291. First Learn to Love thy Thyself

There’s one condition that we must learn in order to make an Equality System function, and that is learning to serve all, and this is not in a subservient position, but as an actual process of redefining the word we’ve worked with in the past blogs, learning how to understand that within a giving and receiving condition there will be no need to place particular different values onto people according to ‘what they do’ and create relationships of convenience, but instead learn how to appreciate everyone’s work in equality, because such equal appreciation and value toward everyone’s contribution is what makes a community/ society thrive.  And what a better way to do this than establishing an economical system wherein no matter what work you do, you’ll get enough to live in dignity, because you’ll receive equal profit share, ensuring that we all get a piece of the cake and no one is left behind.

Continuing from:

For context on redefining capitalism, read: Day 180: The Word ‘Capitalism’ in ‘Equal Money Capitalism Redefined

 

If we take the example of ‘self-sufficient communities,’ even if they are living in a belief of ‘being outside of the system,’ they do have certain benefits that most of the people in our current contemporary ‘financial capitals’ lack, which is the sense of Neighborism and within this, the way we give and receive our own work means that there is no money-value factor determining ‘how I feel’ about my work, but instead it becomes the who I am as a living participant in a certain community/ environment, directing oneself to do the work one decides to do that is supportive and required to make this system sustainable, and be remunerated in equal manner. This is what determines the real value and outcome as a physical contribution to the sustainability and betterment of society. People will stop hating each other, but instead remove the barrier money has placed between each other and learn to value the reality of who we are and what we do in reciprocity.

 

For example, Love is an energetic experience in the mind, people say ‘Do things with love and love will come back to you tenfold’ but this is absolutely conditional in order to ‘make myself feel loved’ which is only at an individual level without considering how, if I have no money to do/contribute, if I have no opportunity to ‘give such love,’ then my feelings and mind experience will be futile. Hence, money is a realistic way to give such love through giving access to the means, the education, the tools, the time and the available space to develop ourselves as co-participants in society, and collaborating in that which we enjoy doing or would like to develop our skills further in. Currently, many people would not be washing cars, toilettes, working in jails, prostitution, McJobs, mobs, selling drugs, selling useless products on the streets and well, virtually any of our current fast-production of junk companies and job positions that do not dignify human life at all, but rather underestimate it, reducing it to the level of ‘cheap labor’ to produce the most profit for a few. We all realize how this single fact of ‘how things are’ affects our psychological experience on a day to day basis, which is why the rate of suicides is every increasing, the use of alcohol, drugs, and anything else that can be bought with Money that they hardly earn through hard work. What a perfect system it is for those that benefit the most from it, giving money and then getting it back through the consumption and purchasing of products that they also own.

 

If we want to end this dread-world, there is a definitive action that must take place. If we truly want to give love to others, we have to grant each other equal access to that which enables our well being, our means to be productive, secure and gentle with each other when there’s no more ‘fight for survival,’ and dogs stops eating the world, and that’s Money.

 

Maybe you have experienced yourself the same way I have, wherein I see people’s tedious, repetitive jobs and see how I am directly responsible for what they’re doing and experiencing. An example, there’s people in the corner shop that stand there from 9 am till 10 pm. For me to be able to go there at whatever time I want to get my stuff, they require to be there the whole time, sure they take shifts, but I can tell that it is a family business and these guys that are around my age are probably not going to any school/ education because of having to work, furthermore they can be using weed to be able to withstand spending their time behind the counter the whole time. This can even be considered a decent job, we can go further to people that have to work 12 hours a day to make little to nothing to live, and their work enables me to wear clothes, have my computer, my shoes and have a pile of stuff around me that I proudly bought with my money, having No idea whose life is involved in it.

 

The same with the people that takes care of harvesting and producing food – what or who decided that some would have to be Bound to such jobs with no other alternative and me having the ability to ‘freely choose what I want to do’? Within this premise, how can we deny the responsibility we hold toward every person’s condition in this world, even those that I am not ‘benefitting from’ obviously, like people that starve and have no chance to get ‘into the system,’ their direct exclusion has to do with having to shorten the possibilities of a ‘good life’ for only a minority of people.

 

No matter how much Love I could ‘feel’ for the people that suffer, I won’t manifest a steady job that enables them to live.  Here we can see how it’s mostly self interest to FEEL Love myself as it is never even about ‘them’ but the idea that I create within me of ‘giving love’ and as such creating any form of difference for them, is it, really?

 

So, Loving Thy Neighbor as Thyself in an Equality System is giving to each other what we want for ourselves, and that’s linked to the quality of goods and services that we can create within the consideration that No One will be enslaved to produce heaven for us, we All will be contributing on equal manner doing what we are most glad and prone to do and develop  our skills in. This is then a real process of learning how to Love thy Neighbor as Thyself  and for that, we first have to Begin with ourselves and ponder: What’s best for me that can be applied to everyone equally? What kind of work/skill/occupation can I see that I would be most productive and supportive at? This is where we give ourselves a real carte blanche to Design and Create the way that we can practically envision ourselves in a future where everyone has equal real opportunity to live in dignity, and a future that begins with ourselves of course, redefining what we do currently, looking at Why we do it, what motivates us and what we could instead do if we all support a new system wherein the disposition of money is not only left in profitable businesses that have no human-dignity impressed on them and are only existent because of sheer quick profit. That will cease to exist, you might agree that we’re only allowing that because we’ve seen ourselves as separate from and not responsible for making the decision of what we eat, what we work on, the type of activities that we support and the type of products that we produce and consume.

 

Who else but ourselves can decide what’s best for all through a consensus of making an agreement to care for each other as equals, learn how to Self Forgive the lack of condescendence, the apathy, the negligence and deliberate ignorance to the current situation billions of people are going through around the world, as a result of a minority having the ‘great life’ without realizing that as long as there’s one single person without a job opportunity, without an activity that allows them to fend for themselves and their family, we are ostracizing them into oblivion, which means: misery , suffering and ultimately, death. We have the power to decide what’s best for all, and no this is not just ‘thinking positive,’ this is practically looking at recognizing that the unthinkable is possible if we place our hands at a political level to change the way things work around in this world.

This begins by letting go of the flimsy ideals that love and good will represent and actually come to embody such words in practical and tangible solutions, which implies supporting the implementation of the Equality system that will enable Life to be lived in equality. This begins by walking an individual process wherein we Learn how to Love ourselves first, how to become living beings that take self responsibility for our lives, our minds, our words, deeds and actions and as such, correct ourselves to be and become a living example of what it is to value Life in equality which means obviously redefining our participation and our starting point of living here, not to ‘be or become’ more than what we already are, but learning how to support, care and enjoy each other as equals, learning how to make of money a means/ a tool to establish a dignified living condition instead of making it a goal and an end in itself.

        289. Our Lives as Money-Making Machines

         

        Did you chose your profession based on your vocation/preference to it or because of the amount of money you’d make out of it?  How will this change if everyone go the same profit no matter what job you have?

         

        Recapitulating, we’re going word by word in a very basic definition of Capitalism to redefine it, explore it and see what each word means and how we are able to re-direct every aspect of this collective agreement into a Best for All system.

         

        Capitalism is an economic system that is based on private ownership of capital goods and the means of production, and the creation of goods and services for profit.[1][2] Elements central to capitalism include capital accumulation,competitive markets, and a price system.[3]

        Services:  

         

        Services: Intangible products such as accounting, banking, cleaning, consultancy, education, insurance, expertise, medical treatment, or transportation.

        Sometimes services are difficult to identify because they are closely associated with a good; such as the combination of a diagnosis with the administration of a medicine. No transfer of possession or ownership takes place when services are sold, and they cannot be stored or transported, are instantly perishable, and  come into existence at the time they are bought and consumed.

        What has become of Social Reciprocity?

        What’s interesting about ‘Services’ is that it is in fact the very human component of our economy that makes everything function in our society, it is the ‘life’ that requires producing and consuming the goods and services that are entailed within the definition of ‘living’ within this world, which is implying maintaining our environment, our body and the relationships with one another in a mint condition.

        Current services we have range from processing data to cleaning,  translating, accountancy, security, body hair removal, dental hygienist, hospitality industry, real state, sex services, performing arts,  social work, transportation, customer service, plumbing, coroners, diplomacy, lawyers, janitors, childcare, catering and the public utility ones such a water, electricity, waste management, telecommunications, gas – all of this is what makes a society functional, however, many of these jobs/professions/activities currently are not paid equally, which implies that a janitor will make less money than the person providing a medical service – and this is where one considers the amount of money/time that a doctor spent on their studies to perform their job while seemingly a janitor only requires physical force to do his/her job. However, it is quite obvious that both are equally important, since both are required for a functional living condition. A doctor would not be able to perform a surgery in an untidy place, and that would make his job impossible without having the basic hygiene in place.

         

         

        Where’s the ‘natural vocation’ to perform a service?

        There’s also been a creation of needs that lead to the creation of services has been a result of existing in a debt-economy, wherein people would always seek to create more money to pay their initial debt and as such, there is this constant need to ‘make money’ to be able to pay for basic necessities and interest rates from initial investment in learning/ acquiring licenses to perform any form of service as well as paying for basic needs and bills. People then would opt for providing services that would ‘make a lot of money’ wherein there’s no real human component of them being truly willing to perform such task as a point of expression, but rather only focusing on the final pay for it.  I am sure that not many people were born being willing to guard someone’s back and risking their lives to protect another person that is considered ‘important’ due to the value they represent as an asset themselves –all your elite people – however, that’s a way for the person to have a stable income and provide for their family, because maybe he/she had no opportunity to study to have an equal opportunity to become a lawyer, even if their skills would show that he/she would be good at it – this is what we mean by having forced ourselves into slavery, because we are performing jobs that we really do not want to do, but Have-to in order to get money.

         

         

        No matter what service you give, you’ll be equally remunerated

        This has reduced our lives to single commodities wherein the majority of the people ended up doing a certain job/profession that they really didn’t want to do. Some others might have ended up studying to become a doctor when their passion was to take care after peoples’ dogs, and some people that were managers in great corporations would have been happier if they could become a construction worker and physically work to build houses. Someone might prefer to provide cleaning services than working to study to become an accountant, because they’re really good at it and they find it non-stressful, they will get equal profit as the company’s accountant – is that fair? Yes, of course, both human beings have the same needs, live in the same world, using the same services.

         

        One aspect that would amaze me from first world countries is knowing that gardeners, plumbers, landscapers, janitors were paid well enough to have the money to travel around with their entire family and have a fairly decent lifestyle, while me being in a ‘third world country,’ our gardener would mostly be part of a lower-rank in society, without any form of social security or working benefits that anyone should have by virtue of being existing within the same social system where basic rights to goods and services must be a recognition of the individual being part of this reality, as simple as that. Our gardener actually stopped being an electrician to dedicate himself to gardening as a full time job, and he was the best gardener in our entire neighborhood until the day he died – was he happier working with plants than electricity cables? Yes – would he make more money being a gardener than an electrician? Doubtful.

         

        Charles Eisenstein in his book Sacred Economics identifies how services are social reciprocity that has been turned into a commodity in our current economic model, which is definitely so, as he mentions ‘we can always pay someone else to do it’ and within that, the consideration of a person’s contribution in a particular area in our reality becomes another replaceable job that exists within the realms of competitiveness and pricing. This leads to other psychological dysfunctions such as depression, aversion and hostility when a person is performing a job that they simply Do Not Want to perform.

         

         

        Slave Labor will Not be a “Service”

        There are several services right now that will have to cease to exist, because they have been the result of slavery, a tradition in itself that we’ve come to ‘adapt’ into our society without a second thought of what it is actually entailed in paying someone to clean Your house and take care of Your children.  This is a service that currently exists because many people have to work and have no time to take care of their own cleaning and children themselves. Even if they do have the time, having a maid becomes quite a comfortable situation for the person that requires the service. We all know and understand that girls are pushed to leave their homes – specially rural communities – in order to ‘come to the city and make big money to take back to their families,’ which implies an entire process of living away from their environment – leaving family, friends, communal activities of socialization behind – refraining themselves most of the times from finishing any form of proper education and mostly ending up making enough money to escape with their boyfriends, or go to ‘the other side’ to make more money in even more exploitative jobs, and this is all because of Money.

        These housekeeping services are not regulated, people do not get social security guarantees for supporting in house-work, they are not regulated by proper contracts, which makes of these jobs rather unstable and insecure when it comes to having someone that is not of your family, not of  your immediate neighborhood living inside your house, being there as part of your family yet doing the chores that every single member of such family/house environment should perform. That’s common sense, but, we haven’t seen it in such a way because of the Power that money has to pay someone to do something we are mostly not educated to do as part of our Living Responsibility.

         

        In this example, many factors must be considered such as people’s willingness to clean their houses, which will determine how big their houses will be, it will create a necessity for each inhabitant contributing to the cleaning and taking care of their own use of the house, rooms, dishes, distributing the gardening work, cooking, etc. Work distribution in itself is a way to cover these slave-jobs as maids that we currently have made ‘indispensable’ simply because of the known-fact of being able to pay someone to do it – plus, people won’t be working such a great amount of hours a day to not have the time to take care of the basic maintenance themselves. 

         

        In terms of ‘maids,’  I am certain that if these girls in rural communities are equally supported with Education, they won’t be aspiring to ‘go to to the city to make a living there’ but will most likely remain in their communities and develop their lives providing a service/ working to support in their locality, there is no ‘natural disposition’ for any being to go and live in someone else’s house to support them with their own responsibilities, and from this perspective we can see what is a forced job and what isn’t.

         

         

        People go to ‘the other side’ as we know mostly people from the south hemisphere of the Earth going up north to make more money, even if their job goes from taking care of children and cleaning houses in a rich family’s compound to working 8-12 hours a day in factory or crops, essentially work that has been diminished to ‘slave labor’ because of the same predisposition we have all created within our society, wherein physical/real/tough activities are Less remunerated than those jobs that are related to ‘intellectual’ work, which in fact should not go now to the ‘opposite’ and be less rewarded, but simply considered as equally valued and vital as the very physical work that is the one that makes such managing/ accounting possible in the first place.

         

        So, there can be Many examples to see how we have separated ourselves from our drive to live and contribute to our communities in a way that is best for all, just because of having to subjugate this preference of ‘living skill’ to a real need/requirement for money/ making enough  to live, and this is where Equal Money Capitalism will generate a new way of looking at/considering jobs to provide services in our society, because everyone will be obtaining equal-profit from any position they have within any economic activity, and this is what will restore that initial sense of community and social reciprocity wherein people will be working to the best of their abilities, because there is no more competition or survival-conditions for them to become someone they don’t want to, which means we won’t have any more unsatisfied, depressed, tired looking people doing jobs that only generate money to then make more money and within this money-aim all sense of being alive is lost.

         

         

        Serving Life in Equality 

         

        Services will have to be restored to being the impetus of collaboration, cooperation and self-drive to contribute to that which benefits the whole, the community, wherein no job will be ‘less than’ others, wherein no more competition will drive people to hate each other to get a certain job or position, since there will be no restriction from a person opting to study to become a doctor than educating themselves to become a gardener, it will be a matter of seeing what they are really willing to contribute with and actually enjoy doing.

         

        All services that contributed to support slavery or any other human denigration based on the need for money will cease to exist.This will imply no more child labor, prostitution, drug dealing, clandestine animal killings, home maids, hired-killers and various other deliberately abusive/harmful activities will cease to exist, because there will be no reason for them to exist in the first place if one will not be able to make ‘more profit’ by producing ‘cheap goods,’ because pricing will no longer be an aspect that represents ‘more profit’ but equal profit at all times. You won’t require to send your kids to work because they will have access to education and you as a parent will always have a job to provide for your family.

         

        There will be no need for prostitution if people learn how to establish proper agreements/ relationships based on mutual support, not self interest or any other pushed convenience by societal-norms. Drug-dealing, which can be a 24 hour service, will cease to exist in a world where people won’t seek to get ‘high’ to ‘escape reality’ any longer, but instead learn how to Live and enjoy every waking day of our lives. The same with killing that is always the outcome of some mental pathology that will be prevented with proper education of children from the moment of inception until they are suited well enough to continue a living-pattern of dedicating one’s life to Live and honor each other as equals, where there will be no passion crimes, no vengeance acts to ‘kill someone’ and get away with murder.

        Our lives will be fully dedicated to giving and receiving in Equality, which implies that there will be many transformations taking place in order to equalize the value of ourselves and what we do within the understanding of our interrelatedness as an economic organism where every single person must have equal right to exist and be equally supported to do so in the best way that we are able to. This all begins at the level of introspecting about our own life and finding out how we can re-direct/ redefine what we do and why we do it in a world wherein Money won’t be a goal in itself, but a means to learn how to live.
