There Is Enough For Everyone

There Is Enough For Everyone

For many centuries humans have been working in social organizations on this planet creating things that have been passed on to the succeeding generations. Cities abound. The rivers have been tamed. Roads lead everywhere. Need I continue? A lot of work has already been done. Humans have been very busy for a long time. We have many old societies and their work has been added to the inventory of mankind. Much has changed since the days of tribes.

The changes in the lives of humans over the past few hundred years or less brought about by such things as the industrial revolution and invention have caused society to strain at its confines. People are living longer and the planet is hosting near seven billion of us by now. The systems that got us where we find ourselves today cannot maintain the population; not because the planet cannot support us but because the systems that have us cannot. They are too inefficient.

Most of us have to work to live in society but the mechanizations of production have reduced the need for our labor while increasing the amount of production. There is more available now than at any known previous time. Abundance has come creeping into the pyramid, monetary, and class systems causing systems to falter.

In case you don’t know already, let me tell you. Abundance is bad for business. The value of something in the monetary system is determined by the demand compared to the supply. When many want something that is rare, it commands a higher price than those things that few want and are abundant. Diamonds are expensive because they are rare and many want them. It is not nearly as simple as I am putting it here, but the fact that abundance is bad for business is what needs to be shown—not the subtle aspects of commercialism in supply and demand. The profit to be earned with diamonds would fall precipitously if there were more of them. Scarcity is good for business.

The systems that control our lives depend on shortage of the things we want and need to get us to do what they want us to do. Starving masses will go to war. To feed your family, you will go to work at a job you hate for most of your lives. If food was plentiful and easily acquired, things would be different. Have you ever wondered why plants that produce food are not growing everywhere? If we wanted, we could have fruit trees and edible plants growing wild across the planet. But then, how could food be used to make money and to get people to do things? Such abundance is undesirable in the monetary system. So, we just accept the things we think we cannot change. Getting you to think you cannot change something is a good way to keep you in line.

To fight the advent of abundance, terrible things are in play. War does a lot to dispose of abundance, including an abundance of males. Waste works well, too. Inefficiency is wonderful. There are many such things. You can discover them for yourself, if you want. It is becoming harder and harder, though, to keep the lid on abundance. Robotics and mass production keep increasing it. Invention adds to the ease with which we create things. The ability of the systems to create jobs for the growing population is being diminished by the very things that are making abundance grow.

In a monetary system, jobs are essential. Too few jobs causes disaster. You know it as “unemployment.” Creating jobs is a highly publicized mission of government these days. We live in a world that requires that everyone works all their lives; for the most part. The only way to get the things we need is to buy them with money and the only way to get money is to work. The work can be operating a business or being employed by one. When too many people have no money, things start to get crazy. Those at the top know this and have been very ingenious in their ability to maintain a delicate balance.

Unfortunately there is another method of acquiring money, and it pays very well. Speculation. Money is used to earn more money. Now, I have to fight the urge to go into too much detail about this avenue to money. It is complicated and its effects on the lives of the people and the world are dramatic. There seems to be a glaring ignorance about the world of speculation and financial wizardry. One thing, though, is easily seen when your view is pointed toward it. That is the fact that those who make money by manipulating money are not contributing to society. They are taking without giving. In 2012 approximately 45 percent of the GDP was this sort of earnings.

I am aware of the convoluted reasons that some of you will give to support the sophistry that the money speculators are bringing something to society. To you, I say this: let’s all do it. Let’s all make our money by manipulating money. Let’s buy and sell debt to make money, for example. We will just teach everyone how to do it and pretty soon no one will have to work. Everyone will be happy. Right! Making money by manipulating money is pure theft made legal and acceptable. Wake up! When people get lots of money prices go up and when they are getting the money without producing anything, scarcity is maintained in a world where abundance is trying to occur naturally.

Furthermore, the outcry that comes from the statement above are further proof that the ability to reason has been murdered. People will say that the application of ones earnings to speculative ventures is the way things get done. Okay! I know how it works, so what else can you determine? Can’t you see that it will only work in the systems that have you trapped throughout your lives, that provide well for a few and terribly for the many, and that are propelling us to our own destruction? Can’t you see that such systems require poverty, wars, destruction, waste, crime, and discrimination? Religious conflicts serve such systems. Racism is good for those systems. Crime is great for the systems. I can go on and on.

You can make your money by managing money if you can and if you want to. I will not begrudge you for it. I will applaud you. I am happy for you. Just don’t try to tell me that it is going to create a world of peace and happiness for everyone. It will not be that way in the systems that make it possible for you to make money by managing money. Only a small percentage of us can acquire our money that way without bringing on the apocalypse and we are already dangerously close to that limit.

Our systems must not be allowed to collapse for there is too much destruction that will come from it. I am referring to manmade global disasters that will end Life on Earth. We must carefully change the systems without letting the complex systems that control thing go down in flames. The work has been going on so long, we have set the sword of Damocles over the head of Life itself.

Endless Labor

People work and work and work. They often hate what they have to do and it has been going on for hundreds of years in greater and greater proportions. Many have just resigned themselves to their tasks and work five days a week for forty years or more at tasks such as folding the laundry at a hospital or selling mattress at a retail store. The work has to continue. It is grinding away the surface of the planet and the spirit of the people. There is no end in sight as things are today, but for doom. We have got to change things! The work must be reduced while increasing our comfort, security, abundance, and quality of environment. Would that not be nice?

As it is now, there is no work security. Your job is not going to be safe, not ever. Even tenured professors will be out of work during a depression or a war. What is tenure then? A social status that is dependent upon horrible systems that must die.

Many have lost their jobs after decades of loyal service. Military people are walking the streets homeless and destitute. The systems that govern our lives are heartless. They care nothing for us. How wonderfully this must match up with some of the characteristics of some people! Do you think that there may be heartless criminal types at the top of the pyramids?

In the USA, where jobs are essential, the jobs are moving to other countries and the international corporations are lining themselves and things up for a global pyramid. Meanwhile, we in this country are finding it harder and harder to get work, especially good work for good pay, but the systems don’t care. It is likely seen as a good thing by beneficiaries of the pyramids and their plan for global government with international corporations in control.

Business is considered an excuse for inhuman behavior. “It’s just business. Nothing personal.” Such nonsense has become a commonly accepted axiom. Crime and heartlessness are but two of the innumerable problems inherent in the monetary system and the class systems where the lack of ethical, moral, and loving restraints secure the top positions and facilitate the paltry rises in both. Time has turned them into old dying monsters. There is not enough room here to go into many of the inherent problems with these systems. I would like to write it all out, but a better mission is the one that this work is dedicated to; and that is a plan to change the world quickly. Maybe even save it.

Expansion of the Top

By now we witness the accumulation of power of such astonishing proportions that more people have been allowed to have great wealth. It has gotten so big help is needed in high places. People are being allowed to come up from the bottom. We all know some of the stories. Someone starts a business and gets rich or someone finds a treasure or someone hits a big lottery winnings. It will not happen enough to break the system that they rise up in, but it will happen some. When it does, the people are again baited to think they can do the same. People at the top die, too, making room for others. Despite all we see, the number of people at the top remains within the one percent range. It’s just that one percent of six billion is more than one percent of two billion. Those who come up are the ones those at the top a willing to allow to rise. Sometimes they make mistakes and someone who rises up begins to make trouble for the systems. We are aware of the sudden deaths by “lead poisoning” or some other means of great men who appeared to be able to make good changes in the systems.

Do you ever wonder why hardly any of those we are aware of who have come into vast amounts of money never seem to do anything that causes the established systems and their controllers any trouble? How about the fact that some people get so wealthy they could fund the elimination of poverty but never even seem willing to relieve the poverty of the people they know?

I am stunned by the fact that musicians and actors who become famous and wealthy never seem to write about the pleasure they get by rising from pennilessness to pennifullness; an experience probably overflowing with feelings worthy of songs and prose. It is just skipped over in their autobiographies. You will find in their books no shortage of words about their struggle and poverty. They will have you feeling it right there with them, but when they finally make it and you expect to rejoice with them as they relate the joy of finally getting that first big payday, of being able to get a nice place to live , plenty to eat, and buy whatever they want, they just skip it altogether. Of late, rap and hip-hop writers have written some about it, but nowhere near the heart of the matter. If these things have not entered your mind, think of it now. Where are the best parts of the stories?

It could be that those who get lucky enough to rise toward the top are brought under control by those with greater power. Would you just enjoy your good fortune and make no waves if making waves would get everyone you love killed? For those who have no behavioral restraints, killing the loved ones of those who make trouble for them or don’t cooperate with them is nothing—the same absence of behavioral restraints that make the rise to power in the pyramid easier. Rising up in the systems might be a very disillusioning and frightful revelation. Especially when it then becomes so obvious that there can be only one at the top, or perhaps a few due to the size of the planet and its population. “A few at the top!” Sounds like the seeds of battle to me.

Money Manipulation

When society’s budget is coopted to money, it becomes possible to artificially manipulate the prosperity of society—among other things despicable. The depressions and booms of the past were just such things. The depressions of the early twentieth century were contrived, ruthless, power plays as much or more than the consequences of stupid systems. The work force was still present and ready to work. The infrastructure was still in place and the resources had not vanished. So, why was there a depression? [Spare me the old answers that have been hammered into us. I have already been there. It’s all junk designed to satisfy those who are curious.] It was intentionally created. That is what must become known by the people. If your ancestors died due to the depression, you certainly should know this. The suffering and death it brought about were simply casualties of the financial manipulation against society that was intended to gather more power by those who perpetrated it and, even more so, to preserve a monetary system that provides the desirable lifestyles enjoyed by those at the top; but, we must not overlook the lifestyles of those near the top; the slaves who get to live better than the other slaves but not as well as those at the top.

The depressions did not ruin all the moneyed people. In fact, it simply reduced the prices of everything so that those who were not ruined could buy more; things like companies, stocks, politicians, governments, and so forth. It was a time of the best “sales” in history. Everything was available at new and unheard-of low prices. It was no accident.

The times of social prosperity are likewise artificial manipulations designed to maintain control of the lives of the people and to increase and consolidate power. The real work gets done in prosperous proportions and the people enjoy better lives. Once the prosperity becomes sufficient to placate and pacify the people, to distract them from the more vital aspects of society, and to accumulate more power, the financial screws get turned and the wealth gets sucked away from the people into the hands of the controllers. The up and down flux has nothing to do with the real budget of society.


The savings you accumulated over the past fifty years or so has been stolen. Your pay in the sixties was much lower than the pay for the same work today. Minimum wage was about $1.25 per hour and things cost much less than they do today. You paid into social security from the pay you got back then; whether you wanted to or not. You saved, perhaps, some of your earnings after paying your taxes. You could buy a nice new car for around $2500.00. I know because I was there. Over time you continued to work and to save what you could. Meanwhile inflation is happening. By now a nice new car costs about $20,000 or more and everything else is much more expensive. The money you put away in the form of savings and social security, however, did not experience inflation. Your savings have lost value. The value didn’t vanish into thin air, it went into the hands of someone else. This is theft. You have been robbed by the monetary system.

It is a convoluted and complicated bunch of schemes that rob the people in broad daylight so effectively that the victims of the robbery never even realize they have been robbed. You can learn all about it if you try. I will just say that it has a lot to do with the printing, coining, and distribution of currency; what we know as money. Banking and government are integral parts of the process. I would like to spell it all out so that I could be sure you understand, but, alas, only so much at a time. I hope you will not just take my word for it and do your own research and study. If you do, you will join me. Mark my word on this.

Proof of Abundance

Do you think there is not enough for everyone to have everything they want? If so, have you measured the output and the demand? I mean, have you done it yourself? Maybe you have heard someone who knows someone who knows someone who read something somewhere that said there cannot be enough for everyone. There are, however, things you do know that will convince you that there is too much for everyone and that great effort is being put into making abundance seem impossible.


How much has the human species squandered in wars? I thought so! You know that the waste due to war is beyond measure. But we can’t prevent war, you say! That is just wrong. Not only can we prevent war, war has been perpetrated upon us by others. Wars have been desired by those who have the power to create them and the means to benefit from them. They have their own reasons to want war.

Do some research and learn about the money that went into the hands of the villains who are portrayed to have been the ones who started the world wars. You can easily learn of money going to Hitler. See where the money came from that Stalin used to gain control of Russia. Check the Chinese rise of Mao. The true controller of the world like war. They fund all sides.

War prevents abundance. It creates jobs. It is commonly believed that WWII ended the depression. War keeps the population down, especially the male population. Do you think none so evil could have risen to power in this world, so evil as to make a world war happen? Follow the money, and you will change your mind if that’s what you think. War prevents the people from becoming aware of who is really in control. They depend on war.

What about religious wars? If you trace the money, you will learn some details about the rise of religious organizations that will disillusion you. Conflicting religions are a great tool of the controllers of the world. Religious conflict prevents the people from becoming united. Those at the top of the pyramid, the world controllers, know that when the people unite in common cause the control of the world will be wrested from them. They don’t want that to happen. A lot of money goes into the sides that would fight.

I will resist the temptation to spell out some of the places where money is being applied to the causes of wars and the prevention of the people uniting in a common cause. There are so many! See for yourself. It is not that hard. Again, follow the money. I will say this; it is being applied to religions, politics, ideals, racism, and much more.

The people hate conquerors. Just let some country try to conquer some other country, like Germany did, and the people will go to war. It takes something that horrible to get people to war, but even then it is not easy. There are ways well known by those who need the knowledge for their purposes to get the people to fight wars. We can take the power from them and have peace. The way to take it from them is to stop using money to conduct our work.

Do you think that the prevention of war alone will not make such abundance as to make plenty for everyone? I disagree, but that is not all we can do to make abundance. There are many things that can create abundance by getting rid of money. How about all the effort that goes into the creating, distribution, containing, and management of money?

Money Management

According to the 2012 figures released by the government, about forty percent of the GDP was financial. Do you understand that? It means that almost half of the money was gotten by those who deal with money. Banking pays very well. Stock broking pays pretty well too. There are financial instruments that most people are totally oblivious to; things like derivatives, and much more. You can study to learn about them if you want. You already know that a lot of money goes into the hands of those whose only jobs are directly related to money and that by eliminating money those jobs will be eliminated making the burden of providing for our abundance easier for us all by increasing the help available.

I still want to tell you of other things that will make abundance obvious. Advertising is only needed in a monetary system. We put a lot of money into it. We will need no such systems in a world where money is not used. We will simply make the stuff the people want and operate distribution systems to get them out. The commercialism of retail business will change to functionalism and vast savings will be gained.

[I do realize there will be some need for publicizing and the advertising industry will be very helpful in that. New invention will need to be promoted. Public issues will need to be discriminated to the public. There will be a type of advertising useful in a money-free system.]

Will you please add to the list the end of producing things below our best level of production and the end of producing things so that they wear out, break, or fail before they should? Planned obsolescence is an accepted part of production in our word. We make things of inferior quality because businesses need sales, factories need orders, and so on. Production cannot stop in a monetary system. Unemployment would rise. Too many people hungry and desperate causes revolt.

I have already, in this work, written about the savings that the people can enjoy by the ending of crime and all its associated systems. So, I will simply mention it again here in support of the fact that we can produce far more than everyone would get if they were allowed to get everything they want.

The universe, why, even our solar system, are rich with resources. We are not going after them because we live in a monetary system. We can’t acquire those resources and maintain the many systems we are dependent upon in the current system for jobs and protection of vested interests. Our abundance will shoot off the charts when we are freed of those old impediments and allowed to reach out to our immediate surroundings.

Why is our factory production not done in outer space? We can’t afford it. In a money free system, we will move into space around our planet, moon, and star. We will find energy to be an abundant and easily acquired resource from out there. We can have our planet be a place of distribution, reclamation, residence, art, parks, and socialization while we do most of our work in the empty space where there is no competition for room or with other forms of life.

That is not all I can mention. There are so many ways that a moneyless society would save time and resources that it cannot be logical to list them all. Do some thinking and seeking for yourself. I know you don’t have time, but that is really not a good excuse because you have almost no time at all as things are now and even less by the time you learn how things are going to go if we don’t do something about it. Maybe you can whittle out a little time by forgoing some of the things you do for fun. I think you had better. With your nose to the grindstone and the needs of your family grinding your lives away, you are not seeing the end of your lives looming. You may live your life without seeing catastrophe, but what about your children and grandchildren? Worse yet, you are not seeing how wonderful you could actually have it.

In the USA and many other parts of the world, people are working feverishly. It has been going on for so long we have changed the face of the Earth. People work all their lives, most of us anyway. The work must never stop. If you don’t work, you don’t get money. You know what that means. No food, no nothing. It’s work or perish. The amount of work needed in our current systems is beyond the ability of those systems to create. The controllers are scrambling for ways to deal with the problem. Remember war? War is very effective in dealing with the system’s inability to create jobs; as I have said above.


Has it ever occurred to you that savings is only possible through abundance? People have been so productive that they cannot consume everything they produce. Luckily, money has been able to be a means to store the extra production; rather unluckily in my opinion.

The rich and wealthy are only so because they are able to inherit or accumulate what is not consumed; again, in the form of money. If we had to store our actual products, there would be far less wealth. The unfortunate aspect of the accumulation of unconsumed products is the fact that much does not get consumed because it is being removed from the supply and stored as savings.
As I have said before, you can’t get it if you can’t pay for it. Money is really a way to prevent us from getting stuff. If the products of society were equally everyone’s right, there would be no need for money because there would be no limit to impose. Now, can you see some abundance showing up?

The world’s top ten wealthiest people, hold about 552.4 billion dollars. There are thought to be 1,645 billionaires in the world; that is, they have at least one billion. Most of them are so-called “self-made.” The royalty and dictators of the world are not counted in the numbers. There is a lot of excess production in the world; especially in the USA.

There has been a lot more produced than is obvious and abundance for a long time, but it has been horded preventing the masses from enjoying it. It must be understood that in our systems there is only so much to go around and if someone or someones get a lot of it for themselves there is less for the rest. Is that said well enough for you to understand? I’ll tell you, I have had a rough time getting it through people’s heads. Such inherent problems will not exist in the money-free systems.
In this money-world, it made sense to get rich and then get even richer all the while doing one’s best to hold on to the riches. To provide for the self and family, it is a little easier to ignore the deprivation of the masses. When one’s circumstances are in constant jeopardy, the money-world demands accumulation and protection. A lot of people have done this and it has been done for a very long time. We can remove the incentive for this behavior. Money.

We are going to start a new system that preserves the access to the products of society for all and in greater quantities than the wealthy can obtain with all their wealth.

Realize that systems become obsolete and discarding them can be treacherous and trying. I am aware that the new systems are not exempt. This is not a panacea. It is only a step in the right direction.
People have become more and more convinced that there must be some calamity. They will tell you, if you ask, that something horrible will happen before things can get any better. They seldom will say that something wonderful must happen. (I have written about it already.) Pessimism is everywhere. But the fact remains that something wonderful can happen to make things better. That something can be the elimination of money from society.

Trapped by Society

Trapped by Society

What do you do in your life? Do you get born, grow up, discover how things are, and then fall in line? You were born into a complicated human arrangement of power, structure, and construction. How easy it is to play along! The tremendous pressures you are subjected to by living in the natural habitat of Earth are increased by the pressures of social structures and powers until the human species is evolving toward ignorance, ineptness, and servitude.

All your life you have experienced the effects of human society right down to the way your parents raised you. Experience has done things to you. This fact has not escaped the people who derive fantastic benefits from society. The lives of the privileged are something that they intend to preserve and augment. To do this they must make sure you never become a problem to them and they have developed ingenious techniques to insure that you do not. The events of human history are well known to them while the general public remains ignorant. They have learned lessons that help them maintain the systems. Then, knowledge of the past is tailored to further insure that the people never come to realize the power of numbers. The greatest threat to the society of human kind is the uniting of the people.

The privileged few do not think highly of the masses. There are exceptions to just about everything, but exceptions are like a lone voice in the wilderness. Predominant disdain for the people is ever present and can be discovered in the artifacts that have survived time. Pharaohs, kings, and emperors have considered themselves gods granted the human species, all life forms, and the Earth for their use and pleasure. They have seen themselves as far above the general people, and have treated the people with less regard than they gave the soles of their shoes. This is not just an aberration of the past. It is the reason you have to struggle to survive in a world of plenty. It is the reason for the wars, the social conflicts, the pain, and the suffering.

When the Pharaohs conscripted slaves, institutions were created to manage them. When slavery was legal in the US, techniques were devised to control them. We are the heirs of such institutions and techniques. By now they have evolved into invisible hands manipulating the strings of puppet that call themselves the “people.” It is you!

Like it or not, believe it or not, the reality of your life is in the hands of the puppet masters. You were born into it and escape is unlikely but possible. You did not build the cities. You did not create the government. You have done very little in a world exploding with the products of those who came before you. The entire planet is blanketed with things and systems that you are subjected to as surely as a slave is subjected to the will of the master. It took a long time to create this situation. Since the first leader commandeered the assistance of his peers, the human race has experienced the effects of Pharaohs, kings, queens, tyrants, and leaders. It is the stuff of legend. It is the past and the present.
As we plunge ahead into the future, we might want to look into the past and see how our world got like it is. In so doing, something wonderful for everyone might come to light.

In our quest to discover our past we have found that humans have had to struggle for the things they needed to survive as far back as we can detect. It was hard and dangerous work. There was seldom plenty. Only the strong and capable could manage to live and the conditions imposed by nature were compounded by the conditions humans imposed upon each other. Complex social arrangements evolved as if by accident, for vast vision is still severely undeveloped and evidence of social design suggests a relatively recent development. Slowly the concepts of specialization and organization gave rise to social structures and mechanical means that have changed the requirements of survival. One must take a position in some specialized position operating one of the multitude of society’s cogs to survive now. Exception are rare.

Behind us in time is history studded with conquest, wars, atrocities, and horrors more frightening than the fiction of the most talented imaginations. Power shifted constantly, but it was always regional. Global dominance, though dreamed of and aspired for, has remained unattained, though it is becoming more likely every day. As you must surely know, the shifts of power were most often, if not entirely, a result of conquest. If not conquest, then some other form of violence. On more local levels, power came into the hands of those who were not restrained by moral or ethical virtues. Many families that have power today acquired it initially by illegal means and have managed to expand into legitimate areas of society. The sad reality of this is that power has been taken by the sort of person that virtue would disdain.

Throughout all the wars and unscrupulous power plays the substance of societies developed. All too often the structure of society was adjusted to meet the needs of those who had power and the general population was kept in subservience. When someone rose in notoriety who had the general welfare at heart, the mighty hammer of the power players pounded them into oblivion so as to protect and perpetuate the systems that afforded them their power. The influence of great humanitarians and visionaries could not be eradicated every time and society inched ahead despite effort to thwart it. We arrived at today with many systems in place the people have little or no awareness of that are preventing the attainment of a virtual utopia that has become more attainable now than ever before.
Institutions and social structures have been created that developed their own means of survival; like some robot that has escaped the control of its builder and found the means to defend and sustain its existence. There are so many such things that it is doesn’t make sense to attempt a literary presentation of them all; especially in this article. They are holding us back. I find it very difficult to conceive the reality of systems that have become living non-entities, but it must be brought to light and examined. They exist only by our effort, yet their acquisition of that effort is mostly unseen even though we go to great extremes of labor, danger, and seeming devotion to give them life. If these things can be brought to light, something wonderful can be gained.

The Pyramid System

One of the social structures that has lingered is the often repeated “pyramid” type of social structure; one or few at the top with the rest of humanity below in service to the top. Aspiring world conquerors have littered the pages of our history as far back as we can see, and they all were destroying and killing so that they could have the top position in a pyramid style distribution of wealth, power, and prestige. If you think such humans are no more, you are wrong. This pyramid has been around a long, long time. Naturally, it tends to take over the world.

With our high-tech communications, conveyances, armaments, and militaries, a global pyramid is not a farfetched notion; it’s a looming threat. Do you want to be a part of the global pyramid? Maybe you would rather have a more equitable system, an egalitarian one. Why should there be a pyramid at all? Do you think that some deserve more than you deserve? Maybe you think you are more deserving than others.

We were all born into the systems that dominate the people. They have us from birth to death. Within them, we occupy a place in the pyramid and have little or no opportunity to move to the top. There have been rare exceptions that are publicized and glorified to make it appear as if anyone could lift themselves from the bottom to the top. I think they know better and are simply trying to keep the system in place so they can protect the abundance and freedom they enjoy by keeping the people so enticed and hopeful of rising up in the pyramid that they do not rise up in revolt. If you think you are free or that you live in a free country, you are terribly deluded.

In the USA, the powerful social system known as the Federal Government was established by men who believed in freedom, and was put into place by consent of the people. Since those people passed away, the consent of the people has never been sought again. Everyone living here have been subjects of the government whether they like it or not.

When a large number of states (11 of 34) tried to escape subjugation to the government in the mid-1800s, a terrible war was fought and the attempted escape was prevented. In the ploy to mitigate the reactions of the people to the truth that war was said to have been fought to “preserve the union.” Sounds a little better than “preventing the escape of 11 states.”

If you are an American, you were born into servitude without even the opportunity to consent and escape is resisted with violence. Even an individual can leave the USA only with permission, and still does not escape the systems. You can measure your loss of freedom by the amount of your earnings you are compelled to give up to the government, if you want. That would be very helpful in keeping you pacified in you bondage. Or, you can measure your freedom by determining how much of your life is bound by old social systems that you take for granted.

Even the powerful and wealthy are stuck in the systems. The social systems have you and your family. The power to affect those systems is limited, but it is not entirely absent. Those at the top in the pyramid of wealth have some power to affect the systems, but even there change is not easy. We are in the pyramid, and pyramids are strong. Most of us know that only a very small percentage of us are ever going to even improve our standing within the pyramid. The top is already occupied.
There is no room at the top for everyone, nor even a large percentage of everyone. At the top people have vast amounts of funds. If too many people acquired vast amounts of funds and reached the top, the economic systems would collapse in hyper-inflation. The top of the pyramid cannot handle many. There is no possibility for everyone to be wealthy, and there must be many poor. It is an inherent flaw in the system, and there are many such flaws. Some see it as an inherent blessings.

Those at the top look down at the rest of us with haughty disdain. They really do think they deserve more than everyone else and we deserve none to little. It is not even hidden. The “divine right of kings” is an old attitude. The attitude of the wealthy is similar and has changed little over the course of history, and rather than oppose the attitude, the people seem to accept it and cling to a fragment of hope of becoming one of them, complete with the disdain and feelings of entitlement.

Interviews with some of the people who have lots of money have revealed the completely guiltless feelings of belonging to a special group that treats the rest of the people as if they are not even there. They live lives completely separate from the other 99% of the people in many ways even though their lives depend on the work of the people. The acquisition of lots of money has not brought enough happiness with it, for happiness is not found without, and the suicides and tragedies of loneliness testify to this succinctly.

There has been quite a bit of publicity lately about some who have suddenly gained vast fortunes expressing their disdain for the general public. We have heard the words “mindless feeders,” and other more vulgar words used by some of the wealthy to refer to the general public. This type of attitude often comes from those who were able to get a lot of money, as if doing so made them better than the masses. By now, we can find many at the bottom who agree. That is how effective the systems we inherited are.

There are a lot of people who live very well. They can have almost anything they want, do anything they want, and go nearly anywhere they want to go any time they want to go staying as long as they want; it is “freedom” of a type. They like it. I think they realize that the only means whereby they are so able is through the social structure of our society; the pyramid and many others.

It stands to reason that the people at the top of the pyramid would be resistant to change. After all, they have a lot to lose. The people in the lower parts of the pyramid, inversely, have less to lose. We could use a system that improves the lives of everyone, including those at the top. I wonder if they realize what they are missing.

The Monetary System

We live in a “monetary” system. There are places you can learn more about such things, but it is sufficient to say that a monetary system is a “money system.” It usually has a central bank, as we in the USA do. The founders of this nation disagreed amongst themselves about the institution of a central bank, especially one with control of issuing currency, and despite efforts to prevent it, the central bank keeps coming back into our lives. Great power comes to the central bank via the monetary system.

I was not granted the opportunity to consent to having a monetary system. No one alive was. It’s like being born into a kingdom. And as if that injustice is not enough, I have found that few have even a rudimentary understanding of the monetary system even though they spend their lives in pursuit of money and in many ways their lives are dominated by it. It was not taught in the first twelve years of my education. (I have removed from this draft an explanation of some of the fundamental aspects of money. You can get such information easily enough. I have written about it already.)

Money is king. Money if “freedom.” Despite its relevance, its vital importance to their lives, and even the status of the planet, the people don’t know much about it. Those at the top are grateful for such ignorance. Be aware that they do not share it with them, the ignorance nor the benefits. It is my opinion that the ignorance of the people regarding the monetary system and many of the life’s other systems is a carefully cultivated condition.

The monetary system has many complicated aspects. Banking is just one of them. Inflation is another. You can take it from me, if everyone were able to get pay raises to a million dollars a week for their work, they would be getting no more than they are getting today. If, by some miracle, the entire society didn’t break down, the monetary system would automatically adjust by means of inflation to keep you in the same place you were before you got the raise. Pretty clever! Wouldn’t you say?

Prices are determined by “what the market will bear.” In other words, as-much-as-possible is the price of an item. That means that if everyone had millions of dollars to spend prices would adjust so that your raise would be meaningless, other than the fact that you would need help hauling the money around, and that job has actually been created. The pay for it is at the top of the scale; you may know some of it as “banking.” Perhaps you have noticed the well-built fancy little bank branches that keep being built on virtually every expensive corner. They are just branches of a gigantic tree with roots deeply embedded in the soil of our lives.

The Class System

We are the heirs of many systems; or the “prisoners,” is a better term. The “class” system is one that works quite well with the monetary system. The system is closed and even the acquisition of great wealth will not get you into the “exclusive club.”

You can encounter plenty of denial, but it cannot be successfully refuted that the class system grades people. Some are better than others in a class system. Therefore, some think they deserve to live better than others and the monetary system serves that concept quite well. You can be sure, however, that there is no way for the monetary system and the class system to provide lifestyles similar to that of the people at the top for everyone. Indeed, like the monetary system, there is little or no likelihood of improving ones position. In the class system, the top is already occupied.

Now, consider the fact that the monetary and the class systems are social constructs. They were created by man; perhaps predominately by that gender. They are not like the solar system, the endocrine system, or any other natural system. They only exist because we make them. Well, we don’t have to make them. We shouldn’t make them any longer. Change is required.

The Power of the People

The people have the true power in the world. They always have. There is nothing without the people. Kings would have no kingdom, Pharaohs would have no workers without the people who have not been fortunate enough to be Pharaohs themselves. Both are titles of a mere person; a person just like all of us, despite their opinion to the contrary. Only the people provide. Only the people have true power. They rise up now and then, but they seem to prefer not to. Of course, those at the top never stop working against such an uprising. The people so outnumber those at the top that there would be little chance of the people failing in an earnest attempt. What would the people do? Well, that has been the problem. They don’t know what to do.


They have relied on those at the top to lead them and to take care of them so long it has become generally accepted as one of the “laws of life,” and apply little effort to the examination and evaluation of the arrangement. Only the most dire conditions have compelled the people to use their power to change the system. They want to spend their time dealing with their own affairs and to just trust the leaders. Do you think the leaders are trustworthy?

Some people are born with the ability to work with their hands, some the ability to run very fast, some with a fabulous sense of music, some with the ability to perform great mental feats, and the variety is incredible. Now and then through history some have been born who have many abilities and they have often been leaders of others. Though there have been great leaders who have done good things as leaders, there appear to have been far more who have led the people into horrors such as piracy, looting and pillaging, slavery, wars of conquest, and even eradication of other peoples.
Buckminster Fuller wrote about some such men and referred to them as “great pirates.” The term fit since they were usually leading the people out to sea to attack other ships, but they did not limit themselves to ships. Towns were often subjected to their attention. They robbed and destroyed without remorse. They killed people with pleasure in unfathomable numbers. It was heartlessness unbound, and it went on over the millennia. It still goes on! One of the effects of the bloody history is the acceptance as a natural law the social arrangement of leadership. Leaders have made followers rich. They have not made the followers as rich as they have made themselves, though.

This type of exploit was played out by many such leaders and followers. Battles were conducted between them and power shifted around constantly. Nations evolved from this history of leaders and followers consolidating holdings and winning new territories. It certainly shaped the face of the world we know until the leadership role has become one that does not require persons of many qualities. The people at the top have become the type that cannot survive without the provisions of the rest of the people. They cannot perform the tasks required to produce the things they have. Without the systems that provide for them, they would perish. Intellect is not enough. They have the intellect, for sure, though it seems to me to be trending toward insanity. No other explanation fits all the horrors. Nation against nation forever! Wars over and over. This is the legacy we have received. There is more to it though, thankfully.


While the fighting was going on, others were working to make peace, to improve the character of the people, and to establish morals, ethics, and virtues; to bring heart to the world. Religions came to be. Great prophets came forth with teachings and messages that helped alleviate the violence and improve the general character of the people. It is my belief that each was needed and occurred as it should have when and where it should have.

Beauty and horror mixed and created great currents that have yet to settle, and from these currents came the social structures to which we are currently subjected and which we accept as though there is no other way. It’s as if it all came about by accident, as if no one actually thought about it and decided to create what we have, and we don’t have it. It has us.

Social System Influence

We can change the systems that control us. We must! It is going to happen one way or another. We can let things unfold while we “mind our own business” and hope for the best. We can allow those who have a will to change things to do so and hope they have our best interests at heart and in mind. We can rely on the deity and try to ignore the fact that we have been waiting for that for many thousands of years. Or! We can put ourselves into it and develop a vision of how we want to make things for ourselves and then make it that way.

It will be necessary to evaluate ourselves. We must find the areas of ourselves that are not the products of our conscious creation, at least our conscious approval. The centuries of established systems have shaped the very nature of our beings; even our genetics.

The pyramid, monetary, and class systems virtually dictate the quality of our lives and the substance of our beings. We have some control, to be sure, but only within those systems and the others that are not part of this discussion—not yet anyway. The systems have been in place so long they have affected the very foundations of reason in the minds of the people and caused us to feel what we feel; those of us who do feel, that is. It is not safe nor wise to trust your own judgment these days, and what you feel is treated like a phantom that disturbs your thoughts.

We all know that the greatest human power is the power of a united people. As old Ben Franklin said, “We must indeed all hang together, or most assuredly we will all hang separately.” Find that cause that we can join as a people. Put aside the difference long enough to prevent the end of the world and to create a utopic society.



It can be frustrating sometimes to discover that the things one has gleaned for oneself were already gleaned by others long ago, but only temporarily, for vindication and verification are more satisfying. See this from Sir Thomas More:

The economy of the Utopians is of particular interest. Their markets are nothing more than supply houses where everyone is free to go and take what he needs without payment. They are able to produce an abundance of food, so that they can export their surplus to foreign countries, which they exchange for gold and silver for the state treasury. There is no private property among the Utopians and they have no money. The wealth which they acquire by foreign trade is used only in time of war. The citizens are educated to despise jewels and precious metals and find their use by foreigners for ostentatious decoration to be ridiculous.

I am not the only one who can see a money-free society as a possibility. You can see my proposal in the article I wrote titled How To Change The World Overnight

How To Change The World Overnight

How To Change The World Overnight

Change is one of the few things that is inevitable and constant, but it is still meets with heavy resistance and denial. The right incentive should counter these tendencies. People will do just about anything for the right incentive. Unfortunately, they are more likely to do nothing without it. Even dire conditions have proven to be amotivational, especially when those conditions have occurred gradually. Even the approach of the “end of the world” is not cause enough for action. Things are changing whether we like it or not. We can just let it happen or we can use our power to direct the changes. We can even change intentionally. If we decide to, we can do some wondrous things.

There is something we can do right away that will sweep the glob fixing problems such as corruption, crime, and poverty facilitating the resolution of the more exotic problems like bigotry, social oppression, and war. It’s true! One vital change that will heal almost all our ills is now possible. Once that is done, the way to Life’s fulfillment will be rather easy. Let me unfold the plan as clearly, fully, and carefully as I can. Timing and presentation are vital.

I want you (everybody) to think about this idea and give it a fair consideration. I know how people are and fully expect such a consideration to be a rare phenomenon. Still, I think it will catch fire eventually because of the reward that can be had and just as fully expect those who are distinguishably intelligent and wise to see the merits of the idea and join me in taking it “viral,” or making it a meme.

Maybe you will think it can’t work or that it would be great but it just isn’t going to happen. I know how you are. But! Do you have a better idea? I wish someone would. If nothing else, this idea will get people thinking about a better way. Do you see what would prevent this plan form working or happening? If so, share those thoughts with me and help me find a way to do something about it. Talk about it with your friends and family. Don’t be too quick to dismiss. You just love to make snap decisions against things and turn away offering nothing better. It is easier to shoot something down than to build something and launch it.

It’s a simple plan, but it’s a very big and complicated process that will shake the foundations of civilization when put into play. It is a plan to accomplish the satisfaction of all your earthly needs, desires, and dreams. All of you! Then it goes way beyond those things to do virtually miraculous things. Does the prospect of getting everything you will ever want all of your life sound like a good enough incentive? I am not kidding!

Our species is about to become so enthralled with the excitement of finally achieving our survival, safety, security, plenty, and the so-longed-for lifting of the burden of endless toil that coping with pleasure and joy will become a real concern. Biological and psychological altruism will win the day. The fetters that have held the human spirit in check will be severed releasing upon our world angelic beings of vast capability, curiosity, adventure, and virtue. It is us. Us as we have always been trying to be during our long tough journey.

As we reaffirm our desire to live with each new breath, we steadily approach the sudden explosion of advancement that will be ignited when this plan is activated. It will ignite the beauty that awaits the spark. It will bring on changes that are needed more urgently every day and none will be able to remain unaffected. The effects will be the stuff of songs and dreams as old as the human species, probably older. Fantastic benefits will pour forth like answered prayers. Our oldest desires will be attainable at last and the journey will finally begin in earnest.

A burgeoning new world is straining at its confinement to burst forth. The gestation period we call “history” is over. The birthing is at hand. We are coming into the beginning. The time for denial is at its end and we can now dispense with the pain and suffering we have endured for ages in our effort to try every other possibility.

Everything that has ever happened has brought us to this time and made our wonderful future possible. It is nothing more than the direct result of Life having time to experience living on Earth. The metamorphosis is at hand. We will join hands and step up to greet the morning of our tomorrow. The Light is dawning.

A miraculously wonderful achievement of every person’s desire for fulfillment, regardless of who they are or what they want and expect, is the solution and the method is so fantastic it satisfies all. I am not exaggerating! That is what we have to look forward to. I struggle to contain my excitement.

This Universe is vast and beautiful. It is a complex frontier that excites our longing for discovery with infinite possibilities. Our understanding and awareness are unborn infants. We have been carrying these babies for a long time, but time is such a relative thing. All that is left is a surge into the light. In the satisfaction of a deep old drive and an effort to midwife the birth, I offer here an inducement that I lucked upon. If you please, read on and see for yourself if I am just full of bunk or if I have finally stumbled onto something wonderful.

The words you are reading are the gifts of Love and my gift to you as expression of the deep unconditional love I have for you. I see how beautiful you really are. I feel the magic you bring. I understand why you do what you do and realize you always have done the only thing you really could do. I long to commune with you and frolic with you in the heavenly bliss that is our destiny.

The Plan

It may be the only thing we haven’t tried yet: No money. Remove money from the system. That is basically all we have to do. In phases, money can be entirely eliminated from the human condition, but we can select a day, after considerable preparation, to stop charging for products and services, and to stop getting paid for our work. The world will be changed overnight.It will be like suddenly getting rich, but even better.

The endless labor and stress you have been enduring in order to pay the bills every month will come to an end once-and-for-all. They will just disappear. You are going to have time to play and be with your loved ones, who will inherit the most wonderful society humans have created. You will be able to go to the stores, shops, dealers, and any other supplier and get what you want by simply proving your identity. Theaters and stadiums will not require money for entrance, though there will have to be some system such as “first-come-first-serve” employed since there is limited capacity. You can go to any restaurant to dine by merely proving your identity. Need a new car, truck, or parts. Go get them just as you would today, but bring your identification instead of money or credit. As a member of society who contributes time to the countless needs of human effort, you will have virtually unlimited access to the products of that society.

There will have to be some limits, of course. We couldn’t provide everyone with their own space shuttle, nor can we be unreasonable in acquiring the more simple things. It does not make sense, for example, to have a million bars of soap. It will be a new world and new systems will be created to deal with the multitude of situations that billions of unique individuals confined to a single planet in a subjective relative reality presents. When money is removed from the equations, solutions will be easier to formulate. Trust will flourish and the desire to work together for the mutual benefit will relegate today’s seemingly unsolvable problems to the “solved file.” Dealing with the mountains of decisions necessary in society will be nothing like it is now. It will just be a task, a job for someone to do to secure unlimited, life-long access to the products of society.

The management systems and government systems we now have will be adjusted to serve this new paradigm. Our experience with both has rendered information and wisdom beyond value that will readily meld with the operations of the new world. It is astonishing how much more beautifully the systems that regulate human interaction perform when the primary intent of people operating them is free of the competition for advantage, prestige, wealth, and power. When management and government are the work of gifted caring people doing their best to satisfy the needs of a society that is composed of individuals who are working for the rewards to be had in a “team work” society, they become beautiful contributions to humanity. They are indispensable assets.

Before you get crazy, realize that you will not have to give up your possessions; rich, middle, poor, royal or anyone. This is not a socialist redistribution of wealth. It is not a communistic government takeover, though it will resemble the family style of community from which Communism got its name. This is not a return to the barter system or an alternative form of currency. It is simply the elimination of money. We just keep doing the good things we are already doing and carefully begin adjusting our systems to operate in a new way. In time everything will change, even us.

There will be a lot of adjustment required and the complexity of it is fantastic. But you will still have everything you have now, even the currency if you want. Your personal life-style may or may not change for a while. It depends on many factors, but those of us who have little will surely suddenly have plenty. As I understand it, that means about 99% of us. Life on Earth will certainly change, beyond recognition eventually, and all for the better.

By simply eliminating money, a virtually endless list of benefits can be had. One of the greatest benefits to be enjoyed is the release from the struggle for survival, prosperity, and security. When that single achievement is reached, living will sculpt a new type of human, a human fulfilled and productive while contributing to the expansion of the limits of human consciousness, virtue, endeavor, and reach. We will be able at last to trust one another, even to be able to rely on others. The ruthless merciless competition for survival will give way to the cooperative, caring collaboration for survival and the team work for the acquisition of dreams.

The benefits of eliminating money seems limitless. It will virtually end crime. It will destroy a lot of the motives people find for war. It will purify governments, business, and religion. It will open the door to innovation and invention. It will streamline the operations of mankind. It will reduce our demands on the environment. It will make it possible to restore the planet to its natural purity. It will open more of the universe to us. It will release the use of automation to relieve humans of toil. It will relieve much of the stress within the family and between the members of society. The list goes on and on.

Poverty will finally be eliminated by eliminating money. This age old nemesis of the monetary system will go away once and for all. Hunger and need will be no longer. As the new paradigm takes root, most of the complex factors of regional conflicts that have created so much terror, so many refugees, and so much destitution will unravel by the removal of causes. Conflict caused by the disparity of religious, social, and political views will be easier to negotiate for peace. Multi-factional conflicts will settle by the appeasement of grievances, the removal of the incentive to fight for money, and the elimination of the need to jockey for position in the stupid hierarchy systems that control life on Earth. The destitute of the world will be succored and assimilated into the world family. I know how happy that will make all you generous and beautiful people who have been helping people around the world. The intentional change to a money-free society will free up the abundance that has been unable to get to the poor due to the profit motive, the arrogance that sees the poor as inferior, and the violence of repressive self-serving groups. All this is at least a good start toward achieving the resolution of the horrible situations that have captured so many. In a money-free society there can be no poor unless all are poor, which we can never be in a universe of such vast abundance unless we do it to ourselves. We don’t want that. Bye-bye poverty.

Can you imagine unlimited medical care for all? I can. It will be a rudimentary part of the money-free system. The repair of damage to the human body and the curing of our many ailments will be unfettered and medicine will become what it should be; a calling to the humanitarian healers of the world.

I want to assure you that the advances in health we have in store are too miraculous for you to hear about right now. You would laugh at me if I attempted to tell you of them. I have already tried, but time and experience have only confirmed my findings. I have put a seed in your mind. That is enough for now. Let it grow.

The education systems of the world will become unrecognizable by today’s standards. It will be available to all who desire it and the techniques for teaching will undergo changes that will leave us thinking our current education systems were in great need of education. Knowledge is the friend of societies that have the wellbeing of all at heart. The thirst for knowledge will never be slaked, but the opportunity to drink all you want will be readily available. I think the liberal/conservative conflict will vanish when education becomes what its potential promises and when it is no longer necessary to fight to survive.

The class system, the pyramid system, racial division, ethnic division, religious division, and bigotry will evanesce in the money-free world. Getting rid of money will heal it all. I think I don’t need to guide you through the thought processes that prove this statement. It seems obvious to me. Hopefully it won’t take much longer for society to heal those destructive social ills. When living conditions change, behavior changes too. Charles Darwin noticed this in animal behavior. I noticed it when my ex-wife and I were caring for rescued birds. Release from the struggle for survival causes behavioral changes. Wonderful personalities begin to bloom. The peace and security that we will have when we know with certainty in our hearts that everyone is working for the wellbeing of everyone else will put an end to the menacing behavior and systems that plague us in this “dog-eat-dog” world we have created.

The equality of people will express itself in the compensation for time… at last. Disparity of compensation refutes the virtuous axiom that “all men are created equal.” No longer will the unfair, judgmental, bigoted hierarchy repress anyone or exalt the unworthy. The opportunity to distinguish oneself will be available through true humanitarian deeds and true extraordinary ability. We will witness the end of exaltation from being the most ruthless, cut-throat, cold, greedy, person in the business. All this by ending money. People will be freed of the tyrannical monsters that have usurped the power of the people.

I can imagine many things going away and many things changing by eliminating money, and it is likely you are deeply involved with them. You may even be dependent upon them. Unfortunately, there are many who depend on jobs in systems that are the spawn of horror. Consider the executioner who only has that job because people commit acts of heinous barbarity. So, I ask you, would you be happy to go into a different type of work if the elimination of poverty made your job obsolete? What if the new job paid a million dollars a week?

Eliminating money will change the job supply deeply and permanently. Many types of work will become obsolete and many new types of jobs will emerge. You will be able to choose another job if the work you currently do becomes obsolete and it will “pay” you all you want.

Do you work in a factory that makes bombs? Maybe your job is taking people’s houses and land away from them when they can’t pay the mortgage or the taxes. You might work in the astonishingly vast prison system. Many of you have jobs that are nothing more than those created by the use of money. These jobs and a great many others will eventually become obsolete. Surely, you will not object to changing jobs when crime, poverty, and war are eliminated if it means you will get a lot more for a lot less of your time and effort in your new job. None will be left without a job.

The human species has more than adequate grounds to unite in common cause. There is an abundance. We are all bi-pedal humanoids with virtually the same needs. We are all together in this time in this place. The divisions we have created amongst ourselves are the stuff of opinions regarding things beyond the reality of living on Earth in the now. There is no valid reason to remain divided in our satisfaction of the requirements of living. We all inhale and exhale to live and with each breath we reaffirm our desire to satisfy the requirements of living. We can unite to develop and implement techniques that will avail us of satisfaction with the greatest efficiency and efficacy possible to relieve us of the endless toil that is grinding us and our habitat to dust. We are the heirs of the accumulated legacy created by our ancestors. They got us to this time and these circumstances in which we can finally achieve the security of survival, safety, and prosperity. The elimination of money is a simple and opportune target around which the people around the world can rally putting aside our differences for the moment in anticipation of the fantastic rewards to be gained. The entire face of Earth will morph like the caterpillar that becomes a butterfly. Beauty will prevail. Peace will become the norm. People will become fulfilled and the disparity of opinions will mellow. The end of the conflict is the beginning of peace. The children are counting on us. Let’s stop the quarreling and fighting while we change the world overnight and see what happens. This is our chance.

(Stay tuned for more to come.)
