Day 453: How to Stop Creating Corruption and Criminals

 

I live in Italy, unfortunately -I wish to add.

For many years I felt this country like a suffocating weight I had to carry, a cage of rules and laws that made even breathing difficult and sometimes I wonder how do we keep our sanity, ah yes, we don’t so much lately, we have people committing suicides at an unprecedented rate, an austerity that doesn’t allow many to get to the end of the month, a church that says its duty is not to care for the poor but to evangelize and give sacraments BUT we have the freedom of porn, cheap high street fashion and soccer. Yeahy to that.

It makes for a grim picture for the future of our young ones, especially when the eldest insist that ‘at their times, because they tried harder, they would always find a job. Bullocks.
Those were other times, another world, other opportunities.

We have 1000 small enterprises closing each day, actually those were the number in 2013, now some say it’s 1600, which is commendable on a 69.000.000 inhabitants figure.

Last night I watched a political show that talked about how difficult it is to have a company in Italy, to be an entrepreneur, which is odd if you think that entrepreneurship in a country suffocated by unemployment should be encouraged in any possible ways, instead we keep legislating, we keep creating laws, commas, addendums, restrictions to the movement of our unparalleled ingenuity born out of sheer survival.
This can explain why Italians do so well abroad, anything we face abroad is EASY compared to what we have to face at home, you lift the weight and we float effortlessly.

In this talk-show a woman said that she moved to Cambridge to follow her daughter and she discovered that the employment office actually works! She was helped to write a CV and to find a job, which she did in no time, it is in the interest of any community to have employed people in a world where our living is tied into working, is it not?

Instead in Italy we are firing people from Government positions by the truckload, citing this system-created austerity on steroids, now people who go on strike are fired on the spot, we are witnessing the removal of the basic working class rights to state that we do not agree with exploitation, the new rule is either you accept to be exploited or you are jobless – and jobless in Italy means going to the church for warm meals and a shelter, which is granted on a first come first served basis.

The woman who moved to Cambridge said she will die there and wants to be buried there because Italy gave her nothing, never, not even when her spouse died and she was hunted down for her debts that she asked to put on hold until she got back on her feet. She said she must have been born in Italy by mistake, so have I, I thought many times.

The point that really left me flabbergasted watching this talk show was when they moved on to the proven relationships between Laws and Corruption – and found out that the higher the number of Laws in a country the higher the corruption, the lack of transparency, the dysfunction.

The comparison made was again between England and Italy, we rank 69 in the Corruption Perception Chart and jolly come in after Rwanda, Namibia and Ghana, England ranks 14.
A professor at Cambridge, an Italian who had lived there for 25 years, said that it is now proven that the more a Government acts in distrust of their citizens, the more it is reciprocated in kind, so, as the government burdens us with useless laws, rules and regulation that it’s impossible to carry out and live – we cheat, evade taxes and lie, we are just playing out the script written for us by those that don’t even trust themselves (and ain’t them right about it?).

The English Parliament issues 500 new laws a year that make sense, we issue 2000 that don’t, in the UK there are 3000 laws to abide by, in Italy 150.000, to open a hairdresser shop in Italy – 84 bureaucratic steps are required, our taxation equals the one in Denmark but we have no benefits for obliging, so what is the recipe I am describing here? The recipe to create criminals and corruption.

We have more lawyers than the USA, because our laws are cryptic and they have to be interpreted on a case by case basis, they are in fact ad personam laws, where the idea that the law is Equal for everybody is not even contemplated, it would just be too funny to even teach it to children, our justice system is lagging behind a good 10 years at least with commercial proceedings and we are guilty until we can prove that we are not- what kind of citizens can such terrain cultivate?

Liars, cheaters, tax evaders and ultimately criminals (and proud to be) mostly because we can’t even understand what we are supposed to do, many young ones that have managed to secure an European grant for a project left Italy and took their project elsewhere because they became exhausted with the never-ending idiotic bureaucratic requests, such as providing documents dated 2 centuries ago that no longer exist to prove the original structure of an old property, or other oddities of the kind.

The Law has been created for the purpose of protecting private interests and in Italy we have expanded this definition from private properties to the private interests of Notaries, solicitors, barristers, public employees, politicians, many wheels that need oiling to move the machine to make things happen and that oiling translates in Money and hence into Corruption and into Injustice because if you don’t have the Money to move the wheel, you are stuck, your ideas, your potential contribution to a better society is worthless without the bribe required to make it real.
The more mazes of laws to unravel, the more opportunities for corruption.

So, to sort out our corruption we need lean, just Legal systems whose laws are clearly understood and applied to all indiscriminately, we need a social contract, we need to create a state that trusts that the members of an Equal society do their best to comply, if they make it possible, because we all agree that social interactions need to be regulated for a functional society, look at what Chavez did by printing the Constitution on packets of flours and rice, he involved the population in their rights and not only in their duties, we need to build a new state of mind that creates a new State of Being that works for all and not just for the elected that manage the system to the detriment of everyone else.

We could revert the legal system to just 1 Law: Don’t do to others what you don’t want done to you – imagine this, the simplicity of it, anyone standing for something that doesn’t support the Life of All, the life of another like his own – will have to take a leave from public office, which at the moment would leave the Italian Parliament empty but that is not a dire alternative to what we are living at the moment, if that happened we could restructure the system putting the wellbeing of everyone on the same line – if a wage cut is applied indiscriminately to all, there will be no wage cuts, if healthcare coverage is given to all or taken away from the privileged one, we’ll have national health coverage.

Unfortunately, by design, we don’t have TIME to rethink this world and this is another reason why we need a Living Income Guaranteed, many are purposefully enslaved from 9 to 5 if not longer, on a daily basis to earn a Living that should be granted to All, many don’t have the time, the strength, the clarity to ponder about the state of our world and the things that really need to be sorted out, we need TIME, a living income guarantee is FREE Time, a free Life with no strings attached in exchange for active participation, it will give us that buffer to take a breath, to come out of the mud in which we have been buried and buried ourselves to look around and decide – is this the world I want to live in?

Because if it’s not, we can stand together and change it, we are the majority, the users of the system that never thought they are already the Administrators through the choices they make on a daily basis, the market force, what gives value to the money system, we are IT, if we get this we can change the way things are working now and start administering the wealth of the world differently, better, including all parts and all needs equally, a Living Income Guaranteed is our chance to better ourselves, to become the people we thought we could be when we were young and idealists, it’s not too late, it just requires for us to come together and agree on the changes that will have to be implemented to change the world and make it an honorable, Life supporting place, For All.

Some pettiness will have to be given up in the process, some honesty is required to see how we have carelessly -but equally- participated so far, our MEMEME mentality will have to make space to move little ME into a big WE, this could start with a Life Giving Proposal that includes all -as equally worthy of it.

Living Income Guaranteed – not a dream, not a hype, it’s a Plan – check it out.

Day 452: The Ebola Trojan Horse to Liberia

It’s in the news, the US is sending additional troops to Liberia (and Sierra Leone) hoping to ‘turn the tide’ of the Ebola virus.

Makes sense, armed people can shoot a virus off the face of Liberia, for sure they have now  miniaturized intelligent weapons that will do what weapons have been designed for, save lives.

We could see this news as hopeful, if we tried really hard, in the sense that manufacturing consent for wars is becoming increasingly difficult for those at the top and so we now outright lie to get the required consent to invade a nation by claiming we go there to save them from a deadly virus.

Good news too that we are dropping the ‘bringing Freedom and Democracy’ rhetoric, some, up there, understand those lies are now too hard to sell and so opt for a ‘humanitarian intervention’ excuse – who would have the heart to say NO to saving lives? Now we just have to wait for the soldiers to come back and tell how it really was down there and to watch them return some more medals to those that hired them, called them gentlemen and sent them to fight the latest war for resources. We have a predictable future ahead of us.

Once we start to understand the deceptive nature of our world though, it is not hard to keep ourselves informed, you can check the Ebola spreading map and match it with the map of the resources up for grabbing, what a surprise, today I just had to Google ‘Liberia and Oil’ to find some interesting articles, I will report a piece of one from Modern Ghana

 

Liberian oil and the Looting of Africa
The looting of African oil has begun in Grand Style, this time not in Nigeria nor Ghana but right in Liberia, also located in the West African region. For a country which has remained one of Africa’s poorest for decades, many were those who heaved a deep sigh of relief when Liberia recently announced to have “discovered” oil in commercial quantities, joining her West African sisters: Ghana, Nigeria and some others.

Click for Full Size
Oil deposits in the West African coast has existed for decades

In my opinion, there is no “discovery” of oil anywhere in West Africa but the exploitation of the oil belt that runs along the coast of the entire region which the oil executives knew about for decades but did not care to build rigs till now as they tried to gain control over the unstable situations of the Middle East at that time.

According to a recent statement issued by the Nobel Peace Prize winner, President Ellen Johnson, the American Oil company, Exxon Mobil will own a whooping 80% of the oil shares discovered in Liberia, while their Canadian neighbours, the Canadian Oversea Petroleum Limited (COPL), will own 20%. Therefore many are wondering: where does this place the people of Liberia? What percentage share does the government of Liberia have in this oil deal? The African people would want to know.

Although President Ellen Johnson has not said what would happen to the Liberian share, the President and CEO of the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL), Dr. Randolph McClain, explained that the negotiating team of the Liberian government secured a 5% citizens participation share in LB-13 and a further 5% royalty on oil produced from wells drilled under water depths of 0–1500 meters.

Angered by the shocking news, Okechuku, a PhD student at Oxford University wondered:

“When Liberia was in crisis, did the US and Canada send any help? I’m shocked at how a country’s wealth is being giving away for peanuts. Is this the reason why the president was awarded the Nobel Prize some months ago? Ellen Johnson has always been the World Bank’s darling girl anyway. You don’t get a Nobel Peace Award without signing such deals.”

So we could be trying to get into Liberia for this reason or for Palm Oil landgrabbing as stated in this article

Communities protest that UK’s Equatorial Palm Oil is poised to seize land in Liberia

24th June 2014

The UK-listed company, Equatorial Palm Oil (EPO), which is threatening to seize land owned by Liberians in defiance of commitments by Liberia’s President, will today receive a visit from affected communities. Members of the Jogbahn Clan, together with representatives from Liberian and international NGOs, will deliver a petition with over 90,000 signatures, reminding EPO that it does not have community consent to expand onto their lands, and that doing so could escalate violence. [1] EPO’s past operations in Liberia have triggered allegations of conflict and human rights abuses. The company has maintained that any expansion is legal. [2]

Residents from the Jogbahn Clan in Liberia’s Grand Bassa County say that EPO has begun demarcating blocks of land in preparation for clearing, and have accused its security officers of threatening community members. These actions defy the March commitment by Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf that EPO could not expand onto the lands of the Joghban Clan without their permission. [4] The right of Liberian communities such as the Joghban Clan to give or withhold consent to projects that could have an impact on their land and resources is also provided under international human rights law, as well as the Principles and Criteria of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) of which EPO is a member. [5] The Joghban people have refused to give such consent.  

EPO has a very poor track record in Grand Bassa County. In September of last year, officers from the EPO security team and the Liberian Police reportedly worked together to assault and beat Joghban community members who were peacefully protesting the company’s operations. Those arrested were soon released after it was determined by the government’s Grand Bassa attorney that there was no justification for continued detention. No government investigation report regarding this incident has been made public. [6]

EPO denied any involvement in the violence, saying that it had been “falsely accused”, and does not “condone or encourage such described behaviour,” and “never instructed or directed any of its staff or PSU officers to intimidate Jogbahn community members in September or at any time.” However, EPO admitted to Global Witness that it provided logistical support to the Liberian police who are accused of intimidating villagers on the plantation.

 

Whatever the reason you can be sure it’s not what we are told. History has a weird way to repeat itself, you can watch the documentary ‘Empire’ to see how we have already played all this out in the past.

We really need to work on a direct democratical system, without paying attention to the Government designed failed attempts at it, such as for the Movement 5 Star in Italy, which ended up proving exactly the opposite of what they claimed to want, a direct democratic system, while showing everyone how ludicrous the idea is when only 60000 of their 9 million voters at best engaged with it at any given time.

Direct democracy is not impossible, getting involved in politics is not useless, exposing the truth of what goes on in the world is not worthless because this is how we are growing into an educated force that is awake and alive and that claims a sovereignty that is not demanded but for which we are actively engaging the system, structuring ourselves into an undeniable force -against all odds.

We were the one letting our sovereignty go by -manufactured- consent, we can’t demand some to give it back, we have to become the sovereigns, the rulers, straight enough to decide what is worth supporting and what must cease in this world as a reflection of our own individual changes, we cease the wars, the lies, the victimization and then decide what must be done from here forward.

Then it will not be possible to have Trojan horses such as this one go unnoticed, you can’t fool those that participate actively in the system whether their participation is recognized or not yet, Real Democracy is Participation, a time is coming when we will be enough to rewrite the rules of engagement in accordance to who we have become, so the solution is in the becoming those that can’t be fooled, not by ourselves nor by others, about what goes on and why and what needs to be changed to align this world to principles that make life possible and worth living for all.

Check out a Living Income Guaranteed – that is one step in the direction of our sovereignty and the end of all the excuses about why it’s ok to do to others what we wouldn’t want done to us.

Day 451: The Best Healthcare? Only possible with a Living Income Guaranteed

 

I would like to talk about the 3rd leading cause of Death in the United states, Iatrogenic Disease, also known as ‘medical malpractice’ and the state of our Healthcare system, taking the USA as a -bad- example.

Here some extracts from articles about it:

Medical Mistakes Often UnreportedDetroit News

Based on a recent report by the Institute of Medicine, which estimates 36 error-related hospital deaths per 100,000 people, 3,534 Michiganians died last year due to medical mistakes.

Patients reported 2,027 complaints about health care organizations to the state, but Tom Lindsay, director of the Michigan Bureau of Health Services, said those likely represent just a fraction of the mistakes.

Medical MistakesNew York Times

The NEW YORK TIMES reported that 5% of people admitted to hospitals, or about 1.8 million people per year, in the U.S. pick up an infection while there. Such infections are called “iatrogenic” — meaning “induced by a physician,” or, more loosely, “caused by medical care.”

Iatrogenic infections are directly responsible for 20,000 deaths among hospital patients in the U.S. each year, and they contribute to an additional 70,000 deaths, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control CDC). The dollar cost of iatrogenic infections is $4.5 billion, according to the CDC.

National Patient Safety Foundation

A new poll from the nonprofit National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF) finds that 42 percent of people say they’ve been affected by physician errors, either directly or through a friend or relative.

If the survey of roughly 1,500 people accurately represents the general public, it could mean that more than 100 million Americans have experience with medical mistakes.

More alarming, according to the survey, is the fact that in one out of three cases the error permanently harmed the patient’s health.

Dr. Leape is a board member of the NPSF, which was founded by the American Medical Association in June of this year to improve health care safety.

AMA leaders say it’s time to bring the issue out into the open, rather than living in constant fear that any admission of error will launch a flood of malpractice lawsuits.

Leape’s own research has shown that the tally of medical mistakes made each year could reach 3 million, with total costs as high as $200 billion.

The survey found that 40 percent of the people who had experienced a medical mistake pointed to misdiagnoses and wrong treatments as the problem. Medication errors accounted for 28 percent of mistakes.

And 22 percent of respondents reported slip-ups during medical procedures.

Half of the errors occurred in hospitals, and 22 percent in doctors’ offices.

“It’s really a joke to worry about the occasional plane that goes down when we have thousands of people who are killed in hospitals every year.” Brook’s recognition of the extent of hospital errors is shared by many of medicine’s leaders.

Care — not treatment — is the answer. Drugs, surgery and hospitals become increasingly dangerous for chronic disease cases. Facilitating the God-given healing capacity by improving the diet, exercise, and lifestyle is the key.

Effective interventions for the underlying emotional and spiritual wounding behind most chronic disease is critical for the reinvention of our medical paradigm. These numbers suggest that reinvention of our medical paradigm is called for.

I would like to say that not all doctors are butchers, in Italy, a candid repented Mafia man exposed the story of when he sat at university as a ‘professor’ to grant some a degree in medicine as a favour to their families, my guess would be those would not make the best physicians having hardly seen a biology book in their lives, but there are many dedicated doctors who understand and embrace the principle of ‘do no harm’ -which given the statistics would be a good start- and who really want to make a difference in people’s lives.

Often times these doctors find themselves in the impossible position against big systems and corporations, unable to move out of accepted medical para-dimes for profit, feeling trapped and discontented with the system the way it is and unable to change it, unable to step out of it and even unable to expose it, in fear for their survival.

Take Homeopathy for example, the medicines are very cheap, highly affordable, I have been reading blogs of Indian homeopaths that cure people in the Mac Giver’s fashion, testing simple remedies and maximizing what they have to alleviate suffering, exchanging ideas, treatments, creating effective webs of support for those that can’t even afford to be killed by traditional medicine. All this without moving money.

And what do we do with them? We deride them, we call them insane, tell them about their ‘sweet pill’ that will not solve anything, we publish articles to denigrate their studies and turn them into nutcases, dismissing our chances to understand more about our personalities and the role they play in our health – did you know for example that some people with multiple personalities disorder had severe allergies to a specific food only when ‘embodying’ one specific personality and not others? This alone should make us rethink the way we approach healthcare, aren’t we all ‘multiple personality’ people?
We could humble ourselves for once and admit the truth, which is that we know little about how the body works holistically and we need all the help we can find to work it out.

Take this Wikipedia reference to Homeopathy for disinformation

Continued homeopathic practice, despite the evidence that it does not work, has been criticized as unethical because it increases the suffering of patients by discouraging the use of real medicine, with the World Health Organisation warning against using homeopathy to try to treat severe diseases such as HIV and malaria. The continued practice, despite a lack of evidence of efficacy, has led to homeopathy being characterized within the scientific and medical communities as nonsense, quackery, or a sham.

The British House of Commons Science and Technology Committee has stated: “In our view, the systematic reviews and meta-analyses conclusively demonstrate that homeopathic products perform no better than placebos. The Government shares our interpretation of the evidence.

I have actually had exceptional personal experiences with Homeopathy, so not only I cannot support this claim about its inefficacy but I want to point out that statements like these only expose the system we have created, a profit-making machine with no concern for life and the well-being of all.

Hasn’t the establishment’ been trying to treat HIV unsuccessfully for decades? SO why don’t we find this mentioned or iatrogenic disease, as the third leading cause of death in the USA alone, under ‘Medicine’?

Why don’t we find information about the Queen of England and other Royals using Homeopathy - is she dumb? Uninformed? Didn’t she get the memo from the house of Lords about Homeopathy NOT performing better than placebos? Mysteries of the world we live in.

While I read many many pages on homeopathy to understand better its principles  I found a very telling quote that I wish to share

Usually in homeopathy one gets cases that have “tried everything else”. One of the contributory factors to the problem is the demand by the public that unpleasant discharges of whatever nature are immediately suppressed. Antibiotics do this, but as Prof. J.T.Kent points out on p909 of his lectures

“… The great mischief done by allopaths is due to the fact that they want to cover up everything that is in the economy.
They act as if ashamed of everything in the human race: whereas homeopathy endeavors to reveal everything in the human race and to antidote those drugs that cover up, and to free those diseases that are held down. It is true that many patients will not have homeopathy because they do not want the evidences of their indiscretion brought to light, but homeopathy endeavors to do that. Conditions that are in the economy will come out under proper homeopathic treatment.

There you go, the Secret about Why homeopathy is not even wanted to be considered in an unbiased way, not even considering the remarkable success on the cases that Allopathic medicine could not treat.

To be succesful in treating someone with homeopathy, a lot of very personal details are collected, one’s relationship to oneself, to one own’s mind, to others, to sexuality, dreams, food preferences, sleep patterns, it takes a degree of self honesty to be able to bring everything to the table to seek for a remedy because homeopathic remedies are specific, truly detailed archetypes of our personalities at play – and some are very nasty, who wants to say ‘yes, I am like that at the moment’?

So, the reason why homeopathy has not performed as well as it could have in our testing, rests in one of our greatest mistakes, our lack of self honesty, our lack of accountability for who we have become so much so that we would miss out on the opportunity for physical support if able to keep the masks on. Who wants to say ‘yes I am selfish, jealous, have dreams of killing people or raping them?’ Who wants to be ‘that kind of person’ – even when they are?

Incidentally, as I looked through hundreds of remedy I stumbled on the ‘Personality’ of one of my clients, it was astonishing and humbling to read, it made me realize that I had judged her as not wanting to ‘snap out of it’ when in fact some of our personalities really end up becoming pathological, the person no longer has the capacity to snap out of what has been created and embodied through time, hence, when we are tempted to judge someone we should stop and remind ourselves there are so many layers to this existence we are not aware of and that many diseases are just patterns playing out – it would help to see we are not dealing with evil people  but with evil patterns handed down from GENErations to GENEration – that are now embodied in people, in all of us.

To be able to rewrite our healthcare system in a way that considers more layers of what a ‘healthy human’ should function like, we need the freedom to do so.

For sure homeopathy will not hold all answers, nor is allopathic medicine completely dumb and yet we will never know what works best unless we un-link medicine from profit-making and return it to a noble practice of CARE first and foremost.

In this a Living Income Guaranteed will be our greatest ally, many would make different choices if they could, if we didn’t fault everything that we can’t see how to monetize, like homeopathy, we would be better off for that, we could take the best out of each practice and we could guarantee that our doctors, those truly devoted to the well-being of others, would have the freedom to move, to choose, to expose what doesn’t work and drive it to a solution, because their lives wouldn’t be on the line and that is when our expansion into taking care of others take place. We have to move our doctors beyond survival to reap the benefits of their abilities, their unbiased studies and concern for humanity.

If you have been looking at ways to change out healthcare system, consider a #livingincomeguaranteed, we could guarantee that each doctor has their life given back, free of charges, guaranteed, and we give ourselves and each other a life as a given, not as a struggle or as a debt or as a bond, then fixing the nuts and bolts of the matter will be an easy task that we can accomplish in one lifetime.

Join the discussion, share, care, let’s rethink this world to make it work for all.
It’s possible and it’s up to us to decide if we want to support Life or Death – in between there is nothing left.

Day 448: Wars and Famine are Human Ritual Sacrifices

The emergence of news about ritual abuses and human sacrifices has a shock factor that still gets our attention.

We can’t say the same for the ritual abuses and human sacrifices that we have ‘normalized’ in our world – we are hardly moved by pictures of hungry children in Africa or by wars, overexposure to these news made them normal and exposes the way we handle what we do to keep the world the way it is, take our Hollywood movies, if one shocking truth comes out about anything, we make a movie about it – think ‘Blood Diamonds’ or ‘Promised Land’ movies in which we tell each other ‘the way things are’. Sometime, like in the case of ‘Promised Land’ we tell the story even including how corporations get away with any potential obstacle by impersonating both sides of the fight, there, we exposed it, my guess is that we do this because we can then believe ‘we know what is going on for real, we are not stupid’, enjoy our contained moment of shock and dismal and then gladly go back to sleep.

Someone said that ‘Masses pay the ruling class for the privilege of the very entertainments that helps to keep them under the laughing gas’, and it is absolutely true, imagine the ingenuity, have your slaves pay to be enslaved, what a cunning, brilliant plan.

Here an interesting extract on human sacrifices from an article by Acharya S., a classically trained archaeologist, historian, mythologist and linguist, as well as a member of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Greece, and the associate director of the Institute for Historical Accuracy.

‘It is also purported that such sacrifices by any number of priesthoods, transcending race and creed, continue to this day in secret sites of the elite. Some members of this elite group, which includes both Jews and Gentiles, allegedly will bring about the destruction of the Muslim “Dome on the Rock” in Jerusalem so “the Jews” can reestablish the Temple for sacrificial rites (ostensibly of animals), an act that would certainly cause major turmoil in the Middle East if not the entire planet. There have in fact been several recent attempts to blow up the Dome, some of which were funded by Jewish/Christian organizations in the U.S.

War Itself is Human Sacrifice
This all raises the question of whether or not war itself is considered a sacrificial rite by the elite, who, along with their families, frequently escape such deadly rituals. The ranks of the “old money” elite are composed of robber-barons and third-party weapons manufacturers who both finance and reap the benefits of war. This “business,” in fact, is how they became elite in the first place, with the first tribal chieftain invading another’s territories, killing the inhabitants and stealing their land.

When one studies all the world’s entanglements, it becomes obvious that human beings must stop allowing themselves to be programmed with racist and sexist ideologies – and religions are numero uno offenders in that regard: Anti-woman and anti-everyone else who is not “like us.” These “unbelievers” and “infidels,” in fact, are to be condescendingly pitied, hated and/or killed. Those who believe “our way” are superior to those who do not, according to the pathology.

And so it goes on and on without respite from the ear-splitting, insane cacophony. When will humankind evolve? As American actor Gene Kelly said in the movie Inherit the Wind: “Darwin was wrong. Man’s still an ape. His creed’s still a totem pole. When he first achieved the upright position, he took a look at the stars, and thought they were something to eat. When he couldn’t reach them, he decided they were groceries belonging to a bigger creature. That’s how Jehovah was born.”

And so the story goes that there is nothing new under the sun, Human Sacrifices were performed all throughout history for power and wealth and to appease Gods that seem even more insane than the ones we became accustomed to worship, our Mind Control has led us to a blindness that doesn’t allow us to see the obvious, if wars are preventable events, if they are uneconomical – bar for a bunch of people who manage to even make money on them-, if we have the means and understanding to see where some imperialistic behaviors can lead, why don’t we give them up, why don’t we change, why do we accept someone else’s definition of Crime and do not extend it to senseless wars, to predictable famine, what is the cognitive dissonance that stands in our way from doing so?

What if the disclosure of human sacrifices we so fear when we hear about them as a singular, odd event, were part  of our mind control programs, the diversion for the vast, huge amounts of human sacrifices happening every day to thousands  of beings around the world that we no longer see or hear and whose suffering has become ‘normality’ justified by their prolonged, never ending/never so far ended, existence and by our dumb, never questioned, acceptance?

If you have been worried about Ritual Abuses, Human Sacrifices and Mind Control and you have never considered Wars and Famine as Ritual Abuses and Human Sacrifices, You Are Mind Controlled.

We have justified and turned famine into a side effect of a system we are led to believe it’s the best we can get for a freedom and a democracy we have never even seen with a telescope, and have turned wars into honorable happenstances that churn out dead heroes and medals for posterity, we have invested state sanctioned homicides as Wars with a character of justice and courage, qualities we want to participate with because we are mostly unjust and cowards but in a group, who knows, we might be redeemed.

Have we been and are we still ruled by superstitious, TheMented, capricious, psychopaths that have found ways to mass produce ritual sacrifices for magick invocations of wealth ?

Not that this should come as a shock, what we see outside goes on in each one of us, we each hold some superstitious belief about the world, our own petty rituals, call it religion or magical thinking or both, we are capricious about the way we want the Economy to run to satisfy our wants in the face of the unmet needs of many, willing to sacrifice others at the altar of our own wealth and success and we are ultimately all psychopaths for not recognizing the suffering of others as our own, the lives lost in wars and famine for what they are, the horrific loss of brothers and sisters of our Human Family and of priceless human potential, it’s time to seek solutions to end the sacrificial nature of this world and our participation within it, once and for all.

There is one way for us to break free, we can come together to break the spell we have cast on each other, ending the sacrifices of every living being on the planet by recognizing the nature of what we have accepted and allowed with our silent, manufactured consent and decide, together, on a different path.

We can decide that it is Life that must be guaranteed to all, and not death, death is a given on this planet while Life is not yet, and that is weird to say the least, we have come up with plenty absurd justifications about why it is so that we have invested with Authority and called Law, Economics, Monetary Policies, Politics, but guess what, we were told as well that war made sense, that famine was unavoidable in such a big world, all big fat lies that we can stop supporting and living as Truths if we decide to do so.

The Life of All living beings must be supported, honoured, guaranteed – not taken for no reason other than our mental ill-nesses that we have ritualized and sanctified, only Supporting Life for All will end our senseless lives of sacrifices and the horrific life taking,  whatever is the name of the sacrifice we have bought into, austerity, bonds, debts, usury, prostitution, famine, lack, wars, the list is long, let’s stop coming up with new ideas about how to abuse and sacrifice each other so we put an end to Ritual Abuses and Human Sacrifices that we never saw before as such, once and for all.

Join the discussion for a Living Income Guaranteed, let’s step out of our sacrificial mind-set, make this proposal and what it means your own, share it, spell it, breathe Life into it, your Life, for yourself and everyone else, Equal and One.

Day 447: The Ultimate System FailSafe, Knowledge and LIG

What I have noticed about when I learn a new thing is a tendency, no more, a habit to draw connections and relationships between the knowledge I already hold and the new knowledge and then to use this new consolidated platform to filter everything else I read about the subject.

In this way of learning there are many shortcomings, the one I want to talk about today is how, when we have existing knowledge about anything, we can’t really hear or value anything new for what it is, unless it fits within the frame of reference that we hold dear, that defines us, as our current knowledge and belief systems of ‘how things are’.

We can find many new people out there talking new knowledge as if there is anything as such- or even those that have done the painstaking work of assembling the old knowledge into one flow, take for example the documentary Secrets in Plain Sight, I have really enjoyed it, one point though that I saw was that the guy, being himself an engineer/architect, could only see through the eyes of an engineer in the specific but not the overall, all-encompassing, picture of what has been going on and is still going on in this world.

This is why our knowledge is not common, meaning, we don’t share the same knowledge with others on almost anything, each one of us has gone out in the world, taken what they learnt in small or big doses and then, invariably, super-imposed it to what they already knew, either looking for missing pieces or for a flow that made sense just about to them and the few friends they would end up sharing it with, invariably, sadly, attempting to make others look at the world within the same limiting frames of reference, however wide they may be.

After a few years debunking my mind and my deceit-full mind stands, now any ‘new’ knowledge mostly makes me question some point or another, specifically when the information has been pulled and stretched to match an already existing knowledge or belief system. But this happens equally to apparently New Information, to the point that I go into ‘can’t compute’ mode unless all the parameters of what I have learnt about a specific system are satisfied by an answer that keeps everything I know neatly in place -with the small, reassuring, addition of new information. Why would that be so?

It seems that, whatever new thing I learn, whatever new proposal I hear, there must be a sorting and sifting into the baggage (of) knowledge I already carry and only when I find the perfect fit, I can take in on board. But what if everything I originally took on board was wrong, designed to shape this world into our minds not as it is, making sure that we would not be able to see some ludicrous systemic mistakes we keep making or the consequences that result from our inability to reach out for new information, moving ourselves out of our own boxes of what we understand reality to be, seeking for solutions that we have never considered before – can we take that kind of leap into the new?

All the Corporations and Systems who are currently holding this world hostage to ‘the way things are and have always been’ have worked always for the consolidation of information that confirms and ‘proves’ that things can’t change and if anything we have been left a very tiny window of opportunity, of movement, to change the way things work, and that window becomes smaller – and not wider – with the more knowledge we hold, change becomes like shooting the apple on William Tell head, if we miss the target someone will die, we’ll die, our survival is always threatened by a system we allow to exist to bite us in the ass – and – we become limited to trying to target just that one apple to set ourselves free, rejecting any other new way to approach the world enclosed as we are within the walls we have ourselves built with the knowledge and information that ended up defining us.
Of course, this Knowledge and information was sought attempting to make sense of it all, of this schizoid world  we were born into that never made sense from the start, there is no way that we could justify poverty and starvation, violence, wars and abuse, especially to the levels we have come to normalize today, unless we attempted to explain it away with knowledge and information, using that as the buffer that allows us to breathe and absolves us from our own responsibility, our own ability to stand together for something new, for real change, BEYOND what we have ever known and done before or what anyone else has done before that led us all here where we are today.

When attempting to over-educate ourselves it would always be wise to question whose information we are taking on board, no one has the full picture of anything, no matter what they believe and therefore we don’t know what we are bringing on board to hold dear next and given that our critical thinking still has training wheels, it’s important to not be seduced by knowledge as another form of ‘power’, as another way we can become superior to others because ‘we know more’, see more, understand more (or believe so) and maybe consider – what if everything that I hold as truth is in fact my own limitation and the cage I am longing to break free from?

We have a proposal to test our Freedom of Movement in our Minds, it’s called a Living Income Guaranteed, it’s a proposal that states that every human being has an undeniable, inalienable right to Life, some may now think ‘oh but we know that’, yes, that is the point, we just know it, we don’t live that as a commitment to each other but just as ethical, hypothetical, knowledge, so much so that we can’t even see that at the moment in the world it is NOT in fact so at all, that without money people die, that many are alienated into lives of misery, that money has become our MEANS to decide who gets to access the world resources and who doesn’t and so, while we hold the knowledge of Human Rights, we haven’t noticed that we have just the title of the file but the file is EMPTY, we have not collectively defined what Human Rights are and what we want to see upheld in the world that works for everyone, that gives access to the Life everyone has a right to, by birth, and made it REAL, yet, but we can do so.

So, consider our proposal, talk about it with your friends, open up the point of what kind of world you would like to live in, don’t accept the current structure of knowledge and information to limit you to take a leap from where we are to where we want to be, once our vision for a world of support of each other, a world where Life becomes the Capital, of which everyone holds a piece, is clearly set, then the pebbles to fill the road to walk on, from where we are to our vision, can be set by all, each one of us holds a piece, we are the key to change, let’s not be limited by the narrow window that is left over once we have con-summed all the knowledge some have laid out for us to prove that, nothing can ever change if not in the way they decided and left for us to move to change – which if we look carefully, given the nature of this world, should have some pretty fucking amazing failsafe in place anyway, it’s easier to guard fiercely one door, one narrow opening alone left to change, if we become convinced that it is through that opening alone that we can walk out from where we are into something new, yes? What if it wasn’t, what if we rejected the current structure for something new what if we defaulted the imaginary contracts we have subscribed to as ‘the way things are’ and went another way, not even bothering to try to get out of them by the clauses someone said we signed up for -without our knowledge but simply, withdrawing our consent to place it somewhere else? What stops us from doing so?

Then beat the unbeaten path in your mind with a Living Income Guaranteed, it has never existed before so no one has had the time yet to screw with it.
Join the vision, add yourself to the equation needed to make it real, make this vision yours, a world that works for all, until it’s done.

Day 445: The Elite is not The Enemy but our Wake Up Call to Global Change

 

Today I got an email from a friend that shared a link about an organization called The Re-set that supports

A constitutional re-set to re-store fair principles, accountability, community led governance and ethics.

I couldn’t help but notice how my email Inbox has changed in the last 5 years, I went from news about suggested self-serving intangible changes like positive thinking and energetics and conspiracy theories to receiving most of my emails about people rising up and getting involved to seek solutions that are real, physical and that consider that Life on this planet must be taken into account in everything we do, if we want real sustainable change.

I still get the occasional bullshit and fear based news and some pretence system-smoke-mirrors about change that don’t involve any specific participation but an electronic signature but, definitely, what I have noticed is a diminishment of our delusions and the realization that we need to come together to agree on new principles to manage Life on this planet.

And who do we have to thank for this if not the Elite? If the limited money in the world had not been sucked all the way up to the top, we would all still be living our comfortable, sheltered lives totally oblivious to the suffering of others.

Maybe we have to understand our Equality through suffering, just like we have always done, because we are not yet mature enough to evaluate solutions without being pushed by desperation into seeking them. But we can learn that even that is not necessary nor required.

So, for once, I would like to write The Elite, the 1%, a Thank You note for this wake up call, maybe many of them didn’t intend this to happen, maybe those at the top are just as shortsighted as the ones at the bottom, a fact that could explain why so much damage at a global scale keeps going on, as the more powerful, those who have accumulated the most money and have the thickest buffer protecting them from physical reality, may be suffering at the highest degree from our social diseases ranging from full-blown psychopathy to pathological greed, yet they are just grandly showing us the dire consequences of living out our carelessness and disconnection for/from each other and all the other living beings who sharing the planet with us.

If it wasn’t for the lack that we are experiencing at a global scale, many of us wouldn’t find it in themselves to move in support of each other, we would be too careless, too carefree, too uninterested to get involved, to move, to rethink this world to a world that works for all.

We too have a proposal, it’s called A Living Income Guaranteed, it’s designed to ensure that everyone on this planet is taken care of and that they can access a Life of Dignity, so, if you have not yet done so, stand up, be counted, we can reduce the suffering we have to experience before we realize that we have to stop delegating our responsibility for this world and each other to faceless corporations and govern-ments and stand united as self responsible human beings to look for solutions that include All – only this way we’ll end the worsening of this Consequential World we have created and lived into existence to replace it with a World of Support that is truly best for all.

So, within this realization, it’s time to depose our arms/weapons/hatred/blame and stand thankful to those that made and are making our awakening possible, maybe the saying that God, as ourselves, moves in mysterious ways, is more true than we have ever realized.
