Quote Karolina:Update: I am bringing back this "thread from the dead" for a moment, because I think that we are getting close to possibly having "something big" happen globally very soon, which might tip the see-saw one way or the other.
Since we have been visited by many people who seem to want to distract us from our path of understanding truth that might lead to a world that is abundant and just for all people, I thought it might be a good point to restart asking the most important question on the globe right now:
Will the economy be a tool for us — or will we be tools for the economy?
The only truly damaging division in the human species is:
1) Those who celebrate the oligarchical system of government and economy, a system where the lives of all humans who are not the oligarchs is based on the violent lives of less evolved, less complex species on earth, i.e. all species without self-awareness or extended imagination. This system has been promoting for most of humanity the austere and burdensome ideas: health as not a human right but in fact a "survival of the fittest," "alpha-animals dominating the herd by force," "hierarchy positions in the herd," and "the cruelty aspects of nature".
2) Those comfortable when their imagination is inspired in the more human system of government and economy, which is based on love, as binding security and compassion—and also creativity, as freedom to develop ideas which help the evolvement, safety, and prosperity of the human species and its environment, including but certainly not limited to any form of classical art or personal art.
This system, democracy, developed by great minds and philosophies throughout history, has in the United States since 1776 and until recently, been promoting the provision of healthy lives for all of it's citizens, as well as promoting the continuing creative spiritual evolution, progress and prosperity for the entire human species and everything that it touches.
Divisions such as liberals vs. conservatives, democrats vs. republicans, rich vs. poor, aristocrats vs. riff-raff, men vs. women, blacks vs. whites, gays vs. heterosexuals, religions vs. religions, countries vs. countries, nations vs. nations, alliances vs. alliances, etc., are meaningless as such, and only dangerous when embraced and developed for the agenda of an oligarchy or by those who celebrate the oligarchical system.
Often the agenda is just to maintain divisions in the livestock (i.e. people), so that the group stays divided & conquered. Sometimes it is so that unthinking lemmings will keep overly aware geniuses from throwing those oligarchs and their evil minions into the padded high security insane asylum cells where they belong.
But there are times when these divisions are developed and manipulated for agendas that contain much more of "the cruelty aspects of nature", for example the financially diminishing and population reducing wars that can be the consequence of the alientation between an otherwise meaningless division of humanity. That keeps the oligarchies feeling secure, powerful, and in control.
Anyone who understands this truth, will also understand the precariousness of this point in time that we are in—everything is at a standstill for a second. We still have a chance to decide and act—do we want an economic system that favors the 99% as much as the 1%?
OR do we want a system that encourages continous disaster and violence for many of the world's 99%—but which will ultimately also bring disaster and violence to the 1% and the entire planet?
In 1776, as in most revolutions, the division was quite clear:
1. The colonies wanted to be free of the oligarchical system to be able to develop a government and an economy that would be a tool for everyone—the entire 100%.
They wanted to declare themselves to be an independant Constitutional Republic, with checks and balances within that Constitution whereby no one would find it easy to corrupt the government—as long as the people kept up on the news, demanded truth on everything and were able to make truthful, clear choices about their leaders in the government elections.
2. The British aristocracy, on the other hand, wanted their military to "tame" their annoyingly strong-willed American livestock into a herd of lemmings and then to secure and maintain a few power-addicted "alphas" into power positions, so as to keep that American herd—poor, hungry, stupid and available for their needs.
This time will not be the first time that we will be bringing the system based on the principles in the Constitution, in particular Hamilton's "General Welfare," back to the government and the economy of the United States.
We now have over 225 years of up-and-down history on the U.S.- Oligarchy see-saw. If we keep ourself, our children, and everybody else educated, keeping up on true news, demanding truth on everything, able to make truthful, clear choices about the candidates in all government elections and keep in our minds the history of our nation, we will be able to move forward without repeating past mistakes.
Let us not allow our nation be continuing in the direction whereby human beings are once again to be the tools, the livestock, of an oligarchical economy.
Let us bring back, full-force, our most human economic system — to be a tool for us.
