    • Money Is Not Needed Anymore

      If all the money in the world were destroyed, as long as we have sufficient arable land, the factories, the necessary resources, and technical personnel, we could build anything and even supply an abundance. Money and the monetary system is an outdated, extremely flawed, and obsolete system. It is not needed with our current technology.

      During the Depression, there were vacuum cleaners in store windows and automobiles in car lots. The Earth was still the same place. There was just no money in people's wallets and very little purchasing power. At the beginning of World War II, the U.S. had about 600 first-class fighting aircraft. We rapidly overcame this short-supply by turning out over 90,000 planes per year. The question at the start of World War II was: Do we have enough funds to produce the required implements of war? The answer was No, we did not have enough money or gold, but we did have more than enough resources. It was the available resources and technical personnel that enabled the U.S. to achieve the production and efficiency required to win the war.

      It appears that the real wealth of any nation is in its natural resources and its people who are working toward a more humane life-style through the elimination of scarcity. All social systems, regardless of the political philosophy, religious beliefs, or social mores, ultimately depend upon natural resources (i.e. clean air and water and arable land area) and the industrial equipment and technical personnel for a high standard of living. The money- based system was designed hundreds of years ago and was hardly appropriate for that time. We still utilize this same outmoded system, which is probably responsible for most of today's problems.

      The problem is scarcity, and that is exactly what the monetary system thrives on. Without scarcity, nothing would have value and no one would make a profit. We have the technology and renewable resources to provide clean energy, food, clean water, high quality homes, schools, and hospitals to every human being in the world. We don't do so simply because it is not profitable. And that's the problem.

      Capitalism, communism, socialism, it doesn't matter. They all operate under the monetary system, thus creating all of societies problems such as world hunger, poverty, and preventable human suffering. The money system is a primitive and obsolete system that may have worked 50 years ago, but not today with our advances in technology.

      The bottom line is, the elimination of all centralized currencies is what is needed to begin the transition out of this backward and broken system. If you have any questions as to anything I just said or have any comments, I will try to answer as many as I can while I'm online.

      I watched the "Bucket List" last night and it was pretty good. It kinda got me thinking of all the stuff I wanna do before I die such as:

      1. Meet Chuck Norris
      2. Pet a Tiger
      3. Stick my head in a crocadile's mouth.
      4. Walk around in a public place naked.
      5. Be shot out of a cannon like in the cartoons.

      What's yours?

      Well, I always wanted to be an actor. I absolutely LOVE movies (who doesn't?) and I always wanted to be in a featured film. I also always wanted to be a comedian... So how about you? What did you want to be when you grow up?

      I remember hearing something on a "HBO Behind the Scenes" covering "28 Weeks Later" and the writer said they might be making a "28 Months Later" or possibly a "28 Years Later". What are you guys thoughts on it? Do you think it would be good? Bad? What do you think would be a good plot? Discuss here.
