Members of Parliament spend £1.4m on Exotic Trips while Millions can’t afford a Dignified Life

“How MPs’ foreign junkets have cost taxpayers £1.4m: Accounts show bill for ten trips topped £40,000 each” – Full article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2224541/How-MPs-foreign-junkets-cost-taxpayers-1-4m-Accounts-trips-topped-40-000-each.html#ixzz2AlDu01lE

So here we have some members of Parliament taking some very expensive trips, racking up a total of nearly £1.4million. Quite an obvious example of the corruption taking place within the current system, which we are allowing. I mean, when we’ve got most of the world’s population who can’t afford to have a dignified life, and then individuals who are spending millions on trips, there is an obvious disparity there. We all have agreed on the current money system, whether we realize it or not, because we’re busy participating in it, and our participation in it and acceptance of it is our agreement to it. It is like some sick joke we’re playing on ourselves, by allowing a few to horde most of the money in the world, while this directly means that others are going to go without.

I mean, we know this, we know there is corruption and greed, and that a very small few have way more than they could possibly ever use in a hundred lifetimes, while thousands are busy starving every day. And there is no possible justification for this. No matter how ‘philanthropic’ one might try to be, by donating to charities for example, that is not real caring, because real caring would be to make sure that all has enough from the very moment they enter into this world, til the moment they depart. But they won’t do that because they want to hold on to their money which is their ticket to an extravagant lifestyle, even if it means that billions suffer, because they haven’t realized that we can All actually live like Millionaires.

In an Equal Money System, this is the foundation principle, that all are equally supported and none are left out, within the realization that You would Not want to be the One Left Out. And within this, ensuring that All live a life of the Utmost Quality. Where everything that’s produced is of the best quality, because there is no actual reason to create anything of lesser quality. I mean, that is abuse. It’s massive abuse that we cause and do to ourselves.

In the case of these MP’s taking expensive trips to exotic places on ‘inquiries’ – will these ‘inquiries’ lead to creating a world that is best for all? Is it money well spent? No, because no one is calling for an actual change to the current money system. In a world with the technology and ability of internet communication is it necessary to go take a trip somewhere to have a discussion? It’s not. In the Equal Money System, we’ll utilize our technology in the interest of all life. See, there’s nothing wrong about enjoying traveling to places, it’s that it’s not cool to be taking exotic trips around the world that cost millions, when we haven’t first sorted out the suffering that we’re allowing, and make sure that we aren’t massively screwing billions of beings, not to mention the very environment we depend upon to live and to have these nice places to vacation to. That’s just pure evil. So, first we sort out this world that we’ve created by sorting out our economic system, and implanting one that actually supports everyone, as the Equal Money System, and then we can all have fun for real.

When we actually take real care of our world/environment, everywhere will be a nice place, and you won’t have to travel to go to someplace nice, though one might still like to travel and visit/learn about/explore different places in the world. But it won’t be about allowing most of the world to be disregarded, so that there’s just a few nice spots here and there. We should be taking care of everywhere. And government jobs should not be about taking vacations to those places, but should be actual administration of facilitating the distribution of resources to all of humanity and ensuring effective care of our world/environment, as it’s our home and we depend on it to live. Visit the Equal Money website and wiki to learn more about the Equal Money System and to see the foundational policies that lay out the blueprint for a system that actually supports life, through taking responsibility to sort out the mess we’ve created here and transforming our economic system from one that feeds on life, to one that cares for life in all ways.

Teen in China sells kidney to buy iPad 2

“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.
