But the reality is as follows. You are here and now. And you need money to survive. And neither God nor government will give you the money. You will be left alone. There are many who are hoping that this will never happen to them. But there are also many who used to hope like this and now they are on the street struggling to survive. The difference is that before they were in a position to do something to prevent it and they have missed this opportunity because they hoped and believed naively that they will be spared from misfortune. And now almost all of their energy and time is being spent on trying to find ways to survive on the street. And they are almost incapable to change anything anymore unless they stabilize themselves again within the current system and where they have income to cover at least their basic needs. Do you really need to go through this process and unnecessary struggle and suffering before you fully comprehend what I am talking about and then you will make decision to start changing things ? You choose your future.
Thus I suggest to you. If you are now in a position and capable of doing something to prevent this from happening then do it. Stop waiting, praying and hoping that this will never happen to you. Maybe this will not happen to you because you have so much money that you will be always able to buy yourself food and water no matter how much it cost.
But have you considered some other elements ? These people who have no money and are fighting for their survival are becoming desperate. And when people become desperate they have almost no moral values as you would expect them to have. They may come to you to steal your money. And when you oppose they will beat you up or maybe even kill you. And you should not be surprised by it. Most probably you would do the same if you were in their shoes.
Look… for example Colonel Muammar Gadaffi in Libya. He was in control of billions of dollars, he had enormous army to protect him. But all of this did not save him from the desperate people. Eventually he was shot with the bullet from the gun of a desperate person. And we have even seen it on TV. Desperate people have no morals and when they are pressed by the fear of survival they will get anybody in this world and kill them.
Before this happened Gadaffi was in a position to make a change in his country and maybe even in the world. He had resources and power to create different economic system which would take care of all the people in his country. He didn't do it. He missed the opportunity that he had. Today he is not here. He is dead. He cannot change anything anymore.
Of course we are talking here about the top figure - a leader of the country. But in reality this applies to every single human being who is in a position to make a change in this world before it is too late. You are not running the country but maybe you are the boss of your business. And you have some resources that you could direct into making the change. It is maybe not much but if there are more people like you then this “not much” will add to another “not much” and altogether we will have “a lot”. We will have a group that consists of individual human beings and as a group we will be able to act more effectively and we will have a bigger impact.
If you don't do anything now you never know what will happen with you. You may end up exactly the same like Gaddafi. Thus I suggest that you do something to prevent it. Do something to create a system where everybody will have enough money and resources to have a good life. Don't wait, don't hope, don’t pray. Do something practically.
Equal money system is a practical solution for humanity to deal with all the money problems that we have in today's world. The Basic Income Grant is an intermediate step towards it. Do something to implement it.
You may join us at Desteni Group. We are working already on implementation of Equal Money System.
P.S. Some of you think that Spain is in European Union and live here is a paradise. The reality is different. Once you run out of your unemployment benefits you have almost no support from the government. There are many people here from other European countries who have lived in Spain for many years paying their taxes. And sometimes we are talking about the figures of 500.000 € paid in taxes over the years. But today they have no money and they need help from the government. But they don't receive it at all or at least they don’t get it so easy. You have to go through extremely complicated process of bureaucracy, employees of the government offices are not helpful and as a matter of fact they have been given unofficial directives to cancel your right to receive help from unemployment office if you fail to meet all of their requirements even though they don’t make any sense at all.
And no surprise. Spanish government doesn't have money. They have a lot of debts. Thus they are not willing to help so easy. It doesn't matter that you are entitled to it and you deserve it. It doesn't matter that you have no money to provide for your family. The government doesn't have money and they don’t care. They have their own problems and they have to save the money somehow. And one of the way to save the money is to make it difficult for people to seek the help unemployment office. Life in Spain is not so easy even though this country is part of European Union.

About the author
There is something in me which tells me: ...this world is not as it should be... this world is not as it could be... And I have tried to change it: ...I have prayed...I have hoped...I have meditated...I have visualized...I have thought positively... And I have tried many other things and methods. But very little has changed. Now it is time to be more practical and more effective. Now I work on implementation of LIVING INCOME GUARANTEED.
