More Universal Basic Income Thoughts

My recent difficult experiences and observations of the terrible plights of far too many people who have been made homeless, impoverished, and/or crushed by debt has made one thing abundantly clear. Imposing and enforcing the primacy of money, debt, the very wealthy, and those who rule through control of money, is wholly unconstitutional on several points. Allowing our nation to be used as the instrument to impose similar on other nation's peoples is likewise grossly immoral. My discussions from the point of view of a US citizen should also be understood as the basis for supporting the international establishment of solutions to end poverty, homelessness, most crime, and war.

Chief among the reasons the current system is unconstitutional is the fact that forcing people into homelessness, abject poverty, and crushing debt in service to current monetary systems is cruel and unusual punishment imposed for the sake of money, debt, and political philosophies that engender the worship of money and greed. It amounts to extra-judicial punishments based solely on the opinions and greed of those who profit from the struggle and suffering of entire populations. The Preamble to the US Constitution makes some very clear points about the purpose for our nation's laws and existence.

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Unfortunately, we have permitted those who control money to rule us using their money and to deceive, manipulate and impose a grossly unjust and callous system based on greed instead of compassion, empathy, and the general welfare. It is slavery by proxy and the penalties for failing to follow the dictates of their greed and the strictures imposed via debt-based money ultimately results in slow and agonizing death and suffering for large numbers of people. It is the justification for the imposition of universal sadism instead of establishing justice, promoting the general welfare, insuring domestic tranquility, and securing the blessings of liberty. This should be blatantly obvious to anyone with an ounce of compassion and empathy.

Greed, aka the love of money, is the root of evil. It is the opposite of life and when elevated above the lives and well being of people and nature, using money as its primary motivation, it is indeed evil. As long as money does not serve the well being of all life, first and foremost, the great problems that bedevil humanity, our natural world, and this civilization as a whole will never cease. Supporting any system that guarantees widespread and persistent suffering is the opposite of good and is an enemy of life.

It is also the opposite of liberty, justice, and domestic tranquility. The structure of the current monetary system and resulting economies is the root cause for most crime and the fear, stress, and despair that are prevalent throughout all levels of our societies. It causes widespread mental disorders and starkly negative effects that are multiplied throughout our civilization. It drives the exploitation and destruction of nature and natural resources on a grand scale. It makes wars and war industry into primary profit centers and thereby perpetuates continuous war as a solution to problems and ultimately serves as their root cause. The profit motive then blocks solving them through peace and compassion.

The time to change this is now and the solution requires that mindsets about money and the value of life, human and all other types, go through a radical reset. Those trying to forestall liberty and justice for all, and who have little respect for domestic tranquility and the general welfare show their absolute disdain for the underlying and clearly stated purpose of the USA as enumerated in the Preamble to our Constitution and throughout its other provisions and amendments.

General welfare is the same as universal welfare and that requires things like a universal basic income and universal healthcare to be established and protected as more important than the other considerations used to keep people subjugated by those who worship the primacy of greed. Profits and commercial considerations are human constructs and we can now see the great harm being done everywhere. Since money and economies were created by people, we can also change them so they are no longer the sources of so much harm and in fact become tools to heal the wounds caused for so long.

Such a change will never happen soon enough to forestall numerous obvious and looming disasters on the near horizon by following the same old paths and relying on the current paradigms. Politics is wholly unsuited to the tasks at hand without something to get people to agree to cooperate to solve our great problems and soon. That is why some must swallow their pride and assist me so I can go public sooner than later.

Those who fear me because of my books and the other things I have been writing about and then working to prevent my success must cease and desist and think about the general welfare of everyone. Humility and the courage to solve the big problems sooner than later will result from my advent on the national and international stages and then life will become good for all, without excuses and without fail.
