Day 367: A Criminal World and its Money Buffer

When we live comfortably within the Money Buffer that this world provides, we may have the luxury to not realize that this is a Criminal World. We are stuck together in a nightmarish existence of survival and fear, we are just at different degrees of ‘nightmares’, which are determined by the amount of Money we have access to on a daily basis.

I am not saying this world is Criminal in judgement, just matter-of-factly, it is indisputable that a world that doesn’t provide for all, deliberately, is Criminal, a world where Life is on sale, where those that can’t access the World systems are left on the side to starve and die while we insist that this system should be kept in place because ‘is the only one we have’ is Criminal (and so dumb) in its very nature.

The fact that Crime exists on a small and on a huge scale should concern us, not in fear, but as a prompting to question the validity of a system that doesn’t leave any choice to some, but to commit ‘crimes’, to be able to sustain themselves.

I grew up in a neighborhood with a high crime rate, yet, due to my privileged money position, thanks to the hard work of my mother who was born within a range of choices that made that possible, I didn’t have to resort to crime to live, to be able to eat or bring home food for my family.

In my neighborhood there were drug dealers, arm dealers and generally violent, vicious people -you can’t have a soft heart in a criminal environment-. I enjoyed mixing with them for the thrill of living next to outlaws, next to the tough ones that allowed me to hang around and listen to their street vernacular, it was a fascinating departure from the comfortable life of proper education, grammar and sentence construction that I lived at home.

Life is sweeter when you have the choice of crossing the line but some are not born with this choice, some are born in poverty, without access to an education and the games are decided early in life, our words, the richness of our vocabulary will show quite early where we will end up, the people in my neighborhood were thugs born into a life of crime and they had no particular motivation to make a different choice because they understood that, ultimately, what counted was the ability to enter the Money system one way or another and lacking ‘another’ way to even consider, they would settle for what they knew, for what was handed down to them by their family, a Criminal Future.

Many times as we attempt to expose the nature of this world, some naively insist that ‘if you work hard, pay your dues, behave well and treat others decently -you can have a good life’.

There is a mixture of different brainwashing in those affirmations, some are religious, some are cultural, we are now attempting to live out this ideologies and are crashing to the ground as we discover that behaving ‘well’ can’t apply to this system at all times and that paying your dues when your dues are being funneled to the top to feed just a few is not viable and that working hard in a world of unemployment is a delusion and therefore we are starting our inevitable descent into Reality and the layers of this world from which we have been exempted so far,  thanks to the Money God, the Buffer of this existence through which we can claim that all is well and that it’s all about insisting, keep seeking a job, don’t give up hope, tomorrow is another day.

And yet this ‘Rossella O’Hara- Gone with the Wind‘ attitude has not, ever, given provable – beyond reasonable doubt, measurable results.

As Money becomes scarce within a system where it is designed to flow to just the top, the ones at the bottom may have to start reconsidering crime, not as a choice, but as the only available option left to them. Crime is NOT a choice in a criminal world, but it may become the ultimate solution for those that have NO CHOICE left, because CHOICES are bought with Money and those that kept up the denial because they could afford it, won’t be able to afford it anymore and so we are in for a rise in criminal behavior, we should have seen coming but we couldn’t, because we were trapped in ‘beliefs’ about the nature of this world vs the truth of it.
We were trapped into the idea that ‘the criminals’ were committing crimes because they chose an easy life vs going to work, we kept up these stories even in the face of the fact that living on the side of what is considered ‘legal’ is NOT an easy life by any standard, we’ll have time now to reconsider this idea in real life and see what are we made of, how many lines we are willing to push further to make a living and how easy it is to justify what we do and call it ‘business’ or ‘economics’ without a care for the consequence of our deeds on others.

Those of us who have not yet committed ‘crimes’ to live, were able to do so because we lived above the Poverty-Crime Line, there is no merit at all, we just lucked out.

I wish that we could wake up to the reality of Money, those that have none are very awake, they know that Money is the mean through which this existence moves, they know because they are paralyzed physically and mentally, without money there is no movement, there is no access to opportunities to enter the world systems, there is no chance for an education or to cultivate a land that is ‘owned’ by those who have the money, without money there is pain, sickness, worry, there is the denial of a dignified Life, there is the denial of the choice of morality, there is the denial of the buffer that allows those with Money to take a distance from the horrifying things we have done and keep doing in the name of Profit -and Money.

So, for today I wish to share this specific point, let’s get honest about Money, if we can all see that Money is what we live for, what we have based our relationships on, what has allowed us to distance ourselves from lives we don’t wish to live and have the guts to stand in judgement of, because in truth we do get it that Money is The Key out to what would otherwise be a life without choices and opportunities, then we have a chance to redefine this existence, to decide that the Divinity we seek is not out there, it’s in our choices and there is no choice more Divine than the one to give Life – to All, because no one is worth less than another and until we use the Mean we have used to enslave each other to claim the Equality of the Worth of Each Life, we can’t even claim to be Alive.

A living income guaranteed for All can change the nature of this world, we could fix it inside-out but we are too lost to see that what is manifesting outside is existing inside all of us, then let’s do it the other way around, let’s fix it outside-in, we can change the environment that contributes to creating who we are and have become and watch this world step up to what it could have always been, a place of support where we can live in peace where each one can exist to Experience and Express Life in this physical world.

Life is Given to All for Free – let’s stick to this example of how things were supposed to be.

A living income guaranteed for All – because Life is all we have – for Real.

Day 359: Please STOP ‘Paying Respect’ to the Dead

Horror: Rescuers pause to pay their respects to the 13 victims of the tragedy

This is not the first time in recent months that illegal migrants making the desperate journey to Italy have drowned on the way.

Sicily and the islands surrounding are hotspots for illegal immigrants arriving by sea from Tunisia, Libya and sub-Saharan Africa hoping for a better quality of life and employment.

Recently, following continued violence in the country, a growing number of Syrian immigrants have fled to the region hoping for protection from the raging civil war.

Often the immigrant’s desperate journey ends in tragedy.

Last month six migrants died after they jumped out of a boat off the coast of Sicily.

Some 100 migrants where aboard a boat when it hit a sandbank close to the shore.

Six perished as they tried to swim to land.

In July seven drowned after they tried to hold onto a fishing cage which was being towed to shore off the coast of Sicily.


This is not the first time I write about this boating shame, where people, who attempt to leave their troubled impoverished countries, board ‘make believe’ boats hoping to make it to a better place, hoping to secure a life for themselves.

I have touched upon this many times and I would have skipped the article if it were not for the caption under the picture that states

Horror: Rescuers pause to pay their respects to the 13 victims of the tragedy’

I found this caption appalling for a few reasons, the words I want to discuss, in order are ‘Horror’ and ‘Victims of the Tragedy’ because we need to see through the words we use to stop what is going on, we can’t take responsibility for something that we treat like a ‘natural disaster’ and we must stop to treat such occurrences like a natural disaster because they are not ‘natural’ but far from it, they are man-made, avoidable circumstances that we can change, that we can address and prevent, so WHY Dont’ WE?

People are living their countries due to their miserable, unbearable conditions, I live in the entry point to Europe, Italy, we have set up special task teams to tackle ‘this problem’, rescuers that should confine those that touch land to specific places until their papers are sorted out. I won’t even talk about this because there is no way anyone who comes in without documents can get themselves effectively ‘sorted out’, that is not why we have those segregation points, we want to keep them at bay, away from the rest of the civilized society of which we are a part – apparently to make sure they don’t take anything from us. Anything of value of course, things we believe we are the only ones entitled to, like a job, food, a place to live, like a Life.

All the miserable conditions of North African and the Middle Eastern Countries exist due to this insane Global economic system, many countries are being exploited and mined for resources or have become the targets of nonsensical wars in the name of Freedom and Democracy or both.

But whose Freedom and whose Democracy is the world worried about? It must not be the one of the people coming from these abused countries, they have no freedom nor democracy, they did not vote to be exploited and what is left of their freedom, is the freedom to attempt to leave behind their lives -or die trying.

The Horror is not that those people died, many die everyday at sea and we never hear about them, many will die, many have died and yet the Horror we say we  feel lasts just the time to ‘Pay our respects to the Dead’.
That’s quite Horrific.

What does this even mean? How do we respect the Dead?
Say a Little Prayer?
Ask God to watch out for them in the AfterLife?
WHY are we not considering respecting the Living, how are we not considering to turn this Horror into an opportunity for Change?

It is quite amazing to see the worship of the Dead in the face of what we do -and seem keen to keep doing- to the Living.

So, I have a humble suggestion to make, instead of Paying Our Respect to the Dead – which is as useful as praying and as pointless as being horrified, why don’t we pay a Living Income Guaranteed to All?

Why don’t we make Life the thing we pay Our Respect to,  yes, changes will be required, paying our Respect to Life will mean a full-time job, we won’t be able to get away with a little ‘pause’ for respect to Life, because to turn this world into a Guaranteed Living for All we have work to do, pausing is what we have done so far, we have been pausing while we waited for an external, supernatural, alien solution and it ain’t coming, isn’t this clear by now?

So, there is no purpose or any sense in the deification of Death while we poo-poo Life away, a system change in the direction of Life was never written, it’s not written yet but it’s in the making, Stand up to give Authority to it, Authorize a different world by no longer supporting this one with its lies and embellishment of what we are doing that is wasting Life away, while we call the people we murder -within a system that is perfectly correctable- ‘victims of tragedy’, which they are in a way, they are victims of the Tragedy of our unwillingness to stand up for a Change that will benefit All, but this too can be corrected, this too can change, we can change, turn our back to the ‘respect for death’ to embrace the Respect for Life as a Human Right, the basic indisputable and non negotiable Right of every living Being.

Join us @ Living Income Guaranteed (#LIG), the Solution Exists, if you are not part of it – you are still part of the problem. Wake Up.
