331. What is Best for All in Equal Money Capitalism

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

Problem                                                                 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

 

Solution                                                                

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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


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


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


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


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

Rewards                                                   

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

281.The Benefits of Redefining Rewards in Equality

 

Positive experiences linked to the word reward – are they Really positive in nature?

When looking at the Positive reactions toward Rewards in the point I am walking with in relation to getting rewards for ‘being a good student’ throughout my school years, I begun to associate it with incentives and as such it is supposed to be a motivation factor for the person to continue doing their job in such an effective way which I associated to ‘selling myself’ and as such, losing my ‘honor’ if I would get any reward for doing something that was solely my point of responsibility.

Continuing from:

 

If we have a look at the word reward obviously in itself is a gifting that can be equalized to giving/ receiving in equality – but the problem is when there are hidden agendas and intentions behind such giving that makes it Not unconditional, but openly conditional and with a point of interest that is mostly driven by money, a point of benefit that will be ‘rewarded back’ by the person that originally gives. What are we looking at here? That the giving is not unconditional, but expecting something in return, which is what creates the building blocks of self-interest wherein one will not act from the starting point of self honesty and self responsibility, but always looking forward to ‘get something out of it,’ and this is what I have seen as ‘wrong’ just because of how money currently is earned and how it exists within the world system.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to place a positive charge to the moment of receiving a reward as money from my father because that meant I would be able to buy that which would make me happy such as cd’s and books, and as such, allow myself to create a positive experience in conflict with a negative experience based on what is ‘right’ and what is ‘wrong’ to accept according to the ‘honor’ and ‘dignity’ that I perceive was being violated the moment someone would want to reward me for doing something that I regarded as my responsibility, as well as the morals that I learned in order to be a ‘good humble person.’

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to create an inner conflict of feeling good for desiring money to buy things because of judging the act of buying ‘non indispensable things’ as a luxury, wherein I would constantly realize that ‘not everyone has access to such luxuries’ and as such, feeling guilty for having the ability to earn rewards from doing something that was my responsibility only, and in this rejecting the opportunity to have a cool moment of enjoyment with my rewards, going into an ‘I don’t deserve it’ mode due to linking this reward point to a discrimination, because not everyone could have equal access to the rewards I would get.

 

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to generate a positive experience toward the idea of ‘what I can buy with rewards’ wherein the word reward became only a synonym of money/ buying, which is then why I have tainted the word with such a limited spectrum of definition, because of me being the only one that created this construct of  rewards = consuming something that will make you happy, which proves to what extent we have diminished our ability to understand giving and receiving in a world where happiness is linked to money and buying.

 

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to link rewards to a positive experience that I would not allow myself to experience because of thinking and believing that me enjoying something at the expense of money was ‘wrong,’ without realizing that this only existed because of how our current monetary system exists and within that, creating a general denial toward money and creating a rift of my relationship to money because of no wanting to be a ‘self-interested person,’ without realizing how within this I further separated myself from money without fully understanding it, and as such it is only now that we can establish a solution through and with using money to create a system that works for everyone equally, that I realize how I was in fact only denying a point of enjoyment due to such enjoyment being bought with/ by money.

 

I realize that it is thus my own responsibility for creating a point of desiring rewards but at the same judging them because I never considered the giving and receiving aspect that can be possible in this world if we all agree to stop making of rewards another ‘hook’ to keep one moving oneself or buying a certain product and as such, creating a consumerist loyalty for the benefit it represents.

 

Here I also have the aspect of being rewarded for being a loyal costumer.  Within this I realized that there are no Real ‘Positive Experiences’ because they in fact stem from the negative aspect as any energy for that matter that is  used as a ‘bait’ to keep the person going/ buying – the point thus is conditional movement.

 

 

Within this, such aspect would also bother me, because then I would thinkmy responsibility and achievements are now being rewarded as if I required something to motivate me outside of myself to keep doing what I do, the way that I do it’ and as I’ve mentioned, taking a point of pride to refuse these ‘positive incentives’ to make it clear that ‘I do not require rewards to move myself.’ However, in the end, I would accept them and enjoy what I would be able to buy with such money – such as cd’s, books mostly which is something that we should all have access to through a giving and receiving wherein through giving it is not to expect something in return, but to realize that it is our right to be able to enjoy what is existent here the same way that we contribute to the functionality of the system that enables such rights and benefits. This means that: if I remove the pride/ ego/ superiority aspect of ‘I do not require rewards to motivate me’ – I would accept and allow myself to receive such reward as a gift, as an equal giving and receiving without making a problem out of it according to morals and personality.

 

If we look at the money aspect,  the corporations/ companies/ businesses that provide rewards to their ‘faithful costumers’ are using such gifts to ensure that they have a returning costumer to such an extent that we create a bond/ affiliation with certain brand/ store / business and eventually becomes part of our identity: what we consume and our rewards for consuming it creates our ‘trust bonds’ which is the very-limited understanding of rewards I had existent as part of my understanding within this word, for the most part only linked to money and buying. In this ‘reward giving’ of the corporations/ businesses, they get the profit back through you being a continuous loyal customer, you get your product, and everyone’s happy – apparently. But what happens when such profit is only earned by the ‘heads’ of the corporation while you have an ‘army’ of laborers that earn very little to actually create / produce/ manufacture the produce one is consuming, and hardly see any of that ‘loyal consumer profit’ hitting their pocket? Well, then the whole reward apparatus to get more profit entails a point of abuse because what is earned is not equally distributed, and the only reason for giving rewards is to maintain a certain market due to the competition that we currently have of  different  brands/ companies, constantly pushing themselves to get the most costumers for their own benefit and reward – this is how growth and development of a corporation is rather abusive as well.

 

What does all of this entail? Deception, having to lie  and corrupt each other in order to ‘lure’ ourselves to do something/ consume something, which is all based on the self interest of wanting to ‘get the most,’ be the one that ‘wins’ and become ‘successful’ according to the standards that we’ve allowed to exist in the current system configuration, wherein only a few can enjoy the pleasures of having a great amount of money.This is what ‘turns me down’ about rewards and why I turned ‘against the system,’ because of identifying how our human relationships have turned into a point of convenience and self-interest to win ‘above all’

It all became just another self-interest/ greed game of fixed casino jackpots and within that, we accepted and allowed ourselves to found our lives upon abuse.  Within this starting point, no matter how ‘great’/ positive/ beneficial something may sound like, it would always entail a form of abuse, as it currently works in our world system where there is No actual positivity in the rewards obtained, simply because: as long as one single being is not getting such rewards = we are missing one part of the equation and such reward is an elitist benefit upon those that have none.

 

 

 

  • Redefining Rewards

 

We can learn how to give and receive through supporting and honoring each other within the understanding and acceptance of our equal right to live in dignity, a point of having equal rights and equal responsibilities. We can build this way a real integrity wherein we will act based on principles and understanding of a physical giving and receiving as a way of relating ourselves to each other: in and out just as we breathe, inhaling and exhaling as a constant symbiotic relationship that makes our lives possible. Within this, rewards is a gifting and an outcome of giving – a physical movement consideration instead of it being a mind-driven deception.

 

And rewards does not only extend to the point of being ‘directly receiving’ something tangible, it is also the reward of living in a common sensical and principle based society and government wherein all record keeping, all our laws and decisions made that affect the whole would be visible to all, and voted by all as a real democracy and as such, realize that we are the ones that have the power to decide how we live our lives. We have to develop a sense of Neighborism to the extent of truly ‘loving thy neighbor as thyself’ and as such, create a network of relationships as a world system of actual care –  

This is thus why and how  there can be no actual ‘success’ and ‘real rewards’ in the self-honest meaning of the word in a world-system wherein for some to have such rewards, others are left without any form of money to  live, and here is thus quite clear how we can only truly be free from such deception, corruption and bigotry of rewards/ building up a positive consumerist profiles when there is no longer competition between companies/ corporations to lure the most clientele to their businesses, there is no more need to give incentives in means of maintaining something/ someone in a ‘preferred’ position, because it means ‘winning’ over others; one will not require a positive energetic experience of expecting to be rewarded, but one will learn to act by/ as principle, to follow an actual behavioral code wherein the only principle that will guide it is what’s best for all – no more personality play-outs of superiority/ inferiority, but focusing on the physical enjoyment and retribution that we can give to ourselves as a recognition point of being equally working to create and maintain a functional system that’s best for all, which gives us equal rights to enjoy and have fun.

 

All of this will be possible within the implementation of the Equal Money Capitalism, the biggest reward would be to see no human being suffering hunger, poverty, disease, war, abuse, violence, mental diseases, drug addictions and everything that we can currently understand have become our self-annihilation activities that have stemmed from each one of us abdicating our point of responsibility to create a world that we are truly proud and happy to live in. This enables me to then embrace words such as joy, happiness and pride for contributing and working for a system wherein we will learn to live caring for each other, as a real intention without any hidden agendas.

 

All of this entails a radical change in our Human Mind, it requires Self Honesty to develop common sense wherein we understand that the biggest reward we can get is not money/ objects/ luxury and any other form of ‘pleasure’ that comes and goes in one moment, but the satisfaction of being able to wake up every single day in a world that you Really want to live in, in a world where your life will no longer be subject to earning money to live, but instead changing the equation of working to be rewarded with life back in an unconditional way, never again having the access to resources denied or abused/hoarded only by some – this is how I have envisioned that we will truly and openly live the word Reward in Self-Honesty, a complete renewal of the relationships we’ve built with each other, changing them from a point of convenience, abuse, neglect, parasitism, greed and desperate need to physical interdependence, cooperation, equal support and consideration of all bodies of existence being able to live in dignity as equals.

 

The best reward is establishing  Equal Money Capitalism:

“where the Capital is Life/physical resources and All Profit within/as being given an equal and one opportunity to practical physical survival/living in this physical existence; and the Humans manage/live this system through their contribution to making this system work not only for themselves, but for all” – Sunette Spies
