Archive for the ‘Ghent’ Category

 

Last week we received two different brochures in the mailbox where one was originating from the town administration, sharing the great achievements that had been done for the town of Ghent in terms of leisure projects and public construction, which are all points that are said to add to the value of Ghent as a place to live – while the other brochure was amongst others exposing how the town administration was actually wasting money on such projects while the town is actually facing a growing number of people who are no longer able to afford normal living conditions, such as paying for a decent place to live – and pointing out that the town marketing is misdirecting the budget for projects that should not be given priority and that only add to the market value of Ghent, while a large portion of it’s inhabitants are deliberately being neglected and considered to be of no value.   

What is striking is that when one would receive only the first brochure which glorifies the town achievements one would really believe that Ghent is a beautiful and benevolent place. Yet, when checking the reality behind this picture, one will find that this effort to build a great picture is the result of a deliberate choice to not support everyone equally but instead choose for quick glory and personal gratification.

How can one claim that poverty and inequality are ‘difficult issues’ – while at the same time millions are being wasted for the pleasure and entertainment of that portion of the population who live above a certain level of comfort? Isn’t this the most backwards reasoning possible?

Clearly this shows that what is valued and ‘cared for’ is money, and not the inhabitants. If the inhabitants were placed first all the money would first be allocated according to who needs it the most, and then if there is something left one could look at entertainment.

This issue reflects a serious problem in the common sense of Humanity – as the numbers of worldwide poverty rare showing, where incredible reasons are given as to why it is ‘difficult’ to for instance end world poverty and world hunger, while at the same time exorbitant amounts of money are being spent everywhere around the world just for entertainment and even downright harmful means.

If all of humanity were to agree on one simple thing, namely what is priority in the context of what is best for everyone together – then it is clear and obvious to me that the greatest issues of suffering and inequality in this world would be able to be sorted out in no time. As it has already been noted, with the US’s yearly military spending alone one could feed and educate the whole world for many many years.

Such forms of abuse should be exposed in all possible ways to show that none of the atrocities humanity is now busy justifying at great length (this in itself also costs a lot of money!!!), are necessary in any way whatsoever and that they only exist because no one is willing to go against the flow of greed and self-interest to bring common sense to the world. Imagine: every day 1 billion people go to sleep with an empty stomach. What if that was you – would you not agree that humanity as a whole is absolutely fucked up? Would you not insist that first everyone needs to be taken care of in their basic needs before attention is given to secondary needs? Wouldn’t you say WTF ???!!!!.

Consider that a change in the system is possible to End this suffering and abuse. Investigate Equal Money, as an actual solution and a new starting point for this world, based on priorities in the context of what is best for all.    

It is perfectly possible to provide decent housing, education, nutrition, electricity, water, clothes, and any other technical support for every human being in this world. Join the research at http://equalmoney.org

I’m now in the process of looking for a new apartment and I’d like to share an observation I made after having visited several different apartments/houses.  

So, it happened a couple of times that I would enter an apartment/house and would think to myself that the space is actually nicely furnished – in terms of the furniture being chosen to fit with the interior. However – people have this thing that when they leave a place and move to the next – they take all their furniture with them… I find this impractical for more than one reason, because now everyone who move is taking their furniture with them all the time – from one place to the next: every time emptying the house as much as possible, taking everything that is not attached to the walls and taking it with – leaving empty rooms that need to be completely refurnished for them to be habitable.

So, it occurred to me that people are only doing this because they believe their furniture is precious and more valuable than that of others – and because they know that if they’re going to enter a new place the old inhabitants will have taken all their furniture away as well – such a sad story !

How I see it is it would be far more practical if everyone just leave their furniture where it is – because it was most often than not specifically chosen to fit with a particular interior – where one would then know that wherever one go – the former inhabitants will have left all their furniture in the house. Because what is the point of everyone every time taking all their furniture with like weasels? It just make it impractical for everyone – I say leave the furniture !  Stop being a spoiler !

The reason why this point is now part of culture is because furniture is regarded as ‘capital’ as well – and because capital is scarce, one should ‘hold on’ to one’s capital. It’s like people are still nomads – travelling around with their furniture, without even realizing this – fascinating….

Investigate what will be possible in a world of Equal Money for All…

“Anyone going to college essentially is gambling… Once again, from an investor’s point of view, right now – the way the dollar is, the way inflation is going up, and the way the job market is – a college education just isn’t a good investment… and not a good return on your money.”  — Gennady Litvin, Dept & Bankruptcy Attorney

There was a revealing interview done by RT, called “Brain, No Gain: College a bad investment for jobless US grads”  – from which the above quote is taken.

The interview explains very clearly how at the moment the American economy is in an alarming state of crisis because half of last year’s college graduates are still unemployed to this day. This is because the job market is tightening up to such an extent that even people with qualified degrees can end up on the streets or jobless and in great debt. The US has an allowance for banks to lend money to students as college money – though these amounts are exorbitantly high. One girl speaks of having 60.000 US dollars in debt – a boy mentions even 90.000 US dollars.

Clearly these students have been duped – and have merely been used as ‘human resource’ to make money for the universities and the banks.  

So yes, an entire generation will be lost – and the future ones even more so as long as the current system is ‘kept’ as the ‘best way to exist on earth’ – which is now in a crisis of which many have already said it cannot be fixed and will eventually collapse. The numbers are quite obvious and speak for themselves. Some have dared to speak of a ‘recovery’ – US debt is now at 14 trillion US dollars – that is 6 trillion more than last year – and Europe has now 3 countries that have gone broke under the Euro and many already speculate about who will be the next to ‘fall’ – to me it looks like the system is crashing down in slow motion.

Understand – there will be no solution coming forth that will actually stop the direction in which the world economies are headed – and thus the situation will only get worse.

There is no sufficient understanding of what is causing the problem – as is proven by the many predictions of recovery done by the greatest experts – and there is no willingness to look at what would actually benefit the majority of human beings – which is supposedly the principle of democracy, therefore democracy doesn’t exist.

So, the solution is simplistic – one need to ‘think radical’ and be able to deal with reality: currently half the world (more than 3 Billion people) are living in poverty with 1 Billion on the brink of starvation every day. This atrocity used to be justified by saying that the economic system is beneficial to the West and creating wealth for the West… Though as the example in this interview is demonstrating this is no longer the case – soon we will all be losers under the current system. So, it’s time the former elite make up their mind as to what kind of world they will be creating for their children and their children to come.

At the moment the picture looks pretty grim – and there are crisis in many areas: from financial to ecological to humanitarian – though which all tie together.

The point is that such play-outs can be avoided and are not a necessary path for humanity – though that will require great effort and willingness to stand together as a group that care for each other. We’ve suggested that it is time an Equal Money system be considered as a solution to the current crisis – because within such a structure all of humanity can be integrated as one group of equals, where every single child born is immediately supported through the system of equal unconditional income.

This will transcend all borders.

End all wars.

End all exploitation.

End the struggle for survival.

Everyone will be equally supported and cared for – do you believe that is materially impossible?

Look at what infrastructure, logistics and money are put in play for causes of war – and think again.

Thus – do your research on equal money, what it actually means and stands for and become part of the solution.

Soon there will be a number of  Books published dealing in greater detail with the outlooks of the system, so stay tuned.
