Are you a believer that all men and women are created equal? Are you a believer in a capitalist, socialist or other kind of society? Do you believe that everyone should be paid a fair wage for the work they do? Do you believe only a few people should have multiple houses, yachts, pieces of jewelry whether they attain it by their own efforts or whether they achieve such by unethical conduct and behavior? Do you believe policies should be enacted that only benefit a few people or corporations? Do you believe that most people should struggle to maintain a decent standard of living while many more struggle just to eat? Are you a believer in the concept that we are all connected and the philosophy behind “We are our brother’s keeper”?
For far too long, we’ve been influenced to think that we should strive, succeed, and progress in life based on our individual effort; that we should pull ourselves up by our own boot straps without assistance from anyone. I tend to disagree with that concept or belief. I believe that we are only as strong as our weakest and that if you have it within your power to help someone, you should. But unfortunately we have unfair systems in place that penalizes people who make mistakes and two of those are our credit reporting agencies and our criminal justice system.
Those with power and money want to create the belief that things are scarce and in short supply when that is not the case. If you believe in abundance like I do, why would there be a need to create money as a system of separation and exchange as it currently is? The answer is simple, to divide and conquer. Think about it! If we have an abundance of energy, raw materials, or whatever we need, why would we benefit from a monetary system? Ask yourself, who benefits from our current monetary system, only a few. The majority are trapped in a perpetual system of organized slavery. Try removing politics and money from our society and see how drastic our lifestyle change for the positive. If we re-directed our energy to improving technology instead of continued petty and divisive differences, we could improve our lives tremendously. Both politics and money are systems that divide people and should be abolished forthwith.
No longer should we support systems that control, divide and enslave as oppose to adding value on numerous fronts. Let us no longer continue being blind to these outdated systems of unfairness that only benefit the rich and powerful. With time comes change and with change comes new ideas and now is the time for both. Together we can make a difference and together we will.
