I posted this in response to some comments about a blog post from the blog Economist’s Journey to Life, which you can read here: Day 137: Greece: The Birth and Death of Democracy. And I do suggest to read it, as it’s a really great post taking a look at a documentary (which you’ll find linked there) exposing the effects of Privatization within the situation that is now taking place in European countries like Greece. My response is in regards to the point mentioned toward the end of the blog post, which mentions that there is a way out of the economic problems going on in the world, and it’s not so much a ‘way out’ as it is a ‘way in’ – as it’s to get into the Political system, and correct the system from within. This received some comments in response, where this blog post was posted on Reddit, in which the point of ‘the system is corrupt and thus you can’t use it or be a part of it without also being corrupted” is brought up as a reason/justification to not get involved in the political system. I decided to share my response here on my blog, to share these perspectives for consideration and to educate as to the current situation we’re facing, and the opportunity we have currently available to make change, and why it is that this change must currently come through becoming involved in the political system.

“Changing the system from without has been tested. If you study history of revolts you see none has made a real change for a better world as we still exist in worldwide wage-slavery, poverty, starvation, war exist, and more atrocities, more than ever. The system is too big to change from the outside, and people’s ‘livelihoods’ are directly attached to the system, and that’s why there is always plenty to defend the system against those that would stand against it, which is always a small percentage, as most are way too afraid and choose to stick with the relative comfort of the system. This is why militaries/armies exist, because people are desperate for financial security and so can be paid to kill each other. Thus why any revolt that stands out as a threat to the system-supporting public, is going to get ‘put down’. It’s just like how a human being immune system function, anything that ‘stands out’ as a threat to the bodily system, gets attacked and ‘immunized’. The system as it is has been placed in such a way that we could work within it to produce change, and that is why it was done this way, so it could be said that we had our opportunity, and thus we have chosen things the way they are. This is why politics has been played as something you want to have no part in, as that is exactly where change can happen, and does happen, through extensive lobbying, where the major industries use their collective wealth to pay for lobbyists to get laws made in their favor, and the employees of such interest group are happy with that as it supports/protects their method of income. So you can start to see if you haven’t already, just how ‘interconnected’ we are with the system, as it’s the system we currently live off of, and depend on for our survival, and thus why it will be and has been protected at all costs if it is openly attacked. Thus the only solution currently is to get into a position in the system where you can have an impact and change it from within or be squished like a little bug. Those in positions of power got there not by doing only what they wanted to or felt good about, but by doing what it took, thus we have to be equal in our determination to do what it takes, and not get stuck on how we’d like to do it, and thus never end up taking the actions necessary to make a difference. This non-violent option of utilizing the system to change it from within is the option that is here, and we don’t know how long this window will be open, where we have a chance to make a change, and without bloodshed and violence. It’s not likely we’ll get a better option than this.”

Within this, one can also get involved with the formulation of the policies that are being developed within the Equal Money System, which is the economic system being developed from the ground up on the principle of supporting and caring for all of life, leaving no one out. This is the future of politics, where politics will be decided and implemented by the people, which actually cares for the people and all of life here, as nature and the animals, as our survival depends on this earth and our environment, and our quality of life is directly linked to the quality of all life here.

Do you notice where you find yourself competing with your other fellow employees, because you can’t all ‘win’, you can’t all get the bonuses, and this puts you in a position where you’re against each other, instead of working together toward the common goal, you’re now working in separation for ‘potential rewards’. And the only reason this competition exists, is because there are these possibilities/opportunities to get more money, but not for everyone. That means, very simply, it’s either ‘You or Them’. So now your focus is distracted from the task at hand, and now focused on ‘beating everyone else’ to get to that prize. And for many people, this is not something that sits well, as most people don’t want to be against one another, but would much rather get along well and work together on things, but find oneself torn now between one’s own personal well-being/income and everyone else’s. In this, one will have to find whatever way one can to cope with or justify having to compete against one’s fellow man, like coming up with reasons like ‘why I deserve it more and they don’t’ and ‘I have to look out for myself/my family’.

What hasn’t been considered within this is the simple solution of giving to all equally, and giving enough that each and every individual can have a dignified life, the best quality life possible, where there is no worrying whether you will be able to get the healthcare you need, or the food you need, or adequate housing, education, etc.

If everyone gets the same support, competition will cease, because you won’t have to compete with others to get what you need and to have a dignified life. Then we can really focus on the tasks at hand and the productivity of humanity will not diminish, but will be of a higher quality, as when we work together on things, we are capable of so much more than when we’re all ‘on our own’ and having to work against each other.

What’s really incredible is the extent to which competition has been and is accepted as a ‘normal’ part of life, and it’s essentially forgotten that competition had to be conditioned in – we aren’t born with it. It’s something we learn through our family structures and in school, especially in sports for example, where winning is emphasized, and you’re separated into ‘teams’ instead of everyone being on the same ‘team’ and working together.

Some will argue that competition builds character, and it sure does – the question is, just what kind of character does competition create? The kind that has justified and accepted turning against one’s fellow man and seeking to ‘win’ no matter if it means someone else loses. And that is the very basis of our current economic system and our relationship toward/with it, in which we’ve accepted that only a few can ‘win’, while most everyone else has to ‘lose’, and never considering the option that everyone can win, and that if you winning means someone else losing, that is not really ‘winning’. The real way to win is to have a world where we’re actually supported to live in the best quality, and none are denied access to what we need here to live and thrive, that none are allowed to suffer for no good reason in order to make profits.

And it’s actually thought that using ‘incentive’ actually ‘increases productivity’, and you’ll have things like ‘quotas’ to meet at work, where what happens is this actually limits growth and productivity, because once you’ve met the quota, there’s no motivation then to go on any further, as your movement was dependent on that incentive. And where in the case of meeting a quota, the reward is usually actually the ‘avoidance of some form of punishment’, so your goal becomes totally removed from the actual task/job you’re doing. And that begs the question, why does what you’re doing require incentive to get you to do it? Is it not something you would do otherwise? So that really calls in to question the nature of what it is that we require incentive to do, and whether it is really the kind of jobs that are of benefit to ourselves and each other, and all of life here, or whether it’s jobs that only exist for the making of profits, without concern/regard for life?

See, we wouldn’t just naturally abuse ourselves and our home the earth and nature, but we had to be incentivized to do so, so that we won’t question what’s really being done and what are the actual consequences and outflows we’re creating, and why it is that we’re doing it, because we’ve been given a reason, it’s for a reward, which for many the ‘reward’ is literally one’s survival, and there is obviously no freedom in that. So it’s slavery, we’ve enslaved ourselves to/within this capitalist system where we must work within what’s available to us just to be able to survive, and thus there is really no free will in this reality, no ‘free choice’. Because not everyone can become, say, president of a country or a business. I mean, it’s obvious no starving child is ever going to be a wealthy business owner. And that even the majority of those in elite countries who are surviving in relative comfort, and living paycheck to paycheck, are not going to become world leaders or big-time CEO’s.

Obviously a system based on competition is not working, with most of the population living undignified lives, lacking even the most basic of needs, when there is plenty for all to live the best quality life. It’s as simple as no longer accepting a system that is based on us competing against one another, and instead one where the starting point principle is to work together, as the world we can create through cooperation is one in which no one starves. Where no one suffers from lack of clean drinking water, effective education, proper housing, or effective healthcare. I mean it really makes you wonder why haven’t we done this already and established an Equal Money System, so that we can give ourselves the best life possible, and All of us, not just a few with the most money in a system that doesn’t give enough to all, through which we’re allowing people, children to starve every day, when it can be prevented. Time to give ourselves the life we’ve always wished for – join us today at http://equalmoney.org.

This fascinating interview here about the Design of Infinity is definitely a must watch! I remember the first time I came across this perspective and it blew my mind, literally! I couldn’t believe the now so seemingly-obvious points about the basic design of infinity that I had never considered- had missed completely! It simply had never ‘crossed my mind’- as I just simply had followed the beliefs and perceptions that already pre-existed as what was taught to me about ‘infinity’ and what it means and implies to be living in an apparent ‘Infinite Existence’. Basically I had believed that ‘Infinity’ implied ‘unlimited-ness’ and ‘unending-ness’ so to speak- a ‘vastness’, like the ‘ultimate’ vastness beyond all imagination- however- if you have a look at the design of infinity- you’ll see this is not exactly the case, and there is some serious points we have missed-

See, infinity is a time based design- it seems ‘endless’ because it has no apparent beginning and end- but this is simply an illusion created by simply cycling the beginning and the end over and over and over, on and on, ‘infinitely’. So within that, infinity is not limitlessness in any way whatsoever- it is actually a complete and total trap- an enslavement to cycles endlessly repeating- quite the opposite of the ‘impression’ I’d had of what ‘Infinity’ was ‘supposed’ to be. Oh, yes it is indeed ‘vast’ and ‘endless’- a ‘vast’ and ‘endless’ repition of cycles over and over.

This is not Life obviously- this is a program- infinity is a program that runs repeatedly and simply follows it’s design as it was programmed to do. At Desteni we are realizing ourselves as Life- to no longer be enslaved to and within the endless cycles of infinity- fascinating how we’d missed such a simple point- such a simple consideration- within the design of infinity, and had it completely backwards- infinity is just another program, and to be living within an infinity based system is actually enslavement and limitation. Definitely give this interview a listen especially if you had the same ideas as I did about the Design of Infinity! It’ll blow your mind.


Ah- more discussion on the ever-ridiculous ‘Debt Ceiling’ fiasco- discussing how it is irrelevant- how value within our current system is not equality-based and how this lead to abuse and exploitation of ourselves- and what is the solution to this mess. Have a listen.

I was visiting at my mom’s today, and the tv was on, she had it on in preparation for watching the “royal wedding”. It wasn’t due to happen for several more hours yet, but it was already being talked about on the tv, people were gossiping about the “royal family”, and the “bride to be”, gossiping about their relationship, how she dresses, what kind of jewelry she wears, and one point specifically they were talking about was that she didn’t wear a lot of jewelry, and they wondered whether she’d wear ‘the tiara’, which is apparently a traditional tiara belonging to the royal family.

One of the ‘commentators’ said that people would be disturbed if she did not wear it, as it’s a traditional thing.

Hiow ridiculous is this- that we will be upset because some lady does not put on a specific jeweled tiara thing- while there are people literally starving to death in each and every moment- and yet thousands, no probably millions, will be watching this so-called “royal family” with excitement, without even considering the obvious fact that these people are ridiculously wealthy lavishing themselves with jewels and what will likely be a extensively expensive ceremony, while billions of people have barely enough food to eat.

This shows just how extensively the human is brainwashed, to find some random family ‘special’ and spend their time watching other people gossip about this family which they are not doing because they care about this family, no they are doing it simply for money- so those that’s going to all the trouble of hyping-up this family and hypnotizing people to be interested in it- they are just putting on this very deliberate act in order to get paid- and those that watch do so to have a moment of distraction from their lives and the world around them.

However, distracting oneself with this kind of entertainment never makes anything better- once the distraction is over, one’s life is still the same, and often just gets worse- and obviously so, because one is not actually dealing with the problems in one’s life, but is trying to ignore them- yet the problems will not disappear by themself. This is why people will use drugs as well, it’s the same thing- they are trying to ‘get away’ or ‘escape’ from reality, but it’s always here, you can’t actually get away from it.

At Desteni one is shown the tools one can use to actually start facing one’s life- to be able to deal with the problems in ones life- and once you start doing this- you will no longer desire to ‘run away’ and ‘hide’ from your world, your reality, because you will actually be taking charge of your life so that you can be stable, no longer fear to face what’s here, but actually stand up and make change and direct yourself- and then you will want to spend every moment here, and trying to escape reality will become utterly pointless and in fact undesirable. This is so cool. The Desteni I Process is the life-coaching process that’s been specifically designed to walk one through this process of becoming self directive to be able to face and thus to change  one’s world, and get back one’s power! Suggest to become involved in the Desteni I Process- you will never be bored again, lol.

I’ve been learning just recently in my American History class about the period we call “Industrialization”, which was basically when we started developing and using machinery to do labor, back in the 1880’s or so. Or rather, when a few men who had money invested in some machines and set up companies where they hired workers and paid them an hourly wage to work these machines, in factories.

In their greed, they wanted to pay the workers as little as possible and had no real concern for the conditions that the workers had to work in, and this eventually led to what we call ‘Strikes’ and then ‘Unions’ were formed to fight the owners for rights for the workers, and through the strikes and revolts that took place, labor laws were created.

Here is a quote from my American History textbook, speaking about how after the first strikes that occurred by railroad workers, armories were built to protect from attacks from strikers and rioters, because strikers had looted and burned buildings.

.

“The need for armories signified the paradox that an industrial economy celebrated for its dynamism was also an economy brutally indifferent to the many who fell by the wayside and hence an economy that was never secure, never free of social conflict.”

.

So you can see the implication here is that if some are not allowed to ‘fall by the wayside’, then there will Not be Social Conflict. It really is that simple. The strikers were eventually put down by force by federal troops that were brought in. So here is a perfect example of what happens when you riot, and why it doesn’t work. Because the wealthy can buy troops to Force you, and you can’t. And since the wealthy make their money from the system as it is, that is what they will use their money to protect.

So if you put yourself in the way of commerce- you’re asking for it and you shall receive. Just look at history all over the world- no wait, that’s right, you can see this exact scenario taking place right this very moment, in Libya, Egypt, Yemen, etc. This Rash of Rioting and Protesting that’s been spreading like a Virus has been met with what? Force. Killing. This is no solution.

For all the Revolutions that’s taken place, there is more dying and suffering today than ever. So the solution is obviously not throwing sticks and stones at the government and saying ‘I don’t like you, I want a new Mommy’.

.

Fascinating that to this day, we still have not understood and realized that this method of laboring by force and separation/superiority is extremely ineffective, and of course most workers are unsatisfied with the work situations, worldwide, and the best labor does not come from people unsatisfied with what they’re doing.

But really, those who are Profiting are considering it from a perspective of, ‘how much work can I get out of these people while having them still accept and allow me to direct what is produced in my own favor?’ For them, it is about balancing the ‘unrest’ while getting as much production as they can. Quite Absurd.

Quite ridiculous, in fact, that we still allow it to continue this way, where a very few people make most of the profit of the companies which the many provide the labor for, for significantly less pay, and consideration of their well-being only so far as the law requires and is enforced.

.

What’s required is that those of us who can, do what we can to learn how this current system works, so that we can infiltrate this system from within, because like I said before, if the system thinks you are a threat to it, it will squash you like a little bug, and that’s the end of you, and the system goes on, in utter disregard of Life.

.

Therefore, the only shot we have at this, is to infiltrate- to become the system, so we can stand as the system, and purify it from within. It is much like the immune system within the human physical body- if the immune system identifies you as a virus- it goes into ‘red alert’ and will raise its army to take you down. However, there are pathogens that adapt and manage to go undetected by the immune system, and thus they are allowed to enter unscathed and unmolested. So there you see the solution, in a way, is right here within ourselves, within our cells, haha.

.

Stand up, learn the system, become the change, be part of the solution. Those who want to riot are looking for a ‘quick fix’, but there is no quick fix for the mess we have created here, unfortunately, and it only gets bigger, so better to get started and not hesitate. Join Desteni and participate with finding solutions to the problems we face, and be a part of the most Radical Change to ever happen in Existence.

.

Take part in the Desteni-I-Process where you will get life-coaching that will prepare you to be a Leader in this World so you are ready when the Time comes, to implement a new system, the Equal Money System, wherein All will be considered and No One left out, and there will be no more need to fight for rights because all our rights will already be Supported, there will be no Less and More, everyone will be ‘Equally More’ and we will All live like Millionaires.

I’m currently taking a class on American History, and reading about what’s called ‘Reconstruction’, which is the name for a period that took place between 1865-1877, in which the Southern Confederate States were reunited with the Northern Union States after the Civil War and the legal abolition of slavery.

.

A perspective that is given in my textbook, is that at that time, while it was becoming more normal and accepted in the North to work for wages, in the South this was seen as degrading, as to work ‘another’s’ land was seen as dependency, and working and owning your ‘own’ was seen as freedom. Therefore the freed ‘slaves’, were not all that excited to now be able to contract with the former slave owners. One South Carolina freedman responded to an offer of wage work, “I mean to own my own manhood, I’m going to own my own land.”

Quite fascinating to consider this when now across the whole country the vast majority of people are wage workers, and very few are landowners. Also, to see how we’ve formed this definition of what it means to be ‘free’, in terms of ‘ownership’, within the context of a system in which we don’t work together, and each is ‘out for himself’ and everyone has to have ‘their own’ because we don’t share, because we don’t trust each other, because we can’t in a system where each has to be ‘out for himself’. Lol, Catch-22 there, isn’t it.

.

There was also friction around an issue where on some plantations, the ‘planters’ would tell the men that their wives and children couldn’t live with them unless they also worked in the fields.

.

Quite fascinating when you consider that in many cases nowadays, the wife has had to seek employment so that the family can ‘make ends meet’ and the wages of the husband is simply not enough to support the family. And if the family can’t pay it’s bills, NONE of them get to live there- they lose their home and are Out On the Street.

We Sure have Come a Long Way, haven’t we?

.

There were a lot of negative reactions to the efforts of the former slaves taking control of their own lives from those whites who held the belief that blacks were meant to be subordinate to them. In one case in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, after a dispute with some ‘freedmen’, the whites burned their cabins and hanged the inhabitants. Thousands of Blacks were murdered and beaten. Now, you can see how delusional it is for some to believe that others are less than they, when they will commit acts such as this- this kind of behavior is not acts of superiority, but in fact infeariority, totally hypocritical, and obviously unacceptable.

.

Quite disillusioning to see who we have been and what we’ve accepted and allowed in the past, especially when so many act ‘patriotic’ and ‘proud’ of this country, when- when you look at the history, it is an absolute Disgrace, that we can learn from, to be Sure that this kind of Abuse Never Happen Again. Reconstruction shows us who we’ve been, it’s Time to Let the shit from the Past Go, so that we can begin to ‘Reconstruct’ our Nature, to that which is Supportive to All Life, and End this System of Debt Slavery- because Slavery hasn’t yet Ended, it’s actually increased.

.

Time to Give ourselves the Opportunity to Live a Dignified Life Here with an Equal Money System.

.

Everywhere you look, there is Glaring examples of how we have Completely, Utterly failed to understand what ‘Equality’ means.

.

Time to go back to kindergarten and re-learn basic math, because this is simple 1+1=2 kind of stuff, that we’ve completely missed. I mean, this is really one Big F-up.

.

For example, I heard this story on the radio today:

.

Colby Bohannan, a student at Texas State University, was having trouble finding a scholarship that he and his friends were eligible for, being white males. So, he created an organization called the “Former Majority Association for Equality” which offers grants Exclusively to Caucasian men.

.

Now, if you are giving/doing something that only applies to ‘Some’ and doesn’t apply to ‘Others’, that is not Equality. Equality is All-Inclusive, otherwise, it’s not Equal it’s that Simple.

.

This is but one example- there are MANY. And obviously there are, obviously we’ve not yet understood this point, of what Equality is, otherwise we’d be Living It. We would have Equality, and we do Not- We have total In-Equality, despite those that claim that they support Equality- because it’s never been about Actual Equality- that’s All-Inclusive– it’s been always self-interest, even if it wasn’t realized. We have so many groups which claim to stand for Equality, but they are in fact only supporting themselves- they try to ‘fight’ for ‘equality’ against those who are not treating them equally, which only makes their ‘opponents’ fight back even harder or disregard them even more.

.

There’s no need to have scholarships exclusively to any particular group, there’s no need to have scholarships at all in fact, only in this current capitalist system where not all can afford an education, and many can’t even afford their basic needs, do things like ‘scholarships’ even have relevance. In an Equal Money System, Education will be available to all equally– thus there will be no need for any interest groups protecting their own separate interests from one another. All will be Supported Unconditionally. That is Real Equality.

.

Investigate Equal Money.

.

In looking at the points of how, basically, the Democratic party supports Federal Government and the Republican Party supports State ‘Sovereignty’, what I see within this is that it’s like a fight over which has ‘power’, or where the ‘power’ is placed.

.

Now, what I see is that it should not be about ‘power’ at all, but rather a point of, as it’s supposed to be, simple administration. If it was not set up to be about who has the ‘power’ to be able to ‘manipulate’ the system to their benefit in separation from the rest, then nobody would give a fuck about whether we have ‘more federal gov’t’ or ‘more state government’ as it would not be relevant in terms of one or the other ‘getting’ having power’, thus we could decide how much to have of what, based on simple actual practicality, based on simply what is needed and what is effective.

.

When we have a system that’s based on Equality, this will be the case, as in an Equality system, No One has the Power because ALL have the Power, because All are considered Equally, and thus None is Left Out, thus No One loses, No One is abused for the sake of another to Gain from their Loss, as it is in the current Capitalist system.
