There are millions of us globally now who are thoroughly fed up with corrupt bankers, corrupt politicians, and lack of stewardship by our governments and public administrations. We are witnessing horrific acts of violence, absolutely insane acts of murder, and our leaders only offer condolences and useless promises to deal with the issues.
We want change but somehow we feel ineffective to actually make change happen. Our political systems are so corrupt that it seems impossible to get people that would be honest elected, anywhere in the world. Instead we can only choose from cronies put up by the very people and institutions that are perpetrating the violence, crime, and drug trades that are at the root of our current situation. On top of that, the majority of us are slowly being forced into poverty as the top ¼ of 1% are getting vulgarly wealthy. What to do?
The fact is that not all in power, either in the governments or media are willing participants in the madness, but they do lack the moral courage to speak truth to power. It is time we shake their conscience and call them to task for their weakness.
Phillip J. Watt, who lives on the Mid North Coast of NSW Australia has drafted a letter that we all could use to challenge those who can make a difference to act. His written and film work deals with topics from ideology to society, as well as self-development. You can visit his website here.
“Dear (insert name of politician, journalist, community representative or celebrity),
I am writing to raise information with you that is important for everybody to know. It doesn’t appear that you’re aware of it because if you were, I would like to assume that you’d share it through your networks to assist achieving the real change that we need.
Before I continue, I note that you appear as a genuine man/woman who really wants the best for your community and human family. However, when you’re focusing on the wrong problems, how can you expect to find the right solutions? There’s no need to be ashamed either; the public at large have been led astray from the real questions, and therefore the real answers, which is obviously one of the problems that will be identified below.
The many issues I’m referring to can generally be captured in a few primary areas. If we deal with these challenges, then the rest of the peripheral ones will be much easier to tackle.
1) The first problem area is the corrupted money supply.
It is a complex system (or at least purposely designed to be perceived that way), but simply described it is a debt-based model where so-called governments of the world, and therefore its people, loan money from a transnational banking monopoly and then pay it back with interest.
This is in contrast to sovereign nations which used to, and still can if they choose to, issue their own currency to create an honest and productive supply of money for its people. In layman’s terms, governments don’t need to borrow money, they can make it themselves (just like the private banks do) in an economically sound way, so that it directly benefits the people. This includes ensuring the hidden tax of inflation does not occur.
2) The second problem area is private banking.
This mechanism should be publicly owned for the public good, but it’s not. Money is created out of nothing by private banking institutions, contrary to popular belief that they get it from their vaults or borrow it from another institution. For the privilege of punching numbers into a computer, they make billions of dollars each year from it, further enriching those who are already swimming in money.
Imagine if we went back to public banks being the primary methodology for banking, in which their profits are reinvested into community infrastructure and social programs? We would no doubt finally begin to actually solve the many socioeconomic issues that pervade our societies, such as poverty and homelessness. These issues are continuing to increase all across the so-called developed and undeveloped regions too, so we need to do something radically different, or otherwise there will only be the rich and the poor left.
3) The third problem area is the party model of the political system.
The current political duopoly is a two party tyranny, because both sides have been purchased by big money. Subsequently, democracy doesn’t actually exist because the left/right illusion of choice covertly represents the corporatocracy.
There are so many people who have been disenfranchised by this failed system because their voices are not represented by those who are meant to be their employees, so they believe that government should not exist at all. They might be right, they might not, but in the meantime we need to apply a mechanism to ensure that big business (including the interconnected and private banking institutions), are not having their needs met over and above everything else.
It should be a well known fact that the next step is to institute electoral reform to dissolve the party system, so that independent candidates represent the true needs of their electorate and don’t have to toe a toxic party line. Reform is also necessary to remove money from the political spectrum so that the way we design our system puts the interests of the people and the environment first, not the corporations and the oligarchy behind the curtain.
4) The fourth problem area is the complicated and unfair tax system.
Ultimately it would be great if we could get rid of taxes entirely, but that’s not viable in the short term. First, we need to have a simple and fair tax system, such as a transaction tax where all individuals and businesses alike are taxed at a flat rate every time a transaction is made.
This is an easy way to make big business pay their fair share so the average person isn’t paying up to and over 50% of their wages in tax once you calculate all of them in, not just income tax. And the great thing is, with the electronic infrastructure we have in this day and age, it could be implemented near overnight.
5) The fifth problem area is an indoctrination process we call the education system.
It’s nice to think that there are many great teachers doing the best they can, which there are, but they’re working against a model that does not equip children with what they need to be healthy, as well as active members of their community. It misses many life skills, such as proper emotional regulation and basic living skills, and essentially teaches them ‘what to think, not how to think’.
Some people say this is the parents job, but what happens if the parents never learned? I’ll tell you what happens; exactly what we see today. The failed education system has resulted in explosions of dis-empowered, confused and unhealthy young adults entering the world almost totally unprepared for what awaits them, causing the further entrenchment of toxic behaviors in our communities.
We therefore need educational reform immediately, so that instead of having good little robotic workers and expert minions who are not wise enough to question the status quo, our new generations will be truly ready to not just look after themselves properly, but contribute to evolving our social systems too.
6) The sixth problem area is the pharmaceutical monopolies.
Seriously, does anyone really think that the pharmaceutical-medico complex truly wants to create cures, not customers? How can we not collectively see that they’re using the exact same tactics as the tobacco industry once did? Simply, our medicines are full of toxins, a huge proportion of which at the very least only treat the symptom, in the middle don’t work at all, and at worst disable and kill people.
To achieve the control they have over our collective health, they use money to buy so-called scientific and medical support. Sound familiar? Of course it does; it’s just like the tobacco industry was caught out doing. They have also unscientifically demonized natural cures, treatments and therapies. Ironically, most of their so-called medicines are actually plant or bacteria based, yet they perverted them into a toxin that they can legally patent. Surely you see a problem with that, right? Let’s hope so.
The fact that their narratives have been adopted as the orthodox views is nothing short of insane. In this light, we need to wipe the slate clean and start again; our medicines have been corrupted by money and until we table this for public discussion, many more people are going to suffer, and potentially even die.
7) The seventh problem area is the toxins in our food and water.
It’s no wonder that society is so overweight and unhealthy when we are bombarded with chemically-rich products that barely pass as containing nutritious ingredients. In addition, the industrial agriculture model of generally spraying only three petrochemical ingredients on our crops has also made our fruits and vegetables toxin-dense and lacking the dozens of minerals that we actually need for maintaining our health.
Furthermore, whoever thinks that it’s a good thing to add the neuro-toxin, Fluoride, to our water supply has once again been deceived by the monolithic industrial powers. This byproduct of the manufacturing industry numbs our brains, just like most pharmaceuticals do. Both our food and water, therefore, need to be cleansed of their toxins to benefit the minds and the bodies of the people.
8) The eighth problem area is the corporate media obstructing truth from the public.
The media monopolies protect corporate interests because they’re owned by them. The simplest example I can use is the fact that only those who have done their independent research are aware of the issues presented here. In reality, this entire conversation should be a topic on everyone’s minds, being discussed in every lounge room and tabled in the media and in politics for immediate action.
The media is simply a propaganda tool to sedate the masses from the truth, as well as fulfill the agenda of big money. Until we start discussing this on a widespread scale, nothing will change, so when are we going to accept that the corporate media has failed us and that we need to take serious action?
Your time reading this letter is much appreciated. It’s no doubt challenging for anyone to hear this information when they believe the world works much differently, but it’s always better to align with the truth no matter how hard it is to face our delusions.
One day the people and their so-called representatives will come together to sort this mess out. With so many grass roots movements each focusing on one or two of the issues above, we’re only making slow progress. But if we compile them all together and open them for public debate, we might actually start getting somewhere fast.
So, why you have personally chosen not to focus on the real problems in our system? Is it because of ignorance, or greed? Do you have honor, or not? These questions are for your perusal; I’ll leave them up to you to contemplate.
In any case, I hope this letter has inspired you to make some changes to the way you respect your position of power. Peace to you and your family on this adventure of magic and madness we call life.
(Sign your name).
We just felt it may be useful to submit this for your consideration and hopefully your action. You can modify the letter to your belief or simply fill in the blanks and fire off a few of these and encourage friends and family to do likewise. At least it is an action you can easily take. Hey, it may be like Grandma’s chicken soup. It may not help, but it certainly won’t hurt anything either. We know you can think of at least five individuals you would like to send something similar to this letter, right?
