Reimagine a new world, what would it be like to live in? Why would one want this reimagined world? What would it offer that we don’t have today?
Let’s glance at what we do have today to fully understand why we imagine something else.
We have a consumerism society – a society that is based totally on people who are brought up, educated and judged by how well they accumulate the acquisition of goods and services in ever-increasing amounts; bigger houses, more expensive cars, fashionable clothes. The individual ego controls our behaviour as a consumer, more is better, and people don’t matter in the process of gaining more wealth. We even put ourselves in debt to obtain more and more.
Technology has replaced the creativity of humans. They are now merely a cog in the job market, seeking a salary to spend on gaining more wealth to spend selfishly on themselves and their immediate family.
“More is better” strengthens the ego which can never be satisfied.
The 20th century has brought capitalism, communism, democracy, and even within these philosophies, there is a tyrannical dictatorship in some parts of the world. In fact, capitalism and communism are power-hungry systems that force people to become consumers surviving from hand to mouth with a few thriving and even fewer becoming more powerful than anyone can imagine.
A consumerism society is spiritually and morally bankrupt. The major religions that came into being more than 2,000 years ago served their purpose well, to teach the importance of morality and about eternal life. But as recently as a few hundred years ago, greedy financiers started to take over from the moral society.
What is a consumerism society?
Consumerism, according to Wikipedia, is a social and economic order that encourages the acquisition of goods and services in ever-increasing amounts.
Consumerism is the idea that increasing consumption of goods and services purchased in the market is always a desirable goal and that a person’s wellbeing, ego, and happiness depends fundamentally on obtaining consumer goods and material possessions. Our consumerism society goal is spending – encouraging consumers to consume is the primary policy goal. From this point of view, consumerism is seen and believed to be a positive phenomenon that fuels economic growth, ignoring inflation while most of the world’s population are barely surviving.
It is what globally happened many years ago when a group of financiers dreamed of world control. It was a start to spirituality, morality being destroyed in the world, and the consumer society started to be built artificially. World enterprises, multinational corporations, private monopolies, the world market, focused on the formation and consolidation of consumer society. The world community popularised a man-consumer, with consciousness which was adjusted to a materialistic, egoistical perception of the world, consumer attitude to life, obtaining a personal benefit. And the meaning of life was reduced to a desire for a continuous increase of a level of income and welfare, career growth, upholding of egoistical ambitions which as a result did not give the required inner freedom and happiness to a person. Of course, after such mass processing of consciousness, selfish thinking of man-consumer no longer perceived seriously the knowledge of the past, including that was considered sacred and passed down from generation to generation throughout the millennia as knowledge important for humanity. Absolute emptiness has to be filled with anything material. It is difficult for people to go beyond this material worldview, which also blocks in his consciousness the ability to allow him to learn more, to benefit mankind and become the next Tesla, Planck or Maxwell.
This uncontrollable, economic philosophy gives power and control to those who strive and succeed in becoming insanely rich. This material success leads to indecent behaviour which again negatively impacts the majority of hard-working large company employees. The concept keeps the world in debt as they strive for more and more, bigger and better.
Greed is the disastrous outcome of this capitalistic, consumerist society which is negatively felt in every sector of mankind. Western pharmaceutical companies are one of many examples where the symptoms of the sick are treated to make them sicker in the long term. Our society is fed food that is given no thought to the health of the plant or animal, only the profits gained.
The answer is not communism which degrades humans into slave machines. No other government is simultaneously detaining a million members of an ethnic minority for forced indoctrination and attacking anyone in the world who dares to challenge its repression.
In this madness which encourages spending and material acquisitions, where there is no idea of enough is sufficient, and let’s share the excess.
We are living in a spiritually bankrupt culture where we are primarily driven by more money and not by “people matter” first. Most of us do charity work which is sadly needed everywhere, and I guess it also satisfies our conscience.
The solution to our consumerism economics lies with individual business owners, who want to care about people. They know that “people matter”. They also know that our existing debt-ridden society is no longer sustainable.
Once individual businesses embrace “enough is beautiful”, these businesses will lead the way to discover the knowledge and developing the technology to share freely with mankind. This will take everyone to a new level of joy, happiness, and deep-seated fulfilment. Nature and humans will regain their inherent spiritual sovereignty.
This will free people from material dependence and any consumer system. These pioneers of our age will bring humanity to an absolutely new side of attitude, worldview, scientific studying and practical research of space and man.
We will all share an inexhaustible source of free energy.
Let’s reimagine the concept: “Enough is beautiful, and people matter”.
