2012: The supply and demand religion

Ok, so today I would like to introduce you to something that we all heard throughout our lives, and that we all have a basic understanding of – which is the basis of the (so called) free market, which is: supply and demand. The point is quite cool to have a look at to really understand the differentiation between economy in terms of what is really going on with money, goods, services and lives – and economic theories and ideologies.

Supply and demand – if you have some conversations with people who tend to discuss economic subjects and defending this point – is seen as a form of equality on which our economy is based on. What I mean by that, is that it is perceived as some kind of a “natural law” or “natural balance” of “how things work” in this reality in terms that people apparently get paid based on the support that they provide for their fellow citizens. Where for instance one person is a carpenter, and make tables – as it’s his job, and someone else is for instance a dentist that fixes other people teeth and so every job that ‘supplies’ an actual service that there is a ‘demand’ for, is being a part of the process of exchange of goods and services and according to the level of demand for the services or goods he provides – he is getting paid. Which is basically the ideology and the theory of the free market, which entails a sense of “equality” within that – because you’re getting paid according to how you’re ‘supplying’ the ‘demand’, which is nothing else then working towards satisfying the needs of others – therefore should create a state where everyone has a chance, as long as they support their fellow human beings.

In reality this tacitly implied idea of equality that is being carried with the economic ideology of supply and demand is non-existent. Why is that? Well, because people aren’t equal in “the playing field”. What that means? It means that the whole utopian ideology of supply and demand – first of all – doesn’t consider wealth in it’s airy-fairy approach of “work hard, and you’ll succeed”. And I mean, I am not only talking about some having more money then others – that is obvious – what I mean here is that even the resources on our planet are privately owned. So it’s not even that someone has less money then the other guy, and is having problems with starting something themselves – they actually have to buy the resources that in the first place wasn’t owned by no one, as they came from the earth.

And to understand this a bit better, you have to have a look at reality, and how this world functions. Because we tend to believe that money is the most relevant resource in this world (because that is how it seems in our personal lives) – but if we really investigate it to it’s root, it’s nothing more then paper that we just agreed upon as a means of trade. The real value is in work, the real value is in resources, items and services that makes our lives work, makes it comfortable, and give us the ability to eat, be healthy and provide us with what we require to develop and work with things (like tools and equipment). In all this, money is just the exchanging material that is valid only because of the exchange mechanism that we agree upon.

And based on understanding that, have a look now at how the actual values in this world are resources, goods and services – because they are what makes our lives tick. And from that perspective we can notice that the tacitly implied equality in the ideology of supply and demand is fake, as those with wealth, are able to generate more wealth and those without it, are forced to struggle and do whatever they must to get their cut of the resources/services/goods they require – else they aren’t able to live, or are forced to live at a very low or inhumane standard of life. Therefore it is relevant to realize that the ideology of supply and demand of how apparently everything works together in unison, has nothing to do with reality, as it creates a fake tacitly implied idea of equality through labor while not considering resources in that at all. It’s also pretty funny that the ideology of capitalism is based on the same idea as the communistic ideology which is that we can be equal through labor – isn’t it? But going back to the discussion, this utopian idea of supply and demand and how it ‘should’ work apparently doesn’t consider resources, which come from the earth – meaning everyone has equal rights to them. Which reveals the scam and the flaw that this ideology approves of when practically applied, which seems to not be taken in consideration when people approach supply and demand ideologically – instead of how it actually works in fact and what it practically implies.

Currently resources are privately owned – meaning that we’re not equal, and we aren’t able to equalize ourselves through labor in capitalism. Some may get lucky and win a “jackpot” and get to a position of having wealth – then they might see the system as fair. But that’s all just because of the movement of wealth. And in all that, I haven’t even talked about how people have different physical disabilities or dysfunctions, and learning abilities as well. Obviously in our current free market system, based on the ideological concept of supply and demand – such points are deciding about who has a decent life, and who doesn’t. Who can take care of themselves, and who will die. Yes, even though there are some institutions and laws that try to in some way fix some of the flaws in this area – it’s pretty much a very general and flawed way of support. It obviously doesn’t equalize the playing field, it just “support the less fortunate” to a degree. But no one is noticing that they aren’t less fortunate because there is something wrong with them – they are less fortunate because our lives are governed by a cruel system based on a flawed ideology that benefits the egos of some, while sucking others dry, and using them as slaves or let them die – when they aren’t of any use.

In fact this is not an ideological issue, or a religious issue, or an opinion issue, or whatever issue somebody may make out of it – just to deny the reality of what’s going and turn it into an argument (as it has been proven multiple times with responses I’ve seen towards the Equal Money System). This issue that we’re facing is a result of our collective allowance. And don’t get me wrong here – yes, supply and demand is an ideology – but it’s not the problem of the ideology itself that we’re faced with. The ideology is just a way to deceive for some, and for others to deceive themselves, to run away from what we’ve allow to happen every day.

The reality is that people are killed, people are made slaves, people are humiliated and abused – I am not even talking about the animals because this is to extensive to mention here. The reality is that it’s going on constantly and continuously, and there is no ‘easy’ solution that would be just a handy ideology on which we could rebuilt this hell again. We don’t need revolutions through conflict or war, because they doesn’t change anything, and will not change anything (why aren’t we learning from history?). What we require is to actually start considering those that are ‘below us’ in the food chain. What we require is to become self-honest with what we’re doing, what is around us, who we influence, how we contribute to what is going on, how we accept abuse in our lives, how we accept abuse in the world. And then within realizing that step by step, on an individual level – learn to change into a way of living that would be best for all. Many people talk about 2012, new age, ascension and things like that. But we don’t need to ascend, and we don’t have anywhere to ascend to. We already destroy our environment and others in an attempt to run away from this world and our lives, and what we don’t accept or don’t want to see in ourselves. We already create and live within our egos, which are imagined, and made up ideas of ‘who we are’ according to how we create them. We don’t need to ascend, we already are ascended where we are able to have comfort in expense of others – through abusing other life forms, and having slaves. What we require is to become real, and do something with what we’ve been trying to run away from for so long. And that is ourselves, and what we accept in our own lives and in ourselves. Only this way, through self-honesty, we are able to see what is real. And only then in self-honesty, we are able to forgive ourselves for what we’ve accepted and allowed within ourselves, and for what we’ve been a part of in this world.

 Equal Money is not a set system, or something ideologically based. Yes it is not – however someone might see it. Equal Money means equalizing the way of distribution of goods and services. It has nothing to do with ideologies or utopias – which many people accuse it to be. Which is pretty much mind boggling to see, because we currently live in a system based on an ideology of supply and demand, and that ideology as every ideology is utopian in nature, as it’s just a theory. In reality it creates enormous inequality and abuse. And just because this ideology doesn’t work, we believe that it’s unavoidable? Come on, are we that stupid? We base our economic system, the system that govern our life on some theory/ideology of “how it should work”, and it doesn’t work like we want. And then we assume that it’s impossible to do it better? While it’s simple that ideologies cannot work practically, because they are just ideologies. What we need is to really take into consideration the needs of every living being, and create a logistic structure so that everything is taken care of sufficiently. That is Equal Money, it’s a common sense approach to how to practically solve this bowl of shit that is called economy currently. To take out the ideologies, and “talking heads” as politicians, that only make a show – and set up a system through democratic means of finding ways and solutions that would be best for all. Is that a big task? Yes. Is that impossible? No. So what the fuck are we thinking?

I mean, this is really fucked up, and I don’t see any valid reason why we shouldn’t come to an agreement once and for all, and realize that we have the means (internet) to utilize real democracy – where the majority rule is decided by the majority and not by few. It is already technologically possible, to get together and decide on a system not based on ideology. And the solution is simple. It has been proposed for some time by Desteni already. Let’s agree to a principle that is universal. Let’s agree to a principle that is simple and practical, and that benefits all equally. Let’s agree to something most of us already would agree if we haven’t been traumatized by the survival systems of deception and greed. And that is simply practical equality, which is agreeing that every decision should be based on what is BEST FOR ALL – equally. And such a system requires real democracy, so if you’re up for change – and you realize the flawed system that made a prison out of this planet through our own acceptance where we chosen are egos and greed over life – start developing yourself in self-honesty, and learn to forgive yourself, and start again to give yourself a chance and to give everyone and everything else a chance. It’s really up to us, and it has always been up to us. The governments are here, because we don’t want to take self-responsibility, it’s like with children that require governance. We don’t have to live this way, but first we have to realize our equality, stop our grown out of proportion egos and become self-responsible.

No more defense mechanisms in an Equal Money System – FAQ

Defense mechanism is a term primarily coming from psychology, but probably most people would have at least one example of a defense mechanism popping up in their head, when hearing the term – and it would more or less probably still fit the definition of defense mechanism. I’m saying that, because we face many situations in everyday life where we face examples of defense mechanisms of others or our own, or even see it in completely different areas, like for instance animals having specific behavioral defense mechanisms that they use to survive a confrontation with a predator. In essence defense mechanisms are behavioral or psychological (and often mixture of both) patterns of reactionary behaviors or/and mental processes.

 Now, the topic of this writing is the end of the whole phenomena of defense mechanism in an Equal Money System. And if you’ve studied and followed what the Equal Money System is, you will already realize how the implementation of an Equal Money System will lower the fear of survival factor, in all areas of life, and for living beings generally – and thus it will obviously cause defense mechanisms to become for a very big part useless. And if they will become useless, then the best way to live would be to actually live, and not be so much concerned about defending yourself. And if you find that a bit ‘too much positive attitude’, and that people will not change so easily – have a look at the following. Defense mechanisms are coming from the initial danger that is there. They are all a response to living within an environment where there is a threat against which defense is required. Thus, we are practically, constantly building up all kinds of defenses against what can happen, because we are aware such things can happen. And it is both the physical practical ones (like hitting someone back when we get hit), or the psychological ones, where we are for instance fearing being honest to someone, because they can take advantage of that, or where we are constantly ready to being attacked in some way by someone and in that, being ready to respond to that verbal attack in a similar way. Now have a look at the following – in the past, it was a normal thing that people would fortify their towns or villages – because there was always a threat of some other unknown or rival tribe attacking them for instance. People used to travel with having a sword or a gun by their belt all the time, or even wearing armor if we’re talking about medieval times. You can obviously go forth with that and research history on this point of defenses that people have been setting up – because there was a threat existent, and how many of such defenses became non-existent.. 

Obviously now many of those things seems pretty silly. And the reason why is that – is because the threats have changed. Therefore we no longer require a defense mechanism like that. It simply became obsolete as the situation changed. And that is exactly what will happen to all defense mechanisms in an Equal Money System through time. When the threat will be dealt with – the defense mechanism will become useless, and will die out naturally. So for instance the first generation living under the Equal Money System will still have the remembrance of living in a system where money and goods are scarce – therefore they will still have certain defense mechanisms within them that will require to be released, but may be there till the rest of their lives to the point of fearing poverty or lack. But the new generation of children might see that as something surreal or bizarre, because for them it will be simply something from a history book. 

And the same goes with any other threat that exists. If we’re talking about defense mechanisms towards people, like fearing to be verbally attacked, or judged, or being abused in some way. It all depends on the threat that is existent. When we’ll be able to get rid of some of the threats that we currently have (like the economic one) we will move on with working on other threats. And we will intensively look at prevention of any kinds and forms of abuse. So that we can stop such things in very early stages, so that people won’t have to develop defense mechanisms, and all kinds of issues that will later on cause them to have irrational fears or anxieties. It will all be part of the process we will all take part in, after establishing Equal Money. So that we can actually live a life with minimized threats, and where all forms of mental disorders where people go into abusing others around them, will be sorted out when happening, and hopefully prevented before any serious harm is done. And that’s how – we’ll get rid of the threats, and with getting rid of the threats we’ll get rid of the defense mechanisms that we develop because of the threats that we try to defend ourselves from.

No more family drama! About nothing – Equal Money System FAQ

According to my understanding of the phrase family drama – it stands for troublesome situations and problems within the family in relation to the family that are created out of thin air – meaning that it is blowing things out of proportion, and through reactions of the family members making nothing into a big deal, or when facing a real problem – making it worse through the same process. I’m starting with my definition of the phrase, because it seems to be quit a new phrase in use, and I haven’t been able to find an exact and precise definition of it.

What family drama has to do with money? And also what does it has to do with the change of the money system to a system of equality? Well, basically the family unit currently functions as a survival unit – we no longer live in ‘packs’ as animals do, we now have families, and family connections serve the same purpose. So the underlying function of the family is survival. And because there is such an underlying cause as survival, it causes people to suppress all kinds of reactions and prevents them from expressing themselves, because of the point of survival. Meaning that people just ‘shut their mouths’, because it’s easier to just ’get by’ and accept whatever is coming their way from and within the family, because that way they will have support and won’t risk losing it.

Now in terms of why and how all kinds of family drama is created – it is because the suppressed stuff (that I have just mentioned) has to have an outflow somewhere. So all the reactions, suppressed emotions, feelings of blame, jealousy etc. etc. etc. that is accumulated within family members, because they suppress it because they know that they have to depend on their family, because it’s their base survival unit – is simply having an outflow in situations of family drama. In such moments all the suppressed stuff gets an opportunity to ‘get out’ in a way that is somehow justified. It’s actually no different to any kind of suppression, it all works in the same way – the suppressed stuff will find another way of ‘getting out’.

Now, what Equal Money will change in this matter is much wider then just the point of survival, because it will also provide education on the matter, and will change the total environment of the human. But by sticking only to the point that I’ve taken on to write about in this blog – the survival point, that is underlying the functioning of family will be out of the picture. Meaning that people won’t ‘have to’ accept certain points, because they will be able to live themselves. Obviously children will still require care, but after a certain age people will be able to just live by themselves, and won’t have to live with family members that are harming them through not dealing with their own problems. And also the whole survival thing within families – except for taking care of children and family members that are unable to take care of themselves – will change, as people will not be financially dependent on their family members in anyway whatsoever. So people will not just try to keep relations with family members for the sake of survival, and thus therefore the self-suppression just because of survival within families – will be no more. And without the suppressions – that are the fuel of the whole phenomena of family dramas – they will run out of fuel, meaning that the very reason why they happen will be depleted. So it will be stopping the problem in it’s very root, and thus it will bring permanent change, which will be the end of all the unnecessary family drama – which will then become pathological event, and not everyday life.

And also, because the survival will no longer be a matter of family, the underlying function of family will be of support. Not financial support, but real support. Now that is distorted, because the survival overwrites the aspect of support for which the family should be there for. A support between equals, without suppressed emotions, resistances, and gossip – that is the change that the Equal Money System will bring forth to what family is. Investigate what we’re all about, and join the solution, because no one else is going to save the world, or for that matter – destroy it (as in the 2012 prophecies). It has always been only us that has been here, having an impact on what’s here – all of us collectively, and as we’ve managed to create of this world a hell for many and a heaven for few, we could just as well make it into a heaven for everyone and everything.
