Why : Money was introduced to human culture when migrating tribes began to trade food, resources and tools, in order to place value on any item for trade we gave it monetary value.
Flaw : Stratification has always been inherent in the system of monetary value, values were/are based on simple availability and accessibility (abundance v scarcity)
Result 1 : Those who understand this system can profit with ease, but always at the expense of another, each time a profiteer is able to manipulate availability, accessibility or scarcity of an item he manipulates it’s trade value and gain wealth over others.
Result 2 : The system continues to self perpetuate and benefit those who choose to play the game of competition with others, as wealth growth it becomes increasingly simple to manipulate value with increasing means to do so, stratification grows.
Result 3 : Disaster is in motion with the value justification that is called ”supply and demand”, with this simple premise we have experienced exponential growth and development but at great expense. To base value on supply and demand has created an insane system whereby Scarcity = Profit, this is a system of inhumane levels of scarcity, destruction and deprivation.
Solution : The solution to creating abundance, sustainability and provision for all people of the world is in the scientific method – The value of the worlds resources must be decided through transparent survey and data analysis which in turn will influence production and distribution (as proposed by Jacque Fresco).
Future perspective : Never let any claim that we need ”money”. What is needed is simply a willingness to share, followed by transparent surveys and statistical data leading to efficient production and free access to all goods and services.
There is constant talk about our rights. About having them curtailed, about human rights abuses and the like. This is a concept that is in itself a form of control. It stems from a time when many were chattels of a ruler, held under threat and tradition. In our natural state we have no rights. We in fact have no need of rights. All that is possible is permissible with responsibility. Only when we are oppressed and actions are forbidden under threat, the concept of rights has any meaning at all. It is what those who oppress deign to or have been forced to allow. So, we need to realize that naming such self-evidences, that should not be alienable at all, allows them to exercise power over them. To think about and thus question our rights is to bow before our oppressors.
However, the very idea of freedom is inevitable, unalienable and eternal.
You may think that this is just semantics, but to be free we must cultivate the thought patterns of freedom. We need to understand what freedom really is. Those that think free are not easily swayed by the insidious temptations, or cowered by the threats, veiled or otherwise, of those who would seek to use you for their gain.
Our thoughts are the battle ground.
Until the coming of the species’ enlightenment, there will always be those who would use you. This is your defense. Remember that even if your body has been constrained, your thoughts can be free if you so choose.
