UBUNTU Contributionism - MANIFESTO - A World Without Moneyby Michael Tellinger on Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 4:51am http://www.facebook.com/notes/michael-tellinger/ubuntu-contributionism-manifesto-a-world-without-money/10150337395567319
Please read and THINK for yourself. Stop sitting on the fence and act now. Humanity cannot continue to survive and evolve consciously, with any kind of money system - only the complete removal of money will liberate humanity and restore the natural order of things. BUT - how do we implement it? It is actually a lot easier than most of us realise - but first we have to lose all fear, and doubt, and be prepared to accept a complete paradigm shift in every aspect of our lives and our society.
I urge you to read the manifesto below and realise that you all have the answers to how the new system will work. It took me more than 6 years to figure out most of the basics - but not everything. Just enough to realise that the rest will fall into place once communities have adopted this principle and work together as a unified community for the benefit of all.
In the next few weeks, I will be outlining how the various sectors will function, from farming, housings, energy, law, education, science, arts, communication, development, engineering and more.
But you can begin to figure out all this stuff for yourself - I have done this with hundres of people already - you all have the answers inside you - just ask yourself the questions - how will Farming work... how will education work... etc.
But keep reminding yourself of the following crucial fundamentals that often cause people to get confused and stuck. There is NO MONEY, NO BARTER, NO TRADE, nothing has more value than anything else and everyone's contribution is seen as equally valuable by the community. An UBUNTY style Kgotla OR Council of elders make decisions for the community on a daily basis - on crucial issues for the immediate benefit of the entire community. No invisible town councils and government that ignores its people. I have faith in everyone's deeper conscious ability to find the same answers I have found. I have already seen this on many occasions. So - please read the Manifesto below and share it AND explain it to others. Next I will load the NEW FREEDON CHARTER - it is a interim document as we move through the process, the charter will have to adapt to the needs of the people, by the people - this time for real - by the people. Love and universal light to you all.
A BLUEPRINT FOR A NEW SOCIAL STRUCTURE
UBUNTU – Contribution System
“Let each citizen contribute their natural talents or acquired skills to the greater benefit of all in the community.” Michael Tellinger.
Outline & Manifesto
Every socio-political system we have ever had as the human race has failed us dramatically. South Africa, like the rest of the world, is now sitting on the verge of complete and devastating financial meltdown with catastrophic results for its people. The South African economy and natural recourses have been plundered by reckless and ignorant politicians, with no remorse or any real accountability to its citizens.
There is no possible remedy for the current crisis. Anyone who has done some research into the global financial structures will know that there is no possibility of a happy outcome to the money-driven, consumer-capitalist system that we have all been lured into by our leaders.
South Africa is one of the wealthiest countries of the world. Every person should have everything they wish for. And yet we have more poverty, more homelessness, more hunger, more crime, more disease, more despair, more anarchy and unhappiness than ever before in our history. This situation cannot continue without an eventual bloody revolution.
But this can also be prevented. They say that history has taught us nothing. Well - this is the time when we finally have to learn from history and choose a completely new course.
This potentially catastrophic situation presents us with a shining opportunity to consciously change our course and secure our destiny as the human race and the people of South Africa.
This document presents the very basic foundation of a new social structure to take us into a new era of real freedom, real prosperity and real control of our destiny as the people of South Africa.
To achieve this will require a complete change of thinking and a paradigm shift by the ordinary citizens of the land in our approach to our own destiny. It will require taking back the power from the politicians and the governments they have created, with their complex legal systems, to protect their own interests and the agendas of the large multinational corporations that support them.
The launching of the UBUNTU CONTRIBUTION SYSTEM as a new social structure in South Africa, is the result of six years of research and planning by numerous participants who can no longer tolerate the absolute abuse of the good, honest citizens of South Africa and the raping of our land by a group of political elite who have unlawfully assumed ownership of it all.
It is now blatantly clear that the politicians and large corporations have stolen the country from its people – it’s time to take it back. Africa was once GREAT – let us make her GREAT again.
In many ways the UBUNTU CONTRIBUTION SYSTEM (UCS) is loosely based on the ancient tribal structures of the African people and other native tribes of the world. For thousands of years the native people of the world lived in close tribal communities, in harmony with mother Earth.
Our society has been segregated and separated on so many levels that we hardly understand the word unity any more. UCS will allow people to reconstitute a unified society consisting of smaller harmonious communities.
UCS will restore this harmonious balance between the people and the Earth providing abundance for all, because it is an environment which allows its citizens to all contribute their natural talents and acquired skills to the greater benefit all the people in the community. This applies to all areas of our society; science, technology, agriculture, manufacture, health, education, housing, and all other areas not financially viable under the present economic system.
To begin this journey of transformation, we need to be reminded of our inalienable rights as the citizens of South Africa. It is ironic that these so-called new ideas are almost word for word the principles of the Freedom Charter for which many South Africans have died in past 100 years. Today, this call for rights is no longer applicable to a sector of our population, but a unified call by all its citizens who have been denied freedom and dignity.
Our Inalienable Rights – The Rights of all Citizens
1. The country belongs to its people
2. The land belongs to its people
3. The water belongs to the people
4. The forests belongs to the people
5. The rivers and lakes belong to the people
6. The gold, the platinum, chrome, copper, iron, uranium, tin, aluminium, and all other minerals in the ground belong to the people
7. The coal belongs to the people
8. The diamonds belong to the people
9. Everything that grows on the land belongs to the people
10. The beaches, the mountains and the skies above belong to the people
11. The wild animals do not belong to us or anyone else, they belong to the planet and we are their custodians and protectors
These things DO NOT belong to the politicians, the government, or any corporation who has unlawfully claimed exclusive rights over it.
The government has stolen the country from its people. We, the people need to take it back.
Transformation to the UBUNTU CONTRIBUTION SYSTEM cannot happen in one step. It can only be introduced in a number of phases or small steps to allow people to acclimatise to the brand new way of life and the freedom that comes with implementing the new structures. These will be highly liberating and exciting times with limitless possibilities for everyone.
The first phase will be the slow and steady decentralisations of the urban metropolitan jungles that have evolve as a result of the chase for money. The repopulation of the many smaller towns and villages across South Africa will be the first objective. Strong rural and farming communities with a variety of privileges will provide the platform for all future steps.
This boosting of these communities will be accompanied by the first wave of freedoms previously denied.
To recognise these freedoms let’s remind ourselves of some of our inalienable rights. If the land belongs to the people, the rivers and the coal in the ground belongs to the people, why are we paying for these? All rural towns and farming communities will have the following freedoms.
Medium term – FREE FOOD
All possible support will be given to the farmers to produce as much organic food as possible for their own community and other communities in their area. The objective is for each community to be able to provide all the food necessary for their own needs.
The ultimate objective is not only to provide free food, but to slowly move towards the complete eradication of money from the system. Some people may find this a shocking and impossible reality. Once again, all negative sentiments about these plans are based on thousands of years of indoctrination by those who control the supply and flow of money.
The Needs of Society
What do we need as individuals and communities? The answer has been the same for thousands of years. Food, love, shelter, health, education, arts, culture, science, technology, energy, clothing, tables, chairs, books, boots, hats, and much of all the other stuff we have today. What we do NOT need is money. Money has been created as tool of enslavement to control the availability of all these things, most of the time denying people of most of them.
Most people are under the incorrect assumption that money is the consequence of human evolution and thousands of years of barter and trade. As hard as this may be for some people to accept, that is an incorrect assumption. Meticulous scrutiny of our human history shows very clearly that money was introduced several thousand years ago, by a small group of royal political elites as the supreme tool of enslavement of the masses. Since the very first introduction of money this small group of very powerful individuals have controlled the printing and supply of money, and thereby control the activities on planet Earth.
Money is the obstacle to all progress and the cause of all misery on Earth.
Money is the major contributing factor to the gross separation and segregation in society.
Money is the cause of 99% of crime.
Money causes families to fall apart.
Money is the driving force behind ego, gluttony, jealousy, greed, envy and all the ugliest aspects of humanity.
The solution is quite clear. REMOVE the problem.
Remove MONEY from society.
The UBUNTU CONTRIBUTION SYSTEM is a blueprint for a new social structure in which everyone is absolutely free and equal.
A society that functions without the concept of money, any form of barter or trade, or the attachment of value to material things.
A culture where each individual is encouraged to follow their passion and contributes their natural talents or acquired skills to the greater benefit of all the people in the community and society at large.
A society with a new set of laws based on the needs of the people where everything is provided freely to everyone who contributes.
A society which promotes the highest levels of scientific and technological progress.
A society in which arts and culture flourishes allowing people to experience life to the fullest.
A society in which spiritual growth of its citizens through the explosion of arts and culture will allow the rapid rise of consciousness to fully embrace the concepts on unity.
The system provides unimaginable abundance of all things on all levels, impossible to imagine by those trapped in the capitalist consumer-driven environment of today.
