The Equal Money System will allow Religious Freedom of Association as long as it does not impede on the Right to Life and Protection and Equal Distribution of Resources, or impede on the Fulfillment, Education and Lifestyle of Each Living Being on Earth.
Yes - there will be - please read the 'Justice' page on the EMS wiki
The terms 'right to life' has been abused by anti-abortion movements. For context on the use of the words 'Right to Life' here on this website - please read the following blogpost: http://economistjourneytolife.blogspot.co.za/2012/12/day-156-honoring-right-to-life-in-equal.html
So long as no harm is done within the practicing of religion within the framework of Constitutional Equality, religion is not a problem . Hence, religion will no longer be the same as how it exists currently.
Please read the section on "Honoring the Right to Life" on the Politics Page of the EMS Wiki for perspective on the definition of the Right to Life.
Religion in so far is it does not cause harm will be accepted. Understand, though - that education within an Equal Money System will play a vital role and each child will develop its skills for critical assessment and common sense to the greatest extent. Individuals will thus be critical of their own beliefs and not merely accept information on face value. As such, it is likely that religion will be practiced on a smaller scale than is done today.
In terms of what is taught in school, this will always be done within the starting point and context of what is Best for All as the foundation of the Equal Money System, and thus the education system within it. Curriculum content wise, the process is similar to that of policy-making (which you can read-up about here), where the general population can give feedback, input and suggestions at any time, which will be processed by a committee of volunteers who are experts in the field . Their output then gets peer-reviewed and published for final voting/cross-referencing by the general public. One will thus always be able to assess what is being taught within the education system, and the curriculum will be developed and improved through collective effort. The educational curriculum will be dynamic in nature as new feedback, improvement and research will be incorporated.
Within Education, critical and common sense reasoning skills will be encouraged - within this one can apply the information and knowledge which is being taught, and test whether what has been taught indeed results to an outcome which is Best for All. What is being taught, will thus be directly measurable and not be dogmatic in nature.
It is vital to understand that equal distribution of resources does not mean that everyone automatically gets 'the same' of everything. It means that resources are distributed in a way that is Best for All, where each individual will have their needs met according to their particular situation. A single person does not require a big house, a family cannot live comfortably in a one-bed room apartment - it is common sense. The goal is therefore not equal distribution, but for each one to have an Equal standard of Dignified Living. The word 'equal' is, thus, specific in this context as 'equitable' leaves room for interpretation of what is 'fair' - which means that what is Best for All is not guaranteed.
The Right to Life in the context of the Equal Money System must be understood based on the Principle of what is Best for All and not as an individual prerogative. Living in a way that is best for all life is also best for each individual as we are all dependent on the well-being of the whole. So it is not about 'tolerating' each other - it is about ensuring that what is here is Best for All - this is what the Right to Life is contingent upon.
Flawed life-forms that have no practical purpose and that only exist to abuse - like the human currently does - require to be re-aligned to live in a way that is Best for All or be contained or removed like the plague has been. The Right to Life does not mean the right to live to abuse, because Life is only optimal when it is Best for All. The same must be understood when considering 'lifestyles' - because many lifestyles that currently exist are designed within a consumer system that is dependent upon abuse and exploitation. It is the same with religious lifestyles that are to a large extent contingent upon fear - where in an Equal Money System it simply means that you have the freedom to practice a religious lifestyle as long as it does not impede on the lifestyles of others.
Agreed, belief-systems are ‘dangerous’ when they do not regard or consider the actuality of reality in practical terms of what is best for life.
I’d suggest having a look at the definition of the term “right to life”, which, even though it is existent in the current system, it is not honoured. Same with “human rights” – the term only exists because the violation of human rights exists, but practically in the world system: human rights are not honoured, thus the ‘right to life’ is not honoured.
Within an equal money system, the ‘right to life’ will be re-defined to in fact be a practical living expression / application of how we exist and how our systems function. And the ‘right to life’ must obviously include not only humans, but everything that is of life, including our planet, nature, the animal kingdom.
So, yes – many words will require re-defining, which is what the Wiki is here for and we’ll definitely expand upon the terms ‘Right to Life’ within the Wiki to make sure there are no misconceptions in terms of what we refer to when using the words ‘Right to Life’.
The deconstruction of our beliefs will enable us to transcend our beliefs, which we will be walked through within our education system in the equal money system, where we will learn that beliefs are not based on the physical reality, thus they shouldn’t constitute how we conduct ourselves within reality. We will rather be re-educating everyone, so one can see for themselves that beliefs are not necessary, because beliefs are a matter of opinion and thus cause division, when we can all live in what is best for all based on common sense living. Equal money will be thus be based on practical considerations of all people and based on physical facts that are relevant to whatever we are building or constructing within our environment and world to create a stable system for all life, to live and enjoy.
Within the equal money system, the basis and foundation that will be understood and thus lived once realized within oneself through educating oneself, is that all life is one and thus equal as this principle lived. So the truth will be self evident within the system itself as all systems will be created and defined based on these two principles that will in itself, when lived to it’s full expression, will create in all ways a world that is best for all.
The statement of “I would be careful to believe that this is the only way to get there”, is within the very statement not accurate, as the equal money system will not be based or developed within beliefs, but within practical, factual, and thus provable through over time evidence that it will support all life and live best for all in all ways that honors the life that is within all, if it does not meet these two principles in honoring life equal and one within all, then it will be re-investigated and re-formed to come to a solution that will align with the principles of the system and thus as life. It’s to understand, that the transparency and thus openness of this system will be paramount within importance so all is known and thus understood by each one, so there can be no means for back deals or secret agendas, as all will be exposed and all will have to be proven in time to be effective in creating, no matter what the system consists of, what is best for all life.
Religious freedom will be a point of allowing those who want to hold onto their opinions/beliefs about religion/god be allowed within the implementation of the equal money system period, as it is understood that there will have to be a self process walked through seeing what religion/god is, is a self created design to not take self responsibility, and thus realize themselves within the understanding that what is best for all life is not something that will be given by any higher/ultimate force outside somewhere, but will be created by ourselves within the very way we live and treat each other. As what is best for all life lived in physical reality is the ultimate truth for all, and once this is realized that it is possible and starting to be created/walked within the equal money system, the God/Religion point will be let go of with more ease then is currently seen or understood within the system now of survival and fear.
La perfección la hemos hecho a un lado al desviar el principio y consideración de lo que es mejor para todos y buscando una ‘libertad individual’ que es lo que actualmente existe como ‘libre albedrío’ y ‘libre elección’ que no consideran en todo momento que todo cuanto hacemos, decimos y pensamos tiene consecuencia sobre la totalidad de cuanto existe. De esta manera, el libertinaje existe porque así lo hemos permitido hasta ahora; en el Sistema Igualitario Monetario, la libertad únicamente podrá existir si todos somos igualmente acreedores y participantes de este sistema en igualdad, esto implica que observaremos el abuso como una forma de obtener aquello que no era dado/ concedido incondicionalmente y que por ende era ‘buscado’ como un deseo de libertad – en este sistema igualitario, la libertad no será ya un anhelo, sino parte de la responsabilidad que tenemos unos hacia otros para asegurarnos de siempre hacer lo que es mejor para todos, eso es nuestra libertad.
El Sistema Igualitario Monetario es una plataforma para tomar responsabilidad de nuestro propio futuro y vidas, sin necesidad de sobrevivir ya. Por ende, movimientos religiosos eventualmente dejarán de existir, ya que el único valor reconocido será la vida misma existente en todo por igual. Ahora, si las religiones que queden no atentan sobre la unicidad e igualdad como la vida, entonces las personas podrán seguir haciendo uso a su religión de preferencia - sin embargo es claro entender que el principio de religión como tal pueda desaparecer una vez que no se tenga que creer en algo 'superior' o tener un grupo exclusivo para generar un bienestar a nivel de experiencia, ya que tal bienestar será la condición existente por default para todos en igualdad. Otro punto a considerar es que las religiones en su mayoría actualmente existen con base a un interés económico de ganancia - en el Sistema Igualitario Monetario al no existir tal ganancia, las religiones podrán develarse como negocio o permanecer como un punto genuino de apoyo al desarrollo humano en igualdad.
Within the Equal Money System, with the principles of oneness and equality, all people will be highly educated, as this is obvious within what is best for all, where all will have equal opportunity to get the best education possible as well as the opportunity of understanding how life works in many fields. Within this, the administrators for the education system will be based on who they are in terms of their expertise within the selected field of policy that one is developing and working on. Within the principle of the system as the oneness of all life, a global unity will develop and thus policies, in this case education policy, will be developed within the context of what is best for all people on a global scale. Also, to consider within regional practical considerations, this same principle will be walked within the different needs that may come up for one area that will not effect another, such as beach rules and regulations, the mountainous regions will not need to vote on this as it will not effect them. All policies created and developed will be voted on within consideration of implementation on a global scale or regional scale, so in essence, if it will effect one physically, practically speaking, then one will have the right to vote, as it will be one man one vote voting policy throughout.
There will be many ‘mistakes’ as we walk through the process of developing the areas of education, but within always looking at the practicality of what we study to better life in this world as well as developing the most effective human beings within creating the opportunity to fulfill their highest potential, we will eventually create the most optimum education system that will support all life through trail and error.
In the interim as the equal money system is coming into being and being implemented, we will have a populous that is not effectively educated as well as not educated at all. So thus we will have to find those who have proven within themselves and through time that they are trustworthy and effectively trained to walk the education policies in definition and administration, and once created and defined, these policies will be put to a vote within the same voting system of one man one vote. All will have to walk their process in taking the initiative to educate themselves in the responsibility of who we are as life and who we are to this world within aligning ourselves with solutions, instead of being part of the problem.
As we see now, the current system is based on profiteering within the education system where only a certain number are able to join the workforce to survive, because education is at a cost, and the system itself doesn’t support all equally, so life is diminished as well as extensively abused, and thus this world is not as effectively educated as it could be. So it will be a step by step process within walking a new education system, and those who have proven within themselves and to others through time that they are effective in the fields they go into as well as trustworthy, will be the policy creators and administers within the consideration of what is best for all life as this is the base foundational principle of the equal money system.
That’s correct – religion as we know it now would become simply become another aspect of discussion within the field of History.
The Equal Money System will allow Religious Freedom of Association as long as it does not impede on the Right to Life and Protection and Equal Distribution of Resources, or impede on the Fulfillment, Education and Lifestyle of Each Living Being on Earth.
Since education will be a focal point of the Equal Money System, many things that are not in support of Life, such as Beliefs in Higher Forces that remove the Self responsibility of Each Individual, will have to go.
If you read again the Goal, practically no religion existent at the moment fulfills All of these requirements, so they will slowly be weeded out from Human Consciousness as the perceived necessary Illusory Support in a World of Fear.
Once we as Humans will agree to take care of each other, God will no longer be required as an Idea and Belief and we will be able to let it go collectively.
Yet, forcing people at this stage of the implementation of a New System for Equality to abandon their perceived crouches can make many fall and use this point as a way to not take responsibility for What is Best for All, in defense of their own Opinion/Religion, so, since we have identified the correction of the Economic/Social System as the Primary Point to address, we won't do anything that stands in the way of total acceptance of a New System and this includes allowing to everyone the time to become educated and see for themselves that support is given to All Equally and the 'favors' of God are no longer required as we learn to stand as God of ourselves and this existence for Life and What is Best for All.
Everyone in the current system is a slave to a big logistical system that allocates resources / support to live on a basis of judgment as to who it worthy of even breathing and being alive in this world depending on whether you have / can get money. And - if you are a starving child of no value to the capitalist system as a slave that can be used in a job to make someone a profit - you are completely disregarded and left to die.
So - only the slave masters and those who support them will see an Equality based system as 'enslavement' - as an Equality based system would be taking away the ability of the Self Interested abusers of life, to abuse life for profit. Just as within the history of slavery in the united States, the slave owners saw the end of slavery as the 'taking away of my freedom to abuse others so that I don't have to do the work simply because I believe it is my right'.
Perhaps those in a position of having enough money to live comfortably in this world should take responsibility to stand in all dimensions of the system you accept and allow - such as the dimension of the person who gets paid minimum wage to work 40 or more hours a week cleaning the toilets of the rich because they were born into an circumstance where education and placement within a higher paying job was impossible - and ask yourself if such a system is in fact supporting the freedom for all to equally develop themselves and contribute to this world to their fullest potential -- so that you can make an informed and self honest evaluation of the goals presented in Equal Money, instead of resulting to sarcasm as a lazy attempt to belittle and discredit a perspective that challenged your self definition.
En el proceso de Educación, el respeto como el reconocimiento de ser uno e iguales será implícito debido a que todo ataque y competencia que ahora existe como método de supervivencia, será erradicado al no tener ya que 'luchar para vivir/ sobrevivir,' y en su lugar, valores de vida serán establecidos desde los primeros años de la existencia de cada individuo. Esto implica que los políticos del futuro por ahora tenemos que educarnos con base al principio de vida en Igualdad y reconocer que todos tenemos igual responsabilidad sobre el actual estado del mundo - con ello no será posible ya culpar y atacar, sino tomar responsabilidad y ser copartícipe de la solución.
The Equal Money System is not proposing to become anyone's Big Brother, because that would mean that people have not Self Realized the need for their own participation as Self Honest, Self Responsible parts within a system of Equality. We will lose the Freedom to abuse, but we don't see this as a point that anyone will miss, except the ones who are abusing and wish to continue to do so. Only Equality will give us the Freedom to Self Express, and the Freedom to Life, a Freedom that cannot be granted by Money and Fear, which only lead to the desire to Control others, Real Freedom can only be granted by us to us, when we will stop fearing each other as we stop fearing ourselves, once we stand up in and as the Self Correction that this world requires, walking our realignment to What is Best for All.
Yes, "The Equal Money System will allow Religious Freedom of Association as long as it does not impede on the Right to Life and Protection and Equal Distribution of Resources, or impede on the Fulfillment, Education and Lifestyle of Each Living Being on Earth. "
Your statement is coming from the frustration and disappointment from the current money system where science is a direct reflection of Greed and Profit and has nothing to do with the actual support of the Human Physical Body nor the Animals and Earth. As you've implied, what the health industries science shows nowadays is that they have no real and substantial clue of what the Human Physical Body actually required and if one look at the path of Money in that context - the research in terms of Health care always lead to someone's pocket as immense Profit and those who left behind are the mass that required the support.
The Equal Money policy in relation to Science is:
"Science in an Equal Money System will focus on the Principle of Directing the Living Experience for all to sustained fulfilment and Happiness as Quality Living."
Within the Equal Money System, where the guideline is Practical and Equal Support for ALL wherein profit and Greed do not play a part, Science as we know it today will dramatically change and the support for our Human Physical Body.
Thus, I suggest to further investigate the Equal Money System as it a tremendous change from the System that we are currently existing in. The Equal Money System encompass all Life aspects that required being addressed in order for us to have a physical LIFE that is BEST for all.
The Equality Point that is addressed within an Equal Money System is the Equality of Life, of Life having the same Worth/Value for each living being on the Planet as only as Equals we can be Free.
The Freedom you are talking about, which you are expressing as the 'Ideal' of Free Markets, is a stronghold (stranglehold) of Capitalism, a system that since its foundation has only managed to exponentially increase the divide between rich and poor while creating extensive, unnecessary, suffering, proving to be neither sustainable nor humane.
On the contrary to the Equal Money System, Capitalism means that who has more, decides more, trades more, accumulates more and ends up with more Freedom and Life Worth than another, which is the point that is creating Inequality in this world, Capitalism is Not Freedom, because unless you have Money you are not even Free to Live, it seems that we have taken this Abuse as far as we could if Money has replaced Life as the Worth and Capital of this World.
So it is natural that the 'right to Free Trade', meaning allowing the Elite with Money to Trade the resources of the Earth abusing the system for the purpose of Self Interest and Greed, will no longer be possible within an Equal Money System, nor it will be necessary and ultimately not even desired at the individual level, once everyone has access to everything they need and Resources are managed Globally for What is Best for All.
There is no contradiction between any of the Goals of the Equal Money System as there is One Principle that runs throughout all the outlined Policies, and that is aiming at 'What is Best for All', in all fields of existence, so no, you will no longer be allowed the freedom to Abuse, nor will I or anyone else, yet we will All Acquire the Right to an Equally Dignified Life within a System Of Support, to Equal Access to Shelter, Education, Health care and the Right to Equally share All the Resources of the Planet, the Right to in fact become shareholders of this planet at all effects and not be mere stakeholders subject to the Power of the Few with Money that make the world go round, and we'll have the right to not have to spend our lives labouring to make a Living, as Life will be supported from Birth to Death Equal and One for every living Being in the World.
Within an Equal Money System, we are looking at a process of re-education of the human, Concept and practices such as religion, are extensively programmed within the human psyche over generations, therefore to align everyone to common sense and the removal of survival based ideologies, will take time. Therefore if people would like to initially continue practicing a religion, they may do so, as long as it is does not impede on the freedoms of others and practical functioning of the society.
In EMS religions won’t have power to make political decisions as the political decision will solely be based on practical common –sense consideration of what is best for all. Religion will also not be part of any educational system – It will take in its rightful position next to cultural ideologies.
Also note that religions itself do not promote violence or intolerance, they’re merely used as tools by certain individuals to incite violence and intolerance as these individuals twist the words of prophets and saints for their own self-interest or self-belief of achieving a certain goal within society. Religions are often used as tools to either motivate masses to break out of oppression and/or poverty or is used to suppress people into accepting their current life situation, in the belief that a ‘higher power’ is responsible for the life. Remove poverty and struggling and the human will eventually no longer require a belief system protecting them from their reality. The EMS will address oppression through poverty in its core and us such religions will no longer have to be used as tools of violence or manipulation.
The delusion of ownership as private property according to having placed a price tag upon life, is the actual religion that’s being currently followed and revered. Hence, the basic principle of the Equal Money System in this aspect implies that there can be no imposition of power - exertion of abuse - over others, as you will understand and realize that any form of harm inflicted toward/ against other(s), is in fact against yourself.
Within this, you can only fight to defend your own limitations of which ownership forms a part of and will not exist in the Equality System any longer. Thus through realizing we can give to each other what we require unconditionally, we will in fact establish freedom in equality, which means: no harm or abuse is allowed toward another as there is no need to – only an ego possession would want to aimlessly do that, which will then be sorted out with effective individual psychological support to ensure no being is harmed from a personal delusion of power and control over life.
Within the current money system, freedom is dependent on how much money you have and is based solely on self-interest, without consideration of the consequences of our choices on the lives of others. Within an Equal Money System all will be given equal opportunities to live based on equal provision of basic needs as well as the equal opportunity to express yourself within the context of what is best for all. By doing this we are removing self-interest, through which freedom is actually limited as, in the current system, people are living ‘freedom’ as an expressing of ourselves according to what we want, not taking into consideration how our actions affect others.
In an Equal Money System one of the primary principles we will be working with, is the point of self-responsibility within the freedom each will have. This means that we will as humanity decide what from the past we would like to keep, based on what is supportive of all beings and does not cause harm. This will become the freedom all can live based on what is best for all, through which we take each other and the planet and the animal kingdom into consideration. Currently ‘freedom’ is an expression of ‘what I want’ regardless of the consequences. Laws, regulations and controls in an Equal Money System, will be designed to serve all the participants and will be in the absolute minimum amount necessary for people to co-exist effectively in every given moment.
While taking self-responsibility for ones actions and living the principle of what is best for all, we transform the world to a place where we are free to express ourselves within what will be termed real freedom of expression; as one will not be limited by money and power to be able to express oneself freely. The term ‘freedom’ therefore should also not be confused with ‘free to do anything’ as living within the principle of what is best for all you will see that certain perceived ‘freedoms’ today is actually abusive behavior. As the self-responsibility of each participant expands we will be able to remove even more laws and regulations as they will become unnecessary.
The only law will be what is best for all which will indeed ensure the protection of everyone’s rights provided they do not infringe on anyone else’s rights. So, one’s rights will not ‘end,’ as one’s rights are a constant and consistently stable point of the right to express and move oneself within what is best for all. What will ‘end’ is one’s ‘right’ to exert their own ego within self-interest.
