No More Insurance?

Equal Money

Let go of that which has diminished you...

Not many of us can imagine a world without insurance.  We hear the word “insurance” and, immediately, think of it as a necessary or required expense – something we simply must have to protect our interests in today’s world.  And, it’s a given that we must have at least several of the many different forms:  Life, Health, Home, and Car, with numerous other types available to meet our perceived needs, from floods to disability.  The insurance industry is one of the richest industries in the world – a stalwart of the capitalist system – with total revenues topping a trillion dollars annually.

Insurance, in the simplest definition, provides financial protection against loss in return for the payment of a premium.  The concept has been around for centuries.  First practiced by ancient Chinese and Babylonian merchants four thousand years ago, then further refined and developed by wealthy Greek and Roman merchants as a means to insure their goods – their financial interests – against loss.  The forerunners of life and health insurance were created by the Greeks, around 650 B.C.  – ‘benevolent societies’ whose purpose it was to care for families, and pay funeral expenses, of deceased members.  Guilds provided a similar ‘service’ throughout the Middle Ages.  Opportunists furthered the transition to today’s forms of insurance, where after catastrophic events, such as fires that wiped out thousands of houses, they set up offices where people could buy fire insurance for their homes.  I sometimes wonder if the same people who invented our fractional banking system, where money is created out of thin air, got together with their rich friends and saw the almost unlimited income potential that insuring the financial interests of others would bring, and decided:  “OK.  You guys make the money up, and we’ll make them all afraid they might lose what they got with what you made up, so they’ll give us a lot of their money – much more than we ‘need’ to ‘protect’ what they think they have…and we’ll all make a Lot of Money” .   The whole concept of insurance was created from a point of profit and greed, capitalizing on the fear of loss.  And not much has changed since its inception.

I sold life insurance for a while, part time, twenty some years ago, and studied and learned a lot about insurance.  I could see how the insurance industry had bilked the middle class and marginalized out of billions, selling them products designed to make huge profits for the Insurance Companies.  And they’re still doing it…

The good news is:  that the entire insurance industry will be unnecessary in the future.  Once an Equal Money System is implemented, where everyone is guaranteed the basic necessities of life – healthy and nutritious food, a safe home, access to clean water, equal access to education and, equal access to healthcare – there will simply be no reason for insurance to exist.

(This is where the armchair economist might say:  But, you’ve gotta have insurance.  What if this?  What if that?)

Consider, that in an Equal Money System, No decision will ever be made in the interest of profit or greed and, that Every decision Will be subject to the scrutiny and approval of but one single rule – What’s Best for All.  If it’s Best for All, then Common Sense tells me that it’s Best for Me, too.  And, by eliminating the fear of survival – knowing that there’s no need to ever have to worry about things like: ‘putting food on the table’ or, ‘making sure my family is taken care of if something ever happened to me’ – we no longer need insurance.  Everyone’s needs will always be ‘taken care of’.  And if some catastrophic event should happen that might destroy someone’s home, it will simply be rebuilt – and what was lost, will be replaced.  Every aspect of Health Care will be provided to All.  And, No One will Ever have to ‘struggle’ to survive.   The Equal Money System supports All, all of the time.

The value of money will be based on Life.  Nothing is of more value.

“You live in a world of magnificent abundance, there is enough for everyone. It is in sharing the most that the most is received.”   Neale Donald Walsch

I received a message on Twitter, today, from a person that was among 76 that had re-tweeted this quote from Neale Donald Walsch.  On the surface, this quote rings true.  This IS a world of magnificent abundance.  There IS enough for EVERYONE.  And, if we subscribe to the words of Jesus to “do unto another as you would have them do unto you”, then the second part of this quote would also be true – “It is in sharing the most that the most is received.”

The problem is that we live in a system that’s fueled by greed and self-interest.  Even though there is enough for everyone in this world of abundance, 17,000 children under the age of 5 die EVERY DAY due to hunger related causes – that’s over 6 million per year – a Holocaust every year.  One Billion people go to bed hungry EVERY night.  Two billion people are trying to scratch out a living on less than $2 a day.  Tens of thousands of innocent people are the victims of senseless wars being fought for control of the earth’s resources.  (Anyone who actually believes that these wars are being waged to protect human rights can go back to sleep – the brainwashing has been complete.)

Neale, with whom are you referring that everything be shared?  Are you referring to sharing with the billion people that are on the brink of starvation?  Do you offer a solution to how we can all live together in harmony?  Or, is it enough to simply imply that we should be grateful for what we have, while ignoring the plight of so many of our fellow earthlings?   There’s no shortage of ‘spiritual’ people who make comments like this.  But, that’s all they’ve got.  They don’t offer any solution to solve the world’s problems.  They prefer to leave that in “God’s” hands.  It’s the most basic of the brainwashing.  It maintains the status quo.

Isn’t it about time to STOP the madness?  Isn’t it about time to truly share the magnificent abundance of this world amongst ALL of its inhabitants?  There IS a SOLUTION!  There IS a group of people that are designing a system that will GUARANTEE that ALL can live a dignified life – where every person will be guaranteed the basic necessities of life, from birth ‘til death:  food, shelter, access to clean water, equal access to education and, equal access to health care.   It’s called the Equal Money System.  And, it’s the ONLY non-violent solution to end the world’s woes.  This is a grass-roots effort to recognize the dignity and worth of every being, based on the principle of Equality – where EVERY decision must support What’s Best for All.  Join us at Equal Money, to discuss how to bring about solutions that are Best for All, where Every person will have a voice and, everyone’s vote will count.  Also, check out the new Equal Money book:  Equal Money – Future of Money – Volume 1 at the Equal Life Store, the first of many books to come explaining the Equal Money System.

Life is Too Short to Waste…

“Life is too short to waste another minute on anyone, or anything, that doesn’t make me happy.”

It’s been awhile but, I have actually heard people make this statement.  I don’t hang around with the people that I’ve heard say it, though.  This statement epitomizes self-centeredness and ego and, in my experience, has been made by people with MONEY, who believe they can buy their own happiness and, don’t give a crap about anyone, or any thing, other than themselves.   It’s been a selfish person that has made this statement.

The brainwashing has been complete…  I must have more…  I must buy, and consume, and accumulate more shit in order to be happy…  I must find sex partners to satisfy my needs – this will make me happy.  I will do whatever it takes to put me in a position where I can have more…

These people are the perfect organic robots that support our current system of abuse, which is caused, and perpetuated, by our current money system:  This system that has watched the gap between the wealthy and the poor grow wider and wider every year;  This system that has witnessed a holocaust every year in the OVER 6 MILLION children under the age of 5 that perish EVERY YEAR due to hunger related causes;  This system that accepts endless wars in the name of money, where thousands and thousands die needlessly while the military industrial complex profits to the tune of Billions and Billions of dollars;  This system where crime, rape, child abuse, prostitution and starvation affect hundreds of millions of people that had no choice in the conditions within which they were born on this earth;  This system that sees over a BILLION people go to bed hungry – every night – even though there’s plenty of food in the world to feed everyone;  This system where Money has become God, determining who lives and who dies.

But, let’s take a look at this statement, again, from a different perspective – where a person has taken a self-honest, introspective look at his/her self, and has realized that we are All One and Equal and, that   this world is in the fucked up shape that it is in, due to our, collectively, having accepted and allowed it to get this way, then has done self-forgiveness for their acceptances and allowances in supporting the aforementioned system, and is taking self-responsibility to become the self-directive principle in his/her life.  When one realizes that self-directing that ‘being’ – that is the real Life Force trapped within our human, physical body – to transcend  the deception of ego and birth one’s self from the physical, in Oneness and Equality with all of life, and to assist mankind to recognize the Equality of All and, that All deserve to live a dignified Life is, truly, the ONLY ‘thing’ that can ever make one ‘happy’, and that everything else is simply distractions which prevent us from facing our true selves, he/she can look at the above statement from a different perspective – redefining it, so to speak.

Yes, life is too short to waste.  And time is a wasting.  Mankind has not been kind to our fellow beings or this earth that gives us all life.  It’s time for a change of perspective.  It’s time to recognize that there is no one better than, or less than, any other and, that the implementation of the Equal Money System will  guarantee that all can live a dignified life, and that All decisions will be based on What’s Best for All.   True happiness can then exist because, All will be happy.  This is the only worthwhile pursuit.

Redefined and Restated (with a little twist):   Life is too short to waste another minute on anyone, or anything, that doesn’t make me happy (that doesn’t support Equality and Oneness for All, and the implementation of the Equal Money System).

If you’re ready to face your Self, join us at Desteni to find out how.  To Investigate the Equal Money System and to discuss how to bring about solutions that are Best for All, join us at EqualMoney.  And, if you dare, prepare to become part of the leading group that will be directing change in this world in the years to come.
