The Government Is Hated


The vote is theatrics and we do not really select people for office. The news is a propaganda machine working on behalf of the powerful privileged few, or the PPF. Our nation is a hated monster that is out of control and all it does it is doing in our good name. Our government is hated, but we are supposed to be the government.

When or federal government was being designed by the Founding Fathers, controversy was deep and wide. The Articles of Confederation that were replaced with the Constitution were formulated by a disparate group of men who contested their different ideas and ideology for many years all the way through the Continental Congress that produced the ratified final version. The ideals we cherish as Americans never materialized.

In the two centuries since it establishment, our federal government has become a monster ruling over a pack of minor monsters. The ruling monster has been conducting crimes against humanity and the planet since it came into existence. The USA is a hated monster around the world and the hate is justified. We have been duped. The people have been lied to and deceived and propagandized so long there is little left of informed electorate.

I have written an article and posted it here. If you are too afraid of the truth read it. If you are attached to your beliefs and opinions so hard, don’t read it. It is likely to disillusion you. I don’t want you to go nuts.

Changed Election Results

You thought the election results were in and the voice of the people heard. HaHaHa. You were wrong again. Me too.

The recent mid-term election results are being changed. It is not surprising that a lot of Democrat votes are turning up all over the place and changing the results. And you thought it was all over! Me too.

It turns out that elections that were close have been under attack. The results we thought were final are changing and the Democrats are amazingly turning out to have actually been the winners in many cases. I haven’t see even one be changed to a Republican winner. Imagine that!

According to CNN, the most deceitful name in news, the Democrats have amazingly picked up 31 seats in the house with 9 seats still being contested. The Senate is still up for grabs, too. Democrats are likely to gain more seats there. The Governors elections have also shifted in favor of the Democrats with them gaining 7 more seats.

The Russian election meddlers must really envy the skill of the Democrats. The videos of unguarded trucks manned by unauthorized handlers showing up with loads of new ballots are almost impossible to find on the internet, and it is even more impossible to find official outrage over it.

Ballots are supposed to be guarded by the laws and protocols the have been put in place to prevent cheating. Try to find out what those laws are and you will find the internet search engines are very ineffective. Guess what the political affiliations are of the search engine owners.

I do not believe in our elections. I never have and nothing has ever happened to change my mind. No! Not even Trump’s victory. For one, I don’t take it as a fact that he was a rogue who managed to slip in under the control of the directors of this world. For another, an occasional slip does not validate the election system. I think the only way to have any confidence in our system is to be uninformed, deceived, and blind. Blind faith makes things look right.

Censoring, candidate choices, manipulation by the media, costs, and result processing are but a few of the things that have always made what appear to be elections illusions. We vote. Well, less than half of us do. But some of us vote and we think we have done our part to be the guardians of liberty and policy. What a joke! The people are so easily conned in this country they think Oswald acted alone to kill Kennedy.

Trust is a virtue. It is not the fault of the people that they trust. It is the fault of the untrustworthy that the people’s trust is naive. Suspicion is also a virtue. I think we should suspect everything, including our most deep and trusted beliefs.

The election should be the focus of the American public right now. Not because one side or the other might be cheating, but because this nation is teetering on the balance between peace and war, between life and death. Unfortunately, the cheaters know how to keep the public under control. Liberty is a bigger illusion than the elections.

The Siege of the USA

The free people of the USA are under attack. They don’t even realize it, most of them. When little George told the world during a press conference right after 9-11 that the attack was done because the attackers hate “your liberty,” he was finally telling the truth to some extent. It is not the terrorist who hate your liberty. It is him and his compatriots. It is the powerful privileged few (PPF) who hate your liberty. Read more about it by clicking here.

The dominant media has become their favorite and most powerful weapon. It is a small task in this new world of high-tech communications and saturation. By now almost everyone has a cell phone and internet access. Most of them also access satellite and other forms of multi-channel television. Every time any of the many forms of media are accessed, exposure to advanced and high-impact brainwashing gets a little bit more control of the people. The corporate media is the enemy of liberty, the enemy of the people. It is attacking your children and destroying the life-staining capacity of Earth.

You can see for yourself that there are millions of good people in this nation who appear to have completely lost touch with reality. Ethics and morality have been compromised. Reason has become a rare process. The values refined over the centuries that have guided the people in what little peace and prosperity we have been able to acquire are under attack.

They want you to abandon all reason in favor of what they condition you to think. They want you to think it is wrong to identify the gender of living things including and most importantly that of humans. Thought all of nature is gender designed, they want the people to be gender neutral.

They want you to ignore history and even join an attack against it. They must make sure the coming generations have no access to the true history of the world. You will be taught something else to put in its place.

They want you to be completely and utterly under their control. You are not to have any liberty. You are not to have loyalty to your nation, especially one that was founded on principles of liberty, equality, and protection of the property and human rights. The only right will be the right of the PPF to run your life.

Guess what. They enjoy so much wealth and leisure you might have trouble comprehending it. They like what they have and what they enjoy and they see the billions of people as a threat to all they enjoy. It is a fact that you are a threat to it. It is not because you actively want to threaten it. It is not due to any fault of your own. They have caused the problem. It is the methods they have used for some centuries to secure their power and wealth that has created it.

You are the labor and the market. They needed you to build their stuff. They had to have you to provide the services and do the work they didn’t want to do. Hauling garbage, cleaning sewers, working in factories, mowing lawns, fighting in wars, and everything else that make it possible for them to live the powerful and privileged lives they enjoy are things they would not ever do. You could not hire a rich man to do those things for any amount of money. The fact that you are willing to do it for so little amuses them and enhances their disdain for you.

The time is rapidly approaching when they will not need you. Robotics and artificial intelligence is already displacing you. The homeless, the poor, the middle class, and the prisoners proves it. The toxic saturation of the planet proves it. Did you think it is accidental, that they just didn’t foresee it? Don’t make me laugh. You are being deprecated like so much code that has been replaced by better code.

In preparation for the transfer of the labor to the robotics and the uselessness of the market to provide the profits, the PPF are attacking the people of the world. It is a multi-level attack with a multi-staged schedule covering decades. It is the slow increase of pressure and heat. You are not even supposed to realize that you are being boiled alive.

The subconscious of the human mind is the focus of evil manipulation. It is working. People are drowning in the deep end of the crazy-pool. The crazy stuff is being touted as the right stuff. It is being pushed upon the children in school and in all the fun things they access in the giant media conglomerate controlled by some very wicked people. Hypocritical logic has been so deeply cultivated it has become a contender for dominance in the rationality of the people.

If you value family, if you think practicing what you preach is important, if you love your children, if you think liberty is important you had better get busy. All those things and many other hard earned values are being attacked. If you think the American Experiment of government of, by, and for the people is right, you had better get busy. You had better find time to devote to defending your children, your values, your self. I know you need to have some fun and that dealing with all this hell is not fun. But what good is a moment of fun when the rest of your life will be short and spent in abject misery?

Remember that the best tactic in war is the surprise attack. If you don’t realize the attack is coming, you can be more easily defeated. As you go about you daily labors trying to put food on the table and to pay the bills, the enemy is creeping up on you. Your enemy is gaining strength while you sleep. The attack will not be like attacks have been throughout history. The attack is a subtle attack. It is not bombs and guns that will win this war, it is sneaky manipulation of your subconscious, of the very process of thinking you rely on for your existence. All you have to do is wake up to it. It cannot happen if you simply start noticing it. Once you do, you will be so stunned. You will wonder how you didn’t see it all along. It is in your face. It has been in your face a long time. It is in your children’s faces.

There is an incessant and vast effort underway to convince you that you are not being attacked, that there is nothing to worry about or fear. They need you to believe it, for they know that the minute you stop believing it their plans being to fail.

We the people have a wonderful opportunity to make life easy and beautiful for everyone. We have a chance to clean up the construction site and resort the planet to its pristine natural condition. Like never before in history, world peace is within reach. The people can finally be what they have been believed to be for a few centuries at least, created equal. We can all rise to the clarion call to love one another and actually be source of love for the universe of physical existence. Let it be.

Media and Trust Issue

Trump is facing off with the fake news. I wish that term had not been selected. It leaves too much wiggle room and makes it easy to discredit the user. I like much better, agenda news.

We have it in us to think on a subconscious level that the news is some neutral and impartial source. We see it as our eyes outside ourselves. For reasons that must be analyzed back in time quiet far, we automatically tend to trust the talking-heads that voice the news.

I have examined that aspect of the news quite a bit. It is a psychological matter, and that area of understanding is anything but simple. You can search the browsers for information about it, but that requires consulting the criminal for advice to solve the crime.

I found a rather cursory story at: https://www.americanpressinstitute.org/publications/reports/survey-research/trust-news/ (I chose not to make the address a clickable link) The first paragraph points to the psychological factor but does not mention the word even once in the entire article. “For more than a generation, research has tried to identify the qualities that lead people to trust news. The work has concluded that in general people want journalism to be fair, balanced, accurate, and complete. It can be unclear, however, what these broad factors mean or how news organizations can achieve them.”

The American Press Institute. Reading what they have to offer about trusting the press is like asking the killer what he thinks about the murder. When I asked my Startpage search engine why people trust the news, their article, sited above, came at the very top of a very long list of killer’s answers. That alone proves how untrustworthy the news really is, but there are legions of other proofs.

I have read some books written in the early twentieth century. The authors, Bernays and Lippmann, were not the least circumspect or ashamed of themselves. Rather, they were proud and excited that they had discovered how to manipulate the subconscious of the public. They practically crowed their discovery. They were proud of themselves. I think they were right to be proud of themselves, but they unleashed a demon. In some of their writings they even mentioned such an eventuality. But they were simply excited by their discovery.

That is what it was: a discovery. They were discovering something that has been known by some for centuries, maybe for all time. The reason it seemed to them to be a discovery is because they took it to new levels and were finally able to turn the knowledge, the skill, into a money-making business. They chose to call it “public relations.”

Public relations is now a constant part of big business. In the early 1900s it was a novelty and they quickly turned it into a high-paying business. They soon had a long list of accomplishments they wrote about including getting women to start smoking cigarettes. Bernays was so proud of that accomplishment. He goes on and on about what they did to bring it about. The other accomplishments are less pernicious for the most part, but they are laced with other horrible deeds.

Ultimately, what they did was show the rich and powerful how to manipulate public opinion. One of the books is titled, Crystallizing Public Opinion. Imagine that! “Crystallizing” the opinions of the people! Clearly they knew how profoundly they were able to get into the psychology of the people and lead them down any path they desired. The media has turned the discovery into a weapon.

The greatest weapon ever invented is the one that can make people think what the user wants them to think. We use the word “media” for it. What men like Edward Bernays and Walter Lippmann discovered in the early twentieth century was like the discovery of gunpowder. It was a nifty and fun discovery that could be used to entertain and amaze, but it didn’t take long for someone to see it as a weapon that would provide a devastating advantage over enemies. When diligent men of relative innocence showed the world how to get into the minds of the people, it didn’t take long to see ways to use it as a weapon. The media is the most devastating weapon ever invented. Who has the power to obtain it and wield it?

People who have great wealth and power, the powerful privileged few (PPF). That is who! They have ample motive to protect what they value. Many of the PPF have been shown in the literature and movies to have been wonderful human beings who used their power and wealth for good. Andrew Carnegie is said to have been a philanthropic force who beleaguered the other PPF to give their wealth back to the people. J. C. Penny is said to have named his first business The Golden Rule. Money did not corrupt all who came to have it. Can that be said of all who came to have it?

No! Some of the people who came into great wealth were not so virtuous. If you study Carnegie, you will find plenty of reports about what many of the PPF actually thought of the man. It is very indicative of an attitude that became dominant in some of them. In the near hundred years since those days, that type has conquered the world.

The early progenitors of public relations have been left in the dust of the high-tech revolution, the one that displaced the industrial revolution. Lippmann and Bernays didn’t have an internet, social media, satellite television, and cellular telephones. It was not possible for them to crystallize public opinion to the extent to which it is now possible. The public is now being led around as though there is a chain attached to a ring in the public’s nose that can be yanked when it gets troublesome. Rationality and logic are just that, troublesome for the world conquerors.

The outrageous divisions of the public today are inexplicable absent the weapons being used to shape public opinion. In the guise of reason and rationality, people are championing some of the most egregious self-destructive concepts imaginable. The word “mother” is targeted for deprecation. We are being told it is wrong to use it. The same is being done to some of the human race’s most treasured and vital ideologies. Hapless victims of the most horrible weapon ever to exist are totally sure that they are acting with reason and logic. They are victims of a terrible weapon.

The weapon, the media. It is nothing like “fake news.” It is something much worse. It was used to keep the American public supporting some of the worst crimes against humanity ever committed. Its horror can be found in El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, and just about any nation or place there is on Earth. In the stark face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary that the people haven’t seen, Americans still think it was all done for virtuous reasons, that not doing it would have been unthinkable by good people. It is that easy to manipulate public opinion.

In Indochina during the late sixties and early seventies more bombs were dropped than ever in history up to that time. The evidence shows that millions of women, children, and non-combatant men were killed outright. Death and suffering caused by displacement and starvation added millions to the total over time. Neighboring nations suffered comparable horrors. It is simply too painful to even think about the reality of it. The media knows we don’t want to face it; all the more easy for the media to lie, suppress, omit, and frame the news so we don’t have to face it. Making the entire crime appear to be a virtuous action worthy of billions of hard-earned tax payer dollars was no trouble at all. To protect the peasant and city dwellers of the nations of the world the USA and its “allies” laid waste to them and the land they depended on for food, to say noting of the farm animals and crops that were killed in the process.

The Indochina wars are one horrific example of the media being used by the so-called “elite” and the people in government to carry out crimes against humanity with the support of good people. Hapless people. Manipulated psychologically. Deceived people. The minds of the good people were infiltrated and compromised long ago, and the operations are intensifying. More crimes against humanity are being conducted right now around the planet, but these crimes are not just bombings and shootings. They are not the types of crimes we can see and shake our heads in despair over. They are infiltration crimes. Crimes that murder the virtues of the people and turn them into demon’s helpers without letting them realize what they are doing, even causing them to think they are acting virtuously. It is the biggest and worst crime ever to be committed. Stalin and Hitler must be sick with envy.

I will reign myself in and close this post. I will leave you with what I think is the most profound and vital bit of freaking-out understanding. The United States of America has been turned into a demon that has committed atrocity after atrocity around the globe for over a century in our good name without ever letting the people know about it in anything like “fair, balanced, accurate, and complete” reporting of the news. I am sick as hell over what I have been able to find and confirm.

It would be enough to discover that it was all done in the past. That is enough to choke a good man to death. But it is still going on, and the agenda they are striving to achieve appears to be even worse than anything done so far.

A healthy and balanced good person is psychologically resistant to facing a truth that is more abhorrent than anything they can imagine. Even in worst-case scenarios a good person cannot get into the head of a psychopathic serial killer much less someone even worse, and that is what is necessary to see the truth about life today. You would have to be able to look through the eyes of a person who sexually tortures a little child to death with what passes for “delight” in the twisted mind of the demon doing it. I can’t do it. I will not do it. I don’t want to do and never will, but I can approach a rational realization that there are people out there that do such things, Now, can you understand that such a thing is nothing near the extent of the horrors that are taking this beautiful planet into hell right now if we don’t stop it?

Since Trump took the election, pedophile clubs and rings have been raided and exposed. The media is virtually silent about it. What better proof is there that the news is a weapon trained on the people? The media has been turned into the enemy of the people. If Trump acts too late, it will really be too late.

I derive no pleasure writing this article. I am sick to my soul over what compels me to write it. Someone had to.

Psychology Is Killing Us

You are doing things you don’t understand. All of us are. We can do the work and become better, but few do. We adopt beliefs. We don’t do research and tests first. We just adopt beliefs and data. The is so much faulty data and false beliefs in the people of the world we are all nearing our extinction, but we are poised to take all other life forms with us.

People believe in death. They believe in the superiority of humans. Some believe all living things are here for our use to do with as we please. They believe a variety of things regarding theological matters when is should be obvious that the truth should be the primary criteria in our quest. Others believe there is no God, that theism is just a human mental problem, and they think there is no God because they have not found him as they unravel the laws and characteristics of the universe. People believe they can eat whatever they like in complete disregard for the laws the scientists have discovered. Even though eating and other factors lead to the deterioration of their bodies and leads ultimately to death. To feel better about their faulty data, they invent myths that make them feel better about what they think. Then they teach them to their children. There is so much faulty data and many false beliefs in the people we are exterminating ourselves. It does not have to be this way. I turn now to a brief comment about how we can do something about the way it is.

You are a human. You have a brain. You have a huge social structure supporting you. You can do your own tests, but you will have to do those tests independently of your psychology as possible. You will have to set aside preconceived ideas and beliefs or they will make you see what you want to see and cloud the results of your tests. If you can manage to become a source of unconditional love for everyone and take better care of you bodies, your psychology will come within your grasp. I don’t know if we can be free of our psychologies for they me be inexorably linked to your identity, but you can improve them.

The Media and Your Opinion

Opinion is being installed. Look to yourself and analyze your opinions. You will discover that you have opinions about things that you did not participate in or witness. You will discover that opinions have been installed in you. Take heed and read. Here you will find some places to start looking. Ultimately, it will come back to looking a mirror that reflects your thoughts.

I have recently read a book that impacts the information I have studied from other books. Manufacturing Consent by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky is a pedantic academic study of the media up to 1986 when the book was published. It can be studied in conjunction with Propaganda by Edward Bernays and Walter Lippmann’s book, Public Opinion. Taken together these books supply information that is shocking to innocent people.

[I wrote an article after reading Lippmann and Bernays I titled “Installing Opinions” and sometimes “Opinion Installers.” I will include it below.]

The information these three books and many others bring to the people is vital to the future of humankind and all other kinds. Indeed, the world is poised at the brink of destruction. Herman and Chomsky have made it quite clear that unfathomable destruction and murder has been done by the USA and its helpers under the protection of a media that learned the tricks of the trade pioneered by Lippmann, Bernays, and others. Today we have moved further down the road to our end and there is little reason to think we can turn away without becoming aware of the methods being used to move us.

I hope you will apply yourself to the task by reading the books and any others that are relevant to the purpose. People are unaware of the complex systems that are being used to achieve agenda that are being kept secret. Complex systems and secret agenda are intrinsically elusive and difficult to discover. Let this article shed some light on them.

Once again, Installing Opinions:

My study of Edward Bernays and Walter Lippmann continues. These guys were publishing during the early 1900s. I want to copy and share some of their words so that people might find a way to combat the forces they taught the powerful of the world to marshal. There are so many people who have been influenced by those forces it has become imperative that this relatively new power become common knowledge.

Opinion is a fascinating subject. There is so much to learn about the subject people can spend lifetimes devoted to it. What is of utmost importance in my mind is that the people come to know that their minds are the target of forces that have been developed and refined into a fine art. It is the art of installing opinions. Yes, “installing” them.

At the turn of the twentieth century, techniques were being developed to install opinions in the minds of the people. It was not an “all-bad” thing. I think the men who developed it saw it as a useful tool for good, but they admitted it could easily be used to do evil. The methods they developed have been enhanced by the electronic revolution. In other words, the tools available to deliver the methods increased in number and power. Television, radio, computers, telephones, and movies added to the already pervasive printed media to give the installers of opinion even more power. Today, the power to manipulate the public has become monstrous. The divided public in the USA is a product of manipulation intended to accomplish some goal. What goal? That is another topic.

See for yourself what the fathers of opinion making were saying in the 1920s. I commit myself to the task of quoting them a little here. I am not doing this to make money, stroke my ego, make you look bad, or to indulge in the same manipulation discussed here. I do it strictly to help the people.
From Propaganda by Edward Bernays. His quote of Walter Lippmann’s book Public Opinion (I have this book too.)
Walter Lippmann of the New York World in his volume Public Opinion declares that the ‘significant revolution of modern times is not industrial or economic or political, but the revolution which is taking place in the art of creating consent among the governed.” He goes on: “Within the life of the new generation now in control of affairs, persuasion has become a self-conscious art and a regular organ of popular government. None of us begins to understand the consequences, but it is no daring prophecy to say that the knowledge of how to create consent will alter every political premise. Under the impact of propaganda, not necessarily in the sinister meaning of the world [sic] alone, the only constants of our thinking have become variables. It is no longer possible, for example, to believe in the cardinal dogma of democracy, that the knowledge needed for the management of human affairs comes up spontaneously from the human heart. Where we act on that theory we expose ourselves to self-deception and to forms of persuasion that we cannot verify. It has been demonstrated that we cannot rely upon intuition, conscience, or the accidents of casual opinion if we are to deal with the world beyond our reach.”
This article took some effort to translate. His use of the word “consent” is misleading to people in this time. Back then, and to this man, consent was something that had several meanings. It was used as a synonym for permission, much as we use it today. More importantly, it meant giving in to persuasion. That was the purpose of the “art of creating consent among the governed.” That guy was saying that they have discovered the way to get people to have the opinions they want them to have.

I ask you, is your opinion really your opinion? Or, is it something that skilled “artists” have implanted in your mind? The world is very complicated and only becoming more so. Humans have created organizations that are composed of other humans acting together to do things no single individual could possibly do alone. The organizations are powerful beyond description, and there are so many of them no single individual can be aware of all of them. They are operating around the globe and what they do has an enormous impact on you. They are shaping the world. They are not being watched. There is no oversight to keep them in the bounds of rectitude. They have become virtually self-serving much like a robot that has its own intelligence, defense systems, and objectives. Does this make you suspect that the people need to be made aware of it?

The Coming of the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth

Truths abound in the Bible. I have been reading the Christian Bible all my life. I don’t know how many times I have read it. Also, I have read a library of books about the Bible. It is strange that I can see something many times before it actually arrives in my mind. That is the case with the passages from John about the truth.

John mentions Jesus saying that the “Comforter” will come after him. Some Bibles say the “Advocate” will come. Other Bibles use other terms. In one I see the term, “helper” used. The different words used are matters of translating a language and of the psychology of the translator. Though there are differences of meaning that can be derived from the specific choice of words used, the overall-meaning remains. An advocate is not the same as a comforter, to be sure, but Jesus says someone will come after him. In every Bible I have examined the “Spirit of truth” is used to clarify the terms “Advocate,” “Comforter,” and “helper.” There is no translational disparity found there. Clearly the reference is to truth and to someone or something coming to help mankind unite in the truth.

Now that I have been addressing the truth by creating this website dedicated to uniting the people in the truth, a recent reading of the Bible passages about the coming of the Spirit of truth to unite the world has hit me. It makes clear that the mind works in “mysterious ways.” I never gave those Bible passages much consideration. Now I will.

I suspect that people are like me in this. We all see or read something that has little effect at the time but later, after more living, stands out. Is it not a fact that we see with our eyes but interpret the sights with our minds? Is it not obvious that the brain clouds the truth? We can think that if true data is used as the foundation of reason, more truth can be discovered by the mind. If the data used as the foundation of reason is false, can more truth be discovered by the mind? Even the answer to this question is uncertain. The mind can begin with true data and derive false data due to the influences of the mind. Perhaps it can begin with false data and derive true data. I can imagine it. Reason is a function that can go wrong. Seeing is also something that can go wrong. What are we to do?

Help one another. That is what we are to do. If we cannot be absolutely sure of what we think or even what we see with our own eyes, we must resist being convinced and keep open minds. Then we can work together to advance our acquisition of the truth. We can unite in the truth. We can reason and agree that uniting in the truth is something worth doing. I think mankind has been trying to unite in the truth since the beginning. History can be seen to prove it. It is an overwhelming tendency or urge. I think it has been that way because we somehow know that when we all agree, peace will break out more surely than any war ever broke out. The many wars and other horrors of our history are in many ways connected to mankind’s desire for the truth.

Mankind has a long history. Much of it is recorded and documented. What if it was all part of the road to the truth? Like a road that has many turns and forks, the road to the truth has been torturous. History is clear on this. Opinions about the truth have been the source of great travail. That fact amplifies the importance of uniting in the truth, and our urge to do so is made clear by our bloody history. It is time to bring to the world a spirit of cooperation. Together we can create a history of peace and love by uniting in the truth. The first thing we might do is to agree to seek the truth together in cooperation. If we can do it in the Spirit of Love, the light of truth will burst upon us. Imagine that!

Our lives are different when compared to the “birds of the air,” or the “lilies of the field.” We are more heavily influenced by our brains. Right or wrong, good or bad, our brains are involved in everything about us. Human arrogance is, I think, what makes us see ourselves as more conscious or above the other life forms. We have discovered that the birds and the lilies toil endlessly to survive, but they have not gone to war with destructive power that can kill all living things. Does that suggest that maybe we are beneath them? Evidence is emerging which suggests that the plants and animals are conscious by means means other than the brain. Here we can see that uniting in the truth will require work related strongly to the brain, or the mind. The complexity is daunting, but we can do it.

We can agree to cooperate to bring the world to the truth in all things. It will be much easier if we can find within ourselves love for one another so strong we would lay our lives down for our loved ones. This submission to the relegation of our lives to the service of the lives of our loved ones will unite us inexorably in a quest to unite in the truth. Which comes first. It doesn’t matter. One leads to the other.

I am a person who does not take the Bible literally. Indeed, I think a lot of what the Bible reports is false in the extreme. The truth about Jesus is lost in the Bible as I see it. I think God is far from what the Bible says of him. This does not negate the profundity of the wisdom that can be found there. It clearly does not negate the profound importance of the Bible to the affairs of mankind. Such is the case with the passages in John about the coming of the Spirit of truth.
Many with whom I have spoken tell me they revere the Bible because it is prophetic. It predicts things that happen. When Jesus reportedly tells his audience that someone will come to unite the people in the truth, he is prophesying. I see this as I would see a prophecy that someone will come who is a human. It in no way garners my reverence for the Bible. Predictions have permeated the experience of life for mankind since the beginning and in almost every area and aspect of human experience.
The writer of John demonstrates a basic human need, truth. Humans need the truth in all things. Two thousand years ago this was understood by some, maybe all. The truth is needed. Everyone seems to agree about this. We really need the “Spirit of truth” to come.

I am not feeling any affinity with the prediction John attributes to Jesus when he says one will come to unite the people in the truth. To me it is just an obvious need the human species has that has been unsatisfied. Driven to satisfy the need for the truth, the people have developed opinions about the truth. I am no exception. I have my opinions. Above all, though, I seek the truth and I want the people to unite in the truth. The biblical prediction of the coming of the Comforter can be applied to anyone and everyone. We and all who came before us are the Comforter.

I doubt that it is possible for someone to unite the people in the truth. Such an idea suggests some sort of miracle or magic. It is a non-sequitur. Uniting is something that involves many, not one. A leader does not do what the followers do. A leader has but a role to play in the actions of the many. If I can lead some to unite in the truth, I only join the effort of the many by performing a role in the process that is as important to me as it is to everyone. I seek the truth. I want mankind to unite in the truth. I have imagined the world after mankind unites in the truth, and I want to see that world come to pass. I have seen the world after mankind comes to love for one another, and I want that world to come to pass.

Jesus is said to have told those listening to love one another. He went further to make sure they understood exactly what he meant. “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love than this no one has, that one lay down his life for his friends.” Imagine a world in which billions of people love one another so strongly they would lay down their lives for others. I did that a long time ago. What I saw was so beautiful and desirable I committed myself to becoming one who loves everyone enough to lay down my life for them. Life has never been like is was before that.

I did it. I love everyone enough to lay down my life for them. It virtually hit me like a ton of bricks. I was changed instantly, and changes have been happening in me since. I saw the world in which we all love one another the way Jesus is said to have loved us, enough to lay down his life for us. It was so beautiful I soon dedicated my life to doing my part to help mankind create that world. It has taken me down paths I would not choose but had to take to accomplish my intentions. There is a long story to be told about it, but that is not the purpose of this article.

I want everyone to love everyone. It is my purpose, my meaning. Uniting in the truth will come with love, but love can come of the truth. I do all I can to bring both to universal manifestation. I created the website you are visiting for that reason. Maybe it is part selfish, for I want that world. It is far more, though, devotion to my loved ones. You. All of you.

Genetic Loss

We all know about the tech giants and the wealth they have gained. We know that people who specialize in computer technology and related fields make a lot of money. The business that pay them so well are gathering even more wealth. The wealth is also power. Power has migrated into the hands of high-tech people.

In poor taste, they get called such names as Geek and Nerd. It is cruel and a form of bullying. Even if these people are not able to articulate the details of the situation, they feel it. They know in visceral way at least that they are denigrated by the so-called “alpha” types. Well, they now have the power to deal with the idiots who abuse them.

We see their efforts everywhere all the time. The tables are being turned. Heterosexual white males are being targeted. Heterosexuality itself is being targeted. Gender is under attack. In the name of anti-racism, racism is being amplified. These and many other such thing have already become the norm.

Now, consider the war history of mankind. Who gets killed the most in them? The men in the military, of course. Since the days of Vietnam and Stalin, that has been changed quite a bit. Stalin had the intelligentsia of Russian killed. The wars during the Vietnam period got million of poor wiped out along with their homes and villages. But! Wars have a central them that never goes away despite shifts in casualty statistics and it is the loss of the best of the strong and courageous men.

Geneticists have said that the genome of the Russian people may never recover from the loss of genetic material during the wars and the Stalin purge. The same is being said of the French who suffered immeasurably from the Napoleonic and world wars. The human species is suffering from the loss of genetic material.

As the genetic material was lost the quality of offspring have suffered. Across the globe the strong and brave have been the ones removed from the gene pool. The virtuous and intelligent have also been depleted from the pool. We are seeing with our own eyes how such depletions affect the quality of human generations. So, lets put the high-tech people efforts to counter the bullying they have received with the loss of genetic material.

The push for population reduction, which goes back to the times of Thomas Malthus, and the loss of genetic material from the human genome is breaking the laws of natural selection. The survival of the strong and well adapted has been shunted off to the side by social organization. In a world that provides fabulous lifestyles to one percent of the people by taking it from the hard working and good people the greatest threat they face is quality men and women.

People of strength, intelligence, and courage who have virtuous character are the enemy of the one tenth of one percent who are living opulent lives of ease at the expense of the hard working masses. That explains more of our history than anything. It also predicts the future.

If we can recognize the real problems of life these days and join in an effort to bring prosperity to all rather than to the few, we can attain our dreams. We can bring lifestyles to the privileged few that they are not able to dream about yet. It can be for all people. For we have born the burdens of history and are that much closer to the days when our effort will finally payoff for all. It will require understanding the psychology of the people that perpetuates the status quo. It will require, also, the restoration of the genome of the human species.

Who is not aware of the breeding programs in animal husbandry? Breeding in the plant and animal kingdom has been a subject of science for a long time. It is clear that breeding determines the quality of offspring. It is a matter of genetics. Before social organization became strong enough to remove the laws of natural selection from human reproduction, people were shaped to survive the conditions of life. Now that we have changed the conditions of life by creating vast and complex societies that have little relation to the natural world and applied directed effort to the reproduction of our species, the laws of natural selection can be seen to have been broken. It is playing out in the behavior of the high-tech people and in the loss of genetic material from wars, purges, and genocides. It is disaster waiting to happen.

Humans have transformed the planet. If anything interrupts the maintenance of that transformation, the consequences will be unthinkable. This is what happens when the laws are broken. It is crime. Crime against humanity. Crimes against Life.

These things must be considered. Leaving out vital factors in our understanding and decisions must not be allowed. I am simply trying to bring some things to your attention. If you have not been considering them, please do so now. We have everything to gain and everything to lose.

Controversy Defined

I recently started reading a huge two volume book set by Paramahansa Yogananda. If you don’t know who he is, please do yourself a favor and discover him. The two books are titled, The Second Coming Of Christ. Here is a link to information about it on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Second_Coming_of_Christ_(Yogananda)

Here is one to Yogananda: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paramahansa_Yogananda

He wrote another book called, Autobiography of a Yogi. I read in in the seventies. He writes about the deathless guru in that book and others. I know most people believe everyone dies. Here is something that controverts that belief. I have read about that man in many other places. His name is Mahāvatār Bābājī. Some say he is thousands of years old and that his body is that of a seventeen year old. He neither eats nor drinks. Here is a link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahavatar_Babaji

People I was born with and grew up with have a very difficult time with the Indian history, philosophy, and religion. That is simply a matter of inculcation by society. Rise above it. Expand your horizons lest you fall off of the little world you surround yourself with. Controversy cries out to us all.

Controversy is the experience of the things we don’t know screaming at us to look. It is the racket created by false beliefs and untruths.

Investors Are Slavers

So many times I have listened or read of the magnanimous investors being portrayed as the backbone of American industry and progress. What a laugh inducing bunch of crap.

The slave owner who had many slaves and lots of land must have deserved the same accolades. They were producing lots of good products and services.

Fact: money is the chain around your ankle and the whip being lashed across your back to keep you laboring for the benefit of those who have the money.

Opinion Installing



My study of Edward Bernays and Walter Lippmann continues. These guys were publishing during the early 1900s. I want to copy and share some of their words so that people might find a way to combat the forces they taught the powerful of the world to marshal. There are so many people who have been influenced by those forces it has become imperative that this relatively new power become common knowledge.

Opinion is a fascinating subject. There is so much to learn about the subject people can spend lifetimes devoted to it. What is of utmost importance in my mind is that the people come to know that their minds are the target of forces that have been developed and refined into a fine art. It is the art of installing opinions. Yes, “installing” them.

 

At the turn of the twentieth century, techniques were being developed to install opinions in the minds of the people. It was not an “all-bad” thing. I think the men who developed it saw it as a useful too for good, but they admitted it could easily be used to do evil. The methods they developed have been enhanced by the electronic revolution. In other words, the tools available to deliver the methods increased in number and power. Television, radio, computers, telephones, and movies added to the already pervasive printed media to give the installers of opinion even more power. Today, the power to manipulate the public has become monstrous. The divided public in the USA is a product of manipulation intended to accomplish some goal. What goal? That is another topic.

 

See for yourself what the fathers of opinion making were saying in the 1920s. I commit myself here to the task of quoting them a little here. I am not doing this to make money, stroke my ego, make you look bad, or to indulge in the same manipulation discussed here. I do it strictly to help the people.

From Propaganda by Edward Bernays. His quote of Walter Lippmann’s book Public Opinion (I have this book too.)

Walter Lippmann of th4e New York World in his volume Public Opinion declares that the ‘significant revolution of modern times is not industrial or economic or political, but the revolution which is taking place in the art of creating consent among the governed.” He goes on: “Within the life of the new generation now in control of affairs, persuasion has become a self-conscious art and a regular organ of popular government. None of us begins to understand the consequences, but it is no daring prophecy to say that the knowledge of how to create consent will alter every political premise. Under the impact of propaganda, not necessarily in the sinister meaning of the world [sic] alone, the only constants of our thinking have become variables. It is no longer possible, for example, to believe in the cardinal dogma of democracy, that the knowledge needed for the management of human affairs comes up spontaneously from the human heart. Where we act on that theory we expose ourselves to self-deception and to forms of persuasion that we cannot verify. It has been demonstrated that we cannot rely upon intuition, conscience, or the accidents of casual opinion if we are to deal with the world beyond our reach.”

This article took some effort to translate. His use of the word “consent” is misleading to people in this time. Back then, and to this man, consent was something that had several meanings. It was used as a synonym for permission, much as we use it today. More importantly, it meant giving in to persuasion. That was the purpose of the “art of creating consent among the governed.” That guy was saying that they have discovered the way to get people to have the opinions they want them to have.

I ask you, is your opinion really your opinion? Or, is it something that skilled “artists” have implanted in your mind? The world is very complicated and only becoming more so. Humans have created organizations that are composed of other humans acting together to do things no single individual could possibly do alone. The organizations are powerful beyond description, and there are so many of them no single individual can be aware of all of them. They are operating around the globe and what they do has an enormous impact on you. They are shaping the world. They are not being watched. There is no oversight to keep them in the bounds of rectitude. They have become virtually self-serving much like a robot that has its own intelligence, defense systems, and objectives. Does this make you suspect that the people need to be made aware of it?

The Modern Schism



I am deeply perplexed. The division of people is not easy to comprehend. A deep schism has cleaved the people into two camps. I am fairly certain that both sides have good intent. Both think they are on the right track and are using true data to take sides. Still, it just doesn’t make sense.

We are all far more alike than different. The only thing that explains the schism for me is conditioning.

As I learn more about the ability that has been brought to modern times by such men as Edward Bernays, the more I see why things are the way they are.

 

We are living in unprecedented reality. The centuries, even millennia, of human history bear little resemblance to the reality of our times. Electronics, industry, travel, education, security, ease of survival and more are matter-of-fact, taken-for-granted things now. I think such things are wonderful and offer mankind opportunity never before available. We can move ahead into uncharted realities that seem to defy comprehension and superlatives.

 

Swords cut both ways. We know this. Opportunities for good can be opportunities for bad. The billions of people are being subjected to the double edged sword. Old attitudes and paradigms are being threatened by the developments of modern times.

Threats, both perceived and imagined, stimulate response. Obviously. The threatened are not limited to altruist types. Even a demon can realize a threat. There is another “thing” that can realize a threat: self-assessment.

 

A pharaoh in ancient Egypt believing himself a divine appointee protected himself from threats to his opinion of himself, and that is aside from his social standing. I don’t expect many to object to a claim that there are people today who share the Pharaoh type of attitude toward one’s self. Those people have perceived a real threat to their own opinion of themselves. They recognize the burgeoning, or re-birth, of “Equality.”

 

I think Equality constitutes a real threat to the most cherished “possession” of some very powerful people. They have all the physical things available on Earth today already, but they value their superiority above all else and they are willing to protect it. That is why the people are so divided today.

People who have possession of and/or access to the modern inventions and knowledge are able to cultivate public opinion. There can be no doubt that such cultivation is going on, but part of the cultivation is the instilling of an automatic rejection of anything that threatens the cultivated opinions. This is better understood as a form of conditioning. The scientific literature about this subject is abundant. The historically verified use of such conditioning is a widely accepted fact. The Nazis did it and the term “propaganda” was made a common term by them. It didn’t stop with their demise.

 

It will not stop until the people become fully aware of it and of how it is being done. That is the worst part of the problem.

 

We live in a world that has made “progress” totally attributable to sociological “compartmentalization.”  Organizing the people in limited spheres of work and knowledge has made it possible to achieve things unachievable by an individual. Coupled with  innovation and the increase in individual  productivity, specialization has become a widespread form of compartmentalization. It has become possible for a human to spend an entire life working on a very narrow subject and/or in a very narrow area of human endeavor.

Specialists are supported by the society. They need not protect themselves from wild animals. They don’t have to be able to plow and sow. They don’t need to know how to build shelter. They are only possible because society is structured to give them time to devote to their areas of specialization. You would not have a cellular telephone, a television, a computer, an internet, or practically everything around you without the social organization that made specialization possible. The specialists are not operating as islands.

Social organization has created the possibility of social rulers. People who receive the benefits of the specialists determine how to use what the specialists produce. When the physicists worked in their specific area of nuclear physics, few knew that they were part of a plan to produce a nuclear bomb. The discovery of the Genome was not done by people who wanted to create biological weapons. The work of the specialists is compartmentalized so absolutely they don’t even know what they are working on. The only ones who are able to make use of the efforts of the specialists are the ones at the top of the chain of compartmentalized organization.

This is an obvious observation, but it is one that begs for elucidation in this time of divided humanity. No one knows all about everything. The “highest” elite are unable to know all about everything they control for they are compartmentalized themselves. They depend on the chain of compartments even more than those operating in the compartments they control. We can understand the “chain of command” rather easily, but the chain of compartments needs understanding too.

As in the commonly repeated axiom that demonstrates how the passing of information from on person to another results in a breakdown of accuracy, the passing of information between compartments gets distorted, even lost. It can also get subverted. This is how the people working in altruistic fervor have their work used in ways they would never contribute to knowingly. Those at the top of the chain of compartments are not exempt to this. They too are working among the many chains of compartmentalized areas of human effort. There is no single person who is reliably in command or control. Even if such a person can be, it would be only a human.

People are subject to the experiences they have in life. Living affect them, us. We are all being conditioned by the very act of living. Psychology is only recently beginning to gain a reliable grasp of the ways of the human mind. Propaganda has only recently become a reliable and effective tool to use on the human mind. Living itself is no longer the only influence on the mind of man. Intentional conditioning is being used. It is being used more effectively every day. Someone is using it.  Some many are using it.

 

To protect their self-assessment, some are using the powers that have evolved from the long ascendancy of social development and organization to insure nothing ever causes them to doubt their superiority. To protect their social positions, their feelings of superiority must be protected. Otherwise, the people will stand next to them instead of beneath them. To put it crudely, the Kind doesn’t want to see anyone on the throne with him.

Humans are coming into new territory. What can be now could not have been before. Ahead lies what will be. We can go forward or backward, though. If we are to go forward, equality is a must. If we are to keep a stratified social standing, we cannot have equality. Herein lies the cause of the schism that we are seeing today.

Unity is probable. I say it is inevitable, but that is my opinion. You may have a different opinion. Maybe we can agree that what will be will be. We shall see. That is, if we retain the ability to see. The sight is under attack. That is my opinion, too. Is it true? If you have true sight, see. If you have true desires for the well being of others, you will desire moving forward instead of backward. We can still move into days, even centuries of blindness. We stand at the precipice of the schism that divides us. It is a wrent that has the potential for total destruction. Life is teetering on the edge. This planet is badly damaged already and the chance to fix it is rapidly fleeting. That is why I have spent this morning putting my fingers to the keys and my heart to the point.

I have been trying to compose this message for along time. It has rattled around in my mind incessantly now for decades. I can only hope I have satisfied its nagging compulsion to  express. God help us.

Playing the Game



I wrote the following as a reply to someone on a social media application. I want to share it here. I hope for the best for everyone.

The things you mention here are not news to me, nor are they things that I have not examined and studied for a very long time. In fact, they are so old and common among the people that it seems apparent that the views of the people are running along the prescribed lines desired by those who are deriving incredible power and benefit by the very opinions you are representing.

Facilitating trade, not good or bad, private vs. public purposes, and a huge stock pile of other facets of the monetary system’s subtle and overt complexity are the things that are being cultivated as the informed workings and understanding of the educated and smart, the ones who are “in the know.” It is all sophistry. It is the powder in the bullets that are being used to kill any tendency toward attaining prosperity, leisure, fulfillment, peace, brotherhood, and every other desirable thing for the people.

We are living in the controlled environment created by those who have sickening disdain for the people. They are of the faction that believe that kings are born deserving of rule and wealth far above the people of such low character and worth as to be dispensable, even deserving of pain, suffering, misery, and death.

Look back in history and find a time when there were not those at the top of the social constructs living off of the backs of the people. There is none. Those types have been around forever and they have passed down the kingdoms refining the methods of preventing usurpation and a rising up of the source of their lifestyles, the people. They stand in psychological ignorance of the nature of their desires and feeling. They also stand in preventative opposition to anything that would or could threaten their opinions of themselves and their opinions of the people. They are not beings of love and kindness. They are heartless monsters that have woven a web of sophistry over the people so effective that people cannot see things as obvious as a naked king believing he is fully clothed.

I will say again what my writings on one of my websites has been saying for a long time. If we the people will stand together in loving cooperation with one another to protect, nurture, satisfy, and develop one another, there will be no monetary system. Money is the tool of the demonic controllers. It exists to keep the people from access to the products of the society in which they work their lives away to keep functioning. It is the means whereby the most ruthless and demonic crime against humanity is on going and seemingly perpetual, and that is the crime that rewards the members of society differently. The work of one is not worth more or less to society than that of any other. The only way they have found to prevent threats to the positions they occupy is to cultivate a false wisdom among the people that makes them accept the reality that prevails around the world that the disparity of pay is good and inevitable.

Think of it this way, if you will. Lets say you create a game. You set up the game entirely. You created the board, let’s say. You create the pieces that will be used and set up what each piece can and cannot do. Then you determine the process that will be used to play the game including how the winner is determined. The game get spread out among the people who want to play and time passes. The players get more and more adroit at playing the game. Complex strategies evolve. An acumen evolves and some are way ahead of others in their grasp and efficacy of the multitude of the complex angles that the game makes possible. Eventually, there is a school developed that helps some develop skills to play the game. Elite players of incredible skill and character arise. They are revered by the less able players. These elite players begin to hold positions that are envied. On and on it goes until it is the main preoccupation of the people. That is what the monetary system is. It is a game that is not just played, it has become life as we know it.

It is all a game. We play it and we protect it. We condone it with pseudo intellectualism while suffering and death reign around the world in unfathomable and countless ways over decade after decade. No matter where the game is played, no matter who plays, no matter who is at the top of the game, the game remains, and it remains the same. In every nation of Earth, the game is the central core of life. In every nation there are those who live at the top of society enjoying lives of incomparable luxury and splendor while the masses that provide it all for them wallow in abject misery, ignorance, hopelessness with a few begrudged people being allowed to enjoy a bit better lives. The effort is eliminate the “middle class” is well underway. Those at the top detest them for the better lives they have even though those lives are a far cry from anything resembling the lives of those at the top.

I have hoped that it would be possible to get people to envision how wonderful they could have it. I thought that if they could see what is possible they might start to think of ways to get there, an incentive. Sadly, getting people to envision it is very difficult. They are conditioned to resist. They offer what they consider their insights into how to play the game instead to looking outside the game. And noting changes. The people are using the game and its structure against themselves.

The Hostile Universe



We live on the surface of a gigantic speck of complex compound elements hurtling through an incomprehensibly vast universe that is utterly hostile to the all we know as life. Struggling to survive between the centrifugal force that would rocket us from the surface into the vastness of life extinguishing space and the overwhelming gravitational force that would pull us down and reclaim every element that composes or bodies, we ride in compound motions that rival any carnival ride ever devised. Alternating between the deadly heat and radiation of a star and the freezing stillness of outer space, we have worked for many centuries to establish for ourselves a home where we can manage to replenish our corporal form in sleep sufficient to awaken and tend the biological imperatives all living things must manage. We are all here together in a small area endeavoring to live in the midst of relentless deadly forces and circumstances.

We are not very different. From the smallest microbe to the largest Giant Sequoia, we all cope with the same hostility to existence. We are many combinations of the same complex elements that make up everything we have been able to detect. Billions of galaxies careen through the unfathomable void of space interacting responsively to the same forces that compel our gigantic speck around its star. That star orbits around the center of one of the billions of Galaxies composed of billions of other stars, planets, and other things. All that, and as far as we can tell everything, including all living things, is made up of atoms that resemble galaxies and solar systems. If we could see it all at once, from the immenseness of the macro-universe to the infinitesimal micro-universe, it would look like one heck of a lot of the same stuff swirling in so many directions all that the same time it defies consciousness.

Everything is in motion. Noting is solid. Nothing is permanent. (We postulate and theorize that energy and matter are permanent, and then argue and fight over their origins, but that is a subject for another time.) Form is utterly and completely in flux at all times. What we consider our existence is nothing but the stuff of the universe put together in a “form.” Maybe that is why we are called a “form of life.” Seems like a good way to put it, doesn’t it? Life forms abound. The diversity is extensive and the multitudinous diversity of life forms that have gone before us is hard to conceive. Amongst all the forces that work to change the form of any and every material thing including life forms, life continues through what we call “time,” to exist despite all the forces that work against its existence.

At this point in that time, we can see into the distance further than ever. The instruments we have invented have revealed the macro and the micro infinity better than we could relatively recently, and still we have not found life anywhere. We might someday, but so far, we have not. Life seems to be very rare indeed.

The hostility of the universe to life is something we all share. None are exempt and life is only burgeoning. It is in its nascence. From our relative perspective, life appears to have been around a long time, but that relativity is a simple human consciousness phenomenon. Compared to the universe, we are so new we have only just begun to exist.

The struggle to continue to exist has become something much different today. We are not coping with only the hostility of the universe itself. We are being forced to cope with the hostility of forces and circumstances we have created ourselves. Our power and our accumulated legacy has become a threat to life itself. We can extinguish it all with our nuclear power and our nuclear waste products. As if the volatility of the earth and the solar system is not enough to cope with, we have heaped upon our backs survival problems that are actually likely to cause the burgeoning of life in a dead solar system to end up being just a brief spark that made a flash and died before it could manage to find a way to sustain itself.

 

It is not too late. In fact, the time has only just come when we can  establish life in the hostile dead universe in something like permanence. We will have to hurry. The momentum is powerful, but we are strong enough to divert it. We can direct the flow of forces and elements within ourselves and in our little area of the universe. It will not be easy. We will have to join together world-wide. We will have to recognize the imperatives and leave the optional for another time. We must stop the killing and the fighting. We must establish peace on earth. Regardless of our differences, which can be discerned only by those accustomed to and well acquainted with this thing we call life, we must join together to resist the forces that constantly work to bring about our dissolution.

The human species has progressed very far. The other species have too, but we are the only ones who have grabbed the forces and the elements and created things that threaten all life. But the very things that are now a threat to life are the things we can use to establish life as something more than a “flash in the pan.”

[This came to me last night at about three o’clock in the morning. I have a lot more to add, but no time to add it right now. Please, stay tuned.]

Be Happy



It is a beautiful day, again. The cold rain is falling. The plants are hydrating, the soil is growing, and life is renewing. Rain seems to be a problem for some lifeforms. I saw a grackle high on a wire near a telephone pole shaking his feathers. Then few more flew over a lot higher. They have no goggles! I try to imagine what it is like for them flying in the rain. The huge wasp nest outside my window has a lone wasp left. At one time not long ago it was densely covered with family members. I don’t know what happened to the others. The one that is still there doesn’t move at all. I opened the window so the warm air from the heater would get to it. Strange is the world. The very thing that sustains us takes us out.
 
I enjoyed the privilege of taking Bryleigh (my goddaughter) to school this morning. She spent the night here. I got up early and prepared some food for her to eat and some to take to school for lunch. That girl has become the light of my life. What a joy! I feel paternal. I am enjoying the feelings fathers must get from having a child. For some reason unknown, I have not had children, and I enjoy them immensely. Getting Bryleigh to school in the cold rain was a pleasure of incomparable proportions. My mind races with joyful contemplation about just what this is. I am convinced of reincarnation and ascension as the only way to break from the cycle. Who was she before? How is she fitting into my life? I can imagine a lot of the infinite possibilities. I can also know how lucky I am.
 
Wow! I feel so wonderful! My sixty-six year old body is feeling some of the effects of my hard and abusive lifestyle, but my spirit is just soaring. I am so incredibly happy. I have said to others for 46 years now that I am in bliss. The word does not satisfy. Bliss is so many different things to people. How can anyone know what I am trying to say? What I can tell you unequivocally is that Love is the reason I feel so good. When I made the effort to love everyone, bliss overcame me. It conquered me! It imbued me with so much I cannot relate it to you, but I can try to tell you it gave me bliss so intense I had to take time to keep from dying in the rush of it. It has never waned. Over all the years I have gotten used to it, but that doesn’t detract from it. I had to learn to function while riding a wave of sheer joy so intense it addled my senses. By now, I have gotten a handle on it, so to speak.
 
I am empowered by Love. It keeps me in the world. It gives me purpose and joy. It has opened the secrets of the universe to me. There was a time when understanding flooded into my consciousness so profusely and so profoundly I was existing in a movie-like state of wondrous astonishment. About six months after Love took me up, I found a book in which Jesus was telling the people that God would teach them the secrets of the Universe once they had been prepared by the Mother. He said the knowledge would just enter them, even as they slept. I know what he meant. Transformed by Love, my mind, my very psychology morphed into something altogether new and ineffable. I have found an amusing way to put it: The glass is both, half full and half empty. I think the story in the Bible is reverent here. It mentions the Tree of Life, a forbidden tree, like the Tree of Knowledge. No matter what you think of the Bible, those trees are interesting. I feel as though I have been allowed to eat of both. That diet led me to God and Goddess.
 
The Mother and the Father blessed me with an appearance. I am not going to be able to pass on to others the impact of that visit. I don’t really want to try. Some things are best left to be experienced for oneself. My earnest and powerful desire this morning is to try to tell you that everything is going to be alright. Our heavenly parents love us. None are not loved by them. I know there are those whom we would think evil and horrible, justifiably in my opinion, but I understand that there is a lot going on that I do not understand. Unconditional love is unconditional. I think some people need more experience to become the beautiful creatures they can be, and I have no doubt that will happen. Please know that our heavenly parents love this planet, too. It will not be allowed to die. There IS a God! There IS a Goddess!

The Philosophy of Keeping the People Poor and Ignorant



The Philosophy of Keeping the People Poor and Ignorant

Let it be known around the world that the conditions of your life are not the natural results of living in a society on Earth. You work all your life and have but a small fraction of the available things, services, and pleasures. The people toil endlessly for very little. In too many places on Earth today there is starvation and depravity beyond horror. In the US the stress endured in the quest to acquire the money to pay the bills, buy the things needed to live some level of comfort is so intense that many are driven over the limits of their ability to cope. Crime comes from such stress; family troubles come from such stress; deep psychological problems come from such stress. It could easily be reasoned that most of the problems people face are the results of the stress to survive in a world so obviously overflowing with abundance and so easily acquired by so few.

The many examples of people living opulent lives of leisure provokes feelings in some of the people that cannot be identified nor understood. They work at a subconscious level to undermine the peace and happiness that is every person’s due. Envy and resentment abound. Some are joyful for the fortunate. For many, though, other feelings that are undefined and/or misunderstood occur that are denied or unnoticed. They swim around in their beings like deep water fish that churn the sediment at the bottom clouding the water but can’t be seen from the surface.

When you are hungry and when your children are hungry, it is not easy to witness the vast amounts of food that sit on display all around that you cannot have because you don’t have the money to buy them. This basic need is but one of the things that society has made available which cannot be obtained by almost all the people. There are countless others. Above all is peace and happiness.

Some people do not want a world of happy and satisfied people. They work to make certain that the people are never fully satiated and that they never have much free time. They know that the people are aware of the abundance they enjoy. It is important to them that the opulence they enjoy is visible. It makes them feel superior. It helps them enjoy their abundance.

The things I have written above are obvious to me. In retrospect, I am not sure how I came to this understanding. I am certain that Love made me what I have been for the past 45 years and that it somehow enhanced my abilities. Things became obvious to me. When I tried to discuss them with my friends, it became clear that what was obvious to me could not be discerned nor comprehended by many others.   I had to come to the fact that there was no way even to reveal them to some. It is a very sad situation, but sadness is good when it is in its right place. Now I have discovered that someone else, maybe many, discovered or was taught some of the things that appear obvious to me while being indiscernible to others. His name is Thomas Jefferson. He wrote the Deceleration of Independence for the colonies that became the United States of America and was a vital contributor to the Constitution that established the experimental form of government that surprised the world.

I have been reading about Thomas Jefferson. I have a beautiful book that was published in 2002 but is a new printing of an older assemblage of Jefferson’s writings. The original book was put together and published in 1939. My heart is soaring with glee as I read his words. Jefferson wrote many letters to many people. They have been preserved and it is possible to read the man’s words today. To say he was remarkable is to understate the facts. Again and again I read passages that are very beautifully worded and which elegantly demonstrate many of the concepts that I have discovered in my quest.

Mixed feeling swirl from some of the things he wrote so long ago. I want to quote far more of his words than is practical. However, there is one paragraph I am compelled to quote in this post because it says what I have endeavored to say many times but never with the eloquence Jefferson achieved. It was written to Supreme Court Judge William Johnson in 1823, many years after the establishment of the constitutional government of the United States. He died three years later. During his presidency, he appointed Judge Johnson to the Supreme Court and by the time of the writing of the letter quoted here, he had reflected on his life and his work for many years. The quote below may represent something he learned later in life, but I doubt it. It seems it was something he knew as a young man and was set against during the convention of men who debated and finally assembled the Constitution. You can see the entire letter at this website: http://founders.archives.gov/documents/Jefferson/98-01-02-3562

Now the quote:

the fact is that, at the formation of our government, many had formed their political opinions on European writings and practices, believing the experience of old countries, and especially of England, abusive as it was, to be a safer guide than mere theory. the doctrines of Europe were that men in numerous associations cannot be restrained within the limits of order and justice but by forces physical and moral wielded over them by authorities independant of their will. hence their organisation of kings, hereditary nobles, and priests. still further to constrain the brute force of the people, they deem it necessary to keep them down by hard labor, poverty and ignorance, and to take from them, as from bees, so much of their earnings as that unremitting labour shall be necessary to obtain a sufficient surplus barely to sustain a scanty and miserable life. and these earnings they apply to maintain their priviledged orders in splendor and idleness, to fascinate the eyes of the people, and excite in them an humble adoration and submission as to an order of superior beings.

Punctuation has changed since Jefferson’s time, but the things said in this quote have remained far too true. Even as I wrote and said as well as I can that we need not live as we do and made the case so many times that we are being held down by those who have the power to do so, these words of Thomas Jefferson awaited my discovery of them. I rest my case. Thank you.

Taking Back The Country



I have been for a long time content to limit the posts on this site to matters that are worldly. I have refrained from making more specific comments about the United States or any other nation. The lack of interest has made me rethink. The people have the power, but they are not using it. It is very sad. So, I am now putting something out there that is a bit more specific. I feel that the people of the USA are ready to make some changes. When I see ideas proposed, I am stunned by the lack of substance. I will, therefore, make a more substantive contribution, if I do say so myself.

What would you do to make things better in our government?
Here are some of my ideas. These are just rough ideas. A refined version would be needed and more added.

1. End the government’s methods of funding itself by means other than direct tax.

2. Prohibit lobbying. Have causes delivered directly the the entire house.

3. Audit all members of government annually. No money, job, or other form of reward will be obtained for any favor, not even for an audience.

4. Prohibit candidates from financing a campaign by any means other than from a general fund set aside from taxes collected for that purpose. All qualified candidates will receive equal funding and will be allowed ONLY equal time in any form of media.

5. Require all members of Congress to pass a test on the various aspects of any and every bill or action they have before them, and when they all pass, a vote can be taken.

6. All members of government will have their pay and benefits approved by the people by ballot.

7. All fines collected by any agency of any government will be collected into a fund that will be distributed equally to the people when it reaches an amount predetermined by the people.

8. All branches of all and every government will not be allowed to participate in any business of any kind.

9. No government branch or agency of any branch will be allowed to sell any government asset unless the people approve the sale by popular vote and any funds derived shall be distributed to the people.

10. All import duties will be distributed to the people.

11. Military forces will not be sent into action without the consent of the people by 3/4 majority vote.

12. All laws passed by the federal government will be removed and the original laws in the Constitution will be the limit of its laws unless the people by a majority of 3/4 approve new ones.

13. Governments will not be allowed to conduct any operations in secret except in time of war and all details will be fully revealed at the end of the war. There will then be a full accounting for all actions and responsible parties and individuals will be held accountable as heroes, criminals, or otherwise.

14. The federal government will print and issue all forms of money and no bank will be allowed to have access to it by any means other than deposits by the people. Money will be issued according the the gross domestic product and will be distributed to the citizens in a portion equatable to production so that it can be put into circulation. Available currency will be limited to the amount needed for the convenience it offers and in the conduction of business with other nations, all such business will be approved by the people before it can transpire.

15. All corporations will have a limit imposed upon them regarding profits. None will be allowed to charge enough for their products and/or services the accumulate funds beyond a limit determined by the people in a 3/4 majority vote.

16. Companies that produce in other nations will be charged an import tax that levels the pricing with that of similar products produced in this country. Other countries employing their own people and exporting to the US will be charged a reasonable import fee, if any.

I can go on like this all night. If you want to fix this country, start thinking of something different. These are just food for thought and could be refined.

The Court of Public Opinion



From its lofty pedestal, the court of public opinion hurls opprobrious disdain in righteous indignation upon the lowly plebs who dare to entertain heretical thoughts. Conformed opinions! Nothing less will be tolerated. Greatness be quiet! Millennia of progress in institutional justice can never trump the ever-present social persecution, and it thrives even still. Persecution of the heretic by social pressure pales other forms.
Public opinion is beyond reproach. The masses form gangs to quell any fresh ideas that spring from the fertile soils of inspiration. In total arrogance and self-righteousness, the erroneous opinions of the public persecuted to death such greats as Socrates, Jesus, and countless others. Galileo spent the remainder of his life in prison for daring to controvert the prevailing opinions about the solar system. And still the court of public opinion squelches all who dare to even discuss the most important areas of human awarness. Even while claiming conquest of the tendency to persecute, the worst sort of persecution flourishes; social pressure. Who will brave the countless jurors who have the power of persecution?

“To discover to the world something which deeply concerns it, and of which it was previously ignorant; to prove to it that it had been mistaken on some vital point of temporal or spiritual interest, is as important a service as a human being can render to his fellow-creatures, and in certain cases, as in those of the early Christians and of the Reformation…(some) believe it to have been the most precious gift which could be bestowed on mankind.” John Stewart Mill, ON LIBERTY

An Exchange With A Reader In Greece



I am enjoying a good reception in nations across the world. A young man in Greece is chatting with me on Facebook. Below is something I wrote to him today in response to his messages. I think it is worth repeating (so to speak) here. I put explanations in brackets so that it will be easier to understand.

 

Okay! So, I had best address you as Either. [He has a Greek name] My computer does not type Greek. I do not know of any significant meaning for my last name, Bishop [He asked about it.]. It could have something to do with Catholics, but not that I know. I do not find people boring. [He asked if I find them boring.] I find them fascinating. I have been trying to understand them for a long time. I am 65 years old and the past forty-five years have been dedicated to my research and investigation into people in general. I am limited to the people around me, so I have a lot to learn. I am not happy about many people. They seem to lack virtue in too many cases and they seem to be misinformed far too often. Also, people seem to be unable to discover reality. In fact, they seem to even think that reality is a relative concept and that they create their reality. The truth that can be found in such an idea eludes them, in my opinion. Still, I have come to recognize many aspects of reality that make me think that everyone always does the best they can do and that movement in the development of humans is constant and inexorable. (Pardon any English that makes this hard for you to read.) I have found that very few people share my view on this topic. I have written about it already, but I intend to do so again.

I have found meaning for my life. [He asked if I had found the point of life.] I wrote an article about it and posted it on my site that bears the article you read. www.thepowerofthepeople.org [He responded favorable to my article, How to Save the World Overnight.] It is called. “My Epiphany In Love.” There are a lot of articles on that site that I have written.

I fear for the world. I see that there is a likely cataclysmic consequence for the ways of mankind. That is why I write for The Power of the People and others. I have no doubt that if we do not take the right actions, the Earth may be made virtually uninhabitable. The nuclear powers in both explosives and energy production are enough to destroy the conditions that make life possible, but we are doing more. We are covering the planet with human things and destroying the planet’s ability to prosper as fast as we can. I feel the urgency and want to rally people to the danger while bringing them to the reality that we now have the ability to make life far better and more beautiful than people can believe.

The people have attitudes, psychology. It is steering the work we do. People seem to be unable to see the beautiful potential we now have. It is not like it was for many thousands of years. We are not struggling to survive like we had to before the industrial revolution, the evolution or morality, and the growth of knowledge. We can make life for all living things beautiful. To do that, we have to overcome the attitudes that people have guiding their beliefs, thoughts, and actions. Corruption must be recognized and removed. False beliefs must be seen for what they are. Truth must become common. I think the truth will unite us for I think it is mostly the same for all of us. We differ in the smallest ways and have almost all characteristics in common. We are all here and now. The world is what it is. The truth does not require your belief and the truth is that we will come to know that we are all in this together living in a reality that is the same for all of us. Our unique aspects are simple matters of location and constitution. You see the world from your place through your eyes, but you are looking at the same gigantic thing that I am looking at. When we communicate effectively, we can construct a more accurate and detailed personal awareness of reality. We have fought over opinions throughout history. Now is the time to find the truth. We can do it if we will open our minds and let go of the things that prevent us from seeing the truth.

Sir Thomas Moore Understood



It can be frustrating sometimes to discover that the things one has gleaned for oneself were already gleaned by others long ago, but the frustration is only temporarily, for conformation and verification such a discovery brings is highly satisfying. Sir Thomas More and I are of like mind, as seen in the quote below.

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 objective of The Power of the People is uniting the people of Earth who want to make the world more like the one Sir Thomas Moore wrote about in the above article. The important thing for now is hope. We all need hope. It is getting harder and harder to believe there is reason to think things can get better without first getting much worse. It does not have to be that way. We have the power to engineer society to serve us better. As it is today, society is just something that came about virtually by accident. There are, however, those who would engineer society so that they have great advantage over everyone else and even so that only horrors come to pass. They are few, and we are many. If we do not command our energies, someone else will.

What It Is All About



Claudia sent the quote below to some of her people when they thought my Facebook post about my website The Power of the People was spam and I asked her to tell them about me.

“He is my cousin and I don’t know what it is about. It is not spam, so do what you like. I’m not doing it because I,m computer dumb.”

When I saw her post, I wrote the post you see below in response.

Thank you Claudia. I appreciate you taking time to come to my aid. You can log into Facebook and use it just fine. That means you are not so “computer dumb” that you can’t add you name to the list of people who subscribe to the website that I use to post things I write. I am doing the small things that I can to help the world. I have spent decades trying to find solutions to problems that are hurting us all. I have ideas that might work and I publish them on a website I built and pay to have on the internet. Also, I have realized things about some ordinary things we all deal with every day that I never realized before and that most people still don’t realize. I write about them and put them on the website. These realizations are all things that might help us have better lives and even a better world. That is “what this is about.”

I am trying to get more people to take an interest in “saving the world.” Maybe you don’t know, but I’ll bet you do, that this old world is on the brink of destruction. So, let’s say it is not on the brink of destruction. Okay! Well, there is a lot of injustice and way to many hard working people who can hardly make enough to survive. You and I came from a long line of people who have worked very hard all our lives and have little to show for it. I am trying to change that, because it is not fair. People who are virtually worthless horrible people live in wealth for doing nothing we need in this world while the people who do all the things that must be done get virtually nothing. The only reason it is that way is because some have found a way to cheat the system and to cheat you and me.

My love for people, especially you and the others of my family, drives me. I cannot stop and I never will. All our lives we have struggled to get by. Yes! We do get by, but that is not enough when you consider what is going on in this world. Yes, you and I have things those who are cheating will never have; the love of a good family, the peace that comes from knowing we work hard and do not cheat. I know all that and more, but I also know that the system is cheating us and that it is driving the world to the brink of destruction and over that brink. The only way to stop it is to get the people organized as a family and stand up to be heard. We the people have the power. I am trying to get us organized.

It is not an easy thing to do. I thought it would be very easy, but I was wrong. People drag their feet. They find reasons not to join in. Just as you said you are not going to do this because you are “computer dumb,” others are finding similar or other reasons. That cannot be permitted. We have to do something! Please, Claudia. Join me.

Subscriber Update



I received a lot of new subscribers one day and it seemed suspicious. I checked it further and found that they were all spam. This prompted me to inspect the list of subscriber I already had and I found that over half of them were spam. I deleted them. It took a long time. I am not sure if the ones that I left are real or not.

I set up a new subscriber system that requires a confirmation email which I hope will solve the spam subscriber problem. If you were deleted, please, sign up again.

It was a sad moment for me when I realized I didn’t have near the number of subscribers that I thought I had. Oh well. I do what I can. There are a lot of people who know me who are not subscribers. When I checked with them, I learned that most use only a cellular telephone to access the internet. Understandably, they don’t care too much for reading long articles. What can I do?!

I have a spam filter that removes spam comments. It has removed over twenty thousand. I am not able to fathom the mentality that does such things. Too many people are not dedicated to doing only good.

The Power of the People site has not been promoted at all. I suppose you could consider a Facebook page advertising, but if it is, it is the only advertising there is at this time. I plan to do something to promote the site, but I have not decided which way I want to do it.

There is no end to my confoundment about the slow movement of mankind toward better ways. It seems to me that the plans set forth in this site would virtually go viral quickly. I’ll keep trying.

Thanks for your time.

Notice of Current Statistics



As of this day, Nov. 29, 2015, 1,289 people have subscribed to this site. There are people in almost every nation on Earth subscribed, including Russia and China. This is giving me hope. Four people subscribed today! I have done noting to promote this site. I don’t know how it gets found. I do, however, intend to find a way and then to begin promoting it.

I have been having a tough time keeping the hope alive. Futility keeps trying to get me. Sometimes I start to feel that people have failed themselves. Observation bears this out, but then comprehension enlightens the view. When Jesus said, “…they know not what they do.” as quoted from the Bible, he set the tone that has endured the ages. Every time I get a notice that someone has subscribed to this site, futility takes it on the chin. Thank you all. You are hope incarnate.

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.

Inflation

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.

War

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.

Savings

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



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.

Leaders

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.

Morals

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.

Utopians



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



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.)

Attitude Analysis



I keep hearing people say that things are only going to get worse. They say the only way for things to get better is for some horrible and vast tragedy to happen. It’s a variation of the old attitude that one must first hit bottom to get better. No doubt this attitude was born of experience, but is it the only experience that we remember?
Has nothing wonderful ever happened that made things change? Speaking from my experience, the answer is a definite “yes.” So I ask you, can’t the world change because something vast and wonderful happens? Why does it have to be something horrible? It doesn’t.
Attitude is what is represented by the way people project the future. Some say attitude has a strong influence on the future. When we consider something, we might want to bear this in mind. Your attitude is more within your power than you might think.
Something incredibly wonderful is coming. It is a going to make all that has ever happened seem to have been the only way it could have come about. The ability of humans to comprehend the magnitude of the beauty and joy of it is not quite up to the task at this time. Watch as that ability takes a giant step forward with the coming changes.
The long hard journey that we know as history was the path to the conditions we are going to achieve. From centuries of shortage and toil will come the accomplishment of plenty and fulfillment. A cursory examination of the changes brought about by the “industrial revolution” easily reveals the fact that things can change quickly with the right stuff.
I am writing an article that will at least get people thinking. It might do vastly more than that. It is just a simple idea, but it is one that has come at the right time. Stay tuned to this station for breaking ideas.

Where Are We Going?



Perhaps you have noticed that the people seem to have no defined goal for making life on Earth become what we would like it to be. Things have always seemed to happen more by chance than intent. Sure, we intend some, but what is the big picture for the future? There are probably those who have plans, but are they working to make things better for everyone or are they working to make things better for themselves? Are they inclusive of all people?

You can be sure that everyone cannot be rich in the systems of the world today. I will tell you that everyone can be even richer than the rich in a different system. In fact, the term “rich” as meaning having lots of money would vanish.

Let’s make a plan. Let’s design it to achieve a virtual Utopia. I think that there is no limit to how wonderful life can be, so “Utopia” becomes a word less desirable. Still, it works for the moment.

Who can ague with a plan that makes everyone happy? Some would! They will have to cope with their own feelings. I suppose a Pharaoh with divine privilege  might not like such plan. How could the Pharaoh feel superior then?

The plan seems simple to me. Making it happen less so. Imagine this site having the support of the majority of the world’s people, or some other site that has similar plans. That would sure help.

Plan Utopia!

This form of economy is what I promote in The Power Of The People.org

Everything should be available without the need for money.

My Honor



People are signing up as subscribers to this site in ever growing numbers. Every day, nearly, at least one more person signs up. Lately there have been many every day. It continues to grow. The articles are being read by people in twenty-one different countries. I am so honored! Thank you for caring.

I have no idea how this site is being found. I have done nothing other than create the site, write the articles, and post it. The only thing I have ever done to promote it is to ask my Facebook friends to check it out.

I have a very large amount of material to post. I am rewriting some and debating the wisdom of posting some. I have to fight tendencies. I am trying to keep this a site of ideas about how to do things differently, better. It is too easy to slip into complaining about the way things are. I also try to keep it centered around things that we all have in common, as opposed to tackling the things we disagree about.

Uniting around our common needs and desires will make the world something that seems more a dream at this time. We can do it. The incentive is greater than suspected. People are likely to do things they want to do. I am stunned by the number of things people do that they do not want to do. There is abundant human energy for creating something that we all want. If I can accomplish my goal, the vision of how it can be will be made clear.

In that light, a quote from Orson Scott Card’s book Ender In Exile, comes to mind:”True believers in a cause often behaved in self-defeating ways because they expected other people to see the rightness of their cause if they just stated it clearly enough.” Reading that gave me pause. I certainly feel that a clearly stated cause if necessary, but I am not naive enough to expect others to see the rightness of it simply because it is stated clearly enough. Only those who have come to a place in their lives that makes it possible for them to see the “rightness” will see it. Fortunately, many are in such a place, as evinced by the large number of people who have subscribed to this site.

I tell you sincerely, I appreciate that you find what I have to say worth reading, even if nothing else.

Love Is The Answer



I put a new article on this website. I hope it does what I hope it will do. Try this little part of it:

So, try to love everyone. Try to find the answer in love. You can do it. I know you can. You may need to develop a higher level of love, a stronger love, a better love, whatever relative word you want. But you can start by simply trying. I think an earnest desire is really all that is required. Just evaluate the love that you feel and select what you think is the strongest and best love that you know, and then try to feel that way for everyone. When you find something preventing it, find a way to go ahead through, around, under, or over it. Overcome all obstacles. Realize that everyone lives in the subjective reality that they only can live. It is theirs and they can only deal with it with only what they bring to the table, so to speak. No one is smarter than they are. No one is more capable than they are. No one does anything they cannot do. No one ever does less than the best they can do at the time under all the circumstances they face, and yet few ever do as well as we think they should have. We change with every moment. What we couldn’t do a moment ago, we may be able to do now. What seemed the thing to do at the time may never be the thing to do again. How can you not love someone when you understand them and the circumstances thoroughly? They are mostly just like you. The differences are minute. The circumstances are never the same. It doesn’t matter what they do or who they are. You can love them because you want to love them. Doing so in sincerity will yield rewards beyond this author’s capacity to communicate.

I am waiting here for you. I wait in my private little paradise “that makes me think of two,” as Neil Young put it. I think of everyone though. I am here. Join me. It is the lonely thing left for me to want.

Limited Resources



People still think that the resources of Earth are limited. They think there can be no equality in the standard of living because of it. This type of thinking is too constrained and based on too little research. The Earth is not the limit of our habitat and the Earth is not as limited as some would have us believe.

There are those who have made a distinct case for the abundance of resources. Read The Ultimate Resource by Julian Simon from1981 Princeton University Press. This is a person who has done the research. He is not buffaloed by the propaganda of limited resources that is so needed by capitalists that they would stop at nothing to perpetuate the myth. Malthus pundits should look more deeply into the motivation of the reverend to write his book.

The constraints of the mind are not easily overridden, but they must be overridden. It is imperative that we examine our thought processes and determine the validity of our givens, assumeds, and theorized. Base thinking on free processes instead of per-programmed processes. It is nonsense to examine the world and compare its resources to the consumption rate produced by our current systems; systems laced with evils of all kinds. Can you consider alternative ways to live, other than in a capitalistic society? If not, keep trying. There is a lot of effort being expended to prevent people from thinking in terms of working together for the common good. Instead, it’s competition and greed, adversity and hardship. Imagine unemployment figures in the fifty percent range. The system would collapse. Depression would destroy us. We live in and advocate, mindlessly, capitalism even though it depends on never slowing down the work, never having enough, keeping people working by depriving them and luring them on with the “carrot and stick.” Scarcity is a means for keeping profits and prices high. Meanwhile, all that can be done to make the word “communism” into a bad word is being done. Try not to forget that working together and sharing in the rewards is what we do in a commune. There is no efficiency in capitalism or communism as they are expressed today. They are mere forms of government and economics designed to protect the wealthy and keep the rest of the people subjugated and impoverished; sustaining the false belief in forms of superiority that have no real meaning. If you can imagine the end of all the world’s military efforts, you will see that our resources are way too plentiful to be exhausted when used to sustain the highest standard of living for everyone.

Let it be known that there are other planets and places in the universe. We are bound to Earth only by our own ignorance, and our “leaders,” those who do not actually lead but control. We can access resources of apparent infinite quantities by freeing ourselves. Stop the waste. Observe and notice the way we are wasting and feverishly working to exhaust everything perpetuating arcane systems that serve only destruction. Become a person who can imagine a better way and start making it happen.

Please Comment



I am thinking about putting an article on this site that may interest you. I have not completed it yet. I am just wondering if it can work and if anyone would be interested. Here is the premise.

We do not really know most of what we think. Our feelings are something we have little understanding of when, in fact, they are instilled in us. We are like robots programed to act, to think, and to feel. Whereas, we can become our own persons. We can rise above the “programming.” We can break the trance, so to speak. I think we must do this!

I am convinced this is the case with almost everyone. What do you think?

Post To Users



 

 

More and more people are signing up to be a “user” of the site. Please pardon the word. I didn’t start it. I appreciate you all. Please spread the word.

 

Life has kept me away from writing lately. Society requires most of us to labor intensively all our lives just to keep from going under. I didn’t start that either. When I can, I will write more. Meanwhile, the words form in my mind and heart awaiting the opportunity to be put to the keyboard.

 

It is vital that we the people realize the power we have. We are the majority. We need only unite in a common cause to make things as we would have them. Differences can be what they will, that is fine. It is the common causes that none are independent of that we can rally around. Our basic needs and desires are very similar. Resist the divisive forces that seek to keep us from coming together. Discover them. Show others. People who become aware become immune.

 

If we will, we can make life on Earth so much better it defies description.

Common Interests



I saw a movie again yesterday that has a speech that appealed to me and fits my cause. It is called, “Independence Day.” If you haven’t seen it, it is an alien invasion movie. The president makes a speech just before the heroes take off to save the world. It is a well done speech. He mentioned putting away our petty differences and uniting in our common interests. That is the issue that must be fully grasped by mankind. We have far more interest in common than we have that are opposed. All we need is a plan to fulfill our common interests while allowing our differences to be without causing problems. It is actually quite easy.

We need a plan. If you had the power to change the world, what would you make it? Would you make it so that the common interests of everyone are met? Some would not! Almost everyone would! Here is the basis of a beginning.

As time permits this site will reveal such a plan. It is not my plan. It is just “a” plan. Better plans are welcome and sought.
