So there is another year gone by and we are celebrating New Year 2012. According to tradition we will be drinking glass of champagne and wishing people around us “Happy New Year”.
I want to focus here on a simple statement “happy new year”. I don't know if you have ever tried to analyse this simple statement. Have you ever asked yourself why are you saying these words ? Have you ever asked yourself what is the meaning of it all ? People somehow say it automatically. The clock ticks 12 o'clock, the fireworks go off, people drink champagne or sparkling wine and they say to everybody around them “happy new year”. And we repeated the same process of celebrating new year and wishing everybody happiness every 12 months.
Thus let’s have a look at the statement “happy new year” closely. We wish somebody that the forthcoming year is happy for them - full of happiness and only the best things happen to them.
But doesn't have any impact on a person's life ?
Is the person receiving the wish really happy the whole year ?
Are we really happy?
Look at this world. Does humanity live in happiness? The answer is no. If you questioned this answer that means that you are completely blind because you don't see all the suffering that is going on in this world, you don't see that 1 billion people starve, you don’t see the wars, you don't see the crime, you don't see the abuse, manipulation, corruption, prostitution, rape et cetera.
Thus I would like to ask the question. What is the purpose of celebrating new year and wishing other people happy new year if this has no meaning, no significance, no influence on others life ? It doesn't change anything.
The statement “happy new year” is similar to word “love”. We say it but most of the time these are just empty words. If you love somebody show it in your actions. And then you can express it also in words. But as a matter of fact if you show that you love somebody in action then you don’t need to use the words “I love you !” anymore. Only if you're actions equal to the words coming out of your mouth they have a real meaning.
And the same is with wishing somebody happy new year. These words are empty. Are you going to do something to show in real actions that you really wish somebody happy new year ? Are you going to make something that other people are really happy in the next year ? Most probably not. You will recover from the hangover the next day and you will go back to your daily routine trying to survive and cope with your own problems. You forget that you wished somebody happy new year until next December 31.
I ask you to do something different this year. Do something in real life, show with your actions that you really wish somebody happy new year. Show that your words are equal to your actions and you really make others happy. I guarantee you that if you make others happy you will also be happy.
If you don't know how to make other people happy I will give you some ideas. Always do what is best for all and with this one you will never fail. Also Equal Money System is something that will make other people happy - and not only few people in your surrounding but the whole world, all people. Thus by supporting it and helping to implement it as soon as possible we will be really happy. Join us at Desteni Group and show with your actions that you really wish others happy new year.
P.S. Wishing somebody happy new year is used by people to suppress their guilt that they have inside of them because they haven't done anything in real action, in real life to make something to make others happy. Thus we wish that something or somebody makes miraculously other people's life happy. You state to yourself that you are not able to do anything to make other people’s life happy, you give up on yourself and you leave it up to something or somebody outside of you to make somebody else's life happy. You wash off your hands, and give up the responsibility to somebody else outside of you. You say the words happy new year to cover up and suppress the guilt that you have inside of you. You say it automatically and you don’t even ask yourself a question why you do it. You drink champagne because alcohol helps also to suppress the voice of guilt inside of you.
You will never find in happiness this way. And the same with all the people to whom you wish happy new year. They will never be happy just because you wish it for them. This is all empty and meaningless.

Do you really want to ?
Are you happy when you do it ?
Are you obliged to do it ?
What would other people think of you if you didn’t do the birthday party ?
What would other people think of you if you didn’t buy a present to somebody else ?
We are being obliged to give a present.
We are being obliged to be happy when receiving the present even though we don’t like them.
We are being obliged to treat somebody special on that day.
We are being obliged to be happy on that day.
We are spending incredible amount of money on presents and making special celebrations and quite often we are obliged to do it.
We are making expensive army parades ( show off ) to celebrate something.
We are celebrating wars and treat specially heroes of wars even though we know that they were killing other people. We don’t know all the details about the soldiers, what and how they did during the war but we treat them as heroes. They are the ones who are responsible for killing many people ( mass murderers ). They should go to jail or being executed themselves ? Maybe they didn’t want to be heroes ? Maybe they were forced to do it or otherwise they would go to jail or be executed if they didn’t listen to orders of their general. Why do we celebrate killing of other people ( wars ) ?
Mother’s and father’s day – we should treat them and make them feel really special on that day. But what about the rest of the year ?
Christians are celebrating Christmas every year ( birthday of Jesus ). Does it change anything ?
How much money and time is being wasted on buying meaningless presents and celebrations that don’t make any change in the world ?
Do you really celebrate that special day ? Or are you rather happy because you don’t have to go to work ?
Why don’t you celebrate life ?
4 th of July Independence Day in America ? How many innocent people had to be killed to celebrate that special day ? Is it really something to celebrate ? There are many people in America who have no idea why they are celebrating 4th of July ? They are just following the crowd and are happy that they don’t have to go to work.
Why do we celebrate and wish everybody happy new year ? Are you really happy all year thanks to the celebrations and all the wishes of your friends and strangers ? Why do we leave tones of rubbish and broken glass bottles on the street when you celebrate new year.
Why do we drink champagne to celebrate new year ? Does it really make you happy ?
Special days become for many just another occasion to get drunk.
Are you afraid to stop celebrations of your birthday and other special days ?
Do you think that starving children are getting more food on their birthday ?
Do you think homeless people are being treated special on their birthday ?
Do you think Jesus is happy on his birthday ( Christmas day )? There are so many people who celebrate it for him !
Why do we celebrate something that happened in the past many years or centuries ago ?
Do you realize that with all the money that we spend on meaningless presents we could buy food for many starving people ?
Why do we cut ( kill ) so many trees to celebrate Christmas ? Do you think Jesus would be happy about it ?
Why do you celebrate your boss’s birthday if in reality you hate him / her and in your head and your thoughts you wish him the worst ?
A lot of celebrations are intentionally popularized, marketed and commercialized by capitalists because this is just another way of making more money. So why do you allow yourself to be manipulated by them ?
How will all of it change in Equal Money System ?
Well… there will be no more money factor in deciding on celebrating something. We will be free in deciding on what and when to celebrate. Apart from this the whole concept of equal money is based on “love thy neighbor as thyself and doing what is best for all”. Thus something like cutting thousands of trees for Christmas will no more be accepted and this will not be celebrated anymore. The same will be with celebrating "Tomatina" in Spain when people do tomatoes fight throwing them at each other. They are wasting so much food and money while there are many people starving to death. Every celebration that we have today and is not in the best interest of all, will be stopped.
Apart from this people will be realizing and learning more and more how to respect and love each other every day and in every moment. And once you love and respect everybody else in every moment then you realize for yourself that we don’t need to make one special day in a year when we will try to respect somebody because we should. Every moment and every breath will be celebration and this will be a celebration of life. And you will see for yourself that this kind of celebration will give you more joy then any of the celebrations that we have today.

[pol-i-tish-uh n] Show IPA
1. a person who is active in party politics.
2. a seeker or holder of public office, who is more concerned about winning favor or retaining power than about maintaining principles.
3. a person who holds a political office.
4. a person skilled in political government or administration; statesman or stateswoman.
5. an expert in politics or political government.
Unfortunately this is the sad truth about our politicians. We all know what they are supposed to do. They should be of service to people who voted for them and represent their interests in parliament. But this is not happening. Being a politician in our current system means that you have a well paid job, you dedicate relatively small amount of time to do it, you build up connections with other people who are in power, which puts you also in the position of power and allows you to take advantage of many opportunities to make even more money etc.
Thus we could easily say that being a politician is one of the best jobs in our current system. It gives you power and money, which - together with sex - they are the most desirable things for majority of humans. And to get those most desirable things people are ready to do almost anything. Thus there should be no surprise that politicians lie and give us false promises before the elections so that we vote for them. Once they are being elected and sit in their new and beautiful office they say: “It is impossible to change anything anyway ! …so why should care ? At least I make most out of it for myself”.
Of course we can not classify every politician like this. There are also people who genuinely want to make the change. But they are a minority and their chances of changing anything are usually very little.
Will this change in the Equal Money System ?
Yes, it will. There will be no more politicians because the whole system will be governed differently. The best solution will be to have an administration – not a government – to oversee the working of the system. The system should be largely automated, so as to diminish any opportunities for abuse. The administration will be replaced with an entirely new administration yearly – based on majority vote from the people, whereby one can ‘be in the office’ only once and then never again.
Specific training programs will be set up to teach people the necessary skills to perform such a task – where the test will be if the person develops the skill on the one hand, but more importantly: if the person can be trusted with such a responsibility – to always act in a way that is best for all.
Note that our current leaders don’t require to be tested on their integrity to be able to go for the office – the one who is able to best deceive everyone will generally win an election, which is why this world has never changed. And as I said before people become politicians because they want power and money. In EMS money will have completely different function ( the purpose of it is to make sure there is equal access for all to basic living-resources. ) and nobody will be able to gain power through money. Thus nobody will be motivated to become a politician / administrator because of it. In an Equal Money System such forms of abuse will no longer be possible.
The era of liars and deceivers ( politicians ) will be over in EMS.

Let’s analyze some points related to money, relationship and divorce in our current system.
1. Some ( or rather many ) people are motivated and decide on the relationship because of money. Thus most of the relationships that start in this way will last only as long as the money lasts. And once there is a shortage of money there is nothing else that would keep them together. There is nothing to motivate them to work and solve the problems that are in front of them. Of course those people fall in love in the beginning, they say all those beautiful words “I love”, “I cannot live without you”, “I want to marry you and live with you for the rest of my life”. But usually that is only short lasting energetic burst called “falling in love” and sooner or later it will disappear. If you asked them for honest answer they would almost always say that in the back of their mind ( backchat ), they had the thoughts about the money and this was a motivating factor in making decision about the relationship. I am not judging anybody about it. I am just pointing out that there are many people who make decisions about relationships in this way and thus in majority of cases it will end up in failure. Many couples don’t divorce officially and live together for the rest of their life but in reality their whole relationship is a farce, is empty and meaningless. And it is also very common that one of the partners or even both of them have other relationships on the side. All of this is a consequence of lack of money, which motivated people to get into relationship.
2. Lack of money generates fear of survival, a lot of stress and many other secondary problems, which affect negatively the whole relationship, leading eventually to divorce.
- Necessity to work long hours means that people cannot dedicate their time to their partners and spend time having fun and doing things they love to do. The whole relationship becomes boring and quite often people start to look for other partners who have more money. And this becomes closed circle ( look point 1 ).
- Inability to cope with difficult financial situation leads people into state of helplessness, giving up and addictions, which eventually will also lead to divorce.
- Stress related to lack of money will also affect both partners. It is very common that those partners will have more fights and disputes which with the time lead to the failure of the relationship.
Divorces will not stop completely in Equal Money System. But the number of them will be much lesser. And definitely there will be no more divorces caused because of the lack of money. Join us at Desteni and start to implement the EMS. The sooner we do it, the better agreements we will have. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live like this ?
