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?

“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.

I give a quick review of where I am currently at in my process and what are some of the points I am busy with – such as studying law and the courses I subscribed for this semester and how to practically manage that in time
