323.Hegemony and Equal Money Capitalism

How to dismantle the Power dilemma between Politics and Economics and settle Peace on Earth? Ambitious? No, common sense and a new living order based on the Principle of Life in Equality.

Problem                                                                 

Continuing with the ‘opposition’ between economic and political powers as presented by the capitalist website that we are using as  reference to present solutions and straighten up/ rehabilitate capitalism wherein we have the following question:

How do these forms of power operate under capitalism?

Laissez faire recognizes that political power (destruction) should only be used to fight destruction, i.e., force should only be used to retaliate and defend against those who initiate force — whether they be a gang of street thugs, or a whole nation bent at war.

Observe that a man gains nothing from killing an attacker, he is no better off then before he was attacked — he has only prevented a greater loss (his death) by putting an end to the attacker. Only the mind creates, force destroys. When force is directed towards destroying force, its use is entirely proper, since it protects those who create.

Power is the most significant variable in any Imperialistic system, it is a means to an end wherein economic and political interests intermix now with the government and corporations alike funding war in the name democracy and liberty, with ‘Foreign Policies’ to ‘bring freedom and democracy’ to the people that are believed to be oppressed by some form of ‘dictator’ that would have a socialist or communist regime, which is precisely the type of obstacles that Capitalism seeks to destroy in order to propagate the ‘openness’ necessary for Free Trade  which we will expand in the following blogs.

 

Thus, this quote above shows a very ‘just’ manner of looking at the offense-defense balance kept at a political level – what’s not being realized is that currently war is obviously not only an armed movement, but it is also being propagated in the ethos of ‘Grow or die” / “Eat or Be Eaten” which is nothing else but Imperialism in which states engage in order to have the ‘power’ required to in essence achieve Autarky at the expense of those that are subdued by this imposed force. It is a lie that only a military offense causes the use of defense against others, it is in fact this current Capitalist Imperialism that uses the political power to vote to wage war with justified sentiments and sufficient nationalist-means of salvation toward foreigners, using public treasury and corporate sponsorship to expand an empire when it is reaching its last drops of resources. 

Huh? but Nations are ‘Equal,’ right? This is in fact the Animal Farm type of Equality where some states are More Equal than others. What is being absolutely hidden at the eyes of this  benevolent capitalist philosophy is the basic aspect wherein power is defined by the ability to control, expand influence upon other political entities. This has to be read upon the words of Free Trade and Multi National Corporations and Enterprises which don’t precisely represent an armed force, but its policies and means are worse than any assault with weapons. The purpose? Expansion of trading partners ensuring a relationship of control and dominance and extinguishing any potential rivalry or overthrow. This makes it clear how it is  both a political and economic enterprise, the real reasons for why America goes to war and why it has such a well-suited army: it is never a benevolent act of ‘Salvation’ but only an expansion and deployment of Foreign Policies such as growing your markets, resources, cheap labor force, territory, strategic territory and a general enhancement of your dominion over How the world works.

 

Free Trade in itself is not yet considered as such form of abuse or diplomatic war between countries – or coup d’état –  because it is all masked under the promise of ‘progress’ and ‘liberty’ along with a ‘peace keeping’ banner or job creation purposes, covering up the winner’s decision to make of certain nations their new allies i.e., new markets to exploit for the empire’s bastion with free trade and free access to cheap labor, unfedered use of resources to sell at a higher price back home, and this is the way Power is forged. These actions are being deployed by corporations in an unregulated manner, it is an arbitrary intervention that takes place at the eyes of a powerless society that believes there is no say about the atrocities, where our politicians and  laws protect the interests of these tycoons and not the people’s.

 

All of this brutal process that implies the formation of slave labor, depletion of resources, contamination/ pollution of resources, massive social inequality and ultimately poverty, a psychological dominance that determines an entire nation’s development powered up with its counterpart founded upon the belief of progress backed up by the implementation of a  consumerist mindset as the necessary desire-making driving force in people to neglect the powers at play. 

 

It is actually the conjunction of the political and economic power to be mutually effective for both factions that cause as seemingly invincible force against the population. The Government and the Economic Powers as Corporations are the real force being used against the majority, that’s the ‘Real Use’ of both factions within Capitalism in its current functioning and definition, all of it done under the legal frameworks that you an I have managed to abdicate our responsibility from the moment that we vote off our responsibilities.

 

Let’s not forget that waging war is always an economic end in itself, how could it be justified with any form of honor or integrity when it means death and destruction for the benefit of obtaining control. This has also been used as a means to distract from the bad economy,

 

Solution                                                               

No ruling power over another, no dominance, only Equality as Principled Living: the dismantling of these ‘powers’ as we have explained in previous entries must come through a collective decision to no longer delegate power to ruling elites in the government and corporations, it must be through a new International Treaty that bans all creation and use of weapons as a definitive settlement for peace between nations . The creation of organizations like NATO in 1949 have served as a way to justify imposing a world order under the premise of ‘keeping peace’ at an international level, which is absolutely absurd that we are ‘keeping peace’ while constantly being ‘on guard’ and ready to attack the least form of offense.

We can decide to create an International Organization to oversee and regulate political and economic relationships between nations, this will hold the same quality as any other administration as a participatory democracy where individuals can be granted the opportunity to become an authority to ensure that all equilateral relationships remain within the agreed Equality Principles between nations, ensuring peace and never again resorting to war as a means to solve a problem. Diplomacy will be the art of communicating to get to settle agreements that benefit all equally. It is this simple when there is no money-power play to manage, where there are no more ‘mutually exclusive interests.’

 

The security department at a political level organization will eventually disappear in the extent that it exists now from the paradigm of what political power means, since there will be no need to ‘defend and offend’ between states, there will be no ability to wage war s in self interest, nor any organism that justifies doing so either.

 

Rewards                                                               

The security dilemma of increasing security while decreasing security keeping a constant hostility between individuals and nations  will be a tale of our past wherein investing on weapons was a way to exert a psychological pressure to have power over others, replaced with genuine care and mutual assessment to ensure that a living principle of life in Equality is guarded by all participants in a communal assessment of all Nations in their administrative process – this is no different to the support that will exist between individuals to ensure we all become our own policy guards where the least form of abuse can be called out and dealt with properly by the necessary organisms that will be created for that.

 

There will be no hegemon, there will be no centralization of power or bipolar orders, it will be a multi polar order understood as the sovereignty between states that can only exist in a peaceful manner in equilateral relationships for marketing, cultural and immigration purposes. Trade will exist as a matter of convenience between nations, ensuring that there is no form of exploitation upon physical reality, as the Earth’s resources or human labor which will be a common sense realization once there is no more ‘more profit’ from exporting and importing goods, earning money from tariffs or  price manipulation, nor will slave labor exist to generate ‘the most profit’ for a few either since all will be receiving equal-profit share.

 

An alignment of interests will emerge, from ‘mutually exclusive’ to mutually inclusive, this is the meaning of Harmony at a political and economic level, a deliberate cooperation within the understanding that we require to coexist in equal terms to ensure peace between individuals and nations.

68. Money is a Hegemonic Language

 

I forgive myself that I haven’t accepted and allowed myself to see, realize and understand that Money as a language is elitism, because it is not a language that All beings can equally participate in – this makes Money a language that has commanded the greatest abuse that is daily lived as the ‘power’ that we have all collectively accepted and allowed ‘money’ to have and exist as, which reveals that money as a hegemonic system was never meant to be in the best interest of all, but as a weapon of choice to create desires, inflate egos as the mind of men and justify denying life to others as market-forces that are obviously also man-made in the name of self-interest and personal glorification at the literal expense of others.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not see that money is a hegemonic system because its rules and regulations and actual functioning is not revealed, shown or taught in schools, which is a basic aspect/ point that should be implemented in order to make sure that all transactions existent as money can be equally-understood by people, as equal understanding implies equal-power. This is what makes economics and financial systems the very tool to exert power as their ‘terms and conditions’ as rules and regulations can only be understood by a people that are trained to perpetuate its apparent ‘complexity,’ which is meant to only divide and conquer over the population when the majority has no access to such understanding, or no interest at all in it due to it being a secluded and elitist group of people the ones that make the rules and regulations to their own benefit.

 

I forgive myself that I haven’t accepted and allowed myself to see and realize that the greatest imperialism that humanity has lived is Money, as it became the primary motivation to control, divide and conquer in means of establishing power over a certain population, which is an action that money enabled through its unequal existence and access for all beings equally, becoming a means to establish control and ‘order’ upon the lives of human beings– hence Money as a language became the real ‘king of the world’ through processes of imperialism/ colonization as the imposition of a particular currency/ worth/ value over Life.

 

I forgive myself that I haven’t accepted and allowed myself to realize that the real dictator over the world is money as the creation of human being to which we have all enslaved ourselves and nature to, which is now revealing the consequences of such forced-imposition over Life as the depletion, destruction and absolute obliteration of nature and the animal kingdom evidences, as the demonstration of the obvious consequence of a man-made system in separation of ourselves is followed in means of having ‘power’ upon Life, not realizing that Life as a system can Only function if it is Equally regarded, Equally provided and given to all in Equality.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to see everything around me in monetary terms and no longer as unconditional available matter that can be distributed to all beings equally, but instead has become an asset/ product in itself that can be capitalized, which is a form of having power/control over and raping the nature and unconditional-beingness of everything on Earth, turning it all into a separate value of which, when arbitrarily owned/ possessed by an individual, can be capitalized according to our current rules/ regulations of the monetary system that is not based on providing ALL with equal-access to everything that is here of/ as the Earth, but has made of Life a Market that was built in the name of establishing control over resources through deliberately denying to all human beings having equal-access to it, because that would mean that No Abuse would be possible = No Power over others/ life itself, which is what we are currently accepting and allowing as capitalism and our current monetary system.

 

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to believe that through accepting money as a sign of ‘power’ to acquire that which I require to live, I was inheriting ‘the best option available’ as world-system due to the trust placed on parents and those in ‘powerful positions,’ wherein through believing and trusting that they are really looking after the ‘best interest of all,’ I proceeding to merely follow and comply the system, believing that it was the best possible option to live-by in this world – within this

 

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to see the ‘lack of money’ as part of the individual’s lessons for not wanting to contribute in a ‘productive sector’ of society, being lazy, bad karma and any other excuse that I could use in order to justify my acceptance of poverty and starvation as part of my everyday reality, becoming part of the ‘social scenario’ without further questioning it.

 

I forgive myself that I haven’t accepted and allowed myself to see and realize that Money as a language was not created in the best interest of all, but rather in means of Controlling All for the benefit of some – which is why and how Money as it currently exist must come to an end as a language and re-signify itself with a New definition that can stand Here as the Reality of Who and What We Are as One and Equal, which means that Money can only take One Single and Only New Meaning and Value: Life in Equality for/as All.

 

I forgive myself that I haven’t accepted and allowed myself to see, realize and understand that what we are witnessing as this world and all the events that point out to a monetary de-function/ death, is the inevitable fall of what had begun with a certain beginning and an end, as all systems based on energy that are not equally giving and receiving in a symbiotic relationship, are meant to die due to/ because of the inevitable abuse upon life with such an artificially-made system in means of control, which cannot be sustainable now that Life in Equality is the only Principle that will prevail in our existence.

 

I commit myself to make of Money as Equal-Money a Universal Language that all can have access to as a means of getting and receiving that which is required to live, wherein power over life is no longer possible/ existent as a meaning-itself within beings’ minds, as we will understand that it is only through giving and receiving in Equality that Who We Are as Equal Participants in this Social Organism can thrive as a Living-Organism in Equal relationships of power. This means that no more discrimination and elitism will ever exist once that we LIVE the Meaning of Equal-Money as Equally Giving and Receiving what we need and require to live as Equals in this world and Existence.

 

I commit myself to create the necessary Shift in the language that Money represents in this world, to re-educate ourselves on how it is through the value/ meaning/ worth we give to Words as the meaning of ‘who we are’ and what we accept and allow ourselves to exist-as, that we create our own prison or liberation – hence, the current monetary system is currently a prison-word that we can Revitalize and Shift into a New Meaning that Signifies Life in Equality – Money as a means to administrate the relationships between individuals and the resources available, to ensure that all are equally able to have access to the resources, products and services that stem from and of the Earth, and give / receive them unconditionally through money as an administrative tool to ensure that Real Economy takes place in consideration of the physicality of Life on Earth as Equality.

 

I realize that, just as the evolution and shifting necessary within the power that language has over beings and the relationships defined by words and people toward the environment and each other, it is a progressive process wherein the meaning of Life in Equality must be imparted as an Educational Process first, so that we can grasp what does Equality as a Quality of Being Here as Who and What we Are as Life means; this way, Money as a word lived in Equality means it is stemming from such understanding and living realization, which signifies it can only exist as a tool that benefits all as equal-participants of the world-community, using money as a language as a means of communication with the environment and each other in equal relationship to one another.

 

I realize that the assimilation of Life in Equality is but a concept that cannot be grasped only through words, because such words have Never Been Lived. Hence, I commit myself to stand as the example of what it means to equalize life as myself, as the self-forgiveness process of all the relationships that I have formed in separation of myself, to see how I have placed value/ worth in separation of myself as life itself – and from there, realize that in order to create an actual change in this world, the very Meaning of the Word Equality must be first lived within and as individuals that are able to stand as Living Examples of what Equality implies as a Living-Realization of Who and What we are in and as this World and Existence.

 

I commit myself to explain that a mint linguistic system must be in order with the ways that the population live within themselves, as words can only be Lived if realized as a Living-Aspect of Self, as a inherent quality that truly denotes who and what we are as such word, which means that Equal-Money in the Equal Money System  is the word that will allow us to first train ourselves to consider that the one and only value in Life is Life itself, and that such means of exchange as Equal-Money cannot mean any ‘more’ or ‘less’ than Life itself.

 

I commit myself to establish money as an Homogeneous System wherein all being and parts coexist in harmony where no harm is perpetuated by the lack or excess of money as ‘power over life,’ but instead is understood and amalgamated as an equal and one tool that each one can use as a word, as a means to signify the actual giving and receiving in equality, which is what ‘Love’ would really mean in a tangible and physical way as a System that Works for All Equally.

 

I commit myself to make of Money a language that signifies the best interest of all in all ways, that can be easily understood as there won’t be any fraudulent means to ‘gain power’ over others, as the only real power will only exist in Equality as Life.

Interview:

2012 Fear of God

When you are a child and you are told that there is an ‘all seeing god’ that is watching you in every single moment of your petrified existence, what do you eventually grow toward such invisible policeman in the sky? Fear.

I have explained before how my belief in a God as an all seeing guy that could eventually communicate through other ‘delegates’ through mediums – and ventilate my little-secrets in front of my family- became a driving-fear within my every day living. I feared being watched all the time, I would go into a mix of fear, guilt and anxiety for doing something that I considered was ‘wrong’ in the eyes of ‘god.’ More than fear of ‘God’ itself as this omnipresent-omniscient, omnipotent, and even apparently omnidirectional ethereal being that ‘God’ was supposed to be, I feared the consequences of doing/ saying something that would make him mad/ angry at me. I eventually became watchful of my every step and thought in order to ‘not piss off God’

When looking at this point, I can see how ever since I became aware of this god-point and wanting to, in essence, ‘be liked by God’ in order to ‘get a reward back’ later on in my life for it,  I created a personality of being a ‘good girl’ that is accumulating golden coins through benevolent acts and benevolent thinking, just so that I would not have to face the point that I actually feared, which was ‘The wrath of God.’ Hell knows how I even got that idea of ‘God’ being a wrathful being if you didn’t stick to the line of being a ‘good fella.’ However, I stuck to the code and I kept track of my thoughts and actions from the starting point of fear.

 

Even at the peak of me realizing that such faith in God was plain brainwashing, I still held this idea of a greater force that could eventually come back and obliterate myself I one sneeze if I just kept doing everything that I wasn’t supposed to do – or that I would eventually be punished by having hundreds of future-lives living in misery. Fear became the driving force for me to ‘behave well’ and be a ‘good neighbor,’ just because of keeping my own score at the eyes of God.

 

Of course I would not talk about this with anyone – my belief in the afterlife and the white-light beings watching my every step was ‘My secret’ and no one was supposed to know, because apparently I was privileged and special – along with my family – to have such protection which, somehow, in the elitist realms of heaven not anyone could have access to. I mean, I would essentially mock Catholics that would go to church believing that god was in some flour-chip drenched in wine. Yet, I believed in all of these long-ass rants wherein the heaven and stars was given to us in order to keep the faithfully deceived ‘happy’ by being ‘special’ and having this super spiritual protection from the white brotherhood of God- lol. I remember some of those ‘sessions’ at my house with some of those mediums, having to hear a seemingly endless list of names of death people that had been lurking around my house,  that were apparently ‘given light’ in that moment to ascend. The sheer thought of having invisible death beings around me was something that scared me a LOT – however it was all part of the idea that such death souls were lost for a moment and had found some  “light” in our house, LOL

 

 

‘God’ as the reason to Stop Self-Abuse

How I have observed this pattern of fearing God and using God (or Baby Jesus for kids) at least here in Mexico and within the culture that I have seen around me, is using it as the perfect excuse to threaten beings to ‘have good morals’ and ‘act in the right ways.’ As I just explained to this wasn’t the type of ‘resource’ used by my parents in order for me to behave.  My mother would rather use the idea of monsters or any other ghastly creature for the same purposes, and I can say it worked the exact same way.

 

So, here specifically with poor people– which is a great majority in this country –  and people living in rural areas in México, traditions, family and religious values are the basis of their upbringing and education.  Faith and devotion form essential ingredients of their family-values wherein if the mother / father finds no way to show their children why they must behave or do something, they turn to god and use it as an excuse to do as they say:

“If you don’t do your homework, baby Jesus will start crying!”

“If you take drugs and alcohol, our holy mother will start crying”

“If you beat your wife, you will sure have to explain your deeds to our holy father once you are on your way to hell”

And so, people are easily conducted through using God – or any deity for that matter – as a point of fear in order to ‘tame’ human beings to behave well, to do as they are told and eventually become docile beings that are then considered ‘faithful’ because of how supple they have become in order to accept ‘the word of god.’

 

Within this idea of ‘God’ being an omnipotent being that decides whether you live or die, go to heaven or hell, but is also able to give you extra-powers to do stuff that you are apparently unable to do by yourself,  God/saints are used to, for example, stop/ quit a certain addiction.

In my family, people that have drunk for probably half of their life, one day – after a car accident or having someone dying in a car crash due to being drunk, or seeing someone dying of alcoholism – they decided to ‘swear to the virgin that they won’t drink again.’ And I have been amazed by how they do live and respect that ‘swearing,’ which goes hand-in-hand with the same fear that they were brought up with from childhood, wherein ‘God’ as the policeman in the head is the one thing that they respect and obey above all, even above their immediate ‘authorities’ like parents/ family members.

 

And this is not limited to only ‘rural areas’ wherein the catholic roman church holds the hegemony of people’s lives for the most part. In the streets of one of the busiest avenues in Mexico City, one can see painted virgins graffiti-style on the walls wherein messages are apparently given ‘in the name of the virgin’ in order for people – mostly males in this case – to stop drinking, to come home early after work and not take/ indulge into drugs; to keep their money for their family instead of squandering it in ‘gaming’ a.k.a. gambling, prostitutes and buying alcohol or drugs.  And you might think that such an image with those words would have no effect on people, but it actually does. This goes hand in hand with the level of cultural indoctrination wherein in a hypothetical situation, people can be fighting to death and yelling the hell at each other – but if a church, priest or virgin or anything related to their belief could suddenly emerge around them, they would simply stop, appease, maybe feel remorseful for a moment and probably even stop their confrontation.

How come we have delegated our common-sensical ability to stop for a moment to look and realize what we are accepting and allowing ourselves to be and become, only through the belief or idea in some magnificent being that is watching over our heads?

 

Why have we required a savior to exist?

 

The point is realizing how beings that take on points such as stopping addictions by ‘swearing to the virgin’ could essentially realize that they are walking a decision to stop any addiction by themselves, by their own will. However, it is as though they require this ‘God’ idea no matter what, they believe that something ‘extraordinary ‘ is giving them the necessary strength to overcome their addictions.

 

The reality is that each one could easily see that you don’t require the idea of a loving-caring invisible being in order to take on responsibility for stopping an addiction, for example. The only reason why the idea of god/ saint/ invisible force to be the mediator for you to keep your word, is because we haven’t yet allowed ourselves to trust ourselves through proving that we can actually do, say and live that which we say that we will.

 

 

‘God’ is not required to ‘keep going’ through life.

The moment that the belief in God was finally debunked within me, part of the downward spiral experience was because of realizing that I wasn’t living a life for myself, as an actual living expression and self-caring consideration. I was only living a life wherein I could accumulate a great score in order to satisfy ‘God’ and have a kickass afterlife experience that could, apparently, compensate for any bitter taste that I could have experienced while ‘being alive.’ This is how we go living our lives waiting to die, accommodating ourselves and directing ‘who we are’ based on a divine system of punishment & reward which eventually affects all our decisions in this world. And it is absolutely ludicrous to see how if there was no ‘god’ as a police-force within millions of beings, things could be even worse.

However, religion as this ‘untouchable law’ within people is nowadays becoming more ‘light’ and only remains with such ‘power’ in poor, small towns/ cities that are very traditional and still hold a blind-faith toward all-things ‘God.’ Once that money steps in the scene, things change. And proof of that is seeing how the narcos/drug dealers who are essentially poor people that get involved into dealing drugs for the good money it represents, they still hold their belief in a ‘god’ or ‘saints’ – yet what they now do is forging the image or name of the deity of their choice in their 24k gold-bathed guns that they use to give the ‘sure shot’ to someone. Somehow saints are now involved into taking care of criminals, doing the best they can to exterminate those that dare to challenge their heavenly drug-lord business.

 

Prescinding the Policeman in the Head

No matter what cult people are in – they have this authority-figure that they fear ‘letting down’ with their actions/ words and that’s how the bondage of religion is woven.

So, instead of having to submit ourselves as human beings to an idea of such god-policeman in the head, to keep it as a constant reminder of ‘why we should do onto another what we want for ourselves,’ we can simply understand that this it the way to direct ourselves in this world – and live it. Why is there the need to rely on a religion/ belief in order to ‘do well’? Is it that only through beliefs in invisible deities we are able to realize our actual potential and determination to do something, to stop a habit, to become self-responsible? No, and I have proven this for myself.

Once that all the fear of god is gone and there is no aspiration to get to a heaven, what remains is Earth, as grounded as it can be wherein you realize that everything you do, you walk according to what you see/ understand is best for yourself = best for all day by day.

 

The God concept as the policeman in the head, can be prescinded as it serves no purpose other than keeping people bound to a certain religion that is then equated as ‘that which gives them force to continue,’ without realizing that such force is not given by an almighty god, but has always actually been here as ourselves, we just were too coward and gullible to think that we required someone else to endow it to us.

 

Common sense overrides all fears – this is how we walk in this world then, fears are irrational and have no other purpose than limiting our living expression in the moment. We are witnessing how fear has become the actual source of mind control in our reality: we’ve done it to ourselves and it’s time to stop for once and for all.
