becomes a Human Right and as such managed by the Equality Based Governance where it is understood that each one of us will monitor and ensure that the distribution and use of water is conducted in a best for all methodology. It’s already proven that unity, organization and a common effort is the way forward to change our acceptance and allowance of this profitable business that we have turned water into – instead we implement and establish Equal Access to Water within the framework of Basic Fundamental Human Rights and the Equal Money System and Equal Money Capitalism. Having or lacking money won’t determine whether you benefit from it or not.

                             

                            • This requires necessary changes in all our current living habits beginning with agricultural and industrial practices to ensure that the production processes are not polluting our water, air/ environment since it is the vital cycle of water that must be taken care of and restored to a process where we can obtain the necessary water by respecting the time necessary for it to filter and then be ready for our use and consumption again. Recycling water is an option, but investing in further research on how to obtain water through for example, condensation processes is another option as well as funding any necessary scientific projects to purify water once that there will be no corporate interest tampering this emerging technology to do so.

                             

                            • It is in our best interest to maximize natural resources’ efficiency, reestablishing and correcting the filtration process of the water in the same soil and territory where it will be used– meaning that we have to ensure we stop transportation of water to maintain central cities that are taking up the most resources from distant places, causing already severe damages to the ecosystems that are having their water being siphoned. This means becoming aware of the destabilization that ensues when we try and ‘give water’ to places where there is non to maintain cities were life is not made sustainable yet.

                             

                            • We all have to become aware of the habits with regards to water usage, but also understanding the necessary changes in assessing what we need and how we produce it, so that all processes are aligned to resource efficiency along with the necessary water treatment plans to ensure that all necessary preventive measures are established; money won’t be a limitation to not do this and science will be encouraged to find new materials, new means and methods to produce what we require to live.

                             

                            • Local agriculture in terms of the Food System will enable a region’s water resources to support the local Food Production; this means ensuring that the water are feeding and sustaining the locality instead of being siphoned in exports, disrupting not only the local economy but also the natural cycles of water. Another measure is stopping the creation of dams and instead create alternative ways to retain rain water to enable the hydrologic cycle to re-establish itself  to ensure that the filtration of water through the soil is adequate. Another measure can be limiting housing in particular areas where the amount of water is compromised or non existent – this  will ensure stopping creating unnecessary infrastructure just to please the interests of a minority that are currently possible due to the power that money has. This entails the necessary educational processes in terms of population, buying habits, and use of water in a responsible way, as the vital element to life that it is and must be available for all equally.

                             

                            • Reform at a Constitutional Level and make the necessary reforms and amendments will make of Water a Fundamental Human Right where Waters are protected from any organization or institution that may want to abuse it for other purposes other than supporting life as what’s best for all.  Corporations won’t exist as profit-making machines, but actual producers of goods that can go re-forming their production processes to be genuinely environmental friendly and quality producers. Water is the key element to live, thus it is in our best collective interest to ensure everyone benefits from water and learns how use it in the most efficient way.

                             

                            The following is part of the Constitutional Fundamental Human Rights as promulgated by the Equal Life Foundation.

                               

                              The Fourth Fundamental Human Right is a Fundamental Right as well, because the Human cannot Exist without Clean Water. Thus, Water (also freely Provided by the Earth – except for the part of Purifying it, which is the Human Labour part) – is a Fundamental Human Right that is Not Possible to be Negotiated, Sold or in any other way Used to Diminish Another Human Being. To Do such things is In Fact Human Rights Violations and a Crime.

                                            • No more privatization, no more wars, no more points of control , no more pollution or abuse from corporations dominating this vital resources. Instead all corporations or organizations that decide to work with water will be for the purpose of ensuring the best administration of water, treatment plans and any other emerging technology that will enable us to purify water and make it available for more people until everyone is covered.  This won’t be a business, but a decision to do what is Best for All since that is also implying our own well being is secured and guaranteed such as having sufficient water for everyone to live.

                                            361. Food is a Human Right | Equal Money

                                            There is sufficient food and resources for everyone to have the necessary daily and sustainable supply of quality nourishment to live and support our physical bodies in the best way possible. The problems are corporate interests and a rigged system that doesn’t grant access to this Basic Human Right. Money in Equal Money is a rights document that ensures all individuals are given money/access to  buy the necessary food to fulfill a healthy quality living standard that is best for all, including animals and sustainability of the Earth’s resources.

                                            • People around the globe Lack Food due to the configuration of our current economic system designed to only benefit a minority while leaving the majority out of the picture of dignified living conditions and equal living standards:

                                              • “The population of the US, Canada, and the EU combined. The number of malnourished people worldwide is just under 1 billion people – nearly a seventh of the global population.”

                                              The vast majority of hungry people (98 percent) live in developing countries, where almost 15% of the population is undernourished.

                                              One out of six children — roughly 100 million — in developing countries is underweight.

                                                    • There are 1 Billion undernourished people in the world today. That means one in eight people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life. Hunger and malnutrition are in fact the number one risk to the health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
                                                    • Among the key causes of hunger are natural disasters, conflict, poverty, poor agricultural infrastructure and over-exploitation of the environment.
                                                    • As well as the obvious sort of hunger resulting from an empty stomach, there is also the hidden hunger of micronutrient deficiencies which make people susceptible to infectious diseases, impair physical and mental development, reduce their labour productivity and increase the risk of premature death.
                                                    • Hunger does not only weigh on the individual. It also imposes a crushing economic burden on the developing world. Economists estimate that every child whose physical and mental development is stunted by hunger and malnutrition stands to lose 5-10 percent in lifetime earnings.

                                                   

                                                  it costs 25 us cents per day to giv a child all thenutrients needed to grow up healthy

                                                  “It takes only $0.25 for the World Food Programme to give a hungry schoolchild a cup of nutritious food. $50 will feed a child at school for an entire year.”

                                                  There is more money spent on War than on Food

                                                   

                                                   

                                                    • Hunger also weakens the immune system. Deprived of the right nutrition, hungry children are especially vulnerable and become too weak to fight off disease and may die from common infections like measles and diarrhoea. Each year, almost 7 million children die before reaching the age of five; malnutrition is a key factor is over a third of these deaths

                                                  • Most of the world’s hungry live in developing countries. According to the latest Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) statistics, there are 870 million hungry people in the world and 98 percent of them are in developing countries.  They are distributed like this:
                                                  • 578 million in Asia and the Pacific
                                                    239 million in Sub-Saharan Africa
                                                    53 million in Latin America and the Caribbean
                                                    37 million in the Near East and North Africa
                                                  • 19 million in developed countries

                                                   

                                                    • Hungry farmers
                                                    • FAO calculates that around half of the world’s hungry people are from smallholder farming communities,  surviving off marginal lands prone to natural disasters like drought or flood. Another 20 percent belong to landless families dependent on farming and about 10 percent live in communities whose livelihoods depend on herding, fishing or forest resources.
                                                    • The remaining 20 percent live in shanty towns on the periphery of the biggest cities in developing countries. The numbers of poor and hungry city dwellers are rising rapidly along with the world’s total urban population.

                                                   

                                                    • Women
                                                    • Women are the world’s primary food producers, yet cultural traditions and social structures often mean women are much more affected by hunger and poverty than men. A mother who is stunted or underweight due to an inadequate diet often give birth to low birthweight children.
                                                    • Around 50 per cent of pregnant women in developing countries are iron deficient (source: Unicef). Lack of iron means 315,000 women die annually from hemorrhage at childbirth. As a result, women, and in particular expectant and nursing mothers, often need special or increased intake of food.

                                                   

                                                    • Rural risk
                                                    • Three-quarters of all hungry people live in rural areas, mainly in the villages of Asia and Africa. Overwhelmingly dependent on agriculture for their food, these populations have no alternative source of income or employment. As a result, they are vulnerable to crises. Many migrate to cities in their search for employment, swelling the ever-expanding populations of shanty towns in developing countries.

                                                   

                                                   

                                                  WHY

                                                  • Nature

                                                    Natural disasters such as floods, tropical storms and long periods of drought are on the increase — with calamitous consequences for food security in poor, developing countries.

                                                   

                                                  • War
                                                  • From Asia to Africa to Latin America, fighting displaces millions of people from their homes, leading to some of the world’s worst hunger emergencies. Since 2004, conflict in the Darfur region of Sudan has uprooted more than a million people, precipitating a major food crisis — in an area that had generally enjoyed good rains and crops.

                                                   

                                                  • In war, food sometimes becomes a weapon. Soldiers will starve opponents into submission by seizing or destroying food and livestock and systematically wrecking local markets. Fields and water wells are often mined or contaminated, forcing farmers to abandon their land.

                                                   

                                                  • When conflict threw Central Africa into confusion in the 1990s, the proportion of hungry people rose from 53 percent to 58 percent. By comparison, malnutrition is on the retreat in more peaceful parts of Africa such as Ghana and Malawi.

                                                   

                                                  • Agricultural infrastructure
                                                  • In the long-term, improved agricultural output offers the quickest fix for poverty and hunger.

                                                   

                                                  • All conspire to limit agricultural yields and access to food.

                                                   

                                                  • Too many developing countries lack key agricultural infrastructure, such as enough roads, warehouses and irrigation. The results are high transport costs, lack of storage facilities and unreliable water supplies.

                                                   

                                                  • But, although the majority of developing countries depend on agriculture, their governments economic planning often emphasizes urban development.

                                                   

                                                  • Over-exploitation of environment

                                                    Poor farming practices, deforestation, overcropping and overgrazing are exhausting the Earth’s fertility and spreading the roots of hunger.
                                                  • Increasingly, the world’s fertile farmland is under threat from erosion, salination and desertification.

                                                   

                                                    • Poverty Trap
                                                    • In developing countries, farmers often cannot afford seed to plant the crops that would provide for their families. Craftsmen lack the means to pay for the tools to ply their trade. Others have no land or water or education to lay the foundations for a secure future.

                                                   

                                                  • This is the result of seed control imposed by corporations like Monsanto that ensure farmers become mere labor force to produce food that is in accordance to an agenda of privatization, genetic modification, resource control and further contamination that is leading farmers to the point of suicide when realizing the contracts that they are forced to sign if they want to keep themselves ‘in business’ – The same happens with the monopolization of food distribution that leads to massive profits to a few chains that have all control of products that we consume where not only price but also the quality and conditions of our meals are being corrupted in order to fulfill more profit-making agendas where any form of actual care for our health is overridden by the need to control and generate more money out of a basic human need, which is food

                                                  • Food is a Fundamental Human Right and it must be granted to every individual by Constitutional Right where all Human Beings are given access to all foods and  nutrients to live a healthy and fulfilling life. This is possible due to understanding that all Resources of the Earth must be Equally distributed/ given access to all inhabitants of the planet in order to feed ourselves properly. It is a certainty that lacking resources is not the problem, but rather the system of power and control that would not grant all equal access to this – this will be solved through the implementation of Equal Money where your money is your access to that which we require to live  in the best possible condition.

                                                   

                                                   
                                                  In an Equal Money System, Food will be a Basic Human Right. Food will no longer be detrimentally linked to money, where money decides the availability and quality of food and transparency of information. Food will no longer be tool for Profit but a Source of Life.

                                                  • Equal Money Capitalism: Your work will enable you to earn money to buy the best quality food available existent in a system where profit won’t define the type of food you obtain, instead the highest quality standards will be implemented to know exactly what it is that we are consuming and how it has been produced from the moment of extraction to its final distribution center. This is part of the necessary transparency to ensure no hidden agendas are integrated in the very foods we eat. There won’t be privatization of resources, but organized labor to extract and produce sufficient food to ensure it is enough for everyone in the world in a sustainable basis.

                                                   

                                                  • We realize that providing a fulfilling diet for all individuals increases the ability for human beings to be well developed as well as improving performance in educational processes. All Children will have access to food from the moment of conception, gestation in the mother’s womb to ensures proper development,we understand that healthy mothers and children are the foundation of the preventive measures to eradicate diseases, virus and weaker immunologic systems. Information about proper nutrition will also go hand in hand with necessary education for parents to know how to feed their child in all various stages of their growth and development.

                                                   

                                                  • Quality foods will be a global standard that will form part of the global transparency to disclose all processes involved in food production, labeling of products to inform the people what is exactly being consumed – this means that many of our products will have to be reconfigured and reassessed according to its actual nutrimental value as opposed to mere profit-making products that do more harm than any good.

                                                   

                                                  • Food Safety: By Legal determination, all proven to be Cancerous substances, toxic chemicals, pollutants, fertilizers, genetically modified seeds and any other form of deliberate intervention to our food that is detrimental for living beings’ health will cease to exist once that we, the people of the world, ensure that our food is purified and reconfigured to be of actual support and is safe for every individual that consumes it – this is part of the de-monopolization process that will take place once that profit is no longer the driving force in our world system and corporations cease to have power over what we eat.  Instead providing quality healthy foods will be the standard that is sustained, guarded and supervised by all individuals as it is part of our collective responsibility to never again allow tyrant corporations to take control of our food, crops and distribution of it.  All necessary research to reverse these effects will form part of the restoration of our directive principle upon the food that we eat.

                                                   

                                                  • Consumption habits will be taught to parents and teachers where our food preferences will be transformed to be of actual support in accordance to physical body requirements. Diets will be given to every person and caretaker of minors to ensure that by virtue of having equal access to food, the nutritional requirements are given to all as an actual Human Right – this means that the Access to Food that we in fact Require is part of the new way in which we will ensure that everyone has the necessary means to live well. It will depend on each one’s work and further consumption preferences to buy extra treats, but the basics will be granted as a basic necessity that will be covered by default – this is the real end of Hunger.

                                                   

                                                  • The Government’s function – which will be any individual that wants to cooperate with supervision purposes to ensure all food production and distribution is optimized in an best for all manner. This will include designating the necessary resources for scientific and agricultural research to enhance food production technologies, optimize it and restore it to function in accordance to the natural cycles of the Earth, along with necessary corrections for further resource efficiency in all the processes involved in food production – this will include rehabilitation of eroded and ‘dead fields’ to be suitable for crops again, as well as providing the necessary infrastructure and education for people in places where food has not been grown due to lack of resources.

                                                   

                                                  • We will all support with Food Production according to the laws of physical supply and demand which means there are no market forces that determine the availability of food, it will be a process of logistics, human labor/work force, technology, transportation, distribution and sustainability at an ecological level what will be taken into consideration to ensure that food is guaranteed to all 7 billion people in this Earth – it is possible, we simply have to create the necessary infrastructure to do so in order to guarantee the application of the Fundamental Human Right to grant Food to all individuals equally.

                                                    Food is the Third Basic Human Right. Without Food, Nobody can Exist.

                                                  • Knowing with certainly what we are consuming/ drinking is the greatest safety measure we can co-create by working as a team that ensures only what is best for all is conducted in our food production processes. Food labeling will be an imperative requirement as well as providing the necessary nutritional education as mentioned to ensure that no underweight or overweight is produced – this will go hand in hand with removing products containing substances that are only meant to create addictions, like too much sugar, artificial flavors and growth enhancements, since the starting point of our food will be to nurture ourselves, not to make money out of it. Ensuring your child will be given the best quality foods is ensuring a lifetime of healthy habits and conditions – this is only possible if we all cooperate to become equal supervisors of how our food is produced, packaged and distributed.

                                                  357. Self Leadership and Equal Money

                                                  The way to stop being led by interests that do not benefit all life in equality is by standing One and Equal to the powers we have abdicated our self responsibility to – this means: Each one of us have to Become and Stand as Equal Leaders to Create and Direct ourselves to establish a World System that is Best for All.

                                                  Problem                                                             

                                                  • Now that we understand how Self Governance will become the new way of organizing ourselves in our society, it is necessary to understand what was the initial abdication of Self Responsibility at a social and individual level to see how we went from directing ourselves according to the laws of nature, our environment and this physical reality in terms of what was available to eat, the necessary actions that we had to direct in order to  sustain our lives in our communities and how we then created an absolute hierarchical division that took us to exist in a polarized state of coexistence with master-slave relationships that remained as such until today – just with different names and scenarios. We believed that slavery was only inflicted onto people that were forced to work with little to no pay doing inhumane and straining jobs that no one else in their absolute self-determined faculties would have agreed to do. 

                                                    The history of our civilization proves till this day that the moment we are coerced by any means to exist in a state of limitation, we are by definition accepting a form of enslavement to that which causes the limitation – in our current society it is money.  As we have reviewed in previous blogs, this is caused by the acceptance and allowance of a governmental structure that wasn’t designed to support, supervise, protect and empower people, but instead do the exact opposite: it was the necessary structure to establish an entire system of control over the population to generate the most benefit for a minority around the world which used politics, economy, religion and media – among others – as ways to sustain that structure and be benefited by it.

                                                   

                                                  • Our media, our education, our history, family, books, labor, entertainment, religions, language, monetary system, banking systems were all vehicles and the necessary tools and organizations that were created to ensure that we are born into this world ready to accept a state of inequality, abuse, coercion, fear, ruling powers, scarcity, exploitation, fanaticism, winners and losers, cheaters that are cheered and pondered as winners, governments that set up terrorist acts to unite people, charities that are meant to accept poverty as an ‘eternal’  problem in this world, justifying lack of money and education as an outflow of an individual’s ‘lack of enthusiasm’ to improve themselves, aberrant behavior as some form of ‘bad gene’ that indisposes an individual to succeed in life, but no one dares to examine how we created the problem and in this same tonality, we haven’t bothered to really understand how every single bit of evil as the reverse of life that is existent in this, exists as such by our own acceptance and allowance of one initial point of separation at a social level: the people and the government as the relationship of power that we all integrated as part of ‘how the world works/ how our society functions’ – this was a great mistake. We saw it happening all the time, generation after generation never questioning it, always bowing to the master and accepting the fact that we can get to be ‘a bit more free’ with more money, but never really be free from being a slave to he same money that gives us such freedom – this means that: we were never in fact ‘meant’ to be free in our current world-system and political structure.

                                                   

                                                  • To be ‘led’ we first had to accept a condition of being ‘less to others’ that were placed by default in his preprogrammed system to be ‘the leaders.’ This is how with this inherent accepted and allowed division, we allowed ourselves to be owned/ directed and controlled by others. Thus, by separating our private life/’civil society’ from the state affairs managed by a governing elite, we accepted and allowed the master-slave relationship that we are living in today where we protest and ask for justice to a system that was Never meant to be just in itself (read the two previous entries on Activism and Self Governance in this blog for further explanation.)  We endowed the government with divine powers that we got to be aware of even in our History books with the absolutist and despotic kings that were accepted as such by virtue of their self-proclamation as them. This is how through force and belief our own enslavement was forged as the identity of who we are as part of this state configuration that was meant to be the ultimate polarization possible to the benefit of a few, which is unfortunately what we are living in today.

                                                   

                                                  • In this regard there is really no ‘bad governance’ when the very blueprint of governance was never meant to be that of creating a well being and benefits for all; it would be like judging a gun/weapon to commit mistakes or be a ‘bad tool’ because of killing people, without realizing it was engineered to do just that.  The same with laws that stem from and are created when a relationship of power is established between two or more parties, which means we would not require all of these uber-complicated legal systems if we had agreed to live in equality as life. Here it is to understand that ‘Equality as Life’ is Not ‘idealism,’ it is how things should have Always Been, we just accepted all limitations and complicated laws because of wanting to have power over others, we wanted to guard/ protect our own interests, our own separation from one another to win and have ‘more’ than the rest, that’s what our laws serve for. Thus abiding to the law in a state brewed with with bad weeds will obviously lead to a rotten stale taste of a tea that will never ‘taste good’ because the mechanisms as the words and intent implied were never meant to benefit Life in Equality.

                                                   

                                                  • We have accepted and allowed ourselves to be led to build our own prison in the cognitive dissonant state of thinking that we were being lead to a prosperous future by our rulers, kings, governors, authorities and in this process having to accept ‘some’ limitations and suffering  to ‘eventually’ get to a state of bona fide bonanza and absolute living enjoyment, which instead of this stability and ‘good governance’ being the guidance to create harmonious societies, we dictated our lives through fear, extortion, subjugation to a system of fear as ‘the guiding light’ where we believed there was no other way to do things and essentially being coerced to ‘accept it or leave it’ if we want to keep having food and a roof over our head – we became fearful to lose the right to life that we abdicated to these authorities, and learned to only Obey and ‘Follow the Leader.’

                                                   

                                                  • As time progressed in history, any form of ‘Good Governance’ became a ‘utopia’ and something really separate from reality that would never be possible to achieve having the human elements of greed, desire for power, specialness, self interest, selfishness, etc., wherein someone would ‘always want to be in control/ be on top’ of others – but this only came to be an accepted and allowed reality because we didn’t question the order any further, we accepted it as divine, as our fate, our cross, our suffering to eventually maybe get to an endless-fulfillment in heaven after death. There were many reasons why we accepted this imposition of power by these hegemons in our governmental systems, which eventually became our current monetary, banking and financial systems that rule us all under one single symbol that is well known to everyone no matter what language you speak: money as the tool used by those in governance/ positions of authority/ corporate directors  to control the masses, to administrate resources in a rigged manner so that no one was ever in fact free unless they were somehow allied with the major establishment of this power structure – this seldom ever happened.

                                                   

                                                  • In a parallel mode, at an individual human being level,  this same imposition of power exists as our own mind in which we accepted the dominance of belief systems, experiences as fears, desires, feelings, competition, love, hate, relationships of winning and losing to become ‘our nature’ and something with which we occupied ourselves enough to only have time to make a living – earn money in the system – and deal with our personal inner conflicts, personal relationships and cope with our ‘human nature’ – psychological problems – which has prevailed as the best way in which we have become subject to our emotions and experiences generated at a mind level, instead of becoming self directive in everything that we experience,  because no matter how much one seeks to reach a level of ‘self improvement’ and ‘feel great’ about yourself: the moment that you are still bound to work for more than 40 hours a week without any other option to make a living you must know that ‘feeling great’ about yourself does not solve the root of the problem that caused us to feel ‘bad’ and be unstable, insecure, selfish, greedy and fearful beings,  because the root is not an experience only, but a flawed system never designed to establish equality as life – thus our minds became our own rulers, our own policemen in the head that has dictated every single aspect of our self experience in our lives, which means that we externalized this mind self-determination and limitation onto a structure that has ruled and dominated our lives as the world system.

                                                   

                                                  • We criticize our leaders as incompetent, corrupt, idiotic, despotic, fools, greedy, killers etc., however we have never dared to look in Self Honesty and realize that they are the embodiment of everything that we have collectively created as the result of the inherent separation we all accepted and allowed in the procreation of these two major divisions in society:  the ruling class and the working class, the masters and the slaves, the poor and the rich, the educated, the badly or uneducated ones, etc.  Thus what ‘they’ became and embody as leaders is in fact revealing to us where and how we have abdicated our responsibility to be self directive, to be self responsible to the environment we live in, to ensure each other lives in the best possible way, to care for one another as equals…. none of this has been implemented as part of our education, unless you are in some form of religious school where they teach you some of these values but even then, you are taught to be a leader upon others that you will ‘treat as equals’ but, definitely earn more than them. Thus, it is to emphasize our collective responsibility within this world system – we have always been living in this world repeating the same patterns, the same mistakes, the same history year after year, generation after generation without a question.

                                                   

                                                  • This is how any ‘fight for freedom’ can only exist if we gave up our ability to be self-directive and self-willed to take part in the organization and structuring of our societies to be self directive and govern ourselves effectively, which is ultimately intervening in politics; and because we accepted an absurdity such as a ‘political elite’ it was obvious that the way in which our society was going to be managed, directed and governed was going to be in accordance to the best interests of these individuals. Thus we can’t blame them from doing their job in their intended and self interested way – instead we have to look at how we all and allowed such power-structure belief and legitimize it as the way how our society is organized. That’s where we gave up any form of ‘liberty and justice’ because we accepted the patriarch, the god and savior structure instead of taking responsibility for ‘public affairs’ ourselves, which means that there should be no such separation between ‘public’ and ‘private’ in the first place if we had all set up a world system that simply considered to establish equality to live our lives in the best way possible.

                                                   

                                                   

                                                  Solution                                                              

                                                  • Self Leadership entails our ability to guide ourselves within and without to ensure that the principle of Life in Equality is realized, lived and expressed as who we are/ what we do, and as such generate the same proper living conditions and guidance in the form of a self-governance in a managerial organization that will simply reflect the individual order we will integrate as part of ourselves in the form of self direction, self guidance as self leadership, being ready to create and establish self-change in our reality by principle, not by fear or any other secondary reaction.

                                                   

                                                  • To dissolve the separation between the public and private, the people and the political elite, we have to become that which we have separated ourselves from: we have to use the system, become the political actors as the ones that will ensure we stop the past within ourselves as the abdication of our self direction and self governance to a power structure as governments, laws and money and redefine, redirect and lead ourselves and each other to coexist in equality by using the same organizational structures with a new starting point: establishing life  in equality through a new political, social and economic order such as redefining Money as Life. This process implies that every structure that does not conform to the Equalization of each individual as Life will cease to exist and/or be transformed/ aligned to adopt the new living Principle of Life in Equality as What is Best for All.

                                                   

                                                  • To ensure this is possible, we have to consider again the process of Education that we will have to direct, implement and walk ourselves in order to redefine the values that have been accepted and allowed as ‘how society works’ by tradition, by the value of money over life, morality, religions, media, national identities etc. Thus by redefining money as life and establishing a system where self-governance exists, we lead ourselves to the best possible outcomes by the integration of Self Responsibility, Self Will, Self Honesty, Self Forgiveness to develop Common Sense  and  become the actual directors of our destiny, instead of only being a consequential outflow guided by a ‘fate’ that we didn’t have any control upon.

                                                   

                                                  • We will develop and use  common sense and living realizations to become the directors and ‘leaders’ of our every day living to become, sustain and maintain our world as a functioning whole in Equality.This is how when the individual is educated to become acquainted with living values will lead to a best for all living condition – we will cease to require any governments or leadership outside of ourselves, we will instead become it individually.

                                                   

                                                  Redefining Direction/ Self Leadership:

                                                  “Dire”-“ected” – electing that which has become dire (separation, conflict, friction, fighting, violence, deception, dishonesty, secrets, lies, wars, poverty, backchat, thoughts, emotions/feelings etc.) within ourselves, our personal worlds and this world as a whole, and changing / transforming that dire nature /consequence into that which will assist/support self, self’s living and this world into an expression that will bring forth a self, a living and a world that will produce/manifest Life. “Life” where self/self’s living is aligned with walking what is/will be best for self as all, to walk oneself as a living example for others, in stopping/changing/transforming that direness of self, and so others do the same and we become Living Beings that honour/respect/consider/regard ourselves/each other as equals and as one. And as all stand together in stopping/changing/transforming that which has become/is “Dire” of ourselves, our living and this world = we become Directed and it is done, as we have elected, changed and transformed the direness of this existence, and birthed Life from the physical.” – Sunette spies 

                                                   

                                                  • This self direction begins at an individual level every single moment that we are able to, instead of  benefitting the mind, the system, the past structures of power and control, do what is best for all life as a common self interest. Self Honesty implies acting and living at a physical level where we work together to first establish the necessary living disposition to be able to guide ourselves to coexist as life in equality, which will lead us to become the individuals that generate the necessary changes in the world  that  ensure we are honoring, supporting, benefitting each other as equals, doing what we would like others to do onto ourselves and becoming the examples to prove we don’t require someone to tell us what to do, how to do it and why doing it,  because we will be absolutely self aware of the cause and effect of our thoughts, words and deeds upon our reality.  Thus we remove the ‘command’ and superiority charge from the word leadership and instead live it as our ability to educate share and direct ourselves individually in equality – this resolves the need to have something/someone ‘outside’ of ourselves to do it for us.

                                                  • The ability to create ourselves as an actual expression of life as self-directive individuals is only possible within the integration of this living principle of Life in Equality, where our direction is genuine to create a benefit for ourselves and everyone else as equals.  This is thus establishing the ideal way in which our world should have always functioned; there is no need to make it an ‘utopia,’ it is by the work of our hands, practice education and self-directive abilities that we can create it ensure every single aspect of our lives is lived in the best possible manner.

                                                   

                                                  • We will also learn by experience how to do this, how to test what works/ what doesn’t work, how to fine tune our solutions and learn according to the application of new methods and ways to live the best possible way . This trial and error will exist because there is no preprogramming that will ensure things ‘work’ in the first go, yet the ability to try out all options will not be limited by money/ anything or anyone any more. This is how we will be able to direct/ guide and lead ourselves to solutions and new ways of living once that we go slowly but surely, unbinding ourselves from the power structures we have been so used to exist as, which is how an individual process of Self Leadership is required to be walked at an individual level, to establish Self-Trust and then be able to trust each other as individuals that will always act in the best interest of all Life in Equality.

                                                   

                                                  • We will shed the skin of idolatry, following leaders,  a religious master or guru or any other person that we have placed as ‘authority’ and ‘leader’ in order to establish ourselves as self directive, self responsible individuals.We will stop fearing  all forms of limitation and punishment if not ‘following the rules,’ because we will only follow the laws of our being which is Equality as Life where No Masters and No Slaves exist. We have to become and stand as the leaders that we always wanted to be but were too scared to become. It is our time now to become them.

                                                  Problem                                                                

                                                  • We have made Money more than the Value of Life – this implies that the outflows of our own creation have turned against us due to our desire to have power and control over others in the name of self interest and greed. There is no Integrity in the form of capitalism where money has become an end in itself, where life is not valued in Equality but only reduced to become another ‘item’  or product that can be transformed into a new need to make some profit out of it.

                                                   

                                                  • There is no Self Respect in a world where we bind each other to the relationships we form based on money which creates inequality, because there is no equal opportunity to make money to live in dignity.This enables the social polarization and Inequality that currently exists, where only a minority have the access to most of the wealth/ power in the world and mostly work on increasing it/capitalizing it. This creates the belief that such individuals are to be considered ‘more powerful’ than other human beings just because of having ‘more money’ which means that there is no Physical Common Sense as the regard of each individual as equal and requiring the same means to live and the same desires to have a happy and comfortable life, but instead we value the ability to abuse within a system where money decides who lives like a king and who starves to death.

                                                   

                                                  • There is no Authority in a world where what we see is Common Sense, what would be Best for All is diminished to be a ‘pipe dream’ or a ‘utopia’ when declaring that All individuals should be Supported in Equality to have the Best Living Condition possible – instead we abdicate our ability to direct ourselves as equals as life by delegating our power to a governmental structure where our ‘representatives’ have no genuine interest to guard everyone’s best interests in equality. Instead we justify the disparity based on the diversity of education, skills, country, race, age and general ‘environmental conditions’ which implies placing our living capacity and necessity subject to rules and regulations that limit each one’s living condition instead of enhancing it – and  justify this Inequality as something ‘real,’ when we all know that we are all made of flesh and bones, we all require the same elements to live.

                                                   

                                                  • We are not regarding and considering all other Life Forms as Equals within our reality, we have turned animals, plants and the Earth’s resources into mere raw materials that make us make money and keep fueling our current lifestyles. We have No Self Respect and no Consideration for them being also equal parts of who we are as One and Equal. This has been also the result of our Education and the way we conceive, perceive and understand reality wherein we have imposed our dominion as human beings, as knowledge and information that we call Intellect where there is no regard to what is Best for All, but only what will make the most profit and make only some be the winners in a system designed to create just that: winners and losers and call it ‘having to make a living.’

                                                   

                                                  • The origin of the problem to this system is often being diverted to only blame our current Authorities, while the reality is that the system is created and conformed by each one of us, which means that ‘The System’ is the reflection and result of each one of us as our Individual participation, it is what we have become as Self-Interest driven players of a game where we have complied to believe that ‘our goal in life is to seek to ‘make More’ than others’ and teach each other to never be satisfied with having just Enough and the necessary to live. There is this inherent drive to Greed that we fuel and live by as our purpose and intent throughout our life, which is reflected in the laws and terms that create the necessary conditions to ‘maximize profit’ and ‘ensure one’s success’ which is based upon the abuse imposed onto other individuals that are left deliberately ‘out of the game,’  so that they have no other option but working on slave-jobs that will enable them to ‘get money to live,’ instead of each one of us ensuring every person has equal access to dignified labor conditions that pays equal to any other position in a corporation or a business, since we are all humans and require the same type of support to live.

                                                   

                                                  • There is no Common Sense in a system where money is valued upon life and for that, it is our collective acceptance to believe that some are meant to be poor and some are meant to be billionaires. There is no common sense in a system configuration where two human beings made of the same flesh and bones and living in the same world can make $7.25 per hour on a regular work and others in ‘CEO’ positions can make up to $5000 per hour which, is the kind of contrast that proves there is no physical regard to a sensible value of ourselves as Life, we have become absolutely delusional to believe there is any way to justify this abuse of life and call it ‘success’ and ‘wealth.’

                                                   

                                                  • We live in a system where fearing each other to survive has become the essential characteristic of our human nature, the ‘survival of the fittest’ is the foundation of our schooling systems because we have conditioned each other to fear not having enough money to live – or never enough “success” to be satisfied with and always seeking for more – we know we cheat and lie to each other to make money, because that’s ‘how the system works’ and if not, one is prone to be robbed and subject to corruption because of some individuals having no means to make a living in a dignified manner. We fear at all times having to be left with no money and resorting to self abusive ways to subsist in a world where abusive jobs are allowed and unregulated by the laws that should protect our integrity and basic living rights by granting access and generating means for each one to have a dignified work to live – this Common Sense is Non existent in our society at this stage.

                                                   

                                                  • We fear our authorities the same way that any ‘god’ is feared, we accept the imposition of institutions like our own government, international organizations and institutions, banks and corporations as ‘the untouchable’ sectors of our society, as something we have ‘no power to change’ while disregarding that it is each one of us that have voted off our ability to change a system where no corporation is being regulated by democratic means.  There is no regard for our ‘Best Interest’ in a system where what matters is enhancing, ensuring and provoking what should be illicit enrichment instead of ‘profit making’ and justify it as one’s ability to pursue happiness. Our laws and regulations have become weapons against our own well being.

                                                  • The Cult of Individualism is adopted by each one as our lifestyle, our own religion where only our personal interests are considered, where we value who we are according to images/pictures and concepts as the ‘Idea’ of ourselves more than a physical and common sense integrity; instead we generate more ways to justify and excuse  the abuse of life and the transformation of each other as mere products and assets where even our children are dragged to become part of the ‘work force,’ where mothers are forced to give birth to children that have no medicals support or a certainty to be able to feed them properly, where we allow people to go homeless and live tents and survive on food stamps while having empty houses for sale and tons of food is disposed and maimed so that ‘no profit’ can be made out of its failed retail sale. These are all indicatives of there being no democracy whatsoever in this society, yet it still remains as our own ‘card’ left to restore the sanity that we have lost or never in fact lived before.

                                                   

                                                  • There is an entire world to redefine from the root and cause of the problem, which is the mind of ourselves as human beings that regard money as more than life, losing all physical commonsense of how we are the ones that created money, we accepted its ‘ways of existing’ and it is now our own creation that we are all enslaved by. Thus, it is our collective responsibility to take part in its rehabilitation, to transform the capitalist system to a sustainable and best for all living condition, as it always should have been, as it was intended to be but got high-jacked by personal desires to have all the power and control over others, a human trait that each one will have to ensure is corrected and aligned to recognize our Equality if we are to survive in this world – this is a process and it begins with redefining the meaning of our words and direct them to always ensure that life is regarded as equal in all.

                                                  • Equal Money Capitalism is the key to adapt, change and reform 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 vital requirements, and improve our individual development and social relationships with the base foundation of ensuring we support All people Equally to have access to this.

                                                   

                                                  • 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 where your living condition is ensured to be satisfactorily fulfilled by virtue of our collective effort. 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 contribution. This is a physical organic consideration at a social level, being a vital organ of the ecosystem and coexisting in symbiotic relationships within it.

                                                   

                                                  Equal Money Capitalism will be the necessary transition step to as a global society establish an Equal Money System as presented at www.equalmoney.org
                                                  Equal Money Capitalism therefore investigates what Capitalism should be like according to its very own principles – and thus, what requires to be adjusted within the current Capitalistic system to make it a system that works for everyone.
                                                  A few pointers:

                                                  • Full employment is not negotiable, each one requires to be employed and receive an equal ‘wage’. This implies that if a person’s job is replaced by a machine, that the person is not fired, but is given a different task in a different department of the company.
                                                  • Companies will be required to have an Environmental Department that is tasked with giving back to the Earth what was taken in the production process. For instance, if a company utilizes clean water for its production process – then the Environmental Department will be in charge of purifying the water so it can as much as possible be reintegrated into the ecosystem. If a company utilizes wood – then the Environmental Department will assist with planting trees in areas where it would be supportive for the ecosystem. Such departments will assist with the full employment requirement.
                                                  • Free stuff is not acceptable as this creates monopolies. It also implies that someone is not remunerated for their contribution in the production process. Free stuff can only be produced when you have slaves to produce them.
                                                  • Each worker in a company will be owner of the company, and thus, each one receives an equal share of the profit. This means that one’s profit share is one’s wage.
                                                  • No-one owns the Earth’s resources – they belong to the Earth. We are here and are able to utilize them and when we go, the Earth must be able to continue to support itself and the life on it. Therefore, when we pay a price for a good or service, we pay for labor only as we don’t require to pay any owner of the resource. Herein, raw resource management will be an important task of Government.
                                                  • Governments will be tasked with ensuring that each one is provided with their Basic Human Rights – therefore, things like Healthcare, Housing, Sanitation, etc. will be provided by the government and one pays for them through tax.
                                                  • If Equal Money Capitalism (EMC) is successful, we can reconsider whether a step towards an Equal Money System (EMS) is required or not.
                                                  Maite Zamora Moreno’s answer to Equal Money Capitalism: What is Equal Money Capitalism? – Quora
                                                   

                                                   

                                                   

                                                  • The removal of our current survival mode will be created as an outflow of each one of us living our responsibility to become active participants in our economy which will be founded upon providing equal support to everyone through having an assured access to Education and work to earn money and as such, each one becoming a well educated and integral participant of a society where the Living Principle is to create What is Best for All in Equality.  This ensures that everyone’s best interest is created/generated and sustained by the collective participation with equal consistent support ensured by direct democratic means, which is the form of government that will exist in a participatory economy where each one’s vote is counted to decide what is best for all.

                                                   

                                                  • Our self-interest as a Common Wellbeing Interest is to have a fulfilling living condition  with all our needs met and having access to a  comfortable, secure and assured  living conditions. In an Equal implementation of these capacities, we require to give access to such benefits in an equitable manner. How to do this? Through the equal profit distribution policy applied to 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.

                                                   

                                                  • All of these solutions require an extensive and gradual process that begins with the Process to take Self Responsibility for ourselves at an individual level to then be able to stand together to create the necessary political platform of individuals that can be proven to be acting and deciding what is best for all by our equal participation to do so. Direct Democracy through e-democratic processes and direct referendum are political solutions that are discussed further in the following blog and series:

                                                  • Life will be the only Value that exists. This means that no one will have to be sacrificed to create a general wellbeing, instead each one will become a person that lives to develop and enhance one’s living expression and skills/abilities  in order to excel within the consideration of what is best for all, becoming a living participant that takes part in the creation and production of these common wellbeing principles. Each one’s contribution to the common good will be the result of self-responsible individuals working toward the same outcome:  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, no violence, no abuse and no harm will exist or be allowed.

                                                   

                                                  •   By covering everyone’s Best for All condition, we ensure that no one seeks to deliberately abuse to create a relationship of power and control. This s the foundation of actual freedom between individuals, which is only able to exist if Everyone is Equally supported to Live in a Free condition, in other words not being bound by undemocratic rules and regulations, but instead implementing a Living System  based on 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 slave as 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 an example of how Self Responsibility in fact creates a state of freedom where no one is subjugated to do jobs/ work that they don’t want to do only because they ‘need the money.’ 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.

                                                   

                                                  • Being self determined and actually free with full authority upon our reality can only exist in a system where Self-Honesty is established as the basic mechanism that ensures the functionality of our society at a social, political and economic level, which means that every single word, every single action and social/political/economic system that we create must be engineered to ensure that each one’s living condition is granted and satisfied within the principle of What’s Best for All. This is how an actual evolution and development can take place in humanity, where we  focus on learning how to live and coexist as equals, deliberately changing our intrusive and abusive nature to become beings that are worthy of life and able to give to honor and trust each other by virtue of being equally participating to generate the common well being.

                                                  The alienation of the spectator to the profit of the contemplated object (which is the result of his own unconscious activity) is expressed in the following way: the more he contemplates the less he lives; the more he accepts recognizing himself in the dominant images of need, the less he understands his own existence and his own desires. The externality of the spectacle in relation to the active man appears in the fact that his own gestures are no longer his but those of another who represents them to him. This is why the spectator feels at home nowhere, because the spectacle is everywhere.  – Guy Debord, The Society of the Spectacle [1]

                                                   

                                                  Soft Imperialism by Culture and MediaContinuation

                                                  • Creating needs in people, tell them consuming is  ‘what life is all about’ and you get a certain market that will live a devoted life to praise consumption and reduce life to a series of experiences that end the moment a new trend comes out, a new experience to buy, a new gadget to wear and upgrade one’s image of  success worn as clothes, accessories, shoes, cars, pictures of being having the ‘great life’ – but, deep inside there is a strong sense of alienation that is  difficult to look from ‘outside’ because it is virtually everywhere as part of ‘who we are’ and the identities we become, which are the byproduct of the same profitable society that breeds consumers, not living beings.

                                                   

                                                  • Trading our goods and services has nothing o do with the cult of the image that we have built around consumerism, it is necessary to realize that our lives cannot be determined by the amount of experiences we have, how many ‘valuable objects’ we own, because these are all the values that keep the same system running, wherein our needs and desires are shaped in the image and likeness of celebrities that we seek to mimic and adopt as our own identity. That’s the configuration of our society and that’s why Debord emphasizes that we feel ‘at home’ nowhere, because the spectacle is everywhere, and everyone buys into it.

                                                   

                                                  The spectacle within society corresponds to a concrete manufacture of alienation. Economic expansion is mainly the expansion of this specific industrial production. What grows with the economy in motion for itself can only be the very alienation which was at its origin. (Debord, 1967)

                                                   

                                                  • What we grow every time we buy is our self-image built around the cult of what we own, how we look, what we choose as our ‘lifestyle.’ This alienation is not only existent toward that which we buy, having no idea how it is produced and where it will end once we’re ‘done’ with it – we get alienated from the very physical reality that we are as our physical body. We’ve made of our flesh and bones an Image that we seek to Adapt according to the images on billboards, creating eating disorders and self image obsessions that occupy a being’s entire life where even if food is not consumed, the image seeking pretty much consumes the being alive, making of an internal conflict a time-consuming entity that leads us to be absolutely unaware of reality, but only exist in the glorious self interest of me-my-image-and-myself.

                                                   

                                                  • The consumer culture is the greatest form of degradation that we have faced as  humanity, because it stopped being a momentary form of distraction a few hours a day or a momentary treat after a hard day of work, it’s become who we are and how we behave and  have shaped our values, beliefs, morals, relationships according to these  Images that are upgraded every season. This means that: you have to buy NEW things every time to be ‘up-to-date’ in a society that believes it is important to  have a fresh look and  identity according to mass-media trends and ensure you are ‘upgraded’ and follow what your social tribe of preference dictates to buy every other season – this has become ‘mandatory’ if you don’t want to face marginalization for not being ‘cool enough’ to have enough money to Buy new things on a constant basis. 

                                                   

                                                  • Children are taught to seek love, money and superhero traits – teenagers learn to be disillusioned about  a world that has nothing to do with the fantasy presented in movies and videogames, new heroes representing the ideal lifestyles of perfectly tailored models that become ‘the voice of a generation’ emerge as depressive-and-on-meds type of figures that values more spending time feeling a constant need for ‘something’ and seeking it surfing in the net, consuming drugs, buying, drinking, gossiping, playing with gadgets rather than enjoying physical interaction with each other to learn how to live in the first place.
                                                  • What’s the common denominator here? People seek experiences generated in the idleness of our sedentary lives that require constant updates of personal computers, phones, more and bigger flat screen TVS that constantly imprint the images we want to become. But, who has decided to present this to us? It is only in the benefit of those that sell the products that we get to ‘choose’ what we desire. Entertainment would not be an industry if the prefab images shown on TV weren’t available for sale.

                                                   

                                                  • We can see the pattern already: the main problem is our constant desire to Experience –  the world revolves around this. There would be no point to buy, consume, visit places and eat up stories to make us feel good.  We have diminished ourselves to a collection of experiences, memories, people that we believe are important to us for what they make us feel. Who benefits from this? Everyone that is able to create the perfect setting, the perfect stage for such ‘insta-moments,’ the perfect drug-drink to consume, the greatest clothes to wear, the greatest cars to show off, the most benefits that only a few can afford – which makes it even More special and exclusive.
                                                  • We live to praise our self-images that determine how valuable we are at the eyes of everyone else – is it? Or have we just become an illusion to such an extent that we cannot even get to question how we got ourselves into this insatiable state of consumption, leading us to a life of constant energy fixed desires, becoming drug addicts, sex  addicts, TV junkies, celebrity gossipers, government bashers, economy illiterates, freedoms seekers and god seekers, getting high and jumping off balconies to challenge ‘the system’ and make a general anthem of ‘Ignorance is Bliss’ as the road to walk for the next generations to come. 

                                                    How long can we keep this show running?  We have reached the bottom of our downward spiral – how much more repetition can we take?

                                                   

                                                  • Let’s look at our thoughts, see how many of them relate to an experience about who we are, how others see us, what we want to buy next, where we want to be? Were we the creators of these seemingly unstoppable desires? are we the result of the perfect feel good enslavement that is sold to us every time we want to Feel something new? Yes, it is – and we have all fell for it –doesn’t matter ‘who’ you are,  individualization has been made the most important thing that we hold, beyond any common sense of being breathing physical beings.

                                                   

                                                  • The truth is we have never really been ‘ourselves’ because we have only existed as mind systems seeking for energetic experiences that are bottled up, tagged and sold because we desire, hope and need it. We have sold our physical body to the devil, which is the system that we all feed with our desires, the greatest treats that justify a life of slavery, poverty and abuse for a majority,  because we all work to get these bits of heaven in order to numb ourselves from our reality that we ended up victimizing ourselves from, believing that the corporate monster is to blame, instead of looking at the very thinking processes that fuel this entire machinery that is seemingly as unstoppable as our own mind – here I state: it is Only a Belief that it can’t be stopped – We  have to take ourselves to the origin of our thoughts to prove such belief is simply an expensive  delusion.

                                                  • Considering practicality/money and necessity over experience, looking if what we want to buy in fact only feeds our ‘self image,’ pursuing the experience of owning something, or who one will be when compared to others that don’t have what we do, and instead look at the facts if one in fact Need what we are about to buy, or if I one is subconsciously buying an character-accessory to store within this personal vault of memories and experiences that we define as ‘who I am.’

                                                    This is a key experiment that I dare everyone reading this to do, and if you are Self Honest which means you don’t ‘fall’ for your desires, you should see a considerable amount of money remaining in your bank account/pocket/ under your mattress, because you will be able to stop yourself and realize that what you are buying is only an Illusion, that it will be a flickering moment just like a match that burns bright and consumes itself to ashes, requiring us to flick another to brighten the same darkness that we have avoided to become: physical stable living beings that do not require an Experience to be alive – think about this this, will generate a Great change in our consumer culture if we integrate this understanding in our day to day living behavior, which will include getting to know How our products are created, where they end up after they are no longer used and the consequential outflows of producing and distributing such products to satisfy our desires, then decide what we can keep and dispose all that only feeds greed.

                                                  • Solutions for isolation with our current gadgetry lifestyles. There is nothing wrong with the techno-advances that we have, but a few considerations are shared here:  once that we realize that we are not images, we’ll spent less time cultivating our fascinations to further specialize the ‘who we are’ as this character/self image toward others, we’ll spend that time developing a relationship with ourselves, to get to know that Self that has only existed as the byproduct of our society, of our parents and the media that filled the ‘void’ in our lives.

                                                    Here we can make it fun to – upon recognizing this prefab/ pre-packaged condition we all kept as ourselves– realize that we can in fact for the very first time in our human existence Decide who we want to be, integrate Values that consider our Equality as Life, living to become a contributor to a social transformation that will remove our spectacle attires, stripping ourselves  to see what remains once that we stop feeding our consumer driven and personality-cult obsessions. A group effort is required for this,each one of us will stand as an example of what it will take to stop being addicted to the mind and learn to appreciate the physical that is what has always been here, that we’ll  learn to trade as a living meaning of giving and receiving in Equality – no more greed for superiority and mind-driven personality fixes.

                                                  • Opening up our eyes from the illusion will mean a transformation in our entertainment and ‘variety production’ in this world. Imagine the amount of ‘special items’ dedicated to the cult of self that could be significantly reduced when people stop buying experiences and instead, learn how to invest on supportive items, genuinely enjoyable treats and re-learn how to communicate, share and essentially enjoy each other’s presence beyond the constant up keeping of a Character that we sold to others, in fear of being vulnerable about our real experiences, our questions, our thoughts and fears – we’ll be able to heal a drugged up, shopaholic and self abusive society with the ability to share our ‘Consumer Anonyms’ stories, as well as forgiving our constant competitions and fights over our pet peeves, that have also became necessary religions to idealize the perfect ‘originality’ that everyone sought to attain in our so-called lives.

                                                   

                                                  • We can make the crash and the fall of our mental high, the landing on Earth after the illusion of grandeur a humble experience to learn from each other, to forgive ourselves for having turned this Earth into a massive grave of products chocking animals on Earth an in the sea, bits of junk that once caused us a form of joy, never questioning if we actually needed that or not.

                                                   

                                                  • Consumerism as a disease will be treated at an individual level with the understanding that we have all complied to turn beings into slaves and nature, the animals, plants as assets that became accessories to our ideal prefab characters we sought to be and become. It is the least thing we can do after we have succumbed to a never quenching mind thirst for more, while forgetting that we are, beyond all, physical living beings that Live  and Breathe regardless of what we believe and experience at a mind level. Desire for more, Greed  is the real evil that we have to disintegrate from our core-programming, and we have the support here: Desteni  I Process.

                                                  A softer modality of imperialism exists in the seemingly innocent way we entertain ourselves, an ever expansive desire-driven consumerist empire in the instant-image world where everyone aims to be a star and ignore the reality that implodes in every second of our supersized glamourized lifestyles.

                                                  In cultural studies, media culture refers to the current western capitalist society that emerged and developed from the 20th century, under the influence of mass media.Media culture is associated with consumerism, and in this sense called alternatively “consumer culture.”

                                                  – Jansson, André (2002) The Mediatization of Consumption, Journal of Consumer Culture, March 2002 vol. 2 no. 1 5-31

                                                   

                                                   

                                                  Soft Imperialism by Culture and Media

                                                  The reason why it is important to be aware of  Neo-Colonialism as the deployment of massive consumerist propaganda by Multi National Corporations  is because there is no regulation from government or any other institution that decides ‘what is acceptable to offer’ to people to buy.  This is the ideological imperialism that we have adopted under the name of culture, fashion, music, arts, the  ideas of humanity ‘evolving’ somehow through the changes in images, pictures, artifacts, technologies, internet, audiovisual arts – yet, what we consume is precisely an outflow of an ideological apparatus that leads us to continually seek  have the experiences reproduced in our TV shows, movies, street ads, the ‘values’ that our celebrities represent –  but it is only yet another vulgar display of power wherein we learn to idolize and venerate people that make millions while telling people to ‘be free’ and unlimited’ and ‘seek their own happiness/ follow your dreams!’ and all this positive outlook toward life wherein there is not a single consideration of inducing people to question the system, why not? Because that would simply lead people to stop consuming and actually re-consider what is it that we are really ‘living’ for nowadays, wherein one learns that buying clothes, going to parties, seeking to get high, get drunk every Friday night and then repeat after 24 hours is our idea of freedom.

                                                   

                                                  Our freedom and ‘right to life’ has been sold by our  governments who have become only the ‘executers’ of corporate desires to justify the intervention, subjugation, coercion  and injection of culture and ideology around the globe,  which is also a vital aspect to consider here since that is what is ever present in any country where entertainment is also an export from the United States, becoming part of our dear globalized forms of entertainment in our digital era.

                                                  I would dare to say this is quite a ‘glamorously disguised’ form of imperialism seen as ‘benevolent’ due to its ability to infiltrate and install within individuals an entire ideological  and moral conditioning as a new  engineered lifestyle based on consumerism sold as entertainment – movies, TV series, cartoons, commercials, news networks, advertising and marketing campaigns,  wherein all that we ‘learn’ is to enhance individualism, the sense of specialness and personal enhancement through acquiring products that make us feel like the stars on TV, create a general ‘good feeling’ about what we see and that makes us feel like we want to have the same clothes, hair, looks, attitude, perspective about life and in general, have a Lot of money to buy all of that and more.

                                                   

                                                  It is also difficult to gauge the level of diffusion or control it, since it mostly exits in the form of websites, audiovisuals that are salable and accessible for a very small amount of money – or non at all -covering the walls and billboards in our cities, on every TV screen and popular media that is accessible even to those that have little to no money in our current societies. The same goes for the actors within such industry such as celebrities, music/musicians, unfortunately arts  that have also become another form of propaganda wherein post-modernism states that ‘anything goes’  and our true art has become only the reflection of our own decadence in terms of lacking any form of common sensical values to promote a self responsible human being; instead we’re shaping our minds and the minds of our children from the moment they are placed in front of a TV as life-long partner wherein we develop our special needs and desires every single day that we don’t realize how we are adopting the way we think, speak and behave from the people on the screen, and we like it.  This is the corporate capitalist principle, the candy given to the kid so that it keeps coming back for more and basing our entire economic, political and social structures in order to feed the profit motive, nothing more and nothing less.

                                                   

                                                  The ideas of a luxurious home, a perfected body image, the ideal attitude that can ‘trump’ everyone else, being always fresh and ready to ‘break the rules and break free,’ get the latest trend clothes, buy the latest car, the biggest house, through the wildest party, consume exorbitant amount of drugs and alcohol and you shall be Free.

                                                   

                                                  What no one realizes is how it is the most Perfect way to maintain individuals occupied with how we look, how we feel about our bodies, each other, our relationships – sex/love – seeking ways to have more money so that we can continue enhancing this image that must be ‘the best’ and most-expensive look to get the most respect and become a celebrity for a day. King for a day, fool for a lifetime of chasing the ideal image that was only ‘ideal’ the moment it became the standard one in our TV screens and magazines.

                                                   

                                                  Our ‘stars’ have become the spokespeople to advocate a society of glamour, grandeur, rebellion, an ‘anything goes’ attitude, of ‘whatevers’ and nevermind the human decay, where great apathy for any social matters is embedded, making it an ‘uncool’ thing to be aware of, no one wants to see misery, to read what people ‘far away’ are going through,  everyone wants to feel good, to be happy and perpetuate the idealized perfection in image and ‘soul,’ learning that guarding your Nation’s security is part of your good deeds to get the most of this life and hopefully get a piece of Heaven to continue avoiding to see the actual hell that is avoided in bubbles of feel good experiences.

                                                   

                                                   

                                                  Solution                                                                

                                                  Letting go of these ingrained images, desires, wants and needs is going to be an arduous job, more so than implementing a single policy at a political level. We are talking about the images, stories, sounds that fill our lives every single day. I can speak from my perspective where music filled my days and how it felt like dying the moment I stopped making of music and the cult of artists an addiction to escape from the world.

                                                   

                                                  We have to support each other to develop enough awareness about everything that we have consumed with no awareness, the reasons we have equated ourselves to the clothes that we wear, the shoes that we use, the way we do our hair, valuing the food according to the cost of it instead of the nutritional aspects of it – valuing friends according to how we look with them instead of developing actual communication skills, valuing a brand over the realization of the people that have no option in life but to be a slave to confection our ‘perfect clothes.’ We all wear sweatshop abuse made in Bangladesh, Vietnam, Cambodia and China,  we cannot possibly  keep ignoring the dark side of our beloved beautiful people where all wealth has been built upon abuse.

                                                   

                                                  We  have to re-evaluate what our media will be used for. We will still have TV shows, fashion, music, movies, etc. and they will in fact play yet another great role in promoting living values that have not been present yet, because no one wants to actually make people re-consider the world, because that would breed a major awakening in our society, destabilizing the feel-good bubbles of our experiences   – however we will have to let artists and media people know about a new set of considerations to be implemented within everything that they do. It will be like a ‘green revolution’ though this won’t only mean caring for the environment, but also the entire way we think, and conceive reality as ourselves, how we treat each other, what they write about in songs, how they present themselves, what they buy, their private wants, needs and desires that will certainly have to be re-evaluated once that wealth in such display is what drives people to seek to make the most money in order to be ‘just like their favorite star.’

                                                  New values that honor life will have to be embodied, written and spoken about  by those that one professed the opposite, that life was all about buying and consuming images that have to be bought and experienced.

                                                   

                                                  The solution will have to be implemented in multiple levels in our society as explained in the blog 317. Equality in Equal Money Capitalism wherein we would have to proceed to use the Media as a means to educate, inculcate the principles of life in equality, giving as you would like to receive, understanding that Life is not an unlimited journey to pursue happiness but a physical expression to learn how to coexist and enjoy oneself and our relationships with others in our families, education, work and general social endeavors that benefit the majority, it is the reinsertion of the communal sense of belonging by physical interaction rather than mind stimulation, it will be the integration of a physical lifestyle that we have been so alienated of by staring at screens endless hours a day. It will be a communal effort to implement living values and expressions that will develop in consequence what is best for all life.

                                                   

                                                   

                                                  Rewards                                                   

                                                  Integrity, dignity, self respect, honor, justice, people that learn to stand equal to who we really are as equals instead of honoring images and starving oneself or over feeding a body that will not be reduced to an image, but will exist as the physical that confirms our existence, we are alive and our actual freedom of choice will exist when we stop feeding our minds with values of ‘who we have to be’ according to values acquired at a global level.

                                                  Life after God, Life after Money as a cult in itself will mean the redesign of life as a living principle, a deliberate act of instigating an interest to become a living example of an honorable being that doesn’t only serve a nation or lives up to perpetuating a perfect self-image, this is about embodying for the first time an actual living acceptance, a consideration of each other as equals and not rivals to compete against in dreams of specialness and glamour – of fastest gadgets, trips, clothes, jewels, cars, houses, giant wardrobes but a single consideration that Life is a physical living act of coexisting wit everyone as equals, Not being any longer a coin-operated consumer bot in the name of happiness.

                                                  The ability to give an end to this soft-imperialistic tactic of the ideal American lifestyle resides within each one of us: honoring life instead of the ego.

                                                  What happens when the laws of Free Market merge with hegemonic Foreign Policies?  A Cultural and Economic Empire that we are so immersed in within and without, that is seemingly impossible to stop the corporate machinery, but it is really only the power of each individual as a collective effort that can achieve this.

                                                  Why do States engage in Neo-Colonialism ?

                                                   

                                                  • 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.

                                                  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.

                                                  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.

                                                  • 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.
