From global social stagnation to sustainable social reform and development.
History of Our Descendants:
Imagine 100 years after retiring all money systems from the human experience. Future generations will feel most fortunate to study and discuss currency (money systems) from museums and databases as relics of this era and having only a historical purpose in their time.
Influence and Corruption:
To totally retire money systems is to also retire the effects of money systems. Only then will governments have fair and increased opportunities to deliver on their obligations to the people without the long-lived shadows of financial influence and corruption. Retiring money systems brings man much closer to ending world poverty and beginning world healing.
Replacing competitive money systems with pure local and global cooperation retires subhuman resource deficiencies leading to prostitution. Only after retiring all money and critical resource-based motivations for prostitution can humans focus on the remaining psychological based needs to continue such activities.
Our civilization has designed environments equal to getting what you can on a basis of how much you have to offer at the expense of others who are less fortunate. This imbalance creates a motivation for a person or entity to contemplate crime, to set his environment right in his own mind. If basic food, water and shelter are not free and available to all people, then there will always be those who will pay or exchange at a premium to receive them and reinforce the disparity between those who receive and those who are denied.
The extra blow to our humanity is that our collective psyche is openly aware that others are denied these basic needs while we pay for them. There is no currently known plan to truly eradicate the suffering caused by the denial of basic human needs worldwide. As governments do their part as planned, we want them to do more. Our highest ideals, our subconscious minds, scream to us to end this travesty in the presence of the irony that the necessary cost must be disregarded.
The human race must actively choose positive evolution. While money has solved many obstacles of the past, it now represents more of an obstacle than of a solution to future advancement. The capacity for the institution of money to inspire and direct humanity towards the future has expired. Humans have arrived in knowledge and productive capacities to provide for and to advance all global humans.
The primary obstacle is the global “what’s in it for me” mentality. This global aspiration for money, and all money can buy, prevents progressive change at global, national, community, family and individual levels. Humans must evolve to approach decision processes that consider the objectives and actual resources required, but intentionally excluding unnecessary intermediaries such as money.
Knowledge resources of one prominent university can permanently advance the entire human race, yet we continue to restrict knowledge access from thousands of colleges and universities worldwide only to those able to pay by cash or debt. This thinking model is unintelligent from a global human survival and prosperity perspective. Money institutions cannot lead the human race in this regard.
Without money and wealth acquisition as motives, media broadcasts can return to their original purpose of disseminating informative and educational information. Accordingly, there would be no need to bombard broadcasting with preemptive advertising for financial gain. Mankind would eliminate a primary means to deceive its people due to the false or otherwise misleading claims of advertisers with questionable motives and credibility.
Without money or compensation needed or sought, global citizens will gladly volunteer for the opportunity to express their skills at the highest possible capacity for contribution, recognition and progress. Moreover, supervisory personnel will tend to succeed based on their ability to create harmonizing and cooperative environments for an all volunteer workforce. Accordingly, there will be permanent declines in long-term worker dissatisfaction and supervisory abuse. Supervisory personnel will acquire every motive to create and sustain friendly environments for volunteer workforces.
In the end, you must choose the global direction by the systems that best meet your practical needs and represent your values and evolutionary aspirations. When you inquire “who am I?” then you must also place self in proper context among your entire species. Even if you are self sufficient, you also speculate regarding the resource systems that nurture or bind the collective species. You must extend your analysis in this manner because both the honorable and embarrassing activities and psyche of your species complete the picture of self-identity. You cannot fully escape this partial influence and burden due to species generalization.
To pursue our highest ideals, we must eventually experience an era in time when global cooperation will have successfully evolved such that all exchange of goods, services, technologies and knowledge are based primarily on need or equality, without regard to the wealth of any nation or individual. To totally disregard financial wealth, money systems must be retired.
If our world has enough food to feed every human being, then we should do so, period. It does not matter how much money it will cost. Accomplishing this goal is the only way that we as individuals can evolve to our next progressive state. On every level known to us, we must know that we are taking care of each other. Otherwise, by default we reinforce the notion that we are out to get what we can at the expense of another.
Note that it is not necessary to have willful intent to deny essential goods to another. The mere awareness of acquiring essential goods and services while another is deprived is a sufficient force to stagnate human advancement. This is the thinking pattern that limits the true advancement of every individual and the entire human race.
No one can achieve his or her greatest potential, knowing that one human being suffers while a means to help exists and one refuses to act. (Most readers may need to reread the previous sentence to capture its full meaning) No one can achieve his or her greatest potential, knowing that one human being suffers while a means to help exists and one refuses to act.
Not doing right by others, regardless whether we know them personally, eats at us like a cancer. We must arrive at a time in our near future when we gladly feed every being of our race at zero cost because cost will be an unnecessary topic of debate or conversation. The ability to operate globally without the need for money but based only on need or equality will be the milestone, as evidence that we can then continue to evolve based on cooperation.
Replacing the civilization model of competition with the new civilization model of cooperation has a chance to penetrate into the hearts and minds of everyday people as representing the best way to live and interact among each other. Yes, there is greater clarity that the human race can achieve higher individual and global greatness by classifying this financial obstacle as obsolete and retiring it once and for all.
We simply cannot follow our highest ideals for living as a race while competing with each other on every level for money and resources. Achieving our highest ideals and competing for money and resources are highly incompatible activities. The belief that the human race can continue to positively evolve, trusting money competition models and denying basic needs to the less fortunate, lacks foresight into the prerequisites for our next stage of human evolution. The belief that evidence of positive evolution is the successful gathering of money to create sufficiency and the developing of technologies only to further money inflow is the money paradox of discussion. No! Money competition models where the less fortunate suffers and cooperation models where all succeed cannot harmoniously coexist.
The failure to subordinate and ultimately eliminate money and other competition models will continue to support evolutionary stagnation and could be the catalyst to future sequences of events leading to the destruction of the entire human race. There are many scenarios which could produce this same catastrophic outcome. Simply the continued denial of basic needs or dignity of a few could be sufficient cause in the minds of those looking for entities of blame for their suffering. Doing all that we can as a mindful society to balance resources or to administer according to need is what can be done as a first major step to place the odds of survival and ultimate success in our global favor.
From global social stagnation and decline to sustainable international social reform and development.
