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.

I had the opportunity to see the documentary Waiting for Superman a while ago, which talks about the American school system and exposes the mechanisms that keep the quality of education in America in a very bad state.

A large amount of numbers are shown in this movie to establish that yes, the United States are dealing with a serious problem throughout their education, causing massive amounts of children to drop out of school and causing the overall population to be poorly educated.

Then they take a look at what the reasons for this could be, because on the one hand they have these very bad figures, while on the other hand they do have schools that seem to work comparatively better, where new forms of learning are able to be tested out and children systematically produce better results.

What is ultimately asserted as the main cause for this problem is that under the American school system it is extremely difficult to get a schoolteacher fired. There had been some attempts by certain politicians to effect change by firing large amounts of teachers who were known to not do their job properly – yet what they faced was a heavy procedure that made this nearly impossible. This procedure in turn is the work of the teacher-Unions, who initially had tried to ‘protect’ teachers and ‘stand up for the rights of teachers’.

So, the point of the teacher-contract and the teacher-unions are pointed at as the cause why the public school system in America is ‘unable to improve’ – however what is missed within this, is that there is yet a deeper factor which determines the behavior of the teacher-unions and the apparent greed of the teachers. This is the socio-economic factor. Namely: it is not questioned that it is normal for a person to be able to get fired from their job and then simply be without income.

In other words: the cause of the bad public school system in America is not due to the teacher Unions per say, but due to the acceptance of a system in which one need to wage labor in order to have access to money to be able to survive. Hence, it is the consequence of the de-valuation of life which is expressed through our current economic system.

Imagine what would happen to schools if the teacher was not standing there because he/she needs money to pay his/her bills? But instead ONLY because he/she is motivated to the bone to find the best possible way to teach the children some skills that will make them more self-responsible and self-reliable human beings. There seem to exist teachers who really ‘love their job’ – but as the documentary proves that is not enough to produce decent overall education. As long as the primary motivation for teaching is money – one will not be able to trust public schooling.

Hence it is clear that the poor education in America is but merely a facet of a much bigger problem, namely the socio-economic system that not only America – but, by now, pretty much the whole world have agreed upon. A system in which only half of the world is supported and the rest is either existing in poverty or either experiencing downright starvation.  

It is clear that public schooling is not here to benefit the children – because if that were the case the children would have been able to question the system, and as they grow older, decide that an alternative must be created. Instead as is shown in the documentary, they are demoralized and pushed to ‘give up’.  

Only when the socio-economic foundation of the system is replaced with one of Equal Unconditional support for all, will it be possible to start looking at education for real – because now every and all decisions made in this world are governed by money – and never by what is best for the child.

Are you interested in a world where life is actually valued and real education is possible?

Today I came across some interesting articles regarding Dominique Villepin, who is former French prime minister, and his idea of a national basic income for all Frenchmen… which is termed a “revenu citoyen garanti”. A guaranteed income for all citizens. This project will be taken into the 2012 presidential elections for France by Villepin – so I found it worthwhile to investigate as he is considered to be an influential politician.

From what I could gather from articles and a video interview done by himself – the plan is to give every citizen a basic income of 850 euro a month who does not have any other source of income. This is supposed to be a ‘security net’ that should restore the citizens’ dignity – in that no citizen will be allowed to exist in financial insecurity as ‘France is a wealthy country’.

To be clear – the idea is based on redistribution through a ‘targeted taxation system’ that will allow to support those Frenchman who are currently without income. And there is mention of a 30 Billion euro budget to make this happen… so clearly the proposed ‘change’ is within the bounds of the current economic and monetary system – and therefore will not give a sustainable solution in the long run.

I have a general interest in any program that supports a basic income for all – even though here, as in all of the other branches of the universal income project – the point is still approached from within the current existing monetary an economic system and therefore not a real solution.

The technical cause of the crisis is the monetary system itself – which is inherently unstable because it is based on inequality (profit is a relationship of inequality) and therefore it can never include all of humanity – as there must always be large numbers of human beings to be exploited so that a minority can make a profit.     

It would however be interesting if France would actually get to a point of actually trying Villepin’s program – as that will make it clear that a completely new economic and monetary system is actually required for any real change to actually be possible. What do I mean with real change? With real change I mean to actually change the human experience on earth – from an existence of competition, struggle and survival to a point of freedom, dignity and equality.

The ‘point’ with the equal basic income – is that it has to be done by implementing a new monetary  system altogether, through which one can simply generate the money required to allocate to everyone equally. This money system will be different from the current one in that your money will only be able to be used once, as the purpose of the money will merely be to ensure equal distribution and to prevent abuse. Thus money will no longer be a symbol of ‘power’ that one can accumulate, but only a means of communication. Historically speaking it will be the ‘end of capitalism’ – because what is capitalism? It is that point in human history where money became a trading commodity in itself – which is where the economy stopped making any sense, as one could now make money directly from money itself. But it will also be the end of profit altogether. As the starting point for exchange will no longer be to take advantage of each other – but to actually support each other. Unimaginable !

Let’s have a look at profit. The principle of profit is that I want to exchange good or services with someone in such a way that I get MORE out of the exchange than what I put into it. So, somehow I will always have to convince the other person to accept my unequal bargain so that I may ‘win’ from the deal. Therefore to make profit always involves an element of ‘stealing’. Thus if all of humanity engage in such behavior – you end up with half the world living in absolute poverty – which is precisely the situation we have in fact created. That point alone should make any sane person realize that profit should be made illegal as an unspeakable crime against humanity.

So – back to Villepin – the solution he presents is not a real solution unfortunately – as it does not actually challenge the current existing economic order of profit and gain – nor the banking system and the monetary system that perpetuate inequality and abuse on a world-scale.

To find out what a real solution could look like that includes everyone, investigate Equal Money and join the research.

“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?

While many realize this world is in fact an economic prison, not many will dare to stand up and suggest a different route be taken altogether. The main reason for this is that most are simply too pre-occupied with ‘survival’ and feel trapped in the system. Therefore, a solution had to be found – one that considers the current state most find themselves in. The question is, how to give someone who is mostly pre-occupied with money and how to make money, a realistic opportunity where they would consider a better solution for the world?

The answer is Money. Where Jesus spoke the words: “give up all your possessions and follow me” – Desteni offers a more practical approach through the ‘Desteni I Process’: where one not only get to know oneself and learn how to break free from one’s conditioned limitations, but also actually secure one’s future through earning an income that will grow over the years.

So, for all those who have been eager to ‘do something’ about this fucked up reality, but never knew ‘how’ – here is your opportunity to prove that you were actually serious: join the ‘Desteni I Process’, and help us through helping yourself.

Understand that the ‘Desteni I Process’ is also a vehicle to accumulate the necessary funds for the political implementation and bringing about of an Equal Money System in 20 years time – thus you are directly investing in a better future for humanity by participating in the DIP.

So, check it out and do your own math.
