The Secret of Modern Day Imperialism

ImageGrowing up in the country of Sweden I was taught by my parents and in school that Sweden is a great and benevolent nation. I was taught that Sweden gives aid to the poor nations of Africa, that we support gender equality, and that we stand for a society without discrimination, where you should be treated the same regardless of sexual preference, religion, class or place of birth. Looking at the news back then, where it was shown how the western world with UN in the forefront through military effort protected the people of less democratic nations of the world, I actually believed that we as the western world, as Europe and America, had it down – we knew what we were doing and what we were doing was something good.

It is fascinating to see how many people and in particular the older generations that still hold unto this view of our country, because the truth of the matter is the my naïve childhood belief of the benevolent nation of Sweden and western industrialized countries is an absolute and complete sham. The reality is that Sweden is a big exporter of weapons and the fact is that weapons are designed to kill and wreak havoc; as such the very act of building and selling a weapon is in its nature a crime against life – a crime against human rights.

The reality is that America and Europe since long have been using organizations such as the UN to cover up their true imperialist ambitions – utilizing pretty words and fluffy terms such as the “Security Council”, “Democracy”, “Freedom”, “Solidarity” and “Human Rights” to hide the reality of their actions. The indisputable truth is the America and Europe have waged a systematic war against less fortunate nations in order to gain power and influence, in order to have access to resources, and in this NO considerations whatsoever have been given to the people of these targeted nations and the suffering that they have gone through in order to make some very few elitists disgustingly wealthy.

What I have understood through the research that I have done over the years is that our current system depicts itself in one way but the truth of what the system in-fact exists as is the complete opposite – and this is why one is not able to trust any information that is emitted through the main media channels of the world – the views coming through here are deliberately twisted and aligned to fit the picture as how the system wants to be seen.

In order to see the reality of the system it is as such suggested to research some of the more underground sources of information – and here a great source of information is the journalist John Pilger. He makes absolutely astonishing documentaries and one I warmly recommend for everyone to see is called Paying the Price – Killing the Children of Iraq, which clearly depicts the separation that exists between how the system presents itself to exist and how the system in-fact functions and exists in actuality.

What is then the Solution to this problem?

We have leaders in position of power that do not have integrity or common sense and this is our creation – we the people have through democracy selected the people in charge of making decisions that do not support life and as such it is our responsibility to utilize our power of voting and our power of becoming politically aware to select leaders that do have integrity. A first step in the right direction and a practical way that we on a individual level can contribute to this change is through assisting and supporting with the reeducation of humanity – and this can be done through such simple means as writing blogs, making vlogs, and sharing the documentaries and articles that have already been created that effectively show what issues we are facing – and within this that we also share the Solution so that we do not keep ourselves stuck in a perpetual state of feeling helpless and hopeless – but that we show that there are practical steps we can take in order to make a difference in this world.

To create a lasting impact on a global level we do require a new economic system and in this we require to ban such harmful and destructive points as the weapons industry – the Living Income Guaranteed is a political proposal that will end much of the strife, suffering and hardship that is currently existent in this world – and it will put an effective halt to the imperialistic machinery currently driving the economies of the western world. We really do not need imperialism in order to have an effective economy – what we need is humanity coming together supporting and assisting one another and this is what the Living Income Guaranteed will support with.

Thus – make your voice heard, stand up as a catalyst of common sense and effective reasoning and show those still blind to the obvious that there is another way to live where all are included and where the Human Rights of each human-being will be honored practically and where it doesn’t remain but fluffy and nicely sounding words.

Let’s get this done!

Debt Fueled Economy

ImageWhen the western economies fell apart during the great crash of 2008 something interesting happened over in China. Because Chinas economy is mostly based on exports to the west the course that was predicted was that Chinas economic growth would stagnate and follow the recession taking place in Europe and America. This though did not occur and instead the opposite happened – Chinas economy continued to grow exponentially seemingly without being affected by the turn of events in the west. Obviously, this is fascinating and opens up the question as to how China could direct its economy to continue to grow regardless of the massive loss in exports.

There is a great documentary giving the answers as to why China persisted when the west fell apart – and you can see it HERE. What is shared in this documentary is the secret behind Chinas success. The key is be found in one magic little word:

DEBT!

Yes – China used its banks to super-charge it’s economy through opening up the credit floodgates – allowing for a massive lending spree. The consequences of this grand debt injection can be seen in how entire cities, complete with their own subway system, skyscrapers and monumental cultural and sports facilities, are now sprouting out of what seems to be thin air – this is how fast and massively China is now pursuing it’s growth policies.

It’s really fascinating and in the documentary I referred to they effectively shows just how bizarre this building marathon have started to become. There are some small cities with just some hundred thousand inhabitants that by their municipality have been awarded state of the art theaters and music arenas, of the caliber that you’d expect to see in metropolitan cities such as London and New York. The local politicians have thus taken matters in their own hand and through debt managed to build what in a western country would’ve been unthinkable.

Obviously the debt-fueled economy China is pursuing is not based on supply and demand – instead it’s based on a incessant need for growth. Because without growth there will be diminishment in jobs, and without jobs the political elite of China will have difficulty retaining their positions of power. Thus, from a purely economic perspective, what is happening in China is not very effective as it’s not REAL growth, it’s not REAL commerce – it’s an inflated growth and commerce. Many thus fear that Chinas vast spending is currently creating a massive financial bubble that in the coming years will pop and cause havoc on a global level.

Though, the point I want to bring through in this blog is not whether or whether not the economic policies of China are effective. Instead I want to show the POWER of money – and how one through taking control of and directing the money supply of a country can amass massive resources in the form of workers and raw materials. This is in essence what China has done. They have taken control over the bank institutions in their country and instructed it to through debt support economic growth.

But wait for it, here comes the fascinating aspect of this story.

Imagine what we could do in our countries if we would do the same thing WITHOUT adding on the DEBT. Think about what the effect would be if we as the people would create debt FREE money with the purpose supporting the growth in our countries. Because what is really money but papers and digits? Thus we’d simply take charge of the papers and digits and distribute these throughout the economy to fuel entrepreneurship and economic growth. In the process we would simply decide to not create the money as debt. Simple!

Because one of the major issues with our current economy is DEBT and how almost all money that circulates is DEBT. This have the consequence of placing massive strain on the people involved as there just never seems to be enough money to go around, never seems to be sufficient with money to build one’s life and all the time seems to be to much DEBT.

Thus, consider how our life’s could change if we take control of the money supplies, if we nationalize the banks and make sure that the money inserted into the economy are without debt.

There is a political proposal that as a part of its reinvention of the economic system suggests nationalizing the banks. This proposal is called Living Income and it’s a solution for a world in dire trouble. We do not need to bailout the banks, we need to take control of the banks and make them an asset in the hands of the people, so that we can focus upon building a world that is livable and create a future for our children that is dignified.

Investigate the Living Income Guaranteed and make the decision to stand for a political solution that will make a real change.

Are We Really Free?

I’ve for some time now been studying law, and in about a year and a half I’ve actually completed the entire education, and this places me in a position of considering what type of direction I should go into after I’m done, in terms in terms of finding a job.

I’ve thus been researching this point quite extensively for a couple of months and the conclusion I’ve made is that, in essence, there are no good jobs out there, most of them are difficult and arduous. Some jobs are easy to do, yet you get a low pay at the end of the month. Other jobs seems more stressful and demanding, yet they pay higher at the end of the month – yet regardless of what kind of job I select – the fact remains that I will have to spend at least 8 hours, 5 days every week, working away.

mmw_psychology_free_willThis place into question the notion we in the western world have of freedom and free-choice – because looking at this point that stands before me, can I in self-honesty say that I have a choice in regards to whether I work or not? The obvious answer is NO – there is absolutely no choice – because if you do not make sure that you have a stable income in this world then you’re simply not allowed to continue existing and we’ve thus developed a invisible form of slavery – where the slave-master is money and where we’re constantly running around trying to make sure we have the acceptance of this invisible money god.

It’s also not possible to say the freedom exists for those lucky few that have managed to accumulate so much wealth that they do not have to work a single hour more in their life – because these people are just as much as everyone else a prisoner of their own fear, a prisoner of their own greed – unable to live for real because they fear what they might loose.

We’ve thus, as humanity, managed to create a economic system that limits us as individuals, and that places us into these very small individual worlds where we are completely alone with ourselves and our fear – where we care for nothing else but ourselves and our fear – fascinating isn’t it?

What is even more fascinating is that most people will defend our current monetary system tooth and nail believing that it sets them free – not realizing that they are speaking in fear, defending their fear, honoring their fear, and strengthening the walls of their own prison.

What I’ve often heard is that, apparently, this system is based upon conscientiousness, because when there is a demand someone by their free will make sure to supply. Really, let’s take a look at it – do human beings supply by their own free will, or do they supply for the sake of their survival?

For example, why does porn exist? Some will say that it exists because there is a demand for it and naturally there will be a supply – though if all the young women that now seek their way into porn would’ve been economically stable, would there then have been such a constant stream of “new flesh” arriving into the porn industry, as we see today? Is it really a rational economical decision made by these woman based upon considering a career in porn, it’s effects and consequences? Is it really true that the demand for porn creates a supply of porn actresses?

No, it’s not true – because what creates a supply even to the most outrageous and immoral of demands is fear of survival and lack of economic stability – socioeconomic situations that push people into the most degrading of the circumstances just so that they can earn their living and survive and obviously there is no freedom what-so-ever to find in this – it’s just plain abuse.

What is important to understand is that our current economic system doesn’t work, it has never worked, and it will never work – it might seem to work for some people, though those some people are in minority and are able to prosper only because those born in less lucky conditions make it possible through their slavery.

Why then not change the system? Who has the power to change the system? Who has been part in co-creating this system?

The answer is YOU!

Thus, please make your voice heard and place your vote for a new economic system where we can give everyone the freedom that they deserve – from birth till death – investigate the Living Income Guarantee.

Planned Obsolescence

Apple-Planned-ObsolescenceThere are many that will claim that we as a human species are intellectually superior to the other species on earth – that we are better than others because we’ve invented the car, the airplane, the train and the computer – though here I have some unsettling news; we as a species are really the most inferior on the planet – as we’re the only species the deliberately destroy the equilibrium of our environment in order to sustain our lust for more.

Other animals do tend to in some ways destroy their environment, yet they never do so from a starting point of just wanting to have more – they do so because of need and to survive in this world; we as humans on the other hand search and destroy in order to fulfill our greed – and the world as it currently looks is a testimony to our inability to care and consider for our environment.

A perfect example of our incapacity to consider the consequences of our actions is the invention of planned obsolescence – a engineering trick created by highly educated human beings, that regardless of their university degrees, couldn’t understand that their invention would cause massive consequences.

Planned obsolescence is the deliberate decision to design a product to be of an inferior standard so that it will break in a set amount of time. This is done so that the consumer must go and buy a new product – thus increasing the revenues for the producer. What obviously hasn’t been considered in this approach is the damage and impact such a wasteful way of utilizing resources have on the environment; it’s as if us humans have imagined and believed that we could do anything we want to do – without any form of consequence – that we could use up all the resources in the world – without consequence – that we could do invent and create everything we’d like to – without consequence. Though, in this day and age – it’s becoming increasingly clear that this is not the case and that currently – we’re facing the Age of Consequence.

The consequence we will face due to how we’ve used planned obsolescence to drive our economies, is a loss of non-renewable resources such as oil, severe damage to important eco-systems of the world, such as forests and lakes, air pollution and through the greenhouse effect a raise in temperature all over the world – in other words – we will pay dearly for disrespecting the privileges given to us that we’ve been abusing for the sake of fulfilling our own greed. Consequence is absolute and can’t be negotiated – when consequence has been created it must be walked through and this is what we now must do as a human race.

Though, what is very important is that we do not anymore continue with our brutally lavish and inconsiderate lifestyle, and that we as such, together make sure that such nefarious intellectual inventions as planned obsolescence are banned and not anymore allowed to exist, so that we do not create more consequences for ourselves – to the extent where such consequences can’t be repaired or corrected – the point of no return.

The primary reason as to why planned obsolescence exists is because of Fear of Survival – we human beings tend to run around like crazies, all the time having in mind achieving, and getting to that money which we must have in order to get through our days, afford food and be able to pay of our mortgages – thus for the Love of Money, or rather, for the Fear of Loosing Money – we’ve created planned obsolescence; the solution as such is pretty obvious, isn’t it?

We need a new economic system – so that we can end Fear of Survival – I suggest that you investigate a Living Income Guarantee – and realize that we must stop or else we will be stopped.

A documentary suggested to watch in order to understand the magnitude of Planned Obsolescence is “The Light Bulb Conspiracy” – See Here
