Why We Have Not Been Able To Change

ImageOne thing that we have been able do through out the years is to find problems and issues – this is one of our strengths so to speak – and we have even been able to find and point out fundamental issues; for example, there has during a long time been an awareness as to how politicians are often bought by corporations to pass laws that will support their business ventures.

Yet, one question remains, why is nothing happening? Why is no change taking place?

This is a fascinating point to explore, because really, shouldn’t there be some form of change by now? I mean, we have for several hundreds of years looked at and been able to determine societies and this world’s most infectious problems – but still – any form of fundamental change has yet to occur.

Why is this then?

Well, when we look at how we approach problems, what becomes obvious is that we firstly, tend to focus only on the problem, go into blame and then we stop at that point – we do not even proceed to the solution – we stop at blame and when we have vented our anger – we are satisfied. Secondly, we tend to focus on problems in a one-dimensional and from an amazingly limited perspective. Take for example animal activists that ferociously attack and expose any form of animal abuse in this world – these activists tend to see the problem as: “These people doing this are greedy and just bad!” – and their solution to the problem is “Just to make them stop!” – and this is obviously a severely limited way of seeing the phenomena of animal abuse.

Because animal abuse is multi-dimensional, and often those that abuse animals are poor workers that in order to make a living, require to abuse animals, for example in order to attain fur. Others abuse animals because they simply do not have any effective understanding of the animal, an example is trophy hunters, parents that hunted themselves have often raised these trophy hunters, and accordingly the children will pick up on their parents and become just like them – so here what we are dealing with is a ineffective education. I mean, it’s not that people are “just bad” – there is always a story behind things, and when we understand this story are we able to implement a solution that will produce effective results.

So, our problem has not so much been to see problems – our problem have instead been to understand them and create solutions for them. We tend to go into ENERGY and EXPERIENCE when we see something that is not acceptable, yet what we miss is that when we go into energy and experience, we are not able to see and comprehend to full picture, and we are not able to objectively discern what course of action would amend the situation.

Thus, what we require to do as humanity is to become life scientists, and with this I mean that we stop reacting to the problems existing in this world, and that we instead look at what we are able, what solutions are available, and what specifically it is that creates the problems we are facing in our world.

Fascinatingly enough, what you will find when you allow yourself to become a life scientist, is that most, if not all problems in humanity and this world comes from MONEY or rather, the lack of money. There are political solutions to sort out the credit crunch currently gripping this world – Investigate Living Income Guarantee – and remember – no energy – no experience – just look at the facts.

The Era of Unemployment

unemploymentFor ages and ages humanity have held unto the fix idea that employment and labor is what entitles us to a dignified life. We have thought that only with a job are we able to earn money and build a future for ourselves. Now, we are reaching a new era – the technological era – and this means that machines are slowly but surely going to take over and become the new employee. More and more we are going to see people fall into unemployment unable to get back into the system – because there are no jobs anymore – machines have or will take over the positions until there are no positions left.

This places us in a unique position. Suddenly we have the possibility to sustain ourselves without having to dedicate all of our time to work and labor – the resources are here regardless. The problem is that we still hold unto to this fix idea of labor equals money, labor equals life, not realizing that our life equals the right to live which equals the right to money – as such most of us are stuck in survival mode unable to move ahead, waiting for the economic regression to turn into a growth and our jobs to come back, but this will not happen. The jobs lost to machines are jobs lost forever and as such we are waiting in vain.

Our fix idea that labor equals the right to life hinders us from seeing the possibilities that are now ahead. In my own country of Sweden the biggest obstacle standing in the way is peoples fears to the concept of the jobless society – we cling unto the belief that life can not be free from pressure, life can not just be given unconditionally, life must be a hardship, it must contain work, sweat, and tears, because without this apparently the economy simply will not work. We also believe that in giving all a right to life, somehow we ourselves will loose out and have a slice of our pie be stolen. All of these ideas and fears exists only in our minds and they are not aligned with the reality of what is here.

Because the reality is that there is plenty of resources on this earth the ensure that all are given a dignified life, the reality is that we are at a stage where machines can do the labor of man without any remuneration, and we are at a stage where we can allow ourselves to sit back, relax, and live life without the constant pressure and fear that the hunt for money entails.

The age of employment is at its end and we have in this been given an opportunity to recreate our economy to be inclusive and nourishing, instead of as is at the moment, exclusive and unhealthy – we can give to everyone a life that we would want for ourselves and the fear of us loosing our own resources is simply preposterous – we have the necessary infrastructure in place to make life on earth open for all. It is our responsibility to make sure that life is given to all because that is what we would like for ourselves – and now when the possibility have opened up there are no more excuses.

One of the greatest misconceptions we have made is to think that life is by nature harsh and unwelcoming – this is definitely a complete misunderstanding. Hardship and strife is artificial and man made – we have created a though system – we have decided to compete with another and we have decided to make money exclusive instead of inclusive; and what we must ask ourselves is whether it is worth it? Is it worth the fear, the pressure, the anxiety, the worry, the constant uneasiness? How come we have not given ourselves the right to money? Why have not gifted ourselves with the right to life, a real life, a life where we are able to express and move about free from the shackles of worry?

We have the future resting in our palms. Let us make the best of it – make your voice heard and stand as one vote for an Guaranteed Living Income – so that we can begin living for real.

Where Does Money Come From?

28goodman.xlarge1We tend to take the things most visible and obvious for granted and one of these things that very few people do understand properly yet that they are still in contact with on a daily basis is money. We all need money, we all work for money, and we are all dependent on money for our survival – but what is money? Where does money come from?

Most probably know that the printing rights to money in a country tends to be allocated with a bank that is called a Central bank. This bank has the permission to print money and spread it into the economy of the country. And this is really a fascinating aspect of how money works, it is really just paper that has some numbers printed unto it and there is no actual backing behind the money. There is for example no gold backing up the money – it is just paper with numbers dictating its value. This form of banking system is called a fiat banking system.

Thus these papers we call money do not get their value as a predetermined and absolute value. Instead money gets their value from those who use money in their everyday life in order to buy commodities and services. How we – the users of money – value money will become the value of money. As such the value of money is never stable but goes up and down depending upon how much money as been printed in comparison with the amount of commodities and services in circulation in society as well as the current demand for commodities and services.

This is then the absolutely fascinating aspect of money of which not many are aware. Money is created from NOTHING – literally – and then it is sent out in society and it is given a value – and most often it reaches the population in the form of DEBT. Because here is yet another fascinating aspect of money creation – there is an interest on all money that is printed, which means that there will continuously be less money in circulation than what there is debt that must be settled. This in turn leads to a debt spiral, where more debt must be acquired to be able to pay the old debts.

The conclusion is thus that we are indebting ourselves to receive money to have no intrinsic value in themselves – we are thus indebting ourselves to a life of servitude not realizing that the money printed and spread in the form of debt is not an actual and real measure of value – it is a artificial value that is created through make belief – a make belief that we make a reality because we believe in it and act according to it as if it is a reality.

The question we should ask ourselves is why we should require paying an interest on the money that is in circulation in our countries? Should not money be a property of the people? Should not we all have the possibility to be able to acquire food, education and housing without indebting ourselves?

The answer is obvious, because we all want to live without debt. This is why we require educating ourselves on the process of how money is created and in this understand that we as the people of each and every country are able to nationalize the banks and as such take control over our own money supply.

As I said in the beginning – money is created from nothing. It is merely papers with numbers printed unto it and nothing more. Why is that we then continue to hold unto to the belief that money is a scarce resource and something that cannot be owned in plenty by all?

In nationalizing the process of money creation we will be able to issue money and bring it into circulation and in this support new investments, and we would be able to end the credit crunch currently holding the world in a tight grip, simply because the money issued would not be in the form of credit, but in the form of REAL money with no interest attached to its back.

I thus suggest we nationalize our banks and make the process or printing and issuing money something that benefits the wellbeing of all instead of as it exists today – a seemingly endless debt spiral where more and more people forfeit and have their lives ruined.

Investigate the Living Income Guaranteed – our political proposal involves the nationalization of the banks.
