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.

318. Government in Equal Money Capitalism

Why has no Government ever been based on Equality ensuring that the Right to Life and Managing Responsibilities  of all individuals is in fact a guaranteed from birth to death?

How is it that no Government has identified the right to have more wealth than others as a violation to basic human rights when someone’s wealth implies someone’s lack?

Continuing from:

307. CapitalismUS: Pursuit of Happiness

 

Problem                                                                             


What is the purpose of government under capitalism?

It is to protect rights that governments are instituted. A proper government’s only responsibility is to protect the rights of the individual, by banning the initiation of force, thus making all relations between men peaceful, i.e., free from the threat of violence and fraud.

http://capitalism.org/category/government/

 

The fact is that the government is not the one actually ruling how things actually work in reality, that’s why we are essentially blaming and voting for mere characters with certain traits that may resonate with your ‘liberal’ or ‘conservative’ side, which is nothing but tradition and culture in the shape of family preferences transferred from generation to generation within the belief that your right to vote and decide ‘who’ governs us is the highest civil responsibility you’ll ever hold – it is a fallacy, all of it, and this is one of the reasons we can all agree that we have been disenchanted from believing that our government truly cares for us. But,  we haven’t even considered what is dead obvious now, which is that it has actually never done so, otherwise we would not be subsumed in the worst type of crisis since the invention of the stock markets and banks as institutions with federal powers to create money as they will.

 

No matter what the name of the regime is, no current formally known ‘democracy’ or ‘autocracy’ exists, because corporations are the ones holding the power by legal means which some have labeled ‘Corporatocracy’ or Capitalism turned into a Corporate Imperialism which is in fact the reigning power of the Anonymity for purposes of liability in our economic system, wherein, without the government’s regulation,  no physical person is in fact being held accountable for the crimes against humanity and the Earth’s Resources, Flora and Fauna that are being conducted under the fictional entity mask that a Corporation represents. They are pursuing their own right to happiness, which means making profit in whichever way and means they can, which is the purpose of the organism in itself – this is where Money is valued Upon Life.

 

Without governmental intervention according to in fact guarding people’s rights, there is obvious abuse, and this is what we are witnessing in this world wherein governments have no say upon a corporation’s interests to usurp people’s properties with the license of being a bank, or water resources under the banner of free trade or hire slave labor overseas which can be excused with some honorable means such as ‘providing jobs in the third world’ or bringing some freedom and democracy to workers that are paid cents an hour for items that will be sold thousand times more in the first world.

The question is: why are we still holding such high standards about choosing a government when there is clearly no defense and protection to basic living rights, nor any real accounting system for each other’s responsibility? Because even taxes are not equally demanded  and all those great subsidies given to corporations to come and do business in our territories is like building a trench for the enemy to come and kill our people and thanking them for such glorious act.

 

A president does not determine the distribution of goods and services and has limited to no-control over monetary policy, price policy and apparently to some extent the bill of employment – yes we all hear our presidents promising to ‘generate jobs’ to no avail – but as we know and in the example we’re studying here as CapitalismUS as the representation of a Corporate Capitalistic System, these are all interests controlled by ‘The Federal Reserve’ which is an organism that is supposed to be serving both gods, the public/government and the private/corporate sector, apparently the role of the Government is to ‘oversee’ and regulate the private sector’s activities, which we can all attest to, is not happening at all. This is the key-organism wherein magic takes place, wherein money is then brewed and stored according to the corporation’s interests and governments are being bribed to sponsor that or even bail them out with public taxes.

Suggest to watch:

 

  • In the previous entries of this blog, we’ve walked through the mechanisms in which Rights are currently being violated by the same laws that we are currently governed by, which is corporate law that makes our current capitalism a rapacious legal act that we are all complying to, and having apparently no means to stop because that would in fact mean we have to Stop ourselves as individuals from accepting and allowing the current system as is:

 

    • “We have created the corporation – and it’s regulated in our law that the main purpose of the corporation is to profit; how can we then in anyway blame the corporations for destroying our world? I mean – we have created them! The corporation is but a dead carcass – a corpus – that we’ve fueled with our money and sent on a rampage in this world to make even more money. As such – no one can stop the corporations – because the corporations are driven by our laws, and are created through political decisions – and funded by the normal guy that saves his pension in some type of a stock (stuck?); as such no activism in the world will stop this beast as the corporation – because the corporation is us in-fact.”
      –  Day 5: The Corpus Of Terror Law’s Journey To Life 

 

  • It is in fact so that a corporation means an artificial body for judiciary means that represents our real current government, because the government in fact has no real regulation on the Economy due to its  – read rigged –“unpredictability.” The government is more suited to go to wage war, find the right excuses to promote liberty and democracy oversees, hoard other country’s resources and have an extensive Foreign Policy than guarding their own Country’s well being – yes, this is about America specifically wherein it is infamous that there’s so many ‘prestigious’ economic schools there and none of them – or around the world – has ever developed a political and economic model that works for every single person equally.

 

  • Who or what is in fact ‘in power’ nowadays? It should be a mandatory point to understand that it is not the government, not the congress, not your basic constitutions that proclaim all men are equal, but the Corporations that exercise bribery with politicians that can’t serve both gods, money or the people, money wins and people as the majority are the ones that suffer from such greed, because they’ll accordingly generate the necessary Laws to benefit the Corporations’ interests and promote ideals of Progress and ‘Job Creation’ but never specifying at the expense of how many lives and what extent of suffering such ‘Right to Life’ in fact implies.

Solution                                                                             

  • The ultimate Power that will ever Exist is always Equality, Equal Distribution of Power which means that the Government won’t be an all mighty entity that decides for the people – no. It will be an organism to regulate, administrate, oversee and ensure  that the best ways to achieve collective goals for the benefit of the majority are implemented  for the people and by the people. We will explore further on this point when getting to Democracy.
  • Each individual will have to become a political actor in terms of deciding what are the best ways to ensure that our rights and responsibilities are properly administrated. Within this as a Current solution: All of us that have enough resources and education to promote this information must ensure that it reaches to the majority of the people, that it is understood to what level such delegation of power to our government-and ultimately to corporations- is in fact our own self-created demise due to abdicating our political responsibility, violated currently not by a single organism, but by every one of us collectively accepting our current governments, corporations and institutions to guard our best interests on a shelf while creating laws that benefit the minority.
  • This means that it is each individual’s responsibility to ensure that a new Political force stems from the realization that: we can only Thrive in Equality, we can only collectively ensure we never again leave our lives at the hands of a few individuals that are Not caring about Life, but only profit/ money/ power and generating More wealth at the expense of the actual worker and laborer that is generating such profit for a ghastly minority that benefits from it.

 

  • The Government as an administrative force by legal means endowed by every person through democratic means will ensure that policies like Equal Profit Share is implemented as a way to cap the current ongoing monstrous imperialistic expansion that corporations are deploying, it is the power of the individual collectively associated as a pacific force through legal and political means that can and Must decide what are the best interests of the populace, our interests, our lives.

Watch:

Wealth Inequality in America

 

  • So, if our Right to Life is currently defined by the amount of money we have, but Money is not available for every person in Equality, then once again looking at the definition of ‘Government’ within the context of Capitalism  as written in the Problem section, the Government’s Responsibility would be to in fact protect this right to have a dignified living by regulating the processes that private and public businesses and corporations  have

  • ROLE OF GOVERNMENT
    The government will still play a role to provide everyone with their basic human rights such as healthcare, education, housing, sanitation, roads, employment etc. So – the government will fund these points through taxes. The only tax that will exist are the value-added tax on products – this will be part of the labeling of products – where it’ll show the percentage of the price that goes to tax and for what the tax will be used. There will be no need for an income tax to redistribute income in a fair way – because income will be distributed fairly from the get-go.

     

    UNEMPLOYMENT / FULL EMPLOYMENT
    If unemployment exists – the government must step in to create jobs where possible – because employment is a basic human right.

     

    OVERSIGHT IN EMC
    Within EMC the principle will be that everything is to work in harmony with each other. Therefore – dependent on which level a point of disharmony occurs, it will be addressed accordingly. If there is a worker within a company that is not acting in a way that is best for the company as a whole – this point will be addressed by a tribunal within the company. If it is an entire company that is behaving in a disharmonious way – it will be addressed by government departments.
