Many that come to hear about ‘The Equal Money System’ are very fast to claim it’s communism, that it’s been tried and that it’s as such won’t ever work. Usually those who make this statement are American or British citizens, due to these countries propaganda-machines, that extensively have propagated Communism as something evil and horribly bad, in an on-going onslaught ever since the end of WWII, as the Iron Wall came into being and the cold war began.
Obviously this massive and almost 50 year propaganda war against communism has been completely and utterly based upon fear – as the fear that the ‘evil communists’ would turn every American or British person a communist as well, and as such end the glorious era of capitalism; as such there has been much nonsense spoken about Communism, much hypocrisy, only to invoke the necessary fear and anxiety to have people avoid the political idea of Communism.
Probably because there has been certain capitalists in America and Britain that have stood on the verge of loosing all their assets if the state would suddenly take full control of all it’s citizens capital – and claim itself to be the sole owner of all the property and capital in the country; because this is the point of Communism – it’s a political idea wherein all the assets of a country, no matter private or public, is owned by the state and then supposedly shared equal to all people in society.
This complete state ownership is to be created through a revolution, wherein the workers take to arms and with violence overthrow the capitalists, as the employers of a society. The reason that it’s the workers versus the employers is due to the communistic belief that all suffering, comes from the capitalists, aka employers, as they are using the labor of the people to make money for themselves, as such not giving the fruit of the labor back to the people – and within this causing poverty and have not’s as economic outcasts in society.
In essence the idea of communism is to, through the removal of all capitalists, manifest a classless society wherein each and everyone ‘work according to their ability and receive according to their need’ – so we’re dealing with some cool principles and realizations here. A society wherein each one is given what he need’s to survive is obviously better than the one we currently have, as a society where no one is given anything at all – instead your born in debt as a slave.
Thus – the principle of communism is sound, meaning: the problem we face in society, as needless suffering and slavery, is due to division by class, as the variations/inequalities of ownership of money between people. The obvious solution to this problem must as such be to end this division by class, through sharing all property equal between everyone; yes this sounds good to me – but still it didn’t work – why?
What communism missed, and why it didn’t work have to do with the way it was to be implemented; as I’ve already explained – through a violent revolution. Why such an approach doesn’t work is because of the nature of the problem – it’s not in-fact the capitalists, as the societies employers, that’s the origin of the issue, as a society where people are divided by their apparent class, as the amount of money they own.
No – the problem is the human nature, as what we’ve accepted and allowed ourselves to become, as how we live in thought/word and deed; this is not a small problem and it won’t be solved with a quick fix – such as a revolution. To solve this problem we’ll actually have to change ourselves as who we are, and how we live on an individual and day-to-day basis, as it’s our individual actions accumulated in time that forms and manifests society as we experience it today.
Thus – when the capitalists were in-fact over-thrown in Cuba, Russia and China and the revolution came to be ‘successful’ – this didn’t change the nature of the human beings; they were still the same, as fearful, greedy, distrusting, manipulative = the normal human-nature stuff.
And obviously this had the consequence that a society with people divided by class, as how much money they own, was simply re-created – as we can only create that which we exist as, and if we live as separate, as a personality, as less than what is best for all = this is also what we’ll create.
So, here comes the difference in regards to Equal Money – we the DESTONIANS – as the people that are standing up to change their nature of self-interest – as ‘I only care about me’ – to something of worth, virtue and value – have decided to in-fact change ourselves and align ourselves to the principle of ‘Do unto another as you would like to be done unto You’.
As such we change the very building block of society, as each human beings individual day-to-day thoughts/words and deeds – as those of our own! We in-fact change how we live and apply ourselves to start considering everyone, all life, and not only our pleasures and discomforts – we in-fact live communism – as no one is less or more than another – but all are equal.
And within this we’ve realized that the only way to implement a lasting change in society, as a society where all are equally free, is through re-education – we must first change the nature of ourselves, before we’re able to change the nature of society, as we’re the building blocks of society, as each breath accumulates and builds that which will become our world and reality at the bigger scale.
This is why we’ve started Desteni I Process, this is why we share the tools of self-honesty and self-forgiveness, this is why we promote and push self-change; because this is the only way to a class-less society and a better world for all – and that’s the difference between communism and Equal Money = communism was only ever an idea not actually lived – Equal Money is a principle that must be lived, applied and considered in every breath – else there won’t exist a world that is best for all; it’s obvious common sense – we’ve always tried to change our reality through changing our external world, we’ve realized that the problem doesn’t lie in our external world, but in our internal world, as who we accept and allow ourselves to be and live as.
