Don’t you think it’s sad that so many people suffer from poverty, homelessness, unemployment, addiction and socioeconomic disadvantage in general? What about the fact that the majority of us haven’t found real peace in life because we’re all fighting to survive in a world which actually has more than enough resources for everybody? We find it sad, especially because all of these issues are either created or amplified by the ‘economic’ and ‘social’ systems that we have designed for the people of earth.

First, we need to change the way that we economize our global society because the suffering it causes is evidently pandemic, especially the boom/bust cycles that screw the livelihoods of the people whilst the rich get richer at everyone else’s expense. Simply, this transformation is fundamental to the future health, prosperity and vitality of our people. To evolve it will no doubt be a challenging and complex process, but that needn’t stop us; we are now at the ideal stage to deeply consider the ways we could collectively move forward.

The Purpose

This article is designed to amplify the collective awareness of a ‘private‘ central banking system that works for the 0.1% but doesn’t work for the people. Governments and citizens-of-earth alike need to transparently engage in an honest discussion about not just the removal of this system, but also the potential models we could implement to improve the global economy for our future.

Of course there will be disagreements on which way we should progress, but that’s not the point. There are so many people who are already aware of this necessity and who support different models and methodologies, so instead of this article being a ‘this way or the highway’ approach, its fundamental goal is to get people to join forces, as well as help more of us to be aware of and supportive towards the need for this massive change.

The harsh truth is that we have arrived at the doorstep of the next Global Financial Crisis. As it unfolds, collectively we will be unable to hide from the immense financial problems that plague us, including our enslavement to debt. It will no doubt shake and wake many from their slumber because of the impacts it will have on their own lives. Yet it’s not all doom and gloom; this might just be a blessing in disguise because it is an opportunity for the masses to join the awakening community and participate in the discussion on how we move forward both in the short and long-term future.

The Dirty Secret about Money

Ask yourself this question: did you know that governments can never run out of money? Don’t stress, not many people do. The truth is we operate under a fiat system where money is no longer backed by gold, so governments can create as much money as they want and direct it according to the economic and social needs of their nation.

No deficit. No surplus.

This is only possible of course if each individual country removes the ‘private’ central bank that controls the money of their nation, as well as stops selling their debt (bonds) to other private and foreign stakeholders. Simply, each government can take back the power to manage their countries money and remove the central banking system which is run by private families that make their living off governments (the tax system) and other banking institutions.

If you think this all sounds insane, you’re right. Why don’t governments just create the money themselves so they don’t have to rely on a tax system, as well as pay interest to rich families? The answer is that the so-called elite have their tentacles spread right through society, including the big multinational corporations that ‘purchase’ political campaigns and therefore government policy. They’re controlling our money and our minds.

Finally, the dirty secret about money is making its way to the masses.

Taking Back Control of our Money

There are alternative economic models already designed by legitimate economists which would effect this change to the way money is created. Steve Keen, an Aussie economist who works at Kingston University in London, is one of them. He has created a system called Debt Deflation, which also includes Quantitative Easing for the people, instead of for the finance and banking industry.

Another alternative model is called Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), which is supported by Bill Mitchell from the University of Newcastle. There are many economists all over the world that also support the implementation of this system, which means the creation of community-based, publicly-operated central banks that fund all the essential services a society needs.

There are of course longer term solutions too, which I covered in a previous article. Here is an excerpt:

There are several approaches to transforming our social system to one in which everybody is cared for and nobody slips through the safety net. One is Ubuntu and Contributionism, whilst another is the Resource Based Economy. The tireless work carried out by Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project, as well as Peter Joseph and the Zeitgeist Movement, have illustrated the logic and methodology to undertake a transition to an economy where all resources and services are provided for free and each individual is inspired and encouraged to contribute their innate strengths and acquired skills for the benefit of their community.

The Result

Can you see the implications of this systemic revolution? Can you see the positive impacts if we changed how money is created for society? There would always be enough cash to create jobs in the public sector when the private sector slumps, virtually creating full employment. Once it rebounds, jobs could be transferred back. In addition, a living wage could be implemented to help combat poverty and other socioeconomic disadvantage. This is so revolutionary that we could actually start dealing with these stubborn issues that plague our so-called modern society.

Education would also be provided for free. All the infrastructure that a nation needs could be built. The energy industry could be transitioned into renewable and footprint-free production. Food could be locally organised in a healthy and community-friendly way. The possibilities are endless.

Very few people are talking about this. Why? This is partly because the mainstream media, which is either owned or controlled by those who benefit from this system, will not give this option airtime or credibility. They allege to debunk it with dinosaur economists who are either paid or brainwashed to maintain the status quo. Meanwhile, the 99.9% continue to be treated like inferior beings and enslaved to debt.

It’s madness.

Those in the awakening community know the truth though. The fact remains that this isn’t some fairy tale idea; we really could change the way that we economise our societies so that everybody benefits, not just the self-appointed ruling class. Furthermore, anyone who says “it will cause inflation” or some other Keynesian regurgitation, have no idea what they’re talking about, so it’s best to listen to the real experts on this one.

Final Thoughts

There was a US president that attempted to bring down this central banking tyranny. His name was John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK) and he was assassinated before he could implement it. Coincidence? Watch this documentary and decide for yourself.

The reality is that if you’re not angry after reading all of this, then you haven’t understood it. If you are, then good; you should be. We all should make this matter THE priority for ourselves and our future generations, especially now that the world has just begun the initial phase of another economic depression which will last the next several years. That is of course, unless we do something about it.

In addition, the other facts that we all should focus on is that each country has the innate power to highly regulate their finance sector and ensure criminal consequences for fraudulent banking, something that the only country that had the guts to do anything about was Iceland. This is also imperative to transforming our economy into a fair and just system for all.

In any case, we encourage each and every one of you to spend the time researching the following links. Before or afterwards, if you believe that we need transformations to our economic and monetary structures, then please sign the following petition and share within your network.

Ultimately, it is at this critical time in our history that we need to come together to intelligently and morally design an economy that works for everybody, our future generations and our natural systems.

3 Reasons Why Introverts Are Undervalued in Today’s Society

introverts undervalued society

It’s undeniable that our society favors assertive extroverted personalities with strong communication skills and underestimates the quiet ones. If you are an introvert, you have probably learned it the hard way.

It could be that you felt unseen in the classroom as a child or teen. Or you may have watched your less competent co-workers get a promotion thanks to their social skills.

It feels unfair, but if you think about our society, it makes perfect sense. The consumerist mindset that has become our second nature inevitably affects the way we treat other people. It seems that everything, including our personal qualities and worth as human beings, is translated into some kind of market value.

In other words, to make other people see your worth in personal or professional life, you need to be able to ‘sell yourself’. Yes, this expression alone tells it all.

You need to know how to make a good first impression, say the right things, and be assertive. If you can’t do it, you are perceived as incapable and uninteresting – whether we are talking about a job interview or an informal social gathering.

But it’s not the only reason why introverts are undervalued in our society. Here are a few more:

1. They are less efficient in teamwork

Communication and teamwork skills are required for all kinds of jobs. It seems that without being able to work in a team, it’s impossible to do your job even if your duties don’t involve interaction with clients.

Introverts are much more efficient when they work on their own and are given a certain extent of independence. They thrive in quiet environments with few distractions and interactions. This is when a quiet person gets the chance to unleash their creative self and make good use of their analytical skills.

Most office jobs don’t give employees this opportunity. Office meetings, group projects, phone calls and all the other attributes of a 9-to-5 job make it almost impossible for an introvert to be productive.

2. They don’t like to be in the spotlight

Sometimes it feels like we are living in a society of attention seekers. Today, you are expected to go public about the most personal matters, such as your relationship and family life.

People share their most intimate thoughts and feelings on social media, post updates about the most trivial events, such as what they had for dinner, and upload countless selfies.

Introverts are among those who still value privacy. They are less likely to showcase their lives online or share the details of their personal affairs with the whole world.

At the same time, the quiet ones don’t like to be in the spotlight at social events. An introvert will never interrupt you. They will listen to you and talk only when they have something important to say. This tendency to avoid attention can be mistaken for insecurity and even a lack of intelligence.

3. They prefer to be real than to be ‘nice’

If you want to make a good impression on others, you are expected to be nice. But what does it mean to be ‘nice’ anyway?

In an introvert’s mind, it equals saying things you don’t mean. Quiet personalities will never bombard you with compliments or say meaningless social pleasantries just to win your fondness. But if an introvert said something nice to you, then be sure that they truly meant it.

Small talk is another component of social relationships most introverts struggle with. To them, it embodies utterly dull, uncomfortable, and pointless conversations they can perfectly do without. For this reason, introverts are often mistakenly believed to hate people.

The truth is that they don’t – they just crave stimulating, meaningful conversations and choose their social circle more carefully than extroverts.

In my book, The Power of Misfits: How to Find Your Place in a World You Don’t Fit In, I write about the reasons why so many introverts feel inadequate and alienated from other people in today’s society. It all goes down to social expectations this personality type has to deal with from a very early age.

But the good news is that every introvert can overcome the negative effects of these expectations and find the right path in this loud, extroverted world.

The Esoteric Meaning Behind Neo’s Interrogation Scene in The Matrix

More than 20 years old now, The Matrix is recognized by fans across the world as being one of the most brilliant films in history, most notably for its deeper meaning and esoteric philosophy.

rxIx7K4Bh6ut7OBECzfaDyQyl1Z-sWruRNXSPGvgcxs

One scene that is particularly intriguing, considering the social climate of today, is Neo’s interrogation by the Agents of the Matrix.

Now, before we dig into the potential hidden meaning here, as I perceive it, and how Neo found himself in this uncomfortable position to begin with, let’s first establish some key points in relation to the overall story line that will help us to appreciate the implications behind this scene a little bit more.

What Does The Character Neo Represent in the Matrix?

Neo in ancient Greek (νέος) means new/young one. This is an important piece of the puzzle to help us understand what the directors of the film are trying to communicate to us. With that said, when we assess Neo’s character in the first film, we find that he is a solitary individual that keeps to himself and is struggling to find deeper meaning in this world by constantly searching the internet.

What Does The Character Morpheus Represent in the Matrix?

Morpheus in Greek mythology is a messenger of the gods. He appears to humans through dreams with the intention of delivering divine Knowledge and Truth. In the Greek mythos, he can appear in almost any form in people’s dreams, which could be because anyone, regardless of race, gender, or outward appearance, can be a messenger of enlightenment and Truth.

The First Matrix Film is About The Beginning of the Journey to Awakening

With the understanding of the deeper meaning behind what Neo and Morpheus’ characters represent in the film, we can now appreciate the intro scene of Neo sleeping (whilst searching for Morpheus) through a different lens of perception and awareness.

You see, Neo sleeping whilst searching online for Morpheus represents the early stages of the Truth seekers journey — “asleep” but still searching for deeper meaning in life — and hoping to find that meaning by seeking out a “messenger” of higher Knowledge and Truth.

Truth is Terrorism in the Empire of Lies

Through his incessant efforts, Neo begins to get closer and closer to finding the elusive Morpheus. This, however, also attracts the unwanted attention of the Agents in the Matrix, which represent the enforcers of the shadow government of this system. Their job is to ensure that no one exposes what the Matrix really is, and how it turns unsuspecting every day human beings into useful resources that it can use and exploit.

matrixpowerpicjpg

The Agents proceed to apprehend Neo and interrogate him, where they make it very clear that they’ve been spying on him and keeping meticulous records of his activities, both online and offline, for quite some time now. As we all know very well today, all around the world intelligence agencies are doing exactly that — tracking what we view online and keeping meticulous records on many of our movements.

The agents, however, do not see Neo as being a major threat to the Matrix system, as he is still in the early stages of his awakening and does not know enough to be a major threat. Instead, they offer him a deal where they will be willing to “wipe the slate clean” on his illegal activities online, if Neo will simply help them track down the man they call Morpheus, who they claim is “a known terrorist” that is “considered by many authorities to be the most dangerous man alive”.

This represents that the single greatest threat to this manipulative system — which is overwhelmingly ruled by deception and exploitation — is any messenger of higher Knowledge and Truth that can potentially awaken those who are still “asleep” to what the proverbial Matrix really is. In fact, one could argue this sort of power struggle has been going on for thousands of years, and is possibly why Socrates was accused of “corrupting the youth” by the ruling class more than 2,000 years ago and subsequently sentenced to death; or why Fred Hampton was assassinated by government authorities in 1969; or, in more recent history, why civilians that were peacefully protesting against Wall Street and the bankers for their part in destroying the world economy in 2008, were targeted by the FBI and even labelled as potential “domestic terrorists“.

Simply put, Truth is terrorism in the empire of lies.

Imaginary Rights

Neo, still being somewhat naïve and unbegun in his journey, rejects the Agent’s offer and demands he get a phone call because “I know my rights!”

To this, Agent Smith retorts, “tell me Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call if you’re unable to speak?”, which results in Neo’s mouth warping in the most eerie of ways.

00011111

This scene represents a lesson that all genuine Truth seekers eventually come to learn — this system is not concerned with human rights nor is it concerned with upholding authentic justice. Instead, it inculcates these beliefs and misperceptions into our minds from a very young age, because it serves to help legitimize its unnecessary existence in the eyes of the unsuspecting public and indoctrinate us as to why we think we need it. But in reality, our government guaranteed “rights” can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye.

In relation to current events, for example, many thousands of people worldwide have been arrested for violating curfew orders; In one Indian state, civilians were told they must take selfies every hour and send it to the authorities to prove that they are staying indoors; in South Africa, some have been fined for not wearing masks while driving their cars; In Boston in the United States, people have even been told that they will be fined if they walk “the wrong direction” down the street; Homeless people in France have reportedly been fined for not staying indoors; Some people have been arrested for attending funerals of loved ones because it violated lockdown orders; Others (including doctors and scientists) have had their right to freedom of speech censored online; In Australia, a pregnant woman was actually arrested in her home for facebook posts that encouraged protesting against the lockdown; According to the International Labor Organization, tens of millions are being pushed into unemployment; and travel all around the world has been severely restricted by these authorities who have taken it upon themselves to be the rulers of this planet by dictating what the rest of us can and cannot do. Whether you agree with these policies or not, these things cannot logically be called “rights” since they are so very easily violated and taken away from us.

We Must Start With the Imagination

There are many other examples that demonstrate how our government given “rights” are more of a comforting illusion than an actual reality, such as the CIA’s secretive Black Site torture programs, which have been done in cooperation with other intelligence agencies and authorities throughout the world. In these programs, people have been kidnapped — without any legal criminal charge or trial — and then taken to undisclosed secret locations where many of them are tortured for many months on end, in ways that are considered to be in violation of international law and basic human rights. The CIA, of course, simply claims they are suspected terrorists. In 2014, however, a Senate Intelligence Committee Report found that at least 26 of the people that were kidnapped and tortured were actually “wrongfully detained”.

Wake Up Neo — You Are the One

Fortunately, Neo manages to escape this unthinkable situation without any serious injury or harm. Soon after, he is contacted by Morpheus, where he is told that he was very lucky that the Agents underestimated his great potential and spared him, because if the Agents had known the great secret that Morpheus knows, then Neo would probably be dead.

Confused by the obvious strangeness of everything taking place, Neo asks Morpheus what the hell is going on, and what exactly is he talking about?? Without hesitation, Morpheus replies to him, “You are the one Neo — You see, you may have spent the last few years looking for me, but I have spent my entire life looking for you.”

This is perhaps the most important lesson the new Truth seeker must eventually come to learn — We are the ones we have been waiting for to change this corrupt world my friends; and we must stop looking for heroes and human leaders to absolve us of this very serious responsibility. Instead, we must all take on the role of Morpheus — which is to awaken as many Neo’s (new minds) as we possibly can, whilst also taking on the role that represents the journey of Neo, by challenging ourselves to become the best version of who we authentically are.

By doing this, we will help to awaken and unleash the unique creative forces of each individual’s problem solving imagination; and we will also find unity in our shared struggle against the injustices, and corruption, of this inhumane system which invariably exploits us all.

If not us, then who? And if not now, then when?

This Clever & Controversial Artwork Will Help You Think Deeper About Society

True artists are what I view as the antithesis of entertainers…

You see, an entertainer is concerned with popular opinion and giving the public what it wants to see. They intoxicate us with mindless amusements to help us escape reality and the everyday stresses of life. But artists, on the other hand, they give us what we need to see; by challenging us to to think deeper about the nature of reality, and the society in which we live, and they do this through the transcendent language of art.

With that said, I decided to collect some of the most thought provoking artwork from around the internet and offered my own little commentary on them…
