The Great Awakening





Two thousand years ago, a Roman senator suggested that all slaves wear white armbands to better identify them. Another senator objected, saying that if the slaves counted their numbers and realized how many of them there were, they might revolt. How are we kept from realising our true power? We are drowning in information... It is nearly impossible for an individual, fatigued by deficient food, sunk in debt and working 40 plus hours a week to read and study all the facts pertinent to surviving and thriving in the 21st century.

We are in a self sustained prison with eight guards sustained daily by our own thoughts and actions: 1. Sickness and disease 2. Debt and economic warfare 3.The Planetary War Machine 4. Food and water scarcity 5.A corrupt, centralized media. 6.Religion, Economics and other mind-control structures 7.Population 8. Hopelessness + Confusion

Humanity wants to escape, but how will we break out? Escapism through drugs, TV and other tactics are only temporary. A really effective jailbreak must be planned meticulously and carefully. Instead of being overwhelmed by the flood of negativity, it must be broken down, studied and understood, only then can a way out be found. So while the architects of war, slavery and pain face off with the architects of freedom and cooperation, what is the rest of humanity doing? What will the future bring and what does it depend on? Is it based on the secret decisions of a few thousand men and women, or will the near seven billion silent majority rise above division and petty separation, begin refusing evil and co-operating towards the good?

It is not necessary that everyone is inspired by this film, only 2 or 3 people out of every hundred waking up is enough to turn any community around.

Hello ATS,

This is an essay based on a forthcoming free feature length documentary that I hope to put up for free on ATS media portal. The entire transcript is longer and will be given away. The aim is to take the ideas we have been talking about on ATS to a mass audience. SOme of this stuff may be 'preaching to the choir' but there should be something for everyone.


*



This is a solution based documentary that looks forward to a time when there is less corruption in government and a more awakened populace. We present solutions to overburdened water supplies and poisoned wells, famine and toxic food, industrial pollution, the population debate, dishonest media, a lazy public, global apartheid, the mathematics of viral distribution, and more. This film is hazardous to mental health.... after watching it's no longer possible to complain of powerlessness and hopelessness. There are plenty of films exposing government corruption, but very few looking forward to a time when the crooks manipulating politics are defeated. This film shows how awesome life could be if humanity wakes up in time. Experts are waiting in every field, ready to provide solutions that are currently ignored and under-estimated by the mainstream. The infrastructure is there but the awareness isn't. Individuals are reacting to the crisis by becoming so fearful that they choose to bury themselves in alcohol, films, literature in an attempt to forget the Rome that is slowly burning around us.

The future we experience depends on each individual. There are deadly viruses and engineered super-plagues sitting in laboratories now, and people ready and planning to use them. Silos with weapons that could eradicate life on earth many times over, a control grid of micro-cfhips, 24 hour surveillance, and rationed sickening GMO food for the survivors of the latest war........ It is not necessary that everyone is inspired by this film, only 2 or 3 people out of every hundred waking up is enough to turn any community around.

The New Tech



Oversize Pic of Rotating Farm

A crucial tipping point has been reached early in the 21st century; the new wave of eco-technology and independence devices actually make genuine environmentalism more healthy, sensible and cost effective for the consumer. You can preach to a man for 20 years and he won't change, appeal to his wallet and he'll change tomorrow. It is not true that green tech is more expensive than polluting technology, in fact, the reverse is often true. Humans will stop thinking of themselves as consumers and polluters, and become producers and cleaners. The uneasy feeling of being surplus and unwanted will gradually leave the minds of young workers. The burden on the land will be greatly reduced as multi-levelled city-farms, home food cultivation and other advanced farming techniques become general knowledge. This is not a utopian day-dream. The technology to make the above vision a reality is currently in commericial production and being sold as we speak. Why do we continue to slave in a system that makes no one happy? Why is hemp not a household word, and why is hydroponics not taught in schools?

Centralisation Vs Decentralisation



No matter how intelligent, tough or streetwise anyone thinks they are, if food and water supplies were disrupted tomorrow society would descend into riots or anarchy within days. A grassroots planetary drive to localise essential food supplies, and only trade luxury foods, would decrease vulnerability and fear, and increase local power.

War Is Peace


Freedom is Slavery


Centralisation is Harmony



The 20th and 21st centuries have seen a gradual consolidation of power in all areas.We are told that bigger and bigger institutions mean peace, harmony and consensus, yet while these huge monoliths tower over us, humanity is more wracked with indecision, inequality and war than ever before. We have given our sense of wonder to religion, our economy to large banks, our freedom to politicians, glamour to film stars, our health to billion-dollar companies, our future to scientists, even our ability to think has been willingly handed over to journalists and television companies, who we trust to package all that is happening in the world into an easily digestible form every night. We are left with nearly nothing for ourselves. How to get it back? It's commonly assumed that in order to return power an individual or group must either resort to violence or submit to a lengthy and frustrating democratic process, endless debates and conferences. Yet a glance at history proves that many of the greatest changes in society came about through a third route, a gradual and then faster awakening of many individuals in society. In order to ensure survival, perhaps the only thing to do is decentralise. Cooperation and trade, of course, but only after each local household and community can provide energy, food and water for themselves, first to a limited extent for emergencies, then a partial decoupling from the grid, then maybe full freedom, and then becoming an individual contributor to the food, energy and water networks. How many of us suffer from the uneasy feeling of being an unwelcome guest in our own world?

From Wikipedia:

A central theme in decentralization is the difference between a hierarchy, based on authority two players in an unequal-power relationship; and an interface: a lateral relationship between two players of roughly equal power. The more decentralized a system is, the more it relies on lateral relationships, and the less it can rely on command or force.

Following this model, we can see that the first step is to decentralise in all the essential aspects of life, and move more decision making to a local level. In this film, we do not so much dwell on political theory but instead go to the core mechanics of society and show how life could be so much easier and less stressful.

Exponential Distribution





What's the Point

In sending a couple of Emails?

Many lies have been stripped away from the collective psyche in the past few decades, perhaps the final lie is our illusion of lack of collective power. In decades to come, the boom of cheap editing equipment and virally distributed video will be recognised by historians as the beginning of a Rennaisance more profound and world-changing than the invention of the printing press or the translation of the Bible from Latin. Compared with the distribution might of the BBC, CNN, or any other major news network, sending an email to five friends or telling a couple of colleagues about a new film may seem like a weak and pointless act. But word of mouth has a hidden power. A thought experiment with one person sending an email, mp3 or video to only two others shows how quickly an idea can propogate.

2, 4, 8, 16.... After 5 word-of-mouth contacts 16 people are aware of the film. 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512. After ten links in the chain over 500 people are reached. If the doubling continues the idea becomes tornadic.

512
1024
2048
4096
8192
16,384
32,768
65,536
131,072
262,144
524,228
1,048, 576

It's not that simple in the real world. Some people will not be inspired enough by the film to pass it on, colleagues will forget to watch it, emails will be ignored. Some people will not be energised enough to even spread the film at all. But others will send out emails to twenty friends, invite five people round to watch it, make a hundred flyers, set up a facebook site with 5000 hits. People can no longer whine about being powerless.



The fact that this awesome potential has so far only been used to spread private emails from colleagues and pictures of kids pretending to be Sith lords in basements is irrelavent, the technology and potential is there to be used if people desire, it is our choice whether to use it or waste it. In this critcal moment in history, perhaps humanity will decide to use the power of viral distribution to do something better than forward amusing emails.

The Rule of Seventy-Two



The Rule of Seventy-Two has nothing to do with obscure numerology or carnal rewards in the afterlife. It is a well known mathematical formula in banking circles which can also be applied to the spread of information. The rule can be used to accurately calculate the doubling time of any growing figure, whether it is a stock investment or group of people. If a truth documentary starts with, for example, one hundred viewers, and the viewership increases in size by exactly ten per cent every week, the rule of 72 predicts that the number of affected people will have doubled in size within 7 weeks.
Week One: 500
Week Two: 550
Week Three: 605
Week Four:665.50
Week Five:732.05
Week Six:805.28
Week Seven: 885.79
Week Eight:974.37
Week Nine: 1,071.81
Week Ten: 1,178.99
Week Fifteen: 1,898.75
Week Twenty: 3,057.95
Week Thirty: 7,931.55
Week Forty: 20,572.39
Week Fifty Two: 64,564.97
Week One Hundred and Eight: 13,427,257.46

In our hypothetical example, a film starting with a viewership of 500 and increasing by only ten percent every week will reach over 64 thousand people and exactly thirteen million, four hundred and twenty seven thousand, two hundred and fifty seven viewers within 2 years. Whatever way you calculate it, spreading films virally is a powerful act, and anyone sending an email to 5 friends can be assured that there are tens if not hundreds of thousands of other doing the same. It is this viral distribution which has got many underground films to the top of google video, and which has spread vital information worldwide in the last few years. The mathematics of paradigm shifts scientifically proves man's social power.

I'm Powerless, What Can I do?.


Food Sovereignty



Is a precarious food supply and the constant background hum of starvation an inevitable result of our technological progress, or is it a direction that we've drifted into due to corruption and laziness? the whole word fears food shortages. Any attempt to centrally plan farming has always failed, as bureaucrats fail to understand diverse ecosystems. Billions of people slave on the land for a pittance to provide toxic food for a sluggish and overfed first world. You either die of malnutrition or gluttony. Nearly a billion people are malnourished, with over 16,000 children dying a day from hunger related causes.

Hydroponics



Hydroponic systems range from simple home made devices to thousands of dollars and could suit a range of climates from a Paris apartment to an isolated village in a tropical country. Hydroponics, the art of growing plants without soil, produces massively higher yields than normal cultivation. A study in Bengal comparing hydroponic with normal production showed Potato yields jumped from 8 to seventy tons using hydroponics, rice from 900lb to 12,000 pounds,beetroot from 9,500 to 20,000 pounds and peas from 25,000 to 140,000 lbs. Tomato production increased from 10 tons to 180 tons. Soiless cultivation can be practiced in places otherwise inhospitable to agriculture. Now city dwellers and the inhabitants of mountainous, barren or desert conditions have the option to produce their own crops.

Over the coming years, hydroponics could gradually move control of food supplies back into the hands of local communites. Food sovereignty using advanced technology has profound political and social significance, because it means mankind will no longer live under the threat of famine or food shortages. The concept of food sovereignty is far more fundamental than a thousand fake talking points beamed over the airwaves from people we've never met and care nothing for us. In the same way as the mobile phone, television and computer systems were set up device by device, patiently and with many people cooperating, a decentralised, community city and hydroponic farm network can be set up by anyone without the help, assistance or permission of local authorities. In fact, some enlightened local governments are actually helping the process immensely through grants and tax rebates. In years to come, NGO's, charities and local governments may cooperate in bringing this technology to the furthest reaches of the Earth. Like every emergent technology, the price is decreasing by the month and one day all of humanity may grow some of their food.

Vertical Farming


A Vertical Farm

Vertical farming is a more exciting variant of hydroponics. Farmscrapers, 20 to 30 storey buildings with a hydroponic farm on each floor, have the ability to provide massive yileds per hectare and further reduce the burden on the land. Dickson Despommier, inventor of the concept, estimates that only 150 of these buildings could feed the entire city of New York for a year. Technology, the eternal double edged sword, has a bright side that can move us towards independence and self-reliance, away from fear and agricultural slavery. Vertical farms have many advantages over conventional farms.

From www.verticalfarm.com


Year-round crop production is a possibility; 1 indoor acre is equivalent to 4-6 outdoor acres or more, depending upon the crop (e.g., strawberries: 1 indoor acre = 30 outdoor acres)
No weather-related crop failures due to droughts, floods, pests
All VF food is grown organically: no herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers
VF returns farmland to nature, restoring ecosystem functions and services
VF greatly reduces the incidence of many infectious diseases that are acquired at the agricultural interface
VF dramatically reduces fossil fuel use (no tractors, plows, shipping.)
VF converts abandoned urban properties into food production centers
VF creates sustainable environments for urban centers
VF creates new employment opportunities
VF could reduce the incidence of armed conflict over natural resources, such as water
and land for agriculture


Operational Vertical Farms





Farmscrapers are probably decades away, but a company called Valcent has started to produce affordable vertical farms that are well within the reach of poorer communities. The availability of these farms means armchair activists will not be able to complain about lazy or uncooperative governments, as these farms are within the price range of nearly anyone. Armed with this information, people can dream of a future world of farmscrapers, and make the first steps in the present by setting up their own hydroponic farm. Not one human being needs to go hungry ever again. Only one in a hundred people on Earth need to understand and act on this information to spread it worldwide.

Making the first model would have an estimated cost of 50 million, the price of about 10 cruise missles. Continuing with the example of New York, 50 million dollars could be collected in as little as a month, if only one in ten inhabitants contributed a dollar a day for a month. If the citizens of New York, London, L.A. are as sassy and streetwise as they claim to be, this would be easy for them. It only takes a few local leaders to get it together.

[align=center]There's too many people, repeat.[/align]

(The following was written by another author, I have permission to include it in the documentary)


The most obese, violent, ignorant countries that have the biggest ecological impact on the world are the most vocal in calling for depopulation. Many citizens of industrialised countries are open and unrepentant about wanting to see people starve, and thus turn a blind eye to wars and famine. Overpopulation is one of the greatest of modern myths. It has become the bogeyman used to scare us into accepting desperate measures to curb this threat to our way of life A vivid picture is painted of our being submerged in the struggle for survival. We will drown in a sea of people, gasping for the room to breathe, as the last square foot of inhabitable land sinks beneath the overwhelming tide of surging humanity. Asked to name the most overpopulated countries in the world, most people would probably come up with a list of places like India, the Philippines, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, maybe even Brazil.



These countries are surely teeming with people, so much so that there isn't enough room for everybody to get a decent living, every one of them crammed to the borders with poor and starving millions. Most would be rather surprised to find that the facts flatly contradict this impression. Yet Brazil, home of decimated rainforests, shanty towns the size of major European cities, some of the poorest people on Earth in their millions, an apparent glimpse of our possible future - has a population density of only 0.08 people per acre, giving plots of more than 817,960 square yards (827 metres square) for each individual, or areas of 676 acres for the `average' two-parent, two child family - more than enough to live on by most peoples standards. After all in Holland, squeezed into their paltry 0.294 of an acre, or one and half acres for the family, they seem to do a lot better than the Brazilians, in a lot less space.



Indeed by looking you can see there is absolutely no correlation between population density and wealth per capita, with Hong Kong, home of some of the worlds most expensive real estate, and many powerful worldwide companies, far outstripping the rest of the world when it comes to overpopulation - yet you don't see people cramming the borders trying to escape - in fact you see precisely the opposite, with thousands of boat people trying to smuggle themselves in, seeking a better life! In Britain, there is an average population density nearly half that of Holland at 0.98 people per acre (5000 plus square yards each), almost identical to the 0.99 people per acre living in the Phillipines, another supposedly poor,crowded country. But even a densely populated island like Britain is nowhere near as crowded as you might be led to believe. And led is the operative word here. Ask who is leading who to believe such a blatantly flawed view of reality, and also why, the answers are interesting! If we can break through the food supply and population myths we have the chance to be living in a true golden age now, a real renaissance. The relentless onslaught of environmental statistics dehumanisies us and causes us to feel like a cancer, polluting, destroying, guilty to be alive for our over-consumption.

Water Sovereignty





Atmospheric water generators are a recent invention that have the potential to revolutionise the way man relates to the environment and the earths water resources. In a relatively simple device, air is passed over a cooling coil, and water condenses and collects, and is filtered to provide clean drinking water. Despite understandable fears, the water has often tested better than tap water. The media is whipping up fear over dwindling water resources. Now recent discoveries of abundant oil in America Cuba and Russia have shown peak-oil to be a laughable hoax, the press seek to perpetuate the artificial scarcity scam by pushing a sense of lack over another abundant resource. There is no lack, there is only corruption and mismanagement. Bringing Atmospheric Water Generators to the whole world will not happen over-night, yet the technology is being mass-produced and sold as we speak.
Another dangerous situation could change within a couple of decades, or sooner.

Like all technology the price is lowering. How long before it becomes affordable? One day there will be a freestanding unit that can be put anywhere in the world. There is no monopoly on the technology and it is currently being sold.

At a current price of over one thousand dollars per unit, this is over 3 years wages for some of the poorest individuals on the planet. No one said getting pure water to the developing world would be easy, and no one said it would happen overnight. Without the help of large organisations, it will be a painstaking task that will have to be done village by village, household by household over years. Some people are rising to the challenge and projects to introduce these to the poorest areas of the world are underway now. The direction of the technology is getting smaller and cheaper. How long before someone invents a solar powered AWG, how long before hand cranked models emerge and are mass produced in China? If the industrial world can export guns they can export water tech as well. The waterisation of the developing world can be done by individuals. The distribution model will have to flow like water, working around difficult circumstances and situations.

Is there a way around direct selling?
Can NGOs buy this technology?
Can charity factories be set up in Africa with the parts shipped from Asia, a major producer?
Can micro-banks fund loans for AWGs?
Can local entrepreneurs provide subsidised water for rural areas?

The people who solve these questions will be pioneers. While atmospheric water may not reach the very poorest countries in the world this decade, any generator sold will take the burden off a country's water supply liter by liter. 30 years ago, it was inconceivable that billions of people would have mobile phone and internet access. The waterisation of Africa and the developing world is a far easier task.

Entrepreneurs and AW



AWG is a billion dollar market for the entrepreneur. Distributorships can be secured for little or no money, and if a distributorship is unavailable the entrepreneur has the option of manufacturing and selling homemade devices. In countries such as America and England there will be a multiplicity of laws prohibiting this, but not all countries are so restrictive. Once knowledge of AW reches critical mass, through the combined efforts of many individuals with existing charities. Competing SME's worldwide will scramble for local market share, bringing costs down for the consumer.

NOTE: In the main film there is a reference to a plant that could change the Earth beyond recognition. This has been removed from the ATS text to respect forum rules. Thanks Staff.


Ending Global Apartheid





Don't tell yourselves nice stories about Rosa Parks and Halle Berry while half the world is on less then 2 dollars a day.

The new technologies and industries could go towards ending global apartheid. There are plenty of people in the industrialised world who do not want to see the rest of the world aquire the same standard of living as them. Many westerners openly believe that the world is over-populated and quietly support starvation and death by dirty water in the developing world. Forgetting moral or human arguments, consider the issue from a strategic perspective. Population figures for Africa are projected to be 1.2 billion by 2050. Are we going to have angry, starving, sick neighbours or will we contribute to the raising of their standards of living by providing technology instead of loans? Does the industrialised world want the borders stormed and floods of illegal immigrants coming in search of a better standard of living, or do we want truth and reconciliation as billions work together to end global apartheid. There *may* be a small spike in population as basic needs tech is provided, but as we have shown, population is at nowhere near critical levels as long as the right technology is used. It has actually been proven that as income levels increase birth rates go down. Currently the first world has a stabilised population, and only the third world has a growing population. Could desparation have something to do with it?

Causes and Solutions to Economic Migration



We should examine the root causes of human migration in the early 21st century instead of just accepting it as an inevitable fact of life. It was not always like this and it won't be like this inthe future. It is up to us to make a smooth power shift. Why do people migrate, aside from the drive to see far flung and exotic places, most migration is influenced by economic factors; the drive every human being has to seek better living conditions for themselves or their families. It is understandable that someone earning 100 dollars a month is going to want to go to a country where they can earn 1000. This is a no brainer.

"Pressure is an effect which occurs when a force is applied on a surface." Wikipedia



The social systems mankind uses seem at times tailor made to pressurise societies to the greatest extent possible. Various natural structures, farming, water supply, economy, are stressed to breaking point and beyond daily. There are easier ways to do things though, and the new tech attempts to relieve pressure in any overburdened system. Instead of overburdening the already stressed social structures of the first world with a disenfranchised slave class we suggest it would be better to restore dignity to the migrant's home countries by selling or giving devices which provide them a dignified life. A town of, for example ten thousand people in Guatemala with a couple of thousand potential emigrees, could be provided with basic needs technology, easing the burden on the infrastructure. Diffusing pressure at the source of immigration would diffuse pressure on the receiving country. Mutual benefit.

Summary



1) Poverty and Desparation based migration could be diffused by providing basic needs tech in home countries. 2) Economic migration could be diffused by starting the new industries in the migrant's home countries. 3) The industries that could go a long way towards resurrecting migrants home countries are ignored but NOT SUPRESSED by the majority of world governments. 4) Strengthening another country does not automatically weaken others, this is a baseless, infantile assumption.5) Technology is outstripping population, NOT the other way round, it is awareness and communication that is lagging behind.

"But why the hell should I have to pay for people in another country?"

We do not want to dwell on negativity in this film, but we are sure that when the fullest extent of corporate and military manipulation comes to light rich countries will be falling over themselves to provide the new tech to the developing world.

"Sorry, its not my problem, I never did anything wrong... I just don't care."

Fine, but think of the markets that are going to open up in the near future as this awareness spreads. Sell for love or sell for money, as long as units roll out.

Daily Struggle For Basic Needs



The daily struggle for basic necessities is a major part of existence for many people on Earth. The new wave of affordable paradigm shifting technology cuts through economic waffle and political sloganeering to allow households to provide energy, good food and clean water for themselves. Consider the effect this technological revolution will have on the lives of the poorest citizens on Earth, nearly half the world lives on a dollar a day.

Once basic needs are met, this may have a ripple effect on violent and petty crime, as desperation and the endless cycle of poverty is removed from people’s lives. Is there any need to send and army of Phd's to do a five year study to prove this, or is this just basic common sense? Scarcity, whether natural or artificial, has kept mankind in servitude, fighting each other for all of recorded history. A one off payment for a hydroponic system, water generation unit, home energy kit is a one off payment that partially removes a household from the rat race. Once this technology is acquired, a cloud of blinding fear lifts and the mind can turn to the higher aspects of life. Perhaps that is what we were always meant to do.

Some academics argue that the struggle for survival is an integral part of any economy, and that society will stagnate when the motivational force of homelessness or starvation is removed, but there are other factors that motivate a drive for excellence. The great scientists, writers, businessmen of all time are motivated by something more than a struggle for survival; it is a quest for perfection and service to society. After these basic technologies are provided local and national economies may resurrect themselves as the strength and tenacity of these people, forged by years of hardship, is free to explore further. The inane prattling of intellectuals and economists is becoming increasingly irrelevant as a new wave of entrepreneurs slowly wake up to cheaper, more efficient and more competitive technology. With a non-compliant media and sluggish corporations, people are taking the paradigm shift into their own hands.

The Energy Revolution





Advances in energy technology occupy a strange grey area in the media; not exactly suppressed but not exactly world news either. Why does news of every flood and tornado hit the front page, but solar or wind power breakthroughs are in the back of the newspapers? Solar and Wind are becoming cheaper and cheaper. Solar’s price per watt is approaching and even beating the nearest competitor, coal. Within a few years, solar paint will become a reality. Scientists at various universities are racing to pefect the technology. Eco writers are speculating that entire surfaces could be turned into solar collectors. A google search for Solar breakthrough returns better results every month. The most important factor in an eventual free society is a three way convergence of buyers, sellers and communicators to raise any breakthrough out of obscure articles in the eco-underground to the high street.

Roughly 90 per cent of the world's photovoltaic systems are grid-tied systems. A self-powered home is thought to be an unrealistic, expensive dream. There is a common misconception that it costs about 20 to 30 thousand dollars to solarise a house, understandably beyond the reach of many families during an economic collapse. It is just not true that solarising or turbinising a home costs anywhere near so much. Enterprising individuals are taking advantage of public ignorance to make huge profit margins on simple technology. Who can blame them? With a bit of ingenuity and a couple of spare weekends, the price of providing minimal solar or wind is much much lower, closer to 1 or 2 hundred USD per panel.

In the developed world, solar or wind can only realistically provide ten to twenty per cent of the average household's needs. The average household consumption in the developing world is 800 to 1200 kilowatt hours per month, a wind turbine can only provide a tenth of this. However, this 10 or twenty per cent makes a critical difference in the geography of world power. Imagine a world where a cloud of fear lifted because houses, hospitals and transport networks were no longer completely at the mercy of a power outage. In the event of a breakdown society can still continue, no-one needs to live the desperate scenarios of a thousand apocalyptic B movies. In the developing world, a solar panel or wind turbine can easily provide for a house's entire needs.

Parallel Initiatives





There are two major mistakes commonly made when focusing on the energy of the future. The first is to endlessly talk about helium 3, zero point energy and other rumoured secret projects projects, forgetting the fact that people are in need of basic tech now. The initiative to bring suppressed technology to the public is commendable but it is not known when it'll be successful. Zero point energy devices may come out in a few months or in twenty years. While we support the effort to free these, the unavailability of these devices should not hinder the drive to provide Africa with basic needs tech with whatever is to hand now. A battlefield medic uses whatever he has, and does not complain that better medicine isn't available. You can't tell a village suffering without basic technology now: "Wait until Helium 3 and nano-crystalline become available, see you in five years." The opposite end of the spectrum is to invest too heavily in technology that may become obsolete in a few years. No one wants a warehouse full of redundant cells using yesterdays technology, and with the exponential progression of new tech this is a real danger. Speed and flexibility are the way forward. The way forward is through concurrent, parallel initiatives. An initiative to free the suppressed technology, but never letting it distract us from the tools available now. The situation in some parts of Africa is at emergency levels now and practical thinking is needed.



[align=center]Two Green Tech SME's[/align]

In Manila Philipines, Bryan Wilson is converting dangerously polluting 2-strokes to 90 per cent emission reduced engines for 350 dollars. Drivers make their money back on saved fuel costs in a few months. The city cleans up it’s dangerous levels of pollution, 2-stroke owners save money and Wilson makes a fair profit. How long before this model is copied all over the world?



Paraguayan Elsa Zaldívar won the 2008 Rolex Award for Enterprise for her project that trains women how to make homes from an innovative mixture of loofah and plastic waste. The low cost housing problem has an end in sight, forests are deforested much slower, pressure is taken of landfill and a new industry is born for rural families, who can compete with soy and cotton industries.

1) Self-organisng, grassroots, local response to local needs.
2) Eco tech cheaper than polluting tech.
3) Green entrepreneur makes money.

There is big money to be made from resurrecting the Earth.

The Green Tech SME / Entrepreneur



The green tech entrepreneur, along with the alternative media, is the individual which will end up transforming the Earth. True, many people are lazy and lack initiative, but this is a blessing to the small percentage of individuals in any community who are ahead of the game, and constantly searching for new ideas and businesses. Due to the traumatising spectre of poverty that haunts us, we have a fear based hoarding mentality. Win/lose is deeply ingrained in our psyche and anyone putting forward a win/win paradigm or solution is dismissed as naive or impractical. In fact, win/win solutions are currently being implemented all over the planet. In decades to come, a network of millions of small businesses and distributors will bring solar energy, wind turbines, and maybe later other hidden technology to energy hungry homes, providing new standards of living. Vertical farms will go up in homes, rooftops and skyscrapers around the world, water will come straight from the air. This is a reality we could be living in, and it makes sense to visualise this instead of wars, strife and famine.

Village Of The Future



It is possible to have a village, sometime in the future, where the inhabitants are producing five times the amount of food they normally produce using cheap hydroponic vertical farms, where light is provided using hand cranked lanterns, where water comes from atmospheric water generators, houses are made from recycled loofah and plastic, and energy comes from cheaply made wind turbines or solar panels. Inhabitants will not be totally dependent on subsistence farming any more. Consider the environmental footprint of such a village. It is pretty much self-sustaining. It pollutes little, provides abundant food, does not take water from others. Is there any reason not to work towards providing this? Our example uses current technology only, what will man dream up in ten years?

How to Communicate info about Micro-Generated Household Energy to your local area or developing Countries



1. Locate documentary film, article, seller of innovative and helpful products.
2. Find Website, NGO, discussion forum, Charity, Local Website
3. Send Link/Letter, make phonecall.
4. Repeat.

Simple as it sounds, this is the low-intensity viral formula that has put Alex Jones films on the first page of google. Millions of low intensity viral agents talking to a couple of people at a time. The 'friend-of-a-friend' webs are now a million strong.
What about low income families that can't afford these devices? 1. Half of Africa is on less than a dollar a day, the other half isn't. 2. A new paradigm needs to come about, where people are not measured in terms of dollars, but in terms of intelligence and manual power. Innovative models of thought are needed. Barter and micro-loans. There are many ways around the current system. Local currencies may be a way to completely regenerate rural areas.

Village Factory: Example model: it would be possible to set up a small factory in a large empty room, where component kits are shipped in from NGO's, and local entrepreneurs teach 10 people how to make wind turbines. The deal could be: Make five turbines and you can take one home for yourself. Rural workers could come for five days and leave with a solar kit. The entrepreneur could cover costs by selling the surplus to the new middle classes. Handcranked Energy: Handcranked energy is a cute gimmick in the developed world, but a desperately needed invention for countries without energy infrastructure. Lamps that sell for less than 50 US dollars can provide 2 hours of brightness for any family with a few minutes of cranking. Wholesale, the price is closer to 10 dollars per lamp. They could be made in NGO run village factories for 5 dollars per unit. Make 5 get one free. Store bought batteries will one day become obselete.

Beyond Solar and Wind



"Oh man I read on this site they've got this device that can..." Solar and Wind is just the beginning. There have been whispered rumours of all sorts of technologies denied by the patent offices, and black projects. It's imperative to raise awareness of these issues, as success in this field means one day each household may have it's own supply of electricity. The drive to release the new technology is currently active. Stephen Greer of the Disclosure project has campaigned for governments to release zero point devices for years.




The Psychology Of Hopelessness





From yourdictionary.com Hopelessness: irremediable, remediless, incurable. 2. forlorn, disconsolate, dejected. Hopeless, despairing, despondent, desperate all describe an absence of hope. Hopeless is used of a feeling of futility and passive abandonment of oneself to fate.

Hopelessness is a feeling, not a fact. The belief, not the knowledge, that a situation is beyond saving. There is an widespread unspoken belief that anyone attempting to provide solutions to current world challenges is naive or impractical. Man the explorer and adventurer has turned into man the know-it-all defeatist, head and spine smashed in, bleating excuses for his inactivity and confusion. Anyone suggesting alternative routes and modes of thoughts is patted on the head and dismissed as a dreamy idealist. The fact remains that humanity has faced up to and triumphed over innumerable problems in the past, and will do so again and again in the future.

"Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?... Has it ever occurred to your, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?... The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking—not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness." O.Brien, 1984, George Orwell.




These are only a brief overview of the many tactics man uses to stomp on new ideas. We have fallen so far we do not even know how to think any more. Many ideas are smothered on by blow hards and defeatists using nothing more than a mixture of faulty logic and passive aggressive contempt. This is no small or unimportant matter. The first midwife who noticed that still births decreased when he washed his hands presented his findings before the royal academy. He was asked why he though this was, and replied that it was because of tiny invisible creatures that lived on his hands and caused disease, and was promptly thrown into a sanatorium. It took the British navy over forty years to accept that citrus fruits could cure scurvy. Thousands of sailors died slow and painful deaths in before the idea was accepted.

In the beginning of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, The Director of Hatcheries and Conditioning shows a group of students around a factory that produces human beings and conditions them for various roles in a dystopian future society. Commands and affirmations are played into rows of hundreds of identical babies to lock in ideal thought processes and minimise individuality, desires and competitiveness. In George Orwell's 1984 the inhabitants of a future London are remotely scrutinised by video cameras every moment of their lives for anti-government thought.

How lucky for us that we don't live in a society like that.

Maybe whoever set up and runs our society doesn't need conditioning hatcheries and telescreens in every room, because due to a relentless onslaught of chemicals, nutrition deprived food and television man has taken it upon himself to be his own guard. The censorship bureau has been removed from government offices and implanted stright into the minds of millions and billions of people. Man has become a self-regulating automaton, automatically repeating opinions given to him. Any attempt at original thought, as man knows on a gut level that something is wrong, is automatically channeled into a fake left/right paradigm. A hundred fake debates lay waiting in layers to catch and exhaust any attempt at free thinking. Censorship is accomplished by flooding and bright lights in a meticulously thought out psychological coup d-etat. We would like to stress, however, that television and the media are only a part of this. The weak half of man that focuses on groupthink and herd mentality has brought this upon himself.

The Many Faces Of Stupidity





Bad Debating Tactics





Assertion: "It is possible to provide technology to enable every community on earth to make clean water and food for itself within a few years." Response: "Oh I suppose governments are going to suddenly buy millions of these things and just give them away everything'll be alright in a few months. Carry on dreaming, hippy."
STRAWMAN: The debater has inflated the original statement to something absurd and unrealistic, and proceeds to knock the false argument down.

Assertion: "It is possible to provide technology to enable every community on earth to make clean water and food for itself within a few years." Response: "Oh, and what a coincidence that your friend runs an Atmospheric Water Generator company, convenient..." QUESTIONING MOTIVES: Assuming that an argument is false because the assertor stands to profit from it.

Assertion: "It is possible to provide technology to enable every community on earth to make clean water and food for itself within a few years." Response: "Oh and what if you fail and people continue to starve to death?" FALSE DILEMMA: An attempt to rub out the middle ground in the debate. It may not be possible to provide everyone with basic needs tech but steps can be made towards that end goal.

Assertion: "It is possible to provide technology to enable every community on earth to make clean water and food for itself within a few years." Response: "Sorry but within 10 months all of Asias water will have run out so scientists say that you're too late. Vagueness: The opponent makes a pretence of citing facts but on close examination there's no evidence or studies cited.

Assertion: "It is possible to provide technology to enable every community on earth to make clean water and food for itself within a few years." Response: "My cousin ran a hydroponic farm and he's a drug dealer and a liar!" AD HOMINEM: An attack on a person rather than an idea, used in the media every day.

Assertion:"It is possible to provide technology to provide clean water and food to the entire world within a few years." Response:"Sorry but there's just too many people, and that's a FACT, so your plan's nonsense." PLAYING ON COMMONLY HELD FANTASIES: No real scientific backing to this statement.

Assertion:"It is possible to provide technology to provide clean water and food to the entire world within a few years." Response:You're a dreamer, hippy, fantasist and have your head in the clouds. NAME CALLING: Used all the time, especially when alcohol is involved.

Assertion:"It is possible to provide technology to provide clean water and food to the entire world within a few years." Response: I've studied environmental science for 4 years, and I've read over 20 books on the subject, so I think I know what i'm talking about." APPEAL TO EDUCATION, a.k.a My resume's bigger than yours: The opponent appeals to his education and academic snobbery instead of the facts.



Along with faulty logic, negatives and regressive will use brute emotion to face down anything outside their worldview. Contempt, Anger, Depression, Condescension, Smirks and Sighs. Be aware.

Embodying the Words of Prophets



The devices and systems detailed in this film go further than words, by embodying man's highest ideals in their very components and circuits. An atmospheric water generator, nothing more than a jumped up air conditioner welded to a purifier, embodies respect for the Earth and mankind in its operation, by not taking or polluting rivers and streams, by not charging daily for something that should be a birthright, by providing water abundantly and equally for entire villages. Hydroponic and Aeroponic farms restore sovereignty and self reliance to man, bring equality and fairness to food distribution, and let almost anyone be a contributor to a planet with abundant food resources. Solar and Wind turbines and beyond, bring a dignified quality of life without hurting or taking from anyone. Nothing is polluted, nothing is poisoned.

Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Taoism of the world have spoken of a golden age of mankind, but without a properly thought out plan their words ring unattainable and hollow. Now, after millenia of hardship and suffering, we have the technology and opportunity to bring a new time for man into being liter by liter, kilo by kilo, watt by watt. Basic needs technology turns the visions of saints and prophets into futures within our grasp. Now it is up to billions of people to cooperate to erect the scaffolding of their great dreams. Following the propositions in this film, any individual can work towards a better time. Each individual effort and action, whether in communication or trade, moves the planet a nano-metre towards balance.

The Economy Of Peace



The over-paid and over-educated economists of the 21st century argue that restriction of goods is a necessary evil in order to keep people in work, yet as we have shown, there are 3 huge industries; Atmospheric water, Hemp in its 25,000 forms, and Hydroponic farming- that will keep billions of hands and minds hard at work for decades to come. Furthermore, once these industries have spread over the whole world, man's struggle for basics will have been eradicated to one extent or another, and he can turn his mind to other things, perhaps art, history, literature, more science, more spiritual thought, more innovation, more cooperation. What would happen if a mid-level charity was to go to a remote tribe and give them basic needs technology. Would they need to work 40 hour weeks to sustain their system?

Currency is a Medium of Exchange, Debt is a Medium of Control



We should be moving toward local currencies not global or European currencies.

David Korten, MbA, Stanford University Graduate School of Business.

Local Currencies



From Ithaca Hours Overview, By Paul Glover:


Here in Ithaca, New York, we've begun to gain control of the social and environmental effects of commerce by issuing over $66,000 of our own local paper money, to over 1,400 participants, since 1991. Tens of thousands of purchases and many new friendships have been made with this cash, and millions of dollars value of local trading has been added to the Grassroots National Product. We printed our own money because we watched Federal dollars come to town, shake a few hands, then leave to buy rainforest lumber and fight wars. Ithaca's HOURS, by contrast, stay in our region to help us hire each other. While dollars make us increasingly dependent on transnational corporations and bankers, HOURS reinforce community trading and expand commerce which is more accountable to our concerns for ecology and social justice.

Here's how it works: the Ithaca HOUR is Ithaca's $10.00 bill, because ten dollars per hour is the average of wages/salaries in Tompkins County. These HOUR notes, in five denominations, buy plumbing, carpentry, electrical work, roofing, nursing, chiropractic, child care, car and bike repair, food, eyeglasses, firewood, gifts, and thousands of other goods and services. Our credit union accepts them for mortgage and loan fees. People pay rent with HOURS. The best restaurants in town take them, as do movie theaters, bowling alleys, two large locally-owned grocery stores, our local hospital, many garage sales, 55 farmer's market vendors, the Chamber of Commerce, and 300 other businesses. Hundreds more have earned and spent HOURS who are not in the HOUR Town directory.


A world without currency, with no medium of exchange, whether it is sea shells, paper notes or silver coins, is impractical because man will always seek out common objects to barter, such as the cigarettes and drugs used in jails. the majority of the world will always need some sort of currency to trade, but a world where debt has less power, or a community without debt that can provide abundant resources for itself using new technology, with SME's developing and selling new technology is a possibility within our grasp. It only needs local leaders to become aware of the possibilities and work towards them. Therefore, we advocate a genuine free market system with non debt local currencies and abundant basic needs technology. Maybe metal backed currencies are another, saner alternative, as a viable transition to a fairer society.

Earth's Economy, 2009

Imagine a town



...where one in every fifty, or twenty or ten people owns a hydroponic system so the majority of food is produced locally very cheaply, and given away or exchanged for other services using a local currency. Where there is no water grid, because water comes straight from the air from solar or wind powered atmospheric water generators, where medicine is herbal, local and cheap, where a majority of people own their own land. Where hemp is a large part of the economy.

Where the air is cleaner because more electric cars and bicycles are bought every day move in the streets. Where a dozen alternative energy providers compete for market share providing progressively cheaper and more efficient home energy systems. This town is not a consumer and polluter, but a contributor, working towards providing surplus electricity, water and food to other towns. The trajectory can be reversed. A town starts off as a polluter, goes through a mid point where it has zero impact on the world, and ends up as a contributor to it's local environment. All of this is attainable within a few decades with inexpensive commercial technology that can be delivered to any house in the world. Pioneer projects are currently in blooming all over the world, and many communities, some in the middle of large cities, have attained a degree of freedom from the negative grid. Governments worldwide are not helping, but many are not hindering these projects either, wracked as they are with their own internal strife. Therefore, it is impossible for an individual to blame failure to implement one of these systems on governments.

If better societies ever exist on Earth, they do not need to come about through government leadership, just local leaders, pioneers, communicators and entrepreneurs. It is naive to expect people to set up a town like this for free, so the massive economic benefits for pioneers must be emphasised. There is nothing wrong with trade, human beings love to interact and exchange goods from far away lands. The bustle of the marketplace is an integral part of human life. If trade takes place on a solid bedrock of secure, cheap and abundant food, free water and clean decentralised energy, it will become an incentive for improvement in science, economics and other social fields and the sky will really become the limit.

Is Money The Root Problem? Thought Experiments



Imagine if debt and credit accounts across the world were zeroed and then everyone was credited with 10 million dollars.

What would happen?
A massive party?
Riots?
Chaos?
Social breakdown and starvation?

Now imagine if all accounts were returned to zero and everyone was only issued with one euro.

What would happen?
A massive party?
Riots?
Chaos?
Social breakdown and starvation?

Now the same experiment with a quadrillion dollars per person, then with 100 dollars. What happens? Is there more social or less social unrest in different models. Why? Would there be riots if everyone was given the same amount of money?
Would society break down? Are we that stupid? Would there be riots over too much money? There are already plenty of riots over scarcity, at least abundance would give us something different to riot about. We cannot walk away from this system we have created, we have to transmute it and dismantle it from the inside.

If the debt system continues, the only way forward is to regenerate local markets by raising awareness of new technology and adopting local food, water and currency supplies. Is love of money the root of all evil? It's been said by many that money is the root of all mankind's problems, but money is only a representation of forces.

Currency represents Trust and Power.
Issuing debt represents Greed and Need to Control.
Being in debt represents Frustration and Lack of basics.

Lets not go round and round in an abstract debate though. The point of this film is to stimulate action, not a million pointless discussions. Both economists and workers believed that the poorest 3 billion need to be kept in poverty 'For the sake of the Earth', but that position is undefendable now that awareness is reaching the new wave of devices.

If we confront, without dishonesty and self-deception, the four sick myths of;

Overpopulation
Undisposable waste
Scarcity
Zero-Sum systems

Humanity can triumph over the selfish hoarding mindset and enter a better time.

The Logistics of Peace





There is a finite amount of pain on the Earth. A finite number of clean liters of water are needed to provide adequate drinking supplies. There is a finite amount of good food needed to provide daily adequate nutrition for 6.7 billion people. A finite number of kilowatts are needed to power basic needs technology, a finite number of bacteria and viruses exist, a finite amount of magnesium, potassium, omega 3, salt, iron and other nutrients needed daily by 6.7 billion people for full and vibrant health, a finite number of bricks and panels are needed to build a finite number of houses. A finite amount of hand cranked lamps, radios, mp3 players, laptops and mobile phones are needed to allow people to forge links and connections in their local communities and worldwide.

The task of driving poverty from the Earth once and for all is massive but quantifiable.


Beginning






“Iron rusts from disuse; water loses its purity from stagnation ... even so does inaction sap the vigour of the mind.”



-Leonardo Da Vinci

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”



-Dale Carnegie

Hopefully, plenty of people will be energised by this film. Many, however, will find one excuse or another to rationalise their inaction and hope that the problems we face will go away if they ignore them. "I'm not interested in politics, I just want to get on with my life and mind my own business." is a common phrase nowadays. In a perfect world this would be fine, but the world is far from perfect. If we do not cooperate to make a saner society then we might not be able to just get on with our lives for much longer. Everything is not fine. We are sitting ducks waiting for the next famine, drought, war, economic collapse. We have debated this stuff hundreds and hundreds of times on and off the net and heard the same five or six excuses blindly repeated by hundreds of different people.

The Seven Evil Geniuses of Inaction



(Title stolen and altered from an essay called, The Six Evil Geniuses of Essay Writing)



The first excuse to do nothing about this film will be to adopt a pseudo-wise, jaded tone and dismiss it as so much impractical nonsense. The defeatist know-it-all. The second excuse will be to play on the myth that a negative ending to the situation we find ourselves in is inevitable, the 'resistance is futile' card. The third excuse we be to focus on a small part of the film and attempt to discredit it on the basis of some minor fact. The fourth excuse for inaction will be to do nothing on the basis that the task is too big, for example. "There's no way they can build enough units to reach the poorest people in the world." The Fifth is the local/global card. "Hmmm, well that's great on a local level but there's no way that could go global." The Sixth, and most subtle excuse, will be to focus on some external group, local government, an institution, a political party, and claim that you would love to do something if it wasn't for those d**n Republicans/Democrats/Banks/Moon. An even subtler subset of this excuse is spending huge amounts of time lobbying these groups for something you could have easily done yourself. The Seventh is self-congratulatory elitist bonding. "Ohhh man, exactly... EXACTLY!!! That's so right, RIGHT ON! Me and you, we're on the same wave, but it's PEOPLE maaaan, PEOPLE just don't get us."

The only really acceptable excuses are: 1) I'm too tired. 2) I'm too scared. 3) I don't care.

"It is a little known fact but when it comes to creative ideas the majority of people are creative geniuses. Your mate is bound to be one of them. It’s just that all these folks never dare to translate their creative brilliance into reality. We guess a couple of libraries could be filled with the reasons why they never attempt it. Something to do with mother and when she first said, “No!”-The Manual (How to have a number one the easy way) - The KLF

The Choice



Every single person aware of this film can no longer claim powerlessness. We are now offered a choice. A choice between hunger and abundant food, dangerously overburdened water supplies and water straight from the air. Angry, deprived neighbours scrambling to get into our country or mature cooperation and reparations. Off grid green energy or precarious national grids. It's not that difficult, 5 minutes spreading it to a few people every day, what's the big deal? Small effort for potentially massive results. Perhaps Armageddon has been postponed due to lack of interest and man has been granted a stay of execution. We all dream the same nightmares and have the same dreams, decent food, a decent house, clean water, laughter, fun. What is the big deal? This is not some happy clappy film about how we could all be best friends forever. There is too much bad blood and anger on Earth for that. But at least a way forward could be worked out, laying aside differences and the false debates we're thrown like bones to chew over.

Somehow, there has been an explosion of understanding in billions of people simultaneously. Man could work his way out from sickness and disease by focusing on inexpensive and alternative healing methods. He could go some way to escaping debt and economic warfare by focusing on basic needs technology and using local currencies. He could weaken the planetary war machine by becoming aware of its tactics and providing technology that diffuses anger, greed and the lust for power. He could overcome food and water scarcity by localised hydroponics and advanced water tech. He can bypass a corrupt, centralised media with viral distribution and the exploding alternative media. He can bypass all mind-control structures by focusing on practical solutions instead of abstract systems. He can approach the population question by realising that increased quality of life means lower population growth, not the other way around. He can overcome hopelessness and confusion by understanding how false these structures are. Right now, a system collapse would cause thirst, hunger, starvation. With a grassroots global shift towards local governance, with many powerful nodes interfacing instead of taking orders in a top down system, Armageddon can be substantially buffered.

Opponents will dismiss these ideas with vague language and strawman arguments. Fine, let them. All the more time for us to get our businesses up and running. The frustration we quietly focus on each other daily comes mainly from our misconception that other people are blocking our path to freedom. In the paradigm delineated by this film each person becomes a potential ally and communicator whose exponential power lines could eventually reach millions. If a critical mass of people make the right choice, a new time can come for humanity. If enough people slough off tiredness and defeatism for the fakes they are and work towards sanity nanometre by nanometer, an avalanche of understanding will burst out and light up humanities psyche. And just as many droplets gather and form into clouds, brooks, streams, rivers, boiling oceans, so the united effort of many individuals will merge and flow into a mighty victory as man's awareness crashes through barriers into the great awakening.

After browsing the entire work I have no objections in an overall sense, nope. This is one of the most visionary works Ive ever seen at this site. The only thing I might add is that all these things, the good and the not-so-good, begin in consciousness/mentality. But adding that to your write-up might make it appear "impractical" for potential investors/supporters.

I agree, I might tentatively stray into that territory towards the end. Of course I am into that stuff, but the task I set myself was to stay rigorously grounded and focus on the mechanics and logistics of the inevitable paradigm shift.

How can "love one another." be expressed in nuts, capacitors and bolts?


But adding that to your write-up might make it appear "impractical" for potential investors/supporters.


I will definitely sprinkle this stuff in. I will also add a bit on service to others. Humanity is ready for this. The aim is to aid a convergence of spiritual and material.

A part that I very much agree with is doing away with the false assumption that one mans riches = another mans poorness. Thats an important lesson.

I will have to review my opinions on overpopulation after reading your thread though.

I agree wholeheartedly with a more compassionate aim to government. Unfortunately I believe that it is greed, and all of humanities thirst for power and wealth that prevents these things from becoming reality. I do believe we are at a breaking point in society. When non essential items become less and less in demand, and people change their focus from getting ahead to helping their neighbors and communities get ahead, then reach out to other communities, we may see change.

We can print money and give it to corporations to spend for themselves. Or we can print some money to revolutionize farming so that prices drop so drastically food is available for the world. Problem is money in the hands of greedy people doesn't go as far as it should, and the impact of such monies falls short on the goal intended. I would volunteer my time and energy in a nano second to a cause that wasn't based on greed but rather based on benefiting the community I am a part of. The options are limited as too much is required for some small organization to revolutionize their community. Since it would mean lost jobs and income potential for investors in the long run.

Capitalism has fundamental flaws, when coupled with a monetary system that robs that wealth from hard working people. Couple this with bogus programs designed by government, and we are heading nowhere quickly.
