I have been looking at this point regarding my repulsion for Politics and why myself and all the people I have been talking to would rather not get involved in politics or even talk about it, I have done a bit of investigation to be able to see what are my/our perceptions and ideas about it that end up keeping us away from the only tool that could in fact change the world to what we say we want and wish it to become.
I have to start with my own personal experience of politics, because I know nothing else, I was born and raised in Italy where we have 4 languages, informal, formal, political language and legal language.
For the last 2 we need interpreters and specialized people to translate what it is meant by a policy or a Law, because the language of politics and of the Law is in fact not designed to be understood by everyone, when I grew up I ended up believing this to be ‘normal’, it was customary to watch politicians on TV talk about stuff we could not understand, never being able to hear a ‘YES” or ‘NO’ answer because everything was always like the oddest relationship choice on Facebook ‘it’s complicated’.
The Truth of the matter is that it is actually NOT complicated, it’s made complicated so we may all come to believe that politics is something out of our reach, that it belongs to the ‘politically gifted’, the diplomats, who are able to make us believe something that we know it’s not true, so basically we have been rewarding the gift of the magical speech, the one that keeps all enthralled and spellbound to promises of changes that never come true.
Here I am going to list the most used words in politics, who by the way have no foundation in the reality applied by the elected once they get elected, these words are the equivalent of Abracadabra and Avada Kadavra, the latest Harry Potter’s version of the same, meaning “Murders Opponent” which in fact it does, as the only hearing these words leaves us dead on the floor unable to see through the lies and the emptiness of what is proposed, here they come : FREEDOM, CHANGE, CHOICE, JUSTICE, FAIR, FAIRNESS, HONESTY, RIGHTS, LOVE (this is a heavy-duty one, used only sparingly for maximum effect), check within yourself and you will see, you have automatically responded positively to every single one of this prompting. These words exist within ourselves as passwords, they unlock our good feelings of ‘Hope” and desires for “solutions” that we dream about ‘hoping’ someone else will get to work and realize them on our behalf.
So, I have discovered I was prompted by my cultural upbringing and later on by my own ideas of what politics is and ultimately my judgements of it as bad and ineffective kept me away from politics, it was incomprehensible, unattainable, despised (by myself and the ones who have come to believe they will never be able to access it in any way whatsoever) and ultimately useless.
So, due to my own (induced by the system and accepted and allowed by myself) judgements of politics I have cut myself out from the political arena, I have given up my right to say that this world as it is, it’s absolutely unacceptable, instead, I, together with many others, have taken the opposition role, we take to the streets, we demonstrate, we shout and scream, set ourselves on fire, shoot ourselves and others for a political agenda that cannot be heard because politics happens in the place where we have decided we don’t want to go, inside the political arena, where policy agendas are written and voted, where the weight of the majority rules and can overthrow the existing status quo.
So, we need to review our perception of politics, here are a few examples of things WE DO NOT KNOW ABOUT politics:
If we got together and proposed a new Public Policy with enough people to make it the majority of people, which means half of the people present + 1 this is what would happen:
Public policy is authoritative. It means that the government has the authority to formulate and implement the policy. Authority implies legitimacy, and capacity or power. The government, therefore, has the general permission of the electorate as well as the means of implementing the policies. Thus, it also has the authority to enforce adherence to the policies. For example, if legislation has been passed by Parliament, it can be enforced by the executive and civil service, such as the police. (Botha and Kotze 2003:6)
Public policy (domestic policies) is mostly concerned with the allocation of resources. It determines how resources are distributed in society. Therefore, it means that decisions are made to determine priorities. Under democratic conditions, it also implies that procedures are used to determine how the allocations will be made and that those procedures are transparent and open to groups outside the public sector to be used. In non-democratic situations it is confined to the public sector. (Botha and Kotze 2003:6)
Public policy is always limited by the scarcity of resources. It means that there are always more needs in society than the resources available to address them. Because of the scarcity, public policy is about determining priorities and about how best to achieve the policy goals of the party/government with the limited resources. It implies that policies should be evaluated or assessed to determine how successful they were in terms of achieving the policy goals. Policy analysis is therefore an integral part of public policy planning and evaluation. (Botha and Kotze 2003:7)
Thomas R Dye: Public policy is whatever governments choose to do or not to do. (Botha and Kotze 2003:7)
James E Anderson (1984:3) gives the following definition of policy and public policy: Policy is a “purposive course of action followed by an actor or set of actors in dealing with a problem or matter of concern” and “public policies are those policies developed by governmental bodies and officials’ Anderson (1984:3�5) highlights the following aspect of his description of public policy:
Public policy should be based on law and should be authoritative. Government has the monopoly to legitimately use coercion for the enforcement of its policies. No private organisation has the authority to articulate its policies in the form of legislation or other sources of law. (Botha and Kotze 2003:8)
A state’s ability to take decisions and make policies for itself without external sanctioning or interference is the ultimate indication of a state’s sovereignty. That ability is no longer so absolute and a state’s control over its policies is therefore also curtailed. Tendencies that affect such a limitation are globalisation (especially market liberalisation spearheaded by the World Trade Organisation); increasing influence by social movements, NGOs and businesses in the public sphere; and regionalisation. (Botha and Kotze 2003:10)
So, in plain language, we could draft a public policy about a New Monetary system, an Equal Money System, , bring it forward and have it voted by the majority of the presents + 1, then we would have the right to enforce it on the rest of the ones that are yet still too brainwashed, too confused or in too much fear to see that we have no other solution that will bring about an effective lasting change than to realign to What is Best for All to stop All abuses. No one will be left behind from benefiting from such enforcing, yes it will take some adjusting, some that have been extensively and unrelentingly benefiting from the inequality of the system might kick and scream a little but that is not important or relevant to the fact that a change is needed for What is Best for All and every single one on the planet will be helped to reeducate themselves to come to see this point through dropping our humongous Egos that exists in and as self-interest and correct ourselves into What is Best for All.
So, we suggest to stop the divisions which are planned by the current system to make sure we may never realize where is the Real Power and how to access it, stop Occupying, stop demonstrating, realize that since we are all part of the problem, and hence the problem itself, we can and must be part of the solution.
Politics is not evil, we are, we are the ones that closed our eyes to what was going on, so we can start our correction by standing up and seeing that this change requires DOING and not opposing the doing of others which is what we do when we demonstrate and sit in and as an imaginary opposition stance without an agenda for real Change.
Bernard Poolman said : The brainwashing of potential voters into a form of conspiracy madness play into the hand of the elite. It is in the elites interest to fund such groups to capture and direct the young minds and make sure they never get to politics and as they get older, they will give up and work at Walmart for survival
Get it ?
This is how we have given up our lives to the system, so we now stop conspiracy theories to prove it’s others doing something wrong and not us NOT doing what is right and what is best for all, instead we start to educate ourselves about Politics, what will entail to draft a Public Policy and bring it forward, what will it mean for each one of us to become prospect members of the new system we are drafting, how we are planning to give up our own greed, competition and self interest for What is Best for All and then under this one principle we Unite and make it Happen.
Equal Money is ready, the solution is Here, it just needs us to spread it and be the solution itself to start changing the system from inside, as each piece as One and Equal, goes through its own personal realignment to Oneness and Equality until the change has and will be manifested outside into the All Giving Equal Money System, because when we stop the for-getting we can start the for-giving to All, One and Equal to Life itself and everything that is Here.
