I was looking at the desire for fame and how this currently exists in the world.

I then asked myself, will such desire still exist in and Equal Money System? And if not – then why not?

I came to the conclusion that the desire for fame as it currently exists, actually expresses lack of self-acceptance. In fact, a form of absolute self-worthlessness – that one will try to compensate through the desire to be or become famous.

When looking at the question of self-value – one must look at: what is the thing that is most valued in today’s world? What is the thing that everyone in this world is striving to get? The answer to that is money. Thus through looking at how money is allocated you can see what is regarded as worthwhile and what is seen as worthless.

The fact that a baby born into this world does not automatically receive money as support, shows that the being born in this world is regarded as worthless. This may shock you as this is not how things are generally presented. In general, it is said that a baby is a new life and is ‘precious’ beyond anything. Yet, this is mere lip service and actually deception. Have a look: there is no system in place that makes sure there is more than enough money in place to welcome all the newly born children in this world. Instead the care for the newly born child is completely left up the financial capacity of the parents/caretakers – which in a few cases may mean the child will grow up in an environment of wealth and abundance – or, in most cases: it will mean the child will grow up in an environment of poverty and deprivation. As it stands currently, there are more than 20.000 children starving from hunger and preventable diseases every day. More than 3 billion people in the world are living below the poverty line and one billion go to sleep every night with an empty stomach. 

How can a child develop self-worth – when they are made clear that they do not deserve food to support themselves and that it doesn’t matter to the world whether they exist or not?

The middle class is just as affected by this, because you will note that the fact that a child does not receive unconditional support through a system of equal care for all – will cause back-chat in the minds of the parents where they start developing animosity towards the child, because ‘the child cost them so much money’. This in turn is the source of child abuse and domestic violence – because the parents start feeling like a slave to the child – and then will start abusing it. This abuse can be physical but also mental – through words and manipulation.

Thus, it is clear that the current money system is actually a system of hate and separation – and that human beings are simply not given the space to develop in a stable manner.

So – imagine now if from the start the child is welcomed with joy – and this joy is expressed through an unconditional grant that is made available to support every child. Will money ever be an issue that can be used against the child?  No. It will be made clear to EVERY CHILD BORN IN THIS WORLD that they are welcome and deserve to exist and to be supported.

Imagine that.

This is basic common sense.

A child will thus develop self-acceptance and self-worth much more easily – and it will also have an immediate sense of respect for all Life – because it was treaded as an equal part of life from day one, and thus to be ‘generous’ towards Life will be much easier.

Hence, the desire for fame will most likely fade in an equal money system – because through the platform of equal money for all, self-acceptance and self-worth will be able to be developed very effectively in children.

This doesn’t mean that there will not be any beings who are not ‘well known’ in an Equal Money system – though this will not come forth out of a desire for recognition, it will instead exist based on someone’s commitment and self-responsibility as an equal member of the system.  

Clearly, someone who has not sorted out their self-acceptance and self-value issues, should not be allowed anywhere near any position of responsibility – as their actions will simply be ego-based and not best for all, as can be seen for instance with politicians in today’s world.

What needs to be understood when answering this question – is that laws in the current system are written to protect the system and never to support the individual. They only have a function and purpose in the current system – where the starting point is survival and the struggle for money.

What will happen with the implementation of the Equal Money system is that most of the laws that currently exist  – will be deleted as they have no purpose in the new system.

For instance, with inmates that have ‘broken the law’ in the previous system such as in the case of ‘theft’ – when it can easily be assessed that the person was only acting out of necessity in the system to survive; such a person will be rehabilitated when the new system is implemented. In fact all ‘crimes’ that have been committed in the old system that were motivated by money and survival will rather quickly be rehabilitated.

The reason for this is that the ‘danger’ they allegedly presented to society – was really an outflow of the conditions set by the system. To give one example: with the amount of money that is currently in circulation as currency – there is actually not enough to pay off all the debt in the world. To, within such conditions uphold a system of laws as apparent morality and justice in which the individual is to blame for his desperate behavior – is pure cruelty and unacceptable abuse.

The criterion is very simple: would the ‘crime’ have been able to be committed in an Equal Money system, where every being is supported from birth to never in their life have to experience scarcity or any form of material lack? If the answer is ‘no’ (because why would the person steal money from their neighbor if everyone is monthly receiving the exact same amount of money with which they can largely cover their basic needs?) – then clearly we are dealing with a case of provocation on the part of the system – and the supporters of this system should then be held accountable and not the individual who merely suffered a mathematical outflow of the conditions set in this system. 

So, this is with regards to crimes that were committed, but where it can be determined that they weren’t actually crimes, because every person – given the circumstances – would have acted in exactly the same manner.

Other crimes where the link between the act on the one hand and the context of money and survival on the other hand is less apparent – will need more scrutiny. In some cases, the conclusion will be the same as in the above examples – in others the conclusion will be that the person actually requires assistance to stop their harmful behavior, which means the person is to participate in a ‘self-responsibility program’ – where they learn to stop themselves from harming others. This can be in the context of rape-, and violence- and murder cases.

Another example would be drug abuse. A large portion of today’s inmates are incarcerated for drug related crimes. If we are speaking about crimes resulting out of a drug addiction as such then clearly the person must prove that they are able to stand clear from the addiction – which must be done under supervision, after which rehabilitation can ensue. If the drug crime was merely a way to get money without drug addiction being involved as such then immediate rehabilitation should also be considered, because there is really no difference between selling alcohol on market or selling heroine – and bartenders are not put to prison.

In an Equal Money System the focus will change from incarceration and monetary fines as a penal system to re-education through re-education centers. A re-education center is a place where a person is placed to get support with stopping their destructive behavior.   

The starting point of an equal money system is self-responsibility of the individual. This means that a person will always first be supported to take responsibility for themselves and come to a self-directed change – instead of being judged and condemned a priori. The way a person will be assisted is through being offered a total training in self-forgiveness and self-corrective action – under supervision, until the person has proven that they can live and work together with other people in a dignified manner.

If such change however does not come about then the person has actually made a statement that they are unwilling to take responsibility for themselves and that they are unwilling to change.

In such case they have actually given up their right to self-determination and can thus be put away as per their own permission. This is a matter of common sense: if a person keeps repeating the same patterns of abuse – such as raping children – even after an opportunity is given for self-change through self-forgiveness and self-corrective action – and still the person continues, then there is no point in keeping the person around and there is no more forgiveness.

In an Equal Money system actual justice and fairness will exist because everyone will receive an equal opportunity and an equal start in the system.  This will be ensured through equal access to education, equal access to housing, equal access to electricity, equal access to food, equal access to clothing, etc. for everyone. Everyone will receive equal unconditional support. Therefore no one will be able to claim that they were disadvantaged as an excuse for abusive behavior – and the measures that are in such cases imposed on an individual such as re-education will then be justified.

The conclusion is therefore that crime in an EMS will greatly diminish – as the inequalities that were causing violence and crime will be removed. Equal Money Ends all slavery – and therefore there will be no more suppressed injustice – with every participant being supported and given attention as an equal.

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…
