The Road To Civilization

There are many people doing great things to make the world a better place. The problem is that most of our efforts will be within the same mindset that got us into these problems. The results are too little too late. We need global consciousness shift if we expect anything to get better. The profit mentality has been like a cancer growing on this earth consuming every man, woman, and child in its path.  The average American is so deep in the rabbit hole that they actually believe they are free and America is  still the greatest country in the world.

The truth is far from the reality that most people live in. Once you can take a step back and look at the bigger picture you will see that capitalism is a more clever form of slavery. The best part is everyone actually BELIEVES they are free. That is the key this plan, without the illusion of freedom the American people would not stand for it.

“…slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of the laborers, while the European plan… Is that capital shall control labor by controlling wages. This can be done by controlling the money it will not do to allow the Greenback… as we cannot control that.”

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.” -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe- 1749-1832

So what do we do now? We have millions of people who are starting to see the world for what it truly is. But how do we go about change? And what do we change? Let’s look at a few perspectives.

Carl Sagan updated his 1980 series “The Cosmos” ten years later and addressed the major issues we need to face as a species.

  1. We need to be more responsible with the use of fossile fuels. Instead of a car that gets 20 miles to the gallon how about 70 MPG.
  2. We need to commit to safe alternative energy sources. Solar, wind, and tidal sources of energy are clean, renewable, and sustainable.
  3. Global reforestation on a massive scale
  4. Help bring all nations out of poverty and to sustainability. This is key to addressing the planet’s overpopulation issue. Most populations grow much quicker in 3rd world countries. Education and resources is the best chance to help aid this issue.

Carl Sagan could not have been more accurate on his advice. He saw the problems with our society and knew possible solutions. His advice in 1990 could not be more relevant today. However I believe we must change the fundamental problems built into our system that create these conditions. The first three of Carl Sagan’s guidelines are all caused by the greedy profit motive that thrives in our capitalistic society. We have had great solutions to all of those 3 issues, but the problem remains that there are too many people making too much money to change. Any efforts will be futile when maximizing profits is still a goal for most people.

Below are some more recent lists of things you can do today to start implementing practical change.

Here is the list of solutions from the film Zeitgeist: Addendum

  1. Expose the FED cartel: Boycott Citibank, JP Morgan Chase, and Bank of America. Move to credit unions, refinance somewhere else, and if you work there quit.
  2. Turn off the TV news: Use and protect the internet
  3. Boycott the military
  4. Boycott energy companies: Get off the grid and make your home and car as efficient as possible
  5. Reject the political system: Focus on working to dissolve the outdated system of politics, in favor of technological redesign
  6. Join the movement

Here is a list from the Pennsylvania chapter of the Zeitgeist movement

  1. Create individual awareness
  2. Create collective awareness
  3. Connect on social networks and the internet
  4. Change the monetary system.

Here are practical solutions from the film Thrive

  1. Get informed, speak up, connect with others
  2. Bank locally
  3. Buy and invest responsibly
  4. Join the movement to audit and end the Federal Reserve
  5. Keep the internet fair and open
  6. Support independent media
  7. Support non-GMO farming
  8. Join movements to bring about honest elections, require election and campaign finance reform
  9. Advocate for renewable energy and start talking about Free energy
  10. Sign up for critical mass actions, Join together

The lists are all basically saying the same thing. We need to put and end to the corruption in our society by taking power away from industries that have unchecked for so long. We need to end the FED, create an honest democracy, and keep the Internet free and open. In addition I feel that we should be focusing on education as much as possible. Knowledge will set you free.

Here is my list for Taking Our Planet Back

1. Global consciousness change: We need to understand the fundamental problems that are built into our system. There needs to be more education on how our monetary system works with the history of the fractional reserve banking system. The key to change is a global connected consciousness. We need to shift our views from individual profit to the collective well being of everyone on the planet. We need to understand that our economy can only survive with unnecessary consumption and our planet cannot sustain that model for long. We need to let go from our entitlement and obsession with owning property. Think of how much stuff in your house only gets used once a year. We need to come together and realize that we are all one.

2. Addressing the monetary system: The Federal Reserve needs to be shut down as soon as possible. The fractional reserve banking system is unethical and outdated. Our entire planet is operating on Fiat currency, which will always fail. We need to reattach real resources to the monetary system instead of arbitrarily printing money. Moving toward a resource-based economy is the most logical thing to do. We need to abolish the concept of interest as it is unethical and creates fundamental problems in the monetary system.

3. Embracing technology and efficiency: We need to redesign city systems to be sustainable and energy efficient. We have the blueprints for self-sustaining cities. We need to revolutionize the world of transportation. There is too much human error in driving a car and we are far beyond cars in the terms of technology. True massive public transportation systems should be implemented and free of charge. We need to start using our technology to provide the basic human needs for all people on the planet instead of concentrated wealth in the hands of a few men. We can use the same technology to provide power to the world or destroy the world. We need to stop burning fossil fuels and convert to clean energy. We have the technology to create Free Energy that is 100% clean for everyone on the planet. We no longer need to make houses out of concrete and wood, there is energy producing material that can be used on the outside of your house and power your whole house. Once we break free from the selfish profit motives that enslave the mentality of the world we can implement these cool technologies into our daily lives at no cost.

4. Create an honest form of democracy: Our current political system is infested with conflict of interest. Our last president was an oilman and our current president is in the pockets of pharmaceutical companies and other various corporations. The separation of BUSINESS and state is the most important thing we can do. How can someone make an honest law when it affects the profits of a company they are invested into? They can’t and our laws reflect that. We need to focus on true democracy where the voice of the people is the strongest form of government there is.

5. Get the corporations to do the right thing: Since corporations are so powerful they have a lot of influence on the public. Educating as many people in as many corporate boardrooms as possible could lead to great things. I do believe that not all big corporations are evil. They are just following the general guidelines of our capitalistic society. Some companies are already taking steps to clean energy and positive environmental impacts. The key to a better future is to understand the manufacturing process and being able to operate at maximum efficiency. We need to convince influential companies that maximizing profits is unethical and a thing of the past. We need to have more collaboration in the manufacturing process instead of too much unnecessary competition that leads to a waste of resources. Planned obsolescence should be a thing of the past, in fact illegal.

6. End all advertisement: Do you need to be told what you need to buy every second of every day? No. We know what is out there and don’t need to be constantly reminded. Advertising and marketing is an unethical waste of energy and resources and should also be made illegal. It is focused on profit and greed instead of the well being of the customer. If you make good products people will know about them. Advertisements are an insult to our intelligence and use unethical psychological tricks to get you to buy something that was designed to break before it normally should.

7. Realize that we are all one: This is the most important and without this step al hope is lost. This is the part that no human civilization has ever gotten right. War has always dominated and fear conquered love. With our current communication technology we have the chance to do something that has never been accomplished yet is talked about by every wise man to ever live. We are all one. In a literal sense we are all made up of the same parts of the same star taking in energy from the same star. We are all just forms of carbon taking different identity assigned by society. We have all forgotten the basic essence of life. We are all connected. Without you there could be no me. All religions share this universal concept but it is often forgotten due to so many frivolous differences. We are all one and we are trying to convince ourselves otherwise. We are trying to play our part so well that we actually believe we have our own identity and our own individuality. If that is true why can you feel someone staring at you from the back? Science is starting to embrace this concept and quantum physics has a theory that all memory is non-local (not in your brain). There is evidence everywhere you turn. It is time to understand and embrace the human family.

“If it’s true that we’re all from the center of a star, every atom on each of us from the center of a star, then we’re all the same thing. Even a Coke machine or a cigarette butt in the street in buffalo is made out of atoms that came from a star. They’ve all been recycled thousands of times, as have you and I. And therefore, it’s only me out there. So what is there to be afraid of? What is there that needs solace seeking? Nothing. There’s nothing to be afraid of because it’s all us.

The trouble is we have been separated by being born and given a name and an identity and being individuated. We’ve been separated from the oneness, and that’s what religion exploits. That people have this yearning to be part of the overall one again. So they exploit that. They call it god, they say he has rules, and I think it’s cruel. I think you can do it absent religion.” – George Carlin, 1937-2008

 

“…an extraterrestrial visitor examining the differences among human societies would find those differences trivial compared to the similarities…
Our lives, our past and our future are tied to the sun, the moon and the stars…
We humans have seen the atoms which constitute all of nature and the forces that sculpted this work…
And we, we who embody the local eyes and ears and thoughts and feelings of the cosmos, we have begun at least to wonder about our origins — star stuff contemplating the stars, organized collections of ten billion billion billion atoms, contemplating the evolution of nature, tracing that long path by which it arrived at consciousness here on the planet earth…
Our loyalties are to the species and to the planet. We speak for earth. Our obligation to survive and flourish is owed not just to ourselves but also to that cosmos ancient and vast from which we spring!
We are one species. We are star stuff harvesting star light.
” – “Who Speaks for Earth?” Carl Sagan, 1934-1996

About Andy Blanchard

I am an artist and a Business Management undergrad at University of Nevada, Reno. I am motivated to save the planet by changing the harmful and destructive business practices that have become standardized in the world today. The only way we can accomplish this is by shifting our values from privatization and profit to sustainability and longevity.We need to start using our technology responsibly and shift from short term profit to long term prosperity for the human race. We have the technology today to provide abundance for every human being on the planet. We are limited in implementing these practical solutions for all of our modern problems because of our current economic, monetary, and political systems have their own agenda. The concentration of wealth on this planet has reached new heights of unequal. We must continue the evolution of our social, economical, and political systems with the new technology and knowledge that we have today.
