A MONEY-LESS FUTURE LIKE ON ‘STAR TREK’? IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?

June 13, 2015

Yep, several countries are on the cusp of introducing a ‘Unconditional/Universal Basic Income’, which will go to everyone to cover the cost of housing and food, everything ‘earned’ is on top of this.

Many Economists and Philosophers on the left and right have written at great lengths in support of UBI, including Thomas Paine, Friedman, Freidrick Hayek, etc, etc.  Left leaning economists see UBI eradicating poverty. Right leaning economists see UBI as providing the billions of people who will shortly lose their jobs to cheaper machines with income to buy the products these cheaper machines will produce more cheaply!  Without UBI the vast proportion of the population will have NO money to buy products… and the system will crash.

UBI will be funded by scrapping most social benefits and by placing a more realistic tax system in place, i.e. the greatest proportion of tax is currently raised from those on low income, whilst billionaires pay little if any tax.

Moving from ‘providing money to buy products’ to just ‘supplying products free’ is then not a very big step. We will move into a ‘moneyless society’ which will be based on ‘Resource Based Economy’ (RBE).  The Earth will be declared the inheritance of the entire human race.  A global audit and computerized system management will provide products to meet needs, NOT to create profit. The math has been done and under RBE everyone on the planet can have a better lifestyle than all but the current billionaires (who will unfortunately have to be taxed back to being mere millionaires).

Please check out Home – The Venus Project who’s founder, Jacque Fresco, invented RBE.

This is for YOUR information.  The answers to the many questions you may have are out there. I don’t wish to debate any naysayers, the argument is already being soundly won.  If anyone is interested in learning more then ‘Google’ is your friend.   ‘Universal Basic Income’ will take us on the first steps towards the ‘moneyless society’ of a future ‘Star Trek’ Earth.

“Make it so!”

“OIH, DAVID! BLAME THE RIGHT PEOPLE FOR POVERTY AND STARVATION!”

January 6, 2015

david-attenborough-e1359327784336There is too much ‘over population’ propaganda coming from too many people who really should know better.  Yes, people like you David Attenborough.  ‘We are a plague on the Earth’???  Is that what you think of humanity?

http://churchandstate.org.uk/2013/01/sir-david-attenborough-we-are-plague-on-earth/

The ‘Network for Church Monitoring’ (see above link) promote the mantra that ‘religions’ are causing over-population and that poor people MUST stop breeding!  Yes, some religions are stupid, some promote breeding to increase their numbers, but they aren’t the main reason people have big families. The main reason is poverty. Parents NEED many hands to forage, grow plants, tend flocks, look after them in their old age, etc, etc.. it is the desperation of poverty that drives population.

More successful countries with better social provision create populations that are not driven by desperation and need less children. To underscore this correlation look at third world countries that begin to prosper and provide, equality, security, social support and you will see that a reducing population follows. Some EU countries are experiencing NEGATIVE population growth and without immigration their economies would COLLAPSE!

The ‘stop breeding’ proponents amongst us have simply swallowed the lies of the 1%, who now own nearly 50% of the world’s resources. They buy up resources, to create artificial scarcity, to ramp up prices to create more profit.  Meanwhile, the poorest 50% of the world must try to survive on 1% of the world’s resources! The 1% and their corporate oligarchy are THE major cause of starvation. The 1% starve millions of people to DEATH every year.

TAX the 1% back to being mere millionaires and give the poorest half of the world THEIR half of the planets resources, so they are no longer desperate… and watch the population growth fall.

Humanity is NOT a ‘plague’, we are simply ‘infected’… but THAT is curable.

UKIP Farage resorts to chain (e)mails

December 3, 2013

Today I received, from a well meaning friend, a chain e-mail that he obviously felt make a lot of sense. It had originated from United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage himself and was, as you might expect, full of lots of unwise, cynical, inaccurate and misleading information. All disguised as a ‘We want our country back’ themed piece of extreme right wing rhetoric and urging the receiver to pass it on to ten friends.

Farage talks about how everyone in Britain should buy British products and wear British clothes. People should not be receiving ‘socialist’ benefits at the expense of the working class. He inexplicably refers to our soldiers dying for Britain in Iraq and Afghanistan and admits he talks about fearing God and wants to take Britain back to ‘the good old days’. Oddly he forgets to mention in the chain mail that he wants us out of the EU. Has he finally realized that the reason d’etre of UKIP is untenable and potentially disastrous, as most of our our trade is with EU.  I doubt it.

Saying our soldiers died in Afghanistan and and Iraq for ‘Britain’ is asinine.NIGEL

Only (or even mostly) buying British products would mean buying them ‘even if cheaper imports were available’, so we would need MORE money OR have a LESSER lifestyle. This is also known as ‘protectionism’ and would impact our exports to countries we would no longer buy from, as they would reciprocate to ‘protect’ their home market from us! This is on top of the loss of EU business I mentioned.

Telling people to wear ‘British’ clothes is fascist… banning full-face burkas may be a different matter… they should be worn only during religious observance. Likewise, full face ski masks and helmets should be banned, unless the wearer is skiing or biking…. and what if fashion changed, as it regularly does and Britains wanted to wear foreign clothes? Are clothes from the EU like French Fashion also to be banned?

Playing the God-Fearing card is stupid, because only 6% of Brits go to church at any time other than Christmas, funerals or weddings. What about all the Brits who follow other religions, or none?

Farage speaks as if something is wrong with socialism. It’s not just about making sure unemployed or disabled don’t starve to death or are made homeless, or making sure the children of single Mum’s are fed and clothed. Free education, free health service, free fire service, free policing, etc, etc, is all socialism too. Without social provision, paid for from progressive and proportionate taxation, thousands would starve and become homeless and crime would rise as people stole to feed themselves and their children, just as they did in ‘the good old days’ of Dickensian England that Farago wishes to take us back to. Perhaps the starving children could start going back up chimneys? Or maybe he would reintroduce child prostitution?

Does he think everyone who doesn’t vote UK Independence Party is not proud of their country? Dr Samuel Johnson said “Patriotism is the last resort of a scoundrel.” Farage is the very definition of a cynical, opportunist scoundrel. I am surprised he did not add that he had heard that someone who had received this chain mail but not passed it on to ten friends had died the very next day!  Then suggest that you should pass it on to ten friends immediately, because if you did not then the same fate might befall you!  The ConDems and Labour are certainly far from perfect… but Farage is about as far from perfect as is humanly possible!
