2012 Greece is the Proof that a Debt is a Fuck-Up

About two years ago the European union and IMF gave Greece a 45 € billion bailout loan, and some 110 € billion followed shortly after. After this a series of other attempts, such as writing of debt, and further bailouts have followed – not just in Greece but in other euro zone countries as well – in order to stall the country’s national debt; and obviously these loans have not been given freely. Greece has been forced to accept harsh austerity measures in order to receive financial support.

Looking at these numbers and abstract financial terms, it’s difficult to see how it influence the actuality of the daily practical living for an average Greece citizen – yet it’s within looking past the numbers, and instead at the reality of things, that one truly come to grips with the stupidity, and ruthlessness of a debt-based money system; a system which is the very reason as to the bailouts, and austerity measures to begin with.

As an example, many Greece mothers that have been shut out from the public health system, due to unemployment, are now unable to give birth at public hospitals, because of the required fee, which is 900 €. That amount of money constitutes about three month’s rent for a normal, average Greece citizen – money that most do not have

As for pensioners – this is quoted by Nikita Kanakis, president of the NGO Doctors of the World: “Lots more people are being shut out of the national health system because they are unemployed and uninsured and they can’t pay, or because their income has been slashed—as in the case of pensioners—and they don’t have enough money for medication,”

Further – there is a rise of children, born in such conditions that their family can’t even afford to give them the most basic medical needs at the beginning of their life, which includes vaccines. A soon to become mother said the following as to the developments in her country: “I now realize that finding the money to cover the cost of giving birth was the easy part. The question is how are we going to survive after that? I wonder what kind of protection my child will have after it’s born.”

What can also be seen is a rise of children being left by their parents due to poverty. Before the austerity cuts and the recession, the main cause for children being separated from their parents was drug and alcohol related addiction. A priest that works at a support centre for poor people in Athens shares that “requests of this kind were not unknown before the crisis – but that he’s never until now come across children being simply abandoned”.

Parents have no choice but to leave their children, as there is simply not enough food (or is there only a lack of money?) – a woman, Maria, that has given her child away shares the following:  “Every night I cry alone at home, but what can I do? It hurt my heart, but I didn’t have a choice,”

She spent her days looking for work, sometimes well into the evening and that often meant leaving her eight-year-old child alone for hours at a time. The two of them lived on food handouts from the church. Maria lost 25kg.

In the end she decided to put her child into foster care with a charity called SOS Children’s Villages.

What I’ve shared above are real situations, with real people, that experience real suffering – due to a fake, imaginary, and made up money system – with the fictional idea of debt as it’s directive principle – debt is not real – starvation is real – children being left by their parents is real – a child without it’s most basic medical needs attended to is real – but debt is made up.

Debt exist in the mind’s of men and women, it exists as a memory and a promise to pay, it exists as a fear that without being able to control the actions of another through indebting them – one will not be able to survive – debt exists as greed, and desire to have power, to feel superior, to have slaves, and to be more than another – it’s not a actual and real practical object that can be touched – experienced – and seen by all – it’s fake!

The situation that has developed in Greece exposes the ruthless nature of a debt-based money system – there is no humanity – there is no compassion – there is but debt that must be repaid – believing that the only way to structure a effective community is through debt, slavery, fear, control and threats; while there obviously are other ways!

The situation that has developed in Greece also exposes the uselessness of economists, politicians, and the over-all administrative establishment of our current system – they are all completely brainwashed, and subdued into looking at numbers, looking at rules, looking at what is wrong, and what is right – instead of doing what must be done, which is to end this debt-based money system once and for all!

For to long this madness has been allowed to go on – debt has been accepted and allowed as the very basis of interaction between human beings – without considering that a debt-based system always entails a winner and a looser – a master and a slave – a fulfilled and a starving – these conditions and consequences are implied within the very nature of a debt-based system – through demanding interest on loans, constantly creating a under-supply of real substantial money – all money is in-fact debt – raising those in control of the money supply to the skies, while the rest become food for the maggots.

Thus – what we see developing today in Greece is only the beginning – humanity has indebted itself to such an extent that today – only a very few people in-fact are free from debt – the rest are slaves, forced to work, forced to produce, forced create – even though the creations that spring from this enforcement, as fear of survival, are as useless as the debt-system itself; who needs more clothes, who needs a Ipad 3, who needs the latest hair-style? This is all just useless shit, which one desire to buy only due to the extensive brainwashing in the form of commercials that is lurking in each corner of the world!

Consumerism has failed – capitalism has failed – debt has failed – private banking has failed – economy as we know has failed and the proof is everywhere, and Greece is but one tiny example of the suffering that has been born from this debt-based money system – I haven’t even mentioned the animals – the third world countries – the plants – the oceans – fuck! This world is entirely fucked; due to this debt-based money system and its time that we wake up and see this, before it’s too late!

What is happening now in Greece bear similar signs as what happened in Germany during 1933, as the beginning of what was to the become the second world war, as the rise of Nazism; that was caused by the severe austerity measures imposed upon Germany, by the winning parties of world war one, which in turn made the people angry and open for anything – even if this would mean war!

Thus – when people become desperate, and their very survival is threatened, violence and war is never far away – as is proved by the riots in Greece – and is this the world we want to create? Is this the world we want to give to our children? I say – no! Its absolutely not – and as such I refuse to accept and allow our current money system as it exists today, I will not stand idly by and but watch this unnecessary abuse of life, yet I will neither take to violence and revolution – I together with the Desteni group propose a new money system – a system wherein everything is given to everyone, so that all needs are met – a system wherein children can grow up with their families, and the fear of survival become a thing of the past – I suggest that we create an Equal Money System.

And this system must be created through lawful means – democratically as one man one vote – we must in-fact agree with each-other, and educate each-other to understand how and why we must change our current debt-system – and implement a new system that is for the benefit of everyone – and not just a few.

Thus – let the re-education begin – and it always starts with self; a new world begins with self-change, and not through blame – let’s live by example and not by wanting others to change before we do; and as such we move until this is done – and survival, debt, fear and fake economics have become a thing of the past.

Where does your money come from? Do you know?

Where does your money come from? Do you know?

Why is it that there is never enough money? Do you know?

Why is it that debt exists? Do you know?

Why is it that people are unemployed? Do you know?

Who controls our money supply? Why can’t the government make money in order to create new jobs?

Why is money scarce, and always created at interest?

These are EXTREMELY important points to take into consideration when one looks at the current world system, as our current money system, figuring out why things are as they currently are.

See – banks at interest create all of our money, as such all humans are indebted and always in a continuous struggle to pay back this interest. But see – it’s impossible to pay back, because all money that is earned in society is also from the banks, and as such also created at an interest. Due to this fact there will always, undeniably, unquestionably, be poor people in this world – it’s simply a consequence of our system. There is in-fact no ‘real money’ in the world, but only money as debt and as such no possibility for all humans to effectively take care of themselves in this world – and have sufficient with money to survive.

This is how the quantity of money is controlled in the world, through debt. Money is not made to be in abundance and available for everyone, but instead people are forced to compete and fight over the small remnants of cash that flows around in our system.

The same happens with money that is given value through the gold standard. As gold is a limited and scarce resource, through making the value of money dependent upon gold, it allows people to save their money, and have more money than others, with no ability for those with no money, to create their own money, as they don’t have any gold to back their money up with.

So, both defining the value of money in relation to gold, and placing money into circulation in society at an interest has the same effect – someone get’s monopoly upon money, the power to control the quantity of money, and as such the power over another human-beings life; as we can all agree that money is essential for any human beings survival on this earth.

Thus, when the supply of money is controlled, and those that hold the control of the money, decide to make the money supply scarce, it will have massive repercussions for those with no money, as they hold no ability anymore to support themselves, as they have no money and no ability to accumulate or create any either.

So in essence, the right to life is being controlled by those that have the power of the money supply, as the quantity of money in society.

What would then happen if debt was abolished and instead the government free of debt suddenly distributed money, and as such deployed skills and work-force to the parts of society that needed such support?

Firstly, people’s savings would become useless, and people’s accumulated wealth would become useless, as now money could be issued to all people, in abundance, in exchange for labor or work. And there wouldn’t be any scarcity of money, as the government would create all the money they needed in order to create and establish the labor that must be done for society to function effectively. No longer would society be dependent upon rich people to willingly give up their money, or banks to lend money at an interest to be paid back, instead the government would be able to issue the amount required for all people to be given a healthy and sound life.

And what about inflation then? I mean, inflation only exists when there is too much money, and to little products to be bought, this wouldn’t happen if the Government issued money for labor, as then the necessary products would be made for money to uphold it’s value and worth.

And there would be an abundance of money to be issued, just as much money as products people are willing to create. Then there wouldn’t be any inflation as the amount of money would always be equal to what is here.

But I mean, even such a theory about inflation and stagflation is stupid and unnecessary to take into consideration, when it’s realized that we’re in-fact in control of the money supply – we’re in control of the worth of money, we’re in control of the quantity of money. And we’re in control of the production of necessities in society – there is no ‘market forces’ to take into consideration – because what we decide to create will become the reality that we live in. Thus – if we decide to produce food enough for all people on earth, we’ll also find in our shops, enough food for all people on earth. And if people don’t have enough money to buy that food, then we simply issue and print the necessary money for people to buy that food.

And if the farmers then feel they’re loosing money, hell then we print some more money to them – and we state and define the value of that money, so they feel like they are getting something out of their labor. I mean, it’s all up to us how we value and define our money, and through effectively directing and sharing money in society, between all people, moving it within the context of what is best for all – we could easily create heaven on earth. And right now, all we get as value from our money is not being indebted, clearing our way to the end of the month – and that’s it. We don’t get any substantial support or reassurance what so ever, as we currently but strive from on a day-to-day basis, but to survive = a very limited existence.

So why not define money as something abundant? As something that is made for everyone? As something that supports a life of dignity for everyone? I mean – we are in-fact the Masters of Money and it’s only when we accept and allow ourselves to realize this that change will be able to take place.

Thus – research what the fuck is going on in this world in terms of money; realize that poverty is artificially created, as well as the scarcity of money. Realize that we are the creators of what is here – and that the value of money is no natural law – it’s a man created value and as such it can be changed.

The solution is called equal money, as a system where the value of money is life, meaning – we give money the value to support and assist life. Simply, yet unimaginable in our current system – thus investigate equal money.

And also watch this documentary called ‘The Secret of Oz’ – as it well explain how our money supply currently is manipulated to give the illusion of scarcity in this world.

De-constructing my Money-Construct Part: 2

So – taking a part more of my life in relation to money. How I decided to live and apply myself because of money.

After I was done with my high school I decided that I absolutely didn’t want to have any part in our current society. I didn’t want to have a normal 9-5 job; I didn’t want to become the John Doe slaving in the system for the rest of his life. Thus, I decided to get myself an interesting job – a fun job. I decided I was going to escape from the money system.

What I did was that I took courses in diving with the purpose of becoming a dive-master. I did this through believing that if I was able to get away from Sweden, to a hot tropical country – I would end up in some rural location where there was no money; where I would be able to live my life only diving casually and having fun. I dreamt that this place I would be able to locate myself at as a dive-instructor would be free from the capitalism that I saw in my own country, as I had at that time realized how absolutely meaningless and pointless life had become in relation to living in the matrix. All and everything in the matrix I realized was a prison built up around money and so I attempted my escape.

During this time I was planning my escape as I was learning to become a dive-instructor to reach a life of self-independence from the money system. A point of independence from survival, where I would be able to let go of my fears and anxieties in relation to survival and only enjoy me. During this time I held extreme amounts of fear within me in relation to money – even though I had quite big amount of savings.

It was these savings that my parents gave me which I used to embark upon me quest for independence, I didn’t at that time see how I was through embarking upon this quest of becoming a dive-instructor actually placing myself in a position of even more dependence to my parents in relation to money. I didn’t see and realize that me becoming a dive-instructor would mean that I placed myself in a position of hardship and slavery, as that is the reality of those that are paid a low-wage. In which category the dive-instructors happen to be in. Thus, at this moment in time I was still very naïve as to my relation to the money system, I actually believed that I could escape that harsh and brutal reality of the money system, that I could escape my future of slaving for money, through getting a “fun, creative, adventurous” job. Man, I came to see that I was very, very wrong.

It’s fascinating; I arrived in Thailand by myself in order to take up the quest of unleashing myself from the shackles of the money system. Though, I was actually carrying the very money system with me, inside me, as I existed within anxiety that I was going to loose any of the money that I had brought with myself to Thailand. I was very afraid that I would waste my savings and I remember that during my trip in Thailand I during some moments experienced heavy anxiety, to the point where I brought up my notebook and started to sketch down numbers, which was my money. I sketched it all down until I got ease myself within the realization that; I had enough money to survive this day!

Anyway, I lost about ¼ of my traveling money during the first days of my adventure. I got ripped of and I got robbed. LOL – it’s fascinating how this possessed me to the extreme. As I lost the money which I had planned would sustain me for at least 2 months I went into a complete mental breakdown. I searched for some support and help as I was sitting and attempting to “make myself friends” with some total strangers, LOL, I just wanted someone that could protect me from this harsh and brutal reality, because I knew – if I don’t have money I am fucked.

Unfortunately, no one cared about me. LOL – Obviously, everyone only cares about themselves and their money, as I only cared about my money and myself.

After some struggles in my trip in relation to my money I finally reached my destination as the place in which I was going to complete my education to become a dive-instructor. What I saw as I came to this location was that – fuck! This is the same shit as I left back home. Everything here is built up around money; all this fucking diving is only an excuse to get more money. I saw the poverty that was everywhere around me in Thailand and I saw the ignorance, the blatant disregard of myself and the other tourists that came with money to have their dreams of freedom be fulfilled.

It’s really fucked up and still within this experience my highest concern was my own money. I changed hotels one time because I thought that the pricing was to high. Within this I went into anxiety and I yet again started calculating my money as I now had wasted money on two hotels during one day.

I spent one day at this diving resort, then I changed my mind and I left. Or it might have been two day’s. What was I looking for? I was looking for adventure, rural culture where nothing was tainted with money, where there was actual intimacy and enjoyment within the people and where there was no “masks” no deceptive behavior in relation to money. That was what I saw everywhere, these high-pitched tonalities and pleasing behaviors, everything to get money and I didn’t want to be a part of it.

I left to work as a volunteer in a school in which I was teaching English. This was where I found Desteni and looking at it makes sense that I found Desteni at this time. Anyway.

I stayed in Thailand for about 4 months, traveling around experiencing apparent adventure and freedom but I wasn’t free and there was no adventure. I could see everywhere around me how I was the elite and the abuser of this world, because I had more money than everyone else. I could go to a foreign country and live out my dreams, become a English teacher, buy myself new clothes, rent a scooter.

One of the reasons as to why I choose to travel to Thailand in order to escape the boredom and imprisonment of the money system was because everything was cheap there. I wanted to save as much money as I could save in order to keep the little apparent freedom I had, the little apparent safety I had, the little apparent stability I had. I chose to travel to Thailand due to money.

I chose to volunteer partly because of money, as I realized that if I was volunteering I wouldn’t waste any money!

I also remember that I was looking to get myself an education in Thailand so that I would be able to become a English teacher. I didn’t do that because of money, because my parents told me to not waste my savings and by god! I absolutely didn’t want to waste my savings. I was terrified to waste my savings. So I choose to go with the alternative that presented itself as a lesser risk in relation to loosing money.

I remember feeling more secure when I was doing volunteer work, as I at that time had access to a house in which I didn’t need to pay rent. This made me feel better, a lot better, as I then wouldn’t waste money!

It’s strange what extreme influence money has upon me, whether I am spending money, gaining money, loosing money. To loose money and be in a position where I loose more money than what I get, makes me uncomfortable. To be in a position in which I get more money than what I loose, makes me comfortable.

I’ve taken decisions because of this, where I will strive to take the less risky route in terms of loosing money. I will always make sure, no matter what I do, that there is a possibility for me to re-gain what I’ve spent. That I will not spend money so-called, unnecessarily, in which case I don’t get the money back.

Another fascinating thing is that, through me not wanting to get “caught” in this system, I’ve searched for alternate routes. Through going with these alternate routes I’ve actually set myself up to get “caught” in the system, through becoming one of those with no faces, through me not having an education and a stable income. I’ve corrected and realized the point and I’ve realized the importance of making myself a face in the system, through education and a stable income. I’ve also realized that I can’t stop at this – I must use my face given to me through the money system in order to stand up and be seen and heard, to change this system once and for all.

I can’t escape this current money system, it’s everywhere. I can let go of my fear, my anxiety and stand up to make a difference.
