of a “NEW Humpty Dumpty
” model of global significance
, the peoples of the world have to awaken to the FACTS
; and collectively address
the underlying problems of the CRISES of politics, religion and science
. FACT 1
– Monetary Wealth
can ONLY be generated as a result of the labours of the people; unless of course, money itself becomes a commodity as it has done since Reagan & Thatcher’s DE-regulation, and having done so, has led to the most severe economic crisis
that the totality of our species has thus far experienced.
have forever tapped into that wealth at the expense of those labours of the people and always utilised it to their own selfish ends
, counting on the fact
that the capitalist model accepted the fact
that banking was too large/important to fail. FACT 3
– “Capitalism is about the link between effort and reward
. It is about the creation of wealth according to the quality of one's enterprise. Without wealth creation there is no scope for the taxation that enables the functions society deems moral: a welfare state, the defence of the realm, the maintenance of law and order.
” FACT 4
– 40% of global GDP
has been wiped out
as a result of the actions of bankers, quants, politicians and their regulatory framework colleagues
, following the “massive expansion of the money supply in western economies and in the developing ones too, whether China, India or Brazil. This expansion, which was the fault of governments because it is they who control the money supply, put trillions of dollars of cheap money at the disposal of bankers and other institutions who make a living by buying cheap – in this case buying money cheap – and selling dear.
AND NOW the peoples of the globe
From the outset of our species’ “journey of life
” on this planet it has been the power
of MEN’s physical and egotistic nature
that has driven his instinctive and intuitive understanding of the spiritual component of LIFE
, to the point that HIS interpretations
of ALL aspects of LIFE
have been merged into an indelible pattern
of individual responsibility, as custodian, for the collective good of his closest group of the species
During the early phases of this development the strongest took control
and the spiritual was delegated to a.n.other as a partner
in the process of control
of the feminine and devine feminine perspectives of LIFE
. The dual, parallel forces
of politics and religion
were established side by side, sometimes in conflict, sometimes in unison, until such time as the advent of the concepts of church and state as one
and church as state
As our species spread over the earth an adherence to this tribal pattern
led to animalistic territorial confrontation, conflicts and wars
, often at the behest of “religious advice
”, and the consequent pillaging of goods and subsequent trade of those goods, for the ever increasing collective good. A collective good, however, which became to be controlled by a corrupt partnership of state and religion, supported by the new politics of Machiavelli.
Bankers and banking appeared on the scene, primarily to fund these conflicts and wars as the catalyst to the process of an ever increasing accumulation of material wealth and power over the people
, amply supported by the observations of scientific experiment and the development of ever more appropriate technological solutions; and along came protestant reformation
, the commonwealth
, the industrial revolution
, the “seeds” of democracy through revolution
can best be described as a system in which private capital or wealth is used in the production or distribution of goods, for the mutual benefit of ALL stakeholders, in support of the very best values of democratic society
. Capitalism has provided the mechanism by which the potential benefits of global free trade
could be made available to ALL 7 billion souls on our planet
IT IS the breakdown of the, inherently required, responsibility to adhere to the ethical standards first incorporated into the capitalist model, by the likes of Josiah Wedgewood and Henry Ford, in combination with the predominately patriarchal mind-set of our new masters of the globe, which has now resulted in the latest global recession/depression and has brought US ALL to the “abyss” which we - the peoples of this planet - are NOW staring into.
The OLD MODEL of an economic system
which generates and gives power to the self-sophisticated, arrogant and greedy nature of capitalists, bankers, and politicians
– which has led to the dominance of the private owners of capital and of production of profit for the few rather than the mutual benefit of the many and the subsequent destruction of 40% of global gross domestic product
- HAS been found wanting and collapsed into a multitude of diverse pieces, as a result of their collective inability to manage, let alone administer
the system for the benefit of the people and now they come to us “cap in hand to ask for more.
The particular OLD WORLD interpretation
of the European version
of that OLD ORDER MODEL
of an economic system has EVEN developed hand-in-hand with the creation of a European Government led by a small unelected exclusive group of MEN who have the supreme power of the EU in their hands
An anti-democratic oligarchy IN FACT
. An oligarchy
which at present, as the spokesman of the 25 nations of the EU, is preaching to the foremost democracy on earth about its proposed BUY AMERICAN policy - whilst being locked into a system of monetary union which was never designed to cope with the inevitable global boom and bust which we are now experiencing
- as one of its NON-EMU member states is “Lording” its special relationship with that self same democracy. IS IT NOT somewhat ironical
that the buy American commitment IS of the people, by the people, for the people
in the face of the predominately elitist
“DO what I say NOT what I DO control
” of the peoples of Europe and the rest of the so called civilised world by that small, unelected, exclusive group of MEN
. The leaders of the EU, UK, Russia and China “spring to mind
”. IF every individual one of the peoples of the globe
now decided to lodge their earnings and/or savings into a mutual building society, savings and loan, credit union or for that matter under the mattress, the banking industry would be starved of funds and as Nobel Prize winning economist and former chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, Professor Stiglitz
has recently suggested
, “perhaps it would be best to allow ALL the banks to default on their own debts as a result of being made bankrupt
” – but ONLY, I would suggest, on the basis that the banks should become an extinct species, such that capitalism as well as democracy should become a function of the people, for the people, by the people
. A commitment to establishing a social networking site of global significance, based on the concept of conscious capitalism was, I truly believe, the driving force behind Brian’s “zaadz” initiative and its incorporation into the community of GAIA.
It was from that place in Italy - Florence - that the first Bankers of Europe launched there own version of capitalism - the same city that brought "the mind of Leonardo" to the attention of the world for the first time.
"IF we choose to pry culture away from capitalism while the rest of life is capitalistic, culture will become a slum. In fact, online culture increasingly resembles a slum in disturbing ways. Slums have more advertising that wealthy neighbourhoods, for instance. People are meaner in slums; mob rule and vigilantism are commonplace. If there is a trace of "slumming" in the way that many young privileged people embrace current online culture, it is perhaps an echo of 1960's counterculture."
By the TIME of his demise Leonardo da Vinci no doubt envisaged that the concept of conscious nay conscientious capitalism would become the core of the ONE & ONLY mind-meld of our species as a result of our search for the Holy Grail of accepting
Art, Science and Nature AS ONE
IT IS THE collective mind-set of responsible and appropriate ACTION of the zaadsters_et_al@gaia, which MUST NOW PREVAIL, IF we are indeed to address the underlying problems of the CRISES of politics, religion and science.
