The Justice of Money

 Problem

The law is often portrayed in the symbolism of a woman that is holding a scale in one hand, a sword in the other, and her eyes is covered with a cloth – this symbol is commonly referred to as Lady Justice. The meaning of this symbol – that by the way represents the legal system – is that justice is blind – which would then imply that the law does not place any sort of value unto the person that uses the law to make themselves heard – this person can be of any cultural heritage, rich or poor – this would not matter because apparently the law treats everyone the same.

This idea sounds cool – because I mean – if everyone could use the law in order to make themselves heard – and the law would treat everyone equally – this would mean that people that do not really have any financial muscle could stand up and challenge organizations, corporations, rich people, or governments – when these people find themselves in a weak spot wherein they are abused and not considered as an equally valuable part of society.

But is this how it works? Does the Law treat everyone Equally?

Obviously – the answer is NO – and as such the symbolism of lady Justice is a complete and utter lie – because the law is not about equality – it’s about financial muscle – and it’s about the game of money wherein money is king – and money will buy you the result that you desire.

Consider the following – you’re a poor farmer – and you’ve bought a shit-load of seeds from a big supplier (a big corporation with lot’s of money) – as you plant these you notice that – fuck! – these seeds doesn’t seem to grow at all!

Naturally you as a farmer that is dependent upon your seeds growing up to become vegetables – become quite upset as you see what is unfolding (or rather not unfolding) before your eyes and you accordingly decide to – “sue those fuckers!” – now here the question comes into play – would you as this farmer actually be able to win such a law-suit – and what would be required for you to win a law-suit?

Well – obviously – because you as the farmer are a farmer – and have accordingly spent the majority of your life farming – consequentially you know and care – “nothing about the got-damn laws, and lawyers!” – which in turn means that you must invest in a Lawyer that knows the law – that knows how the justice-system functions – in order for you to have any form of success in a legal process – and this obviously costs – a shit-load of money.

Already at this stage you as a farmer is at a rather precarious position in relation to the corporation – because as you take a big loan to be able to afford a lawyer – the corporation use it’s money that have been specifically put aside to covering the costs of eventual legal processes – in order to hire 15 lawyers – obviously lawyers that are the absolutely best and that are able to persuade even the most resistant and stern judge that a murder should be more seen and defined like a quite upsetting insult.

So – what can be clearly seen in this example is that – the justice-system is NOT equal – the justice-system does not in-fact promote JUSTICE – it promotes what money dictates that it should promote.

In the case of you as the farmer – as you now see this massive array of lawyers amass on your opponents side – suddenly – the chances of your success might feel more distant – and maybe you will at this point begin to think about the consequences of an eventual loss wherein in the court would judge in your disfavor – because this would mean that you would have pay for ALL THOSE superbly expensive lawyers that you’re opponent as the corporation have decided to hire.

So – here we can really question whether there really is any form of chance for you as this farmer to actually be able to win a lawsuit against a big corporation?

And also within this – we should ask ourselves the question – is this how we want our legal system to function? Do we want justice in this world to be measured and defined by the amount of money that you’re able to amass?

Obviously – this is not what we want to have – not any SANE human-being want justice and morality to be in the hands of money – as that is simply psychopathic – because justice and morality are and should be expressions of honoring life – as what is best for all – in actually looking at what is FAIR – what is CORRECT – and what is BEST – and then from there making a decision – which is NOT possible in our current and money-based legal-system – because money isn’t FAIR – money is simply money and those that have it are not fair but simply want to have more of it at any cost.

Solution

What is then the solution? How are we able to give everyone a voice to be heard – so that the farmer is able to grow his crops – and he’s able to do his thing – and make money and take care of his family?

Obviously – we require to change how money is allocated in this world – and we have to make sure that no one person or organization has money to control basic necessities – and human rights – because food, water, and a home – that is HUMAN RIGHTS and should be given to everyone – unconditionally.

As such – the solution doesn’t lie in re-creating our justice-system – but the solution lie in re-creating our money system – in making sure that money is given to all equally – and that when disputes arise between human-beings in terms of how to share the resources that are here on earth – that this is sorted out through a democratic process – that is ruled not by considerations of money – but by considerations of what is BEST FOR ALL.

Reward

What would the reward be? Well – no more would anyone have to fear that their very life and existence would be uprooted and turned around – and within this that they wouldn’t have any form of chance or capability to change the turn of events – and instead each one would feel, and experience themselves safe – in knowing that – there is really JUSTICE – FAIRNESS and MORALITY in this world – and that I will not be able to become a victim to a money-driven legal system – and used as a dirty old rag – and thrown away after all my money has been sucked out of me – I would really and in-fact be protected – and I would know that regardless of what happens to me – I will be cared for and treated as an equal.

Money Rules In Politics

Lately I’ve been researching the legislating process in USA – this after having seen the documentary called ‘The World According to Monsanto’, as Monsanto has proved to be a company that has managed to pull through bills and laws to support their products, even when it hasn’t been certain that their products is no threat to the health of the public. Specifically this has been so with the GMO plants invented and patented by Monsanto – there has been research showing clear signs that the plants might be harmful to the ecology of nature as well as man; yet without any consideration towards this research, legislation was passed that allowed such products free reign in USA.

In the documentary that I’ve mentioned, this point of the ineffective and detrimental legislation, as well as it’s non-scientific but instead politically biased foundation, wherein no actual research was taken into consideration when the law was passed and implemented, is covered in great length. It’s an awesome documentary – I suggest you watch it.(Robin 2008)

Anyway, I started to research the legislation process in USA and found some interesting facts as to how politicians, as the people having the power to implement legislation, get elected. To be voted into the ‘house’ in congress costs about $1.4 million dollars and to get into the senate costs about $9 million dollars – this money is used to run a successful election-campaign. Now, to fund one’s campaign the politicians need to have donations and obviously – whom do you think make the donations? Yes – it’s of course the corporations, as those that want to get a foot into the nations heart so to speak, as the place where governing takes place. And in this way the loyalty of the politicians are bought to the highest bidding, as the politicians require being ‘nice’ towards their donors and make sure that they vote ‘aye’ on laws that support their donors business, else the next years campaign-budget will, with all certainty, lack some of that much needed money.(Krumholz 2011)

So, huge amount of money is required to be voted into the house and senate – not to talk about the presidential post in which sums ranging from $400-700 million dollars are needed. And all of this money comes from a biased collective of corporations, whose sole intent is profit and nothing else, this would make one wonder – but doesn’t all our legislation, at least USA’s, then simply support these corporations to make more money? Because, obviously – if you as a politician decide to go your own way and vote for policies that is supportive for the general public, but detrimental to the corporations, you won’t get re-elected, as you won’t have any money, as donations, to support your campaign with.(Krumholz 2008)

The American political system is the perfect proof as to how politics has become nothing but a cash cow, a public debate wherein the officials have been bribed and bought by the corporations to vote and speak – not according to principle as what is best for all – but only according to the shareholders wish to enrich their stock-portfolios – fascinating shit!

What is even more fascinating is the practice of ‘revolving doors’ that take place in the political arena of USA. What ‘revolving door’s’ imply is that politicians many times wander from a high and influential position in the private sector, to a high and influential position in the public sector and then sometimes back again – going back forward between those who make the laws and those who benefit or loose due to the laws; clearly this doesn’t set the foundation to have our political decisions be unbiased, objective and in the interest of all, as the politicians will have their allegiance elsewhere, namely to the fat paycheck the a corporation will award a loyal employee with.

What fascinates me further is the practice of lobbying, as an entire multi-million industry, solely focused upon the practice of influencing the decision making of politicians. Corporations buy lobbyists to speak on their behalf; many times these lobbyists are retired politicians or retired highly influential public officials; basically individuals that have a massive social network, with the ability to influence people high up in the food-chain – as such the corporations receive another way making sure that their sole intent of profit maximization is supported through the necessary laws, instead of laws being enforced and implemented to support the well-being of earth and all of mankind. Fascinating shit!

This information is openly available and proves that our, or at least USA’s, political decision making is almost if not entirely based upon the premise of supporting corporations to make more money; there is no morality, no principle and no integrity to be found, only money is of value. Obviously such a twisted political foundation, as that which our society is based upon, as the laws enforced, forms a culture in which only profit and money receives support – and life, human-beings, plants and animals becomes forgotten.(Krumholz 2011)

Such a practice, as described above, is naturally completely and utterly unacceptable, as money must not be the decision maker and ruler of life – principle must be! And not any principle, but the principle of what is best for all. Though to implement and found our decision making upon such a principle is near to impossible in our current money system, as each human-being is driven by the competition and survival which our current system is based upon, as debt, as have and have not’s. Everyone, as well as politicians, is in-fact existing in complete petrifaction and as such run around with no consideration as to principle, only attempting to gather enough cash, so that they can take care of themselves and their family; corporations is but the expression of people coming together, helping each-other to survive through combining their resources, as share-holders.

Thus – we need a system wherein people can let go of their fears, their constant search to assure themselves survival – and instead be given survival. Then we’ll all be able to sit down – calmly and reasonably – and discuss our political dispensation within the consideration of what is best for all – not what’s best for our wallets, as our wallets will already be sufficiently filled for us to live a comfortable and effective life.

So, the key to a new world, as politics driven by morality instead of money is EQUAL MONEY. I suggest – do your research and find out the simplicity of the answer, as to creating heaven on earth.

Food Inc. and The Horrific Nature Of Our Money-System

A documentary called – food inc. – I dearly recommend to anyone interested in knowing how our current food-system operates, and how it is contained and trapped within our current capitalistic money-system.

In this documentary it’s explained as to how the chickens grow now in comparison too some 30 years ago. Chickens now grow from babies to 5 and a half pounds in about seven weeks – this is an extreme growth-rate in comparison to how the chickens grew before; when a chicken in 3 months only grew to be the half of that size – this exponential difference as to the speed in which the chickens come to develop their muscles has the consequence that many of the chickens can’t walk – their legs, their bone-structure and their organs is simply not strong enough, as they are not developed in the same rate as the muscles are.

When the farmers are asked – what do they think? Those interviewed shake their heads as they essentially see that this isn’t actually farming – but an industry of death. But they still conclude – why should I buy a chicken that grows twice as slow, and reaches twice the weight, when I can buy this other type of fast growing chicken? This clearly indicates that the reason for animal abuse is money, and that the farmers are not actually able to stand as, and live as the principles that they see are the best for all, as they are more concerned about their survival – knowing that – if they have no money, they will not survive.

And so it is that animals have to suffer, as the entire food-industry is completely focused upon profit and economical gain – wherein the big corporations are in charge – and through their sheer power in money, control the markets and set the rules, with not care or consideration as to the suffering that they are responsible for bringing in to this world – what-so-ever.

Further:

A clever and dubious way that these chicken-corporations have designed to blackmail farmers for money, is to now and then demand that the farmer upgrades, or re-builds his or hers chicken coop – with parts supplied by the corporation. This then costs a lot of money – often the farmer must go to the bank, and take on a debt as a loan in order to do the demanded  construction work; from that point on, the farmer is caught in the net of the corporation; dependent upon the corporation to supply this specific race of chickens, so that the debt can be paid off, and if the farmer refuses to follow through with upgrades demanded of the corporation, the corporation will end the contract with the farmer.

This is but one of the many fascinating, and horrifying facets of capitalism, which this movie depicts. Capitalism is shown, as what it is – a system completely out of bounds – with no regard to life at all – with no regard the organisms, to animals, to the earth itself – non the less people. Corporations force themselves forward, hiring attorneys, infiltrating top positions in the government, all the pass the necessary laws, sue the necessary people, all the earn money – that people suffer, that people loose all that they got – that the earth suffers, that all that is created is a existence of suffering – this does not at all bother the corporation; at the moment that is. Though when it comes down to the details, the specificity as to who actually is behind this system and the consequences it brings – we see that it’s ourselves, and our own individual actions of greed, and fear – wherein we regard only ourselves, and our life, our happiness and simply do not recognize that there are more to life than ourselves.

But – earth is changing, our actions and the compounded consequences of our actions are now visited upon us – our money system is collapsing as greed is going out of control, as the fear to survive possess the very flesh of each and every human-being alive.

Though – there is a solution – equal money for all.  Until we get to that point – there is the desteni “I” process – which is the way you will be able to secure an income for yourself, even in the hard times that are to come. Many are going to suffer – many are going to be without anything what-so-ever. Though, those that walk with us – in the desteni “I” process – they will have a stable future – until we have placed an equal money system, to finally, and once and for all end the suffering, as the outflow of our current money system, and the greed that lies at the root of it.

So join desteni “I” process – I am recruiting, thus contact me and I will recruit you. I seek 10 people to be my recruits – your welcome to apply.
