I have long realized that the control over our world was made possible by: the limits in our electorial systems, and how we voted for their
representatives, and that politics really was not the best way to get the changes we need. Its not that its not important, it is, very important.
And its not that we shouldn't address our leaders, write in and phone, attend demonstrations and find ways to make our wishes known and that there
will be severe consequences by ignoring them. We should, must and can do this.
However, the system is rigged and at this point we can't count on the population to be awake enough to not cast their expected votes for these
So the real way we have of creating a new system, that would eventually springboard into the political as we gained confidence in self, and in each
other as well, for we would see we're solving problems and that we're capable of doing this, and this would grow, our abilities to cooperate and
meet with everyone's expectations, broaden our viewpoints, budge us from our spoon fed ideas and credos by being exposed to each others
circumstances, concerns, needs, experiences, in short we would grow up a lot.
We need to find ways to connect and get out of our boxes. We're always divided and conquered, and our opinions can be very heartless because of
this, for we don't understand how the policies are affecting others, and that they count very much and don't have the resources or support system to
be safe in a dog eat dog environment.
Meeting with others fosters both self reliance and resposniblity, and compassion, social obligations and more cooperation. Both elements meet in the
middle when we open our hearts and minds to each other.
We're the ones we've been waiting for. The way to change things is in each others hands, literally.
The media is bought off and paid for, most people still only believe what is in hard print or on their televisions. They have been trained, first
within their own homes by their parents authority, then by kindly teachers, ministers, and big brothers/sisters, to respect elders, and authority,
that no one wishes to harm them, they've been taught to look to patriarchal daddy figures, authorities, for the answers, and even to suffer harsh
circumstances for their own good. So the meme is there, the NLP, aside from the carefully constructed NLP in the choice of words, the headlines in
the print and the association they wish us to make, but also in subliminal messages and frequencies. Some of the frequencies, light, flashing and
sounds in movies and music aren't good, they are actually creating portals or potentials for control by negatives. There's a term for it called:
We've always had the solution. There are many out of work people, why not find the ones that are journalistically inclined, and some students of
journalism working with a few disgruntled journalists, to form our own hard print papers, magazines, journals. And many of them in every area. We do
have alternatives. The free one in Penticton went out to everyones door, was delivered door to door, was paid for by advertisements.
Why couldn't we all do this?
Also, imagine it like a huge forum, and have the issues brought up with a big section in the middle, where everyone writes in their opinions and
suggestions and ideas for making a difference and problem solving. Not very many get their opinions in print, the editorials censor everyone
strongly. There are many locally who would like a say. It think developing ways to do this would be excellent.
Also, the funds needed. Groups meeting up can learn how to problem solve, raise money, fund raisers.
There are many solutions. For example, what are the essential foods, goods and services we buy from the corporate pyramid system?
Why not make a list of essential goods, services and foods and pass the hat around and set up small businesses in every area, with those in need of
work who demonstrate responsible intelligent service behavior and buy and sell from each other only. Why not export the model everywhere so the soon
to be crashed big corporations have pathways for the soon to be out of work people to also join in and get really prosperous. We put our money where
it shouldn't have gone. Its time to put it where it should of gone, into our dreams.
There would be no crash possible if the economy was grass roots. Only prosperity.
How do people prove they're responsible? By excluding no one. Encourage those with incomes and education, woodworkers, engineers, medically trained
individuals, teachers, in short the more successful people, and everyone else. Learn to see past income, status, race, skin color, and look into
ideas, and allow everyone the same input and sharing their insights.
Create groups that: build generators, windmills, solar, and energy devices, and ham radios, telescopes for skywatching, health and nutrition,
heritage and good seeds, survival lessons. Have those with knowledge train the young, the teenagers, the poor, children from single mothers who
can't show this to their children often, and see what they can be capable of teaching as well. In other words, train up the lay people, and share
the skills and tools. Support each other and you'll get to know which people have which talents and can do well in a variety of businesses. Several
families could share a business and really spread the wealth around. Some can be co-ops with all members contributing, giving and taking.
There are many solutions.
We need to break down the walls that divide us, and make it really easy to get people to meet up, and accept everyone, the outgoing ones, the shy
cranky ones, the rich, the poor, everyone equally, and begin to create a new world, grass roots.
