The Occupy trend is the new consumer model that capitalists throw at ‘activists’ like bait to fish. Besides some capitalists make money out of it all, there is no change happening – at all.
Fascinating how trends become big – first Anonymous, now Occupy – and how capitalists sell the idea to the masses that somehow through such chaotic actions justice and freedom can be achieved. Do you buy it?
What is also fascinating is the word OCCUPY.
(There is a whole evolution of cult words, ‘cool’ words, which – if we dare see things for what they are – merely reflect the state of the world and the human psyche. For instance: “This is sick!” meaning awesome, or: “You totally own this dude!”…)
When we occupy something, it is no longer free for others. So the OCCUPY trend is basically still following the current accepted system that claims and makes believe that not all can have it all and that if some have others cannot have.
OCCUPY is also a form of possession, ownership, occupation. Can we occupy without being occupied? Can we possess without being possessed?
Occupation is the job or profession we exercise, yet in the end: do we ‘have a job’, or does the job own us, possess us, occupy all our time while we are pre-occupied with survival, with getting ‘bigger’ , making ‘more’ , being ‘better’ , ‘WINNING’ .
The current money-system, the accepted world-system in its entirety is based on an artificially imposed idea of ‘scarcity’. Within this, the only equation possible is that there has to be Winners and Losers in the world for the world to function – for the money-system to function. What does OCCUPY every one’s mind, in fact, is Money. Money – the manifestation of ‘power’ and ‘freedom’ in this world.
Isn’t it weird that we do not fathom coming up with a solution for our world that is NOT within the bounds of the accepted fallacy of a system; a solution that is NOT in the context of the capitalist fraud; a solution that will turn the tables once and FOR ALL in a way that ALL is served equally. This solution is an equality system where life is the value and thus all have equal value, equal money, equal opportunity in life IN FACT. Investigate the equal money system, a system with no strings attached, a system where each voice is one vote, a system without debt, without scarcity, without abuse.
The Occupation of Wealth
A memory just popped up from when I was a kid and would visit my grandparents in Russia. We would sometimes take the train and go to Moscow. Moscow has a fascinating metro system, which is decorated with incredible wealth.
Seeing this picture, I immediately saw a picture of a tsar (that is the Russian equivalent of a king) and followed the story of how the tsar would go about collecting wealth (gold, silver, precious metals and stones) and how that wealth is then utilized within the tsar’s nation/kingdom/country to give a ‘personal note’ to public places.
The question that arises from this story is: who owns the wealth? History shows us how kings and rulers would literally OCCUPY their land with ‘their highness’. All the while the riches come from the earth. Does anyone ever really own anything?!
Then we, the people, tend to form a huge rage and disdain against/towards rulers of all kinds. But do we ever ask ourselves: if I was born a king, a queen, would I be a better ruler? Would I be a better leader? Would I be free of greed, free of fear, free of conspiracies, free of hierarchies?
And since we all see and realize that greed, fear, separation, exploitation are ‘evil things’ that do no good to anyone – the question would be: How do we practically go about to create a world, a system, that will support mankind in its process of transforming the accepted ‘human nature’ into a nature of ‘living beings’ that actually supports life, that actually supports ourselves and each-other.
Granted, it will be difficult for most to let go of that which defines them, that which binds them. Stop all fear, stop mind control, stop the separation created through beliefs – and self-realize life!
Currently, whether we still have kings and queens or not, bloodlines control the wealth of the earth. And sometimes there is revolution, and sometimes the poor rise to the elite and further elitism is born, and some others lose everything and become the poor and disenfranchised. Still it is the same polarity system, still we have history repeating without giving a shit about who is who and who gets where. What matters for the system is that “the world go round”. What are we doing?!
We are mostly made of water. Water is ‘more than’ blood’. We all share equal water. How come than money as the blood of the system is allowed to have control over life and death? How come we, human beings, allow for blood ties to be stronger than water/life ties? What ever happened to our equality as life? We all breathe the same air – the water of the earth knows no boundaries. Pollution is everywhere. What have we done?!
Let’s OCCUPY the space we breathe – Let’s get ourselves HERE and realize our responsibility is Here, for All that is Here.
The global era of mankind allows for no more excuses as space and time come closer together and practically every citizen of the earth is your neighbour.
We may not know where we come from – but we sure as hell are HERE. Let’s make the best out of it – for ALL LIFE.
