I was watching something a few weeks ago about pneumonia in this area where everyone lived in poverty. The conditions were horrible, all the children were sick often, many dying — not just from pneumonia, but the focus of what I was watching was specifically on that point.
One of the health professionals going to the area was pointing out the obvious; the children were getting sick at this rate and severity because of the conditions of the environment they had to live in. They were not being provided the necessary prevention — nor were they receiving the required medical care when there was an infection.
One of the mothers of the children was interviewed, and was sharing her story of what the doctor told her, which was that she must get out of this place. She said that she pointed out to the doctor that she does not have a choice. Where would she go, and how would she get there, and how would she survive if she did make it to another place? What are her options — living in poverty with others or living in poverty isolated from others? The woman, if she left, would very likely end up in yet another environment that was essentially the same. And how was she expected to drag the child along on the trip while the kid was so sick? From what I’m looking at here, the advice given to her by the doctor, if followed, would actually not benefit the woman and her child at all, but rather possibly only add to their suffering.
How do you have choice in this world if you don’t have money? She doesn’t have money; she doesn’t have choice.
Money would make it possible to not even have areas like this even EXIST in this world. Money changes the whole situation — and yet, we’ve designed things in such a way that this woman, for example, does not have equal access to money and, thus, no access to proper medical care, sufficient living conditions, et cetera, for herself and her child.
The Equal Money System would make it so that each of the human beings I saw in this documentary would suddenly have a completely different life experience; having the same opportunity and access as a millionaire does in today’s world. We’d see the immediate end of poverty, and we’d have quality medical care that ALL would have access to.
Then there were hospital scenes. During a moment with one of the families, who were there because the little son had pneumonia, it is learned that his treatment will be stopped because only a certain amount was funded for him and his treatment expenses had reached that limit. And that’s it — no money, no treatment; no treatment, the child is forced to likely die soon after. No choice for the child either — from the start within such a life. The father asks everyone he can for money, trying to gather enough to continue the boy’s treatment. A life-or-death decision for this child, having to be placed into the hands of others — and why the hands of others? Because there’s MONEY in those hands. We should have access to what we require merely because we are here.
How do we allow such shit to exist? Would you want to live like that? Make it so that no-one has to. We can make a world where we would not hesitate even for a moment walking the life experience of anyone else on this planet. It is time we actually do it. It is time that we correct what can be corrected while we have a shot at doing so.
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.
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!

A recent study found that the amount of deliberate head injuries to babies DOUBLED during the recent recession. Database research showed a 101% increase. There was also a notable rise in more extensive injuries, causing a rise in deaths and severe brain injuries. (Study conducted by researchers at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland.) Previous research conducted by the University of Pittsburgh gave similar findings; deliberate head trauma increased substantially after the recession began.
Our current money system is abusive, and it specifically encourages–in various ways–the already-abusive human to become increasingly more abusive. The study-finding shows merely 1 example of this. (Abuse is an incredibly vast aspect of humanity, and as a result, this world; and I am merely using this study-finding that touches on 1 example as a reference point for this writing.)
The human–you and I–caused the current abusive system of this world that disregards Life. The current system did not just magically, spontaneously come to be. The human made it possible, and the human made it manifest in this world; and it took time, it took effort, it took great motivation and drive fueled by self-interest and desire to abuse.
An absolute change is required, within and without — as something done only halfway does not stand the test of time, and simply cannot be trusted. The human has to change for the world to truly change.
If humanity does not change, the potential of abuse remains. The potential–no matter how minuscule–to abuse within each human must cease to exist, establishing a human that can actually be trusted with Life. By doing this with ourselves, for ourselves, we in that way ensure that it will not exist within this world. In other words, by changing ourselves, we ensure that the change that we bring to the world is real and stands the test of time.
The human is the root of the problems in this world — but we can be the actual living solution.
Just as the human caused the current system, the human–YOU AND I–take self-responsibility and do what is required to bring about a world where Life is never again disregarded, but supported, cared for and honored as ourselves in every way, eternally.
So, what is the solution? Unless all points are considered, and all Life is considered, it is not a real solution. Desteni considers all points and all Life, and has done extensive research — and has presented a real solution: world-wide Equality Systems, such as the Equal Money System (EMS), and Desteni I Process (DIP).
Let’s take the aforementioned study-finding for example; humans deliberately inflicting head trauma on to babies twice as much as usual during the recession. There’s 2 points I’m looking at within this: the human experience within the recession–in other words, the current money system–triggers an increase of usual abusive activity; and that the human participates within such abuse as a “usual”. Within an EMS, each would have ample money; and thus, it would be the end of the experience of money-related stress or financial strain. The EMS would significantly eliminate abuse and self-destructiveness by itself. Within DIP, the self-destructive / -abusive nature that exists within humanity as the potential of such acts is taken on.
(Additionally, the articles I read suggested the following points: parents or caregivers of a child may have been “stressed to the breaking-point” as a result of economic problems such as foreclosures and unemployment; parents or caregivers of a child, through suddenly becoming homeless, may have been forced to place their child around relatives or others who would do such things; support-services for children and families have been cut down. None of these points would exist in an EMS.)
In an EMS, there would not be such a thing as “lacking money”. No recession. It would be the end of poverty. EVERYONE in this world would actually be living like MILLIONAIRES in an EMS. The EMS is a completely new system; and what it makes possible in this world goes beyond anything humanity’s ever seen or lived.
The EMS will be established in this world in the next 10-20 years. While the EMS is on its way, DIP gives the opportunity to build quite a sufficient income for yourself; and thus, directly giving the opportunity to assist and support yourself in all ways while you participate in the courses and assist with bringing real change to this world through changing yourself.
We are able to change our nature, we are able to change what we have become. Within DIP, you take this on in an effective step-by-step, breath-by-breath practical way. It takes self-discipline and self-dedication to get this done, and DIP supports and assists you to develop that, among other points, within yourself — to a degree that you may have never considered possible.
Let’s change ourselves as humanity in a way that stands the test of time and make a New World possible where ALL live a dignified life, from birth to death — where abuse ceases to exist and would not even be part of our vocabulary, because we as humanity no longer live that word and stand absolute in never again accepting and allowing abuse to exist within ourselves, and thus our world.
I am 1 vote for Equal Money, and a world where the principle of What is Best For ALL Life is what each and every human lives and breathes, a world where abuse in any form can no longer exist — are you?
We’ve turned this place into Hell — but we’re able to turn it into Heaven.
