“The problem with Fascism or communism or any other type of system, is that corruption is always present. You cannot have a pure type of system as it is defined because you have leaders that abuse the system.
But there is one way to have the best system. You have a system where only the people, by popular vote, decide on the laws made by a congress. We, collectively, become the president. All laws are passed or vetoed by our vote. That is the only way to a better system.”

The Bipolar Paradigm
We have been conditioned to think in either black or white terms such as having to define a system as being the extreme left or right, blue or red, black or white, communist or capitalist, and as such, we’ve remained separated from simply considering how we can fund our right to life – and instead, have remained divided and conquered to allow a few to take the control over the ‘irreconcilable differences between the people’ which is part of the reasons why we still can’t agree on one single point as the definition of common wellbeing, because we are taught and indoctrinated to always affiliate to one side of the polarity as part of our identity, as who we are and what we stand for, what we believe in. It is by no coincidence that there is mostly a bipartisan structure in countries giving the illusion of choice and diversity, as this is how we have remained divided and conquered, by opposing one another through ideologies, beliefs, charismatic leaders, ‘exceptionalist’ ideologies that leads to supremacy and ultimately a real abuse of power – but, it’s not to see ‘those in power’ as the ones to blame, but rather let’s point our finger back at each one of us that have allowed this creation, abuse and corruption of our lives (our power) as it exists now.
I agree with this comment I placed at the beginning, which was placed in one of my videos about how some tend to create tags for political movements such as ‘fascism’ or ‘communism’ when one talks about providing a Living Income as a guaranteed human right to be supported to live and have higher wages as well.
The problem is when one speaks about ‘everyone’s wellbeing’ or ‘collective benefits’ and ‘our share of the economy’ and is immediately tagged as being ‘socialist’ or ‘communist’ within the derogative sense of these words, which have been quite useful to provoke fear, resistance or repulsion when it comes to protecting the most hideous form of capitalism we’re living in today, wherein the infamous 1 percent owns most of the wealth of the entire world, which is also part of our ‘defeated’ belief system, because power does not reside in gold bars or green papers, the real capital is the human being, the work we can do and what we can do with our resources: let’s never forget that – nor is this implying that ‘capitalism is bad’ as in itself, capitalism as any system can be made functional and supportive for everyone, if it is applied with certain points of support that enable greater transparency and integrity in its mechanism. }
A system by definition is a structure with defined processes and functions that we have designed and created, as the system works no different to how we make decisions individually: always – or most of the times – seeking after our own interest. It is not as if our current world-system including how government operates, how our monetary and banking system operates, how our education system operates ‘came alive’ as a sui generis godly creation: we have all co-created and participated in the existence of this system as is, and that’s certainly the first point of responsibility we have to it, just like a child that we have allowed to grow with only the influence of a few, without providing any guidance or support by being ourselves the examples of how to be the best human being one can be. This is how and why the government and our world-system is the image and likeness of our denial to collective responsibility, to take care of our own wellbeing.
Why does Corruption exist?
Or better said: why is corruption possible in a system? A system in itself should be perfect, just imagine if your browser would suddenly act in self-interest and decide that today it doesn’t want to open up your email because it would like to take some time off – or even nature, birds don’t take the ‘day off’ to not sing every morning at the same time – both your computer and nature are also systems and we as human beings are also functional systems that we have actually corrupted through our personal desires, wants and needs above this essential functionality to keep an optimum system operating. This means that we’ve made the system corruptible due to this, we have accepted to give way to our desires for more money/more power and as such more protection for a few, and have always pondered our self interest above everyone’s interests as well, even if such self interest means remaining opposing a system that we all collectively created.
“It’s THEM that must change, not me”
Back to the point. The question is: have we looked at ourselves in the mirror when pondering ‘Why are our government officials ‘greedy and blame them for the ills of the world?’ And why they follow their own interest above the collective wellbeing?
Greed is the foundation of the so called ‘American Dream’ that our current capitalist system has been founded on, one that is entirely divorced with the notion of common well-being, since for someone to ‘have more’ a few others have to have less in order to keep the ‘less wealthy/poor ones’ working for the ones that have most of the money. And so, we have all collectively legitimized this current state of affairs, which I would say is actually a fascist one, where we have allowed our self-interest to dictate about collective common sense and wellbeing, so it’s not just a term to name some dictators of the past since each one of us exists as such characters the moment that we only seek to do things our way, and follow only our own interest, our own comfort which also includes the comfortable zone of arguing ‘there’s No solution to this world, to humanity’ or ‘we can’t change, we’re born this way’ – these are ideological weapons of mass disruption, to believe we are ‘doomed by the system’ which is in fact our creation, our habits, our desires, our needs made as ‘the system,’ it is our reflection as human beings.
Mirror, mirror = my error
Yes, it’s in each one of us, and it is actually a key point to understand in order to be able to create the perfect transparency and integrity that we often ask the governments to be or become for us – But, where is our own integrity? Do we also participate in this constant desire for more money even if we already have enough? Do we constantly seek to escalate our social-status? Do we always dream of how nice our lives would be ‘if we had all the money in the world and not have to work and have everything being done for us?
The answer is, yes. This only means that a few have turned such desires into their reality, while the rest of us still keep them in mind – sometimes secretly – and only complain about those that did manage to get it all. That’s how revolutions or dissident groups mostly stem from an actual desire of power, instead of a conscious decision to reform, restructure and change the ways in which we operate the system as a whole, to the benefit of everyone.
Occupy The System
This is also how the infamous appealing protest movement ‘the 1% vs. the 99%’ only points out the consequential outflows of our original sin, which is having disregarded each other as living beings with the right to be supported unconditionally to live in the best sustainable manner. The problem is not only the accumulation of wealth and its distribution, but how we have created and recreated the same hierarchical system that requires a lot more than just ‘removing power from those in elite position’ or ‘shutting down some corporations’ since such hierarchical mentality, the value systems and personal preferences are embedded within each one of us as the way we think and relate to one another, as the belief in the forms of of ‘added value’ which is also why we have remained divided and conquered ‘asking’ for change instead of becoming it.
The solution is actually to step into politics, taking responsibility for our lives and becoming active participants in public matters – which is what we have all mostly ‘despised’ due to how we’ve judged politics to be ‘disgusting’/non-reliable/a joke/ a reality show when in fact, this is also part of the perfect traps as to why we are not uniting with a common goal and form new political parties around the globe to tackle the problem at its root: the political, governmental, monetary and education systems. This is part of the solutions that must take place if we want to see a real change in society: it won’t come from our current ‘elected officials.’
Democracy for the first time ever
Yes, Democracy as the noble illusion of people deciding the course of their collective wellbeing has never really existed, which is why any form of direct democracy has either been misused/corrupted or superimposed by so-called representative democracies, which in effect lose the decision-making power each one of us have. We most certainly have to collectively become our government – not just a few that ‘have all the power’ as we’ve allowed it be thus far – and as such, Direct Democracy is part of our main proposals as well because we agree that the current mostly bipolar political establishments in every country, create the belief of choice and diversity, when in fact the agenda is and has been the same for ages: benefiting the few while disregarding and leaving the majority out. So, it is about time we step in into politics with the genuine realization that if we unite – and stop being divided and conquered – within a single outcome that is best for all, we will achieve the necessary strength to better the system, we can’t continue being divided.
Main Political Proposal: To establish a Living Income Guaranteed Model
The way to unite is to create new political parties around the globe that can advocate a Living Income Guaranteed system as part of each Nation’s plan to stabilize their economy, expand the ‘power structure’ to every person as well as ourselves, the people, becoming the direct decision-makers involved and participating in the creation of new structural reforms that can make our economies sustainably strong and competitive, as well as enhancing everyone’s working and living experience.
So, to begin with these and other structural changes in the system, we first require to provide money to people that have non and give higher wages to people that work, to provide a Living Income to everyone living out of miserable pension plans or topped with great debt, which psychologically makes a human being unstable, unable to think properly, as fear of not having money gnaws your entire being every day that your next meal is not secured. Providing the security and right to live will enable us to empower each other with time and resources to best educate ourselves about how the system operates and where we can suggest and establish changes, collectively.
Do we want to stop this crime we are collectively committing against ourselves? I say, yes, we do – but we have not yet gathered to establish a solution of How to do so. This is why Living Income Guaranteed is a plan of immediate application to support everyone to get back on their own two feet, to eradicate poverty, to improve one’s education, skills and productivity with higher wages and at the same time, and letting those currently in power know that they too depend on the majority and as such, must support back with better wages, better labor conditions and more share for collective benefit, since this is what human rights are all about.
We all can do this, for sure – and let’s keep in mind that money in itself is Not the problem – it is about us now gathering to create, promote and establish solutions through fresh new political parties created by each one of us seeing and agreeing with the common sense of providing each other the right to life and secure our livelihood to then, have the time, resources and sufficient education to understand the problem and address the solutions that we should all collectively work on as a priority in our lives.
Change won’t happen overnight, but it is already starting here, a solution that addresses our right to life as human beings and our ability to participate, get involved and change how the current system operates, step by step.
