The only fair and just solution to the problems we face, isn’t left or right. It is a middle way that no political or economic ‘expert’ will like

August 12, 2022 Leave a comment

The only thing worse than the failure of the capitalist experiment – which is the reason for the cost-of-living crisis and the systemic collapse that we are now in the early stages of – is a new narrative, already at work across podcast, vlogging and social media platforms, telling us that capitalism is absolutely great – it just has to be done in a different way.

If this ‘we would do it better and make it work’ mantra sounds familiar, it’s because it’s almost exactly the same one that we have been hearing for decades from the apologists and champions of socialism. Or rather communism or even Marxism in its most inhumane and punishing forms.

Uncomfortable as the reading may be, the painful reality is that what socialism and capitalism in their many respective forms have in common, is it is only their leaders, crown princes and elites that benefit from these perverse systems of governance. They just play to the vulnerabilities and ignorance of the very people they keep captive, through idealism or an obsession with money and wealth, in their most malevolent and destructive forms.

Sadly, our cosseted and entitled world, is a very long way from the experience of Stalin’s historic Gulags, contemporary North Korea or some of the very dark places that China’s ruling CCP hides away today.

So, the innocent idealism that accompanies the inexperience of our massively overlooked young, is all too easily taken in. It is manipulated and misled by the militant generation and their sleepers. Unforgiving victims to the realities of life, whose anger, bitterness and complete lack of understanding of the human experience beyond their own bubble makes the young all too easy for them to betray.

At the other extreme, greed, self-interest and an obsession with power and wealth that drive everything in this failing system, have intoxicated even the most virtuous at every level and nuance of life.

Decades of manipulation and propaganda have made us believe that material wealth is the only way that happiness can be obtained. Old and young alike are so drunk on all that they have or could possess, that they do not believe it possible that a system that feels so good, could never ever fail them or go completely wrong.

Few understand that we are all part of an addicted society, where everyone’s habit is money, wealth and whatever it takes to get it.

Yes, the rules are set by some very wealthy and very greedy people at the top. But they have successfully bent every part of our lives to the will of a greed that has then infected our lives so effectively, that we have forgotten the true meaning and value of any part of life that doesn’t carry a price tag.

The most bizarre twist of similarities between capitalism and socialism is our obsession with this same material wealth. It’s just on one hand the messaging tells the unprivileged population that it should reject it and every part of it. Whereas the other demands that we allow it to takeover our lives in every possible way.

Wealth, prosperity, ownership and individual success are not wrong. Its how we behave when we have them, or what we do with them, that can lead to unimaginable crimes.

The biggest crime of all that has been visited upon humanity by these religions and wealth based political ideologies, is their success in making everything in life all about money in some way.

But it is people, not money or things, that we should always put first.

No Labour Government, no cryptocurrency, no Liz or Rishi, VAT Relief on Energy Prices, Cash Handouts, Qualifications without study, Universal Basic Incomes, Strikes, Inflation beating wage rises, The WEF ‘You’ll own nothing and will be happy’, or any other self-serving tool of the political left and right alike will work to benefit anyone but those who are sat at the top of these top-down, self-serving trees.

There’s a flow chart for all of them. It always goes in exactly the same way. The flow slowly but surely takes everything. In return it sells us much, but in truth gives very little back.

Yet the flow of life should always go full circle and come all the way back around. So that everyone is able to exist and just exist if that’s all they really want to do. Anything and everything else should just be effort related. This is the meaning of ‘you get back what you put in’.

The alternative to these failed and flawed political and economic philosophies that all belong to a money obsessed world, is for us to choose to take the middle way.

The only option or choice to solve all of our problems, is to put People First.

A People First society works from the grassroots up. It puts people and their communities first, providing the legislative, social, business and supply chain networks that put the sustainability of life and the self-sustainability of each and every individual who can work (supporting those who cannot), before anything else.

A People First society requires that all businesses and their processes place the needs of essential living for the community and the advancement of working conditions as their priority. That earnings beyond break-even, are responsible and not traded beyond those who have a direct interest or are actively involved.

A People First society puts governance of the people, for the people, by the people above all things, and always prioritises localism first. It recognises the need for collaboration at every level. But respects collaboration should never itself require the surrender of relative powers at any level of local agency or of our own control.

The central tenet, pivot point or anchor of The People First Economy is The Basic Living Standard or The Basic Living Standard for All.

The Basic Living Standard requires that the minimum wage or wage paid for the least demanding role that any society may have, will always be enough for the person who earns it to cover the basic essentials of life.

The Basic Living Standard for All requires that an independent adult will always be able to feed, clothe and home themselves. To provide for their own basic communication, transport and entertainment needs, along with everything that is essential to ensure that person can exist without third party support, without subsidy from government (benefits) and without having no choice but to go into debt.

By adopting this formula and requiring every part of society, business, industry and other to focus on The Basic Living Standard and doing nothing that will compromise it, either intentionally or unknown will assure its success.

The Basic Living Standard for All will ensure that every part of society, our system of governance and fundamentally the ways in which we live, will redirect to putting People First – which is now the only sustainable way that we will survive and live free and happy lives.

The Basic Living Standard will encourage people to achieve, excel and do whatever they really want to do. But in a People First economy, nobody will be able to do so by exploiting or riding off the back of others, or without regard for the real consequences or true cost of anything they do which can or has the potential to affect the lives of others.

The prioritisation of People, communities and locality first, will not only solve the problems created by greed, by envy and the hatred they promote. It will also address the climate issues, which are the consequences of years of greed-driven abuse of the environment and overuse of natural resources too.

With things as easy right now as we have been brainwashed to believe they are, change would not be possible for any of us in what we understand to be ‘normal’ times.

However, most of us already know we are no longer in ‘normal’ times, even if it’s not something that we find easy to say out loud.

Whilst politicians and the elites are still pushing a narrative using their pet media that suggests that everything is planned and thought through, there are no alternatives, and above all – that they are in control; the truth is that they are not.

The cost-of-living crisis and everything that is now going wrong with public services like the NHS in the UK, are all part of a systemic collapse. A collapse of everything we know that is both their responsibility and their fault.

When it hits YOU and the people who are important to YOU – in whatever way that will be, that will be the moment YOU have the choice to decide what YOU want to do.

Just remember; a leopard never changes its spots.

The Basic Living Standard is proposed as the solution to our problems in ‘Levelling Level’, a book that I wrote and published in early 2022, where I also discuss how we got here, what’s really going on, and how it’s possible for us to thrive and survive throughout the difficulties and challenges that we will soon face.

Both Levelling Level and my shorter e-book about The Basic Living Standard are available to read as books for Kindle and can be bought and downloaded from Amazon by clicking the links below.

However, the complete content is available to read FREE on my other blogsite www.levellinglevel.wordpress.com, where you will find the index of all pages on the right-hand side of the PC or Laptop viewed screen.

Things will get worse and worse until they can get no worse. Only then can the change we all so desperately need begin

If you are following the Conservative Leadership ‘race’, even from a distance, it is easy to fall into the trap of believing that things really will change for the better. Just as soon as the new incumbent (aka Prime Minister), has been appointed by Tory Members, the world-famous door to No.10 has opened, and they have very publicly walked in.

SPOILER: It won’t.

In fact, if you have been listening, hearing, and really thinking about all that the two wannabes and ALL of the politicians across Parliament are telling us – that is, if you feel genuinely able to keep engaged – you will quickly realise that there is nothing new in anything that we are being told.

In fact, all of the bullshit we are having pumped at us from every direction only confirms that what we can expect is just the same and nothing more.

ALL of the politicians, the parties and the people who have held their seats and roles before them have been doing exactly the same things as today’s politicians are.

Our politicians are motivated by ambition, by wealth, by celebrity and basically by anything and everything that they can secure for themselves. It doesn’t matter the party or tribe to which they belong.

The divorce from reality and the real world that you and I live in, which even the most well-intended of these politicians inevitably suffer – because they are so committed to doing what they are told – has meant that those behind the scenes, at the top of business and across the establishment, the people who have agendas, have been able to influence the legislation that controls just about every part of life and the way that public policy works.

The elites have literally been aided and abetted to create a system that filled their pockets. Whilst the helpful idiots that have infested our political system, keep peddling the myths that everything is being done in our best interests and that we should accept it all as being right.

The slavish way that our MPs are motivated and behave, means that whoever is in  power, forms a government or is sat in No.10, there will be no meaningful deviation or change in policy that moves us away from the very same narrative that overrides and feeds into the way that the UK has been disasterously  for decades.

Tory, Labour, Liberal Democrat and other politicians have managed and made each and every choice, decision, action and event which has led to the problems that many of us are already experiencing now, along with the even bigger issues that we now inevitably face.

It really is already ‘baked in’.

This whole narrative has regrettably played continuously to the darker side, desires and wants of human nature. Sadly, we have all, at some level, bought into the money focused world.

Even now, we all continue to bear responsibility for the damage that is being done by selfishness and greed at every level of society. Even when increasing numbers of us recognise that the process of an horrific crash of our system and everything that we know is already underway.

Good, responsible politicians, who are genuine leaders and public representatives, would have anticipated and stopped the fall that humanity is now going through, long before now.

Instead, we have people running the Country who quite literally think leadership is as simple as being the one who has the title and the job. That everything else just falls into place. That everything will work better and as it always should have done, simply because they as individuals are better than everyone else. And now it’s their turn.

After all, how could anything fail when everything in the whole world is just about them?

If you can stop and find a moment to reflect on what some of the people you may have already passed in the street today are already going through in terms of going hungry, not having enough money and looking at unnecessary price rises that are weeks away that are going to destroy lives. If you can start to visualise how events and the challenges we face are going to get worse and worse for a rapidly growing number of people from all areas, all social groups and all colours. If you can see that this is the greed of corporate monsters filtering through, whilst our MPs do nothing more than create more money for them, whilst continuously devaluing everything that we have. You will soon realise that the frustrations and anger that is brewing will very soon go beyond a problem that can be reconciled by the establishment politely suggesting that everyone outside Westminster should do no more than bite their tongues and count to ten.

The politicians that we have today will not change their path, nor their direction. Not until the situation and circumstances for us all are seen and accepted by everyone to be outside of their control.

It doesn’t matter that many of the problems manifesting around our lives now tell us clearly that this has already happened. That this political class are already well and truly out of their depth.

Whilst the narrative tells us this is normal. Whilst everything continues to look like its working. Whilst we continue to believe that this system is still working for us. The downward trajectory and process of destruction that our politicians started to facilitate decades ago will continue. The only change being that it will pick up more and more speed.

When you have no money that anyone wants. When you cannot buy the food that you need just to eat and survive. When you understand what the real value of caring for and about each other and the world around us, rather than how people see us, or what we have is what life is really all about. Perhaps then you will be ready for the change that we not only need, but which these people who have run the Country (and the world) into the ground have now made inevitable.

For as long as these very stupid and selfish people or anyone like them remains in control, it is only after everything has crashed and the system has completely collapsed that we can begin to look at anything getting better, of us all taking back our control and of building our new world from the grassroots up.

Wake up! Politicians cannot and will not change. They will not stop the unfolding disaster that they have created!

Uncomfortable as it may be to accept, the whole of the UK is on a downward trajectory and has a date with destiny that is going to touch everyone’s lives and will be very painful for most.

Many of us look at everything happening as if the problems that we are facing are only the result of or are related to other things that are happening right now, today.

In fact, that’s what politicians and the establishment want and like us to think. Because it distances them from any of the responsibilities from everything that has happened, is happening today, and what will happen in the days, months and the years to come.

Yes, there are a lot of very greedy and self-centred people out there who are making the race into not only a cost of living crisis but a complete systemic collapse that will accompany it a lot worse than it should be, by deliberately exploiting watered  down rules and the incompetence of our politicians to stop them for doing all that they are doing.

It doesn’t matter whether its fuel prices, the obscene profits that energy companies are making when they complain that prices need to go up to cover wholesale costs, of the prices of food and essential goods in supermarkets that are jumping up purely, because the people responsible have nothing to stop them doing any of this, and they sleep at night with the idea that the government will simply fire more cash at us all to keep covering the incendiary cost.

They wouldn’t be able to do any of this, if we had politicians who held the responsibility of being our public representatives who were actually up to the job.

Instead, we actually have the complete opposite. So inept, incompetent and absorbed in their own race to obtain public glory by obtaining jobs that hold a level of responsibility, that our politicians do not understand and certainly do not want, the 650 people who ‘lead’ us don’t have the wherewithal to understand the consequences of anything they do.

Our politicians do not know how the systems of business and government really work. Worst of all, as they are not even leaders. Politicians do not have the ability to get all of the information and the wise heads together that they need to make decisions on our behalf in one room. And so, management of crisis after crisis by specialists from the most obvious sector, industry or area was born.

It is because we have had such levels of ineptitude running the UK (and in Countries across the World) for so very long, that we are in the mess that we are today. It’s why life for us all is now set to go very, VERY wrong.

Don’t be lazy and try to blame this on Brexit, on Covid or even Ukraine. Because by doing so, you are simply playing into these ridiculous people’s hands.

All of this mess was created by the people who are pretending to lead us today and by the people just like them who have been masquerading as our leaders from across all of the political parties for decades.

What is more, we really do have only ourselves to blame.

We have elected these people and every politician just like them. And if we want politicians to change, it is us and the approach that we all have to politics that cannot possibly remain the same.

Change starts with the way that we think about politics. The top-down hierarchy, the destruction it causes and the lives it is wrecking just so that the few can be happy has to stop.

Power must come back to our communities and reflect the lives of real people. Its time for grassroots up!

The best thing for everyone would be if every MP and Party we have stood down and agreed to never stand again. The problem is, big money would just replace them

There is a twisted hilarity to hearing the words come from your own mouth and almost watching them solidify as they cross the air, forming the sentence ‘Out of the two candidates running to be PM, Boris is by far the better choice’.

The problem for us all, is that when the choices you have from an entire Parliament and political system are so desperately bad, you at some point have to recognise that without a genuine alternative – rather than just another politician who looks and sounds different, and may well wear a different colored badge – we have actually reached the point in the downward spiral of this bolted-shut ecosystem where every change is just going to compound the problems and make everything worse.

Yes, the reality is that stark!

Whilst we cannot vote for a real Polternative, Boris and the entire muppet show or wannabes and out-of-touchies that surround him on all sides of the so-called political divide, are all that we can choose from. And this grim pool of self-servants will continue to block every seat to our Parliament until the disasters they are collectively responsible for have fully unfolded, and all of us outside of the Westminster bubble have woken up to reality and accepted that they no longer are the de facto choice.

We must wait, because they will not do the decent thing and walk away, as they ALL really now should. To do so would require them all to be very big and to have a level of self-awareness that is clearly absent, as the reality is that the UK would otherwise be nowhere near the situation that we now are in. Knocking on the door of a catastrophic downturn that may well signify the UKs role in the end of an entire world epoch, as we now arguably are.

However, this imaginary moment or lapse from their usual reason would be wasted if it were to happen today, as the big money that influences and controls everything that all of our standing politicians already do, would simply fill the void with other stooges who would do exactly whatever the money wanted them to do.

Sooner or later, we are all going to realise that the only way to break this seemingly perpetual cycle, where life is always dictated by how those in power, with influence or with great wealth believe it should be, will be to turn the entire top-down system on its head. To restore and rebuild our democracy with a focus on localism in its truest sense, from the grassroots up, and create a system of governance that puts human beings, life, the way we live, balance and fairness at the forefront of all public policy. You know; the way it should have always been!

**NEW BOOK RELEASE**: The People First ‘True Economy’ & The Basic Living Standard

Hi Everyone,

Following on from the release of Levelling Level at the end of March 2022, and the series of Blogs that many of you have been reading, I am pleased to confirm that the next eBook “The People First ‘True Economy’ & The Basic Living Standard” is now published and is available to buy and download on Amazon for Kindle.

This eBook brings together all of the material I have written about the basics of establishing a new economy as we transit and do what we can to survive the coming collapse and crises, and then work to thrive as we emerge on the other side.

All of the material within the Book is available FREE to read in Blog form here,. But if you would like to read the pages offline and in order, the cost for the Book version is £0.99 in the UK or $1.24 in the US, with availability in other Regions too.

Wherever you are, I really appreciate you reading everything I have been publishing about Levelling level, The Basic Living Standard and The People First Economy. It is, after all, about us all!

Best wishes,

Adam

Here’s the Back Page, followed by a link to Amazon:

Following the Book and series of Blogs ‘Levelling Level’ which together provide an overview of how we can survive and thrive through the coming collapse or ‘Great Reset’ and make it our own, Adam moves on to provide a focus on the creation and basic principles of a new People First economy.

A Money Focused Economy and a People Focused Economy are mutually exclusive.

In this second book, Adam tells us that we now have a choice between the money based system that dictates everything today, or an economy that is built and developed around life instead.

The basis, foundation or principle building block of the new People First or ‘True Economy’ would be The Basic Living Standard, which is a benchmark or guarantee that every person is assured of the same basic platform of a self-sustainable or fully independent life:

An adult, working a full working week in any job at any level, should always be able to feed, house, clothe and provide adequately for their own transport needs, whilst providing basic necessities such as communication themselves, without the need for credit, loans, benefits or third-party support of any kind.

With all forms of business and government activity, public policy and decision making focused and developed around The Basic Living Standard, a people-centric way of living and experiencing life that is balanced, fair and considerate of all is not only possible, it brings everything and every part of life into alignment too.

Money or People-based values: It’s all up to you.

The People First Economy revolves around the mechanics of a real minimum wage: Welcome to the Basic Living Standard

The Basic Living Standard for All is based on what we would today recognise as the minimum or living wage.

Today’s minimum or living wage is just a sum that is set by government as the minimum amount per hour that every employer must pay.

The Basic Living Standard instead tells suppliers of essential foods, goods and services, what the recipient of The Basic Living Standard Wage will be able to pay for everything that is set within the standard. Suppliers will not be able to charge more for essential foods, goods and services.

It would be a legal requirement that every supplier provides essential foods, goods and services of some kind. ‘Luxury’ products must always be secondary purpose, not the primary purpose of any business or organisation. They will not be able to develop their primary business, based on what people can ‘afford’.

Through the creation and implementation of The Basic Living Standard, we will give back the real value that is provided to us all, by everyone who at any time contributes to the community by working in any basic employment or role.

It is essential for everyone to recognise the value to all of our lives, that the most basic of roles actually have.

People who pick fruit. People who empty our bins. People who fix the roads. People who stack the supermarket shelves. People who deliver parcels and takeaways to our doors. People who make and serve our coffees. People who serve us a pint in the pub.

These are the people who undertake all of the very different tasks that make our life experiences easier in the most real and everyday sense.

These are the people who must be recognised through the award of The Basic Living Standard Wage, so that contributing to all our lives by filling any of these roles can be a genuine and happy lifestyle choice.

A call-out to App, Platform and Crypto Developers who want to support their communities

The chances are that if you are one of the many people with an interest in new currencies, new ways of living and a new (or a return to) people-centric world and way of living who has been reading through Levelling Level, my blogs and material I am continuing to create, you will by now appreciate that the collapse that I have been talking about, is already well underway.

I cannot overstate just how challenging it is for many people to understand that systemic collapse doesn’t necessarily mean that absolutely everything stops.

Because it could very well be the case that not everything stops at the same time, many of those same people will still continue to believe that the world around us is continuing as it always had.

This creates two specific dangers for us all:

  1. That these same people will literally stand still, do nothing and allow those whom have created all the problems we have now, to dictate and recreate a system that continues to work only for them, and:
  2. That when things do reach a critical point and we are experiencing social disorder, people will not look to ourselves and to our communities for the answers and the solutions, and instead will continue to listen and go around in circles – back to point 1!

Whilst I have little doubt that the world elites have simply gone too far to turn everything around this time (as they did when they last lost control during the Great Financial Crisis of 2008), it would be foolish to fall back on confidence alone to mitigate the inherent risk, that plans like those being pushed through the WEF narratives will succeed.

Preparation now, is and will be one of the most effective ways to counteract and lesson that risk. But more importantly, it is the best way to help ourselves, then people we care about and everyone within the communities where we live.

There is no doubt, that the success of the Local Market Exchange and the True Economy hinge on building new app-based exchange systems for foods, goods and services, and that these are fully interactive and linked to or with the fully localised or Decentralised Currencies that we need create and correlate them with.

All Local Market Exchanges will need a localised or franchised version of an app that works as follows:

  • Operates within geographical parameters that are definable using existing postal codes or GPRS
  • Allow an item (or group of items) to be swapped directly for a rate of currency to be agreed, OR another item (or group of items) IF the two parties involved in the direct transaction should agree
  • Allows a source of community governance to set the values of basic or essential foods, goods and services, but prohibits any other kind of change.
  • Shows what essentials foods, goods and services are available collectively to the community transparently at all times.
  • Makes any goods that are not essential to community members, (which could be the surplus of otherwise essential foods etc.) available to other Local Market Exchange Franchises – in the order of prioritising immediate neighbours first.
  • Is based on a membership structure that requires sign-in and acceptance of all terms
  • That will either be or can quickly and easily become fully interactive with a new Local Digital Currency that is directly linked to the number of ‘members’ in terms of the structure of its value, with the ability to change or rescind those values on the membership status of each member of that community group
  • That is fully open source.
  • Each ‘franchise’ will be owned by the community that manages it, with a salary to be paid from the local governance body to those administering the system on behalf of it.

Some of you brilliant people will know how to do this now. I realise just how time consuming this could be. However, the contribution that you could be about to make – if you can do this, or contribute to its creation – could be incalculable, in terms of the new world that we have to work together to create.

I will be happy to work with any of you who are developers to write the governance notes and create the process diagrams for the Local Market Exchange system model, so that a formal barter and exchange system that interacts with the creation of a localised Cryptocurrency can be created and be ready for when we need it, so that none of us have only the choice of beginning from the start with no help from others, when things are in a real mess.

It doesn’t matter where in the world you might be. Everything is about to become local in a way that many of us have never seen anything like before. However, it is also vital that we work from those grassroots-up, to ensure cooperation at every level right up to the equivalent of worldwide and international in the way that we understand it right now.

Love is international and has no boundaries. Practical reality always meets us at the front door.

We all have a stake in making sure that each and every community survives and then thrives as we transit through the change from the dark world we are exciting and meet the challenges that we face as we open the door to the new world of balance, fairness and light that lies ahead.

Developing New Local Currencies (Cryptocurrency, DeFi)

The Basic Living Standard and Basic Living Standard Wage creates the basic principle or governance requirement for how a complete Local Market Exchange, True Economy and System of Governance will work.

Everything quite literally anchors to or hinges upon The Basic Living Standard, which is a universal benchmark, which in terms of the Basic Living Standard Wage, provides the basic exchange rate between all local or decentralized currencies, or any umbrella, centralised or connective currency that then can link them all.

A currency that works on a fair and balanced basis must correspond to its own system of governance.

The fairest, most balanced and most democratic form of governance is where power it attributed and responds in its most local form.

As such – despite the commonalities between different currencies, the power to govern local currencies must remain local – not for the purchase of essentials – but so that non-essential goods, can always be exchanged at rates which correspond to the idiosyncrasies of production in their very localised form.

Beyond the practicalities of the requirements of the Local Market Exchange system, it is also ethically correct to keep the balance of power that accompanies use of digital currencies and finance in their most dispersed, local and transparent form, so that they cannot be used as a leverage tool within an oversized governance system that relies upon coercive control.

Local Decentralised Finance (DeFi) in the form of Local Cryptocurrencies that are linked only by the Basic Living Standard, assure our personal freedom from tyranny in any kind of form, in the most basic sense.

That process or supply chain must always be as simple as its possible for it to be. It is through the accumulation of additional stops or steps in a supply chain that don’t add value, but add additional and unnecessary costs, where so many problems begin.

The roles that we have will be redefined and reconsidered as the evolution of our new system takes hold. In fact, some of the jobs that have been highly regarded for all the wrong reasons during this dark age that is now ending, will simply no longer be ‘needed’ and will no longer have any reason to exist.

We can have a money-focused economy, or we can have a people-focused economy. But we cannot have both

The really hard bit of the coming collapse or crisis that through things like price rises and the cost of living crisis can already be seen to be underway, is understanding, accepting and then acting upon the reality that our destructive relationship with money is all about the way that we think.

We quite literally have to do ‘cold turkey’ to get over the money-based addiction that is destroying us and the world around us.

And as part of that process we have to accept that as is the case with every other addiction, there really are no different levels of addiction involved.

There is no halfway house.

If we continue to maintain our belief in money and continue to award it the value that we do in any way at all, we will damn ourselves to repeating exactly the same mistakes of the past, no matter how much we do to correct everything in life as we have the opportunity to do so right now.

Logic tells us that Boris should go. But we are a long way from logical times…

The one thing that the Tories have got right in the past two and a half years, was to wait until after the Queens Platinum Jubilee Celebrations were over, to announce that a Confidence Vote would be held over the tenure of the current occupant of No.10.

Whilst I suspect that the magic 54 letter mark was reached well before the end of last week, the fact is that people outside of the Westminster bubble really needed a little time away from the darkening skies that are forming around our reality. An opportunity to remember what being happy and being happy within a community can really feel like.

This isn’t likely to have been possible, if the ongoing question of Boris Johnson’s future was to have continued to have been the focus over the weekend. And it wasn’t as if with talk of him suddenly finding solutions to the NHS crisis, the man himself didn’t give it a try!

However, uncomfortable as the reality may be for everyone to accept, right now, there simply is no better option for any of us than to continue to have Boris Johnson as our PM.

Yes, it’s a controversial view. Johnson really is the antithesis of everything that a good British Prime Minister and public representative in a serious democracy should ever be.

The problem we have is that the Conservative MPs and Ministers that surround him, as well as Kier Starmer and ALL of the other Opposition MPs offer nothing that is any better than what we already have.

In fact, with any of the alternative options that we have today, we have to reconcile ourselves with the reality that things could quickly become even worse than they are already destined to be.

Like it or not, Johnson is nothing more than the figurehead of an entire political culture that is rotten from top to bottom. A political system that has self-interest and the greed-based culture that is destroying everything we know, firmly at both its base and at its core.

Even a General Election wouldn’t remove these people. It would not remove the threat that they are. Politics and power to do anything good in the UK is currently held up behind a closed door.

The Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats effectively have a monopoly on who gets into Parliament.

The three main parties are gatekeepers, allowing access only to those who follow their closely shared ideals which only look and sound the same.

The political parties preclude and obstruct the entry of politicians who have the genuine ability to lead. Today, there is zero hope of us having leaders who will never compromise themselves and their responsibilities to others by being nothing more than yes men.

A massive problem for us when every decision for MPs revolves around saying yes as just another step to the top. But then the person at the top can only say yes when it’s time to lead, and leadership is also a lot about knowing how and when to say no.

Outside of our Parliament, the options for the next General Election – that may now come a lot sooner than we were expecting – are not any better.

Those that talk up ‘alternatives’ believe that the alternative we need is as simple as giving the electorate a choice that means the incumbent parties are simply swapped or replaced.

But we cannot go on with anything or anyone that represents the greed-based culture and the thinking that underpins and fuels it like we have now and have always had before.

Top-Down doesn’t serve any of us anymore. It never has and we are now at reaching the end of that line, and hitting the buffers is going to come with a crash.

Changing the Prime Minister or the government for just another version of what we already have will make no difference before the runaway train reaches the end.

The problems our politicians have created are now too serious. Printing more money – which will just speed the disintegration of everything up – is the only tool in their kit that any of them now have.

Logic tells us that a changing of the guard would mean that new faces will be ready to solve all the problems. But they won’t.

This whole political culture is invested in everything that is wrong with the UK today and doing the same things that caused all the trouble all over again will not lead to different results.

The MPs that we have will not stand aside and let new people and new thinking take their place.

We therefore have little choice but to wait until circumstances force their hand and push them out of the jobs they so wanted and the responsibilities that they now wish they didn’t have.

In the meantime, it’s all about damage limitation. That very regrettably means it’s likely to be in our better interests to leave Boris and his massively difunctional administration in place.

The World can be focused on money, or it can be focused on people. It cannot be focused on both.

Man cannot have two masters.

We either value everything to do with money or we value everything to do with life.

The biggest challenge we face in the coming months and years, isn’t the cost-of-living crisis, the financial turbulence, the monetary or systemic collapse. It is the process of understanding, accepting and finding the resolve to live our lives in what seem to be an unfathomable way. That of putting People First.

Many will read this and argue that putting people first is what they already do. But they don’t.

In fact, if wealth, power and the accumulation of money in any form or in any way, comes into our thinking as the priority in the way that we approach any part of life, the reality that we all have to face is that our thinking is part of the problem and is therefore part of the cause of all the problems that we collectively now face.

This is not a question of having things or money of any kind. It’s the question of how and where our values are genuinely placed.

If we always consider the impact of what we do upon others, and what the consequences of our actions upon others will always be – not just in the room, but what the impact on the next person to visit or to follow after us might be, there will still be enough of everything for us to have and to enjoy our lives, but everyone else will always have that very same opportunity too.

We can only have a society, culture, way of living and experience that is fair, balanced and considerate of all, by putting People First in everything that we do.

We can quite literally live our lives with our focus only upon money, wealth, power, influence and everything to do with it. Or we can live our lives putting people and our relationship with others first.

There is no middle ground. There is no ‘so many parts of one’ and ‘so many parts of the other’. Our focus will either be on money and selfishness with an inevitable cost for others – no matter the part we play. Or our focus will be on people and putting people first in everything we do, knowing that we are always doing the right thing for everyone, and that by doing so, we are actually putting our own values system first.

What we have to accept is that rejecting the Money Based Order won’t result in loss. In fact, we have everything to gain. The only real difference is that we will not see money and the things that revolve around it in the same way again.

Money is our master now. But it is people that we should always be putting first.

The Money Based Order – The part we currently play

Sadly, we are or were all in on the con.

The very clever thing about the Money Based Order, is that its addictive nature thrives because it plays to one of the darker and most self-destructive parts of human nature, which is to put ourselves first.

When we indulge selfishness of the Money-focused kind, it simply doesn’t matter how big or how small the gain or advancement we perceive the accumulation of ‘wealth’ or ‘power’ in our lives to be. We are meeting the needs of that addiction, and somehow have the perverse message playing like a soundtrack that tells us all that we are on our way to the top.

As this is the way that every part of life now works, we have reached a point where pretty much everything we do, we look at or even the interactions we have, are all based on the bottom line of what value will come out of that interaction for us.

The strange thing is that by playing along with the workings of the Money Based Order in even the smallest of ways, we have dedicated ourselves to a pathway of addiction. An addiction that has the ability to change our lives and destroy our integrity at a personal level immediately, whilst at a community, cultural or national level, the whole process can and has taken decades or centuries to reach the outcome of its various plays.

It is Money, not the Technology that it finances, that dictates the way we behave in a Technological age

The myth of technological advancement is that innovation only exists to make money and that life must change to fit around it.

The truth is that innovation exists to improve and enhance the ways of living that we already have.

Those who have owned or financed technological change have simply harnessed and continue to harness it to make more and more profit.

Meanwhile, their actions have directly resulted in lowering the quality of life or even destroying the lives of the very people that every technology – used without the focus being on profit – could be utilised to improve.

Why the Money Based Order or System is collapsing now

Even a system that is built upon a value set that is completely wrong, has rules that must be obeyed if it is to survive and last.

As generations of politicians, business leaders, bankers and other elites have passed, they have increasingly lost sight of the very framework that protects them.

They have taken their positions for granted, and increasingly failed to put enough back into the system to ensure that the myth still works for the very people they are abusing through their acts.

The combination of Globalisation and the adoption of The FIAT Money system took their greed too far, with the result that the divide between rich and poor has never been so far apart.  

‘Wealth inequality’ quite literally leaves people living and experiencing entire lifetimes with their productive focus being only upon what they need to do to keep their heads above water.

Life for far too many, has literally and unnecessarily become all about the fight to survive.

The people who struggle at the hands of The Money Based Order have done nothing wrong.

Many are innocent victims of a system that quite literally exists on the basis that for some to obtain and maintain excessive material wealth, it necessarily follows that others must fail or go without – so that the few can quite literally win and keep on winning.

But it doesn’t have to be this way and it never did.

We are in the End Days of a Money Based Order or System

The World is now in a period of massive and irreversible change. Change that has come about because of years, decades and yes, centuries of political and government mismanagement.

Leadership right across the World, has increasingly got its values and motivations completely wrong, leading up to and funneling into the massive crisis that we are facing right now.

This age of public policy mismanagement is based upon and has revolved around one thing: Money.

Today, we are experiencing the death throws of the Money Based Order.

Money Based, because the desire and pursuit of wealth, influence, power and everything that goes with it, all feed into the same perverse and twisted reality. One that over a period of many generations, has led to money becoming the benchmark upon which we measure the value of everything in our lives.

The greed that the creation of the Money Based Order unleashed could never be satisfied by the actions of those addicted to it.

Generation after generation of wealthy and powerful people, who have then handed that wealth and power down, have always wanted to accumulate more and more, with the next generation inevitably wanting to outdo the last.

What the elites responsible for all this have neither realised nor appreciated has been the true cost. The fact that every product, industry, profession or any other innovation or tool that has been created, that they have then harnessed purely with the intention of increasing the bottom line, has always come at an increasing level of human cost. One that could never be offset by the redistribution of even the largest sums of the profits they have made.

Through the cycles of the industrial ages, leading right up to everything and every innovation that we are experiencing now, the exploitation of the poor or poorer by the rich or the richer, has always been cleverer and better hidden than it ever was before.

The Money Based Order has gone through an entire process of evolution that began with slavery and people quite literally being physically shackled, through a process of evolution to the contemporary equivalent that we know as debt and every kind of financial misery that go with it.

Our plight today is arguably even more sinister and cruel. Because the prison cell is our mind, and the shackles hide in plain sight.
