We used to have a system that has been long abandoned that provided free housing, free healthcare, free food, free water, free clothing, and
guaranteed work. The amazing part is that it did not rely upon any currency or monetary system which means if we were to re-implement it we could do
away with the deficit and debt overnight.
I have heard the slow drum and rhythmic repetition from my compatriots. Americans seem to all agree that all of the above need, nigh, must, be
provided by the government in order for us to once again become a civilized society. Therefore, I have scoured history in an attempt to find such a
system that will not collapse in upon itself due to accumulating debt or inflation. I believe I have found just such a system!
This system was tried again and again throughout history. The main antagonists of the system were those that sought to increase the size of their
wealth generating enterprises by introducing monetary systems which they alone could control and take advantage of. The decline started in earnest
after the Renaissance.
The system can be traced back to Ancient Persia, Mesopotamia, Egypt, and even China. A more recent example though can be traced back to northern
France in the eighth century. A more well established individual would take responsibility for many weaker and less established individuals.
Providing them with education and training, housing, access to healthcare, food, water, clothing, and guaranteeing them work. The people were divided
up based upon their efforts and responsibility.
4th Degree Citizen - Those lost souls that could not care for themselves would enter the system at this point and would be given protection as well as
clothing, food, water, access to healthcare, and housing.
3rd Degree Citizen - Those that proved themselves as responsible care takers of what they were given would then be elevated from the 4th Degree and
given better assets as a reward for their growth as individuals.
2nd Degree Citizen - Those that were in a transitional stage to becoming 1st Degree. This would be a sort of proving ground to ensure that they had
the capacity to help themselves and also to help others. They would be given more responsibility and assets to accomplish the assignment.
1st Degree Citizen - Those granted the harsh responsibility of attending to the needs of others but still under management tutelage themselves. They
would be given the most assets and responsibility.
I changed the actual names because we have been taught by those that seek to control us, ever since the Renaissance, that this is a perverted system.
Instead, we have been told that that we have no rights to any of the above, that we have to work every day for wages that barely sustain us as well
as pay taxes to them or we will be imprisoned or starved -- all to ensure that the super-wealthy can benefit off the labor of all of society and in
doing so grow to heights of wealth unseen in history.
You might be thinking - yes but in a society without monetary assets how is a person punished for committing a crime like growing unsightly
vegetables? First, lets keep in mind what happens in society today - lets take a simple vegetable farmer that plants their vegetables in the sight
of their neighbors. That person is cited and fined, and then if the fine is not paid, arrested, charged, and entered in to the criminal system. A
record is placed on that person for all future employers to consider stating that the person has been convicted of a crime and is a criminal. An
employer having many potential candidates then pushes that person aside and selects someone that has better conformed to what is 'suitable' in
society. The criminal then remains unemployed and can no longer pay for their basic services - like food, water, housing, and clothing. They
continue this short spiral downward. The tax collectors (which we call police officers) start to recognize this dreg of society as and so find more
and more reasons to enter them back in to the prison system (where they can be cared for because we all know people live longer in prison than on the
So, if a person cannot stand on their own two feet today, the government finds a way of arresting and punishing them. All of their rights are
forfeited and the government provides no means of restoring the person's confidence in themselves or society. As a person falls down the ladder of
success in current society there are no rungs to climb back on - they just fall deeper and deeper in to poverty and are increasingly harassed by the
In this rediscovered system the worth of the individual is immediately recognized and they are given all of the tools needed to restore themselves
without tax-collecting punitive measures. Now, of course, as this system is primarily free of the limits of monetary control we cannot punish the
person economically as we do today (thereby ensuring their continued decline). Instead we would have to lash or otherwise reprimanded them to correct
their reckless and anti-social behavior.
This system is of course - Feudal Serfdom with its peasants lumped in to Freemen (1st Degree), Villeins (2nd Degree), Cottagers (3rd Degree), and
Slaves (4th Degree) and the well-established were called Masters.
Therefore, I ask - did the slave owners have it right all along? Is the end goal of this government we are constructing to labor-slave all of us to
the super-wealthy? We won't have to worry about our mortgages as that one woman shrieked in 2007 at the sight of Obama. We won't have to worry about
anything. It'll all be given to us.
I just ask you to consider that when your government gives you everything how will they punish you? If currency is destroyed then how will you pay
for your transgressions against the system? What is the difference between millions of black men in prison in 2011 and millions of black men working
on farms in the south in 1811? What is the difference between the Sheriffs that enforced this slavery and those that do so today? The idea of the
police Protecting and Serving was short lived and is now long dead - what we see today are nothing more than the tax-collectors of the 700's.
Before you reply - I'm not seriously proposing that we revert to the above system. I aim only to point out that we are being pushed in to it now by
our leaders regardless of their party affiliation. Have you noticed all of them are multi-millionaires working for multi-billionaires? How many of
us will be in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th Degree is the only question that remains. The only commonality is none of them are truly free.
