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.
