Freeze! Stop Squandering Resources For Money!

freezerMy freezer had been broken for some months when I yesterday took it upon myself to call my landlord to see whether they could fix it. The issue with my freezer is that one of the plastic strips on the door have cracked, which results in warm air entering the freezer when the door is closed, which consecutively creates heaps of ice = not very good.

An hour after I called the repairman entered into the picture, and he confidently approached the freezer, looked at it, measured it, and then announced that maybe they would have to replace the entire freezer with a new one. I was flabbergasted – “What! Replace it!” I exclaimed – he looked at me as if agreeing that this was the appropriate reaction. Then he said: “Yes, these models don’t have spare parts anymore, some time ago we had to buy an entire new freezer due to a similar problem” – upon which I replied: “That is unnecessary!” with which he agreed.

Clearly this shows how there is some serious lack of common sense in our current system. I mean, isn’t it obvious that replacing an ENTIRE freezer due to a issue with one plastic strip, will in time cause MASSIVE repercussions in our environment? God, it’s bizarre – the facts are already here, jungles are being flattened, animals are going extinct, nature is suffering and dying – yet still we’re not able to apply such basic common sense that repairing what is already built will obviously be more effective than completely replacing it.

Evidently there is something else going on here, because even though we’re quite stupid, we’re not THAT stupid, we do actually know the results of this type of blatant squandering. Though, there is one voice in our head that makes us look away from the simple fact – the voice of GREED – the voice of wanting MORE – the voice of DESIRE – the voice of COMPETITION. I mean, ask yourself, what is it that drives this kind of behavior? Qui bono? And you’ll see that it’s specific, and it’s done because replacing something will increase profits, while only replacing a spare part, that’s hardly worth the effort.

Thus, we human beings, we move ourselves in this world to make money, to make more money, and primarily, to save ourselves from the anguish of poverty, thus we move ourselves to make sure we survive, and to survive, we’ll do anything that is required, even disregard the most basic common sense, such as the realization that reparation, is clearly a much more environmentally friendly option than replacement.

But let’s look at it even deeper, why is it that we exist in this state of survival? Why is it that we strive to make money regardless of consequences? Is it because we’re inherently evil? Is it because we like to do stupid things? Is it because we just don’t know any better?

The answer lays in the STRUCTURE of our WORLD – the structure of our RELATIONSHIPS – the SYSTEM that governs our life. Because this system of money is currently precariously ineffective as it situates all of us human beings into a state of survival – wherein suddenly common sense doesn’t matter – what matters is money and money works in mysterious ways.

Take a self-honest look at the situation developing in the world, and ask yourself the basic question, where does it come from? Where is the motivation? Where is the drive? How did we get here?

You will see that the root cause of MOST if not ALL our problems is MONEY, the LACK of money – and that this is the primary source of the apparent human incapacity to be compassionate and considerate. Thus, we need to ensure that all human beings are taken care of and have access to their basic necessities such as food, water, homes, clothes, medical care and education, because only through doing this will human beings be able to stand up, and change their ways, to not anymore be driven by the fear of survival, that makes them agents of stupidity – agents of destruction and havoc.

Investigate the Living Income Guarantee – stand up and be a voice of common sense in a world infested with FEAR and it’s colleague STUPIDITY – we need the an Income for all that will Ensure LIFE – it’s only through this that we will be able to save ourselves from ourselves.

The Era of Enlightened Activism

waveofactionMany people do see what is going in this world, they do see that the current state of our world is outright abusive, and that it can’t go on as it has – we need to change – this is clear.

The problem with the wave of action that has been spreading throughout the world in various forms, such as for example the Occupy Wall Street-movement, the Arabic Spring – is that there is no clear understanding of HOW to sort out this mess – we do see the problems – but we do not see from WHERE these problems stem – and specifically we don’t see what course of action that will bring forth a lasting and structural solution.

This problem we can be found literally everywhere in all aspects of society, and can also be found in the microcosm of our relationship with ourselves; for example – let’s take a look at my own country of Sweden and what is currently going on in the dimension of crime prevention.

Because what is happening in this arena of the Swedish society, is that it’s slowly falling apart, there is too much crime, and not enough resources to prevent the crime – the polices and attorneys are becoming frustrated because seemingly there is nothing that can be done – and even though the government is pouring more money into the fight against crime, no clear results are visible.

Though, what is it that the Swedish government is missing? Well, the simple fact that crime is not a isolated incidence – crime doesn’t just ‘occur’ – it’s instead a OUTFLOW – it’s a SYMPTOM of an underlying issue that perverts our entire world to become but a survivalist competition where only the strong are allowed to live. Thus, exactly as was the problem with for example the Occupy Wall Street-movement, wherein all attention and focus was fixed on the criminal acts of bankers – no attention and focus is given to sort out the underlying issues.

Thus, let’s take a look at what the underlying issues are – if we self-honestly investigate the nature of the various problems that exist in this world, we are able to see that the absolute majority of them are related to one specific point, one specific aspect of society – and that is – MONEY – or rather – the LACK of money. In our current world system – money is seen and regarded as a commodity that we are able to FIGHT about, and the general view is that we do not have a RIGHT to money – we have but an opportunity to get money – and apparently this opportunity is equal for everyone. But, what happens is that only a select few are able to get their hands on money, and due to the competitive nature that we’ve designed money to exist within, the consequential outflow is that but a few takes it ALL and the rest are forced to fight over the scraps.

This in turn leads a myriad of problems such as for example crime, profiteering, social inequality, blame, revolutions, rebellions, civilian disobedience, and obviously – one of the primary points – fear of SURVIVAL – which will force human-beings to take the most barbarian and ruthless of actions – because they are in their fear of survival not able to consider and expand their view to such concepts as empathy, consideration, care and equality.

Thus, we must now move ourselves into an Era of Enlightened Activism – and what must be the starting point of this new activism is that we target the underlying issues – and that we find PRACTICAL solutions to these underlying issues. And what we must understand is that no form of civil disobedience will have the desired effect – because a SOLUTION must be implemented through political means – by majority rule – it must be an actual and well thought-out proposal and not merely a rebellious act of blame towards those apparently in charge.

We must understand that We Are In Charge – We Decide – We will determine the Solution – and we will determine the Change – thus Activism in order to be effective must be coupled with responsibility – because only when we fully take responsibility for a point in realizing that unless we deliver the solution – there will be no solution; will we be able to effectively bring through change and form a world where we can all live in harmony.

Investigate the Living Income Guaranteed – and realize that there are effective solutions we’re able to implement – that will deal with the underlying issues of this current system – so that we do not anymore have to spend all of our precious time attempting and trying to suppress symptoms and effects.

The Complacency Virus

complacencyThe most common delusion we have that thwarts us from being able to create any change of real significance in this world, is this belief that “everything is okay” – it is as if we have taken a blinder before our eyes that makes us see only what we want to see – and this tends to happen when we have money and a somewhat comfortable life – when we have achieved those points, what sets in is complacency and instead of giving everyone a cool life – we spend the short time we have on this earth trying to satisfy our mental desires.

It should be the other way around, that when we have money, we should understand that we have a opportunity to make a difference, we have the time to spread awareness bring forth change – but what instead happens is that we sink back into the comforts of our minds where we live each day for the sole purpose of filling ourselves with various kinds of positive experiences.

It is fascinating and I see this pattern play out on a daily basis. I have grown up and live in the country of Sweden, and this is a wealthy, industrialized nation where most have a high level of education. Sweden is a country that is in a position of being able to make a difference in this world, because most of us swedes have time on our hands, we can actually make somewhat free choices, because we have money – but what happens instead? Rather we swedes do away with our time on senseless activities, such as drinking, buying more unnecessary things – spending each minute to gain another positive experience – a behavior that is spiteful in its very nature.

Thus, even though we have all the prerequisites necessary to produce a change, we still don’t do it – and why is that? As I said in the beginning, it comes back to complacency, and our tendency to think that everything is okay, because we have the money, and our life is quite comfortable.

But let us look at this presumption that “everything is okay” – because really, can we say that it is?

I mean, fact is that we are all dependent upon money, and fact is that in this world, when we do not have money, the very foundations of our existence will shatter – thus – even though we might think we are safe, because we have money at the money, this is no guarantee – and it is absolutely no guarantee that our children will have access to money. Fact is that our current economic system is slowly crumbling before our very eyes, and even though we might feel comfortable at the moment, we will in time face the consequences – and they will not be pleasant – because what is certain is the current economic system is not sustainable and it will not last.

Thus, what we must realize is that our comfort and the complacency we experience, because everything seems to be fine, it is not real – and each day we are coming closer to the inevitable collapse, wherein also our life will be affected by the ineffectiveness of the current world system – thus – I suggest that we take action now and that we do not wait. Just because we have money, and just because our individual life work at this moment, it doesn’t mean that our collective existence is sustainable – and things will get worse until we stand up and actually bring us to care about our common future and ourselves.

Those of us lucky enough to live in countries where it is still possible to access money, we have a responsibility to spread the word, and show that there is another way to live – and that complacency is really not acceptable – because we have the time and resources, we have the responsibility to act – and we have the responsibility to make sure that all people are endowed with a life worth living – a dignified life – that is what we’d want for ourselves given that we were in the shoes of those less fortunate – so why then not give as we would like to receive?

Read up on the Living Income Guaranteed – and make use of your time, because at some point – it will be all used up – and then there will be no way to go back and change your decisions. We have only this one lifetime – thus – let’s make the best out of it, and see to it that we bring about a world economic system that benefits life and erase poverty forever more – let’s make sure that our children will have a life free from fear.

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.
