374. Living Income Guaranteed: the Real Capitalist Revolution

 

Here’s a must watch documentary on how the Pseudo-Socialist Cuba is going through capitalist revolution:

Cuba 2012 (BBC Documentary)

The problem was isolation, pride and a delirium to be able to be self-sustainable in an economy that depended on the Soviet model that also failed because the foundation was not to provide with the Best living conditions for All, but only give the strictly necessary which lead to poverty and an economy that is sustained by the tourism and informal businesses that are busy sprouting now since the latest reforms that open the doors to capitalism have taken place. One country cannot remain secluded from the rest of the world, not even if trying to remain within a so-called model of communism that has only existed as such in theory books.  What has happened to people in Cuba is that they are now happier with the ability to expand the jobs they were able to previously do within the socialist framework. People enjoy the idea of being able to settle in a property they can buy, do new jobs that weren’t previously existent – such as a real state agent, fast food restaurant owners as well as the potential to open up doors to the world in an island that has remain frozen with no real advances in infrastructure for over 60 years now.  Capitalism does make people happy, but as we know there must be some considerations to make of Capitalism a functional and sustainable change within a country and around the world.

 

Solution: a Living Income Guaranteed

We propose Guaranteed Human Rights through a self-sustainable system where all the resources are nationalized, using such profit to create social dividends that are sufficient to cover a Living Income to every individual that does not have a job, can’t work or is/isn’t old and/or educated enough to work. The rest, as it is shown in this documentary is an example of what would happen to the poor and lower middle class around the world with the implementation of the Living Income Guaranteed model, will be able to work in the business they choose to make more money than the one they can get as a beneficiary of the Guaranteed Living Income which will be sufficient to ensure that each individual is granted with money to make our Human Rights effective promoted by the Equal Life Foundation.

Minimum wage should be double the Living Income which means that if people get a Living Income of 15 dollars per hour – in the current understanding of our economy world wide – the minimum wage in any work should be 30 dollars to create the incentive that is necessary for people to educate themselves and go to work in the professional areas that will be required once that the technological advancements will be replacing the tedious human labor by machines that will function under the premise of providing the resources demanded by the people in a particular area of production.

Having a dignified life and going through improvements does make people happier after the limitation they’ve gone through which is what happened in this example of people in Cuba – the same process will proceed when a Living Income gets to those who currently have nothing; from there Education will be necessary, not to preserve a capitalist or socialist ideology or learn how to revere old idols that promoted death as a form of revolution, but an education on living principles, the relationship between individuals to be able to work together, to develop their creativity, language and mathematical skills to place them into application for entrepreneurial endeavors that are directed to improve the living condition of the entire society, as well as generating sufficient profit within a model where everything earned won’t ever be stacked up in a few man’s pockets. Just like the water that falls and evaporates to produce rain and complete the cycle, money as the water cycle will serve its purpose: to ensure that all individuals have the necessary power of acquisition that is accountable as part of public finances to be able to take care of themselves with the best living standard that is possible and sustainable for all – either through the Living Income or through their own endeavors in businesses and using professional skills to improve their lives and earn more money.

No one will be left behind

This is what will change the behavior of the human being: from fear and scarcity, limitation and isolation to social security based on having sufficient money that will be spent on what is necessary to live, without a limitation on ‘what to buy’, which school to attend, what health care service to choose, what kinds of entertainment to consume which will have to be a process of education in itself, since we are so prone to be self-indulgent when having ‘more than the usual’ that it will be also be a process to learn how to measure ourselves. But that will also be understood once there are no more sudden-riches behavioral patterns in consumption and one is supported with proper education and cultural habits to understand what is genuinely necessary to live, how to buy nutritional foods, preventive health measures, resource preservation and much more. We are currently damaging the Earth, the water, the air and the living creatures of the world by continuing to fuel the lives of our so called ‘progress’ as the massive consumption that produces more death than life on Earth.

We take the best of both worlds: capitalism, socialism and any other religious endeavor that has considered that we must elevate our living standard to the best position possible. We are all  Equals and as such learn how to Live as equals where no one leader or dictator will be perpetuated in power, only direct democracy will be the voice that dictates the way that the resources, the education, the businesses, social services, foreign relationships of commerce, media and communications are handled. The new Living System won’t have any precedent, for humanity is tired of the lies, deceit and cronyism that takes place in every system that has had a ruling elite with no integrity or real compassion for the people; our government as the people will be established by the people in a new political platform that is nor red, or blue nor with any precedent in the history of political orders in this world. Each individual will be voting for the best options that will be available to vote on – and if choices are not best for all, there can be no voting process for there would be a flawed outcome as an option to be able to be voted for as majority rule – this is the key to a functional democracy where people are educated on how the the world system operates and we can conduct the presentation of choices/ policy making processes that will always lead to a best for all outcome and never allow each other to have a harmful and abusive decision to be set on the polls to vote on. Ignorance will be eradicated by our own education that will have nothing to do with what we are currently indoctrinating our children in #schools with – this will also have to emerge from individual to individual for there is currently no institutional curricula that covers the essentials required to live in a world in a self-supportive manner which means considering the living principles of taking into consideration each other’s lives being always guaranteed to be supported by the living system we all have to work in and co-create.

For all of this we require to understand that as a collective, as humanity, we can join forces and make us stronger – we cannot afford to continue divided and conquered and if there is a handful of sane people in the world, we realize that the solution is not to give into fear of wars that keep the world paralyzed and stagnant in a fixed economy that will benefit from it, yet that we have all collectively accepted as real.

The solution to prevent World War 3 is to establish the Living Income Guaranteed where every nation goes back to sorting the problems at home, withdraws from any occupied country, dissolves their military and instead of employing people to kill, educate/give capacitation to individuals to educate, heal and teach how to work on the land that provides us food to eat. Countries must stop funding their own imperial endeavors, stopping all military expenses and instead direct their money to provide for the poor, the homeless, the ones lacking proper healthcare and reactivate the economy at home through giving more money to all, developing trade based on real necessity not based on the accumulation of wealth for antique purposes of so-called ‘power.’

The human being is the creator of this system, each one of us and as such we only require to get to an agreement of how to benefit ourselves, to cooperate, to agree on what is best for all based on the sustainability that the Earth provides us with, the same Earth that is worked to get the means to live and produce everything that we see around, that we use for our day to day living –  that’s the real power and we must establish this understanding as part of the overall system and not get ourselves caught up within the perception of us being incapable of changing how  our resources are managed and how profit is distributed at the moment.

#Money will become a tool, mathematical words that translate the meaning of life to be given to each individual as a human rights document, numbers that will be accountable and will grant access and guarantee by constitutional Equality each individual’s living to be the best one possible as a human right, to finally make of our human rights a reality and not just vacuous words that as Bernard Poolman said ‘were not worth the paper they were written on’ due to the lack of enforcement of their application around the globe.

The Living Income Guaranteed is the way to an actual peace between neighbors that would eventually lead to a genuine understanding of what it is to make of love a living word in the form of a living system that ensures no child goes to bed without food in their tummy, that no nation is under fire, that no animals and entire ecosystems are hunted and scavenged to sustain economic fallacies/bubbles that create addictions and abuse of life, but instead we all learn how to respect the Earth, the animals, the very water and soil without which you and I would not be here today breathing.

We first have to learn how to respect ourselves and understand the value of life – that is the real task at hand that we as human beings are endowed with along with the ability to create a mathematical system that can guarantee each individual to have a dignified living to make of human rights living words, a real happiness and real fraternity that is possible if we all agree that what is here as the Earth belongs to us all in Equality.

We all now know that scarcity and the economic crisis have been a performed lie, a manufactured with consent lie that we have all bought and it is now reaching us all until we take a stand to say: Till Here No Further, We Stand Up to establish a Living Economic Model, a mathematical and best for all administration of the resources for the people, by the people and ensure that those that already have more than enough understand that the inflation of their reality will not be continued to be built by the majority that has remained complacent – it is not about ‘the 1%’ only for they are also part of this world, as human beings that will also be benefitted from this living system – each individual, each one of us must take responsibility and realize that the majority rule must not be complacency and fear of changing the status quo. We have been the silent observers of our economic and educational conspiracy, a con-piracy as the lies and deceit that we have all believed to be true that has been used to steal and abuse one another with legal consent, the accepted and allowed crime against life is to believe that one is entitled by some ‘benevolent force’ to have More than another and leave others without any. All forms of disparity have been our point of self-dishonesty and as such we can only learn how to forgive ourselves for such separation and establish corrections to ensure we never accept it and allow it again.

The new laws to be lived by each individual are: Oneness and Equality practically understood as realization of each one of us being equally endowed with the gift of life, where we will live by the principles of Giving as You would like to receive, Do onto others as you would like to be done onto, Loving thy Neighbor as Thyself and through practicing these individual principles in a system that will be founded upon them as well, we will establish the real meaning of life which is nothing else but learning how to Live as Equals and for the first time genuinely call our lives a dignified living.

324. Democracy and Equal Money Capitalism

The only power that is acceptable is that of each individual voting on a One Man, One Vote basis, Direct Democracy is the 99% that can Decide what’s Best for All – including the 1%  that will have to learn how to love thy neighbor as themselves in Equality.

Problem                                                                 

, From capitalism.org:

What is the relation of Capitalism to democratic principles?

Pure democracy is collectivist mob-rule .

Under capitalism no individual, nor any group of individuals, whether they be a minority or a majority, can violate the inalienable rights of any other minority, including the most oppressed minority that has ever existed — the individual.

Capitalism limits the democracy — the majority of the moment — to a useful purpose: the electing of various individuals to various positions of public office. Other then this limited aspect, the power of the majority is severely limited. Capitalism in this sense only supports a limited “democracy”, but not a pure unlimited one.

In the sense, commonly used, that democracy means egalitarianism — the equality of results (wealth), by an unequal protection (violation) of rights — capitalism is entirely opposed to it.

  http://capitalism.org/category/democracy/

 

  • If there is an abusive use of the concept of democracy is the one quoted above, and it’s within the capitalist framework that Democracy is able to be sold,  becoming an Inverted Totalitarianism wherein the Political power is subdued to Economic Powers, which is the pursuit of corporate interests through legal means created by the politicians themselves, it is the worst type of ‘regime’ we have wherein both factions are against the people, but we all have complied to this through delegating our responsibility through a representative vote, and it is obvious that such ‘individuals elected for specific positions’  are both actors within the government and corporations, as if their positions were interchangeable. Even if the majority of Congress in a Representative Democracy as the United States votes No to a law that proposes the necessary deregulation of banking systems, there is always a plan B that ensures that their policies are pushed at the level of threats until greed, the acceptance of bribes and the concentration of power wins over the decision of the majority.

 

  • It is in fact the rule of the mob that happens in a Representative Democracy where for example, Corporations/ Banks are being bailed out while people are evicted out of their homes without any form of compassion, all of it a product of a profitable banking system that we are all participants of through using Money and complying to the system ‘as is’ without questioning our ability to change it. Our ‘Power’ is reduced to an electoral charade with different faces and colors that protect the interests of that 1% to push the necessary measures for further control and dominion:  removing the political power of the population and implementing laws wherein a few can decide how the economy and judicial system in a country will follow through, and that is not considering at all what’s best for all.

 

  • We’re living in a Plutonomy which is the perfect term to describe how the wealthy dictate the laws. The population is relegated to exercise a fixed right to ‘vote,’ yet it is an absolute fallacy with no change at all, where great proposals for Change are spoken and promised, it’s only new faces, a different color yet reality remains exactly the same or worse, because it is not the people that is being looked after, it is the interests of a minority – Why does the Government accept this? A great share of funds is obtained by each member of the congress that supports the necessary laws that benefit the few and abuse the majority, it is about greed for power wherein both sides are on the same coin that only seeks to capitalize itself and have people believing that they have in fact any say upon the decisions that drive our day to day living.

 

  • Collectivism in Capitalism is feared because the most prominent threat to a Plutonomy is a society asking for a more equitable share of the profit.

 

 

Solution                                                               

  • Direct Democracy, One Man, One Vote, this is the only way in which the Equal Voting Power promulgated at a Constitutional Level will ensure that any form of plutocracy ends, this implies taking money out of the equation through an immediate proposal to implement the Equal Profit Share to begin the redistribution of wealth, so that each individual is empowered to decide at an equal level what is in fact the best way to direct our living conditions

 

Constitutional Equality

The fundamental point of Life on Earth within a democracy is going to be protected by a Constitution of what is Best for All. Any policy, law or rule must therefore be made within the framework of Constitutional Equality and be aligned to the Principle of What is Best for All.

http://equalmoney.org/wiki/Politics#Constitutional_Equality

 

Voting on Policies
Each individual will be given access to a computer and internet, giving each one the required resources to participate in the political decision-making process. In terms of the voting, it’s not as much a voting system as it is that you are agreeing that the way the particular policy has been put together and the outcome are in fact Best for All. So, you’re not voting on something because you ‘like it’ or you ‘dislike it’ – you agree that it is best for all or not best. As such, it is a completely different approach to voting and Democracy – where the Principle becomes that you have a say as long as you back it up with evidence. You can’t just say ‘I don’t like it’; you have to prove that your ‘dislike’ is based on the fact that there is inequality within the equation.

 

Voting in an Equal Money System is not a matter of requirement, but a matter of responsibility. For society to function in a way that is Best for All, participation, contribution and understanding on an individual level are essential. Each one’s participation or non-participation affects everyone else – and as such, everyone is equally responsible for the results of the participation and non-participation

.http://equalmoney.org/wiki/Politics#Voting_on_Policies

 

  • Direct Democracy as One Man, One Vote will be the solution to ensure that the 1% of the Population is finally lead to distribute wealth equally between all workers and participants in the corporations, banks which will be transformed into public services where the only profit formed is not through creating Money, but through serving labor hours to give a service to the people, which should have always been profit-less and a matter of administration other than making business with their ability to print money – both at a banking system level and government.

 

  • At a political level, Direct Democracies won’t ever fight each other, they won’t go to war because there will be no need to create influence or dominion over another.

 

  • The majority of the population will be involved in electing a new political administration that implements the Principle of Equality at all levels in the system. It won’t only be a People’s choice but a principle that will regulate all our relationships that will include those that are currently in power. It won’t be an opposition, a fight or a takeover of the government through violent means, it will be through democratic means, wherein the executive ‘powers’ won’t have such mob rule any longer, but will in fact be an overseer of people’s decision and will be in charge of executing the necessary implementations and laws for the benefit of the people and by the people.

 

  • Constitutional Equality will ensure that every single aspect of our lives is regulated to determine the best outcomes for all in Equality.

 

  • There will be no Leadership positions, since the majority is the one that decides, there will be political representatives that have no more power than any other citizen to implement a certain law or regulation, it is merely a supervision required to ensure that all processes are implemented in a sound manner.

 

 

Rewards                                                                

  • A Society living within the realization that their ability to decide what’s best for all is being implemented to all people equally will create at last a human being that is empowered, that develops a respect for each member of society where no competition or rivalry exists between individuals and nations.

 

  • No more wars since there is no need nor the ability and/or political power to wage war and attempt to conquer other democracies

 

  • International Integration: Communication, Neighborism, the Power of Communities, Unions and Nations will ensue once that there is an ability to put down the iron fists and instead create coalitions for the benefit of the population, without having ‘power’ as an obstacle to not do so.

 

  • Trading Alliances will be a point of convenience, not a means to obtain cheap labor or a new market for profitable goods and services, it is the meaning of a capitalist peace where interdependence is recognized at all times, as well as people’s interests wherein labor, extraction of goods will be regulated under the same economic principles of respecting and honoring life.

 

  • Accountable leaders: this could be you or me and anyone that is interested in taking such a responsibility to ensure that everyone’s decisions are being implemented at a political level. It will be a democracy unlike any other one before, since there will be no ‘leaders’ that have the ultimate say, it will always be deciding to do what’s best for all, being open for dialogue and ensuring that the words written in constitutions and laws are able to be understood and implemented equal and one to the meaning of the words, no more encrypted laws or fine prints to abuse others.

  • Common interests will emerge to develop, integrate, socialize and mobilize to better our communal living conditions, this is the key to ensure conviviality and equilateral relationships between individuals and nations. In essence a new humanity that will learn how to cooperate and give to each other as we would like to give to ourselves.
