I just finished talking to a Swedish economist/sociologist and his message was that change is nearly impossible today due to a public apathy for learning and for critical thinking. His view is that most voters refuse to think critically about our problems and the needed changes as they are satisfied with the status quo. He also thinks that those in power positions (with money) do not desire any change which would rock their boat. Is this thinker reflecting reality?

I tend to agree with this Swedish thinker. I witness a similar situation here in the USA. Most people turn off any ideas which seem logical but which are radical…in that implementation would require change in their status quo. Change is absolutely needed in our world of economics and politics today, yet few seem interested in thinking about real alternatives. Today we live in a world of abundance (for most) and scarcity is a diminishing reality. Money was invented because of this concept called ‘scarcity’.

Our new technologies are now allowing us to produce more food, clothing, shelter, and transportation for the entire world society and this situation could grow exponentially if money were eliminated from our planet. Money is technically not needed in a world of abundance. We could eliminate this idea (money) from our planet if we would think creatively and realistically. The original purpose for money was to deal with a scarce set of resources. Production was done via intense labor as robots and computers were not available.

Today, our manufacturing and production is mostly automatic…with robots, 3-D printing, digitization, and artificial intelligence replacing all the hard labor of the past. We are now living in a new world where abundance can be achieved for everyone. This means that we need new thinking and a new model for this world of abundance. The old model of money and valuation is no longer needed. Money (and this concept called ‘value’) is now a curse upon society and it favors the few at the expense of the many.

Those in control of our system perpetuate this money economy to favor the few…and those in power. What my Swedish friend understands is that all this is now unnecessary if people would think and adopt a new model for the digital/computer age which we now experience. Eliminating money, banks, investments, and value (over a short time horizon) could be possible in this age of mass communication (our global internet). The young would buy into this new model with a vengeance if they were educated on the issues.

The future is now. Those who desire to help us develop a new model for the future need to read my blog and help to promote this blog. Kingdom Economics is a blog for now and future moments of now. The young need to get educated on issues of economics and philosophy so they can help promote a new model for our planet. Pass this missive on to those in the 15 to 30 age group. This group has a future if they adopt a new model for economics. Money is basically a curse upon humanity today as it favors the 1% and not the many. In fact, this concept called ‘money’ (as administered today) is a fantasy merely for the elite power brokers and select proxies so they can enslave the many.

Unlimited production of basic needs and basic wants is possible given all our new technologies. We could close down all the money institutions (over a couple of years time span) and then decentralize production, distribution, and consumption of all our economic goods. All natural resources could be shared. Each decentralized community could administer their own economic system for their constituencies. Volunteers could act as administrators. Power centers could be eliminated completely. It’s all possible if the young get educated on the issues. Jobs would be plentiful for all!

Pass this missive around to those in the age bracket of 15 – 30. Ask them to think about a new model for our planet. Ask them to challenge the status quo in their immediate political area. Yes, we need to challenge the status quo with these new ideas. Change is always difficult as people must change their thinking. A change in thinking requires humility and persistence. There is no need for violence. Change can be accomplished with mere words and better ideas. Ideas change behavior. Ideas are the key to change!

Isn’t it time to start thinking about a NEW ECONOMIC MODEL for this planet? Isn’t freedom important? Isn’t reality better than fantasy and fakery (our current system)? Today, we live with fake money, fake news, fake power centers, fake leaders, and fake thinking. Let’s start thinking as individuals and then challenge the status quo with concepts of reality. Start reading and thinking on your own. Challenge the status quo thinkers in politics, the media, education, and religion. Think independently and autonomously. Pass this missive on! Enjoy!
