This morning I went for breakfast to a Pastry Shop close to where I live, every morning they bake at least 15 different pastries so I had the following choices:
Chocolate croissant, Cream croissant, Pistachio croissant, Apple strudel, Apple Danish, Empty Croissant, jam croissant, Raisins Croissant, Cooked cream croissant, Cream and jam croissant, Chocolate and raisins twist, Cream cheese croissant.
Since I have been questioning reality and the equality principle with Desteni I wondered what kind of choices to match mine would have other countries in the world, so I thought in the USA they have Muffins of all sorts, they have doughnut made famous by policemen in movies :), they have apple cake, in France apple tart, Tarte Tatin, Croissants of all kinds and then I thought what are the choices of Somalia people to match ours, and here they are :
Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing and not even clean water.
Wow, we are taught that on this planet it’s all about ‘free choice’, yes, this is true if you are born in a country that is wealthy, then you will have plenty of choices to indulge from.
But if you happened to be born in a country that has been deliberately kept underdeveloped, like half of the world, really, what choices do you have ? None.
Many of us can relate to the abundance of choices available in our First World Countries, when I lived in Hong Kong going to Starbucks was a headache, latte, cappuccino, big, small, medium, with caramel topping, skimmed milk, cannella powder on top, so many decisions to make just to get a drink, FREE choice.
But if you were born in Somalia, or Congo, or certain areas of India or Korea or Cambodia or the Philippines is your choice as free as the free choice of the rest of the world ?
No, this is why we classify countries as First, Second and third World, by their ability to choose, meaning, by their ability to access the money system.
In the Philippines there is a region called Davao, it was meant to be the ‘Bread Basket of the Philippines’ it was designed for that, meaning it enjoyed special fiscal status on the land so that the farmers that would set out to cultivate there would not be killed by taxes.
But then a First world Country came :), under the name of Dal Monte and Dole, they fund out about the special tax regime of the region, when you have money the world is at your fingertips :), and so they convinced the local farmers to sublet the land, committing their production to be turned into Pineapple production to them. The result of this Corporate Clever Operation resulted in a country starving, the people in Davao took to shooting on the land of the Foreigners and they were called terrorists.
This is what they tell us in the news, Davao is a dangerous region full of rebels and terrorists ! How would you feel if people full of money came and stole your bread to guarantee and supply the demanded and defended FREE CHOICE of the First World Countries ? Would you embrace a gun to protect your children from starving ? Who is designing violence in the hearts of peaceful people like the Filipinos ? Is it our greed? Our unwavering belief and desire for Free Choice? The desire to eat pineapples that don’t even grow in our countries all year round at the cheapest price possible ?
When we look at the world because it seems so vast, we seem unable to see the consequences of what our opinions and beliefs create, we fight for our right to the Free choice we cherish that reduces other countries into abject poverty and misery, and then we change this story to soothe our hearts, so His story becomes History and we tell the tale of the vicious Filipinos who embraced guns in the region of Davao and made it a dangerous place 🙂
But honestly, who are we kidding ?
I was an advocate for Free Choice, I thought everyone had the right to have it, unfortunately reality tells us another story, not His Story, not Our story, just the story of how things really are.
We have designed a system of abuse based on greed and self interest, our right to a Free Choice is putting countries that do not enjoy our same access to the Money System in dire misery, creating undignified and miserable lives for their inhabitants and their children.
Time to give up our right to Free Choice in favour of What is Best for All, then when I will go and pick a pastry at the pastry shop I won’t have to be flooded with images of starving children whose only choice is to hang on to Life without food and water for just another day. And nor will you, we’ll be thinking abou their food of choice, NO FOOD is NOT A CHOICE.
Let’s stand up to change this system of inequality into a system that benefits All Equally, a new system that will change how we perceive the world, what we have allowed and accepted to manifest so far, a system of Equality is already HERE, we just need to look at ourselves One and Equal with everything and everyone that exists and make a decision, lets’ give up Our Right to Free Choice so that the suffering and inequality can stop and everyone may have a dignified Life.
Will You ?
