In this article I will discuss the notion of ‘property’, and propose a solution for how the institution of property can be changed in an Equal Money System.

Currently property is a form of control that we have created because our society is based on fear and more precisely fear of loss. This means that we have accepted ‘property’ as a means to ‘protect’ ourselves against each other, because of the underlying belief that there is not enough for everyone. Interestingly the word property sounds like poverty – because that is exactly what we have created. A system of exploitation where a small group is able to through the concept of property use and abuse the majority of human beings on this planet, where, mind you half the world exists in actual poverty and 20.000 children starve to death every day.

Yet is the belief ever questioned that ‘there isn’t enough’?

Isn’t it striking that those areas in the world that are experiencing the most dramatic poverty are often also those who are the largest exporters of Food in the world ?

So, clearly – there is something not working in our system.

This is why we propose an Equal Money System – as it is seen that the current economic system is gone out of hand and is no longer able to be adjusted in any beneficial direction. As we can see daily in the news: it is only getting worse.

An Equal Money system is based on the premise that money is merely what we agree it to be. An Equal Money System is a new socioeconomic system where the value of money will be based on the Equal Value of All Life. This means that practically speaking money will no longer be the supreme holder of value – but instead we all agree that instead Life should be valued and supported and not money for the sake of money.

What this practically means is that money will become a tool of distribution and access that will equally be made available to all. In other words: everyone will have Equal Money from birth till death, so that everyone’s practical needs are always met and no one need to experience any form of material lack ever again. This is a mathematical problem that can be worked out once it is acknowledged that there are in fact more than enough resources in the world as is confirmed by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.

This is just to give you a basic understanding as to what it is we are accepting in the current system and what is in fact possible, if we would agree on some new principles to guide decision-making.

So, let’s now turn to property and what property will become in an Equal Money System.

In an Equal Money System there will no longer be property as we currently know it. Here I suggest we replace it with the notion of ‘allocation’. Currently you are through money able to buy an item and then claim this item as yours. Within this you have the ‘legal right’ to dispose of your item as you please, since it is your ‘property’. Hence you are never really accountable for the way you handle that which is given to you, because as the ‘owner’ you are ‘the boss’ and your item is your slave. In an Equal Money system such inequality and abuse will no longer be acceptable, as with ‘allocation’ you are no longer the ‘owner’ of that which is given to you. Instead you become the caretaker, where you understand that there is equality between you and that which is under your care and that you must now look after the item as your child to be entitled to use it.

Let’s take housing as an example. In terms of housing, no one will ‘own’ the house they live in, as everything belongs to the earth, just as your body belongs to the earth. So, to be ‘allocated’ a house will then mean that you are given the care of that house and that you are now (alone or with others) responsible for the house. Allocation thus means an agreement between you and that which you are allocated, to take care of it in the best possible way so that it can be handed to the next person in an optimal state, just as it was given to you.

Obviously allocation will imply a great level of responsibility, which implies not only the willingness but also the practical skill to in fact be able to handle a household and to maintain a physical house. In other words there will be actual training required and practicals to be able to assess whether a person is actually ready to be allocated a house. This can be done with a system of licenses where for all kinds of items you require to have a license. In the example of housing the license could be incorporated in the general education curriculum, where for last year ‘students’, a housing area would be made available with houses for them to live in during the last six months of their year, to learn how to practically take care of a house and to through direct experience learn all the aspects that must be considered within utilizing a house. The readiness of the ‘student’ can then easily be assessed through assessments with feedback – after which a final assessment can be given after a few months to see if the suggestions and the feedback have been applied. Then the ‘student’ receives the license and is then entitled to be allocated a house.

This solution can be applied to any form of allocation, such as allocation of specific high tech materials – which require specific knowledge and maintenance, but also the allocation of animals: where you must prove your ability to take responsibility for that particular animal with full understanding.

Licenses will thus play a major role in an Equal Money System – as the licenses will be the measurement of your practical responsibility skills. Regarding the basic points that would form part of everyone’s requirement, such as housing, modules with licenses would be able to be implemented in the normal curriculum. Hence a normal curriculum will become actual ‘life-training’ – instead of merely the absorption of knowledge and information and to then be sent out into the world with no practical preparation whatsoever.

Allocation through a licensing system is but one of the many points that would drastically change the face of this world.

Fear will no longer exist in relation to you having the right to exist in this world, as Equal Money will facilitate the peaceful coexistence of all human beings – all being equally entitled to be part of this world and explore Life.

This is a quote taken from Jose Graziano de Silva’s submission program – who has now taken the office of Director General in the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.

“During its 65 years of life, FAO can claim to have contributed to a remarkable growth in food output. Average per capita food availability has risen by 40%. Enough food is now being produced to meet the needs of all of the world’s population that has risen in the past 65 years from 2.5 billion to almost 7 billion.

This success in expanding food output, however, has not been enough to overcome hunger. One in seven people in the world – almost one billion people – face hunger every day of their lives, and almost 3 billion more are affected by malnutrition, including health-damaging malnutrition caused by over-consumption of food. In other words, over half of the world’s population suffers from not eating properly. People are hungry, not so much because of lack of food availability, but mainly because they cannot afford the food they need for a healthy and productive life.”

The statement is clear: there is enough food for everyone – but everyone doesn’t have enough money to buy food.

The solutions in Graziano’s program indicate that he is not considering a change in the economic system as a way to change this situation.

So, I will place some perspectives here for anyone involved in governments, NGO’s or international organizations, that should by now be part of your consideration. The points I will discuss are the Basic Income Grant (BIG) and the Equal Money System (EMS).

Simplistically, BIG is a system based on redistribution of money – where the redistribution is done within the bounds and parameters of the current economic and monetary system. Under the BIG system every person in the world has the right to a basic unconditional income to cover all their basic needs. As can be seen from the quote taken from Graziano’s program – (“People are hungry, not so much because of lack of food availability, but mainly because they cannot afford the food they need for a healthy and productive life.”) – this would in effect give everyone access to food and end hunger in the world. 

The decision to implement such a social program – would be a political matter that requires world consensus. Yet, with half the world already being malnourished, it will not be too hard to find a majority who will demand equal access to basic needs, through a BIG system.

An Equal Money system goes completely beyond that – and involves a total transformation of social, political, and economic structures. Here the monetary system itself is replaced with a new monetary system – where money is no longer based on debt – but is simply made available as an abundant resource so that any project that is best for all can always be ‘sponsored’.  Under Equal Money every person in the world is supported from birth till death – to never in their life experience any form of deprivation.

These are practically feasible solutions for this world one should investigate – if one is really serious about creating a better world for All.

It should be clear by now that within the bounds of the current economic system – there will not be any change forthcoming that can stand the test of time. Hence why we propose that BIG should be used as a means to transition towards an EMS. The collapse of the current economic system is inevitable and world hunger will only escalate as long as one try and find solutions while trying to honor this system. With half the world being malnourished – we can say the current system is a holocaust and should therefore no be honored. 

I suggest one investigate BIG and EMS in considerable depth – you may be astounded at the simplicity of it all, and how come you never even heard about it.

In an Equal Money System ‘politicians’ as such will not exist – but there will be positions that need to be taken where a certain level of responsibility is required.  These positions will be filled based on democratic elections – and the best way to describe such a function would be that of an ‘administrator’ rather than a ‘leader’. An important aspect of such a function is that one will only be allowed to do it for 1 term – which would be 1 or 2 years, after which a new administrator is elected to take over your function, after which one will not be allowed to pose as candidate for administrator again. This is to make sure that there is never any possibility for misuse of power – and it also makes clear where the focus must lie: on the principle, not on the personality.

Remember that in an equal Money System everyone will be supported from birth to become a fully self-responsible and effective living being. Hence there will be no requirement for leadership as it exists today – because that is in fact based on separation where the majority have abdicated their responsibility towards their reality and towards the whole world to a select group of people, to have them be responsible, and who are then given carte blanche to abuse in the name of ‘the common good’.

In an Equal Money system great responsibility will be expected from everyone – because only when taking responsibility for oneself and one’s world – can one really be an honorable being. Therefore the current system of politics and entertainment is a system that promotes dishonor, limitation and slavery. To give away one’s responsibility is an act of fear – because one is unwilling to face that self- is in fact responsible. Is it then such a mystery that in today’s world everyone blames the politicians and the elite?  Blame is much easier than taking responsibility – and it also indicates that self is still unwilling to take responsibility and will divert all attention from this fact through blaming another.

In an Equal Money System such behavior will not be accepted – and all will be supported to face their inner demons and learn to take responsibility for themselves and their reality.  What is currently being tested and explored within the Desteni I process is already showing that it is possible for a being to take directive charge of themselves and their lives – and that one can learn how to stop ones self-obsessed way of existing and that it is possible to live in a way that is considerate of others as equal as self. 

In an Equal Money system there will be no separation between ‘politicians’ and ‘the public’ – because everyone will simply be empowered to take responsibility wherever they can. This will in turn make the media as it currently exists obsolete because the media has mainly existed as a tool or a medium that stood in between the public and the politicians – a tool that does not exist for the purpose of providing clarity and clear communication, but to divert attention and hide the real important issues.

In an Equal Money system the administrators will not have to be worried about what the media will say about them – as the media will no longer be an institution based on manipulation, gossip and profit, but instead be a collaboration of people, based on real interest and passion, on how to organize and disseminate information locally and all around the world. Within this the emphasis will be to allow for all perspectives to equally be heard and equally be accessible. This will be done through giving everyone in fact equal access to the same technology that allows for such communication to exist. The way to do that is by giving everyone Equal Money from birth to death.  No more marginalization.

What must be considered within this is that ‘free access’ to goods and products does not come without responsibility. In the current consumerist system everyone with enough money can give themselves access to a product or technology – without any self-responsibility of the ‘consumer’ being required as such. Thus, someone can buy a product, without taking full responsibility for it, because after one has acquired ‘ownership’ of the product, being the owner implies that one can dispose of the product as one pleases, which implies that one have ‘the right’ and the ‘free choice’ to for instance be careless with it or to use it in an abusive manner.  This kind of abuse will no longer be tolerated in an Equal Money system, because it extends to all areas where a sense of ‘ownership’ exists: it will bring with it ‘the right to abuse’. This is also clear in relations between parents and children for instance, where the parents perceive the child is in a way their property. This point however will be developed in more depth in another article. Let’s for the moment return to the point of politicians.

In an Equal Money system a ‘politician’ will simply be a servant – a guardian of the system – who makes sure that in the first place the Equal Money System keeps running, so that everyone is at all times supported,  and secondly ensures the administration of all the collective decision making processes on how the system can be improved.

Practically this means that he or she will have to administer online forums that are accessible to all and anyone.  In these forums suggestions will be shared in a structured manner so that each participant is able to asses whether what is said is best for all or if it requires improvement to be able to stand as a the solution to a problem or as a viable alternative to an already existing approach. This means that there will be communication regulations one have to adhere to, to make the process as effective as possible. For instance one will have to explain the problem, why or where the current solution is not yet best for all – and how the new solution is superior to the old one in that it solves more problems and is more beneficial to all participants.

Hence one must understand that all political decisions will be made in complete openness where the process of how a decision was made can completely be traced back in all its steps.

The role of the media in this regard will be limited – as there will be no more ‘secrets’ to reveal or hidden plots to expose. Hidden politics will simply not be allowed. Everything must always immediately be shared in a public forum so that there is full transparency at all times.

If you are interested in a future where everyone has an Equal say and where all Life is Equally valued – I would say don’t wait and join us.

Starvation is currently accepted as one of the conditions of humanity’s earthy existence. It is presented as being part of being here.

“This earthly existence is simply too tough to manage – and there is simply no other way but to abuse each other for at least ‘a majority’ to be able to ‘prosper’”.

What is not realized is that all the conditions that are perceived as being the limitations and harsh conditions of “this earthy existence” are actually the result of deliberate choices made by human beings – and how we as humanity have decided to manage our existence as a group.

For instance: the earth grows plants and vegetables that are nutritious to human beings – yet the cultivation and distribution of these foods are then a point that is the responsibility of the human being.

It is a well known fact that in terms of food availability – there is more than enough recourses to support every being on the planet.

Yet the systems we have put in place to facilitate the cultivation and distribution of the recourses are not based on the intention to support all beings equally – but on how these recourses can be used to give some an advantage over others, because fundamentally the belief is accepted that life is a struggle and one must abuse in other to survive.

Therefore through the current money system humanity has set up and created its own excuse as to why it’s is impossible to stand together as a group in which all are equally taken care of, because we have made sure that in its foundation humanity stands divided, using fear and competition.

In a way that is why the Equal Money system is feared and opposed so extensively whenever it is being presented and explained. Because if the current  system is removed and replaced with a new economic foundation based on equality and all-inclusivity – then each one will be able to see that there is no need to continue the way they currently exist – and that change is actually possible.  

Technically speaking it is already within our reach to end mass-poverty and starvation on Earth. This is merely a matter of numbers and logistics and doesn’t require a new scientific discovery.  All it really takes is a political decision and the determination to pull this through on a world scale –meaning: it would require co-operation on all levels of decision making. This includes government and corporate. Therefore in order for an equal system to be set in place and implemented a co-operation must exist on the government and corporate level worldwide. Together with this a major adjustment is required in the monetary systems: money must be completely stripped of its current functionality and given a new functionality: to be a an empowering medium that enables humanity to facilitate a global system based on equality and Human Rights – instead of it being a tool to enslave through debt.

The proof that Equal Money will End starvation and poverty is that there exist food surpluses everywhere around the world – this includes the regions where people are actually starving. Therefore as soon as the point of equal distribution is given proper direction through an equal money system – you end starvation, because Equal Money for all means: equal access for all!

The only way this can work is if it is agreed upon by all of humanity that profit is harmful to life and that instead now money will be designed to support Life.

This is the Equal Money System: an equal income for all Human Beings on earth, from Birth till Death, so that no one ever need to worry about ‘survival’ – and instead we can start focusing on how we want to live together.

You think that’s impossible?

Are you sure you’ve not been brainwashed?  

Investigate…

I found a documentary online, “Secret Life of Japan” which I recommend everyone to watch.  It tells the story of how economic insecurity is driving high numbers of people in Japan to suicide (more than 33.000 every year). People lose their jobs due to “restructuring” of the companies and become marginalized, being unable to find new jobs or financial support.

It showed how a high level executive ended up as a bum in the park – showing how this can happen to anyone.

In a related documentary, “Aokigahara: the suicide Forest”, it is reported how every year up to a hundred people in Japan go to the forest Aokigahara and never come back.

Japan is not alone in this, a similar situation exists in India – where regions are hit with high numbers of farmer suicides due to poverty and more specifically being in debt. “Secret Life in Japan” showed how debt was a factor as well in most suicide-cases – where people simply see no other way but to end their lives, regardless of family and children.

Japan suicides are but one example of the outflows of the current system – that is operating in exactly the same way everywhere in the world. The foundation of this is the money system that is based on survival and debt. The money that comes into circulation always has negative value – it is already debt from the start – because that is how the system was arranged and agreed upon on paper. (Did you know that?) The current money-system in fact expresses humanity’s agreement that life is worthless, because there is never enough money for everyone to pay off their debts. This is why currently half the world is poor, with 20.000 children starving each day and 1 billion going to sleep every night with an empty stomach.

There is no actual scarcity, only lack of money.

Did you know that there is largely sufficient capacity to feed, clothe, educate and support every human being on earth – to the extent that everyone could lead a dignified and wealthy life?

For instance: “The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) found in a 1997 study that 78% of all malnourished children under five in the developing world live in countries with food surpluses” (read full article)

Did you know that?

I suggest investigate a new system based on the value of life – where life is actually supported and cared for from birth. This is not an outrageous speculation, but a mathematical provable solution. Investigate the Equal Money system. The current system is a holocaust and you are here and part of it – so stand up and be part of the solution. Join us on www.equalmoney.org.

“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.

In Bahrain people are being imprisoned, beaten and tortured by government forces – who are implementing a reign of terror to suppress and silence the discontent of the masses. This is happening alongside the ‘revolutions’ in Egypt and other countries in the region – yet much less reported on, as it seems American interests are more mixed over the issue and have much less of an influence over what is happening there.

This world is such a mess – people will scream rape and murder when their relatives are in some way harmed – when their fellow countrymen are ‘in danger’ – yet no consideration exists for human beings as such – when human beings in a foreign far away country are being abused, raped, tortured and killed – then it is just ‘news’.

In a way people don’t realize what is really happening in this world – especially as some parts of the world are simply being defined as ‘unstable’ and ‘warzones’ – through which is being implied that war and instability will somehow always exist – as if there is a purpose to these atrocities that are continuously being allowed.

What is the massacre in Bahrain about? It’s about Power and control. The families in power not wanting to give up their position of superiority and control over other human beings – wanting to remain ‘God’ over their domain… Revolutions and uprisings will not stop until a real solution is found that places LIFE FIRST instead of MONEY.

The world we currently exist in is the result of history and the way in which we have always existed. An endless game of superiority and inferiority – masters and slaves – revolutions merely causing two parties to `change position` though never breaking the cycle.

In the Western countries this has become `less apparent` because what has happened is that the West is in its entirety dominating the South – where the polarity is now playing out on a world-level between countries. It would therefore `help` to start seeing this world as ONE place – yes, even as `one country` – imagine if we started like that – to stop all nationalism by agreeing that from now on all the nations in the world will be united as `one country` in which everyone is included – without even changing the physical dispersion of humanity on the globe – no – simply saying: `now everywhere on earth is one and the same country` – just so we can get over this mindfuck where we don`t even see or acknowledge the extent to which we abuse each other simply because the consequences are manifesting in some `remote country`.

Obviously to merely change `names` will not alter manifested unequal relationships – that has to be corrected through an entirely new social system. We have suggested that this can be done with an Equal Money System – where each and every single person in the world would receive an EQUAL basic income – which would eliminate all poverty overnight and end the polarity of ‘the rulers’ and ‘the ruled’ – as everyone would be placed in an equal position from birth.

The situation in Bahrain is a consequence of what this entire world exists as – which makes everyone responsible.

A simple question, would you have been indifferent if your child had been there on a holiday while the violence started?
