Do we have Abundance or Scarcity?Submitted by jshowell on Fri, 10/10/2008 - 18:10
There have been alot of hotly debated topics about whether the Zeitgeist plan will work or not. The entire plan comes down to one fundamental question to me and that is do we have abundance or scarcity? My view is the world is abundant in all of the resources its people need. I see the scarcity in food and wealth as the artificially driven fascist workings of the New World Order.
Our abundance doesn't stop with just the necessities. We also have wonderful machines that, while they do need maintenance, can produce our automobiles, our houses and our clothes. These technologies today are in their infancy mostly because the New World Order understands its to their benefit to have human slaves taxed for their labor and their descendants can be taxed to feed into their monetary system.
The abundance isn't just in technology it's also in the infinite power derived from the sun, wind, waves and geothermal in our earth today.
Zeitgeist never told anyone they had to do anything. It offers a solution to humanity's oldest problem-how do we get away from money? The solution is for people to start self sufficient communities. As seen in this post: http://www.dailypaul.com/node/68239
It can be done one house at a time. Alot of other people have homesteaded on their own, but they're spread out across the nation perhaps with no contact from other like minded individuals. If they were to form a network of people who just traded amongst themselves then they could effectively "secede" from the (now) totally economic government.
Don't misunderstand me this "network" wouldn't be governed just a trade federation that trades whatever they need amongst each other. Kind of like ebay only without money. That's what I got from Zeitgeist, and that's the transition period I see as our possible future.
So I pass this question to you, do we have abundance or scarcity?
