Day 392: Charity, Scavengers and a Living Income Guaranteed

On the topic the Daily Mail wrote yesterday

Retailers are being warned to lock their bins after growing gangs of scavengers have been caught rooting through rubbish to grab discarded items they can sell or eat.

Groups have been secretly filmed rifling through refuse in Gloucester for the last two months, stealing furniture, clothes and food on a weekly basis.

Footage shows how they take it in turns to go through industrial dustbins for anything of worth and in the last few weeks have salvaged food scraps, computer monitors, and even a video player.

But they have been warned they could face up to seven years in prison for theft if they are caught in the act.


Is there something obviously wrong with this article, like for example the attempt to criminalize people who are taking out stuff from RUBBISH BINS which are meant to dispose of things some no longer want?


How far are we pushing the I’Deal of Private Property, to the rubbish point? What about the ashes resulting from the burnt trash of each one of us, why are they not given back to us if they are still our property? Why isn’t anyone complaining about that, why is it ok that the incinerators appropriate themselves of our rubbish but not people who are in no position to buy stuff they or their families need or in the position to feed themselves?


Aren’t we spending public money in the millions for recycling but we resent and condemn recycling that comes for free – what is wrong with us – really?


Not to mention a Charity Shop that said:


Charity shops were quick to defend the way they handle their waste.

James Preece, area retail manager for YMCA, said: ‘The bins in the photographs do not belong to our YMCA shop. We keep our bins securely locked up during the week and they are only put out on collection days.’

Why is that?
Do we need to give Charity out in an accounted way so we can justify the existence and value of the Business of Charity?
I think we should be ashamed that we have people in such condition and that in no way we can claim that rubbish is ‘private property’ that can award up to seven years of jail time, if I trash something it means I no longer want it or need it and I have disposed of it, now it’s public property, have the trash collectors complained that their trash is diminished? Who is this harming if not our sense of social justice that has long gone down the drain?
I am really aghast at this news, if we are so petty as to want to hold on to our trash, we must have reached the limit of how low we will go to exclude others from some relief, others who may be, wrongly so, too ashamed to walk into a Charity shop and ask for a hand out and rather look into the rubbish bin to have a sense of having ‘found’ what they need, having participated in bettering their situation vs accepting to be given in ‘Charity’ what should be given to all as a Human Right – a Dignified Life.
It’s time we rethink this world which is the obvious result of some serious damaged mental processes we all have been participating with, we have a Proposal, it’s called a #livingincomeguaranteed, because Life should be guaranteed to All as Equal shareholders of this Planet and the Right to Live, it can’t be earned or hoped for, it has to be a given, this will heal some of the wrongdoings we have done, like having people result to scavenging into rubbish bins that we plan to keep locked away -while we decide if it’s viable to send them to prison for 7 years – because they try to have themselves a Life, just as we do thanks to the Money that circulates in our world due to our social, geographical, ethnic or hereditary position -and take for granted.
Participate, read about it, share it with others, giving a Life to All will result in a better world for everyone involved and that is by no means a Small Thing.

Capital-Lie-ism – The Lies We Tell Each Other

wrong side of capitalism

 

The point of us not even realizing it is more astonishing than anything that has been going on since we were born. The rights of the people have diminished, all social bumpers have or are disappearing, and we find that even the middle class, or aspiring middle class is seeing some ‘not-so-common sense’ in reducing the benefits for the People. Are they not The People too, are we not All -the People of this Planet?

 

Given the current state of Human Nature, the ones opposing a system change must either be on the receiving end of this system of abuse or hoping to get there, and this applies to many who call themselves educated too, they fail to see where their Education came from and if we attempt to expose the system to support everyone to wake up, at best we are called Conspiracy Theorists, at worse, Utopians, for wanting to change the system to a system that would benefit All.

 

So, lets try to debunk some of the lies of Capitalism we tell each other, we’ll take just a few for the purpose of stimulating the desire for others to investigate what is going on and to wake up to the point that their dream of making it to the top, it’s just that, another DREAM sold by the system to guarantee that the HOPE of personal gain will keep them pacified, aspiring for those upper places in the pecking order of this World.

 

The first big Lie we live is the delusion of Freedom and Democracy within a system where some, who have piled up all the resources, write the Laws by influencing parliament to promote and vote in the direction they want to stir the whole game, they bought out the Justice System, but even better, they saw the chance to go directly at the source of their problems, so they could affect the Legislative process which should be meant to be designed keeping All in mind and what the needs of most, especially the underprivileged by design, are.

And we are not talking big benefits, we could just start with the basic human right to Life, which at the moment is denied to those that cannot access resources through this MEAN we have invented, Money as the middle man that gives access to vital resources such as water, food, shelter and then the resources to guarantee to be able to access this MEAN to Vital resources, such as Education, Health care and generally speaking, a system of support, not to “the Scum of the Earth” as it seems to come out from all the talks of the rich who feel they are always in peril of being overtaxed in support of the “lazy poor”, but to the people from which we are in fact stealing, to those to whom the equal share of this planet bounty has never been given. Most of the greatest wealth is built on the backs of workers who are not even retributed enough to make it comfortably to the end of the month. It is important that they are not, paramount, because when they can’t make it we can sell them something else, DEBT, what a GREAT idea, and they won’t be able to refuse the offer, because DEBT has become what our economy runs on, we have created a CULTure of debt and lack for most but the few that sit on top.

 

The second most damaging Lie we live, is the Lie that all those who are born in this world have Equal opportunities to make it to the top through their dedication and hard work.

This should be a point not even worthy of debating, because believing such things is a blatant show of out-of-touch-ness with the world, and therefore we have to look at WHY we believe the unbelievable, there must be some pay back in our beliefs that would stop us from seeing the world for what it is.

One thing I can say from my own experience as a Love and Lighter, is that when I did not want to hear about poverty and famine and how hard some had it, the basic force was Fear, it was the fear that I would have to face the truth that something was terribly wrong in this world and that if I allowed myself to uncover the first BIG lie, it would have been an unstoppable domino effect and my castle of cards would have come tumbling down forever, and that was not an option I was willing to even consider.

But looking behind the fear there was another motivating force, and that was Self Interest, because if I did acknowledge that something was terribly wrong with this world and with what we were doing it would be like knowing your husband is cheating, then you have to make a decision, you can’t keep pretending everything is fine, you are called to stand somewhere on the issue of Injustice and this world of Abuse, but if I didn’t look and told myself stories about this system, one of which was that we all have equal chances, I could keep the cheating husband and the lifestyle I had and just go on pretending that everything was just dandy.

 

The third lie that we tell each other  is the trickle down lie, the assumption that if we make the rich on top richer, the wealth will trickle down. This is obviously another lie spread by the Rich, but it’s not a New Lie, it has been going on for the last 50 years if not more, and yet all the numbers prove that not only that didn’t happen, but the situation for those at the bottom has become worse. Yes, because as the riches piled up on top, the scoundrels had more Money to splurge to bend the system, write Laws in their favour and basically dis-empower the bottom line of the ones that were now reduced to blatant slavery, to the inability of even conceiving standing up, as they were deliberately forced down with anything that came to Mind, Fear of losing their jobs, homes, health care, freedom of choice (AS IF they ever had any) and last cherry on the cake, fear of Terrorist attacks, setting up a Terror Alert System to be able to turn up and down the Fear levels inside people on command. That we should concede, was a Master Stroke.

 So, as we moved into this well designed and planned FEAR World, we lost any power to stand up and say enough is enough, not that this is true, but we Perceive it this way, we perceive the whole game has become too big for us to be able to change it, to be able to research independently what is going on in the world and assess by ourselves, without any outside help what is going on and what needs to be done.

 

We are writing a solution to a New World, we are proposing to redesign a Capitalism that works for All until we can let go of the Money Construct altogether, it will require the standing up of many Beyond Fear, beyond the Complacency of making do with a system that is downright abusive and basically, just plain crazy, where we consume finite resources as if they were infinite and then dispose of the garbage we produce in all corners of the world, considering oceans, rivers, the land, the air, our personal rugs under which we seem to think we can sweep all the crap we don’t want to face until further notice, while we are not even clear which notice should be issued, and by whom, if we are planning to give each other a wake up call, or if the planet will have to just throw us out as the parasites we have become.

 Reconsider your views of the current system, the game is rigged, give up all Hopes that you may sit enthroned up with the Big Guys, that Club is on invitation only and we have not been invited, but we can design a World for All, where all Human beings of Good Will are welcome to join to stop what we have become and create a world that effectively works for All, without Poverty, Famine, Crime, Pollution of all our resources, and all the other consequences we have created and are busy creating by upholding this system of Profit vs Life, a World we can be proud to call Our Home.

The End of the World is given 1:5000. Wanna Bet?

Today I watched the news to make extra sure the World did not End somewhere far away from where I live, or that it ended while I was sleeping and I was the only one left with just the TV. Imagine that as a scary thing.

But it didn’t, I am still here, we are all still here. None of the prophecies came through, no one ascended, moved to another dimension, embraced new frequency and vibrations, it’s just business as usual.

On the news they said that people have been gambling on The End of the World, it seemed such an amazing opportunity since they gave The End of the World 5000 to 1, meaning with 1 Euro one could make 5000.

I just want to touch briefly on our celebrated Intelligence and how the point that we are out of touch with reality is visible everywhere we look.

We went betting on the End of the World, great investment, imagine if it did pay out, what a blast. So how come those who went gambling didn’t ask themselves WHO would pay up their bets if the world ended or would it matter if the only other guy surviving was the bookmaker, which would be extraordinary per se, both the gambler and the bookmaker surviving the End of the World, but if that was the case and I could make 50000 Euro by betting 10, where would I spend it?

This is the perfect example to highlight how Money has become such a blinding driving force while we don’t realize that it’s value exists only by The Power given to it by The People; on a desert island one could print Money and it would mean nothing, even in a small community, if I invented something called A Bank and printed Money, unless the People I want to sell this idea to- bought it, they would still be just worthless pieces of paper.

We have created an economic system to which we abdicated our responsibility for this world, where the power of the people has been given away to Puppet Governments and Banks to print and circulate Money. This is not very intelligent as we can see how we ended up in a system where now we believe that Money is real and it has power over us, plus we have excluded ourselves from any decision making about what we do with the Money that is circulating, hence WE the People are funding Wars, slavery, occupation of countries, murders, famine, poverty, as every piece of Money that circulates carries our own individual power with it, we are The Governors of this system, the only missing thing to prove it is our signatures on the Banknotes, but no one has an interest in making this TOO obvious, not even ourselves.

We didn’t get here in one day, it took centuries to build this belief about Money and the fact that it holds power over our Lives, unfortunately as we kept believing it and living this truth, desiring to accumulate this Power to Live, over Life, above the Power or Capacity of others to have their fair share, we ended up turning this world into Hell for All.

Let’s say as a gross understatement that we made a miss-take along the way, the biggest was born out of our separation from existence as a whole and all the others followed as we didn’t realize that wanting for myself and not for others Equally would lead to all sorts of problems which we have duly manifested, such as Poverty, Inequality, Famine, Starvation, Violence, Murder, Torture, because as we went along and we entrenched ourselves into our ‘make beliefs’ ideas about this experience called Life, we upped the stakes and we became willing to do more and more atrocious things just to guarantee that “I’ would make it, that “I’ would be safe and now we have reached the End of The Game, this Game is over, we can clearly see that betting on the End of the World would mean that “I” should be the One to survive while the world ends -fuck the world-, do I care? Nope, I care about winning this game, down to the last man -I’ll kill the bookeeper myself once he has paid off- as I live my personal “Highlander” tale in my Mind, “Only One will be left”, and by God, I Hope, wish, desire, want that One to be me. I’ll bet on it.

Short on Intelligence, that would be the smallest lack to acknowledge as  it’s everywhere for us to see, look at our economics system which was meant (was it?) to be a system for the Fair distribution of resources, look at how we use Fossil Fuels as if there was no tomorrow at how we exploit third world countries’ resources hoping no one will notice and that we’ll get away with it, look at how we came to believe some Lives are worth more than others, so much for our intelligence, but along the way we lost it all, decency, compassion, the ability to ask ourselves if we could swap places with another, if it would be fine, bearable, to live the life of any other, or if we need to redesign this world into a place that works for all so that Each Life can express itself beyond fear and grief and sorrow – and guilt and shame.

The world did not end, some lost a few Euros on this bet, too bad, can’t fathom their disappointment, but they stand as the example of how far we have gone in our desires, way too far, it’s time to self correct and remind ourselves that no man is an island, and we are 7 billion humans sharing One planet with many other species, many of which we have already decimated- and we have only this one planet, for a little while more, we can look at what we have become and ask ourselves if this is the best we can do OR, if we can see that another world is possible, where everyone thrives, then we have to stand for THAT Change, it won’t come by itself, just like the End of the World, we’ll be the cause of one or the other, The End of it All or the Rebirth of a Planet where Life is Honored and we truly care for Each Other as Equals, as One.

What will it be? Who will we be? We are the Ones that decide.

Take your stand for a Dignified Life for All @ Equal Money.
