If someone else has answered this then I apologize, but all I see so far is a debate over question #1.
So I'm gonna skip #1 and go straight to question #2



if the worlds total land was shared equally , how much land would each person have ?

57,491,000 square miles: 36,794,240,000 acres.
World population clock, as of right now says there is.6,871,558,500 people on this planet.
math.berkeley.edu...
Amount of acres divided by the amount of people = 5.355 acres/person

If i'm wrong with the math, then i accept the beatings.

Simple.
Hey that's not too bad because the average yearly salary worldwide is about 7000. Sounds like a pay increase for a lot of people. Pretty pathetic isn't it.


But this wouldn't happen annually. It would have to be a one time thing. So instead of earning $7000 every year you get $10,571 once. If you try to redistribute the wealth every year after that you would essentially be giving up any additional income made buy those who have worked hard to those who didn't. (assuming all salaries were also leveled). In year 2 you are either a burden on society or you start earning your money again. Now, because money has pretty much lost all it's value at this point your earned $7000 won't get you very far.

1) How is the system "fair" if the ones who produce have no choice but to give what they produce to the ones who only consume?

2) Wouldn't severe population control be needed to ensure no one would go hungry?

How life is now is not fair the wealth divide is too big and increasing .
I understand your point
but you realise WE are making the rich richer we are their worker ants , without US everything collapses .
I beleive we should stop doing their bidding , how are we helping by simply propping these rich asses up

we are slaves but because you get a wage from tptb its all above board . not in my eyes !

Who decides who gets to live in the antarctic or on the French Riviera? I want 5.355 acres to be ocean front on the Canadian west coast please. Preferably in a lower risk earthquake zone. lol

Yeah, I thought about that part, but that wasn't what he was asking. Would be hard to grow a garden if your 5 acres were on the side of a rock cliff also. I am sure it would be done with a fair lottery drawing for everyone

i brought this up to someone who had lots of money, and they said a study was already done, and the conclusion was the world would be exactly the same within 1 year. People dont know how to use money.

You made a good point here , im willing to bet that right now the people who live near potential volcano , earthquake zones etc are Poor and have NO choice , and to me that shows you the world is #ed and that Haarp may be real

Capitalism guarantees that there will never be a fair division of wealth,if you really look,it becomes obvious what is destroying the world.

Capitalism and Communism are opposite extremes.

The extremists are the ones telling you one or the other extreme doesn't work,so you stay in their end of the spectrum,do business their way,and get raped and abused for no real return at all.

I really wonder when this species is going to grow a brain and realize how manipulated they are for the benefit of the few who use them like livestock.

We are really just a bunch of arrogant animals that believe we are something more than we are.

The world has to arrive at "oneness" and realize that I am YOU...... you are ME... WE are ONE... and then money will not have any "value" for rich or poor.....Materialism and "things" will not matter. LOVE WILL MATTER. The more evolved souls do understand this concept.........Eventually, you will understand this too.. all of us are just on a journey. Some of us take longer than others.....Technoligy will take over mundane jobs... and create more time for pleasure... and ............ "we one" souls will enjoy the "new world" that is created.

But in THIS existance... $$$$ MONEY will never be shared fairly. Children will die from disease, people will starve, wars will kill, ........the greedy will become greedier... while some of us souls will distance ourselves from it all......We will go on.... to our "world" and some of YOU will stay here, until your journey is complete.

From one who knows...........Love and be loved!

Who did the study , it makes all the difference !
Your right people DONT know about money
and thats why i made this thread .

TPTB want you to be in debt ! credit cards are like tatoos every #er has em , they encourage you to pay for a REAL product with money that doesnt never has and never will EXSIST !

YOUR GRANDPARENTS that dont have a bank account and ONLY pay by cash know what the # is up !

No one has really brought this up but I think a community without a monetary system has been done before. And the land was equally owned. The elite did everything in their power to stop this moneyless system that had no debtors, no prisons, and equal resource division(among a community). North American Natives Or Indians.

People in power literally wiped out this way of life because they thought their's was a better way. I beg to differ. Having to keep a percentage of your population in prison because they have a debt to pay is pure savage. I don't contend to know a solution to money, land, freedom, but surely whats next cannot be worse than what we have here already. Or can it?

My thoughts exactly, problem is someone still gets stuck with the south pole marker on there front lawn.
Problem to is that some will harvest the results of their labour to feed themselves, while others will go hungry and demand the handouts they are accustomed to.

PS. The rocky cliff doesn't bother me as long as I have a decent fishing rod and a boat.

This year ? why not? theres more of us than there are them .
people always say "oh theres no point theres not enough aware people .
I say to you .. theres no need for 90 % of the population to be aware .
a million people in America id say are awake .
thats all you need 1 million , if you have non violent aims that benefit the majority , then MORE will join you .


90 % of Americans will agree life is not perfect they will be the ones who join you ..





make it happen

He who leads by example walks alone.

I have been a figure in the dark for so long that I now prefer to just be alone.

....Someone earlier stated that there have been communities where there was no money involved,where people traded real goods with each other....
That's called Socialism,and it does work,that's why the PTB have all of you believing it's bad.
Take a look around you,surrounded by your 30 year mortgage (My Own Prison),Your credit card debt (Debt Slavery),Your car payment and rental expenses........

All of these things you consider to be yours require something to use them,Electricity,Registration,Insurance,Licenses,Fuel....

Who has control of those things that permit you to use your accumulated junk?.

One cannot do anything without paying some schmoe who produces nothing of substance first.

Yeah Hey!,That's Freedom,Uh Huh!.

People with money generally think that people without it don't have it for a reason(lack of education, lazy etc.) If the ones who have a lot of money learned how to use it for the benefit of others instead of hoarding it and building their own "kingdoms" maybe then the world could be a little different. I'm not saying this is the case with your wealthy friend, but most of the truly miserable, hateful and ignorant people of this world have money and lots of it, and conversely the ones who have little(in the worlds eyes) are usually the nicest most giving people I've met personally.
