instead of me whittering on about Free Planet all the time, why don't you tell me how you'd cope in a world without money.
I mean, "What's the big panic?"
The world no longer has money in it. Patents have been freed up from Private Control. Borders to human creativity have been dragged down. The earth is our ally in the war against slavery. There's a whole world of ideas no longer restrained by COMMERCIAL PROFIT concerns.
"But what about the real jobs that need doing, around the world?"
What, like being a sewage worker? There'll be no sewers on Free Planet. Sewers are a throw-back to EMPIRE and CITIES. What about being a City Administrator? There are no cities on Free Planet. Cities are a throwback to INDUSTRY. There is no industry, as such ... why is explained by the release of Patents from private to public ownership. Everybody is part of E.T.A. the Ethical Technological Application.
Those need-money jobs we import poorer (foreign) slaves into our Country for (then despise them) WON'T EXIST.
Slaves won't exist.
Country won't exist.
But this is beside the point, and I'm ranting again. I still have to hear from ANYBODY what's so bad about living without money. So, you'll 'not work' any more, so what? If you don't grow food and find water and shelter for your 'family' you'll all die. I think people will want to work at specific things, like HAVING FUN and CREATING and MERELY EXISTING and SHARING this beautiful homeworld with every one and every thing.
Will you be unhappy living in non-land-locked 'floating' housing while the earth heals itself?
Will you be unhappy losing a generation or five, so that balance can be restored to the organic life of this planet?
Will you be unhappy using only Creativity, Passion and Kinship in your everyday dealings with your fellow human?
I ask all these things in the vain hope that MONEY ISN'T EVERYTHING to you all, but I have the fear. The fear that some of you now nothing else and will revert back to 'coinage' or 'currency' or 'barter' or some other form of 'ownership' or 'asset' at some point in the coming Free Planet ethical-technology experiment.
"Remember, ARBEIT MACH FREI was above the gate at Auschwitz death camp," and Capitalism also states the same; liberty through work, riches from toil. For whom? That's the question one should always ask, "Qui bono?"
Look, it's simple - all the hoarders, all the deal-makers, all the bankers, all the global elites, all the slave-drivers who're ruining this planet by 'ownership of what isn't theirs' WILL LOSE THEIR ASSETS on Free Planet. Their crumbling stately homes, their right to STOLEN LAND as Private Asset, their EMPIRE will be gone. But it's no use crying over 'spilt milk', just get on with living as a free human. People from all walks of life will have to adapt or die and soon, our children will learn that 'without money' can be so life-enhancing, far better than 'corporate slavery' for money (i.e. their profit).
The silent, floating, hydroponic Free Planet modular housing can gather for 'seasonal ceremonies' like no other social/communal gatherings mankind's ever seen; a place where all the latest in thought and action can be showcased for all of mankind.
Going where we want, as a global populace.
Believing what we want, as a global populace.
Doing what we really enjoying doing, for ever, as a global populace.
And we can do all this, and more, without spending a single cent!
