366. Health Care is a Human Right | Equal Money


By us accepting the fact that we are only part of a Nation and not of the Human Group as a Whole, we tacitly agree to be either well supported like some first world countries in the European Union or be absolutely disenfranchised from our living rights due to living in, for example,  a third world country. We have missed the obvious: Nations are just corporations that function according to the interests of those who are at the head of it, the ones that were able to set the rules to their benefit without considering that Humanity is not defined by Nations, it is one single Group as a Whole which means that by accepting and allowing lack of basic living care/ health care to All individuals, we are creating our own disease because, just like our human body, we cannot leave our feet without blood irrigation, we would die – so why have we allowed people to lack basic health care as a living right?

 

Continuing with:

 

Problem                                                  

  • In the Universal Declaration of Rights – on  Health
      
    Article 25.
    • (1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
    • (2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.

 

 

As reviewed with all the previous Basic Human Living Rights,  not having proper living conditions leads to health problems that are tied to no housing, bad nutrition habits, no hygiene or facilities for proper sanitation, lack of water, bad eating habits, stress and other mental conditions due to our current survival-system wherein without money you don’t get to live, and if you don’t get enough, a great sense of fear is generated due to fearing not having something to eat or somewhere to live in the following day. Health problems are extensive and all the various categories can be found here:

 

Profit and Loss

The Current Health Care System is based primarily on a profit and loss system, which means that due to rising Health Care costs, a large percentage of people are unable to afford basic Health Care. Take the World Health Organization (WHO), established in 1948, as a ‘specialized agency of the United Nations’ (UN) that is concerned with international public health. Even with their main objective being “the attainment by all people of the highest possible level of health”, we are still seeing health care costs increasing, leaving most people unable to afford what has become a luxury in most countries, instead of a basic human right. Doctors overcharge people because they claim they are making up their study fees, so the question is why is the education system based on Greed and not on developing people to support Society? Doctors and other health care professionals charge according to their lifestyle and overhead costs, thus proving that within the current capitalistic system, everybody is trapped in the same cycle based on survival and greed.

Why is it that with so much time spent on talking about the Global Health Care crisis, involving billions in global summits and assemblies are we still allowing this crisis to occur in the first place? There is also the question of cures for illness and disease. Are those who have the answers to treatments being truthful in revealing their research or are the answers hidden behind profit margins? The problems exists in that all who are part of the Current Health care System are driven currently by profit to survive and will therefore do what is necessary for their own survival by shifting costs, and restricting services.

 

Health Care in the Equal Money Wiki

 

To get a perspective at a global level on the Health Care/Medical Support System, read through the charts in the following sites which again, it is only data that is collected by people of which we cannot absolutely trust is ‘how things really are’ – however it gives us a perspective in terms of the inequality that exists. This is the outflow of the level in which our current world-system is guided by: divide and conquer and absolute disregard of common sense. We haven’t yet understood that we are ALL Collectively affected by the people that are currently suffering in some ‘remote part of the world’ and having No help whatsoever to live in dignity – just take a moment to read through the numbers here:

World Development Indicators: Health systems

2.16Disease prevention coverage and quality

2.17Reproductive health

2.18Nutrition and growth

2.20Health risk factors and future challenges

2.22Health gaps by income: Demography

2.22.2Health gaps by income: Child health

 

There are many problems if we speak about Health in our world. There is not only Physical body Health, but Mental Health, Environmental Health, Nutrition, Disease Prevention, Human Relationships, Economic Health, etc. Because we have to understand Health care is not limited to having access to a doctor when we are sick, sickness is already the consequential outflow of a series of points overlooked in order to create Health as a basic stable living condition where all parts of the organism coexist in Harmony.

 

Now, what we have allowed within our current system of lack, scarcity, control through fear and so forth is constantly creating disease at a mind level which inevitably inflicts a form of abuse upon the physical which is life, because disease in itself is formed according to violating the very basic living principles of Life which are Equality and Oneness as the Equal Consideration of all bodies in Existence as requiring equal support.  What does this mean? That the moment we agreed to coexist in a system that is Not of Life, that supports the division of all bodies of existence through monetary systems, through laws, politics, personal preferences, ideas, religions, etc. – essentially all the knowledge and information we have created of ourselves as ‘nations,’ as ‘money,’ as ‘laws’ has become our very own weapons with which we have neglected the basic fact: Life is Physical in all ways and this very principle is violated when we set up rules that without consideration of this physical equality, defines that one part of that whole cannot get access to basic living conditions which results in the problems we are experiencing now: through money, through politics, through laws that have been created at the same time by our very own thoughts and self interest. We have created the disease in this world because Denying to another part of the whole the necessary to live in dignity is creating the Cancer, the Disease that we will all eventually be infected with.  This might seem like a harsh way to look at it, yet it is at the same time absolutely Necessary to comprehend in order to then realize why it is that the lack of Healthcare is a direct result of us not supporting all bodies of existence in Equality – what does this mean? Giving to each part an equal assured support to live in the best conditions possible. This means not only money, but a complete restructure of the systems in which we develop our lives within, because that’s the definition of Health: a sound living process of living in mutual/ inter-dependent self support where ALL beings can given all the essential requirements to live and at the same time, contribute to do the same in an equal manner.

 

I encourage you to make the time to watch the following documentary Sicko by Michael Moore since it is a way to look at this point in terms of the World-System problem and politics revolving around the lack and deficiency of the Health Care System in some counties in the world.

Just ponder the following: Why haven’t we connected the dots to understand that the lack of and/or hideous conditions of all the previously disclosed human rights in this blog is the disease in our world – therefore instead of pointing out the deficiencies that we have in terms of food, water, hygiene, education, having a dignified job, being considered as Equal by the Constitution, we can look at the cost that it takes for the majority of this world to fix/ correct or get back to a point of health again.What must be looked at it is not only how unjust and unfair the system is or how corrupt the corporations are, but how we have intrinsically accepted and allowed this system of corruption, of crime and greed to become the very directive principle of our lives without any common sense dictating the obvious: Life should be cared for and given to all in Equality, as that is what must be Understood as the living principle that will ensure Health, a Sound living condition to everyone that is part of our world-system – not only humans, because that is also a general tendency: to only look at health in terms of humans, hospitals and doctors – that is just a fragment of the actual well being that must be looked after which begins at a thought level in our own minds which is what in fact dictates how we live and what we do with our lives in this world.

 

Mental problems are in such case an aspect that must be placed into consideration and ponder as the starting point of the illness and disease within and without of ourselves – this is what is most important to understand and take a responsibility for individually, because we are the ones that create the general Disease in this world, in how we manage every single relationship that exists toward everyone and everything in our reality: one single violation to our living principle of equality and we create disease, one single thought of disregard,  hatred, greed, self interest, judgment and of any other vile nature and we give permission to the poison in this world to exist that is causing the disease we are currently facing as viruses.

 

We can all see how we create a constant relationship of friction and conflict within us and toward others based on what we think is right and wrong, but without having established a living principle within ourselves, it will mostly be difficult to in any way get to a point of health and harmony if we don’t first educate ourselves about the importance of working as equals, regarding each other as equals so that the point of health is regarded within and manifested without as the necessary restructuring of our world system to fix the problems we face wherein people don’t have the money to pay for their basic healthcare or living necessities.

 

All of this is the real starting point of the problem in our world-system, it begins within ourselves and as such the solution will have to Also begin within ourselves– You can investigate in your own health care center, investigate how much money it takes for a pregnant woman to give birth, how much money would it cost you to fix your teeth, to have a general blood test done to see how efficient your nutrition is, how much does a general GP checkup for yourself and your children cost, how much would you have to spend to have a surgery to remove a cyst, to have some urgent intervention when having a heart attack and you’ll see that in countries where health care is not a universal human right, you’ll end up more ‘dead’ due to the debt than the actual cause of the disease/ problem.

 

People asking for money to pay for their medical bill is not a strange thing in this third world country I live in, it happened yesterday: a pregnant woman and her partner asking for money – however it can become a business with people that are used to panhandling and getting money instead of working – none of this would be a problem if Health was In fact a recognized as a living right for All individuals by virtue of: being alive. You might see in the documentary posted above the level of comfort that people exist in when not having to worry about having to give a single coin for the medical support they get in the countries where Health is a given right – of course there are taxes and of course they are not in reality ‘free’,’ but that is precisely the point of giving and receiving that must be understood in order to realize to what extent in our pursuit of happiness through greed and money, we have limited ourselves and our ability to live in harmony because some accumulate instead of constantly giving and receiving in equality.

 

Another problem is how we have defined happiness and well being according to the amount of money we have to buy that which we believe satisfies us, we believe ourselves to be healthy if we have all the food, water, housing and luxuries that are able to be bought with that, but what is not considered is that as long as one remains with thoughts of harm, abuse, neglect or hatred or simply not considering others as an equal part of this reality as part of ourselves = we become the very problem that prevents any solution from being implemented in fact; because the disease in this world is not only lacking the basic means to live, but also lacking the basic principles and considerations of ensuring that every single individual is having the best living conditions that we have. Stability as Health as a sound living condition exists according to a living principle – hence our own greed has become the insurmountable prices in our health care systems, our own desire for ‘more’ has turned into the obesity that the world is currently facing as a massive problem in countries where people have more than enough money to eat and subsumed in a culture of passivity and hedonism, while in other parts of the world the exact opposite happens and continues to expand at a massive rate. 

 

obamahealth

 

In countries where survival is all that exists, a culture of eating well, proper exercise, a proper relationship with oneself as our mind, physical body and our environment is not cultivated, simply because there’s no money or time for that. Do you think it is possible for someone in Syria at this moment to be concerned about this basic well being? Do you think that a person that is Starving is considering how to best take care of their bodies, watch what they eat and the quality of the water and air that they drink and breathe in? No, and we are all subsumed in this same survival system where the moment we see ourselves in a relationship of survival, it becomes absolutely impossible to conceive having time and means for ourselves to be in a healthy condition. This is also why you and I with relative stability and health conditions, must stand up for those that currently have no means or ways or strength to even conceive that life can be different for them as well.

 

Suggest reading the following blogs about the Drug Culture problem and all its facets since it is a tangible aspect many of us have experienced as an attempt to ‘fix’ that which has been inherently broken from the very beginning of our systems and social-organization in this world. This also includes that which we perceive as entertainment or a form of escapism from ‘the problems’ in this world which is the conditions in which we have accepted and allowed alcoholism, drug addictions, all forms of vices to become the ‘diversion’ and temporary high/ fix to the problems that we continue to create without getting to a solution, because the point of solution is Not going to be a band-aid but an absolute re-structure of ourselves as individuals that are the ones that will create the foundation for a sound living system in which all life can coexist in absolute harmony.

 

Addictions in the Equal Money System « Equal Money for ALL as LIFE

– The Bottom line is that the moment that we made of this Health System profit and of Life a business of self interest, everything turned into a system of abuse of which our very own physical bodies are currently having the most problems. As within, so without and so it is to expand the consideration of what it would really mean to Be healthy in this world not just defining it as in ‘not being physically sick,’ but start expanding our concept of health as this Entire Body of Existence as the Earth and every single living being in it.

    Equal Money implies that everyone has the same right to life and that everyone bears equal value as life. Within an Equal Money System Health Care will be available for all equally. No person will get more Health care than another. Each person will submit a request based on their medicinal and health care requirements, which will then be produced for each on a monthly basis. How this impacts within the health industry is that the health industry will submit that which it requires on a monthly basis and it is restocked on a monthly basis.

     

    Money will not be the motivation or set back of Health Care in an Equal Money System and therefore there will be no limitations to the possibilities for research and development. The Health Care professionals involved are provided for within the Equal Money System, therefore when they dedicate their time as labor, they do so because they understand what it means to participate in something that supports Society to live to our fullest.

Here is part of the  Equal Life Foundation’s Bill of Rights  dedicated to Monetary Integrity

1. An Equal Economic Right that insures that all financial needs are accessible and available to ensure that the fundamental requirements of a healthy and fulfilling life can be realized and manifested.
2. An Equal Health Right that provides all essentials to building strong physical embodiments, insuring vitality and well-being along with clarity of intellect, emotional balance and physical stability.

  • These are the ‘System’ solutions, however when walking through the understanding that we are having at the moment in terms of the actual cause of the diseases in our reality, Equal Money and Equal Life imply the necessary means and Education for all individuals not only to learn how to best feed ourselves, what types of activities are recommended to support our physical bodies, which aspects of our living conditions require to be corrected, aligned and so forth – but that initial living principled consideration of regarding all parts of this Earth as one single organism, and this consideration of being One and Equal is thus not only an ‘Ideal’ to keep in mind, but an actual living principle that must be made real as  a New Living System where all individuals are supported with money and being granted equal access to Health Care and any other living requirement, because we see, realize and understand that by caring for everyone’s well being within and without, we are creating also our own well being at an individual and collective level. Thus this is the new way to Conceive ourselves in our Reality, this is the actual Oneness and Equality placed in practical terms as a Human Right.

 

  • Health care will be expanded as a necessary organization that not only cares after Human Beings, but Animals, Plants, the Environments a whole because we directly depend on the entire Ecosystem’s well being. Thus, by ensuring we are informed about what we eat, what water we drink, how to be cook our food, what types of living environments and habits create a stability in our lives, we will generate an actual well being that no longer will be founded upon profit making schemes.

Rewards                                                              

  • Having no worry whatsoever on ending up with a massive debt in case you get sick or suddenly find yourself being involved in an accident, is a great gift of tranquility that we will grant each other wherein the suffering of those that have not been able to pay for their medical bills in the past will be recorded as part of the crimes against life that we will all ensure it is Never again manifested in this world.

 

  • All alternative healing systems and means of prevention will be studied and funded for science to actually create the necessary medical aid that is in fact able to support the body and not just ‘numb the pain’ of all the various ailments that human beings, animals, plants go through.

 

  • The FDA and other food and drug administrations in all the various countries will be instead a group of specialists that will genuinely care for all individuals to get the best quality products for our consumption and use. Because nothing will be based on profit but actual well being and creating healthy living conditions, we will all be able to share our experiences in order to produce the best products and give the best medical services, because technology and resources will be managed to fund this basic living support instead of being used for war devices or expanding production of non-essential products that further pollute or harm being’s lives.

 

  • No more Insurance companies that are a fraud to any individual that requires to ‘secure’ their health care and possible medical bills, they simply will cease to exist

 

  • Having a child from birth to death knowing that no matter what they will be granted equal support to Live in Dignity is the greatest tranquility, satisfaction and motivation to live and cooperate in a world system that does not leave a single child without food, water and the best environment to live in. This is our social responsibility yet at the same time our greatest reward, an actual happiness that is not defined by money but instead by giving to All as Equals as a Living Birth Right.

363. Housing is a Human Right | Equal Money

 

Having people existing without adequate housing – or no housing at all – in this world proves that any belief of us being  ‘evolved’ species is absolutely wrong. We still ponder money over each other’s basic necessities; meaning that we rather have opulence for a few and misery for the vast majority – every form of abuse and created lack in our world system is the reflection of our nature. Are we ready to prove we can in fact give to others the necessary infrastructure we require to Live in Dignity?

 

Continuing with:

 

Problem                                                  

  • A house is probably the ‘biggest thing’ a human being is meant to buy and sometimes strive to work for in an entire lifetime – we haven’t yet questioned how is it that our own household is not a given right but instead, a contract you enroll yourself with in order to secure your life and that of your children wherein most of the times, you end up paying a lot more than the original cost – unless you are rich and pay in one full cash payment – and even worse, pass on the mortgage to your kids if you don’t manage to do it in a lifetime.

 

  • The Right to adequate housing is a Human Right since 1948 as promulgated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – however as fundamental it is for all human beings, we still have over a billion people having no proper housing or No housing at all because no Government or any other International Organization has in fact secured this right by financially contributing to its realization.  This means that as long as we have the same world-system where money is more important than adequate living conditions for all living beings, we will fail to live in a world with actual happiness and well being, because we haven’t understood that we are interdependent, a social organism wherein the suffering and lack of one single individual affects the Whole.
    •  

      “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.”
      Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Article 25.1)

      http://www.unhabitat.org/

       

      Several constitutions explicitly refer to the right to adequate housing, including those of Belgium, Seychelles, South Africa and Uruguay. Other constitutions suggest a general responsibility of the State for ensuring adequate housing and living conditions for all.

      The Right to Adequate Housing

  • De jure, the right is well stated, de facto:

Townships in South Africa

Townships in South Africa

•    The right to adequate housing does NOT require the State to build housing for the entire population. One of the most common misconceptions associated with the right to adequate housing is that it requires the State to build housing for the entire population, and that people without housing can automatically demand a house from the Government. While most Governments are involved to some degree in housing construction, the right to adequate housing clearly does not oblige the Government to construct a nation’s entire housing stock. [….] the Government, rather than playing the role of housing provider, becomes the facilitator of the actions of all participants in the production and improvement of shelter

The Right to Adequate Housing

 

  • About 1.6 billion people live in substandard housing and 100 million are homeless
  • Each week, more than 1 million people are born in, or move to, cities in the developing world
  • One billion people (32 percent of the global urban population) live in urban slums
  • If no serious action were taken, the number of slum dwellers worldwide would increase over the next 30 years to nearly 2 billion

    http://www.habitat.org/how/why/

 

• By the year 2030, an additional 3 billion people, about 40 percent of the world’s population, will need access to housing. This translates into a demand for 96,150 new affordable units every day and 4,000 every hour. (UN-HABITAT: 2005)

 

Access to land is fundamental to adequate shelter. Having legal title to that land encourages families to invest and improve their homes and allows them to access credit and other public services such as water and electricity. Nearly one sixth of the world’s population is living without secure tenure (UN-HABITAT: 2008).

 

 

 

De Jure:

Constitution of Mexico, 1917 (as amended in 1983)
Article 4
[…] Every family has the right to enjoy decent and proper housing. The law shall establish the instruments and necessary supports to reach the said goal. […]

De Facto:

Mexico City, 2013

 

Foreclosure:

    • In the United States alone, 95 million people have housing problems.
      Including payments too large a percentage of their income, overcrowding, poor quality shelter and homelessness

 

  • Irresponsible home lending in the United States created a domestic housing bubble that, when it burst, helped to spark the global financial crisis.

    Property bubbles in Ireland and Spain left banks holding hundreds of billions of euros in bad debts, forcing governments to prop them up and then seek euro zone bailouts when the expense proved too much.

  • Across the nation, homeowners—many of them minorities—struggle to stay afloat as they watch their savings plummet and their dreams of maintaining a middle-class American lifestyle disappear. In its place are notices of default and the impending threat of bankruptcy.
    In California, a total of 65,466 homes are in the pipeline for foreclosure, many of them purchased before the housing market crash in 2007.
  • Of the 21 major California cities examined, more than eight in 10 homes in danger of foreclosure are in areas where at least half of its residents are minorities—evidence, the report’s authors say, that further supports the idea that the housing crisis has been particularly harmful to African-American and Hispanic homeowners.

 

  • Because of the Housing Bubble that burst in 2007, hardworking and middle class people’ have been evicted out of their homes due to their inability to pay their bills and mortgage on time. This is partly due to the greed that led people to refinance their homes in the belief that their property was going up in value, without realizing that it was never to their benefit but only a trick of the banks that financed all these loans. You require to have ‘good standing’ in your credit line in order to get loans yet you require sufficient income to create such ‘good credit’ and in that, most of the people end up not even getting access to such loans, which is a cul de sac that millions face every single day, aiming to earn more money to be able to be a candidate for a mortgage – which means, engaging in a larger debt… 

    The bottom line is that due to making of housing a business instead of a living right to be given without any form of interest, we are now witnessing the dismantling of the middle class forming part of the poverty line where only a few take advantage of the majority’s accepted and allowed contracts of death, which are all the mortgages that have become insolvent and inevitably leading people to live in tent cities now.

“To have a house or an apartment is not a luxury – it’s a basic necessity – everyone household should own one. Currently less than 10% of the South African population is capable of buying a house – one that isn’t made of mud and sticks.
So – how is it that we think it is okay to have a market force decide on the distribution of something as necessary as housing? Where we end up with only a 5th of the population having access to the funds to buy a house?

Day 212: Everyone Needs a House – Why is a House not Guaranteed? ~ Economist’s Journey to Life

 

  • It is unacceptable that we require corporate financial institutions a.k.a. Banks to decide who is in sufficient ‘good standing’ to get a loan to buy a house. They get to print the money for it and on top of that, make More money out of the interests that are generated within each and every single mortgage that people engage with in order to have a place to live.

Evictions

Read carefully:

The right to adequate housing does NOT prohibit development projects which could displace people. It is sometimes believed that the protection against forced evictions prohibits development or modernization projects that entail displacement.

The trauma experienced following a forced eviction can also impair a child’s capacity to attend classes. During forced evictions, people are frequently harassed or beaten and occasionally even subjected
to inhumane treatment or killed. Women and girls are particularly
vulnerable to violence, including sexual violence, before, during and after
an eviction.

The Right to Adequate Housing

 

  • There is no consideration when it comes to having urban developments and corporate settlements having all the necessary governmental support to build that which is profitable with the excuse of making our cities ‘look better/ be more efficient’; this also extends to having to reassign territories that are in political dispute than often lead to violent and extrapolated processes where people end up getting a notice of eviction in a matter of days without any opportunity to appeal to it, since most of the times these are houses where poor people live in. This demonstrates that the use of force along with the righteousness over those that have no means (money) to defend themselves from these processes is still a form of abuse justified with supposed urbanization, but why is then housing not part of this basic urban infrastructure provided for all living beings – this is in fact a human rights violation in the name of civilization that only a few get to benefit from.

Over 200 Farmers Risk Eviction
More than 200 farmers are at the risk of being left homeless after they were given an eviction order to vacate from their farms in Kenya

The locals protested the eviction of genuine land owners and the subdivision of the land so that it could be awarded to other people. Locals also claimed that they had owned the land for more than 15 years and had been given allotment letters by the government to prove their ownership.

They further stated that it would be unconstitutional for anyone to evict them from the land without a proper reason or compensation.

http://citizennews.co.ke/news/2012/local/item/9804-over-200-farmers-risk-eviction

 

  • If someone  or a corporation  decides that your little adobe house is standing in the way of a great project to build a shopping center, you the owner of your house, even if having the property documents in place, will be forced/ kicked out of your house because it is in the best interest of the city and corporation to give your space a ‘greater purpose’ such as building a supermarket or  new roads etc. One would be able to get to a decent agreement to in such case re-allocate people to an even better housing condition – yet this only exists in our ‘utopic dreams’ because most of these people are forced to see where they go in a matter of days, having to move their entire families, their personal belongings, their ‘history’ of having lived in a certain space – that could have even been given by previous governmental administrations as a form of housing support – yet it now can be taken away because ‘New Interests’ and urban planning happen to be envisioned in the area you and your house is occupying. They have no rights, no means to appeal, but only comply to the mandate of those with all the money/power to do this.  There are millions of heartbreaking stories like this, where people now enter a shopping mall, a museum, a road that once used to be the space they once called ‘Home.’

 

Discrimination

  • Discrimination means any distinction, exclusion or restriction made on the basis of the specific characteristics of an individual such as race, religion, age or sex, which has the effect or purpose of impairing or nullifying the recognition, enjoyment or exercise of human rights and fundamental freedoms. It is linked to the marginalization of specific population groups and is generally at the root of structural inequalities within societies.
    In housing, discrimination can take the form of discriminatory laws, policies or measures; zoning regulations; exclusionary policy development; exclusion from housing benefits; denial of security of tenure; lack of access to credit; limited participation in decision-making; or lack of protection against discriminatory practices carried out by private actors.

•   To sum up: Access to housing is most at risk for those denied the right to education, work or social security.

The Right to Adequate Housing

 

Vulnerable groups:

  • Victims of violations of the right to adequate housing often belong to the most marginalized and discriminated groups, such as the urban and rural poor, racial or ethnic minorities, indigenous peoples, irregular migrants, internally displaced persons or women. Providing legal aid can ensure that victims have access to remedies in cases related to the violation of the right to adequate housing. Otherwise, they might, for instance, have to choose between paying court fees and sending their children to school.
A. Women
B. Children
C. Slum-dwellers
D. Homeless persons
E. Persons with disabilities
F. Displaced persons and migrants
G. Indigenous peoples.

The Right to Adequate Housing

  • The specifics on each group are worth separate articles to exemplify the level of discrimination we have created  when it comes to our human ability to categorize and label people according to what we want to perceive they represent in a system where all values are separated from life itself, denying Equality as life.

 

Adequate Housing

  • The right to adequate housing includes ensuring access to
    adequate services. The right to adequate housing does not just mean that the structure of the house itself must be adequate. There must also be sustainable and non-discriminatory access to facilities essential for health, security, comfort and nutrition. For example, there must be access to safe drinking water, energy for cooking, heating, lighting, sanitation and washing facilities, means of storing food, refuse disposal, site drainage and emergency services.

-|The Right to Adequate Housing

  • States rather spend money on luxurious infrastructure to host corporations, industrial compounds and shopping centers than investing in these basic components of what should be a right to every single individual to benefit from – instead we have over 1 billion people without toilets in this world without even pondering what consequences that creates at a Health care level.

 

  • Try the following for yourself: spend one single day without water, without keys to your home, without a proper toilet, without electricity, without the security that your four walls no matter how great or small they are they give you, I guarantee you that all your focus and attention will be toward ‘getting the water back’ and ‘getting the electricity back’ and doing anything you can to get back into your house. It is impossible to conceive we are creating this perpetual state of fear in which Millions of people around the world “live” in – yet we have all our tax money being spent in Wars, paying excessive salaries to politicians who are the ones that are supposed to guarantee all of this – well, now you may know: it is not their obligation to guarantee these things to you and it’s not in their best interest either, which proves that we are existing in the current situation because we have accepted and allowed it.

    • States have an obligation to prohibit and eliminate discrimination on all grounds and ensure de jure and de facto equality in access to adequate housing and protection against forced eviction

The Right to Adequate Housing

  • Having a place to live in will no longer be defined by having or not having money, having or not having sufficient ‘credit reputation’ to do so. With Equal Money along with Equal Life Foundation, the Right to Have a House will be guaranteed by each individual through the necessary managerial organizations – government/ commissions/ organizations  that we the people will establish as the way to ensure that all resources, all basic needs and services are enjoyed by every single individual in this world. This will be possible and a reality in comparison to what we have now based on the fact that Money will be redefined to stop existing as a system of debt and ‘Mortgage’ in itself, and instead become a Rights Document as a Counting Tool to ensure that everyone gets Equal Money as a guaranteed access to housing and all the services entailed within it. This means that:

 

4. An Equal Housing Right that assures every being and every family a stable home environment that is nurturing and supportive of life, properly founded within communities that assist and support a life of dignity and integrity.

Equal Life Foundation

 

  • There will be no ‘disadvantaged groups’ since all human beings and living beings will be Equal by Constitutional Equality. This means that nor money or a particular tag imposed to a group of people will be a limitation for people to benefit from the best living conditions we can all cooperate to create. By having access to the materials, tools, people and information to build, we will be able to choose what our house can be like in accordance to that which is sustainable and common sensical when it comes to the use of space, people living in it and the main purposes that we will require according to our needs. All National Laws will be applied within the consideration of the Equal Life Bill of Rights which declares the minimum yet best living standards that all individuals will be supported with.

 

  • Everyone will be able to have a house to live in without having to enroll in any form of mortgage or financing process that ends up in endless cycles of debt and increasing interest rates, since money in itself and the financial/banking systems won’t exist within Debt and Interest fictions, instead Money becomes the surety of our Rights by virtue of defining money as the right to Life in Equality which means granting each other access to what we require to live as well as ensuring that we are the ones that create the necessary methods to best make use of money to acquire the necessary materials and/or remunerate those that support with building processes. This will imply that building houses will become a basic skill that will also be taught in school, since it is essential for all individuals to have the means and ways to build our basic foundation to live in dignity, which is a house along with all the services required to make it an adequate housing.

  • The Equal Life Foundation in conjunction with Governments upon the Equal Money System’s implementation will ensure that every single aspect of adequate housing is in fact being implemented. All individuals will be able to monitor these processes by publishing all the data that will us all about the housing processes around the world. We will even be able to proceed to collaborate to, for example, support with building houses in places where there are No houses at the moment – such as all the Southern pole of this globe that is mostly subsumed in poverty. We will focus on first dignifying the lives of those that lack and then proceed to upgrade everyone’s living standards: those in extreme need come first.

 

  • Housing implies proper and adequate habitat for all living species which means that taking care of our Rights to proper Housing extend to ensuring that this World, Our Home, our Planet Earth is also an adequate and most well suited living space for all the billions of living beings – Animals, Plants, Minerals, Air –  that populate this Earth; this is their home, we have abused the environment and consequentially them as well for far too long – this is their planet as well and so we commit ourselves to become the Guardians of the Ecosystem which is our Collective Home – one and equal.  

 

     

    The Fifth Fundamental Human Right is that: Every Human Being Requires a Place to Live, a Roof over their head, a Home, a House. The Human is Not Designed to Live out in Nature. The Human Requires a particular Known Way of Protection: a House. Housing is Not Negotiable when it comes to Human Rights, there is No Way that Anyone that has a House can Claim that their Right to a House is more than another and that they have a Right to Allow Others to Sleep on the Streets or to have No Place that they can call ‘Their Own.’ Thus, a Home You Can Call ‘Your Own’ is a Basic Human Right, which is part of the Fundamental Nature of the Human Being, the Actual Human Nature which is: You need Food, you need Water, you need a Home.

                  Rewards                                                              

                  • No single individual or living being will be denied the right to proper living conditions. homelessness, more financial housing bubbles, no more mortgages, no more evictions, no racial or immigrant status discrimination, no more cheaply constructed buildings attempting to be ‘adequate housing’ – it will be in our hands and our own skills that we will be able to take care of the construction of the place we live in without any budget restriction, since all materials required to build houses will be given by virtue of having the right to build a house. Therefore it will be our responsibility to build our houses according to the ways and designs that we decide are most convenient for ourselves. There will be different spaces for different geographic and resource-based needs – this will all be possible as long as we ensure that not a single individual is left behind without having the same opportunity to also decide what is best for them to live in.

                   

                  • Neighborism means “Loving Thy Neighbor as Thyself” = No more violence or sudden expropriation of the place you live in. Your house will be the place wherein you will be able to ensure that yourself, your children, your neighbors are in fact living in harmony and genuine enjoyment of sharing an environment that one is no longer fearing to lose or expecting to sell to get more money, this is about developing the best living stability that we can once that we will no longer be limited by money to create the best environment we want our future generations to come and live in.

                  361. Food is a Human Right | Equal Money

                  There is sufficient food and resources for everyone to have the necessary daily and sustainable supply of quality nourishment to live and support our physical bodies in the best way possible. The problems are corporate interests and a rigged system that doesn’t grant access to this Basic Human Right. Money in Equal Money is a rights document that ensures all individuals are given money/access to  buy the necessary food to fulfill a healthy quality living standard that is best for all, including animals and sustainability of the Earth’s resources.

                  Problem                                              

                  • People around the globe Lack Food due to the configuration of our current economic system designed to only benefit a minority while leaving the majority out of the picture of dignified living conditions and equal living standards:

                    • “The population of the US, Canada, and the EU combined. The number of malnourished people worldwide is just under 1 billion people – nearly a seventh of the global population.”

                  (Source:State of Food Insecurity in the World,FAO, 2012)

                   

                    The vast majority of hungry people (98 percent) live in developing countries, where almost 15% of the population is undernourished.

                        A third of al child deaths are linked to hunger

                         

                         

                         

                        World Hunger                                                      

                          • There are 1 Billion undernourished people in the world today. That means one in eight people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life. Hunger and malnutrition are in fact the number one risk to the health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
                          • Among the key causes of hunger are natural disasters, conflict, poverty, poor agricultural infrastructure and over-exploitation of the environment.
                          • As well as the obvious sort of hunger resulting from an empty stomach, there is also the hidden hunger of micronutrient deficiencies which make people susceptible to infectious diseases, impair physical and mental development, reduce their labour productivity and increase the risk of premature death.
                          • Hunger does not only weigh on the individual. It also imposes a crushing economic burden on the developing world. Economists estimate that every child whose physical and mental development is stunted by hunger and malnutrition stands to lose 5-10 percent in lifetime earnings.

                         

                        it costs 25 us cents per day to giv a child all thenutrients needed to grow up healthy

                        “It takes only $0.25 for the World Food Programme to give a hungry schoolchild a cup of nutritious food. $50 will feed a child at school for an entire year.”

                        There is more money spent on War than on Food

                         

                         

                          • Hunger also weakens the immune system. Deprived of the right nutrition, hungry children are especially vulnerable and become too weak to fight off disease and may die from common infections like measles and diarrhoea. Each year, almost 7 million children die before reaching the age of five; malnutrition is a key factor is over a third of these deaths

                        WHO 

                        • Most of the world’s hungry live in developing countries. According to the latest Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) statistics, there are 870 million hungry people in the world and 98 percent of them are in developing countries.  They are distributed like this:
                        • 578 million in Asia and the Pacific
                          239 million in Sub-Saharan Africa
                          53 million in Latin America and the Caribbean
                          37 million in the Near East and North Africa
                        • 19 million in developed countries

                         

                          • Hungry farmers
                          • FAO calculates that around half of the world’s hungry people are from smallholder farming communities,  surviving off marginal lands prone to natural disasters like drought or flood. Another 20 percent belong to landless families dependent on farming and about 10 percent live in communities whose livelihoods depend on herding, fishing or forest resources.
                          • The remaining 20 percent live in shanty towns on the periphery of the biggest cities in developing countries. The numbers of poor and hungry city dwellers are rising rapidly along with the world’s total urban population.

                         

                          • Women
                          • Women are the world’s primary food producers, yet cultural traditions and social structures often mean women are much more affected by hunger and poverty than men. A mother who is stunted or underweight due to an inadequate diet often give birth to low birthweight children.
                          • Around 50 per cent of pregnant women in developing countries are iron deficient (source: Unicef). Lack of iron means 315,000 women die annually from hemorrhage at childbirth. As a result, women, and in particular expectant and nursing mothers, often need special or increased intake of food.

                         

                          • Rural risk
                          • Three-quarters of all hungry people live in rural areas, mainly in the villages of Asia and Africa. Overwhelmingly dependent on agriculture for their food, these populations have no alternative source of income or employment. As a result, they are vulnerable to crises. Many migrate to cities in their search for employment, swelling the ever-expanding populations of shanty towns in developing countries.

                         

                         

                        WHY

                        • Nature

                          Natural disasters such as floods, tropical storms and long periods of drought are on the increase — with calamitous consequences for food security in poor, developing countries.

                         

                        • War
                        • From Asia to Africa to Latin America, fighting displaces millions of people from their homes, leading to some of the world’s worst hunger emergencies. Since 2004, conflict in the Darfur region of Sudan has uprooted more than a million people, precipitating a major food crisis — in an area that had generally enjoyed good rains and crops.

                         

                        • In war, food sometimes becomes a weapon. Soldiers will starve opponents into submission by seizing or destroying food and livestock and systematically wrecking local markets. Fields and water wells are often mined or contaminated, forcing farmers to abandon their land.

                         

                        • When conflict threw Central Africa into confusion in the 1990s, the proportion of hungry people rose from 53 percent to 58 percent. By comparison, malnutrition is on the retreat in more peaceful parts of Africa such as Ghana and Malawi.

                         

                        • Agricultural infrastructure
                        • In the long-term, improved agricultural output offers the quickest fix for poverty and hunger.

                         

                        • All conspire to limit agricultural yields and access to food.

                         

                        • Too many developing countries lack key agricultural infrastructure, such as enough roads, warehouses and irrigation. The results are high transport costs, lack of storage facilities and unreliable water supplies.

                         

                        • But, although the majority of developing countries depend on agriculture, their governments economic planning often emphasizes urban development.

                         

                        • Over-exploitation of environment

                          Poor farming practices, deforestation, overcropping and overgrazing are exhausting the Earth’s fertility and spreading the roots of hunger.
                        • Increasingly, the world’s fertile farmland is under threat from erosion, salination and desertification.

                         

                          • Poverty Trap
                          • In developing countries, farmers often cannot afford seed to plant the crops that would provide for their families. Craftsmen lack the means to pay for the tools to ply their trade. Others have no land or water or education to lay the foundations for a secure future.

                         

                        • This is the result of seed control imposed by corporations like Monsanto that ensure farmers become mere labor force to produce food that is in accordance to an agenda of privatization, genetic modification, resource control and further contamination that is leading farmers to the point of suicide when realizing the contracts that they are forced to sign if they want to keep themselves ‘in business’ – The same happens with the monopolization of food distribution that leads to massive profits to a few chains that have all control of products that we consume where not only price but also the quality and conditions of our meals are being corrupted in order to fulfill more profit-making agendas where any form of actual care for our health is overridden by the need to control and generate more money out of a basic human need, which is food

                        • Food is a Fundamental Human Right and it must be granted to every individual by Constitutional Right where all Human Beings are given access to all foods and  nutrients to live a healthy and fulfilling life. This is possible due to understanding that all Resources of the Earth must be Equally distributed/ given access to all inhabitants of the planet in order to feed ourselves properly. It is a certainty that lacking resources is not the problem, but rather the system of power and control that would not grant all equal access to this – this will be solved through the implementation of Equal Money where your money is your access to that which we require to live  in the best possible condition.

                         

                         
                        In an Equal Money System, Food will be a Basic Human Right. Food will no longer be detrimentally linked to money, where money decides the availability and quality of food and transparency of information. Food will no longer be tool for Profit but a Source of Life.
                        Day 204: Food Monopoly and Equal Money Capitalism

                         

                        • Equal Money Capitalism: Your work will enable you to earn money to buy the best quality food available existent in a system where profit won’t define the type of food you obtain, instead the highest quality standards will be implemented to know exactly what it is that we are consuming and how it has been produced from the moment of extraction to its final distribution center. This is part of the necessary transparency to ensure no hidden agendas are integrated in the very foods we eat. There won’t be privatization of resources, but organized labor to extract and produce sufficient food to ensure it is enough for everyone in the world in a sustainable basis.

                         

                        • We realize that providing a fulfilling diet for all individuals increases the ability for human beings to be well developed as well as improving performance in educational processes. All Children will have access to food from the moment of conception, gestation in the mother’s womb to ensures proper development,we understand that healthy mothers and children are the foundation of the preventive measures to eradicate diseases, virus and weaker immunologic systems. Information about proper nutrition will also go hand in hand with necessary education for parents to know how to feed their child in all various stages of their growth and development.

                         

                        • Quality foods will be a global standard that will form part of the global transparency to disclose all processes involved in food production, labeling of products to inform the people what is exactly being consumed – this means that many of our products will have to be reconfigured and reassessed according to its actual nutrimental value as opposed to mere profit-making products that do more harm than any good.

                         

                        • Food Safety: By Legal determination, all proven to be Cancerous substances, toxic chemicals, pollutants, fertilizers, genetically modified seeds and any other form of deliberate intervention to our food that is detrimental for living beings’ health will cease to exist once that we, the people of the world, ensure that our food is purified and reconfigured to be of actual support and is safe for every individual that consumes it – this is part of the de-monopolization process that will take place once that profit is no longer the driving force in our world system and corporations cease to have power over what we eat.  Instead providing quality healthy foods will be the standard that is sustained, guarded and supervised by all individuals as it is part of our collective responsibility to never again allow tyrant corporations to take control of our food, crops and distribution of it.  All necessary research to reverse these effects will form part of the restoration of our directive principle upon the food that we eat.

                         

                        • Consumption habits will be taught to parents and teachers where our food preferences will be transformed to be of actual support in accordance to physical body requirements. Diets will be given to every person and caretaker of minors to ensure that by virtue of having equal access to food, the nutritional requirements are given to all as an actual Human Right – this means that the Access to Food that we in fact Require is part of the new way in which we will ensure that everyone has the necessary means to live well. It will depend on each one’s work and further consumption preferences to buy extra treats, but the basics will be granted as a basic necessity that will be covered by default – this is the real end of Hunger.

                         

                        • The Government’s function – which will be any individual that wants to cooperate with supervision purposes to ensure all food production and distribution is optimized in an best for all manner. This will include designating the necessary resources for scientific and agricultural research to enhance food production technologies, optimize it and restore it to function in accordance to the natural cycles of the Earth, along with necessary corrections for further resource efficiency in all the processes involved in food production – this will include rehabilitation of eroded and ‘dead fields’ to be suitable for crops again, as well as providing the necessary infrastructure and education for people in places where food has not been grown due to lack of resources.

                         

                        • We will all support with Food Production according to the laws of physical supply and demand which means there are no market forces that determine the availability of food, it will be a process of logistics, human labor/work force, technology, transportation, distribution and sustainability at an ecological level what will be taken into consideration to ensure that food is guaranteed to all 7 billion people in this Earth – it is possible, we simply have to create the necessary infrastructure to do so in order to guarantee the application of the Fundamental Human Right to grant Food to all individuals equally.

                          The Third Fundamental Human Right is that: Every Human, Fundamentally, Requires Food to Exist, Food to Have a Life on Earth and therefore, Food (which is primarily, actually, a Substance that is Produced by the Earth for Free, to a degree – except for the Human Labour part) –

                          Food is the Third Basic Human Right. Without Food, Nobody can Exist. The very moment Food becomes a Scarcity that is Used for Control, one Actually Produce and Change the Human into the Behavior of a Slave-Master Relationship and there exist No Human Right in that Relationship.

                        • Knowing with certainly what we are consuming/ drinking is the greatest safety measure we can co-create by working as a team that ensures only what is best for all is conducted in our food production processes. Food labeling will be an imperative requirement as well as providing the necessary nutritional education as mentioned to ensure that no underweight or overweight is produced – this will go hand in hand with removing products containing substances that are only meant to create addictions, like too much sugar, artificial flavors and growth enhancements, since the starting point of our food will be to nurture ourselves, not to make money out of it. Ensuring your child will be given the best quality foods is ensuring a lifetime of healthy habits and conditions – this is only possible if we all cooperate to become equal supervisors of how our food is produced, packaged and distributed.

In a world where Life is Recognized and Valued in Equality we will all instead cooperate to ensure that the countries  and regions of the world with most lack are the ones that obtain the immediate support to stop and eradicate world hunger.
