The way for all of our own, our community’s, our Country’s and the World’s problems to be permanently solved = The Basic Living Standard

If you really want to understand the basic equation of all the problems that we, our communities, our country and the world has, it is this:

We value money more than we value people, our humanity and a good existence or life.

OK, so there are plenty of ways that we tell and convince ourselves that we live and experience good lives. But have you noticed how pretty much 99.9% of the time, our happiness or how we feel about something or an experience we are having, all comes down to using something that has been paid for or bought?

The money obsession or conditioning that we all have, means we place a financial value on everything.

We look at every part of life in terms of what the direct or indirect material value of everything is. The only exception to this is the relationships that we have with people we genuinely care about and what those relationships mean to us.

We are, in effect, completely absorbed in the way that we now live and how we perceive everything. This means that we are blinded to the alternative way of life that exists, which would be better for us all, in every healthy, balanced, fair and just way that is imaginable.

We don’t see that money or the lack of money, is the common factor with all the problems that we, our communities, the country and the world has. That there is never enough of it. And as more is created, the disparity between those with less and those with more gets wider and wider as the value that either rich or poor possesses also gets further and further apart.

For as long as material wealth continues to be the value set or benchmark that makes this world work, because of the belief that we all place in it, the number of problems that society has will continue to grow. There will be fewer and fewer solutions available to solve the growing number of problems that society has.

The alternative to this system and the hurt that it is causing those who believe they benefit in some way, is the complete rejection of the money based order and The System as we know it.

The solution to all our problems is the adoption of a people first economy, that places the value on people, humanity, community, our environment, the legacy and the responsibility that we have to all others, above money either being a benchmark for life, or being considered in any way to be and be valued as a ‘thing’.

The way this will be achieved is through the adoption, implementation and assurance of The Basic Living Standard.

The Basic Living Standard equation or formula is this:

All individuals will be able to support themselves fully on the equivalent of the lowest paid weekly wage, in a basic and healthy way, without debt or the need of support or help from any 3rd Party.

All laws, regulations, administrative and business practices shall reflect this basic requirement that underlines the basis of a truly just, fair and balanced society, and how it will operate and thrive.

The reaction that you may have might be that ‘This is impossible’. ‘This isn’t the way that the world works’. ‘You are suggesting we go backwards and live in what we understand to be feudal times’.

But this is not the case.

What you are hearing from that excitable voice from within, is the resistance to change of a system that you have been convinced is still serving you well.

But The System isn’t serving you well. The System isn’t serving any of us well.

The System is serving money and everything to do with money very well indeed. And the cost to us as individuals, as communities, as a country and as a world, is much greater than anything that the lie which is money can buy.

Few will see or be able to visualise the shift that will exist once the transition from a money obsessed way of living, to one that is truly people-centric in every way, until it actually exists. And as we walk forward into the uncertainties that lie in 2023 and the years that lie ahead, this is indeed the biggest problem and the biggest obstacle to better lives, good health and the real happiness that so few of us consciously recognise as being what we are missing from our lives and that we so desperately want.

The choice, as always, is yours. Together, it is ours.

This is about people and values. Our abuse of people and values is what all the challenges we are now facing are about. This is the outcome that all the difficulties we must now experience are for.

Levelling Level is much more important than Levelling Up, levelling down, or anything else our out of touch Politicians tell us they are doing or will do

We are experiencing and navigating our way through very challenging times.

But the problems we are facing as a Country, as Communities and as the People that we are, are not new. They have been getting progressively worse over a long period of time. They have been hiding menacingly in plain sight.

There has been no self-serving incentive for those who have the responsibility and power over our lives to take any meaningful steps towards finding genuine solutions to the problems that society faces. They are not equipped, skilled or motivated as they should be to do everything that is necessary to sort all of those problems out.

Whilst change is happening around us all the time, it often does so without us being consciously aware.

Sadly, we are unlikely to accept and embrace the kind of change that is now required voluntarily. The change required is so profound that it is only a unique set of circumstances that touch everyone and causes pain to each and every one of us in some way, that will provide the incentive for us to think differently in the ways that we can and already should.

Only then will we be open to a change in thinking that will create a much healthier way of living for us individually, as communities and collectively as a Country, making fairness, balance and justice a part of everyone’s life.

Such a unique set of circumstances or the direct consequences of certain events now exist and are underway. The changes to our experiences of life and our circumstance are reaching us all in different ways and at different times. They are touching us differently and this means we may not all realise and understand what is happening at precisely the same time.

A series of events, that began with Brexit, then The Covid Pandemic and then the Invasion of Ukraine, have become the catalysts that have precipitated and accelerated problems with everything that we know around us. We may not have been aware of them before, but the ignorance and stupidity of the governing classes has made it inevitable that the massive problems they have caused are on their way.

Today, the change is detectable in the form of the early steps of a Financial collapse and the collapse of Globalisation and the global supply chain. Whilst they are trying very hard to maintain control and convince us all of their power to do so, none of the current political elites have the power to control the collapse.

Ironically, it is the decisions that these same ‘leaders’ have made in response to these events that are the real cause of all the problems that People face today. This same malign influence has been at work, not just for the past six or seven years. This travesty has bee happening for decades in time.

Voices that represent these same few who are responsible for everything that is wrong, have been using the term ‘Reset’ or ‘Great Reset’ as a forewarning of how they intend to maintain the imbalance that gives them their power and wealth.

We will ignore these warnings at our peril.

Their misuse of these terms is a forewarning that the existing elites intend to use the collapse as an opportunity to reboot the existing system that has benefitted them so well, so that it will work even better for them. All of this will be under the auspices of what ‘is in our best interests’. But what it will mean, will be much tighter control.

However, what the elites haven’t banked on, is that things are set to change in such a way, and to such a degree, that all of the reasons and motives that drive these people – at considerable cost to us all – are going to be exposed to daylight. As some of them and what they have been doing already are…

The actions and motives of the elites will then be seen and understood by all.

The unsustainable ways that we have been living under their manipulative leadership will then come to an end.

We will be forced to revalue life and what the important parts of it are.

Times ahead are likely to be painful for us. But the pain of experience is how we really learn.

As we learn and realise what the basic essentials for life – in both a practical and mentally healthy way – really are, we will also understand what any of us would need if we found ourselves in circumstances where we were having to ‘just get by’.

This blog was originally published in April 2022 as part of the Book ‘Levelling Level’ and as a blog too. It has been edited and updated here by The Author.

The role of British Farmers has been neglected at our peril. Sadly, the politicians won’t see it until it’s too late, so it’s the Farmers who will have to begin the localised food supply chain revolution instead

Farmers are by nature, the most creative and entrepreneurial managers, engineers and technical workers that I know. They are, or rather they become these multitalented vocational giants by living lives that involve operational management, frequently calling them into action at any time, 24hrs a day, 365 days a year – pretty much from the day that they are born.

Farmers are, in effect, the complete antithesis of our Members of Parliament and the political class. And it’s because of the lack of understanding and respect for what British Farmers do, that the politicians we have – whether in Government or not, have allowed British Agriculture and all of the industries allied to and feeding into it, to reach the state that they are now in.

The problems that British Farmers face remain closely aligned to what their European counterparts are experiencing.

Indeed, whilst many from what in 2016 was the Remain camp are still pushing the narrative that leaving the EU and the whole Brexit vote was a gargantuan mistake, those same people are strangely silent when it comes to comment or discussion on what Farmers within in the EU Member nations are facing right now.

Across Europe, unelected bureaucrats and out of touch politicians are pushing an agenda which will see Nation States close down some of the very best food production in the world. All at a time when supply chains are already collapsing, there are growing food shortages and in no time at all it will not just be hungry people who are out of sight and out of mind that could be the ones who are about to starve or go without.

What underscores the futility and the madness of this perverse strategy, pursued by people who have never been at the hard end of an operational business in their life, is the reality that their grand plan mirrors the ridiculous decisions made by the political classes across Europe not only to shelve and mothball, but to destroy fossil fuel burning energy plants and sources. All coming under the ridiculous assumption that buying in supplies and services from elsewhere from across the World is not only safe, but can be sold to the public as being green and therefore alright.

Yes, you did read that correctly. The leading classes of Europe and the UK too, are and have for some time quite literally been shutting down, wilfully neglecting and even deliberately destroying our own national systems of production.

The politicians we have elected to look after our best interests have been making us all vulnerable to whoever they then do some kind of deal to buy replacement supplies and services from.

All of this is so that Politicians can pay lip service to fulfilling an impossibly idealistic promise of achieving Net Zero – or some other departure from reality based narrative they are pushing that isn’t just economic with the truth, but is an outright lie.

Why is the lie so important? The lie that the politicians tell is so important, because it’s just another lie to cover up the impact of another very big and very damaging lie about the benefits of globalisation and commercialisation – which is what the EU was always really about.

The irony should be lost on none of us that Globalisation and greed-based Commercialism are the real and genuine cause of all of the climate and environmental problems that we do genuinely have.

Equally, we should be under no illusion that the climate and environmental problems that we do genuinely have would go into free fall, in the direction of positive change, the moment that we stepped back from the money is god and a profit led existence, and allowed on-shoring, relocalisation and the protectionism that is now essential to the UKs future to be restored.

Whilst it will never be said about the European Union, even by many of the Brexiteers who never really understood this part of the EU Membership travesty themselves, the EU and everything about it has just been one disastrous exercise in globalisation and commercialisation.

The Common Market and everything that followed as part of the EU Project evolution was a self-serving spin off of the Globalisation myth, repackaged with the lie that with the overarching politicisation and centralisation of the European sub version, the issues that befall the removal of international barriers and the many risks it brings on a Global level, would never be our own.

As many of us can already see with just the Energy Crisis alone, this foolishness – however well intended, doesn’t work when so many differences of opinion, cultures and different ways of being are involved.

We can all see what has happened as a result of Western Governments responding as they have to the war in Ukraine, when the same politicians had destroyed our own self sufficiencies in order to ‘open up the doors’.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the impact of all the very poor decision making that got into full swing long before Brexit, Covid and Ukraine were ever in the frame.

Sadly, the system collapse that so many within the elites, the establishment and our own government are doing so much to hide, is already well underway.

It’s just the case that we are not all going over the cliff at the same moment in time. That’s why not all of us can see it. YET.

However, the fall of an entire industry that will affect all of us – our Farming Industry – is most definitely already underway. And we fail to realise, accept and understand this at our peril.

Yes, food is on the supermarket shelves. We can still get just about everything we could possibly want. So you are probably asking the question, ‘Why should we be worried about Farmers and British Agriculture now?

Sadly, we will not believe that life can be any different to what it is now, until it already is.

If you need an example that makes sense of this, cast your mind back to the beginning of 2020 when the first lockdown began and then life changed for us all in an instant.

We may have forgotten Social Distancing and Lockdowns for now. But many of the direct consequences of disastrously poor decision making on the part of our politicians is only just beginning to materialise now, nearly three years on.

Amongst all of the issues which are currently popular, the ability of the UK to feed itself is strangely absent from that list. Yet the UK Food supply is now at massive risk of collapse – That’s the supply of the food that we need to meet our basic needs and not the ridiculous variety of imported and mass processed items and ingredients that we have become used to.

Our Basic food supply is at risk for a number of reasons. These include the centralisation and globalisation of food supply chains which are going to collapse; the way that British Agriculture has been placed at the mercy of innumerable agents, resellers, speculators, traders and middle men who take massive profits whilst adding no value and push farm prices down, whilst pushing retail prices up; and decades of reconditioning under the auspices of EU membership that has led British Farmers to rely on subsidies that have taken away the incentive and freedom to compete.

There are many more.

The situation regarding our food supply is much more complicated and serious than it is possible to do real justice here.

The real tragedy and threat to us all, is that because our Politicians created or led the implementation of the market structures that are currently at work – even though they did so in no small part on behalf of the EU – everyone, and most importantly our Farmers, are expecting our politicians to ensure that every issue created by Brexit, along with the collapse of global supply chains and the fallout of other events such as the War in Ukraine, will be dealt with – as it is perfectly reasonable and logical for us to be able to expect.

They have not. They are not. They will not be addressed by the politicians we have.

I have been writing at length about the changes, challenges and difficulties we face. But this isn’t just the interpretation of one former politician and businessman sharing the reasoning of their own concerns. A former head of MI5 has warned about the issue of food security, as well as the National Farmers Union itself have been sounding the alarm.

The real problem that even these very credible sources cannot counter, is that our politicians are so out of touch and prioritise whatever they believe to be in their best interests.

It is not until you really begin to understand just how out of touch with reality our politicians actually are, that you can then start to consider and appreciate that the British People are heading for an extraordinary amount of pain, that would have been both unnecessary and avoidable IF we had politicians that fulfilled their responsibilities as they always should do.

Getting people and especially Farmers to realise and understand that the solutions will not come from this government or any new government that is formed from the political parties or groups that are known to us and that we have on offer to us today is challenging indeed. Especially as it means that the solutions we now need, through restructuring, onshoring and relocalising supply chains to a what we would recognise as being conversant with a much more traditional form, MUST be led with British Farmers and all of the related industries right out in front. Just as the political change that we all so desperately need must also come from the grassroots up.

I began writing this blog by making reference to the ingenuity and industriousness of our Farmers. This has already been well illustrated by the many ways that members of the Farming Community have already diversified their businesses, to become manufacturers, growers, producers and retailers of a very different kind, taking back control and managing every step of the process from farm to fork themselves, or working collaboratively on a very small localised scale, where it can quite literally be said that many hands make light work.

Whilst our Politicians will not accept this probably until it is too late to avert further harm, UK self sufficiency in food production, as well as the majority of the key things or basics that we are going to need, is not only now strategically key to our future. This is how world events and the UKs circumstances will soon dictate that they MUST be.

We cannot wait for the politicians to change their minds, or it wont just be the cost of living crisis, but shortages of basic foods that make British People hungry too.

Our existing politicians will always exhibit loyalty to the very system that has broken the back of British Farming for no other reasons than greed, profit and control. The existing Public Policies on Farming, Fisheries and Food have certainly never been for the purposes of benefiting UK Industries or British consumers – no matter the lies and the lies to cover up those lies that we have been continually told.

Please can we all wake up before its too late and there is nothing left to work with. We need a revolution in farming and we need it to happen now.

It will not come from the top and must run from the grassroots up. Farmers must be at the middle of local food supply – the way it should always have been.

The crisis that we face and the problems ahead were not deliberate. But they weren’t created by accident either

The UK and the world are sleepwalking towards disaster. Chaos that could have been avoided if the people who lead us – Our Politicians, had taken a very different approach to the way that they think, act and behave when it comes to the decisions they make.

Contrary to accepted thought or to any common or accepted narrative, the people who we currently elect to be Politicians are rarely the best fit to fulfil the role of being a public representative.

Poor Public Representatives make decisions subjectively, in an isolated or myopic way, and do so without due care and attention to the broad range of factors and considerations that the Public should be able to expect and already assume will inform the process of how objectively based Public Policy – which should be all of it – is made.

It is because we have been electing people who are not suitable to be Politicians for so long, that the negative impact from having poor decisions made repeatedly to solve that problems that previous poor decisions made by other unsuitable Politicians have created, that the effect on everything has been cumulative, getting steadily but unconsciously worse.

Bit by bit, ‘The System’ that we have has become increasingly skewed away from and in many ways proactively geared against balance, fairness and what we might call being just in about every conceivable sense possible, when it comes to the different life experiences that we all have.

The Way of Awakened Politics for Good Government: Now available on Amazon for Kindle

Hi Everyone,

I’m really pleased to announce that my latest Book for Kindle ‘The Way of Awakened Politics for Good Government’ is now published and available for download on Amazon.

As has been the case with ‘Levelling Level’, ‘The People First Economy and The Basic Living Standard’ and ‘From Here to There Through Now’ – which have all been published this year, the different pages or messages will be published separately and FREE to read on my different Blogs over the coming days this December.

The content will also be available to read on a more structured basis at http://www.awakenedpolitics.com

The Way of Awakened Politics for Good Government is very much a stand-alone work, as it proposes and discusses a methodology and approach to how we do politics, government and governance in pretty much every sense, rather than focusing on more specific solutions and suggestions beyond ‘The Basic Living Standard’ itself, as I have done in these 3 earlier books.

What I’ve learned from conversations with many different people with what often begin to be very contrary, sometimes entrenched and almost certainly the polar opposite to my own political views, is that proposing what I presented to them as awakened views and approaches in the same sense as proposed in The Way of Awakened Politics for Good Government usually makes a lot of sense.

Any resistance or opposition is then based purely on the idea that the way that the world works. More specifically how politics, government and the establishment works being fixed, and not subject to change – with the inherent suggestion that they know and accept that the way that ‘The System’ works is certainly far from right, but in their view its simply much safer for them and better for everyone if we all just ‘play along’.

As a former Councillor and Member of a District Level Local Authority where I was Chair of Licensing, both a former Parish and Town Councillor, formally a Senior Manager and Project Manager within the Charity Sector, a former Local Government Officer as well as being a successful Business Owner, Entrepreneur and Managing Director in commercial business too, I have become attuned to the practicalities and mechanics of the way that the different sectors all work.

What is clear today, is the way that the way that Politics, Government and the Public Sector work today – or more specifically, the way that the people with roles within all of them think, act and behave is now having a negative impact upon the life experience of many more of us than it is not.

‘The System’ is out of balance, is massively unfair and doesn’t maintain justice of an equitable and human kind in any meaningful sense.

Change is now inevitable. With it comes the opportunity to review, reform and reset the way that everything is governed on our behalf. We can either remain passive, stand back and wait for those who have subjective agendas to carve up our futures in their own self-benefitting ways, or we can take back the power that is rightfully ours and take part in laying the foundations of a much happier, fair, balanced and just future, based on ensuring that the frameworks and structures of governance that affect every part of shared or communal life are created, revised and maintained objectively and with what is always in the best interests of us all in mind.

10 Spoilers about the so-called ‘New World Order’ and what is really now underway

Despite the increasing talk about the plans of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and their dastardly plans for a New World Order, a lot of people have been blinded by the fear of what all this talk represents.

Sadly, many of the people outside of government and establishment influence who have public platforms have been drawn into behaving like rabbits in the headlights and they are unwittingly fueling this fear too.

Everyone needs to take a step back; count to ten and do the reading, research and thinking necessary to see the wider situation we face for what it is.

Yes, there is a massive system collapse underway. But this isn’t the birth of a ‘new’ world order. It is the death of the one that already exists. One that has been hurting us all more than we are ready to accept for a very long time.

Today we are watching the death throes of the world order that already exist. And the chaos is set to continue to get worse as all those who have knowingly benefited, desperately try to put out the flames of this collapse by adding even more of the fuel they used to create it (MONEY!).

If you are looking beyond the establishment and the mainstream media for answers that will only begin to make sense once you can move beyond the betrayal of trust and begin to reflect on how you have bought into all of this too, here are 10 SPOILERS or hacks for you to get started with:

SPOILER No.1: The WEF and all its cronies represent a dying world order. One that was once new and you’ll find politicians talking about it historically too. However, their ‘new world order’ is being destroyed by the very same tools that they designed to propagate and assure their own power decades ago, whilst they filled their own pockets at the expense and impoverishment of everyone else.

SPOILER No.2: The System and Economic collapse is happening, because the clever system that the world elites created to enrich themselves had its own set of rules. Generations of foolish and stupid politicians and the bankers and business leaders who influence them – motivated by their own ambition and greed; have long since forgot, completely ignored or been left out of the loop of their own secrets. The mess they have created is what we are all now experiencing as it unfolds.

SPOILER No.3: The only tool that this Money-Based-Order ever had was to create money out of thin air. The aim was always to benefit the few who understood the reality of ‘The Lie’, whilst perpetuating the myth for the many, that money has always been real. They quite literally created rules to support ‘The Lie’, making it a crime to work against a value and morality set that is no more than an idea which is based on making something real out of nothing but thin air. The many have not only increasingly lost out, they have been punished for the inadequacies and unfairness of this duplicitous system too.

SPOILER No.4: The people behind the Money-Based-Order don’t have any way to solve the problems that they have created that we are all now facing today. Their only option now is to print more and more money that has no value other than the belief that we all still attribute to it. Then, when the system finally collapses, they will do all they can to attempt to maintain and further impose control. The desperate steps that the elites are taking under the guidance of the WEF (such as stopping farmers from farming) are no more than a preemptive attempt to destroy the infrastructure that they know people will quickly harness for the common good, once the collapse has destroyed any remaining practicality to their plans.

SPOILER No.5: YOU CAN SAY NO MORE TO ALL OF THIS AT ANY TIME. The secret is hidden within us all. The secret is all about the way that we think.

SPOILER No.6: The only reason that the things we consider to be normal and part of daily life around our Countries and around the World appear to be continuing to work, is because too many people still believe that the system they are living in and experiencing is beneficial to them in some way. We – that’s the people that this system is hurting – are actually the ones who are keeping this dying system alive right now!

SPOILER No.7: The collapse that is now underway will affect everyone. The Money-Based-System was built and perpetuated on greed that has benefitted the few at the cost of the many. Anyone – and that’s pretty much all of us – who has bought into the wealth-driven, money-is-god way of valuing everything in life, will be hurt as the material ‘things’ we believed to be important that it gave us – which it never really did – are taken away. No, not everyone will lose everything they ‘think’ they now have. But what is left after the collapse and the period of crisis is over, will be valued by us all in a very different and much healthier way. We have the opportunity and will think about life very differently to how we do now.

SPOILER No.8: The Money Based Order is OVER. We may not realise or even see it yet. But the Top-Down system has been on a downward trajectory for years and in reality, from the moment that the post-war pathway to globalisation began. The responses of Governments to Brexit, Covid and War in Ukraine – and now the resultant energy crisis too, have made it impossible for the Money-Based-Order (That’s the FIAT Money System) to be saved. That is why the collapse is now underway.

SPOILER No.9: We ALL have TWO CHOICES coming up. We ALL have the collective choice of becoming little more than caged animals, shackled with digital chains, kept happy with virtual reality and computer games in a world that revolves around an open secret which is our mass enslavement where existence will be about nothing more than making up the numbers for the few who believe that the world and everything in it was put here for them to own. The alternative choice WE ALL HAVE is to take back control of our own lives and rebuild society from the grassroots up, rebuilding and restoring a value set that revolves around the value of people, consideration for others and our whole environment before wealth or anything else, returning technology to its rightful place as our servant and money as the system of exchange it was always only supposed to be.

SPOILER 10: Your Community, Your Locality, The people you know and regularly see, is where the real power behind life for you and everyone around you should always be. By getting decisions in our localities right and stepping back from the dependence on systems and people who we do not know and will never ever see, we will return to a form of living and governance for us all that places true value upon everyone who takes part and is involved. Take care of what’s real first and the rest will follow!

WARNING: If you continue to live in fear of what people like those who represent the WEF are threatening, promising or arrogantly committing everyone too, that is exactly how the world you know will become.

THE OPPORTUNITY: No, we may not all be awake to what has happened and what is now happening and why life is now as it is. But the collapse and the effects and reach that it will have into the live of everyone will present a real choice for everyone.

THE TRAP: The risk is that too many will hear the promises made by people they should never again trust and take what sounds like the easy options and a route back to how things were for ‘everyone’ before. Unfortunately, there is no route back and the days of endless abundance and the selfishness and loss of integrity for us all that it has encouraged are no more. If you listen to that lie, you will discover too late that the freedoms you never really had but which you still covet are no more.

THE ENDGAME: Freedom of a kind that you have never really known starts in the mind. Pain and difficulty is now inevitable. The choice you have is whether you want to experience it so that someone else controls every part of yours and everyone else’s lives, or whether you take the leap of faith and trust the people you know and see everyday, and work together to make life better for everyone, beginning and getting it all right from the grassroots up.

Most of us already know deep down that the world as we have known it can no longer go on. The way we have been living has been completely unsustainable and we have placed our value for life on nothing but money and trinkets, whilst we have traded our integrity, our health, our happiness, our relationships and our humanity for nothing but thin air. It has been a very convincing lie!

Nothing is really free – whether we talk about how things are valued right now in terms of money, or how they should be in terms of thinking that really could be as simple as saying that ‘In life, you get back what you put in’.

Things are going to get very tough, very soon. The choice you have to make won’t be like voting, signing a form, buying something or agreeing to follow someone or something else. It will quite literally be about saying no to what appears to be more of or a continuation of all that you have known, and then to take the leap – with others – into what will only appear for a brief moment look like the unknown.

See you there!

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

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.

Expect the unexpected in so far as the coming collapse is concerned

If there is one elephant in the room that nobody wants to see or experience in the coming months and possibly the years beyond, it will be the depth and nature of the crisis which the collapse that is now underway involves.

To say that this is a willful blindness on the part of pretty much everyone would be wrong. It is instead much more to do with the reality that each and every one of us sees the world around us and everything that goes on within it in terms of what is important or relevant to us.

This view of the world that we all have is sometimes talked about as being a lens. Not only does a lens point at a very specific scene or picture, it can have filters added and be manipulated in all manner of other ways too.

It is from this perspective that without looking any further, all of us will already or will soon see the unfolding challenges that we all face coming into view. And that means that there is a very good chance that we are already missing, without realising avoiding, or simply bypassing real issues that don’t appear relevant to us because they do not feature within our current world view.

The people-centric, fair, balanced and values-based world that is ready and waiting, hidden in plain sight

Few may see it or even understand what it would mean for us all, but the alternative to this destructive and inhuman money and wealth-obsessed world exists and has always existed hidden in plain sight from us today.

The difference between the two worlds is surprisingly simple, but on its own would be perhaps the most challenging voluntary choice to make.

The choice for us is literally to reject the money and material wealth-based order, and to live a people-centric and values-based lifestyle in its place.

The change to a people-first order, isn’t about the rejection of money itself or even the latest forms of technology and advancements that we have; everything in a balanced and fair world still has its place.

The choice is about refocusing, returning and reforming our basic values set, so that we place value on only the ways of being and the experiences that should be valued, instead of placing value only on external ‘things’.

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.

The Tipping Point of the coming Economic & Systemic Crash

Whilst a systemic and financial collapse may not appear to be or have the stop-start feel that the ending of one system that will have to be replaced by another suggests, the reality we face is that for what may only be a short period of time, none of the currencies we use either in physical or digital form, will have any value when it comes to being able to secure anything that we need to buy or survive.

Despite what your immediate thoughts might be after reading that we might find ourselves having to function without any form of money for a period of time, it is within or as part of the collapse of the financial part of the current system where the seedbed of the greatest opportunity for getting everything right for our future exists.

When boiled down to the purest elements or the nuts and bolts of what the current Top-Down hierarchical system really is, it is all about the belief that everything we do or that we can achieve in life is based on money and the accumulation of material wealth, and the power and influence that supposedly goes with it.

At the point when circumstances and practicality tell us through our experience, that this belief, idea, principle, motivation – or whatever you want to call it, no longer works, we will have reached a seminal moment when the light can shine through on the darkness of our current reality, and our true values and understanding of what life is and how it should really be will have an open door to changing life for the better for us all.

I’m not trying to make light of what happens when the world we know that runs on money in every way, simply stops functioning because money doesn’t work anymore.

It will be hard. In fact, it will be very hard. But adversity really is the mother of invention, and it is at this point that we have the opportunity at local, community level to establish a new True Economy, based on Local Market Exchanges, that will feed into and provide the basis of how our entire new system of governance works.

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.

A Systemic and Financial Collapse is now inevitable, but a Great Reset as the WEF see it is not. We can define our own future, but it means doing politics like we have never done democracy before

If you have taken a close, objective view of every part of the Government response to the Covid Pandemic, you will see just how much power and influence can be brought to bear on normal people, by politicians and government officers when they want to use manipulation to bend people to their will.

With months passed since the end of Social Distancing measures, there are still many people who believe everything they were told about the risks of Covid. So much so, that they continue to allow fear of the virus to dictate how they live their lives when there is no need to do so.

Do consider your own experience of how messages from the Government and the Establishment were used to control the public in a situation that existed purely because the politicians we have are incompetent, were afraid, and thought that control was the only way they could lead.

The fear of politicians on all sides of Politics drove the Government response. It directly led to them making decision after decision that has contributed to the cost-of-living crisis we are fast descending into now, along with the inevitable financial and systemic collapse that is on its way.

The unavoidable collapse we are facing was supercharged by the Government response to Covid. But it has also been pushed massively by the response to the War in Ukraine and by Brexit before.

The Government responses to all three of these world-influencing events have catalysed the coming collapse. None of them alone or together were the actual cause.

The cause of the coming collapse are the ideals that have driven the way that everything around us has worked and has been governed for decades.

The entire Top-Down system has always been about putting the interests of those at the top first in all circumstances. Only lip service has ever paid to the problems that a greed-driven hierarchical structure inevitably causes for everyone else, and ever since the Gold Standard was abandoned and FIAT money was adopted in its place in 1971, it was inevitable that the piggies at the trough would keep going further and further with the aim of accumulating as much wealth as they can.

The people who have been controlling and driving the system that has enriched them at our collective cost, know only too well that the system of governance they influenced into being and developed always had a terminal flaw.

The flaw in this darkest chapter of a self-interest and greed-driven system was the inevitable growth of income inequality and with it, the rich – poor divide.  

Those of their number who have been clever enough to come up for air, knew that in time, the mechanics of their self-serving system would push that divide too far. That through a systemic collapse that would likely involve complete societal breakdown, their system as it stood would meet its end.

The people responsible are the world elites. They come together in organisations that we know of such as the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). So-called Public Bodies that have become the sanitised or ‘acceptable’ face of everything their self-interest is really all about.

They have known for many years that their system and the way that it functions would come to its end. But in the same way that Government rolled out its narrative to control all of us during the Covid Pandemic, the Worlds elites have been developing narrative about ‘The Great Reset’ to establish the idea in the public consciousness that their control both through and beyond the collapse that they created, is already a done deal or an inevitable thing.

But the elites never banked on Brexit, Covid or Ukraine. They certainly didn’t factor in the knee jerk way that governments such as ours would react, looking to the creation of non-existent money to solve all the problems that they faced, in the very unimaginative and unnecessary ways that they did.

The alarm bells started ringing just as soon as the Covid Virus emerged. They went into a frenzy once Government responses to the Pandemic and the Lockdowns began.

Those at the top knew they were out of time. That is why the amount of propaganda being pumped out of Switzerland began flowing at what feels like a constant rate.

The elites have always known what is coming. It was always just the question of when and not if.

The elites know what a systemic collapse will mean.

The elites know that the only way that they have any chance of remaining at the top is by creating leverage through systems of societal control that are aimed to maintain their position throughout the collapse, so that they can then ensure they dictate the ‘resetting’ of everything so that they maintain the Top-Down structure within the new world that follows beyond.

However, the elites also know that the power they have to succeed in their aims comes down to everything that we already know and that we continue to believe.

Right now, all the things that the WEF and mouthpiece Klaus Schwab have talked about really could happen. Not because anything they have planned is inevitable. But because we could easily miss the opportunity to take control of what happens during the collapse and The Great Reset, and because we fail to make the Great Reset (or whatever you are comfortable calling it) our own.

Everyone in power today, is tied into the Top-Down hierarchy that swirls around and fuels the whole system that tips its hat to the worlds elites.

Many of our Politicians don’t even know what they are doing or what they are really doing it all for. Pretty much everyone and everything is coin operated at the top!

There is no original thinking. No real leadership. And worst of all, no care or consideration for the lives of real people driving this Country – as in a democracy there always should be.

Today normal people are nothing but playthings at best. Slaves within a financial or wealth-related prison at worst.

For many, whole lifetimes revolve around an unnecessary fight just to be able to live.

Many of us do see the wrongs of what is happening, even if we don’t really understand why. Some of us even know who are to blame, but see it as a conspiracy, rather than being the result of the way that any small minded and selfish person would behave if they had the same wealth, opportunities and power that these very self-obsessed people have, and wanted to maintain all of it at any cost.

The existential risk to our future – as we face challenges that none of us have ever experienced – is that we will keep falling back on the same people and the same ideas to try and change things, in the very same ways that we have always done before.

Instead of accepting that we must all embrace a very new way of doing politics that puts people first and functions from the grassroots-up, we are in danger of falling back on what feels comfortable, relying on personalities, individuals with a loud voice or anyone who promotes a message that suggests the same as we’ve always had before: Only they know how to lead. Only they know what’s best. Only they and their own set of special chums have the secret formula for success in a system that has already closed its doors to them.

Approaching political change with the tried and tested formulas that have always failed to break into or influence our political system before.

Doing so again will only help maintain positions for the same self-interested politicians we already have in power or waiting to bask in it – whether they are Left, Right, Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat, or are motivated just the same with a different name.

There are many false prophets who are talking up change to us today. But they are quietly linking up with the same old faces, the same old stories and the same old motives as all the people who have wronged us have done so before.

The more obvious are groups like Tony Blair’s ‘The Britain Project’. But then there are many others like those who missed the realities of single-issue politics who have been left over from the Brexit movement too.

What they share in common is a hope that they can become some kind of phoenix that emerges from the ashes of an already broken system, that will work better once they lead it. They are unaware that their current behaviour and outlook amounts to little more than the same sum total as the motives of the ‘leadership’ we have already got.

However well intended any of them might look, their motivations and failure to connect with real people or even read the room will only help to make the strategies of the WEF and those around it all the more secure.

This isn’t to say that none of them have anything to offer us. It is simply the case that no public representative will be putting any of our needs first, if the system they work within and benefit from is based on ‘Top-Down’.

If you really want to experience the genuine freedom that only independence from a system of governance based on material wealth can bring – before the opportunity is lost, you MUST embrace your own Power first.

Now is the time to collaborate and contribute to your community with everything you have the ability to give.

Everyone is waiting for someone else to come up with a plan. But the plan we are on the arse end of right now, was someone else’s plan too.

If we don’t come together and make a new grassroots/up, community-based form of politics and system of governance work, the somebody else will do it for us.

The WEF and the Worlds elites will continue to live gilded lives. But their ever-increasing fear of what will happen when enough of us do wake up to the myths they have created, will drive them to use every form of new technology they can in order to increasingly control our lives.

If you think that life is shit now. Wait and see how you feel about everything then.

We are approaching the crossroads and the way out will soon be here.

But there is no easy option when it comes to the road to real change.

A fair and balanced system of governance that works for and on behalf of everyone is not the easy road.

What works for everyone fairly will not be represented by anyone or anything that feels familiar, makes feel comfortable, or makes you feel like you are the one on top before even the slightest amount of work has been done.

A happy future is about having faith in yourself, the people immediately around you and taking a massive leap into what appears to be the great unknown.

Are you ready to embrace and take yours?

The Basic Living Standard Wage (BLSW)| All Businesses & Industries must back-work or redefine their prices based on providing the BLSW to their lowest paid employees

In Levelling Level, we used the term ‘The Great Correction’ as a way of describing the ‘reset’, ‘restart’ or complete flipping of the system in which we are now beginning to engage. For practical reasons and so that it is relatable, we have increasingly referred to this process as ‘The Great Reset’ – simply because the world Elites and World Economic Forum have been building a narrative around this term and it is vital that we all recognise that ownership of this process of change and the future beyond it is ours. It is not theirs.

Calling the process The Great Correction, is likely to prove to be the most accurate term, as whatever is done or however we look at it, unless the world is completely destroyed, there will be restarts, reestablishment and resets of everything at all levels. Everything will be corrected so that it works fairly and in a balanced way – as it always should.

With the collapse of the current system taking place like a series of falling dominoes, where one is knocked and then they all follow, it may perhaps seem strange that the reconstruction process that will create our new world, will happen or be set in motion in a very similar way.

It is the adoption of The Basic Living Standard and with it, The Basic Living Standard Wage that will be the first principle that must be adopted. Adoption of the Basic Living Standard Wage will serve to be the first domino that knocks over all the others that need to fall into place so that the Basic Living Standard becomes the benchmark for all.

Our system of governance only has to adopt and get the framework that guarantees The Basic Living Standard right, to set off the process that will ensure that it works and operates in every way that it should.

Once the Basic Living Standard becomes the principle upon which all rules and laws governing business and finance are based, all activities will then realign away from profit to people.

The transition from the Global FIAT Money Economy to The Localised True Economy ‘Exchange’

When the money that we have and use has lost its perceived value – as it is almost certain that it now will, the most orderly transition we could have to The True Economy and our new ‘post Top-Down world’ will not be possible until we leave the money and currencies we have behind and recognise their true value – which is nothing.

Yes, in time we will need to reestablish currency as a practical means of exchange. These new currencies might even still be called $Dollars or £Pounds.

However, we cannot create and develop the True Economy and ensure that the governance is agreed and secured that will ensure we always attribute value to everything in the way that we should, unless we recognise what the priorities dictated by genuine need really are first.

To bring an ordered system that works for all using money as a medium, we have to remember, recall and reinstate the basics of that order before we do.

The process begins first by recognising that money no longer works. It then continues by accepting that to survive and thrive, we must have a system of exchange at least temporarily in its place.

The end of the money system for many will come in the form of a crisis or critical point that they will recognise when they don’t have enough money to secure the basics that are essential to life.

Others will have to be big enough to recognise that the game is quite literally up, and that they can make a positive contribution to change, before avoidable circumstances finally give them an unwelcome push too.

Survival during this period of crisis and transition from the old system to the new, will rely on exchanging whatever we have, or we can offer to others, to secure whatever we need in return.

When we were children, and we swapped sticker cards, sweets, marbles or anything else we no longer needed but might want to exchange for something that we did, the stakes were no higher than the emotional value that you attribute to either. A process which may not have felt like it, but was nonetheless very much under our own control.

When we are faced with the realities of swapping or exchanging anything that we have so that we or the people we care or are responsible for can continue to have the basic foods and goods that are essential to survive and live, the stakes will not feel like they could be higher. For many the emotional entrenchment of that process will reach to the sky.

It is inevitable that bartering and exchange will take place between individuals as reality begins to hit all of us very hard.

However, one-to-one transactions in these circumstances are likely to lead to greater levels of frustration, anger and violence than necessary.

The best way to address social issues in the community quickly and effectively will be to establish a non-monetary Local Market Exchange – that will also form the basis upon which The True Economy can begin.

A True Economy is founded on value that each person contributes to it, partnered by the raw materials and resources that the world and environment gifts us

We have sadly all been drawn into an interpretation of life where money and the wealth that it appears to give us is considered to now be the benchmark or reference point for everything.

We literally value money to the point where it has not only become a thing in its own right, it has become the defacto god or deity that rules each and every part of our lives.

Today, we look upon others in terms of what they have, what status they hold, what they earn and what capacity they have to earn.

Yet the intrinsic value of money is nothing.

Money is worth zero.

Money is a unit of exchange and nothing more.

It is simply a change in our beliefs that has allowed the value of money to take over our lives in this way.

What we not only fail to realise, but have actually forgotten, is that the real point of value in anything is its beginning or its foundation. What it was built on or built with.

The true value of anything is not even the end product, or whatever the parts, inputs or elements of any constructive process add up to – or what things become.

People, or each and every human being on the planet are the basic elements or building blocks of The True Economy.

It is the Labour, Time, Skills and Experience of PEOPLE that add value, through process, to the raw materials and resources that we take from the world.

Surviving The Great Reset | The New Economy | Where we are right now | The Money system we have is going to collapse

Perhaps the biggest change that we face in the coming years and months, is that which will accompany the collapse of the money or currencies that we are used to, along with the system or rules that underpin every part of it, the way it functions and the way it can be manipulated by those ‘in the know’.

‘What would we do without money’ is a valid question. But it also reflects the situation and circumstances that we have been in for a long time. One where money has become the reference tool for just about everything – and regrettably for some, the way that we have started to value life itself.

There is no part of the monetary system that we have and use today, that hasn’t been broken and redefined to serve the self-interest and greed of people who have had the power, influence and ability to manipulate the monetary system in some way.

There is a natural order to everything. So even though it may take decades to happen, any system that is willfully created and manipulated to serve the interests of a few at the cost of the many will always meet its end.

Every ecosystem has a point of balance and when that point of balance is out, the balance must be restored – either by the inhabitants doing the right and respectful thing, or when they refuse to do so, by the system itself breaking and coming to its end through collapse.

This is where we are now.

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’.

This broken system that is hurting us all, has a name: It’s called ‘Top-Down’

If you want to live in a different kind of world, where everyone is valued for who they really are and not what they have or what they can afford, it’s important to recognise what the building blocks that will make that world real will look like.

It’s also very important to recognise what represents the key tenets and elements of the old world, and the thinking that will keep the majority disadvantaged in some way, whilst benefits of every kind continue to be funneled towards those either at or very near the very top.

The system that we have and that we are in the process of leaving, functions with people in positions of power and responsibility for the lives of others. People who believe that they are special and behave as if they are special in some way.

It doesn’t matter what the behaviour, skill or attribute might be that makes them believe they are special, whether its knowledge, popularity, position or wealth. If any person of group of people who have influence over or responsibility for others believe that they are different and better than those other people in any way, the system that they are influencing will always be about them and never about anyone else.

The people with power and influence who consider themselves above others, look down on everyone that they believe they have that power or influence over. This is the very basic mechanics of the system of ‘Top-Down’.

In its broader sense, ‘Top-Down’ is a hierarchical system. Power is always funneled from the many to the few above them. Then from the few to the one or two that are then above.

The process can and does repeat itself over and over again and often resembles the shape of a pyramid.

It’s a relationship that thrives on the creation of distance. Because those with power we are in direct contact with and easily able to access in a way where they listen, are often much further away from those that they themselves are subservient to. This means that those who we should most be able to rely on to do what’s best for us rarely even understand the rules, diktats and instructions that come from their own hierarchy ‘above’.

You will recognise those who are beholden to the ‘Top-Down’ system, because they are always better in some way than us. They thrive on peddling the myth that there are those ‘in the know’ and that they have special skills or special knowledge. When in fact all their ‘position’ or ‘role’ does is give them an excuse to avoid truth or avoid make decisions based solely in the moment and on doing only what is right for everyone – not just their masters or themselves.

Question the integrity and values of anyone who presents themselves as a leader at any level, who has come from management within a large company or corporate structure, has been in a leadership role within community organisations or within local councils, or has been a politician and member of one of the well-known parties and not demonstrated an ability once elected, to stand out without their party on their own.

Beware the people who have said a few things that have struck chords with some people and given them what appears to be great popularity. Popularity and leadership skills in the untested are usually two very distant things.

Above all, be on your guard against anyone who tells you they have knowledge and networks but cannot give a credible and open overview of what they are or how they attained them. Run a mile from anyone whose credibility as a leader rests purely on a name or who they are directly linked as nepotism is one of the most insidiously destructive and corrupt elements of the Top-Down system by far.
