Reclaim Our Rights
Opportunities? Conspiracy? Vested interests? Or just plain stupidity?
What are human beings fundamental birthrights? We need to know- and
claim it, especially for the disenfranchised and future generations,
who cannot speak for themselves.
are concerned about injustice, unemployment, poverty, homelessness,
drug addicts, healthcare, crime, war, terrorism, globalization, species
extinction, natural resource depletion, pollution, climate change, and
many other miseries that are destroying our beautiful planet.
scientist Buckminster Fuller researched those problems and came to the
following conclusion, in his book CRITICAL PATH in 1982. “It is
now possible to give every man, woman and child a standard of living
comparable to that of a modern-day billionaire. This is not an opinion
or a hope-it is an engineering demonstrable fact…World Game makes
it eminently clear that we have four billion billionaires aboard our
planet, as accounted by REAL WEALTH, which fact is obscured from public
knowledge by the exclusively conceived and operated money-game and its
monopolized credit system accounting…We find all the no-life-support-wealth-producing
people going to their 1980s jobs in their cars and buses, spending billions
of dollars’ worth of petroleum to get to their no wealth-producing
jobs. It doesn’t take a computer to tell you that it will save
both Earth and humanity billions of dollars a day to pay them handsomely
to stay at home.”
can be verified by the US research organization Technocracy, which stated
some 70 years ago that, if we would operate our society in an intelligent
manner, with the ‘Energy Certificate’, instead of money,
than these could be our benefits…The first 25 years of anybody’s
life could be devoted to schooling and job training, suiting a person’s
aptitude and ability, with no financial burden to student and family…A
working age from 25 to 45 with perhaps a quarter the present working
hours and then retirement with full purchasing power and privileges…Equality
of men and women…Full medical and dental care for life…No
more debts of any kind to anybody…An orderly planned society obviates
competition, advertisement and shoddy products to assure continuous
sales and service. The whole fear industry could be transformed to render
useful service…The present reason for economic crimes, alcohol
and drug abuse would be gone…No more need for anybody to prostitute
themselves. And no more wars!
it could be like now, 70 years later, if this would have been promoted
like an automobile commercial?
psychoanalyst, social theorist, and humanitarian Erich Fromm confirms
what Fuller and Technocracy disclosed in his book THE SANE SOCIETY,
with many examples. In view of the previously verifiable statements,
it should be obvious that the people in education, business, and politics
missed a fantastic opportunity to create, for the first time in history,
a just and sustainable society.
Sadly, there is nobody in ‘Who is Who’ who will talk about
such possibilities publicly.
call it Missed Opportunities? Conspiracy? Or vested interests, as too
many people are financially too comfortable to talk about it? But in
view of our escalating problems, it is STUPIDITY if we carry on as usual.
professes to be concerned about Global Warming and global justice should
live and lead by example with a new Global Ethic “ Do not expect
others to live with less than what you’re willing to live with.”
always remember; we come with nothing, and leave just the same. And
for over one hundred thousand people the departure date is today.
6.1992 I saw a glimmer of hope in Time Magazine, when Ted Turner announced
that “he is not going to rest until all the worlds problems have
been solved. Homelessness, Aids etc.” And he further stated “If
we don’t make the right choice after we have all the information,
then we don’t deserve to live.” Well, as history shows,
Ted never delivered. Nobody since has stepped up to the plate. Guess
it’s up to all of us.
oriented “Having” society should be encouraged to explore
the concept of “BEING”, a philosophy articulated by one
of the greatest Jewish thinkers, the late Erich Fromm, in his books.
Quote: ”If life’s tendency to grow, to be lived, is thwarted,
the energy thus blocked undergoes a process of change and is transformed
into life- destructive energy. Destructiveness is the outcome of unlived
life. Evil constitutes the crippling of human beings power. Criminals
(and terrorists) are made not born.”
scientist Ashley Montagu, is both frank and explicit in his book “
The humanization of man”
is not inherent in human nature, it is learned…Aggressiveness
is taught, as are all forms of violence which human beings exhibit.”
we apply such wisdom in society and the world, instead of clogging up
the prisons and destroying our world in endless wars and wasteful competitions?
In view of such powerful and verifiable statements, by these humanitarians,
all members of past and present governments should be held morally,
and some criminally. responsible, and that includes CEO’s as well.
