The Equal Money System will focus on the Development of Information Technology at the Most Advanced Possible Level, and the attainment of such Technologies for all – so ensuring a sustainable redirection in the requirements of, for example, plants in the use of paper. The Publishing Industry will Move to an Electronic Way to coincide with Equal Availability of Technology, making it Possible for Each Person to actively Participate and Research each Policy and decision that Impacts Life in General, with the emphasis being on a Solution without fear.
Yes, when alternatives are available that produce less harm, the alternative requires to be chosen over our 'preferences'.
The free market allows for the Elite to prosper, invent and progress and the price that is paid is the suffering of the majority. Remember, the free market operates on a global scale - it is an interconnected system where we cannot merely look at a single country's performance to assess the effectiveness of the free market - one requires to include the whole world into the picture. The free market has failed to provide a solution that considers all Equally and is therefore a flawed system. Please educate yourself on reality and the consequences of free market through consulting our Documentary list on the Forum as well as through reading the Economist's Journey to Life blog.
Please see the response we made in relation to your other comment on fear.
Yes indeed. The point of technology in an Equal Money System will be to support life on Earth to be best for all, humans, animals, plant life and the planet as a whole. So yes, all forms of technology will be developed and distributed within consideration of the environmental consequences. There is much technological development even today that is developed within consideration of environmental responsibility, but they often don't get put into production simply because the current system is based on profit and not on what is best for the planet as a whole. So with an Equal Money System, scientists and engineers will be able to focus their skills on developing actual solutions. Through this we might find that some forms of technology require restructuring or discontinuation while solutions that have not yet been possible to implement will become possible. Whether or not space exploration will be prioritized will thus also be based on the same measurement of what is Best for All, as a practical and physical equation. However the first priority will be to reestablish the Earth to an expression of Equality and Dignified Life.
When looking at paper versus electricity-production - with electricity production exist various alternatives such as renewable energy that don't require the destruction or consumption of some life-form or another to the extent as is done now. With paper, however, there are no such alternatives - paper is made from trees, period. Therefore, in exploring the electronic publishing option there is more chance that we'll do less harm. Additionally, we can create Technology made with superior materials and the BEST technology there is (thus once the technology is here and functioning and working, no need to upgrade every month or year , it is already the best) and so the electronic device is already a life time guarantee that can contain various applications and files – hereby reducing the physical materials required to preserve and share knowledge and information.
La observación de ‘actividades empresariales’ indica que aún consideras que será posible generar ganancia como tal en este sistema, donde esa necesidad de ganancia Es lo que necesita promoción/ mover flujos de dinero. Sugiero también entender que no habrá empresas privadas monopolizando los recursos. El desarrollo del Sistema Igualitario será tal donde la tecnología permita a todo individuo estar enterado de las decisiones, el manejo y funcionamiento de todo aspecto y ámbito que esté ligado al funcionamiento y mantenimiento del sistema de manera sustentable. Por ende la tecnología no será sinónimo de ganancia, monopolio y forma de ‘control’ sobre recursos, sino una herramienta válida y viable para generar, apoyar y mantener formas viables del uso de energía para facilitar y beneficiar la vida práctica en el mundo.
Con respecto al otro punto que mencionas, sugiero considerar cómo es que tales ‘métodos análogos’ han generado gran polución en el planeta únicamente debido al deseo de satisfacer lo que ‘uno’ considera como ‘valioso’ sin considerar realmente lo que es el Valor Real como la Vida Física – por ende, la añoranza por el pasado es más bien un punto personal que sugiero investigar a fondo y realmente considerar si lo que has propuesto tiene validez dentro del contexto de la propuesta inicial en el rubro de tecnología como tal. La cultura no ha servido para cambiar la naturaleza humana, al contrario, la ha reforzado para mantener separación entre el valor real de la vida física y el valor ‘humano/ sentimental’ que se ha impuesto sobre los seres, las cosas, la tierra y las actividades humanas mismas. Puedes leer las propuestas referentes a la vida cotidiana y social también para comentar al respecto.
It’s one thing with the trees and the paper industry – starting to regard trees as living beings supporting and enabling OUR living here on earth – and it’s another thing with equalizing the access to knowledge and information to ALL – which can be done using the platforms already available, like the internet.
What is important to be understood is that a new system based on the value of life will promote and support the point of self-responsibility, which should ultimately be the point of any education. There’s nothing ‘to do’ about or with those not yet interested in participating or researching about decisions –
sooner or later, especially when the fear (which is currently the main driving force and supported / used by the system to define ‘life’ within inequality and power games) is out of the equation, everyone will get to the point of realizing that it is in their own interest to participate as an equal part of the Earth towards establishing the best solutions and the best support for life in all ways possible.
Technology is currently now existent as the result of a abuse. Have a look at your major corporations that definitely align with 'free market' policies through which products are produced with slave labor in sweat shops, wherein the dignity of living human beings is diminished to a number that can always 'work faster' to make the most profit.
Thus, if we can redefine a 'Free Market' it can only be upon the foundation of the Equal Money System being the agreement between individuals to give and receive a dignifying living support from birth to death. Then, we will be able to focus on developing and manufacturing technology that is no longer produced to create profit, but as an actual development of humanity as technological advances that can be produced and generated under strict policies with proper labor conditions, materials and procedures that are no longer harmful for the individuals and/or the environment, including the animal kingdom of course.
Currently technology 'works' within a framework of abuse, and this is what must be absolutely reformed in order to ensure that what is supported at all times within the Equality System, is the living condition of the individuals and the preservation of the environment. Therefore, technology must qualify within these standards in order to continue being viable within the new framework of the world system.
This implies that any other procedure of its production and manufacture that entails any form of abuse toward life, will be considered as an aspect to correct, transform or replace to non-harmful procedures, as we are already seeing the consequences of what our massive technological production is creating in terms of harmful waste, which stems from 'Free Market' policies that allow planned obsolescence under which what is sought, is to continue making the most profit without any other physical reality consideration. Thus, there is - on the contrary to your perspective - a lot to change, reform, align and correct within the technological industries in our current world to make them Equal-Life friendly and sustainable in the future.
Helaas kunnen we niet wachten op de mensheid om zich 'van zijn goede kant te laten zien'. We moeten realistisch zijn en herkennen dat de meeste mensen momenteel doen wat ze doen vanuit een persoonlijk winst-motief. Het gedrag van mensen is deels een gevolg van het huidige geldsysteem waarbij het hele systeem gebaseerd is op 'survival of the fittest' waar niet iedereen winnaar kan zijn. De eerste stap, daarom om onze relatie met onszelf en anderen mensen te veranderen, is er voor te zorgen dat iedereen op gelijke voet staat in economische zin, via de implementering van een Gelijk Geldsysteem.
Begrijp ook dat doorheen de geschiedenis we ons gedrag en onze levensstijlen gevormd hebben rond geld als de aandrijvende kracht van ons bestaan. Als we plots het hele concept van 'geld' wegschrappen uit onze woordenschap, zal het zijn alsof we in een 'zwart gat' vallen waarin we geen leidend principe meer hebben. Dus, het Gelijk Geldsysteem gebruikt het concept van geld als een manier om iedereen op gelijke voet te brengen en om elk gedrag dat voortkomt uit overlevingsdrang teniet te doen - want, wanneer iedereen's behoeften vervuld zijn, gaat het niet meer om overleven, maar om werkelijk LEVEN. Van daaruit kan iedereen zichzelf echt gaan ontwikkelen en uitdrukken, ondervinden wat het is dat ieder graag doet, enzovoort. Wanneer iedereen de ander als een gelijke erkent en eenieder's belangen op een gelijke manier te hart houdt - dan kan uiteindelijk het concept van geld wegvallen - maar dat ligt zeker niet in de nabije toekomst, we hebben nog een lange weg te gaan.
All throughout history we have shaped and moulded our behaviours and lifestyles around money as the driving force of our existence. If we now suddenly take the whole concept of ‘money’ out of the equation – we are faced with no direction to guide us.
Without a practical system being in place to direct human beings towards what is Best for All – we only have ourselves to fall back to and what we have become: which is self-interested individuals with no regard for any other life forms but ourselves – be it humans, animals or plants.
Thus, the Equal Money System uses the concept of money as a way to guide and allocate resources and to provide direction within a structural framework. Within the Equal Money stage, extensive re-education will take place to transform ourselves from the self-interested agents we’ve allowed ourselves to become -- to beings who are in fact responsible towards themselves and their environment. As long as this point of education / transformation of human nature has not taken place – we cannot afford ourselves to place ourselves in a Resource Based Economy – as we will merely re-create the same problems from the past.
There is no incentive required - incentive is used within the current system to get people to do more than is actually required. Most are willing to do that which is necessary to effectively provide oneself with one's needs. You don't require incentive in the form of reward in to motivate you to feed yourself - you do so because you are hungry as your physical requires food. Thus, the labor that one is required to do becomes actually equal to what is required to provide one with one's needs, unlike in the current Capitalist system where the majority of the population is forced to worked for the majority of one's life just to 'get by', most not even getting effective support in terms of having enough income to afford proper nutrition, proper healthcare, education, etc.
Much of the resistance to laboring, as contribution to society, is due to in the current system that beings are forced to spend the majority of their time in jobs that do not pay well and where the labor that is done/what is produced from the labor is simply for the sake of profit and not to the actual benefit of life. Thus, the resistance is to being enslaved and forced to work for no benefit of oneself or the world, but merely to maintain ones survival while their labor provides profit for someone else to live a better lifestyle.
Most of the population is caught up in wage-enslavement - within the Equal Money System individuals will be freed-up as the labor one is required to do will be a small fraction of what the average human must do currently, thus individuals will have the time and freedom to explore ways to get involved in society, and as all will also have access to one's needs, proper healthcare, education, etc, all will be highly functional human beings, and no one will be forced into a life of limitation and uninvolvement by not having access to that which is necessary for one to be able to be an effective equal participant in this reality.
Thus, we will transform the current accepted nature of the human as limitation, into expansion and expression, where one will be supported to be and become an effective individual and expand to the utmost of one's potential. Within this, real self-expression of the human will emerge where one will participate in this reality as self-movement to express oneself here as a part of and contributor to this world and reality as self expression to live a full and satisfying life, as is what would happen if one was not immediately born into a reality of life-enslavement, but born into a world of support, thus within the Equal Money System, we transform the system from one of enslavement to one that supports life and give ourselves the gift of being able to for once really actually live and see what we're capable of when we stand together in equality and oneness.
Yes, Equal Money System entails a process of renewing the current mechanisms in which everything is being produced, which is determined by money itself. The governments will no longer have any form of interest above Life itself as in owning ‘control’ over the Earth’s resources, they only exist as obstacles to support all participants of the system equally because of Money still existing as a form of power and control in itself. Thus, it is a process that begins within the realization of how each one of us have accepted and allowed a world-system wherein everyone is driven to get and make the most money without considering what are the actual consequences of creating such products and energy with the least effective ways due to money/ lower costs in production. People will be able to decide in the Equal Money System which are the best options and ways to produce and create technology that is the least harmful toward beings and the environment. Remember that Equal Money System is a political implementation wherein all beings will be equally empowered to decide what is best for all – hence any form of abuse that exist currently due to profit/ money, will stop being supported and will be replaced with production mechanisms and agreements that consider the environment, the people involved and the sustainability of the solution itself on the long run.
Understand that within the Equal Money System, one's requirement for a dignified, substantial and fulfilling Life doesn't defined by one's Job/labour.
We have conditioned ourselves to the idea that: Job = Money = Life and yet missed the Obvious - our current Money System diminish Life wherein the majority of this world do not have a chance to live their LIFE due to lack of Money and even the rest of us who have a job, experience ourselves in a constant fear and worries about money and simply keep on racing for our survival. However the Equal Money System is the stepping stone for LIFE that is Best for ALL as a physical living expression. When we replace the word 'Money' with the word 'Life' we will see that Equal Money System is in fact an Equal Life System which is where we are heading towards with the establishment of Equal Money System.
I suggest reading the Labour Wiki Page to gain perspective of how the Labour system will function in the Equal Money System and why the fear of losing one’s job due to Technology improvements will cease to exists within the Equal Money System.
