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.
