Inspiring emotional thoughts, but...what is your template for change?
Ah, you have no plan? Just bitch about it on t'interwebs eh? lol
I'm all ears if you have something realistic to support over the current situation, but if you have nothing to share I shall just dismiss it as emotional dreaming.
Isn't that what speaking about changing the "American way" is? Emotional dreaming.....How in the hell is someone, anyone supposed to come up with a plan to get rid of our monetary system in place? I am speaking in what I feel humans are "supposed" to do while here, not be legal slaves for a fake monetary system that empowers people with the most fake money...When you break it down into thought, try to think about what money really is and what we are doing, what we are trying so hard to achieve in life....It is really a joke when you REALLY think about it in it's basic form...

I think more specifically, we do not need the presently defined 40 hour work week Employment that have today. We still need jobs, but that means we need to have the skills and time to fruitfully contribute to our family and community. Whether that be growing food, educating the young, healing the sick, building shelter, or maintaining the machines that should be doing a lot of busy work, there will always be tasks that need to doing at human hands.
That said, society could do quite nicely with every person working only 10 relatively compulsory hours a week. Undoubtedly, restlessness among the most intelligent and capable will still fuel innovation and achievement, but we must first free society from the illusion of money which drives the bogus belief that everyone needs to be "employed" in some idle redundant busy work in exchange for imaginary used to purchase inflationarily priced goods and other meaningless crap.

No we don't need jobs. This is one of the biggest distractions used against us. We need to work together and allow technology to replace jobs as a goal for humanity.
I'm afraid this reality in which we both seek, will be many years past our time. It seems the masterminds controlling the world are content in the progress they've made.
Most of us, whether you know or not, are begging for external assistance like the government. You probably think you are not. But think about it.

This world is too far gone for collectivism, a people, a race of benevolent beings all working for the common good of everyone. Evil exists to enslave and ultimately destroy humanity. To confuse, pervert and eliminate faith and spirituality....To ultimately end creation.
You are all slaves, whether you have a job or not. The vast majority have been led so far from the truth that you are literally lost souls.
Now get back to work, or go spend your entitlements collected from the efforts of others... Feed the system, feed the beast...

Although, I do feel sympathy for them. People have been heavily conditioned to live like this. They've grown comfortable and perhaps complacent. What we're discussing here, for some people, is unimaginable, the complete unknown. It's a big change, which can be scary. It's also a way of life, which despite common opinion, is not for the lazy. The best we can do is try our best to enlighten others, understand that it might be difficult to think about for some people - but assist and guide those who are interested, and lastly to create the life we want for ourselves.
