The ‘Private Property’ Demon behind Inequality

golden-calf

In a video I will share this weekend, I heard the following phrase: “In the criminal justice system the people are repressed by two separate but equally important important groups: the police who defend private property and the policy makers who criminalize disobedience”. When I heard “the police who defend private property and the policy makers…” my mind spun ahead completing the sentence with “the policy makers who define private property”.

Why did that pop up in my head? Well it is because of the immoral and cruelly corrupt system of human life into which I was born and in which I therefore have had to utterly waste my short time on Earth. It arranges and justifies its inequality and its abuse of people – and even the destruction of our life-supporting environment – on the concept of private property.

And what is that concept of private property? How is it defined for us?

The Necessary Political Revolution

The challenge: A tiny minority owns almost everything, holds all the systemic power, and denies the rest of us a voice and decent lives. Superficial fixes will either fail or not last long. If, however, we understand the root of our problems, we can fix all the underlying causes of our troubles and thereby end our problems for good. Opposing forces who prefer the status quo or are confused will naturally cause a delay. Many battles for change we will therefore often not win immediately. Therefore we must act with persistence. If we persist, and don’t let ourselves be satisfied with scraps and bones, we can win definitely, as we are not yet – (but almost!) – irrevocably controlled, or so I like to think. We simply must not give up and use the time given by the delays to educate ourselves even better since, in the fight for the future, knowledge – such as understanding and workable plans – is power.

The timing: Since the dark forces have been long at work to make their rigged system impervious to change, we must fight hard not to pass the point of no return (when surveillance, mental manipulation, and brutal force become too perfected to be overcome). And we must change things so fundamentally this time that the classic corruption cannot kreep back as it always has after merely superficial system changes of the past.

The vision: A world built on the prime goal of a good life for all may seem like a new world, but – actually – it is a return to ancient, pre-classical times. The only thing new in a modern return to fairness and benevolence is the enormous amount of science, technology, and other forms of know-how and infrastructure that the ancients didn’t have, and which in combination with the return to a moral society will usher in a veritable Heaven on Earth, a Star-Trek-like world, putting behind us the current Hell on Earth we have inherited from classical times of artificially constructed gross inequality known variably as slavery, feudalism, mercantilism, colonialism, capitalism, and so forth.

Distracting labels: All those economic isms which are nothing more than legalizations of theft and violence from above must be put away into the annals of history, as a horrible interim that humanity suffered after the invention of agriculture, cities, nations, and unfettered global trade, which disrupted the communality of ancient societies and gave sociopathic bullies a chance to dominate everybody else and write their domination into law.

You may wonder about alternative isms that have been proposed and – at least allegedly – tried: Socialism and communism, especially. The point can actually be made that we have never yet seen a true realization of those isms. Communism was merely a new name invented for despotic state-capitalistic regimes (which replaced billionaires with high-ranking party officials that acted within a nationwide production plan, sort of like a single super-corporation). These regimes had resulted from derailed socialism-inspired revolutions and retained very little of their socialist goals. The one socialist goal best realized was the idea that nobody be left in poverty when there was enough to go around. The democratic goal was removed, however. Real socialism has therefore only been realized to some degree on smaller levels like democratically run worker-coops or aspects of it being interwoven with capitalist systems in so-called Social Democracies or Social Market Economies, such as we see in Europe with things like healthcare for all, free education, and non-terminating welfare.

Lessons from the past: We had much the same in the U.S. with the New Deal, but the problem with superficial implementations is that the underlying cause of hoarded wealth and the power it wields influencing and taking over governments remained in place, so the repeal of these measures for the common good were unavoidable.

The awakening: Rather than focusing so much on labels (isms and names for party affiliations and such), A.K.A. political PR packaging, we should therefore focus on the issues and their underlying causes, especially the root of it all: legalized systemic inequality (wealth and power hoarded by the few and denied everyone else) supported by a warped morality that makes this loss of liberty and justice seem natural and OK (even valuable to some), and therefore incurable. When most of us finally mature to categorically reject this rigged system and warped mentality, and we commit ourselves to a good life for all as the governing principle, the system of corruption will collapse — but only then. We will then be able to take the right steps (like reforming or replacing corrupt political parties and our malignant electoral system, insisting on government fairness and the common good, implementing a fair and democratic economy that allows no gross inequality, setting societal goals that put people over profits and good health and fulfilling lives over plutocratic wealth hoarding, and deal with non-artificial problems such as the ravages of aging, and so on). Therefore, let us resolve to walk this walk. Let us learn, think, and discuss constantly. Sharing and promoting pieces like this one with as many people you can – or helping information sites like this – are a big part of this stage of our fight for lives worth living. After one wakes out of a coma, one must not just blink but look around, examine, and communicate. That is exactly what we must do.

Ending Note: It takes me at least 100 hours of spare time each month to research and write news updates and analyses and work on my book. Please widely share links to these articles, so this work is not for naught. You can also help in other ways (including much needed financial support). Only together can we change this messed-up world. Let’s do it! 🙂

 

Good and Bad Tradition

If you can’t think for yourself (or believe that you can’t) you prefer to leave the thinking to the traditions into which you were born. If those traditions are well-balanced, you and those around you may benefit from them. But how can you know if they are actually good traditions if you forfeit your ability to think like a smart human and instead live the instinctive life of an animal that lives its preprogrammed life? Don’t you throw away the greatest gift of humanity, the ability to evaluate, analyze, and improve things?

The theme I am discussing in this short piece is one of the two main pillars of Republican-co-opted conservatism: the placement of tradition over thinking. (Blind faith in authority is the other.) I am not saying that conservatism is bad. Good things deserve to be preserved. But do bad things deserve to be preserved, too? I don’t think so.   Continue reading “Good and Bad Tradition”

Scarcity Made to Order

One of the main arguments of those who hold back progress towards a better life for all is the claim of scarcity, such as “We can’t afford it!”, “Who is gonna pay for it?”, “If we help the poor who will then do the needful work?”, and so on. Claims, excuses, and doubts based on the concept of scarcity are easily believed because, like all creatures on Earth, we humans have been living with scarcity as a natural occurrence throughout most of our kind’s existence. But are we plagued by natural scarcity in these modern times? I say: No! Scarcity today is artificial — and you can easily determine this for yourself in just a few minutes of reading this piece.   Continue reading “Scarcity Made to Order”

To End Wage Slavery

Something not everybody yet understands is that we need to work on our perception and mentality in order to solve our zoo of severe societal problems, such as our bad economy, our corrupt politics, denied healthcare, rampant debt and bankruptcy, the lack of good jobs with benefits, the lack of personal liberty, a world of repeatedly crushed dreams — a plethora of troubles that reflect a transition from a cooperative, neighborly, compassionate human culture to a wolf-eat-dog society.

Since we are so caught up in our current superficial fights over an economic band-aid here or a party-political tactic there, we are often too distracted to look at the underlying causes or even be aware of them. One way to bring them back to the surface is to briefly glance at our preceding generations in which our world changed to the messed-up world we live in today.

Glance #1: Most of our ancestral generations lived as hunters and gatherers, having no bosses to answer to and no money to worry about. Their work was authentic and genuine: hunt and gather food, make your own clothing, housing, and tools, and share with your tribe members as needed (both giving and receiving, thus everybody benefiting from strength in numbers).   Continue reading “To End Wage Slavery”

Allies Against Democracy

Modern forms of democracy were invented to restore to the members of large societies their self-determination and their participation in large-scale decision making which our ancestors, living in purely small communities, had always enjoyed. It is in our nature that we desire to have a say in our own affairs, both large and small. Without this, we easily feel enslaved, and – more importantly – actually ARE enslaved, even if we have been duped into being unaware of it. We want freedom. We want our say. But when we are duped, we lose both.

In the modern case of sly enslavement, we typically only feel the horrors of denied healthcare, broken dreams, blocked opportunities, crushed hopes, financial despair, and the shame imposed on us when we get blamed for our situation, even if overwhelming outside forces brought each of us there. We feel the pain, but we fail to notice our enslavement coupled with our loss of democracy.   Continue reading “Allies Against Democracy”

One man’s wish: Let the people be free!

At the end of this short piece, I share a video that’ been gathering dust in my archives.

It may be rather long and rambling, but the great point Jamarl’s speech ultimately comes down to is: What kind of life do we want to live? He mentions nobody wanting to be a cog in a wheel which is what people end up being in our current human world. So, ask yourself what kind of life do you want to live?   Continue reading “One man’s wish: Let the people be free!”

The Straw to Break the Climate’s Back

Disagreement on climate change can perhaps be resolved with a little looking at well-known facts, personal experiences, and a little thinking.

First a helpful video clip:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Climate Change, South Pole & Dr. John Bird | The World According to Jesse on RT America |”)

Bravo, Jesse! Jesse Ventura made a good point about climate change. Perhaps he went through his life with open eyes.

I have lived long enough myself to personally experience climate change and know it is real. The places I lived at became ever warmer and more unstable weather-wise. Since 1964, the change has been consistent. When you have lived for a while, it therefore takes turning a blind eye not to see this.   Continue reading “The Straw to Break the Climate’s Back”

Vapid Lives of Destruction, Part 3: The Stalled Minds of the Billionaires Forestall Human Progress

When one watches filmed documentaries about the lives of billionaires, it’s like watching a crowd of naughty children. They squander enormous wealth on luxurious shopping, jet-setting, and partying, instead of spending it in socially responsible ways. By co-opting governments, or by simply squandering the large chunk of humanity’s wealth that they control, they block human process in order to live their childish god-fantasies. When they (physically, but not mentally!) leave behind their childhood, they have to be on constant guard against gold diggers, and – when they do marry – they typically maintain their marriages so badly that frequent divorces are the norm. And finally they raise their own children to become utterly immoral narcissists to repeat the disastrous cycle.

Waking up out of their empty and destructive way of life is difficult since everybody always says yes to them because of how they wield their wealth as a club. And so they never grow as human beings to arrive at sound insights, sensible opinions, and good goal-setting. Everybody around them only loves the opulence that sticks to them like a bad smell. Nobody cares about them as a person. All the human consideration they get they must buy since, as persons, they are underdeveloped, blithe, abominable, and vacuous. What an empty life to live!  Continue reading “Vapid Lives of Destruction, Part 3: The Stalled Minds of the Billionaires Forestall Human Progress”
