Oil industry launches big election PR push – Not in an Equal Money System

January 5, 2012 Leave a comment

“Oil industry launches big election PR push” –full story here.

Further proof that our economic system is based on and is completely controlled by money- the ‘oil industry’ is launching a campaign to support itself and its own industry. What is the drive behind this? Yes, Money. Does humanity require more oil? Not actually. The majority of our use of it is unnecessary in the first place- most of it’s used in businesses making/transporting products that aren’t necessarily needed but are simply created in the hopes of selling it for profit. As such, the current system is eating up resources and the trash is piling up of products that break or become obsolete quicker and quicker or of ‘disposable’ items that don’t get many repeat uses before they’re thrown out, like plastic water bottles and such, which are made out of plastic which comes from, yes, oil.

The only way we’re going to stop this cycle of rapidly destroying the planet and making it uninhabitable is by changing our abusive system to one that actually works and does not ‘necessitate’ such excessive waste. One of the excuses used to justify the oil industry’s push for more support of the oil industry, is that it will create more jobs, at a time when unemployment is even higher than usual. But we don’t need more jobs- that’s what’s destroying the planet through overconsumption of resources.

What we need is a system which actually supports us- not one where we’ve accepted that we apparently come into this world in debt- the majority of the population that is, while a very few are born into this world with enough money that they’ll have access to everything the world has to offer. We need a system where we value ourselves as equal where no one has to go without, and everyone has access to their needs and to that which supports life. Because that is how it should be.

Then we wouldn’t find ourselves in this situation where advertisements will be played on tv which are specifically designed to convince people to support the oil industry just so more money can be made and at the expense of the quality of our life and in fact the very ability for us to live here since we’re so rapidly destroying the place through this rat race system of debt, where money is valued in such a way that keeps the majority of humanity enslaved- with no real choice how to live, with no option or ability to live a truly effective and fulfilled life, where one is supported and has the ability to expand oneself and develop skills and talents and get the best education- what we have today and have had for all time is the exact opposite where almost no one really gets to thrive and everyone is caught up in a bare struggle to survive.

This is no way to live, with most enslaved to money, and those that don’t have any suffering from starvation and treatable diseases. It’s 2012, should this really still be happening? Should we still be enslaved in a debt system where we work our lives away literally giving our lives as we shrivel up from a lifetime of work, day-in and day-out, with practically no opportunities to really express oneself here in a way that one would like or would actually choose. Have a look, most of one’s decisions are made based on money- it’s infiltrated and become the deciding factor in every facet of life- thus life has become and has been slavery, and has never really been life.

If you want to actually support the people who don’t have jobs right now- investigate and support the Equal Money System  so that such a situation never manifests where we find ourselves in positions where we’re not being supported by the system. Support the Basic Income Grant as a stepping stone system to assist with effectively ending poverty within the current capitalist system, so that everyone can get their basic needs at least, and this will support everyone at least with the point of survival, freeing everyone to consider what’s really going on in this world in the big picture so we can start effectively dealing with the problems at hand, before it’s too late.

Inches away from being America’s Fukushima: Nuclear plant dangerously close to being engulfed by Missouri floods

July 3, 2011 2 comments

“A nuclear plant was inches away from being engulfed by the bloated Missouri River after several levees in the area failed to hold back its surging waters, raising fears it could become America’s Fukushima.” Full article here.

Isn’t is rather disturbing when we can come so close to what would be a truly horrific disaster, with tons and tons of suffering, and yet life for the most part, just seems to continue on as if nothing is happening?

If this nuclear power plant were to flood, the repurcussions of this would effect everyone, not just the local people, just like the Fukushima disaster has had world-wide effects. We live in a closed-system where nothing is actually separate.

For the most part, it seems as though, most of us think this is ‘not my problem’ or that there’s ‘nothing I can do about it anyway’ – it’s just something you hear about on the news, and hope that it gets taken care of, by whoever is supposed to be taking care of such things.

For the most part, none of us even question that we even find ourselves in such a position – don’t even question how such a situation has even come to be. I mean, when we look at even just the most basic factors involved- a nuclear power plant built along a river – or even just a nuclear power plant, regardless where it’s built is insane enough considering the risks which we are fully aware of due to events such as Chernobyl and the catastrophic damage to life that has caused, the extensive cases of a whole variety of monstrous health defects, children born with all kinds of abnormalities, a bloated hospital system desparately trying to, and simply not able to, provide the needed care to all those suffering from that cataclysmic event still to this day.

Faced with the reality of the risks involved of which we’re well aware, why would we even consider to continue using nuclear energy? Well, actually there are many who are not aware. It is not something you see much in the news or learn about in school. And for the most part, our perception of what’s going on in the world, and what is important, is dependent on how and what is presented to us as important — we don’t seem to be able to determine for ourselves what matters — after all, we are generally taught and raised by our parents to believe that only ‘professionals’ or ‘authority figures’ can actually know, see, understand, and thus tell us what is important and what is not. We are not allowed to develop a ability to see for ourselves what is actually important.

Well, that is not entirely true — we are taught to see some things as ‘important’, because it was realized that if you can control what the individual sees as important, you can take advantage of that. Just look at some of the things that’s taught as ‘important’, like for example, ‘entertainment’ is taught as something that is an important and necessary part of one’s life, to make up for and to help one cope with the extensive amount of labor one must do to ‘make a living’ within the current system, and this ‘entertainment’ is even quite specifically defined into specific types of entertainment, all which are linked to a specific consumer market- i.e. movies, video games, alcohol, sports, etc. You’ll notice that, forms of entertainment that do not make money are not advertised. So, through this selective advertising, the human is trained to seek only some forms of entertainment — those which make money — and to ignore everything else.

This way, the human’s attention is ‘channeled’ onto these specific points of seeking entertainment, keeping the human occupied and distracted from what’s going on in the world that’s actually important. Like when power plant is inches away from becoming generations and generations of physical maladies like tumors and brain damage and various forms of real physical suffering.

The human is also taught there is nothing they can do it about- only the ‘professionals’ know what to do and can do anything about it, apparently. This is just another ‘trick’ to keep humans from actually doing anything — as long as they think there is nothing they can do, they won’t be able to do anything. All the various institutions that are currently responsible for disseminating information to the ‘public’, such as the television new stations, news radio, schools and universities, etc.– are businesses within and dependent on the current money system, thus they support the current system, and as such are not going to share information that would ‘threaten’ the current system. They are not going to share with the public how the system operates so that the public could actually be participants in the creation and operation of the system- because if that were the case, most people would not choose to allow the system to continue the way it is now.

Most people would rather not live in a world where so much suffering is allowed to go on, every day, every second. Where children are subjected to needless horrific tortures. Where we must spend the majority of our lives slaving away at some irrelevant job that only serves to make someone rich at the expense of the well-being of life- like nuclear power plants.

This is why at Desteni, we are standing up from within this current system, to say that there is another way, and to expose the massive deception that’s taking place and has been for some time — to show that we do not have to accept the system as it is, and that we can live in and create a world where none have to suffer– we are debunking all the lies and misconceptions that’s been propagated so that we’ll accept the current system as it is, despite it’s deleterious affects on ourselves and our world. Desteni is humanity coming together to say ’till here no further’ will we accept and allow such atrocities to be committed, which only lead to more and more suffering. We are standing up and taking self responsibility to create a new system in which life will be supported, where all will ‘profit’ from our labors — not only a few as in the current system, while the rest toil and suffer the consequences of such an abusive system.

If you are ready to stand up for a world where we can actually Live as who we are, as our Real Expression as Human Beings here on this Earth — where we should be the Custodians of this world — not the destroyers of it — join us at Desteni in bringing about a world where we can live in Dignity and in a way which is Best for All – where none must suffer or experience the horrific consequences of nuclear radiation, where we can consider how to do things in such a way that actually supports life here, and does not destroy the very ecosystem as nature as that which we actually require to live and exist here in the physical.

If you’re ready to participate in something that is Real for once, and not simply a marketed form of entertainment designed to channel your attention into a specific market for someone’s profit to keep you distracted from what really matters here — join us at the forums at the Equal Money website, where we’re busy developing the new system which will support us as life here, to live as how we would have really liked life to be — as a world free from suffering and exploitation, where we can actually have time to enjoy ourselves and express ourselves as physical beings here!

Teen in China sells kidney to buy iPad 2

June 3, 2011 Leave a comment

.

“A TEENAGER in China reportedly sold one of his kidneys for 22,000 yuan (S$4,185) so he could buy an iPad 2.

.

The Global Times said the 17-year-old high school student, identified only as Zheng, had confessed to his mother after she noticed the gadget and a deep red scar on his body, which was from the surgery.” Full article here.

.

Wow. This is the sort of thing that happen in this current system. When you see something like this happen- this is a sign of a a very big problem- where someone actually feels compelled to have surgery and sell an organ from their physical body- in order to have some money to buy things which, for many others, is not so difficult to obtain. Of those who can’t afford it- I’m sure many more simply go without than go to this extreme.

.

Technology should be readily available to everyone- in this current capitalist system it is not so, this system is completely profit-driven, therefore the whole point of our current system is for some to make profits at the expense of others. It’s in this type of abusive system that you’ll see things done like this- people doing horrific things just to get some money- so they can get access to the things that for some is quite easily available, and yet for the majority is just a fantasy- something they can never have.

.

This is not a resource issue, as if you research into manufacturing and how it’s developed and the techniques used, there is so much redundancy in production- and it’s all for the sake of trying to get the most profit, at the expense of everyone and everything else – animals, ecosphere- well-being of life.

.

And once this kid has spent the money then its gone and he doesn’t get his kidney back, and the technology he’s paid a kidney for will be made obsolete in most likely 18 months or less. You see- we’ve decided on a system where value is disposable and transitory- like energy, it here and then it’s gone, here then gone- continuously fluctuating- and thus our lives are constantly fluctuating as well- and there is no stability in life-

.

The majority of us are the ones that do the labor that provide all these goods and products- and from this ‘economic’ system we get our livelihood- and thus our lives are as unstable and unsupported as the stuff we make- that’s made to break.

.

This story of a boy selling his kidney is a perfect metaphor/example for how we have accepted life to be- that we must sacrifice that which is real and stable here and that gives us life here- which is the physical- to the system- a system which only exist as it does because we accept it that way- as if what is here is the only way. And it doesn’t help that what we’re taught in school tells nothing of any of this, or what’s really been going on- and what we could do about it- no, you won’t hear anything about changing the system because there are those who are more than happy to have kids sell their organs so they can make a buck.

.

If you’ve had enough of being sucked dry by this ‘for-profit at the expense of life’ money system- investigate the Equal Money System– Where Equality is considered, such that- no situation will be allowed that all would not Equally stand in. It’s time to give ourselves the system we’ve been waiting for- Equal Money.

Greece Bailout is a FAIL – What is the Solution??

May 13, 2011 1 comment

So it’s been a year since Greece was loaned €100 billion to ‘prop up’ it’s failing economy. And here they are about to default again. Now, the reason they were bailed out is not because of some philanthropist sentiment to help out the people, but rather it is what creditors do in order to continue making money. A creditor who collects money from the debtor that they loaned money to, wants to keep collecting money from them, but if the debtor defaults, then the creditor will not collect any more money from them.

.

So they decide to ‘prop up’ Greece’s economy, so they can continue receiving payments from them, even though it’s quite obvious that the actual economic problems haven’t be solved, and in fact will only worsen and Greece would come to this point of default again, which it now has. Those who make the decision to accept a bailout for the country are those who are going to profit from it, the corporations and CEOs, who get massive bonuses, while the working class faces deep recession and unemployment.

.

It’s basically a giant scam, and those at the top of the pyramid scheme who are profiting from this abusive system, are doing everything in their power to prop up the system and keep it going to make as much as they can as long as they can. Even to the extent of using tactics to turn people against one another to distract them from the real solution, which is that we need a new system. They fund groups to spur uprisings that just incur fighting between people and keep people distracted from what’s really going on. So don’t listen to anything that promotes separation like nationalism and racism, as it’s been planted, and only violence and death will come of that, no real change has ever come from fighting each other or rioting, that’s why we’re still facing these problems today.

.

How much of this do we have to go through before we’ll finally get the point that the system doesn’t work, it’s used to abuse many for the profit of a few, and we can stand up and change this. There is a solution and it’s an Equal Money System. Where there will be no more ‘debt’ and no more of this few people making profits at the expense of the rest of the population.

.

I mean, who are we in debt to? How can debt exist? There is only ourselves to be in debt to, and that doesn’t make any sense. We are all here, and we are all laboring extensively, so why is there such widespread suffering and poor living standards and general dissatisfaction? It’s time we stand up for a new system that will give us Quality of Life so we can actually Enjoy ourselves here! Investigate Equal Money.

Help Japan- Don’t Donate to Capitalism- Support an Equal Money System

March 16, 2011 Leave a comment

You know, it’s in the face of violent natural disasters, that we get a unique opportunity to really see who we are- To see just who we are in the wake of such a disaster, how do we react, how do we respond, when nature strikes a devastating blow? Perhaps we should ‘make the most’ of a tragedy, and see what we can learn about ourselves in our reaction to the situation that’s going on in Japan.

People living near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant have been evacuated from their homes due to the risk of radiation leaks. However, despite the risk of radiation contamination, some 180 plant workers have remained behind, to continue to try to keep the plant from having a meltdown.

They are being referred to as heroes, as the radiation levels they are likely being exposed to are extreme. And while these workers are possibly sacrificing their lives, all we are doing is saying ‘how brave’. This is the extent to which we simply don’t give a fuck. That this kind of situation was even possible to happen in the first place.

This situation never needed to happen in the first place, and the least we can do is ensure that this never happens to anyone else again. When we have an Equal Money System in place, we will be able to fully explore alternatives, but perhaps even more dramatic than that, we’ll be able to cut down significantly on how much energy we require, thus we won’t be tempted to put in nuclear plants because we’re trying to get the most we can just to try and keep up with the demand of the Capitalist system, which sucks the life out of the planet and everyone and everything on it with total disregard for Life whatsoever. And in an Equal Money System, we will have to make jobs as safe as we possibly can, otherwise no one will do them, because we won’t be forced to do jobs that are hazardous to our health just to make a living and maybe be able to survive and breathe another day in this world.

In an Equal Money System, we’ll be able to prevent these kind of tragedies, and we won’t be simply watching this happen to people on a TV screen, and just calling them heroes…

Those who try to buy away their Responsibility and Guilt by donating money supposedly to Japan, within this current monetary system, no that you are doing nothing to help, and in fact are only adding to to the problem, by supporting the current system in which things like this happen. It’s Time for a New System which Considers Life, you want to Help Japan-  Support Equal Money.
