The following quotes are from this article:
“Some HIV-positive patients in Swaziland are so poor they have resorted to eating cow dung before taking anti-retroviral drugs, Aids activists say.
The drugs do not work on an empty stomach, so patients have to use the dung – mixed with water – instead of food, the activists say.
The shortage of money forced King Mswati, who is sub-Saharan Africa’s last absolute monarch, to cancel his silver jubilee celebrations this year.
He has an estimated personal wealth of $200m (£122m) and each of his 13 wives has a palace paid for by the state, correspondents say.”
What a fuckup.
On the one hand, you’ve got people so poor they have to eat cow shit; on the other, you’ve got King Mswati III.
He has to give up one of his many, many luxuries — canceling his silver jubilee celebrations, which celebrates how he’s now ruled for 25 years, paid for by the people of Swaziland (as are his birthday celebrations) — but he still has his $200 million and his 13 palaces paid for by the state, a possible $10 billion in trust (from his father, the now-dead King Sobhuza II), and who-knows-what else. He is so wealthy and yet he is the one that the state provides for? That’s where the state puts massive amounts of money towards in a place where people are so poor they have to eat cow shit so that they have some type of substance for their HIV drugs to work?
“The king has also been criticised for requesting public money to pay for new palaces, a personal jet and luxury cars. Street protests led him to abandon the aircraft purchase.”[*]
So, now that the “royalty” is having to cut back a bit, what’s being done?
“It has asked neighbouring South Africa for a bailout.”[*]
A news article from 21 July 2011 said that South Africa has agreed to granting $202 million to Swaziland. (Note the figure — quite close to King Mswati’s “estimated personal wealth”.)
So, are bailouts actually all about the people who live in extreme luxury wanting to continue living that lifestyle no matter the consequence? It’s not about the people forced to live in extreme poverty; it’s about the super-rich — because this current system works for THEM. Was there such strong efforts to get more money before the super-rich started having to subtly cut back their luxurious lifestyles? The small percentage of the very wealthy reap all the benefits while the majority of this world live a very, very different life, basically bearing all the nasty consequences.
Swazis have a life expectancy of around 48 years old.[*] (However, I’ve seen other sources place that figure in the 30s.)
At 39%, Swaziland has the highest HIV-prevalence in adult population in the entire world.[*] This looks like it will even get worse — and their lack of access to sufficient food is pushing some of the already-infected to consider stopping their HIV meds since it’s required to take with something in the stomach (which has had to be cow shit for some, as mentioned previously).
There is a 43% unemployment rate — and the 2009/2010 Swaziland Household Income and Expenditure Survey says 63% of Swaziland live in poverty, and 30% live in extreme poverty. (The people of Swaziland additionally pay for the royal family’s “upkeep,” which is an outrageous sum, when the majority struggle to survive.)
The solution: The Equal Money System — a system that takes all equally into consideration. That means the end to a world where the super-rich continue to live in excessive luxury while the majority suffer and struggle to survive. No-one will be forced to eat cow dung; all will have access to sufficient food. It would mark the immediate end of poverty.
No Kings, monarchs, family dynasties / ruling families, “royalty”. No more corrupt governments. Instead, equality and real leadership. In a Best-For-All world system, Life would be absolutely honored and the planet would thrive in a way that we’ve never gotten to see.
We’d have a high life-expectancy worldwide. All would have equal access to food, clean water, quality education, quality medical care — to all that is required. Real prevention would be a priority — an end to the half-assed efforts to prevent the various problems in this world.
A world of haves, as it should be.
About 3 years ago, I was going down this street, and I noticed a house where 3 large dogs were being kept in this tiny fenced-in space — together. This space was so tiny that the dogs were trying to push themselves off of each other. They were all letting out this strained bark. They were very uncomfortable. Their body language and the noises they were letting out made it quite clear that this was a torturous experience — anyone would have been able to gather that. There was also no bowl of water out for them.
People nearby said that the people who lived at that house were barely home. They weren’t home at the time either.
The shelter was called. That’s the place to call for these things here — which doesn’t make sense because these types of things have no bounds as to when they occur, and yet this place that is to be called to handle these situations has only certain hours and days of operation. (It was also going to be closed down at one point.) There should be a type of group composed of people who assist with these situations, who keep an eye on these things, who actually immediately do something about it, and animal hospitals as well, open 24-7, just like for human beings — because that actually makes sense. These places should be conveniently located, everywhere, all over the world — because animals exist all over the world. This doesn’t exist in this world today because Life is not the priority of this abuse-driven system that is currently in place.
So, the people who were called did their thing, which was leaving a note on the door of the house after they had checked out the situation. But the animals were left like that, because that’s how we do things — which, yet again, doesn’t make any sense whatsoever because, clearly, the situation was unacceptable, and yet, because of how things are set up — the laws, the system — these animals were forced to continue enduring that experience, while it was completely possible that people could have gotten them out of that situation and put them into a better situation, immediately. Oddly, doing that would have been illegal. (For instance, there was some open land right there, and 3 tie-outs with stakes could have given them the ability to have ample room to move around and keep them away from the busy roads, and get 3 big bowls of water and food, and supervise them to ensure nothing happens involving the tie-outs until a more suitable scenario was arranged — that is just an example of what could have been done immediately for the moment that would have been a big relief for them. But doing something like that with another’s animals, which are deemed as property, and going onto their land property to do these things, would be considered illegal. “Ownership” being placed above Life.)
So, I went back the next day to check on the situation. What I see is different. There’s this other little fenced in area, further in the yard, that had a pet bunny in it the day before. The so-called caregivers of these animals decided to put one of the dogs in with the bunny in this small enclosure, the bunny’s enclosure. I approach the area and see the bunny’s limp body being shaken around in the dog’s mouth. The bunny was dead. The dog was quite lean, and likely was requiring a food source. I didn’t see dog food in the enclosure. The water that was available was only the bunny’s water; a water bottle with the steel tube — this was not accessible to the dog.
Getting within a certain distance from this dog, he reacted in the way of just immediately shaking, a lot, and dropping the back-end of his body as he moved to the opposite corner of this tiny enclosure — pissing, all over. This response indicated to me that this dog had been abused in a variety of ways, ways other than what I had seen initially.
These people shouldn’t have had the opportunity to have animals. They were directly showing that they should not be trusted to in fact be caregivers. Nothing I had seen indicated otherwise.
What did the people who were called for assistance do? Did they provide any solutions? Were options available to the real benefit of the animals, or was the focus more so only about punishing the people?
Obviously the well-being of the animals was not placed as priority, and is not an actual concern within this current system. They were left in an obvious state of distress from the start — and when animals are confiscated, they’re then typically placed into yet another unpleasant, stressful environment, such as the shelter.
This update of the situation was again reported — but did anything happen? Was anything even done to ensure that it didn’t happen again by these people, let alone all of humanity? Why do we not actually do what’s required to prevent these things, even when it is obvious why it occurs?
Real prevention — you don’t see that in this world today.
It would make sense if each human would go through mandatory, thorough education regarding proper care of animals, and to be evaluated in a few ways before being the caregiver of an animal. It should be a priority to have things in place where it is ensured that, when there is any abuse, it is known, and something is done about it immediately — and that it is corrected in all ways. That would be us as humanity showing that we actually care. When we do things from the starting point of what is Best For All Life, the world would become a very cool place. At the moment, it is a very scary place — and this is so purely because of the human.
A variety of 24-7 conveniently located animal assistance, the mandatory, thorough education process for all of humanity, the evaluations, laws that make sense and are designed with the priority of ensuring that all Life is cared for, a system that actually makes sense and is Best For ALL, a system that stops abuse instead of a system that thrives on abuse and encourages it in various ways as our current system does — these things become possible in an Equal Money System. The situation I’ve previously summarized, as but one example, would not happen in an Equal Money System; lack of money, lack of assistance services, lack of education, lack of options, lack of access to resources — not in an Equal Money System.
Those who have not had the pleasure of having animals around because of lack of money would finally be able to do that. Everyone would have ample money in an Equal Money System, would always be able to afford whatever is required to give proper care to their animals and to give them the highest quality of life experience, no matter what — and they would know what to do, and how to do it.
Consider what the experience is for animals in this world. The extent of abuse that is done to them goes beyond your worst nightmares, the suffering that they endure as a direct result of the human. This can be out of ignorance, out of deliberate abusiveness by deranged human beings, out of greed; each can be prevented — real education, evaluation processes, laws and consequence that ‘fit the crime’, so to speak, and where it is about violations against Life (rather than human, animal, et cetera), a new system not based on profit.
If you’re 1 vote for the end of animal abuse, and you see that it’s common sense that we actually do what’s required to adequately and sufficiently take care of animals as equals, and to ensure that all have the highest quality of living, then join us at the EMS forum.
The Equal Money System is of real benefit to the animal kingdom, in all ways. (My writing here is by no means a comprehensive explanation — that information will be available in the book.)

Max, a then-homeless man in Utah, got the news around 2 weeks ago that he now has a “significant” amount of money. He inherited it from a wealthy brother, who died in 2010.
“He’ll no longer be living on the street or in abandoned storage sheds.” … “He’ll be able to have a normal life, and be able to have a home, provide for himself, and purchase clothing, food and health care.”[*]
And look at that: the only way he was able to have this type of life — a type of life ALL should have, absolutely assured no matter what from birth to death — was through inheriting it from a now-dead wealthy family member. So, just because he was born into this specific family, with that specific brother — who was now willing to share his wealth with his homeless brother, but only after he died — was this type of life then attainable to Max.
This news story was placed in the “weird news” section. It’s seen as weird for a homeless person to suddenly be able to have a home, provide for her/himself, get clothing, food, health care for themselves. Max here did not expect to receive this money either; he was “shocked”.
It is money that determines whether or not you can have that type of life — whether you can have a home, clothing, food, health care. These are basic needs — why aren’t our basic needs provided for ALL of us as a basic right wherein we have something solidly in place that assures these needs are met in all ways, immediately, for everyone on Earth? The way that we have currently designed things makes no sense.
We’ve made a world where more than half the population live in poverty. There is enough food to feed everyone; and yet, the majority of the world are not getting sufficient food and are starving to death. We have so many who do not even have access to clean water. That is the reality that we’ve accepted and allowed, that is the reality that we’ve collectively created. We did it, and we are able to change it — and we require to change ourselves. Merely look at what exists in this world as a direct result of humanity and it speaks for itself that we do in fact all require to do that. This world is ruled by greed, full of abuse — it really says something about the human.
Let’s make it so that EVERYONE in this world can have such a life that Max here is now able to have. The Equal Money System makes this happen — a new system that makes a new world possible where ALL live a dignified life, from birth to death, where ALL will have a home, be able to provide for themselves, have sufficient clothing, food and health care, where ALL get equal access to resources. All get this simply because they are here, simply because they are alive — simply because it is clearly, obviously that which is Best For All. It’s an EQUALITY system, and it’s WORLDWIDE. That means that, finally, it will no longer matter what part of the world you’re born in, nor what family you’re born into.
This gives humanity the opportunity to actually exist here in this world without struggling to survive — to actually live. We are able to make this a reality for everyone on Earth.
What we as humanity exist as, and what we have in turn made this world into, is completely unacceptable. Time to take self-responsibility for what exists here in this world and make a new world, become a new human.
Why aren’t more atheists in significant leadership positions in this world? Would it matter if there were? Only if they are interested in real solutions.
“An atheist loves himself and his fellow man instead of a god. An atheist accepts that heaven is something for which we should work now – here on earth – for all men together to enjoy.” “An atheist knows that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An atheist knows that a deed must be done instead of a prayer said. An atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty vanquished, war eliminated.” (MURRAY v. CURLETT, Petition for Relief, 1959)
Cool, potential. But 1959 — have atheists really been working for Heaven on Earth all this time? How have they went about doing this? What the hell happened?
Let’s look at a few things atheists are focusing on: defending civil rights for nonbelievers; the total separation of church and state; addressing issues of the First Amendment public policy; church/state violations; bringing about change through activism to benefit the secular community. Within this, all Life is not considered, real solutions for this world are not being considered. Look at how many in this world have NO rights at the moment. Leaving the current system in place, and merely tweaking points within it, is absolutely unacceptable and is in no way an option. Church/state violations — what about all of the violations against LIFE? What about doing that which benefits ALL LIFE? What about bringing about REAL change, within and without? A completely new system that is Best For All Life, the Equal Money System, wherein all have equal rights, violations against Life cease to exist, all Life is actually benefited; that is a real solution — all Life is considered, as one, as equal. Wouldn’t feel the need to separate anything then; besides, religion will end with Equal Money.
Look at what actually becomes possible within such a system. Look at, for instance, how poverty immediately ends, war ends, how science will change. See, paragraph 2 (the above quote) becomes a reality; real ‘loving thy neighbor as thyself’, real ‘Heaven on Earth’.
Whether religious or atheist, or anything else, look: You are HUMAN; accordingly, you require to sort yourself out, to re-educate yourself, and to change yourself as who you are into a human being that is Best For All. The same points, for instance, that were jotted down in my previous post with regards to what the belief in an afterlife-Heaven reveals about humanity — abdication of self-responsibility, self-interest, acceptance and allowance of abuse, and so on — it applies here as well, with atheists. It is a human problem — and the human is the problem. Look at what exists here as a result of humanity. Yet, as humanity — as who did it, who allowed it, accepted it, who did nothing to stop it, as the root of the problems in this world — we stop, we stand up, we correct ourselves, and we actually change ourselves in a way where we become the actual living solution.
We become the human that this world actually requires and deserves — self-responsible, self-honest, a human that takes action, always, that actually cares, a human that is fearless and relentless in establishing that which is Best For ALL Life as ourselves and this world, a human that is unstoppable and immovable in this task, incorruptible, uncompromising, a human who has taken on their potential of abuse, who has taken on their ego and can work with anyone and anything, who always does what is Best For All Life in all ways as it has actually become who they are, with absolute self-discipline, dedication, self-stability that remains constant even in an increasingly unstable world, and solid self-trust where one can actually trust themselves and be trusted to always do what is Best For All Life, no matter what. A real leader. This world requires real leaders — as many as possible — who stand as a living example for humanity while each one wills themselves to stand up and become a real leader themselves, as equals, equally taking self-responsibility for themselves and this world.
Atheism is referred to as a “life stance”. Take a real life stance — stand up for LIFE. Join the Equal Money & Equal Life direction, where we’ll enter the political arena as real leaders, making a world where ALL LIFE is equally honored and supported, ensuring ALL live a dignified life from birth to death and that the Earth is actually cared for. We will not fail to make the world a better place.
Time to stand up for Life. If you’re unwilling to do so: don’t claim to have the answers, you should keep your opinions to yourself; the knowledge you may have is rendered useless through your inaction, refusal to take self-responsibility for what exists here, and failure to consider all Life.
“Use your 1 vote. Participate. Change the destiny of the world. That is why we are here — join us. We won’t stop, and we will stand by that which is proven mathematically, scientifically to be the Best For All — unquestioningly. Therefore, supporting us is supporting you. Let’s walk and get this done.” (from Oneness in Politics)
In a recent interview, Stephen W. Hawking said the following about “Heaven” / the “afterlife”:
“…a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”
- Is the afterlife-Heaven a “fairy story”? The idea of going to an afterlife-Heaven as a reward for apparently being a “good person” by abiding by what’s presented as what “God” wants of you — this is undeniably similar to, for instance, the fairytale of Santa; getting your presents as a reward for being a “good boy/girl” by abiding by what’s presented as what “Santa” wants of you. You’ve got your “nice” list / “Heaven” list and your “naughty” list / “Hell” list. “Santa” / “God” is always watching you, they conveniently live in places out of your ‘reach’, they both apparently exist forever as these positions of authority figures, and are typically depicted as old white men with big white beards. The connections keep going. Time to get real.
- Yes, humanity is afraid of the ‘dark’. Time to rid ourselves of this fear and see what is possible.
An afterlife / hereafter is irrelevant — we are HERE. HERE is relevant, not the “here-after”. LIFE is relevant, not the “after-life”. What matters is this physical reality.
It is, though, relevant to see what the belief in an afterlife-Heaven reveals about humanity. The following are but a few points:
- It shows a wanting of something different than what exists here, something “better” — but instead of taking self-responsibility for what is here and what self has become and actually doing what’s required to correct and change self and this world, what exists here is disregarded and a “better place” is created mentally and projected ‘out there’, waiting and hoping to go ‘there’ someday, dealing with a death of another by saying, “they’re in a better place now.”
- It shows desire to avoid and escape reality, attraction to distraction, fear of facing self and this reality, a preference within humanity for fantasy and illusion over what is real.
- The idea that one goes to a “Heaven” when they die where they apparently exist in a blissful state forevermore while those on Earth continue to suffer, while the state of this world just continues, and nothing being done about it — this is completely unacceptable. It exhibits absolute self-interest and separation.
- Within the different stories about what “Heaven” consists of, what is perceived as “pleasurable” is shown; and the points that provide these pleasures typically consist of abuse.
- The belief in an afterlife-Heaven promotes waiting, inaction, abdication of self-responsibility for what exists in this world. It promotes not only acceptance of abuse, but the derivement of pleasure from it. The belief in an afterlife-Heaven does nothing but add to the problems in this world; it actually contributes to Hell on Earth.
These points (postponement, self-interest, inaction, not taking self-responsibility, acceptance of abuse, avoidance, et cetera) are required to be taken apart and taken on in a way that they absolutely cease to exist within ourselves. Desteni I Process shows how this can be done. Within Desteni I Process, we face the reality of ourselves, we take self-responsibility for what we have become, we do what is required to actually correct and change ourselves, aligning ourselves with that which is Best For All Life.
Now, in dropping those aspects of “Heaven,” removing the religious aspects of “Heaven,” and looking at it simply as ‘an existence devoid of suffering,’ it becomes relevant, as this world is full of suffering. In that way, Heaven is possible and would benefit everyone — it would have to be real, and it would have to not consist of any form of abuse. Suffering is a result of abuse; you cannot have an existence in fact devoid of suffering without effectively eliminating abuse. (See my previous blog posts for more on this point.) Thus, Heaven here on Earth as a Heaven that is Best For All Life, wherein EVERYONE has what’s required, lives a dignified life, from birth to death. A world without abuse; and thus, a world without suffering. A world where Life thrives. The Equal Money System and Desteni I Process make it possible to have Heaven on Earth.
Interviewer: “So here we are. What should we do?”
Hawking: “We should seek the greatest value of our action.”
Our actions have value when we value Life within and through our actions. When we do what is Best For All Life, that is “the greatest value of our action”.
So, here’s to the end of Heaven as a religious ‘fairy-story’ for the fearful and the bringing of a real Heaven, here on Earth, in the physical, where all Life is honored, where equality is actually applied and lived, where ALL fearlessly do what is BEST FOR ALL LIFE.
There’s been an increase in the amount of people fleeing by sea from North Africa.
“One in 10 migrants fleeing conflict in Libya by sea is likely to drown or die from hunger and exhaustion in appalling conditions during the crossing.”[*]
They make their voyages on insufficient boats, which are additionally overcrowded. Given these dangerous travels, rescues become necessary; and the rescues are additionally dangerous, as boats that should have around 50 people on board end up with up to 800 people[*].
It speaks for itself as to what the environment and their experience within such environment is like. Staying in that environment or leaving, both are dangerous; though, leaving gives the possibility of a less chaotic situation to exist in, and there’s an impression given that a chance at more opportunity awaits them — if they can make it to their destination.
They flee to go to a place where things are different. But yet, they find that, some things, they cannot get away from — because it exists everywhere.
“When the war broke out I fled inhumanity in Libya but I find inhumanity in Europe.” (Seney Alema, a 17-year-old — he fled to France from Libya.)[*]
Abuse will still exist regardless of where they go. It’s still the same world system that not only tolerates and permits abuse, but supports and encourages it, and actually requires it to exist.
These are the types of ways that this situation is being handled:
- “With no stable government to negotiate with in Tunisia and Libya, European policy seems to be the hope that migrants will just stop knocking on their door.”[*]
- “…France’s Parliament has approved a law which seeks to ensure that refugees from the unrest in North Africa stay outside of the republic.”[*]
A real solution to the actual problem is not even considered. For instance, those who are receiving migrants are only interested in stopping / preventing that aspect alone; trying to cease only the outflows of the problem that cause “disturbances” to their desired working of the current system, while keeping the real problems in place — an integral part of the current system. To them, the “problem” is just that floods of people, who they do not want anything to do with, are coming to “their” space. All the while, the actual problems in this world continue to flourish.
“Up to 27 million people are modern-day slaves, and migrants fleeing violence in North Africa are among those most at risk of being exploited.”[*]
- “US Ambassador-at-Large Luis CdeBaca is calling on the countries of the world to take a harder stance on human slavery.”[*]
A “harder stance”. That shows that a stance was not actually taken in fact. You either stand for something or not, absolute, that’s an actual stance. Requesting a harder stance is not effective; slavery will not stop unless there’s a new system. This current system involves and results in slavery, in various ways. Abuse is part of its very design, its very foundation. The end of the current system thus makes the end of abuse possible; implementing a new system that is Best For All takes that ‘possibility’ to an inevitability. If one were to actually take a stance on stopping human slavery, that would entail doing their part within implementing a new system wherein human slavery is not possible.
- “It is only through an equally well organised network that links the countries of origin to those of transit and destination, that we can prevent the weakest and the most vulnerable from becoming a human commodity,” says a coordinator for an anti-trafficking group.[*]
This is proposed when actually people becoming “weak” and “vulnerable” in such a way can be prevented in the first place. This can additionally go back further. Instead, the focus is on trying to prevent outflows from the initial problem without ever taking on the problem, let alone the cause of that problem; real prevention is not considered. This world requires real prevention, an end to halfways. Again, if one actually wanted to stop human trafficking, that would require the same thing as the human slavery point above.
There is 1 real solution: The Equal Money System. The Equal Money System would significantly reduce abuse worldwide by it’s very implementation; and once established, any points of abuse that remain can actually be taken on effectively.
Look at the migrant situation; it is clear that their future is of no concern. This falls in line with the lack of concern over the future of humanity and this world in its entirety. For instance, look at how nature and the children of this world are treated — atrociously. That of course has great impact on our future. What already exists here because of the human is utterly horrific — as for the future, just do the math. Humanity disregards everything that even allows for being here in this world. Though, humanity doesn’t have to be this; change is possible — I’ve proven it to myself within Desteni I Process. We require to change ourselves, and it is imperative that a new system is implemented that actually supports and assists with that. These same points that exist within this current system, they also exist within the human, as the system exists by way of the human; and thus, the human has to take on these points within self and change self in a way that is Best For All Life. The way that things would be and function in the Equal Money System is the way that the human requires to be and function — as the principle of that which is Best For All Life.
The Equal Money System makes a new world possible where Life is honored and supported, the Earth is actually cared for, children are not exposed to abuse, are not hindered in their expression, development and potential, where it is ensured that each child receives full support and assistance in all applicable ways. It gives a real future to all of humanity, to all of this world — a future that is Best For All Life.
The conditions within which people experience the need to flee from wouldn’t exist in an Equal Money System. It would get rid of poverty immediately. Inhumane working conditions would not exist; we’d have a new labor system. Slavery would not exist, war would not exist, we’d have a new world government, food shortages would not exist. Additionally, borders as control would not exist, law would change — the list goes on and on!
