It's always spectacular to visit, in my head obviously, and unfortunately, a future that I deem achievable. A future where human beings start to become responsible for things irrespective of the law of man. It's amusing that that is exactly what happens today, the law of man exists, yet it is broken and therefore needs to be enforced. This gives rise to police and army's using things that sting, go bang, go thud, go tzzzzzzz when struck with them by some level of officer of the law of man when protests are martialled.
It's a hell of a response to a disagreement. Our police and/or our army standing against us because we have collectively asked questions and are now at the point where we are demanding answers. The most prominent being what's happening in Ferguson at the moment. Why are people so angry? No doubt the media have trotted out the race card, the anti-police card, the politically motivated card etc... there are SO MANY reasons and excuses for defending the position that you take. Shit if you're a police officer. Shit if you're a family member. Shit if you're a politician. That people have to take to the streets in order to get their answers is a poor reflection on our authorities.
Only I can give authority. It's the primary reason that I've never voted. I do not give my consent to an authority that imposes its will by using force and coercion. If you vote, then you do and you get the society that you vote for. It's an indefensible position, yet it is a position that is defended using violence by the very authority we have voted into place. Oh irony. However it's an irony that we've all known for a considerable length of time. The actions of some throughout history show that the fight against authority has been fought. It's nothing new. This give credence to the idea of us never having been anything other than an Oligarchy. Irrespective, the fight between authority and who it is suppose to represent is centuries old, at least.
Will that battle of authority and "terrorists". Protesters, terrorists? Pffft, there is no other word for how protest is viewed by authority given the way it is responded to. First it is met with violence. Then it is met with a ban hammer from the law of man. All the time there's propaganda and conspiracy to obfuscate the truth. Does anyone really believe that there is some form of paper trail that will hang those who are in charge? If it exists then it's there to keep the puppet in place. It's a dark theory, I know, but I'm finding it harder to discredit by the day. Protesters becoming "Terrorists" is merely a definition away.
So why is our authority using violence to halt protest? No doubt the main reason will be economic reasons. Well if the workers aren't working, money will be lost, potential damage to buildings, transport disruption etc... People are saying to their governments that they have issues with certain ways of life that have been created en masse enough to cause people to join together and raise a united voice. The only reason for using force, is because you no longer wish to listen to those raising their voice and want them to shut up. Bit rude I reckon. Has it been forgotten that that authority is actually our representation?
Mind you, it takes two to forget. And given the violent retort to protest, I'd say that it hasn't been forgotten at all. It may be that I've just started to notice, but have we learned anything from history that has been beneficial to society? "All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh-water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?", switch History for Roman and tip your hat to Monty Python. We've all forgotten our core role in society. The law of man has replaced morality.
The law of man puts the economy before man and planet. Yes it's slightly more complicated than that, but hey, the economy is put before man and planet in just about every field of endeavour. Political bullshit facades aside, I think that this is currently evidenced by the outcomes of current global policy. We're not protesting because we're hard wired to protest, there are very valid reasons and concerns that need to be highlighted to those with the "authority" to change things. Alas, they seem to busy maintaining an economic system that's driving us ever towards collapse. Collapse may not happen for years yet, but it will happen. I'd rather we avoided that.
So what other methods of communication are open to the public when it comes to communicating a message to our "representatives"? Well, I think starting to talk seriously about a Resource Based Economy would send a clear message of that which we would like addressed. After all, most of the issues we face today will be obliterated into the past under an R.B.E. The thing is, YOU have to start talking about it. I have no doubt that this conversation will be on everyone's lips at some point in the near future, as more and more people are becoming aware of what a Resource Based Economy is and there will be a steady rise of "political" parties around the globe as money or desire permits.
Don't be afraid of having the conversation, you're a visionary. Anything goes as an answer to a question about a Resource Based Economy. As long as you can think about AN answer that removes a particular problem, then consider how many more of you there are out here ;-). At least one of us must have a solution that pales the current system into significance? Could it be that between all of us we could create a system that is perfect for our immediate needs? My money is on a resounding YES in answer to that question. I'm pretty damned sure that your model of a Resource Based Economy would be equally as successful as mine, or Zeitgeist, or The Venus Project, or Ubuntu, or The Money Free Party etc... I'm quite confident of that, because the benefits of a Resource Based Economy demand that we cooperate in order to be flexible enough to adapt as our immediate "environment" changes.
Authority is using a big stick to maintain the status quo. That's how much thought they're giving to the economy and lives of people around the world. It's not hard to work out. What is hard, is to start having that conversation. We have to aim towards a Resource Based Economy, because our authorities aren't. Democracy and the financial systems can be used in order to live in a Resource Based Economy. If you control the value that is attributed to human activity, then you can accomplish anything. All of those systems are in place. All it needs is the political will to change the landscape.
Start the conversation.
A "Begging" Letter.
Everything takes money. Raising awareness is no different. To that end, if you have excess funds and you would like to invest in a project with the potential to change the world, then come and say hi.
The above may sound like madness or the ramblings of a person suffering from delusions of grandeur, but I assure you that I am quite serious. Someone has to be about the future. I have a plan. It may not be a good plan, but that is for you to decide. Come to my house, drink wine and let me offer you a vision and a plan of how we get there. You will be an integral part of NOW helping to shape our future. If nothing else, you will have had a wasted journey and I will have less wine.
Change happening by itself is too slow. It needs a helping hand.
We do not need to be stuck with Einstein's theory of insanity! There is a Silver Bullet! and it is EASY to change our society quickly and with next to no consequences, in fact the positives by far outweigh the negatives!
A wee challenge for you. Can you think of a single reason why our financial system is better than a NOW approach for humanity. Be honest and open minded, but I think you'll find out that there isn't. NOW (or variations of) is/are required NOW more than ever. We live in a finite world, why continue to waste it?
"There is no Silver Bullet". I've heard that from professionals, experts, leaders etc... NOW they're either really really wrong or they're lying through their teeth. Again, take a look around you and ask if this is the best we can do?
I disagree with those professionals, experts and leaders who say that there is no silver Bullet and I'll make 3 very bold statements that would have them laughing in the aisles:
- There is a Silver Bullet!
- It is EASY to solve many of the major issues that the world faces!
- NOW offers positives that our current societal and economic models can't even come close to offering!
With the above 3 very bold statements in mind, I give you NOW
