    It comes to mind that the old system and its followers are much like a chicken with its head cut off (sorry Mr. Chicken… just an example), we could well say that the increase in apparent life in that chicken proves it will never die ! We just know better than that.

    Yes self destructive tendencies will only destroy the motivations to continue them where ever they yet remain, even in the face of so many wise and culpable solutions which, have a very clear path before them !

    Do you actually know what Jesus Christ really fought for and why he was crossed?
    Not because the Jew demanded it, no that is a forged story by Romans. And in fact utterly out of sense and reasoning.
    Jesus said to stop the criminal trade, money and property system as it goes against all principals of life when he stormed into the house of trades. And made it quite clear that what they are doing is plain and simply criminal!

    Only a participation system can stand where we organize and live together for the goal.
    He was crucified for that, his Jew brothers try to save him from the Romans but the Romans made an example of Jesus quickly without even a trial and crussified him with a vine on his head showing to all slaves that their liberator is no other than a simple man who later they plundged a spear into his heart after spiking him on the cross. They had to make sure he was dead because he was politically correct, a free men cannot be bribed, only if you enslave them and ask them to pay for some freedom than you can make the trade system alive.
    The Romans afterwards nearly genocided all the Jews to make sure no other Jews will come and question their criminal rule. Soon Paulus made it clear that the death of Jesus shows that death is not the end so slaves were not that obedient anymore so the Romans thought taking over the belief is the best thing to do so we have spiritual control that way they have more power against slaves.
    And so they change their senate into cardinals and their emperor into a Pope.
    The cross is a symbol of oppression to show to all people who goes against the roman system will end up like this. And that is why they call the one that will end their rule the anti-christ, but in fact they are the evil ruling and causing famine, war, chaos, mayhem around the world.
    Christians = Romans
    They made also sure that Jews will be blamed forever for the death of Jesus while clearly they are the ones who killed and decided to kill him. The end of days is the end of the criminal roman trade, money, and property system.

    And than the Messiah will rise and bring peace to the world and harmony and the system that should be used all this time.

    The End of the Catholic Church and their rule is near. All people who truly believe in Jesus will follow the messiah all those who are not faithful will follow the Roman Christians = Catholics. End of days is the end of this horrible criminal system that is the trade, money and property system. I will make sure of it! … Keep reading

    Thought Experiment—- A factory with 1,000 workers and an owner. New tech allows things to be twice as efficient.
    Scenario 1 – The owner fires half the work force.
    Scenario 2 – The workers, having invested retirement savings in stock in their company, take over with a strong union and keep all jobs – but everyone only needs to work 4 hours a day due to the technology.
    Which happens? Why?

    the worst thing about all these presentations is that its largely the same few people who watch this and support this.

    if you can get movement for this from the rest of the world.while america will be the last one to implement this. but the easisets " resources" wise to make it happen.

    why not appeal to Asia and African countries to try and make these changes. Eastern europe as well.

    I feel like you it would be much easier to get supporters in countries that most easily experience the consequences of the market economy daily.

  • gninja92

    very good point but he needs to describe "for the truly stupid" what exactly "designed to last is" and give famous examples of companies that di the oppositte i.e. Apple is the single biggest offendor in that category

    Like a scrotum, here it is in a nutshell. Watch it, share it, and explore it from top to bottom. Don't worry, it won't hurt you. But it will change you. In the best way you could ever imagine. The world I live in today is so vastly different from what it was before Joseph, Fresco, or Gamble. But it's a world that is so much closer to reality. Because while there is only ONE reality that we all must share, we can live in all kinds of different worlds. The world presented in this, an other similar presentations, is the world I always knew I wanted to live in, but didn't know how to get there. We can't change our outsides until we change our insides (mind). Then we, small in numbers, but growing, can make anything happen.

    "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world;
    indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
    — Margaret Mead, anthropologist
