320. Economic Power in Equal Money Capitalism

It is a blatant imaginary system imposed onto physical reality, that’s what money is: a mind creation that represents the relationships of power and abuse that we created in order to have more than others, and use others to do the work for ourselves. This is a mind problem that has become our current economic system backed up by the necessary political powers to make it ‘real,’ when it is absolutely not so. It is our creation, and it is our responsibility.

Problem                                                                             

What is economic power?

The power wielded by a businessmen is the power to create wealth through production, and trade. In regards to trade in a free market, a businessmen can only entice you to do his bidding, by offering you something that you judge to be of equal or greater value in return as judged of your own free-will. His power is the power of persuasion: the power to appeal to one’s mind. Such power is derived by creating value–such as when Bill Gates (Microsoft) creates better products at lower prices. The businessman’s spiritual tool is the mind–and its material counterpart–is the dollar.

A fundamental building block in our consciousness is the notion of and belief of power endowed to money and the ‘benefits’ that come with it, which makes of money and end in itself and with this, Power became a disease in the human mind wherein our ‘creative powers’ have built an entire fixed system where by ‘the way the system works’ we justify  abuse, control, subjugation  and the ability to decide upon others according to and directly proportional to the amount of wealth/ economic power individuals have, created by the necessary deceptive means as implied in the quote above.

I quote Bernard Poolman:

 

“There is No Morality. There is No Self Honesty. There’s No Consideration. There can be No Trust. You have No Integrity. There Can be No Integrity with the Current System. You Cannot Live within the System, with Integrity. It is Not Possible. You Have to Change it to What is Best for All, but…Will you? Not Really, because – you Can’t: “you’ll ‘Lose too much’”, you See – because you’re already Possessed too much. That’s the Demon within you – your Possessions: “I am Possessed by what I have, I can’t give it up – therefore, I can’t Share, I can’t Give as I would like to Receive, because I already HAVE.” – Encryption, encryption, encryption…Backchat, backchat, backchat – Self-Righteous, Justified.”

 

  • This belief and justification of such Economic Power decides who stands at the top of the pyramid, who lives and who dies, who must live a life enslaved to a job to ‘make enough money to go by’ and who will be more focused on how to capitalize such wealth, which is in essence the disease of greed and power.

 

  • Money was created to fix a very simple problem: how to create a medium of exchange that could give a value to two or more different things that were going to be traded, which is also entailing the requirement for a unit of account. Money is a convenient tool to exchange goods and services in a common unit.  The exchange rate came into the picture later on, which is in itself a relationship of Power between Nations and ‘monetary authorities,’ which is the hegemonic structure where abuse was installed.

 

  • It is a Store of Value which enabled individuals to convert perishables into more durable goods – right, but it became a lot more than this since the amount of ‘durability’ that wealth has is more than just a mere practical form to secure your earnings, it has become an addiction in itself where earning more, having more, wanting more has overruled any form of common sense in an individual that ‘tastes the glory of power’ and becomes entrenched with the right of ‘pursuing happiness’ to do so, which is openly acceptable in our dog-eat-dog capitalist ideology and world.  So ‘Storing Value’ as money transformed into ourselves becoming and embodying such Amount of money that we have and call it ‘our wealth,’ our ‘power’ and justify it as our Lifestyle and Right to Be Happy.

 

  • These are the very basic functions you’ll find Money exists for – so, how was it become our God  and who has decided that only a few could really enjoy the ‘powers’ of it when having more than enough to do those basic trading operations? Well, it became a way to Control and Accumulate Money in itself as a form of Power/Control over others, this is through our own accepted and allowed ‘Authorities’ that are able to decide the Value of a currency in comparison to others, which reflects what we currently call our first and third world countries, there’s also the process of fixing prices and the rest has been explained where these regulations provide all the necessary legal means to make the most profit without any form of responsibility toward everyone involved in the creation of such Money as Value that became a Power/wealth in itself for some.

 

  • By becoming a monetary authority, states can manipulate “the Forces” that determine price levels and international capital flows. This is what creates the ever justifiable ‘monetary policy autonomy’ between nations, and this is what moves the world as we know it. A single authoritarian decision to create value systems that benefit some, neglect the majority and is perpetuated through legal means – this is where such ‘Economic Power’ resides, Not the Individual.

 

  • The greater concentration of this power, the better and our hegemonic system flourishes every time that we buy and consume from the Multinational Corporations and Enterprises that have become the real hegemons in our world system. It is this desire for Power that currently sets the ‘regulations’ and policies that are tailored to suit the interests of those that already hold the power, this is thus not a problem of ‘the System’ only, but of Human Nature existing in such cynical manner where No regard toward Life is existent, but we all Feed the machine through our very own desires to also have such power, so there’s no one to blame for other than our very own mind-mechanisms that have created money as a means to abuse in itself.

 

  • The main problem is conceiving this power as ‘good’ and ‘great’ and ‘your right to property, liberty and happiness’ instead of looking at the consequences that such mechanisms are creating in our world. The imposition of currency values as Exchange Rates determine which country dominates another through trade where the motive is self interest and greed, why has there been no motivation to create a single currency? Because there would be no benefit in that, there would be no acceptance from equal currencies to accept another country’s capital to buy cheaper labor to then ship the goods to be sold at a higher price abroad, isn’t it? Slavery, famine, homelessness, debts, lack of health, subordination, immigration, and any other form of abuse and slavery is accepted and allowed by this hegemonic system we’ve all complied to, a single VALUE we believe is real and ‘just’ by the means it was proclaimed to be so.

 

So, how to Equalize this Economic Power within our current system?

 

Solution                                                                             

  • The key begins within the individual realizing that this current system of  abuse called our monetary policies, economic system and the executives behind it must cease to exist as they do now, that implies a reform through political means – democracy is the way to implement a new political and economical system that actually restores to money its very basic functionality of being a medium of exchange, a unit of value and account – and that it serves to enable people to buy goods and services according to the amount of money earned through the labor they support the system with, it is thus a giving and receiving motion wherein there will be no ability to abuse, since Equal Profit share means that no matter what position you are in within the system, you get equal amount of money from the total profit made by the business/ corporation, and the same in any other governmental dependency, charge, service that you give outside of a main organization.

 

  • The Value of Money will be life in itself, no longer someone’s desire to win more in Wall Street or exploiting ‘Free Trade’ in third world countries. It is and will be a functional tool that enables us to distribute life to all people that contribute to participate in the system, co-creating a sustainability that everyone can benefit from.

 

  • One currency would be the most practical of course since our Exchange Rate Regimes are only created out of the relationships of power an inequality that are currently accepted in our world-system. However we will only see how Currency exists –  for further reference on currency, read:  ¿What will be the Currency in an Equal Money System?

 

 

 

Rewards                                                                             

  • The definition of Wealth will be an actual integrity of man willing to give and receive in equality, where money is the meaning of a generosity and appreciation for what we do to maintain and sustain a world system that is supporting each other equally. Appreciation means a-without price-  it is recognizing the value of our own work for the benefit and convenience it provides for us all.

 

  • There will be no more concentration of power since all profit will have to be immediately distributed to everyone in an equal manner. This is the end of corporatocracies, poverty, the elite, wars, imperialism, the have not’s, the middle class and third world countries – everyone will have access to the most dignified manner of living we are able to construct/ build and create for each other, as Equals.

 

  • Any desire for greed or power would be treated as a mental disease which will surely a security measure o ensure no human being is every again wanting to hoard any form of ‘economic power’ in the name of self interest.

311. You Want ‘All The Power’?

 

Power is embedded in the nature of who we are as the Mind, as the actual Evil that abuses the Physical, finding any ways and means possible to get what what we want, what we desire above any consideration and regard for the others that are abused and neglected within such living-out of the word within its current usual definition. We have all collectively created our own worst enemy and nightmare where Power means Manipulation and Control

Continuing from:

We have discussed Power at a System Level as the determining factor that decides how our Rights are created and implemented –or the lack thereof. Rights are a Moral stand point that stem from Power in itself through the following means:

manipulate 
1    exercising unscrupulous control or influence over a person or situation.

2  handle or control with dexterity.
3   examine or treat (a part of the body) by feeling or moving it with the hand.
4  control or influence cleverly or unscrupulously.
5   alter or present (data) so as to mislead.

 

control
n    noun
1    the power to influence people’s behavior or the course of events. The restriction of an activity, tendency, or phenomenon.

 

This means that our current Power is in fact Manipulation to Deceive and Control.

 

Problem:                                                                      

 

Power when embodied by an Authority is accepted and allowed as Real, as Truth, and surprisingly enough we Trust such Power to act in the best interest of all. But as we should have realized by now, Power means control and superiority, the ability to have things done and said the way you want to say it for your own benefit, having the power to decide how all of our lives are conducted when having the ability/power to create laws, set treaties, determine Military Policy, Foreign Economic Policy, Domestic Policy, etc. Which implies that one has the power to regulate the individuals, the State and the System in itself, in essence: have the power to Decide upon people’s lives in all realms of their lives, Our Lives.

 

The dominance in this point is utilized to create Control, Empowerment, Superiority by the people in Power and the Illusion of: ‘Because I can control you, I am In Control of  you’ Which is the paradigm of Manipulation and Deception explained in the following interview by our Designer, which is the existential framework of Authority, Power and Control which implies Manipulation, Deception, Lying, Corruption, Dishonesty.

 

This means that the System Honesty that we have lived in has been based upon ‘following the rules’ of a sovereign, a hegemon that sets such laws/ rules  only to benefit the interests of a minority, never really in fact representing what’s best for all. And this is because of our Relationship to Money, because Power = Money as we have explained, so our entire Power Structure is currently existent within the terms of Manipulation, Control and Deception that we all abide to the moment that we Vote for such power, the moment that we believe in the Power that money has, and comply to perpetuate the same Power System without a question.

 

Power as Self Dishonesty exists within Each One of us where Self-Interest exists at the Sacrifice and Cost of Other Human Beings, maiming and limiting their own ability to have what you/ I have. This is our individual contribution to our current system.

 

Here we have to be absolutely Self-Honest to realize that if we have had the lives of the people in Power, their education, their environment, their conditioning, we would have done exactly the same as they have: seek more power, seek to get more, have more, rule everything and everyone, because ‘they can,’ and this ability is the power we have all collectively agreed upon.

So, now it is to see where in our lives we have accepted and allowed ourselves to embody this desire for Power, Control, Domination, Authority, to have More than others, and for this, resort to lie, deceive, cheat, participate in corruption which is precisely how our lives are currently guided, because who we are as the mind is an entire Lie in itself, there is absolutely No Self-Determination yet, there is no consideration of ‘What’s Best for All’ existent in our thoughts and living decisions, and this is precisely what ‘sets the tone’ of our entire System. It is not to Blame ‘those in power’  – but instead Recognize How we have all collectively participated in manifesting Power as such an abusive mechanism that regulates our lives in every single way.

 

At an Individual and personal level, we create this power-driven inequality the moment we want to posses a person in our relationships, the moment we want to take advantage of our position to have more than what we have, the moment we lie, deceive and manipulate in order to ‘get the most of the cake’ or ascend in our social-status to have more money, not caring who are we directly affecting with such ‘move.’ This is why we haven’t been able to trust each other, because everyone is running after the same bone, and this exists between individuals also in the political spheres, where people are obviously not genuinely determined to serve the people and establish a best for all living condition by writing laws and constitutions that are in fact implemented to better the lives of humans, but instead having a ‘better position’ only means having more money and the ability to write rules and laws that will support and guard such position and power. It is a dog eat dog situation that must stop, because it is unsustainable and it’s ending with the lives of all individuals that see their ability to be supported to live far far away every single day, which is unacceptable.

 

Solution:                                                               

 

Realizing that the Nature of our Own Mind is the one that Creates the Nature of the System will enable us to Stop being the Victims of ‘those in power’ and instead Take Responsibility, individually, for our own nature that seeks to have ‘the most,’ to be ‘on top’ of others and use manipulation and deception in order to attain such desired status. This is all money driven, therefore by us allowing ourselves to be Money-Driven, it is clear that we are not standing within the Principle of What’s Best for All as long as we only look after our own benefit.

 

If we look at the context of Protests and Activism, people seek to ‘Gain the Power back’ but only to then take revenge upon those that held the power before, which will only lead to a ‘turn around’ of the roles with no practical solution. Therefore, we have to realize that the way to stop our current Power Structure is not by ‘overcoming power with ‘greater power,’ but establishing a new political system that can effectively manage the Distribution of Power in Equality, as explained in the previous entries. By this, each individual can realize that we have to unite under one single banner to establish a New Way of Living as Equals- that’s how we are proposing the Equal Money Capitalism System, which one can read about to see how it is a smooth transition from our current system to a more equal and balanced way to establish a social system that is founded upon Life in Equality.

 

Instead of Seeking individual power, we have to set aside all our ambitions, all our desires to ‘make the most’ and realize that if we want to change the world, every single moment wherein we want to possess, have the most, be on top of others, we are abusing and exploiting others, wherein their own ability to have what you pursue is diminish in a direct manner, since the system is set up so that no two individuals are able to possess the same money. This is recreating the same system of Power we’re existing in. This is thus walking through an individual Process of Self-Honesty to see where we are still wanting to have More than others, to be Better, to have Control over others and as such, correct our living application so that manipulation and deception are no longer the means in which we drive our lives toward success, but we start considering that any form of imposition toward another is their enslavement to you. This is why we’re all collectively responsible for our entire system, since we have only complied, but never really taken part of it to actually in fact vote and decide for each policy, law or regulation that is promulgated.

 

 

Rewards:                                                                                                                            

The ability to give and receive in Equality,  in such a non-harmful and harmonious manner will lead to peace on Earth.

Imagine no countries fighting against each other – which means No Wars – but also no rivalry as to who is making more than other, whose resources can be exploited and whose population is now invading another country through immigration, because through Distributing Power to all Equally through Equal profit, we can thus stop worrying about not having money to live, or even more so deciding that we ‘want more’ because that’s what others are able to do. This is a collective way of realizing that everything that we have perpetuated thus far can be corrected by considering each other as Equals, and deciding to give each other the right to life at a system level, this will create a Utopia that we haven’t yet experienced, though it will take this individual realization of how through each one of us stopping the desire for More, the desire to Experience Power at an individual level, we can instead create the immovable certainty and guarantee of being supported within a system where everyone else is being also supported, a real sense of community and cooperation will emerge from this, a state unknown to humanity and yet to be lived which is something I am absolutely looking forward to enjoy.

Power in Equality is recognizing our ability to create a world that can certainly be best for all: what you want and desire you also give your neighbor to.

 

Let’s keep in mind thus this Collective and Individual responsibility within the use of this word ‘Power’ and remember to use it as your ability to Decide, Act and Live in accordance to what is best for you and Everyone Else Equally.
