“A different system could indeed be created if only the resistance of the few and the ignorance of the many could be overcome. The financial system as it currently stands, indeed the whole economic and social way of life that we have been taught – erroneously – is the only one possible, is profoundly immoral and completely fails to provide adequately for the needs of of the vast majority of Earth’s population.
A Guaranteed Basic Income is a very good start but that, in my opinion, can only be a beginning. And not just for our economic system but the very way in which we view the world and our attitudes to both other people and the environment itself needs to change too.
Thumbs up to you and this video!” – YouTube User view1st comment from the video Not Enough Money for a Living Income?
I agree. Too often we wait for others to suddenly realize ‘we must change the system we live in,’ but the reality is that those of us that already see and understand this necessity, must stand up, speak up and work together to let others know too, because money is something that we all require to live, and only the very few at the current ‘top’ can be certain – for now – of having no financial woes; the rest of us, we all know that middle class is being diluted to an even greater extent. Let’s consider this: the normalization of poverty is already a violation of our Fundamental Human Rights, which proves that we have all been ‘ignorant’ as such for allowing fellow humans – and all living beings that are affected by such human negligence – to go hungry, homeless, jobless, education less, health-care less and deprived of any genuine ‘right to life.’
A ‘Bill of Rights’ is essentially
“a list of the most important rights to the citizens of a country. The purpose of these bills is to protect those rights against infringement. The term “bill of rights” originates from England, where it refers to the Bill of Rights enacted by Parliament in 1689, following the Glorious Revolution, asserting the supremacy of Parliament over the monarch, and listing a number of fundamental rights and liberties.”
For now we won’t go as far as discussing how ‘government’ is an euphemism to old-age monarchs, emperors, dictators and plutocrats creating ‘the laws and ways of the system’ that we simply complied to and have recreated for our entire history as human beings. But, isn’t it gullible to call a document a ‘Bill of Rights’ when it is a set of rules to ‘protect yourself from infringement’ which means they exist within the premise of living under a constant threat of being a ‘victim’ to the ‘the abuse of power’ and among fellow enemies? Yes, and it astounds me that this is not yet realized as such.
Some patriots may rejoice in reciting The Bill of Rights, some others may not even be aware of them. But the fact is that a genuine Bill of Rights should not be founded upon this conflictive and antagonistic premise that leaves all genuine Fundamental Human Rights aside, such as the Right to Life, to have a Living Income to live in Dignity, to have access to Universal Healthcare, to have a House, to have Water, Clothes, Food, Education, Work and the benefits that come with such balanced physical wellbeing which is being able to co-operate in a functional society that maintains these Rights as the foundation for any form of societal-management – be it a government, a cooperative network, direct democracy, etc. None of these essential physical elements to live in dignity are mentioned in a ‘Bill of Rights’ and many could claim that this is so because we all are granted with the Human Rights as promulgated by the United Nations… well, they look great on paper, but they are certainly “not worth the paper they are written on” as one wise man told me, and it is so, because they have never been implemented at a governmental level which means, mandatory level in any nation of this world –therefore they are ‘dead words’ because without money to finance the provision of our right to life: those words, our human rights, cannot be applied into reality.
Living Income Guaranteed by Equal Life Foundation is certainly not only ‘giving money to everyone,’ but the economic and political foundation to make of it a sustainable provision of our Right to Life. This is also why LIG is also based on a new foundation for human principles and values written out in a whole new Bill of Rights, declaring the recognition of Life in Equality, which means that the provision of a Living Income is the way to ensure that no one ever goes hungry, homeless, in debt, healthcare less, jobless or resorts to crime as a result of not being granted their right to life in the form of a Living Income Guaranteed.
Providing our Right to Life through Money with a Living Income is the very first step to get ourselves as humanity back on the first track, the very first stone we missed in our so-called ‘evolutionary process,’ which can’t be actually so when we spend billions of dollars sponsoring wars, explorations to mars, exploitative world-sports reunions, propaganda for consumerism, sports/celebrity contracts, bailing out banks, inflating an air-backed money making system, bribing MP’s/congress people, building nuclear weapons – or waging wars to ‘look after them’ – scientific diversion, fracking horrors, droughts, invasions in the name of ‘democracy,’ financial scams on education and the list could go on, unfortunately, endlessly –we all are equally participants for allowing this and no, it is not yet ‘too late’ to do something about it – you can in fact begin by clicking on each term above and reading further to see the amount of money that is wasted, misused, misdirected or amassed in the name of profit – not human progress to support life on Earth.
Also Living Income Guaranteed is the very first step to get ourselves to have a level of support that will enable everyone that is currently having no time to investigate solutions to our economy – due to having to be working 2-3 jobs to be able to make a living – have sufficient time to educate ourselves and each other on further solutions that will slowly but surely also have to take place as a natural progression out of our current inflated-as-a-bubble economic system, so that we can stop inflating our reality and start working with the real capital which is ourselves. human beings, working together to make the best use of the resources we have available and our intellectual and physical capacities to create a system that supports and enables life on Earth. Inequality can be reduced when we start regulating the terms that don’t benefit the majority in our current capitalist system, it is possible.
