There is a tyranny of greed that keeps humanity downtrodden and the best that people can hope is the indenture of wage slavery. We opine for drudgery. Humanity tinkers with the belief that it can improve the financial systems of the world to reduce poverty. Nothing improves only the impression that is sold to us that there is improving. I resort to my inherent contemplating, the transcendence to our birthright, that of a mind without tamper and to all my training in the assumption of philosophy, the education that I was told would get me nowhere in this life, that it would shortchange my mortal coil. It does not matter what financial system is improved, there will only always be drudgery and unmet need in chasing drudgery. A score of families have stolen more than 90 per cent of the world’s resources. One hundredth of one per cent of the world’s people effectively rule and determine the fate of the other 99.99 per cent.
How much happiness has been stolen from the world?
The world is owned by a score of families – one family owns the majority of the world’s central banks. The carry on about the ‘Panama Papers’ is the equivalent pittance of ‘welfare fraud’ compared to the tax avoidance by said corporate ‘giants’. The so-called super leaking of tax avoidance, tax minimisation and tax fraud are comparatively no more to the truth than what our earth is as a pale blue dot to the universe.
The manifest of money and subsequent financial systems have only the agenda of setting up ruling elites, but who are so few that humankind is still yet to understand. Financial systems are intentionally geared to the indenture and control of humanity. With mass surveillance there is the cusp of another inglorious dawn for the shadowy ruling elites. The entire human species is on the verge of slavery and controls the likes never before known but only dreamed of by the ruling elites.
The revolution that we need, the only revolution that can free humanity from poverty, from famine, from nations and wars is the revolution that puts an end to financial systems. Financial based systems are the worst form of genocide. Genocide, by definition, is the systematic decimation of a people. Financial based systems are tools, the most powerful tool of metronomic soulless assimilation. Financial systems have made industries out of nothing, have made purposeful the meaningless, a macabre theatre of humankind. Money has disposed on humanity physical and mental illnesses – unnatural harbingers and audiences. Money has dispelled happiness and wonder and accumulated stressors manifest from less than dust.
The late Richard Buckminster Fuller, second president of MENSA, said, “We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest.”
However a score of families undermine this potential for humanity.
In the last of year of his life, 1983, Fuller said, “The youth of today are absolutely right in recognising this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So, we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.”
Greed is a tyranny haunting a brutality on humanity that finds its relief in sickness. There is no overpopulation but only exhaustion of bodies and minds whirling in a critical mass of forced labour, endless production and tortuous consumption.
Our days on this earth have been stolen from us. We misspend them. Invoking Schelling, Schopenhauer and Heidegger, people are maltreated as if they are property of people. But people are not the property of people. Freedom is not the property of people. People are the property of freedom.
It is our duty to resist.
In the Herrenmoral principle, Nietzsche argued the madness of the world, where the ‘ruling classes’ – he was referring to the ‘aristocracy’ – are kind and compassionate to their ‘own kind’ but cruel to those ‘less’ than them, to their ‘inferiors’. This was not how we were meant to be. We were meant to all get on, to be happy. It is now at best our longing.
We need to view the future – humanity – through fresh eyes and with radical thinking that bespeaks of revolution, for the world has no other hope. The end of days is threatening a fast approach on humanity – the earth sciences describe calamitous times. A quarter of the earth’s remaining species will be wiped out by the end of the century, maybe more. There on calamities will escalate with catastrophe the only beacon. The human rights language and social justice vocabulary is unfolding far too slowly, incremental change is a death knell.
Financial systems – and the presumption of money – have clouded, indeed dirtied, the mind. Sentience is not of values or moralities, its birthright is clean.
There is more debt in the world than there is money and demonstrates that indenture and control are the aim and everything that purports social justice is contained within. Imagine if we took the social justice fight to the score of families that rule the world. But let us remind ourselves that nations are their armies, and the most powerful within these nations are their foot soldiers.
There is hope. We are alive. Or we can fear fearlessness and the challenges.
