The Limey Man is not affected by mortal matters such as time. Carry on.
Fine, I like wasting my time until my food gets delivered
Lets start by mentioning that the extinction of our species is mathematically inevitable, due to the rapid destruction of our planet's environment. After all, we are all living off of this planet, and we are doing quite a bit of damage to it. And even though all things must come to an end sometime (in short, we are going to be extinct sometime in the future), making that end come a lot faster than it should have been is not a very desirable thing.
Now, having established that we must do something in order to stop this kind of destruction we do to our planet, we must first determine the root causes of this behavior. After all, if a friendly alien species were to visit the Earth, after some investigating, they would be rather curious as to why we are destroying our own environment. It all may seem normal to you, but having never seen anything else, all this damage to Earth may see natural to you, but its not. So far none of the established institutions of the existing society has ever tried to address the root causes of this human behavior, and attempt to solve these problems effectively. When someone does something that is considered legally wrong, (aka criminals), we put these people to jail, to contain them and keep them away from lawful citizens. This is like somebody shooting at you, and you applying a bandage to the wound, and expect it to heal. It wont, because the bullet will still be there, inside your body. Just like that, the root causes of criminality, violence, greed, corruption, hatred, prejudice, and everything that is wrong in this world are still there. Applying a bandage to them does not solve these problems.
Having understood that, we must now attempt to solve these problems, by changing everything in our society, including the way we think. But I skipped a very important factor in the equation. Our society's core, and that is money for labor.
In our society, each individual has to earn their living, by way of manual labor (work). This may be a service (doctors, lawyers, etc), or physical labor (builders, carpenters, etc). Working, means that you do something, for someone else, usually for an extended period of time, every day, in order to acquire some money. But what is money? Can we eat money, wear it as clothing? No, but we can purchase goods and services with it, essential being a form of barter. So money should have the same value as goods and services available in market. In other words, for every car, house, cell phone, internet or phone service, etc etc that is out there, should be an equal value in money, in order to purchase it.
Unfortunately, this is not the case. Why?
And that brings us, to the Federal banking system. The Federal banking system, was introduced by the bank of England around 1800s, if I am not mistaken. This banking system, allows banks to create money out of thin air, through debt. In short, as long as there is someone that wants to borrow any amount of money from a bank, money will continue to expand forever. But here's the tricky part. In order for money to be created, a central bank must first loan money to the government. In short, money can only be created through debt. But hey, if money can only be created through debt, by way of bank loans, and can only be expanded through more loans, then technically, 1. money has no real value, since it does not represent anything (gold, silver, etc), and 2. money will continue to expand forever. However, I have deliberately "forgot" to mention 1 thing:
The application of interest. When a bank loans money to someone, whether that someone is a citizen, corporation, or a country's government, the debt always has to be repaid back with a set amount % of interest. That means, that if I borrow 100 dollars from a bank, with 2% interest, I will have to pay back 102 dollars.
But if money can only be created and expanded through loans, and these loans have to be repaid back with interest, then where is the money supply to pay the interest? Nowhere. It doesnt exist. The only way to pay off the loans+interest is to borrow more money, and that is why inflation is always a problem, and money will expand forever. But if money keeps expanding, and everyone owes something to everyone, with most people unable to pay off their debts because the money supply is always short, then what happens then? Someone always goes bankrupt, thats what happens. This is why there are poor and rich people, with the poor consisting more than 80% of the human population, and the richest people on earth consisting 1% of the population.
But again, I forgot to say something. A very important "feature" of the Fed banking system:
When, say, a government, needs some money, it has to borrow some from a central bank. So lets say, that the US government borrows 10 million dollars, from the Fed bank. The Fed says, "ok, we will buy 10 million USD in government bonds". The government then takes some pieces of paper, paints some official looking designs on them, and calls them "treasury bonds", with a set amount of 10 million. The Fed, takes some pieces of paper, paints some official looking designs on them, and calls them "Federal Reserve Notes", also with a set amount of 10 million. The Fed then trades the reserve notes (money) for the treasury bonds, and thats it. 10 million USD has been created.
Now, logically, this 10 million will be deposited in some bank. Once the deposit has been made, automatically, 10% of that deposit is held as a "reserve", and the other 90% is considered an excessive reserve. What does this mean? Well, this means that 90% of every deposit made in some bank, can be loaned to anyone, as long as there is a demand for that loan, simple as that. Now, it is logical to assume, that the bank takes that 90% of the 10 million dollars (9 million), and loans it to the person who requested that loan. That is not the case. This 90%, means that the bank has the right to create the same amount of money, on top of that 10 million, so if you were to borrow 9 million from a bank that has a deposit of 10, the bank would give nothing of its own, creating 9 million out of thin air, expecting you to pay it back with % interest.
So now that we borrowed 9 million USD, we can make a deposit in a different, or even the same, bank. The process repeats itself. From that 9 million we borrowed, 900 thousand is isolated, and 8,1 million is available for new loans. So on, so forth.
Basically, for every dollar deposited in some bank, 9 times that amount can be loaned, theoretically, if people were to borrow every single penny the bank has got.
Now that we have established that money has no real value, and is created out of thin air, being borrowed from the central banks, and expanded through commercial banks, the logical question would be, "how is that fair?" Of course, it is not. It defeats the whole purpose of the system, because the system is flawed by default.
When someone buys stocks, and earns money because of it, offering nothing in our society, basically leeching the already short money supply, that means that they are literally leeching money from someone else who needs it more. To cut a long story short, and to skip the millions of examples that come to mind, the monetary system is designed to favor only the elite, and to let most people starve, so the few can live in wealth. If everyone could pay off all their debt, including interest, there would not be a single dollar/euro/pound on the market. Money would cease to exist.
Now, having explained some very basic knowledge about the monetary system we use, it is important to say, that we believe that we need money in order to survive and co-exist. Otherwise everyone would want everything, stealing from each other, and causing a state of mass chaos. Right?? That is what you have been taught.
The truth is, that money is the most useless thing that exists in this world today, logically speaking. For, you cannot eat money, you cannot dress with money, you cannot provide yourself shelter using money, you cant do anything with it, technically. What humans need, are some basic goods and services, right? Like food, water, shelter, etc etc
So, the question is not, "do we have enough money to...." the real question is, "do we have enough resources on earth, to provide everyone with every basic thing they need?" Yes, we do. We have more than enough resources of food, water, materials to build houses, schools, hospitals, etc for everyone on earth. But who will do all that? Many people will have to work in order everyone to acquire these goods and services. No, that is not necessary. Right now technology is has advanced enough, so that more and more machines are replacing humans every day. Entire work crew from factories get fired, because they are replaced by robots. Cars, that are a lot more complex than chairs, tables, doormats, are being constructed exclusively by machines.
This means, that we can eliminate human labor by 90%, regarding the production of goods. Regarding services most of these jobs will be obsolete, if money, laws, governments do not exist. Because, what would a lawyer be useful for? You get the point.
Now, I admit that we cant do everything using machines, but we can cover most things, eliminating manual labor. Some people, will have to to contribute something to society though.
More analytically: If I were to invent an electric engine, that can fit a car (I know electric cars already exist, duh, it is only an example), that produces nothing hazardous for the environment, and has a very good autonomy, I would do it because I like doing it, because I enjoy give something back to society, that provides food, shelter and everything I need, to me. I do not need to remind you of people like Albert Einstein, the Wright brothers, Nicola Tesla, etc etc, who contributed such useful inventions/discoveries to society, and expecting nothing much in return. These people are not multinational companies that gain money from their inventions.
Basically, in a resource based system, everyone would do something they really love to do, whether that is painting, writing a computer program, designing buildings, etc, without having to do something they hate, and that contributes nothing real in society.
What we must first do, is survey our planet for every energy resource available with regard to environmental friendliness, and efficiency. Right now, we are burning fossil fuels, at 1000 times their renewability rate. Fossils fuels also exhume hazardous fumes to the environment. That means that we are using one of the worst energy sources on a mass scale. Why? Because the big multinational companies need to make money from it, they dont want to go bankrupt.
Once we have surveyed our planet, we can see that we have numerous choices, from solar energy which is incredibly abundant, to wind energy, tidal energy, wave energy and geothermal energy. All these energy sources combined together, if exploited to a minimum, can power the entire world forever. Hard to believe? Solar energy alone, can power the entire planet forever, if we only exploit 1% of the solar energy being available on earth, theoretically.
Having said that, once we build an efficient energy harnessing system on earth, that is 100% renewable over time, and does not harm the environment, we can move on to more difficult tasks.
How could we provide everyone with goods and services? As I mentioned before, with the application of technology, aka machines. Some people will have to contribute something, volunteering though? Yes, that is correct. But you cannot conceive that, can you? Let me tell you something. If someone told you, that you can have every single thing you need in this world, (materially speaking), and having to do nothing at all to acquire these things, would you really sit on your couch for the rest of your life? I know I would definitely wouldnt want to live such an insanely boring life. I would want to contribute something to society, give something back, so to speak, because that would give me psychological gratification, on top of the physical gratification I receive from all the luxuries I am provided with by society.
If less than 5% of the world's population contributed something to society, and everything else could be done with machines, wherever applicable, then we pretty much have everything we need. Ask yourself: How many times, have you done something, for someone else, expecting nothing in return? I, personally, cannot count these occasions. Why do you do something for another human being, if you get nothing in return (no profit)? Because it satisfy you, emotionally.
Now is the time where you tell me that people are bad, that most people wont care about others, that conflict is in human nature, etc etc.
First of all, there is no human nature. That is something that people use as an excuse. It has become known, that scientists have discovered the "smoking gene", aka the part of the DNA that determines if you are gonna smoke in your life or not. Come on, you must be really dumb to believe that
Let me tell you something: if you were born in Turkey, you would probably be speaking Turkish, and be a Muslim, right? Why? Is it some gene or something? Of course not. It depends on the environment you were raised in, aka human nurture.
Human nature is the needs for food, shelter, warmth, sleep, etc, some very basic needs that we share with animals.
Human nurture, is everything you pick up along the way. If I were to raise a child, and taught them that Muslims or Christians are evil, that they are only bad people that only mean harm, then that child would grow up believing that, being almost completely unable to change their mind. Strong prejudice can be created through human nurture. If I were to beat up my child, and treat them worse than a pig, that child would have some serious problems growing up. They would even end up on living a miserable life, having serious mental problems, or they would become criminals, etc.
If we can provide our children with the right environment to grow up to, then we can expect them to be much better people than us. The human brain is an incredible learning machine, that can achieve greatness, as well as be nothing better than an animal.
But how can we do that? How can we change as a species if we are already nurtured with these sick notions of our current society? It is difficult, but not impossible, and can only happen gradually over time.
Nobody is being born thinking, "hey, I want to kill some black people, because I just dont like them." or, "I am going to sell drugs for a living, and I couldnt care less for the hundreds of people I am going to kill through selling drugs". Something happens along the way. People do bad things for a reason. And instead of trying to remove these people from society, we should try to remove the root causes that led to these symptoms.
Now that we have established that human nurture is responsible for most conflict that exists in our world, it is important to mention that providing everyone with everything they need in life, is going to solve most of these problems.
Also, the idea of property must cease to exist, for someone cannot steal something that doesnt belong to anyone. In fact, why would you even steal a car, if you already have that exact same model for you, available whenever you want?
What if something is unique, something that someone made, and you want it as well? Like we already mentioned, when someone makes something, like a beautiful painting, or a very nice song, they make it available for everyone, receiving credit for it, and emotional gratification that they contributed something to society.
Quick Example: You can download that song from the internet, and the painting that Mr X made is uploaded as a picture on the internet, and if many people like it, it may come into production, providing everyone who wants it for purchase.
I already feel too tired from typing, lol, but.....oh well
Having said all that, if someone stops and considers every possible aspect, thinking (can all this be made possible?), they will realize, that yes, physically, it is possible, the only thing that stops us, is our mind. Your mind tells you that you that this cannot happen, because you have never seen any kind of society like this one. People need to start thinking outside of the box, and realize that all this CAN happen, the only barrier is if we want it to happen. Some people are also brain-washed from society in such an extent, that not only they cant think outside of the box, but also they will do everything they can to protect the system.
"Every organism on this planet lives in harmony with the environment, however you humans do not"
Once we realize that we are all one, one nation, one species, one planet, one universe, then we might have a chance of actually transforming the human mind, because our mind is the root of every good and bad thing in our society. That is our weapon, our core, and our soul.
Finally, in the end we will realize, that we dont just have the option to change, we HAVE to change. We are a train heading towards a cliff, with no brakes on, or any other way to stop. Extinction is inevitable, the question is when. We can prolong it, while there is still time, or we can run at full speed, and fall on that cliff a lot sooner.
I am sorry for the long post.
Anyone reading this, please be aware that I excluded many things from the resource based system (venus project), missing a lot of certain sections, while being hindered by my imperfect English, and my FAIL ability to express myself. You should also be aware, that some things I said are my own personal beliefs, and that I didnt copy/paste anything from any article.
