Part 4 Pork Barrel Scam: To Abolish The Fund Or Not?

In my last blog, i talked about the Surrender of the alleged 'mastermind'.

In this blog, i am looking at the solution proposed regarding the outbreak of the 'Pork Barrel Scam'.

There is a petition asking the Supreme court to strike down to controversial fund -  formerly called the Priority Development Assistance Fund:

The following quotes were taken from this link:

"In an interview with GMA News Online, Belgica said the respondents committed "grave abuse of discretion" when they allowed the implementation of the pork barrel system.
He said the fund system "violates the constitutional limits given to the executive and the legislative because they are able to spend money beyond what is approved by Congress since these are lump sum funds."
The 24 senators in the country receive P200 million each in PDAF, while the more than 200 congressmen and congresswomen of the House of Representatives are entitled to P70 million each."


"The controversial PDAF was once again thrown into the spotlight following allegations that businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles, who is currently detained in Laguna, figured in a P10-billion government fund scam that allegedly involves diverting the PDAF funds of several lawmakers to ghost foundations which she is said to have operated in the last decade."

What do i say to this?

The Abolition of the Pork Barrel Fund will NOT stop corruption.

The REAL Problem is Inequality/Poverty and to stop corruption, we have to provide a solution to this.

Here we can see the problem recurring within the 'Corruption Loop' which i posted in my last blog:
>Inequality/Poverty is a problem in society
>Government tries a temporary way to solve this problem and does not provide a permanent solution to the problem, so the problem persist.
> Politicians Fear not being re-elected so desires to help to be re-elected 
(fear of survival which fuels the desire for money and power to win)
> Politicians Desire to win the elections to get more money and power to survive in a competitive world
>the poor asks for help 
(fear of survival which fuels desire to survive through crime etc. to win)
>Politicians see there are funds in office for the poor
> Politicians sign documents to allocate funds to the Foundations who are not delivering what's promised
>The funds given to the foundations were not used to help the poor but was pocketed by the owners of the Foundation 
(fear of survival which fuels the desire to live life in luxury to win)
>The 'third whistleblower' was allegedly detained by the alleged mastermind
>The government agency responsible rescued the 'third whistleblower' from the condominium of the alleged mastermind
>The 'third whistleblower' gave some names of some politicians her former employer, the alleged mastermind talks to
>Another whistleblower who worked with the alleged mastermind detailed how they get funds to fund the fake Foundations
>The government issues a warrant of arrest to the alleged mastermind
>The alleged scammer hides/flees
>Money is offered as a reward for the surrender of the person 
>The alleged mastermind said she fears for her life, so, surrenders to President Aquino
and is now in custody
>Government tries to solve problem of corruption
>Government provides a temporary solution but not a permanent solution to end the problem of poverty/inequality
>Inequality continues
>corruption is still here
>Government provides a temporary solution but not a permanent solution to end the problem of poverty/inequality
>Inequality continues
>corruption is still here
>Government trying to provide a temporary solution but not a permanent solution to end the problem of poverty/inequality
>Inequality/Poverty continues

The Corruption Loop:
>Inequality/Poverty in the society
>Inequality/Poverty continues
>Corruption is still here
>Government provides a solution but not a solution to end the problem of poverty/inequality
>Inequality/Poverty continues
>Corruption is still here
>Government provides a solution but not a solution to end the problem of poverty/inequality
>Inequality/Poverty continues

How do we stop this?

The Personality of The Politician, The Alleged Mastermind and The Poor:

The politicians Desire for Money and Power
Fear of survival > Desire for money for power
The 'Alleged mastermind's' Desire for Money to live a luxurious life 
Fear of survival > Desire for money to live a luxurious life
The Poor People's Desire for Money to survive
Fear of survival >Desire to survive so commits crime

Inequality/Poverty in society impulse our Fears

Inequality/Poverty > Fear of survival >Desire to survive > Desire to have money

The REAL Solution is to Eliminate Poverty by giving the poor, unemployed, uneducated, elderly etc. a Basic/Living Income, Guaranteed

The removal of the 'pork barrel fund' will Not stop Corruption, Poverty or Inequality. 

The politician personality or the 'power hungry' and the 'money hungry' personalities in our society will want to look for other sources of money that will give them power, where they can get funds from to give to others so they will be liked and get a vote- to win the election in this competitive world. 

The surrender of the 'alleged mastermind' will not stop corruption - it will Not stop poverty either. People who has a 'mastermind' personality who is really the same type of personality as the first one 'power hungry and the money hungry' personalities  in our society will want to get money available somewhere for its own use - so they will have more money - to live a luxurious life - to win in a competitive world.

The poor will still be poor after being given help from these funds. What is given them is Not enough for them to survive from birth to death. They will still want to have money to survive - to win in a competitive world.

There will be more crime, more corruption, more masterminds.

We can see the 'inferior' personality of the poor and the 'superior' personality of the rich as the' alleged mastermind' and the politicians acting out the character of the 'superior personality' everywhere in our daily lives. 

Who creates the poor? Who creates corruption?

We do, in 'our within' - as  our minds,  and we create this also in our 'without' - as this world system because we are living in a holographic universe.

So, i suggest to stop creating this in 'our within' by forgiving ourselves for having accepted and allowed ourselves to not face our fears (such as fear of survival, then desiring to have a lot of money and power leading to many problems in society)  to instead, face it and see where this started. We can stop recreating these desires which are fueled by our fears within our mind ( which from my experience comes from seeing the poor suffering) and then sort out what's happening in society. 

We can then look at giving the poor their equal share by nationalizing resources given by the earth and the profit used to create dividends sufficient enough  to cover a Basic/Living Income creating a sustainable system where there's a balanced ecosystem of money on earth.

Let's create a world that gives a dignified life for all!
