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)
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!

“We yelled, ‘We are peaceful! Peaceful!’ The women and children were attacked just like the rest of us,” he said. “They moved in as soon as the media left us. They knew what they’re doing.”
(Mahmoud Mansouri, a protester, in reference to his experience with the police)
“They were beating me so hard I could no longer see. There was so much blood running from my head,” he said. “I was yelling, ‘I’m a doctor! I’m a doctor!’ But they didn’t stop.”
(Sadek Akikri, a doctor, in reference to his experience with the police when giving medical attention to sick protesters at a medical tent)
Non-violent pro-democracy demonstrations have been held in Bahrain. They’ve demanded for fair elections and equal rights for all. The army locked down Bahrain. Police, via orders from the Bahraini government, responded to the demonstrations with violence — and lots of it. There’s been reports of severe injuries, torture, murder.
Those on the receiving end of the attacks have not had the medical attention that they require, as the Bahraini government made orders prohibiting it. There have been reports of ambulance paramedics and doctors being attacked by Bahraini police for treating protesters — some have even been killed. Activists who have been brought to trial were additionally denied contact with their lawyers.
Military aid from the U.S. in the amount of roughly $20 million was given to Bahrain in 2010. The program it was through is specifically for helping foreign governments to purchase American-made weapons, services and training; and thus, some of the military equipment that’s been used in this situation likely came from the U.S.
The Bahraini government is a monarchy. The al-Khalifa family have ruled Bahrain for almost 230 years. While the protesters want an end to this, the U.S. has interest in it being kept in place so that the benefits, such as military power and oil supply lines, from the relationship are kept in place as well. This relationship is placed above the lives of the Bahraini people who are calling for equal rights and political change — even when they are being attacked, tortured and murdered for doing so. Thus, U.S. support is not placed with the demonstrators; it’s placed with the Bahraini government, who responded with deadly force to peaceful protesting.
The U.S. doesn’t want to ‘cross the line’ where the established relationship is damaged. While the decision to do so could happen, it would only be as an effort to protect other interests/relationships/benefits that may be lost as consequence for not doing so. Decisions in this system are based on self-interest, not common-interest in the way of that which is Best For All Life.
In this current system, the strive for money, power and control takes priority. There is more concern over ‘making a killing’ than the real killing going on. The atrocities in this world are just disregarded, and belief and desire take the lead within humanity — where mere ego has been placed above LIFE. This is completely unacceptable.
It is time to put an end to the atrocities in this world — an end to abuse in all forms, an end to separation, corruption and destruction, an end to delusional belief and value systems, an end to the reign of ego. It is time for a new system; a system that actually makes this possible, a system that focuses on what really matters.
The Equal Money System has a solid foundation, a solid core principle that leaves no potential–and no tolerance–for abuse. Life is placed as priority. No need to demand equal rights in an Equality System.
It is the self-honest, commonsensical solution for this planet.
