many people (not the healthy and the rich) have legitimate grievances.

the left blames neoliberal capitalisms and the  deregulation they advocate (it’s called “freedom”), neoliberals (of course) blame the state/government/laws.

so if something goes wrong – nobody wants to take responsibility – but rather just finds some reasons to blame it on someone else (scape goat principle).

you know what REALLY would help?

  1. have your own water well for fresh water (so you do not have to pay Nestle for it)
  2. have your own hectare of furtile land, grow your own food and reuse your own seeds (so you do not have to pay anyone for it, not even Monsanto)
  3. produce your own electricity (so you do not have to pay anyone for it)

who – left, right and neoliberal can NOT agree with those three points?

It enhances peoples freedoms and independence.

And i thought – freedom and independence is what neoliberals want. (hopefully for everybody not only for themselves, that would be selfish and egoistic)

All parties – government – banks – private households should enable and work towards this or get out of the way.

i close with this funny cartoon:

you can also have it in French:

everything lives off a balance:

if things get out of balance – it’s always bad – buildings collapse, nations collapse, ecosystems collapse, the human body collapses if blood is accumulating to massively at one spot or maybe going into areas where there should be no blood at all (brain stroke) leading to death or paralysis.

everything depends on balance

Bernard Lietar once said, our monetary system is prone to failure because it is not an ecosystem of many systems and currencies – but rather for the sake of efficiency (as if efficiency would solve all problems) it becomes highly instable. (no bio diversity)

the whole picture

there are many micro cosmos on this planet – and if you not have never seen and lived at least a hand full of them (you need to at least spend one month in a country/in a micro cosmos to actually understand and “feel” what is it like to live like this) – then you only see a small glimpse of what this world is like – you do not have the full picture – just a section – if you want to understand the world (and hopefully change it to the better) – this section is not enough – otherwise you live in (worst case unsustainable) bubble.

why is sustainability important?

Because unsustainable means: it is going to end.

Even the life of your children.

Freedom/Liberty:

The rich lock themselves away – they are too afraid to share the streets with the poor (and in the worst case rush from one appointment to the next).

At the same time they dream about freedom.

What kind of freedom did they expect to find in this bubble?

consciousness is the compass

It is absolutely paradox and even worse: In the worst case their consciousness is not well trained, hence they are lost without a compass.

They do not even know what makes them truly happy.

There is a meditation (and any true guru will teach this for free) that is about breathing it is called: vipassana and it is exactly for this: to enhance your awareness.

In my humble opinion every human being shall do this for 10min a day one month straight.

Everyone can spare 10min a day. No excuses.

It is rather a question of: are you willing to.

nothing to trade:

the “problem” of the poor is that they have nothing to trade with “the market”.

It could be that they do not know what the market needs or even that the market currently does not need a lot of humans to operate. (machines/robots/software replace human labor)

Someone even said, maybe it is good to have some unemployment because this is free time people can use for something else… well… it’s not so funny if you have to spend this time under a bridge in the winter because you have nothing to trade with the market and the market does not want to give you a home for free.

no child is born and says: “i want to be stupid, poor and dependent on subsidies”

every child wants to develop it’s full potential.

nobody is born and says “i want to become a waiter”

everyone wants to develop one’s full potential and become a rockstar. (of course)

understanding:

In a world where people do not understand or care about the problems of others – is a reckless – ignorant – and (worst of all) unsustainable world – unsustainable means: it is going to end.

that will inevitably lead to violence, uprisings, revolutions and even war.

Fun fact: even the rich – do not want their factories, banks, cars, properties to be leveled.

So let’s come to a solution!

Any government that is not working towards a solution for all – shall step aside.

Do you expect the market will fix this by itself?

I don’t think so – the market is partly an autonomous program that only cares about it’s numbers (profit) at worst it’s a stupid unsustainable game without meaning played by “big boys” that only care about – if they can get their own private jet yacht golf course etc.

Only people that have seen and lived many micro cosmos can understand the problems of mankind and work together with others to fix it before it becomes a catastrophe for all.

The rich are so afraid to sit down at the table with the poor or even walk the streets and in poor shoes for one month.

the rich: I challenge you:

live one year poor. And you will see the world with a different view.

You will understand mankind better.

With rich i mean:

  • people that can not remember when they cleaned their own bathroom the last time (because they pay others to do it)
  • and/or managed to generate (legitimate or illegitimate) claims to charge a someone or some company or institution (state) a certain amount of money per month/year.
    • after all the monetary system is a law system, hence lawyers know how what they can claim and how to generate the claims out of the system.

legitimate grievances and race discrimination:

Actually all the whole race discrimination thing (that leads to hate and violence) – is about unsustainable concepts for survival.

If the Africans could survive sustainable in their country – they will never leave it – because they love their home country just as (usually anyone else) does.

But there is resource discrimination – the wealth from trade of oil of Nigeria is not well distributed – the soil in many countries is so expensive – even if the unemployed would like to “back to farming” they can not – because they can not afford the land – making them completely dependent on insecure jobs and unstable monetary systems.

  • usage of non-renewable resources plays an important role as well:
    • this planet has nice spots and places – fruitful hectares of land (good to grow food) and barren deserts (good for solar power)
    • but not everyone is entitled to use them, you will need land-rights, the right to build a house on the land – everyone needs a house so how can you not allow people to build one?
    • even worse: some of those resources will never come back (oil, gas) they are not renewable – which will create violence and conflict if nations demand on them for survival (to go to work, to generate income).
    • poverty is still the #1 factor for refugees to flee a country and they do in masses to knock down  the doors of western nations where they get into conflict with the poor (mostly white) people already living there (i have witnessed this first hand)
    • a key factor is to enable people to live sustainable lives – not block the development – because of short term financial gains (the worst way to do business really… imho this should be investigated by the secret agencies and people should get seriously jailed for it, it’s a crime against all of mankind)
    • to replace finite resources (like fire wood) with renewable resources (like solar power) e.g. for cooking – how to proliferate the technology to the poor so they will stop chopping down all trees on this planet to cook their meals? (like they have done for centuries… but if they do not change, they risk of getting even poorer by worsening their micro climate (trees produce shade which let’s rain soaked soil stay wet longer, allowing more plants to grow) and degrading the soil by erosion leading to more refugees and human misery.

live long and prosper! Everybody!

… and please, walk in each other’s shoes for one month otherwise the poor will not understand the rich – and the rich will not understand the poor and things escalate very violently.

it does not have to be this way – again and again.

If all sides are dedicated to constructive behavior – we can sit down – talk – solve the problems peaceful instead of being stupid and jumping at each other’s throats.

Not even the rich will want that – because they also do not want their palaces to be leveled by war and burned down by violence or their friends murdered by a mob.

So i urge you: please homo sapiens be sapient (wise) and come up with better solutions – better for everybody – better for the planet – better for mankind.

Don’t stay stupid out of fear!

first of all there is not one form of capitalism and not one form of communism there different “flavors” of the both, where capitalism and communism is the same is marked in orange. (warning, list is by no means complete, feel free to comment)

pros:

  • big individual freedoms (but the NSA is watching you and already calculating your “score”, the Chinese do it in public, the NSA in secret… and if they don’t like you, they might just send you a drone)
  • high innovation (but as companies get bigger and bigger, corruption goes up, innovation and even quality goes down (Microsoft, Apple, BWM are following the path of Nokia and Kodak) often resulting products are useless garbage or even worse: faulty per factory products (they want you to buy more and more instead of less and less, planned obsolescence) whatever sells and people “believe” need to be “cool”)
    • (nobody sleeps in front of Apple-Stores anymore to spend all their money on the latest iPhone XXXXX)
  • in theory – shared responsibility – everyone should take responsibility for his/her own fate/lifes, but in the end everybody only cares about themselves / their wealth / their houses (breeding systematic pathological egoism)
    • a lot of CEOs escape responsibility and thus act irresponsible (they want their 100 Million, no matter how the company is doing or if it will still exist in 3-10 years)
    • most people do know how and why to take responsibility in their own hands
      • responsibility would mean, give them a piece of land and teach them why it is important to take care of it and grow healthy vegetables in for themselves, instead of depending on a monetary system that is monolithic, highly instable/fragile and to buy from food-monopoly of companies, instead of producing your own.
    • most people will not take more responsibility than for themselves (often do not feel responsible even for their own children)

cons:

  • fake elections: you can vote but it does not make any big difference in policy making
    • money influences lawmaking too much
  • concentration of wealth leads to fascism (concentration of undemocratic power) riots and uprisings between “the lazy filthy rich” vs “the lazy super poor without any perspective” (without hope to improvement)
  • privatization and exploitation: the term “privare” is latin and means “to deprive, take, rob” – people that “own too much” land – will be filthy rich even when working nothing – because they tax the not-owners more and more (greed) to the point of collapse (all restaurants close down and move out of town, no restaurant can afford the rent)
    • definition of filthy rich: if you can not remember the last time you cleaned your own bathroom yourself. (because employees will do it for you)
  • treats nature very recklessly
  • unstable (unpredictable bubbles and crashes)
  • insecure (the free market feels not responsible for society, it is up to the individual)
  • unsustainable (in the current form at least)
  • too much competition that starts in childhood
  • mass surveillance of the public (thanks Snowden! no one ever thought this would be possible)
  • corruption
  • science and universities are very much “market driven” means dependent on external money from sponsors (big pharma, big industry) thus studies and research results might be “blatant lies” to sell a product, studies are conducted in a truth-manipulating way – this will and can even stall scientific progress because what “does not pay off” will not be studied
  • healthcare is very expensive – half of the population can not afford it.
  • public school might be free but of bad quality (massively underfunded, budget got destroyed)
  • private school very expensive, 90% can not afford it
  • university very expensive
  • freedom of speech:
    • you can say what you think – but expect every word you say – every word you typed on a phone or in a computer to be recorded by the NSA (your government) and stored forever, analyzed forever and in the worst case – used in a manipulative way against you in court – forever. (Julian Assange, 1984)
    • comedians are allowed to speak truth to power, if it is funny and not insulting their boss (whoever that is, nobody knows)

pros:

  • everyone has a job (even if the way of conducting that job was with outdated technology, low innovation, inefficient, low safety standards)
  • healthcare is free
  • school and education is free
  • money was not the problem
  • no competition
  • science and universities do not need to “earn private money” – do not need to fake studies (except if the result does not please the boss, e.g. boss decision was wrong needs to be reversed): research is actually independent and studies and results should be “more true” (conducted in a non-manipulative way) unless someone tries to please politics and thus fakes progress (well this will not work for long)

cons:

  • fake elections: you can vote – but there are only two parties – if you vote the non-governmental party – that’s it – off to slave labor camp with you
  • not so much individual freedom – the state commands you to study this and that – work at this or that (state owned) company
  • low innovation, because people were not encouraged to think for themselves, innovation was stagnant
  • low variety of buy-able products
  • treats nature pretty much as recklessly as capitalism
  • exploitation: some people that were not fond of the regime were used as slave labor in Gulags (working camps)
  • mass surveillance of the public
  • corruption
  • all responsibility is with the government
    • if the government makes bad decisions the consequences might be very devastating for all society
    • this can be seen as an advantage for people that are good employees but bad CEOs
  • freedom of speech is very limited
    • people have gone to slave labor camps for making a joke about the government
    • while this might be – of course – insulting – it also deprives the system of learning about it’s mistakes early

How society should be:

Dalai-lama: “The meaning of life is to be happy” (in Buddhist terms this means deep inner satisfaction, this can not be bought)

A happy, safe, sustainable society that keeps on learning and developing itself.

  1. allow people to learn:
    • it shall be allowed to think and speak about how society works in order to improve it for everybody.
  2. gap between rich and poor shall be non existing or slim
    • the gap between rich and poor is not so big
    • where the poor get the feeling, if they work hard, they can improve their living standards
  3. sustainability:
    • the way of survival/conducting business shall be in a way that can be passed on to children and grand children
    • respect for the balances of nature, balance in everything is very important a human body that is not in balance will die.
  4. purpose in life:
    • everyone should actually contribute to society as much as he/she can
    • do truly important work that actually matters
    • no bullshit jobs
    • no lazy “stupid” super rich
    • no lazy “paralyzed” depressed super poor
    • no exploitation
  5. sharing and recycling of resources
    • it is outright wrong, that people born in a country can not afford their own land (not a single hectare) how are they supposed to survive?
    • yes resources are finite – but not a single human being “invented” and created the finite resources of this planet (oil, gold, silver) so actually it belongs to everybody
    • it is very important to produce products that last long and the resources consumed can easily be recovered
  6. never consider your concept of society complete
    • if mankind stops learning it will stop existing
    • when it comes to self reflection and learning capitalism and communism have both been pretty stubborn – the first does not want to hear what threatens profits – the second does not want to hear what criticizes governmental decisions (right or wrong).
    • both systems need to think about a constructive freedom of speech way that helps both systems learn and develop further – towards a hopefully better society.
