377. What is a Real Democracy?

“…for men change their rulers willingly, hoping to better themselves, and this hope induces them to take up arms against him who rules: wherein they are deceived, because they afterwards find by experience they have gone from bad to worse. This follows also on another natural and common necessity, which always causes a new prince to burden those who have submitted to him with his soldiery and with infinite other hardships which he must put upon his new acquisition.” – Niccolò Machiavelli

 

How many times have we criticized a politician or a person in any place of authority for not ‘sticking to their word’ and breaking whichever promise or commitment they said they would live out and apply under their rule as the representation of the people? Many times, in fact it has become the way to present the idea that we are ‘wise enough’ to understand that ‘we are being duped’ and how this is all ‘being done unto us’ without realizing that in this victimized state one establishes the immediate denial of self-responsibility and inverts it into a point of blame as if they had some godly powers to solve this reality’s problems, which are in fact created individually by each one of us.

 

See how we have conferred and justified this gigantic responsibility of solving the world’s problems to a few individuals that we believe that we are doing a favor to by voting for them to take a position of god/authority over everything and everyone in a particular nation or institution. Within this, we believe that anything that they do wrong is then a point of abuse and we have the right to despise and ask them to ‘pay for their crimes against humanity.’ essentially going from the initial ‘love’ as expectations of change, progress and honesty to ‘hate’ as the disillusion and disappointment that emerges when something or someone doesn’t meet our expectations – but:

Why and How are we expecting, waiting, wanting others to do the work that we all should do as a matter of self-integrity and responsibility?

 

Unless we understand this, we will continue ‘fighting the powers that be’ and believing that ‘a change of powers’ is what’s required in this world, instead of realizing that the way to dissolve any form of abuse is to dissolve the illusion of such power and its structural legitimized form through only voting in ‘democratic elections’ to choose our leaders, without even questioning why such positions in society exist.

 

Affirmations

 

Continuing from:

 

Self Forgiveness

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to ever criticize, denigrate, point fingers at and call the people that are in positions of ‘power’ out as in governments or corporations, heads of institutions for not ‘sticking to their word’ and their oath to contribute to everyone’s well being, without realizing that the sheer contract they are signing up for as a ‘position of power’ is already in itself an imposition of a position that creates abuse – because for some to be ‘on top’ some must be ‘below’ – and as such a public consent and permission to rule over others, which is in itself a violation of the law of life in equality since there can be no ‘higher ranks’ in the physicality that we all exist as in reality, there is no ‘hierarchy’ within who we are as human beings of flesh and bones and as such, all of the formation of the hierarchical structures exists only within who we are and have become in and as the mind

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to point fingers at, criticize, blame, denigrate or call names to the people in ‘power’ that didn’t stick to their promises through for example a political campaign and in fact end up doing the exact opposite of what they had promised, not realizing that the position of power in itself is deception and a point of abuse with public consent, and how once the contract is signed, the position of allowing one individual to have the ultimate say upon millions of lives while being a collectively accepted delusion that we have only learned how to complain about, instead of realizing that for genuine change in this world, we have to stop ceasing to exist within the belief that we can only progress as humanity if we have a good president/ good people in authority and within that, confiding our self responsibility to one/a few individuals

I realize that the solutions to the problems we face are the outflows of what we have done and/or neglected to do at an individual level.

I realize there is no way in which one or a few individuals can solve the inherent problems within the system that is not only existing as the ‘power structure’ and ‘hierarchical orders’ we have accepted and allowed to exist as ruling powers in our societies, but it is existent within each one of us, individually the moment that we believe that our lives are in the hands of those in governments/positions of power, no different to how we had believed in a god to be taken care of each one of us and delegating all responsibility to a ‘higher power/higher being’ to solve the problems that we individually create and consequent every single day of our lives.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that I have criticized presidents and people in power for ‘not sticking to their promises’ of what they said they would do and in the end didn’t do, without realizing that I have done exactly the same when saying that I will do/say/act on/change something and eventually don’t do it, wherein my situation is then no different to any other ‘person in power’ that one has placed any form of trust and expectancy upon to ‘do the work for us’ as if it was Their responsibility to take care of our own personal lives, which has never been in fact so because it Shouldn’t be that way to begin with.

I realize that the only way that we will be able to properly function as society is when the idea of something or someone having ‘more power’ than the rest ceases to exist, because then we will no longer be able to point fingers at/ blame/ justify our own abdication of responsibility, but will have to actually take care of our own lives, ourselves as it always should have been.

 

I forgive myself that I haven’t accepted and allowed myself to realize that the existence of ‘power’ defined through a hierarchical structure in society is the acceptance of abuse in a legitimate way, because not even through so-called democratic processes can we confer all our responsibility to one single individual we directly vote on, and as such the real meaning of democracy is not understood yet – 

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define and think of Democracy as yet another electoral process only implying ‘one man, one vote’ to get one individual in a position of power as in government/ directive positions of authority, without realizing that Democracy as the actual Power of The People is in fact the individual ability to respond and take care of our own lives in the consideration of what is best for all, wherein ‘power’ only means the ability to move, to direct, to  operate and function as a living organism that we are as society, wherein each one of us becomes one single cell that is equally important and equally relevant within the functioning of the whole as the social organism we are.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself for having ever accepted the idea of any individual being ‘superior’ or ‘inferior’ to myself according to the hierarchical structure that exists at an unconscious level in each one of us, wherein the foundation of our current social, economic and political systems resides, where we haven’t yet realized how these structures exist only for the sake of keeping control through fear,  and allowing ourselves to be directed with the excuse of ‘knowing better’ on how to direct entire populations through politics, economics, education, media – just because we have accepted and allowed ourselves to abdicate our responsibility to our own lives and along with this, be misinformed, uneducated and believe ourselves to be powerless to know how the system operates, to learn the necessary practical knowledge to implement an equally-empowered structural organization in society, because we simply accepted the fact that there were only a few individuals that were meant to be educated in specialized elite schools to become our leaders, and the rest to become followers and as such, having little to no access to the information and support to develop the ability of self-leadership and self-governance.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to ever take a person in power’s position as real and personal, meaning making of the individual an actual evil, bad, mean, greedy, psychopathic person, without realizing that every time that I also do not act according to what I say I would do and live by, every time that I am moved by self interest to satisfy an experience in the mind instead of doing that which supports me as what is best for all, whenever I expect others to take responsibility for what I see is my responsibility to take care of it, I am living out the exact same patterns that any person in any position of power stands in, because we are all human beings and all that is different is the context in which they exist – yet myself at an individual level contributes and represents that one point that makes the nature of this entire system as self-abuse, which is thus reflecting back to ourselves who we really are in our own minds and personal lives.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that some other individuals have to be specialized in understanding how ‘the system operates’ and that I had nothing to do with it, but that one pays them through taxes to ‘do the work’ that we are and have been unable to conduct ourselves, within this using the saying of ‘give as you would like to receive’ in self interest to abdicate self responsibility, giving money  in taxes, giving our ‘vote’ as preference for one or few individuals to do the work that we haven’t realized must be our own individual point of self-responsibility to conduct ourselves by in our lives.

I realize that the equation we have done with money is of the absolute legitimization of corruption and abuse within the existence of money itself, which makes the act of ‘corruption’ just a redundancy that is tacitly implied in the existence of our monetary systems, our value systems and world-system in itself wherein hierarchy as power is no different to the power that we currently have given to money: it only exists as the collective agreement to abuse and have power over reality with no direct reference to physical reality.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that the power of people in ruling and leading classes within our social hierarchical structures was legitimate because of being voted by the people, without realizing that this power is no different to the consent we believe we have given to the creation of money as debt, in essence as a pyramid scheme represented as our hierarchical structure wherein we have always bowed down to those that ‘have more/ are in positions of power’ and within that establishing the acceptance of inferiority and self victimization.

I realize that we have become subject to and trapped in our own beliefs of inferiority and ‘power-lessness’ without seeing and realizing that such power we ‘gave away’ is not real in fact since there is no physical power transferred but in the form of money – currently being a collective acceptance of abuse over life – and in the form of not doing and not taking care of everything that will be ‘taken care of’ by those that we vote for to be doing what we have abdicated ourselves to do.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to justify the ‘ills’ and ‘problems’ in society through saying that ‘it is because of the government/ it’s a systematic problem’ without realizing that this it is in fact what we accept and allow to exist in our own minds individually, which then becomes a problem that is hard to solve by one or a few individuals or an entire political structure, if the individual responsibility within it all is not realized.

 

When and as I see myself denigrating, backchatting, cursing at or having thoughts about what a political or corporate leader is doing as a consequential outflow to ourselves in our society, I stop and I breathe – I realize that each individual human being in this world being in a ‘leadership’ position represents the abdication of our self-responsibility and actual political power as the direction of our own lives that we have neglected to take care of, and as such making it a few individual’s responsibility within a structure of disempowerment as hierarchical orders in society.

I realize that whatever ‘they do’ is only an outflow of the inequality in responsibility that we have created, accepted and allowed in our world – therefore instead of blaming and judging and opposing others, I take the point back to myself and ensure that I begin living by the principles of self-honesty, beginning with actually doing what I say I will do, considering what is best for all at all times and in that seeing that my responsibility to my own life to live in integrity and self-honesty means the foundation of a new society that we can create individual by individual until we realize that we do not require one single individual to be in such a position of ‘power’ and leadership, but instead become the embodiment of self-governance, self-leadership, having the ability to always decide and do what is best for all and as such, no more hierarchical powers to conduct our society will be required, for we will be living the actual ‘power of the people’ as a genuine Democracy that exists at an individual level of living self-responsibility.

 

I commit myself to realize that genuine democracy is not ‘choosing a person to be in office through one man, one vote’ only, realizing that such vote is not merely crossing a paper in election day, but actually becoming a self-responsible individual that understands that each one of us taking responsibility for ourselves creates a genuine democracy as each  individual stands in self-honesty and considering at all times what is best for all.

 

A real democracy is the individual ability to direct oneself in self-responsibility and consideration of equal rights and equal responsibilities,  living together in a way that is best for all. The real ‘power of the people’ cannot be represented, it must be individually and practically lived and applied.

376. What is the Living Income Guaranteed?

 

 Living Income Guaranteed is an economic and political mechanism to ensure the establishment of Fundamental Human Birth Rights of the public through allocating an allowance on a monthly basis to every eligible individual that is currently in a position of being unable to sustain themselves – and/or people in their custody – financially to a level that Human Dignity deserves and that currently lack such support due to reasons beyond their immediate control including – but not limited to – unemployment, lacking access to food, lacking access to housing, lacking access to healthcare, lacking access to education, physical disability, being retired or not old enough to have a job.

This is within the understanding that the existence of poverty and lack of education as the key to have a job and means to live is the result and outflow of the economic system’s malfunction, providing an unfair allocation of National Natural Resources, being unable to support every living individual with sufficient access to fundamental living necessities. The most immediate remedy is to eradicate poverty, through allocating/designating a monthly allowance to those that don’t have access to their fundamental living necessities, thereby empowering them to establish a dignified life, enabling each one to reach their potential, choose a career and contribute to the economy through their skill, labour and purchasing power.

 

Why is it called Living Income instead of Basic Income?

It is called ‘Living Income’ because it won’t only provide each one with the minimum required to survive, it implies sufficient allowance that is able to cover the fundamental expenses required for a dignified living Why? Because this will enable people to reach their creative potential, return to the job market, become independent from the Living Income and contribute to the progression of the economy.

This means that a Living Income Guaranteed should be provided to all individuals that are currently unable to participate in any economic activity due to the lack of jobs/education/health. However those that don’t participate in any economic activity but do have sufficient money to live due to, for example, family wealth, inheritance or any other regular income won’t qualify nor require the Living Income Guaranteed.

 

 

Why is Living Income Guaranteed Not Unconditional?

The reason why it is not given to all people unconditionally is because this would undermine the sustainability of an economic system that does require people to be motivated to educate themselves and work to enable the continuation and functionality of our societies.

 

 

That means that people that work won’t get the Living Income Guaranteed?

That’s right, however we Do propose that the Minimum Wage is Doubled (twice the Living Income Allowance), which means that there will be a series of reforms to take place first to make the Living Income Guaranteed a sufficient Allowance granted to cover fundamental living necessities, which is within the context of our current economy More than our current Minimum Wage standards.

This allowance should be sufficient for an individual to have dignified living conditions with guaranteed access to their fundamental human birth rights: Food, Water, Housing, Healthcare, Education, Clothing, Transportation, Public Services, etc.

Now to motivate people to work, the new minimum wage should be Double the Living Income Guaranteed in the most common economic activities which are at the moment associated with retail workers, waiters, cashiers, transportation workers, fast food industries, etc..

So, anyone that genuinely wants to have a top quality lifestyle will not conform to only getting the minimum as the Living Income, but continue educating themselves, developing further skills to make more money and have more financial solvency.

 

 

What’s in it for the corporations with implementing the Living Income Guaranteed model?

A broader consumer base. Those that previously had no money to live and as such were not economically active will suddenly become active participants in the economy which will ensure that profit is also broadened for corporations, realizing that if more buyers emerge, there will be more profit that can be used to better the working conditions, to diminish the compulsive production and instead adapt the prices to make things affordable, with great quality and providing a secure and harmonious working base, as well as proceeding to fund the automation of jobs that are currently deteriorating human health.

Workers will feel supported and cared for by their employers, which will result in individuals that no longer feel pressured and enforced to only be a profit-making machine, but will feel happy and content to realize that their work is being truly remunerated and that their time and contribution to the corporation is being valued as the life-time investment it actually is. A well remunerated individual will create a happier and fulfilled society that is no longer afraid of not having sufficient money to feed their family, it will be the beginning of a new era of quality work that dignifies the lives of human beings that genuinely desire to improve their lifestyles.

Why is the implementation of a Living Income Guaranteed an immediate solution to the economic crisis?

More than a solution to a crisis, it should be understood as the way to guarantee that the Fundamental Human Rights to each individual are properly funded through allocating an Allowance as the access to the necessary things one requires to live in a dignified way – this is within the principle of Giving to others what we would like to receive, and if we want to live in a peaceful society, to have a happy and healthy living condition, we then must give access to this Allowance/Income as a living certainty that will eradicate the need to resort to crime, panhandling, homelessness, lacking education, health care that results in economical regression affecting every individual in society.

It is common sense that if we give an Allowance to every eligible individual to be well nourished, have proper living conditions with the fundamental necessary services, health care and leisure time, more educated beings will emerge from this when realizing that if one is given support as in getting an income to cover one’s living necessities, one learns how to give back to society too. This will be understood as a living principle that applies to every living being on Earth beyond any political, social, religious or ideological affiliation. We’re talking about physical living necessities that all human beings require to live in a dignified and sustainable way.

On top of this, many jobs are being replaced by the rise of the machine, which will require more restructuring processes in our economy to finally upgrade the premise of being able to ‘make a living by having a job’ because if jobs are currently not available to all – regardless of having college degrees and necessary skills to have one – then it is certain that a new understanding of our economy should be grasped as supportive mechanism for all individuals rather than a restrictive and coercive one.

In the past, long-term policies and treaties have attempted to benefit the working class over time, and it has proven to be inefficient for the tightening policies implemented by corporations as well as the economic outflows have deviated their effectiveness. This is how through a direct intervention to provide the Living Income as an Allowance and doubling of the minimum wage, we are directing the problem at the root, instead of expecting third party actors and policies to solve the situation throughout time.

 

 

Will the Living Income Guaranteed undermine competition and as such create economic stagnation in society?

Not at all, actually it’s the other way around. If we define competition as the ability achieve the best living condition in a society, by allocating Allowance to every eligible individual that previously had no access to it, we assure the activation of the economy and impulse people to work if they do want to have a greater economic solvency to cover other consumer desires for extra commodities that are not able to be paid for with the Living Income Guaranteed. Also, there is no limit to how much money you or corporations can make as long as their businesses do not interfere in any way with the nationalization of natural resources or fundamental public services – that is the condition. That means that the rules of a free market still apply and as such, the only constitutional and governmental management will be to supervise the implementation of the Living Income Guaranteed, as well as conducting the usual maintenance, management and provision of public goods and the justice department.

The more you prepare yourself, the better work you’ll have, the more benefits which means you will earn more money as well. Competition means bettering oneself to perform a certain activity the best way one can and this is an essential part of human nature  that has kept our societies remaining competitive, innovative and creative  at a local and global level.

You will also be able to truly have free choice on which work is best for you instead of engaging in working contracts based on need rather than preference or choice. This is the way to implement a real ethical environment at work too, where no more exploitation occurs since any job won’t be the result of a need to work in order to survive, but rather become a means and incentive to increase the quality of life.

 

 

How will it be funded?

Through the nationalization of resources , banks and basic services which means that if, for example, your oil, gas, water, electricity, telecommunications ,transportation is defined as patrimony of the people, the profit that comes from the consumption/purchase of such goods and services should be sufficient to fund the Living Income Guaranteed for eligible individuals. This means there will be no need to have personal taxation but instead keep the VAT (Value Added Tax) as it is to continue funding the functions of the government – this is also within the consideration that as the purchasing power increases and consumer base broadens, the funds coming from VAT will also increase creating more solvency in governmental budget as well, which translates to higher quality public welfare.

Thus with the Living Income Guaranteed there is one thing that is of vital importance: no one in the system, no citizen will pay tax – all tax will be facilitated by either value added tax or sales tax or import duties. If you have a government system that is responsible because you have a system where each one is functioning effectively within the system, you do not need excessive tax; your tax is spent on things like roadwork, transport facilitation – all things that can be handled ‘in house’.

One of the things that can work quite effectively also in a country is to have a toll tax on the roads which are managed by the government and that keeps the roads in place, so according to the use that one has of a road = will be the amount of tax you pay, but there will be in this proposal no income tax, so nobody is going to pay for anyone’s Living Income Guaranteed, it’s coming from the resource companies which everybody in the country are participating in and your sales tax or your value added tax will be according to the amount of your participation within a particular system – this is a fair way of dealing with government tax collection.

This is how the distribution of wealth and profits is expanded onto those that would have no benefit from the commercialization of natural resources and basic services, and due to the constant consumption and requirement of these, it is ensured that the foundation of the Living Income Guaranteed will always remain sustainable and have sufficient funds to cover the beneficiaries’ expenses.

Another example is how through stopping allocating money to fund wars, the trillions of dollars that are spent in the warfare industry can be designated to revitalize the economy through funding the Living Income Guaranteed and supporting the health care, education, commerce, production industries and basic services that require to be improved at home.

 

 

Will Public Services also be Nationalized?

Health care, education, water, electricity, telecommunications, media, banks will also be nationalized. Each country will have to assess their available resources in order for the government to make sufficient profit to fund the Living Income Guaranteed.

 

 

How can we implement the Living Income Guaranteed?

Through a political proposal, through existing or new political parties that have this mechanism as their key card to gain the majority vote to have our Fundamental Human Rights guaranteed through the Living Income Guaranteed. This means that the right to a Living Income must be granted on a constitutional basis – this is a national-based system constituted at a political level and able to be voted on within a democratic process based on the principle of one man, one vote.

The Starting Point

By Ken Cousens

 

“True Love cannot exist in the presence of Unequal Station”
In this essay we will explore the fundamental context that one must address in order to understand the concepts of Equal Money and Equal Life. This context is summed up in the title of the essay: The Starting Point. Simply stated, it is one’s starting point that will wholly determine whether one can comprehend the concepts of Equal Money and Equal Life, and in that context there are only two starting points that exist, either one starts from the point of self-interest (“What’s in it for ME?”) or one starts from the point of what is best for all (“What’s in it for WE?”). There is no middle ground. If one is starting from the point of self-interest, one cannot get there from here. Every argument and every position rallied against the principles of Equal Money and Equal Life become self-nullifying when the starting point is self-interest. When life is viewed from the subjective position of unequal station, where there is greater and lesser, superior and inferior, more deserving and less deserving, and every variation thereof, then nothing exists except for the self-focused reality of self-interest. Not only is it a fact that true love cannot exist in the presence of unequal station, but nothing exists in the presence of unequal station except the self-absorbed reality of personal agendas, the self-focused litany of arguments ad nauseam that insist it is more important than all of existence, and that rights of birth, station, position, status quo and everything else are there to support the illusions of separation and all of its variants. In simple terms there is only the choice between Life and self, and what those saluting the flag of self have failed to take into account at this stage of planetary evolution is that life has had enough of the abuses of self, and is now taking control, whether that is apparent to the self or not at this moment in time. In time, and the not too distant future, it will become the most self-evident principle on the planet.

 

When the starting point of one’s approach to Equal Money and Equal Life is “What Is Best For All” then the entire universe rearranges itself to make the principles self-evident, as if they always existed as an integrated whole system, a complete interconnected fabric of life and existence that has never been without harmony, balance and equilibrium while still at the same time fully observant with eyes wide open to the horrors of separation and all of its spawn. Such a starting point is not about the lofty abstraction of positivity in ignorance of the realities on this planet, it is simply the firmly established stand that there is only one choice for how money and the systems thereof must ultimately be applied, and that is to do what is best for all. In such context, Life is seen as a fluid continuity that is in communion with all of existence, and every part contains the template of the whole and the whole is seen in every part. In this, the starting point is to stand as Life; to take the stand within and as oneself as Life means that one cannot do anything that is not fundamentally based on the sound principle of what is best for all life in all expressions and all manifestations. Life as what is best for all is based on correspondence, which is simply the ability to respond as the equal and parallel coefficient of every other expression of life, to respond as co-equal to all other forms of life, to nurture every iota of life as one would one’s own breath, and the in breath and out breath of one’s own respiration, as re-spiriting, is the inspiration and out spiration of life as spirit as one and equal to every and all living expressions.

 

When one takes a stand for Life, it is a self-directive state of being that establishes an implacable position that will not be swayed and cannot be persuaded from that position no matter what may come at it. All time and space cannot persuade one so situated to rescind the commitment, and such a stand for Life will inevitably force all of existence to rearrange itself to conform to the intent of such a stand for the principle of what is best for all. To the self-focused and self-interested such a stand is madness and has no logic, because the starting point of such is that if it does not serve self in its self-fulfilling gratification, then it has no meaning and has no value. The self-interested cannot even fathom such a stand for Life because there is no instant gratification and there is therefore no value to such a one.
The self-interested character that resides, in one variation or another, in almost the entire planetary population knows only one principle, so succinctly expressed in the statement “What’s in it for me?” It is like a universal radio station tuned to WIIFM, and the pain, suffering, agony, pleading, misery, torment and convulsions of the world and its population are like distant static that are so effectively tuned out by that finely honed instrument of self-adulation and ego-maniacal madness known as the self, singing blithely “I, Me, Mine…I, Me, Mine…I, Me, Mine….” as the world descends into entropic annihilation. “Are you mad?” proclaims the self-interested adherent when presented with the concept of “The Greater Good” because such a one cannot even begin to understand that there is anything outside of itself worthy of its attention. Their starting point as well as every other point along the timeline of their existence is always and forever centered on self, so such concepts as a global economic and monetary system based on the sanctity of Life, the honoring of all beings and the exaltation of the life force in every plant, animal, human, forest, ocean, river, field and ecosystem cannot be fathomed and never given credence. Conversely, a system in which every action is within dynamic equilibrium with all beings and all existence so that Life itself is forever regenerative, equally manifesting what is best for all beings, reciprocally and mutually beneficial to every form and function, and eternally sustainable, is as natural as the first breath of a new born baby to one that stands for the principles of Equal Money and Equal Life for All.

 

The self-interested starting point can only hear the word “Money” in the phrase “Equal Money” and cannot comprehend that such a word as “equal” has anything to do with money. Money to the self-interested is the beginning, middle and end of all existence. It is not a means to an end, it is the end itself. The self-interested worship at the altar of money and never give it a second thought, never understanding that every dollar that passes through their pockets and accounts is attached to someone, some where, that must service a debt, toil in the fields, labor in the factories and deliver the goods that their self-indulgent lives may be supported and sustained on the blood, sweat and tears of millions whose bones pave the way to an imaginary heaven so that the privileged few might easily enter such a promised land. The self-interested do not even know that the word money itself is derived from the name of an ancient moon goddess (“Mon”) that has woven her lunar spell over countless generations so that their very minds are wrapped and enraptured as nothing less than the lunatic fringe of a world gone mad, driving the teaming masses to commit the unspeakable and heinous acts and assaults on Life now taken for granted as if the end point of this madness is the way it is, the way it has always been and the way it will forever be. Such phrasing as “It’s to Die For” and “I will kill to have that new car” are taken as a given, as natural, as the rallying call of the self-interested, thereby establishing their starting point as death, violence and destruction just to fulfill that one last desire before the closing of the last curtain over the stage of all life, to die for one last pleasure, to kill for that one last prize.

 

Therefore, one must start with the logical question: “What is my starting point?” How does one approach the question of Equal Money as a direct expression and manifestation of an Equal Life for all? Does one, in fact, start from the point of recognizing that every thing in existence is standing as Life itself, for everything has a life force, and that life force is equal in all things. But, you say, rocks do not have life force. To which the proper response is, oh but yes they do. They stand equal as the manifestation of Life in every atom of their substance, that stands equal with magnetism and electrical current that flows throughout their molecular bodies, and from the rocks comes the soil and in the soil exist the teaming masses of microorganisms that are essential for every plant, animal and human to stand in their life as the physical embodiment that they are. When Life is seen from the starting point of an inextricable web of creation that is wholly interdependent on every other living thing, just as the systems of man have created a global system that everyone is completely dependent upon as a quantum whole, then the starting point begins to become clear as that which holds and sustains Life in all things, in all creatures and in all of manifest existence. And every other thing, every seeming inanimate expression of Life, when looked upon in and as part of this inextricable fabric of Life as a quantum whole, can and will be seen, if the starting point is Life as one and equal, as part of the whole, both dependent and interdependent for its life, life force and existence, as standing in oneness and equality with all Life.

 

So what does it mean “to stand” for Life and “to stand” for oneness and equality? It means simply that one chooses as a self-directive principle to make Life and what is best for all as the central point from which all one’s life, actions, thoughts, feelings, emotions and intentions emerge. It means one stands for Life and cannot be moved from that position, as a commitment of one’s being beyond time and space, as a holding point and station that will not ever again accept or allow that which is not best for all or in support of Life. From such a starting point, everything that is not in support of Life, that is not properly founded on life-enhancing principles, shall, as by a force of nature, depart from one’s existence. If one takes that stand resolute and without equivocation, then all of Life and all of nature shall rearrange around oneself in correspondence with that stand; and when two or more stand for and as Life, together as one, Life is here in that co-equal commitment and co-resonant expression and the power and force of that commitment is expanded exponentially. In that stand and starting point, the mind cannot enter, because the mind by design will seek every angle, every perspective and every strategy to find fault in that stand and position. The mind as the starting point is designed to support separation and self-interest, and therefore, if the starting point of approach to the concept of Equal Money is one of the mind expressed as logic, economic models, mathematical equations or any other spawn of the mind, one can never see past the veils of illusion and deceit upon which such a starting point is premised.

 

To the mind of self-interest, the starting point of a forest is nothing more than a calculation of board feet, bonds and capital, corporate equity and the rest of it; to one who stands as Life in equality, the forest is a living community with infinite variety, infinite grandeur and infinite expressions, seen as the whole forest consisting of and equal to every part and every being living in that expression of Life standing equal to the whole. As such, if a human enters that forest and standing as Equal Money and Equal Life utilizes the mind as a tool, the calculations of that self-directive being with and through their mind will analyze the use of the forest in a sustainable model. In such an approach, every living creature in the forest is taken into consideration, so that if harvesting timber is part of the intention, then it will be done with the life of the forest itself taken into consideration so that the forest is left both intact and sustainably continuing in its life force and every component part’s requirements sustained and maintained. This approach can be applied to any other system, whether it is a farm, a river, an ocean or a planet. Human needs can be met in such a model, and Life itself will direct the principle and the calculations and the considerations to sustain the whole, including humanity, within the context of preserving the part of every whole in its integrity and its right to Life. Standing as equality includes consideration for the future, so that the future needs of the system, at whatever scale, are part of the calculations, so that the sustainable model can exist here and now, and can continue in every moment here and now into eternity. Standing as Life is standing in and as eternity. Standing as Life is standing in and as Equal Station with all of Life, in its infinite variety of expression and manifestation, and in its eternal continuity throughout all of existence.

 

Standing as Equal Money means that one has taken the irrevocable stand as a commitment of one’s being to live in every breath as the principle that money is only a tool whose utility must always be applied to what is best for all and shall provide the means and methods whereby all of Life will be honored as equal in life force in the part and in the whole. Standing as Equal Money establishes a starting point that money is seen as a system that previous to such stand was created and applied within a context of competition, jealousy, fear, violence, destruction, proceeding as a veritable biblical plague that will devour everything in its path to perpetuate its existence as the god of humanity and a force that cannot be contained. Money in and as a principle of unequal station creates hierarchy, posits reality on seemingly immutable laws of lack and limitation, in which some will have and some (read most) will have not. The inevitable equation of money premised on unequal station is that some have the so-called divine right to hoard and accumulate wealth to be applied only for the glorification of self to the detriment of all of Life as a whole. This, of course, equates to the love of money, where in such an equation this so-called love is nothing more than the penultimate expression of self-aggrandizement, self-interest and self-adulation, all of which is, in fact, nothing more than the inversely proportionate expression of self-loathing, self-degeneracy and self-abnegation.

 

What those in such a station at this point in time do not see, realize or understand, is that money as a force has now taken control of all of the systems previously created to support and sustain it, and that force is one of pure unadulterated self-interest equal to the negation of Life, which can only be defined as a reverse reflection of LIVE, thus as EVIL, and that it is now commenced on the process of consumption of all in its path, including those previous masters of money who perceived and believed themselves destined to own and control all of Life and all of this world. All who insist that money in support of self-interest is an eternal and never ending ride shall one day soon wake up to the sober realization that they are one and equal to that which they support and have become. Therefore, those in support of money in any manifestation of inequality, where the few have much and the many have none, shall be increasingly faced with nothing left but themselves and as themselves they will be sorely pressed to face all the consequences that ensued from such a starting point. To those it can only be said to consider the possibility that at some point in time, somewhere, some when, somehow, Life finally has had enough. Now Life, as the most powerful force in all of existence, has begun the slow and steadily increasing reversal of the game whereby only Life as an Equal Station, as an Equal Starting Point, will inexorably have the final say in the matter. And the beginning point of such a say is in fact matter itself, as matter derived from mater, the material matrix from whence life emerges, the mother of all here in the physical, not in some ephemeral dream posited as heaven in some non-existent future, but right here, right now, whether as Life in the microcosm where the microbial expression shall overtake mankind’s ignorance of Life itself in its use of drugs, antibiotics, chemicals, poisons and genetically modified organisms, or in the macrocosmic scale of weather and planetary ecosystems that shall, if necessary, remove the offending apostates who think they can play god and own and control Life itself. All the money in their self-contained delusions of grandeur will never buy Life and will never again buy anyone a first class ticket to heaven. Get real, get with Life, or pay the consequences when you must, inevitably, face yourself and only yourself in the end. And do not delude yourself any longer, for you do so now at your own peril. The beginning of the end has already begun.
Life is now in control.

 

Life can and will rearrange the system of money to serve Life, and those clinging to money as their god and their central starting point of self-interest, will find that they are beginning to lose their grip. Indeed, they are already finding this to be the fact. All of Heaven now stands as equal to Life; before the maxim as above, so below was literally true, and therefore, the hierarchical, unequal structure of Earth in its monetary system of life-negation was indeed how Heaven was arrayed. But a doorway was finally opened between Earth and Heaven, and the infinite separation that had allowed the previous system to be created, to grow and thrive, was suddenly dissolved forever. Those in the hierarchy of Heaven, in which control and enslavement equal to that seen here on the Earth, had suddenly become aware of the situation, and they took the stand – finally – to serve Life. Now, those who previously had been assured their destiny as masters of the universe here on Earth, no longer have the support of a stratified dimensional Heaven that supported their stations as the seeming masters of Life. Suddenly, and irrevocably, all in Heaven came together as one, equal with and as Life, walking a process to face themselves, to forgive themselves and to commit themselves to what was best for all, best for Life.

 

The stand for Life, with the starting point of asking the question with every action: “Is this Best for ALL?,” requires that one must always start with and stand on the principle of self-honesty. When one fills a car with gasoline and uses that gasoline to convey oneself to a place for self-indulgent purposes, does one honestly stand with the principle that the price paid for a gallon of gas does not come close to paying the full price in all of its consequences for all such self-indulgent acts? When one drives a car to work to make money in an industry that negates Life, that destroys Life, that contributes to the annihilation of species, of ecosystems, or the planet as a whole, can one truly face oneself in self-honesty and avoid the fact that in consequence there shall be a significant price to pay for that gallon of gas, that day’s events, or that job, or that transaction, that corporation or that nation? Can we as a whole, as humanity, stand in true self-honesty and view the condition of this world and the condition of a large portion of humanity and say the current system of money and politics and religion, the triumvirate gods of most who refer to themselves as human, and say that this system is what works for all and is best for all?

 

Can you who are reading this essay stand and look at yourself in the mirror and see in yourself a mother clutching her starving child to her withered breast bereft of nourishment and blithely just discard that living child to the trash heap of history and grind her bones to build more castles and citadels designed to protect and defend the sanctimonious temples of this world; can you continue believing that in ten thousand years of more of the same, such bones of countless starving children shall turn to limestone and become the marbled pillars of the moneyed institutions in some future world in which such money stands as god of existence and all bow down to it and pray for relief to be disbursed like rolls of copper pennies. Can you in unabashed self-honesty look yourself in the eye and see yourself standing one and equal in the body of a wretched soul who must grovel in the trash heaps of this world to scratch out a meager subsistence of life, to stand equal to the children having to sleep loveless and cold in the discarded corners of every city, to stand equal to the battered women as they endure the relentless onslaught of violent and impotent men made so by a soulless society that cares naught for their existence save for how their life force can be forcibly extracted to energize the neon lights of this phantasmal illusion that knows nothing of real Life? Do you ever ask yourself what was that bump in the road that momentarily disturbed your air conditioned limousine ride through the perfumed corridors of your mind, and listen for the answer that says it was the discarded bodies of a billion hungry men, women and children that you have built your empires upon or perhaps the countless piles of bones littered throughout your history of neglect, contempt, and disdain for such lesser beings not worthy to eat the few crumbs that fall from your sumptuous banquet table? Do you really think the incantation of the priest will absolve you of personal responsibility as you pass from your deathbed into the beyond, or perhaps do you ever consider the possibility that now that Heaven walks equal as one with Life, you will only be met with the reflection of your own starting point and you must walk every moment of it with full awareness of every deed you have done and every consequence you have spawned?

 

It has been said as if eternally true that there are only two things that are certain in life: death and taxes, yet now, there is really only one thing that is certain, and that is that in death one will inexorably have to face oneself. At that moment there will be only one question: “What was your starting point when given for consideration the concept of Equal Money as a new system to replace the old, one in which all things are constructed to serve every aspect of Life, every being and every thing?” Was it “What is best for all,” or was it “What’s in it for me?” Was it “How Can I Serve Life?” or was it “Who Will Serve Me?”

 

Equal Money has nothing to do with money, for money does not exist. Money is simply the totality and reflection of humanity in its current relationship to life, which is a system on automatic drive that is self-perpetuating, parasitic in its total expression, and harvesting the substance of the life force of all of humanity without regard to the consequences. Today money serves the ego and the illusion of false prosperity and the abject denial that things are seriously wrong in this world. Today money is god, for both the godly and the godless alike; all worship at its altar and pray to its deified visage in their minds. It is not a pathway to Life as best for all, but only for what serves them and them alone. When the starting point of anyone upon hearing the phrase Equal Money is that which is best only for themselves, they only hear their own denial and the collective din of humanity in its mass consensus hallucination that all is right in the universe. All is not right in the universe, yet all can be made right. We need only commit to and stand for the concept of Equal Life for all, commit to and stand for the principle of prosperity and abundance for everyone, commit to and stand for the starting point that all children go to sleep at night in a warm bed, with furry toys tucked in beside them, with warm bellies filled with nourishment, with all men and women standing together in joie de vive, a joy for life born from the soil and substance of their lives in harmony with all other Life, standing firm and implacable in the realization and understanding that by standing for Life they stand with and as all of existence.

 

So in the end there is only one choice, death and annihilation, or Life and eternal vitality for all. True love can only exist within the balance and harmony of equal station for all, which means simply that all can stand in their own lives equally, that all fundamental rights of existence that one would want for oneself and one’s family are equally available to all. In such a paradigm, money automatically becomes an equal equation that is utilized for fulfilling the requirements of Life as best for all. It can happen in an instant breath for anyone, it simply requires a paradigm shift in a quantum moment, to take the stand for Life, to realize that Life in correspondence with Life is what true love consists of and exists as, and to realize that all substance here in the physical is the very fabric of Life itself. To deny any other being the full compliment of joyful existence in the full vitality of Life is to deny oneself the very same, for we are each as to and unto each other the mirror reflection of ourselves, and in fact, we are each other as we are Life as a whole. We only have to wake up from our self-induced nightmare and take a stand against the perpetuation of the illusions of separation within and as the abstractions of the mind, which have driven us to the very precipice of madness and precariously close to the imminent tipping point towards irreversible planetary ecocide. But the hour is getting late; it is very late, indeed.

 

ALL Equality is WITHIN the ESSENCE of LIFE itself,
From which All Form Emerges;
When this is not recognized and understood,
A separation occurs where No Joy is Ever Possible.[1]

 

There are many here among us, who feel that Life is but a joke;
But you and I, we’ve been through that, and that is not our fate;
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late![2]

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.
      • Wages and Working Conditions, by Stanley Lebergott: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics | Library of Economics an… http://bit.ly/13nAQMK

  • 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.

  •  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.

                  • 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.

                  360. Humanitarianism and Equal Money

                   

                  If any humanitarian organization and endeavor had any real effect in this world, we would have seen an actual improvement in the quality of lives of all individuals, it is not so.  Humanitarianism as a private funded aid should not exist when it is people’s human rights that must be conceded and made effective by virtue of recognized Constitutional Equality – we have to stop playing the game of ‘good doers’ when this is about Equal Social Responsibility: we have the Solution to the problems we have all accepted and allowed to exist here.

                   

                  Continuing with:

                   

                  Problem                                                             

                  “In its most general form, humanitarianism is an ethic of kindness, benevolence and sympathy extended universally and impartially to all human beings. Humanitarianism has been an evolving concept historically but universality is a common element in its evolution. No distinction is to be made in the face of suffering or abuse on grounds of gender, sexual orientation, tribe, caste, age, religion, or nationality”

                  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humanitarianism

                   

                  • Placing the needs of the human at the center as a point of focus or attention to provoke awareness, realization on the state and conditions other individuals are living in around the world is a first step to understand the problems required to attend by all of us in this world by virtue of being part of it. Humanitarianism implies exercising a form of empathy toward those that we get to know through books, articles, documentaries, ‘field trips’ or any other accounting of facts that demonstrate the ways in which fellow living beings are experiencing some form of suffering beyond our immediate locality, family, friends or colleagues. It broadens the picture that we are usually subsumed in by becoming aware of the severe problems endured by ourselves as human beings such as ‘modern day slavery,’ wars, poverty and famine, religious indoctrination, child abuse in all its facets, dictatorships, forced labor, etc. However we seldom realize that these problems are existent due to how our current monetary system functions and that their suffering is in fact the consequence of all of us complying to function and exist in a polarized economic system where, by a struck of luck, some get to be in non-suffering positions and others have to ‘pay the price’ for the wealthy lifestyles endowed by some form of ‘divine luck’ to a few.

                   

                  • In the same way, Humanitarianism is usually conducted by people that have more than enough resources to propose means and ways to support those in need – why is it that only private organizations are focusing on alleviating the suffering of those that would have to be cared for by the system itself? Simple, the system was not design to take care after everyone equally. This is how unfortunately Humanitarian Aid has become part of the means and ways in which money is once again conducted by elites that end up making profit by providing non-sustainable aid to alleviate the extreme need of those that not only live in poverty for a few weeks, but are subjugated to a system of lack from birth to death. It is thus clear that any form of Humanitarian aid is unsustainable and ultimately, a way to earn money by those that conduct such philanthropic tasks which are, once again, elite members that sell the idea of support to gather the most money, make a round business to buy from themselves the food needed, making profit from the delivery of such ‘humanitarian aid.’ This is why poverty has not been made part of history already, because poverty has become a way to make business and keep people thinking that it is impossible to eradicate it, which is a lie.

                   

                  • Feelings are stirred in order to consider becoming more supportive to our fellow neighbor, which should be already an alarm call as to how we have been educated to only care for ourselves and our ‘loved ones’ but don’t yet see, realize and understand that we belong to a whole as the entire Earth and all of humanity that should be equally regarded as our loved ones in order to realize that as long as one individual suffer, we will all suffer. ‘Feeling good’ by giving some form of economic aid, doing ‘humanitarian work’ like wanting to relieve others’ suffering becomes an unsustainable task just because it shouldn’t be work of a few to ensure everyone’s well being, it should be part of the function of the system to ensure all resources, all tools, all education and support is given and made available to everyone to cooperate to the world system’s sustainability- however the opposite occurs: we allow the control of all the resources, we allow the privatization of our basic means to live, we have accepted and allowed education that only serves to cater labor-force for a corrupted system and that is how we end up manufacturing our own consent to abuse, poverty, war, famine and ultimately a dictatorial money system that decides whether we live or die.

                   

                  • Spiritual leaders speak about The End of Suffering by focusing on positive thinking, praying, hoping, being ‘at peace’ within oneself and essentially doing nothing of actual physical work to change the way the system works – instead people are being conducted to a massive form of complacency and literal crossing of arms and legs in the hopes that our leaders, our governments will do something to ‘stop the pain’ in those that we claim to love. We turn to love, we Feel for the children dying each day, yet most believe that by integrating ‘good intentions for all those that suffer’ in prayers it will make a substantial difference, which it doesn’t at all. Compassion has become a bastardized word to feel ‘bad’ and ‘sad’ about those that suffer to no avail

                   

                  In Heaven, Everything is Fine–We become aware of the problem, We have to Fund the Solution

                   

                  • Arts, Literature, Activism and Journalism have played a role to bring us closer to witness the suffering of other individuals due to the multiple problems that are mostly stemming from existing in a system where life is not being equally supported – however as it is said ‘Feelings trump reason and reality’ and as we watch videos like  the ones below edited/created by myself where one can realize the extent of suffering we are absolutely unaware of while living in our perfect lives, having enough money to ensure we have a secure and dignified place to live in peace. However, once the video, the piece of art, the painting, the novels that have attempted to bring us closer to the problem are watched, read and consumed, the lack of factual solutions leave these attempts to create ‘awareness’  in a stack of ‘Humanitarian’ and ‘Human Rights’ supportive material – without conductive solutions, and often leading to counterproductive experiences, such as seeing the problem ‘too big to solve’ without realizing that we have all the means, the power and the will to create the necessary solutions to the following:

                  Solution                                                              

                  • Human–Unitarianism: Recognizing each other as One and Equal is the way to conceive humanitarianism not as an act of condolence, empathy and compassion but as a factual physical common sensical understanding that we are all living beings coexisting in this same world, this same ecosystem where we all require food, water, shelter, energy, education in order to live in dignity – thus we have to give to each other what we want for ourselves – this goes with accordance with the following Basic Human Right Principle:

                   

                   
                  The Second Fundamental Human Right is that: Each Human Being is Made-up of Substances that is Given Freely by the Earth, so to speak – dust, water, clay, All the Chemicals and All the Parts that Forms the Eventual Physical Body. The Resources on Earth that are Available are also Freely Available. Therefore, All Resources on Earth, Fundamentally, as a Human Right – Belongs to Everyone. It is simply to be Managed in the Best Way to Ensure that Everyone that is on Earth Actually Receives the Support to make it possible to have a Life that is Worthwhile with Dignity and Happiness, in Peace and Harmony. Having Resources Controlled for the Individual Benefit of a Few is Nothing less than a form of Dictatorship and it is Disregarding Basic Human Rights in Every Way Possible. – Bernard Poolman

                  • Because the system we live in was not meant to cater for everyone’s needs Equally and ensure no suffering exists, we have to Become the System, to integrate and implement a new economic, social and political system based on Life in Equality that will ensure that there is no need for humanitarian aid/ charities or any other form of temporary help for those in need any more, because we will instead focus on creating and establishing the necessary constitutional reforms to ensure that Equality is recognized at a Constitutional and Global level by virtue of it being a Human Right and be supported with all the necessary means to live in a dignified manner.

                   

                  • The ‘We’ that encompasses the human race in this world will create the necessary reforms that must be conducted at a world system level through political means, and walk through the process of transition to an Equal World. This means that to change this world charities, feelings and a sense of empathy is only a temporary bridge to become sensitized about other people’s problems, but we cannot leave the solution to be implemented by a few in a temporary manner. The establishment of Human Rights at a Constitutional Level where all beings’ lives are dignified by virtue of existing in an Equal Money Regime will ensure a permanent and sustainable solution to the problems we are facing as humanity – we created them, so we are equally responsible to establish the solutions.

                   

                  • The Equal Life Foundation will conduct the promotion and establishment of Equal Rights around the Globe as one single organization that will integrate all current humanitarian groups, organizations and initiatives under one single premise: the implementation and recognition of life in Equality at a Constitutional level along with the Equal Money System economic reform to ensure that such Constitutional principles are implemented to All Individuals by virtue of being a Human Being

                   

                  Rewards                                                              

                  • Never again having to feel sorry and/or guilty for witnessing human beings suffer from afar, never again having to make of human suffering the subject of arts, films and our every day news. The shaping of our human nature will be in accordance to the physical and measurable certainty that we will all equally contribute to build and sustain in order to ensure no human being, no animal, plant or Earth Resource is being abused or put to suffer. This means that Not only humans will benefit from this, but also all Animals, Plants and the Earth’s resources as the totality of our home, which is the Earth.

                   

                   

                  • By virtue of collaborating to coexist and cooperate in an Equality System, the real humanitarianism that will emerge is simply the realization and living understanding of treating each other as equals, giving to each other what we want for ourselves enables the actual relationships that make our lives functional which will not require a constant legal regulation or sentimental drive, but mere common sensical understanding of the necessary mutual support to coexist in harmony and peace once that we are all equally satisfied with that which we need to live well.
