David Suzuki at Occupy

To his credit, David Suzuki did identify nature as the pre-established template for economic sanity. He pointed out that nature doesn’t adhere to man-made concepts in fulfilling it’s cycles of health and well being, and if something isn’t working we can and must change it. However David Suzuki’s address at Occupy Vancouver fell short of a solution in that, I’m sorry, but the circulation of money has never contributed to our problems, on the contrary. No generation can be blamed for spending too much, not even if baby boomers presented a convenient scapegoat for the one percent. The call to younger generations by David Suzuki to lower their sights, spend less and save more with a goodly sprinkle of altruism, is propagation of exactly the same self sacrificing scarcity mentality that’s brought about this historical moment of planetary crisis.

To say that we should only have what we need, not what we want, is simply not enough for human beings to fulfil their potential. When we hold the belief that everything is scarce, we must continue to produce more and more out of fear just to make money – EVEN IF WE DON’T WANT IT AND IT’S HARMFUL TO US. So it’s this unsustainable way in which we’ve made money, and how money has been put into circulation as debt only, to allow the one percent to get something (just about everything) for nothing, which ultimately blocks unrestricted distribution of wealth. The bare essentials of survival may work for lower animals, however the moment increase stops in our lives, death and dissolution immediately set in.

To be fully human we must also have the freedom to determine our destiny and explore, discover and fulfill the dreams in our hearts; order without freedom is pointless. Evolution has provided for every human being to have everything we want. We live in a world of absolute abundance, there’s no need for repression. There’s enough wealth on this planet for everyone to have as many yachts as they want if that’s what we really want, but as things stand stagnant, symbolic of status, right now most people who own a yacht don’t ever hardly use it. (No one ever tells a tree to stop growing, it balances itself out. No one ever has to tell another species to control it’s population, it balances itself out. If we remember that we can all have what we want, there are too many yachts because only people who really loved yachting would own one, for a buzz of activity dockside.)

Unless you can use it for increase in your life, don’t plunder for the sake of status of ownership. Every room in the White House is used for example, but building a 35 thousand square foot mansion for two people who don’t actually use all the space except maybe once or twice a year for a party, is a problem because the resources aren’t being used for anyone’s increase. If every person who has 50 cars sitting in their garage, donated a Mazaradi or Ferrari to Zipcar, the shared-vehicle industry would explode. Driving a Lambourghini once or twice may be all that a lot of people want to experience, since it would give enough increase to move forward. Each time we experience an increase, it opens the door for more increase.

Restricting the possibilities of increase by corporately-funded policies eventually forces people into corner where the only option left is to Occupy public space. In my research I have found that some of the most brilliant young minds have staked their claim on democracy at Occupy Vancouver. The freedom stake-out community is constantly in committee developing and innovating; it’s an example of living democracy in action where the collective intelligence increases with a process where every voice can be heard independently. They’re attempting to define a method whereby what we choose. we choose together, consciously. Fortunately people have reached a level of evolution that they can achieve change peacefully without violence, as we saw in the Middle East when a government was overthrown by an internal commitment to unity in the hearts of it’s people.

No Money in Selling Solutions

Not a real solution that solves a problem for good. It doesn’t fit our economic model. Bic has sold a lot more ball point pens since they started making them to skip; everyone thinks that a new Bic will work better. Repeat business is generated by partial solutions, teasers, quality impairment, built-in obsolescence, and even outright problem generation. We have no option, we have to make money; and once you provide a solution there’s no more money in it. It’s the root cause of the improper distribution of wealth.

It’s not that the solutions aren’t there, waiting in the wings. When we run out of oil, rest assured the oil companies will by then own all alternative energy sources, and our supply of energy won’t skip a beat. That’s if we’ve survived the environmental crisis. If the pharmaceutical companies can’t find a market for a new drug, they invent a disease and then promote the “cure”. Until someone wants a real health solution, they’ll keep buying the fake… then they don’t have to face fear of failure, they already know deep down it won’t work and have something to blame it on.

No, solutions are way too threatening, and no investor would touch them with a ten foot pole. Sooner or later though, if you’re like me, you start to look for real time solutions in the spirit of self reliance. Good health is the foundation of life, without it there’s no self sufficiency in terms of performance and enjoyment of life, not only in our senior years, but right now. Dropping by your local gym for some one on one with a personal trainer starts to sound better and better when you think of the alternative, doesn’t it?
