This Economic Collapse: We are watching greed destroy lives and the real world around us in the forlorn hope that this dying world order and their system based on money will be saved

September 30, 2022 Leave a comment

Before anything else, it’s important to understand that whilst the decisions taken by Prime Minister Liz Truss and her Chancellor represent nothing less than doubling down on the very same stupidity that brought us to where we are now, the chaos they have caused is not itself responsible for the bigger system collapse that is underway.

Like most things in the public realm today, it just serves someone’s self-interest and an agenda that doesn’t help anyone else, for it to be made to look that way.

No, this blog is not an apology for Liz Truss and the ridiculous nature of her first 3 weeks in No. 10. But as I wrote before the disastrous ’mini budget’ last week, there remains a chance that Truss will do a massive u turn on everything, and for anyone with just a little humanity, who cares about where this is all going, this surely must be a shared hope.

So much hides in plain sight in this money obsessed world. Smoke and mirrors and sleight of hand are at work everywhere. And as usual, even when everything is turning to chaos, neither the media nor the majority of people are even considering, let alone asking the questions about all that is happening, as we all really should.

For instance, how is it possible or how can it be that the £Pound can go into free fall and push the British economy to the edge of an economic crash, just because financial traders and people working in money and the markets lose their nerve or start placing bets on what will happen to our currency next?

There is little to be gained by exploring this massively dangerous anomaly here. Other than to state clearly, that this is perhaps the best demonstration of where power in this money-based order lies. And that the meaningful influence and real responsibility for life and living does not lie with the people who we might think.

Begin to consider just how this situation rolls out across almost everything and every part of life. You will soon have other questions in your mind about how every part of life could have reached a point where we all exist at the whim of just a handful of people who have no care for anything out of their own sight.

Out of sight, out of mind, really is dictating the quality, content and realities of millions of people, their lives and their life experience. Not ethically, consciously or considerately. But in yet more ways that money – for just these greedy few – can be made.

No politician within the system that we have now will stand up to or do anything that will inhibit, restrain or redirect the activities of these interests. Not least of all because those running, managing and operating what are basically scams have the power to destroy economies and currencies in a moment; But because of our politician’s slavish devotion to this same money-based order, that all of their careers and futures – no matter their party – have been formed.

The financial, economic and currency system that we have today may well have worked well for the majority of people, IF there had been a sizeable and unavoidable chunk of ethical practices, morality and basic humanity involved and maintained from the very start.

Sadly, not only have principles and consideration of the consequences of every decision – over many points removed – never been present, the whole system and everything it touches has become infected, dehumanised and even less caring about what happens to anyone and everyone else. All as the flaws of the system have evolved and spread to everything since the Gold Standard was abandoned in 1971.

This is NOT the only way things can be.

This is NOT how things should be.

This is NOT how anything needs to be.

There is regrettably an element of truth in the thinking that nothing or no part of this can be changed, at least for the time being. Simply because the continuation of any part of this system, where people invested in it remain in control, means they will only allow and consider change which solidifies their position or will further advantage them in some way.

However, the collapse that these interests are trying to prevent with the very same tools they used to create it, cannot itself be controlled.

The people in charge, whether it’s elites, bankers or politicians, are in fact a very long way from having any sensible or rational ideas about how they can save their dying world order.

That’s why we have wars, pipelines being blown up and ridiculous suggestions being made without a hint of irony that growth for ‘the haves’ is the only way that hunger, poverty and shortages for ‘the have-nots’ can be solved.

Not only those awake to the whole money lie, but the majority who now know that something has gone very wrong, will soon have the opportunity to choose a very different way.

This choice will come when this money-based system has broken and collapsed to the point that it stops working and its very functionality no longer makes any logical sense to people who can no longer be taken in by the con.

There is a lot of pain ahead that people should never have had to be exposed to. Indeed, it was never necessary that any of them should.

It has just been greed, selfishness and the absence of care and consideration for our fellow man that has brought us to the place that we are now, and that we must now face in the weeks, months and years ahead.

By continuing, choosing to continue, agreeing to, taking part in or supporting any of the establishment ideas and tribal thinking that currently exists and will be pumped out at us as the situation becomes critical, it will be made very easy for us to believe that in the hands of the establishment and the dying world order, things can only get better – or at the very least, back to where and how we’ve always known them to be.

However, the system is and has for a very long time been broken beyond repair.

That’s why this system and the old world order is really dying.

The broken bricks and the carcass of this system and its governance can only be used effectively by those who wish for greed and the control of others to continue, by bolting everything that already exixts together even more tightly – which will mean increasing amounts and very intrusive measures of control over what is left of ‘free life’.

Only those who believe they have something to gain by further enslaving people other than themselves will genuinely want to keep the money-based focus for everything going. And there are still a lot of them about.

The alternative is to build a new system and to create a new way of doing everything that is beneficial and fair to all. To quite literally raise a real phoenix from what doesn’t necessarily need to be ashes and build so drying much better and equitable for all, from the grassroots up.

Next week, I will publish my new book From Here to There Through Now. There I will go into much greater detail about what is really happening now, and how we can make the best of the situation, how we can survive and thrive as the transition takes place, and then step off and place the right building blocks working together in our communities as we recreate a people-centric world and remove all of the rot and disease that is rampant within the current system that our new world will replace.

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.

The Basic Living Standard | A Direction

Everyone is looking for answers to the growing number of problems that we are all experiencing. But what many of us don’t realise is that the difficulties that we now face all boil down to the way that the world – or the system around us works, and has been doing so without real scrutiny, for a very long time.

Today, the world operates in a Top-Down and hierarchy-heavy way. It does this, because everything has become money or wealth centric, and completely focused on what people have, what they earn, what they are or what they can be. The whole undercurrent is little more than greed.

To put everything right, we have no choice but to change and put people first.

The Basic Living Standard is the benchmark and foundation of how we can create a very different world where everyone has the same framework of support from which to step off into life from the start.

Yes, it’s a very different way of looking at life, at people and at the world. But at its heart is the reality that if we want life to work fairly and in a balanced way for everyone and not least of all ourselves, we have to make every decision about life and living not with money, the accumulation of wealth and what everything costs us personally; but with people, with relationships and with what’s really important in life, in mind instead.

The Basic Living Standard is “The winning line where everyone crosses or nobody crosses at all”

A True Economy is all about People. Not money. Not things.

The foundation of the new economic system ‘The True Economy’ will be the value that we place on people in a very practical and measurable way: The input or contribution that each person makes.

The ‘True Economy’ is quite literally all about putting People First.

By basing and then building our entire economy on the value of the input or the contribution that each person makes, we will create The Basic Living Standard for All.

It will be the priority of our whole new system of governance to maintain The Basic Living Standard, as by doing so, the majority of the social problems that we have, won’t just disappear or be removed from view. They will be gone for good.

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.

The Basic Living Standard (BLS) | How it works in practical terms | The BLS Wage (BLSW)

The Basic Living Standard (BLS) functions on the proportional division of what a working adult would earn for the equivalent of a working week in the lowest paid role.

The BLS Wage must itself always equate or be equal to the minimum amount necessary for that same adult to live safely, securely and healthily in a self-sustainable way, without the need of any kind of subsidy, or the requirement to engage in debt of any kind.

It is likely that the immediate thought of many reading this will be something along the lines of ‘But that’s not the way that wages work. We get paid and then we see what we can afford!’ – or something like that.

But this is the thinking of the old age. It is the thinking of the system and the governance that we are now leaving. It is the thinking of a system that is about what’s best for somebody somewhere else. It is the thinking that always prioritises someone other than us – all too often without you, me or any of us realising that’s the way that it always works.

Once we have set the framework that says the first rule of the new system will always be the principle of the BLS Wage, then everything that relates to or relies upon it, will have to redirect, recalculate, reform, reset and even restore.

The BLS and The BLS Wage will mean that people and personal freedom through material independence will ultimately be assured.

The BLS Wage and The Basic Living Standard will dictate that greed or the accumulation of wealth of any kind, will no longer lead the way for everyone in how they conduct their lives.

Personal Freedom through material independence is how life should always be.

Surviving The Great Reset | Getting to Good Governance when everyone wants someone else to come up with the solution and someone else’s solution is what we’ve already got

The entire aim of Levelling Level may appear only to be a functioning and fully localised society that is built around a Basic Living Standard for All. In reality, it is all about the journey or process of getting there through this  period of change and crisis too.

Governance or how we are governed in respect of everything, is key to achieving a new system that is built upon the foundation of a Basic Living Standard.

Work can only begin on building the new System of Governance that will provide a fair and balanced framework for all our lives, once we have rejected the current system that we know as ‘Top-Down’.

The point at which we will all accept that the current ‘Top-Down’ system cannot be fixed and has not or will not serve any of our best interests at any time will be different for each of us.

But when that moment comes, our thoughts will move on to what comes next.

The immediate problem is everyone wants someone else to come up with the solution, when someone else’s solution is what we’ve already got.

It is vital that when that moment comes. we all recognise that the solutions to the problems and the answers to many questions will not come by having another bogus election, where the faces and words might change, but we continue to have people motivated by self-interest at the ‘top’.

Once you believe there is a need for change, you will need to change everything else that you believe

One of the hardest realities to get our heads around is that much of the way we behave with others and interact with the outside world is based on nothing more than belief.

Furthermore, we too often then fail to recognise that the beliefs that we have – which govern our behaviour for the future, are actually based on experiences that we have had in the past.

The past is quite literally governing how we will interact with our future.

We are allowing rules that we either created for ourselves, or that society created for us, to dictate what happens in circumstances and situations where those rules are no longer fit for purpose, or don’t serve any of our interests very well at all.

Yes, it can be quite a strange moment when we realise that we are living in the past. But what many of us don’t understand beyond this, is that our acceptance of this part of our reality – without question, means that we also don’t question change or the behaviour of others, when that change or behaviour can be quickly labelled with ‘That’s the way things are supposed to be’. ‘That’s just how it is’, or ‘That’s just the way that things have always been done’.

To be quite fair, it will feel to many of us that the system we have or the governance structure around us has been a good one.

It has allowed the world around us to keeping turning. It has kept everything outside of our own bubbles working, so that everything we want is ready and waiting wherever it should be. It has made us believe that life is easy and can only get easier, without us even questioning what the real cost of this automatic surrender of our trust would be.

But we don’t really think about what’s going on around us. Because this is the way that things have been done for so long.

We trust that the people we elect are in office to represent us.

We trust that big business always put the needs and interests of their customers first.

We trust that the public sector works and operates to make life for the public better.

We trust that the establishment together, will always do right for all of us.

Yet as an increasing number of us are now realising, the time when any of these beliefs were created, was a long way back in the past.

We are beginning to understand and accept that placing our trust in the establishment was at best a mistake. At worst, it is being proven completely wrong.

The ‘system’ no longer works for the people. But because of our collective belief and deference to the way we believe things should work – even when they clearly aren’t, we fail to realise that the power everyone within the establishment has isn’t theirs because of the money, status, position that they ‘have’ or because they are special in some way.

It is because we have given them that power. And we have forgotten that power is ours, and we have every right to take it back.

Getting your head around the reality of where power really lies is hard enough. What becomes even more challenging is taking the next step to understand and to accept that all the tools that the establishment have been using to make life so easy for us, only work because we believe everything that we are being verbally or experientially told.

We are collectively blind to the fact that any or every part of the system would stop working immediately the very moment that we stopped believing what we believe about it. And that at the very moment we did so, we would be withdrawing from the establishment, what is our assumed consent.

There is a very good reason to make the effort to try and making sense of how the governance or ruling frameworks of the world that we know around us really work.

That reason is the system as we know it has not been run or managed in our best interests for a very long time.

The cumulative effect of decision after decision being made to benefit the specific interests of those within the establishment has been catalysed by the government response to recent events and the whole system is now in the process of a massive collapse.

The challenge presented to us all by what is happening around us right now, is that you quite literally have to see it, to believe it.

And if you still believe that the ‘system’ you have spent your life believing in will always work for you, even when it becomes very clear that it doesn’t, it hasn’t and it won’t, then you will not be able to see the damage that it is and has been doing when the time comes for us all to do something. The people and people just like them who we have all believed to be ‘in charge’, will simply be able to continue to count on your vote.

If you have read this far and have concluded that I am talking bollocks, I’d like to thank you for doing so and sincerely wish you all the best.

However, if you can see any of the truth in what I am saying, or even suspect that at least some of it could be right, please do keep reading as we are all on a journey that can no longer be avoided.

What happens next, is all about us realising that the power to do everything that needs to be done is in the hands of each and every one of us.

The power for creating a much better future isn’t based on the past and won’t simply appear in the future. Its all about what we think, decide and do right here in the moment or in the ‘now’.

The Great Reset: Knowing that others think so little of you only has consequences for you when they are the ones who are in control of everything

There’s a lot of irony in this statement, given the situation that we are now in.

Some people – like those needing food banks right now – are already experiencing the truth of this reality and the way the system actually works against us, rather than for us, right now.

Those of us who care about others may not be able to help those who need help right now, today.

But we can change and learn to do so. And by helping others through The Great Reset, we will end up helping ourselves.

This is what ‘Levelling Level’ is fundamentally about.

The tragic history of slavery is being used to make living innocents guilty, whilst each and every one of us is enslaved by a systemic crime that exists in real time

We live in a world today, where there is an obsession over the historic wrongs of slavery that were inflicted on people who they are not and who they will never know, by people who are not you or I that we have never known.

Yet what these apologetic obsessives don’t even realise is that an even more oppressive form of slavery exists right now in this day and age. It is the system that we live, breathe, work and exist in, where the politicians and the elites are the masters. Where our belief in the value of money and the value of wealth are serving as our extremely repressive chains.

But when the crash or systemic collapse finally hits us, we have the choice of freedom that ancestors of all races and backgrounds who were physically enslaved in an even less enlightened world than today never had.

We can choose to say no more and take back the power we have given to others to use our own weaknesses against us and learn again to value and have values based on all that we already have.

A video introduction to the aim of Levelling Level – with Adam Tugwell

Since first publishing Levelling Level at the end of March 2022, it has become increasingly apparent that a lot of you are reading pages that either resonate either because of what you already do professionally, or because you are driven by something to do with that subject in some way.

As Levelling Level is about achieving specific aims, but works through or perhaps only touches a good number of the many different issues and areas of life and public policy that the coming changes across society will affect, I thought it might be helpful to make a video and briefly explain.

Trying to get across just how complex, comprehensive and far-reaching the coming ‘Reset’ will have to be feels like an impossible task, simply because if our system was already working properly, it really would only be the responsibility of just a few of us to do.

Regrettably, it isn’t. We are where we are. The pathway to the new world that lies ahead now requires that we all get involved and that we all play our part.

I am currently writing more material about the process of change that lies ahead. But I would love to hear from you if you would like to discuss anything in the Levelling Level book, or perhaps you would like me to give my perspective on a related topic that I haven’t already touched.

You can find me on Twitter and Facebook, @levellinglevel or @adamtugwell, and you can reach me via direct message there or by e-mail on levellinglevel@gmail.com too.

Thank you for reading Levelling Level – Please like, follow and share with others too!

Best wishes, Adam (In a Starbucks, near Cheltenham, Gloucestershire (UK))

A Complicated World means Complicated Lives. Complication means the truth gets lost in the detail

You cannot and will not see the problems that are creating the feeling that something isn’t right, unless you are open or receptive to that information, or you are actually looking out for it.

To do that effectively and rationally, you have to have experienced those kinds of things before.

You will need to have studied them, worked with them, or your life needs to have already been touched by similar experiences in some way.

Levelling Level | Postscript

Right back in the early pages of Levelling Level, I referred to this being a very long book, delivered in a very short form.

Okay, so forty thousand words isn’t all that short.

But the point I was briefly attempting to make then and to which I am returning now is that the technical detail and complexity involved in delivering the wholesale changes to public policy that we MUST have, so that the world around us really is fair and balanced for us all, is so spectacular in its nature, that to many, it just resembles the very worst kind of fog.

What I realised as I wrote and worked on Levelling Level through late February and for most of March 2022, was that almost everything I was writing about, was a topic that I had written about in some isolated way before.

If you have found yourself focused on any of the topics and would like to read more, I would encourage you to visit my Blog www.adamtugwell.blog and use the search facility to find more about what interests you most, or alternatively read my other e-books that are available via the links within the Other Books by this Author list. I’m always happy to help where possible and can be contacted by e-mail at levellinglevel@gmail.com

Levelling Level | True Equality is found at the level of self-sustainability for all

You cannot make life better for anyone by only attempting to improve the environment around us, calling it levelling up.

You cannot make life better for anyone by attempting to force everyone to believe they are exactly the same, when you cannot change the way people think and so, the only way that you can make everyone appear to be the same is by levelling down.

In the pages of Levelling Level, I have attempted to lift the large rock that covers all of the problems within ‘the system’ or the way that the UK currently operates, that so many of us feel and experience in our daily lives, but at the same time, cannot seem to see.

I have talked about some of the key solutions, new ways of working and new ways of thinking or ways of living similar to them that we will soon have to consider and are likely to be forced by circumstances to adopt anyway.

That is, IF we genuinely desire things to change and wish to experience a world that is as fair to us as we perceive it being fair to all.

Levelling Level has been written from the perspective that it will be read only by you. However, the conclusions, solutions and suggestions are intended to benefit everyone as individuals, as neighbourhoods, communities and collectively as the United Kingdom that together we are.

Levelling Level | The Return to Values

Values and self-worth reflect in the way that we interact with others and how we come together with respect and care for others as a community.

Levelling Level is a way of being that recognises the only way to achieve and maintain the outcome of having a system that is fair and balanced for us all as individuals and as a community, is to create and secure a system that is fair to the poorest and most vulnerable individuals within our society before anything else.

The key step to Levelling Level

Levelling Level is built on the foundation of life being affordable for all.

The key step to achieving this is recognising that it is both the influences around life that are the problem and the influences around life that will also provide the solution.

Both the Tories Levelling Up and the Lefts Levelling Down are obsessively focused on addressing the perceived needs of the individual, literally looking at the problem from the top-down.

Levelling Level is the process of creating a level playing field by ensuring that the stepping off point in our lives for everyone is exactly the same – in terms of the practical circumstances that we are in or would be in, IF everyone started off with nothing or no advantages of any kind.

Anyone, no matter their beginning, always has the potential to achieve the best they can do for themselves, provided the environment and circumstances around them do not obstruct them or disadvantage them in some way.

However, when the environment or circumstances around anyone place them in a situation where their priority is simply to exist or to survive, and every part of that system around them is set to work against them in ways that suggest the disadvantage they are experiencing is wrong, the people in that situation are effectively damned from the very start.

Whilst laws and regulations may make the many factors and behaviors of others who in many cases unwittingly control this process technically legal, there is nothing good, ethical, or morally right about the way that this works.

The real change for us all that leads to Levelling Level must be the change in the way that we view the problems of others.

We must accept that creating the level playing field so that nobody has to fight just to exist is the most beneficial way that we can come together to help others. Only then will everyone have the choice between existing happily – which should be everyone’s right to do so, or alternatively to take every step that they can to thrive – in so far as their own abilities and outlook at any time will allow.

The role of government or the community in all of this, is quite literally to become or provide the system of checks and balances to create this level playing field, so that Levelling Level becomes the change in the way that we all think, and we really do have a system that is genuinely fair to all.

Overview of Levelling Level

The Tory Right named their latest response to it Levelling Up. For decades, Labour and the Left have responded to it with public policy that adds up to levelling down.

But what is ‘it’? Do our politicians actually know what ‘it’ is? What is ‘it’ they don’t understand?

Today, we find ourselves in the early stages of a cost-of-living crisis and a fall in living standards that is the worst since records began. But these are only some of the issues we now face.

Social mobility, debt, housing, energy, inflation or stagflation, healthcare, climate change, education, wealth inequality, fake news, crime, wokeism and many other problems join the list that’s fast growing into this out-of-control crisis that is touching everything we know, too.

Change is happening around us in ways that make very little sense. Yet the messages we hear in the media and from our politicians suggest that everything is as fine as it can be. It is leading many of us to assume that we are alone with our views and feelings; thinking that we must be going mad.

The UK is the person with major health problems. It’s in a beauty salon, where every wannabe politician must be seen as top dog by everyone. But this political class are just the Saturday morning trainees, only able to sweep up and comb hair*. They smile sweetly and tell the Country that having a great look is all it takes to fix the problems experienced by all. Meanwhile, what the UK really needs is every form of medical surgery known, with the mental health care and physical rehabilitation necessary to make every part of our system work together, returning the UK to full fitness and providing fair and balanced lives for everyone in the shortest time possible.

With an establishment obsessed with sound bites and messages, rather than public policy that has real depth, Adam Tugwell unpicks the realities of Levelling Up, levelling down and decades of mismanagement and self-interest from a political class that simply isn’t up to the job.

Adam demonstrates that the broken tools of a flawed political age will always leave someone, somewhere behind, and shows that our politicians are repeatedly failing to create the social backstop that the UK needs to stop anyone being avoidably disadvantaged.

Levelling Level focusses on the inevitable process of change affecting everything around us that underway today. It discusses how we can harness the experiences that will accompany the challenges that we face to make life better by establishing a Basic Living Standard for all.

Levelling Level proposes that it is not money and financial wealth, but people and the way that our society treats its poorest and most vulnerable that underscores our real value, success and health as communities and as a Nation.

Levelling Level is a solution to the UKs problems that works for all.
