I have a Masters degree in Philosophy (2007) from the Free University of Brussels & currently I am studying Law at the University of Ghent
In this article I will discuss the notion of ‘property’, and propose a solution for how the institution of property can be changed in an Equal Money System.
Currently property is a form of control that we have created because our society is based on fear and more precisely fear of loss. This means that we have accepted ‘property’ as a means to ‘protect’ ourselves against each other, because of the underlying belief that there is not enough for everyone. Interestingly the word pro...Continue »
It is interesting that when a country like Greece faces a high debt deficit – it is immediately regarded as an infected country – whereas a country like the US with a 12 trillion dollar debt – can without problems maintain its ‘financial position’ in the world.
This as an obvious indicator that the economy isn’t real.
There is now a popular trend that Greece should leave the Euro and possibly return to a national currency, which is causing alarm from the other ...Continue »
Last week we received two different brochures in the mailbox where one was originating from the town administration, sharing the great achievements that had been done for the town of Ghent in terms of leisure projects and public construction, which are all points that are said to add to the value of Ghent as a place to live – while the other brochure was amongst others exposing how the town administration was actually wasting money on such projects while the town is actually fa...Continue »
I had the opportunity to see the documentary Waiting for Superman a while ago, which talks about the American school system and exposes the mechanisms that keep the quality of education in America in a very bad state.
A large amount of numbers are shown in this movie to establish that yes, the United States are dealing with a serious problem throughout their education, causing massive amounts of children to drop out of school and causing the overall population to be poor...Continue »
I was looking at the desire for fame and how this currently exists in the world.
I then asked myself, will such desire still exist in and Equal Money System? And if not – then why not?
I came to the conclusion that the desire for fame as it currently exists, actually expresses lack of self-acceptance. In fact, a form of absolute self-worthlessness – that one will try to compensate through the desire to be or become famous.
When looking at the question of self-value ...Continue »
This is a quote taken from Jose Graziano de Silva’s submission program – who has now taken the office of Director General in the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.
“During its 65 years of life, FAO can claim to have contributed to a remarkable growth in food output. Average per capita food availability has risen by 40%. Enough food is now being produced to meet the needs of all of the world’s population that has risen in the past 65 years from 2.5 billion to almos...Continue »
In an Equal Money System ‘politicians’ as such will not exist – but there will be positions that need to be taken where a certain level of responsibility is required. These positions will be filled based on democratic elections – and the best way to describe such a function would be that of an ‘administrator’ rather than a ‘leader’. An important aspect of such a function is that one will only be allowed to do it for 1 term – which would be 1 or 2 years, after which a new administrator ...Continue »
Starvation is currently accepted as one of the conditions of humanity’s earthy existence. It is presented as being part of being here.
“This earthly existence is simply too tough to manage – and there is simply no other way but to abuse each other for at least ‘a majority’ to be able to ‘prosper’”.
What is not realized is that all the conditions that are perceived as being the limitations and harsh conditions of “this earthy existence” are actually the result of deliberate...Continue »
At the moment the Vatican is literally a state within a state – an entity with it’s own government and its own ‘guard’– where the pope holds the ‘power’ of an ‘absolute monarch’ – combining executive, legislative and judicial power, which makes him the last remaining ‘absolute monarch’ in Europe.
Therefore within an Equal Money system – from a legal perspective – the Vatican will be ‘dissolved’, just like all other borders and nations.
The papacy will be ‘deleted’ as a pos...Continue »
What needs to be understood when answering this question – is that laws in the current system are written to protect the system and never to support the individual. They only have a function and purpose in the current system – where the starting point is survival and the struggle for money.
What will happen with the implementation of the Equal Money system is that most of the laws that currently exist – will be deleted as they have no purpose in the new system.
For ...Continue »
