Eliminating Monetary Systems Solves So Many Problems

  • Monetary interests (greed) are blocking the road to renewable resources. [LINK: https://theenergymix.com/2019/12/16/disgraceful-cop-25-shows-big-emitters-betraying-people-across-the-world/] They stand in the way of a path toward saving our ecology, our environment, our very existence. Fossil fuel advocates continue to push for looser regulations (more pollution) while at the same time running campaigns aimed at discrediting the advancements of solar, wind, geothermal and hydroelectric energy.
  • Patents hold up progress. They often keep the best ideas, best design, best techniques and best formulations out of the hands of competitors. This is of course to protect the monetary value of the product or service. Utilizing EVERY advancement for ALL of earth's citizens is an obvious solution to many problems. Poorly made items, inferior design and incomplete processes would become a thing of the past. New ideas, improvements, processes, etc... would all be an asset of the people, belonging to everyone, and cultivated, tested if warranted, and fast-tracked if appropriate.
  • Shoddy workmanship, including a ‘Band-Aid®’ approach to repair, inferior design, and disorganized supply chain are the result of both greed and job dissatisfaction, both of which can be virtually eliminated.
  • Environmental problems increases with poorly made products, as inferior products that fail end up in a landfill that much faster, and have a smaller chance of being repaired.
  • The environment suffers twice with poorly made products, as more raw material are ultimately used to replace the poorly made product that fails.
  • Without the striations of classes and the old ways such as quality education only for the wealthy while the underprivileged are forced into manual labor and low-paying trade jobs – without all of the divisions of the past, we could now have access to the very best education for absolutely every person on our planet.
  • The internet could actually become the life-changing asset for everyone which it has the ability to. Imagine an internet without ads, without deceptive links and bogus websites all designed to separate you from your money. Without marketing and advertising, attempts to steal data and personal information, and other moneymaking schemes, what remains is a monumental wealth of information and knowledge available to everyone. With money no longer in the equation, there is no incentive driving false or exaggerated information in order to sway people to spend their money on a particular product, to support a particular candidate, or make a particular person more wealth. Education, news, advances, public service announcements, and real & useful 'social media' can all be taken to the next level.
  • Collaboration between people from all over the world can happen simultaneously, no matter how far apart they are, without regard for what company they work for, or what monetary motivations might have existed. Instead, innovation can accelerate tremendously. The best way to grow food or capture renewable energy on a northern facing windy slope in former Denmark will not yield the same tools, processes and techniques as on a dry flat Mesa in the southern part of the African continent. In just this one single example: the Internet and our relationship with it as a tool – the differences are absolutely astounding. In fact, instead of closed door deals and backroom bartering and negotiations, all legislation and proposed legislation would be public and readily available to everyone. All governing activity fully transparent. With money off the table the incentives for hiding negotiations from the public have evaporated.
  • Cure starvation around the globe by eliminating monetary systems. We currently produce enough food to feed the entire population and then some. In fact, we currently produce enough food to feed 10 billion people, a full 33% more people than currently inhabit the earth.1 We not only produce an overabundance of food, but have resources to continue feeding our population growth for years to come. What we lack primarily is the necessary infrastructure, and in many cases the proper permission needed to get food to the large populations of starving humans.2 Money drives those who stand in the way of humanitarian aid, often stealing food from convoys and then selling it to raise money for arms. Money is the driving force behind political blockades that keep food from those in need all over the world. Unfortunately, fixing the issues with infrastructure and ‘permission’ from those who rule won’t completely solve the problem of starvation or food insecurity. There are fellow humans starving in every single city in the world, cities with lots of infrastructure, lots of available food, and lots of food being wasted. There is no ‘ruler’ preventing the food from getting to the people. A full “43 percent of American households cannot afford a budget that allows for rent, food, health care, transportation and cell phone service.”3 These are basic needs for survival, not extravagances. So why does this continue? Money. Food is not driven by true supply and demand. If it were we would not have this issue. Instead, like most everything else, it is driven by the demand of those who can pay (money)! If I can afford it, I can eat pretty much what I want, as much as I want, whenever I want. Without money I can not.
  • About that infrastructure needed to feed the world - without monetary systems we immediately eliminate over 20% of the workforce needs (in the U.S.) Those people will need to contribute in a different way, such as helping with infrastructure needs, sustainable farming practices, etc... and help solve the food insecurity around the world.
  • Politics is an area where money has thoroughly corrupted the process, at least to some extent, in most countries around our planet. When you are one of the people crafting new laws, money flows easily to you, and corruption ensues! It is not fair that people who the public have deemed good decision-makers to represent them are required to then endure countless attacks of influence from all sides, often tied to money. This is an unfair burden placed upon politicians, but it is a reality in all society where money exists. In even the most progressive societies all of the rules and laws designed to help prevent such influence and burden do too little in the end to stem the flow of influential money into the pockets of politicians. The river of money will just find another path, make another channel around those rules and regulations on its way to the ocean of politicians. Without the drive of money such things as 'dark money', political favors, lobbyists, and greed-driven legislation would become a thing of the past. People would be elected to serve the population because they are fair, experienced, able to handle the pressure of decisions, and have the capacity to make intelligent decisions.
