Making Poverty History: Bono and Geldof: Live 8 Concerts: What Is The Key?

Who is taking on Poverty ?

There were concerts done by Bono and Geldof for Making Poverty History
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_8



Bono met with some political figures to make them aware of what's happening in Africa

Bono also talked about Poverty when he talked at TED :

 “Forget the rock opera, forget the bombast, my usual tricks. The only thing singing today will be the facts.”
By becoming a “factivist,” we can learn what needs to be done to end extreme poverty within the next generation. And the facts are beyond promising. Since 2000:
  • Eight million AIDS patients have been receiving retroviral drugs
  • Malaria deaths have been cut in some countries by 75%
  • Child mortality rate of kids under 5 is down by 2.65 million deaths a year
  • Extreme poverty declined from 43% in 1990 to 33% in 2000 to 21% by 2010.
Extreme poverty has been cut in half in the last 20 years, and the facts show that we can get it to virtually zero within a generation — but only if we act.
This looks like it is going to solve poverty, but will it really?
Statistics can be rigged. 
We cannot trust statistics because it is being used to serve our self-interest.

So, when someone says poverty will be zero at a certain date, we have to investigate this claim if this is founded on real seeing and understanding of what's going on in this world - the real problem and not just dreaming about it based on a belief.

Who can we trust?

We can trust our stand from the starting point of 'what is best for all' realizing that that essentially will result to 'what is best for ourself'

But when our stand is clouded by the desire to win within the fear of losing in a casino world system of inequality, we have to forgive ourselves, and change our starting point
- look at the reason why we do what we do

We have to look at our starting point.
If we are trying/desiring to win in our campaign to end poverty, fear of losing is fueling it as desire and fear are like 2 poles of a magnet - just like hate and love - one cannot be without the other,  it becomes our starting point. 

What is fueling our desire to win this campaign against poverty is fear that poverty is going to be here and we are 'guilty' that we are living the good life and we are depriving the poor of their share.

This is not a true starting point.
The true starting point is standing within the principle of  'what is best for all'.
This means we have to look at what life is about and acknowledge that we are all birthed here in this one life, and within that, realize that we are Equals, and that we will not accept and allow inequality in our world. 
We have to walk as Equals denouncing the inequality in this world system. 
We have to forgive ourselves for accepting and allowing this world system of inequality.
We have to stand up and speak and assist in creating a world that truly honors life.as part of our self-correction.
When we correct our starting point from fear of losing (so desiring to win in our campaign), releasing that and changing our starting point to 'what is best for all', we are aligning our expression as who we really are, to life's expression.
Nature gives its resources to all of us equally and it is standing for what is best for all of us.
To not give others their share is a crime. 
Allowing Poverty in an unequal world system of money is a crime.
The Equal Life Foundation Bill of Rights Number 1 States that:
 An Equal Economic Right that insures that all financial needs are accessible and available to ensure that the fundamental requirements of a healthy and fulfilling life can be realized and manifested.

From: Living Income and Nationalized Resources 
For the idea of Basic Income that is currently being proposed by various groups around the world to work, one needs to look at the whole point of resources within countries and the most effective way to bring about a source that will be able to provide the monetary resources for a Basic Income for everyone – so that each one has got a basic level of dignity – would be to Nationalize all the Resources – whether it is mining or production within a country – to structure the products produced and the resources produced through a pricing structure that produces enough profit so that such money is specifically dedicated to pay a Basic Income to everyone in the country.
This is how the shareholder becomes the citizen and therefore the citizen benefits from the shareholding and the Basic Income becomes the way that the profit of the business is utilized to help everyone. Each one will be made aware of buying products from the very companies that are producing the income that will become the Basic Income Guaranteed. In this way, the Basic Income becomes possible, it is a form of socialism and it brings capitalism or the ownership principle of capitalism into a place where all citizens of the country become part of the basic capital, which is the basic resource that is then utilized for the benefit of all the citizens within the country.
This way the corporation = becomes government, the shareholder = the citizen, the profit = the Basic Income Guaranteed and you have financially sustainable basic solution to create integrity and to bring about the end of poverty within a country. From that perspective one can then develop business structures of competition, but there are certain things that are not part of competition: the human should not compete with each other to the extent where poverty is caused or where people are driven to starvation, or where people do not have homes or food – that is not competition, that is brutality and is completely unacceptable.

"I commit myself to show, that Life as ‘lifestyle’ as origin as source as resource, is Given: Equally – to every Body of Life; and that dominion is to those that are able to distribute this which is Given Freely, Equally to All – that no-one may need or desire anything that will cause this separation that now exist as ‘lifestyle’ on Earth." Bernard Poolman

"I commit myself to Call on those claiming to be experts in Economics, to remove their Fears and prejudices, and to walk in Forgiveness for what they have allowed on Earth, and to rectify the situation so that All Life may be Equal at the table, prepared for Each One to have enough to Eat and Drink, and to have a Home and a lifestyle worth Living to such measure that that is the Inheritance they give to All Children that may ever be born on Earth for All Time – as that is the Foundation of Eternal Peace and Love on Earth." Bernard Poolman


"I commit myself to show that when the starting point is life equally respected in each other, the fundamental premise to give so that you may receive is immediately grasped to such an extent that irrational fear evaporates." Bernard Poolman

“I commit myself to restore the common sense trust in the physical reality that is the giver of life, to restore order in an irrational , illusory world of consciousness.” Bernard Poolman

“I commit myself to demonstrate the oneness interdependency between all parts of the physical realm that together form the body that is life through which we have been destroying the Earth, and our life will end and therefore we cannot continue to live as if we are separate of the real reality without permanent consequence.” Bernard Poolman
